What a week!

I’m certain that I don’t have good luck with computers. The one that is currently (sort of) in my care is #4 since june. Since it’s in the shop right now because the processor has broken we might as well say I’m on my 5th computer. FYI I won’ get it back into my hands for 2 more weeks. Lovely. I’m glad my term paper was eary since it was due today.

Other than computer issues my week has been fantastic. Yesturday I took a 2 hour long nap, then a 20 minute rest, then another 20 minute rest all through out the day. I also did some yoga.

Let me rant about yoga. Usually I’m not a fan of yoga. I guess I haven’t had the right instructors/mindset. Normally I can’t wait for my 60 minutes of torturous poses to be finished, but yesturday I wished it would have lasted longer. Why? Because it was almost all stretching. I can’t even begin to tell you how great I feel today. I’m limber again. I can pop my back with a simple twist. I can put on socks with out feeling like it’s some great ordeal. Yoga is amazing. I love love love it.

I love it so much that I might just have to start going to the rec a bit more. Or I might take a class, you know, so I can learn it better- like from the beginning. I think it would be fun to get to a point where I can balance like a tight rope walker and twist into crazy shapes… or just plain relieve all of the tension bound up in my hamstrings.

Speaking of classes, I have revised my class schedule for next semester:

  • Advanced Conversational Spanish
  • Spanish Composition and Grammar
  • Public Speaking
  • Human Development
  • Basic Nutrition

Needless to say, I’m super duper excited for all of these classes. My spanish classes will only get me thismuchcloser to being fluent(er). My speech class will be super fun because it will be so easy (I took speech 1 & 2 in high school). Human development- I’ve got lot’s of friends in there that talk about it. It sounds so cool, it’s like the sociology and biology of life mixed into one. And nutrition- easy peasy, interesting, and something that will definitely stay with me later in life.

Since I’ve changed topics like 56760 bajillion times I think it’s time for me to sign off, not to mention the fact that I’m in the library awaiting a call. Hasta luego amigos.



Bad Day- That’s It

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a bad day. I need to vent- bear with me.

This morning I work up early thinking I would need to go into work early since the kids’ swimming was probably going to be cancelled just like B’s swimming. When I walked downstairs I found out that *edited out* was kit by a tornado last night. I have orientation and enrollment (freaking out about this one!) tomorrow=how lovely. (the wind erosion lab was the only building destroyed lol) I got ready and went to the gym at 7:30 am. I finished my workout at 8:35… or so I thought. Called the family. The kids still had swimming. Not a big deal except that I was across town(by their house, at the gym) and had to occupy myself for 2 hours before going in to work. Thank the Lord for classes at gyms. Went to a nice, easy yoga class.

Ok, at “work” now. The kids were really well behaved today :). We went to CVS pharmacy so the kids could get some candy. Some stupid guy almost Tboned me in the parking lot. Freakin-a, just leave me alone. We had some lunch- mine was terrible. Yes the one I posted a pic of last night. Sandwich- yuck. Frozen strawberries- no flavor. Tea- provoked the gag reflex. Plus I was super hungry today- because I was so emotionally distressed (it wasn’t as bad as some days but it was no picnic).

After nannying I got to go to my other job- starving! Got a lunchable at Quik Trip. I saw Megan- I miss talking to her everyday in calc :(. Got home from work (I had a 12 hour day) and this awaited me:

A 2.5 hour old (as in on the counter that long) hamburger patty. Would you eat that?! I hate hate hate coming home from work and not having any good food. I had to eat this:

At least I had this- actually I changed my mind and had strawberry instead.

As I am writing this from my basement the tornado is in our area and I can’t go to bed. I’m tired and cranky. At least it was pay day.

EDIT: I just realized that I haven’t seen gym boy all week. Oh no. And I didn’t get to go to water aerobics tonight: my fav class of the week.
