I have about ten to twelve pounds to lose. Eek! Here are some pics from last year

Night owl

It's 2am and I am still up, making confetti cake protein pancakes. I needed something to do to pass the time, as I'm just cooking one at a time. Ah the monotony. I'm up later than normal... Had caffeine too late in the evening. Andy has gr me hooked on watching the tv show Sons of Anarchy. I hadn't seen any of the previous seasons so we borrowed all the discs and tonight we finished them! I had basically refused to watch the series at first, thinking it wasn't a genre I would be interested in. I love it though!

I am trying to pop on here more often, catch up with you guys a little bit, and update you on things with me. I'm slowly but surely finishing up my Masters degree in Educational Psychology with an emphasis in Human Development. I took a semester off and and had taken other classes that don't apply to my current degree otherwise I probably would've already finished. I started off pursuing a double major ad realize that was over zealous of me. Nonetheless, I should complete the degree in May and I've been in talks with a local community college to teach Psych courses once I graduate.

On that note, I'm currently not working in the field of social work/case management. I left a job with a community mental health agent in June to take a job as a personal trainer. Turns out the PT job was a joke..I was mislead about the number of clients I would be getting and therefore making no money. It was a 40min drive each way I was gone from home 11hrs a day five days a week because of the scheduling. When i realized that wasn't going to help pay the bills, I left. No notice or anything. Took up another waitressing job. So I'm serving at two places right now..the one I have been at since 2007 (and where I met Andy) and another restaurant about a half hour away. It's got its slow times but other days I'm making more than I would take home if I were to break it down to a daily salary at my social services job. I'm keeping my eyes out for social services jobs but for now I'm enjoying a flexible schedule and not having to bringy work home with me and do paperwork every night.

Well, that's my update for now. Here is a pic of what i used to make the pancakes. Not "clean" by any means but a nice breakfast or post workout treat. I watered it down a little and it made 14 five inch pancakes. And they're yummy!!!

Hey guys! I will answer some your questions later, but when you tell you about a dream I had last night. I still dream about my ex-husband and his family a lot, which makes sense, because they were a part of my life for 10 years. However last night was different. I met his dad in my dream, you're got along with pretty well, that was never super close to. And my dream he told me that I deserve better than my current husband and that I could've married someone different. He made no reference to the fact that he wished me and my ex were still together, just that basically I traded down, so to speak. This comment in my dreams really struck me. And I remember saying well I'm happy now, and I no longer have to take medication for the fashion. Which is a partial truth, but not a complete truth. Because I still struggle with depression off and on. I found the whole dream just to be kind of weird and out of place. Because in the context, I was hanging out with a friend, and when I went outside her house, my ex father-in-law was there. On a side note, I have seen my ex-in-laws on various occasions around the community. They have always been nice to me, and don't seem to have any resentment or hard feelings. However, I have not seen my ex-husband since our court date for the divorce. Oh, and earlier in that same dream, Vince Vaughn try to hook up with me. LOL dreams are weird aren't they?

female issues update

You guys may remember my post from a month or so ago about needing treatment for cervial dysplasia. I had to reschedule my initial appointment because i was on my period, but I went to the doctor last Wednesday and had the treatment. Turns out I had three abnormal spots and some were in the 'moderate to severe' category. They treated me with cryosurgery, which is freezing of the cervix. It hurrrrrrrt! I was in pain for a couple hours afterwards. I havent had any pain since, just the anticipated discharge. Yeehaw. This is TMI but as the old cells shed, i am discharging a clear/yellowish liquid, and I was told to expect it to last about three weeks. WHAT!? lol. Whats annoying is the I can feel it draining at times! Im wearing pads, but its still annoying, coupled with the fact I cant have sex. Andys being patient, so I will have to reward him with some stuff I got from pure romance when I can shag again. hehe. anyways, the procedure I had is 85% effective about getting rid of bad cells, and I go for another pap this summer. get your annual pap ladies!!
How many of you guys have seen PS I Love You? I ask because as Andy's mom has been going through Ray's stuff, she has been finding little love notes that he left her. It was chilling when Andy told me this...Ray had pretty much been bedridden for the past two or three weeks, so he had been hiding these letters before he got real bad off. I guss the notes have been saying how much he loved her, and how everything will be okay. They were only married about six years, so its really touching. It just melted my heart when. Andy told me that. Andy is doing okay now, still just sort of in shock, as is his mother. They arent having a funeral or even a viewing or anything like that, which I thought was kinda weird. He wasnt from arounf here originally, so only a few people wouldve came anyways. Instead, he is being cremated for a burial at sea in March. Ray was a seasoned Navy veteran and his ashed are going to be released off an aircraft carrier. I thought that was pretty cool. Andys aunt and uncle are hosting a family get together in Rays honor later this month.

seriously, he left behind notes for her?!? how sweet is that???
Here I am on a typical Sunday morning working at the diner. We have been open almost two hours and we only have three customers, some of our regulars, in right now. Sunday mornings are so slooooow. I brought in a book to read called Still Missing, but I thought I would make a little update first.

I dont know why I have vacated LJ. Gone are the days it seems when I would post daily or even twice a day. I still go online about everyday so its not like i dont have time...I just dont do it. I miss you guys and need to get back in a routine again.

So 2011 is here and Im hoping it will be a good year for me. Six months from now I will be married and in Hawaii!! Thats definitely something to look forward to, especially during the winter doldrums. Andy and I are still debating, or I guess its mainly myself who is debating, whether or not to have the vasectomy reversed. Some days i think i wanna do it and have a child and other days im like heeeelll no. i will post more later.....getting busier!
