Going to my head

For those of you who haven't seen the haircut, I look like a pixie now. I cut it in September, much to my dismay, when I went in for a trim he cut it SHORT. Long story short, 5 months later and in 2007 it's finally where I want it. Cute, sassy, and pixie like. Matt loves it, family loves it, friends love it, it's going to my head. But I have to say, I love it too (finally).

There is a man yelling in the apartment below, something about "I can't believe this!" and crying and screaming and moaning. It's kind of psychotic actually. I'm not sure if it's real or he's a talented actor, but it's really freaking me out.

A few strange things

1. I went to get my hair done yesterday, and stopped in at the coffee shop next door to get some lunch. The lady at the counter asked if it was to go or if I was going to eat in the shop. I said I was going to get my hair done, and she said I could go next door and she'd bring it over! I was kind of surprised, I mean, that wasn't necessary, and I told her so. Apparently it's normal between these two businesses. So I took my lunch over myself, totally amazed at the random hospitality she offered me.

2. Today I went to Fred 62 for lunch with Matt and the Editor of Gamers 2, and we were taken care of by a very sweet waitress. She had an eastern european accent that reminded us of a vampire, and Dan kept saying to us that he really wanted her to bite him in the neck. She was cute, but I thought that was a strange desire. To each his/her own, I guess.

It's so interesting to go back a few years and read old posts. How naive I was about that dreadful job at the temple of doom, how well mom was doing, how homesick I was when I first moved here. The strains and joys of the past few years. Sometimes I forget how capable I am, how capable my friends and family are, of amazing things. We are stronger than we think. And I'm a little happier now, at this moment, knowing that if I can get through all that previous stuff, then my life now isn't so bad.

Tell me who is more exhausted. I'm taking a poll. I vote for the human. He just got back from the mall with his wife and spent hours shopping among crowds and screaming kids (we picked the wrong time to go on a Saturday - it was naptime).

I'm a officially a grown up

I'm so grown up now. Why, you ask? Because I'm excited about the new vaccum cleaner I got for Christmas. It's not just any vaccum cleaner. It's a robot. A roomba to be exact. And I love it. I'm vaccuming 2x a week now. All I do is push a button and off it goes. :D

After 6 days of coughing, sneezing, and other fun things that come with being sick with a nasty cold, I'm finally better. So I went to boot camp yesterday morning and was so exhuasted I took a 3 hour nap and then slept 10 hours last night. And I'm still tired. Did I over do it? Maybe. My legs are like lead - I can barely move, but I'll get back into the swing of things, and before I know it I'll be able to run a marathon, or at least around the track once before stopping to walk and pant like a dog. I'm so out of shape. It's pathetic.

In my hometown of Seattle, it's been snowing like crazy. I don't know if ya'll have heard (and that y'all is thanks to Mary, my friend from Texas. She's had an influence on me) but it's been snowing like mad. Lows of 20 or lower and the highs are only in the 30s. Now before those of you from the midwest say "oh, you are such wimps, it's only snow!", consider that Seattle is a very hilly city and dangerous to drive when icy. Schools shut down only after a few inches, people stay home from work, it's crazy. But when you're a kid, what better way to spend a snow day than my sister did - going up to Whistler to snowboard.

And a very happy belated birthday to Jenny. I hope it was happy!

Second Round

I'm sick, again, this time with laryngitis. It really hit me yesterday, go figure that yesterday was also my first day of acting class and I had a yelling scene. Don't worry, I can still talk. My voice is just raspy and a little sexy. Hehe.

I have been thinking about Mom quite a bit these days. About motherhood in general and how I'm feeling about my friends who are moms and who are pregnant. And while I am so happy for them, there's a tiny bit of jealousy (sometimes not so tiny) that their kids get their moms, that they get to be the Mom and nurture their children. Granted, I take the 2 year old thought sometimes in thinking "It's not fair!" but all of the Moms that I know are good moms, so in the long run, I'm not so jealous. But if I don't respond and oogle over your adventures as motherhood, it's just because I'm missing being mothered by my mom.

Playing hostess

Stephanie/Paige is in town until Tuesday which is why I haven't written in awhile. She arrived last Wednesday and we took off for Santa Barbara wine country for 2 days, went to a wedding reception, and spent today in Venice Beach. Tomorrow is the fashion district downtown, and Tuesday night she leaves. :( We'll definitely go to Rodeo drive, maybe even Malibu.

I'll write more details after she leaves. Right now I just want to enjoy her being here. We're having a great time.

Okay, thanks to Jenny, I now feel the need to post my new years resolutions because maybe that way I'll accomplish at least one or two of them.

1. Exercise three times a week (which is going to happen when bootcamp starts next Monday);

2. Eat less sugar, more protein and fresh veggies/fruits. Only one junk food day allowed.

3. Eat out only once a week, or not at all;

4. More date nights with hubby;

5. Keep in better touch with family and friends;

6. Pick my battles;

7. READ books, not just skim through in order to get a vague idea;

8. Get books from the libary. I can't afford them and my bookshelf is full. I don't have room in this apartment for another one;

9. I'm a grown up. Need to be asleep at this time. Go to bed earlier. Preferably before midnight.

I think that should do it. Wish me luck!
