Working Girl

The good news? My work clothes all still fit:-)

While I haven't written much about it, I have held a pretty healthy weight since the girls were born (I am thinking about this now because I had to buy some new clothes because I gained a little weight after the girls were born, and now that I have had to break out all of my work clothes again...well, it comes back to me.) If you have been a long-time reader, you are aware of some of my weight issues. I haven't been paying too much attention to it for a while now, and have settled pretty comfortably at 103-105 pounds. That is just a little bigger than I have been for most of my adult life, but a really good spot for me, I think. I'll take it!

The bad news? I now have to go to work EVERY DAY!!!! It took me four days to get annoyed by this:-) The paycheck is most certainly not bad news, and I still like my job and the people I work with, but the all-day, every-day-ness of it is still a drag. I got used to my part-time-ish schedules of the last couple of years.

Now, on to some geeky-ness. Have any of you ever watched Game of Thrones? I got sucked into watching the whole first season last weekend at various times...and I am now officially dying for the second season (which I think is in April). Not terribly happy about some of the people they killed off already, but I suppose I can deal with that...I am also aware that I could read all of the books and find out what happens, but I kinda don't want to:-)

I am not quite at the point where I wanna go to a medieval festival, but it is getting there...

It took me a while after giving birth to realize the weight wasn't coming off. I wore my maternity clothes far too long and finally succumbed to buying new clothes. That sucked. Consider yourself lucky you're back into clothes that fit.

Haven't watched Game of Thrones, but hear it's excellent. Hold off on the Medieval festivals until the girls are old enough to understand how wacky their mom is. =)

I love love love Game of Thrones. I've watched the first season and then read the first book. Now I'll have to wait for the 2nd book til I've watched the 2nd season with my hubby.
Fun fact: Lots of the scenes with the Dothraki were filmed in Gozo, a small medit. island that belongs to Malta. When we were there one year ago, we, unknowingly, visited some of the places the shot the scenes, incredibly beautiful!
I'm excited for season 2 :)
