How is everyone doing today? Are we all groaning about it being Monday already? I partly am. Well, actually it's more just groaning about it being raining and icky today. And after such a gorgeous afternoon yesterday. What gives?!

Yesterday, after we had already established it as being a good weekend, I started to feel better again, so we took advantage of the enjoyable weather. Peter, the gal, and I headed to a local park for some playtime. We hit up the swings, the slide, and...the sidewalk! Makenzie faceplanted on the concrete as we were walking over to look at a rec baseball game that was in progress. Poor girl screamed bloody murder for a couple minutes, that is until a dog walked past and she got distracted by saying "dog dog dog dog dog woof woof dog dog dog dog" and we knew she was okay. She even smiled for her battle wounds pictures, bearing her slightly scraped nose and forehead with pride.


We headed out not too long after that to hit up the grocery store for a few items on the way home, as well as Subway for dinner. $5 footlongs are back and I love that for a perfect cheap and easy dinner. Eaten while watching this movie...

Curious Case of Benjamin Button

I liked it. Even though it was long, it didn't seem to drag on. That makes it good in my book. I am pretty easy to please with movies. Books, on the other hand, I am a tougher critic. My current book will be getting rave reviews from me though (review coming soon). I was actually bummed I was too tired to read more of it last night since we hit the sack right after the movie.

That brings us to today. I woke up feeling better. Not perfect, but all the sick feeling was in my head, which I can definitely handle. I decided to hit up spin this morning since I missed working out last week. I always go by the above-the-neck-sick being okay to work out with. It was a good class. I was winded and tired way more easily than normal, but I got through and felt better afterwards. And as the day has gone on, I continue to feel better. Awesome 🙂

And I'll finish this post with...the answer to Fun Fact Friday!!! The correct answer is....

#1! Okay, not something to be proud of so I don't know why the exclamation point. But, it is true. So, the story behind it...I had been dating this guy for awhile and we were better off as friends, but I guess we both were too afraid to end the relationship and hurt the other. So, what did I do? I cheated on him. Somehow it made sense then. And I didn't just cheat on him. I basically started up another relationship with my on again off again ex. The one I was crazy about for the 7 years of together/apart madness. He actually had a long term girlfriend too, but we just couldn't stay away from each other. We were each other's first loves and for some reason could never quite get it together, so opted to find any way to make our relationship full of drama. Enter cheating on our significant others for over a year. Smart, right? Eventually, the guy who was my boyfriend at the time and I did break up to be just friends and we are still on a friendly basis. But I never told him and I don't believe he has any idea to this day, over 6 years later. Me and my fellow cheater were together with lots of drama another 1.5 years after that, then off again, and then attempting to be on again when I met Peter and realized what a true man was like and ditched him for good.  Yea, whirlwind. So long story short. I was a b**ch and the whole "once a cheater, always a cheater" idea is not true. 😀

Any more questions for me?? Question post coming tomorrow so please ask away 🙂

    Wow, that was an intense story lol. Your life is like a movie!

    I’m sorry to hear about little Makenzie’s face plant 😕 Glad she’s ok!

  2. I actually liked that movie too. I am not easy to please with movies. I have a very hard time sitting through them. I made it through this one though!!! Can’t wait to hear about the book you’re reading. I’m a huge reader.

  3. Genie says:

    Poor Mak!!! So cute that even banged and bruised is she’s still her happy smiley self!

  4. Your daughter is such a trooper! Thank goodness for neighborly dogs to distract the cries of a wounded tot.

  5. lisaou11 says:

    Tina! You are human afterall…for awhile I was beginning to think you were super Angelwoman.

  6. Therese says:

    Awww poor little thing! My little niece is a real rough and tumble kind of girl and is always ending up with scrapes and bruises. I’m sure people think my brother beats her or something lol.

  7. I never saw Benjamin Button- glad you liked it! And my husband Ryan is a Subway fan: he eats it EVERY. DAY. for lunch. The boy likes his routine. Glad you’re feeling better after spin! I’m trying to think of a question to ask. . .

  8. I loved Benjamin Button. My b/f did not agree though. He thought it was too long. I’m a huge F Scott Fitzgerald fan though, so I’m sure that fact tainted my opinion.

  9. Hey girl! I don’t think you are necessarily a b*tch – I did the same thing in trying to find a relationship that fit me – almost the exact same thing. While I would never, ever condone such a thing, I chalk it up to being young and not really knowing what I wanted.

  10. aww poor thing!!! At least she looks happy, now! kids are so resilient.

  11. eatmovelove says:

    Thank you for coming to my blog!! Yours is great – love the name 🙂 Your little Mackenzie is adorable! I look forward to reading more in the future girl !

  12. Awwww poor little girl!! 🙁

  13. Tammy says:

    Thanks for your comment! I’m glad Makenzie is ok. Leave it to a dog to cheer her up. 🙂

  14. Your daughter is so sweet with her little red nose. Glad to hear she was side tracked by the dog. Thank goodness for diversions!

  15. Vee says:

    Shame about your baby girl, hope her face heals quickly!
    So glad you are starting to fee better! I also like that movie by the way, I though it was an interesting concept. 🙂

  16. Poor baby! I voted for her of course and posted it on my blog too!

  17. lindsayruns says:

    Poor baby girl…though she’s still adorable even with scratches.

    I like your freaky fact. I hate when people try to cover up their flaws in otherwise journal-like blogs. I struggled with similar issues in the past for a long time, at one point I was dating 3 people all at once! But b*tch is still pushing it, I don’t believe that you are or were.
