Is it Spring or did I miss it?

We went from 50 degree weather right into the 90 degree stuff! Of course this is a typical Virginia weather pattern if you life within a 50 mile radius of Washington DC. I think I have complained about this along with everyone else for years.....what can I do about it .....absolutely nothing! LOL The really bad part about this weekend is that I found out that my brand new air conditioning system failed. So I have to get the repair man out to see what is the matter with it...I was miserable yesterday. I can take the cold but I can not take the heat.

I was in FL last week visiting High School friends. We had such a good time and I hated to come back....I love the slower pace there and of course the gorgeous weather..... oh well ....I have a number of years before I can even entertain until then I will just visit!

I wanted to knit yesterday but I was so sweaty that I couldn't hold the needles very long.....yes it did cross my mind to go to an air conditioned place....but guess what....I stayed in my jammies all day and didn't want to get out of them....sad....huh? I think I needed it though!

This week at work is going to be hectic and I am finishing up my class....which I have done horribly in.....and then I am going to relax for the summer.....or at least do some things I want to do. Being a responsible adult just isn't what I thought it would be when I was younger.....LOLOLOLOL...

Happy Belated Easter to Everyone!

This weekend was a blur. I seemed to get things done and yet not all that I needed to. I am leaving on Thursday to meet friends in Florida for a much needed vacation. I am so tired of this cold weather and my allergies have acted up....I feel awful and my knee is really getting worse. But on the positive side I have lost 7 lbs. and still trying. I am back on my healthier eating plan. I joined an at work Weight Watcher program and I feel very good about things. I am watching more what I eat and making those healthier choices. Harder this weekend, but I managed to be pretty good. The good thing about being around my friends this weekend is that they are trying to stick with the program we will shop for goodies instead of eat! We do plan to go to our favorite restaurant and have this wonderful salad we always get when we are I will tell everyone about it once I get back. Happy Belated Easter and I hope everyone had a glorious time.....

I think I am wishing my life away. This week has been rather draining and since it is my short week and a three day weekend for me I am relishing in the fact that in 5 hours I will be headed out the door of work! I think having school two nights a week for me is so mentally and physically draining. I have to drive so far once I get back to the train station. But the end is soon in sight. I feel like my journey has been well worth it and I feel a great accomplishment within my heart. One more accomplishment checked! Yeah!

I want so desperately to knit and sew all of the time! It will come soon one day. I have packages that I promised my swap partners would be out last week and alas...I have been neglectful...or rather just beat. The weather here in VA has flip-flopped so much that I ache from my head down to my toes. "Arthur" settled in and "Sore" came to keep him company....LOL

I am looking forward to my "productive" weekend and hopefully I will be productive...LOL....any encouraging words out there for me? I see pictures being posted in my future! =o)
