10 Things I Hate About Me

My hubby G asked on his blog for his readers to tell about the things they don't like about themselves. Well, here ya go dear:

-I don't usually get excited about things or events. This makes people think that I am upset or that I don't care, but I do

-I tend to get upset very quickly. It happens in a matter of seconds. I get out of control and can be violent to unsuspecting pillows.

-I am very controlling. I like things done my way(since my way is the best way...heehee).

-I have to win arguments. Just ask my hubby about that one.

-I am can be very sensitive. Words affect me big time.

-I don't take criticism well. Again it has to do with how words greatly affect me.

-I can be really lazy. When the housework is done, all I feel like doing is relaxing in front of the TV. I know that I should find something to do around the house(there is always something), but I am too lazy to do so.

-I don't have much self confidence. I am always doubting myself emotionally and physically.

-I like to push people buttons/I am an antagonist. I guess I get this from being the oldest child.

-I'm not quick on my toes. I just take to long to think about things which makes me appear to be indecisive.

Offertory Prayer

A visiting minister during the offertory prayer:

"Dear Lord," he began with arms extended and a rapturous look on his upturned face, "without you we are but dust..."

He would have continued, but at that moment one very obedient little girl (who was listening carefully for a change!) leaned over to her mother and asked quite audibly in her shrill little girl voice, "Mommy, WHAT is butt dust?"

Church was pretty much over at that point...

From my mom. Thanks mom!

Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy(H2G2)

Image hosted by Photobucket.com



Synopsis:
Earthman Arthur Dent is having a very bad day. His house is about to be bulldozed, he discovers that his best friend is an alien and to top things off, Planet Earth is about to be demolished to make way for a hyperspace bypass. Arthur's only chance for survival: hitch a ride on a passing spacecraft. Arthur sets out on a journey in which he finds that nothing is as it seems, but everything he needs to know can be found in one book: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.


H2G2 comes out in theaters today. The previews for this movie look amazing! I am very curious to see how similar it is to the book. However, I read on a site about how film makers added characters to the movie.(Like there weren't enough characters to begin with).

The book was very...what's the word...interesting. There were quite a few weird parts along with some laugh out loud humor. All in all, I liked the book. The only thing I didn't like was that evolution is all throughout the book. It took me forever to get past the first 100 pages because of all the evolving from monkeys talk. Every time it was mentioned, I had to put the book down. But, I was able to finish the remaining 732 pages in less then a week.

After finishing the book, I wanted more. The ending just didn't do it for me. As I closed the book I felt like I wasted my time reading it for an ending like that. But, over all it was a good book...if you like science fiction.

What should we fans expect?
We should expect a movie that quite differs from the books, the radio show and the TV show. The script has a new angle to the story, there are new plot elements and even a few new characters. So if you get in line on the day of the premiere and is eager to see a film adaptation of the books/Radio/TV-show, you are most likely bound to become disappointed. The story is mostly reinvented, but rest assured that it's all still Douglas Adams.

"After finishing the book, I wanted more. The ending just didn't do it for me."

That's because the book doesn't stand alone. There are five books in all. The story continues on through all of them.

The story was a radio drama before it was a book, so a vast ocean of story existed before the first book went in to print.

If you enjoyed the book and the movie, I suggest that you read on to the other four.

April 30, 2005 10:42 PM

 
Blogger Trinity13 said...

I know that the book doesn't stand alone. I'm not a complete moron. I even mentioned in the post that the book was 832 pages(which obviously meant that I read more than the first book).

I read the Complete Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy(all 5 in one) which had a great introduction. In the intro, it told all about the radio show. So, I knew all about it and I still didn't like the ending.

But thank you for that precious little nugget.

Crazy Sis

Okay, here's the deal. My sister called me up and asked me to go to a concert with her. She told me that it was sometime in April, but she didn't know the exact date. I said yes only because I didn't want her to go alone. After I paid $30 to go to a concert that I really didn't have much interest in, I found out that there were others going and that I was going to be the odd person, the ninth wheel if you wish.

If that wasn't bad enough, I found out last week that the concert is tonight...on a Thursday. I make $60 watching the autistic boy on Thursdays. I wasn't about give that up to go to a sucky concert. I would have rather lost out on the $30 concert ticket than to give up a child care night.

