I am not a morning person, but turning on the TV at 4:57 for H2 and listening to Noggin for an hour and a half and rolling out of bed at 6:30 to put him in a steamy shower, wake Mr. Big Shot to get ready for school & Mr. Husband, who looked rather cute sleeping in Hunter's bed, was not all that bad. We got through the morning without me having to ask anyone to do something twice, we got off to school on time (maybe even a little early), I even didn't feel like a total zombie on the drive to school. I'm not saying I want to get up before 5 on a regular basis, but maybe I need to re-adjust my time clock just a little bit, to make the morning run just a little bit smoother.

I have never heard my husband complain so much about the announcing of a sports game. One more thing, GO COWBOYS!

So when I came home today, I opened up a new jar of hot sauce I bought at Central Market yesterday to see how wonderful it was. Well, it knocked my on my a**. I have lost all the mascara on my eyes, I used an entire box of Kleenex blowing my nose (well, at least I'm not stopped up anymore). I am a little tweaky in the stomach due to the peppers. I also feel like there is heat coming of my eyeballs. THIS STUFF WAS HOT!!!!
I'm embarrassed to actually admit this, because my parents will read this and laugh at me and I will never live it down. Dad, I dare you go by some Two Hot Mama's Salsa Co. Salsa Roja in HOT.

So now what am I doing? I'm sitting on my exercise at the computer because somewhere I read that it suppose to work your abs. Ya right! Just call me NERD ATTACK! I'm destined to be a voluptuous size 14 for the rest of my life (yes, voluptuous, I don't use the word fat.) How many times do I have to say that Marilyn Monroe was a size 14. I should be considered hot not overweight.
FYI, the definition of voluptuous:
1 a: full of delight or pleasure to the senses : conducive to or arising from sensuous or sensual gratification b: suggesting sensual pleasure by fullness and beauty of form
2: given to or spent in enjoyment of luxury, pleasure, or sensual gratifications
Ooh, that sounds dirty! Works for me!

He became a gladiator, hoping to dominate the colosseum in order to one day get the chance of killing Commodus. Maximus is valiant, courageous, and dedicated. He wants nothing more than the chance to avenge his family, but his temper often gets the better of him.

I have the most wonderful husband; I usually complain about him, but he will come home after a busy day of work and make dinner, because I am just too tired to do it. He will take the kids anytime I want to go anywhere or do anything. He's a pain in the ass at times, but I love him. He also gave me two very annoying, but extremely charming children who drive me crazy, but seem to make everyone else believe they are total angels. I love them too.
I'm lucky to have a good sister, a great set of parents, two awesome sister-in-laws. I am thankful for Uncle Denny, because without him Mason wouldn't be graduating in a few weeks.
I have a good job and good co-workers, two really good cats (we won't talk about the third, I am not thankful for him). I am thankful for dark chocolate, Dirty Sexy Money on Wednesday nights, the Food Network, satellite radio, really soft cotton, my 600 thread count sheets and my girlfriends - every one of them, even the ones I've never met and only communicate thru our blogs - You Rock Girls!

OH, and Hunter's Thanksgiving Play was today, so that was an interesting deal. Both kids are on antibiotics, so I didn't infect anyone. I promise. I am feeling lost and a little discombobulated. I want to make poor little E feel better and I just can't do it. He's been so good and not complained, he just lays there looking pitiful. It just breaks a mother's heart.

You will be graced with a huge dose of beautiful, magnetic energy today. In a crowd, you will be able to draw people around you with your supportive ways. People will feel especially safe and confident around you, and will be ready to divulge some critical information that others would give their eye teeth for. This is not a day to use your charms to get something out of someone. Rather, it is a day to just be yourself, and let people open up when they want and how they want.
I'm waiting for the big "scoop", it hasn't come in yet.

