I'm still here

Wow, I didn't realize how lax I had become with this blog. My apologies. Work is keeping me increasingly busy and I love it. Every day I am learning something new, and I am getting to impress my teammates and colleagues with my skill and knowledge.

I have happy family news too.My cousin who married in March of this year, gave our family great news- she and her husband are expecting! Baby Johnson is due the week of Christmas. Mom and I think they need an "M" name to keep with the family theme. Now comes the fun part for me, a new project knit with love and from the heart. The one thing I can tell you, it will most definitely not be holiday colored.

Time to start searching patterns :D

Hope all is well with you.

Please, oh please, oh please!

I am trying oh so very hard to not make myself crazed. I am waiting for a contact from another area at work... When will it come? Will it come? Will it finally be my turn?

A college friend lost his daughter today.

Baby M stayed just 15 short days here on earth. Such a short time, and I know her mommy and daddy will love and miss her for the rest of their lives.

God gained a teeny tiny angel today, and I hope that she can watch over her family from above and know they will always love her.

small things

I am thankful for many many things, but this morning, it is something small.

I am thankful for the ability to work from home. I don't have to worry about driving into the office on bad weather days - I know what the roads in my town are like, but the capitol city is always a wild card. Right after getting off the highway, there is a brief steep section that you have to get up/over (that is mostly an overpass at that).

I will work cozy at home today, thank you.

random thoughts

So, wow- its officially Fall today- time to openly appreciate all things Pumpkin can offer  ;P

In all seriousness, I can finally open my pumpkin coffee :)

Instead of pulling out longer sleeves and starting to put away summer clothes, I am thinking of what to pack (other than 2 bathing suits, crops, and dresses). I can't wait for this getaway, and its almost here!

This afternoon's plans include grocery shopping, knitting and dodging raindrops.

On another note, UConn plays Michigan tonight. While I love my alma meter, we do not stand a chance in winning, but it would be nice if they gave a fighting chance. Is this how Yale felt?

Things afoot

Time is flying and things are afoot- less than a month until vacation and busy, busy times at work. Will be sure to keep to my gym days to keep me on track.

A few shots taken last month (how is it September already??)

Something New - owww

So I joined the fitness center at work and after having a fitness assessment, had a workout designed by one of their trainers. I went yesterday morning at 7 to learn the circuit. Included- squats with 20 lb dumbbell, reverse lunges, 45 lb chest press, 60 lb lat pull downs, another machine and then a couple of exercises with a stability ball. I was sore when I left and walked to work- no match for this morning.



Do you know how painful it is to get up/sit down/stairs when your thigh muscles are tight/sore/screaming?

May go tomorrow just for a little cardio. Don't know if I can do a squat or reverse lunge yet. Can do the rest of the circuit though.

Scored at Old Navy- yoga capris, 2 sports bras and a black T to supplement my current supply of workout clothes- I am looking forward to seeing if I can fit in a workout tomorrow!