Well, being the good sister that I am, I have worked everything out so that I can go with the sis. She really wanted me to go with her, so I am(unfortunately). I rescheduled tonight with the autistic boy so that I would not disappoint my crazy sis. But, she owes me big time!!!

Why Do I Do This To Myself?

I love love love to read. I am almost always in the middle of several novels. But lately I have give up the books to read blogs. But here's the problem...It seems like I add a new blog to read everyday. I guess there are just way to many interesting people here in blogworld. But, I don't have the time to read the over 50 blogs that I already have let alone all the new ones. And, it's not like I can curl up on the couch with a good blog. I have to be online in my hubby's office where I can't always keep my eyes on the three boys.

What am I to do?

No Mommy's Night

I decided to stay home last night instead of going out and doing my mommy thing. Because my hubby and I are short on funds right now, I didn't want to waste any money by going out. When I do get out on Mondays, I usually go to one or two clothing stores(to look for my $1 deals) and then Meijer for groceries. But I figured that if I didn't go out I would be saving us money. We have enough food to last us through the month so there was really no need for me to shop. When we do have funds available, I always get items that are on sale that week(at Meijer) whether we need them or not. That way when we don't have any extra money, I don't have to worry about it since I am stocked up.

So, I stayed home with the family last night. I made a quick 20 minute meal of turkey, mashing potatoes and gravy, corn, peas, and lemon poppy seed muffins. My hubby was in heaven! He was talking about how the meal was almost better than sex. Almost! He wondered how pleasurable it would be to eat a meal like that while having sex. That's when he went into a state of blissful thought. Crazy guy!

After dinner I was able to go out and mow. I wanted to over the weekend, but the ground was way to wet with all the SNOW! So I did my thing outside(and it's a good thing too since it's raining today) while my hubby fixed our bathroom sink drains inside with our son. They had a great time together.

I was actually able to jump a little last night on the trampoline(after mowing of course). It was a little cold, but after a minute of intense jumping, I was feeling the heat! I stayed on for about 20 minutes to build up a good sweat...and all the while I was having fun! How great is that?

After my workout, I was finally able to take a shower and get cleaned up. The rest of the night was spent on the couch with the family. My son and I cuddled under a warm blanket as my hubby was our foot cushion.

Life is grand!

Potty Training

A few months ago, my hubby and I spent a several weekends trying to potty train our three year old. We eventually gave up because we thought we were rushing him. We didn't think he was quite ready.

Well, last night my hubby actually got our son to pee in the potty all my himself for the first time!!! I was so excited since it only took 5 minutes of sitting. I guess it couldn't take long since my hubby kept making the boy drink water.

My hubby G has decided to try to help my son pee in his potty every night before bed. He wants to add it to the night time schedule of washing hands and brushing teeth. All I can say is that it's about time my hubby stepped up and helped my son out. Heehee!!! After all, they have the same equipment. But thank you G for spending that time with our son.

Life is grand with being happy over pee in a potty!

Weigh In

Well with one week left in our four month weight challenge, I am now down 42 pounds. My current weight is at 173, with a weight loss of 2 pounds this past week.

I would love to have a great last week, but I don't think it's going to happen. I just love food too much!!! Plus, the weather has to be decent for me to work out on the trampoline. Here in Ohio I had to dig out my winter cloths again because of the nasty weather. And, I refuse to jump outside when it's snowing.

Life is grand with snow in late April!

Well, tomorrow I go in for my HSG test. I thought I might be nervous, but I'm not. I guess it's because I really don't fear the un-none. I don't know exactly what's going to happen or what it's going to feel like, so I have nothing to be afraid of. Does that make sense?

Hair Cuts And Throw Up

Today I took the two year old red head and my three year old son to my mom's beauty shop to get their hair cut. My mom got out her booster seat to accommodate the littles that would soon be sitting in the salon chair. My son has never liked getting his hair cut, so the red head went first. He sat very quietly while my mom cut off an inch of his curls. He didn't even move as my mom trimmed up his neck with her electric clippers. After his cut, he was rewarded with a very yummy red tootsie pop.

