Manual Labor

Yesterday was a nice hot and sweaty day. So what were Brian and I doing on this gloriously hot day? Floating in the pool? Of course not! How silly! We were doing some manual labor in the yard.  We've slowly been getting things spruced up around here for the last couple of weeks.  Yesterday, we trimmed all the bushes, replanted our ridiculously huge palm tree by the pool into its last big pot.  If it grows out of this one, we are so screwed cuz Home Depot does not sell anything bigger and I refuse to pay for $50 for a pot.  He pressure-washed the entire patio and all furniture, the front steps, sidewalk and driveway while I did some household chores and then we started re-mulching everything in the front yard. Now we just have the backyard to finish, the bushes in front and fertilizing, buy another couple plants for the front yard and that should be done.  Next will be to repaint the doors and our part will be done.

Hopefully we can sneak in more pool time today cuz it looks like it's going to be another beautiful day.  Enjoy everyone!

Woo Hoo for 3 Day Weekend!!

I am so happy it's Friday! I was able to get out of work around 2pm, did some errands and can now enjoy a bit of the weekend. Yippee! I do have some stats homework to contend with...and lets not forget the midterm in my other pesky class....but other than that, it will hopefully be a nice and relaxing weekend with my honey and wilson. Looking forward to it. Hopefully we have some nice weather over the weekend, right now it's raining but hopefully it will pass over fairly quickly.  I want to get a least one run in this weekend and lots of pool time and catch up on some shows.  Bottom happy for three days off!

School Rules the Roost

Yes, I admit I've been a bad blogger this year. And I am going to blame the majority of it on school. Classes have been keeping me quite busy and this semester I think I've bitten off more than I can chew with a 300 level course and two 400 level courses so the work load is tremendous.  Blech. I will be happy to be done with this session, that's for sure! The great surprise was finding out I will not be able to finish at the end of the summer as anticipated since one of my core classes is not offered till Fall II session. Lovely. So, looks like I get to go to school till the end of the year, but at least I can space out next sesssion's classes and reduce it to two-forensic psychology here I come!!

Other than that, work has been brutal as usual and the pool is finally warm enough to float in. Hopefully I can do some of that this weekend. As for running, I haven't laced up my shoes in weeks. I hope I get back into some type of exercise routine once school settles down a bit. Alright, work is calling so I guess it's time to be productive. Happy Tuesday everyone!

Since I feel so out of the blog loop, how about some miscellaneous crap to entertain you....or at least myself:

Things I'm looking forward to this summer:
  • weekends in the pool
  • beach time!
  • getting back into kickboxing
  • did I mention floating aimlessly in the pool?
  • reading some good books in the pool (do you see a theme forming here?)
Things I'm not looking as forward to:
  • running in the oppressive heat and humidity
  • my third and final statistics class. seriously, this is friggin enough!
  • the ant population reemerging in the house
  • all my favorite shows ending and reruns beginning
  • humidity...humidity....humidity
Although this weather is a bit sticky for May, it's ready to snow in good ole MN so I guess I can't crank and whine too much.  Although sweating while pumping gas is an outrage.

Time for wine!
