School board budget committee meeting 2nite! Probably no time 4 workout!

Wednesday, May 02, 2007

So we have already presented the 2009-2010 school budget to the county board so now I guess we just have to wrap up a few loose ends before breaking until next year. The meeting will take up my whole evening so I highly doubt that I will have time for a workout. Maybe I will have time for a Bean workout.

My workout yesterday went rather well. I am still rebuilding my arms, shoulders, and chest workout from when I messed up my shoulder before my hunnys grandmother died. But all in all, my elliptical workout went well and the Bowflex seemed to be OK.


It is pretty funny watching the you know what hit the fan!!

It has been funny watching seeing how everyone is scrambling now that I have followed thru on my desire to get out of this job that is slowly killing me!! The manager I spend most of my time supporting is having one cow after another!! And the guy who is going to get most of my work dumped on him is already worrying about the overtime he is going to be stuck with! All I can say is that you all should have thought about that before treating me like Scarlett O'hara's horse on the trip back to Tara! I am not keeling over from overuse like that poor horse did!!

So it was kind of neat walking into my house last night while there was still some evening sun! I had a good workout on the elliptical and the Bowflex. Once I am free of this work overload situation, I am really looking forward to many more good workouts on both the elliptical and Bowflex!! And then saying goodbye to my larger size clothes and welcome back to my skinny ones!!

    I can see the realization hitting their faces. LOL!! Good for you, that's all I can say. It is right to take care of yourself in this way.

I did it! I accepted the transfer to another job!!

Monday, April 30, 2007

After several agonizing days, I accepted the transfer to the job next door! I complain so bitterly about the overtime where I am at now and the last thing I want to do is to jump from the proverbial frying pan into another proverbial fire. I asked several times about the overtime amounts and workload distribution. I even checked with some previous managers for their opinion on what I was considering. I feel pretty good about the transfer and it is such a relief to know my days of working from 8 am to 10 pm are NUMBERED!! So when I tell my children if they do not like something about their lives they either learn to find a way to live with it or change it: I have done exactly what I preach to them!! I have no clue what my last day here will because as a transfer, I am not subject to the customary 2 weeks notice. But, I am moving forward and starting to do what it will take to reclaim my personal life!!

Otherwise, I am doing my best to stick to my nutrition and fitness plans. I had a lot of things to take care of yesterday so I ended up doing my Bean workout. I plan to leave work today at a decent time and then elliptical and Bowflex when I get home.


New hairdo for me! New offcampus apartment for daughter!

Sunday, April 29, 2007

Yesterday we drove down to the college my daughter is at. She was unable to get a dorm for next year so we have all been looking for an offcampus apartment for her. Her dad and I searched online while she went and visited them. We went to her favorite of all the places and filled out the paperwork to cosign after we took a tour and checked out the apartment and its surroundings. We then ate lunch at this marvelous deli not far from the hair salon where my DD works part time. I was good and ordered a ham and Swiss cheese sub. Very yummy sandwich from the bread to ham and cheese! We then went to the salon so my daughters favorite stylist could color and cut my hair. She did a pretty good job but my stubborn gray rejected some of the color so I will need to fix that later. She also tried a new haircut on me. Generally my hunny and I like it but our son does not. Oh well.

I slept in late this morning and am getting ready to do my elliptical and Bowflex workouts when I finish getting my Sparks stuff caught up.

    Sounds like a fun weekend! I cannot imagine my daughter in college. Is it scary? I can't think of her being away, it makes me sad. I guess they grow up enough though by then that you can let them go, for a bit!

It's hard for me to eat right when I'm out of my normal schedule. Good for you for sticking to it! Have a good week!

Cannot believe DD first college year is almost done!!

Saturday, April 28, 2007

We will be leaving later this morning to go check out the apartment my daughter found for next year (no housing available on-campus for her next year!!) and then get my hair colored and cut by my daughters favorite hair dresser at the salon my daughter works at part time. Should be interesting!! And then after my baby gets off work, we will probably have dinner together and then head back home with most of her stuff since she has less than a week left at school. If it was not for a final exam on Wednesday, she would be home right now as I type!! Son bailed on coming with us tomorrow and opted to hang out with a friend that lives in Ohio who was here visiting for the weekend.

Otherwise, I was able to get in a pretty good workout on Friday night on my elliptical (30 minutes.) and the Bowflex. Unfortunately, my Bowflex workout did have one major interruption due to the small blow up we had because my son has decided he bail on coming with us to help us pack up her stuff. He then put up a fight for us to not take his truck but instead take the 2-1/2 hours in a minivan which is leaking oil. No thank you. I have already been in a vehicle that was on fire and that was pretty scary!! But I finally got him to agree that we needed the space for all of her stuff and that he was letting his dad down by not coming with us.
