I'm a Bad Blogger

I think I've pretty much come to terms with the fact that I am just not a very good blogger.  Maybe my life is just too boring to warrant frequent posts.

I've been weighing in every other day.  I stalled out for about a week after I hit 100 lost, but I've finally lost another 2/3 lbs.  I'm going through clothes sizes so quickly that I'm having a hard time keeping up.  I've been wearing a belt so that I'm not spending all kinds of money on new clothes, but I HATE wearing a belt.  They just aren't comfortable.  Pretty soon I'll need to do a purge of my closet, so I'm not tempted to wear clothes that just do not look flattering on me anymore.

I started my class last week.  I can't remember if I've blogged about it yet or not.  Several months ago I decided that if I hadn't had any luck finding a job closer to home by August, that I was going to enroll in a Phlebotomy course.  When I started college right out of high school, I wanted to go in to the medical field.  Initially, it was nursing, but it morphed in to medical technology or microbiology.  4 years of college at that age just didn't seem to be in the cards for me, so I never finished.  Learning Phlebotomy should get my foot in the door somewhere and lead to being able to work in a lab, which is what I've always wanted to do.  It's Mondays and Thursdays from 6:30 to 9:30, and the location is an hour away from both work, and home.  It ends in December, at which time I'll take a test to be nationally certified.  There always seem to be openings for Phlebotomists, so I don't think I will have any trouble finding a job closer to home.  I'm really enjoying it so far.

Things at my store have been going pretty well, participation and event-wise.  We're still in limbo with the former owner and the new owner. The former owner still lives on the 2nd floor, and has managed to get continuances on his eviction hearings.  In the meantime the new owner doesn't seem to want to talk about a lease, or repairs, or our future there, or anything at all.  It's very stressful and frustrating, so I do my best to not dwell on it.  Whatever will be, will be.

Life just keeps on trucking along.


  1. Congrats on losing so much weight! That is a tremendous accomplishment and you must be very proud.

    Happy ICLW :)

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    Great job with the weight loss!

    I used to be a phlebotomist, and I loved it. I worked on mobile blood donor drives. So much fun! I hope you enjoy it too.

    And I think you're a just fine blogger!
