You want us to do what??

So today, my day off, I wake up to the sound of Sydney crying in her kennel. This isn't highly unusual, because if she knows I'm in my room she cries until I come get her. This morning I got up and let her out and we went upstairs so I could get breakfast. Well she drank practically her whole bowl of water and then proceeded to follow me around all morning. She stood by me and panted and paced... I don't think she lied down at all. So finally I took her out at like 10:30. She peed a river and then proceeded to try and go about 20 more times before I finally pulled her inside because I was cold.
She then resumes the panting and the pacing and threw in a little whining for good measure. I gave up and took her out again at about 12:30. She hurried out the door and she peed a river again, but this time I noticed that she had a little blood in her urine. Yikes!! That's not good! So I hurried her back inside and called my dad to tell him. So we're both thinking UTI now. He came home for lunch about 1:15 and he called the vet. We were hoping to get her an appointment for today. No such luck. The Vet double booked and couldn't see her at all today. But they said the best thing they could do was to have us retrieve a urine sample and then take it back to them and they would run tests on it. Are you kidding me?? Get a urine sample from a hyperactive almost 3 year old lab who weighs almost 100 lbs? Were they nuts??
So my dad eats some lunch while I run to the vet clinic to pic of the container. This is what they gave me....

Were they joking? They expect us to slip that little tray underneath her while she's peeing and then pour it into that cup. I'm not anticipating this to be very easy.
This is what Sydney has to say about it... "You're gonna do what while I go to the bathroom?"

We'll see how it goes. Hopefully it is just a UTI and not a kidney stone or something. Ewww!! *shudder*.
Atleast now she has settled down a little bit and is laying out in the living room. Well, I am off to take an online quiz. Yea!

Until next time.............

Monday Music (sort of)...

Ok... this just cracks me up. Not only does the actual clip make me laugh, but the blooper too. Oh how I miss them....

Girl's Night Out

You gotta love a good girl's night out... that is unless you're a guy I suppose.
Robin, Ashley and I went out to eat at Granite city tonight (yum!), followed by an hour at Panera drinking some warm beverages to waste time before our movie. We went to see 27 Dresses. It was pretty good. We had a few laughs, and the story was enjoyable. The theatre was PACKED! It was ridiculous. And of course one of the most obnoxious people had to come sit by me. It's like I have flypaper on me, and the most annoying people are attracted to it. This older gentleman and his wife were the flies tonight. He sat next to me, and of course me being the person that needs personal space, I asked him if it would be ok with him if I put the arm rest down. His wife must have been a little hard of hearing because when I put the armrest down she piped in and told her husband, "What if she didn't want the armrest down?" To which he politely replied, "She asked to have it put down." We shared a chuckle, ha ha, and then I turned back to talk with my friends. I should have been tipped off right there that they were not suitable "neighbors". For some reason this guy was a little confused by some parts in the movie. It seemed like every 15 minutes or so he asked his wife a question about something. Although, for all I know maybe he didn't want to see this movie and he was just trying to keep himself awake by asking questions. Who knows... the movie was pretty easy to follow, so I'm not sure what the deal was. If the movie had been bad I would have been even more upset, but it was enjoyable so I could overlook his talking.
Alright, so let's backtrack to the restaraunt. Granite City. Doesn't it just sound delicious? Ashley and I both had buffalo burgers, and they were yummy. Robin had some beef thing I think. I can't remember. All I know is she got a big thing of mashed potatoes with bacon and cheese on it, and that alone would make me want to order that next time. But it was an enjoyable meal, and the atmosphere was nice as well. Definitely get there early on a Friday night though. There were a lot of people waiting for a table when we left at 6.
Ok, well I think I'm done for now. Just wanted to let you in on my fun girl's night. It was a good stress reliever at the end of my week. Now I get to start it all over again in a couple days.
Have a good weekend!!!

Gets me every time....

My sister sent me the link to this video a couple months ago. She found it on a blog somewhere. I thought I would share it. I warn you now, it is a bit cheesy, but it has a good message. When I watched it the first time I was cringing at the theatrics in teh beginnging, but a couple minutes into it I forgot comepletely about that and just took in the message, and by the end I was crying. So, just watch it. You'll be glad you did. The song is Everything by Lifehouse. If you just want to listen to the song you can find it in my playlist at the bottom of the page. Oh yea, make sure you turn off the playlist before you play this. :) Enjoy.....