Then it was my son's turn. This boy hates getting his hair cut. He was fine the first two times it was ever cut, but after that he didn't want anything of it. He even told us today that big boys don't' get their hair cut! Can you believe him??

Well, after much fighting I got him to sit on my lap for a rushed trim. Nothing would keep the kid still...not even a sucker! He ended up getting hair all over me and in his mouth from wiggling around. After a few minutes of fussing and crying, my mom said that that was the best she could do under the circumstances. She told me though to just not tell people who cuts his hair. Heehee!

The three of us went straight back to my place after the beauty shop since the boys needed a nap. It wasn't two minutes after laying the red head down that I heard it. After having a little coughing spell, the red head got rid of his lunch. Oh great, I said to myself. I cleaned up the bed, put his cloths in the washer, and got him a bath. The stuff was everywhere...on his arms, his legs, even his hair. But, after the bath he felt much better. I had him lay down with me on the couch. He finally got his nap, but it took some work!

My son actually went down for a nap today as well. He usually takes a nap once, maybe twice a week. So, it was incredible that he even went down and it was before 3pm! I was so excited that I took a nap as well. I think I deserved one after dealing with the boys today.

Life is grand with naps!!!

Funnies For The Women

Woman's Revenge
"Cash, check or charge?" I asked, after folding items the woman wished to purchase. As she fumbled for her wallet I noticed a remote control for a television set in her purse.
"So, do you always carry your TV remote?" I asked.
"No," she replied, " but my husband refused to come shopping with me, and I figured this was the most evil thing I could do to him legally."

Cigarettes and Tampons
A man walks into a pharmacy and wanders up and down the aisles. The sales girl notices him and asks him if she can help him.
He answers that he is looking for a box of tampons for his wife. She directs him down the correct aisle. A few minutes later, he deposits a huge bag of cotton balls and a ball of string on the counter.
She says, confused, "Sir, I thought you were looking for some tampons for your wife?
He answers, " You see, it's like this, yesterday, I sent my wife to the store to get me a carton of cigarettes, and she came back with a tin of tobacco and some rolling papers; cause it's sooo-ooo--oo-ooo much cheaper. So, I figure if I have to roll my own ............ so does she.

Wife Vs. Husband
A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word. An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither of them wanted to concede their position. As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically, "Relatives of yours?" "Yep," the wife replied, "in-laws."

Words
A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day... 30,000 to a man's 15,000. The wife replied, "The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men...
The husband then turned to his wife and asked, "What?"

Creation
A man said to his wife one day, "I don't know how you can be so stupid and so beautiful all at the same time." The wife responded, "Allow me to explain. God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me; God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you!

Night With An Old Friend

Last night for mommy's night I met an old friend at our favorite restaurant-Wendy's. She was my best friend in high school and we would go to Wendy's at least once a week after school to share a frosty and fry. We were able to get together last night, after not seeing each other for over two years, to catch up. We had a great time!

It was wonderful to be able to see her. We spent so much time together while in school even though we were a grade apart. Everyday after classes we would go out to my car and listen to music and gab. She was even a bridesmaid in my wedding.

After the wedding, we kind of drifted apart. She had her life another county away and I had my new married life. We emailed each other at least once a week, but that stopped after a while. So after a few years of no communication, I decided to send an email her way...better late then never! Heehee!!! We then decided that it was finally time to see each other again. I just hope it's not another two years before we do this again.

Life is grand when spending time with an old friend.

Miss Independent

Here's the thing...I don't like asking people for help. This Friday I go in for my dye test. I know that it can be painful and that I should have someone drop me off and pick me up. But, I would love to be able to take care of myself and not have to rely on someone else to help me.

What if I have someone pick me up but I am actually able to drive? I would feel horrible for having that person come out of their way to pick my butt up. I don't want to waste anyone's time.

I know that my hubby is worried about this Friday. He really wants me to get a ride to the hospital. His grandparents have even offered, but I haven't given them a definitely response yet. I just don't want to inconvenience them. They are already watching my son for me. But like I said, my hubby is worried. He has even called up the grandparents(without telling me) to make sure that they will take care of me.

