Bah Humbug!

Another Monday. It's always hard for me to peel myself out of bed on Mondays. I spent just a few moments (2 hours)more to savor my nice comfy bed-even missed my chisel class at the gym today (oh darn).

Although I did stay fairly busy in the office today, it was somewhat uneventful. To top it off, it's raining, and will be for the remainder of the week. Already praying for the weekend.

Nurse Cher On Duty Again

Oh, man. Kevin has been up all night using the bathroom and throwing up. At first it seemed as though he's gotten food poisoning from dinner at the Greek place last night. Since he and Roddy ordered the same food, I called Roddy today to check on how he was feeling. Hmmmmm, feeling fine. Perhaps a nasty stomach virus Kevin has caught? Apparently, there are others here who have had the same symptoms, lasting about 24 hours. Just in case, I tried not to linger in the bedroom with him too long. Instead, I would just pop into the room to check on his temperature and encourage some Gatorade to keep his fluids up. He was looking pretty rough.

Anna and Chris visited from Georgia this weekend. Her family was surprised yesterday with the news that they would become grandparents again this summer. They came over this evening to chat over dinner and catch up. Another relaxing, laid back evening--which is just fine with me!

Kevin's finally eating his first meal for the evening. I think he's beginning to feel a little better.

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun??

I am so over drinking and partying. I went out with a girlfriend downtown last night, and neither of us were in the typical downtown mood. Originally, we were to go see "American Hi-Fi" and "Bowling For Soup". When we got there, the line was completely wrapped around the building. On top of that, we found the concert was an all ages show and majority of the crowd was between the ages of 15-18. I was feeling pretty old at the point, and decided to leave.

Deciding to continue our evening downtown further proved the lack of my energetic youth. Clubs and drinking are no longer my thing, and we decided to eat dinner and chat. Following dinner was coffee and dessert at Kaminski's and more girl-talk. By 10:30, we were winding down and stopped at the bookstore to pick up some new reading material before going home. Actually, I enjoyed my evening. I often wonder if it's marriage or my age causing me to settle so much. Whatever the case, I actually had a good time last night. After all, how often do I get to have any girls' only quality time?

This Valentine's Day Present Sucks

Today, I am officially an "Old Married Woman." Kevin and I went out shopping last night, and I was to pick out any Valentine's Day present I wanted. New diamond earrings? What about that diamond bangle bracelet I've been eyeing? Gucci shoes? Nope, none of the above. I had my heart set out on something else. A new vacuum cleaner?!? Yup.

Erick recently purchased a Dyson vacuum cleaner, and it planted the seed in my head that I needed one too. Our vacuum at home really does a crappy job. My dog's fur is all over carpet-even after vacuuming. I was extremely excited to get it home and try it out. Just from vacuuming my living room and bedroom, I sucked up one whole canister of dog hair. Gross!

Although Kevin was a little hesitant at first about purchasing a gift like this for "my favorite holiday," he decided that he did, after all, say I could have anything. Got the bling? Check. Designer duds? Got that too. A $450 vacuum cleaner? Awww, yeah...I'm rolling with the big dogs now...

Oh my God. I am getting old.

"...Just one of them days, that a girl goes through
when I'm angry inside
Don't wanna take it out on you
Just one of them days
don't take it personal
I just wanna be all alone, when you think I
Treat you wrong, dont take it personal baby baby baby baby
Dont take it personal..."

Do you ever have those days when you're pissed off, and just wanna be pissed off? I'm in a sh*tty mood today, and everything is just getting on my nerves. I don't even want to talk to anyone, or be around anyone today. I think Kevin's taken the hint.

Eat Your Heart Out

They're taunting me.

Valentine's Day is coming! I love love love Valentine's Day, perhaps more than Christmas! I just wish that Valentine's Day were a whole season where everything was decorated in pink and red with hearts for an entire month. Along with all of the frilly girly decorations, Valentine's Day also means sugar! More specifically seasonal heart-shaped Peeps.

Kevin doesn't understand my infatuation with marshmallows, but I just go nuts over them. I swear, I could polish off an entire bag of them if I was in the mood. I actually have to keep them out of the house, to avoid completely sabotaging my healthy eating. I gave in tonight, though, and stopped at the store to pick me up some. Hell, it's a holiday!

Warming Up

I decided to get up early Saturday morning and head off to my dropzone. I knew I wasn't going to jump, but I had the urge to be around my friends and watch everyone have fun. We've had some crappy weather the last few days, but Saturday was absolutely beautiful. It was still cold and windy, but I hadn't seen so much blue sky in quite awhile. It was the kind of weather to make me begin to feel that bug again.

Watching everybody get geared up, and anxiously await the jump plane made me green with envy. Hearing the plane's engine start up and watching it take off made my heart race. I finally started to really long to jump. I kept thinking, "That should be me getting my jumpsuit on." "That should be me adjusting my rig." My friends there have all been so supportive, encouraging my return in the Spring to continue my training. Gotta kick this mental block, it's hindering me greatly. I'm still so horribly lovesick.
