Updates and other randomness

But first off, a rant. HowTF do Columbus weathermen get away with telling us to expect 3-5 inches of snow on Saturday, only to see us get some freezing rain and a dusting of snow? I mean, I've learned to not put much stock in weather reports, but they really screwed the pooch on this one. Those bastids got my hopes up for NOTHING!

However, it was butt-ass fucking cold this weekend, so I actually got a lot of little stuff done around the house-unpacking random boxes and finding homes for the stuff that was in them (picture frames, candles, etc.), laundry, blah blah blah. Plus, I got some stuff put in the stand alone bar counter we picked up from Melissa's neighbors Mike and Rebecca when they moved to Chicago, along with a coffee table and fire pit (pictures to come, eventually). Hooray for being productive!

Today begins Week 2 of the back-on-the-diet bandwagon. It helps that I'm taking part in two "Biggest Loser" contests-one at work, and one with a Columbus-based women's message board that I frequent. Not so much because I have a lot of weight to lose (I'm only about 10 lbs from my goal weight), but because I need to be held accountable...and these contests will hopefully help keep me accountable for what I'm eating and how much I'm working out. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNDDDDD I officially signed up for the Flying Pig 1/2 Marathon (the first Sunday in May, in Cinci), so I need to make more of an effort to eat healthier. I'm trying to remember to log what I'm eating on Sparkpeople, but this tends to go to crap once I eat something that I KNOW isn't going to be listed (like the fries, horseradish sauce, and bites of roast beef dip sandwich I just mooched from Jason :P). Still, I'm working on it.

J's new job is going well. He's DEFINITELY far happier than he'd been at the last place he worked at for the last couple of years, AND he doesn't have to work until 2am EVER.AGAIN. This makes us both infinitely happy.

You wanna know what else makes us infinitely happy? The 24 premiere is on tonight...finally! Yee-ha!
