That's really just how I've been feeling lately.
I've been sick for about 20 days. I've had a cold that I just can't shake, though this morning I think I'm almost all the way done being sick.
I've been to the gym once in the last 16 days and it's making me depressed and anxious. I also feel that I've lost a lot of the progress I've made.

I think that my crappy health combined with everything else has made me lose interest in blogging temporarily.
I know I'll get back to it soon, but for now I haven't had a lot to say. Or much inspiration for that matter.
Christmas was good at least. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.

I'll be back in the swing of things soon.

It's officially winter here!

Torkie loves lounging by the heat vent and the faux fireplace Ryan's brother got for us. So cute!

Snow!!! It didn't stick though. We're supposed to get more tonight. :)

Five Question Friday, etc.

Yay it's Friday!
I'm so ready for some relaxation and time with Ryan, plus I/we have fun plans with friends this weekend.

I'm hoping we're going to put some Christmas lights up this weekend. I want to get a head start on them so I can enjoy them as long as possible. When I came home from the gym last night, Ryan had Christmas music on. It was the cutest thing and made feel so happy. Things like that are why I love him so much.

A quick nod to my husband: He is amazing. Not only does he get up before I leave to help me get my lunch together and start my car, he has even driven it around the neighborhood to warm it up. He is amazing and I am so happy he's mine. I feel lucky.

I've heard we're supposed to get some snow in the next couple days. As of right now, the weather report says Sunday, but it's been changing every day. I hope we get some. I love the snow. Even when it becomes a pain in the butt, I think it's fun because it's something different and maybe because I own AWD vehicles with snow tires to get around easily. Hahaha.

Snowmen are my favorite Christmas/winter "animal" :)

1. What Christmas song do you loathe?
I HATE the "Last Christmas I gave you my heart" song. Ugh. It annoys me so much.

2. Do you and your significant other cuddle at night or sleep on opposite sides of the bed?
A little of both. We usually start close and then end up apart, but the in the mornings end up cuddling again. Sometimes he breaths loud so I have to turn away. I'm a near silent breather most of the time.

3. Have you ever had surgery?
I had stitches on my eyebrow area from cutting it open when I was about 5 or 6 and then had a biopsy for a mole on my leg which also had stitches, but that's all. I've been lucky.

4. When do you typically have your holiday shopping done?
I would LIKE to have it done weeks before Christmas. I have some done now, but some people(cough mom, Ryan cough) don't give me ideas right away so I have to wait till I get some. Plus, on my side of the family, we draw names on thanksgiving to buy a gift for another person, so I can't get that done right away either.

5. If money were not an issue (and you HAD to pick something), what would your ultimate luxury item be?
I'd buy some amazing shoes/boots. I LOVE shoes but I really can't justify them very often. Other options: car stuff-stereo, suspension, other goodies; photography gear.

What I'm loving Wednesday!

Here's what I'm loving right now:

I'm loving that my first tank of diesel in the Marshmallow averaged 40mpg! How awesome is that?

I'm loving that I've already started my Christmas shopping. I'd say I'm about 1/3 of the way done! :D

I'm loving this photo of Torkie that one of my friends made. It's one of the funniest things I've seen in a while.

I'm loving that I was able to do 35 pull-ups with NO assistance last night. That's a new personal record for me. So exciting.

Seabrook, WA October 2010

Some of our friends and ourselves have decided to make a traditional yearly trip to the ocean in fall.
We started in 2009 and continued the tradition this year at Seabrook, Wa.
I've talked about what Seabrook is before, so I wont go into a lot of detail. It's a really neat place though.

We arrived on Friday October 8th and of course it was raining. Unfortunately, the weather report called for rain all weekend.
Bummer yes, but not the end of the world. Of course it turned sunny and beautiful on the day we left.
The house we had picked to stay in was wonderful and we were all really happy with our choice.
I didn't get a lot of photos inside because it was so dark the whole time we were there.

We hung out, played games, soaked in the hot tub, painted pottery, attempted to walk on the beach and just enjoyed each others company.

All in all, the trip was a great success and I can't wait till next year!

Sunny weather the day we leave. This is one of the main streets in town looking towards the ocean.

Torkie enjoyed exploring the yard.

He sat right by the car and wouldn't move while we were packing.

Final good bye to the ocean.

Torkie had a great time!
