Sinus Crazy-ness

So besides the normal, "I work too much" feeling.. And thanks to ALL of the farmers out tilling and making a ton of Dust in their fields... I have been fighting a nasty Sinus cold the last few days and Im pretty sure and Hoping that Today will be the last of it. Below is a preview of What I am surrounded by.. Just looking at this picture makes me want my Nasal spray! LOL!


The worst part is While battling this nasty sinus junk, I had to be at work a few hours earlier than what was planned..AND I was to meet with our new DM.. I looked and felt Horrible, I can't believe I worked 9+ hours and survived! HAHA

Theraflu has been my best friend the last 2 days.. But now, I just feel weak.. I need to get out on my Bike, Throw on my sweet new Reeboks and hit the Frisbee Golf course with Adam, Fold down my treadmill and enjoy a movie while I run/power walk my booty off!

Yesterday I had a full day off, However...It was Raining , But I could NOT sit in bed all day and just feel miserable, So I got up and started cleaning and bleaching EVERYTHING. Washed ALL of our clothes, Folded and Organized while Adam Vacuumed as well as gave all 4 of our precious Pups a Bath. I was determined to get all the dust up and all the dirt and just help myself feel Better!

So, I have been thinking about starting a food journal. It's hard to keep a healthy eating habit while Im on the go so much, and well.. Lets just say being around all of the sweets and the drinks at work don't help, along with the fact that EVERYONE I know up here drinks SO much Pepsi and Coke and DrPepper! It's like their water! Lol  But, Those are simply just excuses, and I know that I can over come all of those temptations, and well.. I plan on setting a Free day, However I will NOT let myself go crazy on my free day.




So what are some things that you do to help you stay focused on your diet and exercise plans?

And would y'all like to see my Daily or weekly Food journals? Im thinking that may help me stay focused as well!

All suggestions are welcome. However, Im off to work

Later Y'all!

Today's Randoms.

I want to start todays post out with a
BIG Happy birthday to my Dad!
He is.. 35...Again! :P





I wont Lie, IM completely Scatter brained right now. I have the next two days off, THANK GOODNESS!
Only bad thing is, It's supposed to rain. LAME! which means no bike time. I was thinking about doing some exploring in Grand Island, Maybe some Shopping..or something.

How many of you are "regulars" at a favorite Bar, Restaurant or hang out spot??
I want to talk about the people who are. And I want to point out to you that When someone new joins the team of this favorite spot of yours, How do you treat them? Do you Great them with a smile and introduce yourself..or are you completely rude and start telling them that they are slow and waiting your time. (when you're spending the next hour or so in the Lobby.)
I honestly have a few"regulars" at my new store who are RUDE to me..
I dont know their drinks by heart yet, because I have JUST met them..One person actually turned to her friend and started talking trash about me..RIGHT in front of me.
Ok Lady.

Now, I know I am no better right now, Because I am speaking of her..But it really upset me and well, I just needed to let that out!

On another note.
Have you ever seen Youtube.com sensation Jenna Marbles?
I pretty much adore her, and I think it's really because..Shes a lot like me.. Kinda weird..yet interesting haha.
At first when I heard about her, I was like.. meh.. And then I started watching her videos. She says what MOST people are thinking, C'mon..I know you think about this stuff too!
ANYWHO! You should watch..and Laugh..and enjoy..
my FAVORITE video of hers is this one seen below..
I can say, I have done this face.. and IT WORKS! HAHAHA

I have seriously thought about starting my own YouTube channel.
I suppose I would talk about random things as well, throughout the day.. Or maybe just making a Vlog.
But then, I don't know if it's something that I would be able to keep up with.  You see, I am very much A.D.D ( who isn't these days?) Thanks to all the sugar and the unhealthy diets these Children are getting today..right? Anyways..
I typically Type and write just like I speak, well...So I have been told. Im jumpy, Im random and well.. ADD! Lol.
So I figure, If I can keep up with this Blog, Maybe I will throw in some Vlog's every now and then?? EH??

What do you think?

Whelp. Im going to head off to bed so I can enjoy my next two days off!

Leave me some Love!
GoodNight Y'all!

New Life, Wedding Planning, House hunting and a New Job.

well, this past week was interesting. Another one of those "I don't know when Ill be homes" and a few tears later, I survived. We can Only hope that this week and Im keeping my fingers crossed that Adam will be home THIS WEEK.
I cannot even stress to everyone how emotionally exhausted I am.I'm sorry to seem so sappy in this post..

My Job is currently between TWO stores .Each of these Stores, I just happen to be right in the middle of. Im pulling weight for a store in York,Ne and a Store in Grand Island, Ne.
How in the world am I keeping my schedule straight, I have NO clue..Im just doing it.
The beautiful thing about my Store in Grand Island, Is that I am right next door to a Texas Road House, which will be opening up April 9th. The Manager brought myself and my girls over a TON of food! man oh man was it delicious!Not to mention, it's SO nice to see that Texas flag flying high!

After doing some research, looking at Houses to Rent..maybe Buy and settle into. I have noticed not Only the major Price difference from Here and Texas, but that fact that there is NO WHERE to rent. The apartments that ARE in the area, you have to be making well.. lets just saying working at McDonald's 3 times a week, you could afford to pay rent.. Isn't that a good thing? NO. I alone make TOO much to live in an apartment here (weird huh?), and rental houses..yeah, there is NO such thing! So Adam and I have started discussing the idea of Getting a VA loan (since he's a veteran) and taking advantage of the Low Interest rates for first time home buyers and finding a place WE can call home.
I fell in LOVE with this house..

http://www.cthomasrealty.com/1806.html

The outside needs some touch ups (which is easy) and the Basement isn't finished (which Adam LOVES that for a Home Improvement task)
The Inside is AMAZING! and Don't even get me started on the Original wood work! The only thing about Nebraskan homes, Most of them only have ONE bathroom! ONE!?!? But, There is room to add another bathroom to this house!

So, Besides me working at TWO different stores and picking them BOTH back up.. I'm waiting for my Darling Fiance to get up here, and not to mention.. we have a Wedding to plan!
AHH!

My wedding planning crazy-ness and our House Hunting will be new posts.

GoodNight Y'all!
