Whew! School has started

Saturday, August 29, 2009

School has started. That has taken some of the pressure off me. For the last two weeks, I have been overwhelmed at work and stressed. I've been working at this small college for six months now and I've taken over for the person who had previously helped them with software issues. We haven't had to call him lately and that makes me feel good. I have learned so much at this new job! I have a lot of great new skills to put on my resume.

I have done very well with my eating some days and badly on other days. I hope to level that out. I was proud that on Thursday, when we went to Golden Corral and had the buffet, I had a plate of vegetables and a plate of fruit. I was very satisifed and I hope that I didn't consume too many calories. I haven't been exercising regularly, but I have been walking around the college campus as much as possible. When someone needs help, I walk to their office.

I've gotten accustomed to my Blackberry Storm and I really like it! We got MobiTV on our phones to replace XM satellite radio and save money. XM has gone out of our price range in the last few months. MobiTV is awesome! Of course, the screen is tiny. But, that's ok. While I was walking between buildings at my school, I turned on MobiTV for a moment and got - commercials! Then, when walking back, I decided to turn it on again and caught - more commercials! LOL!

We don't have to mow this weekend. This will be our week to stock up on supplies at WalMart. I am trying to fix up my office at work as much as possible without making it inconsistent with everyone else's office. I am going to take a few old bookcases to work when it isn't raining. If the bookcase sticks out of the back of my CRV, I don't want it to get wet! I am getting small containers to hold the contents of my "kitchen" that I have in my office. I have been able to keep eating pretty healthy by taking breakfast and lunch to work with me. It helps a lot that there are no convenient restaurants around.

This weekend, I plan to eat and track carefully. I plan to do my weight workout. I hope that everyone has a wonderful weekend!

    Supplying your office sounds like all kinds of fun! Especially when you stop and think that it's really your home-away-from-home because you spend almost as much time there as you do at home! You'll have to take a pix and show us when you get it all the way you want it. Are you putting a little cabinet in to serve as your kitchen so you have a counter to work on? We did that in one room at church where we have fellowship time. It worked great for setting out coffee and stuff.

    Sounds like you have a solid plan for your weekend; I know you will do great! I am glad some of the stress has let up at work. It's hard to cope with that day after day, even though a fast pace at work tends to make the day go by faster, doesn't it? Your Blackberry Storm sounds like a cool phone -- I love my iPhone because of all the cool stuff you can do besides just talk and text. I don't have MobiTV I don't think but sometimes I play games or check on Facebook when I am bored!
