Hodge Podge

Hello!! Today is a fantastic day! You know how I know?? I put my mind to it! Once you get it in your head — nothing can get in your way!

No, but really the moment I knew it was going to be a tip-top day was when I woke up at 6 am to my phone ringing. In my dazed, sleepy state I thought it was my alarm and immediately got angry. When I actually looked at my phone though – it was something else entirely. It was the same number the mister called from on Saturday. Could it be???? YES. We talked for over 15 minutes this morning while I was still snuggling in bed. It was the absolute perfect way to start the day 🙂

We chatted about how our past few days have been and how he’s adjusting to life far, far away. We also mentioned moving out of apartment pretty soon after he gets home. A friend of his from work is selling his house, and we’re thinking it might be the perfect starter home 🙂 Of course we won’t be able to do anything about this until he gets home — so we’ll see. A girl can dream though, that’s for dang sure.

Besides that the rest of the day has been pretty normal.

Work was… well, work.

Fitness Updates

Since Alex left, I’ve started to do my daily work outs during my lunch hour. I would feel extremely guilty leaving Hunter so early in the morning and making him wait to go to the bathroom after I leave in the AM until after 6 pm. I’ve been getting up a little later and taking Hunter on a nice long morning walk. We’ve had time to play every morning and to be honest — I really enjoy it!

It was nice being able to work out in the morning and have it out of the way before most people were even awake. I felt energized in the morning and that was something I really loved! I know I would feel guilty though. I would feel as though I was saying, “my work out is more important than Hunter sitting in his crate for over 12 hours.” I have too much love for that little guy to let him be bored for even longer than necessary. My work outs are much shorter and I typically don’t fit everything in — but that’s the price I’m willing to pay!


Normally when the mister is off gallivanting around the globe, I start watching old TV shows that I never watched back in their hay day. Some shows I’ve fallen in love with (after everyone else did) include Dexter and Lost. I’m currently on the hunt for old shows that have multiple seasons to watch from the beginning.

What are your suggestions???

Significant Other Songs

Are there certain songs that no matter what, you think of your significant other during? I’m sure they’re all love songs! Are there any songs that remind you of their personality? I love when I’m in the car and one of these songs comes on! They instantly make me smile and have been known to even bring a tear to my eye (or 2 or 10).  What are these songs for you??

Here’s a couple of mine!

and this, and this, and oh — this one too!

 Other News

We had to put our cat Max to sleep yesterday evening. We’re all pretty upset about it, but we know he’s not in pain anymore. He was with us for 18 years so it’ll definitely take some time to adjust to life without the old man. He was the only cat that would stand up to Hunter when we visited my moms house, so it’ll be interesting to see if any other cat will take his alpha role. He’ll definitely be missed 😦

I’m still sick. My brother is sick too. My wonderful Momma decided we all needed her cold too. (I guess she thought we were jealous or something, I don’t know 😉 ) Hopefully I’ll be back on my feet in no time!

Here’s a couple pictures to leave you with. I hope you have a great night!

  1. Yay for starting the day off in a super way! Hopefully you will get more calls (an ex of mine was in the military and I know all too well how happy those calls make you feel)

    I am sure Hunter loves the long walks in the morning. When I lived further away from work, it killed me to be away for so long but thank god my commute is shorter now. I can wake up later, make breakfast at home and take Lincoln out for a nice early AM cardio session!!

    Dexter and Lost are two of my favorite shows–how about CSI, 24 or Alias?
