Is it just me?

Taking Control

When I was looking through all my pictures for my profile, I came to a profound conclusion. Damn, I looked pretty good back then. WTF happened?!? I know, McDonalds, childbirth and plain old laziness happened. I visited an old college roommate this weekend and she's lost weight since college and looks fantastic. I'm inspired....or maybe just sickened of the flabby outer layer of my body. I'm starting eating healthy today. And exercising. Ugh. It's just so hard to get started. I know that I will feel better once I cut out the dozens of Mt. Dews per week and the junk carbs. I've done it before and I know I will have so much more energy. It's just that I'm too lazy to start. I'm too lazy to do something that will give me more energy. I'm my own worse enemy.

Now for the big decision. I need a motivational picture to put on the refridgerator. Should I use the good picture from the honeymoon(basically, my goal) or should I take a nasty picture of me in a swimsuit NOW? Hmm. Maybe that will make everyone in my family lose weight. They will lose their appetite everytime they go to the fridge. Hey, that's one way to save on grocery money.

Okay, here's the diet plan:
No more white bread products
No more food after 10pm
Eat Breakfast
Quit finishing what the kids don't eat.


I found this video on Lauren's Blog. It goes really quick, so you'll either have to pause it or watch it a few times, but it is definitly worth your time. Send it everyone you know.

Too tired to think straight

Well, my weekend was a good time all around, but now I am zapped. We left for earlier than I planned on Sunday, so we were home by 3:30. I thought I was doing good. Kids were ready for bed early last night so Levi and I were going to have a quiet, early to bed evening. Yeah right. Levi decides to go play volleyball for a couple hours with our church group. They play every Sunday night. No big deal, right? Sure. He comes home early, limping. He came down wrong on his foot and thinks maybe he broke his toe. 2 hours and seven shades of purple later and he's off to the emergency room. He broke his toe AND his foot. Great. I think he has broken about every bone in his body at least once. I don't know how he does it. This is the third broken bone because of church volleyball. Come on, we're not talking about a competitive game here. It's just recreational volleyball. And it's not like my husband is in bad shape. He is completely accident prone. Next time he instists on playing volleyball, I'm bubble wrapping his ass. Ugh.

Heading out for the weekend

I'm getting ready to leave for the weekend. I'm going to visit my roommate from college. We haven't seen each other for about 12 years, so I'm pretty excited. I'm not, however, looking forward to the 4 hour drive with my daughter and step-daughter. Ugh. I'll be back to posting on Monday.

Side note: What the F%#k is up with this banking crap?? I don't know near enough about economics to say much, but what a mess. I don't know the answer, but I have a pretty good handle on the problem. There are some big wigs out there that need to go bankrupt and not get bailed out.

Where to begin

Hmm. So looking back at my initial postings I'm seeing that I basically did junior high journal entries. "I picked out my flowers, I picked out my dress, blah, blah, blah." It kinda made me want to stab myself in the eye. I'm so not like that. I'm not little miss sunshine and roses. I'm deleting those and starting fresh. I'm switching gears and blogging on all those obnoxious opinions I have. All those things I always want to say, but don't. All those things people don't really care about. Now I have a platform to speak my mind. No one can interrupt me here!! I'm SURE (note the sarcasm) you all just can't wait to hear all the things I'm right about. In case you're not sure if you want to stick around for this, here's a basic sample of my opinions. Let me know what you want hear about first and I'll try to be accommodating (don't get use to that).

** Politics - seriously, don't ask me to start here. I'll probably just offend everyone and never get any readers. My generic beliefs summed up in one quickie sentence...I'm a conservative with Libertarian leanings who basically thinks the whole system is screwed up. I hate extremists of all most all forms. (Okay, that was two sentences)

** Religion - I grew up Lutheran and still go to a Lutheran church. I'm set in my belief in Christianity, but that's about it. I'm still exploring and searching. I have an open mind and I don't like the hypocritical nature of many organized religions.

** Guns - keep 'em legal.

** Burger King - sucks b/c they started charging for Ranch.

** Motherhood - The most important job I do. My mom was a stay at home mom and I owe so much to her. I wish I had the luxury to do the same, but I have to work. I'm struggling to do the best I can at both.

** Step-families - SUCK. Not really, but they stress me out. I have two step-kids. I love them, but man to they try me some days. I've done a lot of research on living in a blended family and I'm living it, so I have plenty of opinions here!

** My brother - he's my baby brother by 4 1/2 years. He knows EVERYTHING...just ask
him. Whenever we get together, it usually means sitting in our garage (the only place you can sit and smoke and argue until 4am) and arguing everything under the sun. Mostly politics. He is a liberal and would be communist if he could, so basically we don't agree on much. Add to that the fact that he will argue anything with me just for the sake of arguing, makes all of our discussions a blast.

**My husband - He's freaking hot & I love him, but I still want to twist off his nuts most days.

Alright, enough for now. Trust me, I can spew on about any topic, so bring it on!!

Dig in...