I just want to be able to take care of myself. I am not one to complain about pain and I am a fast healer. I want to be able to do this myself. But, I think I need to get over my stubbornness and just relent to having a chauffeur for the day. I guess life is grand that way.

Blogger loelsh said...

You shouldn't feel bad about asking them to drive you. Sometimes we just need to ask for help even if we don't want to. No shame in that. If you need me to help with anything, just ask.

Blogger Trinity13 said...

Thanks for offering to help.

I have actually been reading up on the HSG test and about women who have had to go through the it. Most of them were able to drive themselves home afterward(as long as they took some Advil before hand). I think I might ask the grandparents to keep the boy at their house and I will drive myself home a take a nap. I guess it all depends on how I am feeling afterward.

Oh Yeah, Weigh In

I am STILL in my plateau. I have lost 0 pounds, but at least I have not gained any weight. I think this week will be easier since my visitor has left for time being.

I really need to get out of this slump. Maybe I should just put the weight loss on hold for right now. I did last year. I started out on a diet at the beginning of the year, just like this year. By April I needed a break after losing close to 40 pounds. I started back up two months later with renewed motivation. I ended up losing a total of 52 pounds. So maybe I should do the same this year.

Life is grand when your weight is plateaued!

Thanks Guys

I wanted to send a big THANK YOU to my hubby G and Guru for working so hard today. They built my son's new, and first, swing set. It looks wonderful!!!!

While they were busy, my son, my nieces(Guru's kids), and I got to jump on the trampoline. We had a lot of fun and we even "supervised" the guys...heehee.

After spending so much time out on the trampoline, I have decided something. I am going to stop watching what I am eating(at least not be so concerned about it and just eat healthier) and just jump everyday. Like I mentioned before...there was one summer where I ate whatever I wanted and just had fun on the trampoline everyday and I lost 30 pounds without realizing it. I want to do that again. I am getting a little burnt out on doing Tae Bo and being hungry, so I will try this new workout for a bit to see if it works. Wish me luck!

(Btw, not my kids)

So Tired

I think that the medication I started this week is making me really tired. I could barely keep my eyes open all day and I was also quite nauseous this morning(gotta love side effects). But the good thing is that I only have to take it for another three days. It's to help fight off a possible infection from the die test I will be taking next Friday. The test will make sure that my tubes are not blocked. If they are, the die could cause an infection. So, I am taking this 5 day med to prevent any infection.

I have to get this test done at the hospital instead of my doctor's office. I really hope everything goes okay and that I will be able to drive myself home. I've heard that the pain can be pretty extreme afterward.

If this test shows no blockage, then I will start the Clomid. Then the side effects will really begin!!! So exciting!

(Ahhh, sarcasm.)

I Am An ISTJ

When I first visited Nina's blog, I noticed that she has this really cool link to find out your "bloginality". I took the 4 question test and it gave me the result of an ISTJ-Introvert, Sensor, Thinker, Judger. I think this outcome fits me perfectly. Here are some of the traits it gave me:

-Value tradition, security, and peaceful living
-Will work long and hard to fulfill duties
-Can be depended on to follow through on tasks
-Loyal and faithful
-Stable, practical and down-to-earth
-Family-minded

Another One From PJ!

I was getting ready for work when I looked out the window and saw a crew from the utility company starting to erect a pole in front of my house. The crew was going to position it directly in front of my picture window.

No way, absolutely no way was I going to permit this. I gulped down my last bit of coffee and went directly to the crew supervisor and told him in no uncertain terms that I was not going to permit his crew to put that stupid electrical pole directly in front of my picture window.


He took out a plat map, a map for pole locations and a right-of-way document and explained that it is the best location for it. I told him it is not the best location for me and when I came home from work that day I did not want to find that pole in front of my window.


I told him I didn't give a hoot where he put it but not in front of my window. I felt pretty smug as I drove off to work because I felt I got my point across. I know darn well he was afraid to put it there now.

Ah..... the feeling of power............at least until I got home!!!!!!!

