Current Mood: Chilling & Go Colts
Well, been a long while since I updated last. I’m not even sure if I want to go back and look……lol
Lets start with the gym. Still hitting it Mon-Fri….so that is good. =) I’ve hit 3.75 within 30min and maxed out at 8.0 in speed for 25.5 min. I’m no longer trying to push the distance/speed other then maintaining it. I want to work on my back thigh muscles so I’m working on the inclines. So if I can increase those while maintaining speed/distance it would be a good thing.
I’m still getting my abs in, needing to push it more. I haven’t been pushing it much due to me somehow pulling/twisting my back on the 8th. I have no idea how I did it. I was in bed, just woke up and was sat up to adjust my pillows….doesn’t make sense. My back is feeling better, but still get twings.
We picked up new Star Trek Tues. Took a bit to get to the different actors playing the main characters, but they did really good on the casting. The actors really picked up the mannerism of Spock, Kirk, Scotty, Sulu, Chekov, Uhura, and specially Bones. I don’t want to give up the story line, but it did throw me for a loop. I need to see it again a few more times for it all to sink in, but I did enjoy it.
We also got X-Men Origins : Wolverine….that was really good. =)
We also watched Unforgivable Blackness: The Rise and Fall of Jack Johnson & The Great White Hope, the fictional account of Jack Johnson. I know that we have progressed, but it really hasn’t been that long since that time. Those stories happened about 100yrs ago, but even 30yrs ago it was extremely in your face. And there are still people out there with those racist attitudes in this country. Then, of course, the rest of the world still has those attitudes when it comes to different races and even tribes. I will never understand it. But I don’t know what is worst an in your face racist or a closet one?
I like to watch historical things, but I when I watch things like that I wonder about the human race. I don’t understand how people can’t see each other’s humanity and how they can treat people like that. Why and how can they do that, since it still happens?
Hubby’s jeep got egged last weekend…….gggrrr That do pisses us off. Luckily it has been raining, but we did get paint damage. =( Called the police and made a report for insurance.
If you’ve been following my tweets, we now have Verizon FIOS. It is sweet! We have 4 Big Ten channels, no reason for us to miss another Purdue game. =) We got the highest internet speed that they offered in the resident bundle and with our load on it, it still maintains above average speed and haven’t had the connection issues that we have had in the past when we had 2 different internets. So the TV and internet speed I’m totally enjoying.
The issues that we are having is that their registration SUCKS!!!! They offer FIOS TV Central, were you can program your dvrs from online and it forces you to download some software that is OUTDATED! Because it won’t load on to my mac snow leopard. It SUCKS! Then you have to deal with 2 different sites…. dot net and dot com…make up your damn mind. I’m so frustrated and pissed at their lack of support.
I said screw it and got my vaio out and did it through there. All the crap that it wanted to install was stuff I didn’t need anyway. So we are registered for the TV Central, now waiting on the verification email for using it to get to me….it has already been about 2 hrs…ggeeezz
The only good support we did get was when I called to get our phone number (it came with the bundle) unlisted since we were getting sale calls and they were really pissing us off. So they switched the number for free since they didn’t offer the unlisted when we placed the order and got us unlisted. I also got us registered on the do not call list while on the phone getting the new number.
We have no plans what so ever to give our number out, we got it cause it made the bundle cheaper over all and I can use the unlimited US/Canada calls for business. So I can save our anytime minutes on our cell for our own use.
Workwise, I’ve been busy as usual. The payroll no where near as bad as it was few months ago. We worked on a few of the issues that was increasing the size. But it is still a beast and I get tied up in for a few days before and a few days after.
Our babies are doing good. Alexis still likes to yell. But the vet confirmed that cats get louder when they lose their hearing, so now we know why she is so loud….ouch….it does hurt the ears. =) We took the wonder twin, Drew Brees & Sakura, in for their annual. They are now updated on all their shots and their licenses renewed. The wonder twins are feisty as normal. Sakura seems to like nibbling on me when she walks by and they both take over my office chair as soon as I get up….I swear, no respect…..lol The other day Sakura walked up to me, bit my foot and calmly walked away, like it was nothing…..she is just plain evil….grin
We given up on trimming their claws after they lost some to freaking out in bags. Our leather furniture is already marked up from them jumping on and off it, so what do you do? So their claws are now long and evil looking.
Not sure if I’m going to put a tree this holiday. I love having a tree and all the sparkles on it. But I can’t use my artifical tree because, unlike all the other cats we have ever had, the wonder twins LOVE to climb. And their big butts bend the wire branches…Sakura is over 10# and Drew is over 11#. I was trying to get a tree from The Living Christmas Tree, but I have yet to ever get a response from them…which is annoying the hell out of me. I’ve even played around with getting a small table top, but with those 2 it will end up knocked over and destroyed. =(
I’m even debating on giving up on a tree this year. But it is so hard to break from something that I enjoy so much. =( I just don’t know what I’m going to do.
Been watching games all day. At least Purdue won the Oaken Bucket for another year. Been a rough year for us, all of our own doing….int, dropped balls….gggrrr But our team shows a lot of potential for next year.
We are in our winter weather, rain and chilly. Nearly all of our leaves are off of the back trees. So we’ve lost our illusion of privacy. And it gets dark by 5pm…by 6pm it feels like it should be 10pm……lol
So I’m downstairs as I write this, just wanted out of the office. I need to work on the holiday letter since I want to get the cards done in the next few weeks.
We get the Colts game tomorrow…..grin But not the Saints, hopefully we’ll get them online.
Well, I’m going to close this….took me much longer then expected to write it……lol
