Couple a things

First, I have decided to begin an exercise routine.  I wish I had a bike because I love to bike ride. So I will have to just exercise in my room.  I have some Shape magazines and I'll find a routine in on of those that I like and I can handle to start out with. And I might start walking the track at the high school where I work.  Can't walk my neighborhood because there are way too many stray dogs running the streets.  Plus I can do the stairs there too.  I've already cut back on sugars and snacks.

Next, I am reading Stephen King's new book 11/22/63.  That book is absolutely goliath and it sat on my shelf for approximately three months because I was intimidated by it's size.  But I have started it and now I cannot put it down.  It is so good.  It's about a man who finds a portal to the past and is planning to try and stop the assassination of JFK.  That's all I'm gonna say about that except that I'm hooked line and sinker.  Ha!  I just copied this excerpt of my journal to Facebook. :)  Cause I'm cool like that.

That is all.  I got nothin else.

Football, Isaac, and a Family Reunion

Jacob has decided to stick it out with football.  With a lot of prodding.  I think he is really starting to enjoy it though we have had some bad weather this week here in central FL and he had to practice in the rain.  I am also concerned about his schedule at school.  They gave him advanced band and he has never taken band before.  So yeah.  I probably should call the school and let them know he needs a schedule change before he fails. He has an eye doctor appt at the end of the month.  The physician said he is 100 in his left eye and 20 in his right?  

In other news, I'm so sick and tired of hearing about the RNC here in Tampa that I hope Isaac blows the top off. (But not actually hurt anyone if possible)  :)

My first two weeks back to work at the high school are almost over.  It has been busy and frustrating to say the least but I have almost made it and feeling good about it.  

Last weekend I did a small family reunion for my cousin and her kids at the park as they haven't seen each other in over 6 years.  It was really nice to get them all together and see them happy.  I helped my cousin raise her kids and I feel like they are mine too.  They have grown!

My cousin is the blond in the very center.  These are all her kids and grandkids except my son in the back who snuck in the picture without me noticing. lol  He has a little kids on his shoulder.  Some of these babies are just meeting each other for the first time.  It was really sweet.

Headache all day.  Not sure if It's allergies or the lack of caffeine. I over analyze everything.

My son had his first football practice today.  He walked off the field after an hour and a half and refuses to go back.  I'll make him stick it out for as long as I can though.  He needs to give it a chance before he quits.
