Christmas in January

Yesterday, after many attempts in scheduling, I was able to use the gift certifcate that Joey got me for a massage and facial. It was wonderful and very relaxing. It was done at a local school and I had students for both. I enjoyed the massage more than the facial. Not a big surprise really. So a big thank you to Joey!

Seasons of Love

Saw the musical Rent last night for my 5th or 6th time. Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp, the original Roger and Mark, were part of this touring production. I've seen Adam in a couple of other productions, such as Aida, and both were fantastic. The woman who played Mimi was the best that I have seen to date. It was a great show and I highly recommend everyone to check it when they can.

Pretty...but yucky

These are pictures from my living room window of the snow in NC. Pretty to look at but a bitch to drive in

Weight Loss Update

For those of you keeping score. Down 3 for a total of 26!

Irony? Karma? You decide

So, it's the coldest night in years for North Carolina and our apartment's complex's power goes out at around 5am. Sigh. Luckily it was only out for a couple of hours but it still got really cold inside.

Been basically a year

In a few days, it will have been a year for Joey and I being together. And what a long year it's been. Neither one of us knows where the future is going to take us. We have our ups and our downs. I think that we're both just taking everything one day at a time.

Work Anguish Continues

Well, last night my friend and coworker basically had it out with our supervisor about Idiot Boy. Yesterday was just non-stop stupid questions about basic things that he should already weeks ago. Don't know if it was a lack of sleep or brain cells. So needless to say, the patience of the other members of the team is basically down to zero. We are all ready to snap at him at any given moment. One of us has headphones on just to drown him out. It's not a pleasant atmosphere at all. And there is nothing my supervisor can really do since there is a hiring freeze. Unfortunately, it will probably take the death of someone in order for him to be let go and it should not have to come down to that.

Weight Loss Update

Down 0.4 for a grand total of 23 pounds.

Did people forget how to drive when coming off of vacations? Yesterday, my rainy commute took me an hour and ten minutes when it normally takes me 25 minutes. I passed several accidents. At least it wasn't snow...I could only imagine what the situation would have been like.

Well, my team has ended their season thanks to Chad Pennington's interceptions and the offense just playing like crap. I can't really complain though considering where Miami Dolphins were a year ago. They had ended their season 1-15. This season they ended up 11-5 for the regular season, AFC East Champs, and the only team from the AFC East to make it into the playoffs. So overall, a much better NFL season for me.

Happy New Year

Well, I'm thankful that 2008 is behind us. Of course, I'm anxious about what 2009 will bring me. I haven't really thought of resolutions to do but more some goals I'd like to accomplish at some point this year. I don't say resolutions because the things that I want to work on, I've already been doing them. I want to continue losing the weight. I have about another 20 pounds or so that I want to lose. So with that, means bumping up the exercise and watching what I'm eating. I want to read a lot more of my books. I had a "horrible" reading year compared to years in the past. A big reason for that is that I don't have a subway commute anymore. If you're interested in what I've been reading, please check out my book blog. I have several craft projects that I've started and even one that my friend Tricia had asked me to do for her that I want to finish. I'll be posting pictures of their statuses soon. I want to get more of my credit cards paid off, something that I can do with a couple this year. And overall, I just want to be happy. Much happier than last year-no unemployment, no medical procedures for me or my kids, no emergency room visits, no having to borrow money from friends and family.
