Day 7 of Successfulness

Against my better judgment I got weighed in today. Then as I was on the scale I remembered it didn't matter as long as I didn't look again.

Ignorance truly is bliss.

Apparently I lost a pound. Apparently a guy in the competition lost 12. Whatever. He doesn't carry the weight of procreating on his shoulders (or hips). Of course he can lose the weight.

I was impressed with losing a pound considering I was just buckled in 2 1/2 days ago.

Changing the subject.

I need a challenge. I'm feeling a little bored. Not really with work yet as I am training a bazillion hours a day. But in life.

I feel like now that school is over I don't have an admirable goal. You know, something to brag about.

I will admit I find it very difficult planning anything around my work right now. It'll probably be like this for the next few months. Wally and I found out a few days ago that we are going to need to purchase a second vehicle, as he is commuting 50 minutes to and from work every day. We really had hoped not to have to and thought we had something worked out with my parents (getting rid of their old car) but that fell through. We are so enjoying being debt free right now, we didn't want to lose that, however C'est la vie right? We've been spoiled since we sold our home.

Anyhoo, where was I? Oh yes, bored. So I want to do something. Learn something. Engage in something. Look forward to something, yet enjoy the process of getting it.

Since we moved here I've wanted to try some sort of dance class. I really don't care what just something to get me movin' and havin' fun at the same time.

I've thought about putting my cake decorating set to good use and taking a class - meeting new people. Now it doesn't sound that fun. Also thought about I could take a course at the college or something but I can get free day workshops through work.

Maybe I should just make it a priority to do something different. Why haven't I already learned this lesson? I should know this by now.

I am considering a trip to Thailand next spring for 2 weeks. It's that 'mission' trip I've always wanted to take. A friend of mine offered to travel with me and go. I asked Wally if there's a chance he may consider it. His considering may take some time. I definitely look forward to that but it is a ways off.

I like to be in the state f enjoyment - you know like in my 40 Days thing. I felt very alive doing that. Constantly learning something new about myself and those around me. Though originally it wasn't really relationally based, it turned out to be a very relational activity. It was outside of my box and fun too. Hmmmm. I've got to keep thinking.

I miss relationships, I think I want to do something that will nurture that part of me.

Thinking. Thinking. Thinking.
