Hello beautiful people!

Please Hang Up and Dial Again...
Lately, I have not really felt like answering the phone. It is not a good look, I know. The phone rings and I don't really care. Maybe it is because I'm just not really pressed to get to the phone and if folks can't leave a message, I guess whatever they have to say isn't that important. I know that just sounds horrible but I have been trying to make a lot of phone calls when I'm in the car, but once I talk to my parents I'm home and the phone gets turned off. I'm usually just so tired when I walk through the door that don't feel like talking to anyone. Once I get on the phone (if I get on the phone) I have great conversations. It is just picking up the phone. I have a ton of people that I need to call, but...I'm just tired. I will do try to do better.

Well hello there! Okay, yes I've been gone for a lot time but I'm back! A lot has happened in these past few months. I'll start with the big news. I got engaged! Yes, the Haitian Sensation popped the question on the Spirit of Washington on February 15th (I'm very happy that he wasn't all cliche and waited for the day after Valentine's Day). We have no clue what kind of wedding we want, but I'm hoping we can hash all of that out in the next month so we can get this planning party started. Along with stressing about the wedding, I'm also stressing a little bit about the fact that in a year I am going to have to be in somebody's wedding dress. Which means unless I want to be wearing a dress with sleeves (you know those sleeves that I'm talking about- the ugly itchy lace ones that they always put the big girls in), I'm going to have to hit he gym and hit it hard and often, but I will freak out about that in another post. Other than the engagement and my extreme excitement about the fact that Spring is coming, nothing big has really happened. Oh wait, I lied. I got a new car. The B3 is being picked up by Melwood on Monday and I am zipping around in a very cute and gas efficient Toyota Corolla. I bought it from my sister, who was very good to it, and I am over the moon. No more spending 60+ dollars to fill up my gas tank. Okay, that is all from here. I am off to figure out a plan to get The Sensation roped into wedding planning. More on that later.

My Neck, My Back
No, I'm not alluding to that horrible song by Khia, I'm talking about the fact that my WHOLE BODY hurts. Okay, first let me extend my apologies for not posting in ages. I've been busy and sleepy. I hope everyone had a good holiday season and 2008 is treating everyone well. Now, back to my aching body. This year my goal is to take care of me and go to the gym more and eat right. (Notice I didn't say lose weight, if I do that in the process ((which I know I will)), I'm happy). So, to that end I've dedicated myself to going to the gym at least 5 times a week. I've also added some weight-lifting to the mix and I am quite sore. I'm seeing more definition in my legs and my body feels stronger, but the pain is still constant. I guess they say no pain no gain, but damn, when will it stop hurting??
Hmmm, what else to recap? The new job is great, my boss is great and all of my co-workers ROCK! The Sensation is good and the weight loss journey continues. I have some questions though. Why do I keep seeing albinos? I've seen 3 in the past two days. How can I win the lottery so I can work because I like my job, not because I'm broke? How do you say, "you have the wrong numbers, stop calling me" in Spanish. Someone in California keeps calling my cell phone and they don't speak English so telling them that they have the wrong number hasn't bee working. Thoughts?

Thanksgiving at Home
Last week I decided that I needed to go home for Thanksgiving. I realized I hadn't been home for almost a year. That is really odd for me because usually I go home every couple of months. My salary didn't really allow for plan tickets home and I was trying really hard not to just put things on my credit cards. Anyway, as I mentioned in my earlier post, I had been having a really rough time and I just needed to go home and see my parents and be on their couch. I charged my ticket, and I don't even feel bad about it because I had such a great time and I just needed that family time. It was so great to see my parents and just be with them. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and spent it with family and friends.

I *heart* Stevie Wonder
Stevie Wonder is 57, he has a serious receding hairline,insists on holding on to his dreadlocks and he has gained some weight since he was in his prime but I LOVE him. I went to go see him last night at the Verizon Center and I feel in love all over again. He gave a great show and he did all of his old favorites plus some new ones. This was definitely good use of money that I didn't have, because I *heart* Stevie Wonder.
