Mobile Blogger

I'm creeping into the 21st century slowly but surely!  I loaded blogger on my iPhone. Very exciting!

Random Gracie photo. She loves her woobie!

How in the HELL do you update the Picasa pictures?!

I have a slide show on the right of my blog.  I like the photos.  They are nice.

They are also old.

Not THAT old - but older.  I have some really cool recent ones I'd like to add.  And I cannot for the life of me figure out how.

I cannot even find the stupid album on Picasa.

ARGH!!! I feel like Charlie Brown!

Big Girl Panties...AKA being an Adult

I've said it before - and I'm sure I will say it many, many, many more times the older I get...

Getting old SUCKS!

Use to be I'd just think about losing weight and ooh look 5lbs lost!

Now I have to actually be good girl and change my lifestyle.  Cause it's not just about weight - it's about health.

Exercise more, eat less, eat better.  Stop making excuses. Pull your Big Girl Panties (forever forward known as BGP) up and do the right thing.

My cholesterol is up so I need to eat oatmeal every day, take fish oil, eat almonds, walk more, stop eating ice cream.

I love ice cream.

Especially when it's 100 degrees outside.

So this past weekend was not a stellar BGP weekend.

I had ice cream, and pudding.  I also had fajitas.

But I bought some nice and healthy food for the week and I'm pulling my BGP back up and I am getting back on track.  Even if I mess up 2 days I figure if I'm good 5 days I'll be ahead 3 days.

We shall see.

Anyhoooo I'm watching snakes on a plane again.  I have to say it's pretty funny!

Gotta love those B movies with giganormus, mutant animals.

Horrible, Horrible, Horrible Pregnancy Nightmare

I had a dream.

It was a nightmare.

I dreamed that I was pregnant.

Ready to pop pregnant.


I was in a restaurant with people I'm acquainated with thinking well at least I'll have something in common with them now.

And thinking - I can't believe I'm going to be responsible for something for 20 odd years.

And thinking - There goes vacation.

And thinking - At least I didn't get too fat with this baby, I'm 8.5 months and look like I'm 5 months pregnant.

Then waking up and thinking - Thank God it was a dream!

Kids are nice and everything - but I really have zero desire to have one full time.

UGH - I have Barrett's Esophagus

And I don't want it anymore.

My tummy is upset - I have Barrett's and it sucks sometimes.  It could be worse - but I can no longer eat:

  1. Raw Veggies - especially lettuce and spinach
  2. Citrus. I'm not a big citrus fan so I JUST figured this one out.  I had a grapfruit martini this weekend - it was tart and tastee!  But my tummy is still in pain.
  3. Wasabi
  4. I can have dairy but I have to go easy on it.
That's all I've figured out so far.

My stomach is KILLIN me people!  KILLIN me.

It's better than it was on Sunday but hopefully not as good as it will be tomorrow.

I had a weird dream this morning that I had 3 dogs and they were represented by symbols. One kinda looked like this:

To be honest I don't really remember the other symbols but they were similar maybe more cirular. 
So my dogs didn't have the body of a dog in my dream but they were alive and in symbol form.
Maybe I heard some Prince before I went to bed last night? 
I don't remember much more about the dream, except all three of them (my dog/symbols) were laid out on the bed.  And the symbol/dogs were on flash cards.
And yes I did wake up thinking "Wow THAT was weird".  And I remembered it well enough to write about it.
At least I didn't dream about a Zombie Apocalypse.

I've been having a lot of vivid dreams recently.

I know they are vivid because I wake up thinking OMG that was weird!  I need to remember that so I can blog about it.

Well guess what - the dreams, they may be weird enough for me to say that - but apparently not weird enough to remember.

Cause I do not remember a SINGLE one!

meh what can you do?

This weekend we are going to go see KKKKHHHHHAAAAANNNNN!

"They" say this Star Trek movie isn't about Khan - but I don't care I just love yelling out....


You gotta say it twice - because Captain Kirk does...

Nasty Rainy Day

It's 11:30 in the morning here - and it looks like it's 9:00 at night outside.

It's a nasty rainy day and I'm stuck here at work. That SUCKS! I'd much rather be at home in my sun room listening to the rain, watching some Tee Vee, and doing some needle point.

But I'm at work, I have yoga (yes I'm going again today) at 5.15 then I have Pet Patrol at 6.30.


