The World Needs More Holiday Weekends

I just love holiday weekends. I worked a little on Sunday to help out a colleague, but we were given the day off on Monday, which made it more than worthwhile. I made dinner for a friend on Saturday and he helped us hang a new ceiling fan. Sunday we watched Superman Returns. Monday we went swimming at a friend’s and watched a very interesting movie called The Secret – I found it very interesting as it relates to several books I’ve been reading lately (The Power of Intention, Conversations With God). Tuesday we enjoyed a nap and fireworks in the evening at the country club. Yesterday was a tough day to get through – I was so tired. I'm still tired today in fact. I've been reading blogs, but I'm too tired to comment.

Here's our new ceiling fan. It looks really nice in our living room.



Diet is still ON and going great. I ate sashimi today for the first time ever. I love sushi rolls, but don’t care for raw fish. Unfortunately, sushi rolls definitely aren’t on my diet, but what could be healthier than fresh tuna, salmon and snapper? I decided to change my dislike of all things raw. I can’t believe I choked it down. I really don’t get what the big deal is about sashimi. Why does everyone get so excited over it? Sure the tuna is a beautiful color, but it’s just raw???!!! I'm kind of determined to make myself love it. I'll let you know how that turns out. So far, it's not looking too good.

I've only had sushi, and preferred the california roll, LOL! About as plain as they come. :)

Thanks for the comments on my blog! But I am wondering now about which sizes to order. I've never ordered clothes from them but since you have I'm going to ask what you think- I am apprx 5'8" & usually around 135-140lbs. I'm wearing about a sz6 on avg. I could go from a 4-8 depending on the store, but generally it's around sz6. The dresses I'm looked at are all in sz's XS, S, M, & L. Going by the size chart, it says I'd be a S, but when I've bought underwear there I've always preferred a L (well I guess that's with the cotton ones). I ordered a string bikini in size M and it fits perfect. I have NO IDEA what sizes to order now. Any suggestions?!!! I've left you a book here, sorry!! LMAO! I was going to order tonight or tomorrow, then I saw your comment. :) I'm going to hold off for a little bit. Thank you so much for your help!

Woah!!! LOVE THE CEILING FAN!!! That is awesome! It's different, and I like it!

I'm with you. I hate raw fish. I'm not really a fish person anyway. But I know what you mean, it stinks, because it is sooo good for you!

Keep going strong woman!

That is the coolest ceiling fan I've ever seen! I love it!

Sushi - not this cowboy. I mean, according to my friends who eat the stuff, California rolls don't count. I can eat the tuna but the rest - I just don't get it. And the price you have to pay just doesn't equate for me. Give me a good old rare porterhouse!

So where do we sign up for the 3 day work week? I'm lovin' this week.

Have a great weekend, Rach!

That's a beautiful plate of raw fish! Is that actually what you ate?

I love fish raw if there's rice and seaweed and stuff to dip it in, but the texture by itself bothers me. Like you, I keep telling myself I will love it, so I keep trying it. I do the same thing with bananas.

Love the fan.

OMG. Love your new ceiling fan! That's awesome!

And sushi - I love it. I didn't used to - it's definitely an acquired taste, I think.

Yum Yum Yum. The only thing I won't eat is cooked carrots and stale women.

Sounds like you're on target with the workouts. Thanks for sharing...Dub
