1 – I am currently on Day 5 of being (mostly) sugar-free and it’s going okay. I’m hungry all the time, which I’m guessing has to do with the fact that I’m not eating the right foods. I’m eating enough, but instead of replacing all the sugary foods I used to eat with better, more filling foods, I’ve just taken out the bad foods. This is all a learning process, though, and I imagine I’ll learn so much more in the coming weeks.
2 – I’ve been thinking of deleting all the games I play on my phone (Words with Friends, Hanging with Friends, Scramble with Friends, and Draw Something). Currently, I am playing 55 games between the four games. Fifty. Five. Games. That’s pure insanity. At the very least, I’m thinking of deleting my Draw Something account since it’s become so overwhelming to keep up with. And I’m just not creative when it comes to drawing anything that it’s not fun anymore. I think it’s time to just delete it and move on. The world will not end.
3 – My mom and I are planning to take a little weekend trip to Orlando next month. I still have one day I can use on my 3-day Disney pass I bought back in January and my mom has two days. And since it’s such a drag driving all the way to Orlando, spending an entire day at a park, and then driving home, we decided we’d just spend the weekend there instead. I really can’t wait! Since I don’t count my mom’s marathon as a vacation, I don’t think we’ve been on one since July! And now we’ll have this weekend in April, our 6-day cruise in May, and then another 4-day cruise in June. Exciting, exciting!
4 – I know it’s weird, but I get a strange thrill out of paying all my bills whenever I get paid. I keep a log of what needs to go where for each paycheck and it’s fun for me to make a plan of where my money will go. Maybe living in constant financial disarray most of my life makes me so thankful I can easily pay my bills, as well as pay for extras, that doing so is fun? I’m not sure. I’m getting way too deep about money for a Friday morning. Don’t get me wrong, I still get a little bummed out when the majority of my paycheck is gone before I even see it thanks to bills, but the thrill is always there.
5 – I’m trying to decide if I want to chop my hair off again before my cruise. Sometimes, I see photos of myself with my shorter hair and get such longing to be back there. But then it’s so nice to have longer hair that I can pull up in a ponytail whenever I don’t feel like styling it. I don’t know what to do! The pictures below just make me want to have my short, cute hairstyle back.
5 – It has been a crazy week in the NFL. First, Sean Payton gets suspended for a year (losing out on over $7 million dollars, as well!) for the bounty controversy, Gregg Williams suspended indefinitely, as well as penalties for other coaches involved. Listen, I follow a host of Saints fans on Twitter so I’m not going to get involved in the mess. I’ll just say that I think this penalty is necessary and needed for change to come for any other bounty schemes happening around the league, because it’s a disgusting thing to reward a player to physically injure another player. That is not football. Also in football this week, Peyton Manning is now a Bronco (WHY, PEYTON, WHY?!?!) and Tim Tebow is now on my most-hated team, the New York Jets. So, sadly, Tebow and I have broken up. (What? You didn’t know we were dating? Funny… neither did he…)
6 – I’m so excited for my weekend! Weekends are always exciting for me, but since I’ve been doing my sugar-free thang for the past five days and Saturday is my cheat day… I am super excited! Saturday will be the first week since the beginning of February that I won’t go to boot camp (I haz a sad) but I will be going to the salon to get my hair color freshened up and my eyebrows waxed. And somehow, my mom and I managed to book the same appointments, just flip-flopped. We didn’t book our appointments together, yet somehow we managed to do just that! The rest of Saturday is up in the air but I smell a trip to the mall with my mom in our future! Sunday, I have tentative plans with a friend to spend the day at Busch Gardens. I haven’t been there in a long time (despite the fact that I have a pass to go for free!) so it should be a fun day. And Sunday night is our #twookclub chat! We’re discussing Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close so anyone who has read the book is free to join in. We’ll be discussing it on Twitter at 9:00pm EST!
7 – Speaking of #twookclub, if you haven’t voted for our April book, you have just a few more days to do so! I’m closing the poll at 8:00pm EST and will announce it then. Currently, there are two books tied for first and another one close behind, so get your vote in! Head on over to the Goodreads page, scroll to the bottom, and you’ll see the poll. I can’t wait to announce the winner!
When is your next vacation? Any fun weekend plans?
