Ohh lord today.

6:00 am: Wake up, pour coffee, have two sips before getting dan to help me take the dogs out.
7:00am: Getting dressed for class
7:30am: On the way to class. Morning traffic. Annoying people.
8:00am: Test in Human Sexual Behavior (PSYC 300).
8:45am: Leave classroom feeling defeated.
9:00am: Dan texts me about getting new car insurance. FML.
9:30am: Oophie (grandmother) calls to remind me about taking her to the doctor.. for the 10th time in the past 3 days. Wants to know if I'm awake yet. UHM YES, I HAVE BEEN UP FOR A WHILE NOW.
10:00am: Pay water bill. Paid $150, still owe $62. Bill is in dads name and he doesn't seem to want to transfer it to us.. so I have to go pay in person.. and am often late.
10:20am: Leave to get Oophie for her 11:00am appointment.. she wanted me at her house by 10:30.. the place is literally a 10 minute drive from her house. Or mine.
10:40am: We arrive. And wait. Oophie talks about black people trick or treating (whilst an African American woman sits infront of us). Oophie talks about how large one woman is. Whilst woman is in ear shot. And other larger woman is definitely in ear shot.
11:00am: She gets called back. There is a God.
11:15am: I remember I got a bill for my last appointment, like a week ago, and my insurance should have covered it. So I go ask to speak with someone. And do. And it wasn't cleared up. That reminds me.. I still need to figure this out.. grr.
11:30am: Nurse comes out and explains to me my grandmother is past due for a mamogram and I should probably be keeping up with her doctors appointments seeing as she's too old to do that and doesn't remember when she's had them.
11:45am: Call mom and have to scream at her due to low signal in the OB/GYN's office.. the other patrons so loved that. She tells me to go ahead and make an appointment for Oophie, so I do.
12:00pm: Leave doctors office.
12:05pm: Arrive at bank so Oophie can do something and get me a roll of quarters for the meter (SWEET). She told me it was the next turn like 234545654 times. We made it safely.
12:15pm: Publix to pick up her prescriptions. This take a hot minute because Oophie somehow manages to convince the lady she's Lucy. Le sigh.
12:30pm: Walk Oophie to door, head to psychology study for a point of extra credit.
12:45pm: I am early. FML.
12:50pm: The people get there. Take impossibly boring text where I read paragraphs on a screen with my head on one of those things where your chin rests on one piece and your forehead on another? Made my back hurt. Took an hour.
1:40pm: Leave study, pick up snacks at Russel House. Sugar free Redbull and cashews.
2:00pm: Class. Forgot my notebook. Had to borrow paper. Ran out of paper halfway through lecture. Didn't care. Just stopped taking notes. Trying not to fall asleep.
3:30pm: Having made it back to the Barnwell building, I prepare for another study for extra credit. I'm early, appointment is at 4. Call mom, get nasty looks at people for being loud I presume. Take the convo to the hall, stick my hand in a cobweb trying to sit down. Le sigh. Convo over.
4:00pm: Take another study. Not as horrible as first. Lady says I did really well on some parts :)
4:40pm: Leave study. Walk to car. Ticket on car. Curse a little bit. Make a U-turn and head to the chiropractors office.
4:50pm: At chiropractors office. Tired. They have an extra sheet of paper work for me to fill out. Yay. Receptionist is mean as usual. Beeyatch.
5:00pm: Massage part of appointment.. ahhh..
5:15pm: Traction, ahhh...
5:30pm: Get called back. Chiropractor says I look "grown up" because I'm in jeans and heels. I don't know weither to be flattered or not? Do I usually look like an awkward tween? Probably. She cranks on my neck. Gunna be sore.
5:50pm: Head home. Dan's texting me wondering where I am.
6:00pm: Home. Take shower, get in jams, pour glass of wine.


And I did this all in 4 inch heels. Why wear heels? Because my grandmother thinks I'm fat and I was trying to look skinny. I thought I'd have time to run home and change at some point. HA. Shoes in question, totally worth it. They made my jeans go from looking like this:

To this:

Oh what's that? You can't tell the difference? STFU.


Things to smile about today:

1. Got to see Marcus Lattimore.. hims so cute. What's that? You don't know who he is? FOR SHAME. He is the lovely young man attending my fine university who is up for a Heisman this year. Swoon. He was late to class though. He always is. Think it's because he doesn't want to get dry humped.
2. Coming home to clean crates thanks to the hubs. Idk what I would have done if I had to do that today as well.. well actually I probably would have just done it. But nice that I didn't have to!
3. Didn't wake up to dog poo this morning :)
4. I'm not pregnant :)
5. Massage.. ahhh...
6. Wine... ahhh...
7. Victorias Secret jams and a hubs who makes money so I can buy them. And a part time job so I can buy them.

Ever have one of those days where you're annoyed for kind of no reason? Yeah that's me. And idk why. And hubs wants to "talk it through" and I just want him to go to bed so I can peruse the internet and think about other things besides ho grumpy I am. Then I think, "Oh god. We're gunna get divorced because I don't want to talk about why I'm grumpy." then I think, "Don't be stupid. That's a dumb reason to get divorce." But then... this book I'm reading for my psychology of marriage class is talking about all the shitty things married couples do to each other and how if you lose touch with your spouse you're doomed. And so then I get to thinking we're doomed.. and then... I get annoyed again. Maybe it's the whole first year of marriage crap where you think about everything too much? Or maybe that's just me.. everyone else just has a blissful sex filled 365 days of marriage after the honeymoon. Idk. UGH.

