today was a really good day

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

actually, it's been a really good week.

Today, I exercised, for the SECOND day in a row...I know for many of you this is no big deal but for me it is HUGE. You see, I'm a lazy person by nature so the effort it takes me to get off my butt is exponentially greater than the desire to stay planted firmly ON my butt. Now that I've done it for a couple of days though, I'm feeling good...like I can keep it up. I'm not sure how much I weigh or how much I need to lose (we don't have a scale here and I like it that way!) I don't think it's that much though...I'll know I'm successful when my clothes fit the way they used to. That's all I'm looking for.

And on a related note, I went grocery shopping today and didn't buy any Oreos or Pizza Rolls - again, exercising some supreme willpower, hehe.

I got a phone call today to set up a phone interview with Target next week. I *think* it's a manager position in their distribution center (aka, a warehouse manager...right up my alley since that's EXACTLY what I did when I worked at Gallo) It's not my dream job but after 7 months of looking and nary a bite, I'll take what I can get. We need benefits (and I've heard Target has great ones) and the discount isn't bad either (especially as half the money I spend seems to go there anyway!) Sooooo, wish me luck. If I don't post about the interview going well though, don't ask...I promise I'll let y'all know if it's good news, otherwise, I don't want to talk about it :p

My house is clean...the dishes are done, the carpet is vacuumed, THE TOILETS ARE SCRUBBED PEOPLE. (OK, my scrapping area could use a little work...it's in a state of disarray that I like to call "creative chaos" Unfortunately, nothing creative is being created at the moment.)

I got my copy of Scrapbooks, Etc. Made in Minutes from the friendly FedEx guy.

Both of the boys have Halloween costumes ready and waiting - HELLO, it's not even October. Damn, I'm good.

*I* bought my first Christmas present (don't hate me because I'm organized) AND it was for someone I normally have a REALLY hard time buying for. Another biggie for the procrastinator in me - I usually start shopping, oh, around the second week of December.)

The 2Peas Creating Garden blooms tonight...always a new month highlight!

Yup, things are good...and I have something FUN planned for tomorrow night but I'm not sharing what it is yet...just have to wait for that one (and really, it's not a BIG deal so don't get too excited :p)

Everyone have a GREAT weekend!

    Just thought I'd let you know about a site where you can make over $800 a month in extra income. Go to this site   MAKE MONEY NOW  and put in your zip code..... up will pop several places where you can get paid to secret shop, take surveys, etc.  It's free.  I found several and I live in a small town!

  2. Whohoooo! That does sound like a terrific week!! Good luck w/ the interview!! We don't have a scale in our house, either. It keeps me sane. : ) Cole walked through my scraproom on his way outside this morning and said, "mommy - MESS." Yup, that's just the way it is!

    {(don't hate me because I'm organized)}, lol! this whole post was like reading my brain!
    exercise? oh...you mean walking to the mailbox and back right? I am on the halloween costume, but chrismas shopping? please. every year i think i'll have it done early...until the 23rd rolls around and i'm a maniac making final stops at target because i've simply given up finding the perfect gift, and they'll just have to like what they get, lol!!

    it's always so nice to know that i'm not alone in my lazy/procrastinating ways...

I want to be organized, I want to check out the Creating Garden (had to leave this morning and haven't done so yet) and I want to see BHG MIM....cause I am sure you're awesome stuff is in it, right?! I want a clean house....but it's not....sigh...
    Okay, so I will stop now ;) Another ramble in your comments section....sorry about that!

  6. I am SO with you Erica...procrastination city here. Congrats on getting some stuff done early! I need to take a cue from you!

  7. Man that IS a good week! So great about the job interview and why on EARTH aren't you getting benefits from BHG? :)
    I wish my week went that good. I think I'll make that my goal for next week -- to have it be as good as your THIS week.

    Nice job on the exercising... did you make it through the weekend? No scale at our house either and I plan to keep it that way. ;)

    Hope the interview with Target goes well. Will be waiting to hear.

    You got your MIM already??? It had better arrive on this side of the state from mr. fedex today!

  10. oooh good luck with the interview...fingers crossed!
    I start exercising tonight too...when you get some motivation, send a little my way, ok?? ;)

  14. Good luck on the interview!! Hope all goes well!! Sounds like it's perfect for you!

    Christmas shopping already?!?! Wow. I'm impressed...and jealous :(

  15. Okay, we can't be friends anymore. You are WAAAYYYYY too organized for me. Halloween costumes are supposed to be bought on the evening of October 30th and Christmas gifts on December 23rd. That's what 24 hour stores are for! You FREAK!!! LOL. No, seriously though, lots of luck with the interview. Hopefully we'll see a post about how it went:)
