So for the last 2 weeks I've been laid up with a sprained ankle. It's not like I'm not use to it. I've sprained each ankle at least 6 times. At the very least. But I think it is getting worse everytime. I think it is more difficult for them to heal. And my left ankle, which is the one that is injured now, is the one that has gotten it the worst! I've been with Brian for 9 years now and I think I've had 3-4 sprains since being with him. It sucks!!!
I went to physical therapy today. It hurt a bit. It started to burn after awhile. But I really need to strengthen them both. Hopefully by next week I can play softball and maybe even some football.

This weekend was boring! Brian went down to southern Ohio to participate in a half ironman. He did pretty good for his first one and I'm so incredibly proud of him! I couldn't go with him because it was last minute and I had to stay with our babies! So I stayed home on Saturday night and watched 3 episodes of Star Wars. Which is fine with me becasue Hayden Christensen is HOT! I went to bed early because I was really tired. I'm not sure why I was so tired, I just felt wipped out!
I also had made homemade meatballs and sauce on Saturday night for Brian's parents cookout! They were yummy !!! I was saving some for Brian, but his family actually went through and picked out the meatballs on Sunday afternoon when I bought the meatballs and rigatoni! I was only able to find him 2!

We spent Monday at his parents as well with our Irish cousins. We were just being lazy and sitting in the pool all day. My sister bought my niece over and we taught her how to swim. And Brian did flips in the pool to entertain her! He is so cute!!! She is a cutie too! They both have my heart!
I'll post some pics as soon as I get them all ready!
Only 3 more weeks till France and Italy!

Pug-O De Mayo/ Missy's birthday

May 6th came and passed by... It was Missy's birthday and we celebrate every year even though she is gone. On that day we took Nikya to see the pugs at the annual Pug-O De Mayo near Squire's Castle. It was a fun time for her and us...

Cleveland Marathon

Two of my friends, Bridget and Rachel ran in the Cleveland Marathon this past weekend 5/21/06 . Both ran and raised money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma society which is very close to my heart. Rachel ran the 13.1 mile marathon and Bridget ran the whole 26.2. Also our friend Annie and Susanna ran the marathon. They all did excellent! It was a rough day for me because I had a hard time getting around to see them due to my sprained ankel and wrist, but it was still worth it. The morning started off raining real bad. We saw our friends pass at mile 6 and drove over to mile 9/10. While we were driving there the rain stopped and the sun came out. There wasn't a cloud left in the sky. It was beautiful day!

So is there anyone at work that annoys you... I have someone.. and I won't name names. I have lived life. I have dated a lot of people, have a lot of friends and have a lot of funny stories. In fact, my friend Chad likes hearing the stories of the guys I dated and even joked about co-authoring a book about my mis-adventures in dating. So every now and then I bust out a funny story at work. Well, this girl always inturrepts and says.. "This one time at band camp" At first I thought it was funny. Now no matter what I say, even if it isn't a story, she says out loud, "this one time at band camp. " She might not even be part of the conversating, but says it. It is f-ing annoying. This girl mocks me for having a story about everything. Which I pretty much do... If you live a good life, you have stories about everything. And I've lived a mixture of a pretty good and pretty rough life. I learned a lot of lessons.
Now this certain person is pretty judgemental I think. And I come to find out that she has no life, no hobbies. We were trying to give her suggestions on how to meet guys since she is getting a divorce after being married less than a year. So basically she has NO LIFE! We suggested having her friends introduce her to people. She only has one friend she says. Again, no life. So I was saying something to someone. Not even addressing her and she says it again, " This one time at band camp. " I told her," Dude, I'm not talking to you. Don't be mad at me becuase I have a life and lived it and have stories to tell. " (Again I wasn't telling a story either, I was explaining something to someone!) She says it whenever I'm talking and it is annoying.
At first when she was telling us she has no place to meet someone, I felt bad. But then I realized she did it to herself. She has no hobbies. Who doesn't have a hobby!?? Something that you love!! I love sports, photography, my friends, concerts, music, movies! She just likes to be miserable. SHe isn't a bad person, I like her well enough. But I'm at the point that I'm annoyed! Something is only so funny for so long. And if you are jealous of me, then get over it.
The other thing is, that this girl told me I had no right to be envious of the other7 ( that is right 7) girls that are pregnant.(well, 1 just had her baby) 2 of them didn't even want to be pregant. They were accidents. I'm trying hard to get pregnant and it seems to be in the water that everyone is drinking, except the water I'm drinking. 2 people don't even want to be pregnant right now and I'm trying hard (as is another co-worker who has been trying for 9 years! I have nothing on her!) to conceive! I have every right to be envious. But i'm not being a hater... I even tell them I hate them! But they know I don't really mean it! THey know that I'm meaning I wish I was pregnant! My attitude has not changed towards them! I love them all! I'm happy for them at the same time my heartaches! How dare she tell me I have no right to be envious! I have every right! They are doing something I want to be doing right now! I know how my co-worker who has been trying for 9 year feels. Except my emotional credit card isn't as far in debt as hers is... For 9 years she has had to watch all our co-workers get pregnant! I must suck for her big time. I play off mostly how I feel... but yeah, I'm envious! At least I can admit it! After awhile if we don't get pregnant, I will have to be numb to the pain of watching others have babies left and right. I'm so afriad that test is going to say negative...and Brian and I have barely even started.. We are on our second month of this. Not even close to 9 years. But don't tell me I'm not justified or even my co-worker is justified of being jealous. It is human nature. If I was jealous and a hater, that would be wrong. But I'm not a hater! I'm happy for my friends.
