The week is marching by and my weekend starts now.

Wow, what a first week in 2010. On one hand, I don't remember what I did or didn't do; on the other hand I feel like I have been going...going....going. We went back to our "normal" routine which includes school for the boys, work for DH and I; and the hockey practices Monday-Wednesday. I have been doing just "ok" with some of my goals...I have been ingesting less sugar (haven't totally omitted sugar gum or a little candy yet) and doing my situps/pushups/weights, which has been a focus of mine this week. Little baby steps to change a life style is my motto.

At work, which is something I don't talk about much, I have been getting ready for my boss to visit next week. Strange as it sounds my boss is located in our Duxford England office. We basically communicate by primarily email. I am looking forward to her visit as we are getting ready to start some very fun and exciting projects. In fact, today I was ask to present information about our Website redesign project to our upper manager via a conference call...and I was nervous. Ten years ago in a previous job, which was at a party store company, I was in public relations/marketing/advertising and my main responsibilty was the PR part of it...I would fly to different states where we had stores and get on local tv talk shows and talked about "how to plan parties", or "how to uniquely wrap Christmas presents", or showed the trendy Halloween costumes. You would think that talking to a speaker phone wouldn't be nerve wracking for someone who use to do tv talkshows...but my stomache was tied up in knots. But it was fun and I think I did a good job - so I feel good and honored that they would let me do something like this.

So, here we are at Thursday...I will be leaving in a few minutes to pick up the boys from school and we are heading to the eye dr. Time for me to get a check up and there is a need for Robert to get checked out as a note from school said that he doesn't see very well.

Until next time, remember...
Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch often! Lisa

I know what you mean about this week. My husband and I were just talking about that same thing this morning. I have been going, going, going...but not sure where I've been. LOL Hopefully next week will settle down into a good routine. :)

I am glad your conference call worked out well!