Attention all music lovers....

I have now added a new feature to my blog. And if you have your sound on and your ears are cleaned out you will already have noticed it. It came to my attention that pretty much everyone is adding music to their blogs and such, so I thought "I don't want to be left out", so I signed up for a playlist of my own, and Voila! Hope the music is enjoyable to you and if not...well... give me suggestions of what you'd like to hear instead.
I'll keep adding songs to it as often as I can, so look out for new music coming to a blog near you....

P.S.-- I know you're probably wondering how I have time to keep posting since I had clinicals this week and said I may not get back to you guys until the weekend. Well, it turns out I need a way to relieve my stress, and blogging helps. This week was pretty much a not so fun week. I didn't sleep well, and I had paperwork coming out my... ears. I finished my paperwork for the week tonight around 6:45, so I am paperwork free for atleast 4 days. Then I start all over again. :( Pray for me.... I need it!

Not fun!

OK, having no power is not fun. What's even more "not fun" is when the power goes off right when you are in the middle of your paperwork! I am SO glad I am one of those neurotic people that saves her papers every 30 seconds. I had JUST saved and not 20 seconds later the power went out. My sis says there were around 4000 outages (she works for the electric company if you were wondering how she knew that). You don't realize how much you rely on the internet until you can't use it. I mean I have my email, school website, weather, references.... the list goes on.
So here we are (me, mom and dad) at 6:30 with no power. I honestly think my dad was semi-excited about the whole thing. Bless his heart, he was trying to make a bad situation better. He got flashlights, and suggested we watch a movie on the laptop. Of course mom was having none of that. God forbid she actually spend some quality family time with us after 5pm... (I'm kidding.... sort of), so she went to bed... at 7:15! Well, anyway dad was all excited about watching a dvd, so he starting running through movie and he came across Facing the Giants. It was a very low budget film, but was actually in the movie theatres. It was actually pretty good. For more information click . It has a synopsis and lots of other stuff.
After the movie was over, I went to my room, by the light of my penlight.. no joke... and started organizing my stuff for clinical tomorrow. It was when my sis and I were going over directions to the grade school I had to go to tomorrow that the electricity came back on. *Angel's sing* You know what that means... HEAT!! It had already dropped 6 degrees in a 2 hour time span. Brrr!
Needless to say I was totally out of my groove to get back to paperwork, so that will have to wait until tomorrow night. Luckily I only had about 20 minutes left of work to do. I guess it was a blessing in disguise. I spent some quality time with my dad, which doesn't happen very often. Plus I took in a pretty decent movie for low budget. Good message! If you're looking for a clean movie for the whole family this would be a good one.
Alright well my knees, back, legs and feet ache from standing all day at my horrible horrible clinical. I might blog on that later. And yet, I might just erase the whole horrible day from my memory. I think I'm definitely going to like Community WAY better than Adult this semester. Oh well. Only 15 more weeks left. Did I mention my "reward" after this semester is a trip?? Wanna guess where? Ok, I'll let you guess......
I must go now. I think my back is going to permanently slump over if I don't lay down in the next five minutes. Have a good Wednesday everybody!

Who doesn't like that?

To lighten the mood a little from my last post (because I'm sure you're all thinking "Good grief, she's really hit rock bottom") I've decided to post one of my favorite pics. It cracks me up everytime I see it. I hope you enjoy it too!

Until next time (which will probably be near the end of the week since I have classes and clinicals through Wednesday)......

(Seriously... who doesn't like a smiling goat?)

It's not easy being....

