{September 12, 2013}   Good news, Bad news…

You don’t really get to choose which you hear first since I didn’t have time for a poll.

Bad news? I am considering breaking my post-a-day challenge for this year…even though I already missed one day. why? well…I have been working SO MUCH this week that my hands are aching from typing, and I just don’t have much left in me each day to do a post EVERY day. 😦  It’s not for sure yet, but it is very possible.

Other bad news…I finally did my measurements for the month and for the 2nd month in a row, they are exactly the same….my weight has been the same for over a month, and I just appear to be stuck in a plateau….:(

GOOD news though is I sang for the first time in YEARS in front of an audience, albeit small….I sang the National Anthem on 9/11 for a small ceremony at the zoo held by the Woodmen of the World Lodge I am a part of.  When I said yes, I had no idea WHO was going to be there, but it turned out the Mayor of our city was there along with a Lufkin Daily News reporter, so I found out today that a picture of me singing made today’s front page of our newspaper with a picture of the whole group further into the newspaper…wow! Shocked….It was nice to finally sing again. I have never lost my love for it, I think I just kind of gave up on it.  Something about losing my Nanny, who loved to hear me sing, kind of makes me want to pursue it more than I have lately…

The other good news is that my birthday is coming up in 12 days…yes, I am turning the dreaded 30…but then again, yay birthday! 🙂

This is all my aching hands can muster out for tonight….I will be back sooner rather than later, though! 🙂

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
