Good day!

After a relaxing and productive weekend, it is again, Monday.  As usual, I have high hopes for the week!  My running club begins on Saturday, so I am going to try to prepare for it for the next five evenings. 

The diet is back on track after a weekend dip.  At least, I think it is.  For breakfast I did the usual – turkey meat and quiche cup.  However, the lunch for today is a chicken salad on romaine.  That’s fine and dandy, but she made it with sour cream instead of mayo.  Now, I know that mayo should be limited, but I can’t find any info on the sour cream…  But I figure I will just eat it and  keep on track for the rest of the day and hope for the best.

I spoke with the future brother in law in law and yes, I know I wrote that twice.  It’s the brother in law of my fiance.  I know, it makes no difference in his relationship to me, but it’s fun to say!  So, I spoke with him while he and his family were in ‘Nawlins’ for Mardi Gras (lucky bas.. guy), and he told me that he has a disk that I can borrow that may be able to fix my computer.  I am hoping to High Heaven that it works.  I feel like I’m wasting my new 20″ flat screen on games that are not World of Warcraft.

I actually found my edition of The Temple of Elemental Evil and installed that yesterday to get a fix on some sort of gaming.  It wasn’t the same.  And it took me forever to remember just how to play it!  I still don’t have everything down… 

But at least I have my laptop and my phone.  It’s nice to be able to twitter and post things to Facebook while waiting in the bank line.  I swear, if I had an iPhone, it would never be torn from my hands!

OH! On a final note, I believe that the fiance and I have finally set a date to be wed!  Provided the church is available, and the Priest that we want to officiate the ceremony is willing, August 22nd will be the goal date! 

I almost had him for a Halloween wedding, which would have been cool because we could celebrate my sister’s birthday, have the wedding, go on our honeymoon, and celebrate MY birthday – all in the same week!  But then again, it’s enough stress with just the wedding…  YEAY!!!

 

Wednesdays – Not My Favorite February 18, 2009

I guess it’s just because it’s the middle of the week and nothing ever really happens.  Everyone is just waiting for the weekend and Wednesday just happens to be in the middle… 

So..  last night I was on my Twitter account (via the laptop – the PC is still dead to me.  However, it may rise again after some butt whoopin’ tonight from a friend of mine!) and I follow Felicia Day – part of a great web series called The Guild.  For the WoW addicts out there, this is such a great show.  If you haven’t seen it – SEE IT!  You can find it on the Zune and Xbox 360 Marketplaces or online. 

Anyway, I saw a tweet from Felicia Day about a season two cast party being broadcast on Ustream.  I was really very excited until I learned that it was going to be broadcasting on Pacific time.  ::insert frown here::  I’m definitely a night person, but during the week, I’m usually in bed by about 10 or 10:30 and asleep soon after.  (yes, I guess you could call me a wuss..)  So, as cool as it should have been to see the cast of the Guild live (well..  virtually live), I punked out and fell asleep. 

Stupid early mornings.

However, last night I also went to an informational meeting for a local running club that will be starting at the end of the month.  The woman who spoke had to have been pretty young, but she was really excited about the club and what it does.  Basically, the beginner program helps people to start training for a marathon (or a half marathon, 10K, 5K, whatever!) by doing the walk/run thing in the beginning and gradually working up to 3 or 4 miles non stop!  Then, you can merge into the training program for the marathon.  It’s kind of neat, though I have never really been a runner.  I’m going to try it and get myself all psyched up for it…  I hope!

Oh, and today, I brought in a chicken and eggplant casserole – everyone is loving it!  I am so excited!  And here I thought cooking wasn’t in my genes…  I guess I was wrong.  Yeay!
