This.....is American Idol

What is it about Ryan Seacrest that just ruins everything? =) Anyway, while American idol is on in the background, I thought I would do a quick post. Didn't get a chance to go to the gym today as I went up to see the mega mansion in Fremont (and the parentals too). Overall, I feel pretty good and I'm not sore. I'm not too out of shape, surprisingly enough. =)

Tomorrow Tim and I are going to see our tax guy. Fingers crossed we get money back this year instead of owing a buttload like last year....

back in the saddle again

Today was my first day back exercising after taking a break due to my prolonged lung/nose ickyness. It felt good to get back on the elliptical again. My legs are a bit sore but overall I feel pretty good. I think that a good nights sleep is in the air...=)

Oh yeah, I wanted to add to my list of non-resolutions from the beginning of the year:
-Take more weekend trips with my husband

Will keep you posted at we travel a bit more this year. =) First stop, hopefully, Tahoe.

iPhone v4

Yes, you read the title correct. I'm now on my 4th iPhone. On Thursday night, at La Fondue, i wanted to take some pictures. So, I turned on the camera and the screen turned green, like night vision. Bummer. When we got home, I made an appointment for the next day to talk to someone at the genius bar at Valley Fair. When I got there, the guy said "I have to talk to my lead repair guy." So, he disappears into the back for about 5 minutes and then comes back and says that they can't replace it because of "cosmetic damage". "You must have dropped it so many times that the leads to the camera are loose." That'll be $250 to fix it. UMMMMM No. Anyway, long story short, I got him to give me a new phone in the end. I think it might be a refurb but I don't care because the camera works. So yes, I'm now on my 4th phone. Let's all pray this is the last one.

Thanks to Tim

As per his blog, Tim is a great cook! It's true that our meals have been a little less than nutritious over the past few days (half a pint of S'mores Ben and Jerry's). I love that he does the shopping and most of the cooking though. But he's right, how can I work 2 jobs and cook as well? Plus, he is getting to be quite the "Jamie Oliver". (That's what I call him in the kitchen) What exactly is a "knob" of butter, anyway?

As a side note, we are going to La Fondue tomorrow. And yes, my taste has returned. =) I'm excited about celebrating Valentine's Day on the actual day. And yes, I know that it is an over-commercialized day, but I'm really looking forward to it. Melted chocolate, here I come!

Wild Kingdom

So, the hamsters have been fighting all night. We can't tell if they are playing or if they are really fighting. It all began when Tim put new food into their cage....Hmm....don't know if they are trying to establish dominance or what but it's a little be unnerving as they "scream" when they fight. Eek! They seem to have calmed down now as Tim scattered their food all over the cage. Let's hope this episode of Wild Kingdom was enough...

PS- this you tube video is not of our hamsters but this is what it looked like:

I did it!

Yes folks, the short hair has arrived. Now I told some people that I would cut my hair when I got pregnant, but let me go on the record to say that I am NOT pregnant (yet). I'm just too lazy to style long hair. There, I said it. A weight has been lifted (literally).

The O'Connor sickness, end of month 1

Yes it is true. We have been sick for 1 month now. I'm almost completely back to normal, I just can't taste or smell certain things. It's super frustrating as I love food! Eating is kinda frustrating when you can't taste it. It better be back by the 14th as we're going to La Fondue and I want to taste every pricey morsel! =)
On a side note, I've decided to cut my hair. I think that I have finally come to terms with the fact that I need to cut it as it is getting unmanageable now. I wanted to grow it out until I got pregnant but I don't think I can last any longer =) We shall see. I might lose my nerve!
I will update after I go to the hairdresser.........stay tuned!
