I haven’t been this tired in a long time. I worked five days this week (instead of my normal four) and I’m freakin’ exhausted. It would have been fine if it was a normal week but noooo this was a work week from hell. One of our dental assistants started her treatment for stage 4 cancer (yeah, that’s happening, a long, sad story), the other assistant decided to quit because she has NO idea what the real world is about and needs a serious wake-up call (super coddled young girl) leaving the rest of the office stressed the eff out.
The only free time I have has been consumed with watching Canada KICK ASS at the Olympics (this post will be live before Canada plays US this afternoon, love you guys but I hope we kick your butts!) I LOVE the Olympics and we have plans to attend the 2022 Winter games no matter where they are (though hoping when announced next year Scandinavian country wins bid). I do feel bad about the Russian mens hockey team though…not that I wanted them to win but feel bad they didn’t make it to semis.
It’s February which means tax time. We’re waiting on hubby’s tax slip from work them I *think* we have everything. Given this months current events (work stress/illness/Olympics) I haven’t gathered any info about claiming my blog on taxes and I’m scared shitless about what I’m going to owe. I have quite a few deductions both personally and blog related so my hope is that we shouldn’t owe but it was a weird year with me being on maternity leave for the first half, unsure how it will affect everything. Anyways I guess we’ll see in a week or two when I have some time.
Totally unrelated but I’ve been giving My Fitness Pal an honest shot to help with tracking/weight loss and while I think it’s a great app I don’t think I can sustain myself long term. I hate that the other day even though my lunch was 75% fruits and veggies I had to use over 200 calories where on weight watchers it would have been 0 points (minus the dressing and hummus I had). I like the logic (in WW) that not all foods are equal and encourages you to fill up on healthy ”0 point” foods. I’ve tried and haven’t quite given up but think I will go back to tracking via Weight Watchers. Does anyone else use MFP and have secret tips? Maybe don’t track fruits and veggies (unless you start eating like 3 bananas/day sort of thing).
Needless to say, I’m looking forward to this weekend. Hopefully getting caught up on blog stuff, maybe getting taxes organized and a lot of good Olympic fun with everything coming to a close this weekend!
