Updates

I haven't posted anything for a little while because nothing too exciting has happened. But I figured it's probably time for an update anyway.

Things are going really well. Cory and I are spending as much time together as possible before school starts on Monday and we never get to see each other. This semester is going to be really challenging. Cory is registered for 20 credit hours and my classes are online and require excessive amounts of reading, work, and volunteer time. But I know we'll make it through. Eventually we'll be done with school and wont ever have to worry about that again. I can't wait!! Anyway, we've been trying to have some fun together. Last night we went to the Home Remodeling Show at the South Towne Expo Center with my parents. It was a lot of fun. We spent a good 20 minutes talking to the guys at the Sleep Number bed station... We really want one when Cory graduates because he has so many back problems. And it was the only station where we could learn about a product while being completely comfortable. Those beds are amazing. We also went to dinner at the Spaghetti Factory where Cory and I both learned it's important to NOT try new things there and stick to the spaghetti. Anyway, that's about all we've been up to as a couple. Now I'll update you on us individually.

Cory has been enjoying an easy going week with not too much work and no school. He's been home all day (doing who knows what haha) while I'm at work. He's also been determined to perfect his bumper on his jeep so that everything will be aligned perfectly. Lately, all he's been talking about is rebuilding a rear axle for the Jeep. It's going to be a long way off before that becomes a reality, but working on his Jeep is something he loves so I'm all for letting him do it, as long as we can afford it. I know it means a lot to him.

This week was my first week back at work after Christmas break. It wasn't as bad as I expected but I loved staying at home all day and being lazy. Other than work, the only thing that's worth reporting for me is how I am doing on my New Years resolutions. I feel I've been doing pretty well. I'm more conscious of my personal traits that I need to improve which has helped me remember to work on them. So that's good. I could probably be more strict on the weight loss one though. The ONLY way to lose weight, is to burn more calories than you eat. I've been doing that, but only by a couple hundred or so. That could be improved. I've eaten better in the past, I need to get back into that groove. But I'm trying at least and as long as that keeps up, I know I'll want to keep improving.

So there you have it, our lives are kind of boring. If anything really exciting happens I'll be sure to let you know.
