In case you haven't heard, I'm starting to work out. Basically, I'm walking on the treadmill with the help of a close, unpaid friend who's coaching me. Apparently, I'm a fast grower. Yesterday I had to work really hard to make it to 40 minutes. My goal is to soon be walking an hour a day, 5 days a week. I'm not gonna do weekends till I'm in better shape, cause I have this weird fear of having people stare at me while I'm at the gym, and there are more people there on the weekends. Anyway, today, I was almost to the forty minute mark when I started to listen to "fighter" by Christina Aguilara (er... however that's spelled...) and instead of applying it to some PERSON who hurt me, I applied it to my body. For example, she says "After all the of the... cheating you probably think that I hold resentment for you" which is, I would think, how my head would feel about my body. And she says she's gonna work harder... which made me keep going. I walked for 50 minutes, 2 miles, and the only problem was that last... minute or so my foot started to hurt. I'm so proud of myself! And, hopefully, my friend will continue to coach me because I couldn't get motivate without him. (I hope you feel better, Mr. Unnamed, now that I've mentioned you in my blog.)

Venting session

Ok, you know how on the movie "Mean Girls" her one friend is "too gay to function"? Well, I am stealing that line, only I'm changing it to too stupid to function. That's David. You all know my husband? Errrr he's so annoyingly stupid, I don't even know how he SURVIVED before he met me. He doesn't THINK he just speaks and then he doesn't even understand that he did something wrong. How stupid can one person be?? Ok, here's the scoop. He wants to move halfway between my family and his. First of all, there is NOTHING halfway. Nothing. No hospitals, no... anything. And then he said he wants to be closer to his parents because they're old and he doesn't want to have to drive 3 hours if something happens to one of them. Which is... ya know, I understand that. But he doesn't get it. When we lived up there I was MISERABLE. So miserable, in fact, that in the week after we got married I found a friend on the internet and almost cheated on Dave with him. So miserable that I cried about 3 times a day. Then, I start going to school and making friends and being happy again and he freaking LOST HIS JOB and we had to move back. But the point is... the whole time we were there we saw his family the EXACT SAME NUMBER OF TIMES that we see them now. Whereas now, I see my family at least twice a week. Is it fair for him to take me away from them again? I mean, it's not. But apparently me saying that is being selfish because it's unfair for him to live so far away from his family! I mean, what the hell is his freaking deal???????? Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.......... okay, I feel better now lol

Wow it's been a while...

Ok, so I'm a slacker. I know I know. I need to blog more. Well, he's the scoop since we last talked. I finished another pair of Knitty's fetching, for Misti's birthday. I changed the pattern so that cables wen't all the way up the back of the hand, and I took 5 stitches out so they'd fit her. Um... I'm still working on the flower purse. Sorta. Ok, so it's in my box and hasn't been touched in weeks. So sue me. Anyway, I'm making "Branching out" but I've changed the pattern. Of course. I'm making it into a stole instead of a shawl, and I'm doing three pattern repeats... it'll be neat. I'm using my "sws" for it, so I'm excited about it. I'm also doing my first pair of socks! I'm using opal "feelings" sock yarn, and I'm doing "Broadripple" also from knitty. Um... I'm also working on detangling my yarn that I dyed, so I can make a hat. It may be untangled by Christmas lol. That's about it. Well, back to my braves!
