Not enough time in a day

Sometimes I wish there was more time to a day. I always want to do more than I can. Each day I'm supposed to work 8 hours, get about 8 hours sleep (I wish), try to go to the gym for an hour, or do some form of exercise, write some of my novel, knit the baby blanket I'm making for a friend, read the book I'm enjoying, make diner in the morning before my late shift at work and fit in social activities with friends and family. Also you need to have some down time where you mindlessly stare at the television and enjoy your favorite shows.
I'm only human so I can't do this all in one day, but I wish there was a way.

TV Addiction

So I watch a lot of tv. More than most of my friends. And if they want to watch a show or have questions about a show, I'm their first thought.
I just had some funny text messages from my friend. The first was her asking me who is the mother on How I Met Your Mother. I told her we don't know yet, it's that annoying secret the show keeps hinting at us but never tells. She said she tried to google it but can't find it. I said they haven't actually cast her yet. But this is what we do know...
She has a yellow umbrella and goes to the college he lectures at, is Rachel Bilson's characters roommate and he meets her at a wedding where he will be best man. Oh and she has a yellow bus figurine and is not blonde.
The messages went on with more questions about the show till my friend realized she hadn't watched it consistently enough and wants to borrow my DVDs to catch up. I'm happy to oblige because I'm a huge advocate of spreading my obsessions around.
It kept me entertained for the last hour of my shift. And it's always fun to be the go to girl for questions like that. I have one too. Love sharing and questioning with my friend K.

Weirdness in the neighbourhood

Every night at the same time a dog goes speeding down my street and then a second later a buggy/scooter thing (the type the elderly use to get around) follows. it's very bizarre, but I guess the dog and owner have fun with it.

Blog Ressurection

I am resurrecting my blog. It's been a while, and it's about time.
Lots has happened, and also things are the same. Same job, same friends, same activities. I have done a couple more writing classes and focusing on writing/finishing this book this year. Fingers crossed.
I have been continuing with weight watchers and am now down 25 kilos. It's a bit thing to achieve. Still have a little more to go. I have become a mentor too. I've been given a 24 year old girl who is the same weight I was when I started. She's upset and had enough, and my leader hopes I can encourage her to do the right things and follow me. She's lovely and I hope I can help.
Looking at myself for a minute, I've been a bit complacent in my weight loss. Hovering at the same weight for the last few weeks, up and down and not going any further. I woke up this morning and said to myself... Self, you need to stop slacking off and get back into the strict routines you had before. Cos it's still easy to do, you just have to do it.
So today is a new day.
And I'll try to keep up with the blog... It will keep a certain someone happy who gas started a blog and I made her mention me, so I'll mention here too.... If only I remembered the name of her blog.
