...even though I must work tomorrow - blah!! My back/butt started hurting again yesterday - must pay attention to posture and stretches!! I am enjoying yoga again so I don't want to stop but I just need to be more careful.

Joe and I have been getting up at the crack to run in the mornings. He is a crazed, obsessed boy. I am anxious for him to do well on his half-Ironman in Galveston on Sunday. THAT would be very good positive reinforcement that NO DRINKING is a good thing! I am so proud of him this month - I need to go pick him up a little surprise for his race and for his dedication.

That's all for now. I am just gearing myself up for a crazy busy day.

Yoga does a body good

Today was the 4th day in a row that I practiced yoga. A record for me! And I feel pretty good. My back definitely isn't hurting as much, if at all, and I was finally able to get into some twisty poses myself today. I am back!

Paper junkie

I think I have more patterned paper than I could ever use in my lifetime. In multiple lifetimes. And I want more! My problem stems from the fact that I love pretty colors and patterns but I want to use them for the "perfect layout." Unfortunately none of my layouts are perfect so I just end up hoarding the paper. I need to use what I have.

I promised myself I wouldn't buy any more paper or embellishments until I made 50 layouts. That promise has be (somewhat) kept. Now, really NO MORE PAPER until at least 100 layouts/projects made. Now that I have this in print somewhere, I need to be honest. (And the no more paper doesn't count the new Love, Elsie papers I just preordered ;) !!)

Photo a day

My goal this month has been to take a picture of me and my sweetie every day. We've done great so far - it helps that we've been working out together some mornings so we have been having breakfast together and leaving for work together. Although you don't change very much in one month, I like to see how we just slightly different everyday.

good times with good friends

My good friend Cindy is in town this weekend. She flew in 'cause she got some free tickets to the Scissor Sisters show on Friday night. Unfortunately I couldn't spend any time with her yesterday because I worked all day (blah) but we did have dinner with 15 of our closest friends at Dolce Vita. After much food and drinks (they have the BEST chocolate espresso martinis there - I actually had 2!), we went to The Flat for a drink. The bar was a little slow but we got to catch up some. Darryl and Cindy went home and Marc, Matt and I headed to Guava Lamp for more drinks and merriment. The boys dropped me off at home around 1:45 this morning; Joe actually woke up at 4:45 to get ready for his half marathon (ugh - better him than me!).
Unfortunately I am definitely feeling the effects of the glass of wine, 2 martinis and 2 vodka tonics I had last night. I am drinking water and trying to get my a$$ up and going - need to hit the grocery store and yoga before Joe gets home. I hope I can make it through yoga - I think an aspirin and some coffee should be the answer!

Losing my mojo

Don't know why

Haven't been feeling like bloggin' lately

Still reading all my scrappy blogs

Those girls are so clever and witty

Me, not so much.

But it's all good.

I'm having a year to remember.

Not everyone understands house music

It's a spiritual thing
It's a body thing
It's a soul thing.
This is me, shakin' it at our first visit to the Roxy in New York. Got to love those zebra pants and the platforms!

I love AI

Although the boys were kind of sucky last night, the girls rocked it tonight. Last year I loved the boys much better. This year the girls rule!

Bad blogger

I am so lazy - I get out of the habit of doing something and it's hard to get back in. I think it's the guilt thing. So I need to let go of the guilt and just DO IT!

I am (finally) working on the journaling class that I took last year at BPS. I really would like to add more words to my scrapbook pages. Although I love just creating a fun layout, I want to leave a little something behind. If anything were to ever happen to me (knock on wood), I want to people I hold nearest and dearest to my heart how much they mean to me.

My first is to scrapbook this photo. I love this photo. It reminds me of more carefree days, with some of my best friends in the whole world. I don't get to see Shaila or Varsh enough (luckily I see Bill at least once or twice a year) but I love them forever. We look so happy and carefree, but why are we wearing those ties??
