RIP Dave Mathews 1976 - 2010

April Fool's Day. What a dumb holiday, huh?! I'm terrible at playing pranks. It just feels too mean... I can't think of anything funny that's not too cheezy or too mean to joke about. So, I don't like it. AND, I'm gullible as all get out, and I hate feeling dumb. Like this morning, a friend of mine posted on facebook: RIP Dave Mathews 1976 - 2010. All I was thinking was "Wow, can't believe all the celebrities dying this year..." and "She really loves Dave Mathews I bet she's bummed..." Um, yeah, April Fool's you door knob... Sheesh. J hasn't pulled anything on me yet, so I'm just waiting... we shall see. *shifty eyes*

Goal Update - Day 3

1. Wake up at 6:30 every morning. NO SNOOZE BUTTON. Yesterday morning - got up at 6:40 only to have J come in and snuggle with me (didn't make it out of bed till 7ish but it was worth it) and this morning, BIG FAIL - went to bed late last night and Snoozed the heck out of my alarm this morning. I knew this one would be a very tricky one but I'm gonna keep after it.
2. No facebook at work, not even at lunch. And blogger only at lunch to update on my goal(s) status. Eh, better but still not good. Still doing at lunch and a sneak peak now and then, but overall a VAST improvement from before.
3. DIET - not a strict one but NO snacks in between meals and much smaller portions. Much, much smaller. Again, eh...better. I'm back down to the weight I was when I threw a temper tantrum and gave up on the Acai crap. So, I suppose that is good. Still fighting with the mini candy bars behind me though. That's a toughy.
4. 35 minutes on the stairmaster every night as soon as I get home from work. If I have plans after work, then have to do the stairmaster in the a.m. Any other working out is optional but this is mandatory. SCORE! Ran around the park once and walked around once on Tues night and 35 min on Stairmaster last night. Go me! :)
5. As soon as I get done on the stairmaster, house work for another 30 min. My poor house is in dire need. Yes Tuesday night and not so much last night, but I worked late so I'll let this one slide a tiny bit for last night.

So basically not much improvement made really except I'm very aware of when I am/am not doing these things so that's a start I suppose.

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...
Ok...um...that worked a little TOO well. Maybe I need to just run my fingers through it. Yeah, I'll run my fingers …

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.…

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 …
