I Approve of You!

HAHAHA!  No, really.  Tonight is "Approve Pending Transactions" for my company - it's just part of the job that I have to do.  I wait to make sure that the work got done, and I basically approve the work so that the person who did the job can get paid.  I always think that this part is so funny because it's like I'm saying "I approve of you".    It's really not that at all - it's that I have made sure that the contractor completed the job that they committed to for our client.  These nights are fabulous because I get to stay up and find ways to pass the time.  I get to look around and figure out what I would do instead of sleeping... all the way until Midnight.   So, thank goodness for Blobs, Facebook, and plenty of YouTube videos about how to say the Spanish Alphabet!

Just as a thought though, I often find myself wondering why is it that we care so much about what others think.  Especially when we are online expressing ourselves?  Half the time I do not know who is responding.  I don't know what that person is doing in their daily life of the background that they come from.  However, it seems so important that I reach them - or that we connect in some way.  Now, this particular entry was meant to be short and sweet.  I did not necessarily want to get into all of the ho-hum psychological semantics about human behaviors on this night.  But, I hope that all of my readers know that regardless, I approve of you. :)  

Have a happy night and keep reading and growing!

2015 - Ahhh, blobbing at its best

So many things have happened since the announcement of the misses - for example - almost 5 months past.  Can you even believe it?  I know that I can't.  We were so darn busy around here that I just put the blob down and didn't even think twice about picking it back up again.  Quite frankly, it might happen again this semester too!  Who really knows what the future will hold?  Well, I don't - but I can always speculate.  So, here a a few updates for those of you that care to take a peek.

1)  It is with great pleasure that I announce that I have applied and I was accepted to finally graduate from SLCC this spring.  
(I stole it from the internet- BUT - I am pretty sure that this is what it will look like)

Ahh, what does it mean!?!?  Well, it definitely means that If I take another 7 year break due to my job, I won't have to take the math placement exam again (And pay for it - AGAIN).  This semester I am taking statistics and Spanish - and don't be surprised if I start posting in Spanish too. (Just kidding).  So long as these classes go well, which I am confident that they will, then I will be in the clear to graduate and I will transfer back up to the University of Utah where I will finish the remainder of those courses and finally be done!  As of right now, everything is going according to plan. (Mwahahahahaaa!)

2) I reactivated the Blubber Blob and started a new diet journey with Take Shape for Life / Medifast / and Lori (You can click on her name to go to her website - she is only the BEST COACH and BEST FRIEND EVER!)  The link to the Blubber Blob is at the top of this site here.  Anyway,  I lost 10 pounds the first week alone.  I am on week 3, but my goal is to find my jawline again.  (Man, I seriously hate having a double chin...).  
(This is not me - my hair is red - but it's a good representation of my serious lack of a jawline)

Anyway - the TSFL Medifast plan has been working very well for me - and if you are one of my awesome readers and have been struggling looking for something that will work and you don't have to plan out, this is seriously the plan for you.  Give it a try - really - go to the site, and give it a try.  GO.  Go now!

3) D-Man is now in the. (Wipes the tiny tear from eye) Oh, they just grow up so darn fast.  At this rate he will either be graduating from High School with Kadoodle or College before me!  WTG D-man!  WTG!

4) This was posted on Facebook:
And then - just before the new year hit - She arrived!
Meet Gamora!  (Yes - the name from Guardians of the Galaxy)

Isn't she pretty?  We are still getting used to her, and she to us, but after three weeks around the house she is starting to take over.  (Just as we suspected.... right?)

Those really were the most major things that happened over the last 5 months.  Oh sure, there was lost of other stuff that happened too - but I figure that I would stick with the most major of the stuff for now.  I hope that everyone had a safe and happy new year and that you all check out my Medifast Journey on the blubber blob - because so far, it truly has been fabulous.  Until next time!
