My Embarrassing Little Secret

A glimpse into the way my mind works (written how I think). Sad, isn't it?

I have kinda dropped the ball on writing this last week. I'd like to say that it was because I was studying or because I started training for the Avon Walk or trying to find a cure for world hunger, but that is not the case. I have had my head in the books (Twilight Saga & The Host). I am a major procrastinator. I should be studying now, but I have all my wonderful friends on Twitter & Facebook & the JJS boards to keep me busy. I even went for a walk today (anything to keep me from studying!!!!). I walked 1 1/4 miles today. Not great, but hell it's a start & it got my fat ass off the couch!

I am a person who obsesses over things so when I start a new book, I'm screwed because nothing else gets done. I watched the Twilight movie about a month ago & have been obsessed ever since. That there Robert Pattinson is just beautiful on one of those weird ways. Yes, I'm a 30 year old woman crushing on a 22 yr old boy. Sue me. Just don't tell anyone because, well, it's embarrassing!! Because of this new crush , though, I did find the books. Yes, my sister told me about them before (I LOVE vampire stuff!), but I didn't want to read a young adult book! These books were wonderful (I've now read them all twice) & I can't wait for the New Moon movie to come out in November! I've told my hubby that that is what I want to to for my birthday. Yes, I'm going to brave the millions of teenage girls at the movie theater opening weekend!

Yes, I'm still smoking & still need to quit. I think the walking will help me w/that because I need to breath.

I'm still working on getting my fundraising stuff out to you. I have some absolutely wonderful-smelling soaps, lotions, lip balms, & candles for you. I've got the knowledge of what I want to do, but not on HOW to do it. I'll be working on it (ok, with a little help from a friend)!

Is there something wrong with me? Yes. Yes, I think there is.

Peace & Love

Spring in the High Desert

I don't know if I've mentioned that I moved to the High Desert from Ontario. In Ontario (not really all that far from here), there are no definite seasons, & growing up there I never noticed or cared. I moved to the high desert in the beginning of fall. The trees were in full bloom with leaves & fruit, the roses blossomed & the grape vines had grapes (yes, I have grapevines). It started to cool down & I watched my leave-covered trees grow nekkid & my grapevines start to die (by all appearances).

As I have been watching (damn, I wish I had pics, but I'm just too damn lazy), I've been watching the leaves start to come back & flowers start to blossom again. My grapevines have come back from the dead (I don't know anything about grapevines & I assumed they were dead).

I have never realized how much I truly love seasons. It is a beautiful & amazing thing to watch. I have been busier than usual, but whenever I go outside, I always take a minute (or however long it takes me to smoke) to check out all the new happenings.

When I started working & they asked me about goals & the possibility of getting my dream home. I told them I have my dream home. Yes, it gets hotter than hell here in the summer, but it really is beautiful here.

Wow, I feel like an ad for the High Desert. Move here~where you can get actual seasons in sunny California!

Sorry, I just haven't heard this song in forever! Another thing that I didn't know I missed!

Peace & Love

Happy Friday Everyone!

Ok, so I haven't written since last Friday. Sorry, my daughter is on Spring Break, so I'm going to use that as my excuse.

A little update on my CK: I am a failure & for that I'd like to blame Eric (for buying more), coffee (for going so well w/a smoke), & beer (for the same reason as coffee). Yup, I'm gonna blame everyone, but myself (because it's just so much easier). I have cut back (some), but I'm still a-smokin.

I'm still workin on my fundraiser & I should be able to put my goodies up by the end of the month.

I finished my studying last week, woohoo! Now I just need to take the test for my license!

My daughter & I are driving each other nuts. Gotta love Spring Break! I'm gonna take her to the movies next week. It's hard because I'm used to having her in school all day & she's daddy's girl. I'm an ok mom, but definitely not #1.

Oh, before I forget: Happy Easter (or Passover or nothing, depending on what you celebrate)!!!

Peace & Love

Day One of a Cranky Kim

Ok, I'm not quite cranky yet. So far so good.

This is what I should send to the tobacco company:

To whom it may concern:

Due to the high prices of your product, I am now on my way to becoming a nonsmoker. I thank you greatly for the increase, as I was getting tired of hacking anyway. You are helping my husband quit, too, which is a wonderful thing. I fear though, that he will be your patron for a while longer still. While I think your product is wonderful with a beer, I'm afraid I just can't afford it on a daily basis. I will miss it with my morning coffee & will grow to hate you as my weight increases.

Thank you for all the good & bad years.
KD Cogley
(your soon to be ex-humble servant)

Peace & Love

It's a Girl!

I just got back from the hospital from seeing my best & oldest friend. She has a baby girl! I'm so happy for her!
Congratulations to Barbara & Chris on their new baby girl, Sophia Grace. I'm going back to the hospital tomorrow to see her & get some pics. As she's not my baby, I will not post pics here until they have put some out.

Peace & Love
