Happy Post-Labor Day (or Labour Day if you’re Canadian)…

Tuesdays after a long weekend just seem like Mondays to me.  Usually they feel worse than actual Mondays because I’ve managed to over-indulged on the goodness that is a long weekend. 

The scale was not my friend this morning.  I don’t know why I even bother to punish myself and weigh in after a long weekend.  See the first point – too much goodness.
I started Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred last week.  Day 1 kicked me in the ass – so much so, that I couldn’t move for the next 3 days and by the time, I recovered it was the weekend.  So since last week was a big FAIL, I’m starting over tonight and hope I can make it to Day 3 before I have to take a break.  It’s all about “goal setting”.
The Boy starts his classes today, so it should be interesting to hear from him tonight.  All through his school years to date when asked what he learned, I received the response “nothing”, so I’m assuming of course, that tonight’s conversation won’t be any different.  If anything, he’s become more evasive.
Since The Boy has been gone, we’ve started to communicate more via text instead of phone calls.  This method of communication is certainly more economical, but I’m not sure how long it will last since I don’t like the ability to get immediate answers to my questions.   If The Boy doesn’t like the question, he just doesn’t bother to text me back.  I’ll be honest – it bugs the shit out of me.  Not that I’m trying to be controlling or anything, I’m just saying…
J and I weren’t planning any vacations until our big trip to Borneo in May, 2011, but last week, I happened upon a super cheap all-inclusive trip to the Dominican Republic in November, so guess where I’m going in 1 month, 28 days?   We really shouldn’t be spending the money right now, but hell – life’s too short not to enjoy it…
Happy Tuesday (that feels like a Monday) Everyone…

LOL, We get oh my phone was dead reply now from our freshman daughter. Sure.

We ate pretty well over the long weekend too. No scales tho. Thats worse than a hangover so why do it.

Have a great week.

Texting is the universal language. College daughter and mom do it all the time.

Don't you just love super cheap all inclusive vacations? In 72 days I'm going to the Amalfi coast!

I'm with you on Text communication. I'm not with it, it allows to much room for interpretation.

How could you pass up a super cheap all-inclusive? That's the kind of thing that makes it all bearable!

I do the same selective texting at 33... he'll respond enough for you to know he's alive and okay and when he needs more money. Oh and you might get the occasional drunk text... be prepared to just delete those without asking questions!

Another vacation? I'm sooo jealous! But good for you - life is too short not to enjoy! Glad you got the day off too! It was much needed and I agree - I weighed more after the weekend than I had before too but I am still down so much overall that I feel great! Keep trying at the shred video - I am sure you will do great!

I'm thinking of ordering Jillian's shred, however I don't know where I can find 30 days to devote to it! Or if I can do it, even though I work out regularly.

Good luck next time you start, and I don't blame you one bit for grabbing a break away where you can, as you say, life IS too short :)
