New Year, New Posts!

Well a Happy 2010 to you all! It’s only the 10th day of a new decade and already I’m breaking resolutions. But then again, how many people aren’t?! I really shouldn’t be beating myself down about it…considering I didn’t really think of anything until a camera was being shoved in my face asking what my resolution was. I had already had something around 6-7 Mike’s Hard Lemonades, countless Jell-O shots, along with some good ‘ol champagne and cheap wine.

Thankfully it’s only 10 days later and I have another 340+ left to turn it all around. In case you were wondering, one of my resolutions was to be nicer. One of my friends started to laugh and said something like he couldn’t imagine me trying to be nicer because he didn’t know how I could be mean. I told him that apparently he has never had the pleasure of working with me. 🙂 What can I say??…I’m a hardass at work…I wish my actual ass was hard (firm) though. Damn! I really need to get back to doing squats and lunges more often…Anywho…that brings me to another resolution…finish up my weight loss. After taking a 6-8 month somewhat hiatus, I’m ready to finish it up and get it done with. So I am going to start looking at races to do this spring/summer and I think I’m going to do the Army 10-miler this fall. It’s a pretty good race in this area and definitely something that I would be able to do.

Yeah…I don’t know how nice I’ve been, but I swear I’ve been trying. I think the fact that my phone at work doesn’t allow incoming external phone calls is making it a lot easier for me to be nice. To spell it out for you all, I can’t get annoying/pushy calls from my vendors about their candidates. Talk about a Christmas miracle! My phone has been out for about 2 weeks now. Sometimes it irritates me, but it’s actually pretty convenient and I can get a lot more work done so that’s nice. 🙂

I don’t know if you’ve been watching the games lately, but the Ravens vs. Patriots was pretty good and so was the Cardinals vs. Packers…that one was really close!! I wonder if my bonus will be bigger this year if the Ravens keep winning? The owner of my company is the owner of the Baltimore Ravens so if his pocket gets bigger, maybe mine will too. Who am I kidding? Probably not….But a girl can wish!

Life has been a little chaotic lately and I’m just trying to figure it all out. Some of the stuff I’d like to write about I can’t since I never know who is and who isn’t reading this. Let’s just say that I really should stay away from the Long Island Iced Teas, since that never seems to lead to good decisions. 🙂 haha…Well, good at the time, but somewhat questionable later…oh well…I’m not really complaining…more or less just a statement. It’s weird how you think you want one thing and then you end up with a few options and then you completely change your mind. Jeez life is confusing…I wish I had a manual sometimes.

In other exciting news, Jess and Lauren are both due in less than 4 months. I’m pretty excited for some new babies to spoil!! Lauren doesn’t know what she is having and I don’t know how she and Matt are doing it. I would be going crazy if I was preggers and didn’t know the sex of the baby. Again, I wish I had more patience. I slightly threatened her that if she didn’t find out the sex, I wasn’t going to buy her baby anything. Heck! Who am I kidding? Of course I’m going to buy her little one tons and tons of stuff 🙂 Same for Jess & Greg’s little Enzo! I’m excited to have a little newphew and another addition to the family.

Okay so last Thursday me, Lauren, her husband Matt and his friend Andrew from work went to the Caps hockey game. We were getting ready to leave and were changing in the bathroom at work when I realized I forgot my belt for my jeans. This isn’t good considering I probably have instant-crack whenever I bend over. I have to wear the low-rise from American Eagle because they are the only ones that are short enough for me. It also didn’t help that I hadn’t “broken” the pants in yet. You know what I’m talking about. When you wash and dry your pants and you haven’t worn them for long enough for them to feel like you can move without hearing a rip down the ass of your pants. Yep, that’s what I was feeling. So I forget that anyone else is in the bathroom besides me and Lauren (for the record there was only 1 other person in another stall) and I start freaking out about how my ass and is hanging out and how I can’t pull my pants up or stretch them out because they may rip. So here I am with the crotch of my pants not up where it should be, doing yoga poses (barefoot!) in the Fannie Mae bathroom. I tried to do a few squats and some lunges and Lauren starts laughing and says not to do too much because they might rip. Thankfully, they didn’t, but I’m now concerned that the unknown person in the bathroom is going to look at me every time I’m walking around the 6th floor wondering how many lunges or tree poses I did that morning to fit my pants. AGAIN! I need to finish up the weight loss goal so I can lay off the pre-work pilates/yoga 🙂 haha…

Alright…although I’ve been laying around all day and shouldn’t be tired, I’m going to try to go to bed to get to some sleep. I find that I can run a lot easier in the morning when I’ve had at least 8 hrs. of sleep. Sorry I missed your call today mom. I’ll try to give you a call this week when I’m not working. I have an on-call both Monday and Tuesday, I’m watching Elle for Nancy on Wednesday, I have some stuff going on Friday and Saturday, so I’ll probably give you a call Thursday. Clear your calendar. 🙂 I’ll ttyl! Love & miss you!
