Kathy Griffin

I think I am falling in love with Kathy Griffin (not romantically of course because Paul is the love of my life) but watch her on Larry King Live... Awesome and read her interview in BUST magazine. I can't wait for her book to come out in September.

Life is great right now! I have started doing Bikram Yoga and I am really feeling the difference in my body and mind it is amazing!

Paul and I are still working at getting out place all put together it is slowly coming along, I think we will paint the kitchen this weekend... I will take before and after pictures and post them!

Our kittens are growing so fast. It is 2 weeks since they have been born (today!) and they are 3 times bigger then when they were born, their eyes are starting to open and it is the cutest thing ever. I can't wait till they start walking around!

My dad was here last weekend and it was awesome. I am such a dad's girl and it was great to have him here. I wish it wasn't so short but I am happy he could make it out east either way!

Paul and I are going on vacations to the summer house in Pennsylvania for a week. Oh I can't wait! July 1st - 5th we will be living it up on the lake. We really need this time to us so it is going to be amazing!

Well I think that is my life in a nutshell for right now. I really need to get on planning some showers/parties for my sisters wedding. I hope she will be happy with what I do for her!

We have kittens!!!

So it happened last night. Pixel gave birth to 4 amazing little tiny kitten's.
When we got home from work Paul was making dinner and Pixel was meowing at me a lot and trying to make a place for herself in the laundry basket so I knew right there she was going to give birth really soon.

I got her out of the laundry basket and out of our bedroom and got her a place made in the office. She followed me there and lay down and started to prrr a lot and I could see her tummy contracting. I went to leave for the bathroom but she followed me even though she was having contractions [this cat really loves me and I was by her side the whole time].

She gave birthday to her first kitty which is white with big gray spots (which I think might be my favorite because it was my first kitty I had every held that came right out of the mother) at about 8:30pm and then the second one (which is white with bit orange beige colored spots on it) at about 9pm. Third kitty came at about 10:30ish I would say this kitty is all white but has black ears and tail. At this point Pixel is tired and meowing a lot. There is blood and placenta (which she ate). I knew there was another kitty in there but I didn't know when it would come out. I was so exhausted at this point but I lay beside her and just petting her and talked to her. Paul feel asleep on the couch cause he was so exhausted.
I went to bed a little after mid-night cause there was not another kitty, but I knew there was one there. I woke up in the middle of the night around 3am and sure enough she had another kitty and it was already clean and eating from her nipple. The fourth kitty is almost all black with gray and white stripes and a little white around the nose. I think this might be my favorite looking kitty.

It's going to be so hard to pick one to keep cause Paul and I will be keeping one.
I am so excited, seeing a living thing come into this world is simple amazing. There are no words to true express this. I feel so honored the Pixel let me pet her and hold her kitty's right after they were born.

I will post some pictures soon of our awesome new addition to our family.

Soya... no so good!

I think something that is funny that with getting on the healthy band wagon I started to drink soya instead of milk. I found this very interesting YouTube video on soya and how it is not good for you in the forms that we have been told that are good for us. And this information is coming from a doctor who has been a vegetarian and eating her share of soya.

I feel great!!!

Lately I have been feeling like I have come out of this kind of dark place. Not that it was bad it I think was more a product of my environment more then anything. The move has been awesome and I have been reading a lot of articles on healthy living and well I am moving in the right direction. Here is something interesting that I found on the net from Dr. Douglas Graham in his book "The 80/10/10 Diet". Now I'm not going on the diet or anything but I found it interesting that I feel like I have been surviving more then thriving... with the move and my mind set in place, I feel like I am thriving!!!

Alright so although Paul and I have just moved and have only been in our place for about 2 days now. I feel the positive change. We have more room. Sunlight. Good air. No bands playing around us. A big kitchen. Pretty much we are moving on up in life. I feel like I am starting with a clean slate.

I have started my eating better and tomorrow and I am going to start Bikram Yoga tomorrow. I am really nervous because I'm scared of failing cause it is so hot in there and I am scared I won't be able to breath and then I will panic. I am sure I will be fine and will start to feel much better but those are my concerns for right now. I will keep writing about what is going on with that.

June is the start to new beginnings... kind of like last year June was for me... I started working at Conlatus today last year. HAPPY 1 YEAR of working at Conlatus!!! More good things to come!~
