I probably deserve the award for the worst blogger of the week, but I've fallen on busy times and unfortunately, the blog was placed on the back burner. I'm comforted by the fact that the blogs I most frequent have also been a little slack this week so at least I'm not the only one.
I think I mentioned that when I got back from vacation I was given the lead on a program at work and so I've spent the last two and a half weeks trying to get up to speed on that in addition to my keeping up with the other programs I work on. So, to say that I've been busy at work is a bit of an understatement. I've very grateful for the opportunity and welcome the new challenge. The only issue is that when I get home in the evenings I just don't feel like getting on the computer again so I've got to find a happy medium somehow.
Also this week I've started a new class at the gym. Since January I've been trying to get a Women on Weights Class started at the Y. I actually paid for the class that was slated for a January start, but then it was cancelled because the instructor had foot surgery (I can relate). After she came back from surgery she tried to start the class again but I was the only taker, then I went on vacation and long story short, we finally started the class this week when we had five people (including myself) sign up. It's a strength and conditioning class and we meet with a personal trainer two nights a week for six weeks. So far we've met twice and I have really enjoyed it.
I don't recall if I mentioned it or not, but when I got back from vacation, my lawn mower pooped out on me. I started mowing one night and after about three laps around the yard the mower just decided to stop. Thankfully my cousin Chris and his wife Amy came over on Monday night and Chris was able to get the mower working again. I was thrilled because I did not want to have to pay someone to mow the grass again or possibly buy a new mower or possibly pay lots of money for someone to take a look at it. So, I was and remain very grateful that Chris was able to get it up and running again.
I think that's about all for now, although there seems like there should be more since I've been scare around these parts. I suppose work has taken up most of my time lately and I assure you, that's not good blogging material.
I hope you all have a nice and relaxing weekend and with any luck, I'll do a better job of posting next week! Until then...