I have done pretty much nothing all day. I had a few closings, but that didn't take long. I've had to cover the phones a few time this morning. Moved a few files around on the server. (I'm suppose to do this, I wasn't playing a joke on anyone) Now I am patiently waiting for 5:00 to roll around so I can get out of Dodge. OH! I just looked down, its 10 minutes till - I gotta clean off my desk.
He holds a party saying it is for charity, then doesn't give but a teeny-tiny amount of the money to charity and keeps the rest for himself. Not only does he think he's fabulous, women I've always considered smart, savvy & on top of things fall for it hook-line & sinker. What is wrong with the world?
I've been very good about keeping a food diary and will maintain it for the month (without conveniently forgetting to write down something) and then I'm off to the a new doctor to see if we can't determine what is really going on.
Attitude is everything so I'm trying to stay positive.

Now regarding the weight issues, I am currently working out 3-4 times a week at Curves (been doing so since May). I am now participating in the Curves Smart which tracks your progress on each machine and adjusts the machines accordingly. It takes in your weight, body measurements & range of motion and sets up the machines just for you. At the end of each workout you see the results - like which muscles groups you worked the most, where you need to improve and total calorie burn. My calorie burn ranges from 327 to 462 in 30 minutes over the past three weeks. I have also been working on portion control and limiting processed foods, I also haven't had a soda of any kind for over 2 1/2 months. I have not lost a pound!
I've had every blood test known to man, I feel like my doctor and my husband think I'm a hypochondriac and I think my doctor thinks I'm depressed because he keeps shoving anti-depressants at me. I may have issues, but I tend to be in a manic state, not depressed and I don't respond well to any medication and I do mean any medication. I can't take anything for allergies, pain meds make me sick - nothing. My doctor has also said it could be Fibromyalgia - great a damn disease you can't take anything for! But could be and is are two different things.
My mother (and I) think it might be thyroid, but all test come back normal the only thing I haven't had is a MRI or CAT scan of my thyroid, but that tends to be a little expensive. I could be in menopause (I'm not even 40, but I am having hot flashes). Do I find a different doctor, do I go get acupuncture, go on a liquid diet, become a vegan?
I'm so sick of feeling like crap and not being able to lose weight. I frustrated and would appreciate any advice and/or words of encouragement.

So now I'm obsessing about that, embarrassed - when I do this I start talking to myself trying to fix the problem. The Karma Gods replied by giving me my period. Great!

Somewhere I have to get it in my head that to lose weight, I actually have to stop doing those bad things, no sugar, no coke, no wine, no white bread - I refuse to totally give up carbs - except I did sneak in a few flour tortillas yesterday.
Anyway, somehow I came to my senses and decided to order some books online. I figured if I workout I deserve a little lie down with a good book. Just please don't make me feel guilty that they are not what sophisticated people would call "literature" they are popular fiction & chick lit. A girl gotta have her vices right!
They did my hair flat as a pancake today - usually I have that Rosanne Rosanna Danna look (for those of you old enough to remember), but today I've got a more Jennifer Aniston flat look. Well, I can promise you it won't look that way tomorrow.
I also need to try to get a workout in. Where does my day go? If you find it will you please return it to me.

I'm excited about the possibility of really getting out there and helping people get that home they always wanted. Believe me when I say this - DO NOT RENT, BUY!! Why throw your money down the drain (or into a landlords pocket) when you can buy a house or condo and put equity into your home not someone else's. I know its hard, initial investment that kind of thing, don't wait until you can buy your dream home. You'd never get there because your dream home would keep changing with all the new trends. But if my husband and I would have waited to purchase a home, because of the increase in property values, we couldn't afford the home we own now. It has doubled in value in 10 years. Talk about a return on our investment!
Don't know how to start, talk to a Realtor, talk to an Investment Counselor or a Mortgage Broker and see what you qualify for and start working towards homeownership - its never too early.

We gambled, but truly we shopped 'till we dropped - or to be honest, we shopped till the blisters on our feet could no longer be ignored. While shopping we saw this display window and I couldn't help but think that my husband would appreciate it. Its a shop called Agent Provocateur it was an interesting shop to say the least.

I will miss my boys, maybe my husband and most definitely my cats. Honey, take care of my babies for me & maybe I'll bring you a little something-something!!!

And all commission stuff is kind of scary. Its not like I'm raking in the dough working 13 hours a week, its just that 13 hours a week is going to look like a fortune next to no paycheck unless you sell something. Does anyone need to sell a house? Or buy? I'm available.
