Gotta love the weather

I was supposed to have another long crazy busy day today but thankfully we had huge rainstorms this morning and I couldn’t go anywhere!

I still have to work from 3-8pm at the gym today but I am getting to relax all morning. So nice!

I let my son get a ride to school with the neighbor while I walked both dogs in the pouring rain. I wore a raincoat and used an umbrella. Neither dog was happy to be outside so they both did their business quick and went back inside. UNTIL…

Lucky ran out the door when I was trying to hook up Amber but thankfully came back a minute later without getting run over or running away. I was so glad!

I took Amber to the vet on Monday and she didn’t get Lucky’s worms. Whew! Only $178 to find that out. 🙄

I also got a postcard from Betty!!! Dogwood tree facts that are very interesting! We have them here. Beautiful trees too!

Keep those postcards coming! Or cards…whatever is easier for you!

That’s about it. I’m going to watch a bit of Netflix until I have to go to work.

SO exciting!!!

Clients, work, school, studying, blah, blah, blah.

I have the BEST news!!! My son got into the top rated high school in Texas!!!! We just found out yesterday and I am thrilled beyond belief! We went to Taco Cabana to celebrate and he brought his latest BFF with him.

I also have bad news. Poor Lucky has whip worm which means I have to give him medicine for 5 days. No fun! At least I just mix it with food. I don’t have to trick him into taking a pill!

Short but sweet! I didn’t want to bore you with how at work today there was nobody in the gym so I got a workout in 24 minutes on the elliptical until a woman came in).

Finally a minute of peace!

Yesterday was another crazy day with an exam in Anatomy lab and work for 5 hours.

I was supposed to have a job today before going to work at 3pm to 8pm.. I called her this morning and she canceled on me. How awesome for me! I have spent the morning doing absolutely NOTHING and it feels so good! I’ve been watching Netflix and playing phone games.

So I hope y’all are doing well. Lucky is such a good dog! I think both dogs are happy that I’m home today too. Lucky doesn’t have to be locked in his crate and Amber gets to snuggle with her Mommy. Lucky is napping in his crate with the door open. He’s so silly!

I took Lucky to the pet store Natural Paws and we got to take an Easter photo. The manager there put bunny ears on me too. We had fun. I had to buy more dog food. I had to buy a 25 pound bag. I’m not used to feeding a bigger dog! A small bag used to last me a month with Amber!

Lucky is very comfortable with me and has been on my bed with me and Amber too. Amber is NOT happy about this either!

Have a great day!

Fun Monday

I mean, I guess. More fun than a stick in the eye anyway.

School: We have an exam tomorrow so he gave us a study guide. We have to know all of the main muscles in the ENTIRE body. OMG. Anyone want to take this exam for me???

Came home, let the dogs out to pee, then off to work at 10. Working on the gym floor was fun again. I got to try out machines that I hadn’t tried. We have a treadmill that goes up to an incline of 30! That thing is HARD at more than one mile an hour!!! I think it would be good for mountain climbing practice though. I may have to use it more.

I worked until 4pm then came home to walk the dogs. My son got home shortly after so he took Lucky out. Whew! I was already tired.

I went to the grocery store at 5pm. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I really thought it would be very crowded and not easy to get around but it really wasn’t. Because we needed all the laundry, dishes, and bathroom stuff plus food, my bill was a lot higher than normal. Oh well. I got STARR snacks for my son.

In case you don’t know what that is, it is the standardized testing for kids these days. Back in my day, it was TAAS. Anyway, all the kids have to take it. If the parents don’t want them to take it (we have that option), those kids have to stay home on those days.

I caught Oliver in the dog crate checking it out last night. He’s funny.

BFF sent me a box. She even sent me a postcard from Dallas so that’s going in the collage! Plus she sent me another Cue since my secondary one decided to break open.

I also got a postcard from the lovely Jinjer!!! Thank you SO much!!! Y’all go follow her! And don’t forget to send me a card or postcard from where you are to be in the collage at the end of the year!

So good morning! I’m about to jump in the shower. I work 10-3 today at the front desk. I have Friday off and I am going to take it! I am so tired!!! I have worked every single day since LAST Monday. Plus I need to study for this crazy exam tomorrow! Have a great day!

I keep saying I am going to blog then I run out of hours in the day

Sorry about this absence. Okay, okay, not really sorry. I’m crazy busy so why should I be sorry for not updating my own blog? Anyway, updates!

Friday:

Took Styled to get her hair done and get groceries. Came home to study. Worked from 5-9pm closing the gym and actually had a good night with my coworkers. Good guys and I enjoyed closing!

Saturday:

Worked from 8am-12pm. Got off late since somebody else was late getting to work. Got to go to the other part of the gym and get on their schedule for today. They have set schedules so I like it! Plus, more hours!

Came home, took my son to the movies with his friends (they saw Shazam – whatever that is), then came home and studied. Picked the kids up 4 hours later, studied more until I passed out.

Today:

Woke up, went to take my Anatomy exam at 10am across town. Probably failed because I don’t think I studied enough. Came home after stopping at the bakery we love and started my new position on the gym floor from 12-6pm. I love it! I got to walk around, show people how to use the gym equipment, and not be tied to a desk. I work there tomorrow as well. Then I go back to the front desk on Tuesday.

When I got home today, my son and his friends were at our neighborhood pool. It was freezing cold in there too so they’re insane (they are teenage boys). I ordered pizza for all of them (5 kids total) and myself. I was starving!

