Work, work, work…

Thursday, October 20th, 2005

Feels like all I have been doing lately is working on stuff. Working on work stuff, working on home stuff, working…well I’ve just been busy. Tonight will be another busy night for me since I haven’t really been home for the last few weeks and all the work I have to do at home has just been piling up.

One of the things that has been keeping me from the house is Volleyball. For the past two weeks I have been playing Sunday, Monday and Wednesday. It is taking up way too much of my time. I was asked to sub for my work team again this Sunday, but we are doing something at my parent’s house on Sunday for my brother’s birthday, so I had a good excuse to turn them down. I fear that next season I will have to go part-time on one of my other two teams. I am really enjoying Mondays and I get a lot of play time on the court which has been decreasing on the my Wednesday team. I love the Wednesday team, but I think playing on Mondays is better for my ability overall. I am going to offer to go part-time for them. That is I will stay on the roster to sub when they need me, but I will not play if they have enough people to field a team. This should also save me some money on gas. Bonus!

We lost all 3 VB games last night, but Dad came out to watch and that was cool. He said that we outplayed the other team but they out muscled us.

When I got up this morning I decided to give a smaller size a try and I am now sitting here wearing a size 16 out in public for the first time in probably 8 years. This makes me very happy. I am really excited for my mom to get home and go shopping with me for some new summer tops. She told me to go ahead and raid her closet in the meantime, but I haven’t done that yet.

I have been on a big broccoli kick the past couple of days. I read that broccoli is a good food to eat when you have issues with inflammation, so I have been eating it in hopes that it will help lower my CRP. We went to Red Lobster last night and I was thrilled to find that they now have a light house menu that shows you the NI on the food. I got myself some salmon for the omega-3 and some broccoli for the folic acid. Yummy and nutricious. What more could you ask for?
