Have you ever been so excited about something that nothing else in life can faze you? So eager am I to get out of the country that I’ve essentially been floating on a cloud these past few days, trying to tie up as many loose ends as I can but ultimately thinking about my great escape to the Emerald Isle (just six days away!). Four deadlines to meet in one day? What should I wear when the weather gets windy? Oh, I have another online dating profile to write? I wonder if we should take our rental car to Connemara or if we should book a tour?
In other extremely exciting news, sweet little Monkey was adopted last weekend! Sadly, I don’t know much about the new family who adopted him (I was hoping to have some sort of contact information so I can keep up to date with them and see how he was settling in) but I’m told they are good, sweet people and that they have a young son about six or so who fell in love with Monkey immediately (and really, how could you not??). That’s one part about fostering that’s sometimes difficult to bear: it can take an emotional toll to say goodbye to a four-legged friend you have welcomed into your home. In the end, however, it’s the happy ending we all wanted for Monkey and it’s the one he desperately deserves to have.
In yet other awesome news (I’m just full of it today!) my very sweet and awesome blogger friend Krysten of Why Girls are Weird recently announced her engagement! Please stop by and tell her congratulations! Plus, you have to read the engagement story. If you’re a sucker for a good love story, then I know you’ll love this one.
Oh! And I’m not getting paid to say this, but I recently discovered an app called My Fitness Pal which helps track/count calories and fitness activity (granted, it’s not entirely accurate, but it’s a great starting point). I’ve lost 5 lbs so far! I don’t want to go crazy, but I have uhm, “filled in” a bit and this is a great way to get back on track and start feeling better about myself/body yet again. Yay to a healthy new start!
What’s new in your world, party people??
