I've read post after post, tweet after tweet about FitBloggin...and now I am jealous. I want to go..and I'm too late.
So, I've decided, that as a reward for getting down to my goal weight....which I will most definitely do by next year's conference...then I'm treating myself to a trip to FitBloggin' 2012!
That is, of course, that I get a job...and that school is out in time for me to attend...which it will be if there aren't 2 weeks of snow days to make up. Fingers crossed.
In other news... unless you've been living in a hole the past 24 hours, you'll know that Joplin, MO was hit with a nasty tornado. Joplin is about an hour from me - I have a friend that lives there. The devastation is just awful. Luckily, his house was untouched, but the town is in complete disarray. It's just so sad, and so scary.
We've been under tornado warnings and severe thunderstorm warnings since yesterday. The storms are still raging right now, as I type this. Last night, we received small hail and 50mph winds. Tonight is supposed to be just as bad - if not worse. I'm not sure what is going on with this weather - but I don't like it one bit.
Last year, I was begging my mom to get the pool up and running because it was so dang hot. Today, it's May 23rd and the weather hit maybe 70 degrees today. There's been so much rain, that I have my own lake in my back yard. The roads are flooding, the winds are causing damage all around me, and I'm must ready to see the sunshine... for more than 1 day.
If you remember, I was supposed to be leaving for New Orleans in the morning. Now, I can finally say that I'm glad that trip was cancelled. Not only are they getting hit with flooding - but I would have been completely miserable and scared to death knowing that this kind of weather was taking place while I was hundreds of miles away. Goes back to my "everything happens for a reason" statement...doesn't it?
OK, I think I'm going to go and relax for a while...while I still have power...and hope that the bad weather stays away.
Till next time. ;)
