Another week almost over

It's funny that how often I post on my blog seems to be directly correlated to how well I'm doing with food and exercise. When I was gung-ho the first couple of weeks back on track, I was posting nearly every day. Now that my enthusiasm has waned, I'm lucky to put up a post twice a week. Tsk, tsk.

Aside from not being as diligent with the healthy eating and exercise this past week or so, my other reason for not posting much is that I don't have much to share. I have a lot going on--work is busy, my CASA case has been busy, I've had quite a few social commitments--but nothing that is interesting to write (or read) about. Plus I have been more "nose to the grindstone" at work of late after getting a talking-to about my billable hours last week.

I don't know if others feel this way, but it seems to me that each day once I finish work, go to the gym (or to my piano lesson or to meet friends), eat dinner, spend a little time with my husband, and walk the dogs, there is not time for much else in my day. I guess this is how most people's lives are? I've even brought work home a few nights this week, and it has sucked up the little bit of "free time" I have in the evenings. . . time that I would usually spend unwinding by reading for pleasure.

The above is one reason that I often think that I don't know how I would ever integrate a child into my life. It certainly feels to me that my life is already about as full as it can get! ;-)

A high school friend of mine ("CP") is coming into town today to stay with us for a week or so while she works for a nursing agency here and looks for a more permanent position. It will be good to see her and catch up. Having a house guest adds just one more thing to my "to do" list, too, though.

I plan to get back on track with the healthier eating Monday and will go to the gym at least one day this weekend with MM. (I will try to make healthier choices over the weekend but know that I will be eating out a lot.)

In addition to entertaining CP, plans for the weekend include taking the dogs to Petsmart tomorrow morning for grooming (it'll be Hunter's first time; hope he does OK), dinner with friends C and her husband and baby tomorrow night, and lunch with KC on Sunday. In between, I need to work for 4-5 hours, clean out my car, and clean out/reorganize my closet, which has gotten to a point where I am having a hard time finding things to wear for work.

Fun, fun, fun. . . . .

MM and I discussed last week the fact that we neglected to plan anything for the three-day weekend we have coming up next week for Independence Day. We talked about various options for weekend getaways and ultimately decided that we didn't feel like going out of town. So we have absolutely nothing planned, which is actually sounding pretty good to me at the moment.
