I was working on a project when a new email appeared in my inbox. It was from Bone. You haven't been blogging five times a week lately. Is everything OK? To answer his question, yes everything is ok. Bone, Thank you for the concern. It touches my heart that you are concerned. Well, either that or you are bored at work and need something to read.
Last week I did not have much to say to the Blogger World. Mostly, because nothing was going on in my life. Well, I wouldn't say "nothing" just nothing blog worthy. Last week was the week after vacation. I hate the week after vacation. It's always depressing. You have to go back to work, start working out again, eating normal, and deal with real world issues. No fun! But I feel that I made the transition pretty well. With all that said, I guess a few blog worthy things did take place last week.
Blog worthy event #1
My abode is going through a huge transformation. Think Extreme Home Makeover meets TLC's Trading Spaces. So far, I've been pleased with all the results. I started out in the living room. It was painted Sweet Corn Yellow. Then I moved to the kitchen and painted the ceiling red, to match the rest of my painted kitchen. Today, my home office was painted Ocean Blue. I like the ocean so much I felt I needed a room to match. You can do that when you are single.
The changes have been super easy on me. I pick up the phone to call my painter ladies, they come paint, and I go home at lunch to pay them. Easy. I highly recommend this form of paintING opposed to doing it yourself.
Blog worthy event #2
Friday night, my friend OK Dude came over for dinner. I cooked street tacos. This was a made up recipe. It was inspired by a street vendor in Portland. Of course, I did not eat at a street cart in Portland, because my mom refused. It had something to do with fixing her food with the same hand that took the money. Whatever. (Insert eye roll *here*) Anyway, I saw a picture on the internet, and imagined what I could put in the tacos to make them good. Thank heavens this made up recipe turned out good.
Blog worthy event #3
Last week was week #3 for Healthy Holiday Meltdown at Jazzercise. Leave it to Jazzercise to have a boot camp/ diet camp for the upcoming holiday season. Their motto is "lose the weight before you gain it this holiday" or something like that. So far, I cannot see any results. I've been attending two strength training classes a week; and this is on top of my normal 6 aerobic classes a week. Also, I'm not sore after my two strength training sessions. A few years ago, when I did Booty Boot Camp, every muscle hurt. Not this time. I'm going to be pissed if in December I'm not toned.
Blog worth event #4
Saturday morning I woke up with a scratchy throat and snot lodged in the back of my throat. Awesome. Sunday, I woke up barely able to talk. Today, my voice sounds like Peter Brady. You know, the episode where he's trying to sing and his voice keeps cracking? Yup, that's me. I really should be at home in bed.
I suppose that was all the blog worthy events from last week. Tune in next week when I discuss purchasing Billy Joel tickets.
