Yesterday was a day full of accomplishments for me....

First of all, I finally got our 2008 taxes complete so that I could fill out the financial aid papers for That Kid's college this coming fall. Then early (for me) this morning I filled out the financial aid information for the college he is attending. Next on the list is filling out all the supplemental forms for even more financial aid. We are seeking everything we can since business has been so slow for dh the past 6 months and we are wondering how we will be able to pay for this extra expense.

Secondly, I finished filling out the high school transcript for That Kid and got it printed, signed and in an envelope with postage to mail. I didn't get it in the mail before they came at 9:30 a.m. this morning so I will need to run it by the post office later today. I also got the information compiled for the Residence Life and got that ready to mail, too. It looks like everything is coming together. Registration and Orientation for DBU is next Thursday and Friday so it's all working out! I'm kind of nervous and kind of excited!! How can my baby be ready for college already??

Next on my list of accomplishments -- I decided that I really need to watch my food intake and to increase the fruits and veggies. I managed to eat 4 servings of fruit yesterday! I am really bad about "good intentions", but never following through with the fruits and veggies. It seems there are always other things that I want to eat, ya know?? We are out of veggies, so that will have to wait till I get to the grocery store.

Finally, I did Day 5 of Level 3 on my 30 Day Shred DVD! That means that I only have 5 more days till I am done with the 30 Day Shred AGAIN!! I feel like I am doing really well with it, and I have managed to do some of the reps with Natalie although I am still struggling with some of the moves, even following Anita. I still can't do a full on sit-up!!! So I am just doing crunches....maybe some day I'll get there!

I am ready to find another DVD to do...I'm getting a bit bored with this and feel like I am ready for another challenge...I hope the Sisters has an idea of something different to do....It is so much easier to do if I know other ladies are going through the same pain as I am!! I'm sure you know what I mean!!

I am ready to start writing my post for That Kid's graduation tribute, but every time I start thinking about it I get all weepy, so I'm just going to have to suck it up and cry and write at the same time!! That will truly be a major accomplishment!! Look for it over the weekend...maybe I'll be able to get it done since I have lots of time while waiting for That Other Kid during hockey practice.

Ugghh. The paperwork. I remember that from when I was going to college. Is DBU Dallas Baptist University? That's the only school I find when I google those initials. This is such an exciting yet nerve-wracking time for you and That Kid. Congrats on reaching that point!

Ann, just this week I've started doing the C25K program. And I'm stretching week one over two weeks because my husband is going to be gone and I think I'm going to be sporadic over the next week or so. If you're looking for something other than the shred to do, and can manage the time outside (ie. can work around having a 5 year old with you!) you can join me. I won't be moving on to week two until the week of the 15th, so if you're interested, we can work together.

Good for you for getting that fruit in!! That's awesome!

I don't really like Jillian so I bought the Biggest Loser Boot Camp with Bob Harper as the leader. I liked it a lot more and while each workout is longer, it's the same sort of progression type of system.

Great job on all your accomplishments. It feels so good to get things out of the way, doesn't it?
Not to add to your load, but I tagged you!
