Memorial Weekend tidbits

So, have any plans for Memorial Weekend?  People are so cute to ask me that, because the answer is always the same-working! Don't feel bad for me-I have always worked holidays, weekends, etc because that's the business I'm in.  Radio isn't 9-5 M-F (except when you've won something and want to come get your prize on the weekend)   I don't mind and don't really care because I'm really not missing out.  I just have  my weekend another time.  Memorial Weekend is special tho because it is the kick off to summer, the Indy 500, graduations and BBQ's.  The most important  reason  for this weekend though is to remember our fallen heroes.  It's because of them that we get to live a pretty great life in America.  I am humbled and  honored by their sacrifice...THANK YOU!

Not sure that was a good idea:  I was trying to pack too many things in on Friday and decided to weight in after working out because it fit my schedule better.  Even though I had heard that weight can fluctuate dramatically after a hard workout, it still didn't help when I got on the scale and saw an increase of  1.5 lbs!    I had eaten good, done a good hard work out and my reward was the scale going up?!  That pretty much blows it.  As of this morning it is gone again, but I was pretty upset for a time yesterday! Had to battle the old demon of What's the point?  Why try? all this hard work and this is my reward? Calm down it was a glitch-it's not worthy of ruining everything   I'm gonna go back to weighing myself every morning...don't like surprises.

Guess who's coming to visit?  The parents will be here from June 1 - June 8 and I can't wait because we didn't get to do our usual Spring Break in Florida with them this year.  It's funny tho, my house is perfectly livable in the day to day operations of life.   Then, when you start deep cleaning for a visit,  you notice it needs painting and scrubbing, new windows/floors/carpets and all new furniture, don't get me started on the landscaping, and, and, and...I wonder if we could just move?!  Not an option, so we have to kick out a teen boy to make room, and since their rooms are equally disgusting, I'll have to flip a coin to see who gets to camp in the basement for the week. ugh, there's another spot that needs to be nuked.
