~I'm determined to finish my book tonight "Seeing Me Naked" it's a super cute, realistic, chick-lit story. (i hope by posting the name of the book I don't get all kinds of weirdos visiting my blog) I'm also excited to move on to a new book, with a slightly deeper story.
~As I was reading last night, I came across this line in the book "I wish I could get Superman to run around the earth enough times to take me back in time so I could take it back." I cannot tell you HOW MANY TIMES I have made this same statement in my life...not just recently, although maybe more often recently. I always remember that part of the Superman movie too- you know, where he's flying around the earth to avoid Lois' car from going in the crevice formed by the earthquake & ultimately killing her. How cool would it be if there really was a Superman or at least the possibility of time going backwards...even for a moment.
~I think I'm really going to have to sink myself into the stack 'o books on my nightstand in an effort to escape the reality that is my crap-tastic life right now.
~I'm so excited to have found REALLY YUMMY Iced Chai @ the local little coffee shop here on campus. SBUX - you can keep your $4.00 Chais!
~I also had a delicious little hummus pita sandwich from the same coffee shop. Yum!
~I fell off the diet-wagon terribly this past weekend. It was a combination of depression, not caring and being @ my step-sisters house, where no one watches what they eat.
~I received an invitation to write for a website (which shall remain nameless for now). I find this bizarre as I don't consider myself a particularly good writer and I typically only write about day-to-day stuff (aka: my crap-tastic life)...no deep thought topics here really. I'm going to let that request simmer for a while. Not sure what to make of it.
~I'm sorry to be such a Debbie Downer lately. It's been a rough few weeks and my life has hit an all-time low, I just hope the pendulum starts to swing the other way and soon.
~Excited that I posted a few things on Craigslist for sale and have sold one and have someone interested on the other. Thank goodness because I am B.R.O.K.E.
~I love to bake and last week I noticed that I was able to de-stress while baking. I think I need to do some more baking this week.
~Blog stats are interesting. Now that traffic has died down since being "Blog of Note", I average about 150 hits per day. For some reason, unknown to me, I had 309 hits on May 12th. I guess everyone was interested in finding out how the 1st night of weaning had gone.
~I was going over my work hours yesterday and tracking them in a spreadsheet since I can't use my timesheet for that. See, I'm obligated to work 20 hours, but often work 22-24 but cannot get paid for the overage. Instead, I can take them as Comp Time. I was excited to find that I have enough hours to take the week of June 15th off and still have time to accrue more hours to take the week off in August to go to Myrtle Beach (if we still go). Yay for time off!!
~My new favorite word is "crap-tastic" and I have to thank Emily (private blog, can't link) for that. I love it!! It's so applicable to my life right now.
