Hello From Mrs. Busy

Sorry for the lack of blogging the last few weeks. I started my new job yesterday and I have been really wrapped up in that. To tell you the truth I used to blog while at work at my old job...I know, terrible. Since I cannot do that any more I have been blogging way less.

Speaking of my new job, I am having a good time. The first few days of a new job are kinda boring and awkward. Yesterday I was super bored, by the time I got home I had a huge headach and was reall tired. Today was so much better. I did have more training, but I also had a chance to start work on some stuff and that made me feel way more useful. There are things I am not really liking, and things that I totally looove. Like the fact that the health coverage is wayyyy better and cheaper than my last job, the little incentives they throw in....AND the 24 hr Fitness membership they pay for. YAY.

On to another topic, I did actually do some stuff on my week off. I got a chance to hang out with some of the local (and not so local) OC Nesties, for a book exchange GTG. Everyone brought some books and some grub. There was lots of food and drinks. I was sad because I'm really not supposed to drink anything, but it was fun anyway. I have to give a big thanks to Diame for hosting it. She was a super hostess....THANKS DIANE.

Here are some of the pictures.

I am told that the McD's coffee is to die for.

My Week of Sloth

So far I am totally loving my week off between jobs. I have been getting to hang out with my sister...a lot... and I am getting some much needed chores done.

Yesterday I went w/ my Mom and sister to the Nordstrom's half yearly sale. It was pure heaven. Who knew shopping in the middle of a work day could be so great. I got some really nice stuff. Including; some new work clothes and a kick-ass dress. I just may have to plan a special date night so that I can wear it. I have been having the worst time buying clothes, since I got fat. This dress was just what I needed, it was big in the places I needed to hide, and tight in the ones I wanted to show off *cough*boobs*cough*.

I think I could totally get used to this not working thing. It would be a lot better if the weather would be a bit better and my stomach didn't still bug me.

Speaking of stomach, I guess this would be a good time for an update. So my tummy was feeling much better (lost...see older blog entries) after taking the pills my Dr. gave me. The other day the nurse calls and says that I tested positive for the bacteria that causes ulcers. So I have to stop taking the magic pills that make me feel better and start taking the others. I haven't started taking them yet because the pharmacy says they don't have anything under my name (I'm going to call them in a minute to see what is up). Now I have to go in and get a test to see if I have an ulcer...all in time for my old insurance to cancel. Now I have to be put on MH's and it is costing an arm and a leg.

Hey, at least I still have a few days off.
Hugs all around,

Last Day of Work

So after 7 years at the same company, I have finally decided to move on to another job. It is both scary and a little bitter-sweet. The was my first 'real' job. I really got the chance to meet a bunch of great people. In fact I though one was so great that I married him. I will really miss getting to work with my hubby, but I think it will really be good for us to not see each other every minute of the day.

The best things about my new job; I am only 10 minutes away from my house, more responsibility, better opportunity for pay.....annnnd the week that I have off in-between jobs. Since my last day was on Friday, I have been having a blast just hanging out. Sunday night I hung out with my Mom and spend the night at her place (Dad is out of town). Yesterday my sister and I went to the pool with her kids, at lunch and then went to see Narnia. I still had time to clean up around the house and hang out with my hubby when he got home from work. I would totally get used to not having to work. Although I might get kind bored if I was home all the time. I would need to take up some hobbies, maybe even start working out more...or drinking ;.

I am super excited for my new job to start, hopefully it will be good for me.

New Item...Crossfit

I added a new element to my blog. On the right hand side you will see my daily (or by weekly depending on how much I work out) Crossfit workout. I will try and update it daily. If you find yourself scratching your head at this post, you should checkout my blog entry on Crossfit.

Hopefully Crossfit and eating better help me get ready for swimsuit season and the Bahama's in November.

Happy Tuesday,

100th Post :D

I just have to give a little shout out to myself for my 100th post. I am the type of person who gets all into something and then it starts to fizzle out. So I am really proud of myself for sticking with this blogging things.

Friday before last I got a chance to take some pictures of my cousins for mother's day. Due to feeling so sick I really didn't get a chance to edit and blog about them. So here they are now:

Some of them turned out super dark. I really need to get a good flash. Sorry about the picture over kill.
