Now that it’s over

So with grad school done, what have I been doing? Obviously not blogging. LOL Well, I’ve been playing Frontierville, and wishing I could remember who sent me that invite in Facebook. Oh, by the way, I have 2 Facebook accounts so of course I am playing that game on both. That sums up my unproductiveness.

I have done a LOT of housework to include things I wasn’t doing even when I wasn’t in school. There is a story behind that, but I will save it for a separate blog post. I’ve also taken to cooking somewhat. That’s part of the same story as the housework. I fixed the push mower after it hadn’t run in like 9 months. (Weed eater is still pending.)

I started scripture memorization. I’ll also give the why behind that in a separate post. I’ve finished 1 Corinthians 13, and am working on the sermon on the mount. 3 chapters, none of which are short. That’s going to take a while.

And, I’ve started working out. This time, I am not just working toward one specific goal. I am going for a short-term goal (get under 200lbs by Labor day), mid-term goal (get below “obese” range around end of year), and long-term goal of around 155 (around next June). Last week was the first week, and it was awful. I hurt my knee (the good one, no less) last Thursday, and that curtailed my cardio somewhat for a couple of days. Naturally Saturday I was full on cranky to the point of verbal diarrhea. Hubby told me that I had both cut how much I was taking in, plus increasing activity so of course I was going to be tired and cranky. Well, turns out it was something entirely different, but I will spare you men the details, though I am sure you will figure it out just from that. If not, I expect some entertaining comments.

Now, all that said, I probably won’t even try to blog again for another couple of weeks. Next week is vacation bible school, and since I am a station leader (music), I actually have quite a bit of practice to do. The week after next I will be on vacation at my mom’s, where I can only get dial up.

Oh, and due to multiple dog escapes (Darci and a neighbor’s dog), Mittens has apparently decided to move. We haven’t seen her in a couple of weeks. *sigh* Black kitty aka Shadow aka basement cat is still kind of showing up once or twice a week. He was here yesterday morning and I petted him on his nasty head and told him to tell Mittens to come home because we miss her. I figure she is hanging out where ever he hangs out.

    I’m low on blog posts too. Good think I have the daily Crap posts though, jut to keep momentum going.

    I can’t motivate myself to do any sort of exercise, to you’re one up on me.

    Have a good vacation, and get away from that FB Game.

    The scripture memorization might come easier if you tried it while exercising, a two-fer, if you will.

    Then alternate with exercise while blogging. Perhaps this will give you time to do more things.

      Actually, I’ve generally been doing the scripture memorization during lunch break, and I’ve been doing my daily (read-thru, not study) bible reading while I am riding the stationary bike in the mornings. Hopefully, if I can keep that up after vacation, I’ll have time in the evenings to at least do some blogging. :hope:

    Dang, girl. you have been busy! But on the bright side, at least with school over you have time to do all those things.
