It Can Only Get Better...

I've decided a 4-day weekend is not a good idea. Let's take a look at what I accomplished in the past 96 hours.

The Good:
-Put away ALL Christmas decorations
-Completed stage 1 of "Spring Cleaning 2009" (there are approx. 27 stages)
-Spent a lovely Friday with my parents
-Brought in the New Year at Kait and Steve's home
-Exercised twice

The Bad:
-Slept. A LOT. Even Thumbs decided I was a sloth.
-Cried 7 times in 6 hours (see The Biggest Loser below)

The Ugly:
-Ate fried pickles, fried green beans, and bbq wings for dinner Saturday night. Decided that wasn't enough gluttony so I then enjoyed a huge piece of chocolate cake.
-Watched 6+ hours (in a row) of The Biggest Loser. Had a fleeting moment of wishing I was 300+ lbs so I could then lose half my body weight and bust through a paper wall while millions cheered/cried for me.
-Almost died the first time I exercised. I did the whole hands on knees, breathing like I was in labor while whimpering to my trainer (Michael), "Just go. Just GO. LEEEEAVE me!" (He did not.)
-Got addicted to Bejeweled on my iPhone. I will never make fun of Michael and his gaming addiction ever, ever again.

(My newest resolution: Buy self tanner. USE self tanner. For the past several years I've been 172% against tanning beds and will give you a list of reasons why you should be too, but it doesn't mean I need to give Casper some competition. YEESH.)

The end. Keep in mind, my mom used to take tour groups to New York City and they saw the ENTIRE CITY in the same amount of time it took me to do the above tasks. 2009 is looking a bit bleak. :) I do have some good news to report (for me, not really you), but I think I'm going to wait a few weeks before I make the announcement. Call it self-preservation.

Thanks...Old Navy and they are probably like $5 now!

We sell a self-tanner called Tan Towels at work and they are awesome. It's like a baby wipe that you just wipe all over and it looks very natural, isn't orange, and doesn't streak. We sell them like crazy.

Too funny about the baby-making. One of my friends did it and the ears were HUGE. They came out of nowhere.

Now I'm emailing you about something else.
