Thankful thursday. Really

Exhaustion has come to town. I wish I could say that it was exhaustion from a new exercise program or from keeping my house spotless or from anything worthwhile and constructive. I’m just tired without reason. I’m tired to the point of not being able to think straight, stay focused, be productive at anything… and it’s getting on my nerves. I went to bed stupid early last night but saw every hour on the clock (or on the tv as I don’t have a clock in my room). I’m tired to the point of being headachey, nauseated and cranky. This is not good.

Boo-boo’s work in the ATL is finishing up quicker than he thought and he will not likely be in town this weekend for our sweets party at Café Intermezzo… which is fine because the budget hasn’t stretched as far as I hoped this pay period and we don’t need to splurge any more on Austin’s sweet sixteen. When Ryan heads up i-85 north toward PA he’ll try to work it so that we can meet near the interstate and have a bite to eat or something. If not, it’s ok. I miss him but like I told him last night, it’s not “the last biscuit”… which is my way of saying that good things come back again… we can’t always have everything we want when we want it.

The shift key on my laptop has broken off. My café intermezzo money will likely go to fix that. Ugh.

I’m having a little bit of carpel tunnel in my right wrist. Overuse. Probably due to my Farmville activities.

I’ve started looking for a dress for Cody’s wedding. He wants me to incorporate teal into it… it’s an outdoor wedding in late May in Georgia… which means it will need to be adaptable to different weather situations. I’ve had my stylish sister-out-law Candice and my best gay friend, Purple Michael helping with my wardrobe. I’m also trying to plan for a shower… more on that later.

There is still snow on the ground here and it’s beautiful, bright, white against the perfect blue sky. I drove by a place yesterday where there were daffodils peeking through the snow… it was in a place where I couldn’t stop and take a picture or I would have, trust me! We’re expecting warm temps this weekend and I have to get out and walk.

Austin has been in butt-head mode this week… completely uncooperative. Go figure. We have the opportunity to move to a rental place that my friend Alisa owns. It’s about ten miles further from work but about $150 cheaper each month with lots and lots of land around it. Austin went into complete meltdown when I suggested it and I relented and told Alisa we couldn’t take it… but he’s been pulling the disappearing act this week which makes me think maybe I SHOULD get him out of town and into the wilderness. I love where we live now… and I don’t want to spend an additional half hour a day driving… and I don’t know how in the world we could manage moving… but I am so tired of struggling financially… I’m really looking at anything that will make life easier. I’m going to sit him down this weekend and have a heart to heart about our reality. Alisa is putting an ad in the paper this week to get the house rented so it may not even be available any more.

Still no movement on the scale. Stuck at a 4 pound loss. I didn’t even do measurements this week. I’m at about 75% compliance with healthy eating. I’m eating a lot better than I did three months ago and not as good as I want/need to. I may not win the Biggest Loser but I’m at least on the right track.

I’m ridiculously excited about tonight’s episode of The Office. Jim and Pam’s baby is coming! I love this show! Also excited about Survivor tonight. I’m trying to care about American Idol but I’m just not there. Love Ellen. That’s about it for me.

Craving Mexican today. That is NOT good budget wise or diet wise.

Daylight savings time begins in ten days! Yay for that!

Is it too early to start the weekend countdown for this week? Even with the snow interruption, it has seemed like such a long, long week.

Gotta run now... love and hugs and happy thoughts...