green. Or blue. Or whatever other color you feel you are at this moment. Have you ever noticed that we sometimes express emotions by colors? Green is for envy. Blue is for sadness. Red is for anger. Pink is for embarrassment. I'm sure the list could go on. It's just odd how one day we just starting associating our emotions with colors.
Lately I've been trying to control my emotions. I would have to say, if I was being completely honest, that I'm not a very good person. Sure, I may seem that way, but to myself I'm not all that people think I am. I don't read my Bible everyday. I sometimes act before I think, which later makes me regretful I ever opened my big mouth. I'm not as quick to apologize as I am to criticize. I sometimes give unwanted advice. I get nervous in some situations and instead of saying something easy and simple (or better yet, nothing at all) I open my mouth and blurt out the first unintelligable thing I can think of. If I'm feeling bad or something has happened I try and guilt other people, so they will feel responsible for the way I am feeling. I hold onto a grudge well after the time it should have been let go. I follow the majority more times than I make my own decisions, no matter what the majority thinks. I am engrained with these judgements of people or issues that I am just realizing I have opinions on myself, but have been agreeing with others all along because that is what I learned to do.
Why do I do such things? It boggles my mind, not to mention irritates me, when I do something stupid and then not 2 seconds later am thinking "Why did I do that? What was hoping to have happen from saying/doing that?" Who am I trying to impress? Others? Should that really be who I'm trying to impress? I think that the One I should be trying to make a good impression with is God. But sometimes it is so easy for me to fall into the worldy ways and not focus on Him, but instead focus on myself. I think one reason is because I haven't been as prayerful as I should be. I mean prayer is after all an ongoing conversation with God. Why can't I talk to Him while I'm at school? Believe me I need to draw on Him for all the strength I can get while I'm there. Going to a catholic institution for schooling does not mean everyone is a "good christian". I feel more pressured and.... alone there more than any other place. Which I guess makes sense since I'm spending the majority of my time there. I shoudn't feel alone though. God is with me wherever I go. However, it still doesn't make it any easier to do the right thing constantly, day after day. Now, this isn't some lead in to a story about I got totally wasted this weekend and can't remember a thing that happened. I'm just saying that life is hard. It's hard to stay on the path you know God wants you on. You are faced with decision after decision, day after day, and sometimes you just want to turn around and see if the devil himself is following you, putting these "challenges" in your path. *sigh*
I guess what I'm trying to get at is that I'm working on all of the aforementioned qualities that I possess, but would rather get rid of. I've been finding myself praying a lot more and relying on God to help with my words and my actions. Some people have already started to notice and others still don't have any idea. Some have noticed that I'm quieter in some situations. That isn't because I'm mad or upset or trying to think of something smart to say. I'm simply praying and thinking on what I should do next and how God would want me to react. I'm working out my emotions so that I don't explode on some poor person who didn't see it coming. I'm trying to hold my tongue and not give unwanted advice. I'm trying to be nicer with the way my words come across to others. I'm trying to remove the harshness from my words and deliver them with sincerity instead of judgement. I'm trying to be the person that some people think I am instead of the person that I know I am.
All I can say is that I'm a work in progress. Just because I say I'm trying to change these things doesn't mean it will happen overnight. I know that after so many years you fall into a pattern. It may not be good, but it's oh so hard to get out of once you realize it's wrong. I just felt like I should share my realizations that I've come to over the past few weeks. Maybe it will inspire you to change yourself. Maybe not. You may not need to change. It doesn't really matter what you do or what I do, because we don't answer to eachother. We answer to our Heavenly Father. He is the only one with an opinion that holds any weight when we are looking for judgement.
So, beware of this work in progress. I'm not perfect. I'll be the first to admit that. I'm just asking for patience as I try to make some not so easy changes in my life. I would be lying if I said I wasn't afraid of what lies ahead. I'm basically trying to change my whole self. That is scary, especially when I am still at a vulnerable age wher I am SO influenced by peers. But, I will try my best, and that is all that I can do. I've asked for His mercy to flow around me, and that is where I start anew....

Ezekiel 18:31, 36:26,27 Rid yourselves of all offenses you have committed... I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and becareful to keep my laws.

Reluctant Return...

Well, I know I've been MIA all week, but as you know from previous posts-- I started back to school on Monday. Pretty much the only good thing I've found in returning to school is that I am now officially a SENIOR!!! (That is... for the second time.) I am basically still adjusting to all of the new information, so I really don't have much to say right now. I think I'm going to like all my clinical instructors (which are also lecture instructors), so no complaints about that so far.

