I'm in so much pain!

I've been working out with a trainer for a few weeks now. She's gotten good at "beating me up" so to speak. I'm so sore right now. I don't know what I'd do if I had that painful foot condition in the heel and arch area called Plantar Fasciitis. It would be the straw that would break the camel's back. I'd be officially sore everywhere. Sigh...I love the pain though, not in some sadistic way, but I love that it means I'm getting stronger.

More about being out of town

I was talking to my dad while we were visiting and he's been thinking about trying a new type of law. He's a lawyer and has done a bunch of different kinds of law. He's never been part of a group of cerebral palsy lawyers or anything. But he's done bankruptcies, divorces, will, criminal stuff, mining stuff and probably a bunch of other stuff too.

Speaking of husband has court tomorrow. A semi driver drove him off the road awhile back. So of course he gave the guy a ticket. Now the guy is fighting it in court with a lawyer. drive a state trooper off the road then fight it. I have a feeling this guy will be disappointed. At least I hope he will.

Wow, it's been a week

I can't believe it's been a week since I posted here. Sometimes time flies. This last week sure has. We went out of town. We were having so much fun that before we knew it, it was time to come home. always end too soon. We ended up getting a "new" car while on vacation. Very cool! So while we won't be needing to check out new life insurance rates anytime soon, it looks like we'll be needing to check out new car insurance rates. We're excited. It's 3 years newer with fewer miles. I'll miss some of the features of our old car, but dang it...this one is nice!

Too many times

I think we went to Car Toys too many times. For awhile there we were going every time we went into the Springs. My daughter would have a blast playing in the room with all the speakers and stereos. I spent my time chasing after her while my husband discussed cell phones with the salesmen who wanted a sale and would try to get him to buy anything and everything having to do with cell phones. They probably even tried to sell him cell phone amplifiers. We haven't been back since we bought our phones, but when we were in the Springs a few days ago our daughter started begging to go there. She wanted to play in that "magical" room again. Poor girl, we have no plans to go there again anytime soon.

I did a stupid, stupid thing today

I washed a diaper. It was a clean diaper...I think. But when I went to switch the laundry over there were these weird little gel things all over, then I saw the bloated diaper. Oh my! I had the laundry sitting next to the changing pad and I had some diapers there. One must've gotten stuck in the pile and ended up in the wash. It was a mess cleaning up those gel bits. Lesson learned, I will never, never do that again...I hope.

Heading out of town

We'll be heading out of town soon to visit family that we haven't seen in forever. But one thing we're lacking is good luggage, like Delsey luggage. Seriously, you should see the sad state our mismatched luggage is in. Suitcases fraying and falling apart. Bags with missing handles. Oh my...we look so poor when we travel, it's a miracle we don't have people tossing us quarters and singles out of pity. Hahaha!

The sad thing is, I don't see us getting nice luggage anytime soon. It's just so low on our priority list, which is sad. I also want nice pillows and sheets. They're low on our priority list. Stinkin' debt!

Women's Halloween Costumes Question

I just have a little rant/question here...

Why are almost all women's Halloween costumes sexy? I don't want to wear a sexy costume, no one besides my husband would even want to see me in a sexy costume. But anytime I look for costumes they're all sexy. Gah!!!

That is all.

I hurt!

Ok, so I started meeting with a trainer a couple times a week. I'm really trying to get in shape. It's a huge struggle for me. I suppose I could get some diet aids like Stacker or something, but I'm trying it the good ol' fashioned way. I was just diagnosed with a thyroid problem though, so I do have medication for that. But that's not a diet aid, that's more of a "my body is betraying me and I'm fixing it" kind of aid, you know?

But right now I am in agony!!! We worked legs yesterday and now every single time I move it hurts. Sitting hurts worse than standing, go figure that one out. Gah! But hey, I'll be stronger if nothing else, right?

Gift ideas

The holidays are right around the corner and that means it's time to get shopping for all kinds of gifts. I always worry that the person I'm shopping for won't like what I'm giving them. I love getting gift baskets though, so sometimes it's fun to give those because I already know that at least one person likes them. Is that wrong that I choose things that I'd like too?

Homemade Teething Sticks

My little one is teething right now and is beyond miserable. I'm tempted to try this recipe for homemade teething sticks that I found online. I feel so bad for her. It's her molars that are coming in and they look so huge next to her other little teeth.


Whoops! I haven't posted here in a few weeks. I've been really busy with my other two blogs. But really, I need to find a direction for this one. I need to work on HTML to make it look different. I need to figure things out with it.
