I've been a bit AWOL lately. Not to say that I haven't been thinking about posting, just that I haven't really had the urge to come here. And life has been a bit busy as well so there's that to use as an excuse. Here are some of the things going on in my world...
I've lost about 10 pounds on this diet in the past four weeks. No really, ten pounds. I lost about 8 in the first two weeks alone. I've found the water thing is really helping out. And surprisingly enough, the no caffeine is actually fine. I miss my tea, but the decaffeinated stuff fills the bill quite nicely. I've also grown to like the taste of soy milk on my cereal. And also flax seed oil makes a nice dressing. And hemp hearts fill you up. Nicely.
It is really effing cold out there. Not that I want to complain, nor do I want it to seem like we're the only ones in the cold snap...but the list of schools closed in Michigan yesterday went on for an hour. I don't know why they didn't just say "the following two schools are NOT closed today". My car is not liking this. The noise coming from under the hood when I started it was not pleasant. And it drives funny in the cold. Don't really understand that.
I am really trying to avoid the illness thing like you would not believe. My coworker had the stomach flu at her house and I was walking around with my lysol wipes for about two days. The verdict is still out as to whether or not she will actually catch it. We'll see.
We watched an Inconvenient Truth on the weekend. Go and see this movie. And if you've seen it, tell a friend. This movie was seriously scary. I also went to see The Queen with my coworker and we both loved it. Also saw Little Miss Sunshine, while I agree the ending was pretty cool, the movie was a little slow. I'm looking forward to seeing Half Nelson and The Departed when they come out next week on DVD.
No really, that's all that's going on in my little life. It's absolutely mind numbingly boring. Being a grown up sucks sometimes!
