My Weekend!


I hope everyone had a great Weekend as well as a safe Memorial Day! Did you do anything special? I thought I’d give a recap of mine. I’ve been trying to get my husband to spend more quality time with me and our little Girl,Leah so he promised to take Leah and myself to a Local School so she could play on the playground. She loves being outside and everything that entails. She begs us to swing her and sometimes as adults we have so much more on our plates and its good to take time for your children. leah see sawing

I had planned on it being just the 3 of of us and wouldn’t you know it my husband’s brother,David & his daughter,Beth shows up! They have really great timing and do this often and I know how they are about not leaving and the sun was already about to go down and we had promised to take Leah and I knew that if I didn’t invite them it would be too late and we’d have to cancel and I didn’t want to do that. So,I invited them and they went to get us all a drink since it was so hot. We walked to the playground and back and played around with Leah it was a great workout for all of us!

andreaprom Friday,My Step-Daughter Andrea came in from East Tennessee she’s not been around since Thanksgiving 2008! We’ve had our differences but,I feel she should at least see her father every now and then. I’m sure coming from divorced parents has to be hard but,it seems like sometimes she does everything she can to make it harder for me being the step mom. She claims she loves her dad and her little sister but,how someone care about something they don’t even want to see? My husband was in a near fatal car accident last year and she was in town the day he got out of the hospital and she never came to see him? Anyways,she got in around 10am but,never came over till almost time for her dad to get off work and her mother wasn’t even going to stop to let her she her dad. I don’t think its right that he pays child support and she never comes around. I just don’t agree with it at all. I know that as a teenager she has better things to do and one of these days she will she spent more time with her daddy. Sometimes we take people for granted thinking they will always be around. Anyways here is a picture of her prom.  she soon Left and we went out to dinner at Sonic and we went to Wal-Mart where I got this Pink iPod Dock that is a dual alarm as well as it plays and charges my iPod. It worked at first but now its not playing my iPod. If I get my unemployment Check I’m taking it back tomorrow and I’m going to use the money to get me the EAS Active for the Wii. I should have the money for a Wii-Fit and the EAS Active. I’m wanting to do them everyday and run about 3 days a week and I think that would be a great workout. Anyways here is a picture of the iPod Dock I got that doesn’t work. Its supper cute but cute doesn’t always do the job! I guess I will just have to keep looking around and get another dock I’m hoping to find something that plays my iPod,Charges it and is an alarm too. I will just have to keep looking around but,if anyone has any recommendations please let me know.


We didn’t do much for the rest of the night but,we went to bed and The next morning we went and got breakfast at Hardees’ and we came home and watched a few Netflicks movies then we later went to a little Festivial in my hometown and we saw some of my Favorite cars the Ford Model A & B Cars. Iremember seeing a model A Type car in Titanic the movie and I know the Titanic sank several years before in April 1912 so how is that possible? I think I will research what year that car in the movie was. 

From Left to Right: 1931 Ford Model A,1950ish Chevy,1932 Ford Model B.


Here is a Video of Kate & Leo in the movie Titanic

Here are a few more videos of previews of movies we watch Via Netflicks this weekend.






Ohhh I forgot to mention! I went to see my Parents Saturday evening. Saturday was my dad’s 77th birthday. I personally think he looks great for a 77 year old. He’s been walking 1 mile Everday! Isn’t that awesome. I’m so proud of him. I don’t know many 20 years old that does that much walking. He was asking if there was some sort of gadet you can get to track your walk and of course I had to tell him about Nike+ I know my dad well enough that if he gets into something he hears about something such as the Nike + he just has to have it. I wish I could afford to get him one. I’d do it in a heartbeat    I think its awesome that you can have a little gadget to listen to your music and keep up with your walks and runs and even have little competitions with other other users of the Nike + Here are a few pictures from visiting my parents. My sister is in a few of these.

We had a small BBQ here with just us we didn’t invite anyone we decided to just hang out with just us! I think I officially got my husband hooked on Facebook especially the Farm Town App he loves playing that game so if you are looking to add him let me know he’d love to have new Farm Town Friends.




Here is the info on Today’s Run. It certainly isn’t my best and I’ve done better that’s for sure. My leg muscles started to hurt. I want to try working on my time and speed. I got a new nike + sensor pouch it’s pink of Course. So I used it in my workout today and I love it!! Here are the details of today’s run.

Just finished my 30 minute walk/Run. I burned 133 calories. I walked a
total of 1.274 miles I walked/ran a mile at a pace 23:00 min/mile. I
remember I could run a 10 minute mile in high school. Omg! I must
start working on shaving my time down.

HYC Check In

I've lost 1.2 lbs this week. Yah me! been super busy with studying for my placement test that I've got to take tomorrow at 10 am. Trying to decide what school I'm planning on attending its been so nerve racking. I have been trying to get back into my walking routine and Its already made me feel better. I don't know about any of you but,Its so freeing when I can just go out by myself and go for a long walk. I won a 3 month ( i believe its 3 months but I could be wrong) membership to go to Weight Watcher Meetings and I'm thinking of going to my local Ymca where they have the closest meeting in my area. Was going to do it online but,I really could use moral support of group meetings. I can't wait till get the info through the mail so I can get started. I'm sorry to end this so short but on a good note I lost weight this week. My 2 yea old is throwing a tantrum and I need to go deal with her!

