Today, however, if I don’t do it this way it’ll be Friday before I post anything. I seem to be quite busy lately, so here are some things going on.

>I decided to jump on the bandwagon and try out the 30-day Shred. I probably won’t be able to do it 30 days in a row due to days I work 12-hour shifts, but I’m going to try. So far I’ve done three days and I’m walking around like an old lady all stiff and jerky. Seriously, I am sore all over it hurts to sit on the freaking toilet. I knew I let myself get soft, but this is ridiculous.

>Megan and I saw In the Heights last night as I mentioned, and it was great! My brother said he’d burn me the soundtrack and I can’t wait. I usually fall even more in love with musicals after I have a chance to memorize their songs. One day I’ll put together my top five, but I want to become more of a connoisseur before then.

>I donated blood today for the first time since before I got pregnant. I wouldn’t have been surprised if they denied me due to low iron, but I was right at the cutoff. There was a bad moment when the screener asked me the birth date of my last child (because I had to answer ‘yes’ when I was asked if I had ever been pregnant). I don’t feel that people should assume that just because a woman has been pregnant it means she has a child. It really made me sad for some reason.

>Only me and one other person are going to make it to our book club meeting tonight, so instead of our usual dinner at Cafe Express I’m going to her apartment to have Boston Market, brownies (I think since I gave blood I deserve a little something sweet), and watch Dancing With the Stars.

>Almost forgot – anyone have any links to recipes that are healthy and not too complicated? My husband and I are pretty picky when you put us together, so it’s hard for us to find healthy meals we’ll both eat. We’re fine on snacks, but I really need some dinner ideas that will give us meals other than cereal & sandwiches.

>I feel like I barely have time to be online these days. I don’t know how my days got so packed. I’m working a lot (I picked back up the contract job giving chemo on my days off from my other job that I did before I was pregnant), and seem to have a lot of social engagements as well. At home I’m trying to keep the place clean, change our eating habits, exercise every day, and handle our crazy dogs. I’m going to need to slow down soon!

Gotta go, love you all. :)

    From Nikki:

    Robert and I make stir fry pretty often – we cook a bunch of vegetables (broccoli, baby bok choy, small sliced carrots, all colors of bell peppers, and whatever else is in the fridge) and we cook chicken in bite size pieces – when everythings almost done cooking we add stir fry sauce (in a bottle in the Asian aisle). It is so easy and tasty and good for you (unless the sauce is bad but I don’t think it’s too terrible). I could eat it every night!

    I have tons of yummy dinner ideas, but since you guys are picky eaters, what’s off limits? Let me know and I can e-mail you some ideas!

    From Emily Jane:

    I’m feeling pretty run off my feet these days too – but it’s good to have things to fill life with :) I’m sorry about the blood donating experience. I hate how people can just naturally be so insensitive sometimes too. *Hugs*

    From curlsofred:

    It makes sense why that experience made you sad…some questions just aren’t as easy anymore. I’m no help on the food questions – we have a hard time ourselves.

    From Hannah Katy:

    Everyone getting into the 30 day shred is inspiring me to maybe pick it up again as well… I have the book sitting in my desk. Let me know how it goes for ya love.

    Busy, busy girl! Let me know how you like the 30 day shred. I’m loving pilates, but I don’t know if I want to pay the money to go again next month.

    I hate the have you ever been pregnant questions. I had to answer that for a massage, and I kind of freaked out.
