Just a Little Somethin to Break the Monotony


Whoever guesses where the title of this post comes from without looking it up rocks my world :rock:

Summer: With summer approaching I’m thinking about things we want to do this year, as we do every year but rarely end up doing any of it. Here is my list, which you don’t care about but I am sharing anyway.

  1. Yard Sale – such a pain in the ass but we really need to, I’m thinking first weekend in June.
  2. Kayaking – we say every year for the past 3 years we’ve lived at our house that we’ll boat on the lake, this year it will happen.
  3. Party – we are throwing a party this year as we’ve somehow done every year in our backyard, I’m thinking mid-July so mark your calendars.
  4. Travel – get out of the house and travel more, we are totally getting out to Rhode Island at least once.

C25k: So I fell off the wagon but not of my own accord, because I pulled a muscle or something in my calf because of climbing up a sand dune. However once I was healed I resumed my workout and even did an extra one of Sunday for good measure. I have not weighed myself yet and have no immediate plans to do so.

Superpets: I’ve gotten sucked into a few games on Facebook over time, every 6 months or so a new one comes along I just can’t get enough of. At one point it was Parking Wars, then it was PackRat and now it’s SuperPokePets. I love it, it’s really easy and too cute to boot as well. It’s totally pointless but not something you have to do all the time to keep up with it like PackRat. You can see my pet Aurora here.

Gravatars: I can’t get them to work and I hate asking people to fix them for me, for now I’ve gotten rid of them instead because they were just driving me crazy :twitchy:

    Every summer, we say we’re going to go boating on the lake that we live on, and haven’t yet!

    I think that the title is from Dj Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince’s (Will Smith) Song “Summer time”

    Keep up the great work on the C25k! I need to get back on next week.. I started out great but then died half way through the week… 🙁 Although On last Sunday I was volunteering for my Stop the Violence walk and I took was taking pictures of everyone walking… In order to make sure that I made it back before everyone else so I could get everyone coming into the finish line I ran about 1 1/2 miles of the course and didn’t die!!!!

    We have to have a yard sale this year or I will never get my office back and it will become the storage space. We won’t be home the first week of June so I think that it will be closer to the end of June for us.. 🙂

      @gemini, Yes, that be the song. Love that song. Yeah I’m not sure when we’ll do the yardsale, it’s going to be an entire weekend process.

    Sadly I thought I knew what it was from, then you started talking about summer so it was confirmed.

      @Amanda, this is an ok one to know, if it were Mili Vanilli then i’d be concerned.

    It is amazing at how fast time flies by. One moment you are making plans for the summer and then BAM! the summer is over and it is fall/winter. Hopefully you get to mark some of that stuff off the list!

      @themuttprincess, I’m still hoping that maybe winter will never come back.

    God! Yes, we need to have a yard sale too! Thanks for reminding me. What kinda stuff will you be selling?

      @Hannah, Oh boy, so much stuff. Some furniture. I’m determined to get rid of a purple bed that Manly Man has held onto so tight for all these years. I want to just rid ourselves of as much as possible. I have a bunch of pocketbooks I need to get rid of too.
