Weigh In

Things have been pretty busy with midterms right around the corner. But other then that of all of school. Stephen and I have been to our hometown once since we moved here. Its strange going back to our family homes and knowing that we don't live there. Even hung out with a view friend that weekend. My nephew Dallas broke his leg in his first soccer game so Stephen and I made sure to stop by my sisters to give him a card and to see him. He will be in a full leg for four weeks and a half cast for four weeks. But we are really lucky that it never hit his growth plate.
The past weekend we went to my sister Christy's house to spend the time with my sister and her family. She announced that she was eighteen weeks along. Also I got to spend time with them and it was a whole lot of fun. I will have sixteen nieces and nephews which is totally cool.
So as you know I have been trying to lose weight. Well, I made myself some goals that I wanted to make. One of them was to be at 220 by today. Well I didn't make that goal but I am not too dispointed I guess. I am at 221.6 which in truth is pretty cool, I am pretty happy to be even this far.
Well I need some sleep before school tomorrow and to cuddle with my husband. Night.

Dear Arthritis

Now I understand that you are apart of me. But we are having problems, problems that I can't afford to let slide anymore. You are starting to take over my life. Yes, I understand that you have been with me since birth. And I understand that you stayed silent for eleven years. But I need my life and need my future. I need you to step back once and awhile and let me walk next to my husband without feeling your presence in my lower joints. I need you to let me sit in a chair without the fear that my knee will slip out. I want to be able to take notes and know that i can keep up with my professors. Can you give me one day once in awhile? I want the little things like getting quarters out of a vending machine. Is that so much. Arthritis, at night I cry myself to sleep knowing that every day you get worse. The meds to make you slow down effecting my joints would cause me not to have children. I want to be a mother, no thats not right. I feel the need to be a mother. And yet you are destorying that little by little.
Arthritis, we can live together in harmony if you would let me have a day once and awhile. Soon I will lose weight to slow you down and right now I am not feeling guilty.

Labor Day Weekend

So this weekend was very nice. On Friday my sister Necia and her family came over and brought us a love seat which we are both very greatful to have. Because we only had two chairs. We relaxed with them and talked while my niece Maddison drew us pictures and while my nephew Dallas looked at the video games. Dallas and Maddison were selling things for school which we decided to buy something from each to make it fair.
On Saturday, Stephen and I invited our friends Katelyn and Darren over for dinner and video games. They came over and we enjoyed their company. We had a lot of fun playing Mario Party 8 which Darren won. Stephen and I both said that we would have to invite them over more.
On Sunday we had a relaxing day and got things done around the house. On Monday, we spent the morning cleaning the apartment then Sam and Wolfgang came over to just hang out. Sam fixed my eyebrows she did them when we were roommates two years ago. The guys talked and got to know each other more. Another friend came over who lives kiddie corner from Stephen and I. Us girls made chocolate chip cookies and the guys moved on talking about Magic The Gatherering Cards. We then played a round of Mario Party 8 and soon they left. After they left I finished homework that was due Tuesday. I then did thirty minutes on the wii fit. Afterwards I got on one of my favorite websites which is called sparkspeople and logged all my excersing and logged my food for the day. Even after the chocolate chip cookies I still stayed below my calories. Yet today I weighed myself and I am still gaining weight. *sigh* But my goal is following the plan more on the website and work my butt off on getting weight off.
Today, I brought lunch to school to make sure that I can lose weight. Plus, I usually come home for lunch but Stephen started his job today and we only have one key. I get out of class after he gets off work. I need to change my lifestyle to make it work. Because I want to be healthy by my next birthday. So tomorrow I am turning twenty two years old. Last year I used to joke about that I wanted to be married on my twenty-second birthday because it's 09/09/09 then I have my first kid on 10/10/10 and so on so forth. Of course some people actually thought i was telling the truth when I was joking. Because at this time I wasn't dating anyone and I was still very hooked on Stephen. Sure enough Sarah's all mighty prediction that she made in Summer 2008 was this, "Kendra you will get married next summer." came true. I started to date Stephen on October 4th, and was engaged to him on March 6th, then married to him on July 11th. To tell the truth I wouldn't want it any other way. So the rest of the joke won't happen at least hopefully it won't. But people were all surpise the reason. Sure I would love to be a mother but not right now, not while I am still in school trying I mean trying to finish schooling.
Anyways, there is no plans for my birthday which is fine. We don't have the money at the moment anyways. Which also means that this weekend we are staying home the going to our hometown for the festivities of Old Settler's or going to our hometown to watch my sister-in-law Jojo's boyfriend Karl open his mission papers to see where he is going for two years also to celebrate his birthday. Sometimes it stinks in being in a different town from the family.
Though we do get things done and I focus on school it can seem like the same old same old. Though when friends do come over we get the enjoyment of entertaining friends. Like I have an idea of having a wii bowling tournment. Where we have people come over to play wii bowling and eat what is at a normal bowling alley would have. I think it would be a lot of fun and it would be cheeper then going to the bowling alley.
Classes are going good it seems that I have the handle on Survey and Econ. But my test results in Field and Lab will tell me if I need to study my butt off for it. The results should be tomorrow but I rather not know. I rather not know my grade on my birthday. So Stephen gave me the idea to not look at it until the tenth. So that's the plan. This is one reason why I like my birthdays on the weekends.
I have been working on figuring out the plot outlines for my novel. But if you want to read more of my novel and all the plans then you can follow it on my other blog. Well I think I kept you long enough. I must get some things done.

Until Then,

Future plans

So I was helping someone find a topic to write for their blog. When I told them of an idea. That was to write a letter to their son right now. About what they have been doing and everything they wanted him to know about him and how them (parents) feel about him. She did and she did a great job. So I told her of my idea when I do become a parent. I want to give each of my kids a book when they leave my house to go live on their own. In that book will be letters from me from the day that I found out I was pregnant to the day that I want to stop writing letters. I want to be able to write about how much of a gift they were in my life. I want them to see how I saw them growing up because it will be different. I want them to realize how much I loved them. I have plans to write through out the pregnancy. Then I'll write about the first time I met them. Then little moments that make life special. Their first word, their first walk, their first sleep-over. I want to be able to write about it all in my point of view as a mother. Then when they are feeling like no one loves them or cares about them. They can take the book out and read about someone who does care and love them. When I told Stephen of my idea he just gave me a look. I am a writer and that is how I want to share my gift with our kids.
In other words. School is going pretty well. In my Econ. class i got a 88% on a quiz and was very proud of it. I also found out this week that I have to write a whole novel by the end of the semister...oh dear. Also I had my first exam for my Field and Lab Biology class...didn't feel like I did good.
