Blog Hibernation

::::yawn:::: ::::stretch::::

I feel like I've been in blog hibernation! I'm waking up now, I promise. I've just been dealing with and living life...and I wasn't much inclined to blog about any of it. Sometimes you just need to take a break!

Anywho, I'm going to try and catch you up really fast because I have a lot of work to do today. That was a #FAIL on my part, as to how I planned my "to do" list today. *facepalm*

So...

  • LDR and I are still together. His company still hasn't opened up any comparable positions down here. Grrrrrr. We are dealing with it and taking it one month at a time. He came down to celebrate my birthday and we had a great time. We ate like we were going into hibernation, and that just won't do. I know they say being happy, you tend to gain weight. We've got to STOP THE INSANITY! <--in my Su.san Pow.ter voice.


  • At the end of said birthday celebration, LDR was to head home on 2/1. The northeast weather had other plans, so he got to stay for an extra day. And on that day I broke the middle toe on my right foot. Ugh! If it's not one thing, it's another. That slowed down my cardio progress. Well - let's be real. It stopped it completely. Which leads to my next update.


  • I've started taking yoga! Yay! Always something I wanted to try. Then my lovely friend Stacy invited me to try out one of her classes. I love it! I now get up with the roosters, and take her 5:45am flow class on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. I learn something new each class, and I learn things that can be applied to life, and not just class. If you've never done yoga, you should try it. Find a beginners course in your area. I took LDR to a Twilight Yoga class when he came down for my birthday. Pretty much a flow class, but all done by candle light. I don't think he realized how much work it is. At the end of our sun salutations, it went something like this:

    LDR: Am I supposed to be sweating in yoga? (at this point we're all down in Child's Pose)

    Stacy: Yes...we're getting your blood flowing, building heat.

    LDR: Oh. OK. 'Cause I'm over here sweatin' like a brotha at a Klan meeting!

    Me: *facepalm* *slayed*

    Can't do nothin' but love him! LOL!


  • The job transition with my company is flowing smoothly. We officially become part of the new entity on 3/1. It should actually create more opportunities in management, etc. I'm excited about it.


  • I got an iPad! Yay! I love this thing. I got the 3G 64GB version. The other day, I took my car to Aut.oBe.ll to take advantage of the beautiful weather. Thanks to the 3G I was able to sit there and post while waiting for my car. Did I mention that I love this thing? 'Cause...yeah.


  • Still moving forward on my plans to pay down debt, increase savings and life insurance. I should be able to pay off another lump sum in a few weeks, and then after that it's slow and steady to pay off the remaining balances. Definitely a work in progress! But I've noticed I've been more conscious about my spending. Like, I only got that iPad because I'm getting a bonus at work, and as soon as the bonus $ is deposited, the iPad will be PIF'd!


  • What's new with y'all?

I was reminded 3x of my first love(career wise) from things internet friends talked about the other day. It renewed a "fire" in me and I've got some things in the works.

I left #TeamBlackberry and am now part of #TeamDroid. I was w/ BB for 6yrs. It felt like a bad relationship, it wasn't BB..it was me! lol


Speaking of my phone, I LOVE it! I can't imagine using any other phone now. SOooo much to do on it.

I want an e-reader. I love having actual books but:
1. I have no room for books at my current house(all my books are still in boxes)
2. Hardbacks are around $25 and e-books are $10-15..um yea.

I made some financial changes at the beginning of this year and so far so good.

I'll be in CLT next weekend and get to meet a few of my fav blog/Twitter friends. YAY!

Yay!!!! I downloaded the Nook eReader and the Kindle eReader for the iPad...and then of course they have iBooks. I looking for bargain books on Barnes & Noble. Nothing like a $0.85 book to make you feel like you hit the lotto. LOL!

I am (im)patiently waiting until October when I WILL give #TeamBlackberry the boot and become a part of #TeamiPhone. :::does the cabbage patch:::

See...I need an .85 book in my life!!! LOL

Blackberry is going to have to step it up to keep folks around.

I've been wondering where the hell you were! Sucks about the toe - get it all healed up so we can do some Nike+ racing.

I left the blackberry nation last week and at first I was so, so sad. Now I am enjoying my iPhone and anxiously awaiting that bonus so I can justify the iPad. I'm strictly Mac'ly these days, it seems.

Glad you're back! Stay this time, m'k?
