It looks pretty, until you slip and slide in it, of course I wouldn't do that.. I'm great on my feet. Not clumsy at all!! Okay, well there was this one time, at band camp, oh sorry wrong story.. Anyways, I was in Boise Idaho, in the middle of winter, waiting for my bus to leave. We were stuck due to the weather. Me and some other people decided to go to the Chinese place around the corner and order some take out. On the way back, guess who slipped and landed flat on her butt. Yup that was me. I bring this up because I almost did it again taking these pictures..
The branch on the ground is from the last ice storm. The tree got weighed down so much the branches were nearly touching the ground. The dog, thinking it was a new play toy snapped that big branch off..

This morning, (if you can call it that, what with still being dark out and all..) I got up at 4:30 so I could get to my 5;30 fitness boot camp session, in Arlington. My sisters friend, you know the one? The on that begged me to join this boot camp with her? Yeah that one. Well she stud me up! I had to go by myself. but it was fun and man am I sore today!! I thought that other days with just the treadmill were bad..
In other news, my hubby got sent away for a job. He will be in Abilene till friday. i just hope he makes it there okay, its in the low 30's and there is suppose to be an ice storm headed this way..

Okay, okay, she is not my own personal trainer. I couldn't afford one of those.. It's a group thing.
One of my sisters friends talked me into joining this fitness boot camp with her. She really didn't have to do much talking, I have been wanting to do something like this for a while now.
I'm not going to tell you my weight, but its not good.. I've been overweight for a long while now, I just didn't want to do the gym thing by myself and I had no girlfriends to go with me..
Today, I am sore. I'm hurting all over the place. I think its mostly from moving the treadmill by myself.. That was stupid. So starting Tuesday at 5:30 am I will be getting myself back in to shape!!

In fact, he still makes enough to where I don't have to work, but it would be nice if I too were bringing home a paycheck. Since we moved I have applied at tons, if not billions of places. Finally last week I got a call for an interview from the last palce I applied at.
I bet your asking yourself, "Whats this got to do with elephants"? Am I right? Well I'll tell ya! The last place I applied at was the Fort Worth Zoo. Now, I'm sure I won't be interviewed by an actual elephant, but you got to admit, that would be pretty darn cool!
So, tomorrow I'm off to the land of animals, and hopefully it won't just be fleas I'm bringing home, but a job! Maybe I should discreetly wear a flea collar?

I am also making Carmelitas. You can get the recipe from Tanya at Sunday baker.
The first picture is mine, the second one is from Tanya's blog. Hers turned out better than min..
It's taco night, here at the Watson household. We love taco night. I usually eat about 2 taco's the hubby stuffs 3 or more down and we still have tons leftover! I'm stuffed, but I can't wait to try the carmelitas! I'm still waiting for it to cool..

Sign language is a part of who I am, even if I don't get along too well with my sister. I don't want to forget that part of me..
I use to want to be a sign language interpreter, or teach at a deaf school. I got the chance to be an interpreter a few years ago, and I sucked at it. My sign language is very shotty at best. To be an interpreter we had to be qualified by the state and take all kinds of tests. The first test I had to take, I was being evaluated by 2 hearing people and 1 deaf person. I couldn't do it. I had to leave the room because I was shaking and crying so hard. The second test I manged to get through because no one was in the room with me. When I got my test results back, I lost all confidence in myself and my sign language. One of the comments on the test said, "This person does not have an understanding of sign language and looks to be a beginner." (give or take a few words, this is from memory..) At this point in my life I was 23. I had known sign language for 22 years or so. I couldn't believe I was marked as a beginner.
After that I lost all confidence in myself and my sign language. My point to all this is, I am starting to regain my confidence, well okay, I'm hoping to regain it..

Sleeping in the yard.
I love you Junior and I'm sorry, but there is a better home out there for you.
Scooter wouldn't let Junior eat her food..
Or let Junior on the porch.
Other than that Scooter was a friendly little dog
He eventually went home and Junior got to eat.
