Because I promised...

Here I am from sunny Colorado, because I promised Laura. After all I could not possibly lose my daily updates from Indiana.

So what am I doing today? Well, I am working away right now and will be taking a break in a few to run to the gym. My favorite thing to do at the gym is workout in the cardio cinema room, which is a dark room with a 17 foot TV screen where they show movies. As most people know about me, I am a movie fanatic, owning nearly 800 titles of my very own. I can watch the same movie again and again without getting bored, so this is truly the best gym ever for me (Spiderman 1 is playing today, luckily I have only seen this one 20 or so times). :-)

This afternoon I have to finish preparing for a presentation I have tomorrow at TESSA (the domestic violence organization I work with). We have a meet and greet tomorrow where the new interns are introduced to each of us and given the opportunity to pick someone to work with during their internship (I hope I get someone nice, LOL). I will also be starting up self esteem workshops for girls and have to give a run down on that curriculum. I am so excited about these workshops...scariest statistic I have heard this week...51% of girls age 8 believe that they are overweight. Well as with most everything that touches my heart, I believe that I can make a difference and because of that can't sit back and not act. I just completed my Dove training to become a facilitator of their self esteem workshops so I already have a good idea of how to approach the audience, that coupled with my experiencing in my Family Nights (the group I run at the SafeHouse) I think I should be ok.

Speaking with my Mom yesterday morning, I was mentioning that I was going to start a blog and sure enough she couldn't resist and started one herself. For those of you back in Indiana one of the things I miss from when I was younger is that my Mom used to write the editorials for the local newspaper. She is an amazing writer with a great sense of wit and intelligence so I am excited to read her blog daily also.

Goodbye until tomorrow...

Yay! I am so proud of you! Even though I talk to you every morning, I love to read about the everyday things my favorite son-in-law wanna-be, my granddogs, and your roomies (one of which is my number one son!) are doing. I'll follow it daily. Congrats on the great stuff at TESSA - you'll do great. Love you biggest bunches.
