Hey ladies!!!

Wow! I can not believe how much time has passed so quickly! I started my job 3 weeks ago now, and I feel like I haven't stopped moving since then. This week has been nuts with training everyday and driving through Houston traffic. To any of you ladies from Houston...what is up with all of the EZ Pass only lanes!? It's so irritating to never be able to merge onto the toll road! Each night I have gotten back to my room after 8 and literally crashed into my pillow. I'm exhausted, but it feels good. I'm learning a lot and everyday is a new challenge! Monday I barely made it here because of the blizzard that was about to hit KC. Tuesday the blizzard hit, our corporate offices closed down and we were unable to reach tech support. Today, I woke-up to a hotel room with absolutely no power! Thank goodness for the flashlight app. I installed on my 4G! It's ben ridiculous, but I think it's the best way to go through training. Expecting the unexpected.
I never got a chance to post my reolutions this week, so although I am a little late I am going to head and post! Here we are at week 4! Can you believe it?!
Week 5
1. Finish book 6 of 2011! (whew, I made it already!)
2. Start a routine of eating healthy while being on the road. It's tough to eat healthy when all you want to do is get something fast. McDonalds, Taco Bell and Sonic are all right there as you drive back to the hotel each night... But, I am doing really well! Fruit, salad, breakfast bars, hummus... I've been hitting the Whole Foods and getting some great healthy options for dinner...and hello sushi! I love Whole Foods sushi! So YUMMY!
3.Catch up on everyone's blogs! Seriously, I miss you guys!!!

So, there you have it. My abridged little list for the week since we're already halfway there. I hope everyone is staying warm! It's a little bittersweet not being home with the blizzard having hit. I worry about my family and my husband...and of course my puppies. I don't like being so far away when the state is an actual declared emergency area! EEP! Here's to hoping I actually make it home on Friday....It's supposed to freaking snow here!!!! Right now, i'm freezing... what happened to the sun and the warn days that usually happen in Texas!? 

So please everyone...how are you all doing?!!? I am so out of the loop!!!
