Guess What I Did!

Shit.

 

Oh well. At least I’m alive. Ha.

I haven’t been very attentive to this whole diet thing recently.

Being unemployed and trying to find a job can give you tunnel vision, and then everything else seems unimportant, etc …

But, no excuses.

Tomorrow I am planting pumpkins … because, you know, that’s normal.

And I might even go running.

With all of this free time I have now, perhaps I can get some stuff done, right?

Long Time No See

Standard

Ok guys,

I am back. 

It’s been a long, crazy month or so. 

First, I went to New York City. Which would be excited except my entire family was there. my mom, my sister, my Aunt Rene, and her two sons Matthew and Morgan, my husband and me. 

My sister was the youngest person with us, and she’s 14. So it was a bunch of adults, or practically adults, or physically adults with the mental maturity of a five year old (no he’s not slow, just immature).

So pretty much there was a lot of yelling. I made people cry because I’m the bitch, and then we all came home and didn’t talk to each other for a week. 

In other words, it was awful. 

Word to the wise, DO NOT GO ON VACATION WITH YOU ENTIRE FAMILY! IT IS NOT VACATION, IT IS CRUEL AND UNUSUAL PUNISHMENT!

On a happier note, I had a birthday on Saturday and am officially 24 years old. I feel old. 

In other news, the bakery business is coming together nicely. Dani and I have been working our butts off!

And here is a first in the history of my 24 years on this earth: I THREW AWAY CAKE TODAY!

After eating on my birthday cake for two days I decided it was time to be done and I threw it away! 

Be proud. 

Now if this had been really amazing cake there wouldn’t have been any left to throw away; however, it was Kroger cake. And while it was not the worst cake I have ever had, it was definitely not up to par with cakes that I make 99% of the time. Sometimes everyone makes a terrible cake. 

So now that I am officially an adult, (I am not real sure why I decided 24 was official adult status. Maybe it is because I graduated college and got married all while 23) I have to start doing adult things, like not eating cake constantly and making a concerted effort to create a happier healthier me for the same of my body, my life, my family, and the sanity of all those around me (including the people I made cry in NYC). 

So this is my “New Years Resolution.” I am well aware it is not New Years, but it is the beginning of a new year of my life. 

Wish me luck.

Decided to be ballsy on break today.

It’s not a huge deal, but at least it’s a step in the right direction. Also, being outside makes me feel better about being in a tiny, smelly restaurant all day.

I mean, how can a view like that not make you smile?

There’s a tractor for Pete’s sake.

Also, my work shoes are fantastically better for walking than the ballet flats from yesterday.

Even if they are the most hideous things ever.

But now I go back inside and wipe down some tables.

Til next time.

Bringing a Knife to a Gun Fight.

Standard

Today, the boy and I went for a walk after running some errands.

Did I mention I have a boyfriend? Well, I do. His name is Taylor. We’ve been together four years this month. He’s pretty fantastic.

Anyway, walking. There’s this trail by his old high school that neither of us has been to, so we decided to check it out while we were in the neighborhood.

And it was awesome. Tons of trees, a place to go fishing, and we even saw a little garter snake.

However, I forgot to think about footwear… And of course we got lost and ended up wandering aimlessly in the woods for over an hour.

My feet are now just two big blisters as I neglected to change out of my ballet flats.

Oh well. I had fun anyway. And at least I did something productive.

Baby steps, and whatnot.

And I got smooches, which is the best part.
