Did I Really Ask That

Right before I left work on December 19th I walked into my boss's office and said "If I get bored is it all right to come back early from vacation?" Right now just the thought of it makes me laugh my butt off.

This would be the first time that I had two straight weeks off from work. 2 weeks! 1 with Lolly, 1 without Lolly while she visited her Dad. I worried without her around I'd get bored. How much laying around and watching tv could I really do? A whole week and then some! I've gotten a few small projects done and ventured out of the house a time or two but for the most part I've relaxed. I didn't think I had it in me. I am quite certain I could do another week. I'd like to blame it on my brother and sister-in-law and the very comfortable pj's they got me for Christmas, that I've lived in lately, but I suspect that I may be a lazy girl trapped in a type A girl. Who knew?!

Time to jump back into my real life. I pick up Lolly today and I need to be on my toes. My listening toes. If you live with a 12 yr old girl you know they talk non-stop. This is always an adjustment for me. I just get use to it being quite and not paying attention. And I have to pay attention. Really. If I don't, I never know what crazy thing I am agreeing too or when I am being tested. She tests me. Seriously, she'll be saying something about Twilight and then say if you're listening say applesauce. And she's sneaky she slides it in there, she doesn't change her pace or take a breath, just slides it right in. I should probably take some aspirins in preparation since I woke with a headache this morning. But I can't wait to get my hands on her and give her a big squeeze!

Vacuum: I finally put it up yesterday. Only after asking Are you done with this? to which he replied No.

Weight Loss: 2 very good days of eating followed by 1 where I feel off the wagon and must of cracked my head open because I ate a whole pint of ice cream!

Finances: Had the shopping bug but stayed out of the stores which means I am still on budget. Speaking of budgets, I am budgeted all the way to May with spreadsheets. If only I could get this geeked out about the weight loss...

Gotta run and get ready. My plan was to get up at 6:30, get ready, go to mass, pick up Lolly, and be super orgainzed preparing for Monday and my entrance back to the work week. Reality is I didn't wake up until 8:53, didn't make the 9:00 mass which means I have to go to the teen mass at 5:30 and don't even get me started on the teen mass...If 6:30 was hard this morning I don't even want to think what 4:30 is going to feel like tomorrow morning.
