Looking Back

Photography Blog
I love this photo of Duluth taken by a girl I knew in college.  Some days, I think back on my crazy out of control times there and miss it a tad bit.  Then, I think of how much it helped me grow up and how much I've changed since smoking "all natural" cigarettes at the rate of a pack a day, drinking cheap beer and whiskey and I mean CHEAP, and not giving a crap about school.  If I could go back and change a few things, I think I would.  I would have at least raised my GPA and shown more appreciation to the teachers who actually inspired me to go to class more than once a week.  Doc Martin still tops my list.  That is a little surprising because he taught the stats class I dreaded when I registered for it.  He made it fun and gave me an A+.  I never thought I'd figure it out.

I'm still sicker than crap.  I don't understand the phrase "sick as a dog" because the entire time I've been trying to sleep and rest like the doctor says, the dogs are running around, barking and playing.  They are helping take care of me a little by just being absolutely hysterical and adorable.

While being sick, I was able to finish Bitter is the New Black.  It was extremely entertaining.  She is a very talented writer and I found myself laughing out loud often.  I really respect people who write about their own lives and are confident enough that someone will find them interesting.  I am not really too concerned about people thinking I'm entertaining, I just hope that I will find myself entertaining in 20 years when I look back on all of this.

I'm still on my healthy eating week, but seeing as though I've been sick, I've been only eating a little a few times a day.  Yesterday I was content with a breakfast bar when I tried to go to work in the morning.  I had a banana as a mid morning snack.  Lunch was out of the question because my stomach didn't feel so hot.  I had a few slices of cucumber in the afternoon and for dinner, I had egg whites in a tortilla wrap with cheddar cheese and green peppers.  I'm going to try the veggie wrap for lunch tomorrow.

Last but not least, our air conditioning works again.  J will be home from his business trip tomorrow evening and will walk into to a beautifully temperatured home and his wife and dogs that get REALLY bored when he's not around.
