Lovely Weekend

What an awesome weekend we had. Friday night we had movie night. We rented Wild Hogs and ordered a pizza. It was a nice way to end a busy week. I bought my new bathing suit Saturday afternoon. I'll post a picture later. Saturday night, we went out to dinner with my mom, brother and his new wife. Then they came back to our house and played Guitar Hero until late at night. Then Saturday morning, we drove up to some spring fed lakes north of us to visit our friends' property. We started by picking blackberries until we couldn't pick any more. We then went to swim in the lake, flying down the slide into the cool water. Then we finished swimming in the beautiful pool in the resort area. After a picnic under the pine trees and hours in the sun, we went to another part of the lake where the boys took the little boat around the lake. We fished for a couple of hours and had fun watching the kids enjoy being outdoors. Our friends cooked a nice BBQ dinner for us and then we got on the road home. Monday we lounged around for a while and I stressed out about my algebra homework. I finally got it under control and then we headed over to my sisters for BBQ chicken and sausage. Yummy food and good company.

So I was thinking about something to get my husband for his birthday in November. I never get him anything original and as I was looking through his ma*im magazine, I came across a photo that sparked an idea. I would love to have a pin up style picture taken, dressed in garters and heels with an old 40's style hairdo. He would love it. No, I'm not a size 6 but a lot of the pin up girls had some junk in their trunk! Where would I go about having something like that done? Would you ever do it?

Why do I have such a hard time accepting a compliment? It's so weird....people will say something nice to me and I will say think you, but in the back of my mind I'm thinking that they must be lying or laughing at me for thinking they were being nice. For instance, I just got my hair highlighted with fairly light highlights. I've had probably 10 people tell me how much they love my hair but I can't help but think they must be saying it just to make me feel good. I see this as such a character flaw and I hate being like this. I want to be able to take a compliment and feel good about myself when people are nice to me about something. Why am I like this? I know I don't have the best self esteem but I didn't know I was this bad! I need to get a grip!

I went back to work yesterday after a week of sitting on the sofa. I can say that I am totally exhausted and really would love to stay home today. I haven't been sleeping well and am waking up with throbbing headaches. I'm so lucky to work with a bunch of nice ladies who will take it easy on me.

Still sick with pneumonia. I've been home from work all week and went back to the doctor this morning for a shot in the booty and an X-ray. He said everything looks good, but to continue the antibiotics. I'm considering going back to work tomorrow but I don't want to get too tired. I've been napping on and off all day for the past week so I am concerned that I'll get totally worn out. Maybe I'll stay home and just chill out through the weekend. I'll decide later...

I am so happy that my classes are over but I am starting a new one on Monday. I have to take College Algebra so I figured there's no less painful way to take it then a 9 week class over the summer. It's an online class, so I don't have to worry about leaving the kids with anyone while I'm in class. I'm now awaiting word on my application to a local state university. They have an online teaching program that is only for people who already work in the schools so it should be nice. The advisor already said that I qualify so, it's just a matter of getting all of the paperwork filled out. I hope I get accepted because that means I don't have to sit in class every night. I can do my classwork from home and that means being with my family!!

This weekend

We finally celebrated my brother's wedding this past weekend. It turned out so beautiful and we had a great time. The after party was a bunch of fun, too. I have to admit though, that I'm glad it's all over. It's been very time consuming and expensive.

On another note, I've been home for the past 2 days with pneumonia. I feel like crap. I hope this ends quickly. I'd love to feel back to normal!
