My Amazing Life

Saturday was a very lazy day around my house. Both the cats usually fight to sleep next to me on the couch and on this day Ben won. Watching a cat (or dog) sleep is sooo relaxing to me.

I had the privilege of spending the last two days with S and as was wonderful. Our relationship is not perfect, but it's pretty darn close. We decided early on to always be best friends first and to always love with respect and kindness. When I was with Laura we always talked about being nice and treating each other with respect, but with S I feel like we actually are doing what we said we wanted to do.

We went shopping and I found this calendar:
It is the coolest calender and has lots of cool pictures. And the best was 75% off. Yay for sales. I love this show and can't wait for it to come back on. Does anyone know when it's coming back on??

We went and saw The Curious Life of Benjamin Button last night. What a wonderful movie. The cool thing is...his birth Mom has the same name as me. (before she got married) When her name was said both S and I looked at each other and laughed. It's not too often when I hear someone that has the exact name as me. There were a couple parts that really touched me and made me think about my own life. I think I was meant to see this movie right now and at times it was like the characters were speaking right to me. The most important thing I took away was...It's never too late to change your life.

S is so funny because this morning I moved around 5:30am and she said, "Oh, you're awake." Apparently she had been up for a while since she is used to getting up around 5am. Thankfully after a back rub she feel back asleep until 8am. We ended up staying in bed until almost 11am. I don't know about you, but there is nothing better then a lazy morning watching your favorite daytime shows in bed. It was a perfect morning.

Today was just another day where I looked back on how far I have come in the past year. A year ago I was getting ready to move into my apartment not knowing how my life was going to look even six months down the road. And here I am just 12 months later with so much love and friendship in my life that it's overflowing. The last 12 months have been very challenging, but I wouldn't change one single thing.

I haven't heard about the amazing race but survivor usually starts around superbowl time.

Sounds like a cool, lazy weekend. I like those. That's funny about your name and the movie. I'm willing to bet my name never shows up in any movie any time! Well, at least not till they do the story of my life and marvelous deeds I've accomplished.

BWAAAAA ha ha ha ha ha!!!

I hated that movie. It was so boring all I could think about was how sore my behind was getting.

Ahhh, afternoon naps with warm animals.
Amazing race is such an awesome show, but I am always just a little embarrassed when some of the crazier contestants start shouting at the cab drivers, etc. I don't want other people to think all Americans are like that.-:)
