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!
