A Little Update and Confession of Cougarism

So, by a 67% majority vote of all my loyal readers votes (My friend D didn't vote - who is the other 33%), it looks like I WILL be doing the Project 365. I'm excited. I'm optimistic. I have high hopes. I'll probably slack off at some point. BUT, I'm gonna do it. It will be very cool to see my year in pictures. I'm going to try very hard NOT to do a years worth of pictures of Gemma... Instead I'm really going to try and focus on what made that day special. I hope to start my project on April 1st so stay tuned for the link! :o)

My next decision that I'll need to make regarding the project is what to do with the pics when I'm done. I may do a scrapbook... we'll see! But I'm definitely printing them out and doing something with them collectively

Recap from the weekend. I saw two great movies this weekend. First, we took j to see "Alice in Wonderland" at the IMAX theatre and we both L-O-V-E-D it. J wasn't quite as impressed but he liked it. I highly recommend seeing it and in fact, I'll probably purchase it when it comes out. j was already asking if we could watch it again as we were walking out of the theatre.... It was a big hit with j.

The second was my LONG awaited "New Moon" and it was SOOOOO worth the wait!!

Although I now have an unhealthy lust for TWO teenage boys. I feel dirty. But "HELLO?!" I don't remember the boys in high school looking like this:
OMG...come to Momma's mini van, I got a piece of candy for ya! *Dirty Evil Cougar Grin*

I'm so buying the DVD and I W.I.L.L. go to the theatre to see Eclipse! Its coming out on June 30th. Can't wait to see more half naked 17 year old boys' bodies! Yum ;)

I want to buy the whole series so I can read it again...for the third time.

I've been scrapbooking again and I still L.O.V.E. it! I wish I could do it even more. I have a whole list of tools and supplies I want to buy. I'm hoping to possibly get a Cricut for my birthday! *Cheesy Grin* That would be super awesome for me because I like to make the embellishments and such myself. I really want to get my sister's wedding album done and make an album for the day my most wonderful nephew in the world was born. Yes, this day deserves an album all itself. :o)

On a sadder note, my boss had breast cancer five years ago and a biopsy this past week confirmed she has it again and this time it is in her bone as well. She has to have a hysterectomy to try and reduce some of the estrogen in her body and she has to undergo an oral targeted chemo - which isn't supposed to make her nearly as sick. BUT the good news is with these treatments the doctor is giving her a 99% of going back into remission. So, please everyone reading this keep her in your thoughts and prayers. She's a wonderful person and deserves every prayer she can get! :o)

As Seen on Pinterest: Paper Towel Curls

I pinned this and put it under "Must Try" because seriously -- her hair looks SO CUTE and I want my hair to look like this:

And I can TOTALLY do that ya'll. So, I tried it.

Step 1: Start with wet hair. Me post workout shower [disregard the red face -- I look like my blood pressure is that of a 300 lb man in his late 40s really high after a run] with wet hair.

Step 2: Put mousse in hair, tie hair up in paper towel "curlers" rrrrreeeeaaaalllly tight. Sleep uncomfortably on back all night because said paper towel curlers are too tight. Wake up the next morning really excited -- you gonna be FABULOUS dah-ling [or so I thought].
I know I don't look excited but this is at 5:30 in the morning -- this is as excited as it gets.
Step 3: Take "curlers" out of hair and FREAK THE F OUT when you realize the curls are WWW***AAA***YYY too tight... worked a little TOO well. Maybe I need to just run my fingers through it. Yeah, I'll run my fingers …

Jason's Graduation: Part II

Dr. Allen, DC
4/5 of our marriage has been spent working towards this day. To say we are excited would be a great understatement. I can't even put into words how excited/happy/scared/proud/relieved, etc, etc, etc we are. There just are no words. Jason has worked tirelessly towards this goal. Countless hours of studying. Sacrificing time with me and the kids. And all the work he put in advertising and recruiting patients into the clinic. Personal training early mornings and late nights to help makes ends meet.  And I think of all the sacrifice we've made as a family. Living in a townhouse and then a tiny apartment. I've been the primary provider and a mostly single parent during some stages. And a constant cheerleader and standing behind pushing. We've both been pushing uphill for what seems like forever towards this goal. And we've made it. Not to discount his hard work, because he was the one who really accomplished this goal but I like to think we accomplished this …

Ramblings of a Panic Attack

I’m having a panic attack. These stupid meds are killing me. I hate them. Stick with it, stick with it, stick with it. I know it’s the meds. I just have to get through this and relax for a couple weeks. I hate this job. It’s not even that bad it’s just HORRIBLY boring. I don’t want to do this every day. I appreciate learning the process and gaining experience but it’s not what I like to do. I don’t even like accounting that much to begin with but there are aspects I like and I know it. The pay is killing me. I need money. I can’t continue to be completely broke before the first week of the month is over. Collections calls ringing all day. I’m applying to jobs like crazy. I’m trying so hard. I’m just going to keep pushing forward. Keep. Pushing. Forward. I hate that I wanted a life with Jason. That I was too blind to realize what he was. That I was ok with him even from the very beginning when I knew better. Why didn’t I want better things for myself? Seeing him makes me want to vomit.…
