Here you go, Kimmy!

Okay it has been about a month and a half since I've updated...just been super busy with life and work and all of that.

My knee is still diseased, I am supposed to make an appointment to have surgery, but just not sure where I will fit it in. Maybe in August before Eric starts football. It will be about a six week recovery, and I don't want to stop the running. This was supposed to be my year for the fantastical runningness.

I've lost 30 pounds. However, I had some pictures taken at work and that added 10 lbs. I am going to be losing more. So that is another reason I am having a hard time deciding on the surgery. Don't want to be laid up! I will gain it all back!

Work is going okay. Still a little unsure. Trying to get a lot of square pegs into round hole, coming up with all kinds of distractions and my old boss is causing me problems (let's just NOT got there, he's a dick).

My brother's wife, Lisa should be giving birth any second now. I'll let you know what happens! (It is a boy, Xander. Not sure of the middle name yet). We are all very excited, the sisters and I are taking bets on due date, time and poundage.

No Bloomsday run (the 7.5 mile one in Spokane). Just kind of got off track, my Grandma Koole died, a friend's ex died (their daughter is taking it very hard), lots of death and life changes going on.

Anyway, there you go. I promise I won't go 42 days between posts again!

I'm so so sorry I've not been keeping up with this blog!!!

Lots to talk about, however, because my life is just super-busy.

Got an appointment for the tumor in my knee, May 1st, so everyone wish me luck with that.

Lost a total of 24 pounds so far since January. See, it can be done after having children! I look great, if I do say so myself. My secret? Exercise and eat less. It works! I am running 3-4 miles a day now, and eating smaller portions. Getting the weight off has really helped my running performance, doesn't seem like such a chore.

And I'm buying smaller clothes!

Job transition still a little weird. My old boss is having separation anxiety. Had a small hissy fit yesterday when I had to leave the office for the day for the new job. I told him he would be fine and left. He was just panicking. We will have someone to fill my spot soon, she has gone in for the drug test, so everyone cross your fingers that she isn't a closet druggie.

Getting new contacts for the new job, went out yesterday with the other sales person on some calls, had lunch on the company, this is the life, I tell you!

Eric is going to Virginia tomorrow for a constitution history class thing, have to drop him at the airport in Portland at 6am. That means we leave at 5, which means I have to get up at 4, because I will be going to work after, so have to do the full-get-ready-thing.

Anyway, I promise when things get back to normal, I'll start posting regularly again!

Account Executive

I found out today that my new title with the company is...


So cool. I love it. I'm an executive. I'm so damn fancy now, I just don't know what to do.

Had my first sales meeting with the director and other sales executive.

My office situation, however, is not so good. Not really happy with where they will be placing me. But I guess I will live with it. I'm getting a new phone number and my business cards, letter head, notepads, thank you notes, etc. are all getting printed up very soon.

Also got my first account assignment today, really excited about that. Can't wait to start getting the commissions from those people.

Where Have I Been?

You're probably all wondering what I've been up to. I haven't posted anything in almost 2 weeks. Well, I've been super-busy trying to get this new job lined up, getting the old job squared away, shopping for new work clothes and looking for new cars!!

I'm looking at either a Chrysler Pacifica or a Mercury Milan. I think that although I love the Pacifica, I really can only afford a used one, and the Milan I like has all the stuff I want but for the same price, but new. It's midsize and so also doesn't use up as much gas.

Anyway, sorry to disappoint. I was too busy this weekend to see any movies, so there was no Marvelous Movie Monday.

I have my first sales meeting tomorrow, so I will let you all know how that turns out.

I'm The Queen Of The World!!!!

I got the job!

Thursday, March 09, 2006


I've been told by an unofficial source that *the job* is mine.

My boss this morning also was giving me some ideas for things that I could do "if I get the job."

They are killing me over here! I wish they would just say it.

I've been wanting this for a long time. If I have to be away from my kids every day (which is just sooo wrong from a mother's standpoint - not to mention a three year old's), I might as well be making some $bank$!

Early Morning Run!

Darby has an appointment with her endocrinologist today, so Eric took the day off, and that meant I could get up early and go running since I didn't have to help him get the kids ready like a normal morning.

It felt really good this morning, not such a drag. Morning runs are always better. I'm starting to feel like I'm back!

Plus, as of today, I've now lost 14 pounds since January.

Wahooo!!! Oh yeah, baby, I'M BACK!!!

Eric and the girls will pick me up at work this morning before Darby's appointment and I should be back at work before lunch.