Busy, Busy

The hubby and I had a very busy weekend! After sleeping in till 11(I love it when it's my weekend to sleep in!!!), I finally got myself out of my warm bed. I got dressed in some grubbies and headed outside to mow the grass. I just love to mow...really! It's great exercise and I love looking back over my work and feeling a great sense of accomplishment.

After mowing, my hubby and I decided to set up our new trampoline. I bought one during the day after Thanksgiving sale last year. So, my hubby and I had to store it plus the safety enclosure net for over 4 months. It was worth it because of the $80 we saved compared to the prices trampolines are now.

Anyway, we spent less then an hour setting up the trampoline just to spend the next several hours putting up the net. It was hard work!!! The instructions were very complicated and we had to have everything just so.

Four hours later our trampoline was complete. We let our boy jump for a little while before our hunger got the best of us. Since we worked right through lunch, we were starving...and very sun burnt. My hubby's neck is bright red. The back of my knees, part of my face, and my arms are also bright red. It could have been a lot worse, but fortunately we wore hats all day.

After getting up too late for church the next day, the hubby and I decided that the house needed some work...so the spring cleaning began. He tackled the dusting and sweeping while I cleaned the master bath and the kitchen. I even cleaned on top of the fridge and the trash can! Then, while I was organizing my bedroom and swapping out winter cloths for summer, my hubby worked on the yard and the drive way. He and a friend are sealing it this week.

We had another long day that didn't include lunch again. The hubby and I finally had to stop around 7:30 to get some dinner and some more storage tubs. We ended up buying four tubs and I filling three and a half of them! Talk about a lot of stuff!!!

Ahhhh, we were so tired last night. But, we both felt great knowing that we got so much accomplished over the weekend. Life can be so grand that way!

What a great list! I really liked getting to know you more. I am a Christian but was brought up in a Catholic home. I gave my life to Christ when I was 15. The passion for Him comes and goes. Working through the "manure" will help it grow. Take care. I have been praying for you. :)

Sin City, Yeah Baby, Yeah!

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Sin City is a violent city where the police department is as corrupt as the streets are deadly. In this movie, we follow three stories, the central of which is Marv, a tough-as-nails and nearly impossible to kill street fighter who goes on a rampage of vengeance when a beautiful woman, Goldie (King), he sleeps with for only one night is killed while lying in bed with him.


My hubby and I got to see Sin City last night. And I have to got to say that I loved this movie. It was wonderfully made and I love the comic book look. I also loved the color play.

The movie was very violent, but not as much as another one of my favorites, Kill Bill. Sin City also had a lot of T&A. So, it was a guy's movie all the way.

I would have to say that I love Elijah Wood's character the best. He played Kevin, a woman eating bad guy. I loved how his glasses changed to show his eyes when the light shown on them. He also has some great fighting techniques. He was able to move very quickly and without making a sound. The best part though was the fact that Kevin didn't speak the entire movie. It made him really intimidating.

This movie is definitely not kid friendly or for the faint of heart. You have to like a lot of action and violence to enjoy it. Also, if you were ever into comic books, you would love Sin City.

Clomid Part 2

I got my blood work results back today. (I had to go through that again since the first time was inconclusive.) I was told that my ovulation was borderline, so they are not sure if I am actually ovulating or not. So, Clomid was again brought up.

I am still considering whether or not to go on this drug. I did find a few more blogs today talking about it. The woman were actually very positive about Clomid. Quite a few of them had full term pregnancies. I also found some discussion boards talking about the drug with many more successful birth stories.

A very good friend of mine, PJ, will be taking this drug shortly. This is something we could so together. If we have the side effects, we will experiencing them together! How fun would that be?! I think taking risks like this is always more fun with a friend.

So in other words, I think I have decided to go ahead and take Clomid. If nothing happens in three months, I will stop. But, at least I will have a friend with me along the way.

Thanks PJ!

Guys Night In

I got to host guy night last night. They loved the turkey-meatball subs I made for them. And, they also loved the flavor of ice cream I bought-Fried Ice Cream. I had a little of it myself, and I was soooo very good...but very fattening with 220 calories per serving! Then I went into the computer room so that they could have their time together. They used to go out to eat, but that just got to expensive. Instead they go to a different home every week. I get to have them over every third week...and I just love playing hostess.

