Softball and superheroes, oh my.

I just sewed a hole in my winter coat. It took me all of 10 minutes, but the hole has been there for 3 years. The coat has been sitting on the floor next to the door, and my cats have been sleeping on it. Now I can wash it and wear it again. Of course, it is 86 degrees out...

What else is new...?

I mentioned in my last post that things, they are a-changin' on the professional front. I have started doing some administrative work remotely for an executive coach, which has been an interesting change. I have not done much yet, but I look forward to learning a lot. Also, and this is pretty huge, my job at the American Cancer Society will be changing in the next month or so. They are eliminating my current position, so I applied for several in the Cincinnati office. I have had a preliminary phone interview for 8 of the positions, and today I had a second interview for one of them. This position is several steps above the one I'm in right now, but I am confident I can be an asset. We'll see what's what over the next week.

Still doing the boot camp. Still loving the boot camp. Seriously, my friends, I am feeling so much cleaner and healthier. I quit pop cold turkey on Friday. I am missing it, especially when I drive, which kind of cracks me up, as my mom always said that was when she wanted to smoke the most. I'm always reaching for snacks and drinks while I'm driving...so I keep an enormous bottle of water and drink from it constantly. Which means that, by the time I get to work, I have to pee like a racehorse. But I haven't had a Pepsi...

So much softball.
All of a sudden, this week, practices and games galore.  She is enjoying it, though.  The girls on her team are great, and they have a great time together.  So much evidence to support the benefits of team sports on a young girl - she is definitely a more confident girl than I ever was.

Went to see the new X-Men movie yesterday - the most aesthetically pleasing movie I've seen in awhile. 
Be still my heart.  And there was this one scene...with Hugh Jackman...sigh.

Ooh, my left eye is all swollen today.  I woke up this way.  Kind of gross, but not seepy, so that's good.  The doctor says it's just allergies, but it was a weird way to wake up.
Okey doke, 4:30 comes early, so I have to get to bed.  You all take care, kisses...

What happens when you leave your kids home with your camera...

One of our many snow days. I went to work, the Girl grabbed my camera. This is a big "corners of my home" post.

In other news, I'm still doing boot camp 4 days a week, and enjoying it. My son turned 17 (yikes) last week. I'm in the midst of yet another career flux (I'll update another day.) Laundry needs to be done and I'm reading a lot (not news.) I hope you all have been enjoying your spring...
