Staying busy and infomercials

For those of you who know me or read the blog regularly know that I am obsessed with infomercials. I prefer kitchen gadgets but I am very suseptible to the fitness fads. I can't help it...the outlandish results, the way it seems crazy fun, and how it only takes up 4 cubic inches of storage can you beat it! Now I know that the infomercials are meant to make you feel bad...and convince you that the only way to build yourself back up is with the AMAZING results of the AbLounger, Yoga Booty Ballet set, with the free nutritional guide and WATER BOTTLE all for 3 easy payments of $19.95.

Every once in awhile, I take a step back and look at what these infomercials say about our society...I'm upset by it, but I still get roped in..WHAT DOES THIS SAY ABOUT ME!

Since I am no longer employed during the day (yes, I have the ultra glamorous night job as research telemarketer!), I have been trying to keep a high productivity level throughout the day. In my quest to stay busy and productive, I have been trying to come up with schedules of Todos: Tax stuff, laundry, work out, write the book, fix Ken's phone, find that shoe that has been missing for a month. You know all those little things that you put aside when you are merely trying to survive work. While it sounds bad, I am really loving how nice it is to take care of the things that need to be done. I also have been having a great time with Ken...I forgot how nice and fun he is when I was too stressed out by everything (he's a pretty great guy--who knew!!!).

A new hair cut

Well I got this haircut awhile ago, but I thought that I would show it off for those who haven't seen it....
By the way...when the bangs get I cut them or go back and get her to do it?

Lots to Say Lots to Explain

For those of you who have been checking the blog for the past few months in frustration for my lack of blogging (yes, I mean you Jay!), I am back and fully commited to blogging again. I know that last post promised it, but I am commited this time because (DRUMROLL!......)

I left my job at the Alzheimer's Association!!

The reason I haven't blogged in the past few months was because I was so miserable at my job that if I posted regularly...all you would have heard was whining and complaining!

I publicly apologize to those who had to listen to this daily: KW, my parents, Patty, Stephanie...etc.

Thankfully, I am starting my new life without the stabbing and aching pain in my neck that was the Association. *** To clarify: this does not mean the Alzheimer's Association the organization but the Association of my boss and her demented flying-monkey lackies.

I am happy to not go to work dreading the site of people, not to be having nightmares of pounding fists, and to not go home to become a drained and dehydrated couch vegetable.

The bright side of this is that I have lovely fodder for some great posts. Look foward to the character descriptions and amusing antecdotes....For example: a physical description of my boss would read: 5'4'' 280 short brown/grey hair black elastic waist pants and athletic socks---to meet with donors! I know this is superficial but it is just a tidbit of information that will make sense later.
