My new goal..

This has got to be the coolest place EVER!!

My new goal is to get to Fitness Ridge by February of 2008! One week.
Someone better hold me to it. If I had the mulah and the time off I would be there next week. That is how badly I want to go!!

In the meantime I am going to have to enjoy kicking the dumb asthma cough.

In other news...
I watched The Family Stone last night. I have seen previews for it a few times and saw an all-star cast... so I figured that it can't totally suck. I was soooo right! I sat in front of the TV with my knitting (hush you!) and laughed out loud, got super emotional (didn't quite cry) and actually had a moment where I wished I was in a relationship. Scary.. I know!

Who watched Grey's last week? Was I the only one that was totally depressed that Ava left again? She needs to be on the show long term!! Alex needs a love interest cause lord knows I am SOOO sick of the Izzy/ George and Meredith/ Derrick story line!

And last but not least.. THE BIGGEST LOSER!! Soo much drama in last week's episode! Such a shame that people sink so low for personal gain. My faves are still Hollie (GO HOLLIE!) Julie and.. BOB! :) hehe.

I got my tea last week! It is called Mulberry Yellow tea... aka Phellinus Linteus ( I don't know about you but that aka sounds like either A. Some obsession with something Phallic or B. Some stuffy uptight trust fund guy with old parents that gave him some obscure family name.) Anyway..
it is very light tasting and I actually enjoy it. It helped my congestion by leaps and bounds. It took the edge off of my cough as well. I highly suggest it... read the research at I am going to continue with it and report my results

Now I am off to check my email and make some ugly yarn creation called a blanket :)

Check her out!

She has an amazing voice IMO!

I am a blog slacker!

I am back from having a great time in Tulsa and seeing some awesome peeps down there. I have another blog to post about that but I need to load a couple of pictures first, hehehe.

As soon as I got home I had to go straight to the doctor... for... a freakin breathing treatment! Something seems so wrong about inhaling nothing but chemicals to open up your lungs. Doesn't that seem oxy-moronish?!? I felt like I was suckin on a tailpipe. Luckily it helped some.

About a year ago I was diagnosed with asthma. Tuesday it was pretty much confirmed that I will never be able to own a dog again. I can't tell you how sad this makes me. All of a sudden I have developed these extreme allergies to many things. It is kind of depressing. I haven't been able to hit the gym all week because I am living with allergy pills in one hand and an inhaler in the other. I finally started feeling better today though.. I think all the allergens are making their way out of my system...

A dear friend suggested me checking out a certain tea to help me out. I have been reading all the research on it and.. I am impressed. I am much more into holistic healing than traditional medicine so.. why not. I will keep you posted. If you wanna check it out too.. you should! Mulberry Yellow Tea .... It is touted to help cancer patients the most but also aid several other ailments. It should get here Tuesday.. be prepared for my review!

Now I must haul my buns to the store to get more ingredients for bath salts (yay!) and something to eat for the week. Miss me.. :)

If you have not read this WONDERFUL book yet.. go! Run, don't walk! It is one of the best books I have read. As in.. it is in my top five and I read often!

I am currently in Tulsa! YAY! I am getting to spend time with one of my fave people of all time.
And I have met her wonderful fiance (they have got to be the cutest couple of all time) though I am pretty convinced that he is trying to kill me every.time.he.drives. I mean... um... he is a WONDERFUL driver, with an impeccable sense of direction. Especially when he is talking. :)

During this visit I have come to the conclusion that
A. All Tulsans should move to Utah. They are so pleasant and friendly. I kinda wanna run around and hug all of them! Kinda.

B. Someone needs to build a Panera in Utah. And while we are on the subject of my wishes... they need to also give me a lifetime all access to all food contained in that store for free. YUM!

Be Thankful!

I was at work the other day and need to take a moment to escape from the crazy craziness that is my work. We have very restricted net access there. I just happened to be able to access this article and something about it caught my attention.

It was the whole concept of being thankful.

There were other great points in there but I really liked this one. So in honor of this I think I am going to list what I am thankful for!

1. Having great friends that really serve as family in my life.
2. That I have a roof over my head and a cozy blanket to snuggle up in at night.
3. That I can live my life how I want to on only my terms, that I realized this before I was 80.
4. That I have my full mental capacity and all five of my senses. (those moments I am ODed on Latte's don't count!)
5. That I was able to meet the missing portion of my family while I was still young so that I have a chance to get to know them.

Yes.. this is such a small list... but..

What are you thankful for?

Someone is slackin in blog land..

yup.. that would be me.

nothing all that interesting to recap.

Currently I am trying to get ready for the next few weeks that are coming up. Next weekend I get to go Tulsa (OMGOSH! I can't wait!)

The weekend after that a friend of mine is having his annual "Welcome to my Nightmare" party.. He and his wife love october... and what better month to drink a bit?? Helps keep the chill away.

Yesterday I finally gave in and gave my body exactly what it needed. Ok.. not EXACTLY.. cause it REALLY needs to win the lottery and lose a few pounds.
So I have it the second best thing! A massage. I slept better last night than I have in the past 3 months! Heaven! Pure Heaven! :)

Tomorrow is Friday!! WOO HOO!! 5:30, here I come! :)

Still obsessed with the idea of getting the bodybugg.... I can't believe how expensive it is :( After I get through the holidays.. that may be my next investment... Does anyone else have one? What do you think? I am trying to figure out if I can get by on a heart monitor for now. But I am clueless in this field... must read more on the net!
