I feel Like a Ping-Pong Ball

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

I feel like a Ping-Pong ball bouncing back and forth. The last semester of college has begun for my youngest and I am spending this week bouncing back and forth between NC and TN.

We went up on Monday to speak with his professors and we were thrilled that we saw them all without having to hunt anyone down. J got all his questions answered and was able to search for the person who will ultimately oversee one of his classes. Hooray we got school settled! (Ping)

Next step was to reopen the apartment and get settled. Since we were told that one of J's classes would meet today we went to reconnect cable. Walked right in and got it done. When we left there was a line to the door. Got back to the apartment and while my son hooked everything up I cleaned. We then drove home. (Pong)

Yesterday morning he received a call saying that he had a meeting in the afternoon. I knew this so wasn't surprised when he packed up the rest of his stuff and left around noon. I had a nice quiet day!

Today I will be back on the road to TN. Seems the one teacher never posted when class would meet. I need this class settled before I can relax. Also need to take some food up and go the grocery store. So I am bouncing back across state lines. Ping Pong

On top of all that my weight is fluctuating 2 pounds. Last week it was up. This week it is down. Through my journey I have set small weight loss goals for myself. Now that I am within 10 pounds of what the government considers a healthy weight I am struggling to get to that point. Actually I am struggling to reach the downward slide of that 10 (really only want to lose 5) pounds. Ping Pong

So I will vacuum my house, get ready to get back in the car and Ping myself back to TN.

I wish you all a wonderful day without the Ping or the Pong!