Ok, on to more interesting stuff.... Don't you just love kids?? They are so gosh darn adorable sometimes. I watched my friend Robin's kids yesterday and they are just too adorable. (The dog on the other hand... not so much, but we'll get back to that later.) So anyway... I had to get up at like 6 am on my day off to go watch the kiddos because Robin's sitter couldn't watch the kids that morning. So me, being the good buddy I am, stepped up and said I would watch them for her. So I get there at like 7:15 and she gives me the run down. Ava meanwhile started whining about playing a game or something and I can tell Robin is like "Get me out of here!". So she leaves, and almost immediately the tears stop and Ava is all smiles. So I sit them at the counter and go about making them breakfast. By make I mean pour cereal and milk into a bowl and give them a banana. So they eat all their breakfast and all is well. We watched a little Spongebob (who lives in a pineapple under the sea....) and then they started watching the Backyardigans (adorable show if you haven't seen it). So a little after 8 I get Hayden into his coat and put his hat on as we wait for the bus to come and get him. They arrive and I take him out. The aide on the bus must have been completly clueless because she's there to help him up the stairs and she goes "Say goodbye to mommy". Meanwhile the bus driver is looking at me strangley because she knows I'm not "mommy". Anyway... so he's gone and I get Ava in her coat and put her in my car. I take her to preschool where her teacher again gives me the same strange look as I drop her off at her classroom (This is ridiculous because Robin told her about me). Even so, she didn't say a word to me and so I told Ava I would be back when she was done, and we said goodbye to eachother.
Thus begins my few hours of silence. It was enjoyable. I did my "homework" for Sunday School this week, answered some emails, surfed the web, etc. Before I knew it Hayden was due to come home, so I went out and warmed up the car. He arrived and I loaded him in the car which he proceeded to talk about for 5 minutes. He was quiet when we started toward Ava's school and all of a sudden he says, in his sweet little boy voice, "I like this car... it's different." I laughed. He's so cute! So we get to Ava's school I go in and get her. Ava ran to me and her teacher again gave me this blank look. Hello!!! You're a preschool teacher! Show some expression why don't ya??
So then we go back home and they're both being chatterboxes. I fed them lunch which they both said was "very yummy" (I'm tellin' ya I can make a mean PB&J). After lunch was when the real fun began.... I was cleaning up their plates and the counter when all of a sudden Ava yells "Jake's got play-doh" from the dining room. Yes, the dog did indeed have a little thing of play-doh in his mouth. The little mongrol had climbed up onto their fireplace ledge and stolen one of the kid's play-doh canisters which he proceeded to chew the lid off of and snack on some play-doh (the brown one, if anyone cares about the color). So I coerce the play-doh away from him and the kids and I go in the living room. I think we played just about every game they own. Granted each game would only last 5 minutes before Ava would announce "Ok, I'm done. Let's get a new one." This went on for a good hour or so. Meanwhile at some time in there I walked by the dining room to see none other than JAKE chewing on one of Ava's SHOES!! And if that wasn't enough I see a PUDDLE on the carpet. Yes, goober had peed on the carpet. Grr!!! So I chase him around the table for the shoe while the kids are standing on the other side of the gate going "Bad Jakey! Bad!" I think that only feuled him more, plus my grumbling under my breath. I finally wrestle the shoe away and gave him a little time to contemplate his actions outside while I cleaned up his mess. Once that was all squared away I went back to play with the kids.
So, here's a cute part... I'm laying on my side on the floor while Ava is picking up her 53rd game and Hayden comes up real close to my face so our noses are touching and he looks into my eyes and says, "I like you." Then as if that weren't cute enough he puts his cheek next to mine. Now come on... that's just adorable!!
Shortly after we went downstairs so they could "rock out" to some kiddie songs. If you know anything about me you knew I was DYING in those moments! Plus, it was like 10 degrees colder downstairs. I let them play for like a half hour and then kind of forewarned them that we would have to go back upstairs soon and they were going to have to lay down. So I could only stand 10 more minutes of the songs and the cold, so we went upstairs and Ava just proceeded to go to her room and say "Ok, Hayden nap time." Mind you, they are both 4, so he looked at me and was like "we are taking a nap now?" I tried not to laugh and said "Yea, let's just do naps now." So they go into their rooms, and while I'm tucking Hayden in Ava comes in and goes "Do you want me to rub your back Bubbas?" I was trying not to crack up, because that is such a mommy thing to do. I tried even harder not to laugh when Hayden said "No. Get out of my room." Hahaha!
So I take Ava to her room and they slept for TWO hours. It was shocking. I guess they were pretty tired.
And that conluded my day with them pretty much. Robin got home at 3:15 and I left shortly after. It took us almost 15 minutes to get their carseats out though. That's another blog entirely though. Let's just say I will forever be using the seatbelt to put them in and not attaching them to the bar underneath the seat. (If you've ever installed a carseat this way you know what I'm talking about. What a pain!)

