Why do I live in a state when Monday it was 55 degrees and today it is -2 with the wind chill. This is just ridiculous. I want to head where it is nice. Where I can play golf every day, sit by a pool, go for a walk outside without a coat on and be just comfortable. Instead just to walk out to the mailbox I have to have a winter coat on, a scarf, a hat, and gloves. By the time I am back inside i have my little space heater cranked on high and shivering.


I am still working on all my "new year resolutions" or goals not sure what to call them. I think I would rather call them goals.

Goal #1 was to lose 5-10 lbs each quarter. I have kept the 7 pounds off since December and working on the next 5 that I want to come off. Dieting hasn't been the best but I have just watched my portions big time.

Goal #2 was to get my finances in order. Which I have a budget in place and have been following it very closely. Been able to pay 2 bills off and start a savings. Yeah for me got a lot accomplished in a month. Just think I have 11 more months to go.

Goal #3 was to go back to school in the fall. Which is actually looking like I might be able to go back in the summer semester if they have the classes I needed.

Goal #4 was to become organized more. That has happened, I have now purchased a shredder so I don 't have a bunch of stuff in a pile that was to be shredded. I know where everything is and I can find it within less then a minute if I don't get distracted with doing something else.

Goal #5 to get in better shape and play different sports. Well this one I haven't even started to much. I have definitely been slacking on this one. I did take a boot camp class at the gym and boy has that hurt. It really makes you realize how out of shape you are. I have yoga tomorrow night.

Goal #6 is about blogging. Well I am sure you can tell how that one has went. I will work more on this one.

I hope you enjoyed the update there will be another one next month. Hope everyone is sticking to there goals for the year and have great success with them.

I will post more in the next few days. I have pictures from Saturday to share with everyone.

Heads Up!

I thought I would give everyone a heads up. My blog might be dead for a week or so. This coming up weekend I have company coming to town. My lovely SMITH Family is coming (Bob, Sandy, Ed and his girlfriend) I am not sure who else is coming but I can't wait. I am so excited I was hoping the Woodhouses would be coming but I haven't heard a word on them. We will all be in Fremont Saturday night for Marla's husband (Pete) fundraiser? i don't know if that is the right word to use. Anyways Lynn's daughter Brooke has put together this dinner for her uncle and it is going to be awesome. I am so excited that I get to see people and its not even summertime.

The other reason I will not be checking in is my Grandpa Quick is in the hospital and has been there for a few weeks. My dad has been down there as much as he can but a person can only do so much. He is only a few miles from work so I am going to try and get up there as mush as possible this week to see him.

I hope all is doing well and can't wait for this coming weekend. Talk to you all soon. OH and Steph I sent you an email at hotmail about the cookies.

Catch up

Well i am trying to play catch up! I have been extremely busy with year end and have been beyond exhausted when I get home at night. This year end has been a nightmare for some reason. I don't remember last years that much but I was on some drugs for some pain that I was suffering. So maybe it was a nightmare and I just don't remember or just blocked it out. I have been staying focused on my goals for the year. I have got one bill paid off already so that has made me happy. Now just working on the other ones so I can start a savings. I have lost 6 pounds since Christmas so that makes me happy and I have been able to keep it off for a week now. I just have to get back to the gym since I am about done with year end. Well sorry this is short got to head into the office. Take care all and will play more catch up soon!

P.S. I love you

I read this book and it was a great book. It has been turned into a motion picture but I wanted to read it first. I am not going to do a review on it because it just won't give it the justice. I recommend anyone that has had a death in the family especially a significant other to read this book. It made me laugh, cry, laugh some more and cry some more. A very healing story for the heart. So what are you waiting for go check this book out!

New Year and New Resolutions?

Well 2007 has come and gone now. I look back and don't feel like to much was accomplished. One person told me well if you don't make goals then you won't feel that way. Well what is the point if you don't have goals in life. So I have set my goals a little less this year then in previous years that way I feel like I have accomplished things. So here it goes for my New Resolutions:

1. Each quarter I want to lose 5-10 lbs and keep it off.

2. I want to get my finances figured out better.

3. Fall semester I want to be able to start back to school even if its just one class a semester and I want to be able to pay for it all up front. NO more student loans since I just paid those off in 2007.

4. I would like to become better organized with things at home. I do a very good job now but I want it to be excellent.

5. I want to get into better shape and play more sports. I want to play some golf this year since I haven't got to the last two seasons.

6. Blog more then what I have in the past.

These are what I would like to accomplish I am hoping they are going to happen. We will see when the time comes. I hope everyone had a great Holiday Season and Happy New Years to all!
