Should I stay or should I go?

Today my boss asked if I would consider going to Dubai.  As I stood there slack jawed and shocked he explained the position.  It would be a contract assingnment for a year, working as an admin, and for $126,000.  I almost passed out! 

I have a couple of things running through my mind. 
  • What an honor to be considered for a position in another country. 
  • The money!
  • How exciting to see a different part of the world.
  • Ummmm, the money!
  • I would miss my family, especially my kiddos.
  • Did I mention the money?!?
  • Skype and my computer would be my best friend.
  • Money isn't everything, but it sure would help.
I've talked to Hubby and surprisingly he said to go.  My plan is to talk to my boss tomorrow.  We will go from there.

Goals revisited

Do you remember the Hot 100 challenge that Steve put on last year?  I actually miss it.  I miss having set goals for myself (other than losing weight) and being able to talk about them on a weekly basis.  Why can't I do this on my own?  Ding ding ding....I can! 

1.  Lose weight every week (DUH) no matter how small it is.  My first goal is 5% of 299.2, which equals 284.3.
2.  Drink more water!
3.  Log my food, every single bite, in the Weight Watchers website.
4.  Use my new best friend (the treadmill) at least 4 days a week. 
5.  Stop the bad snacking after work.

Stop by every Friday if you want to see the progress.  Do you have goals that you would like to set for yourself?
