life seen thru the eyes of a neurotic 20 something gal in search of something, nothing, and everything....but not all at once...I think.

recharging the batteries

there is indeed, nothing quite as sweet as vacation. Sleeping in late and laying around all day without regard to emails and conference calls and annoying snafoos in the work day. I am loving it...that is until the second day of vacation when I received an email on my blackberry stating my work box was shut down due to overflow. Guess the out of office assistant that says "Gone fishin'" doesn't mean crap to anyone.

What baffles me even more is that my phone has not stopped ringing. I'll be sure to bug the hell out of you when your vacation comes so it can also be ruined. I mean, honestly, the establishment isn't going to fall apart without and me. I mean if it does...wow is all I will have to say.

When did people lose their damned manners! Could I just get a few days off for God's sakes?

Hell yes!!

I just bought my first pair of skinny jeans....and I dropped another size. I almost passed out in the fitting room. I haven't been this size in more than 5 years and in skinny jeans! That's like 2 sizes in regular jeans. I'm pretty delirious at this point.

I took a trustworthy friend who would not let me walk out, let alone buy, ridiculous jeans no matter how much I wanted them. She gave a thumbs up and that's hard to get.

All those sweaty nights huffing and puffing away on the treadmill and refusing french fries at every lunch meeting is finally paying off.

Awww....some day I really might get into a bikini. Ok, not tomorrow, and not looking like a Heidi freaking Klum. But someday.....
