well I hadn't wanted to but I can sure use the points. I had a not too unproductive afternoon (inspite of battling a cold/sore throat all day) cleaned up the back yard a bit (over 2 hours) so that made me feel a bit better - yesterday got a Dear John letter from the university- "all the candidates were well qualified and it was a hard decision" (yeah well you can live with the consequences of that decision- NOT me).

    Thanks . Yeah they do suck . Especially when you thought you had it in the bag.
Sometimes I feel like they have already given the job to someone but they still have to go through the motions to make it seem legitimate.

    It seems like summer colds are going around right now. 2 people my hubby works with have them.

We need to do some yard work and it's too hot.

My son gets a lot of those Dear John letters. They suck. I'm so sorry to hear that you didn't get the job.

You know what I STILL don't get is why time goes by SO FAST when you don't want it to and so SLOW sometimes at work??

    Hubby says this at least once a week and my son does as well. LOL.

There was a Sparkpeople BLOG that was entitled "Have Fun and Stay Safe in the Summer Heat" which then asked what I thought was STUPID question "what do you do to stay cool" (oh I just play wax candle and melt on the sidewalk!!! ) so I went and posted
" I stay in my IGLOO or find a walrus to shade under."
One of my Dad's uncles was an airline pilot (in the late 50's and early sixties) and he had some tourists show up in SUMMER with parkas and skis expecting it to be winter. Also my daughter's ex's Mom was complaining she could NEVER live in Canada its too cold. (I bet its not as different to Atlanta as you might think ) Too bad they broke up before I could prove her wrong.
Before anyone decides to flame me -know this both of my Grandmothers were born in the US.

    I have always been fond of igloos. My hubby made them as a child. It's probably kind of dangerous on retrospect. LOL.

Walruses have funky breath. I think I would shade myself under something else. LOL.

That is so funny about the parkas in summer. LOL.

    I happen to like your igloo comment! It made me laugh! Some people are just clueless.

Well today I didn't do a lot but I did walk over a couple of hours at a local park( and also tried to fit in as much stair climbing as I could !! ). So that was quite enjoyable I think I am going to work on the fence and a few other projects later on during the week and try to make use of this time off (instead of wasting it in front of the computer or the television- funny how the 2 most evil appliances as far as wasters of time go are related).

  I think you did great today. You are right about our two evils, they take
up to much of our time.

I slept in today ( I think I got about eight and a half hours sleep) it was GREAT to get up late for a change. I went for a walk this afternoon and am planning to try to get in all my cardio today for a change I did a bit of gardening today although I didn't track it as I mostly watered. I am going to take next week off as my doctor advised me to to avoid getting an infection in my scalp. I have some things planned and am going to get a welders cap so I can keep any crap out of my wound as I think I have to go to work for the week after I can't go to get the stitches out until after the third of July.

    You definitely need to keep it clean. Sounds like you had a great Sunday. Maybe you can sleep in some more this week.
