Monday Ramblings

I'm so tired today! It was one of those weird drives to work where I felt like I was going to nod off. I just kept drinking my coffee but still feel like I'm in a haze. I thought some blog writing and reading would ease me into the week.

I did okay this weekend. Not great but not horrible either. I didn't drink too much but there was an incident with a chocolate croissant and some ice cream. Luckily the ice cream wasn't much and it was the Edy's low-fat variety. Any over-eating was purely out of boredom.

I came to a huge standstill on my paint scraping when I realized that so many of the clapboards are going to need to be replaced that we might as well get someone to replace them all. That left me really bummed and without a project for the weekend. I tried to just sit around and relax but that's something I have a seriously hard time doing. At one point my husband found me sitting on the deck reading Real Simple and said he was happy to see me doing nothing. I laughed and told him I was reading an article titled "10 ways to do nothing". At least I was doing something while doing nothing ;)

Tomorrow I'm traveling to Marco Island for work and unfortunately it's a packed schedule and it's all work. I hope to at least get 5 minutes to put my toes in the sand or jump in a pool. We're staying at a gorgeous beach resort so it's a shame I won't have more time to enjoy it. I'm bringing my workout clothes in hopes of getting some time to get some exercise. It's going to be a challenge!

In other news, I've applied for some more jobs. Fingers crossed everyone...mama needs some new siding!

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I will be back on Thursday!


  1. I'm crossing my fingers AND TOES on the jobs you applied for!

    now, WAKE UP LADY!!!

  2. I've never had trouble doing nothing. I guess I'm a do-nothing natural.

  3. I'm cracking up over here at the idea of you reading how to "do nothing" - I never have a problem doing that!

    Have fun on your work trip - hope you do get some time on the beach, because after all, why else would they have something there if they didn't want you to enjoy it?

    Thanks for the well-wishes for my surgery!

  4. Hope you get squeeze in some well-deserved relaxing time in on your trip!

  5. I hope the job comes through for you. Crossing all fingers for you.

  6. Sending good luck juju your way.

  7. Crossing all loose digits.

    Travel safely.

    My word verification is "stressup"

  8. Ohh good luck with all of this.

    I just lost 50 pounds after a year of hard work and I am struggling!

    Any support is appreciated. and again good luck to you! You look gorgeous.

  9. Sending "new job" vibes! Hope you havea safe and fun trip Tina!

  10. I have a hard time doing nothing as well! Reading a book is about as "nothing" as I can get. Recently I have gotten into heading to the park with a book and the dog and a blanket. Blissful and feels like I'm sneaking something!

  11. So many people seem to be struggling to lose weight . . . I just thought I should share my new favorite weight-loss system - Isagenix. My family (parents & siblings) found this after they moved away. At first I hesitated trying it . . . even after they ALL lost weight. But finally my mother convinced me, and starting last month, I began the system. I can't believe I have already lost almost 20 pounds! I was just shy of 200 lbs, which was the heaviest I have ever been, and now . . . 182.4 as of yesterday morning! And its only been 7 weeks. And my husband has lost even more than me! Two months ago I thought this was impossible. I have pain in my hip and neck that really limit my exercise, and I work full time, which makes it hard to find the time to constantly buy and prepare healthy meals. But Isagenix is fast, easy, and very healthy! I spend less on isagenix meals then what I was spending before, and the meals are super fast to prepare. The website is . If you sign up as an associate you get to buy at wholesale prices, which is a lot cheaper! No obligation to sell it, but you can earn $ signing other people up if you just want to. Any questions, just ask me!
