Today is Wednesday, day three of project "Get In Control Before Thanksgiving". I find the third and fourth days are usually the most difficult. The first two are exciting because I can see immediate differences in my fun areas. Today, however, all I want to do is eat some holiday M&M's and have pizza for dinner. The cravings will pass, I know because they always do, that is why I am taking it to the blog. I had a glorious piece of baked chicken that I made last night with some veggies and cottage cheese for lunch. Tonight I'll probably have more of the same with my whole grain bagel. I can't wait to eat that bagel. Before you start freaking out, I'm eating plenty of food and it is very healthy. I get to eat all the wonderful food groups, just not my favorite...candy!
In other news, my house is so incredibly clean right now! When I refer to "my house" I am excluding the office (scary!) and the guest room aka Kody's closet. Kody is working on the office today. Getting organized really makes me giddy. It is amazing what I can get accomplished at home when the boy is not around.

Living alone is going to be my big challenge over the next year. Our electric bill will probably go up quite a bit those months since I like to leave lots of lights on! My estimate is that Kody will do at least five months of rotations out of Tulsa....maybe more. Since I work, I won't be able to go with him like some spouses. Once he really knows what he wants to do we'll be able to plan that better. And yes, it is KILLING me not being able to help schedule his elective rotations right now. It is an intrinsic need of mine to schedule and plan for life. I'm a nerd.
Yesterday I forgot to post about something extremely important. I don't know what I was thinking. Saturday, the CFJ Crushers won our first pre-season co-ed flag football game with Tulsa Sports. Yes, I am a member of the CFJ Crushers. I love flag football. I think our team is going to be really strong. We are loaded with athletes! Our females can dominate all the other females in the league. We will be unstoppable. Our next game is this week at 2PM. I will keep you updated on our progress!

1. Tulsa officially has the cheapest gasoline in the country.
2. Florida is the SEC east champ and will dominate Alabama on December 6th and win the right to play the Big 12 champ for the BCS Championship. Ok, maybe that latter is a bit pre-mature, but I'm excited. Plus, the SEC Championship is on Kody's birthday. What a party!
Hip Hip Hooray!
PS. Erin and I kept the Graham girls overnight Saturday evening. I got to play mom to two girls under the age of three. It was a lot of fun, but I was so exhausted on Sunday. I discovered a talent that I do not have, styling hair on a two year old! I'm hopeless.

I keep singing "everybody's working for the weekend" in my head and visualising myself dancing in a barn just like in Footloose. No, that isn't the song Kevin Bacon dances to in Footloose, but in my 80's movie fantasy starring role I am dancing to that song....or maybe Maniac... Kody and I have a car dance to that song. We roll down the windows and jam. Sometimes you just need to dance it off.
Tonight we are watching Christmas movies and getting take out and I am really excited. I might as well move to a retirement home...

Kody started his OB/GYN rotation this week. He is on surgery this week. Unfortunately, due to a lot of junk going on with OSU Regional Medical Center, there have not been a lot of surgeries for him to be involved in. Hopefully that will change today. He has been in the clinic a lot the past few days and has seen quite a few "post birth" patients. Needless to say, he is not too excited about he idea of a "natural" birth. I won't get into the reasons why, but you can use your imagination. His descriptions are too graphic to write about.
Oh yes, one great thing that came out of the election yesterday...my uncle was re-elected to the state senate in Florida. Congratulations Uncle B! He won by over ten points. YEA! I'm encouraging him to run for senate and then president in 2016. Obama did it after he was in the State Senate and a two year senator, right? I want to run his campaign. I haven't told him that yet, but I'm sure he'll say yes! Why wouldn't he? I would be amazing. If not, I might run for office myself....I haven't decided what yet, but it will be something awesome.

Costume party with our class from church, of course only three of us dressed up. I was the good old standby....cowgirl. Kody and I were going to be Tim Tebow and a Heisman Trophy (trophy wife!), but he couldn't come. Boo.
