My elliptical. I've tried plenty of exercise equipment, videos, and workouts but that elliptical has turned out to be the best money spent. After I had Raine I started experiencing some issues with my knees and ankles during any physical activity but the elliptical is super easy on my joints while providing me with a awesome cardio workout. Plus I can just zone out to the television while I am doing it and the 45 minutes a day I spend on it just flies on by. I miss my Tae Bo but this is a worthy replacement.
Patience. I am so horrible at it. It's definitely something I need to work on. I'm like Varuca Salt....I constantly "want it now!" but obviously life doesn't work that way. I need to just relax and enjoy the moment. Quit worrying about these things that make me impatient. I'm working on it though.
My last day at work on Thursday. Partly I am excited about it. I mean, it means a lot more time with The Destroyer and with my family. But I am still sad about it too. I have worked full time since I was 15. I don't really know anything about this staying home business. The idea of not bringing money into the house makes me nervous. Plus, no offense to woman who stay at home at all, but I am not entirely sure I AM that kind of woman. Time will tell though and I am sure Raine will keep me plenty busy....or I will keep him busy.....He'll probably wish mommy would just go back to work already ;D
The light buzz of Raine's white noise machine and the dialog of an episode of A Haunting that is on T.V. Jimmy is off doing karaoke. I will never understand why I insist on watching these paranormal-type shows when I am alone in the house. I'm just asking to be terrified, right?!
My favorite, pasta bake! It's just an easy meal I make on occasion. Ziti, two jars of sauce, and a little bit of water in a baking dish. Cover that bad boy with some tin foil and put it into the oven (preheated at 350 degrees for the curious) for 30 minutes. Uncover and stir in some more water, top with some yummy mozzarella cheese, and throw that sucka back in the oven for ten minutes and bam! Dinner =) It's easy and it's yummy. What more can you ask for?
That we could hit the lotto. Who doesn't, right? I was on my realtor's website and saw she has just listed what would be the perfect house for us. It fits all our search criteria and gets all checks from our mini (read neurotic) perfect-house-for-us-wish/check-list. There's just one teensy little problem.....it's just a little bit out of our price range. If we won the lotto I could pay off the little bit of left over debt that we have remaining and we could probably qualify for it. I would donate the rest of our winnings, promise. I just need this little itty bitty portion of it and the rest I will give away. *sigh* one can dream ;)
