Yay, I can see the weekend!!!
Thank you to everyone who sent me hugs - sorry I didn't respond before, but we were literally flat out. I finally got to sleep in this morning (until NINE! Bliss!) and woke in a pool of sunlight and kittens. I could get used to that.
So, here's the updates:School:
Passed Algebra with a 98 for the semester - go me! (I will deny unto my dying day the rumor that I never opened the book when I wasn't in class. I flipped through it when I got it...)
Paralegal - I'm not so sure. I'll find out next Monday. I'm HOPEFUL of a B - but we'll see. My class participation and two of my quizzes may have done me in.Weight:
I had no access to a scale yesterday, but I weighed in today!Starting weight:
291 lbs.Current weight:
I went up .2 lbs. Considering my eating habits for the past week (I was LIVING on junk food. And takeout. And cola.) I am very, very pleased with this. I didn't pack a lunch today (bad me) but I am drinking seltzer and iced tea and hot tea, not cola. And I will be home for a good meal for dinner. And I went for a walk today on lunch! It was GORGEOUS out - I was listening to the John Tesh Radio Show Wednesday night (go ahead, laugh, but it's got a TON of good information for your life, and lots of 80s soft rock), and apparently one of the best things for your blood pressure, especially in stressful situations, is a walk in the woods. And the NH woods are full of color now. If it's as sunny tomorrow, I might bring my camera with me.Writing:
Tonight, I'll be working on the edits for Snow
. This weekend, after I send those off to the lovely domynoe
, I'll pull out the edits for Seasons
. And I still have to sign up at NaNo - I'm signing up and I'll be posting word counts, but it's going to be for Belladonna Dreams
. My goal on that is to have it ready to go out the beginning of 2009.Work:
I made it through the three days of hell this week. I'm on the downward slope now. One month from tomorrow, I will start 401k training. I can make this. I can.
And I registered to vote today. Go me! Also indulged in a little retail therapy and bought two pairs of new shoes. I'm cleaning out my shoe closet tonight and donating most of them to Goodwill - I'm past my "omg they're so CUTE!" phase and into my "I need shoes that look good and have some support as well" phase.
