I haven't posted lately not because nothing has happened. Just because I haven't felt like it, okay?! I am not going to make this post about how I am overworked etc. Even though I am. So instead what am I supposed to write about? How about some things I am consumed by currently (besides work).
Typically I stick to reading young adult fiction. So when I started this book I wasn't too sure how I was going to handle the more intellectual writing style. Its not that I can't understand it, it just takes more work. And when I read I like it to be for enjoyment not for learning. I work my brain too much during the day, I like to give it a rest. But once I got used to the writing, this book hasn't been a challenge because it is SO good. It reminds me of the Da Vinci Code in the fact that you can't tell fact from fiction. But this time its about Dracula. Though I have to say, it isn't for the weak. I have thought about sticking the book in the freezer once or twice.
Coughing has consumed my last week and half of life. I pride myself on being healthy and getting sick rarely. But this one got me good, KC kicked it in maybe 3 days. However, I think because I have continued to be stubborn and live my life through it I've been punished. I refuse to take a day off or to not exercise. I can see an end in sight though.
New TV definitely needs to be on this list. How did Big Bang theory not win any Emmy awards? Well, the answer, the Emmys are rigged. Point in Fact: Tina Fey didn't win for best actress in a comedy. But the Emmys did two good things, having Neil Patrick Harris host and having Jimmy Fallon present. In case you missed it: (I've watching this like 10 times, so funny)
But back to my point, The Big Bang Theory is hilarious and if you aren't watching it you need to. Also another show you need to watch...Glee! It's like High School Musical for adults. Krick, please tell me you watch this. Football players dancing "Single Ladies", wonderfully fantastic! Then you've got How I Met Your Mother, in which I love Jason Segel and Neil Patrick Harris. We even cancelled our Netflix because there is FINALLY too many good shows on that we can't keep up with the movies we order.
Exercise is always a big part of my life, but lately I have taken my daily hour more serious and really pressed for results. I have handled not having candy or desserts pretty good. And I feel like I have gotten rid of the "junky" feeling I've had for the last year. My clothes are fitting better, but haven't had to be replaced. And I am okay with that. I just like feeling good again.
peopleofwalmart.com has consumed our nights. KC gets on and shows me the best during commercials. If you don't get what it is from the name, I can't describe it to you, just check it out.
I always like to cook more in the fall than any other time of the year. I think it stems from my mother making so many of my favorite meals in the fall. She used to make Spinach Lasagna, German Stew, and French Dip. The cold weather just means hot soups and comfort foods. Lately I've been trying to make Thursday's soup night at our apartment. KC doesn't know it yet, but that is what is happening. Last week I created my own version of minestrone soup. It was a complete success. This week we are trying a white chili.
On the flip side, things that aren't consuming my life.
Trying to keep our elephanti yucca alive. Ya, it's pretty dead. They say if you can't take care of plant you shouldn't get a pet or have a kid. Maybe I subconsciously sabotaged the life of our plant. Either way, it's a goner.
Calling family and friends. Sorry guys, once again I have been terrible. Can you all forgive me?
And blogging. But you all know that by now.
