This Week

This week has been very boring for me. I have been so lazy...I didn't go to the gym once!!! And that's terrible, since I am trying so hard to lose some more weight before my 10-year class reunion and Lisa's (my sis) wedding. Not to mention I want to look nice when I go to San Francisco next month. It's just so frustrating, you know? Trying to lose the weight you gained in college. Why does every college student gain weight? The good news is I didn't gain much weight after college...but getting it off is not an easy task! I have lost 15 inches in the last four months...and hopefully that number will go up at my next weigh and measure day. But not likely. I've worked out a total of 2 times in the last 2 weeks. Last week, I had no excuse, but this week I do. For the last several days, I haven't felt very well. But I am feeling much better today and will be meeting with my trainer at 10:30 this morning.

Looks like we're going to have a band for our reunion. An old friend from high school says they're really good...I hope she's right! But it worked out great because now the cost of our reunion is going to be very affordable for everyone!

I've been reading a new book...I'm actually almost done now. I went to Barnes n Noble friday night and bought three books! I love books and the library was closed! There's this author that I absolutely love named Lori Wick...and I've read so many of her books, but I was actually able to find one that I hadn't read and that's what I'm reading now. If you're ever looking for some good, christian fiction, then you should read Lori Wick's books.

Can you believe it's football season! This friday, high school football starts here in the upstate (that's what we call this area of South Carolina). I absolutely love football, so I might have to find a team to root for up here. I can't wait until October when I get to go to Gordo's homecoming game. It's so much fun!

Okay, I need to vent a minute...I cannot stand smart elleck people! This is what happened. Like I said earlier, I am going to San Francisco next month. Now, I have been there several times, since my dad used to live there, so I don't need a guide, per se, of the city. But what I do need is a guide so I can know what events are going on and the guides always have coupons for attractions, which I'm sure I could use. Well, I went online to get a guide and the guides cost $1. I guess that's to cover the cost of shipping. So, I emailed the place and asked to get a guide and told them to tell me how to pay then the dollar, and all she did was paste what was on the website and sent it back to me! The nerve! Anyway, now that I got that out...

Have a good day everybody.

Lots O' Tidbits

It's hard to believe it's been nine months since I left Huntsville. Wow! But at the same time, it seems like such a lifetime ago! You know what's cool? We work through CNN for a lot of stuff, and it's always cool when I'm looking through video and I recognize a reporter's voice...I used a story in my newscast today from Huntsville...a reporter there did the story. It's just neat to me how even though you leave, you're still somewhat connected. Speaking of my job, it is going great! I absolutely love it here. I really hope I can stay here for quite some time. There were some rocky points, but most of those seem to be working themselves out...we'll see what happens in the future, but right now, I couldn't ask for anything better.

Guess what! I am on the committee planning my 10-year class reunion. I never thought I would be on that committee, but now that I am, it's kind of fun! We're having a planning meeting tomorrow. I will have to be on the phone, since I live so far away. I just hope it goes well. When you're from a small town, like I am, people really look forward to reunions. We were all like family in high school, and it's always great to be able to see each other again. And our reunion is going on during homecoming weekend, so we will be able to enjoy homecoming festivities, too. We have set up a blog where folks can go to get information about the reunion. Stop by at .

I am either an idiot or really brave. I bought plane tickets yesterday...the same day the new terror plot was thwarted. I kept asking myself, "Do I really want to do this," but I have been planning this trip for quite some time and had to make the reservations before ticket prices went up. I am going to San Francisco next month. I am so excited! My dad used to live out there. He moved about three years ago, and I haven't been back out there since. I have two friends who live out there, so I am staying with one of them. I am so excited. I do realize how nervous I will be getting on the planes, but I refuse to allow fear to keep me from doing something I really want to do. San Francisco is the most beautiful city! I love it there!

My best friend is about to have a baby. She emailed me yesterday and told me the baby probably would come within the next two weeks...which is earlier than expected. I'm so excited for her! She has a little boy, and now her first little girl will enter the world!

My sister is planning to come see me Labor Day weekend! This will be the first time we've seen each other in a VERY long it's really great. I can't wait to see her! I miss her terribly!
