Lifes random thoughts

Lifes random thoughts

I am stealing this idea from my friend Poppy, she is so fun to read and I recommend you take a look.

Things that make me happy
My children learning from and enjoying shows on Animal planet

Things that make me sad
Losing Steve Irwin, whom I consider a hero

Things that make me happy
Moving into a new huge house with room for my family

Things that make me sad
Not having enough time to decorate it yet

Things that make me happy
Quiting soda for 2 weeks!

Things that make me sad
Falling off the soda wagon, and getting a sore from the soda.

Things that make me happy
Deciding to make homemade jams, jellies, and salsa for the holidays

Things that make me sad
Not yet finding time to attempt let alone perfect the perfect jams, jellies, and salsas.

Things that make me happy
Watching my daughter play with the blocks I made for her quilt

Things that make me sad
Having a year, and still not being done with the damn quilt

Finally things that make me happy
Knowing my family loves me despite my downfalls.

Have a good day!

Ok tonight. 6:40pm. Where will I be? Hopefully at the gym doing a kickboxing class! My sister is getting married in 3 months and I am her maid of honor. And I have put on a few pounds. So off to kickboxing I will go. Sounds easy right? And it really is. Get in the car, drive, walk to class, do kickboxing. Done.

Not so fast. Can someone please tell my why classrooms at the gym are like fishbowls? I mean seriously! Do you really wanna watch people do classes, being totally sweaty, and if you are watching me, trying to follow the steps without falling down?

It isn't fun to watch. And yet people do! They stand at the glass and they look. Just like you are at the aquarium. "Oh look at that fish in the purple! How graceful" "Whoops look at the blue fish he just ran into another fish" C'mon people there must be something better to do than stand there and give people complexes!

This is why I have a hard time going to kickboxing. I hate to be watched. HATE IT. And maybe you aren't looking at me. But If you are standing at the glass looking in the room I feel like you are starring at me.

So if you have any compassion. The next time you are at the gym. And you happen across one of these fishbowls. With people inside trying desperately to keep up. Just walk away. I would appreciate it!

It finally happened

My husband and I went to a hockey game on Monday night with a dear friend of my husbands . Now you all know I am a huge hockey fan. Not just any hockey team though. My boys, The San Jose Sharks. They hold the key to my heart!

Ok so we get to the game, have good seats, enjoying the game. They are actually winning. Then they are losing. THats ok though, I am at the game. And I refuse to believe I am bad luck, even though I have never been to a winning game.

Ok so second period ends and we are down by 3. This is starting to suck a little. But my boys play their best in the third period. So I am not to worried.

So my hubby and I go to the bathroom, our friend goes to talk to some of his other friends who happend to be at the game also.

Well we come back from the bathroom. Wheres Andy? Not sure, so we sit and wait.

And the third period is about to start. Then comes Andy. "COme on guys" he says. So we follow. And guess where he is taking us?

C'mon guess? Okay give up?

He took us to sit with his friends, who have season tickets right behind the sharks' bench. Three rows back. We can smell the sweat, feel the ice. It was amazing.

And I start to have an anxiety attack. I am not kidding. I can't breath, my heart was beating out of my chest, I am as red as red gets, and my boys haven't even come out of the locker room!

Then it happens. They walk out. The are 10 feet away from me. My breathing gets worse, my face gets redder. I was so excited, my knees were actually numb.

Then one looked at me. We made eye contact. I am not kidding. It was one of my favorite players. It was really brief, and it wasn't an "I love you" look. But it was amazing.

Then they start to score. They score twice in 5 minutes! I am totally pumped, yelling, clapping, everything.

Well, it comes down to the final minutes, and they lose. But it was the greatest game ever! I will never be able to beat that. Even if I go to a winning game!

Ok my story was good, but this guy, Andy, his rendition is much better. So enjoy! Andrew's Story

Today I have been on a rollercoaster of emotions. Someone in my life is royally pissing me off. They don't mean to. That is just who they are, but it totally sucks! I am starting to dislike them. Which isn't good. I don't dislike anyone. I just get tired of being the only one in a friendship. My shoulders are tired. I can't handle all the weight. But I have no idea how to let go. I isn't really an option not to be friends with them. But I wish there was. You know when you give and give, and that person willingly takes, but doesn't give in return? Or thinks a simple "how was your day" is doing their part? Well that is what it is. And you know what? That is fine. Why should I try to make this person like me? Why should I be the only one consumed by this problem? Not anymore. Today I take a stand. I can be cordial. I can be friendly. But going out of my way? Done. Thanks for listening.

life's random thoughts

Ok so almost everyday I come here. To my blog and I just sit and stare at the screen. I have no idea what to put. I read other peoples blog, like DixiePeach, I have no idea how to highlight her name. And she has some interesting stuff to write. Whether it is about her hubby, the streets of Germany, or her sock monkey Lottie, I am usually riveted. Or there is BareFoot, she writes about her nephew, her house, her dogs, and I love reading it.

I don't want to talk about sad stuff. Even though at the moment I am feeling pain for an amazing person who has gone through so much heartache this past year, that I don't know how she continues on.

I could talk about my dogs. My American bulldog , Sugar, had surgery yesterday for a growth on her paw. She is fine now, and it was all pretty uneventful. My Boston terrier, Elvis, is growing so fast! But that is about it. No new tricks, or funny stories.

I could write about hockey. My boys (The Sharks) play tonight. They are working there way to getting to the playoffs. But the games hasn't happened yet, so I can't say much other than I hope the win.

My oldest daughter Julias birthday party is tonight. We are going to Chuck E Cheese. So I watch kids all day, and then I get to watch them more tonight. But Julia begged me to go. And what can I say? I caved!

My husband is working, which is awesome. He just bought a new radio for his truck. And I was going to buy it for him for Valentines day. So now what do I get him? Well for sure the silly boxers that I get him every Valentines.

So that's it. My random thoughts for the day. I hope you enjoyed it. I will try to get more exciting I promise!
