Today after work me and some friends are going on the river trip. I can't wait. The only thing that sucks is that I didn't meet my original goal. :( I'm a little sad about that. If I had only stuck to it harder I would have reached it. Well, I guess the next goal I will have to make. But, I did accomplish my revised goal was making it to the 260's. I weighed this morning and the scale said: 268. So I am happy about that a little. Anyways, a tidbit about my dad. He had to have this thing permanetly put in him for dialysis. So now he needs a kidney transplant. That kinda sucks but he is hanging in there. The medicine they have him on is making him crazy. When I was visiting him on Tuesday, he asked where my mom was and I told him at home he said Where the hell did I think we were. lol I said the hospital and he said we are a long damn way from the hospital. Well I guess if he wants to think he is somewhere other than the hospital I guess home is the best place. :) I also ran into my debate teacher from high school she said she almost didn't recognize me. She was like lookin good. It makes me feel kinda weird when people say that. Because in my eyes and when I look at myself in the mirror I don't feel like I have changed. I mean I can see it in my clothes but I just don't see it when I look at myself. Is that weird or is it just me? Has anyone else ever felt that way?

Well, today is Friday yay. So, glad this week is over. Next weekend is the river trip super excited for it.:) And, my dad is doing well. He is suppossed to start physical therapy today. I am happy about that. And tonight we are going to see the new twilight. Can't wait to see what happens. Well that's it for today sorry short post gotta get back to work so that I can leave early. Hope everyone has a safe and fun 4th. Oh BYOC

1. Seeing that it’s a patriotic holiday of sorts I thought of this one: Where were you on September 11th?

• I was at school and it was my sophmore year in biology. And, when we got the new our teacher was panicing because I believe it was her dad or someone like that who was there and she didn't know if he was in there when it happened. Well thankfully he wasn't. So that was good news for her.

2. What is your idea of fun? If given the chance to skip work/life for an entire day, what would you do? (assume you’d be by yourself)

• My idea of fun is yes sleeping late and hanging with friends.

3. Suggestion from a follower. Some blog questions.

How many blogs do you follow? I'm not sure

Do you read them all or just your faves? I read what I can. I get on here mainly at work.

Do you comment a little, a lot, on all? I am not really a commenter but I do read.

Have you ever unfollowed someone because of something they said or you didn’t like their blog? No I am a pretty neutral person I feel if you live your life the way you do I can't say anything about that. Jess hates this about me sometimes. lol

Do you routinely unfollow and why? Not unless they quit posting.

4. Repeat question. Pick one day and one healthy thing you’ll do for just that day next week.

Well I will do the whole week next week until Friday. I will be good and not eat anything that is bad or a carb. Gotta be really good till the weekend. Then it is getting blown up at the river.

5. Repeat "Make someone a superstar" question. Whose blog or blog comment stuck with you this week and why?

I would have to say Drazil. She always has wonderful comments to leave. and so does everyone else who commented about my dad. That was really helpful to me.

Thursday. Thursday how I loathe that you aren't Friday. haha

So, I didn't mention yet that me and Jess got tats on Friday. Yep, I'm addicted. lol. I have to get one any time I go to the tattoo parlor. :) We went to the tattoo shop for my brother John to get his frist tattoo ever. It is of Speed Gonzales as the devil for our dad. Our dad has a tattoo on each of his forearms one of speedy and one over the devil. So my brother jsut combined them. It was a nice thing to do and a good choice for your first tat. Me and Jess got a matching tat of a latin phrase that means a friend is another self. And, she suggested that we get our zodiac signs with them so we did. It hurt close to the top of the sign when the guy started hitting bone but when he did the words I was cracking up laughing. It was tickling so bad. Jess was in pain it was funny too her facial expressions. They ended up being really good and it is almost healed. Well nothing really much to say today on and now I am 271 even. yay!!!

Oh, and had to add a lil bout TRUE BLOOD. OMG!!! The episode Sunday night. That is all I can say about it. OMG!!!! That was a whopper. LOL I can't wait to see what happens next. Oh and Alcide is hottttt!!! And, Eric just gets hotter and hotter!!!
Until Later, TATA

Firstly, just wanted to thank everyone for their love and support. It means alot to me. So, my dad is doing good right now. They have woke him up but he still has the tube down his throat to breath and a little touch of pnemonia... But he is lookin good. They also have him tied dow so he doesn't pull the tube out. They are supposed to take the tube out today. So crossing my finger. Now onto my annoyance.... They are making me and my sister and brothers take a class for six weeks every tuesday night about how to take care of my dad when he comes home for a month we gotta take care of him. Now the annoying part. We have to drive all the way to the hospital pay for parking which is like 12 dollars every time to be given a packet and then having the packet read to us. OK I know how to read and I am not stupid so. It is a total waste of time. But luckily the class ended early so that was good.
Now, for some weight news I am now 271.2 I decided since I'm not going to meet my goal by next week so I made a new one. To be in the 260's by then. I hope I can meet that small goal. I am very disappointed in myself though for not loosing the weight when I know that if I would have just tried harder I could have done it. Well guess I will do it as good as possible for the next goal I make and here are some pics.
Me, Jess, and a friend Steven... Partying for Jess b-day...

