like a lightbulb in a dark room
I wore a dress today for no reason. I never left the house. I barely left my room. 
But here it is. 
The dress. 
I bought this dress so long ago. This is the second time I’ve actually worn it. 
I think I’m going to trade it with my friend and get a pair of pants I like… its awesome having a friend who is the same height and size in just about everything. Except her biceps. 

Now if I could just be as built as she is…

Last night at Scramblers Team

Turned into how the moon was created, and what killed the dinosaurs.

Tough class.. I didn’t study for that test.

Measuring Tape Mantra (Sticker)
Good Game (in Victoria's Secret)
Me: I'd like to be measured today.
Staff: OK that's great, let me grab my measuring tape.
Me: *moves hair*
Staff: *looks at tape around chest* I've got you at a 32 band with a B cup.
Me: *looks sceptical*
Staff: What size are you wearing right now?
Me: 32DDD...
Staff: Oh...

Time to practice my early morning rising before school starts

I want to swim & run before my morning classes…

Also I want to do a snapchat version on the entire song ‘When will my life begin’ from Tangled. (see title) 

Message me for snapchat. I’m less interesting there than here.

Well the morning started with a 20person party No-Show. So for two hours I hung out with my coworkers and even helped one practice lead climbing for a while. 
Then I went home thinking ‘I’m off early I bet I can get a bike in before I have to babysit’. Nope, dad was thrilled I was home early. Instead I took the girl out to lunch at BJs Brewhouse & then we walked around the shopping center and window shopped. The candy store was less window shopping (cost more than our lunch actually).
When we got home around 3 again I thought I might get a bike in, seeing as dad said he’d be home around 2. Again that was dashed. Dad got home shortly before sundown and I don’t ride at night.

Tomorrow is supposedly truly all my own. As will be Sunday & Monday.
Tomorrow I will bike then perhaps sleep with Steve. Sunday I will attempt my favorite running trail. Monday I’m going into DC to visit some less common museums & art galleries with my friend. 

Then its back home on Tuesday to watch the kids again. Tell you what, want your kids to keep up with birth control? This is a great way to do it. 
I’m going back to school for elementary education & special needs, but I’all be keeping my birth control up to date for sure.

Picture is of crayons from lunch. I really liked the shape & how they handled. I thought it was pretty cool.

no text

I typed it all out. I put it in word, then I deleted it. Some things are too personal. Others are really too small to be upset about. 

Last day of summer camps for me tomorrow. Then I have a large party of climbers for a few hours on Friday morning & I should be free of most obligations till he next week. 

Tomorrow will be better.

Here’s a selfie from Oklahoma to accompany the HUGE text post I’m about to load you with. 
Ignore it. I’ll post more pictures soon.

Caught this stag beetle this morning with my little sister & we looked it up online to find out more about it. Good way to start the day.

Dad & I went out to test drive cars. I know what I want, but its more about what we can afford right now. While I am excited for the days results, dad has changed his mind so many times over the past few months on what we were going to do I hesitate to really say anything is settled. But my fingers are crossed.

Then I took the lil one to the pool for a few hours, we ordered a pizza and had it delivered to the pool, ate, then kept swimming. 
Something a little off happened at the pool but its for another post.

Home, some organizing, and prep for a week of short but strenuous shifts of herding children at the gym. Little one will have to come with me to work since dad will be in meetings & brother will be in driving school.

I also got two new cookbooks and I’m pretty excited to try them out. 

Tomorrow is my birthday, I have no plans. If I feel well enough I may try to ride my bike or go for a run after work. Birthdays aren’t really a big deal after 18 I have found… even my 21st was pretty dull in comparison to most.
(My family & I went to a really nice Brazilian steakhouse, but I left my ID at home so couldn’t drink, spent the morning belaying my siblings & then the night in a hotel with my mom.)
 This will be another quiet birthday. Maybe I’ll take a book out to the woods, maybe call my mum & interrupt her conversation with Melinda Gates. (She’s speaking at a conference in Nashville!! Its so cool!!)

Anyway that’s today. Hope you had a nice one.

This pic is from Oklahoma.
I gained a lot of weight out there from overeating and not eating correctly. 
I didn’t care then but I care now. Can’t wait for the round of antibiotics to end and let me get back out on my bike & on the trails… 

School starts Aug 20th, so I want to be in full form before that. Class schedule is great, midmorning classes I can swim before, and afternoons are free for homework and activities. Here’s to second attempts!

Awesome hike with my little sister. I’m very sick, but she keeps its slow enough that I’m not dying.

Let’s fill up the bird feeder & read our books on the patio.

Well other than the storms all day keeping us indoors, this would prevent us from filling the bird feeder. 

I’m torn between ‘move the EFF out’ and ‘let nature pass, they will hatch and be gone in a bit.’ Plus maybe its a great time to learn the life cycle of these hellish things. The more you know about it the less afraid you will be, theoretically…

Email to my boss & manager

Subject: Sick

I’ve been on antibiotics since Monday night but I sound like someone recently dug me out of my shallow roadside grave. I doubt anyone wants me near their kids right now.

If I haven’t coughed the dirt from my lungs by tomorrow night I’ll be going back to the doc on Friday so I should still be good for next week. 
Sorry for the inconvenience.
