This week has just flown by! I'm sitting here at the high school, enjoying everyone just practicing... which means I'm sitting in my office just waiting for kids to need help... all day. Well, until about 2pm. Got here just before 8am. I've been dorking around online but I'm really needing to do a project that is HUGE. Hm... procrastination much?? |
Tim and I had a huge sigh of relief... our tax return came!! It is SO big (thanks to buying a new home) that we're able to do a TON of good stuff: pay all our late payments, pay OFF one ENTIRE credit card (one of the two we have), make our mortgage payment ON TIME, and finally, pay the massive fine Tim had so he could renew his drivers license (it's been over a year, seriously). HUGE relief!! As long as Tim gets a full time job within the next 4-6 weeks, we'll be ok.
Speaking of jobs... There's been 7-9 applications this week alone. Total interviews so far: 3. Tis the biz. We both look daily at new postings and just apply. There's gotta be something that comes out of it. Preferably a COMPANY full time job, but we're not going to be picky if a contract comes our way!!
I am trying to schedule an "intervention" with Marci here at the high school. It's myself, her, and Larson that are the Athletic Trainers. Marci is totally burned out... and it's really effecting the way things are here at the high school. Management of the training room, the kids, everything. Larson and I really like Marci a lot.. but we're tired of her professionally. Does that make sense? We want to bring our concerns to her in a comfortable and loving environment.... I'm finding myself being just CRANKY towards Marci and talking about her to Larson and that is NOT the way I want to be. The sooner we take care of this, the better everything is going to be! Well, I hope so that is.
I've fallen off the running wagon. Completely. ALthough, I did bring my running stuff today. I WILL get on the treadmill!!!!!! I have officially committed to running the Chicago Rock 'n Roll Half Marathon on Aug 2nd. I have numerous people that will be running it and if I don't do it this year... I doubt it'll happen. Turning 30 is the perfect motivation! I just joined a running group from meetup.com in my area and I really hope that helps. At the very least, I'll probably have someone to do my longer runs with (which I count as over 4 miles... doesn't even start until the end of this month). My other motivation for committing is that since running is my body's best weightloss solution, I'll be losing the final number of "baby" pounds along the way (ideally, 15 pounds or 5-6% body fat). JUST in time to become preggo again. ha! Also, I'll begin the next school year in much better shape... which always makes the hectic fall schedule easier. Whoo hoO!!! Now if I could only consistently motivate my butt to get moving!!!!
That's all for now... I'm going to read my book right now. It's called "Nefertiti" by Michelle Moran. WOW!!! It's so freaking good... and a nice long one, too.
