Hitting for the Cycle

Well, hello!

So today was one of those days that justified for me what I'm doing. Some days I think if this was the best idea. I mean, I know it was, it just gets difficult sometimes when you're not making a regular income and have to depend on your other half. I guess it happens all of the time, it's just weird when you've never really lived that way? I don't know. Well that's not the only reason. This summer was hard on me with classes because they were so jam packed. That also made me question if I had any idea what I was doing. Someone who has struggled with science her whole life and now I have to learn all this so quickly?!? Ahhh! Anyways, what I'm saying is I did really well on my micro test, like above 100 percent, and very well on my bio 202 test. It gave me a boost of confidence. Sometimes I expect that I'm going to have no idea what the question is asking me and this time I'm like, "I 100 percent know that answer!" Feels really good!

Just finished a deep vacuum of the furniture. Oh, dogs. There was about 500 pounds of hair in the shop vac. Lovely. Well it's all worth it for those doggies:)

Since we last spoke, I went to Flagstaff to try to convince my brother to go there so we can stay with him when we visit. I think he secretly liked it. I got to hang out with Jessie on Friday night and that was fun. She was having a rough day. It was the anniversary of her husband's death so I was glad that she chose to spend it with me.

This week is flying by! I have to go try on my altered dress on Friday and get my shoes dyed. We also have Brad and Katy's shower on Saturday and I'm bartending on Sunday. I like it so much better than serving but serving isn't too bad. It's just the money!

Anyways, I'm going to finish my lab report, listen to the DBacks (no TV today!), and then we are making pizza and watching Earth. I've been wanting to see that movie forever!

Let's spend it up

Oh man, are my lymph nodes swollen! I'm still in my pj's...yes, it's 2pm. Hey, it's my day off!

Today I did the Wii fit because I was trying to unlock more yoga but after 30 minutes I only unlocked balance games (which I'm terrible at) and strength training (which I did a few of). I felt so great doing my hula hoop and weird exercises and then when I was done felt yucky again!

I suppose I should be doing something a little more useful today...however, sometimes I just need to be okay with lounging! It's so weird how much pressure we put on ourselves to always be busy and always be accomplishing something. I have to tell myself, "Hey, it's okay if all you've accomplished today is taking the dogs to the Starbucks drive-thru.

I am hoping that True Food Kitchen has some drinks on their menu that will "cure" me tonight. I'm dying for a caramelized onion and fig tart and kale salad!

I guess I'll take a shower so when J gets home I'm not in the same clothes:)

I won't just buy you a rose.

Hello. Not a happy camper today. Well, I'm not mad or sad, just feel a cold coming on since yesterday and I've tried everything to make it go away and it's lingering! I rarely, rarely get sick so I tend to freak out when I do. Okay, a cold isn't necessarily "sick" but ya know. This morning I did some yoga and couldn't find my mat (okay, I didn't exactly look for it) so I did it on the carpet of the living room and I had a big dog hair body sweater when I was done.

The last two times I've tried to donate blood I've felt like a cold was coming on. Yesterday, my blood squirted all over the place. It was quite watery. Again, my iron was too low. She told me to have some chocolate covered raisins and spinach to up my iron so of course I obliged on the raisins:)

School is going well. I'm actually enjoying it and not feeling any bit of stress (yet) since it's going so slow! Love it! I'm really enjoying microbiology and am terrified of touching anything when I leave that class.

Have you ever wanted to just move somewhere? Now? Today I have this urge to move to Florida. I think I am just really wanting to visit my aunt and uncle's house there. It's so beautiful and I'm so upset we didn't take more pictures and sit in the backyard more. Hello, the ocean is right there?! Really, realllllly want to go. Then maybe I won't have such an itch to move there. We also may be going to Puerto Vallarta in March with some friends. By then I should have (hopefully) a job that makes more money, as well as more time during the day to work!

Not much upon the horizon. I think this weekend we will be having True Food for dinner, go special shopping, hang with Silvio and Jess and who knows what else. Oh, I have to work Sunday. Might be going to Flagstaff if I don't have to work next Friday. My brother is touring the campus (of course he thinks I can only show him the bars)! Yep, yep.

Alright, fighting with my cold for a few minutes, then off to work!

Can I get a...,
