scifi conundrum @ 09:32 pm

okay people help a girl out

i would like to introduce my Jerrod to Firefly. he isn't much of a scifi type, but i want him to make it thru at least one episode, and preferably ask for more. and have him hear Kaylee call things "shiny"

episode suggestions? just start with #1?

so i've had the same trainer since like april (may?) but he got another job, so this week will be my last session. and my year of 5session/mo locked in is up next month. but since i've used like 4x/mo, i should have some to burn up still as i break in someone new.

i've acheived  my goals of general fitness, running a mile, riding my bike, paddling a kayak, etc. and ya know, lost several pants sizes in the process.

what should i tell the new trainer? i want to be able to kick a door down? lose my muffin? i have registered for a 5k and currently get pooped at .75miles....not sure it will actually happen. my lungs are screaming and my pulse is racing when i finish. maybe i dont breathe enough? maybe i'm mildly asthmatic after all? hmm

life is funny @ 11:34 am


so i look at my last post...by the end of the day I decided I could want it. I did want it.

and so I've been dating my best friend. and it's been different and new and familiar and routine and happy. his community is cheering us on. some sectors of mine are disappointed at worst, cautious at best. others join me in giggling. i appreciate the varied perspectives, input, and support. life and especially new adventures are done in community.

but I love Jerrod. and he loves me. and we're excited to see where this road takes us :)

i had a cold all thru christmas so i hadn't been to the gym in 10 days. went in this morning and now my hands hurt from the weights, but i feel less like a slug :) ready to get back into the swing of things now that i can breathe without medication ;)

wish me well, for today Jerrod, myself and his daughters are joining my parents, younger sister and the new dog for lunch.  and mom is without a doubt the biggest naysayer.

a season of hope.

banking rant @ 09:54 pm

Current Mood: frustrated frustrated

aaa uses bank of america for their credit cards. so i have my cc thru b of a.

always been well pleased with online chat customer service.

logged in last week and didn't see payment i thought i had scheduled for credit card coming due. tried maneuvering site a couple different ways and couldnt get to screen i expected and the one it would show me had no record of a payment scheduled. tried to get a chat window but was informed no reps available.

scheduled payment so as to not be late. i dont even get a statement if i wanted to be old fashioned.

today tried to log in. site is mostly down for maintenance, can't view history/balances on card. billpay screen just shows one  payment.

but balance shown on card would  indicate double payment. luckily there is that much in my catastrophe fund at credit union, so i transferred funds to savings to avoid overdraft mayhem in the meantime but i realllly hope they fix this when i get them on the line tomorrow because otherwise i'm closing my account.

oh there you are peter @ 09:00 pm

maybe i'm fatalistic but it seems to me the things that end up working out are not the ones that i am running around trying to make work and realizing aren't what fits anyways. like trying on the perfect pair of pants whilst shoe shopping. or vice versa.

or figuring out that your church is involved in just the kind of community building you want to join in, and they have been looking for someone that speaks spanish to join in the fun. (boggle)
so i'll be at the food pantry eating soup with people and/or interpreting and making small talk when it opens next in two weeks. :)

you ever feel like you've been walking around with your fingers in your ears refusing to see/listen to the truth and can't believe how obvious it is?
