still there

My life still hasn't got more quiet. Or me having more free time.

Currently I'm spending every other Monday at a friends place because he's a Fysiotherapist and he's helping me with my legs and back.

Tuesdays is spend with the Boyfriend. As are Wednesdays after my dance class.
Thursday is a bit of relax evening but I still have the feeling I never get anything done on that evening.

The weekend is spend doing the obligated visits to the family and grandparents. I don't mind visiting them but it does take loads of your time. And I'm doing a course of Labour Law for work. Which is coming along fine. Hope to finish the chapters this long weekend and then only have to study. Got an examtraining at the end of April and the exam on May 10th. Can't wait until it's done.

Already planned some holidays. I'm off the last week of May and the first week of June. We're having an unplanned vacation. The boyfriend thinks I need to know that you don't have to plan everything. And we're going with friends to Italy the first week of July. And then we still have some days left (a few weeks even) for the rest of the year.

We're still looking for a house. Closer to buying one than before. But my parents aren't really sure about it yet. The living area is livable (if that's a word), and we just have to adjust it to our likings. But the rest of the house (it used to be a part of farm so extra space for chickens and horses) is a work in progress. And my parents think it will be too much money, and that I'll have to compromise on holidays because that money will be better spend on the house. And on the one hand that's true, but the boyfriend says that we can choose where we spend our money on and it's not that it's the house that needs to be repaired. But then again our visions on holidays are completely different. I'd like to go to USA, South Africa, Australia, China, see the world. He'd like that too but if he doesn't that's ok as well. He used to stay in the Netherlands for holidays, which is fine too but just not for me.

But with bikini season just around the corner (although Baskins and Robbins is closer :D), I want to lose a bit of weight. I've been wanting to lose weight for a few years now but never had the discipline to do it. Why starve yourself? Well....I'm not gonna starve myself but I'm going to be a bit more active in not snacking. Like when I get home from work and while I'm waiting for dinner to be ready I could be eating a cookie, or easter eggs, or m&ms. I'm trying to watch that now.

And of course only watching what you eat won't help. So I'm trying to exercise more. Got a wii after Christmas but had to disconnect it because some guys would come in to repaint the ceiling. It has been postponed, they should have painted in the beginning of Jan but still haven't been (something with one of the painter's wife). Haven't connected the wii since. So I just should connect it, it's not that it's loads of work. And I'm doing my fysiotherapy exercises every evening. And after the exam in May I'll have my weekends free to do more walking and cycling.

Hope to not be away for so long.
