Oversleeping is Expensive

There is nothing interesting online at the moment.. although I guess that's impossible.. so I guess I just can't find anything good to read at the moment..

Decided to do a little fast this week.. 3 days of no food, then 3 days of just fruit, and on the 7th day fruits, veggies, oatmeal, and brown rice..

Sounds like a nice little detox to me! And besides.. I was really going coo coo for coco puffs over food there lately.. I must have ingested *thinks to self... 8 a day x 14 days* A LOT of Reeces peanut butter cups in the past few weeks.. and I was on a cereal kick.. 3 bowls a day.. and of course it was Fruit Loops or Frosted Flakes..

But more than anything.. I just felt distant from God.. (and so close to food).. so I figured what the hay.. nice little detox to break the cycle..

Today's only day 2.. but it's already 3:30pm and I'm not even close to caving.. I feel energized (uhh.. that's probably from the Caramel Frappacino with a shot of espresso from Star Bucks.. haha.. but no whip cream! LOL cause that's "food".. aw man, I kill me.)

Anywho.. I feel great! I feel empowered and in control and clean and strong!

But enough about that..

Summer is going great.. except that I'm broke as a joke.. I have received $700mo from the Army for the past 6 or so years for attending school.. but I graduated in May and am no longer receiving it.. so until the baby starts preK in September and I in turn start my jobby job.. we is living off Ramen.

But that's okay.. we're homebodies anyways.. we live 6 blocks from the beach and we have a pool so... we're enjoying the laidbackness of it all..

Speaking of our pool.. wanna hear a funny story??

It's the summer of 08 and I'm very pregnant with Ethan... I tell Frank I can not make it through the summer without a pool pass or season pass to our local waterpark.. he tells me to get lost and that we're not paying $500 for either one..

Ok fine..

Fast forward a few weeks and Frank decides to not wake up one morning even though I'm all big and pregnant asking for him to get up and help me with whatever it was I needed help with.. He used to sleep til 2pm all the time, but it drives me bat shit crazy, so that ended a few years into our marriage..

But on this particular day he just wouldn't get up. So I showed him.. drove my big ol self to the pool store and bought us a pool. hahahahaha...

He woke up thinking Oh boy, I'm ganna have to hear her mouth. But instead he got a big old smile and a hysterically laughing wife. =) The really funny part is four years later I've maybe been in the pool a dozen times. Probably closer to 8. But the boys and Frank love that thing!

He only slept that late ONE other time.. and it just so happened to be the day that some Tar Company came knocking on my door asking if I wanted a paved driveway for super cheap since they had extra tar from a job they did around the corner.

Omg.. he let the pool thing go because we had saved up a few bucks.. but the $500 I spent on the driveway did not go over well..

Needless to say he has not slept ridiculously late since.
