Brush, Rinse, Repeat

I should be at the Jazz game but I thought I'd do the responsible thing and stay home and do homework. So I started to do homework but then it lead me to thinking that I haven't updated in a while, so that's why I'm here. My life has become repetitive and I might go crazy. I was looking at my planner and every day there is the same things to do: class, homework, gym, scriptures and repeat. I wish I had something new to do each day but when something new does get thrown into the mix I have homework that blocks it. I have never had this much schooling and I want to cry everyday, I want to quit everyday. I only have 1 more semester after this and then I am done but sometimes I don't want to even finish, my life has become boring. We don't even vacation anymore because of how much schooling I have and since I don't have a job that leaves us broke after our bills are paid for the month.

And then days that I want to give up ( everyday) I think that even though this sucks right now, I'm pretty lucky to even go to school. Instead of bitching I should just suck it up and be grateful. Everyday I try to start off grateful and then somewhere in the day it gets lost. I'll just have to try again tomorrow, maybe throwing some gratitude in the day might mix up my routine.

Biggest Loser

I just love this show. I have never watched it before but I stumbled upon it last Tuesday and even though I only saw the weigh ins at the end of the show I'm hooked. I love that it's real people and they are there to help each other and it's not about who sleeps with who, and who is the sluttiest. You didn't have to be slutty to get on the show, unlike American Idol bikini girl if anyone watched it last night. I already am the most sensitive person ever and I totally cried last night. It was just so sad the 2 people that try the hardest were in the bottom 2. I am so glad Dan got to stay though. He is 19 and his weight started out at 454, he is just short and stubby and I love him. I did get a little more happy at the end when it showed how well Jerry was doing after the show. I think I might be too sensitive to watch this show because I always think about whats going on in their heads. I really want Dan to win because everyone else has had somewhat of a life and I'm sure Dan hasn't had as much opportunities as some of the other players. But then again I could just be a sucker and Dan could really be some Mac Daddy. If you haven't watched it you totally should. Luckily on Tuesday's I have a couple of shows, otherwise I don't think I could stay up very late for Joe's soccer games.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

We went from this on Christmas day to...

This on New Years in Palm Desert!

Joe and I went on a last minute vacation to Palm Desert with my sister and her family. Tyler called us Tuesday night to go and we left a few hours later. We had to get our last minute vacay in while we still can with Marriott. We got to Palm Desert with Beautiful weather at an average of 70 degrees a day. That is how Christmas should be sunny and clear skies, not snow stormy so you can't see the car in front of you. Joe got a couple rounds of golf in while I got some sun rays. On New Year's eve we played games with Tyler and Jeff like it was no body's business. While everyone else at the hotel was in their best dressy/slutty attire we were hanging out in our jeans and pajamas. While everyone was drinking the finest champagne and eating expensive meals. Jeff got us a plethora of treats that covered all our taste buds. We had some Fritos, milk duds, diet cokes, butterfingers and many more treats But we did start the new year right with a bottle of sparkling cider, well we opened it a little earlier than midnight but it lasted until midnight so that still counts. It was a great vacation of relaxing and basically free so I'd say it was a good way to start the year. (Tori failed to mention that if you look close enough you can see my ball way over there on the green ;))

Joe and I were supposed to leave Sunday morning but we decided to leave Saturday night after a serious round of dominos. We drove through the night but while Joe slept( only to Vegas) I got a lot of thinking done.

Things I learned on a road trip:

1.Windmills are the most amazing things to look at when you can just see their silloute

2. I'm really good at the ABC game, but playing by yourself isn't as satisfying as playing against someone. I would have won even if Joe was awake

3. "Cry me a River" by JT is such a great song and is so about Brittany, which got me to think that maybe if they were still together then maybe she would have never gone crazy, which then lead to it's JT's fault she is crazy

4. People at 2 in the morning think they can drive in the pass lane just because not very many people are on the road... WRONG you should still drive in the slow lane because it sucks breaking while on cruise control.

5. It was a lot better driving into Palm Desert watching the temp go from 15 degrees to 30 to 50 to 70 rather than driving into Salt Lake with the temp going 70 to 30 to 11 to -5

6.Baker is still the worst place ever invented even at 2 in the A.M.

7. When I think no one can hear me I am pretty much the best singer ever! I pretty sure I was hitting all the right notes but Joe may say otherwise

I thought of a lot more things but writing and driving just isn't the easiest thing to do. Hope you had a good New Year!
