Housework Is Evil...Need I Say More?

This weekend has been hotter than heck and all I wanted to do was catch up on my sleep and just lounge around.  So, what do I end up doing?  Tons and tons of laundry.  Oh!  And to top it off, I decided it would be a good idea to mow the lawn at 1 in the afternoon.  Could it be any hotter?!  There's no shade, no breeze, no nothing!  Just me, trying to keep the sweat out of my eyes and trying to keep myself from busting into random dance moves while listening to my iPod.  I should have kept my butt inside where it's cool. 

So, now I'm sitting here, trying to cool off and putting off folding the laundry and putting it away.  Plus I really need to pick up my bedroom and I've been wanting to rearrange it.  Why is it we decide to do all of this stuff when it's 1000 degrees outside instead of just sitting back and relaxing?

This Is How I Feel

This is how I feel after walking 2 miles this morning and then another 2 miles tonight.  Enough said!

WLS Facebook Group For The Midwest

Hello all!  I have decided to start a Facebook group for us Midwest WLS people.  I would love it if you all wanted to join as well.  It's not just strictly for people from the Midwest, but hopefully we get some others from the "area".  Anyways, it's just getting started so it's small and bare, so hang in there with us!

Shake Your Grove Thang!

I was sitting around the house surfing the net (okay, I was really Facebook stalking) thinking I need to get up and do something.  And by something, I mean workout.  And by workout, I mean something inside because it's 94 with a heat index of 108.  So, I started looking thru some WLS forums and came across one for Zumba for the Wii.  I did some reading up on it and thought it might be something worth looking into.  I went to my trusty site, and looked it up.  I read some of the reviews and added it to my cart.  Then I thought I would check out the Walmart site and see if they have in our store.  Very rarely do they have things in our store since it is smaller and the next Walmart is 20 mins away.  Well, of all the luck, they had it in the site said. I have run into this many times with our local store.  The site says they have something in stock and I get there and it's no where to be found.  Typical. 

I shut down my computer, grabbed my purse and headed on out!  I walked back to the electronics department, went straight for the games and there it was!!!!!  And they had 5 or 6 of them!  JACKPOT!  So, I decided since there were plenty of them I would go and check out some of the workout clothes.  I have some awesome New Balance workout/Yoga pants and capris, but I needed some shorts.  I found these for $6!  I got the gray ones, but I'm thinking for $6 I'm going back tomorrow and picking up a couple other pairs.  Not only were they perfect for the Wii, but they will be perfect to sleep in.  And at that price, you can't go wrong. 

So, I picked up my shorts, picked up Zumba and headed on home.  I pulled on my shorts (way comfy), popped in Zumba and started to shake my grove thang like it was nobody's business.  Thank goodness I pulled the blinds, because no one should have to watch me try to strut my stuff LOL  I didn't bother learning the steps (which I should have done) but jumped right in.  I kept up pretty well, but after 22 minutes, I had had enough.  I was spent, sweaty and dying for a drink of water.  So, all in all, I would say I had a successful Walmart trip and a pretty good Zumba workout.  I think I'm going to try it again later tonight and try to learn some of the moves.

Holy Wow!!! It's Hotter Than....

HAPPY WEEKEND EVERYONE!!!!  It's the dead of summer here in Iowa and mother nature is strutting her stuff and showing us who is boss.  It's supposed to be in the 90's today, with a heat index of 100+.  It's hot, it's's Iowa!  LOL  And to make matters worse, this icky humid weather is here to stay until at least Wednesday, or at least that's what the heat advisory says.  I don't plan on doing much, that's for sure.  I went for my walk early today, ran to the grocery store for the ingredients for taco salad and then to Walmart (huge mistake). But for some reason, I decided to rearrange my pantry today and needed a new spice rack and some new air tight containers.

Anywho, because it's so hot out today, I thought I would post a few pictures of ways to cool off.  I hope you enjoy them!  Enjoy your weekend!

I'm Baaaaaaacccckkkkkk!

Hello everyone!  I feel like I have been gone forever!  My laptop decided it didn't want to work anymore...well, actually, it was the motherboard, again!  I have replaced it twice now in less that a year and a half and I have had enough!  So, today, I ran my happy ass over to Best Buy and grabbed me up a new Toshiba Satellite laptop!  It doesn't have a bunch of bells and whistles, but I don't need all of that.  I mainly just surf the web (okay, Facebook), listen to my iTunes and type up the occasional paper.  So, now I'm back in the computer age and I have missed everyone!  I hope things are well for you all!

Finally....The Weekend

Well, that pretty much sums up my last week.  It was the week from emotional hell!  I haven't been on this hormonal roller coaster since about a month post op.  I've had some days since, here and there, but not a whole week since.  Holy crap it was horrible!

I couldn't get in a good mood for anything!  I felt like I couldn't get enough sleep.  Like I couldn't get ahead.  It felt like I would take 2 steps forward and 3 steps back.  It has been one long week for everyone involved and I am so sorry.  I wish I knew what triggered this whole thing so I could forewarn others.  So they could take cover or come prepared! 

I am so happy that the week is over and that I'm off for the weekend.  I'm hoping to get everything back into check and come Monday be back on track.  I want to enjoy the Holiday weekend without having my head spin around in circles and pea soup spewing from my mouth.  Wish me luck!
