Friday was GREAT...first, I got to drive to school in my adorable new car. Then a student gave me the cutest gift, even though I had said no gifts because I'd rather kids spent their money on our Toys for Tots campaign. I received a package from Kim, my yearbook representative--who knows about my surgery and sent cashews. Yum...I can eat them AND they provide some protein!!
Then we had lunch as a faculty--about ten of us--at El Tapatio, which was fun. But the best part of the day was the unexpected, but hoped for, bonus check waiting for me at the end of the day! Given that I put money down on the car, I had pretty much decided that the trip to NY would be rather subdued because it was all I could afford. The bonus check changed that--YAY! I definitely have to stop making excuses and get some slacks for work--I cannot wear those black jeans anymore--they are huge!
And another thing--this morning, I stood outside my car and had someone take a pic. I've never been one for full-length pics and here I was, asking someone to take one!
I bought two different types of protein bars at Sam's Club--saving quite a lot of money. Finally, I heard from "Buddy". It put a smile on my face--I guess that's a sign!
