24 hours later......
I haven't had a smoke in AT LEAST 24 hours....No one is dead. Not even maimed.
I have, however, ran 3 miles and biked about 12.
I'll get healthy one way or another, damnit!*UPDATE* It's 2am......I want a SMOKE!! I won't give in, but people are testing me!!!
How many damn wagon's can one person be on?
So, not only am I on the Weight watcher wagon and the workout wagon, to top it off I went on the patch today to stop smoking....
The fun is never ending!
What the hell...And a garden variety of other boring things..Thank me later
Please, for the love of God,
Tell me why it is that I'm totally sticking to Weight Watchers, joined the gym ( BTW- I ran, well, ok, briskly walked, 2 miles today) And all of the sudden I turned into flippin Betty Crocker? I've made Peanut Butter bars AND No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal cookies this week.
What the Hell?
I didn't have any of the peanut butter bars, but I swiped a cookie tonight. It was screaming "BITE ME" and it had to be punished.
Today, Randy worked from home cause, well, he can, and it snowed and looked crappy out. Who wants to go out in the crap if you don't have to? The Childrens Home Health Nurse came out and gave Faith her second SIGNA shot for RSV
. Grace then decided she was going to be a Dr. and went and listened to all of our heartbeats with my stethoscope, like she saw the nurse do with Faith ( BTW - She weighed in @ 17.9 lbs - She's getting so big! Did I mention she got her 2 bottom teeth?? )
" I'm Dr. Gracie" is all she said the rest of the afternoon, while trying to listen to her sister's heartbeat by placing the stethoscope on her head.
Maybe she'll be a Vet.
Then I went to the Book store and the Gym. If anyone lives in Omaha, I totally recommend Mary's Book exchange on 90th in between Blondo and Maple. I traded in 4 books and walked out with 8 and I only paid $7.50.
Then we went to the Grocery Store.
Super Wal-Mart and Hy-Vee.
I didn't know about these
They even have the WW points on the side of the box.
Super Wally World doesn't carry them, but Hy-Vee had their version of Whips
10 for $3.00 and I wanted to stock up. They also had Weight Watcher dinners 3 for $5.00. So, I found those little sandwiches from heaven resting right by them in the freezer case.
Today, I like Hy-Vee.BUT
only when they have good sales.

There's nothing exciting going on here. It's my day off. I had a nice Hallmark Holiday and I hope everyone else did too.
Tonight, I'm meeting with my trainer at the gym again, and Randy is taking Grace to a play at the mall with some of our other friend's kids.......The excitement is never ending!
and just an FYI - The movie Waiting
, is the funniest thing I've EVER seen! Put it on your Netflix queue! Just make sure you get the unrated version. I was taking back to my 3 months as a waitress at Applebee's. ( Not that we EVER did anything like they did, though) . Ahhh, good times.
I got go run my fat ass on the treadmill.
It's just another Manic Monday
The weekend is over and now it's back to work tonight.
I still have a few hours for freedom so I'll write about the weekend.
Friday night we went to dinner by ourselves!!! We held hands and talked about meaningless stuff. It was great. Then we went grocery shopping...On a Friday night. Randy says that's a sure sign that we're old, but that's ok.
Saturday, Randy took Grace to see Curious George and I stayed home with Faith and cleaned. I mean, I dusted and everything! WOO HOOO! When did I become such a nerd?
Then when Randy got home I went and toured 2 different gyms.
I joined New Lady Fitness. No meatheads, No makeup. I LOVE IT!
They even offer FREE Mommy and Me Swim classes on Wednesday mornings. Grace and I will be starting that next week. they have daycare and I got a FREE personal trainer. She worked my fat ass yesterday. It was AWESOME!
It was more money than I've ever spent on myself EVER
. I felt kinda bad and I cried when I was talking to Randy about it.
But that husband of mine is Stellar. He's supportive. I'm a LUCKY woman. So, I guess I've forgiven him for drinking my last Diet Sunkist last week.
Yesterday, we visited with my parents and then went and visited my Grandpa. As I was sitting there talking to my Grandfather, I wished I could come visit him more. He's one of the funniest men EVER. He was so cute, rocking Faith the whole time we were there.
Life is good, people.
Life is good.
* Did I actually just write a whole post and not complain about anything?
