It's been almost 11 days since I made a post! I haven't had a blogging hiatus this long in a while. I blame the weather. It's been really cold and snowy here. Winters in Kansas are so unpredictable, and I've never been a fan of the cold. Give me a hot summer day over a sub zero windchill any day. After one or two snow days, I've hit my cold quota for the year. I did make it to the gym on Tuesday for my personal training session and it was probably the most challenging workout to date. I really had to get in there and use my core muscles which is quite an accomplishment seeing the hardships they endured during the last operation. If you could see my stomach, it really does look like a manatee got run over by a boat.
Besides the weather, I recently got a job for a few hours a week doing social media marketing for Northglen Antiques in Hays, Ks. You should totally check them out on Facebook. The owner specializes in Scottish antiques and a host of other imports from Scotland. I don't know that I've ever specifically mentioned it in a blog, but my mothers maiden name is Wallace and her father, my grandfather, was second generation American. Genealogy has always fascinated me! I actually got one of those DNA tests from Ancestry.com, but my spit was rejected and they sent me a new collection kit free of charge, but that was back before the surgery and it got misplaced. Total bummer. I really hope that I find the silly thing! I'm so curious to see what it says. Watch, it will tell me that I really am part manatee.
Speaking of manatees, I'm planning on expanding my Manadee tattoo and I've come up with an idea for a tattoo I might get with a friend (the siren call of the ink is strong with this one). One day, I'm going to run out of discreet places to put all my skin art and then I'll either have to get brazen and put it in a more visible place, or...I actually don't think there is an 'or' - when the ink calls, it calls.
Also, I got my totally amazing boots that my amazing readers voted 'yes' for. I'm glad you guys are willing to go out on a limb and dress me in ridiculously awesome fashions and makeup, because sometimes, I just can't make these kinds of difficult decisions on my own. Speaking of which, I have way to much free time on my hands and my husband thinks I need a hobby (he's probably right). Maybe you all can help me out with that. Got any recipes you haven't been brave enough to try? Topics you'd like me to blog about? Songs you'd like me to sing? I've probably just opened myself up to things getting real weird, but hey, it'll probably be more entertaining than cleaning my house, right?
