It's a Blond Thing...

Well I had some time to re-evaluate myself during my vacation. I'm trying to work out more, take care of myself, etc.. I had my hair dyed red in like October. I decided to go back to my natural color. Although, really, I don't know what my natural color is...

So anyway, I had my hair colored back to my normal color, which is a mixture of blond, brown, and red. All of my peeps at work are liking it. Although some of the obnoxious ones are commenting about the various colors. So I'm going to post some before and after pictures.

Ryka Iron Girl 5K in Solana Beach, California

Monique and I are amateur runners. We've been trying to do these 5K's lately. She is a much better runner than moi. I used to be a better runner, well, when I was less fat. I started doing alot of 5K runs in 2002 and 2003. Then small child came along and I got super super lazy. Monique said I was the one who got her started doing these runs. Well it's 2007, and she's still running.

I guess that motivates me a little. Soo anyway, we got up at the crack of dawn and drove to Solana Beach. Where is Solana Beach? I've never been there? It's at the most northern part of San Diego, south of Encinitas. It's a quaint little town, and ohh soo pretty.

The race was really organized. We got lots of cool stuff.

It started getting really hot and humid though. I made it through though. I can't wait to do the next one. We might go to an Iron Girl in Arizona in December. I need to work out my work schedule, etc.

I haven't had much time to post lately. I mean, I have lots of good thoughts, but I've been extremely lazy. I was on vacation from work, for 3 loooong weeks. Lots of time spent bonding with small child and the family. We didn't do much but I got lots of e-baying done. My totes are almost empty and I made a little over $500. Not too bad. Of course, I've spent the money already. If anyone knows me well enough, the know that I have a minor shopping addiction.

Most of my time has been spent chasing my child around lately. He has a really bad habit of stripping down naked and peeing on our wood floors. He's trying to potty train himself, but just doesn't realize when it's time to go. Sometimes, I actually like diapers. They keep the pee pee and poo poo off our expensive distressed hardwood floors.

I've been trying to update myself on all my internet forums and blogs this week. I do alot of my posting when I'm at work. Shhhhhh!!! Don't tell my bosses...

I really need a new myspace layout for myself. I want something cute and girly, but not too girly. I can't stand butterflies and flowers, and that kind of shit. Do they have an angry white woman, who is kinda punk, yet totally trendy, and snobby theme? Please lead me to that theme if you can find it.

I did a 5K run yesterday. I will have to post all about it in my next blogger post.. We had a great time!!

OC Mommies at the Chick!!!

So I dragged my expensively dressed child out to the local Chick-Fil-A today for some lunch. They have this totally cool play area for toddlers that the kiddo loves. He runs around like a crazy man. I met my friend, Stacey, and her daughter, Stella there too. This is the second time we've been to the place.

So the kiddos are playing happily.....and then....they show up..The kids that are way too big for the TODDLER area. Those 5,6, 7 year olds. The ones that won't take their shoes off. That are really rough...

So within ten minutes, Stella is being pushed and my kid's finger is bleeding..

What are the parents of the other kids doing? Sitting in the main dining room, eating their food, chatting away, and IGNORING their bratty kids..

What Happens Next? Stacey and I are the referees of the play place. We are trying to watch our kids and theirs too. Making sure our kids don't get hurt from these brats. Do the mom's pay attention to their kids? Nooo. One mom pops in for like 1 second, yells something at her daughter, then mentions something to me, "Oh they have siblings, etc.." Then leaves....

Another 1 to 2 mommies meet up with the other mommies... They send in their kids to the play place too. Finally, Stacey grabs Stella, who is screaming... Then I throw Angry Toddler under my armpit and we leave out the door.

So much for having my kid play....get really tired, and then take a really long nap..

So basically, these mommies ruined my nap time!!! I take a nap, rest, do stuff, etc. while small child is napping.....

Damn OC Mommies!!
