As the snow blows it's way towards Kansas City I am at work, anticipating that tomorrow I will get the day off.  We'll see.  JF went grocery shopping and I have some Trader Joe's treats so I think we will survive.  Random fact:  I don't worry about weather anymore.  Funny how being in cognitive behavioral therapy for 2 1/2 years helps SO much!

As I scrolled through the blogs I follow I read Dani's Currently post and was inspired!

So, here is me, on February 20, 2013

I am watching Parenthood on NetFlix.  Finally catching up with the rest of the world.  I am in the middle of season 2.  It's a fun show to watch and the Aspbergers aspect of the show is interesting to me.  Sometimes I feel like the show gets it right, other times not.  Watching also makes me really miss Brothers and Sisters.  I know Parenthood has a mighty following and I don't want to piss anyone off, but it's sort of like Wal-Mart vs. Target, with Brothers and Sisters being Target.  In my humble opinion.

Thinking about...
How I have 10 pounds to lose.  I have been lazy lately.  Not so much with working out...I work out at least 5 days a week.  But I have been lazy with what I am eating.  Not enough raw foods and too many sweets.  Too many bad carbs.  Blerg.  I chalk it up to having bad willpower.  But I don't have bad willpower overall.  I mean...I have the power to run 6 miles, do 90 minutes of hot yoga, a 30 day burpee challenge.  I stay up late to clean my house or am away from home for 8 hours at a stretch to run errands.  I have amazing willpower with those things so now I just need to channel that into not eating cookies.  And pizza.  And Chinese food.  Wish me luck and send pointers this way :)

Absolutely nothing.  I am maybe 10 pages into "A Farewell To Arms" but started it, umm, 3 weeks ago.  Thanks to my iPhone all I do in my free time is Instagram, play around with Vine, play around with MyFitnessPal and read blogs.  I miss reading actual books but can't seem to settle down and read.

Looking forward to...
Making Puppy Chow for Leevs!  I (finally) bought Sunflower butter today and I am going to make it for him.  He has never had it because of his nut allergy so this is going to be a big treat.  He was with me when I bought the sun butter and asked "What if it accidentally has nuts in it?"  I think because it looks so much like peanut butter.  I think once he tastes the puppy chow he won't be scared anymore!

Making me happy...
All of my great family and friends!  It was so nice to see my family in St. Louis over the weekend and receive some really thoughtful and caring birthday gifts.  Hearing from different friends and seeing who is planning on coming to my birthday party is heartwarming, too.
