Day 35 – Happy Labor Day!

Today was a great day!  I got to spend most of it with my best friend and my favorite 6 year old.  We did makeovers and she gave me a glitter tattoo.  What better way to spend a Labor Day!  

I also got to start my day with working on a computer under Cliff’s tutelage.  I can’t wait to start getting into hardware support so that I can learn how to build my own computers.  I think that would make me feel a lot more comfortable with these beasts.

However, I’ve done pretty horribly on the diet frontier this week.  Hopefully, I’m right and it’s hormones.  I’ll be glad to get back to my routine tomorrow.  Perhaps I’ll get lucky and won’t have a gain and just be stagnant.  

We broke our 5 year plan to my family over the weekend and it went really awesome.  My Mom seemed to be really psyched about the move and her and my Dad are going to try and fly out to meet is in Seattle next year for the second leg of our trip.  

I’m really getting excited…even though it’s five years away, I already can’t wait.  Vacation this year is going to be amazing!  Things are really starting to change!

Day 34 – Home Sweet Home

We had a great time visiting my parents this weekend, but it’s nice to be home. I can’t wait to sleep in my bed tonight! I also can’t wait to exercise tomorrow. Just a few hours of homework and then I’ll have three whole weeks off from school! I can’t wait to start cleaning out this house and boxing and storing everything. 

Hopefully I’ll also have time to start working on my craft room. I would love to get all of that set up before I go back to IKEA in November.

It’s been a work in process for almost a year at this point and I would really like to finish it.

I have so much crap to get rid of…I can’t wait to get started!

Day 33 – All good things must come to an end

It’s been a great trip, but I’m dead tired.  I wish we didn’t have to leave so soon, but I still have homework and a house to clean and start organizing.  I can’t wait to go through everything and get rid of some stuff and purge myself of knick knacks.

But for now I can’t wait to go to sleep.

Today’s tribute is to two women who are completely inseparable and also happen to be two of my all time favorite people.  I’ve had such a great time hanging out with them.