OK, so for the people who have been wondering where the hell I have been. Sorry, not going to be a long post just trying to touch base. My dad went into the hospital on Thursday last week the 10th. And they said that his heart was failing and they were either going to get a heart transplant or a LVAD. Then I had a nervous break down cause all I could think when my mom told me that was about Denny off of Grey's Anatomy. So... Then I went up there on Sunday and saw him and he didn't look good. Then me and Jess went up there on Monday and he looked the same. I had a dr appointment on Tuesday and got a fill then headed to the hospital and I heard the dr in there so I waited in the waiting room for an hour. When I got in there my mom said they had something to tell me that I wasn't going to like. Well mom said that all of his organs were shutting down and they had to do something where they put a balloon in his heart and if that didn't work then he was just going to come home and basically die. There is no easy way to put that. Well then I got real upset because he promised me that he would be here to walk me down the aisle and see my first kid being born and since I have no intension of either then he would be around for a while. So that really upsetted me. I know that ain't a work but whatever. So they did that surgery and it has really improved his functions. So his surgery is scheduled for Monday there is only a 50 percent chance that he will make it through it and we are all hoping for the best. My brother and sis-n-law were even flown in from England cause he is in the Air Force for two weeks of emergency family leave. So that has really helped my mom... I will keep updated when I possibly can.

OK. I have been absent lately cause I just feel down. I can't believe for the second week in a row that I have only lost .6 pounds. It is really getting to me.. Now I have to loose 6 pounds a week to reach my goal weight. This is really getting under my skin.
Oh not to mention the wreck that I got into yesterday. This girl ran into the side of my truck with her bug and dented in my real driver side door. Thanks!!!! Jess was with me and she was hot about it. I was just like really someone just hit me. Then when Jess was talking to her she said she had fallen asleep that is why she hit me. Again, Thanks... Now my truck has depreicated in value..... UGH!!! So, that didn't help my mood either.
Back to the weight. I went ahead and made another appointment to get a fill. So hopefully that will change something.
Saturday we went tubing and I actually could tell a difference in my upper body strength. That was awesome...
Here are some recent pics.
Me and Jess with our margaritas!!

My nephew Anthony who just graduated. I'm so proud of him.

And, this is me tubing Yay!!!

Me and Cayla at the beach Memorial day weekend.

OH and last but not lease True Blood Season 3 teaser poster 11: This weekend is the premier cant wait...:)

BYOC & My small NSV

BYOC - here we go again! A couple of questions to get to know each other better. Copy and paste into your own blog if you want to play!

1. If you could be a flower, which one would it be and why?
It would have to be my all time favorite flower: a hyacinth. Because they are so pretty and colorful and smell good.

2. Which Sex and The City Character do you most relate to? (Thanks Jenny)

I would have to say Samantha... yea she sleeps around a bit but she is outgoing and funny and knows what she wants and gets it. Oh, and she says what she thinks. I love it when the girls are talking about coloring and Samantha says she wants to color with every crayon in the box. LOL loved it.

3. If you had a crystal ball or could know one thing about the future - what would it be?

I would have to say what would be the outcome of the weight loss. What will I look like when I get to whatever I determine as my goal.

4. What's your biggest fear in your weight loss journey?

That when I get to my not determined goal yet that I won't like how I look and think I looked better bigger.

5. Repeat question: Whose blog or comment spoke to you the most this week and why?

It was Drazil's blog this week. I hear ya girl about the heat. I am about to start running in the morning and then going to the gym after work starting tuesday.

I just figured it out that I have to loose about 5 pounds a week till the river trip to reach my goal. Let me repeat that 5 pounds. I can't believe it. I thought that this would be easier to get the that goal by the river. It is already discouraging me that I feel like I'm not going to be able to make it. I am gonna try my hardest though to do it. I haven't given up the goal yet. Now ask me at the end of next week and see if my story has changed. :) Onto my NSV.So, got my bathing suit in today and tried it on in the bathroom and it fit. It was a lil snug but it fit. I am going to be trying to make that look better too by the river. So, only lost .6 pounds this week I really gotta step up my game.

Until Later TATA.
