Just Get Me to Tomorrow

morning reality: xxx lbs
Valentine's day goal: xxx lbs

As I suspected after that giant whoosh last week, I am maintaining. Which, considering the lousy food I ate this weekend, I'm thrilled not to have gained.

I went to the gym last night and hated the crowd. Had to actually wait for a treadmill. It always quiets down by March when most people give up their new efforts to exercise. Well, we know that won't be me.

$21 in the (day after) Valentine's Day flowers for me jar. Yay.

Still no word on my favorite baseball player Jason Varitek staying with the Red Sox. I'm afraid. Never in my realm of possibilities did I think of him playing for another team. And never did I imagine the Red Sox without him behind the plate. If it is going to happen, at least give me a year's notice! Some good baseball news, at least Jim Rice got into the Hall of Fame finally.

We're heading into a deep freeze here, with single digits temps. I absolutely love it. I love the chill. I even love the way the nose hairs stick together. And I love how your own breath exhaled into your scarf makes you feel warmer. Yes, I know, I'm not right in the head. But I'm OK with it.

I just wish it would snow some more. It is a short season and I want as much as possible. I would love to go snow tubing, but I don't have anyone to go with me. Hmm, should I ask James (wolf boy, as some of you have come to call him). Party boy is more like it. I have Friday off but the temps are supposed to be so low it will make outdoor activities unpleasant. Bummer!

Ugh! And just the idea of watching a game and him not being.... oh I can't even finish that sentence - I feel sick. Ugh!

I am planning a tubing trip with bff and the kidlettes in mid Feb. Can't wait. We had such the blast last year, I know it'll be more fun this time cause they were a little scared when we got started. Fear of the unknown and all. But there shouldn't be any of that this time around - so it'll be off to the races. I love to race them - heehee.
It's a cold week here this week. No snow or anything fun like that, just cold enough to make your fingers feel like they're falling off. Great...
As for the weigh in yesterday. I am back up 2 pounds. So at a total of 8 now. *sigh*
I'm back on the wagon though. So hopefully I can make you proud again.

Just a Lovable Party Girl
Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
