I would love a giant peach, right now.
When do they come back in season?

Peace, I love the word peace.

I’m having one of those moments. The one that goes something like “aaahh, I’m at peace with myself.”

I had my annual review at work last week. All I can say is “hell yes!” Basically my boss said I’m a great staff member with the most cross training in our store. She also wants to see me be more confidant in what I know. Hey, I can totally do that! She also is really pushing me to learn more about beer and wine. Hey, I’m getting my pouring license today! Oh, and I got the whole talk less to distract other staff members less, again. Even thought I’m professionally trained as a massage therapist, I love that I’m working where I’m working. I think if anyone will help me get ahead in the company, it will be my current boss. I’m very happy that she is at my location and I hope she stays. I also feel pretty awesome that I can’t really think of anything bad to say about the company I work for, even after almost 7 years. I love what we do, stand for, and how much we are involved in the communities we are in.

I also feel like I have my money under control. Getting my tax return helped with this. I paid extra on my credit cards. I’m using Microsoft money to help me organize my bills. I finally have just one student loan to pay off, I’ve already paid off three.

My goal for the next few months is to stay on track with Weight Watchers and not lose and gain the same 5 pounds over and over. I’m so close to being under 200. I haven’t been under 200 since 2002 or late 2001. I’m finally back to where I can say, I gained a crap load of weight on Paxil but I’ve lost 50lb of it. I feel like my goal of 155 is so far off, but I’m very “eyes on the prize” right now. I’m going to Napa this summer and I want to wear little sun dresses!! I’m thinking about getting a tattoo of my highest weight on my ribcage as a reminder of how far I’m come and where I never want to go back to.

I also want to start looking more polished. I feel that being fatter has always given me an excuse to not look good, things never fit right! (as I say this I’m lounging in sweats and a Hanes tee) I actually know a thing or two about style, I just have been larger and poorer than I am at the moment. I’ve already invested in a beautiful pair of boots. (boots first because I’ll always be a size 9, no matter how big my ass is) I’m ready to invest in staples, and staples are where its at! Invest in the classic pieces that will look great in 5 years. And with the way the economy is going, why would you want to invest in trendy anything?

And lastly, I can’t wait for Kevin and I to be able to buy a house. I love the little house we are in now. We both have offices. We don’t have to commute to work. We have a yard with lots of potential. I really hope we can buy this house.
