A Note About This Blog

Some of you have clearly noticed the neglect this blog receives from me.  I've tried to figure out why and I realized it was because I spend so much time over at Facebook.  I had given thought to just deleting this blog but I don't want to do that since I can share some things here a little easier than at FB.  So I won't be abandoning this blog but if you want to see more about me and my life then please get on Facebook and friend me.  Message me if you need my name of FB. 

Ok back to your normal programming.

My last lazy OOH-RAH

I know you might be saying "Did she say OOH-RAH?  What is a OOH-RAH anyway?" so I'll first define OOH-RAH for you.  OOH-RAH is commonly heard within the military most notably said by the Marines.  It is their war cry.  OOH-RAH is conceived in sweat, nurtured in drill.  It is raw determination and gut-wrenching courage in the face of adversity.  It cannot be administered.  It is not planned and put into action.  It cannot be manufactured.  OOH-RAH must be purchased.

Today has turned out to be my last lazy OOH-RAH.  It was not planned and put into action.  I did purchase it at the tune of $20.  I simply got up today still not liking my weight or the way I look in the mirror as I've done for far too many mornings to date.  Without thought I ate ice cream for breakfast within an hour of waking up.  Then for lunch I had a mushroom and swiss burger with deep friend curly fries and a large cherry coke for lunch.  Oh I also had 2 hand breaded (with white flour I'm sure) chicken strips with honey mustard sauce.  Then I decided to check up on some of my Facebook friends that I hadn't had a chance to read up on lately.  Enter Tracey with a war cry screamed so loud I had to cover my ears.  I go to church with Tracey and she runs.  She's also a Team Edward TWIHARD. Need I say more? Ok I will. She also has 2 boys like me.  If that doesn't make you want to run to Tracey's web site then I don't know what will.  If you need to know what a TWIHARD is then go here.

So I was reading Tracey's blog and suddenly realized that I had entered into my last lazy OOH-RAH. I don't know what I'll have for dinner but since today's my last lazy OOH-RAH then I can assure you it will be some tasty, not good for me, include some kind of chocolate BLISS.  Guaranteed.

Then at 5 a.m. tomorrow morning begins a new OOH-RAY for me in response to Tracey's war cry.  Now I must confess that Tracey has no idea she issued a war cry to me.  The war cry was in my ears.  No one else is as delusional as me to infer a cry for war from Tracey's blog.  But none the less the cry for war has been issued and I'm responding back with a GREAT BIG OOH-RAH.  Tomorrow morning the blood, sweat, and tears path to a smack down begins.  I'm going to rise early in the morning and run (translation: walk with wheezing, double me over cramps, sweat dripping in my eyes).

I see your HOLLA! Tracey and raise you an OOH-RAH!!

Let the fun begin!
