I have three items of good news to post tonight.
1. The special football edition has been put to bed! I am finished with that particular nightmare for one more year.
2. I was going over the pages in Welcome to Tate County (the magazine our paper publishes once a year) and (it would seem) that I don't have to panic about not having enough copy. GOD IS SO GOOD!
Explination: usually, someone outside of the regular office staff puts the mag together, since we run such a skeleton crew. However, the publisher decided that it would be done in-house this year. The problems with that are 1. I already have my hands full with my regular work, 2. I know LESS THAN NOTHING about putting a magazine together, and 3. Usually, there is an intern to help out, but thanks to some "magic brownies" the night before a drug test, that didn't quite work out this year.
I'll still work on Saturday, but I'm much better off than I thought I was. Now, I just have to concentrate on the deadline: September 1. Luckily we have an early deadline on our normal work that week, so I can devote Friday to the magazine.
Now, for the third bit:
3. I BROKE THE 180 MARK! FINALLY, I'M IN THE 170's! I lost another pound this week, taking me to 179. Actually, it was a little more than that, but my WW leader said she'd be conservative this week so that I'd have a better weigh in next week. Then she told the group I was her star pupil!
(I know y'all are getting tired of the whole weight loss thing. I'll try to keep these rants to once a week. I promise.)
That about does it for this update. I got very little sleep last night, and had to function today on basically lots of caffeine. I am now off to bed, except that I think I hear Jason watching one of his Star Trek Voyager DVDs in there.