Pet Patrol is one of the greatest things EVER! I found them a few years ago when I was at the Pride Parade here in Houston.

They provide food and vet care for the animals of the elderly or chronically ill. When I found out what they did it astonished me.

Why do you ask?

Because - I never thought about what I would do if I became unable to care for my furbabies due to illness. If I had to let them go I truly believe it would literally kill me. Or kill my will to live - which is the same thing.

So I volunteer, I pack the food one Friday a month then deliver the month's food on one Saturday a month. I also started to get involved with fund raising.

I love delivering and talking to my clients, meeting their furbabies, and feeling like I'm doing something worthwhile.

My husband helps me pack which is nice too because we hang out with the other volunteers and have a good time.

Oh - I just heard that there is a tornado warning - gotta go!

I've been trying to get more fit.  You know so that I don't trip over the bump in the floor, flailing about like that little old lady on the commercial.

You know the "I've fallen and I can't get up" lady.

I'm getting older and it's a BITCH!  Who knew!?  I can't just drop the pounds by running a little and skipping cupcakes for a few weeks!

All you 21 year olds beware - I was skinny, skinny, skinny too....now I'm a middle-aged softly rounded woman (still hot to some though!).

And guess what...you will be too!
So I went to yoga last night - and I am sooo sore today.  And let me tell you - I started doing cross fit and I don't feel anywhere near as fat and out of shape doing that like I did doing the yoga last night.

Yoga kicks your ass.

Just sayin...

Dreaming Again

I had a dream this morning (early). I dreamed that I has poison ivy all over my body. But especially in my right eye, hand, and leg.

When I woke up I was rubbing my eyes. I was really itchy. And I still am - I took the girls for a walk yesterday down by the Bayou. Obviously I'm having some kind of reaction to the grass, the flowers, or the trees out there.


Now if you're reading this - are you itching?

I Work in Crazy Land

I work in a place that rewards crazy.

Two of my co-workers were screaming at each other in the hall this morning.

Apparently this started in front of some vendors they were suppose to be meeting with to finalize a major contract.

Nice -

I'm sure their reps were happy to hear obscenities - mostly the F word - being screamed in our downtown, high rise, offices.

Very professional.

And from what I can see - no one was reprimanded.  Because they are both just bopping around like nothing happened.

Never mind there was a person cowering in my cube to get away from them.

Never mind they actually scared me - I thought they were going to start punching each other - and they had me and the other person blocked in so we couldn't escape.

Never mind that this is the same person a group of us went to HR about a few weeks ago because we think he's crazy.  This same person who I know for a fact a least 2 other people have gone to HR informing them about his crazy ass behavior.  And how do I know about the other two?  Because he (Mr. Crazy himself) told me.

If this project doesn't kick off soon I'm sooo out of here.

Not a fan of crazy.

Nope. Not. At. All.

Bad Blogger, Bad!

I just read my last post... I guess I didn't do very well on trying to post more often!

I have a new job which is good.

Fur babies are doing good.

I'm having anxiety issues which is bad.

I think about dying a lot. Which I think means I have to much time on my hands.

I've been sick with what everyone thinks was the flu and I'm still exhausted from it. I just want to sleep for about 10 days.

I think that is part of my problem, I'm not busy at work, I've been sick, I'm not doing much at home, so I think.

Bad bad bad...

So I'm on a mission to find a new hobby like;

  1. Crocheting - I'm teaching myself and I made a square.  Go me!
  2. Painting - so far I've only done pinots pallet - you know drinking and painting.
  3. I've been looking up law schools, really not into going back to school for 5 or more years part time. So I may just audit classes that interest me.
  4. Pottery?
I am open to suggestions.  I love to craft but have yet to finish anything major. And if I did anything I've worked on is no longer to my taste.  

Yes, it takes me that long to finish anything.

I'm also trying to exercise more. Can't think when you can't breathe.

I dream of winning the lottery. A big life altering lottery.  Cause I just want it handed to me.  I'm like that.

I also dream of:
  1. Being chased down by Mormons (WTF?!) I have no idea where that came from.
  2. My husband dying, after which my sister comes to live with me in a huge mansion that's falling down around us. So we are trying to prop the walls up to keep out... You guessed it!  Wolves!
  3. A big basket ball player grabbing me when I walk in to a room which reminds me of a classroom, there's a party and he dunks me. Like basketball. In a net.
I'm a little crazy. What can I say?
