Monday Mayhem – Yay!

Posted on Feb 18, 2013 by Margaret Ethridge   4 Comments | Posted in Blog

Days! I see my girls in just a few days!

M&G

Yes, I know I crowed about this the last time, but it’s been a year. Yes, an entire year has passed since I’ve seen some of these ladies. I don’t know how I survived it. I’m so excited I may bust right out of my yoga pants. Okay, that may be because of the chip kick I’ve been on lately, but you get the point. I am sad that not everyone will be able to make it this year, but I was born and raised a Cubs fan. I always believe next year will be our year.

I’ve made some progress on the book. It’s definitely not flowing as easily as some of the others, but I am trying to let go of the nit-pickiness and just write. A couple characters introduced themselves to me yesterday afternoon. I’m hoping they can light a little fire under me.

In other news, we’re in the final countdown to grandparentdom. Yay! Thanks to my fabulous friends, I have a swanky new Vera Bradley diaper bag, cementing my standing as the cool grandma.

Being the step-grandma, I got to choose my moniker. Therefore, I chose to retain the name that’s been pinned on me since I was a baby and declared myself the little man’s ‘Moogie’. Fodder will take the traditional route and be called ‘Granddad’.

Let’s see…what else?

I joined Weight Watchers again. (See bit above concerning chip binges) It’s amazing how fast I gain weight these days. I’m not going to get all het up about it, but I do want to keep it in check as much as I can. I’ve also gone back to the gym. I haven’t been running regularly since the flu took me out of the race last fall. It feels like I’m back to square one, even though I know I’m not. I’m scoping out 5k runs in the area, but I haven’t registered for one yet. The travel schedule for the day job isn’t set in stone, so I’ll have to wait to see where I may be in the coming months.

What are your plans for the week? Now that we’re past that first rush of resolutions, have you changed or added new goals for 2013? Yoga pants – scourge of fashion or God’s gift to middle-aged women? I could totally get away with carrying that diaper bag as a purse, couldn’t I?

These are the burning questions. Answer one or more of them and I may hook you or a friend up with digital copies of the first two books in Maggie Wells’ sizzling new Hot Nights in St. Blaise series.

Ready? Go!

    Very cool diaper bag. Team! I love that the baby will call you Moogie. You really will be the cool grandma. Well, if yoga pants are the scourge of fashion then call me Mrs. Scourge. Can’t wait to see you.

    There was never any doubt you’d be a cool gramma. Im a fan of this yoga pant sensation LOL
    So looking forward to a weekend of wearing yoga pants with you!

    That is cool you set yourself another running goal. I love how we all inspire each other. Its like a full circle of inspiration.

    I so can’t wait to see you and the girls! Every little bit helps with the healthy stuff, and I think you’ll be back to Grand Supreme Fitness Girl again before you know it. The book will slowly unravel itself in that wonderful, beautiful brain of yours. I know it’ll be spectacular!

    Yoga pants for life! 😀

    What are my plans for the week? Eh, nothing much to speak of…. Just kidding! I get to hang out with some of my best gals. And that includes you.
    I’m so with you on the fitness thing. I was doing so well there for a while, then life got in the way. I’ll get back to it though. I’ve already started to a bit, then injured my foot. It’s healed now, but I just need to not overdo it on my feet.
