Boot Camp Update

Am I crazy?? My THIRD Boot Camp starts today! I am kinda worried because it was rained out all last week! So I am a week out of shape... which is my own fault because I didnt drag my lazy butt to the gym at all... but this boot camp I am going to try to add in a day of cardio a week - I have said this now for a while and it has yet to happen... so we will see if I actually do it or not. Really I have good reason - I have something to do everyday after work so its more of lack of time rather than lack of motivation!! but I will see if I can be a little better time management this boot camp - third time is a charm! wish me luck!!!

Back to Glasses...

I went to the eye doctor today… bad news… well honestly, when have I gone to the eye doctor and received good news??

My eye disease has been having tiny flare ups and healing on its own. My eye is damaged from all the flare-ups that I don’t feel them if they are small – my eye is pretty much numb to them. Each time I get a flare up, it leaves scaring on my eye. So basically in a period of 6 months I went from seeing 20/40 in my right eye to 20/60. and for all of you who don’t go to the eye doctor 1000 times a year, that means TWO lines! That’s a big drop in a matter of six months.

So what can we do? Nothing. I have to start wearing glasses again for distance, and reading glasses while I am at work. I could just go for one pair of bifocals, but at 24 years old, I refuse to wear bifocals!!

I am pretty bummed right now… the doc said that after my surgery my right eye went from being a 23-year-old eye to an 80 year old eye… great! How am I going to see when I am 80?!?
Well on the positive side - I will pick out some super cute frames :)

Muggle Monday's

Sorry its been a while since I have created a Muggle Monday!
I hope all you muggles can all forgive me!!!!

MuggleNet never lets me down… they reported there was a HPB teaser trailer at the beginning of The Dark Knight shown in the IMAX – it was described as:

A black screen with Dumbledore saying "Once again I must ask you to do the impossible, Harry." After that, the title is displayed as well as the release date

Can you believe it is only 122 days until the release of this movie??!?! I am freaking out!!
Here is another picture from the movie –
Looks like Harry and Slughorn in the professor’s office
Interesting news…
Today marks ONE YEAR from the well anticipated release of the very last installment to the Harry Potter Novels – The Deathly Hallows. 11 MILLION copies were sold in the first 24 HOURS!!

Exciting News!!

Do you remember the TT post I made about something happening for me that I have wanted for YEARS and how I would hope something great would happen for one of my friends?? Well they BOTH came true!! And now I can tell you about them!!!
The exciting that that happend for me
I have wanted to work at my sister, Stephanie's, company for YEARS now... only they could never get it approved for sisters to work together... well about 2 weeks after I started at my new company, Stephanie emailed me telling me it was approved and wondered if I was still interested... without second guessing I quickly updated my resume and sent it to her. The following week I had an interview, and the week after that I had my offer! Today I just finished my first week at the company I have been wanting to work at for years and I couldn't be happier about it! This is also why I didnt get to enjoy my beautiful office for very long and why I had a Farewell Lunch from my company... guess I should have blogged about it a little earlier!
A long time ago I posted a WW about how all my friends left me... well now three of the four are all reunited!!! Val moved to Austin, but I now get to work with Ariana and Brooke as well as my sister! That is just an added bonus!! I am so excited about this job!
The Exciting thing that happened for Jennifer!
On the same TT post I talked about something happening for one of my friends - It was Jennifer. She recently interviewed and got an offer with a great company and she is super excited! I know she will like it because it was the company that I just recently left! I am sad that we wont get a chance to work together again... but I am happy for her that she has a job so close to home and away from the terrible company she is at right now!!
Great things come to those who wait!!
PS - I finally feel like I am back in the interactive world of blogging! I was blocked at my old job, but now I can sign in and comment on all my friends blogs again- Thank goodness!!! So sorry to all my blogging friends that I have not been able to comment on - I've been keeping up with them, but I just wasnt able to comment :(

Singing Bicycle Man

When I took Vito out to potty the other night, I started hearing this someone singing (I know, what’s up with me hearing people singing all the time?!?!)… I see this really cut guy riding a bicycle down my street, holding a take out box in his hard, singing to himself “I’m gonna smoke a bowl of acid, smoke a bowl of acid!” I start pulling Vito in because he likes to attack anything with wheels… the guy get a little closer, still singing his tune, he sees me and says “Hey Laaaady! I’m gonna smoke a bowl of acid, smoke a bowl of acid…” then Vito starts barking… so he adds it into his catchy little song… “and the dog goes ‘ruff ruff’ and I go smoke a bowl of acid, smoke a bowl of acid…” I usually would have been a little freaked out, but this guy was just way too happy to be scary… it was freaking hilarious! You meet some interesting people living in the big city! Haha
