Pretty Random

Well before long we may be looking for an ark around here. It has been raining all day, and pretty hard at that. It's not expected to stop either anytime soon. I love the rain, I just don't love what it does to my hair. I look like a wet rat today.

I decided to start working next week only half days, and then the last week of school I'm not going to work at all. The realization that I could go into labor early has set in, and I still have so many things I need to take care of before then. I just felt that taking a little time off would be best. I am really looking forward to it. The kids will still be in school, so I will have a little time for myself.

It's getting harder and harder to get around. I was thinking of renting a motorized cart to drive around. At Carillon all the residents always drove "Jazzy Prides" with stereos on them. They were kind of dangerous drivers. Those things can go pretty fast! And I love the elderly dearly, but they think that they own the road with those things. Come on, we've all seen them in Wal-mart where they act like the commander of the aisle and are oblivious to anyone around them shopping.

Last night we went walking at the track. It's practically in my back yard. Madi was so funny. She ran the entire time, taking periodic breaks. She wanted to keep up with this lady jogging. She would run along side of her, and fall back a little, and then pick up her speed. She'd rest for a minute, and then say, "well I gotta go." And take off running. She probably ran 1/2 a mile in total. This morning she woke up and said, my legs hurt. When I dropped her off at school this morning, she put her backpack on, and said, "well I've got an important job today. I better go!" I love it that she loves school and gets excited about it. I hope it stays that way!

Not much else is going on. I finished "The Scarlett Thread" by Francine Rivers today. I liked it a lot. It was good. Now I need another book. I think I am going to try her series, "The Mark of the Lion." I have heard a lot about those books. I've always liked to read, I just never did. But I don't really watch t.v. anymore. It just doesn't interest me. I still watch "Lost" but that is really the only show I watch that I used to. Well and I guess not having cable kind of limits your choices. I could get it hooked up, but I just really don't care to. I'd rather read or write or do something else. I never thought I could live without MTV...I love their reality shows. Except for anything with Bam Margera. I can't stand that guy. I would kill him if he was my son. But turns out, I can live without MTV. And I'm probably better off without it! Well this was a really random post. I hope you all have a good week!

Hey I love Lost too!! Tim and his friend Ryon call each other every week after the show and I always make fun of him, but the truth is I'm hooked too.
It has been raining here alot too. And storming, Tim is gone for a couple of days, so I am keeping the flashlight w/ me at all times, just in case.

Glad to hear you are doing well. I have never gotten into Lost but I did go to school with Josh Holloway and his family still lives here in my town. He was always a looker. (lol)

I heard about all your rain. My friend is supposed to close on her house there in TX on Friday but they have not been able to get all the work done because of the rains, so she doesn't know what is going to happen.

Love and Hugs, Lyndy

ILOVE reading your blog. I can hear your voice talking as I read and it makes me feel connected with you even though I don't get to see you as often anymore. Maybe I can come see you during your week off? Bring you a drink or something? Miss you.

The whole pregnancy thing is getting harder on me too. My body just hurts, I don't remember feeling like this with Brooke & Meagan. I'm getting older!! At least your out walking the track. I don't even do that!! Don't you just love the rain!! Well, have a good week, call if you need me, if there's anything I can do!! Love you. Amanda

Larissa,

I LOVE the idea of renting a cart to drive around. Sounds like something we would have (or, in our case, should have) done in college:).

hahaha!

I sure do hope you keep feeling well and strong.

I cannot believe you are so close to having your baby. I hope you don't get to uncomfortable!

Would it be inappropriate for me to reant a "Jazzy ride" too??? I guess that's the epitomy (SP?) of laziness. As for MTV, the only thing your missing is hearing Brooke CONSTANTLY whine about something on Real World. I sent them a text to express my hatred for her, but now they keep texting me with junk mail. Anyway, I'll catch you up on the reality world later.
