OK good news!

I lost three pounds! Yay :) I know it's not a lot, but it's been about three weeks and I wondered if my diet was working. Cuz I know I haven't been working out because I haven't felt good. So I weighed myself today and Yes! It is working! :) Yay!

(p.s. there was not a conclusion to MY issue with my principal but there was something exciting happening today that I shouldn't post on the interweb so if you want to me!)

Another one?

Another snow day means I have to actually do some work around the house. I actually have to shower and get dressed. Damn. I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm so glad we have it b/c I was supposed to have parent teacher conferences tonight and instead I get to go to my bowling league...but still. Two days in a row. That means I'll have to do something. Like vaccum and unload the dishwasher and put away dishes. Ugh. I don't even want to think about it.

We were watching scrubs last night (or maybe it was on the night before) and it's an early-ish one where JD realizes that he doesn't love Elliot, instead they are just best friends. That got me thinking. I think that in order to love someone, you also have to be their best friends. Noah's my best friend. I can't imagine my life without him in it. I know that I love him, but I don't know how I know I love him. Weigh in readers, how do you know that you love someone? I mean, I know I do, but how do I know?

Maybe I shouldn't say this...

But I've been thinking about it for awhile and I'm not trying to offend anyone so I'm just going to go ahead and ponder...

What's the derrogatory term in England or the UK for homosexuals if faggot means cigarette?

I was listening to the wonderful and amazing Juno soundtrack and one of the songs talks about a guy loving his fag. Which I know means cigarette. But then what's the derrogatory term for gay people if fag is taken?

Sorry I've been MIA. I've been sick and super busy and sick of being super busy. I've got a sinus infection which I'm trying to treat at home b/c every time I go to urgent care, they don't listen to me and prescribe me something that I'm allergic to. Great. I know. And I know that should get a personal physician, but they don't have good hours and I really don't want to miss anymore work than absolutely necessary. So...I'm sick and Parent Teacher Conferences are this week. Tonight and Wednesday. Which means I'm at work from 8:30 in the morning until 7:30 in the evening with no break. Suck.

But I'm looking forward to Friday. Friday night is my holiday couple's dinner. We're having steak and shrimp kabobs with peppers, onions, mushrooms, and the little round tomatos. A salad courtesy of Beth. Yummy baked potatoes with italian seasoning and parmesean cheese. Wine courtesy of Andrea. And the Piece de Resistance, heart shaped chocolate swirl cheesecake. Mmm!

Weekend? What weekend?

Sooooo...Friday's snow day was awesome. We had sushi with friends for dinner then went to see Golden Compass. Don't go. If you did, I'm sorry. I read the books and LOVED the series but, honestly? The movie was a load of crap. They totally rewrote the entire book and didn't even give you the important information. Ugh.

Saturday I had tutoring, which actually went Ok for once. Then I went shopping!!! No I didn't get the BIG check I was expecting, but I took some monies for myself and went shopping. I got a pair of jeans, two shirts, a tank, and a pair of shoes all for $100. Yay me. The jeans are Seven for All Mankind...which I love. Thank you Filene's Basement for making designer jeans affordable. The shoes are WAY ugly alone, but with jeans they are amazing. I will post pictures. (Also pics will be posted tonight of my new haircut. Promise.)

Sunday blew. Seriously and totally. We had to go to the Spfld to have lunch with Noah's sister b/c she's too "busy" to come to C-bus for her mom's birthday. And yet somehow when she found out that an organic supermarket was closing, she only has class until 12nn and can come. Hmm. Funny how that works. You're too busy to come to C-bus for your Mom's birthday and yet you can be here for your own purposes...Hmmm. So that was a crazy long car ride and lunch sucked and his sister's cake sucked, I had a horrible stomach ache, and then we had to come back. Also, didn't watch the superbowl. I DVR'd it and am fastforwarding through the game to watch the commercials.

Being back at work today sucks. I hope I'm not getting sick...

Er Duh Moment soon as I walked away from the computer I remember what I wanted to blog about in the first place!

I cut my hair last week. I'm waiting on my photographer husband to take a decent picture so I can post it. BUT I love it! (It does seem to be the time for hair cutting doesn't it?)

And I caught up on my google reader. And a side note, since I've started using google reader I have to admit that I've commented less. Please don't think less of me. I just have been super busy with the 3, yes 3, jobs I've been working lately and the bowling league (I LOVE bowling) that I don't have time to go to everyone's blog. But I'm reading you! I promise!

And I finally found wonderful wine goblets that didn't cost $6 per glass and match my dishes! Now let's hope that Noah likes them!

While I'm on the subject of Noah, if you've been reading me for awhile you know we've had our rocky moments. And I blogged about them. And then never went back and re-visited them. I've had several emails wondering what happened and what's come about and really? The answer is nothing. I love him. He's my husband. I don't plan on ever getting a divorce unless he does something unforgivable (and yes, I have three or four things that fall under unforgivable). We're working through things. My baby fever has subsided. I think when I went off birth control, things got a little nutty. But I'm happy to say that I am happier than I've ever been the whole 8 years I was on birth control. The mood swings have declined. I'm not breaking out like I was afraid I would. A couple negatives are: I got cramps for the first time in 8 years and LORDY I forgot what they were like! And I bloat more around that wonderful time of the month now. But the benefits WAY outweigh the negatives that were going on so...I'm a pretty happy camper on that front. Noah and I have had some serious talks about kids lately and about our lifestyle. We have a ton of debt, we just bought a house, and the future of our country's economics aren't looking so great for selling our house anytime in the near future. I've realize that I'm not ready to be a mommy, and that if we wait too long and I can't ever be a mom, I will be OK. I don't need to panic or rush. I fully believe in a higher power and I know that when the time is right, we will. Or we wont. And if we don't, it wasn't meant to be. We have recently decided though, that in the next couple of years we want to be foster parents. There are so many kids out there who need love and it feels like the right thing for us to do. So...we're going to keep being married, keep loving each other, keep working on the house and our ever present pile of debt and....what happens is what happens. I am a SEVERE worrier and I'm trying (with the help of an occasional glass of wine) to let things go.

Snow Day!

Just a couple things before the weekend brings more of the insanity that is my life.

1. We had a snow day today. Apparently the roads were an impossible mess at 5 am when they had to call school. My district is so big that we don't delay. It's not a possibility. By the time my kids would get there, they would eat lunch, have recess, two hours of class, and go home. Which isn't long enough to count for a full day. So we don't delay, we just close. So...we closed and now, it's rainy. There's no ice anywhere and it's a balmy 43 degrees. Yay for no school!

2. Tonight is sushi night. I'm super stoked. I love sushi!

3. Mim found number crunchers online and I've been brushing up on my math skills today.

And....a bunch of stuff I can't remember apparently!

So...have a great weekend everyone. See you next week.
