I've got nothing

Okay, that's a total lie.  I've got a lot.  Just not a lot that is bloggable or blog-worthy.  A lot of things are going on, things that I'm either not at liberty to discuss, are too private to want to talk about on this blog, or come off as just plain old whiney.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I'll get around to telling you about the "too private" and the "plain old whiney".  Not today though.

So, today is Thursday, and today I'm going to be taking my final for macroeconomics.  I haven't worked out the past 2 days, because Tuesday was a scheduled rest day, and I felt like poop on Wednesday.  I literally laid down in bed, and told Ammon that he needed to make the rice for dinner.

Which brings me to another point:  I now trust Ammon enough in the kitchen to let him prepare rice without supervision.  Both of us deserve awards:  Ammon's for superior culinary advancement, and mine for a slight decrease in neurosis.  I feel like I've made greater strides in this department than he has in cooking.

I took this picture when we were waiting for Mount Rushmore to light up... we were parked a few miles away, because parking at Rushmore is a huge rip-off.  Doesn't he look happy???

Speaking of my neurosis, 2 years ago yesterday Ammon and I started "officially" co-habitating.  I have never grown so much, compromised, or learned as much in the 25 years leading up to that day then I have in the following 2.  I know it isn't the right choice for everyone, but I can say that it is the best thing to happen to our relationship, and that it has made me more sure than ever that I want to marry this kid.  In a year or so.

Do you ever think about what your life will look like in a year or so?  I seem to think about it all the time.  Ammon doesn't like to do that so much.  He's more of a "focus on what's happening now" kind of guy.  So when I ask him about things a year or two in the future, he usually has to look at me blankly for a minute, and then start a long timeline to figure out what he sees.  So I usually just have him repeat the same "what-ifs" over and over.  It's easier than playing the scenarios game and going through the whole timeline.

I was supposed to study all day Monday, and instead went to Costco with my mom.  I made some awesome purchases, like a 2 lb block of cheese, a giant pack of string cheese, a large bag of prunes (to counteract that cheesey goodness), and a down running vest.  I was really excited to show Ammon the vest, and then he made fun of me for buying a quilted vest.  I'll try to take a picture sometime soon so that you can decide if he was in the right on this one.

Oh, and you'll love this... when I told my mom I was hanging out with her instead of studying for finals, she said "You can study later tonight."  Love how her attitude has changed on the subject of studying now that I'm paying for my education, not her =).

I'm really not sure what else I can ramble about today.  I wonder how many of you have made it this far.  If you have, I bet you're wondering about taking away my award for being less neurotic, right?  Yeah, me too.  So until next time, blogland...


  1. Your mom sounds awesome! Hope everything is ok my dear! Hate when things are weighing on your mind that you can't/don't want to share.

  2. I just love cheese, haha. I was eating eating cheese toast while reading this, and was still drooling over ALL the cheese you bought! =)

    And congrats on the rice-accomplishment!

  3. a down vest.

    woa. there is much to say about this. hunter and i still laugh at photos of ourselves from when we hiked in down vests. they make you look fatter than you are, but they sure as heck keep you warm.

  4. I've laughed and wondered about this vest all day.

  5. Mmm, all that cheese sounds awesome. And I think that I HAVE to see this vest that you're talking about. I mean, really. My foot is cramping hardcore and it's all I can think about. That's why this comment isn't more awesome.

    OH! Good luck on your finals. I know you will rock them!!

  6. yay for mount rushmore! my boyfriend is from rapid city and i love going back to visit :)
