I had this awesome blog all written out about how there's a reason for everything that happens. I clicked on "post blog entry" and it disappeared, and I got a blank blog page. *SIGH*
Since I just don't feel like typing all that out again, I'm going to leave you all with a new curious tidbit of grossness.... (because I can!)
Every day, I either have a bath or a shower -- this means that my feet get washed every single day, right? So why is it that no matter how much I scrub my feet, the stuff that I clean out from under my toenails stinks?
: - )
I'm done spreading my brand of sunshine for today!
Have a great rest of the day!

Did that get your attention? Great. Just be aware, though, I am not kidding about the contents being gross (and immature), so it's not too late to close the window!
I've been helping a friend do some work around their house these last two days. (Cloud of bad luck friend that I mention in an earlier blog I wrote.) I patched an area of a stippled ceiling that had undergone some water damage from a burst pipe. Part of the work involved to repair the patch was to put fresh drywall mud over the crack, and when it dried, I had to sand it.
Sanding drywall mud is not the most fun thing to do. Especially if it's on a ceiling. I had drywall mud and dust EVERYWHERE. When I got home, I had a nice long soak in a hot tub. It felt great. Then the steam from the hot water loosened up all the snot in my head (in the sinus cavities) and that's when the fun began.
Drywall dust snot is pretty cool, actually. It's snot, but it's white, and the drywall dust mixed with it changes the consistancy... it makes it.... stickier? I don't know if that's it exactly, all I know is that if you didn't know that it was snot, and there was a big enough piece of it, you might play with it thinking that it was silly putty or something like that. Except it's not -- it's whitesnot.
Ok. Whitesnot sounds like a pretty good name for a band.
I'm done being immature and gross now.
Have a great rest of the week!

Well. I would if I could, but I can't. I did go out and buy a new scale... I brought it home, unpacked it, set it up... and it didn't work! LOL. That was on Monday... just one of the many "bad luck" incidences that I have endured this past week.
The good news is that things are getting back to normal -- it was simple.. I just declared that I had had enough of this, and banished the bad luck from my life! I told it to take a hike! That very same day, things started getting better. The repair bill for the car is minuscule compared to what I was expecting it to be... (not just the wiper control arm, but there were issues with the cv boot which turned out to be very, very, very minor, but could have been in the two thousand dollar range to repair... )
I also have to confess to not being a very good SparkPerson this week. I ate everything and anything that I wanted to eat, and didn't even think about holding back. Ah well. I guess it's just as well that I have no scale to weigh myself... I'd probably cry if I saw what all that eating resulted in! I also did not drink any water at all this week. Not good. I have HUGE zits on my face that I haven't had since November, when I started drinking my water! I can't believe one week of no water could cause my skin to revert back to greasy and zit-ty so quickly. BLEH!!
I have a week to get my backside into gear and get back on track. Back to drinking water today, and back to eating and recording (which I have also not done this week) all of my food intake.
I'm off work on Monday and Tuesday. I am going to do some work around the house -- more painting and installing baseboards and casings.
Have a fantastic day!
Life... IS GOOD! (I haven't been so good at making that proclamation lately... but it's true.. life really is good!)

No particular reason, just thought it was time... *sigh*
My streak of bad luck is continuing. Last night, when I parked my car, I somehow managed to break the control arm for the windshield wipers. I don't know what's worse, the fact that the arm was dangling by a few wires or that the bloody wipers are stuck "ON" all the time... driving home with NO rain, and the wipers going full force. ARGH.
My motorcycle died yesterday too. *Sigh* It was turning over, but it wasn't starting. I kept trying to start it, and as a result, I killed the battery... but before it conked out from lack of juice, I got a HUGE gunshot-like backfire... and then the battery died. I just shook my head, went back into the house, took off all my bike gear, and took the car to the park and ride... half way there, I realized that I left my wallet, cash, etc in the bike jacket pocket.... BLEH.
I'm waiting to see what's next. Whatever it is, I think I'm done with it all now... ENOUGH ALREADY.
Have a fantastic day everyone!

This week's number: 249.2 ... that's a 0.2 lb loss (yes, I'm counting it!)
I broke my scale. ARGH. I stepped on it to weigh myself, and after the number appeared, I realized that I hadn't selected my profile to save the weigh-in, so I got off the scale, selected my profile, and when I stepped on the scale I heard a loud "CRACK" and then got an error message. (Fill in explicit swear word here.)
So now I have to go buy a new scale -- again. **SIGH**
Something's going on with my 'universe'. All of a sudden things seem to be breaking down around me. As I was standing up after inspecting the scale, I knocked a picture off the bathroom wall -- I caught it on time before it hit the floor, so no damage there, but man. My whole week has been a series of blunders and breakdowns. It's insane.
The really sad thing is that somehow, in my brain, I have convinced myself that all of this seemingly bad luck is rubbing off on me from a friend. This friend has has been having a rough time of things, and I have been doing my best to keep spirits up and have been providing support and help whenever needed (without being overbearing). Now, all of a sudden, things are getting crappy for me.
I know that it's irrational for me to think that the little dark cloud over this friend's life is beginning to cast a shadow on me. Still, I can't help thinking that this is what is happening, and to be honest, I don't like it at all. LOL.
Ok, enough mumbo jumbo from me.
No official weigh in photo this week, since I didn't get to register the weigh in. I'm off to buy a new scale... hopefully my good luck will be back from its little vacation soon.
Have a fantastic day!
