Wednesday Randoms

Work is S-U-P-E-R slow right now.  I should enjoy it because come late August, it will get crazy, but really it’s just annoying.

I stopped consuming aspartame this week.  Mostly because I thought it might have been causing me to crave sugar.  I know there are other harmful things it does to your body, but honestly I’m too freaked out to google it.  I like living in denial.  I had horrible headaches the first 2 days, but today I haven’t had any issues.  And I do think I’ve been craving sweets less, and just not AS hungry in general.

I’m opening an Etsy shop!  Hopefully sometime soon.  I was all gung ho about it, then realized that I needed to actually MAKE a few things that I will be selling, so now I’m in the process of doing that.  Here’s what I (think) I’ll be selling: wreaths, nursery letters, and picture frames.  My friend Katie created a logo for me and I love it!  We’ll see how it goes.  I’m scared that it will be a big flop and then I’ll feel dumb.

Cooper is the funniest thing ever these days.  He says the most hilarious stuff, and is always doing things that make us think he is so smart.  This age is just amazing to me.

I joined a gym last week.  It is WAY too hot to run outside in the evenings (it was still 100* at 9 last night), and I was no longer getting up for my 4am runs.  I have major mommy guilt about getting home an hour later on the days I go, but I feel so much better when I work out that I’m just making myself let it go.  Right now, I’m only going twice during the week, and then once or twice on the weekends.

Speaking of runs, some co-workers and I are funning a marathon relay in November, I think I’ve mentioned it before.  Here is the map.  There are 5 legs, the first and last being the longest.  I have never, ever run before.  I’ve never even made it to the end of couch to 5k.  And I would really like to run the last leg of the race because it goes through my college campus, but it’s also the longest leg, so I’m not sure.  We aren’t running this for time, our goal is just to finish and have fun, so I need to remember that I guess.  That, and the fact that the last leg is mostly all downhill :)


Cooper went to the grocery store with me last weekend, and he was really not wanting to ride in the cart.  Luckily we were there at the crack of dawn, so it didn’t really matter if he was running around.  But then I remembered when I was little I would ride on the front of the cart, so I showed him how and he loved it!  Heehee :)


August is my birthday month :)  Lee and I are going out of town for a little while, by ourselves, and I can’t wait!  I’m going to sleep in past 5am!!  I am counting down the days.

Our cable bill was $30 more than usual last month, and when I called to find out why, I wasn’t surprised that it was because an “introductory offer” had ended after a year.  So, I said I wanted to get rid of something because I was not going to pay that much.  After about 10 minutes on the phone, they added all of the premium movie channels and LOWERED my bill back down to the original cost.  This makes NO sense to me, although I know that it happens with our cable company all the time.  Now, mind you, I will have to call and do this whole thing again in 6 months when THIS special runs out.  So stupid.  Just charge normal prices for things.  Oh well.  In the meantime, we’re enjoying the movie channels.

The Etsy shop sounds great! You can do it!

We call Cox every six months. Annoying but worth it. When I call now, I just ask to be transferred directly to the Retention Department.
