Find a penny...

So on my walk out with the dog tonight I came across a shiny, new penny. Most people just throw them out or don't think they have much significance (especially not now given the recent economy left behind by a certain someone, let's just leave it at that). I on the other hand LOVE pennies. Everytime I see them I pick them up. H actually calls pennies (or any coins for that matter) wishes, because you can throw them in a wishing well.

I have done this since I was a little kid. In fact while picking up said penny tonight I remembered that I opened my first banking account at Zions with my pennies I had collected. I filled up an old popcorn tin that my brother sold while he was in boy scouts. I remember the tin very well because there was a picture of a boy on it that reminded me so much of my neighbor Brandon. I had collected $32 in pennies, really not much if you think of it but that is 3,200 pennies, so really it is alot of pennies. I now have probably about the same amount in my banking account currently but I was proud of my collection of pennies and I am glad I still collect them and remember when I was young of all the silly things I did as a kid.

Just so you know I did see Star Trek again tonight, did I mention what a great movie that is?

We are all pathetic, creepy and can't girls. That's why we fight robots.

Ugh, working out can hurt...

So even though my baby sister can do a 3.2 (or something like that) all up hill it still kills me to just run for some time. I have been doing a 1 minute run to a 4 minute walk, I just upped the ante and did 2 run 3 walk. Didn't go as far as I have been but I even ended it with running for a little more then 3 minutes.

Really for me to remember that I ran for more then 3 minutes is really amazing because I am seriously stupid when I workout, no kidding, I dumb down. Remembering my name is even hard, so I will NEVER pick up guys while I am working out because of it.

Also just so you know I use the term "run" loosely because really I think at best it is a light jog, but really I think I see ladies with walkers go faster then I do when I work out.

And just so you know I think I should be studied because when I work out I have toxins leave my body. I turn bright red and I itch like crazy, all over it drives me insane.

I've been a bawdy little monkey.

4 more weeks to go and Ragnar relay and myself...

I know deep down that H misses me however there are some days where it really gets to me. I find myself crying over silly little things and I think about it and then I find some way for it to come back to him. Most of it stems from me being lucky on not getting to talk to him for more than 3 minutes 3 days a week. I am just reminded on how much better of a person I can be when I actually try to get him to talk to his dad longer even when he tries not to and I try to make sure we make it quiet so they can hear each other. Only 2 weeks down, 4 more to go.

Well again my baby sister has survived another Wasatch Back Ragnar Relay Race (or however it is worded). She was having troubles getting the team to come together but it pulled through at the end, even if they had to get a random guy. I am glad he turned out to be pretty cool and a good fit for them. Not only am I proud of her but her whole team, they are a great bunch of people and I am glad she knows them, it makes life that much better to have such a great bunch of people around (random or forced into it) it sounds as though they had a lot of fun despite the weather.

This has been the second week of working out, I went running again today but I ditched the dog. I walked her at the beginning and the end as a warm up and cool down but she drags me down and I want to make this work out good. I am proud of myself, even though I am not working out as much as one would hope I think I am at a very good start. I just can't wait to show the boy that with enough dedication his mother can run a 3.1 (although I will tell him 3.2 all thanks to Mary). It will be the best feeling ever to have him see me and cheer me on. Not as far as Mary can go but it will be enough for now, a great start.

Forecast for tomorrow a few sprinkles of genius with a chance of doom.

Joel McHale...

My dear, sweet comedian man friend. I worship thee. He is really nice not just good to look at. I know, I guess I need a man in my life so I stop having such crazy crushes on celebrities. Rob Pattinson, Bradley Cooper, Chris Pine, Hugh Jackman... (there are so many more those are just the ones I have wanted or have seen their movies lately that I can recall). But really even if I had a man I would still have these crushes so it wouldn't do any good, I just want to be happy being me and spend all the time I can in the world with my son because really he is only going to want me for so long. Relationships can come afterwards. Yes I get lonely and yes it is hard at times but I would not change it for the world, I am very glad I have H, he means the world to me.

I like this picture other than I am squinting when I smile, I need to work on my modeling technique (Mary says do what Tyra says). I am glad it was such a better picture though but that is all thanks to Mary's friend Mandy who was smart enough to bring a camera. I am not sure where my camera is at the moment, it is MIA so hopefully as I am cleaning I will find it. So after I lose some of the weight (I could call it baby weight but come on the boy is 8 now, it is just pure laziness now) and practicing my modeling techniques hopefully I will have another chance to get it straight.

