I wrote up a whole thing and it never posted. Ugh. So instead, here are more photos of my way-too-photogenic cat.
Maybe I’ll rewrite it all out later but I have no desire to right now. TGIF!!!
I had to make a lot of weird loud noises to get them to both look at me together.
Happy Hump day!
My forehead in this photo looks like it goes on forever.
Exciting things are happening! So we have somebody coming over tomorrow to look at the boat (it’s been up for sale for quite a while now) so these past few days have been used for some major cleaning. When I started cleaning on Monday I had to hide all the tiny things I’ve placed around the boat to try and make it semi-homey. A far cry from nesting but I did the most I could. Putting the boat back into show boat mode put me in a bad mood. I told Taylor, crying, that I was upset with having to put everything away. It made me feel like our relationship was going backwards, back to when we first started dating (plus I overreact). He told me that it was funny that I was crying over that because he already had decided to go ahead and get an apartment while looking for a house.
I can’t tell you how excited I am! Right now he has actually found a house to rent that sounds perfect for us right now. We just have to wait for a price. So hopefully we will be off the boat within the next couple of weeks. We are shoving all our big items into a storage unit and just trying to get as much off the boat as possible. It’s funny how much stuff over the past two years has accumulated on the boat, and you would never guess because everything is behind closed doors.
So that is my exciting Hump day news :) I’m excited to move forward in our relationship. I think it’s the right step for us and I think it will also help our relationship, as living there got us both down at times.
I’m looking to switch up my workout program. I love Jillian Michaels and there are a few that stream for free on Prime. Anyone have any experience with any of these?
Banish Fat Boost Metabolism
No More Trouble Zones
Shred-It With Weight
I have the first two plus 30 day shred and six week six pack. My favorite is no more trouble zones. They are all great though!
So my goal this year is to read 12 books. Not a lot, but it feels like a lot. I am ahead of schedule though! Here are the first three books I’ve read so far:
Born to Run by Christopher McDougall.
I liked it. There were definitely some interesting facts and I can agree with the running minimalistic/barefoot thing. However, after a while I had a had time keeping interested. That may have been because it took me longer than I planned to finish though. I would still recommend.
Why are Atheists so Angry? by Greta Christina.
This was a very short book. I finished it in no time. The first chapter was the best. She went and literally listed 99 reasons why she is an angry atheist. This part I found pretty fascinating. The things she listed are legit reasons and I was honestly shocked when reading the horrible things people have done in the name of religion. After this chapter she goes through by each type of religion (conservative, spiritual, new age, etc.) and explains why she is angry with them. Those chapters were quite repetitive and my attention span was shortened. The end was just a chapter of all atheist communities and organizations to be a part of/donate/etc. So overall it wasn’t all that great of a book. If anything the first chapter was the most powerful, the rest could have all been shoved into one chapter. I probably wouldn’t recommend.
Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer.
I can finally watch the movie that has been sitting in my living room for months! I liked it. I had a hard time keeping up at the beginning but otherwise It was very interesting and I’m excited to see how they did the movie. I would recommend.
That’s all so far. Currently reading Dark Places, and then I’m thinking Winter’s Tale.
My Sunday night.
I can’t fall asleep because to me it’s only 6pm.
Don’t worry. I made it home safely. Can’t decide if I’m more hungry or more tired. I want to lay in bed and have taylor spoon feed me while I slowly fall asleep…
I REALLY had to resist the urge to buy orange soda. It just sounds sooo good right now, probably because I’m dehydrated and tired. However, I resisted and got OJ instead. The Starbucks here doesn’t have a toaster so instead of a bagel I have a banana. I’m so healthy at 6 in the morning.
I’m so professional, and so tired.
Went to bed at about 9:30 last night and was up at 6. Getting to bed early has definitely helped my sickness. Sniffling less and the sneezing has decreased (I sneeze A LOT when I’m getting sick).
I met a pretty cool lady today that is talking at our meeting. She said she ran the Rock n Roll Las Vegas half marathon and that she wanted to do some 34 mile run in Africa but her last two marathon times weren’t fast enough for the cut-off. So we chatted and I told her about my stress fracture and stuff. Anyways, I really enjoyed meeting her. I’m always a fan of doctors who are big on exercise, and she is like 60. Go her!
I also just had a Caesars lady come to my door and give me chocolate. Can anyone say free dessert!?
Everyone is heading out to a restaurant that I unfortunately don’t like anything. So, I’m being boring and told them I am just going to order room service and go to bed early.
I actually don’t find this boring. I’m totally psyched for dinner in bed and a glass of wine and going to bed early. I don’t plan to stay in the next two nights so I’ll make up for my lack of being social later. Oh well, I’m lame.
Hopefully this going to bed early thing will also help my sickness go away. I spent the whole day sniffing and sneezing.
I’ve been terrible at updating lately, I know. I just find myself either not having enough time, or when I do, not having anything of significance to say.
I’m also been terrible at checking in on your life as well. I was going to right now but either tumblr is about to crash or my phone Internet is just sucky cause nothing will load.
Anyways, so I’m in Vegas! It’s basically how I imagined it- over the top. I will have exactly 0 time to go exploring as work everyday starts at 7 and ends at 5 and then we have a work dinner.
I can’t believe how expensive everything is here at this hotel (and I’m sure all the other ones). The bowl of cereal I ordered for breakfast this morning is 10 dollars. It better be in a troth.
Dinner last night was unenjoyable to say the least. It was our first work dinner of the trip and it started fine until somehow the topic turned to me and how I’m vegetarian. After that I was basically made fun of the whole night. Like I get that everybody doesn’t have the same views as me, I get that, but you don’t have to sit there and blatantly mock me for my life choices and think it’s funny. I so badly wanted to yell at the them and leave, but I sat there in silence until I was done and then politely excused myself. I mean really? I just don’t understand people. And it sucks that it’s my-coworkers. Thankfully they are co-workers that I will probably only ever see on business meetings.
The only good thing that came out of last night was that I am now an official member of the Diamond Club, which means access to the Diamond Lounge, which means unlimited free drinks whenever I want :)
Today is our first day of meetings, which means I get to meet the faculty we hired and hand them their checks, and basically put a face to a name. Should be fairly laid back. Hopefully nobody gets mad that they aren’t getting paid more.
That’s all I’ve got. I think I’m getting sick. Great. I don’t have time to check this for spelling/grammatical errors. I’ll try to catch up on your blog today, hopefully.
