one week down, a few more to go
Saturday. 9.18.10 12:03 pm
So Jacob has been gone for a week ... it feels like it's been so much longer than that. I seriously can't wait until the time comes for me to go up there. It's still not going to be for a few more weeks; I'll most likely be leaving mid-October. The dates are tentative, just simply because he hasn't gotten a job yet, but since it's still a few weeks away we'll be standing by those dates unless something changes.

My job is getting worse and worse by the day. Probably because I'm so close to leaving, the little things that were already getting to me are getting to me even more. I just have to keep telling myself to get through one day at a time and soon enough it'll be time for him to fly back out to get me.

His mom is driving me crazy. I think she misses him more than she's letting on and it's driving me nuts. I don't mind spending time with her, but I also want to do my own thing. The fact that we pretty much work the same schedule means that we're home at the same times and we're both off on the weekends. I seriously wish I could have gotten this lucky with Jacob. It would have been great to have almost the same schedule as him, but unfortunately it didn't work out that way. Hopefully in WA I'll be able to get a job and work my schedule around what his already is.

Anywho, I just wanted to give a quick update. I've made it through a week. And even though the dates for when I'm quitting and leaving NV are not set in stone yet, it's nice to have an estimated time as to when this will all be happening.

Till next time NuTang...

I can't wait
Sunday. 9.12.10 1:46 pm
So Jacob left for Washington very, very early Saturday morning; like around 2am. Yesterday was the hardest day to get through. Today is a little better and the fact that he's almost there comforts me. I'll feel a little better once I know that he's getting settled in and is looking for work. We'll be talking to each other every day, but the one phone call I receive from him telling me to put in my two week notice will be the best phone call ever. I seriously can't wait until I'm up there with him. I have to be patient, though. I can't expect him to find work in the first couple days. That's what we're both hoping for, especially since he's got a few highly potential offerings, but we have to be realistic. Still, though, I can't wait till he flies back down and we're driving my car up there. Even though we won't be able to do much sight seeing on the way up, I'm still looking forward to the drive up there with him. It'll be the first time that the two of us has gone on any kind of lengthy drive. I don't count the five hour drive to Disneyland because someone else was in the car with us. This time it'll just be the two of us.

Anywho, I added three new pictures to my gallery. {don't ask me why the pictures are so big ... I'm not sure how to fix them} It's pictures of myself, my fiancé and me and my engagement ring. They're the most recent I have and I'll probably be adding more once we're on the road, so in about a month or so. You can view them here. I want to buy a camera before I head up there so I can use something that's better than the camera on my phone. Perhaps Best Buy will have a sale on cameras within the next month.

Alrighty, I just wanted to give an update. I'm not making any promises, but I might be updating a little more during the next month just simply because I'll be bored out of my mind just waiting for the time to come for me to leave the desert.

Till next time NuTang. . .

I have to tell someone ...
Wednesday. 9.8.10 7:49 pm
Jacob bought me a ring! We had been talking about it for a little while and decided on something a bit cheaper than your typical engagement ring. We might or might not look at actual "engagement" rings later on, like ones with a full carat diamond or more, but for now I like what I picked out.

This is what it looks like. I think it's very pretty. With it's petite size, it doesn't overpower my small fingers.

I pick it up tomorrow. I would have it now, but I needed to have it sized down a half size. I didn't want to take the risk of buying it as-is an have it slide off my finger. I can't wait to have it on my finger.

I haven't told anyone yet and it was starting to get to me. So I figured I'd share with all my NuTang friends. I probably won't tell anyone at work, right away at least, just to see how many people notice the new, shiny ring on my finger. Since it won't be ready until tomorrow evening, I won't be wearing it to work until Friday, but still. A day is enough for at least some people to notice. Especially since I have a habit of keeping my hands up by my face.

I can't wait!

new shift
Tuesday. 8.24.10 7:33 pm
I'm working different hours at work now. Instead of waking up at 1:30am to be at work by 3:00am, I don't have to wake up until 5:00am to be at work by 6:30am. I'm working an actual day shift: 6:30am - 3:00pm. It makes the day go by a little faster and I'm actually able to sleep at night instead of going to bed at the weird hour of 8:00pm. The only unfortunate thing is that I don't see Jacob during the day anymore. We only see each other between the time he gets home from work and the time I go to work. It's nice being able to actually sleep with him, though.

