Where Have I Been?

Posted By on December 13, 2010

Well, that was not an intentional blogging hiatus. In fact, I really wanted to post. But last week started off with a trip to Pittsburgh for work and then I never really recovered and basically slept the rest of the week as much as I could.

Some people probably think they are missing out on SO! MUCH! when I go a week without posting. Those people would be wrong. Here is just a sampling of what I have been up to:

  • I almost missed my flight to Pittsburgh last Monday. The security line resembled this, something I’ve NEVER seen at Midway airport.

  • This was before 7 AM, mind you. And this was just the line for the TSA person to check your ID. You still had another line to wait in to get through security.
  • I made it, barely, by running. In heels. Because of course my gate wasn’t like B3, it had to be B19 all the way at the end of the terminal. I only ran because I was PAGED! They paged me throughout the airport! “Pittsburgh passenger Kristin Johnson!” I wasn’t going to miss that flight, so I ran.
  • And then it took me the entire hour flight to recover from being winded from my 1/4 mile jog through the airport.
  • I need to go to start going to the gym again.
  • Speaking of, I re-joined Weight Watchers. For the 17th time in the last six years. BUT! It’s a new program! And I can’t guesstimate anymore since everything is new! So this should help!
  • Except I drank my week’s worth of points in beer and shots on Sunday while out watching football.
  • This is why I’m fat.
  • Other things I’ve been up to since I last posted? Not cleaning, not doing laundry and not moving from the couch.
  • Oh! And I’ve started watching True Blood. And I am now hooked. And debating upping my Netflix account so I get more than one DVD at a time.
  • I’m also reading the books. Both the show and the books are equally good.  And if you tweet about True Blood, fake True Blood characters will respond to you.

  • I have also spent an insane amount of time scraping ice off my car windows. I don’t even want to talk about how it isn’t even technically winter yet.

And now I’m off to bed. Before I get hungry and eat all my points for tomorrow on string cheese.

    Amanda was telling me about the new WW program last night and she thought it was neat. I always let her join and then tell me the tips. 😉

    I may have to cave and finally watch True Blood. 🙂

    I’m so glad you’re loving the Sookie books! That was a super fun series, and because it’s a pretty LONG series, I loved having book after book after book to read. (If I’m remembering correctly books 2, 4, 5 and 9 were my favorites…)

    And ERIC. Eric on True Blood was pretty perfectly cast.

    Hey, just a non-related comment (well, I read your post and enjoyed it, as usual :)) because of BACON. I just came across this post about how bacon apparently is all the rage now (and you were a fan before it got hyped, I’d say ;)): http://www.moxiefabworld.com/2010/12/moxie-talk-go-to-gal-teri-anderson-is.html
    So anyhow, this above post is about how trendy bacon seems to be right now and I thought you might like it 🙂
    Best wishes from Germany!

  8. I have to say that I really hate the new WW points system. The end.

    I’m pretty sure I’ve tried ww about 4 times since they’ve been online, and I fail every time. Maybe I will try again in combo with my running in the new year.

    Scraping ice off windows sounds annoying

    True Blood is awesome, but I think I haven’t seen it since the first 2 seasons. Maybe I should add it to netflix.

  10. I’m a little weary of the “new” Weight Watchers system. I’m not sure if the new system is truly better or if it’s a marketing scheme to get more members who complained about not having fruit.

    It’s so much easier being fat. My decisions are a lot less complicated.
