Three months plus a few days into 39 Project.....and some other stuff, too

Forgive me Father for I have sinned....it's been over a month since my last blog post......




Whoops!  Wrong faith!!

Following along the oft-repeated tenet of "Though Shalt Not Blog Or Else Thine Luck Willst Turneth to Shit"....I have stayed away from my site......

It seems like this is a good, lazy Sunday to procrastinate the bill paying with the blog posting.....




Catching up in stream of consciousness order.....




I'm three months into my 39 Project.  Maybe I've unpacked a box.  Or two.  Or not.

But I've been 75% faithful to WW (ok....maybe 65% is closer to it) and I've lost over 16 lbs.

And I'm nine weeks or so into C25K and TODAY I RAN FOR 30 MINUTES WITHOUT STOPPING....at a 4.0 pace...THAT'S TWO MILES!  I'm well on my way to actually being able to run a 5K in Avalon at the end of this summer.....



I closed my office.  And mourned the death of a job that shouldn't have died.  I packed my shit up, kissed my office goodbye, and drove home in silence.


But the last week was maudlin fun.

"You want this"

"Sure"

"Well then, take it home tonight"

"OK"

(back and forth between my boss and I)



Did I mention that I'm now the proud owner of a serious set of kitchen cabinets that I rescued from my (now gutted) former office?  A contractor-friend is taking me on as a pity case and going to build me a new kitchen this summer......whoo hoo!!



On a whim, I entered a contest to win a Le Creuset 3.5 quart round French Oven.

AND I FUCKING WON IT!!

SUCK THAT, EVIL SUCKAGE OF THE UNIVERSE.

I found out on Friday afternoon.....so my entire weekend has been bathed in the glow of....wait for it.....

WINNING!!!!!



Sorry....I couldn't help myself.




Oh, and I broke in a massive case of hives THE DAY BEFORE I WAS LOSING MY HEALTH INSURANCE.  Nothing like begging your way into a doctor's office for an emergency appointment when you've got 24 hours (or less) of medical eligibility left.




Skipping back a week or so, we ran our March Madness brackets here at home....

Me, Batman & the Tiny Titan.

AND I'VE GOT THE CHAMPIONSHIP BELT BACK, BABY!!

Duh.......winning!!!!




I also did something that I thought I'd never have to do.

I signed up for unemployment benefits.
