On LOST. What a finale! Where to start. SPOLIER ALERT. I loved Charlie in this episode. He was the man. I really liked the fact that he was willing to risk his life for the others. Not really the Others, but you know who I mean. 🙂 I really didn’t like that he died. At least that’s how it appeared. Locke was awesome. His character really makes the show. He is one of my favorites. Perhaps my most favorite. Behind him in close second and third is Jack and Ben. Ben creeps me out sometimes. That’s why he is the man. And Jack’s, well, he is just a hunk! And he loves Kate. That’s all that matters. They will be together in the end. At least in my head. I really like where they are going with the show! Until next year…..

Jordin Sparks won American Idol. Congrats to her. She’s awesome. Blake is too, but I don’t think he wanted to win anyway. His name is out there now. Good for him.

Pooks is cuter than ever. He is laying on my lap now, as I type, snoring away.
Sorry, just had to throw that in there.

So, I got some really nice flowers yesterday. Planted them in some over-the-deck planters and plan to set them up today. They look really nice. I love flowers. I will post a picture of them as soon as I figure out how to! 😉

We are having a yard sale this weekend. Our family tradition every year. It’s usually at my aunt’s house, but since she moved we are going to do it here. Won’t be the same, but I am sure it will be fun. Hopefully Wendy and the boys will be able to come too. I am in the process of looking for things to sell. I thought I had more than I do. But today I really got to spring clean my kitchen. I had alot of garbage in my laundry room. From hundreds of receipts to five phone books to just junk. I threw it all out. Felt good 🙂 I love cleaning. I have issues, I know. I feel so good afterwards. Got tons of laundry done too today. I accomplished alot. After I publish this I plan to get some more done. Well, that’s all I did today. How about you?

So, I told my friend that I would write on my journal each day for a week straight. She promised to do the same. Here goes nothing.

I always (and will still continue to) think that what I write about is pointless. Here goes nothing.

The other night while at a friend’s house, my cousin and I stumbled on an old pastime. Stair racing. Yes, we used to race down the stairs, as fast as we could, on our butts. (We lived in the country and apple bobbin got boring.) SOOO much fun! Don’t knock it til you try it. It is now Wednesday and my leg is still (not continuously) bleeding. What a great time. My STOCKINGS (aka nylons for all you NORMAL people out there) are soooo sticking to my wound that I am certainly not looking forward to taking them off tonight. Anyway, I am pretty certain that I won. The timer was pressed conveniently a little too late, but that figures. I got the people’s vote. That’s all that matters. Bring it. 1:43 Here goes nothing.

I had two glasses of wine tonight so if this post makes absolutely no sense at all, I am not responsible.

Hmm, five random things about me.

1. I love all kinds of games. Whether board or card.
2. I CANNOT get enough pictures. (Of other people of course)
3. The best thing on this planet is Da Pooks my kitty. 🙂
4. I stole a large amount of money when I was younger. Not proud about that one. :/
5. I always wanted to be a Marine Biologist when I grew up. Never happened.

Hmm, what else can i write about? American Idol. I think that Jordin Sparks SHOULD win, but I honestly think that Blake will.

I haven’t seen who won Dancing with the Stars, but I really hope Apollo won. He is kinda hot. (I know I have issues)

So, that is all I have to say right now because I am tired. I will write more tomorrow because I said I will keep my word.

Here goes nothing.

Week 3

Down 1 pound. I don’t have anything interesting to say, so I am not going to say anything.
down 33 lbs.

Week 2

So, I did great on my diet all week. Until Friday. The weekend is the hardest for me. And then last night I figured I ruined it already, so I might as well eat. The result? Down a pound from last week. Better a little loss than nothing at all I guess. What is the hardest time for you to stay on a diet and how do you overcome this?

To-date: 32lbs

So, here I am over a year since starting my initial diet and I am not at my goal. I lost over 40lbs. but unfortunately gained 14 of it back. Ugh. So, I was still down 26 lbs. I guess I should still be happy about that. Last week I decided to quietly start, in case I failed, no one would know. I lost 5 pounds since then. I feel somewhat back on track even though dieting is always a struggle. So, as of yesterday, 31lbs off overall. Better than none. I am not sure what I will feel comfortable at, but I will have to see as I go down. I am thinking an additional 30-40lbs. We’ll see.

All I want is to be comfortable in a pair of shorts and a tank top for the summer. Hopefully I can pull it off before the snow starts to fly. ugh.

I posted this so when you see me yearning for that piece of pizza, you’ll stop me.


Do you like the new look or the old one better?
