Things I'm thinking about....

* I saw the Twilight movie tonight, all by myself, and I liked it. Some of you may think going to a movie by yourself is weird, but it is strangely empowering. Someone told me a while back that I needed to try it -to be comfortable just being with myself. I liked it.

* I have a new goal to get into a routine/schedule. I've been floating through my days for too long. Wish me luck!

*My quads are killing me! A friend of Brad's has been putting us through workouts the past couple of nights after the kids are asleep, and my body has not been properly exercised in so long....I'm feeling it. Again, wish me luck! I SO need to get healthier.

* How can a tiny 2 yr old be so exhausting?? I'm having new mothering experiences everyday right now. It's a good thing she's so darned cute. ;)

* I love and miss my friends. One thing about Facebook and blogging and all that is that I get to feel like I have my friends right here with me sometimes, and then I remember that they aren't here. Kinda sad, but I'm so grateful for the contact. It's so rewarding to catch up with high school friends, college friends, friends from different churches I've attended, and family, too. I'm really thankful for these technological advances. Internet and DVR....two of the best inventions ever!!!!

Hey, good luck on it all. Yeah, I'm trying to get on a schedule. I'd be trying to lose weight if I could just get this kid out of me. But when I do, I am going back to my old friend calorie-count.com. You should try it! It tracks your weight, everything you eat, your workouts (calories burned etc). I love it! And it's free!

I agree... Internet and DVR! It is so awesome to stay in touch. Good luck on your new adventures. I am also trying to get my body into better shape. I've lost 13 pounds so far.

When I was pregnant with Brooklynn and we had just moved to Vegas I would go to lunch all by myself with a book. Vaughn thought that it was so weird but I loved it. Also, I love to shop by myself!! Good for you for going to the movies alone.

Props on the exercising. I need to get things toned up now that I have the all clear from the dr. Good for you!!

Amen to keeping friendships strong via blogging!!

Thanks for the suggestion, Sarah. And, way to go Deon! Amber, if only I had your determination and talent in this department ... you all inspire me.

I know what you mean. I really enjoy blogging and facebook as well. Just think you got me started on both. Thanks!

Man, you've got a lot going on, and it sounds like you're trying out a whole new you! Self improvement and learning new things is always fun. I like you just how you are though, too, in case the new routine doesn't work out or something. :)
