Finished Study (Ok, Almost)


It still needs a comfy reading chair and next year we'll replace the door to the balcony and the wood casing. (But that's not in the photo so we won't worry about that!)

Realizing (Again) This Week

Two things I unabashedly love:

1. Rosie O'Donnell. From stand up comedian Rosie, to Queen of Nice with the faux-crush on Tom Cruise Rosie to Loudmouth, Liberal, Lesbian, Sticking-Her-Foot-In-Her-Mouth and Blogging Cryptically About "The View" Rosie. Love her and you can't stop me.

2. So You Think You Can Dance. Duh.

So Tracey, What Are Your Plans For This Weekend?

Oh, I'm so glad you asked because I'M GOING TO SEE THIS.

Sometimes life is so awesome I can't stand it.

And now, an excerpt for your viewing pleasure:

Hellooooo Internet!

How's is going? It seems like so much time has passed since we last chatted. There's so much to talk about! Like, did you hear that Paris Hilton is going to JAIL? Oh wait, I'm sure you already knew that, being that you are the internet, but still! If that isn't the best thing I've heard all week then I don't know what is! Maybe that Chicago is bidding on the 2016 Summer Olympics? Awesome! I can picture already me and the girls riding the train in to catch some 75-pound Romanian gymnasts! This is assuming of course that my kids will want anything to do with me in 2016, but if not I'm sure Steph will still love me and we will wave little American flags and yell "Stick that vault landing!" together. Also, were you aware that The Office is the best thing to happen to my tv since Arrested Development got canceled? And you know the what's even better? People actually watch this show so it won't get canned. Imagine that! So do you think Jim and Pam will ever get together? Because she was all kinds of crazy to turn him down at the end of Season 2. I mean, I'd totally marry him in a heartbeat (that is if I weren't already married and if he wasn't a fictional character.)

So I guess what I'm saying internet is, life is good! The sun is shining, summer is coming, and Paris is headed to the slammer! Woot!

It's My Day and I'll Do Nothing If I Want To

My lawn chair is calling me.

I love Mother's Day.

Hey! It's May!

And that means that I completed my first month of obsessive compulsive running! In other words, I had challenged myself at the end of March to run at least three miles 5-6 times a week throughout the month of April. And I did it! So yay me. I even upped my mileage to four miles a run. (In actuality I run 2.5 miles, walk for .5 and then run another 1.0 for the grand total, but still... )

So now what? Well, for starters I'm loosening up and only going to the gym four times a week this month but still hopefully logging four miles visit. If I may channel the great Ms. Britney Spears for a minute, "Gettin' in shape is HARD y'all!" But seriously, it really is. I'm finally starting to see some results at least so that is giving me a boost. I'm still wearing the same size jeans but I've built up a ton of muscle and I just feel and look more toned (dare I say buff?) over all. I am also aware of how much more muscle weighs than fat so I have banished the scale from my bathroom. And I haven't changed how i eat at all really because, frankly, running makes me HUNGRY. Ravenous may be more like it. Hopefully all this muscle I've built is burning more calories during the day because I'll be damned if a Chipotle Burrito Bol isn't one of the best things you could ever eat in the history of the world. So. Good.

So anyway, I'd probably be further along in this body transformation thing if I could stop eating so much, but news flash- I kind of love to eat. The few times I've dieted in my live I've been successful but that's because I ate next to nothing at all during those times and I have no desire to do that right now seeing that running requires FUEL. And Culver's. Speaking of which, is on it's way to my house right now courtesy of my wonderful husband who probably likes to eat even more than I do. In fact, I'm sure of that.

And on that note I will now prepare to eat cheese fries and watch America's Next Top Model. I think Tyra Banks would approve.
