My A-Z's

This weekend was crazy. I am so zapped  I skipped some Zumba classes last week and I really didn't anticipate how much it was gonna derail me-- this morning's class was all kinds of rough.  We will be moving in a month and I spent the whole weekend getting that process ramped up.   I am very determined to stay on track with my Band during this move. This time last year we moved and I got highly distracted.  Fortunately I didn't gain, but my losses were negligible and it took a toll on my head.  It took me almost six months to get back on track and I refuse to have to fight that fight again.  

I have been reading and catching up on many of your blogs and they have been provoking my thoughts.  I am working on some longer, more soul searchy posts but right now all I have is my A-Z's. I have been awake since 4:00am and I can barely hold my eyes open gonna try to catch some Zzzzz's  with high hopes of hitting my evening Zumba class.

A-Z about me!

B. Bed size - King- it used to because we were both so large we needed all the space we could get, but now I realize I just want my space.  
C. Chore you dislike - It takes all my willpower to unload the dishwasher.
D. Dogs - Everett, he is the last of my pack of 4 Basset Hounds.  He has more personality than some people.

O. Overnight hospital stays - Never been overnight, the Band was a in at 6a out by 6p kinda thing
P. Pet peeves (aka things I hate) - When people just don't think about how their behavior effects others- when they act like they are the only people on the planet.   Oh, and when people randomly start singing in public places.  

Q.Quote from a movie -  Eight hundred leaf-tables and no chairs? You can't sell leaf-tables and no chairs. Chairs, you got a dinette set. No chairs, you got dick! -Raising Arizona
