Procrastination is my middle name

30 May

Not really. However, today it sure feel like it is. Eli left for a three day trip this morning. I had big plans to take care of a few things that have been hanging over my head today so that on Monday I could enjoy the day off. I was supposed to work on a client report, tie up some loose ends with my MK business and follow up on MK leads for future appointments. NONE OF IT HAPPENED.

What I did instead. Took a nap when Ari did, went on a walk halfway up the street and back with Ari which took about 30 minutes. (his legs are short¬† plus we had to stop at every single bush, flower, rock, car, etc so he could stop, point and ask what is that?) and went on a shopping trip at Target. Luckily, I got out of Target with spending less than 50 bucks-though I am sure my hubby is wondering what I purchased that would cost us 48.00. ūüėČ (Eli, I know you are reading this!)

I hate it when I get this way. I realize how unproductive it is and it only makes me “worry” about the things I need to get done. Tomorrow is a new day and clean slate to get my “stuff” done.

That is what I am eating as I type this post. Trying not to get PB on my hubby’s mac. Oh would I be in such trouble!

I am laying in bed with a nasty cold and it sucks! I hate being sick. I seriously feel like I’ve been hit my a truck. I know it’s been awhile since I posted. Really hasn’t been too much going on in these parts. The main thing is just making sure I keep my job. I am sure everyone is feeling this way. The last post was my toastmaster’s speech. It went really well. I was pleased. Next month, I am taking on the role as an evaluator. This is when you provide an evaluation of another member’s speech. ¬†You have to go up to the front of the room and share your thoughts. You are also being evaluated on how you evaluated. I am pleased at my progress with this club. I see it more from the inside then really my speaking abilities. I have more confidence. It feels good not to beat myself up anymore. Makes me wonder about my twenties and if I didn’t beat myself up so much where would I be career wise.

Our trip to Chile was fantastic. I am so happy we took advantage and went. Non-reving worked out great. We ended up in first class on the way down to Santiago. This was my first long, international flight. The reason why we decided to go to Chile is this. Eli ¬†lived there in 2001-2002. He traveled all over south america and learned spanish fluently. The family he stayed with became his chilean family. He still keeps in touch with them. We even invited them to our wedding but it was too cost prohibitive for them to come. Since the airline Eli flies for has a direct flight to santiago from dallas, we said hell ya, let’s do this!¬†

We packed in ¬†a ton of sight seeing in the 5 days we were there. We did a day trip to Santiago, Valparaiso and Vina Del Mar. I’ve posted the pics on FB because I still have not figured out how to feed flicker into this blog. If anyone can help me that would be great. ¬†Speaking Spanish was rough. It was easier in C*uba but I think it was because I was drinking the whole time we were there. Chile weather wise is very similar to California. It was a wonderful Mediterranean climate. It was warm during the day and cool at night. The first night we were there, there was a horrible, horrible wind storm that came off the Andes Mountains. It knocked down many trees at the Chilean family’s home. These pine trees that cracked were huge and 30 years old. The grandma counted the rings in the trunk! Power was knocked out until Saturday. It was an experience.

Going home we had no issues with getting on flights. We arrived back home on Tuesday afternoon and proceeded to sleep the rest of the day. Going back to work that week was a challenge. 

Hope everyone is having a good weekend. I think it is time for me to take a nap or watch an episode of Friday night lights. Does anyone else watch this show? It seriously makes me want to move to Texas and have eli coach football and I will become a teacher–which is my dream anyway.¬†

I have a list a mile long of things I need to accomplish. ¬†I did accomplish one thing on that list tonight. It was make dinner. ¬†Yes, I am that lazy. ¬†The other things on that list I decided to ignore. What I did instead. Well, you are looking at it. I’ve created my new blog home. I just spent the last two hours on word press when I could have been doing a number of things. One of them was work out. I just weighed myself. I really should have worked out tonight. Oh well. ¬†I will just add it to the list of tomorrow’s to do items.
