I knew that when Kevin would get an Xbox, that he’d be parked in front of the tv for hours at a time.

He is. And I find it very annoying.

your mouth makes mine water..

Spring is here, sweet. Although, yesterday was super humid and reminded me of a wet dog.

I’m eating breakfast and watching VH1. Um, the Counting Crows have a new album out? I never really liked them, they were super whiny to me. But John Mayer on the other hand, Kevin and I have a liking for him… that stupid Wonderland song made me think he was a total puss. Plus, he has beautiful lips that make me want to make out with him. And he does hot shit like this.

IN other news, I’m doing to massages this week. I spent almost $200 on groceries yesterday. I also can’t wait for my IRS rebate?

Why the hell am I so tired?

Running needs shorts.

leave a comment »

Newcastle + running + epsom salt bath = not to shabby.

I have decided that wearing Converse for 8 hours and then putting on my awesome Mizunos seems to confuse my arches. Are we flat and walking in circles? Or are we supported and running on the sidewalk?

I read something about drinking beer after running, I can’t remember what it said… but I’m determined to have one after every running adventure, even if they are still small. Beer is nice.

I drove my normal walk/run course and I’ve discovered that it is almost 2.5 miles. A 5k will be really easy. Sweet.

I really want a pair of running shorts with pockets. I know that they will be very unflattering, but if you choose to look at me when I’m working out it’s your own damn fault. But for my own reasons, I’m so mortified to try them on. I haven’t worn shorts in public in EONS! 10 yearsish? Like I’ve seen plenty of fat folks wearing elastic waist shorts but they have nice or decent legs. My legs are like sausage links covered in spider veins and bruises. Yum-o. I usually wear my awesome black Lucy capris and pants or my not as awesome blue capris… but shorts? I yearn for the days when my legs are a bit leaner! Shorts damnit, I want some shorts and I want them to look okay.

Eew, and I supposed in a few months I’ll need to buy a new swim suit that is more flattering and shows off my boobs… then one I have now is more for swimming laps and has a high neck.

I’ve started to rub calendula oil on to help my skin stuff issues. Plus, who doesn’t love soft skin?

It rubs the lotion on it’s skin or else it gets the hose again….

Sometimes washing my hair seems like such a chore.

After not working out for a few days, tonight we shall run!

5 days are left of April, I’m hoping for sunnier days.

Kevin informed me that this year we need to do day hikes. This is fine with me, last summer he didn’t want to do anything but find a job. I think he forgets that we have totally different days off.

And now that our period is over, the scale had returned to it’s “normal” spot.

Thank you, come again.

Feeling parched! sort of…

leave a comment »

After I made my lovely breakfast of muesli, milk, honey and apple sauce, I decided to wash my hands. I turned on the facet in the kitchen to find that I have no water. Lovely.

When I called the leasing office to tell them they sounded so nice ands all duh! like. “We had to turn it off to work on the pipes.” No warning to this? Even though a lot of people work during the day, including myself, some times we have a day off in the middle of the week or that random day where you get scheduled really late.

And yeah, it will be on in 15 minutes… I have a cold and touched the jar of honey, I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO WASH MY HANDS!

And I want to shower and shave my legs and turn on the dishwasher and wash ALL of my clothes right this minute!

In other news, some dude on The Ultimate Fighter had to go home last night because he had a mad case of herpes on his neck?! WTF? How did you get that on your neck? I used to have a massage client who had herpes in her eye, eek, and that I can understand but neck?

money, money and mo money.

Today Kevin and I opened new mutual funds with State Farm. $100 each a month with the idea to increase it next year.

I also just found out that my small loan with Sallie Mae is paid off! I was paying my Sallie Mae loan and my SLM Financial loan together for a total of $180 a month. My new monthly payment is $110. Sweet. The projected pay off is somewhere down the road in 2017 for the SLM loan, yuck

I will be done paying off my US Dept of Education loan in 4 months. I am paying them about $125 a month while my mom pays them $75 a month for the 2 massages I give her.

So if I add the $200 from the US Dept of Education to the existing SLM Financial, I will pay them off way before 2017 and will be years closer to a house.

Next week I change my car insurance to State Farm as well, saving $25 a month.

THANK GOD.

My money seems to have gotten under control a bit. My credit is next.

All of the sudden 30 just got a lot better looking.

After we get some of this shit under control, we can have some fun… say July.

American life…

leave a comment »

We have 7 and a 1/2 months to find the best damn apartment we can afford. Any other kitchen has to be better than the one we currently have. For some reason my mom seems really bothered by the fact that we’d move by Nov. 30th.

We are now the proud owners of a 37 inch tv and a Xbox. I’m determined not to sit in front of it all summer.

I worked and wasn’t tempted by the crack-o-tastic cookies we sell. And they ordered pizza and I had none. I ate like a piggy all weekend.

I ran again on Friday, bowled on Saturday and worked out again for an hour on Sunday. Today, I’m doing my stupid pilates tape that annoys the crap out of me but gets the job done. What I’d really like is a 2nd sports bra and maybe some clothes to run in that has a pocket.

The end.

I heart my run.

I’m such the novice runner.

But last night I RAN!

I didn’t hurt, I didn’t die. I gave it my all.

And I enjoyed it, even the slight side ache.

I can now see what people get out of it.

I was so thirsty afterward, but I think I finally got it.

I buy the Seattle Times almost everyday. Mostly to do a crossword puzzle but lately I’ve been reading more of it.

I never take the top paper because I’m weird and don’t like having magazines or papers other people have riled through.

So I just looked through my paper so I could do my puzzles and some fuck face already took it out.

How fuck rude and Eastside of you. I hope you get a flat tire on the way home.
