Random thoughts of an upbeat mind

Remember me?

I know it’s been a long time.

Every night I come home and think about a few things to post and the energy leaves me.  I’m pretty sure that my lack of energy is related to my lack of exercise. 😦

Let’s see what’s new …

I have been in the market for a new job and managed to secure one.  I’m a little on the fence about it as it might be crazy busy but at this moment, I’m ready to learn new things and be challenged.  I start on the 20th.  It will be a longer work day for me.  I will be starting at 8:30 instead of 9.  Not a big difference to some but I am so not a morning person.

To get myself mentally prepared starting next week I am going to get in the habit of doing some prep at night.  I will be packing my lunch and breakfast at night so I can make my mornings easier.  I will also be slowly setting my alarm earlier and actually getting out of bed.  Maybe even dare I say it I might try a morning workout.  Shocking I know but I need to get moving again.  I feel so much better when I do.

Tomorrow is the Lion King.  I can’t believe how fast time has passed.  My kids still don’t know that we are going.  They know we need to look good tomorrow and they are not exactly sold on going blindly.  I hope they enjoy it.  I can’t imagine that they wouldn’t.  It might be a little rushed as I need to get home eat/bathe/dress in less than half an hour.  I really hope they are ready when I get home.

I got my first electricity bill.  It was not pretty.  I was not as diligent as I could have been about saving electricity but I was not expecting a bill that was close to $125 for 1 month.  My neighbour’s first bill was double that.  She is not a happy camper.  My second bill came and it’s $95.  I am afraid for this hot summer to come. 😦

On the health front, I have stopped counting calories.  I’ve been maintaining my weight.  I’ve not hit my target weight yet but that’s not surprising considering my lack of exercise.  But hey I’m not gaining so that’s good!! 🙂

I still have to do my April recap and figure out some easy goals for May. 😉

Something happened with blogger recently and it stopped delivering emails to my inbox.  What an interesting way to reduce the number of blogs I read.  I am very behind and have been slowly catching up.  I am contemplating deleting the old posts and starting fresh.  We’ll see what happens.

That’s all for now.  I’m tired and want to try to get into my bed early.

  1. Only a few new things 😉 Enjoy your new job. There is definitely a learning curve with starting a new job. Don’t take on too much! Be kind to yourself during the process. I started a new job in August and am trying to remind myself of the same things.

  2. Hi Sunny, it’s great to hear from you. Bets wishes with the new job! Will you get to rest up on the long weekend? I’m so excited for you about getting to see The Lion King – I looove it!

  3. Congrats on the new job! I hope the sleep adjustment process is going well.

    How was Lion King? Will look forward to the review – I think it would be magic!