Maybe I could photoshop us in photos of weddings and such and just say he is my husband but he is traveling, no one I know seems to know him so I think I could pull it off. I might even get presents out of it.

It's those small daily happenings that make life so spectacular.

Happy birthday to me...

Well it was actually Friday and I realize this may be too late but I thought I would try. Got to see Joel McHale!!!! Got a surprise present from my son, he is a wonderful boy, it made my day even better. But still when I see the pictures he sent I wonder why I even bother trying to pack him clothes because he is not wearing anything that was sent. Oh well, you win some you lose some.

Artist rendering by the boy...

Just for you Mary, the picture of your favorite. The best I can tell is the part on the left is he and Garrett. Then split shot to them "spying" on the ground with five girls in the distance. The picture makes the words seem so much more fun to read. If they were not so cute and innocent I would say we have stalkers in the making.

This is day two of boot camp, so far so good. I am waking up extra early tomorrow to work out before work so I can have time to work on my cake. Dark purple, light purple, pale yellow and a green (shade still to be decided). I get to use my new colors, so excited. Then Joel McHale on Friday, I can't wait! I want to make a shirt that says "It's my 32nd birthday and all I want is a hug from Joel McHale!", I am going to borrow Mary's tiara too!!! (FYI, no money for the shirt but it is a nice thought anyway)

The boy's odd and funny thoughts...

So I am cleaning while H is gone inbetween making my birthday cake to take into work this week (New Moon trailer inspired). Making cakes for me is fun because it allows me to create.

Anyway H has all of his school stuff just all around the house and I am going through it all to decide on what to keep because you just can't keep it all. I decided to read his journal, if it were a personal diary I wouldn't have read it but this is one that the teached discussed with them and he saw me flipping through so he knows I would have read it. I am going to type them just as they are written because I feel it adds to it too. Keep in mind that I have told him that he needs to try to sound out the word and try to spell it first before he asks for help, that way he can figure out the different sounds.

If translations are needed let me know, but I had to decipher the handwriting so I think that was the hardest part.

Just some of the funnier or sweet thoughts that were in this journal...

What I like second grade is Recess because I like geting chased Bi girls.

I feel happy because I am going ot play army by my sler (I think he meant myself). because is it fun.

I feel happy because I have friends. one of my friend me.

I feel happy because I am going to play kickball it is fun to play and it well be 2nd grade agints 6th and 5th grade and 4th agints nowan.

I played starwars at Recess it was fun. I was OBKOBI Garrett was YODA. Gary was R2-D2.

at Kentucky I went to bedstory at theaads it was very very fun. Then it was sahrday then I came back home then i saw my mom.

Today we had a Ronald McDonald Assembley. my favorite thing was win mcdonald act like a bump on a log.

In January I played Army with Garrett and I watch Girls. That's really fun when I and Garrett played Army and watch Girls. It was awesome and cool. (this was then followed by a picture he drew of him and Garret hiding and three girls.

Today is loved ones Day and grandpa because he is hurt bad we fix stuff.

If I could change the world I would add a other state.

some of my best memories of 2nd grade is 2nd grade.

If I lived in the ocean I be a dolphin and I would play ball with Garrett and Makayla. I would be wet all the time.

This is the last

The boy is off...

I sent H to his dad's for six weeks. I can't believe he is gone for that long. I just don't know what to do when he is gone, it is like he is my identity anymore. I am sure I will find something but I just don't feel the same. I do like to do something for myself when he is gone. I usually get my hair done or something.

I get to see lots of movies when he is gone too, that is one of my favorite things to do but I don't get to do it that often because I like the scary, action packed movies and I think most of them are inappropriate and too scary for him. Whether I rent or venture out in public I do see a good number of movies while he is gone.

I also catch up on my tv because I really don't get to watch a whole lot when he is around, at least not a whole lot that is not cartoon related. Call me crazy but I like to spend time with my kid and even though he may not admit it on most days he does like it too. In fact he gave me a hard time when I was reading the Twilight series because I was not spending enough time with him.

I miss him, but I know he will have fun so I guess I will live yet again.
