No workout today!

Thursday, February 03, 2011

Another busy day for me today! Can't wait til Friday. It will be slow then. So I will not get a chance to workout today! I will get my 2 walks in during my breaks.

We are having a going away lunch today at work for one our co-workers that is moving to another Department. She will be missed. Then this afternoon we will have cake for her.

The girls are playing tonight. They are all ready and have practiced extra hard this week. I hope they do a great job tonight. Since it is an away game there is no time for me to squeeze in a workout. I will double up on some of the exercises tomorrow when I hit the gym. I plan on going tomorrow in the evening and taking the kids. My daughter will get to go if they win tonight, because then there is no practice tomorrow evening. I am hoping for a win.

I will try to update status of the game tonight if I can, if not you know I will post it tomorrow.

Happy Thursday everyone!

    Hey girl!! It's been awhile. Good luck to the girls tonight!! It sounds like they have been practicing hard and had a great game the other night.
I'll hope for a calmer day for you tomorrow. How was the baby shower this past weekend?

Busy Week!

Wednesday, February 02, 2011

OMG! has it been a busy week for me already. We got new computers and a upgrade to Windows 7 with Microsoft office 2010. It is great, but what happened to the training that we should have received before it was updated. I can get around in it and it works so much faster, but I would have liked a training session first. They are offering us training now, but what's the point? I was out of the office yesterday at an off site training class and there was a lot of good information there. Now I have to present it at our staff meeting this morning. No big deal. I like to share.

My son has been slacking on his homework and telling me that he has completed it and turned it in, but he hasn't. So no video games for a week. I think that was the problem, now he is working his behind off.

My daughter is doing great in school. They won their game last night 44-11. They played a good game. She has a game tomorrow in Yuba City (Fog City). I was not going to attend, but another parent volunteered to drive me there, so I said okay. She said the game would not be the same without me running our cheering section. LOL!

I started the Home for the Holidays workout program from M & F Hers (Dec issue) yesterday. I like the bands. I will have toned arms in no time. I can start going back to my own gym now. So I will be getting up at 4:30 AM to get my workouts out of the way every morning, except for on Wednesday nights, I do a 60 minute Step class. I will start that on Monday 2/7/11. I like to start new things at the beginning of the weeek.

Have a great rest of the day everyone!

    It does sound like a busy week. Yes, a little training before the upgrade would have been nice.
I'm glad your son is getting back with the program. Amazing what a little video game deprivation will do. ;-)
YAY for the ladies!!! They are doing awesome!!
I'll have to check out the Home for the Holidays after I finish the one I'm doing. At some point, I should start getting the magazine. I have subscribed but haven't received my first issue yet. It is nice to start at the beginning of the week. Easier to get the mind frame necessary.
Have a fabulous rest of the day!!

Wonderful Weekend, except the dryer broke

Monday, January 31, 2011

I got up early on Saturday morning to finish up some laudry that I had started. I had 1 load in the dryer and 1 load in the washer. The washer stopped and usually when the washer is done the clothes in the dryer are dry. So I looked at the dryere indicator and it still had the red button by the wet, which meant the clothes were not dry. Uhh strange, I opened up the dryer and they were cold and wet, no heat to the clothes, ugh! So I ran the dryer for a little bit longer and still nothing. So now I have 2 loads of wet clothes that I could not dry and the shirt I wanted to wear was in the first load. No big deal, pick something else. So I had to contact Sears to come out and check out the dryer and there is no available appointments until Feb 9. Oh no that is too long. So I got creative last night. I washed a few items at a time and humg them upstairs to dry overnight. It worked, but what will I do for the rest of the week. UGH!

I spent the weekend with my sister , she had a baby shower and it was nice. There was so much food there. I went straight for the salad, grapes, baked chicken, and the cauliflower broccoli mix, with no dressing. I was so proud of myself and really happy that there was healthy food available. I think my mom had me in mind when she made the veggie mix. Love that lady so much.

There were so many gifts that I had to put half in my SUV (Honda Pilot) and the other half in sisters car (Chevy Envoy), there was only enough room in my car for my daughter to sit up front and in sisters car for her 3 year olds carseat. I helped her put it all away, hang up clothes, put diapers away and set up part of the room.

Sunday we went to breakfast at this country kitchen, oh man was the food good. I over did it there but walked most of it off when sister and I went shopping. We went to Babies R Us and to Target to get the items that she did not receive from her registry. She received about 600.00 in cash and gift cards. Large baby shower. We got the stroler and put it together and a few more items for the baby's room. She was so excited. I had a really great time with her and her family. My niece is so funny and so cute!

Have a great day everyone!

    Sounds like a fun day!! Makes me miss my niece and nephews. They live about 500miles away and I never get to see them :(
My niece is the same age as yours and my twin nephews are just the most handsome 1 years olds EVER!! Completely identical in appearance but completely opposite in personality.

    No fun not having a dryer. I'm sorry you have to wait so long to have Sears come.
I'm glad you had healthy food options. That's always nice.
We've got a Southern Kitchen right near us that has excellent food. I'm sure it's a lot like the Country Kitchen you went to.
Sounds like a great weekend!!

Short Blog for the Day

Saturday, January 29, 2011

This will be real short as I am pressed for time this morning.

Doing a little bit of laundry before I go to my sister's for her baby shower. I am so excited, this is her 2nd child. She has a 3 year old daughter and doc says this one should be a boy! I get to help set up the room as I did with my niece so much fun. I still have go out and get a gift for today I figured I would do that on the way out, since Target is right by the freeway and just keep going.

Have a wonderful Saturday everyone, be safe, the fog here is gone, but it is raining today!

I am so happy that today is Friday! It has been a long week and I am ready for it to be over.
The girls won their game last night by 10 points woohoo! Thanks everyone for rooting them on. :) My daughter got her first technical foul ever! The player from the other team charged her, which should have been, but it wasn't called, then my daughter hit the floor hard and the girl walked on her head as she hit the floor, so to protect her head my daughter grabbed her leg and the referee called a technical on my daughter. The nerve of him. The other girl missed both the shots, because she knew she wrong for walking on my daughter's head in the first place. Then we got the ball back and hit 4 back to back 3 pointers that sealed the game. Our girls did not allow any points in the 3rd quarter from their opponents and only had them score on them twice in the 4th quarter. My daughter is ok no injury to the head, but what the heck Mr. No See Referee!

Well the girls have no practice today WooHoo! Good break for them and for the parents who have been at everything this week, we all need a break tonight, Thanks Coach!

I am going to take some me time tonight after work. I am going to get my nails done, I have broken a few in the last 2 days. So I will go do that and go home and relax for a bit. I am going to get my workout done today at lunch so I will be done with it when I get home.

I am going to my sisters tomorrow for her baby shower. It will be so much fun, she always puts on good parties, but there will be lots of food there. I have the will power and I will make healthy choices. I am going to stay over night to help her set up the baby's room and spend some time with my niece (3). She has a huge hill by her house if I am feeling lucky I might challenge the bother in law to a power walk up and back. We'll see out that works outs.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Friday and I will try to check in over the weekend! TGIF

Have a great workout at lunch and do get your nails done. You certainly deserve to pamper yourself a bit.
