Thrifty Thursday

Happy Thursday, friends! Hope the week has been good to you. I have finally fit into a pair of normal jeans - no elastic waist here, people! And at times today, I feel like an over stuffed sausage. Oh well.

Last night I conquered my fear of talking in front of people. I ran the booster club meeting last night and the world didn't end. Had to take a helper, but I survived.

Have you watched the performance finale of So You Think You Can Dance? It aired on Tuesday. Sooooo good. I can't choose between Chehon and Cyrus. Two completely different dancers, yet both were fabulous! Loved the last number of the night when Cyrus danced with Twitch - hip hop animation style. Very good. I think Elaina has wrapped it up for the girls. She is powerful and her leg extensions go on for days. We'll see who wins next week!

Glee starts tonight! Are you ready to get your Gleek on? I am. I did watch some of the reruns this summer. Had to watch Nationals, again. So good!

I think my son and I have figured out our schedule for the year. I have it figured out when I can sneak away and walk on the treadmill and what our eating schedule will be. Of course, just as I had thought I had the morning schedule down, I don't go walking for the past 2 mornings. I have been very tired in the mornings. Might need to re-introduce coffee into my system.