"If the Divine master plan is perfection maybe next I'll give Judas a try trusting my soul to the ice cream assassin .
Once again, SPARK
is stuck in my head...I'm blaming Randy this time cause he changed it to his cell phone ringer. My current ringer is "Giggity Giggity GIG-IT-Y!"
Why do I subject you all to useless information?
Anyways, the PMS Roller Coaster was in kinda in slow mo today..For the most part.
So, I've been drooling over this one house for about a month now. It was twice the size of ours and it was in a small town about 45 minutes away. By small town I mean they literally only had 4 different streets. HUGE LANDSCAPED backyard and a rap around porch. I was in love. Did I mention that it was ONLY $94,900.00?
AND it had been on the market since April of 2004.
I guess it's hard to find people that want to move to small towns.
So, Randy called on it today and found out that an offer was already made and they're still waiting 15 days to see if the financing goes through.
I guess it wasn't meant to be.
And honestly, we have a lot of stuff and I hate moving.
I'm looking forword to a nice 3 day weekend with the hubby and kids. Randy and I are going to dinner tomorrow night
. Hell, we even have reservations!!!
I'd like to follow that up with grocery shopping ( with no kids BTW) and a NetFlix movie
Sounds boring, but Yo, it's been a long week.
I forgot to mention....
I STILL feel F-A-T!!!!
I haven't weighed myself in forever!
Ever have one of those days?
And Randy just drank my last Diet Sunkist...
I may OR may not let him live.
Have I mentioned I get to go to work for 12 hours tonight?
Have I mentioned that I get to go back tomorrow for another 12 hours?
Have I mentioned that I applied for an on call psychologist tec job, and now found out it was on hold, but thanks for the interest! Keep checking back!
Have I mentioned that this weekend:
1. We want to take Grace to see the new Curious George Movie
2. I am supposed to go out with one of my best friends that I don't get to see because she works every night that I don't ( we have opposite shifts at the same company).
3. Wanted to go look at this house I've been drooling over for about 3 weeks
None of these are happening..... Please, join me in my own P.M.S. pissy party!
OR, feel free to send Randy
lots of love
Please, sugar free Red Bull, GIVE ME WINGS!
I'll try to post later tonigt at work and give you all an accurate body count, but we've been really FUCKING busy and have had active flights all night the last few nights, so that means no internet ( I dispatch helicopters incase you didn't know...)
I have to go get ready for work.....
So, I was doing a mini grocery shopping trip about an hour ago and my phone ringsMe : "Hello my babies Daddy"( caller ID is a wonderful thing)
Randy: Hello my babies Momma"
( yes, we're ghetto like that)
"Would you like to know what our daughter just did?"Me: "Which one?"Randy:" Grace"Me: " Ok, I give. What did she do?"Randy: " She was in the dining room ,coloring, and Dakota and Rose started fighting..
( 2 of our stupid cats).. She looked at me and said, "Daddy, those FUCKING cats...."ME: "SHE SAID WHAT?!"
Randy: Yup. I even asked her to repeat herself and she said it again, CLEAR AS DAY!"Me: " Wow... I don't think we should let her play with Justin and Jenna's kid anymore.."Randy: " Yeah, un-huh.....I'm sure that's where she got it".
Ok, so yeah. That one was all me. BUT I SWEAR( apparently I do, but that's not the point) That I really try to watch my mouth in front of the kids.....
Guess I need to try a little harder...
Although I may be ghetto fabulous, I don't approve of my kids dropping "F" bombs...
Hell, I'm 27 years old and MY OWN mother doesn't approve of ME dropping "F" bombs
( However, my mother herself dropped one this morning on the phone. I think she was having a bad day...I'm still gonna mark it on the calendar).
Feel free to send me hate mail about the parenting skills I lack...
It's been a few days...I worked all weekend and I'm still wore out.. But for fun ( and in memory of my previous post) please go over to the smack
and check out Peanut butter Ferderline....Too funny....
The post below it
is a classic as well.....
Damn, I seem to be riding on the Smack's coat tails these days...I'm kinda boring though.
Well, I'm off to clean a toilet...The fun is never ending!
Don't hate the player, hate the game...
So, I'm going through my list of celebrity sites, you know, because I'm shallow like that, as well as nosy. I come upon the all holy Celebrity Smack and hey, what do ya know? It's good 'ol Kev-Kev acting like the "special child" that he is ( and yo, I do mean child).