Anywho, I exercised twice since I wrote up my last entry and haven't done it since. Oh well. I'm sure I'll pick it up sooner or later. It's kind of hard when the Wii is hooked up to the only TV that we have in the house. I don't always like having an audience when I'm exercising and with someone almost always in the house, it causes an issue when it comes to me being comfortable exercising. We'll probably just buy a Wii once we're settled in WA.

Okay, I'm going to get comfortable and finish up 4th of July. Tomorrow I'll be starting 5th Horseman.

Till next time NuTang ...

*yawn* ugh, why am I so tired?
Monday. 8.16.10 3:06 pm
So my exercising has gotten off to a late start ... meaning I haven't done anything yet. I walked a patrol at work; the one that takes 45 minutes to do and involves stairs, but somehow that doesn't seem to be enough. I was supposed to come home and get on the Wii Fit today, but I was tired so I layed down. Instead of forcing myself to stay awake and do the necessary exercising I need to be doing. Jacob exercises at night when he gets home from work because the house is quiet and it gives me the time to sleep before work. Maybe I should just start going to bed earlier and wake up when he gets home so that I can exercise with him.

I need to stop sleeping so much in general. This past weekend I got more than enough sleep to last me the whole week. I just don't seem to understand why I'm suddenly so tired. So that's it. I'm here right now to say that I'm going to stop napping when I get home from work. Naps are good on the weekends to help replenish so that I can stay awake later into the night, but starting next week when my schedule changes at work, I won't be able to nap. I'll be getting home too late in the day; it'll feel weird laying down at 3:30, 4:00 in the afternoon. So today was the last day I'll be napping when I get home from work. Except maybe this coming Friday, but that's part of the weekend and it'll be aiding in me staying awake later.

Tomorrow I start my exercise routine. My goal? Lose the ten pounds that I've gained over the last two weeks or so, by the time I leave for Washington. So that gives me about a month and a half. If I happen to lose anymore, then so be it. An extra 5 or 10 pounds won't do me any harm. I keep joking saying that I'll lose weight just from shivering once I'm up in WA.

Anywho, I need to shower so that my hair will be dry before I need to sleep. I'll be finishing 3rd Degree tonight. Maybe I'll start on the fourth. Maybe not. It all depends on when I sit down to read and how long it takes me to finish.

Until next time NuTang. . .

hypocritical me
Tuesday. 8.10.10 5:07 pm
As I sit here and contemplate what I should do in the way of exercising so that I can lose my slowly growing midsection, I am indulging in a pint of Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie ...

I've decided that I'm going to start working on this starting Sunday. This way I can start at the beginning of the week and make sure to work on keeping myself motivated through the entire week. If I were to start tomorrow, it's already halfway through the week and I've already blown it by eating a bunch of junk food. For now, I'm going to eat my ice cream and once it's done, it's done. I'll be doing what I can to avoid buying any kind of junk food.

Simply eating healthier doesn't entirely do the trick. Sure, it'll help build up my immune system, but as far as losing pounds? Exercising is what does it best. In Tucson, I still ate all kinds of junk food, but maintained a steady weight of about 133. I was walking everywhere that I needed to go. Probably not even half a mile a day, but I was still walking every day. I was drinking a lot more water and also working in an environment that kept me on my feet and moving constantly, helped.

If I had the money, I'd join a gym again. But unfortunately I need to save up whatever money I can so that I can get to WA. In the meantime, I'll be working on the Wii Fit, attempting to do the P90X with Jacob and I'll be motivating myself to do some walking at a nearby park. I'll probably drive to the park, but still. Once I'm there and get into a nice pattern, it should help.

This pint of ice cream is really good, by the way.

In other news, I'm coming close to finishing the second book in the James Patterson series that I'm reading: 2nd Chance. This way I can start on the third one: 3rd Degree. It's a good series. I really do enjoy reading, I just don't do it near as often as I used to. Perhaps in Washington on the really stormy, rainy days, I'll be able to catch up on books I've lost out on.

Alrighty, I'm going to finish this pint before it melts. Once I'm done with it, though, I will start my "scarce junk food" plan ... minimizing chocolate intake, as well as pizza/fast food/ other unhealthy items. More fruits and veggies. As well as healthier sandwiches and snacks. I heard graham crackers were actually really good as far as being healthy. Perhaps I'll check into that.

Until next time NuTang. . .
