So Much Going On Right Now!

I'm back from Vacation! For those of you out there who don't know me, I went to Georgia this past week to see my cousin, Amy. I miss her so. I am so glad that her and I are so close. I love my relationship with her and wouldn't dream of giving it the point that I am trying like h-e-l-l to convince her to move up to NH :-D I highly doubt it will ever happen, she hates the cold...but it still makes for a fun time.

Georgia was fun, but more importantly relaxing. I haven't really had a vacation since August and Bar Harbor, so I was overdue for some time off. Between all the overtime and Toy Bank, I was stretched very thin, and it showed. Things have calmed down a bit more and Thankfully I am trying to get back into the swing of things. In Georgia we went to Atlanta for one day, to the Aquarium and the World of Coca-Cola, both were really cool. The Georgia Aquarium is by far the best one that I have been to and beats the New England Aquarium hands down! We also got to see and spend some time with Kenny and Wendy and their children. It was nice to spend a day with them and get to know Wendy a bit better, since they are now married :-D They have quite a lovely house and life for them in Georgia. I also spent some time with Amy's mom, Barbara and she is a wonderful woman. I can see where Amy gets a lot of her good traits from ;-)

I'm glad to be back home. I missed it here, I missed Ben...the flights home were interesting. Time spent in Airport I have to say is I don't think that I could have a job where I would have to travel a lot. I love to fly, but I just don't think I could do that grind all the time.

Last night Ben and I headed North to his friend Amy's place. Really middle of nowhere...but we had a good time. Game night, and although we did play some games, it was also more of a get to know each other better time as well. I had such a great time. Ben has some amazing friends who care very deeply for him, I just hope that I am meeting their high standards ;-)

While in Georgia, I didn't really focus on eating well and exercising, I just had fun, and I paid for it, I gained a little over 2 pounds. But I am back at it, and plan on hitting Curves 3 times a week and watching what I eat! I've seen pictures of me from my trip and I don't like what I see. I know I can be better and will be better. I even went for a walk today before the rain came.

Things with Ben are going very well. We are actually getting to see more of each other, scary I know! It took the use of Google Calender in order for me to get my life straight and for Ben to be able to know what I am doing. I haven't been able to spend much time on the apartment, we still have a few boxes left over, that need unpacking, but obviously nothing desperately needed. I would like to get my scrapbooking stuff organized and out so I can do that some more. I miss doing that, and I am way behind in my albums.

Anywho, I hope things continue to go well and I can keep up being more organized. I am trying to keep my New Year's Resolutions of some form of exercise at least 3 times a week and also to be more organized. I think that I also mentioned not swearing as much and hanging out with friends more...

To which I can say, that I have hung out with some friends, and we've done the game nights and dinner nights which have been fun and amazing, its nice just to have some chill nights with some good friends and whatnot. The swearing bit...well I think that will always be a work in progress, but I am more mindful of what I am saying...and Ben still catches me every now and again :-D

Baby it's Cold Outside...

So I got in my car this morning and was driving to work. In the Winter my hands get very dry and cracked. So to help cut down on the dryness, I keep hand lotion in my car. Well I went to grab some lotion today, and its frozen...I can't even get a little bit out! Seesh! I had to keep the bottle under my thigh for about 10 minutes before I could use it! Man was it cold's still cold out! Thankfully I replaced my car battery this past summer, so my car really shouldn't have any trouble starting.

I was driving down 101, east of the landing road lights, I was out over the marsh, and I looked out on the ocean and there was this huge snow storm cloud over the water! Ocean Effect Snow! Thankfully it never came ashore. It was so beautiful to look at though!

So in other news, last night I had dinner with a dear friend of mine from grade/high school. It was so good to see Rebecca while she was in town. Some things have changed, but some have stayed the same, and its so nice to see that not everything has changed. I hope its not another 8-9 years before I see her again!

I got on the scale and I am not liking what I see, I had a great low number on Tuesday morning but yesterday and today have not been kind. I chaulk it up to it being a certain time of the month, and I am very uncomfortable, and I'm eating to try and feel comfortable, which isn't working, duh! I have to get out of that mindset! I slipped and fell on some stairs a few days ago so I didn't workout yesterday, but I woke up early this morning and did some Wii Fit, and I intend on going to Curves after work tonight as well.

I have been trying to keep better track of how much I exercise and trying to keep a food journal. It seems to be working more. Just being more aware of what you are doing and what you are eating can help!

Other than that things are going well. :-D
