So much has happened

Oh, did I say I was going to bed? What I meant was that I was going to make a quick list of all the many millions of things that have happened and that I haven't blogged about:
  • TR (that's my husband) and I joined a gym, but our membership doesn't start till December 1. We want to make sure we're doing the right thing. Just kidding. It's brand new and is opening down the road from our house.
  • I started my job. I love it, but I have never seen so much craziness in a workplace in all my life.
  • I started another new job. So far I'm just doing the training to teach LSAT Prep courses and that is why I am in Dallas. But I have to retake the LSAT (not for official test purposes) and fax in my results on Monday and then start teaching actual classes on Saturday, August 7th. Ugh. I mean, good, but...ugh.
  • TR decided to do a sprint triathlon, registered, and two weeks later did one. Please check out how adorable he is:
  • TR and I had our first night apart since we were married. I cried. It's true.
  • My sweet, sweet parents came to visit us for a day while driving through on their way to Oklahoma and North Carolina (yes, I know, it's not on the way) and bought us a ton of food and other fun things and also brought us all our wedding presents that we couldn't bring on the plane.
  • Several friends have also come to visit: LJ, MT, and TC to name a few.
  • I have become dead to the world to several other friends.
  • TR and I have gone without sugar for 3 1/2 weeks (almost a fate worse than death, but I will admit that being without him for 2 days is far worse).
  • I stayed up till 2:20 for the first time in months.
  • I got to my lowest weight since we've been married, which is only 2 pounds more than my lowest weight ever as an adult.
  • I was asked to teach a religious scripture study class for high school students from 6:30-7:20 every morning during the school year. I accepted. Cuh-cuh-cuh-razy! (And yet totally right)
  • I fired someone at work for insubordination.
  • I told her supervisor to talk to her and tell her I was willing to not process the termination paperwork if she would come in and talk with me and not fight with me.
  • I laid the smack down at work because I got sick of the fakeness and people challenging everything I said not because they don't agree that it's right but because they're combative and think they can do whatever they want.
  • I got a call from my boss in LA at 9 p.m. one evening to ask if I had said the f-word at work and to say that her boss, the owner of our 5000 person company, had called her to say he was concerned about me because he heard I said the f-word. What the?! (And by, "What the?!" I mean, "What the heck?!" because I ain't nevah be sayin' the f-word...well, at least not for a long, long time and definitely not at work.)
  • I realized one night in complete awe and total sincerity that I had somehow managed to marry the most wonderful man on the planet (yeah, yeah, if you want you can pretend that either you or your husband/dad/brother fills that position, but I know the truth).
  • TR and I (he did the clicking) bought him a Mac!!!! It should get to our house two days from now.
  • TR and I went and bought me a racing swim suit, goggles, and a swim cap...which I dutifully brought with me to Dallas and which I still have yet to use...unless you count the time I changed into the suit on the way home from that shopping excursion while I was driving my car and TR was driving his (we were coming from our respective work places) and then I also put on the goggles so that when we arrived home, I could hop out of the car looking like an absolute freak.
Okay, speaking of freaks, I need to get to bed. I have to be up by 7 in order to get ready, get packed, check out of my hotel, and get to church on time before my last 3 1/2 hours of training on LSAT Preparedness.

Ok, it's too late for me to be commenting on blogs!! :) We just watched a lightening storm with the kids and fed the neighborhood cat Cold Stone. I can't believe you aren't eating sugar. I'd die. really....and you will LOVE your Mac. We love love love our mac.....I should go to bed now. Hmm, maybe I'll go write a long blog...just kidding, I really will go to bed. Luv u
