Blogging

Well. here I am again, updating my blog after a number of months of nothing. I really do want to update more often. If you look back in my history, I think that almost every post that I make after not blogging for a while commits to blogging again more regularly. Anyway…

I haven’t really talked about what it has been like at the new house. We have lived here for a little over a year now and I quite like it. It is conveniently located on the bus route for me to get to work if I need it and the same route goes up to Onalaska and the mall. It has come in handy a number of times since moving in.

New iPad!!!

I know that I haven’t updated this blog very much recently, but I have been so busy. I just got one of the new iPads yesterday and that is actually what I am using to update on right now! Hopefully I will get in the habit of updating this more often, but how many times have you “heard” me say that?!?!?!

Anyway, I will write a more in depth post soon, but I just wanted to post a quick update.

Goals

So I changed my availability at work so I don’t work on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. I think these days are going to be the days that I go to BioLife, which was the original reason for taking that time off, get back to vlogging on YouTube on those days and update my blog here. I need to do some stuff like this and get into some form of routine in my life. Kohl, Alex and I are also going to start this running routine soon. I just need to find the motivation to get up in the morning and do it.

When you are running, all the tips that I have seen online say that you should do it in the morning because you are burning calories and fat from your body and not any meal that you just ate. It also wakes you up, gets the blood pumping and you can take your morning shower afterward and not have to take an additional shower if you run in the evening. I am looking forward to getting back to running. I was feeling good when I was doing it about 6 months ago, but then I ran on a high humidity day and I almost died. That alone made me lose all motivation to run. Now that summer is winding down and fall is coming, it will be a good opportunity to pick it back up. I am not sure what I am going to do in the winter to keep it up. I’ll cross that snowy bridge when I come to it I suppose.

Now off to the People’s Food Co-Op to get these amazing energy bars that I had when Laura was here. They are expensive, but totally worth it!

Changes for the Site!

Again! Well, this time I updated to WordPress 3.0 and with that I changed themes and then changed themes again. I like this one and I have it all configured to work ok at the moment. I hope to add more to this site again (other than twitter updates). Eventually, when I have more time and I am not tired, I will make a post on how Minneapolis Pride was, my iPhone 4 experience and trying to swap roommates and/or move out.

Feeling MUCH better

Well, after having the last few days to rest, I am feeling MUCH better than I have felt in the last few weeks. The time off of work and rest (mostly sleeping in and staying in bed) did wonders for me. I also spent the time cleaning up some files on my computer, organizing music in my iTunes to work better with syncing on my iPhone.

Beth is away visiting her dad in Spokane Washington and she will be back after the weekend. Kohl went to donate plasma and both times that he went it has turned out to be troublesome. The first day he almost passed out because of the guy next to him bleeding all over the place. The second time it was an issue because he wasn’t well enough hydrated. He will be more hydrated next time he goes so he can complete a donation.
