Planning a Trip

I am off on Memorial Day, so I think I will take a trip for the long weekend. I don't really know where I am going as of yet, but I have lots of options. I am thinking either Myrtle Beach or Hilton Head for some fun in the sun...or Atlanta or Charlotte for a weekend of shopping. I really don't know what I am in the mood for. But I kind of want to head to Myrtle Beach. I don't know when I will get another chance to go this year...and this is the last season for "The Pavilion", so I really want to go and enjoy it. I love the Movie "Shag, the Movie", so I would love to go see first hand the things in the movie...and maybe even learn to "shag" . Shag is the official dance of South Carolina. I can learn it here in Greenville, just have to find the time to do so. I have asked my sister to go with me, but I don't know if she will, since she is so busy nowadays. So, we will see. I really would hate to go alone.

Things at work are great. I finally had a talk with the guy I was having problems with and I think we've worked them out. Thursday and Friday were great. We had no problems to speak of...and my show on Friday was amazing. I was so proud of it.

This week, I am supposed to get measured at the gym. It's been a month since I hired a trainer. I really hope I see some improvements.

I visited another church last Sunday. Still not really what I am looking for. I didn't go today. I was so tired, all I wanted to do was sleep.

I am having problems with Rooms to Go. I bought my furniture from them...and my sofa has a flaw. So, I asked them to replace it and they told me no. They say they don't care what it looks like. They won't replace it unless it's got a structural problem. So, I would advise that you don't deal with this company when buying furniture. It's not that noticable, but I know it's there...and now I have to live with it.

I know I haven't been updating as much as I used to. I will try to update at least once a week. PLease check in on me from time to time...

Have a good week!

Four Weeks and Counting

Well, we just finished up our fourth week on our new show, and things seem to be going great. Our ratings have doubled since our first week, which I consider a great thing. And it's getting easier to get the show finished. That's a big deal because I am responsible for two hours and once I get comfortable with getting it done, I can start getting more creative. That's when it gets fun!

I am still working out. I just purchased a year's worth of personal training sessions. I feel great and doing this really motivates me to get to the gym the rest of the week. I am only eating out once or twice a week now. That's a big change from every other day or so...I have so much more energy...I'm sleeping better at night...and the stress in my life is very small.

I am still having difficulties with that one guy at work, but as long as it's only one person, I can handle it. He's just so harsh in everything he says. Thinks he knows better than everyone and lets you know it. But it's okay. I am learning to ignore him.

So far, I have tried out two churches, but still haven't found the one I feel like I am supposed to be at. One of my co-workers has invited me to church at her church, so I think I am going to go there Sunday.

And you won't believe this! I may be going on a blind date in a couple of weeks! That same co-worker who's invited me to church says she wants me to meet this guy she knows. She is going to set it all up...we will double with her and her husband. Now, I have only been on one blind date ever. It was a lot of fun, and I actually dated that guy for a few months afterwards. But he turned into a major jerk, so I said good-bye.
So, I think this blind date could be fun...and I could make a friend in the process (or maybe more). I'm all for it.

I went downtown Greenville last Friday night. They have a Jazz concert downtown every Friday during the summer. It was a lot of fun. I went alone, but ran into someone I knew while I was there. Downtown is so beautiful. I wanted to go back tonight, but it's supposed to rain, so I probably won't. But I will definately get back down there.

Well, I hope all of you are well in the blog world. One more thing. I went back to pilates yesterday. It was the first time I had attended the class since I started working out with a trainer. And pilates was so much easier this time. I was able to do almost everything and I am not that sore today. So, I am definately strengthening some muscles.

Looking Good, Feeling Great

Okay, maybe not the looking good part, just yet...but I've been working out for a couple of weeks now and I am feeling great. It's amazing how much energy 30 minutes to an hour in the gym will give you. I had my first personal training session Friday, and it was so great! I learned a lot and really challenged myself. I meet with her again on Thursday. Meanwhile, I am working in the gym with what she showed me.

I went to church Sunday. I don't know if I like the church or not. It's kind of weird. They don't really have a's an elder-led church, so there are four or five guys that actually lead the church instead of one pastor. And I know that God makes apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, and where are they in this church? I am going to visit some others...starting this Sunday.

I am currently reading the new Frank Peretti book called "monster". Yes, it sounds scary, but it really isn't. However, it is hard to put down.

It's supposed to be near 80 degrees this weekend. I'm thinking it's time to lay out by the pool!

My First Problem

Sorry I haven't been updating much lately. I have found that it's hard to always have something to say when everything's peachy. With that said...

I have encountered my first problem since I've been here. And I'm beginning to believe most anchors are hard to get along with. I have an anchor that thinks if things aren't done like he's always done them, then it's wrong. He doesn't like my writing style...he doesn't like the way I stack my show...he just doesn't like anything...or so it seems.

I have tried not to take it personally for the last week or so when it started, but it's eating on my last nerve! So, I guess it's not really a problem yet...Once I talk to him about it...and it continues...then it will be a problem. Now, he is very smart...and I recognize that...but I also know that I am too. So, I am going to have to find time to talk with him and see what happens.

I know I take things at work too personal...but that's all I have right now. I don't have a family of my own...I don't have a social I have work...

Other than that, things are fine...Today, I am taking my dog to the vet for his first appointment since we arrived. I hope she's nice to furniture arrives tomorrow...and I am enjoying everything around me...and I plan to visit a church this Sunday. I had planned to go last week, but daylight savings time messed me up.

SO, things are good. As soon as I get this minor problem cleared up, things will be great.
