I have a love/hate relationship with summer

Well this might get long... but I love and hate the summer time all at the same time.

In the HATE category we have:
  1. I hate that I have to work while my husband does things like this:

  2. I hate having to wear a swim suit.

  3. I hate that I don't tan easily.

  4. I hate that there are a million things I want to do but it is all so expensive.

  5. I hate that gas prices go up.

  6. I hate that I can't concentrate at work because I just don't want to be there!!! Anywhere but there!!

  7. I hate it when it is THIS hot in June and knowing how bad August will be.

  8. I hate watering my yard and the A/C bill.

  9. I hate shaving my legs all the time so I can wear shorts.

And in the love category:

  1. I love that I get to go on vacation.

  2. I love the taste of a cold beer on a hot day.

  3. I love when it finally rains.

  4. I love the beach if I get to go.

  5. I love veggies from the garden.

  6. I love summery dresses and wearing capris to work.

  7. I love summery shoes and flip flops.

  8. I love that it is so hot it is usually always acceptable to wear my hair in a pony tail.

  9. I love floating the river.

  10. I love eating fried squash.

  11. I love eating my grandpas dill pickles.

  12. I love our yard when the grass is just cut (that is if we can manage to keep it from dying).

hard core vacation preparation

My feet hurt! I have blisters! It's hot! and I just don't know if I am hard core enough for this working out stuff. I once was very good at it way back in high school. But not so much anymore. My feet really hurt, I need new shoes apparently, and no pedicure is going to even look good if I have blisters all over.

So how do I keep working out!? I have made it 4 weeks working out and eating better. Of course it was not every one of those days but it has been at least 3 to 4 times per week. And they say you need to do something for 30 days for it to be a habit right? Sadly I have only lost 5 lbs or so (I think). I guess I should be happy with that... and that was even weighing at night and not first thing in the morning.

And because I am stupid I just called today to make a hair appointment and now I can't get in until June 30. UGH! and I didn't have a choice on the time so I have to take time off work now. So I guess it should look nice though.

Plus I started tanning. But the girl gave me an extra minute or something and now I kinda burned. I am in one of the higher level stand up beds so that one minute was enough to do it. Thanks girl, I am know I am white! But the white will only be RED unless I take it easy and gradually go for longer. GEEZ. So I had to skip today. Ah well, forgot my tanning lotion anyhow.

And I think this weekend calls for shopping. I still need a dress. I found a few on but I would really rather be able to try it on and of course the cheaper the better! If you know any good online places other than that, let me know, just in case I don't find something.

I am more hard core about getting ready to GO on a vacation than anything else. I think I am spending more money just to get ready than I may spend the whole time we are away! I hope it is all worth it in the end. I just pray there is at least ONE picture that I don't want to (burn or delete I guess in this case). It is all things I neglect to do on a regular basis anyway so I am going to justify it that way.
