I'm Losing.

Please explain how a person gets punished for being neat and tidy!  Ok, I will explain it.  They stack magazines in the waiting area and get paper cut between the fingers.  Oh, I'm sorry, I like to keep the waiting area looking presentable.  I'm sorry that I feel like that area is my work living room.

Thanks a lot, Cosmos.

You're a real jerk.

I'm Winning.

I bought a pair of running shorts from Target today for one dollar and twenty five cents.  And they fit like a glove.

Until next time........

Get Crazy, Get Wild

Yesterday was day one of Half Marathon Training III.  i.e. week three.  Yes.  Wearing my "procrastinator" label with pride, I'm jumping right in at week three to finish a training plan just in time.  This, pared with haphazard planning, resulted in the accidental running of an extra half mile last night.  I hope the cosmos took note.  This equals points somewhere else, right?  Not only did I run a extra half mile, but was also on time/early to work today.  WIN!  Only time will tell if it's an actual win.  Don't worry, either the win or loss will be thoroughly documented through blogposts right here.

Since the latest addition to our family (no....not a child....but a puppy!) my schedule has become more routine.  And by routine, I mean we get up at about the same time every day, we eat on a regular basis, no wrecking of cars, purchasing of homes or moving of stuff....just ........normal things.  Finally!  And it's sooooo nice.  I feel like I'm playing house, but it's real life, apparently.

Snookie (newest addition.....she's a cute little Corgi.) has effectively learned to sit and walk on a leash.  And to run around like a crazy little dog while I sing the theme song to Jersey Shore.  It's heartwarming, really.  Almost as heartwarming as internet shopping.  Which I did a little of yesterday for my office.  I figured that working directly with undergraduates automatically licenses me to hang this on my wall:

Which is precisely what I went shopping for....

Cheers!  Until next time!

99 Problems.........But a Blogpost Ain't One

Please take note that this is the 100th blogpost on Life as Encountered by RC.  I've been encountering life and blogging for you, dear friends....and don't think it will ever end.  Nope.  Shan't.

Home ownership...........this would be one of my 99 problems.  The state of being a homeowner is bittersweet.  Far more sweet than bitter.  I shall not grow tired of trips to Lowe's, redecorating, painting (who are we kidding?  I never want to look at/smell paint again...) putting nails in the wall where ever I want to.......What I shall grow tired of is not being able to call my landlord to fix my garage door button.  I mean, I could call her, but it might be confusing.

I have major plans for the two spare bedrooms, too.  I can't help but envision my little family running around in my very own house.  Ahhhh it's sweet!

Endless training.....................................this would be one of the problems.  Need I say more?  Do you see that I'm work blogging?  Are you inferring why I'm work blogging?

I'm about to even plan a menu so as to avoid training and am looking forward to a trip to my, how the turntables.  (HEB is a new post in itself.  There is a brand-spanking new one right by our house.  The cosmos is finally paying me back for some of the stuff it OWES me.  IT OWES ME, I tell you.

Furthermore, I'm picking out items from here and shopping online.  It sounds like its only a matter of days until I'm fired.....I know (THAT would be one of the 99 problems, to say the least).  I sound irresponsible.  But really....I'm getting everything done.  And in a timely manner. These activities I describe to you occur in between  work tasks.......

Ok, until next time.....I'll have something funny, I promise.  Maybe.

Work Blogging...Can I do this now that I manage people?

Swirling like a whirlwind full of leaves and bits of photos: this is what my mind feels like.  For the past month I went non-stop, almost like I was in auto pilot.  Now that things slow down, my mind seems to be stuck going at a rapid pace.  It's amazing how self absorbed I can get when things are going 90 mph.  In addition to the situation with my eyebrows, I let other things slide.  Well, I'm back.  I plan on getting everything all caught up in the morning; time not allotted to anything for one reason: SNOW DAY!

It basically has to look like it's going to flurry and A&M will shut campus down.  Ahhhh, the beauty of being back in Aggieland.  We got really excited about OWNING a fireplace.  (That's right.  I own things.  I answer to no one.  what.  WHAT.)  And went and purchased fireplace things.  Don't think I'll be doing anything other than enjoying the crackling fire in my living room while not going to work because of snow-ish.

And hanging pictures.

And painting.

And drinking hot coco.

I'll let you know how it goes.
