School, T-Ball and Pants that Fall Down.

I am enrolled in introduction to creative writing and psychology 240. Classes start September 13th. Woo Hoo... no freakin' math!! :-)

I'm excited to take both of these classes. I enjoyed psych 101 when I took it and did really good in it too. Let's hope that it's just as good taking it online.

Since, my feet are feeling better I am officially back on the work out train. I have to whip my butt in gear by October something or other for the 5k that I am doing with pretty much everyone now. It started out as something small and now I think there are like 5 other people doing it. I would feel really bad if I couldn't do it now, after getting everyone else involved. I'm sure I will be fine. I just have to seriously kick some butt. I shred last night for the first time in awhile.. and OMG. I'm sore today... but it feels good. I know I am doing what I am supposed to be doing and it's fabulous. Hopefully the scale will start going down agian and I will really start feeling good again. Luckily over the last month and a half hiatus I took I haven't gained anything. But, this last week... well, let's just not talk about the last week. It involved chocolate and ice cream, a whopper, french fries and some other wonderful foods that I am not eating again. I did however make some cookies that were on the WW website. I don't recommend them. They were more like chocolate chip muffins. Pretty disappointing. Especially when I was hoping for gooey chocolate chip cookies. But, I guess coming off of a diet website that was some pretty unrealistic expectations.

Monster is going to be doing Little League T-Ball coming up in September. We are really excited aobut that. I think it will be really good for him to be involved in something with other kids. I worry about his serious video game obsession. It can't be good for a kid his age to be so involved with video games and tv. Shoot, maybe Kyle and I will make some friends that have kids. It's kinda strange being the only one's with kids. Most people just don't understand what it's like. We can't go out to the bar every weekend, or hardly any weekends to be more realistic. I don't remember the last time we had a date night. It seems like whenever he isn't working and we have a babysitter it's for something. Someone's birthday party, or some sort of event involving other people. haha... and we want another one. I sound pretty ridiculous. I'm complaining about not having any us time because we have 1 kid and no babysitters.. and I want more. I guess it really isn't that bad at all. I'm just feeling whiney.

I must go and exercise my butt off now. I want all of my clothes to be too big. :-)


Friends and all that stuff

Friendship. A word known by everyone, experienced by  most.


1. the state of being a friend; association as friends: to value a person's friendship.
2. a friendly relation or intimacy.
3. friendly feeling or disposition.

I have been thinking about my friends, and friendships that I have, previously had or wish were still the same. I think as a girl it is harder to keep and make friends. I know people who are still close to friends that they had in school and it seems strange to me. Most of the friends I had in school have changed so much that I don't really even want to associate with them anymore. Crap, there are people that were in my wedding 10 months ago that I don't want to be friends with anymore. Maybe, it's just me. I don't know.

I just want friends that are good people. Think about others more than themselves. Maybe have a few good morals and values. I have seen quotes about how friendship isn't about being inseperable, it's about being and nothing changes. This is true. So true. I'm not the kind of person who can be around someone all the time. I need my space. I need time for me. I don't want to have to worry about my friend being upset because I didn't text or call them that day. I'm  just not that kind of girl. I don't even talk to my own mom everyday. I probably wouldn't talk to Kyle everday if we didn't live together.

I don't have anything profound to say about friendship.. or particularly moving. It was just something I have been thinking about. And, looking at my wedding pictures today made me miss some friendships that I used to have. I believe everyone comes into your life for a reason. We had the friendship we had to learn from each other. Once that purpose was served you move on. But, that doesn't mean you can't miss it.

I do have a couple really close friends that I would be lost without. I am a social person 80% of the time. I like going out with a group of friends and having a good time. I think it is important to have friends in your life. They help you to be the best version of you that you can be. I truely believe this.

I love the girls that are in my life and I am thankful for them everyday.

I do believe that I have the best group of girl friends that any girl can have. I know I can call any of them at any moment with a problem and they would be there for me, no matter what. They dealt with me as bridezilla, that was the true test of friendship.

I love you ladies. :-)

And yes,  you would be correct in assuming we were at least 99% intoxicated in all 3 of these pictures.


I'm a Complete Slacker

Or.. maybe I'm not. So, I finished my classes and planned to take a month off from school. Surprise! I'm not. I will be taking a creative writing class starting September 7th. I'm actually kind of excited for this. I really think it will be fun and will help me to become a better writer. Which I definitely could afford to be!

One thing I have failed to mention on here, mostly because I think it is so gross, is that I have planters warts .. on my feet (mine aren't that bad, but still look diseased). Yeah, ouch, gross, disgusting and repulsive. I had to go to the Dr. today for treatment number 3 out of 6 and all I can think about is the fact that my foot hurts so bad. Which is why I am brining it up. Becuase, ow I can barely walk and it sucks that I can't go swimming with everyone else later. Yes, they are contagious. :-( I am way bummed.

I am down 17lbs! Awesome right?!?! Maybe you are sick of hearing about how much weight I have lost... but too bad! I am super de duper proud of myself. I can wear jeans I haven't worn in a really long time.I'm happy!

The last thing to update on is that we got rid of Z. I wish it was under better circumstances, but it was something that we had to do. For the safety of our other pets and selves. Bella and Zephyr got into a very nasty fight on Tuesday night. It was just Monster and I here when it happened. It was very scarey for both of us. Bella got hurt pretty bad and I had to take her to the emergency animal hospital to get her stitched up. When we got home Kyle called animal control to come and get Z. He was a very big part of our family for over a year and it was sad to see him go. We had done all we could for him, he listened better than he did when we got him but his anger and temper had only got worse. Z will be missed, but not the crazy angry Z. The lovable Z that would come and lay his head in my lap because he wanted me to pet him.



the one with random stuff that doesn't go together at all.

School is almost done. I have my finals tomorrow and Saturday. Then, I am taking a month off of school. I am thinking I wanna take english next semester and maybe a creative writting course. I'm really considering doing an english major.

I have lost 15.5lbs so far. Which I feel is a GIGANTIC accomplishment. I haven't worked out as much as I would like to lately, due to the most painful planters warts in the history of the world. But, I am going to get back on that ASAP! I have to continue training for the 5k in October. This is really setting me back.

Monster started 1st grade this week. He is really liking his new school. I'm glad, since he was REALLY bummed that he had to change schools. I know he is a friendly kid and will make tons of friends in no time. But, then again, I also know what it's like to change schools a lot. It's hard. I hated it. I think he is ok for now. I just don't want him to have to change again anytime soon.

So, I think that's all I have for tonight.

However, I have been thinking about doing this. I might do it when my wonderful husband gets me my new camera for Christmas. and do 365 days starting on Christmas. I thought is seemed pretty cool. :-)
