As I sit here and get ready to have a bit if coffee I can say that this has been one heck if a busy week. Kind of like, you have busy weeks and then you have BUSY weeks. 

Things are coming together nicely for our upcoming Bike MS event but it has been like an all out sprint all week to stay ahead. The event binder is all but finished, much ahead if schedule. The rest stop supplies have all been bought and will be packed today and distributed Monday evening at Val's, so things are going great. Adding school to that mix is the kicker. There is a ton of reading for Tuesdays 705 and although I really enjoy Finance its still a little new and different. 

I've been lucky to be off from Outback all week and its made me really putt priorities in order again. If I can't work as many shifts (3) as I have most weeks, its okay. I might make that final payment on my credit card in January and not December but I will make time for school and finish strong. I have 11 weeks left this semester and then 15 next semester. 

I'm looking forward to golfing with friends in the morning and finishing my part of a group project tomorrow evening. 

It's been a great week with a lot if progress and I leave you with this. Go make today great, don't wait on the day to do the work for you. That's Beene refocused and renewed attitude all week and it works.

Two weeks!

Diet soda free for two weeks now. I'm pretty pumped about that. 

Now it's time to start chipping away on eating better. 

If I can do that I'd like to start trying to workout 2 or 3 times per week. 

Life is busy so it's not going to be easy but I think it can be done. 

Gonna try to do a meatless Monday to get plenty of fruits and veggies in my body today and eat a little cleaner this week. 

Remember make today great. Don't sit back and wait for good things to happen. Have a positive attitude and work hard. 

Fridays Quick Hits

Made it through another week and I can genuinely say TGIF today. 

It hasn't been the easiest of weeks with the passing of Tara's grandmother last weekend and the viewing and funeral this week. I will continue to pray for my beautiful wife and the rest if the family. 

It was the first week of the new school year for Tara and after a challenging first day it seems that things have been more smooth sailing the rest of the week. 

I've made it through 3 days of no soda now and successfully made it through the entire shift at Outback Wednesday night. 

Thank goodness for Labor Day to have a chance to catch up and get ahead on ally school work. I've maintained pretty well so far but I want to make sure I do well and. 

28 class weeks until graduation!
