Weight Loss Update

For the first week back to Weight Watchers........drum roll.....I've lost 4.2 pounds. Woohoo for me!

Some good looking out

I received a phone call from one of my friends who finally has a job and stated that her supervisor (who I personally know from temporarily working at the same agency) is interested in at least interviewing me for a position that will eventually be going County (government job!). Woohoo! So now I have to send off my resume and fill out a county application. I still haven't heard back from the other agency that I interviewed with this week-should hear next week.
At least things are starting to look better.

Castle anyone?

First, thank you to all who are supporting me with the WW adventure. So far, I think I'm doing okay. We'll find out on Saturday.
I had a job interview yesterday for a company that doesn't do anything like I do now. I'm interested and I should find out by the end of next week if I go onto a second interview.
So until then, I continue with a job I'm really disliking.

And so another journey has begun

I've rejoined Weight Watchers this morning and have had the highest recording of my weight. I knew it was bad. I just didn't realize it was THAT bad. So I have a lot of work ahead of me but I know that I can get it done...just really need to crack down on myself and do what I need to do.

I'm in shock from a conversation that I had with one of my best friends last night. I hadn't heard from this friend in about a year and they informed me that they are now a parent! This was a friend, like me, who never really wanted a family and certainly not a year ago when I last spoke with them. So I'm a little hurt that they did not let me know this or even respond with a hi or happy birthday when I attempted to contact them. I certainly wish them the best of luck.

Where I've been

I had the pleasure of dogsitting for my friend Julie this past weekend as she went to Florida to celebrate her birthday. Lucy was absolutely no problem. I managed to get some stitching and latch hooking done while I watched cable (something that I don't have at home).

Where can you find me?

Woohoo! NFL season has Sundays watching football are back! So, yea, you can find me on my couch, most likely with stitching in hand, watching football this Sunday and for the rest of the Sundays through next year.

Tropical Storm Hanna

Well, this is my first official tropical storm/hurricane that I've experienced in my 32 years of life. My cousin yelled at me last night for not being prepared with the alcohol...I'm a newbie...what does she expect? :) So despite the damn moron who called my phone twice and then hung up when I told them to stop calling me without even an apology at 3am and the cats annoying the hell out of me....I could have slept through the storm. Just lots of wind which has died down and we're just getting lots and lots of rain right now. So nothing major.

Labor Day 2008

I headed up to my parents in Kentucky to see them and their new house. I had another surprise waiting me when I got new "sister." Her name is Teddy and she's about 4 years old. My dad has been wanting a dog since forever. He always wanted my brother and I to have that experience. My mom basically had been putting her foot down against it for 30+ years. So my dad finally took it upon himself to go to the local animal shelter and adopt her. She's so laid back. She hasn't barked once. She loves having her belly rubbed. She has a few quirks like she doesn't like toys?!?!?!?
As for my parents' house, it's nice...certainly not my childhood home but it is nice. But they live sooooo far out into the country, I was shocked. As were they when they bought the place.
Hope everyone else has had a nice Labor Day weekend here in the States.