Oh yeah I after having my treadmill for almost 4 months I finally realized that it has a place where I can change the display and it shows how many miles I walked/Ran which is a great way to track my info. I like to keep track of how many miles I walk. I use to be able to run a mile in about 10 minutes when I was in high school. I'd be lucky if I could run it in 20. Maybe that's a goal I can work towards.

Grey's Anatomy Finale

Grey's Anatomy Finale was AWESOME! I really hope that TR Knight & Katherine Heigl don't leave the show. They are two of my favorites on the show. But,I've read on blogs that TR isn't happy with his role anymore ever since the Isiiah Washington incident. I think this was one of TR's greatest performances in the show. I truly think that the writers strike really put a damper on alot of the various characters storylines so much they had to squeeze alot of stuff in and I really think in the end they will regret leaving. But,I was talking to my husband after the show and I really think there won't be much more of Grey's. Because if you look at alot of the really sucessful shows they are really lucky to be around past 6-7 seasons. I just think alot of these actors are really different some may even get the big head or greedy and they rather find more important things to do. I love Grey's don't get me wrong and I hope it sticks around but,Its loosing its actors like left and right and its actors that I miss. I like the original actors of Grey's I like some of the new ones too but,I guess I just hate change

putting gas in the jeep and about to go out to dinner
just took a shower. Studying for my placement and Net Test while Leah is playing

HYC check-In

I've been pretty busy for the last week with trying to return back to school in fall. Lots of studying going on and cramming for a Placement Test & My Net Test that I have to pass by June 30th in order to go into the major of my choice which will be in the Medical Feild. ah ya ya!!! Not studied for a test in close to 11 years but that isn't what I will talk about today I will save that for another day.

I lost 1lb this week which I'm proud of cause for me it takes alot for me to even loose 1 lb. I guess having something to do such as all this studying Its help me not to go to food when I'm bored. I'm wanting to start trying to walk this week. I am planning on finally getting me one of those sensor bands since I don't have the Nike+ shoes so I can workout to my Nike+ and it be more accurate. They should really look into making treadmill that is Nike+ where you don't even need all the iPod Equipment for it to work. Hey I'd defiantely buy that!! lol
My eating has been okay! There is room for improvement but,I'm getting there. As for workouts nadda. My hip is still hurting some days are worse than others. Almost like its been popped out of place. Perhaps when I had that fall back in January? I'm going to try and walk at least 3 days a week for 30 minutes and see if walking will help relieve the pain. Maybe I just need to get some weight off my hips.
My neice,Beth always Compliments me if it looks like I've lost weight. She's Pregnant and hates it that I'm loosing and she is gaining. It feels good that other people notice. What a confidence booster.

Cramming For Tests!!

As most of you know I'm planning on Returning back to school this coming fall. Its been 11 years this month since I've even been in School. I graduated and got my High School Diploma in May 1998. Boy that seems like ages ago! I've worked several dead end jobs in the last few years and this past year I worked in Home care and I loved it! Granted I did get a few patients I didn't care for but,there was a few that became like Grandparents I never had. Some became like Family I never had. Some issues arrived and I got laid off. I found out through a goverment funded program I could go back to school.
So,now I'm have to take a placement test. I took one last week and passed the reading and I must of scored the highest score you can get. The Math not so well. I've always had problems out of math even in early grade school. But,they gave me the materials to study on and I have to take the test again on May 20th. So I have a little over a week to study for it. Its mostly Algebra Stuff. I needed to score a 10 and I scored a 9. Not too bad I don't think for being out of school for 11 years and not even studied not even before the test. So hopefully with a little preparation I can score a little better. I can do this! I got it!! I have to be positive that I can do this. I just need to do a tad little bit better.
I also have to call and Schedule The Net Test which is a Nursing Entrance Exam. I'm not going to be a nurse but,I will be going into the Medical Feild and I have to have a 51% (i Believe can't remember the exact %) in the Reading and a 43% on the Math. I think if I can pass this first test I can pass that too! So,keep me in your prayers that I pass both of these tests. I am going to buy the study guide for the NET Test this week to study on and prepare myself for that test.

Great Things are coming my Friends

I found out since I'm laid off that I can go back to school my friends yep thats right this 30 year old mama is going back to school and maybe I will be finished by the time my own child even gets into school herself. I found out by watching the news that I can return to school and actually get help in doing so. So,thats what I'm going to do. I've got about 10 weeks till my unemployment runs out and then no $$$$ so I want to prepare myself. This is no jobs at all to be found in this area so I guess I'm doing the proactive thing here and getting my booty back in school. There is a website for my state that lists in demand careers for this area and they can't give me assistance if I don't choose something within that feild. Its mostly medical type careers which is what I wanted to go into anyways so,I guess thats good! I'm in the beginning process of it all so I will keep you all posted! I'm suppose to get up to a $4,000 scholarship just for them assisting me and its also in with the new stimulus to get even more help! So thanks Mr. President!! I'm sure I will get even more aide & grants too so every little bit helps! Wish me luck!
