Attention! This is a rant/vent ** Then I will get to my day
Why can't people understand that I do not want children? I don't understand what is so hard to understand about that.
My co-worker's wife is due soon. I am very happy for them. I know they are excited and I am excited for them, however I don't want to be in that boat. Another co-worker asked him when his wife was due and he said next month. The co-worker then said "now all we need is Cortney on board" I looked at him and said "I would rather die" He just stared at me open mouthed. He didn't know what to say.
Children aren't for everyone. I recognize that I would not make a good parent, so I decided not to be one. I love other peoples' children (in small doses) I volunteer with Kids at the library... I just don't want kids of my own... ever.
In other news, my day was pretty decent. I volunteered at the Library today for the United Way of Blair County's Day of Caring. Area business allow employees to volunteer with the United Way for the day and pay them their regular salary. The volunteers are then sent to different community organizations. Our group of volunteers helped with outside maintenance. They trimmed the trees and shrubs, planted flowers and tilled up the mulch in front of the library.
I was in charge of getting lunch together for our team (go figure lol) - We had Ox Roast, potato salad, chips and cookies. I set up a nice buffet style lunch for them and everyone enjoyed it. There was so much left over food! I brought a container of Ox Roast (ox roast is made by putting seasoned, cooked roast beef through a meat grinder, then placed in a slow cooker with water and spices) for my boyfriend. I did ok at lunch. I didn't overeat, but I did have a few chips and some potato salad. It was good!
After the library, I went tanning then to the gym. Now I am at work. Whoo hoo!

My co-worker brought in Mrs. Grove's Pastries for us today.
Mrs Grove's is a mom and pop bakery that is only open 3 days a week (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) from 6am until they run out of goodies (which can sometimes be noon, but is usually around 9) People line up in order to get cinnamon rolls and monkey bread.
I haven't had Mrs Grove's in years. When I lived in Altoona, I used to make it a frequent Saturday or Sunday thing, but since I moved in 2007, I have not had the opportunity to indulge in their ooeey-gooey goodness until today. I had a piece of monkey bread, and topped it with their peanut butter "butter" (which is like a frosting, but not as sweet) It is an experience I can not begin to describe... to say it was absolutely, amazingly delicious would be an understatement. It was like a gala affair in my mouth!
This is where the moderation thing comes into play. I wouldn't "spend" the calories on a tasty cake, but a homemade baked treat made by three local ladies? Heck yes! And I enjoyed every sinful bite!

I was reading my old blogs last night, and my... it is amazing how things change. I feel it is necessary to go through those from time to time to relive my old frustrations and remind myself just how far I have come.
When I am having a bad day, and I feel down on myself for whatever reason, I revisit those blogs and photos to remind myself that I am NOT that person anymore.
Last night at work was tough. There was cake all around me. I have a weakness for cake. Most of the time, I can stop at a bite or two, or at most a small piece, but last night I didn't feel like that was going to be possible. I felt like if I had a bite, it was going to turn ugly. So, I abstained. It wasn't easy. In fact is was down right hard, but I managed to do it.
I don't really want to go to work today. It is Law and Order SVU Marathon day on USA Network, raining out side and the cat is cuddled at my feet. I seriously don't want to get off the couch.
I am sore from lifting yesterday -- it is awesome. I love it. The weather is supposed to be crappy the next few days - don't think i will be getting a good bike ride in... well, maybe I will. Maybe I will go riding in the rain. I guess it depends on how warm it is going to be.
Blah, time to get ready for work. I may blog later on tonight if I have time and something to say
