Life Update April, 2013

It has yet again been a while since I updated. I thought that I would give an update on what has been going on in my life. The last time that I updated this site was back a little over 3 months ago when I posted asking James out. Three months later and I am glad that I did! I know that if you go back in the archive of this site and read previous posts about ex-boyfriends, you will see that I always think that they are “the one” and that it is going to last forever and all of this. This time, I think it is the real deal.

In the past few months, we have been super chill about things and we love each other very much. It isn’t an intense burn bright and fast then go out type of feeling this time. It built up slowly and is fairly intense right now and has stabilized there. We have not argued or had any fights about anything which has never happened to me in any relationship. We both want the same things from life. A house, kids, time with each other to travel, relax and just be happy.


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.
(more…) has the best customers!

I sent some information to a customer about checking for interference on his line which includes welding equipment and got the following reply:

“it’s possible that my next door neighbor has secretly taken up arc welding in his living room next door, but then, now that I think about it, one of the failures happened when he was at his church giving a sermon, so I don’t think that’s it, either… (grin).”

Love it!


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!
