The "S" Word.


Yep, that's a bad word around here. Only because I'm not ready for it. And we had crappy sporadic weather this summer.

And we're getting the dreaded S-word on Monday. Snow Flurries. Yeah, I know, I should be grateful they're only flurries, but SNOW in any form is not welcome. Not in early October.

'Nuff said.

I don't remember falling asleep last night. Hubby and I watched two shows, had popcorn and Coke zeros, and around 10:45, I could barely keep my eyes open. I went up to bed, he puttered on the computer for a few minutes. He says when he came up, he said something to me, and I didn't answer. I was GONE.

I think it's because I've started regular workouts this week. As opposed to sporadic workouts. I do 30 min of cardio six days a week (off on Sunday) and weight training 3 times a week. We don't have our personal trainer any more, but I have all the workouts she emailed me over the years, so I'm doing it right. I'm going to implement Yoga next week, in the mornings. I always feel great when I do yoga, and I miss it when I don't.

Why the big rush to get in shape? Because this is the time of year I could potentially pack on the pounds. Halloween alone could sabotage any diet. And I already have some weight to lose, so I don't need any more.

*sigh* That's what I get for having four babies and not exercising regularly. Well, in a few years I'll be in my forties and the weight will be harder to get off. So, I'm doing something about it now. What's funny is, I feel fine. I have energy, I am extremely busy and I run around without any problems. (Then I look in the mirror and see my full moon face and think "yikes!")
I was relatively thin all my life (until I had the aforementioned babies) and since I'm not genetically blessed with a naturally fast metabolism (like two of my longtime friends I'm supremely jealous of--you know who you are!) I have to WORK at it.

So, work I will. Because I don't want to eat the Holidays. :-)

ANYWAYIGOTONATANGENT, I am not looking forward to snow. I guess I'd better put in the driveway stakes, just in case. And move the snowblowers to the front of the garage, instead of the lawn mower. Freaky. Time to batten down the hatches and get ready for winter! Just like all the little squirrels I've seen lately.

Although I wish they'd stop digging and hiding acorns in my lawn...

The weather folk are saying we're going to have a mild winter -- but the cats grew coats that make them look twice their normal size and the squirrels around here are the size of small dogs with the extra fluff.

I'm trusting the animals, not the weather predictors.

Okay, that is SCARY.

You know you're tired when you read a friend's blog and ANYWAYIGOTONATANGENT looked at first like "Anyway, I got an agent." Then "Anyway, I got on at Agent." I swear, I read that three times thinking "What's Agent? Is that a book company?"

Duh. It's 6 p.m. Is it too early for PJs and bed?

Aimee, I think I just died laughing! Thanks so much!!!
