psyche29: A brown eye with rainbow eyeliner all around it (not being entertained)
Lately in our household, we've been considering - very seriously - the idea of joining the YMCA. And too, actually going there a few times a week to walk, use the weights, swim, whatever.

This is insane.

I hate exercise with the burning passion of a billion effulgent suns. Every single fiber of my being is screaming bloody murder at the top of its (huh, that feels like the wrong identifier) lungs. Motherfucker, I just want to lie down and READ. I have absolutely no interest whatsoever in getting up and moving.

But somehow, this errant common sense and completely ridiculous and misplaced desire to "get in better shape" (you know, besides round) is winning out, and I am conflicted HATE it. And even being absolutely livid about it isn't stopping me from probably doing it.

I can only assume this means that I have officially gained "adult" status and really am as old as Boychild believes I am. Otherwise, there is something very wrong with me AND I WANT IT TO STOP NOW, PLSKTHX.

I never, ever thought I'd say this, but getting older sucks.

Or maybe it's not the getting older part, but the realizing it that sucks. I am not amused.

Falling apart.

I am fucking falling apart.

I've spent nearly this entire evening alternating between crying and gagging up acid spit. I believe, friends, that I've developed my first ever case of heartburn.

And I cannot handle it. Hubby is out being heroic right now and buying Tums and some other OTC med so that I have it handy; I'm currently pain-free, but as this has been happening daily for nearly a week, I'm not expecting this is over.

All right, we'll try this again. Note to self: Copy entire post before hitting the "post" button, just in case the entries page eats the damn thing again.

FLIST! It's been a while! I've been coming and reading entries, and keep telling myself I'm going to post "as soon as I have some time," but that never seems to happen. *rolls eyes at self*

Cut for length. )

I am sure there a million and one more things I could put here, but am drawing a blank. I find myself doing that more and more often...which is kind of sad, considering that two weeks from today, I will only be 34.

If you want an update on anything I haven't rambled about in this post already, please don't hesitate to ask! I want to get back into the habit of posting again, so hopefully it won't be so long a wait. ;)

EDIT: Dreamwidth People: Does anybody know why, when I move the mouse out of the entry box on the create entries beta page, the text in the box leaps upward? I don't mean the words switch places or anything, but the whole text body itself scrolls up each time I move the mouse out of the box, and never just stays where I left the damn cursor. I can even stop typing, move the mouse out, then back in and back out a couple times without typing at all, and it will keep scrolling up a bit with each movement in and out. I'll check the bug list thingy later, of course, but thought I'd pose the question here, just in case anyone has a quick, easy answer. ....I wonder if it does this from home. I'll have to check; at work I'm forced to use IE8, but use firefox at home.

1. WOW, I've missed rather a lot. Work keeps me swamped, unfortunately. I miss you all.

2. On the work front - I am still unbelievably bogged down with stuff to do, but the last few days have made it seem like there might be a light at the end of the tunnel. You know that time early in the morning when no one is awake and you're unsure whether the world is still turning because all you can see, all you can hear is the nothingness of silence and sleep? And then just there, far off in the distance, you realize there's this faint glow spreading along the horizon, the one that isn't really rays of light and can't even accurately be described as light. But there's that faintest ghost of a shimmer, and you know the sun will be absolutely glorious this morning - that's the kind of feeling I've had the last couple days. And I'm a little lighter for it.

3. My youngest sister, Amanda, has decided she'd rather live with us than with her best friend's parents. So on Saturday, we took her to the apartment place to apply, since she's over 18. And they were having an open house, so she (we, actually) didn't have to pay an application fee, which was extremely nice. And if she's approved - which shouldn't be a problem - she'll be entered into a drawing to win a $500 visa gift card and another to win an iPod.

4. We've decided mostly that we're going to let her and Mikey have the bigger bedroom, which isn't too big a sacrifice because both the rooms just seem huge to us. But this way, they'll be able to have two twin beds instead of bunk beds, which is good because Mikey HATES climbing up into that thing, and Amanda sure won't climb up every night. And I can't really blame either of them for it - I was never a top-bunk kind of girl.

5. We'll be moving bits and pieces here and there beginning next Wednesday, when we get the keys, but the big exodus will be mostly over Easter weekend. I have that Friday off and more people seem to be available for then. Anyone nearby who is willing to help is more than welcome.

6. Apparently, I am turning 31 on Sunday. Surely that can't be right...where does the time go?

7. I have made no progress on my list of books, except to add a few to it. *rolls eyes* I can't wait for all my various days off, I am going to lock myself away for a while and just read. Voraciously.

8. I've been wanting to write lately, too, but there's that time commodity problem, like with the reading list. I just try to sneak in whatever I can, but I'm suffering withdrawal symptoms.

9. Speaking of writing...ANGEL. Should I have gotten anything from you yet besides the outline you originally sent? I haven't seen anything, and I'm not sure if you just haven't sent it or if I didn't get it. Let me know. :)

10. Day off tomorrow today. *sighs and grins, relaxing into pillows*

11. Song meme swiped from [ profile] coonassblondie. List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your Journal along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they're listening to. You know me, I rarely tag. Do it if you wanna. XD.

My seven, in no particular order:
1. Little Wonders - Rob Thomas
2. In Time - Robbie Robb
3. Love Like This - Natasha Bedingfield ft. Sean Kingston
4. Gotta Be Somebody - Nickelback
5. The Rainbow Connection - Dixie Chicks
6. Hot N Cold - Katy Perry
7. I'm Yours - Jason Mraz

You know, I'm getting to that point where the whole "gain-an-hour/lose-an-hour" thing is getting very old and very annoying. It messes me up and makes me tired. Just give me my damn hour and leave it alone for the rest of eternity, OK?

More on life, the universe and everything... )

Watched Transformers again last night before bed. I don't know why, but I am completely in love with that movie. XD

I can't stop playing with it, so y'all get some more pictures. XD

You know you wanna see 'em. )

I had another of Amanda somewhere, but I think I forgot to upload it...oh, well. :)

Nothing too new lately. The slow girl at work may not be up here much longer...she's getting slower and worse at her job, is messing up a ton of stuff, and has been caught sleeping in front of her computer a couple times. I feel bad for her because I know there are mental issues (not in the social areas or anything, just serious confidence and even common sense areas), but that doesn't make it OK for everyone else to have to pick up the slack, or for me and our boss to constantly be teaching her the same things over and over and over again, you know?

Mikey goes back to school on Monday - Matt's looking very forward to that. *LOL*

Can you believe it's 2008?! I don't know where the time goes. I'll be 30 this year. 30!! Shouldn't I feel like an adult by now? *rolls eyes*

Anyway, I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and I wish the best to each of you for the new year! *HUGS*
