I Hate Being Sick...

So this week was almost completely a write off :(

Sunday night after updating my blog I noticed that I wasn't really hungry and that I had only eaten one meal that I cooked something and ate for the sake of eating. Normally on Sundays I spend the day scavenging for food around here because I can't stop eating. I also noticed that I was getting a bit achy...but thought nothing of it because I had went to the gym that morning. Anyways I went to bed and woke up Monday morning burning up with fever and just feeling shitty. Every movement made me break out into a sweat, I was super tired and just felt BLAH! I went to work for an hour and then came home and took a 4 hour nap...fever went away and I ate 1 meal that day, as I had zero appetite...went to bed Tuesday I woke up burning up with fever again, my throat was killing and still felt generally shitty. I got up and dragged myself into work, somehow survived the day then headed to the walk in to find out I had a lovely case of strep throat! The doctor's exact words were "Eww...that's nasty in have some septic tonsils going on!"...this was at about 6pm...I was given meds, instructed to take a whole days worth before going to bed and then start a regular med. schedule in the morning...finally started feeling better on Wednesday, and was back to my regular self by Thursday :)

I have never had strep so bad in my life...and I've had it millions of times! Its crazy how one night of meds can make all the difference in the world...but anyways thats why not much has happened this week. I feel like I'm not accomplishing much off my list, granted I only started a couple of weeks ago.

This weekend Mike and I are going to go up to Rattlesnake Point, go hiking and have a picnic. I'm looking forward to it :) This will knock two things off my list...38. Go on a hike through Rattlesnake Park and 93. Have a picnic in the Park. I might also try to talk him into catching a movie or two..or three at the Drive-In since it's the long weekend, which would be something else, but thats still up for discussion.

Anywaysssss....I'm off to get ready for the day, going to get my hair all nice and did ;)

This week....

So unfortunately I didn't get as much accomplished as I wanted to...but on the bright side...I started book #2 of the 50 I need to goal is to finish it this week, my next book will be Eat, Pray, Love...which will mark book #3 and also be a new author for two birds with one stone :)

Last weekend Mike and I went to a taping of Comedy Now! which is a comedy show played here on CTV. One of the comics is pretty well known in the industry, Glen Foster. He has made appearances on several tapings of Just For Laughs and Comedy Now! I guess that knocks off 37. See a famous stand-up comedian live. The show was hilarious...I was dying of laughter at some points. There were actually two comedians that hour was Glen Foster and the second hour was a new up and coming comedian. It is definitely something that we would do again :)

I also watched a few movies so I can knock a few off the alphabet too! This weekend I watched Did You Hear about the Morgans?, Planet 51, Mulligans and Inception.

Did You Hear About the Morgans
was pretty funny. It stars Sarah Jessica Parker and Hugh Grant...basically its about a couple who witness a murder and have to go into a witness protection program. It was free on TMN on Demand so I figured why not!?, as were the next two movies I watched...

Planet 51 is a cartoon about aliens...lots of famous people do the voices for the characters including Justin Long and Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock). Honestly it was had some funny moments and was pretty much a twist on the "aliens invading our planet" theme. Basically the movie is based on an alien planet "Planet 51" and an astronaut lands on the planet and the aliens believe that he is an alien who is there to take over their planet.

Mulligans was ok...not at all what I thought it was going to be about based on the description I read. I assumed it was going to be about friends (what I thought would be a guy and a girl) who fall in love with each other over the summer...but nope it was about two guys who spend the summer at one of the guy's family summer houses...the best friend admits that hes gay and then secretly has a fling with his best friend's father. The acting wasn't terrible for a B movie but meh the storyline was kind of boring.

Inception was awesome!! Mike and I went to a late viewing of the movie on Saturday night. The special affects and storyline were really good! It's pretty long (2.5 hours) but we weren't bored for a single minute of the movie....highly recommended if you haven't already seen it!

I have decided that for my scrapbook I am going to make a scrapbook for Mike and I over the's obviously not a scrapbook that I can finish before this challenge is done but it is something that will be well under way by that point. Before our anniversary next month I am going to pick up a scrapbook at Michaels and get started. I'll start with a couple of pages of us over the past few years, followed by an engagement page and finally one for our wedding. I will then do a page for our 1 year anniversary and any big life event following. I'm excited!! I have a bunch of scrapbooking stuff already, and now I have a plan so time to get started!

To address my last message...I sent my so called BFF a bbm message pretty much asking if we were ever going to get together for we've been talking about for the last couple of months....or if I should just give up...and the response pretty much says it all.....I haven't gotten a response yet! Oh well I guess...

Anyways...hopefully this week I can accomplish more off my list :) Cheers!

A Letter to You... the past year and a bit I seem to be losing my best friend...I'm not really sure whats happening, maybe it's just that we're growing apart, as our lives are very different...especially since she moved away. she is back and things are just well...awkward? lonely? I don't even know...but I miss the old us. Anyways...this is just kind of a rant/open letter to her...chances that I will ever send it are probably slim to none...but at least I wrote it!

