too long!

i really am slacking, which isn’t cool because i’ve had some time available.

i’m down 50 lbs, which is pretty cool, especially since it’s mostly been from running. another reason to keep doing something i really don’t like to do! ok, avoiding corn syrup helps too, i suppose, and i’ve been trying to refrain from eating after suppertime. but if there’s a cupcake available, i’ll eat it. i really should go out today, but it’s 80+ degrees out and a little windy. not sure if i’ll make it. maybe a mile.

my new job starts on monday! i’m so anxious i could power something with my anxiety right now. i know it’ll be fine and that everything will be awesome once i know my way around everything, but that transition is a killer. not to mention i’ll be commuting and seeing nate not much at all until this house gets sold. i’m feeling sad already. but the kitties are coming with me, so that will help a little.

nikki’s bachelorette party is next weekend, then her wedding is the weekend after that. i’m taking the pics and really bouncing back and forth between putting up an external flash ubrella and just doing an on-camera flash/diffuser. the on-camera will allow more freedom and flexibility, but the umbrella will be a little bit better light (i don’t think by much, but it will be a little better). i think my p-shop skills might compensate for the lack of umbrella, so i’m leaning toward on-camera. that’s what i did at branden’s wedding and that turned out fine.

anyone have any ideas for a unique bach. party photo i can do with the bride and bridesmaids? i’ve seen the mug shot one floating around, but i’m thinking something more…literary… hmmm… thinking cap must come out.

tonight’s my last get-together with coworkers from merrill 🙁 it’ll be good but sad. i know i’ll miss some of them, and i’m hoping that when i’m up in the stc area i’ll get to see a couple. i saw newsleader coworkers last christmas, so there is hope 😉

bday came and went. nate and i went to ciatti’s and i made my AWESOME chocolate cake again. NOMG. i also cleaned the carpets and painted that weekend as well. this selling the house thing is a pain in my rear. i wish someone would fall in love with it already! st. joseph is buried in my backyard, so i’m hoping he does his stuff pretty soon!
