A Reading Fool...

So one night while channel surfing, I ended up on the Twilight movie.  I'd never seen it, I was intrigued and so I watched it.  Bad move.  I then become obsessed with reading the books before I watched the rest of the movies.  But, I'm a slacker so it took me awhile to get to our local bookstore and pick up books 1 & 2.  So, I started book 1 the first week of March.  I finished it within a few days.  Then I started book 2.  Finished it.  Somewhere in there I sent B to the bookstore to pick up books 3 & 4.  He's so good to me!  Needless to say, Book 3 is finished and I've begun Book 4.

These books are big, long, many pages kinda books.  And I love it!  I'm dragging on my Book 4 reading because I don't want it to be over.  But once I finish it I can finally watch the movies.

Plus, my sister just bought the Hunger Game books - so I'm all set for my next obsession!

Family Sick Day

Today I'm hanging at home with a family sick day.  B had some yucky dental work stuff done this morning and so I'm playing nurse.  I'm not a good nurse.  I'm a faints-at-the-sight-of-blood kinda nurse.  This isn't good because today is a spits-blood kinda day.  My patient has been sleeping for awhile.  He wanted me to wake him up at 3 p.m. which is in about 15 minutes.  I'm debating on whether I should or not.  I don't really want to see more bloody spit, nor do I want to deal with the patient.  There...I said it.  I'm not a good nurse, told you!

It's been a busy, but lonely month.  B went to Florida for a week to visit his mom.  So glad that we can make this trip happen for him each year, but I miss him when he's gone.  When he got back he went onto the nights part of his schedule.  So, that meant 3 more nights on my own.  Then he worked days this weekend.  Needless to say...I'm ready for him to have a few days off on a weekend.  Oh yeah - he has this weekend off and we are heading to visit my side of the family.   I haven't seen them in about a month - so I'm ready for this visit!

Well...I guess I better go make some noise to see if I can wake the patient up....

Reason #7,259 of why I love my husband

Today, B gave me reason #7,259 of why I love this man.  He is in Florida, visiting his mom, treating our nephew to his first trip there and getting to some some spring baseball.  My dad is in Florida also.  Today, B was going to a game in the area Dad is visiting so he gave him a call to see if he wanted to go to the game with him.  B needed to get a ticket anyway, so getting 2 was not going to be a big deal.  Well, long story short, Dad did want to go (plus some wonderful friends he was visiting wanted to attend also) and they went ahead and got 4 more tickets to the game...just the wrong game!  It was in a different ballpark, 30 or 40 miles away, with different teams.  So, my sweet B, dropped his mom and nephew at the ballpark they were originally going to and headed to where my dad and his friends were.  It wasn't the game he had planned to see - but sometimes God has different plans for us.  He spent a wonderful afternoon with my Dad, got to visit with some great family friends and saw a great game.

He made me cry when he told me about the afternoon.  He is a wonderful man and I am blessed every minute to have him in my life.  Family is so important to him and he loves my Dad.  What more could a girl want?

Zumba hurts

I'm stalled in my quest to be thinner.  I have gone up and down the scale with the same 2 or 3 pounds for almost 3 months.  Blah.  So, I'm taking a Zumba class through the local adult ed with one of my friends.  This is week 2.  It was harder than week 1, mostly because I knew what to expect and I probably tried to push myself a little bit more.  Things I've learned while doing Zumba are - I'm out of shape, weird parts of my body hurt, and I need a sports bra (maybe 2). 

I'm loving the upbeat music, the fact that I'm burning over 600 calories in one hour, and doing this with such a great friend.  It would not be nearly as much fun to go by myself.

Even though it's been painful so far, we're already planning to sign up for the 2nd session!
