First off, sorry I've been completely slacking on keeping my blog updated this week. Things were a bit crazy this week & my mind was in a million places at one time. Plus, I haven't been living on the computer like I seem to do way too often. I've been working out a few times a week for the past month & I have finally gotten to the point that I actually look forward to it & feel blah if I don't do it. I haven't been like that since before I got sick so it's a VERY welcomed feeling. I doubt I'll ever get back to the shape I was in before I got sick but still, I can tell my energy level has gone up some & my arms are getting some of their definition back. (I have a very strong upper body b/c of how much I have to use them due to my disability.)
I am leaving for a job, well, actually, 3 jobs, in Michigan this afternoon. I was originally supposed to go to New Hampshire & I was really looking forward to it b/c I was going to see some of my stepmom's family while there. However, some issues came up w/ that job & then one of my friends who works as a rep. for Novartis (the pharmaceutical company I work w/) put in a request to have me come do some work w/ her in Michigan. So, even though New Hampshire fell through, I'm looking forward to seeing Melanie & hanging out w/ her for a couple of days. (she has the cutest baby boy!!) This job is going to be a bit different from the speaking engagements I usually do. Usually, the events I speak at are nice dinners. Two of these jobs are going to be lunches & one will be an early dinner. I realize this probably sounds super interesting to a lot of people. The main reason I'm blogging about this is to explain why I won't be posting much during the coming week.
Aside from seeing my girl, Melanie, I'm REALLY looking forward to cooler temperatures for a few days! This 105 degree crap is seriously for the birds!! Even Satan would hate it here during Summer. I just keep reminding myself that if I can make it through 4 or 5 more weeks, the first signs of Fall will finally start to come around. (SO excited! It's the start of my favorite time of year!) I've checked out the temps. in the area I'm going to & I am looking forward to a nice 80 degree day with a wonderful 65 degree evening.
Unlike the last trip I made to Michigan, I have already made sure my camera is packed. So, I should come back with some decent pictures that I can post. Hope everyone enjoys the rest of their weekend!! Be back in a few days! =)