The group of guys started this up last year right after my mil passed away. My hubby wanted to spend some weekly time with his dad and the night is free to any man who wants to join them. They love getting together, away from the responsibilities of life, and just hanging out.

I want to encourage all you wives out there to also let your hubby's have a guys night out. They work just as hard as we do(most of the time, heehee) and they deserve some time to themselves. I wanted to let my hubby know that I appreciate the time he does spend with me by letting him out of the house once a week. In return I get a happy hubby and it makes the time we do spend together more enjoyable.

He has to get up early every morning, drive himself to a crappy job, do manuel labor, drive home in traffic, and spend time with the family in the evening. I actually force him out of the house so that he can have a break. He does so much for our family that he needs some time for himself. That way he doesn't get burned out.

I think he loves it that I let him go out once a week by himself. He also loves it that I don't hassle him about it. I want him to have a good time with no concerns about staying out to late or being with his friends.

Life is grand for my hubby with guys night!

I agree. We all need time "away". Too bad my hubby has school until 9:48pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays, or he could join them on guy's night. Of course then I could only hope that I could have a girl's night out as well.

Yes Lo, you need a night to yourself. I get to have Monday nights all to myself! It's really great to get out and have my hubby watch the boy for me. That is why I love having him go out to. It's only fair you know.

Why couldn't your hubby go out on a non-school night? He doesn't have to join my hubby to have a guy night out.

April 06, 2005 6:02 PM

 
Blogger loelsh said...

He is more than welcome to go out any night he wants to. Right now, however, his schedule is very full between work and school, that he chooses to not take the extra time away from the family and he is also usually tired in the evenings. It is by no means because I don't want him to go out. Every time he says he wants to go out with the guys or whatever, I encourage him to go. It is completely up to him when he wants to go out.

April 06, 2005 6:48 PM

 
Blogger Guru said...

My schedule is very full right now, but we might have to try and set something up for ourselves, since you make it sound so fun.

We couldn't each have a day, though, my schedule is far too busy for that. What we might have to try is having one day and trading off weeks instead of days.

At least until summer, when I probably won't be taking classes.

Clomid

I visited my ob-gyn yesterday to discuss my blood work results. She talked about me possibly going on Clomid to regulate my cycles. I am definitely not sure about this. I have recently been reading up on this drug and I have not been impressed. Sure, the drug works...sometimes. But, taking the drug actually decreases a person's chances to conceive! How crazy is that?

I have gone through some infertility blogs and everyone who has taken Clomid have not gotten pregnant. They also had some terrible side effects. Most of the woman had really bad hot flashes and cramps. But, in other blogs the woman suffered through the side effects to conceive...and then lose the baby. I don't want to go through that!

I am just not sure if Clomid is worth it. If I decide to give it a try, my doctor will only let me use it for three months. If I am not pregnant at the end of that time, then I will go off the drug.

So, my question to you is...should I risk the side effects(ovarian enlargement, hot flushes, abdominal-pelvic discomfort/distention/bloating, nausea and vomiting, breast discomfort, visual symptoms, headache, abnormal bleeding, intermenstrual spotting) to possibly become pregnant? Do you have any advice for me concerning this drug? Would I be a crazy person to go on Clomid?

I honestly don't have any advice for you. All I can say is that I know a girl (from Logos) that had a difficult time conceiving and started taking clomid and got pg the first month. I will pray for you guys that you will make the right decision, whatever it may be.

Back To The Daily Grind

I am back to my normal schedule this week. The one year old's mom is done with her school's spring break, so I have her son with me again. It was kind of nice just having my own plus the red headed two year old for a week. But, my break is over and I have to get used to having three in my care again.

They are pretty good boys, for the most part. The red head bit my son on the arm earlier today, but besides that, they have been good. They play very nice together except when they steal toys from my son. That's when I get to hear a nice shrill scream. Good times, good times.

On a side night...I went grocery shopping last night and picked up a great find! It was a box of cereal with an awesome Star Wars toy inside. Being the SW dork that I am, I quickly grabbed the last box from the self. As soon as I got home, I opened the box. I just couldn't wait to get out the toy. After putting it together I had myself a lightsaber spoon!!!...and a blue one at that!!! Ahhhh, I love it!

