hey. where'd tuesday go?

Whoops. I forgot to post yesterday.
Can't really blame me though...it was one heckuva day.

Got up and came in for my spin and sculpt class with a full day of work, and at the end I was called up to be given a shiny letter of offer - yes indeedy! I got the job I interviewed for last week! I have to pick a start date, but it will be much sooner than expected. Likely mid-november. Meep!
To celebrate, J and I went out for El Salvadorian food at a favourite local place. Mmmm...I had Stuffed peppers and rice and beans and horchata and one damn fine mojito to toast my brilliance :). THEN, as luck would have it, J scored tickets to a play, so we took the night off to celebrate. Which was FANTASTIC. We saw Nevermore -It's a morbid musical on the life of Edgar Allen Poe by a theatre company from Edmonton. Creepy and dark and very Tim Burtoney in costume style and humour. I absolutely loved it. Fell into bed happy and full of food and imagination.

Now today begins the handing in my resignation, picking a start date and then adding the craziness of a new job and closing down the old to the pile of nustofaction already in place for November. Oh, and did I mention my dad is coming to visit tomorrow? We're going out for supper for my birthday and to celebrate the new job. Yeah. Busy crazy few days it's been and will continue to be.

So this AM, to pay for unhealthy meals the past few days I got up for boot camp class and was NOT disappointed. She did a whole class of cardio intervals interspersed with many many tabata sets of things. Oh yes...it was as evil as it sounds. Tabata sets...of lunges. All on one leg. Then on to the other leg...heh. Then Tabata sets of many compiled exercises. Then more cardio. Then more tabata. I pushed myself...muscles burned...I swore...I now feel like jello.

It was brilliant :)

I am off to a busy day of much to do. Must add in closing down my job and winding up things for the department now. All the things on my "to do" list have to get done in a few weeks.

Heh...well, here we go!
GOod day to you all. I must dash!
