Random (as usual)

Today has been a most unproductive day. It's not that I haven't gotten anything done, it's just that I have merely scratched the surface of my to-do list, which being Monday, includes all of my cleaning. I have not done any of my cleaning. Blast! This sets me back for the whole week unless I do some crazy midnight scrambling to catch up. (Not likely) It's not like I have a very busy life, but this week I do have several things to do, not least of which is pursue Lola's Legacy. (The name I am giving to this project for now, thanks to Hannah.)
Update on Lola's Legacy: I got an email back from the woman at Bazzill asking for my address so she could send said boxes to me. Plural. That should be very fun mail to receive, and I will definitely post about it. I am still waiting to see is American Crafts in sending something or if they were just taunting me by asking for my address. I have been officially turned down by Close to My Heart, Provo Craft, and Jo Anns. I think that's it...And the latest news: Chatterbox is going to donate 5 albums and some embellishments! It's a start anyway- I don't know if I'm receiving any more albums yet, so it's a start. I'm so excited about the response I am getting from this. I will continue to update on it. Please know that if you're reading this, I fully expect to see you at the crop in June. I'm tentatively thinking Saturday June 17th. Consider this your Save the Date card.
Fun things from today:
* I went to the gym, met with the personal trainer who used calipers on me. It could have been worse. I think he gave me a back-handed compliment when he said: "Your skin is really elastic. I usually have to pull really hard to get some skin." Thanks, I think. No, on second thought, I think not.
* Possibly the calipers weren't so bad because I was still on a high from my weigh-in this morning which resulted in me losing 2 pounds! I was thrilled, but not entirely surprised since I worked hard last week.
* When I returned from the gym Bridget was leaving me a gift! I would have taken a picture to post, but my camera batteries are dead. (I really have to get a back-up set!) She gave me a thank you card, and some bottled water and Crystal Light on the go packs. I'm excited to try them out- I love Crystal Light!
* Bella is wearing some pedal-pushers she wore last September. They are size 3-6 months, and are still very big in the waist. She's got a good 2 inches to grow into them, and yes, she will be 1 year old in less than 3 weeks.
That's all for today!

Yeah for going to the gym...maybe I'm dumb, but what are calipers?

I love the back-handed compliment, I had no idea your skin was so elastic. Did you get the caliper treatment on purpose or did you get shnockered into it? I want nothing to do with calipers so I would have run for the hills if someone even mentioned them to me (of course, I'd be winded and out of breath by the time I reached the hills, but still).

That's exciting news about Bazzill. I've met Frani Garcia before and she's the cutes lady in the world! She's a good one to have on your side! I hope you get more donations. It looks like the bog companies aren't very philanthropic, but the small ones seem out to do some good. I'd keep after them!

Because of you. . . I did pilates again today (four times last week!). Thankfully, no calipers were involved.

I'm laughing so hard from Jill's comment about running to the hills, I can hardly type! I too want nothing to do with calipers. I can see that there's way too much fat there, I don't need anyone pinching it to verify... I'm impressed with your exercise habits of late. I'm way excited about the donations and can't wait to see what they send you. Maybe you should just clean a tiny bit every day this week, then you won't feel so behind.

Wow, great news all around! So glad to see that Lola's Legacy is getting off to a good start (: And the gym success - that's definitely awesome. Ugh, I hate the calipers.

Congratulations on the weight loss, the gym, the donations, you are quite the inspiration. I tend to only think things but not do them. I also loved Jill's comment.