Dear You,
We've been through a lot together in the last 9 years. We've gone from riding around in strange cars with boys we kind of knew to marrying strange boys we picked up at pub ;)....but...and theres always a but....things have changed between us. I miss the friendship we used to have. It feels like over the last year that I am losing It's easy to pretend that I don't care and that things will get better, because lets face it...with us, they usually do, but this time feels different. It doesn't feel like the other times this time, this time feels more permanent and although I really hope it isn't, I still have that nagging feeling. You have been back for a couple of months now and have only made the effort to see me twice and one of those times you barely said shit all to me all night long. I message you and ask you if you can let me know when you are free so that we can get together and you ignore my messages for a day or longer and then message me back, when I know you read them right away (that little 'R' in bbm means read btw). You tell me you will let me know days and times and NEVER do...or come up with these total last minute ideas and expect me to just come. I know that you make way more time for your other friends and yea I'll admit it...I'm jealous...what makes them more important than me? What do they do to make you commit to something when you can't commit to a fucking dinner or a drink with me? It drives me crazy...I hate being the only one of us who seems to tell me that you miss me, but then fail to do anything to strengthen this weakening friendship. I feel like you barely even know me have no idea what has gone on in my life since the wedding and it sucks...UGH...

This week I am going to make one last effort at getting together...I will initiate a get together...whether its dinner or a movie or whatever...heres hoping you take this opportunity to get to know me again...if not...then I guess its goodbye and goodluck

Your Broken Hearted Friend

This Weeks Tasks...

So this week I didn't accomplish a whole lot...I completed the 50 Questions to Free Your Mind Survey...but I'm going to aim higher this week. So far I am in the process of reading a new book...and I have 2 new authors lined up for one of my other tasks. I am also going to try a new recipe this week :) which I'm excited about....if any of you have any yummy recipes you want to share please leave them and I will give them a shot!

This week I think I will also put my cake decorating skills to use...I plan to make cupcakes for the girls at work (using cake decorating techniques), as one of the girls recently got engaged. Not sure what I'm going to do just yet...but should be fun! Along with this, I plan to bring my own lunch for the entire week...keep your fingers crossed that I can do it...I'm usually one of the first to cave when someone steps out for lunch.

Next month I plan to complete the no pop and no fast food for a month tasks...I've made it a competition with the girls I work with, we're all going to put some money into a jar and whoever lasts the entire month splits the money...I'm doing this for me to prove I can do this...but a little incentive never hurt anyone...right?

50 Questions to Open Your Mind... I thought I would tackle something on my list today and since hubby is busy watching FIFA I thought I would do the 50 Questions to Open Your Mind Survey that is on my here goes!!

1. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? hmmm...I feel like a 30 year old...but looking at me I would think I was maybe 20ish
2. Which is worse, failing or never trying? Never Trying
3. If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so
many things we don’t do?
because it's easier to do what we're used to then to venture out and try something new...and if people are anything like me...we're very good at procrastinating
4. When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
Most likely...I tend to say I am going to do things and then don't...hopefully this project will help me with that
5. What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world? Poverty
6. If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich? What I do now...working with children...they make me happy every day :)
7. Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing? a little bit of both...I love working with children and I know what I do helps build their foundation for later in life...but at the same time I'm sure there is more that I could be doing
8. If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently? hmm...I'd spend my time doing more that I love doing...have a house and kids by now too probably
9. To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken? I would say 75%ish
10. Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things? Doing the right things
11. You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire. They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend. The criticism is distasteful and unjustified. What do you do? I would stand up for the friend in some way...knowing me the other people still wouldn't stop, but I would at least say that I didn't agree with what they were saying...and if it got bad enough I would probably leave
12. If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be? you are loved
13. Would you break the law to save a loved one? If it was a matter of life and death, YES
14. Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity? yes
15. What’s something you know you do differently than most people? the way I eat...I don't like when things touch on the plate...yuck!
16) How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy? because not everyone feels the same way about the same things I do
17. What one thing have you not done that you really want to do? What’s holding you back? buy a house...mostly money is holding us back...but we'll have our own house one day
18. Are you holding onto something you need to let go of? I'm going to say yes...I have a tendency to do that...I always feel like I need to hold onto things in order to keep the memories and feelings intact...even though deep down I know that's not true.
19. If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why? Out East is so much quieter there
20. Do you push the elevator button more than once? Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster? sometimes..I know it doesn't make it come any faster but I can be impatient

25. What are you most grateful for? Being alive

33. If you haven’t achieved it yet, what do you have to lose? that feeling of triumph...that you were actually able to do it...even when people tell you you can't
34. Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever? Yes
35. Why do religions that support love cause so many wars? lots of, politics, greed...the list goes on and on...

And it begins...

I'm totally notorious for starting blogs and abandoning them shortly thereafter. In the last year I have probably started 3 or 4 blogs, but I'm hoping that this one will actually inspire me to keep this one open and up to date.

This blog has been started because of something called the Day Zero Project. Basically the goal of this project is to create a list of 101 tasks that you want to complete and you are given 1001 days to do it in. Over the next couple of days I am going to put my list together and get started :) I'm actually pretty excited to get started on this...hopefully I will be able to keep this up and not drop it as soon as I'm bored of it.

So the list is up...

Start Date: July 11, 2010....lets begin!!
