friday randomness

*random posts are my favorite. they are easy to read too!

*i'm at SBUX relaxing in the cafe 'til I can pick up E...he's napping right now.

*i'm clearly missing something on this "glee" show...I watched a few minutes of it a couple wks ago and I don't see the attraction. oh well. to each his own. i don't have time for more TV shows anyway.

*i finally received my magic yellow paper from the school district which states that i'm cleared to be a substitute teacher.

*i went to FOUR elementary schools today to get put on their substitute list.

*i'm hoping i get called soon to sub on a few mondays & fridays. it will help offset the daycare costs and maybe even buy a few Christmas presents.

*i don't know why i'm excited for Christmas...probably for E really because otherwise, there is no reason...I have NO money, I hate life @ home most of the time & we are spending Christmas day with my mom and her husband...and well, her husband is NOT my favorite person & I hate pretending I like someone when I really don't all that much. it's a long story & i have repeatedly tried to like him. just when things are looking up, something happens that resets me to my 'not-liking-him' point.

*i was going to go back and temp at the Talbots call center this year...but I would have spent my ENTIRE weekend in training (9-4:30 both days) and when i calculated how much little money I would make, I decided it just wasn't worth losing the time with E.

*i feel like crying on a daily basis lately. that sucks.

*i ran (& walked) 4 miles @ the gym today. I also did some weights & a brief 10 minutes on the elliptical machine. I should have done more as I later realized I won't get to the gym at all next week. oops!

*on monday E and I are going to meet up with his girlfriend and her mommy for a playdate (hence no gym for me). we haven't seen each other in about 3 weeks. he'll only be at daycare for 2 days next week and the best part...we still get to pay the full week's tuition. damn that hurts!!

*SBUX has THE cutest Christmas plush characters...a reindeer & a teddy bear. love!

*i'm still rocking the WW diet. i even restrained myself to only a TALL Chai while here at SBUX (4 points). i'm looking forward to weighing in on Monday. my scale @ home has me down about 2lbs but i'm hoping (& praying) for at least one more...that would put me at my lowest weight post-baby. I would still have about 20 more pounds to go though. If i'm down 10lbs by Christmas I will be SUPER happy!!! And I think it's totally do-able.

*there are really some interesting characters at SBUX right now. great for people watching.

You still did a damn good workout! I'm excited about Christmas, too. I think it has a lot to do with the economy and how crappy people have been feeling in general for the last year. We all need a little magic and happy right now.

Hi! Glee is actually kind of fun but right now it is a little slow. The first few episodes were really funny and quite good but I watched last night and even I thought it was a little flat - and I really like it.

As for your people watching, check out their noses while you're there ;)

Have a great weekend and good luck with WW!

Congrats on your sub certificate! I'm sure they will be calling you soon!

Glad to hear WW is still going well! I'm starting tomorrow so I will keep you updated.

I'm a member of WW, and have totally fallen off the wagon lately. All of your comments about your success recently has been good to see. Hopefully it will motivate me to get my butt in gear again. Good luck with the weigh-in. And I hope everything else gets better soon.

That sucks about having to pay for daycare, but I guess I can see it from their perspective - if the parents didn't have to pay when it was a holiday, it's the same as an employee getting forced unpaid holiday leave.

I'm sorry you feel like crying most days. I am with you. You should just give in, it makes you feel better. Kind of.

Awesome job on the diet!!! Thats fantastic!!!

I've got so much to say! So I'll do my commenting in bullets as well :P

*I think Glee is great, but only because I sing, so I totally get that some people just don't like it.

*Congrats on getting the magic yellow paper!! :)

*I am semi excited for Xmas too... which is weird, cause normally I'm not, and I'm totally alone in SYR right now.

*Yeah, probably a good idea that you passed up that retail opp for the season! Spend your precious time with E instead girly! :)

*i feel like crying too and I'm not sure why. Let's cry together.

*You are going to continue to ROCK the WW thing!

Congrats on doing so well with WW! I can't wait til I can afford to go back! I love it! Hopefully things start opening up soon with the subbing. I know that the flu has knocked out a lot of teachers out here so I've been working like crazy.

P.S. Did O ever decide on whether or not he was going to do the Reserves thing?
