aisforamy: december 2011 (mwahahahaha)
I did it! I reached my goal weight today and have officially dropped 70 pounds! I don't think I've worn a size ten since I was a junior in high school! *Dances* Now I just have to keep up with the healthy choices and new lifestlye!

In other news...I need a new job. I am SO TIRED of the drama and the whole new idiotic way of doing things. I just want to help kids learn stuff and grow up to be good, smart people. Can I do that, please? Without the crappy bureaucracy? I have sent in a few applications online, and will surely do more over the weekend. I don't need much more than twenty five hours a week--hell I'll even take minimum wage, since mine is only supplemental income to what my husband brings home. I just can't stay and be a party to kids losing out because the powers that be are so stuck on the numbers produced by standardized testing and covering their own asses.

BTW...did you know that many states use THIRD GRADE reading test scores to determine how much space the PRISONS will need in twenty years? That scares the crap out of me.

UGH. Rant over. I have a good life over all and am very blessed.

Yesterday was a nice day. It was my sister's birthday and we went to see my niece's new baby, Dylan. He's beautiful (though I may be biased). We cooed over him for a couple of hours then went shopping and had the (diet approved) lunch I packed. As much as I hate them, I broke down and bought a pair of flip flops. As often as I go for pedicures, it seemed prudent to have them on hand for when my toes aren't quite dry.

As mentioned, I got my haircut yesterday, and after styling it this morning, I have the urge to go back and kick the girl who cut it in the shins. I knew the bangs were way too short when I left, and that she'd taken off closer to two inches than one. I was not happy, but my hair grows pretty fast. The thing I didn't notice yesterday was that I have a random layer in my hair on ONE side that was not there before! What the heck? For today, a barrette is is my quick fix.

I also woke up this morning feeling gross. I have a scratchy throat and a runny nose. How many times can I get this cold? I swear that the school should implement a rule that kids the come to school with a cough must wear surgical masks. We had two girls in class coughing and hacking all of last week, and neither one of them could remember to cover their mouths. I predict that I am not going to be the only person with a cold at school today. *Medicates and packs tissues and sanitizer*

Other than that, life is good. The diet is going okay--it's not very exciting, but I don't want food to remain the focus of my life in the future. Especially in my family, we use food to reward, comfort, entertain, etc. I need to find other outlets and ways to spend my time than going to restaurants when I want a night out. I could probably easily buy a new pair of shoes or something else a month if I cut out my eating out budget. I have a feeling I'll be seeing a lot of movies in the future, too, to avoid the restaurant trap.

Anyway, I didn't mean to ramble on. I need to pack my kids' lunches and get out the door for work. I hope everyone else is having a great day!
