Can you have motivation but not be motivated?

Right before we moved I finished up a 12 pages of a family vacation in Hawaii in my scrapbook. It was the perfect stopping point. And well we moved. I'm settled in. And I still hadn't worked on the scrapbook. I had my room all set and ready to go but all last week I had the motivation to get up there and start scraping those pictures again but for some reason I wasn't motivated to go and do it. Sound too weird, doesn't it? It was weird. I really wanted to get up there and start working on stuff but sitting on the couch was all too comfortable. All week went by, how annoying. Then one day some how I had an extra fifteen minutes in the morning to kill. So I wondered into the "scrapbook room", peeked in my picture box to see whwat group of pictures were next. Then I sat down with some magazines to come up with some ideas and before I knew it I was totally ready to get going. And guess what? I had to go to work! Total bummer. All day a ton of girls were headed out the door early and it made me jealous. I wanted to go home early...I wanted to scrapbook. Now that I finally was motivated to scrapbook I couldn't. That night I had something and even the next evening I had something too. When Saturday came all I wanted to do was work with my pictures and such. So I didn't clean the house, I only started laundry (cuz you know, you have to do laundry on Saturdays) and then off I went. And I finished this wonderful layout. I guess my motivation comes from early in the mornings. How cool would it be if I could wake up an hour earlier than usual just to do whatever I needed to do. That would be so if I could only be motivated to do that.

There is Beauty All Around

Remember the beautiful gerber daisy plant that Travis gave me for Valentine's Day? Well after the main gerber died I had a hard time getting another flower to grow to its full size. I thought it was lack of sun so when we moved into our new place I put it outside. At night I thought I would bring it back in and when I put it on the kitchen table these little white bugs started flying all around. AH! I put it back outside and just kinda left it alone. Sad day. I thought bad cuz the thing pretty much died. But yesterday when I came home from work I noticed something pink up on the deck. I checked it out today and you would not believe what I saw.

How could this have happened? Who knows. All of the leaves were brown and droopy. I've been meaning to throw it out but just haven't done it yet. But how cool that this little flower still managed to grow? So cool. Just thought I would share.

Relay for Life

The highlight of my weekend was when Travis and I went to walk for the Relay for Life that my work was apart of. It was fun to walk...and then it started to rain. That kinda stunk but it was better than the blazing sun I guess. But then it really started to come down. But everyone continued on walking and activities were still going and people continued to buy ice cream so I guess it all worked out. It was fun to get out of the house and to hang out with some of the girls from work.

This is Alisha, Deanna, myself, and Heather. Alisha teaches the three-year olds (the class right above mine). Deanna teaches the one-year olds (which is the class right below mine). And Heather helps me out in my classroom in the mornings, she's a keeper!

There was a hula-hoop contest, I did it for so long that my abs were staring to hurt. Yeah for exercise.

Just before I left all of the survivors from cancer did a lap together and a little girl at the day care, she's three, was walking. About a year ago I was helping out in her classroom and then she kinda disappeared for some health reasons. I later found out that she had cancer. It was so fun to see her walk with all of the other survivors form cancer. They were all much older people and then there was this little four year old, strong girl. It was a precious little moment that I rather enjoyed.
Well those are the only pictures that I can upload, it's weird. I've never had a problem uploading pictures before but for some reason most of my pictures won't come up so I guess this post is considered done.

I'm back!

I've been without my computer for the past couple of days because of all the crazy anti-spy ware stuff out there. I really don't know what was going on but somehow it blocked internet explorer so I couldn't even get online. I got stuck using firefox. So I tried to just stay away from it all and luckly I married up because my awesome husband fixed it with the help of our very cool brother-in-law. Thank you Forrest! Thank you Forrest! Thanks to them I now have my computer back. I've missed it. Now I can chat so everyone email me! :)

My goal for summer 2008

I'm not very good at going out and exercising. Ever since I screwed up my knee some how I haven't been able to run on and so that has limit what I have been able to do to help exercise my body. I have been wanting to get back into shape for quite some time now and this summer I came up with a great idea on how to do that. Bike to work! Perfect! I now have the goal to ride my bike every day to and from work. So Travis and I unwrapped the bikes, dusted them off, pumped up the tires, and rode our bikes to my work. I thought I would do a test run to see how long it would take for me to get there. Guess how long? Just under fifteen minutes! How cool is that? Not a lot of time at all. So this is my goal. We will see how it goes. Hopefully I am successful and hopefully by the end of the summer, I will thighs like someone who rides their bike every day. Can you picture it now? Oh baby, Oh baby. Wish me luck!
