Catching up

Hey, folks! It’s been a bit of a while since I’ve posted, but I’ve been super busy with the new job. I’ve also been getting used to the hours and my different days off. I am absolutely loving the job, though. I have been mostly training for two weeks, but I’ve been designing papers inContinue reading “Catching up”

Four months later …

Hi! Sorry it’s been a while since I’ve posted. I started this blog as a fun project, and it got to the point where forcing myself to post every day wasn’t fun. I was struggling to come up with anything to write about. So, I’m changing things up a bit, and I’ll post when IContinue reading “Four months later …”

Right steps, slow results

Hello, hello, hello. It’s been such a stressful week. It’s been good stress mixed with bad stress, but, unfortunately, there has been more bad stress. A couple people were laid off at work. And guess who gets to do their jobs? The copy desk. And guess who is also getting laid off sometime soon? TheContinue reading “Right steps, slow results”

Look all around, there’s nothing but blue skies

Good afternoon, everyone! I finally got a chance to sleep in today, and it was glorious. And it’s a beautiful, cloudless day today! You may recall that I wrote a post recently about how difficult it is to hire contractors. My mom was trying to get someone here to trim three trees. Well, she finallyContinue reading “Look all around, there’s nothing but blue skies”

Busy, busy, busy!

Howdy, folks! I’m so busy today that I almost forgot to write a post. So, this will be short, as I haven’t eaten yet, and I need to take my meds! First, my shoulder is doing MUCH better today. It’s just sore from being so inflamed yesterday. But I can lift my arm again, whichContinue reading “Busy, busy, busy!”

Feeling a bit wiped out

Hello, hello. I’m a bit late today with my blog post. I had a doctor’s appointment with my primary care physician this morning. I had blood taken, so as soon as I got home, I had to eat and take my meds. I was a little light-headed from getting the blood taken. I used toContinue reading “Feeling a bit wiped out”

Heading to the doctor, and I’m actually excited

Hello! I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow with my primary care physician. And for the first time ever, I am actually looking forward to it. I can’t wait for her to see how much weight I’ve lost. I’m still at 34 pounds, but it’s way less than what I weighed when I saw her inContinue reading “Heading to the doctor, and I’m actually excited”

Discouraged and encouraged, and then encouraged some more

Hello! I am feeling pretty good today. I am bruised from moving the freezer, but I am not really sore. I thought for sure I would be unable to move today after spending a few hours yesterday pushing and pulling a 50-million ton freezer. My knees, though, seem to have suffered the brunt of theContinue reading “Discouraged and encouraged, and then encouraged some more”

One heck of a challenge

Hey, everyone. If you read my post yesterday, you’ll know that I had a project planned for my weekend. Well, I did it! Or should I say, I did it with help from my mom. We have a freezer that we no longer use. It was great when there was a whole family to feed,Continue reading “One heck of a challenge”

Finding the right balance

Howdy, folks. Guess what? I’m stuck on another weight loss plateau. I think that I need to readjust my routine yet again. When I started this in June, I decided to forego lunch and only eat dinner. That worked great for weight loss (and saving money), but apparently it affected my health otherwise. I hadContinue reading “Finding the right balance”
