I know a drugstore cowgirl so afraid of getting bored...
Okay so I blinked and this week flew by. I’ve been so tired this week that it’s basically been auto-pilot mode. That’s not like me tho. I love to blog, I love to comment, but at work I’ve had to actually do work so my blogging time was cut way too short this week. Ohh what I wouldn’t give to take my computer & my desk & hit it repeatedly with a bat like the coolest dudes ever did in the movie “Office Space;” I think I have enough pieces of flare for the day thank you very much. Hehe. Tonight I have to do my submission for my Writer’s group which I’ve neglected to talk about lately but I am still a member & still struggling a little bit with my zombie novel. This year that will be one of my main goals to get some organizational handle on it. The group is helping but I need more drive. I’m hoping as the fall season rolls in & when I have my own place I’ll have the much needed quality time. =)
I can’t wait to move into my condo. Every day when I come home from work I glance hopefully over at my future home. I still don’t know my closing date for when I can move in but I should know soon. I took a lovely trip to Ikea with CJ & I’m looking forward to the day when I can take some of those awesome items home. CJ is a kickass boyfriend but he kinda gave me wayyyy too many boxes so my parent’s place is too full to bring home some more goodies. Soon tho.
Pretty much everyone I know is helping me out with the dreaded furniture ordeal. I never realized how much furniture actually is!! Omg couches are like the most expensive pieces ever! Luckily CJ has an old couch from his old apartment he’s going to lend me til I can afford my own. My friend Debra has an extra microwave to give me, with a spice rack & a bookcase she isn’t using in her place. My Aunt Mary has coffee mugs to give me, my grandparents have dishes & champagne glasses, & my friend Pat is making me a throw blanket for my future bed & …. It makes me happy. I CAN’T remember the last time I’ve been this happy. Truly.
It’s been madness these past couple days & it has caught up with me in a certain category. I was at CJ’s last night & he had a proper scale. I gained 10 pounds in the past month. That’s not terrible but I have a pair of pants that isn’t fitting me anymore. Yeah, Red flag. I need to go back to the gym & I need to watch what I eat. I was in the Shop Rite last night & glanced over at a magazine cover & saw a picture of Jennifer Hudson. Wow she looks amazing. I remember her on American Idol & I give her so much credit for proving Simon wrong. She has a beautiful voice & an amazing personality and did go far with her career. She’s so motivating in her “Healthy” transformation. She lost weight & she feels like she is at a healthy, comfortable weight. That is EXACTLY what I want to achieve. Why not start today? Sounds great to me.
I gotta rush to work, ahh the beauty of coffee in the morning, it really wake you up. I got a great night sleep & I’m ready to push forward!! Who’s with me? =) Have a great weekend everyone!! =)
