I have been running around like crazy the past few days, and it shows no sign of stopping until December at the earliest. By the end of the semester I'll be the bag lady on the corner shouting obscenities at passing cars with a flip flop on one foot and a stiletto on the other. Mark my words.

My office building has a nice little courtyard with a few fountains and running water in it. I always admire how nicely landscaped it is while at the same time wonder who decided to put the red flowers around orange ones around pink ones. Looks like vomit to me.

But anyways, my head was about to explode this afternoon and I swore if I heard one mroe telephone go off or one more passing conversation I was going to flip. So I headed outside and thought I'd stop by the fountains. Luckily, I know the layout so I was able to navigate through the vomit flowers without having to look at them. But once I got in front of the little waterfall and heard the running water - everything melted away. Twas a perfect 5 minutes, until I had to walk past the vomit flowers and come back into my office where the adding machine is running NON STOP. Oh well, 5 minutes is better than nothing.

13 days on Weight Watchers and so far so good. The real challenge is when school starts again (which is today!) in which I go from 6 am to 10 pm completely on the go. I'm committed though, and have already seen a few pounds disappear - so we'll make it work.

Still working on the 5k. I know I'm making it much harder than it needs to be. Sometimes I'm my own worst enemy.

The husband bought the P90X system this weekend and is super excited about starting it. I told him I'd join him. We bought pull up bars and I am embarassed to say I can't do a single one. Boy where I have I been the past 4 years? I've gone from college athlete to a chick who can't do any pullups? Horrifying.
