Fantastic DAY!

So, it's been a super productive day for me so far!!!

I did my laundry, showed my apartment, folded laundry, went to the bank, ironed my work shirts, put laundry away (you may be laughing at this, but sometimes it just sits in the basket.), vacuumed my car out (MESS!), ate a nice lunch, worked on Ch.3 (didn't realize that was kind of a long chapter... I'm just one lesson away from finishing), AND (get this!) went for a run!!! And, researched banks AND got boxes to pack from the nearby liquor store.

I'm en fuego!!!! WOW! I feel great.

I hope you are all super productive today too! It must be this great 80 degree weather or something.... :)

Making some progress

Okay, so I got off work for tonight, came home and decided to be productive with my "gift of time." I canceled my phone, my gas, and my electric for my current apartment. Also canceled my UHaul, since now I have a wonderful moving company coming. Also talked to my landlord. And my mom... handled a crisis and tried to tell her how LUCKY we are... Really we have nothing to be upset about!

Then, I settled down to do some real work. Finished a lesson plan, and then finished a homework packet for all of Chapter 1 (don't worry, folks, I'm almost finished chapter 3's lesson plans). Doesn't feel a lot better, but I think I realized that this, like training for a marathon, has to be done one little bit at a time.

Tomorrow my goal is to finish Chapter 3, and do the homework set for Chapter 2. AND to get a workout in.

Summer is almost over!

Gah! So, it just dawned on me today. I really only have 3 weeks until I move. There is the end of this week, then next week is my LAST week at HZ , and then I leave for my cruise to Bermuda the very next day (I know... poor me!). Then I get back, have 4 days to pack... GAH!

Major meltdown going on now. Because I just realized just HOW much work I have to do. Ohmygosh. I think it's too much. Yesterday, I was so paralyzed by it, I did nothing. That's just how I roll. Clam up, Ostrich. Denial. You name it.

Deep Breath. So, of course now, I want to go workout. Too late! I had my chance. Blew it.

On a positive note, I have successfully finished rereading Harry Potter #6 so I'm all ready to read #7 when it arrives next week (hopefully before the cruise!!!). I'm just going to have to avoid civilization until I read the whole thing. Can't WAIT!

Back, sorta!

Well, I'm giving this another shot. It might be short lived, but it's funny how many complaints I got when I shut it down. Thanks, guys.

I have started a new blog, just for my hs friends, and that is strictly off limits... but, I guess I need to go into update mode, see if this is still for me. I haven't needed to post, because working out (except for general fitness) and racing was put on the biggest backburner of all time. Mainly because I needed to find a job.

Lots and lots of news, first.

I found a job. It's a wonderful job, and I honestly cannot wait to start it! I am now officially a Chemistry teacher. What a great ring that has, and I can definitely say it's something I'm very proud of.

Racing... Meh. I'm trying to get something (ANYTHING) on that calendar, but a few things have to fall in place first before that happens. I think I've learned that if nothing is on the calendar, nothing will be done! Triathlon might be out for the year, but I'm thinking about a running race... Might be fun to get back to my roots, so to speak!

So, I hope you are all having a great summer, and racing your hearts out for me! I'll try to post every now and then!
