Fairy tales can come true, it can happen to you, if you’re young at Heart

Happy October! The site is pink in honor of breast cancer awareness month. Which has nothing to do with the Heart Walk fundraising that we’re doing. Yesterday we reached our goal (Thank you, Papa T–!) but if you still want to donate, of course there’s time! 🙂

Yesterday was a bunch of nothing. I’m learning how to do the weekly and monthly financial reports for the department. I’d say I’m being groomed for another position, but Damon will eventually learn the ‘numbers’ thing too. It’s a lot to wrap my mind around — Expenses, revenue, profit, cost centers, thick fan-folded greenbar reports. Yeesh.

I did manage to squeak out a visit to the gym last night at 8:30 (30 minutes on elliptical for overall skinniness, 60 stomach crunches for a flat tummy and whittled waist, 10 assisted chinups for buff arms, 15 heel raises for killer calves, and one very tired webdiva). My Smallworld fantasy football team, the Pirates of the Delaware, are now in 3rd place in our division of 10, due to my dumb-luck acquisitions of both Peyton Manning and Brett Favre. Heh.

Clothing-wise, I’m layered like a linebacker to counter the bitter chill of South Jersey’s BEST Newspaper. And wearing full-length pantyhose, by the way. 😉

Mood: Happy
Wt: 142.2, and facing grand challenge of bowlsful of Halloween candy in the apartment.
Especially the Hershey’s Special Dark miniatures. I adore Hershey’s Special Dark.
Work docket: I went from a pleasant level of work to an obscene amount. I have to sort through the hundreds of transactions on these greenbar reports to find 65 of a certain type. There’s a Health Care Job Fair coming up, and I have to do a promo for that. PLUS, I finally, FINALLY got stuff for the Millionaire contest. The one that I’ve been waiting for materials on for over a week. Contest starts on Sunday. I knew that would happen. Plus I need to do some recipe updates, and Online Mall. Woah.
Lunch: Healthy Choice Chicken Parmigiana. I have no hopes for this one.
Afternoon: Rousing walk with the Hopeslayer, aka Max.
Evening: Dinner with my brother, John, in an effort to continue our very good sibling relationship even though life consistently yanks us in different directions. Yoga at 7:30.

Getting a bit nervous about the Heart Walk on Sunday. Will I be up to the challenge of five miles?!?