Seriously, this was the most entertaining thing I've seen in AT LEAST 3 days...
Rock on Kev-Kev, in fact- Rock out with your cock out!
Alternate titles to this post:
1.) *(sang in the tune of Salt N Peppa's Whata man)*
Whata douche, Whata douche what's douche, Whata mighty fine douche. Yes he is ya'll...
2.) Now, I ain't sayin' he's a gold digger....But...Ok yeah I am
3.) Sperm Master McTrash sings about the thug life
4.) What the hell is this idiot doing now?
5.) Going for broke
6.) Don't quit your day job..Oh, wait....
7.) PO! PO! PO! PO! means getting ready to go to the poor house cause your wife is gonna leave your dumb ass!
8.) " Turtle, Turtle"
Now, if "ya'll "will excuse me, I have to go get this song outta my head!
Putting things in perspective.............It's a little long, but it's worth it
After a forest fire in
Yellowstone National Park .
The forest rangers began their trek up a mountain to assess the inferno's damage.
One ranger found a bird
literally petrified in ashes,
perched statuesquely on the
ground at the base of a tree.
Somewhat sickened by the eerie sight,
he knocked over the bird with a stick.
When he gently struck it,
three tiny chicks scurried from
under their dead mother's wings.
The loving mother,
keenly aware of impending disaster,
had carried her offspring to the base
of the tree and had gathered them
under her wings, instinctively knowing that the toxic smoke would rise.
She could have flown to safety but
had refused to abandon her babies.
Then the blaze had arrived and the heat had scorched her small body.
The mother had remained steadfast.
She had been willing to die,
so those under the cover of her wings would live.
"He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge." (Psalm 91:4)
Being loved this much should make a difference in your life.
Remember the One who loves you,
and then be different because of it.

Amy is still missing.
I've been thinking of updating my bloggroll and everytime I think about it I can't.
I can't take Amy
I'm actually well past worried.....PLEASE
, if anyone knows ANYTHING
, let me know.
Even if she's done with the blogging world, I want to know she's alright.
The only thing I can come up with is that she lost the baby and it's just too painful to write anymore.
And yo, I understand that. Hell, I've been there.
Her Gmail account doesn't even work anymore.
I just need to know she's alive!
I want her to know she's loved and missed.
Amy, this one's for you...
I can't believe that my baby is 9 months already! It seems like she was just a little 31 weeks premie in the NICU. Time flies!
Whats even better.....Her first 2 bottom teeth just broke through the gums
My heart is breaking!
" I've got a cute face, chubby waist, thick legs, in shape, rump shakin both ways- make you do a double take...."
So , the Biggest Loser auditions came and went on Saturday....I was on the couch with a UTI....Eh, I guess it wasn't meant to be.
I'll just keep to my weight watchers and call it good :o)
I'm not too upset- I don't know if I could leave Randy and the girls for 10 weeks anyway.
Oh, well. What can you do?
Randy's Birthday party was on Friday night.
All I can say is I'm getting WAYYYYY too old for this shit!
I'm not 21 anymore.
When he has his 2nd birthday party ( yes, he's having 2 and he can, well, because, I love him and I think it's ok to celebrate your 29th birthday twice :o) We have friends that couldn't make it because when they work I'm off and when I'm working they're off ) comes around TRUST AND BELIEVE Miss Annie will be drinking Diet Coke on the the rocks....That's it!
And I know I've been slow at posting and I thank everyone for the emails checking on me...I'm fine..Just had the UT and have been really busy at work and haven't had a chance to write.
However, I'm off today and we're taking Grace to play at the mall toddler area tonight. It's always a nightmare...
I'm sure I'll have plenty to write about tomorrow.
What I MENT to ask was are you coming home for lunch......
An actual email conversation I has with my husband yesterday :Randy: I LOVE YOU!!!
Just thought I let you know I was thinking about you...Annie : Are you coming home today?Randy: Nope never...I think I'll stay here at this job I so love and work until my fingers bleed...
Or I'll be home before 1pm...I'm torn really...
:-)Annie: well, let me know what you decide....I'll move my girlfriend in if you stay...I wouldn't want to be lonelyRandy: You won't ever be lonely, because I would never stay here any longer then I had to...
You can still move your girlfriend...lol
