37.40 – Crashing back to reality

Yes, reality.  Where I don’t really have the time or energy or interest in writing every day.  I’m not going to beat myself up over it though.  Life goes on after missing a day or two of not writing.

Even still, after these days, there hasn’t been all that much to talk about.  At the end of my rope with one thing or another.

Yeah, so, that’s it.  Maybe tomorrow.

37.32 & 37.33 – Zumba

It’s late, I’m tired.  There you go.

That up there is all I had to say last night when I got home from the Nuggets game. I was too tired to even push publish.  But now, I’ve had some sleep and I’m ready to give an update.

It started snowing yesterday in the wee hours of the morning.  That’s never a good sign.  I started thinking that maybe we should take public transport to this event, but we opted to drive instead.  By the time we got downtown at about 4, the roads were already getting not so nice.

Regardless, I trudged through the snow to find the right building where rehearsal was being held.  There was a LOT of Zumba love going on in that room!  Everyone was super friendly (which basically falls right in line with Colorado in general) and it didn’t even matter that I didn’t know anyone there.  By the end of the night, I had made a few new friends.

We rehearsed for a while, talked about what would happen, smiled, laughed, joked, took pictures, and just basically had a great time.  My photographer forgot to turn on the flash so some of the pics came out blurry, but no biggie.  I’ll share the clear one and the one where I don’t quite have my eyes open, lol.

My face looks very, uh, full, lol.  Ah well.  Here’s the halftime show:

Truly a blast and I look forward to doing it again next year.  It’s also inspired me to, oh, maybe work on putting a class together so I can teach once in a while.  I mean, that’s why I did this in the first place and someone always needs a sub.

The roads were NOT GOOD on the way home.  But, driving in the snow with a rear-wheel drive vehicle never is good.  We made it, though, all in one piece, even though that piece was pretty frazzled.

Now that the Zumba excitement is over and done, it’s time to move on to the next thing I’m looking forward to:


Oh, mama, I’m in fear for my life from the long arm of the law……..

37.31 – bulletpoints


  • breakfast – cheated and went to sonic.  it’s only once per week so it isn’t awful.
  • grocery shopping – the great thing about doing the grocery shopping at target is that it’s a super target so it can be one-stop shopping.  sometimes, it’s shopping for something that i wasn’t shopping for.  that’s what happened today.  i got some socks on purpose and then accidentally bought a tv stand for the basement hideaway.  the price really just couldn’t have been beat and i love the way it looks, so win all around.  only four more items until the hideaway is complete.
  • cleaning – it gets super dusty here for some reason.  it was the day to do all of the dusting (swiffer dusters are pretty cool) and vacuuming and bathroom cleaning.  ugh, but i do love a clean room.
  • see ya christmas – a week into january is plenty enough time for me to have had the tree up.  down it came.  everything back in its place.  it looks a little sparse but i like it better that way.
  • chimichangas! – i just like saying the word.  and eating mini ones for lunch.
  • hideaway work – put together the tv stand, moved the couch, hid some stuff behind it.  got the table in place.  visualized where the last four items are going.  it’s going to be a perfect patron margarita on the rocks no salt.

i’m just too tired to do anything else for today.  i still need to tighten up the mop up top.  there’s straightening to do in my office.  would’ve liked to have run through the dance once more but my hip is starting to act stupid so i don’t want to aggravate it and have it be really sore tomorrow.

has the lack of capitalization bothered you in this post?  it won’t become a habit, don’t worry.  it took longer to write this having to backspace a lot to, well, create typos of sorts.

i gotta go polish my boogie shoes.  more to report on the morrow.

37.30 – Just over the limit

So, it’s quarter after 12 but I’m throwing this shorty so I don’t feel bad.

Holiday party was super.  Hubby’s co-workers are totally awesome people!  I look forward to seeing some of them again.

Also, let me introduce Lucy Moo-sy.  Here she is:

My new cow
Look at her; isn't she cute?

Don’t you just love her?  She’s awesomely squishy. You may see photos of her in random places from here on out. Sorry.

Okay, it’s late.  See you tomorrow at some time.

Good morning!

37.29 – Hectosity

Yes, hectosity.  Sounds like: heck-toss-it-ee.  Definition: a state of your day being so hectic that at 5pm you are curious where the heck the day went.

Today. Was.  Hectosity.

Before I get to that, though, I wanted to show you this website.  Fly.

I’ve been at my job for just under two months now and the best way I can describe it is information overload.  There are about ten systems upon which I have had crash courses.  It’s challenging though, and I like that.  In the last week or so, we’ve been chatting about certain systems that we want to put in place, one of which I get to lead.  Today was something along the lines of……BOMBARDMENT!  But oh how sweet it was.

I actually needed a few more hours in the work day today and would have gladly worked them.  Most of the day was spent in meetings.  First, a ‘heads up’ type meeting that we’re going to get crushed on Monday.  Next, chatting with a vendor and a co-worker about what will henceforth be known as “TheProject”.  I foresee a lot of meetings with a lot of people to get this the way everyone wants it.  TheProject is officially now my baby.  When I came back from lunch, there was a huge (and when I say huge, I mean more than 4’x5′) relational diagram draped over my monitor, keyboard, and chair.  TheProject is going to be so much fun.  Last, a web demo/conference with the earlier vendor, the vendor doing the demo, a couple co-workers, and the director of our department.  I was all kinds of sitting quietly and listening until I had a good question.  Boom!  I unleashed that bad boy and got kudos from the earlier vendor and the director.  That meeting was full of win.

I’m actually enjoying my job.  Who’da thunk it?

Also, whilst my goal is to blog daily, I just don’t think I’m going to make it tomorrow.  We have a social event directly after work that will run past midnight.  I suppose that one day won’t be the end of the world.

Well now, I think I’ve talked your ear off enough for tonight.  Have a great Friday!  Go to happy hour or something but always have a designated driver.  Be safe!  See you on Saturday.
