Just Wondering

on June 8, 2009 - 12:35am

I should be asleep, but why is the FOJG Radio still playing Noel? I know these songs are enjoyed year round by people, but I thought that "one of these days" we were going to hear the winning playlist from that contest that was held back in--I don't even remember.

Sunday Night, Make It A Good Week

on June 7, 2009 - 10:07pm

How are you all doing tonight? I'm doing pretty good. I feel like I need a vaction--but then I usually feel that way.

I'm watching the Tony Awards.

Earlier I was watching the pilot episode of Mary Tyler Moore and laughing out loud, it's really funny! Sitting here with my mom she was freaking out because the show aired 40 years ago--yikes. It's totally funny because the clothing styles are back in now.

My family got back from California last night and I was so happy to see them! It sounds like they had a really great time in Disneyland. They even brought me a souviner or two. They missed me, it was sweet. I missed them more!

I've been thinking a lot about going back to school, moving into my own place. I just don't know where to begin!

I haven't been keeping up with the exercise, it's been 4 days. So, tomorrow I'm going to start again--tomorrow morning! I quit the Y because I can never seem to go there very often, and now I have a good exercise schedule going at home.

I'm trying to figure out Facebook right now, I just don't understand it, but my family all wanted me to join so I did.
***************

There's so much activity on here lately. Josh has posted what, like 4 blogs since I was here last. Glad to see he's keeping busy.

I'm going to try to log on here more often and keep in touch with all of you!

Goodnight everyone, take care.

Catching Up

on June 1, 2009 - 10:10pm

Hello everyone! I realize I haven't been on here very much lately. Or at least it feels that way to me. My birthday was on the 16th, can't believe I'm getting so old (I'm not going to say how old :-P). My family is in California until Friday so I have the house to myself! It's been so wonderful, but I do miss them. It's just me and the dog here and to be honest he's starting to get on my nerves.

They left a bunch of fresh vegetables and fruit, and not wanting them to go to waste I've been eating so healthfully for the last week and a half. I feel amazing! I mean it's practically a miracle how much better I feel when I eat healthy food. HA HA. I've also been exercising every day, twice a day usually. I wake up at 5am and do some cardio and then weights. Then in the evening another round of cardio. I just finished, a little late tonight. I'm going to a friend's wedding at the end of the Summer and I want to look good for that, but mainly I'm just so sick of feeling the way that I do, and I feel like I'm FINALLY going to achieve my goals. I feel so good!

I DVRed the PBS special, and I've watched a little of so far. I loved "Machine" That's one of my favorite songs.

The weather here has been SO HOT. I love it! I've completely forgotten all that rain we had before.

I hope everyone is doing well. I need to get some sleep. Peace!

B.

SUN

on May 17, 2009 - 2:37pm

It's such a beaitiful day! I love it! I went to church this morning, something I haven't done in about a month, with my mom and brother. Then, as always we went to my grandma's. This is the second Sunday in a row that we've gotten to sit outside on the patio. She has a lovely view of the sound. My aunt, and two of my cousins were there, and one of them brought her kids. They were so sweet. I take care of kids for a living and so I think the adults think I don't want to hang around with my cousins kids when I see them, but how could one not...they are SO sweet!

Grace is my goddaughter, she's 3. Austin is 5 and Bella is 1. Bella doesn't like me though. Every time I try to pick her up or play with her she says "Mamma" in a sad way. Today she started to get really tired and we were swinging on the patio swing and she was laughing and laughing and then you could see she was really tired because she actually leaned against me and let me put her on my lap.

My grandma filled her pond today too, so it was sort of chatoic making sure Bell didn't fall in or that she didn't fall off the deck. Lots to worry about. Austin and Grace are just so sweet, and caring. The four of us removed are shoes and let our feet hang in the water, they wanted to be by me, especially Grace, she always said so. At one point I had the two girls on my lap and Austin next to me, and we had a great time splashing, even Bella loved that and let me hold her. We played in the big field behind my grandmother's house and had races, climbed trees. The last two Sundays I've been able to spend time with my family and both times I've hung out with the kids almost the entire time, but I don't mind because I rarely see them and like I said, they are just the sweetest kids. We're planning a trip up to visit my other cousin in a few weekends.

I'm starting to admitt to people that I'm getting kind of tired of the nannying thing, but I haven't mentioned this to any of my clients. I mean I'm getting older, I need to start thinking about my future. Not that I wouldn't be content to be a nanny the rest of my life, but there are other things I want to do. I just haven't decided on a plan yet. I'm so undecided.

Yesterday for my birthday my family took me for a nice dinner at a place on the water. I'm really loving this nice weather. I have today off and most of tomorrow off, it's great. So, I think I'll take my laptop outside and finish transferring all my music onto my laptop. Happy Sunday everyone!

Thanks Shirley

on May 16, 2009 - 11:04pm

Thank you for reading my journal! I really appreciate it. Ryan is doing much better thanks. He's not cured or anything, but he's improved.

I just watched the latest Indiana Jones movie. I HATE that movie. It's been almost 20 years, but that wouldn't be a problem if the story and the script was anything like the originals. I mean how predictable, and the little references to the old films were too blatent. I was watching the special features and Steven Spielberg was talking about how he was so against making another Indy movie, and then how he was so against it being about aliens...I was sitting there telling the tv that "you should have stuck with your original plans Steven!" I think it would have been better had Indy had a daughter, but that whole plot was something so predictable. This whole film could have been so much more. It could have been great but it fell completely flat.
