I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive

I live in SW Oklahoma. It's cold here today. It's probably in the 70's, but when you've been in the high 90's and low 100's the past few months, the 70's are cold. I am about to take Mackenzie out to ride on her 4-wheeler. (It's a power wheels 4-wheeler).

So I went to the dr. for my foot. She referred me to an orthopedic surgeon. He didn't see a break so he diagnosed me with tendinitis. He gave me a cortisone injection and put me on naprosyn. I am back to normal, but I did request that Tony puts me on the elliptical for the next few weeks instead of the treadmill or stair stepper. My foot may feel a little better. But it's not right. Oh well. I HOPE tomorrow is me legs day. I plan on doing 285lbs on the leg press.

Eats are good. Water is okay. I think I drank a gallon yesterday. If not, it was damn close. I will get there tonight too. TOM is here. Geeze each month flies by. I think that I am starting early then when I calculate it, I am right on time. No fun.

I am sorry I have nothing exciting to write. I meat a person today and he inquired about my background and was quite shocked to find out I was educated. Well, let me rephrase that, as it sounds degrading. He wasn't shocked that I was educated. It's not like I come off as a hillbilly and he was surprised that I got out of jr. high. He was surprised that I have an Associates in Aerospace Ground Equipment (that's mechanics), Paralegal Certification, a B.A. in Political Science, and that I went to law school for a year and a half. Oh, and I graduated 3/1000 from undergrad. Why was he surprised? Because you don't meet a lot of people in my town like that. He said I was overqualified for Altus! And he said I was an attractive, classy young lady that was very sophisticated and I needed to find myself a sugar daddy and get back to law school! HAHAHAHAHA. Was that an offer? This man IS a 40 something yr old attorney that was in Starbuck's. He said a 40 yr old would leave me alone and let me study. Was he offering to leave me alone and let me study? Maybe he will finance my education so I can be his partner...in law, not marriage....Oh well, it was nice to be complimented. And it's nice to get to brag about yourself every now and again....it reminds you that you are a remarkable person. At least it reminded me that I am pretty darn special! Okay...at least I think I am special....

:) Wow, you should get back to Law school, what made you stop to begin with? I hope you get that foot figured out...and elliptical should be fine, you have to find some kind of substitute for the mean time that doesn't hurt...so glad you are alive :) Keep killing it and add another plate to that leg press I know you can do it :)

Oh you are DEFINITELY pretty darn special!!! Very impressive stats there. LOTS of studying. Wish I had a degree. I know, it's never too late. One day.....

WOW!! 285 lbs on the leg press!!! Let's see.....the highest I've done so far is 130 lbs. Yup, I'm a wimp! I'm workin' my way up though!

Keeping you in my thoughts and really hope that the foot heals so you can get back to normal. HUGS!

You live so close but yet so far from me. Altus is a long way from OKC. I live by just off I-40 west of OKC and yes, it has rained here for days. I guess we might as well get used to it because it is going to do it all weekend.

Hope your training is going well.
I spoke with my grandfathers sister for the first time in 20 yrs. She lives out of state. She said I did not sound like I was from Oklahoma and that I sounded very educated. I had to keep reminding myself that she is kind of uppity up too. I am sure people would crack up at some of our Okie talk, that is for sure. I think that guy was truly coming on although he is a bit older than you.
