That Tall Girl


Interesting Morning/Weekend

Nasty rain makes people do funny things, I’ve decided… like pull weeds at 7:30 in the morning, bad weather included. know, it sounds strange but I can’t really ellaborate other than saying it was fun. Yes, I just said that I had fun pulling weeds. But it is a little bit different than when your parents tell you to- so don’t expect anything fancy when I come back home, mom.

… because I went home this weekend. First trip home from college. Guess what I had for dinner my first night home: 2 lean pockets and a 2 serving blue bunny ice cream dish (which I guess was better than what I had last night when I got back: fruit/yogurt, small salad and chocolate cake). I probably shouldn’t complain about the food though since mom did my laundry, bought me clothes (holy smokes i found jeans at wal mart that were long enough and were somewhat proportionate to my huge thighs), bought me random items, cleaned my car (vacuum, rainX, windows), put new windshield wipers on my car, and filled my gas tank (gas was $2.99 !!!)

It was my first big drive by myself, and I didn’t die. The way home was easy-peasy. I hit rush hour traffic in Topeka, KS but I let people pass me and realize that there were cars going just as slow in front of me so it was all good. I payed the tolls just fine too. But the way back. Dang, son. Let’s just start off with saying one of the reasons I got new windshield wipers and rainX was because of the storm that was between me and the university. There were points at which I was going 50 in a 70 zone because visibility/ traffic was that bad. Add to that the semis that were following way too close and changing langes/making walls across the 3 lane interstate sporatically.

I should probably add that I went to my gym twice. Once on Friday, and again on Saturday morning. On friday they didn’t make me exchange my keys for a locker because they know me/ my keys were attatched to my wallet. There was a new guy there (probably to replace gym boy) and he was freaking out when Jason told me I didn’t have to turn my keys in. He was all like “who is she that she doesn’t have to turn her keys in?!” and I’m all like “I’m important around here. Didn’t you get the memo??” not really. But those thoughts were totally flying around the room. And one last thing (because this is getting long) at water aerobics I was the life of the party; ‘cuz I’m cool like that.

Now it’s time for my mid-morning nap.

My First Real Trip to Kohl’s

One fish

Two fish

Red fish

Blu… backpack!

Sorry, I couldn’t help but use the fishies as a shoe in to my new backpack when I saw this shirt. (thanks mom for hiding modeling!)

Now what gangsta wouldn’t want this Tshirt?

While at Kohl’s I got my school shopping done. They had an awesome clearance section- which had just the things I was looking for: (jersey?) knit skirts. I also got some tanks to wear at practice- they were $2.80 each. I know, I’m pretty awesome at finding deals.

I also got a new laptop today- since the pink dell ain’t workin so great. You can see it next to my new baby amongst my new computer garbage:

Yeah, it’s an HP. All my friends but one got HP’s. They all like theirs. Therefore: I got a new HP instead of another silly dell computer. Haha, it was very funny: Dad said, “Now you shouldnt have problems with this one. At least I hope.” Then I thought my baby didn’t come with a charger. Called Dad and bestbuy to complain. Then I found it. Then I couldn’t find my SD card slot. Called Dad to say it didn’t have one (it’s crucial to blogging you know!) then he found it. Then I tried to put in my extended batteru, but I couldn’t get it to fit. Had Dad work on it. Finally I was right: it was the wrong battery lol. Now I gotta figure out how to get the extended battery when it’s not in the stores yet since this is such a new computer and I leave town in a week- and its currently on sale for $60 off.

Now all I’m concerned about is loading the *edited out* security thingy. I might win an iPod if I do this before school! I’m all up for free stuff and deals so if you ever feel like sending me stuff, go right ahead.

*picture edited out*

Sorry for the long post. I think that it could be mainly attributed to my outstanding humor, so your eyes shouldn’t fall out just yet. I’m off to watch more swimming/ get ready for bed. I’m tired and have a busy day ahead of me tomorrow. It will be my last saturday in town and last day of work/ saturday morning water aerobics.



Mimi’s!

I went to Mimi’s Cafe last night with the girls. After being ignored by our waiter for nearly 35 minutes we got a really cool waitress. She even took a group picture of us- but I prefer the one above (and since I’m the boss around here, this is the one I’ll post). Mostly we just caught up, since we haven’t really hung out all summer.

After Mimi’s we went to the park/skate park and played, like we used to do. Last night we hung out around the skating portion of the park, mainly inside of the bowl. That was super fun. You have to slide in- no jumping unless you’re insane. To get out, you have to have a running start, unless you’re me and can reach the ledge w/o trying.

Oh, I think I should add that I changed out of my dress before going to the park. Don’t want it to get dirty do we?

We stayed until about 10:30 and then the cops came. They reminded us what time the park closed, 30 minutes ago, and we rolled on outa there.

I have to say last night was much more fun than today was. After a grouling (sp??) water aerobics class filled with lap work I headed to work where I got to stare at 10 lbs (or maybe 15 lbs- it’s 3 weeks worth) of invoices i needed to file for 8 hours. Um, yah, didn’t finish those. Maybe next week… if I can get to them, of course. What? Last week’s my last week you say? Hmm, there’s not much I can do about that 😉



Holy Moley!

Hey, I ran a bit over a mile today! That is the 1st time in almost 2 years that I’ve been able to do that! I’m so excited to be making progress like this. Sadly, I didnt bring my Nike+ with me 😦 so I cant tell you the exact milage- but I can tell you that I ran for about 20 min! I’m a slow runner- maybe I ran 2 miles?? The instructor only lapped me once… maybe twice…

D, who teaches Thurday night ride and run and then water aerobics had a sub for water tonight. While T was a very nice person, she just wasn’t the same as D. It just seemed to drag.

I’m so tired- I just want to sleep. No more writing

P.S. I havent seen gym-boy all week. Ay Currumba
