Page and Other Updates

I've been wanting to change my page for a while now but until last night I hadn't been able to find the design that fits me. This one does!

It only took me for!freaking!ever! to figure out how in the crap to make everything all come over that I had on my other page. I sat here for literally hours before it finally dawned on me what I needed to do. I even sent out emails asking for help. I'm pretty sure the people I sent the email to are currently changing their pants from having laughed at me so hard they peed themselves. Because once I figured it out it was so so simple to do. A1 or even A2 probably could have figured it out in half the time it took me.

Speaking of A2, he and his brother, A1, are both on fall break this week. We were going to go to the park today but had to do some birthday shopping for the MIL. Big fun there. *rolling eyes copiously* Oh well, gives us something to do tomorrow.

Can I just take a minute and give a big ol hallelujah to the fact that it is finally feeling like October around here and I am really looking forward to going to the park to enjoy it! Let me ask this though, where else but here is it possible to need both your air conditioner and your heater in the same 24 hour span?! What is up with that?

I look forward to October every year. I really do hate to see the summer go because I would rather sweat to death than be bitter cold but I love it when the breeze outside cools things down just enough to where you need to wear jeans and a t-shirt or shorts and a light long sleeve shirt. It's the in between that I just love. I look forward to turning off our a/c and opening up the windows and letting the fresh air in the house until it gets too cold to bear at night. But let me just say this, the high here was 93 on Monday and over the weekend I went outside and came back in with visible boob sweat because it was so hot. There is NO REASON for boob sweat in freaking October!! None!

Another reason I (heart) October, I'm a huge Atlanta Braves fan and (use to) look forward to the World Series at the end of the month. I use to follow them religiously. Now not so much. Can you believe we lived in Atlanta for a couple of years and NEVER went to see a game! I went to more games when I didn't even live close. My husband isn't the typical sports nut so I could never really talk him into going. He's just not that into it although I'd rather he be into sports than that sci-fi bullshit I'm forced to endure on a regular basis. He and A1 are killing me with all that Battlestar Gallactica and Stargate crap that's back in the fall TV lineup. Don't they realize The Bachelor and The Real World are much better shows to watch?! Like, seriously!

One more tidbit that makes October my favorite month of all, both of my children were born in July. You do the math. There's just something about October!

Let's see what else is new with me. Oh, membah when I said I had some product reviews to do? Well here's a short one for you. Somebody told me about this lotion from Aveeno called Positively Smooth. Supposedly you use it after every time you shave your legs. Here's their claim:

With an exclusive combination of natural soy extracts, skin-silkening soy, and skin conditioners, this moisturizing lotion makes hair look and feel softer, finer and less noticeable within 4 weeks, so you can shave less often while visibly improving skin tone and texture. This breakthrough formula contains rich emollients and vitamins to moisturize for a full 24 hours to improve the look and feel of skin, leaving it softer and smoother.

After using it for almost three months, here's my opinion of their claim:


For almost $10 for an 8 or 10 ounce bottle of lotion I was expecting to see at least a little difference. I see nothing. They claim you can even use it on your bikini area for noticeably less stubble. Again, bullshit. When I first got it I tried to shave at least every other day and put this lotion on right after. I'll admit the smell was pleasant enough, but not something I would want to put on my whole body and I have to say it wasn't greasy at all but it just didn't do anything for me. I would have gotten about the same results if I had been slathering myself with butter. And probably more attention from the husband. And lets not even go there with their claim to improve skin tone and texture.

Don't waste your money on this one. Use that $10 to buy a couple of lotions you like from Bath and Body Works. At least you can use them all over your body and smell pretty. I find that smelling pretty more often than not will distract my husband away from the fact that my legs could rip the hide off of him if he got too close. Especially when I can find the lotions that make me smell like vanilla or oranges. He's a sucker for sweets! I could seriously go in the kitchen and rub cookie dough on me and get more of a rise out of him than any expensive perfume or lotion out there on the market.

Enough about that though, I've got to go work out now even though it's after midnight. Hubby left us to go fix a water heater at his brothers in the next state over so we can stay up as long as we want and sleep as late as we possibly can in the morning. I think I'll pop the boys some popcorn and stick in the Jungle Book downstairs to keep them occupied while I'm sweating my hiney off to some Janet Jackson. I figure some Nasty Boys and What Have You Done For Me Lately will get me moving pretty good tonight.

By the way, I weighed myself this morning and it said 143 again. I don't get it. I was happy to see it but I just don't get it. How can I fluctuate that much in just a matter of days? I'll be too afraid to weigh myself in the morning for fear the damn thing will read 155 or some shit like that.

Lovin' the new look here! I too want to change my page ... so don't pee your pants - just tell me, where'd you find such a cool template, and was it just a question of copying and pasting the html?
Take care ~ Kitty :-) x

I get my templates from you can click on the free blogger template link and pick from whatever you want. if you don't know how to set it up they have a help button above the code. if you get one that is html then all you do is copy the code. if you get an xml template you have to add all of your extras as a widget through blogger. it's simple once you get started. if you need some help just let me know!

Cheers :-) x
