23rd Anniversary

So, as of yesterday Rich and I have been married for 23 years! Wow how time flies!
We had a great day. We don't really do gifts for special occations, we do that on a regular basis, so we prefer to spend time together. So, we had a date. First we went to lunch at the Cheesecake factory. We had lunch and then shared a piece of raspberry-lemon cheesecake. It was really good.
Then... we went down to the SpeedStreet indoor race track. It's Kart racing and it was really fun. We got the three race package. I had never done this before, Rich had. So, in the first race, I had some trouble; I couldn't reach to push the gas down all the way (too short), so I couldn't get full speed. Rich could and lapped me... the little bugger. The second race, the guy put in a jumper seat for me so I could reach, it was much better. Rich still beat me, but he didn't lap me. The third race, I actually finished in 11th place for the day. Woo Hoo, the only girl on the scoreboard! Rich, however, finished in second for the day, and came in 44th place for the month.

So what's up

Well, I guess I should update my page, but there really hasn't been too much going on around here. I went to the eye doctor and got a new prescription to get a new pair of glasses. That was sooo not exciting lol.

Little Miss Lydia had her second birthday recently. She was so cute at her birthday party. I got her a baby doll that she would not put down, a couple of outfits and a pair of cute little dress shoes. She grabbed the shoes and put them on and wouldn’t let mommy take them off. It was so cute. She’s such a girly girl lol.

Poor Ryan had to take his car in to have some work done on it. He and Rich were going to do it themselves, but they discovered that they would have to drop the front end and we are not equipped for that kind of work in our garage, so he ended up having to find a mechanic... to the tune of $650.00. But hey that's still better than the $1200.00 he was quoted for the exact same job at another place. Whoa! That was a shocker! lol...

I'm still getting my workouts done and keeping the menus healthy! Yeah me. Some days I have to really force myself to get moving though, but once I get started its great and I always feel awesome when I'm done!

I went down to the bookstore and got myself a few new stories to read last Friday. I got 5 books in all. I should be done with all of them in, oh 4 more days, lol. Yeah, when I get books, I sit and read them until I’m at the end. I love a good book! I like stories with female main characters, so my latest finds are:

Darkness Falls by Marjorie M Liu –book 2 in her Hunter Kiss series *Good book
City of Souls by Vicki Pettersson –book 4 in her sign of the zodiac series *Good book
Then I started a series by an author I’m not familiar with but looked interesting:
Howling at the Moon by Karen MacInerney – book 1 in tales of an urban werewolf series *I’m about half way through this one, will probably finish by tonight lol. I like the style of the author, there’s plenty of sarcasm and humor.
On the Prowl by Karen MacInerney – book 2 of tales of an urban werewolf *not read yet
Leader of the Pack by Karen MacInerney – book 3 of tales of an urban werewolf *not read yet

My other series that I like have a couple of months or so before the next books are released... I hate waiting lol…

Well now that this has turned into a book report… I’m off to read! lol
