Books litter the floor

All of them read at least once if not more

She started reading when she was young

At first just to broaden her vocabulary

But now they are read to pass time

To go places she will never go

To escape reality for a while

To get lost in a good book

What a day she would have

Curled up in a chair

Turning page after page

Till the story is complete

Getting so immersed in the book

Name called time and time again

With no answer to be had

Because in her head

She was in a different land

Only snapping back to reality

When someone tapped her on her shoulder

Many authors have been read

A few made the list to read again

More made the list of never again

Never regretting giving them a try

For how would she know if she liked them

if for not giving them a go

Today you can almost always find her

In a chair of her choice

With her nose in a book

It may be a favorite book

Or one she just bought

she will enjoy it just the same

WHen the Cat's away the mice shall play

Richard has been working a lot of overtime at work the past couple of weeks. This week alone he will have about 65 hours on the week when he gets off work today. He also has to work this weekend so he will have more overtime for next week as well. This leaves me alone in the apartment pretty much all day, with nothing to do. I have spent a lot of time with my mom once she gets off work which helps with the evenings but the days are just so boring. I have no housework to do because I did it all on Monday and Tuesday, I did the laundry Sunday, instead of doing it on Monday and that just threw my entire week off. It also doesn't help that I have no new books to read.

I was trying to read a book my brother let me borrow but I just can't get into it. Every time I start to read it I suddenly find myself getting really tired and want to take a nap, no matter what time it is, even if I have just woken up I get really tired, which means that this book just isn't for me to read. I gave it a good shot too, I made it well into 100 pages which is more than I give most books. I do believe a trip to the bookstore in needed so I can find some new books to read. My favorite author James Patterson doesn't have a new book coming out till the end of June, his last one came out in April and I finished it in like 3-5 days. I think its time for me to start another V.C. Andrews book series, plus her books are really cheap so I can get a few of them.

I have also finally given up on trying to eat scrambled eggs, there is just no hope for me there. Scrambled eggs are evil I tell you EVIL! I for some reason was really craving them so I made some knowing that my body wasn't going to be happy with me. I don't know what it is about scrambled eggs but man o man do they upset my stomach, I have been fighting the urge to barf most of the day, I am finally starting to feel normal again. I just don't understand it, I can eat any other form of eggs and be fine but if I eat scrambled my stomach gets upset and I get the over whelming urge to hurl. So no more scrambled eggs for me..NONE, not even one bite!

Summer days, and Kramer wars

It has been absolutely beautiful here the sun has been shinning, birds singing and hot weather. I love all of it besides the hot weather making the apartment a sweat box, the later in the day it gets, the warmer the apartment gets so by 6-7pm its almost 80 in here. I have been putting ice in Kramer's water dish so he has cold water, poor cat you know when he is warm cause he sprawls on the floor and doesn't move. all the windows are open to an extent because of the black cat coming around and attacking Kramer through the windows we can't have them open all the way, just enough to where Kramer can hardly put his paw through to the screen unless we are sitting next to the window then its wide open.

Yesterday I went for my second walk, I know I said I would be going everyday but I got busy this weekend with Aces games and I figured walking up and down the stairs at the stadium was good enough exercise for the weekend. Richard came with me last night and said he would go with me every time I go. I tend to go around 8pm when its not to hot and Richard has had time to relax after work. We just go up the street a bit and back but its about a half hour 45 minute walk depending on how far we go. And yes I woke up to my left foot protesting the fact that I walked yesterday. But you know what, tough for it, it loosened up after I hobbled around on it for a couple of minutes.

I think I finally broke Kramer of wanting 2 cans of wet food a day, I haven't given him his second can for 5 nights already, he just doesn't ask for it anymore so why give it to him. Only down side of giving him his one can in the morning is when he decides he wants it he has no qualms about coming into the bedroom and meowing at me till I get up to give it to him. Its an on going fight between me and the cat to see who gets their way. He starts his meowing at 7am and continues till I get up and feed him. some days that's at 8am and other days like today it was at 10:45am cause I can ignore him if I am tired enough. It's funny though cause he tries his hardest to get me up, by walking on me, meowing in my ear, patting my face with his paw, licking me, and headbutting me, to just laying on me and purring really loud.

exercise glorious exercise oh and Oragami too

I have decided that every day I am going to go for a short walk. I started today and ended up doing a 30 minute walk, which isn't a bad start. When I got back to the apartment however my feet were killing me and I was thinking how the heck did I talk myself into going for a walk? Oh well I'm in it for the long haul thats all I gotta say about that.

I also believe that my really expensive shoes are working, my mom and Richard have noticed that my stomach is slimming down! I haven't lost any more weight but I am getting smaller so I do believe I am gaining muscles. who knows really but something is working in my favor and I like it!

So I have learned how to do some pretty simple oragami today while being bored and not having anything better to do. Yup i was that bored. Sad, yes I know.

Time flies by so quickly

Today my friend Kaori who I have known for about 15 years, Richard and I got together and hung out for a couple of hours today. She is up visiting for a while from Texas and brought her 3 month old baby boy Peter up with her. We went and saw her mom at her work and she was reminding us of how Kaori and I would make tunnels in the snow when we were kids and now we are both grown up and married and she has a baby. Where oh were did the time go?

In less than a month Richard and I will be celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary! 5 years!!! again where did the time go? It just seems like time flies and all of the sudden you are years down the road from where you started head spinning going whoa how the heck did I get here? I of course am madly in love still with the man I married and now thanks to my friend Kaori he really wants a baby, so I told him you help me loose weight we can have a baby. I know a lot of it lies on me to loose the weight and I too want to have a baby with him but I know it will happen when the time is right. Just hopefully before I’m 30!

red heads and sun do not mix. Parking Problems

So yeah we have been having wonderfully nice sunny days pretty much all week, weather has been in the upper 50-60s. I went outside today for all of an hour. One freaking hour and now my arms and face are sun burned. My arms are worse than my face but still an hour! It has been said that red heads burn easier than any other hair type, not every one knows this but I have red hair. Mind you its only red highlights but I guess it still counts because I burn way to freaking easy. Oh well for the rest of the summer I will put sun screen on.

At my apartment complex, each apartment has their own assigned spot to park, that way we know that we will have at least one spot guaranteed. Anyways since our neighbors next door to us have moved in which was last I believe October we have been having problems with people parking in our spot and other neighbors spots or behind our cars so we can't get out. I went and complained to the land lord about it last November and she gave me letters to put on the cars when I see them parked where they don't belong. I have used these letters time and time again and still their friends don't get the idea that they aren't supposed to be parking where they park. Today Richard and I came home from going to his work to see a friend and there is a honda element I believe is the car parked in the spot next to ours but over the line so we can't safely park in our spot. i got the letter walked up the the lady who was in the car and calmly explained why she couldn't park there. She didn't take the letter, she said she was parked there cause she had to go to the bathroom. She did move her car but didn't get out. Richard and I went off again to go get dinner, when we returned she was gone but I have a feeling that once we left she moved back to where she was. If I see this car in any spot besides visitor parking I am going to call the land lord, cause the letters aren't workiing.
