My {Filofax} Week 18

Paper Lovestory's My Week

I have a bit of a confession to make. There’s no photo this week because I didn’t write a thing on my weekly pages.

So what did I do with my week?

It was a week full of catch-up meetings. Apparently my department really like’s that word, because I had 3 “catch-ups” scheduled. Out of those three, one turned into a phone call that was less than 5 minutes and one got cancelled. In addition to that, Wednesday-Friday I met with each of the students that work in our office individually, and got pay raises approved for them. I hate to brag, but I’m kind of excited to say that this is the first time they’ve gotten raises in like 2 years. It feels good to know I could be a part of that.

I finished Pretty by Jillian Lauren. I can’t say I’m a fan of the book. It just wasn’t really my style, and I found it really hard to read. I’m still trying to get through Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits book and Drive by Daniel Pink, but I’m quickly moving through Organized Simplicity by Tsh Oxenreider and The Summer I Learned to Fly by Dana Reinhardt. I also spent some time catching up on YouTube videos (one of these days I’ll get caught up.) and watched Silver Linings Playbook. I’m a huge Bradley Cooper fan, but I have to say, Jennifer Lawrence is winning me over. I’m not sure I can continue to lump her into the terrible-acting crew (think Twilight – sorry, that cast ruined the books for me).

I was really freaking out about all the work stuff I had to do this week. Needless to say, my guilty pleasure this week was working out. I went full out, and basically lived in workout clothes outside of work. I even walked during my lunch break (in 5″ heels, but hey, it worked). I picked up some more workout DVDs (some old-school Katrina and Karena stuff.) Protein drinks and healthy foods also found their way into my life, and I’m happy to report a lifestyle change is under way at my house. I may not be able to get everyone on board with working out (Tone It Up doesn’t work for someone with bad knees and shoulders as my mom found out), but I can convince them to eat a bit healthier. I’m not going full out healthy lifestyle, but I can do better than microwaved burritos and candy bars.

Amidst all that, I forgot to do my school work AGAIN. In my defense the ones I forgot were due Friday NOT Sunday like usual, but I did get some of it submitted. Lesson to be learned here… use a planner!

Since I had no picture of my weekly pages, here’s some photos from last week.

Walking to work, I decided to snap a picture of the pond and the other buildings on campus.

I had the pleasure of driving behind this guy for nearly 10 minutes which was lovely….

During one of my lunch breaks, I happened to find this little guy.

Saturday could be summed up by this set up right here.

The animals all joined me as well. Remi played. The cats wandered in and out, but Zoey chilled right under the table.
