I was feeling a bit choked up reading all your sweet comments from yesterdays post. I feel like Linda Richmond....a little verklempt.

Thank you so much for your support as always. Special thanks to Tammy who is a fellow Georgian and unemployed. You're totally right. I hope that me bitching about my situation doesn't offend you or anyone else that doesn't have a job at all right now. I know it could be a lot worse and I need to just keep plugging along. Isn't that what we all do every day anyway? I'm not giving up though. I'm working harder than ever to get myself out there and working on some side projects that may eventually amount to something.

Anyway, it's Friday and it's going to be a fun weekend. It was SUPPOSED to be an upstairs of the house cleaning weekend but I doubt there will be enough time to do the deep cleaning I want to do. My husband desperately wants me to go watch his soccer team play at a pub at 10 on Saturday morning and after all he's supported me this week, I owe it to him! His team isn't one of the big Scottish teams so it's rare they are on TV. He can't watch it on the computer like he normally can so we will be in a bar at 10am. I could probably use a Bloody Mary anyway. It's really like breakfast...especially if it has olives and celery...right? :) After that I will clean and finish my sisters Halloween costume. I swear!

Sunday I'm helping out my girls at Pit Stop 3 on the 3-Day. Here is a pic of the 5 foot tall gingerbread person cutout I did. Walkers can stick their heads in and have a picture taken. I also did the logo for this years theme which is Candyland. I did some funny signs based on the characters in the game to put around as well.

It's supposed to rain on them today and I'm praying it will stay away. Sore feet are bad...wet sore feet are way worse. The rest of the weekend is supposed to be nice If everyone could keep them all in your thoughts this weekend, they could really use it. They will probably have all the food and drink handing out covered so my plan is to head out down the route and walk with single walkers who need a little boost to the pit stop. When I worked the crew a couple years ago I did that and people were so appreciative. I wore a pedometer that day and ended up walking 7 miles. Is it sad that I'm excited to put on all my crazy pink accessories? It's not every day you get to wear a pink sequin cowboy hat!

Today I'm working on a gym schedule. I'm trying to put together a cardio and weight routine that I can follow at the gym during lunch without being able to afford the trainer. I'm checking out some things online and I'm sure I have some knowledge left from when I worked with a trainer before. I'm going to start out with free weights and body weight exercises. Y'all know how I love my squats!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Thanks again for being awesome.


  1. Just looking at your Candyland cutout and your ideas for the PitStop 3, prove just how wonderfully talented you are!! Once the advertising biz pics up (very soon, we hope as our daughter is a Assoc. Media Director in Phoenix) people will be coming out of the woodwork wanting to hire you.

  2. I'd like to put in a plug for the book "The New Rules of Lifting for Women". I hate weight training and it's the only thing that kept me at the gym from last October to this past July. Get this book, you won't need a trainer, I promise!

  3. Hi, I'm new to your blog, fellow Georgian too...yeah.

    Tammy and I just joined a gym up here in Cartersville, and I used to have a trainer and when we got in there it all came flooding back. But it really helped that last night we had a free training session and we were shown exactly what to do.

    The 3day sounds great, Tammy and I have been talking about doing a 5k next year, but the 3day sounds good too, and for such a good cause.

  4. Have fun working the 3 day. Your graphic work looks pretty darn good! I imagine there is an amazing positive energy about during the 3 Day event. Your rain today is coming to us for the weekend. Indoor working out will be on the docket.

    Good luck with working out a gym schedule.

  5. Just catching up and wanted to say sorry about missing yesterday's post - hope you are feeling much better today (sounds like you are).

    Love that you used the word "verklempt", lol!

    Also, thank you so much for the support and encouragement through the Blister Period, I remember it well, lol again!

  6. That candyland cutout it tooo cute! It sounds like you have a lot going on.

    I wish I lived in Georgia! My best friend is there as is my sister.

    Have a good one.

  7. Hey girl!!! I wasn't offended at all....just trying to genuinely offer you some help. I know it's tough to work for a bad boss...just wanted to remind you that it's even tougher to work for no boss at all! lol

    May I see a pic of you in the pink sequined cowboy hat? lol Hope you had a fantastic weekend...great job on the Candyland cutout! Too cute!! :)
