Done early, getting caught up, sorta

Friday, October 02, 2009

I am getting things accomplished! Son has a b-day party to go to tomorrow. I got a card and gift on the way home from work and it is ready to go! I've got all my chores done for tomorrow and even have a little time to get some stuff done for DH!

At work, I'm hovering around 150 unread e-mails. I whittle it down each day, but it gains each night. I'm even getting some projects completed. YAY!!

Off to get the last couple of things done so I can get to bed at a half way decent hour.

Night all!

Good for you for getting caught up and in bed early. Which timezone are you?! It's 12:30 here!

I need a goal

Thursday, October 01, 2009

I mean a real goal. Not just try to eat good. Or try to exercise. I need a S.M.A.R.T. goal.

S = Specific
M = Measurable
A = Achievable
R = Realistic
T = Timely

There are two I can think of right now. Stay in my range for fiber 5 days of every week for the month of October.

Walk for at least 30 minutes during three of my son's football practices each week for the remainder of football season (three more weeks).

I'm sure there are many more areas that I can improve in, but we'll stick with these two for now.

    Those are excellent goals. I always set such vague ones...but then again, I am a little vague, so it works well for me

    I love it when a plan comes together.

Great idea too, especially the walking during the son's football practice. I know you'd rather be reading, but walking is a GREAT plan!

Enjoy your October, Rock on and Walk on!

My neck hurts (just started about an hour ago). Thought I would have more time to get stuff done...I was wrong! Really tired and I need to go pack my lunch for tomorrow and then head to bed. See you all on the flip side.

The oddest dreams occur....

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

when your sleeping habitat is changed.

Let's start with the fact that the fan on our air conditioner was making some odd noises on Saturday morning. We have central air and someone had changed the switch for the fan to on instead of auto. (No wonder I was always cold!) Because of the funky noises...and not wanting to completely ruin the unit...we turned the air off. The house was warmer than normal, but not too bad...the first day.

The second day, Sunday, DH was home. He's not as fond of fresh air as I am so the windows weren't open as much on Sunday. In fact, I came home at 8:30 at night (after my workout) and the house was shut up tight and HOT! And if I'm hot, it is HOT!!! I opened doors and windows, but not much could be done to cool down our bedroom...or so I thought.

DH brought in an industrial fan, plugged it in and turned it on high. I'm here to tell you that industrial fans are loud and can pump out the breeze! I slept very poorly for the first couple of hours (until I turned that darn thing off!). During that time, I had some strange dreams. The one I remember most vividly involved our boxer, Abby. She and I were playing a game, most likely tug/fetch. I tug on a toy until she lets go. Then I throw it and she fetches, repeat. Anyway, in my dream, she had a tongue like a frog. It was long and thin and would get wrapped around her head during our game. In fact, it would wrap onto itself and get stuck! I would need to unstick her tongue, kind of like Velcro. As soon as it was unstuck, her tongue would snap back into her mouth (like a tape measure) and we would start all over!

I'm sure there is some great meeting hidden there, but I'm too tired to figure it out. Let's just say, I'm glad the air conditioner is fixed and we won't have the industrial fan on tonight!

    It is amazing what happens when things change. I am glad that you can remember your dreams to share with us! I can never totally remember mine, which might be a good thing!

Look at me go!

I kicked some butt yesterday and today! Yesterday I worked out, started laundry, cleaned myself up, made chocolates for Bunco, went to the library and got my son to his game at noon (a 30-minute drive away!). Watched his team win their first game this season!!! (Even without an actual win, this was the best game they played yet!). Got home, completed laundry, worked on stuff for DH and then headed to Bunco (didn't win), came home, sparkled folks and got my daughter from the dance (yes, she had a blast) and went to bed.

Today, took Scooby for his grooming appointment, ate breakfast at a buffet and did NOT need to puke afterward (usually feel the need!), made menus and my grocery list and headed to the store. Picked up Scooby, came home, made lunch and started working on more stuff for DH. Made dinner, went to the gym and have one more thing to do and I can go to bed! Yay me!!! I've accomplished everything I set out to do this weekend. How incredibly cool is that!!! I don't know if it is because I kicked butt or because I set my expectations too low. Either way, I'll take it!!! LOL!

Night all. See you on the flip side!

I don't know the last time that I got everything DONE on my list. Either I over estimate what I can get done, or I run out of steam, LOL

Actually, I got winded just reading all of YOUR activity.
