Some Randomness for Friday

I have been trying to exercise more frequently. Let me just preempt that statement by saying
Really I do not enjoy it, especially in the winter when it is too cold to go outside. We acquired an elliptical machine a while back it has been helping a lot. I get very bored doing it though. I have finally discovered the secret to not getting bored while working out on it. Iron Chef! Have you watched this show? I can seriously go through my entire work out watching it and not even realize that I am exercising. It is just fast paced enough to keep my attention and you really don't have to hear every little word that is said, which is good because that machine is LOUD! Try it some time its awesome!
I haven't been cooking much. This is a big deal for me. I love to cook but lately I just feel burned out on it. The good thing is that when I have been cooking lately I have been making pretty big meals, so there are plenty of left overs that I can heat up for dinner another night. So that's nice for me because then I don't have to cook a real dinner.
Vicious circle I think.
Every year my neighborhood has a New Years party. We have all the adults in one house and all the kids are at my house with sitters. Yes this idea was thought up by yours truly! It is one of the most fun things we do all year. I am looking forward to that more than Christmas. Is that bad?
So what do you do for New Years Eve?
Honestly I was so close to telling off a couple of people this week simply because they seem to feel that driving laws don't apply to them. One lady almost cause a three car accident by crossing a road when she clearly did not have the right of way. Another was parked next to my car in the school parking lot, which isn't a bad thing accept that it was a no parking zone next to a handicap spot. Yeah the one with the bright yellow stripes across it so that people who have wheel chairs have room to get into their cars. Yeah that's right, she parked there with her engine running and her kids in the back seat so she could run into the school to pick up her other kid! I was so close to telling her off. Its a good thing I am such a non confrontational person!
You don't believe me?
Well you obviously have never met me in person! I am sassy in private but a big chicken in person. Its sad really, you should pity me!
Does anyone else out there find that they have more people to pray for since joining Facebook? Now that I am in contact with more of my old friends and acquaintances and they all post their problems and issues, I find that there are a lot more people to pray for. Our list of people that we include in our prayers has increased about ten times what it was before FB.
Weird huh?
People always make fun of me for moving within my own neighborhood. Why is this? I live in an entirely different house. I could see making fun of me if I had purchased a house that was exactly like our old one but this one is bigger and has completely different floor plan. Plus I have the best neighbors ever so why would I move away from them?
Seriously I do have the best neighbors ever, hands down they are way better than yours! We even get together for dessert night about every other month. Everyone brings something and we all just sit around and talk and ignore our kids while they destroy someones house.
Its awesome!
Has anyone noticed how often I use the word AWESOME? Or how often I use this symbol !!!!!!? I may have to start keeping count.
Everyone have a great weekend!

Great neighbors and a great ward is why I will likely stay in my crackerbox house till the day I die.
Sad really. I hate my house........

I agree with everything you said. well, except exercising. I love and miss it now that I can't do it anymore. Remember when we used to get up and walk, and I flaked on you all the time?

I'm excited for NYE. C and I already decided to go with you guys again. I assume its are Robb & Crystals?

It's not that I hate exercise, it's that I can no longer do the kind of exercise I like to do, like crazy dancing, or running and jumping over things. But how's complaining, at least I can still walk and the treadmill is great in the cold weather. I's just a habit to sit at this computer and read and type all day instead. :) or read a book. Turning up the volume helps to hear over the machine, and whatever cooking show is on suits me just fine. Those left overs though...... temptation unless I put them in the freezer pronto!!

We are sleeping when the ball falls. I know boring. That's what happens when the body gets older than the spirit. Hehehe! We will enjoy the start of a new year in health, hopefully....
