My second week on MyNetDiary was a fail! I stopped logging about Wednesday-ish again. The kids started back to school on Wednesday and we had Back to School night and a stake swimming party. Friday night my friend Kari and I drove up to Logan to pick up our packets for the Top of Utah Half Marathon. Well, we’re marathon drop-outs. We gave our two bibs to two of her friends who actually wanted to do the race, were trained up for the race, and weren’t able to sign up in time. I’d rather give my bib to someone who is ready and excited about a race, than do a race begrudgingly and only out of obligation. But we already booked and paid for our hotel room so instead we had a mini-friend-cation. Saturday we got massages, a pedicure, and went shopping. On our way home we ate our mutual favorite restaurant, Maddox. Oh yummy corn pones. It was relaxing and fun and just the rejuvenation I needed. I laughed so hard my sides ached afterwards.
Today is a feminist holiday for me. Ninety years ago today the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was ratified giving women the right to vote. It blows my mind that less than 100 years ago women were someone’s property. Women did not have the right to vote and hold office. Women were not people! I can’t even understand this.
I could seriously just dedicate an entire blog to funny things that my 6 year old son says or does. He is hilarious. Unintentionally hilarious. All the adults in the neighborhood think he’s the smartest and funniest kid they know.
Thank you for showing me that women with my body type, fair skin, and women with curves like me are beautiful. Because I’ve been told all my life that my Marilyn Monroe-esque body type wasn’t as beautiful as Kate Moss’ waifish silhouette. It makes me happy to realize I don’t need to be a size 0 with big fakies, tanned leather skin, and sucked out fat to know that I am beautiful.
Last year my friend Kari talked me into doing the Ogden Half Marathon. This year she’s trying to talk me out of doing the Top of Utah Half Marathon.
For the first part of this week I was plagued by yet another kidney infection. The latter half of the week I was on vacation up at Bear Lake. Therefore I paid no attention to MyNetDiary. I was caring more about not throwing up the food I just ate after taking Lortab, to combat the intense pain of a kidney infection, than counting calories. And I was enjoying the beautiful turquoise blue waters of Bear Lake too much to be bothered with my iPod other than to listen to music.
