Last entry of 2018

2018 is almost over.

I had a really good year.

I hit 250+ workouts, exceeding my 2018 goal.
I bought, traded and was gifted A LOT of Rae Dunn.
I ran 12 5ks with Missy.
I finally did one of those painting nights and one of those craft painting things.
I went to 4818304818 Stir Cove shows.
Juana and John came home in May and we went to Warm Spring Ranch to see horses.
I saw Wicked again!
I went camping/boating with Nick's family again  for the 4th of July.
We successfully threw a surprise  60th birthday party for Peg.
I turned 38.
I went to the Iowa State Fair again.
Nick and his family moved to Storm Lake, or, as I refer to it, two hours closer to me.
Missy and I went to Minneapolis and saw TAYLOR SWIFT and the Prince home/museum and the Mall of America and the Spam Museum and the Buddy Holly death site.
I went to Glenwood's homecoming and BVU's homecoming.
Missy, Ryan, Natalie and I went to Los Angeles: The Ronald Reagan museum, Disney, Hollywood, Venice Beach and the ELLEN show!
I dressed up as Wednesday Addams for the ELLEN SHOW!
I celebrated Thanksgiving with the annual Christmas lights at my dads.
Juana and John and Nick's family all came home for Christmas and it was a beautiful thing.

2019 is going to be exciting as well. Today I joined a new gym (Genesis) and I am so excited to add new things into my workouts. I may be training for another half.....maybe. This fall. And also I want to get my nephew into running. I may not be successful in that.

I also have some new projects I want to start. I am going to do a "Celebrate Every Day" thing on Instagram. So if you don't follow me on instagram, find me! I am also going to work hard on praying every single day. I mean on my knees, at my bedside, praying out loud. Also, I got a ring for Christmas from my grandma and right now it is too big for my pinky and too small for my ring finger. So I want to lose enough weight for it to fit my ring finger.

Here's to the new year! I hope yours is MARVELOUS.

So last week I got pulled over. I was speeding. I was guilty.

But I was very nice to the cop, and he noted that on my ticket, so I felt pretty okay about the whole thing. He said I had a "good tone". I think he was hitting on me.

Anyway, so I decided (Nick told me to) to take the STOP class to dismiss the ticket. I took it online and got 100% on the test. Here is what I learned:

1. I am a VERY distracted driver.
2. Omaha drivers are literally the worst.
3. Giving road head is extremely dangerous.
4. Don't run over your kid.
5. I need to get so much stuff fixed on my car (tires, windshield, windshield wipers, etc).
