Updates…

So, what am I updating? I mean, I don’t regularly blog, but, yes, there are still updates.

  1. For those of you that didn’t know, I’m dieting… I’ve been on a diet for weeks now… Since the end of February actually. I’m feeling great, and actually losing weight. And so that you all can say Sheesh if you look like that now, what did you look like 19 pounds ago?! Here’s a pic of me after I weighed myself and realized I’m  down 19 pounds! Like, Yay! (Eeewwww, did I really have to make THAT face?!)
  2. But, moving on… I’ve been cheating on my diet. Constantly. As in every single weekend. And I do it on purpose. I want this to be a life change, so it’s a give and take, and my husband rocks for support… So… When I started this diet along with some friends at work, we agreed to have a few International Diet Break Days – I know, we are awesome, please do not steal our trademark… jajaja… Our first one was a few weeks ago… And, to stay true to the name, we ate, and ate and ate.. Like this…And yet still managed – with the long weekend and all, to not gain back weight! Yay!
  3. I get to see Axl, I mean Guns n Roses, this week. Can’t wait!!! I’ve been on a GnR kick (obviously) and the fact that Sebastian Bach is joining him is kind of like icing on the cake. As I’ve said before, 12 year old me is EXCITED! My poor, poor husband!
  4. I’ve renewed my love of Twitter. Yes, I have… It’s not only Twilight Fanfiction and quotes anymore. -Sigh- I’m actually -gasp- interacting via 140 character messages. And.I.couldn’t.be.happier. It’s good to see, that amongst all the crap and hurt out there, there are good (albeit crazy, cooky, fun, imaginary friend having), decent people willing to share with someone who they don’t really know and make their day that bit much brighter. *tear*
  5. Tension’s still there. Stress is too. But one day at a time, right? Making changes is not something that happens overnight. And, I’ve failed enough times to know that the worse thing you can do is give in and cry.
  6. Oh, and I need to update my blog roll… I’m following so many new wonderful blogs…

So, that’s it for now… No more updates… Oh, and I didn’t win any of the blog contests I’ve entered. Poo! 🙂  It’s not like I can tell my husband to go out and buy me any of the stuff… After all, he is AWESOME and all… See?

MY as in MY, yes MY iPad!

He surprised me with an iPad. There are NONE in Puerto Rico, like Zero, Zip, NONE, so what did he do? He got me one from the States… And he payed to Express ship it so I’d have it by Saturday. No, you can’t have my husband. I am keeping him.To.myself.

And my iPad, oh, she’s lovely… As soon as I get her a pretty case, she’ll be going out in public often. Until then, she’s on house arrest, unless I’m going out with my husband. 🙂

See that? I made it!

Sometimes it is apparent that all I seem to do is whine and complain with a side of trying (unsuccessfully) to be grateful.

But, some days, the planets align, the skies clear, the sun shines and a light breeze flows and you just… Breathe. In. Out. In. Out. Yes. Breathe.

Try it sometime, it is amazing how little we breathe. We just breathe enough to keep the minimum necessary amount of oxygen in our bodies. We run our bodies on empty. ALL.THE.TIME. Try it, try that deep cleansing breath.

OUCH! Right? Right? It HURTS to take a deep cleansing breath. It’s so wrong. Yet, so true.

Well, I’ve had a couple of days (in a row!) that felt like those deep cleansing breaths. They were wonderful. They were painful. They were scary. They were awesome! Sign me up for some more deep breaths, PLEASE!

I’ll bear with the pain. I’m kind of used to pain by now. So, switching it up to a pain that signifies being alive, well, maybe that’s what the doctor ordered.

I’ve spent a few days just being. Reading other people’s blogs, actually *crying* for people that I’ve never met, having conversations (via 140 characters!) with people I’ll probably never meet… And just breathing.

I have much to be thankful for. Even though sometimes I just keep concentrating on the things I don’t have. The things I want and dream of. I still have a LOT to be thankful for. Today, I’m thankful for new e-friends, blogs that make me cry and giggle, 16 pounds lost already (woot!) and hope.

And, who could ever forget, how much I love to… COOK!

You know what I refer to in the title of this post? This!

Pumpkin roll with Cream Cheese Icing

I only got THIS picture, because I was TOO excited. I made two pumpkin rolls. They got eaten up! (I only got this picture because my sweet husband took it, I didn’t get ANY!)

I was so proud! Yay!

So, today, I breathe. Rejoice in the technology that brings us closer together while still allowing me to be totally antisocial…

And count the days until I get my iPad.

Yes?

Maybe?

🙂

April is…

The month I get to see Guns N Roses live!

The start of the second quarter at work… The quarter when we find out if we make it or not. I hope they don’t push it back again. Even though I love having a job, not knowing isn’t great, the suspense is killing me.

The month that started with two days off work. How could any month be better?

I’ve been baking. ’cause I love to…

Spending time with my husband, ’cause I love it and it keeps me sane… And just hanging… 🙂

I’ve also been reading and following waaaaaay too many excellent mommy blogs, yes, because I need a little extra torture each day…

And, of course, who can forget… I’ve been looking forward to and checking up on Eclipse! June 30. My BFF isn’t coming with me, because she’s decided to leave, but, me and my little sis will have ourselves some fun seeing… Click on the pics to see them a bit larger…

I love the Cullen family picture… (can someone locate the WEIRDEST hair ever? 🙂 )

Oh, and after almost three movies, we can safely say that movie Alice is not as fashionable as BOOK Alice. Book Alice would NEVER let her family out on the street in those clothes, and don’t even mention that she wouldn’t be caught dead in half the outfits either. Oh, and of course, she would never let her husband/boyfriend look SO BAD!

So, if there is such a thing as a Chill Pill I need it… and soon… sometimes, it’s bad.
