A Box of Crazy

Like all chics, I love, love, love the holidays. And in the fall, you get the 4 best holidays of all time in order- each a little better than the last. (*insert warm fuzzy feeling here*)

Despite being super duper broke right now and being a single car family, I feel relatively awesome. The stress has been high, but I've been blowing off a lot of steam with friends and trying to pull myself out of my slump with new interests. My friends have been awesome- I had so much fun hanging out with them this week. Omg I had almost forgotten how fun college was until Friday night.

We just cut loose and acted like idiots. Total, total, total success in wiping out stress. Next event: Snuggie Pub Crawl.

For Christmas this year I want Santa to teach me to skate. Recently I've
become obsessed with roller derby, which you should check out. The chics are so ferociously killer. And so confident in their own skin. I love that about them. So killer.

So maybe that would be a good way to become more active again. Sometime last spring I just decided that I was tired of being in pain and that I just wasn't going to do anything that was going to make me hurt anymore. Besides yoga (which does make me hurt but is awesome anyway), I've
done minimal exercise. That has
worked out pretty well besides like 8 pounds I've gained since then. I know- it's tragic, but what do you do? I've already made the big mistake and the only thing left to do is get back on the wagon.

I found a chronic pain/fatigue "graded exercise schedule" that I'm going to try out to ease back into it. I'll let you know how it goes.

And if that wasn't awesome enough, I left you a video, too, of beautiful San Diego footage. Geesh you're having a great day!


P.S.- Have you watched the Gene Simmons tv show? I just love his kids. They are too sweet. Seriously.

I completely agreee with you on the roller derby! I went to a meet, or whatever, over the summer and I left thinking, "That would be kinda cool to do!" Except for the fact that I'm not sure I'm brave enough. My friends that were with me were like, hello? 6 foot, 170 lbs? You could totally do it. So, I will if you will...could be fun. ;)
