Married for 10 years!

Yesterday Aaron and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary.

These first ten years of marriage have been an extraordinary journey!  There have been so many up and downs.  Tears, laughter, anger, frustrations, disappointments, success, doubt, fear, joy, sorrow, bliss, contentment, worry, relief, happiness, stress, hope, and love.

Aaron and I have gone through thick and thin. (pun intended)

We had some very dark times where we were both encouraged to leave the other, but our desire to be together, and make "us" work ultimately wons out.

"True love is the love that lasts through hard times."

Things I've learned after being married 10 years:
  • Aaron cannot "read my mind" but he is very good at interpretting "Jessesse"
  • Prefection isn't a requirement for anything.
  • Pick your battles, don't sweat the small stuff.

I may be having a huge legal/medical battle with Humana and the woman who hit us on May 15th.

I am really worried because it sounds like Humana is going to go after her insurance for all the stuff related to my back.  The worst part is, it sounds like if they are not successful getting money from her, then I have to pay for all the medical cost for the accident myself.


I think I need to get a lawyer. : (

Never too late!

Maybe you were one of the thousands of people who vowed to make 2010 the year you get healthy!

Now nearly 9 months into the year how are things going for you?

Even if you gave up before February I want to encourage you to get back on the healthy wagon!

Losing weight isn't instant.  It takes lots of time changing your lifestyle. 

Being healthy is not just a list of foods you eat or avoid, and workouts you hate.   Even if you are able to reach your weight loss goal that way - you will never stay at your goal weight if you hate the lifestyle!

I learned which healthy foods I actually like and made them part of my daily menu.

My exercise of choice is walking at my normal pace while listen to music.

These are the tunes I am listening to currently that really get my bootie moving!!

After listening to some of these tracks and I am sure you will be energized too!!

Southern Hospitality

We've lived in Atlanta for over half a year now.

Everyone who warned me about the heat... it's not that bad.

It is more humid back in Wisconsin and just 10 degrees cooler.

I will be laughing my butt off when winter rolls aroung again and it's in the 40's and 50's here and in the teens back in Wisconsin!

People down here are super nice! (Except when they are driving.)

It's still amazing for me to have doors and elevators held for me by strangers.
