Friday Fragments


Very random, rushed, hopefully short and sweet fragments... join in with Mrs. 4444

***I have not wavered off of this diet ONE BIT! It has been hard. Especially when I was stupid enough to make brownies for a sleepover with my nieces and nephews! They smelled SO good! I have worked out 3 times this week and walked, I'm guessing, 5 miles at the zoo. Sadly, the diet has not been the silver bullet that I was hoping for- damn. 10-17lbs? Not even close- more like 1 or 2, so far. I have 2 more days left. I plan to keep going and see what the results are.

*** The diet has made me a bigger bitch than normal. I've been on edge all week!

***The zoo- we went to the zoo this week. I am not a fan of the zoo. Maybe I'm just an old cranky lady, I don't know. We walked about 5 miles during 3.5 hours and saw about 20 animals- big whoop. Animals stink. Kids are brats. Especially kids that are relatively unsupervised and came with their school. My son fell into the Camel's yard. He was sitting on the fence for a picture (that my sister was taking- because I suck) and he fell back, over and in and scratched the hell out of his back! My daughter- the rather clumsy one, tried to keep up with my nephew and son and jumped over a rock and fell on her face and nicked it up pretty bad, too. I'm not a fan of the zoo.

***I got DVR! I watch a lot of TV and I really WATCH it. NOT DVR or TIVO. Everyone has told me how great this little invention was and my cable company was offering a free package for a year so I'm giving it a go. I'm a creature of habit and I don't like it or get it yet. Hopefully it will grow on me.

***I have been very anxious this week- maybe it's the lack of carbs, or the loud kids, or the list of things 'to do' that won't stop. I have not been able to get around the blogosphere the way I like and feel very left out. Forgive me.

***We are going to a party this weekend with some old friends that used to be neighbors. I am very nervous. We all had so much fun together when we were neighbors. Then people started moving away. Some kept in touch and some didn't. I guess I'm hoping I don't feel left out and that not much has changed.

***My dog is the kind that NEEDS to be groomed! He has not been groomed in a couple months because my husband is bothered of the cost. I am sneaking him to a groomer today because he's beginning to grow dreadlocks and I'm beyond the stage in my life where it was cool to have a Rastafarian dog.

***GO MIZZOU! They made it to the Elite 8. I will be watching on Saturday to see if they can beat U-Conn to get into the Final Four- how exciting!

*** Twisted Lisa- I picked YOUR name out of my fancy pink bowl for my giveaway! Contact me and I will give you details. Congrats! It was totally legitimate- but I was completely rooting for you- YEAH!

Visiting Zoos are also not one of my favorite. Happy weekends

I am much older than you but...I have been on this (fill in your favorite expletive) **** diet for six months...walking three miles a day, pilates two or three times a week and I am stuck at a five pound loss...
it makes me want chocolate really bad!

Mary@Holy Mackerel said...

I'm not on a diet, and I'm still a bitch...

Kori said...

I love zoos, sorry. : ) And I laughed out loud at Mary's comment.

Soxy Deb said...

Best thing about the DVR is that when your super busy with everything else, you CAN DVR your shows and then just watch them in your down time. Stop laughing, you COULD cut out one of your pee breaks you know?!

Have a great weekend!!

Quirkyloon said...

LOL

I'm with Mary on this one. I'm not on a diet and still a bitch.

Under the Influence said...

I kicked and screamed my way to a DVR and now I can't live without it. Ok, maybe I could, but I don't want to.

The Mom Jen said...

Diets and lack of carbs will do that to you. Know you are missed around the blogosphere and Brittany and I were thinking of you this morning, hoping all is well!! *mwah!*

DVR will grow on you, it does take a bit!

Love ya, have fun this weekend

Jen said...

Once you go DVR, you will never go back. Trust me. You will be addicted in no time.

I cracked up at your zoo story. Not at the fact that your kids got hurt but just the way you told the story. Our zoo is horrible so we hardly ever go, but the national zoo in DC is close by and the kids love it. (The fact that it is free helps).

Do not feel anxious about being MIA this week. You are missed but life happens and we all understand.

Brittany said...

OMG a DVR! You will never cook or wear pants AGAIN!

Miss Yvonne said...

Oooh, I bet you will love your DVR! We held off getting one for a long time and now I can't live without it. I hardly ever watch something live because I can't stand to watch the commercials.

P.S. So glad to hear of someone else that thinks zoos suck. Blech...dirty, hot and filled with jerky kids.

Scope said...

I didn't "get" the whole DVR thing really, until I got realized that I had 5 "What Not To Wear" episodes (don't judge) and I ripped thru them in 3 hours one Saturday morning.

Now shows are on WHEN I SAY THEY'RE ON!

Evolving Mommy Catherine said...

I think that the Zoo is fine for the first h our I am there and then it just starts to get so boring and lame and boring.

Terri said...

that giveaway is so rigged! Im turning you in to the blogging police. And Yes, I'm so jealous.

Scary Mommy said...

I'm the biggest bitch ever when dieting. Or when my clothes don't fit. I guess I'm just a bitch. :P

amelia bedelia said...

Some of my co-workers did that diet and lost really big. But your right, you don't lose big until the last day. They felt crappy, too.

Twisted Lisa said...

1. I am not a fan of zoos, they are stinky and filled with POO.
2. DVR will take over your life. Pretty soon you will try to rewind real life and the radio in the car.
3. I am on Atkins and I am SuperBitch, but that may just be my divorce.
4. I WON I WON I WON!!!!!!! Thank you soooooo much!!!!!!

Annie said...

I'm cranky b/c I've been sick with a cold and sinus infectin for 8-EIGHT-8 freaking days. It blows.
Al is an MU grad, so even though out NATIONAL CHAMPS have been knocked out ( as expected- they are YOUNG & rebuilding) we will root for MU and the BIg 12!

Linda S said...

DVR's are better than sex and ice cream. really.

Amy Amy Bo Bamey said...

I love my DVR so much I just got a 2nd one for our bedroom!

I tape everything and then fast forward through all the commercials. If something is on TV I want to watch I will let it tape and then watch it 30 minutes late so I can skip the commercials! LOVE IT!

Eudae-Mamia said...

The DVR - oh honey - way cooler than any other adult toy I've tried.

You will love it.

I'm sorry about the ups and downs of everything right now. Hope the neighbor party was able to lift your spirits a little. Em
