It's not fair!

After my last entry I got to thinking...hmm, I am wrinkly, creaky and graying, so how is it fair that I am also breaking out like a teenager?! I went back on the pill and it usually clears me up. Not this time. It is bad, people! So bad that I ordered Proactive. I've used it twice and actually think I am clearing up a little! (If anyone is thinking about trying it, let me know so I can refer you and I can get free products by doing so.) Hopefully I will be red-spot free soon!

I'm freaking out!

My knees creak!!!!!!!!!!

It's really giving me the heebie jeebies. I walk up the stairs...creak. I do a lunge...creak. (yes, I am trying to exercise, but that's a whole other entry) I basically walk around...creak.

I feel like 36 is the year for me. The year I start to see the aging process begin. I have noticed more wrinkles (and not just my driving eye wrinkles*) more gray hair, and creaks!!!! I can't get over it. I can handle the graying and wrinkling b/c that seems normal and "everybody's doing it", but I did not expect to creak in my 30's. I feel young, look young, but apparently sound old. Can I do anything about this creaking? Do I need to drink joint juice?

Here comes the whining...I don't wanna be I have one more thing to freak out about.

*driving eye wrinkles...the wrinkles that are more prominent on the left eye b/c of sitting in the driver's seat too many sunny days.

Also known as...

...the Fall Whore. That's what Dan calls me b/c I LOVE fall and everything that has to do with it. Once it is September I start with the decorating. Pumpkins here, cornstalks there....and oh the candles! My favorite is "Harvest" from Yankee Candle. It smells just like fall. Wait! I can't believe I didn't mention this first...the fall treats!!!!!!!!! I love to make (and eat) apple pie, pumpkin rolls, apple crisp, leaf cookies... And don't forget the fall candies...fall colored M&Ms and Hershey Kisses. Alright, back to nature...the Autumn colors in the North are gorgeous and I usually get homesick this time of year. We had some really great pumpkin patches and farms and orchards we used to go to. And just driving around in the colorful tunnel of trees down any given street gave you a sense of awe. I know the leaves turn here too, but it's not the same. The colors aren't as vibrant. I still get into fall and get obsessed with taking cool fall pictures of Cole. But I miss the fall crafty decorations at the fairs and the 947 pound pumpkins. Oh yeah, they grow 'em big in Ohio! Back to the treats...pumpkin cheesecake, mmmmmmm. Yes, fall is a wonderful time of year. The sights, sounds and smells make me happy. But mostly the treats!

I met Blair!

"You take the good, you take the bad..."
Lisa Whelchel (Blair from The Facts of Life) came to speak at a church in the area. She talked about her experiences as a mom and gave hints to make time for yourself. She was cute and funny. OF COURSE I had to get my picture taken with her! " take them both and then you have..." Everybody now "The Facts of Life, The Facts of Life."

When will I learn?!?!?!?

Okay, I can't tell you how many times I have received the following email...and I still can't remember the answers! How is that possible? Years and years of reading and laughing...and nothing. Wait...can you hear that? wwwwwwwwwwwwsh. That's me emptying my head a little to make room for the Giraffe Test. Go ahead, send it to me. I'm ready.

The Giraffe Test

1. How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?

Stop and think about it and decide on your answer before you scroll down.

The correct answer is: Open the refrigerator, put in the giraffe, and close the door. This question tests whether you tend to do simple things in an overly complicated way.

2 . How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator?

Did you say, Open the refrigerator, put in the elephant, and close the refrigerator?

Wrong Answer.

Correct Answer: Open the refrigerator, take out the giraffe, put in the elephant and close the door. This tests your ability to think through the repercussions of your previous actions.

3. The Lion King is hosting an animal conference. All the animals
Attend .... Except one. Which animal does not attend?

Correct Answer : The Elephant t. The elephant is in the refrigerator. You just put him in there.? This tests your memory. Okay, even if you did not answer the first three questions correctly, you still have one more chance to show your true abilities.

4. There is a river you must cross but it is used by crocodiles, and
You do not have a boat. How do you manage it?

Correct Answer: You jump into the river and swim across. Have you not been listening? All the crocodiles are attending the Animal Meeting. This tests whether you learn quickly from your mistakes.

According to Anderson Consulting Worldwide, around 90% of the
Professionals they tested got all questions wrong, but many preschoolers got several correct answers. Anderson Consulting says this conclusively disproves the theory that most professionals have the brains of a four-year-old.

Not to be confused with my porn name...

I was looking stuff up and came across how to find my fairy name. Here is what it said...

Your fairy is called Gossamer Cornfilter
She is a creator of bounty and harvest.
She lives in spiderwebbed wonderlands and insect grottos.
She is only seen on midsummer's eve.
She wears tiny black spiders on her dresses. She has butterfly wings the colour of yellow corn.

Um, bugs creep me way this fairy is living with insects and WEARING them!!!!

Privacy...what's that?

Okay, so I am laying in bed watching TV on Monday night when Dan comes in wanting to know if I was watching Blue's Clues. So, this man who 1) is supposed to be at racquetball on Mondays and hasn't gone in three weeks and 2) can't take the time to read the blog about his son, somehow figures out how to get into my personal blog...and read it! Great. Now another blog that has to be censored. I guess that just means that I will save the really good stuff for phone calls and GNO. HA Dan, now you'll never know it all! Anyway, I thought it only appropriate that I make this list.
Top 5 Hottest TV/movie Stars
2. Brad Pitt
3. Rob Lowe
4. Michael Vartan (he was on Alias and dated Jennifer Garner for awhile)
5. Lee Pace (he is on Pushing Daisies)

Notice no JOE! Also, this list is subject to change at any time, but I think the #1 spot is pretty secure.

I've noticed that I picked a lot of guys with dark hair. I've always liked blond guys, but I guess as I get older I'm digging the dark dudes more.

Have I gone on and on enough about other men? Is this enough to keep Dan away...or intrigue him more?

I'm a ballerina!

Today I took my first ballet class. No, I am not kidding...I am 36 years old and am finally fulfilling my little girl dream. I have always wanted to take dance class, but being raised by a dad I was entered into the world of sports. I swam, played basketball, soccer, golf...but I always wanted to wear a tutu. Now I get my take dance, not wear a tutu. Although, you never know, they put on the Nutcracker every year and need adults!
Today we did work at the bar. We worked on terminology and did plies and other leg thingies that i can't remember the name of! Anyway, I liked the class and will continue to take it every Saturday afternoon. Oh, I am going this week to get ballet slippers and a leotard/leggings/skirt to wear to class. That's what ballerinas in training wear...even old ones!

If you can't take the heat, get out of the south.

When I was younger I loved the heat and sun. I always dreamed of living in the south where it was warm and sunny. Oh, I would be so happy. Now that I actually live in the south (although in my dreams i never, NEVER imagined I would live in Mississippi!) I can't take the heat. It makes me sick and miserable. AND I find myself smiling and being extra cheery on rainy, gloomy days. I heard about Gustav and thought...Alright! We'll be gettin' some crappy weather! Hooray!
