I need one of these

Why do I not have more time in my day? my back basically always hurts....but lately, I want to rip my spine out. Sounds fun huh?

Also, I want to get back in to doing this:

I used to jog almost every day and I was so healthy back then. And by healthy I don't mean thin. In fact I'm only about 5lbs heavier....but I could hike half dome (or anything else for that matter) without batting an eyelash. The last hiking I did about killed me. And it was only about 100 yards of steep uphill. Stupid Asthma. I'm gonna try my darndest. Go me.

My how time flies

Went to dinner with a long lost friend last night. 11 years to be exact. It was good times. She's still as much of a sweetheart as I remember. Thank goodness for Facebook where i have been able to reconnect with so many people. Love it!

So sleepy, trying to get used to the new pad. Do love it though. Can't wait to be ALL moved in and settled. Don't want to move again for a while. May talk to the hubby about locking in a lease for a year so I don't have to go through this again for a while. Can't I just go home and take a nap and not move any more stuff?

Monday, August 10, 2009 favorite....

So, we moved all of the BIG stuff for the most part on Saturday with the help of some muscle (and thanks to the pig flu making it self scarce finally). Thank you Andrew, Ian and Bo. Now we're just moving the rest of our CRAP. And let me say we have a LOT of it. I guess after living in the same place for 4 1/2 years you accumulate a lot of stuff and things grow under your furniture. {gag}

I SWEAR I will not let our current place get so filthy...(talk to me in a year and see if I followed through) It is rather hard to clean, grocery shop, cook and maintain a home when you both work full time. I will prevail! I will be super woman!

Oh goody!

I now have the stupid pig flu too. Dang it. I was hoping I was immune because I had "it" back in February but apparently either I didn't have it or you can get it twice. Poo.

On a happy note, turns out our new place in fact does have a dishwasher and at first we thought it didn't work but it turns out it does. The latch is just tricky. You have to shut it just right. this is great news for me. GREAT. Of course, we are both sick so we haven't even moved one single solitary thing. Boo

Did you hear the one about the bicyclist?

So we just got back from our cruise and it was AMAZING and so fun. I will post pics soon I promise, however if I break that promise. Tough. We're moving this month and let's be honest. Moving is hectic. So anyhoo....short re-cap:

Our cruise started out rocky due to me having the hardest day the day we left. It was just one of those days... so then, as we're pulling out of the ally-way that is our drive way, low and behold SLAM!!! A guy on a bicycle slams right in to the front fender of the Civic and flies on to the hood and then rolls off. And he was fine. Which is good because it was his fault. But we were so shaken up and shocked we didn't care about all the new pretty dents in the car. Just FYI in case you didn't know: It is ILLEGAL to ride a bike on the sidewalk in Cali if your over the age of 14 (or is it 16?). AND he was riding on the wrong side of the road to boot. You're supposed to ride the same direction as the traffic. So that was loads of fun to start our road trip down to Long Beach with our hearts jumping out of our chests.

Saturday: So the next day, Taylor is supposed to drug test two guys down in Hollywood and they no-show. So now we try to decide what to do with our now free day. Tay is just browsing and sees a truck on Craigslist and says "should we go look at it just for fun to pass the time?" Sure, why not? (P.S. We've been looking at trucks for a couple of months but nothing has felt right.) So, we go look at it. It's an '04 Cherry Red, Chevrolet Avalanche. Fully loaded. And it was a smokin' deal. And it felt soooo right. So we bought it :-D Yep, I finally got my dream TRUCK!!!! Yipee. Happy anniversary to me! For those of you who don't know, I was saving to buy one when I met Tay but paid for my wedding instead so this is like the best cherry on top. EVER. So we joke that Tay is my truck. ha ha

Sunday: Tay's 23rd birthday. Happy day! We set sail on our cruise and begin the week of over indulging in LOTS of yummy food.

Monday and Tuesday: 2 days at sea relaxing and enjoying the sun, reding our books by the pool, swimming, shows. Good times.

Wednesday: Puerto Vallarta. We did this excursion: CLICK HERE and it was SUCH a blast!!! It was muy caliente (really HOT) there and super humid, but for the most part we were in the shade under the canopy of the thick rain forrest like area. And the water in the waterfall was NICE and cool. Muy refreshing :)

Thursday: We did all of our shopping in the raping heat of Mazatlan but got some awesome deals and some cool stuff.

Friday: Cabo. You had to be back on the ship by 2pm so we didn't even bother getting off. And from what I hear we didn't miss much. We got to enjoy it from the pool on the deck and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
Later that evening: Taylor starts running a fever, starts coughing and doesn't feel well.

Saturday: Taylor is worse. Fever, chills, Coughing, Body aches, headache... and according to the insert we got at the beginning of the cruise these are the symptoms of the H1N1 virus and we should consult the on-board doctor. So we do. And Tay has Swine flu. Of course he does. Fortunately that last day was at sea and the weather was poopy so we didn't miss anything by staying in bed all day watching movies and Tay got breakfast, lunch and dinner in bed all day. He got to be the lucky winner of the "first and only case they saw on the boat this trip" prize. D'oh!

Sunday: Tay's not doing any better really but the cough medicine and fever reducing pain killers help a LOT to make him functional. We arrive in port at 7am and debark around 9:30am. We go pick up the car and truck and caravan home and make it home (THANKFULLY) incident free :) Tay is able to climb in to bed and rest while I unpack.

So all in all we LOVED our vacation. What's a vacation without it's little bumps right? I'm so fat now. Time to work out and become anorexic. ha ha jk
