Last week sucked eggs. Seriously. But that was last week and this is this week and this week is all about the positive. Maybe at some point this week I’ll share all the sucky things that happened last week, but for now I want to get lots of good energy flowing.
In 26 days, just 615 hours, I will be in Las Vegas, Nevada. It’s my first big girl vacation and I’m getting really excited. I’m flying alone and meeting up with a friend at the airport. She’s flying in from a different state. From there we are going to head to our hotel, the beautiful Orleans located just a short free shuttle ride off the strip, to settle in for 8, count ‘em, 8 days of fun. We arrive on Saturday the 9th and we head home on Saturday the 15th.
Now I know most people say that two or three days in Vegas is more than enough but this trip isn’t about gambling and drinking and stuff like that. It’s about spending a week with a friend that I haven’t seen in years. Vegas is just a place for us to meet up together.
I’d like to make a CD of Las Vegas themed music so if you know any good songs about Vegas or with Vegas in them please leave a comment. There’s a skein of Noro and a copy of the Las Vegas Mix CD for the person who suggests the most songs! Last day for suggestions will be Friday, September 1st.
Continuing with the countdown theme there’s only 54 days until Hockey season. Oh yeah baby. October 7th is the first game. 7pm, Chicago Wolves vs the Peoria Rivermen. Let’s hope we start this new season with a win. I’m trying to figure out what sort of knitted project I want to make for this season. Last year was hats, I need to make myself a new one since I gave every one I made away, but I’m thinking I may make a small stuffed jersey or something like that. Maybe a checkered blanket with “LETS GO WOLVES” spelled out or something. Hehe maybe a knitted hockey stick and puck. How cute would that be?
Another count down. Remember back in April? When I joined a gym, gave up Pepsi and weighed in? Remember what the weight was? A whopping 178 pounds. Well I don’t own a scale and I haven’t been going to the gym because I’ve been biking outside, the gym is more for winter months, so I had no idea how much I weighed. Well I was over at Casey’s house and I weighed in on her scale.
Drumroll please… 163 pounds! I lost 15 pounds just by not sucking on Pepsi every day and doing a little (very little) physical activity. I did the happy dance all day.
And Sunday I got kissed on the cheek at the faire. *giggle*
Our system is down at work so even though I didn’t sleep well it doesn’t matter because I don’t have anything to do except relax and read blogs until things get going again.
Here’s to a great week!
