Gym Ettiquette

Hello Boys & Girls! It's been a while.  As you can see I had a hard time keeping up with my 365 blog.  It's not that I didn't take the pictures...Because believe me I did.  I just had a hard time keeping up with posting them.  To make matters worse, when trying to catch up on my blog I discovered that I had DELETED about 8 days of pictures from my camera !! Boooo !! I must have deleted them in camera thinking I had already uploaded them.  That was no bueno.

Anywho I'm going to try to pick it back up in hopes of being able to venture out a little more now that the weather has started to warm up.  I know... In a few weeks I'll be saying I'm slacking because it's too hot outside.  Ufff I hate the heat.  I really do.

Now on to the reason for my little rant here.  People and the Gym.  When people walk into the gym and scan their little card does all their common sense go out the window?

Let me give a few examples:

1.  Sweaty Man/Woman.  Please.Please.Please.  Wipe down your machine when your done with it.  See those little towels and bottles of cleaner?  They are provided to us for a reason.  I know you don't want to touch my bodily fluids and I don't want to touch yours either.  ACK !  So gross.  Don't give me the reason you don't do it because there are people there that are hired to do it.  That's just disgusting and your foul.  Oh and I will talk about you... even blog about you. 

2.  The people that come in and act like the own the place and change the channel on the tv.  Ughhhh excuse me? I was watching that.  Depending on my mood I have been known to say "Hey I was watching that" from the back of the room. 

Here's what you do if you'd like to view something else:
Point up at the tv and say anyone watching this?  At that point if you get a "No" Carry on and change the tv.

3.  Raggedy ass kids in the daycare.  I usually do an hour of cardio then go check on Loela to make sure she isn't acting crazy or giving Ms. Leann too much trouble.  I'll be gosh darn if the other day I peeked in the window to see some little mexican boy take the toy she had in HER hands away from her! Ohhh my nose flaired.  Do y'all remember " The Hand that Rocks the Cradle" when Rebecca DeMornay (sp) goes to the playground bully and pretty much says " I'm going to F you up" to him.  ha ha that's what ran through my mind.  The teacher caught it and Lo got her toy back.  Crazy kids. 

I guess that will do todays post on Gym Etiquette.   Remember my words because if I'm not talking about you, someone else will.

That's MY Cabbage Patch Kid she's playing with!.  Ufff she's so greedy next time I might just take it from her and yell "MINE ".  Yeah that's how I roll :)

He he see the wipie? She's cleaning her poo poo. Not to mention the Hello Kitty rain boots Mogo bought for her.  She loves them and will wear them ANYWHERE if I let her.  Silly Girl.

Well lookie here I finally managed to get out of the house and take a picture of something outside!

{ Christina }



He knows I don't laugh at him, but with him.

{ Christina }



So after reading and reading, I finally had an Ah Ha moment and things started to click with exposure.  I think I kind of got it here, but of course it's still a work in progress!

Well maybe not, I did a little PP but my Cupcake looks a little darker now then the unedited version? 



That's how she rolls.  One arm out while eating a cheese stick.

These are 3 of the 6 Pom Poms I made for Lo's playroom.  I did pretty good if I do say so myself!

My picture for this day is on my phone.  I'm too lazy to get up, plug it in to charge and get said picture.

I suck. I know. 

{ Christina }



Poor Cat.  I hope it can breathe! He he.

Uhm can someone please tell me why I had the need to have my ISO at 6400?  Yikes !!  Anyways I've been a bad blogger, a very bad blogger.  I'm doing ok with taking a picture everyday but I need to make the time to post them every evening.

My mom drew this with Loela one day while we were at her house.  Loela loves her Mogo!

{ Christina }



I know this picture has major No-No's in it.... Like the laundry basket coming out of Loela's head but we had been at my mommas got home late and this was the only semi-decent shot.  I'm working on learning the Clone feature, but after aggravation on trying to get the basket out I said forget it.  I also see that I had my ISO too high which led to the picture being extremely grainy.
As always I'm open to CC.

Bath time done, waiting for Dada to comb her hair.

I'm kinda ashamed to even post this picture.  Every picture I took this day was total crap.  After trying and trying this is the best I could come up with.  Sometimes the bananas are eaten, sometimes they're not.

* Sigh * What we have here is an unhappy Loela.  She HATES going to bed when she is at Grandma's.  She loves being with my mom and I love how excited she gets when we get to her house.

She totally hangs her lower lip like my Grandpa!

You ever had a Caballo Negro? That's a Black Horse for my non-spanish friends....(Like how I think I'm Bilingual now?)

{ Christina }



Does your fridge look like this?  I mean seriously..How many notepads does one family need?

{ Christina }



From a previous post, this is the stuff I was talking about.  Good!

{ Christina }



As I was sitting in Loela's room watching her play I realized it was late and I had no light outside to really get out and take a picture of something.  Then I looked up, and there it was.  The Hello Kitty Pez Dispenser Joe gave me the day of our Bridal Shower.  Our Wedding Helmets (yes we had Wedding Helmets - Doesn't everyone? Ha ha totally kidding).  Well about the wedding helmets I had no control over that.  Joe's Best Man/Army Buddy actually surprised us with those when giving our toast.  I think there is a story to them... but I don't really remember it.  I'll have to watch our video again and update y'all.

And us wearing the above helmets

Oh my word.  What a day.  I'll keep it short because I'm trying to watch the Craigslist Killer.  It's hard juggling 3 shows at once.  Thank God for DVR. 

I also managed to pack up some of Lo's clothes.  Yikes I'm totally saving everything of hers.  I sure am glad whoever invented Space Bags invented them. 

Agh forget it.  I had some stuff to type but this movie is calling me!

One of this weeks themes for SHS is a self-portrait.  So today I thought as I was looking at my pretty little tree... Perfect ! Loela is always looking at herself oohing and awing so I thought what the heck.

Here we have it.  My Self-Portrait.  What am I going to do Friday when the tree comes down.  It makes me so happy to come in the living room first thing in the morning at turn on my Christmas Tree * insert sad face here *

{ Christina }



So it's kinda scary how much Loela is like me.  Right down to all these damn stickers.  They are EVERYWHERE.  I was watching tv earlier and I felt her touching my feet I just kinda figured ahhh Whatevs..... I looked at my feet and she had plastered stickers ALL.OVER.MY.TOES. 

When I was a kid I loved stickers.  I mean the Scratch N' Sniff Stickers, Those ha ha I was going to type Anne Frank - Dork O'Rama... the other Frank chick... or Anne.. I can't remember someone help me out she had a bunch of unicorns and stuff.  

Anyway I'm rambling so here is today's shot.

Well I didn't exactly hit the grown running with my pictures today.  Joe, Loela and I pretty much laid around all day today, with the exception of getting out to Chili's to stuff our faces then Walmart to try and walk it off. 

Anywho I took like 2 pictures last night.  The one I post is being one of them.  I decided to whip out my camera again to see if I could get anything interesting...... Not so much.
So here is my 1st out of 365.  

Also if your ever at Walmart and your in the Alcohol section there is a display tree with ready to freeze Margaritas & Daiquiris.  You freeze the little pouches and a few hours later you have these ready made drinks.  Yum! (Talk about a cheap date) They were good though!

Best 1.97 we ever spent! (8.00 for 4 w/tax)