AND. Is it just me or do men WHINE SO MUCH?! His stomach hurts.. ALL. THE. TIME. And I am so OVER IT.

Vent over.

Posting more often.

I am going to become a blogger. Damn it.

Today I was LAZY. But I did make granola from scratch with this recipe except I used raw cashews, almonds, some other kind of date, walnuts and cranberries. So in effect, I really didn't follow the recipe at all. And it definitely tasted like it. So then I made bread in our bread maker which turned out good as it always does. Then I felt like a fat ass and took one of our diet pills from the store I work at and felt like poo poo for the rest of the day. those things make me feel like I'm dying. I swear. but I do loose my appetite. Probably because I think I'm about to vom all over errything. Or like I'm dying of a heart attack. One of the two. Or a combination. I'ma go with a combination.

Not looking forward to going around town and handing out business cards to scrape up some more business for the store. Le sigh. Worst part of my job. But I love getting PAID. Money is awesome. I'm such a gold digger.

Still haven't finished thank you notes. I suck at life. The end.

Mother's Day.

1. Being able to spend Mother's Day with my mom. I know a lot of people wish they could be with their mothers and but do not hat this luxury.
2. Having my mom be my best friend. A lot of people hate their mothers, some with good reason and some without, but I am glad I am not one of those people.
3. My mom likes my husband. That would so suck if I had one of those spouses that everyone hated (especially my mom because that would just kill me).
4. My mom is super cute, hopefully I'll be super cute when I'm 50.

Love you Ma.

1. Warm weather.
2. Johnson and Johnson's baby lotions, cheap and awesome.
3. New phone. I'm digging it.
4. An attic fan. Think I've already done that one but really, it's awesome.
5. Our windows. Our house maybe be old and crappy in many ways, BUT our windows are relatively new and that allows us to open pretty much all the windows in the house for TONS of fresh air!

I just entered alltumbledown's giveaway for free skinrx stuff and I really hope I win. Dan and I are so broke and I'm feeling a bit down about it today. Luckily I did plan our meals for the next two weeks (excluding fridays because duh that's happy hour) and only spend $43 buying all the groceries for it (with a $40 gift card, it was originally $84) yippy!

Now I am off to write thank you notes for said gift card and other wedding gifts.. I'm a little late on the draw with that. Ooops!

Five Reasons.

Saw on one blog I read that she has a friend that does another blog who writes 7 things she loves about her life every day. Went to that blog and it died around november 2010.. RIP. I do think it's a good idea though. So many people don't realize all the things they have to be thankful for and it's quite upsetting to me. I mean really people, come on. Oooh boo hoo you're life is just so awful because you you're so fatttt. Get over yourself (P.S. I totally do this too, so don't feel bad.). I figure this way I can stop being one of those people.. as much? Here goes nothing.

1. My husband knows how to fix all things computer and he will stop his games to help me.
2. I have not one but two houses.
3. Even though my dogs get on my nerves I love them and they love me. Doggy love.
4. My husband can afford to pay our bills.
5. I am so fortunate to be able to go to school that I take it for granted and get annoyed by it.

I'm only doing 5. Remember I said 7 a day blog died? Maybe she shoulda just done 5..

P.S. Today was quite annoying.

Tuesday, January 18, 2011


If you know me you know I gave up meat a long time ago, when I was 16 on January 1st as my new years resolution. I did this for two main reasons, one being that my gallbladder doesn't function properly and because of that, high fat foods gave me an extremely painful belly ache. The second reason is that I feel really strongly about the ethical treatment of animals. When my hair started falling out due to lack of protein and was about a year into my relationship with Dan who is allergic to legumes (any kind of bean, including peanuts and soy products) I decided to start eating chicken. I decided chicken. I don't really have a good excuse for this other than chickens have smaller brains so I didn't feel as bad about eating them as I did cows and pigs (we used to have a pet pig). And now, after stumbling upon videos like this:


I just don't feel right about supporting factory farms who produces dairy and meat from abused animals and who participate in inhumane practices. Because of this, I started educating myself on local farms that are grass fed, free range animals with a ton of acreage and hold themselves to high standards of food production.

I did some research and came upon Butter Patch Jerseys that sells to 14 Carrot here in Lexington. When I got there I got hooked up with a guy named Lou and he gave me tons of information on local meats, cheeses, eggs, and raw milk. EEEK!

Here's a quick run down of what he told me (I took notes..):
-Butter Patch- Raw milk delivered on Thursdays, good pork and beef.
-Caw Caw-Not as good as Butter Patch but Butter Patch's production has been low lately so they sell out super quick. Caw Caw would be his second choice for beef and pork.
-Eubanks- Good beef.
-Wilmore Farms- Eggs and raw milk

With this knowledge in hand I went hunting to find something good. I ended up getting.. BACON! WHAT?! I feel nutso. As far as cost goes, this bacon was $8/lb. So yes it's most expensive but think about what you're getting, fresh, unsalted, hormone free, delicious, ethically treated animals! I feel so good about this. I'm so excited.. well.. and nervous. I'll be more excited once I have some and don't puke. The meat comes frozen and you can't thaw it until the day you want to use it or let it thaw in the fridge about 12 hours before you want to use it. There are no preservatives so you really can't just let it chillax in the fridge for weeks. No bueno.

If all goes well, I shall start introducing meat into our diet slowly. But lets be clear here, I shan't be eating meat from mysterious sources.. only little animals where I know they had a happy life and were able to do happy animal things. Because I'm a tree hugging hippie. What up.
