sounds good....gotta feeling I'm going to be online most of the weekend. I work a grand total of 4 whole hours tomorrow


I tried to set up a local U2 fan gathering but no one was into it. Everyone gave me "sorry busy that day" answers and no one gave an alternative suggestions. I guess that means they aren't interested. I actually gave a few different options and few people that answered weren't too enthused about it. I guess that means I don't have to be FB "friends" with them anymore since they clearly don't want to be real life friends.

damn...I'm in a fine mood today aren't I

Thankfully we ran out of time and did not finish the night with more Turkish get ups. Since the instructor is also my personal trainer she knows me quite well and has no problem giving me more than I think I can handle and she kicked my ass good yesterday. I slowly walked around a lake today and that's about all I can do. I'm going to run and do weights tomorrow and then take a weight class on Sunday. I'm super happy that I've been able to get back into this. Also, not working 6 days a week in catering kitchens has been good for my waistline because I finally feel like I've lost a little weight in the past few days.
Dude. I gained weight. WTMF?? Monday, I did heavy lifting. Tuesday I did only what could be described as vikram boxing as it was over 90 degrees. And the last two weeks, I've been the only one to show. So it's been brutal. Wednesday I had my training session. 80 push ups and dips off this metal sled thing I had to push around with weight. Some deep core and squat/lunge work with the exercise ropes. Then Thursday and today, I ran 3 miles. My trainer wanted to do another body comp thinking that I may be gaining muscle mass. But we did it like 3 weeks ago. I doubt that much changed. I'm hoping it is water retention. Because it's disheartening to work this hard to get fatter somehow. That's just effed up.

ETA my phone sent it before I was done. Grrr Droid.

uh...yeah... you're definitely going way harder than I am I only get 1 maybe 2 days of weight training then the rest is running/walking. Some of the things you speak of frighten me. I will say now that I'm no longer under trainer supervision on a weekly basis (well outside of boot camp) I'm definitely going to take this opportunity to check out what other trainers (in free classes) are doing. So maybe I'll find something else that will kick my ass as hard as boot camp. I am a little discouraged that after all of the weight training I've done on my back and shoulders that I'm still using a bar when I do push ups. I had hope to be on the ground at this point. But my trainer has a different opinion on that and says I'm right where she would expect me to be, which is about halfway to the ground from my original spot.

My scale has only changed by 5 pounds in 6 months but I know I've lost a ton of weight by the way my clothes fit. Almost every single t shirt I have is gigantic now. But for some reason this week I just feel way lighter in the mid section than I have in a long time.

Ugh, my cell phone is dying, and I need a new one. Shopping for cell phones is almost as stressful as car shopping.

Everyone takes lunch at the same time, and it's usually noisy and fun, but today it was silent. I think we were all having nutty days, so it was nice to sit in the peace and quiet for a while.

Lol I was outta there pretty quickly. I bet I'll get some wonky text later tonight, but for now I'm rid of it!
Good!


I'm SO exited to do a whole lot of nothing tonight. I'm too lazy and tired to make dinner, so I'm just gonna have a bagel or something at some point. I'm just content to sit on my couch and do absolutely nothing.

Glad you're enjoying your job so much! My work was crazy this week, too. But in a good way. Very busy. Made the week go fast. Next week doesn't look that bad (at this point, but that can change rapidly ) so hopefully I can catch up before my week off.

Sarah and I are talking about the Colorado shooting, and then there was a bad one in Toronto earlier this week, at a neighbourhood block party...and then after that, there's been a random shooting per day. So fucked up. For the first time ever, I'm a little reluctant to go there.

Thanks, me too! Next week is going to be insane, because we have a huge weekend event that starts on Friday. So hopefully the week after that will be a little quieter, since we'll have a few more weeks until our next big event.

There have been a lot of awful shootings lately. I can understand your hesitance.

That sounds like a fun busy! With me, the woman in IT who normally does our draws was out for vacation this week, and her backup was the IT manager who is extremely busy all the time. Rather than wait for him to do draws for us, I took it upon myself to learn to do them, and I had so many this week, and with the learning curve (it's far more complex and multi-stepped than I imagined!), it put me behind with my work. Not that my manager minds, she's very understanding and probably grateful that I volunteered to learn. But the clients whose work I set aside to do it might be a bit less understanding. It was worth it though, the IT woman who usually does it has been there forever, and has a lot of holiday time, so now, we don't have to wait. And I became much faster at it as the week went on. Plus I kind of enjoyed doing it.

As i was saying to Sarah, contrarian hipsters might say "crime stats show that the world is safer now!" but that doesn't matter. It all seems so random and senseless now, and weapons now do so much more damage, and the world has just gone fucking insane, and it sucks. I don't even care if that makes me sound like an old person demanding that those darn kids get off my lawn. Bleh.

It's awful what happened in Colorado. I was reading one of the victim's Twitter feeds and she was tweeting back and forth with a friend. They were joking around and in all caps she said that the movie was starting in 20 minutes. It was chilling to read, knowing what was going to happen.

I am so horrified by the Colorado events, that I hardly know what to say--and that is very odd for me. What is wrong with people?? Has the entire world gone mad??? It is scary shite that every time you say "Bye!" to someone, it may be the last time you see them.

Hey, when was that filmed? I have never been able to find out. I've looked through all sorts of sites and everything, and can't find a damn thing about it.

Hey everyone.

I'm having a green apple Smirnoff ice right now. It's pretty yummy, doesn't even feel like I'm drinking.


Besides being wiped out tired from getting home at 4 AM after Batman this morning, (and a little sunburn from waiting in line too!) I've pretty much steered clear of the internet today because it's just too depressing. I had such a nice time with my kids at the movie. Afterwards at 3:30 AM there were so many people outside, being interviewed by news crews, celebrating, and even huge lines of people already waiting for the 7 AM show! It was great, until of course we heard the news, and then it was just so sad.
I feel so bad for everyone and their families. Just so pointless and horrible.

I'm glad you and your daughters had fun.









How was the movie? *has been looking forward to this movie for 4 years*
