It's the most wonderful time of the year!

Tuesday Tuesday Tuesday! I leave for NM is less than 2 days. My flight out of San Antonio is at 6:30am on Thursday. Normally I would depise having to wake up that early, but for this I'm making an exception! I can't wait, I'm so excited!

I must admit, as hard as I"m trying it's so hard to eat healthy this time of year, literally people are throwing food at you every corner you turn! Take for instance today at work, we are having a "munch fest" we all brought in something to eat, right now, it's just sitting in the conference room, I have yet to succumb to that, it's only 9:30am for crying out loud!! Yesterday I went with my boyfriend to his company's open house. Under normal circumstances I would have ate healthy and made it to the gym, but yesterday everyone in the department had a food table and since I went during my lunch break, that meant that was my lunch and none of the tables had anything healthy, so once again I cheated on my diet! LOL and right after that we both took the afternoon off to finish up some Christmas shopping (note: I actually didn't get any shopping done, since the only thing that i bought ended up being something for myself) so that ended up being my gym time and by the time we got back home, we had eaten at Fuddruckers!! So today I'm determined to do better! I fully intend on running tonight! I just have to! Anyway I hope you are all doing better!

6 more shopping days left.....

Today is Monday, so for me that means back to work, but this is going to be a short week, I only work through Wednesday and then early Thursday morning I'm flying back home!! Yay! I can't wait I'm so excited. I get back late Tuesday night and that makes next week only a 3 day work week again and then the following week is a 4-day work week, with the New Year holiday, so the next three weeks are looking good! This past SundayI finally made myself go Christmas shopping and much to my surprise got most of it done, I still need a few minor things, but must say for a family my size, it was such a relief to get it all done in just one day! My bank account is hurting right now, but hey it's all in good fun!

Barely Thursday!

Is this the longest week ever or what!! The funny thing is, I really don't have plans for the weekend, I guess I'm just ready for the holidays! In exactly one week I will be heading home to New Mexico! I can't wait, I have a brand new nephew who I've yet to meet! The anticipation of going home could be what's causing time to almost stand still.

Last night, I went to watch "King Kong" and despite not seeing the first "editions" this movie was great! The only problem that I had was the theatre that I went to see it at. It appears that being in San Antonio has placed me right smack in the middle of Spanish Harlem for lack of better terms. I mean the people sitting behind us continuely answered their cell phone, repeating "pelicula" (movie in spanish) and the guy down the row (Note: they were one big group) looked like he just left his 40 on the porch, he was complete with of course his "wife beater" tank top, yeah, in the middle of December, I wouldn't be nagging on this guy, but he felt the need to talk loudly, in Spanish, during the entire movie, my guess is he was translating and to top it all off, their kids kept kicking the back of our seats!!!!

Despite all that and the million of people who let their kids run wild in a theatre it was a pretty good movie. We got our tub of popcorn and Diet Dr Pepper to even it out and I made it through the entire intermission free 3 hour movie without yelling at anyone!

Party Pic

That is a picture from my company's Christmas, Yes I said Christmas Party! It went alright, I left before I could drink anymore than one Jack and Diet so there's no big story there!

It's finally Friday!!! I've got lots planned for this weekend, well just Saturday anyway. I have to of course hit the gym, get my hair done, cut and highlights and then hit my Company's Christmas Party, which is being hosted at the Hilton off the Riverwalk! I still need to find something to wear to that thing which is also included in my Saturday plans. Rudy and I are also going to check out a house we're interested in and finally find a much needed real estate agent!! I need to remember at my Christmas party, that I can't get too drunk and make an ass out of myself in front of all my new coworkers!!! So, since there is cocktail hour at 6pm, I'm going to limit my drinks at the party to 3! LOL and then save the rest for after the event, when I'm no where in site of any! This is the first Christmas party I will be attending that's my own, the company I worked for last year, I didn't go to, because well I just didn't feel like it, I did go with my sister to hers and it was great, but the people she works with are so cool, they all go out together on a regular basis and do the happy hour thing all the time. Here on the other hand is a completely different story. Anyway all I can say is i can't wait for today to be over with, this has been a long ass week and I'm ready to not be working already!!!

Not dead.....

I know it's been almost a whole week since my last post! I've been here but with really nothing to say. But today I must say that it is freezing here in South Texas!!! Our high today is 32 and that's the high! I've been in this weather before, but not here in San Antonio, come on just this past Saturday I was wearing a sleeveless shirt! Not I'm wearing a wool pea coat, a nice one I may add that I was forced to spend $150 on, but hey it makes me look all grown up!! I have to admit though, that I'm actually enjoying this weather, this is how the weather is back home, this is how it's suppose to feel during Christmas. Now I feel all Christmasy and stuff! I want to start wrapping present, smell the scent of scotch tape (I know, I'm weird, so what) while wrapping gifts, but I can't wrap my gifts, because the last time I checked, you can't take wrapped gifts on a plane without them thinking you're a terrorist! So I will have to wait it out another 2 weeks. I am flying back home in 2 weeks! I'm so frickin excited I can't stand it! My boyfriend won't be coming with me, which were both a little upset about, but circumstances aren't allowing it (family drama, which I don't want to get into here) so it'll just be me!

This weekend is my company's Christmas party, so I've been trying to find something to wear. It's at the Hilton off of the Riverwalk, so I'm guessing it needs to be a little more than jeans and I nice top right?

Well I started my morning off well, I got a speeding ticket!! It was so unjustified!! A school zone starts where the flashing light sign is right? At least that's how it goes in New Mexico, where my current license is from, anyway he stated that the school zone starts further back (where he clocked me) and is indicated by a sign (Note: I redrove back and the only sign present is a sign indicating a cross walk ahead.) He clocked me a 31 (lower than 35) and said that I was in the school zone, which I defianetly opposed, after I handed him my NM driver's license he asked if I had a Texas driver's license, having not had any caffeine at this point, I shot back with, "Well if I had a TX driver's license, I would've handed you that and not a NM driver's license now would I?" and he walked off to write up my ticket! Frickin ASS!!! Anyway I fully intend on disputing this ticket because it was totally unjustified! *Sigh* So I'll be spending Jan 5 in court!

I've had my morning soda (caffeine) so I'm feeling a little better. I was supposed to get my hair cut and highlighted last night, but when I drove there I was informed they lost power and I had to reschedule my appoitment, this is after driving 45 mins in 5 o'clock traffic, needless to say I was a tad bit PO'd!! This just hasn't been my week!!!
