So . . .

. . . it's August. I haven't posted yet because it's been a pretty boring month so far. I even opened a "new post" page yesterday and stared blankly at the screen for about three minutes thinking of something to write. Apparently my creative juices were not working yet. I can't guarantee anything now either, but I can't sleep (again) so I'm trying to do something productive and don't want to read The Return of the King which I started last week . . . there are a few noteworthy things though . . .

I've been riding my bike almost daily, it makes me feel happy--and worn out!

I rode my bike up to the Benson building on campus on Monday--which is up a decent sized hill. I'd like to be able to get all the way there without all the sweating and huffing and puffing though . . .

I decided it was about time I make some money while I'm on my "summer break" and donated plasma on Tuesday. I'm going to do it again today if my iron levels are up to par.

I'm using the money to buy Rob birthday gifts. :)

I did 4 sets of 5 reps at 95 pounds tonight on the bench press and squats, and 95 pound deadlifts. (and I can't sleep? WTF?)

Rob loves his job. I love that he loves his job. I however don't like being home alone all day. I wish I had more friends in Rexburg to play with.

I've begun showering at night. It's weird, but my hair looks great in the morning!

I bought new athletic shoes last weekend--my old ones were over 4 years old and have been retired.

Please leave comments. They make me happy--and it's nice to know that multiple people are actually reading this.

I think I might be able to sleep now, so I'm off.

Kristin, keep going on the exercise! Check on your sleep habits. Getting up at 7 or 7:30am and going to bed at 10 or 10:30pm really makes a difference (no naps unless short ones).

1:47am huh, that's nutty. Sorry I have not been on more often Kristin, my entire blogging life has been lacking lately. Way to go on the biking to campus, that is super amazing! Hey, I'm going to PA next week to help Ali and the fam get settled in! I'm so excited to see where they are going to be living. Wish me luck though, there might also be buckets of tears:(

You are so funny! I love random posts. They turn out to be my favorite!

Take advantage of your lonesome days without children. Actually it sounds like you have been. I would almost give anything for just one day alone with no one around. Especially right now as I'm trying to get through breaking dawn. Have you read that yet. That would make for something to do while Rob is at work and when you can't sleep.

LeMira said...

Yes, I agree, read the book. I'm finished with mine now, so you can come get it if you want. :)

Kristin said...

I'm the next in queue to check it out from the school library. :)

Sounds like you need a hobby! Maybe you should write a book.

As for the sleep, maybe you should look at your bedtime routine. Having a bath, taking yucky medicine, and then having How Do Dinosaurs Go To Bed read to you ought to do the trick. It works for Kimberly! Except when it doesn't.

is that brother of mine still driving a forklift?
and I think Lisa's book idea is fabulous. If you wrote a book, I'd buy a million copies.
