Advice from childhood

Remember when your mom used to tell you, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all?" Well, your mom might not have told you that, but I'm pretty sure my mom told me many times when I was younger. So, that is why I have not been blogging too much lately. I really don't have anything nice to say. I'm sorry; it is the truth. I have had episodes recently (one as recent as 10 minutes ago), where I ask myself "What else can go wrong?". Ever have those days? I'm sure you do.

For the most part, things are good. I have an amazing family; I enjoyed a great trip to Indiana two weekends ago; I am having fun being the "team mom" for a 4th grade football team my friend coaches; I have good friends and coworkers; I love the house I live in; I have a great job; my mom and I are planning an awesome trip to New York in September; and my birthday is coming up (well, that one is some good/some bad!).

On the other hand there are some things that are not all good. Those are the things that consume me, frustrate me, overwhelm me, and cause me to not have nice things to say. I don't like being fake. I'm one of those people who can act like I like anyone or anything if that is what the situation calls for, but I don't feel like doing that right now. Especially on my own blog. So, if I don't have anything genuinely nice to say, I'm just not going to say anything at all. In the mean time, I'll look for something nice to say, and I appreciate your prayers.

The l-o-n-g-e-s-t week

Oh, my gosh, this week has been SOOOOO long! I had a great weekend last weekend, and I am excited for no plans this coming weekend, but sandwiched in between all of that, I have had the longest week. Thus, I have not updated as promised. I also rotate between three different computers each day, so it seems whenever I sit down to blog, I am not on the computer the pictures are on. So, you'll just have to keep waiting for those.

In a nutshell, my busy week has consisted of (1) work, work, work, and more work; (2) experimenting with meals that I would have never eaten before my surgery; (3) working out; (4) squeezing in pool time; (5) organizing everything for the 4th grade football team I am helping out this season; (6) trying to figure out if I want to paint my bedroom or now; (7) thinking about and planning our New York Trip; (8) planning events for my parent's visit in August; (9) contemplating if I want to throw myself a birthday party this year; (10) looking for and applying for jobs.

Fun times in my world, huh?

I haven't forgotten about you....

I have not forgotten to blog - I just only remember at 1am when I am trying to make myself fall asleep. Many things have been going on in my world.
  • I spent a week in Texas with my family (one of the best weeks - ever!)
  • I've been working on summer projects at work (whoever thinks summer is 'easy' for educators has obviously never done it)
  • I started the Couch-to-5K training program, and signed up for a 5K in August, and am going to sign up for one in September and October as well
  • I had my 6 week check-up with the surgeon
  • I made and iced 50 cookies for a wedding shower at work today
  • I have been spending my 'free' time contemplating the future of my career

See....I've been busy! I'll blog about all of it very soon....very soon. Maybe even tonight. We'll see! Until then, check out my new ticker at the top! Things are progressing very well in the weight department.