Now I am in bed at 9:30pm because I have school at 8am and work from 10-4. I also have to get groceries and cook food. PLUS I have another exam on Wednesday. It’s another crazy week in the life of Julie.

Lucky decided that he wanted more attention from me and jumped up into my bed. Like not even a running jump, just “Boop” right up here (my bed is about 4 feet off the ground). He’s so silly too!

Astros won today against the A’s. So excited that I got to watch it AT WORK! I had a bunch of people ask me to turn on the game so I did. Hehehe This picture is when we were behind but we came back and won 9-8 so Go Astros!!!

My son and his friends came up to the gym and decided to play racketball and let me take a couple of silly photos of them.

All in all, a great day! I hope yours was as well!

Oh crap it’s Thursday night already???

Wednesday:

Hectic morning. We woke up at 6. I usually leave for school by 7:15 at the latest. My son overslept again and took Lucky out but came right back which means I had to walk him. 30 minutes later, at 7:30, he still hadn’t pooped. 🙄 I put him in his crate and took off.

Traffic was a nightmare. I turned around and tried to go a different way. I remembered I needed my book for class so I raced back home. I looked in my room but it wasn’t there! OMG, it was in my damn trunk! Left again and didn’t get to school until 8:20am. Oops!

I was thankful for my professor yesterday. He was going over the nerve which I suck at. He finished up and told the class to work on their book. He called me up to his desk, said he counted me present for Monday, and asked for my book. He saw it was complete and told me to go ahead and go for the day. Yay!

I left class at 8:45am. I came home, walked both dogs, and Lucky FINALLY did his thing. At 9:40, I drove to the wife of the couple (if you don’t remember, the husband passed last April). I haven’t driven her in over a year! She asked me to drop her at her church function and come back to get her. Sounds good to me!

I dropped her off and went home to study. I read a chapter and a half in my Anatomy book and then went back to pick her up. I would have read more but my mother was here and kept coming in my room to chat with me or ask me questions (like I could even answer them).

I picked her up and took her home. I came back home to read a bit more. I had to be at work for a CPR/First Aid class at 5. I got there and just my luck, the big boss was in class with me and I got to be his partner. 😳 It was scheduled to be a 4 hour class but was only 2.5 hours so that was nice. Came home and played games until I went to sleep at 11:30pm.

Today:

I bet you can guess I woke up at 6 again. I don’t know how to get myself on a waking up at 5am schedule but I am still trying! When taking my son to school, as we are pulling up to the school, he says he left some girls present at home and can we go back? NO! I dropped him at school and came home.

I ended up having to walk both dogs again before going to work at 10am. Since it was raining, I drove the one minute to my job. It worked out well though. For my 15 minute break, I sat in my car, ate my snack I had brought, refilled my water, and used my Cue. No complaints today because nobody can see me parked facing a wall in a dark parking garage!

I left at 3 and came home to walk the dogs. I went back to work at 4:45 to cover a coworker that had to go get her car fixed. Umm, ok. Sure, I missed an hour and a half from the training the night before so I wanted to make it up anyhow. It went well, even during the crazy times of SO many people coming in.

Well, 6pm rolls up when I am supposed to leave and there’s nobody to cover me! Finally at 6:10, one of the high schoolers gets there and I ask him to come over. I got out of there as fast as I could!

It’s 9pm, I keep telling myself to study and have only read one nutrition chapter. I have to take a quiz tonight and the exam tomorrow. Tomorrow I also have Styled for her normal hair thing plus I have to work tomorrow night. I cannot WAIT until Sunday! Sunday morning I will go take my Anatomy exam and then I am free the rest of the day! Maybe I can clean my poor kitchen and actually cook something!

TTYL my friends!

Boring but crazy Tuesday!!

This has to be quick because I need to get moving, I overslept this morning by an hour so I have 30 minutes to get ready for today.

Walking Amber last night, we saw a possum and it stood still while I snapped its picture!

Yesterday I woke up, took my dog out (Amber), and got my kid to school. I came home and listened to all of the lectures for my nutrition class exam that’s this Friday. Both dogs rode with me to take my son to school and this was on the way home. He looks so sad!

At 11am, I took Amber out and then Lucky. Why won’t Lucky poop for my son??? He poops for me! Because it took Lucky so long, I was running late for work.

I stopped at a tree and got some kumquats for my coworkers and clocked in 5 minutes early at 11:55am. Whew!

I took a break around 2:45pm. When I came back, my boss pulls me aside and says somebody called her that I was smoking outside. What?!? I did use my Cue OFF property but I haven’t smoked in 3 months!!! I take 3 puffs off my vape on my break off their property and my boss gets a call? Come to find out it’s because I had on my uniform. I have to cover it or take it off if I do that.

That upset me the rest of the day. I was off work at 5pm and came home to walk Amber. I told my son to walk his dog too. I had to be back up at work for a meeting from 6-8pm. So I raced back up there and we had our meeting.

My eating was awful yesterday as I was not prepared. I was so busy trying to do all my stuff that I didn’t prepare snacks or lunch. It’s my fault. Thankfully I won’t gain many pounds in one day so I will just be back on track today and it will be fine. No true exercise either although I did get 20 minutes on my watch and almost 600 move minutes!

Another great busy day today as well so I will chat at y’all later!
