At work today, I reduced the number of unread e-mails to just under 200. Of course, I left early to watch my daughter play volleyball, so it'll be back up to 250+ in the morning, but I did knock it down!
I'm caught up with everything at home and it's only 10:23.
So...what am I forgetting? What was I supposed to do that I didn't? Who's going to yell at me tomorrow for not doing it today? I don't know and I don't think I care enough to stay up any longer and find out! LOL!

And all of you who are know I'm right! LOL! If I were an irresponsible anything (adult, child, warmonger, etc.) I could have slept in much later than I did. I could have taken a nap. I would have sat on my butt and read my book until my buns were numb! LOL!
But, no, my parents had to instill a work ethic and a conscience. Dang it! I did sleep in until a little after 9:00. Since no one else was up until 8:30, I have no guilty feelings about that at all! After eating the delicious breakfast DH prepared, I started getting stuff done. I went to the gym. I did two loads of laundry. I made dinner for both tonight and tomorrow night. I started auctions. I braided my daughter's hair. I cooked my veggies for the next couple of days (and did the dishes from that!). Now I'm going to fill out paperwork for FSA reimbursements. When all that is done, it will be time for bed.
All I wanted to do, however, was find out what "terrible" secrets Robert Langdon finds in Dan Brown's newest book "The Lost Symbol"! (He's the guy who wrote "The DaVinci Code") Regardless of whether I believe everything he writes, it is an entertaining story. And I want to be entertained! Whaaaaaa!!!
Okay...done being a baby. Back to adulthood. Hope you are all enjoying your responsible lives! LOL!

Okay, so I'm short every night (and day and morning hee hee). I mean that this will be a short blog. I slept in a little bit. Just enough to not have time to do anything but get laundry started before heading to my son's football game. I was there for a little over 3 1/2 hours. Came home gathered my library stuff and ran the errands. Finally ordered my daughter's contacts!!!
Came home, did more laundry, took photos for auctions and then DH took us out to dinner (Johnny Carino's Yummy!!). Now that dinner has worn off, I'm going to go to the gym. Need to work off some of that 1500 calories I ate...yep...just for dinner. And, I only ate half of my entree!! Dang!
See y'all on the flip side!

Originally, my plans were to sleep in tomorrow as late as I could and still be up and ready for my son's game. This translates to me being able to sleep until 10:00 to comfortably get to the field on time.
But...I have 7.08 miles to go in two days on the Walk to Vegas challenge on the Idaho team. I took day 2 of my Nutrition Boot camp class today and I realized that I hadn't met any of the goals I put out for myself this week. I need to run to CostCo to order contacts for my daughter. I need to run an errand for DH. I get to go to the library. I want to go to the gym. I want to finish my book so I can start the next one (The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown!!). I want to start some auctions for DH for extra $$. I should clean the house. Laundry will need to be done.
So, we'll see how I feel when I wake up in the morning. DH will leave around 7 and wake me up to say good bye. I will decide then what wins...extra sleep or extra to-do's that will be ta-done!

do not mix! My boxer is now almost five months old and very much a puppy. Her favorite game is to play tug-of-war with either her ball or her teddy bear (but not the chew toy specifically designed for tug-of-war )
So, as I'm typing and reading blogs and responding to e-mails, etc., Abby comes up with her teddy bear. We play tug until I get it, then I throw it for her to go get and bring back. Repeat. And repeat. And repeat. Anyway, we repeated until she got bored...and brought me her ball instead! LOL!! I don't know how many of you are aware, but boxers tend to slobber...especially when they are chewing on something. I had to get up and wash my hands before I could type or use the mouse again!
She did decide that a doll (not hers) and a sock (again, not hers) were more fun to chew than her toys. I used some of the techniques that our instructor showed us and they seem to be working! The second time she got something she wasn't supposed to have, it only took me 20 times of saying "Drop it" for her to actually drop it! (Versus the 100 times it took me the first time! LOL!!)
She's ready for bed now. As soon as everyone's bedding is dry, we are all going to bed. No....I washed their beds. They didn't pee on it (nor did I!) and my bedding is just fine, thank you! LOL!
