Looking at this pictures made me a little sad, as I am no longer friends with these people. I had a bit of a falling out with one, and didn't stay in touch with they others, neither did they stay in touch with me. They did stay in touch with one another however, and I think that makes me a little sad and jealous.

Wish us luck. I'm not sure we'll still be speaking by the end of the day!

This article appeared last friday I believe in the New York times. I have very good intentions of blogging about it when it first came out. But blah, blah, blah, blah blah....you know how it is, something always comes up.
So, for those of you who haven't seen it, I thought it was a good read albeit long. I have to admit my first reaction was pretty negative. I felt like she was bashing anyone who blogs calling them attention whores(her word, not mine) who need to tell people about their experiences to get the attention they crave. While I'm sure to some degree that is true, I think it's safe to say that is not completely what blogging is about. I've read several blogs where people are going through a hard time and are able to blog about it, and the get support (not the attention) they desperately need. So I have decided to look at blogging in that way, a support network, a place to share thoughts, feelings, and opinions. Doing so in a public space comes with responsibilities of course. And since I'm behind on posting they NY Times has since come out with another article where the writer responds to some of the comments posted about her piece. I found those interesting too.

Death Cab (they have a new CD out, but I'm too cheap to buy it)
It doesn't have to be out new, I'm not that into it, so there is a good chance there is an album from two years ago that I've never heard.
Oh and if you have a favorite that is not Indie, let me know that too.

I think the feelings I have now are less homesick, but maybe more, just miss stuff about home. I miss my friends, or at least the fact that we had friends. I miss how easy thing were, we already knew the good pizza places, and the good sushi places. I already had a doctor and dentist, and a place where I got my haircut. My parents where only 5o miles away, and I could visit any time I wanted.
Lately I guess I've just been missing home. Maybe not homesick because I love it down here, and most days I really enjoy finding new places, to eat, etc, and I don't think I really want to be back home. Maybe I just miss the comfort. This isn't a feel sorry for me post, or anything, because I am really really happy. Maybe it's just that this place is fun but it's not home yet.

I am however one of those people who hits the snooze button over and over and over, each morning. But this morning, I only hit the snooze once, and therefore got up on time (did you catch that? I actually set the alarm for earlier than I need to get up because I know myself and I will always hit the snooze button).
My typically morning routine is get up, shower, dress,brush teeth, leave.
A good morning is get up, shower, dress, make the bed, brush teeth, leave.
THIS morning, brought to you in part I'm sure because I went to bed at 9:15pm last night, I had time to get up, shower, dress, make the bed, brush teeth, put on makeup, do hair, pick out some cute jewelery and a nicer outfit(one that involves more than jeans, tee-shirt and flip flops).
So I walk out of the bathroom feeling all good about myself, and what I've acomplished and go to stay good morning to Jake and Lucy.
Jake says, very concerned, "are you alright?" I say "yes", He says "wow you just look really tired this morning. You have bags under your eyes" "Maybe it's the way you've done your makeup"
At least he noticed I was wearing makeup. That's better than a poke in the eye.

So I decided I would make a little contest out of what's in the bag???
I'll give $10 chipotle gift card(yeah, I know big spender, but I just got my rebate check; HAVE to stimulate the economy) to whoever gives the best guess for what is the bag at Dale's Donuts #9. Comments are eligible until next Saturday. If you don't have a chipotle near you, we can work something else out. The winner will be picked by me.
If you know what's in the bag, I'd be curious to find out, but wait until after Saturday to post.

The other night, one of us left the bathroom door open, and the next thing we see is this
Our bathroom garbage can has one of those lids that swings back and forth and Lucy was sticking her nose in and got stuck.

So far I've decided I'm going to....start working out again, make the bed in the morning, start eating better, floss, clean up the house, keep up on my blog posts and drink more water.....whew that was a lot of work.
Unfortunately this is my natural reaction whenever I finish something, try and pile on a bunch of other stuff and ultimately not end up being successful with any of it.
This time, I vow to only try and do a few of those things. Jake and Lucy and I have gotten into a really nice habit of going for walks in the evenings when I get home from work, as it's gets hotter we are going to attempt to get up early and go in the morning. However I would really like to start lap swimming, maybe on the weekends. Does anyone in Fort Worth know of any outdoor community pools that have lap swim times?
And maybe I'll try to floss, and drink more water, and shower daily, and....
Speaking of starting over, I seem to have messed up my google analytics when I updated my website, so tell all of your friends to come visit again.
