finally their dreams have come true! on wednesday minda and chris (my fabulous boss and her husband) were able to adopt a baby girl.
mayla lucille zoloth was born on tuesday may 27th at 6:06pm. she was 6lbs 9oz and absolutely gorgeous. i will post a picture as soon as i have permission from the new mom.
chris and minda have had years of struggle and heartache trying to get a baby...i am so excited for them and their precious little baby!
congratulations mom dad and baby mayla! much love!

yeah yeah yeah, i know that i am almost a week late on this post...but i have good excuse. that is to say i have an excuse! our weigh in was postponed to tuesday as monday was the memorial day holiday. morbid that i like this holiday? maybe, but that is for another blog another time.
back to the excuse. as mentioned before, monday was memorial day, i didn't have to work on monday (insert a choir of angels singing hallelujah). i keep my scale hidden in my employee break room at work so that i am not tempted to continually weigh myself through out the week. this easily could frustrate an already frustrated katie. so my aunt and i decided that it would be fair to post pone it until tuesday so that i didn't have to drive into work to weigh myself. a task that would have taken moments, but for those who know my job...it is impossible for me to be at work for a "moment".
i walk in the door and they hear a choir of angels singing hallelujah, questions come from no where and, of course, there will be a situation that i just have to hear about at that very second. damn, i love my job...i feel like a rock star when i am at work...most of the time!
ok, so now onto the weigh in. it wasn't what i wanted. i actually lost ZERO pounds. upset? a little. frustrated? a little. discouraged? a little. but, hey, i didn't gain weight...so there is a plus! and i am sure i will have these weeks, lets just hope they come few and far between!
check back on monday for another update! i am not feeling so hot about this week, but i still have two days! last minute work out here i come!

this conversation is real. the names have been shortened to initials to protect the innocent.
this conversation took place between my friend christie (see earlier post about one of my favorite shades of red head!) and her boyfriend...soon to be ex-boyfriend if their if this conversation has anything to do with it!
christie had a traumatizing experience this morning...her kitty escaped last night and she is not an outdoor kitty. as chrisite has no kids, cricket is her baby. christie was very upset...hysterical, frantic, anxious, nervous...not good. the following conversation took place at the height of her emotional break down:
c: "i need to have some posters made, uh, posters to hang up of cricket..." (gets the yellow pages out and frantically begins to flip through the pages)
c: "what should i look under, posters, banners, copies...what would you look under?"
g: "um, i don't know. i haven't used the phone book in years. i use the internet, so i google everything."
c: "what? WHAT! it's the same thing!!! WHAT KEY WORD WOULD YOU USE!!!!!!!"
really? i mean really? it is difficult to believe that these conversations actually take place, especially between two intelligent people.
but, i would like to give "g" special thanks! i have a new favorite phrase...it will be used and overused for generations to come!!
"I DON'T KNOW...I USE THE INTERNET!"
p.s. christie's kitty, cricket, returned home later this morning, just in time for sunday brunch! mom and kitty are doing great!
