Just Thursday

Just Thursday again!
Outside my window.. 80 degrees and sunny! Beautiful 🙂 Hope this weather holds up over the weekend!
Today I feel.. tired because I stayed up until 2 am last night watching Survivor and Glee.
I am thinking.. about whether Boston Rob will finally win this time. His tribe is just so clueless…
I am thankful.. that I finally found dill pickles here in Mexico. God bless you, Walmart.
Tomorrow I am going.. to do laundry at my in-laws house. Exciting, right?
I am wearing.. my work uniform.
I wish.. that I didn’t have to work today. It feels like it should be the weekend already!
My schedule this week includes.. gym today, packing tonight then watching Amazing Race with Jorge, sending 2 of the dogs to the groomers tomorrow, then doing laundry tomorrow night.
I need to start.. dieting a little better. I’ve been going to the gym and eating a little better, but it’s very slow going. Still, in 1 and a half months my measurements have gone down!
Chest and back: 2.5 cm
Waist: 0.5 cm
Abs: 0 cm
Hips: 3 cm
Thigh: 3 cm
Arms: 3 cm
I am reading.. The Ugly American by Eugene Burdick and William Lederer. A coworker found a 1960s edition of the book, IN SPANISH. Time to step up my vocabulary 🙂 Here’s a picture of the book… the fact that it’s old makes me feel smarter.
I am working on.. translations for work.
Yesterday I.. went to the gym, watched Dr. Phil, went to Walmart and Sams Club to buy our dispensa, then watched Survivor and Glee.
I am hoping.. to have a productive day at work today. I really need it!
I bet you didn’t know.. Ok, remember the post from last week about finances? Well, we had YET ANOTHER unexpected expense this month. Turns out now that I’m married I have to upgrade my visa to an FM2 status… which costs $280. Luckily this is something I knew I had to pay for in July… but I wasn’t expecting to pay it in March! Again, we’re lucky to have the money, but GRRRRR this is frustrating!
This weekend.. we’re taking a bunch of our friends to Chabihau to celebrate our civil wedding! A whole weekend of the beach, hammocks, the lagoon, the breeze and tons of fresh seafood. Can’t wait!



MishMash

I don’t have anything specific to blog about today, but there are some random things going on, so let’s get you guys caught up 🙂

First of all, I always get asked how married life is going. It’s great! Jorge cleans, we’re both learning to cook a bit (even though he’s happy eating Nesquik cereal every night), we watch a lot of Law and Order because it’s one of the few shows we can agree on, we rarely argue, when we DO argue it never lasts more than 5 minutes (living with someone is a big motivation to apologize quickly haha)… life is good! My only complaint is that Jorge has now gotten hooked on a new video game called Plants vs. Zombies. Plays this thing for 3 – 5 hours a day. Seriously.

The crate training with Konan is going well. She’ll usually go outside on her own now. We can go out at night with friends and leave her outside the crate and she won’t go inside. Last week, we left her outside the crate all day when we weren’t home. The first day was perfect. The second day… not so much. So back into the crate she went the next day. Still… we’re progressing!!

Easy Off Bam! should be kept far, far away from all clothing items. I lost a shirt yesterday 🙁

Calorie counting isn’t going as well this time as it did last time. I haven’t gone over my limit yet, which is good, but most days it’s not as low as it should be. I’m learning, though! Most important lesson: Don’t drink your calories! There are 250 calories in 500 ml of Coke… that’s the same as a light lunch!!

This is an exciting week in my favorite shows! Big Bang Theory is having a HILARIOUS 4th season, Glee did a Rocky Horror episode last night, New Zealand’s Next Top Model has its finale this week (go Danielle!), the Project Runway finale is tomorrow, and Survivor… well, Survivor is always interesting. Don’t tell me anything! I can’t watch any of it until this weekend!

 

Just Thursday

It’s just Thursday! If you want to join in, go to Murdock’s Mama’s website to link up…

Abby from Murdock’s Mama is on vacation right now in the Riviera Maya! She’s soaking up the rays on the beach right at this moment, just one hour from where I sit in my cold, gray office. Blah.

Outside my window.. sunny, yet overcast… kinda weird, kinda cool. I really want hurricane season to end so all the massive clouds go away!

The time is.. 9:17 am
Today I feel.. halfway between wanting to kick butt at work and go home to sleep some more.
I am thinking.. that I always have the hardest time with this question. I think it’s because most of my thinking before 11 am is pretty robotic.
At the moment, I am thankful.. for great, cool weather because I can sleep with the AC off and the window wide open!
I am going.. to eat something yummy for lunch today! (fish tacos? empanadas? soup and salad? We’ll have to wait and see!)
I am wearing.. my work uniform BLAAAAH
I wish.. hurricane season would stop already! We already have another possible tropical depression on the way, due to arrive at the Yucatan Peninsula on Monday. I’m really hoping for a non-rainy weekend!
I am reading.. They Came to Baghdad by Agatha Christie
I am working on.. getting our finances together so we can save more each month.
I am hoping.. that my cold goes away soon. I’m in the coughing stage still… no fun!
I am hearing.. the hum of the AC at work.
I bet you didn’t know.. that Jorge went on a date with another woman last night!!! Ok, he went to see the new Exorcist movie with my best friend and former bridesmaid, Viri. (Her fiance Juan and I refused to go see it. We don’t do well with horror movies.) Jorge later told me it sucked.
One of my favorite.. shows is Survivor. I just got hooked on it earlier this year. I haven’t seen last night’s episode yet, so no spoilers please!
Weekend Plans..

None yet! 🙂