Well, that is pretty much what I've been up to this last week. School for three days, Hayden and Ava Thursday, and then shopping with Hol in the bitter cold tonight. Brr!! (What were we thinking Hol??) It's just me and mom tonight because Dad is having a lock-in with his jr. high group from church. I have NO idea what he was thinking when he thought up this idea, but bless his heart he has a passion for kids that age. It takes a special person, and that person is not me. Tomorrow I think Holli and I are braving the elements again to go get our pants hemmed. Our great aunt hems them for a price (that price being us visiting. haha). We don't mind visiting with her though. She's a riot! I hope I'm as... spirited as she is when I'm that age.

Alright, well I think I have officially caught you up on my week. With the way things are going to be with my schedule I'm thinking this will be a weekly occurence. You'll just get one big long email a week, unless of course somethign hugely monumental happens. They won't all be quite this long though. I just had to throw my day with Hayden and Ava in there because it was so good (minus the dog).

Until next time.....
P.S.-- Sorry I didn't have any pictures besides Spongebob to post. I put some color in there though so you wouldn't get bored.

Run, Run as Fast as You Can...

Can you finish that sentence? It's "You can't catch me, I'm the Stinky Cheese Man." That phrase is what I feel like my little "nocturnal friend" is taunting me with. It all started yesterday and it has only gotten worse as the hours go on. Sure, he's as dead as a doornail, but he has left such a pungent smell behind that it is almost as bad as the incessant scratching. Which would I rather have you ask? The scratching or the stench? Well... I would probably have to say the smell, even though it is quite rank. It's almost comforting though, because I know along with the smell is a sense of knowing that he is actually dead and not going to gnaw his way through my wall any second. Anyway... enough of the icky talk.

I'm preparing to head back to schoool. I had a mini freak out yesterday, but after some reassuring words froma recent graduate I'm feeling okay again. It's hard to believe that I start back on Monday though. I guess to some extent I'm greatful, because I've been bored out of my mind some days, but there is a sense of freedom to being able to sleep in if you want, or just up and decide you want a coffee and you're going to go get one right now because you have nowhere to be. *Sigh* Well, as the saying goes... All good things must come to an end.
How cool is it that I can say I graduate THIS year though??? It's quite cool!

Alright, well I better go. I want to read a little bit more of my current book, and then I'll probably go to bed semi-early. I got up early this morning to kind of get myself used to a normal school schedule again. I did not enjoy it.

Have a good one!

What month is it again?

I'm pretty sure when I looked at my calendar just a few short days ago it was January. Well, by looking at the crazy weather we had last night you would have guessed differently. A torndao warning???? In January???? Is that insane or what? I swear, the lightening was coming every 5 seconds. It was insane. And of course as the civil defense sirens are blaring and the tv is suggesting people take shelter, what am I doing? That's right I'm standing at the window taking pictures so I can blog about it to you all. I know... not the smartest thing a girl could do. However, the way I look at it is if God wanted to strike me dead during that storm He was going to do it regardless if I was taking awesome pictures of lightening or huddled in the backroom with the dog. So to not draw this out any longer, I bring to you a masterpiece that I call "Lightening". (Hee Hee, I know. I couldn't think of anything more original. I thought of "Lightening: the Series" or "Lightening in Steps" and even "Lightening: Photographed by an Idiot" but I went with simple instead.)

Alright, well I must go. I'm in charge of dinner tonight, and I want to lay down and try and get rid of this headache first. I do not enjoy getting up early again. :(

Until next time...........

Election Preparedeness

Can you believe that this year we elect another president? Number 43 in the long line of presidents our nation has already elected. That's crazy to think about.
One thing about getting older is you get to vote and have a say in these important decisions. That can be good or bad... I'm not one of those people that just decides something by how the wind is blowing that day. I have to research a topic. It can even be a song that I am wanting to buy. If I'm going to spend my money on it though, I want to know what it's saying and if it's worth it. Some people may call that anal, and well, maybe it is. But I've very rarely had a regret about something that I thought out before making a decision on.
So why should the presidential election be any different?? Last election was my first time voting. I was a baby-faced 18 year old who had no idea how the process even worked. While this time around I probably only understand a little bit more than last time I atleast feel confident to know what to look for, so I can make an educated decision. So, this morning, at the start of our new year, I put my pen to paper and started surfing the presidential candidates websites to see where they stood on the "issues". I must say that this is a hard thing to do. I quickly got overwhelmed and had to take a break. This will definitely be an ongoing process for me.

