Happy spring...

(photo from
It's finally here!! But unfortunately between work and the boys, sickness (Owen then me), planning a baby shower for my SIL and buying a house, i've been such a slacker here at the ol' blog! And with the exercise and writing down what I eat (not to mention actually watching what I eat). I took all of last week off from exercise because my chest hurt so bad when I drew deep breaths that I knew I couldn't keep up in class. Not to mention the coughing fits that happened repeatedly last week, the girls in class would have probably given me dirty looks!! I guess it was fine because springing ahead definitely stunk this year and I needed my rest! Oh I hate it being dark again when I get up. Blech!

So to get back on track I weighed in this a.m. If you'll remember I was to be at 160.6 can do my friends. 163.2. So not awful, just think of how I might have been today had it not been for being sick last week. But we can't go backward, only forward!! So a good breakfast, a little coffee and some water today. Watching what goes in my mouth (thank goodness the Girl Scout cookies are almost gone)...i'll get back on track. After all, summer is only a season away!

So spill are you doing?

Just plain weird...

I've heard other people have done this quiz to find out what their best career path is by simply choosing the colors you most like to look at (of the above it's orange) and the colors you least like to look at (of the above it's lime green). If you know me at all, you know this fits:

"Best Occupational Category"

Self-Control, Practical, Self-Contained, Orderly, Systematic, Precise, and Accurate
These conservative appearing, plotting-types enjoy organizing, data systems, accounting, detail, and accuracy. They often enjoy mathematics and data management activities such as accounting and investment management. Persistence and patience allows them to do detailed paperwork, operate office machines, write business reports, and make charts and graphs.
Suggested careers are Administrator, Secretary, Printer, Paralegal, Building Inspector, Bank Cashier, Private Secretary, Statistician, Operations Manager, Financial Analyst, Bookkeeper, Medical Records Technician, Developer of Business or Computer Systems, Clerical Worker, Proofreader, Accountant, Administrative Assistant, Banker, Certified Public Accountant, Credit Manager, Store Salesperson, Actuary, Dental Assistant, Business Education Teacher, Food Service Manager, IRS Agent, Budget Analyst, and Underwriter.
Your very careful, conscientious, conservative nature gives others the confidence to trust you with handling money and material possessions. Structured organizations that have well-ordered chains of command work best for you."

Weird no? The only thing that's TOTALLY wrong is that "they often enjoy mathematics...accounting and investment management." I definitely do NOT enjoy these things. However, the suggested career of "Administrator" is freaky right-on. Try it out!! You might figure out you'd be happier somewhere else? :)
