Lots of nada and an award!

  • Today is Lauren's birthday. So... make sure you get on over there and wish her a happy birthday!!

  • Taj's big toe gave the family prayer last nite. You may remember that we often have special guests for prayer...

  • Liv wore panties yesterday. No, we aren't potty training, she just wanted to. That lasted about 40 minutes before she peed all over the kitchen floor. She quickly assured me "It's ok. It's ok."

  • I'm feeling a little better about the whole ex drama. Today anyway. I've realized I just have a lot of issues to work thru that I never had to deal with before because I wasn't around him so I could block a lot of things out. Like the whole cheating thing- it really screwed me up and that pisses me off. I'm distrustful of people I should trust. If I hear a woman in the background when I'm talking to Sei on the phone, my stomach drops. Crap like that. That isn't fair and it makes me really mad. He has no idea the issues I have because of his actions. Now I'm getting mad again. Breathe. Breathe. Another reason kickboxing is good for me.

  • I want to lose weight. I threw out my scale because I get obsessed with the numbers, but now my pants are fitting white-trashy and I feel gross. I need to do something and I just don't know *what*. I mean, I know what I need to do, I just don't want to. I like to eat. I like to eat a lot. I like to eat candy. I'm a carb addict of the worse kind. Kickboxing will help, but that's only twice a week. I want to run a couple of times a week... I just haven't. :( HELP! Do y'all know of any candy diets that work?

  • I'm having fun writing memories on my 76 to Now blog. I hope y'all are liking it too!!

  • Last but not least, my twin gave me an award. I truly appreciate it. I've been given a few other awards in the last couple of months and with all the moving crap I just plum forgot what awards I got and who gave them to me. Chel is right- I suck. ;) Anyway... it is my turn to pass on this great honor. Here are the blogs I chose that I think are muy excellente!!: Klin- because she gives me therapy at no charge. Yvonne- because she always leaves me sweet comments and posts things that make me want to be a better person. and... Nobody- because even when she says she's posting about nothing I laugh so hard I cry. Congrats y'all!! I could really give this award to anyone on my blog roll because obviously I think your blog is excellent!!!

Chel said... you really don't suck... you only have moved your entire family across many states and had Christmas and birthday's and everything that goes along with moving... You're actually quite awesome!!

I made the meatball sandwiches! Can I just say EASY and YUM?!?!

Also, I'm feeling you on the get fit thing. I was doing SO GOOD. The whole month of January was terrible for me and my jeans are a little tighter and I look a little flabbier after all my hard work. It probably didn't help that I ate a theater size of Hot Tamales tonight either.

I need a candy diet too.

utmommy said...

I'll go on the candy diet with both of you! Wouldn't that be nice?

aubrey said...

sorry about liv peeing all over the floor. and the ex drama being up front and center now that you live by him. what exactly is white trashy in the pants fitting category? i think enough kickboxing can take care of that, no? you totally deserved the E rating. congrats!

Liam's Mom - Gina said...

You never fail to make me smile. I am sorry about the pants fitting white trashy, but I can only laugh when you say it that way. I don't have any candy diets to hand you. I wish there was a better way to cut out the carbs. It's just not right how restricted most diets are. On the biggest loser the guy trainer was like, you don't have to cut back, you can have dessert... ONCE A WEEK! Yeah right! I eat dessert 3 times a day, man! What is he thinking?

Yvonne said...

Figure out the candy diet and you'll have quite the following!!!

I LOVE your 76 to Now blog--it's so fun.

Congrats on the Award--very well deserved. I appreciate so much your kind words and the award.

Jean Knee said...

I like reading your posts, Tori cuz it's like we're talking on the phone about anything that strikes us.

If you eat only candy you'll lose weight, but that's all ya can eat.

Amanda said...

Sorry about the ex and the peeing. At least it wasn't the carpet. ;)

Add me to the growing list of candy diet seekers. Sounds excellent to me!

So what does 'fitting white trashy' mean exactly? I imagine it is similar to the midsection spillover problem that I have. I am really struggling with getting fit too. I have the exercise thing pretty good, but I still LOVE to eat! If only eating burned as many calories as exercising, then I'd be waaaaaaaaaay skinnier!

Glad you're feeling better about the ex drama.

Hey- I love your new cooking blog. It's so great to get recipes that someone has actually tried. Stuff I get off the internet is usually so hit and miss.

PJ said...

Glad you are feeling better, just keep breathing!

I'll have to check out that Chicken

No Cool Story said...

First of all you don't suck. You are a wolf girl.

Second, the "pants are fitting white-trashy" phrase is a no-no. What does that even mean? I say NO to that. You are beautiful and cute (and I have seen you with my very own eyeballs).

Third, cheating does messes you up. No beign able to trust people is a big issue and it does take a long time to recover. I was thinking the other day that it has been 16 years and I can finally say that it doesn't hurt anymore.
BUT, I don't have to deal with the %#*@&! at all, so it has been easier for me.
Sei is da man! YAY Sei.

I love it when Taj has special guests give the prayer :)
And your award shoul be a triple E, 'cause you're super Excellente.

shay said...

I followed No Cool over here and I'm so glad!

Sorry, I don't have the candy diet for you but if you find one....
I've been running but not enough to keep the weight from creeping back.

Nancy Face said...

You're so sweet to give Lauren a shout out for her birthday! :)

Taj's big toe...hahaha! :D

I would love a candy diet...sigh.

Congrats on the most excellent award! :D

Gretch said...

A chocolate cupcake diet sounds good!!
I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you that I really enjoy reading your 76tonow blog as well as this one!! I love to hear stories about peps when they were younger!
I also have a few recipes to contribute, but give me a few days to get them together for ya!!

Nancy Face said...

Another award is just waiting for you on my blog! :)

Klin said...

I say Amen to your twin's comment. So cute about Livie and the accident. It cracks me up that she is telling you "it's ok." I wonder where she heard that from from?

The candy diet. Hmmmm. I'm currently trying out the cinnamon lips diet. It's fat free.

Thank your for the award. I'm speechless. It's so cool that you think I'm excellent;)

Lauren said...

Aww, thank you for sending people to my blog for my birthday. You are such a great friend!

HAHA the big toe said the prayer. That is TALENT.
