I haven't had the motivation to write lately. I am thinking about moving all my posts from here to my LJ. There really is no sense in having two blogs. At least there I can write how I really feel about things and not just have on the surface fluff posts. The problem is finding the time to move them over one by one.

Things have been very busy here. I have also dove back into my reading obsession. I had to get away from it years ago because I tend to stay up late reading or get nothing done in the day when I can't put a book down. I thought I had it under control but am back to being ridiculous. Tina brought me the first 3 Twilight books on Thursday night. When she stopped by yesterday afternoon to give me the 4th, I was already half way through the third book. I find myself up until 3am most nights. It makes my days much harder with so much going on every day. In the last 3 weeks I have read Wicked, Son of a Witch, Harry Potter Half Blood Prince, and Harry Potter Deathly Hollows, along with the Twilight series.

We joined Pro Health and Fitness and have been loving it! It was really tough for me at first, but am building strength and stamina. The gym is amazing! I have never seen a place that nice in this area. Each cardio machine, and there are endless rows of them, has it's own personal tv. I was on a machine... not sure what it's called... it's like a elliptical, but does stairs, walk and run cycles. I looked over as Meg was getting on the one next to me and said... I freakin hate this machine! The guy on the other side of me was laughing. Then he made fun of me for listening to my MP3 while I "read" my soap opera on the TV with closed caption. lol Hey, I can do both! Me and Meg love going in the hot tub afterward, and the steam room with eucalyptus has really helped my f'ed up lungs. Sometimes we go in the pool to goof off, but I really want to catch a water aerobics class soon. I can really see a difference in Zack. It's like he grew another few inches and his arms and shoulders are spreading wider. I need to try to go more nights when he goes for some Zack and mom time, but he meets friends there and has a good time with them.

Things are going really well for me despite the serious lack of money. But I can't complain. Life is good. :)
