Okay, y’all, we have some things to discuss. No, you’re not in trouble.

Sometimes I feel listy (listish?)

1.)  I went to “THE Dr.” this morning for “THE annual”. That’s probably not something most people feel is appropriate to share on the internet. I’m pretty sure I don’t feel it’s appropriate. But, grow up. It’s life. On a related note, one time a grandfatherly doctor told me that I had a great looking cervix and if there were a billboard advertising cervixes, it would have a picture of mine. Try not to get too jealous. I’m sure yours is nice, too. Anyway, the reason I felt like telling you is because that’s where I was when THE EARTHQUAKE hit. Yes, I do live in Stillwater, OK. That’s why it’s weird. Honestly, I thought someone was just rolling something rumbly (rumblish?) and heavy down the hall. Thank God that’s what I thought because can you imagine my reaction if I had been sitting there naked with a paper towel over my special parts and thought I was feeling an earthquake? I mean, I just wasn’t prepared. Spencer is disappointed (as he should be) because he was driving and didn’t feel it. Apparently it was a lot stronger down Purcell-way because my mom called just wallago with stories of things falling off walls. But, then, she does tend to lie…                            

Please feel sorry for me.

I would like you to know that the above picture came from a site called And, I’m not going to visit the site to see what it’s about.

2.) Onward and upward. Next we have how much I weighed at the doctor. 165.6lbs. NOT COOL. Now, I’m not sure if I’ve actually gained weight or have been using faulty scales. I’ve always loved Spencer’s scale. It is from about 1927 and always makes me skinnier than what I really am.

The best scale ever.

I’ve been walking around thinking I was 159lbs. GEEZ. I think I’ve gained weight, though. Even though I’ve been running, I haven’t been lifting weights. And I think strength training is where it’s AT, readers. Therefore, I now have the decision of whether or not to spend money on a gym membership or put it into the $1000 emergency fund I’m trying to build…

3.) Which leads us here. I’m reading Dave Ramsey’s Total Money Makeover and I am all. about. it. BUT, I don’t know how in hades I’m gonna get $1000 bucks rounded up for baby step #1. The idea is that if you have an emergency fund, you will not feel like you have to go into any more debt. So, I need to find a part-time job with flexible hours (because I’m never sure when I’ll be needed at my other job) and I need to sell some stuff. BUT, I have nothing to sell because I always do that when I’m broke and I’ve basically gotten rid of everything because I’ve been broke a lot the last few years. I’m about to start pulling things off the wall and putting them on craigslist…Because even though I did get a cool new job, I am not making as much as what people have been assuming…

4.) Now, for the stuff that REALLY matters. No, this blog is not about my babies (Cause I have none. Let’s be honest here- if I did, that’s prolly what this blog would be about) . But, that doesn’t mean I can’t talk about other people’s rugrats (Actually, I can talk about anything I want because I don’t know of any blog police. So, there). Especially since the baby’s grandma requested it and it’s the most exciting thing I’ve been around lately. My sweet friends, Tabi and Toby had a baby last night. Toby and Spencer are cousins so I got to go to the hospital with the fam. It was really special. What a miracle to think that a little human was inside of Tabi yesterday and then, she wasn’t anymore. WEIRD. Congrats to the new family! I am now going to steal a facebook pic and post it. If any family members are weirded out by that, let me know and we’ll get rid of it.

Laiken Lea is here!

5.) I did another 5k on Saturday. My time was about four minutes slower than the first one. That can be attributed (blamed) on many reasons but the one I choose to focus on (because it was in no way my fault) is that it was 978 degrees farenheit. But, the good news is that even though I ran more slowly, I spent less time walking. Only a couple of minutes. And I saw two people puking. So, at least that wasn’t me.

Morgan, Matt and I. I think this is called "drunk on endorphins and one pitcher of Bud Light".

Notice the professional, lady-like, modelesque pose I’m doing.

If any of you smarty britcheses out there have any advice on the weight loss (I’m gonna take off 15lbs by June) or the money saving, lets hear it!

Love y’all and I hope everyone has an awesome week!

    You are a hoot! So much of your mommma in you my friend!
    I’m in the same position as you are with both money and the LBS. I am doing circuit training three mornings a week and trying to cut out my faves: Dr. Pepper, bread and fried crap. I also just started a new job to help replenish the funds adopting Tucker and buying a bigger car wiped out last year. Stick with the Ramsey plan! It works and we’ve loved it. (we were dedicated until we no longer could be.)

    You are my hero and the most hilarious person I know. You being at the GYNO during an earthquake is just freaking hilarious! I heard that someone fell off the toilet but the GYNO may top that!

    Excuse me????? “She does tend to lie….” I NEVER lie. Okay, maybe I just lied, but I didn’t lie about the earthquake. Just ask the forty billion people that called me to ask, “did you just feel that?”. It was craziness!

    P.S. – I started back to Weight Watchers AGAIN! Wish me luck.

      Thanks for reading, everybody! Mom, stop with the lies (forty billion? really?) and good luck with Weight Watchers (even though luck has nothing to do with it)!

    I think the secret is putting Bud Light in skinny beer cans AND skinnier slices of cheesecake! If that doesn’t work, try dancing to the “Rugby Song” in your cowboy boots (no socks) and wearing a turban (???)

    • heatherok October 17, 2010 at 10:32 pm #

      Oh, Cathy, that only works for Andrew! hahaha

  7. Natasha October 17, 2010 at 9:46 pm #

    Okay, sooo…we need to be friends. Right now. I laughed so hard about your earthquake whereabouts that I’m pretty sure a little of my Sunday night red wine went into that back part of one’s nose where it stings more than if wine had actually come out of said nose. So, thanks for that. FRIEND!

      It is written: Heather and Tasha are now and from henceforth friends. : ) Glad to be your friend!

    What a hilarious way to start my morning!! Found you via Tasha’s site and added you to my daily dose of all things Okie!
    I was in the garage and thought my husband had been buried under an avalanche of junk from his closet. Came into find him in the kitchen though and was perplexed until my Mom texted me. She tends to lie too ;p
