And...I'm back!

So, I'm not so sure what's been going on with me and blogging here lately...but it is safe to say I have been a real slacker when it comes to typing out all these crazy thoughts! So since it's been awhile, here are some updates!

~We are back into the football swing of things. Mr Ski has practice Monday-Saturday and games to coach on Monday, Thursday and Friday. Shew! For a girl who NEVER ever watched football I sure do watch a lot of it now. And surprisingly enough, I don't mind! Now, I won't turn on a football game on tv if it's just me (my dvr holds much more enticing things!) but I definitely don't mind going to games and especially since I'm getting to watch Mr. Ski coach. He loves it so much and I can tell, it's so awesome to watch him!

~I've joined SparkPeople. I love it so far, probably because I sit in front of a computer all day so logging my food is easy for me to do. I've lost some poundage since joining so that's always a bonus. I really need to get back into shape but I'm having a hard time giving up my mornings. I love to sleep and right now the thought of exercising and not sleeping makes me want to wimper. haha. I started Jillian's 30 day shred and made it through two days....pathetic. I'm going to have to start that again but now I'm dreading the soreness.

~Labor Day just passed. All I can really tell you of the weekend is that I slept A LOT! I'm not sure when the last time was that I've slept that much but I can tell my body needed it. I've just been so drained lately...and craving hot sauce (which is odd). Mr. Ski asked me the other night at dinner while I was drowning my taco in hot sauce (which I never do...) if I was preggers. Hmm...guess I need to pick up a test. I hate buying pregnancy tests for numerous reasons:
1.) I'm always embarrassed. I don't know why, but I am.
2.) I think it's absurd that they charge that much for a stick you pee on.
3.) I am never confident in their results which makes me want to buy a different brand of stick to pee on.
4.) There is no easy, non splatter, way to do it!
Results are pending. (Since I am unable to ignore directions when it comes to these things and I'm waiting for my next morning pee since I forgot this morning.)

~Gidget has gone to live with Edward. I'm not able to talk in detail about this without crying. I know she is much happier, I know that it is for the best, I know that Gidget is very therapeutic for him but I just can't help but be sad when I think about it.


  1. Oh, you can always get a clean cup and pee in it and then dip the stick into it. That's a lot easier. And, um, let me know, eh?

  2. I do the same as Kori. And yes, for some reason I was so embarrassed buying them too. Note-you can get them at the dollar store but not sure how reliable they are. I like digital. Ok that was enough about HPT. Looking forward to hearing the results.

  3. I've fallen off the 30-day Shred wagon, but I haven't gained weight, so I'm happy.

    Hey, I want to tell you something that helped me when I quit smoking 18+ years ago to focus on getting pregnant. Every time I wanted a cigarette, I simply said to myself, "Like a momma bird, you are building a nest in your womb. Would you put cigarettes in that nest? I think NOT." It was that easy. (Weird, but it worked.) Thought I'd share it in case you need inspiration :)