Ok, so on to a little lighter news.... still no sign of the "nocturnal one". Yea!! My sis told me about this electronic mouse trap this morning. Someone she works with says they use it and they haven't had any mice, and they live in a corn field! Definitely something to look into...

Alright, well I must go. I'm trying to finish this book I've been reading since Thanksgiving. My goal is to finish tonight. Haha, yea right.....

Thursday, January 3, 2008

Can it be true??

It has been almost 24 hours since the last scratch was heard. Hallelujah!! The only bad thing is... where did it go? Hmm...

So I went and got my junior's goodies today. I'm quite pleased with what I got. The funny thing is that most of their stuff came from the travel section. You gotta love how they have little lotions, hand sanitizer, chapstick, and aleve. It's the perfect size for the mugs I got!

Well, I'm sitting here listening to songs that I'm putting on a mix for my sister. I'm trying to decide in which order they should go in, and then I need to make a cover for it. I guess I better pay attention to this.

I'll be back when I have something more interesting to talk about. :p

As if there wasn't enough....

Have you ever had the feeling that your head was so full of snot that you thought your head was going to explode? If you have, then you know exactly how I'm feeling right now. It seems that it has gotten worse as the day has gone on. Not to mention I haven't been sleeping well the past couple of nights due to the scratching into the wee hours of the morning.

As if those things weren't enough by themselves I wake up this morning to the "nocturnal one" STILL scratching!! It scratched off and on ALL day!! What is up with that???

So then I get up and am toasting my waffles and all of a sudden I hear this knocking, like someone is at the backdoor to our garage. So I go peek out the window and what do I find??

It's none other than Woody the Woodpecker! Are you kidding me? After I took a couple pictures of him he happily flew away, but I have a feeling that it won't be last of him.
Alright, well I'm off to get in my jammies and crawl into bed. I might read for a little bit and see how much my head can handle. Pray I don't get worse. I have school in a week and can't take more than this. I'm pretty sure it's a sinus thing due to the evidence in the kleenex this morning (yellow usually means sinuses people). Alright well I must go. My head is too heavy to hold up any longer.

Last minute to do's...

This brown layout is much better than the black and turquoise one from before. This is a little more "earthy".
Well, I'm nearing closer and closer to the start of my next semester, and I can't say that I'm super excited about it. From what we've heard this semester is the hardest. I heard last semester was kind of bad too, and seeing that I survived that ok I'm not getting to anxious about this one. I do dread the extra paperwork though. Oh well... such is life. Better paperwork than an extra class I suppose.
I have so much to do it seems before classes start up again, and I'm wondering why I put so much off until now. Robin and I are planning to get together so we can get her book for Adult, and then I need to finish getting (or rather start getting) my juniors something for their orientation. Was it really the smartest thing for me to take on 4 juniors to mentor when this semester could be the death of me? I'm not so sure.
Well, I think I'll go take some medicine to get rid of this floating feeling my head has taken on. Enjoy hump day!

Tuesday, January 1, 2008


Not diggin' this layout either, but atleast with the darker background you can read the words better. I don't know... I'll browse tomorrow for something better. For now I'm going to bed, if I can tune out the scratching....

New Layout...

I'm trying out a new layout because the old one was kind of plain. I'm not so sure about this one now that I have it. I'll give it a few days and decide then I guess.
So... it's 2008. How can that be? Where did 2007 go? I can't believe that I only have 1 year left of school. That is if I don't choose to go on and get my Masters. Can I really be this old already?
Hmm... I'm in a very ponderous mood tonight. Maybe it's because I'm tired from a not going to bed until 2:30 this morning. Plus I have a little bit of a cold. That always makes me a little more serious than usual.
Well, for now I bid you farewell. I'm thinking that I'm going to start reviewing books here. Not that there are too many of you that read this, but you never know. I love to read, and I just might introduce you to something you haven't read before.
Ok, I'm feeling thirsty so I'm off to get some water. Water is the best thing to drink. It cleanses your body and increases your metabolism. (Can you tell I've been watching Biggest Loser? Those are words of wisdom from Jillian. I love her!)
Until next time.....
