I've talked about being hit by lighting before. I used to love to watch electrical stores but when one of those beautiful white bolts of light hits you they kind of loose there alluring beauty. I now jump every time I see a flash. its completely involuntary. I would love to overcome this fear and learn to enjoy those beautiful summer thunderstorms so full of electricity. i wonder if this is something that I will ever get over.

Do you know how long its been since I went to Silver Dollar City inBranson. Not since my late teens. They serve this awesome homemade ice cream with fresh strawberries and this wonderful cherry lemon aid. BransonGetAways.com is a good site to look at for Branson vacation packages. They even have this feature where you can bid on vacation packages thats kind of cool. They have gold, silver, platinum packages and a family package. They all look pretty good to me, not that I can afford to go anywhere.
I used to love the funnel cakes at Silver Dollar city as well. I can remember seeing a show with diving mules in it too. Boy those were fun days. I am way to old to ride the rides though. I tried that at the county fair once and woke up feeling like I had been beaten up.
I've been getting thinner lately. It hasn't come from taking a diet pill like Leptovox or anything like that. It comes from getting up early and getting my but into the fitness center at work and keeping my heart rate elevated for 20 or 30 minutes 4 or 5 times a week. I've gotten smaller all over. I don't know how much weight I have lost because its not the time of the month when i get on the scale but I am curious to find out.

I've been running 3 or 4 times a week on the treadmill before work. I love it. I've worked my way back up to 18 minutes and 40 seconds. I increase the length of each run by 5 seconds each time I do it. I'm slowly burning fat once again. I'm sure I would burn fat a lot faster if I took diet pill but I'm concerned about how they affect my breathing and heart rate.

Ofcourse running on a treadmill is nothing like running in the dark on a nearly deserted road. Its just you in the darkness, the road, the water trickling in the ditch next to you, a dome of stars over your ead and big black cedar trees on both sides. I used to compare it to running through a tunnel of stars.

I am so tired right now. Its nearly 1am, i have to be up in 6 hours so I can make it to work in time to spend 40 minutes in the gym and shower before I clock in. I spent most of my evening wrapping and hand addressing 30 books that have to be shipped off tomorrow and my back s killing me. Yet I find myself writing about cheap auto insurance to add just a little bit more money to what I already make. I should be complaining though. My book store is growing when the economy is in recession. Thats a very good thing.

I walked into the fitness center at work yesterday to find it full of promotional products. They were calling it a book fair but everything was super expensive and they had more than just books on the table. I was a little more than irritated. I run on the treadmill of a morning before work and I couldn't run with people walking in and out of there looking at books.

It looks like it might be a pretty day. I don't think there will be any garage sales though. Not in December, surely. The past two weekends there were only two or three a weekend. I plan on hitting a salvation army in Clarksville in the morning.

Its morning like this when I think about trying to buy Phentermine. I am so stiff and miserable and I don't feel like even trying to job or anything this morning. Maybe if I feel better tonight I will run before I leave work. its so much harder to do that after work though because I have less energy and it makes completing that 20 minutes a whole heck of a lot harder. I get winded quicker and my legs get weaker faster. I have such a headache today though. I just can't bring myself to get on that treadmill before work this morning.