Btw, I will be a good mommy and let my son borrow it once in a while to eat his cereal with it...if he is careful!

(Not my cereal bowl, but the only pic I could find of a lightsaber spoon. Cool, huh?!!!)

Monday's Weigh In

Yes!!! I finally finished the first online challenge and lost 40 pounds by losing the last 2 this week! I thought I would never get past those last few pounds.

We shall see how the next few weeks go with the next challenge of losing the most by the end of April. I would love to win, but I am not getting my hopes up. The last two weeks of the month I will be retaining water because of an up and coming visit. It's so much harder to lose weight at that time of month.

I also don't think I will win since I have lost a little motivation. One of my own personal goals was to be able to fit into a size 10. Well, I met that goal and surpassed it. I was able to fit into a size 8 in jean shorts last week...and they fit great! They weren't too tight and the zipper went up without me sucking in. I would have bought them, but I didn't want to spend $14.95 on them(and that was the sale price!). That is just too much to pay for a pair of shorts(in my opinion). So, I left them at the store to be bought another day. Oh well.

Life is grand when you go from a size 16/18 to a size 8!

Oh, that is so awesome! I've been waffling in my weight loss efforts. You've provided me some needed motivation to keep working at it. Good for you! *happy dance* :)

A New Blog

Recently I have seriously considered starting a new blog. I plan on keeping this one, but I don't feel free enough to be completely honest. Sometimes I rant and get in trouble. Other times I talk to honestly about my marriage, and I later regret it since my own hubby reads this.

I want to be able to keep my identity completely secret with no relatives reading my blog. That way the new blog would actually serve as my own personal diary/journal. I would be able to say the things on my mind without embarrassment.

Does any of this make sense? Is it wrong to have something of my own that no relatives(even my hubby) can read?

Nope, not wrong at all. As a matter of fact, It's probably a great idea. I know it has been nice for me.

that makes perfect sense. i was thinking of doing the same thing but just haven't found the time yet. Just make sure you send out the new addy to those of us loyal -non relative- readers. ;-)

I have thought about having an alternate blog a couple of times, to have someplace for anonymous rants, but then I realize how expressing some of those negative thoughts would effect me. They have in the past, and not just by getting in trouble by people close to me reading them, but by how my whole outlook on life/my mindset was changed for the worse.

The stuff I would want to express in complete secrecy is mostly, if not all, bad stuff. That's why I haven't set up a private blog. I'm afraid it would not only not be therapeutic, but instead, cause my own internal negativity to grow, if that makes sense.

You make the decision though, if you think it would be good for your mental health, and you have the time then do it. I don’t think I’d give the address out to anyone at all though, if I were you.

Some folks do keep online journals that are completely private; where no one else can even read them, much less leave comments. That’s the way I’d do it if I kept a journal of my own.

These are just my thoughts on the issue. Please take them for what they’re worth.

She's Home!!!

Finally, I was able to pick up Miss Kitty from the vet. Since she was a larger cat, she had to stay an extra night. But, I was able to pick her up at 9 this morning.

She doesn't look her best and her paws have changed from white to brown. After a week, she should be back to her normal ornery self. I'm just glad she is finally home!

Trash Picker

The other night I noticed the trash of the neighbors across the street from me. They were throwing out some great stuff! I usually don't go and steal things out of other people's trash, but I just couldn't help myself. They were getting rid of this really cute(and only gently used) outdoor play cube that had a slide. I quickly snatched it up before anyone noticed me. While grabbing the play cube, I also caught sight of a little picnic table. So, I ran the play cube back over to my house and went back over for the table.

I made sure to go out late to make sure that no one would notice me. If anyone looked out their window around 11:30 at night, they would have seen a crazy woman in her pajama pants digging through the neighbor's trash. Ahhh, the things I do for my kids summertime happiness!

OMGosh! That is too funny! My mother-in-law does stuff like that all the time. She comes up with some great stuff! She has even gotten us a bedroom set for free (not from the trash though). What a hoot! BTW, got here from my buddy Nina's site.
