Never really know what to put on the title...

So it's really hard for me to gain the motivation to write a post lately just cause I kinda feel like my life is pointless. I go to work every day. Come home. Usually watch tv with Clay...go to sleep. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Until it's the weekend when I feel somewhat purposeful. I can clean, cook, do some crafts...you know. But seriously? I don't know. I didn't realize it'd be like this. With school, I had this huge purpose in life. You know? GET MY EDUCATION! Blah balh. And I felt purpose in every day. Now, I'm like...what is the point of my life? I don't know.

On a lighter note, my friend Lori and I are making headboards for ourselves. Pretty much AWESOME! We started last night, will finish today. So stay tuned for pictures!

So...I've started making shakes for Clay and I each morning before work. It has CHANGED my life. It has gotten to the point that when I wake up, the first thing I think of is my shake. And how badly I want it. I crave them. Probably because there's nothing sweet in my diet...shakes are pretty fulfilling. Love em. So YUMMY! This is the recipe for two shakes: 1 cup yogurt, 2 cups berries, 1 cup soy milk, 2 TBS orange juice concentrate. YUM YUM YUM! Seriously- try it. I seriously don't think I can go a day without now...and if I do, I feel like something is missing.

Other things....Clay LOVES his new job. He doesn't really want to come home sometimes...which probably isn't good...but it's great. He loves it.

Dante is growing growing growing. Some lady at Petsmart came up to us and said, "OH he is TOO skinny...you aren't feeding him enough" and we said, "he's just a puppy still, that's how they look for a while...we feed him plenty", she says "Oh no. You don't. He is too skinny. oh and look at those eyes. they're all red! why are they so red?!" and we say, "they are just fine". She says, "he is way too skinny, feed him more." and gives us a face like we are TERRIBLE pet owners who know NOTHING about great danes. Right. So Clay and this lady are SERIOUSLY bickering as the pet trainer at our puppy class, looks in her cart, where her dog is and mouths to me, "WAY OVERWEIGHT!". About her dog. In her cart. Not on the ground walking, mind you. In her CART like a little BABY! So here she is, telling us how underfed our dog is, when her dog is freaking FAT! Then she shows us her dane on her phone, and tells us how he has champion blood on both sides for 3 generations or some crap. Then goes on to tell us how her poor dane had something wrong with him because his joints are bent. HELLO! It's cause you fed him too much as a puppy and it weighed his sensitive joints DOWN. Which is EXACTLY why you shouldn't over feed danes when they are pups! This is what Clay was trying to tell her. She was so foolish. We weren't bragging about Dante's great champion blood line....or that his legs are PERFECTLY straight. And that he's the best dane ever. We were boiling after that. Clay especially. I think he wanted to hit her. haha.

Anyway. That is all for now. Oh yeah- I think I might start yet ANOTHER blog. I kinda want to do a blog that is all about housewifey stuff. Crafts, healthy foods, sewing...ya know. Cause I've been doing that kinda stuff lots lately, and was thinking of doing it as a diff blog. Dunno. We'll see.

Pretty funny about the dog thing. Some people are so annoying sometimes. Maybe you could merge your food blog and your other idea. Cooking is a housewifey sort of thing so they would totally fit together.

I cannot believe that lady- some people just think they know everything- so stupid. I bet Clay was so mad. I'm sorry life is hard right now, life is like that, you just get in these little ruts of depression- you'll get out of it though. love you

I love the dog story and I probably would have told her not to bother me and snubbed her after that. I am sure Dante is PERFECT! So There! As for the life situation, things are pretty much the same for all of us. When you get as old a I you are grateful for the sameness. Grandpa and I would be glad if we didn't have other worries right now and life was the SAME with no waves. Make some goals and work towards them. A vacation, some new flavored shakes, more crafts, some week-end projects, just focus on some ideas they will come to you. lol grams

Totally get the pointless thing. Have been there. Just try to remember, you are working, which brings in money, which helps pay for a house/car/savings faster. You ARE contributing to things that matter. Smoothies, try putting spinach in. It doesn't have a taste. You can put handfuls in and not even notice. It just turns the shake green. But spinach is sooooooo good for you. It's a good way to get vitamins if you're not a salad eater. That's terrible about that dog person. Man, some people just have it wrong and need to BUTT OUT!!!! Just keep all your blog stuff here! I like having less blogs to check, rather than more. But that's just me. I like seeing all your projects.
