I had a dream a few years back. When I woke up, the only thing that I could remember from the dream was a beautiful stained glass door that I came upon in my dream. I was amazed by how beautiful this door was. The glass was black, pink, grey, and clear. There were beveled pieces, circles, triangles. It was very unique.
I thought that the only reason the door stood out was because years before, I took an interest in stained glass, and made some small pieces.
Well. Last week, on Monday, the door from my dream made an appearance in my real life. I didn't notice it at first, but, later, I was floored when I saw it.
Here's what happened. I went to help my friend (the bad luck cloud friend) at his home. We met at the Home Depot, picked up some supplies, and I followed him to his home. When we arrived, we unloaded my car, and he, of course, had already entered his house, so the door was open when I approached it. We got right to work. I started the patch on the ceiling, and then while waiting for the patch to dry, I patched small holes in the walls and then we painted. Most of the work we did was in the rec room, which was in the basement.
We took a break, and went out for lunch. It was when we returned and were walking towards the house that I noticed the door. To be honest, it kind of freaked me out. I didn't say anything to my friend, and we went back to work. There is no question in my mind that this was the door in my dream.
I had to return the next day to finish the patch on the ceiling, and again, while we waited for the patch to dry, we continued to paint. At one point, my friend actually brought me over to the door and showed it to me. It was a special order door that was designed specifically for this friend. It was then that I told him that I had dreamt of his door.
I've known this friend for nearly five years, but we only ever said hello and had casual conversations. I had never been to his house, or even been anywhere near his neighbourhood, so there's no chance that I would have seen the door in passing.
So here's the thing that's been bugging me since I saw the door... what is the significance? Was the dream trying to show me something? I honestly don't think that it was a coincidence that I dreamt of this door. It's just weird.

Yup, it's true. I did not officially weigh myself on Saturday morning. I was busy being taxi driver to my kids on Saturday and Sunday morning. I like to weigh myself at the same time for the official weigh-ins, and since it was well past the 9:30 time that I usually weigh myself, I just didn't bother.
Friday's weigh-in was 249.2, which was the same as my last official weigh in.
I am confident that I will have a loss by next weigh-in, since I've gotten back on track with drinking all my water, and with logging all my food.
I've been pre-occupied with other stuff in my life (mostly helping the bad luck cloud friend) that took me away from my routine, but I have decided that I can't afford to let my commitment to myself (and SparkPeople) slide anymore.
I'm not far from my goal, I want to reach it well before my original date, in October, so that I can set a new goal for myself. Right now, I'm concentrating on reaching that 50 lb marker as soon as possible. That's only 13.7 lbs away. I can definitely do this!
I've signed up for the sweatsuit to swimsuit boot camp, and plan on sticking with it for the whole month of May -- that should show immediate results when combined with everything else.
Have a fantastic day!

Alright. So I'm a curious person. I like to know stuff, no matter just how gross it might be.
I would like it noted that:
1. I do NOT chew my toenails! In my blog, I mention the smell, not the taste! (Admit it - SOME of you were probably wondering about this!)
2. I am not doing any kind of special 'sniff your toes' stretching exercises. Although, now that I have a lot less belly flab, it is much easier to reach my toes to sniff them (I said SNIFF not chew!)
3. I like Pionettia's idea for a "GROSS" team. LOL. Somehow, though, I don't think SparkPeople would allow such a group to exist for too long. (I can get pretty gross, but I am positive that there are people who can beat me!)
4. I do look at (but I don't do an in-depth study of) my bodily fluids, excretions, secretions and whatever comes out of me. I look because they can tell you a lot about your health -- for instance, snot should be clear -- if it's green, or any other colour there is likely an infection in there.
5. I WAS going to write something about belly button lint today, but decided not to, because you'd probably all expect it. Hmmmph. Way to spoil my fun. **Sigh*
Now, back to the business of being gross...
Can someone please explain to me why the accumulation of ear wax varies? Also, if you have enough ear wax, can you put wick in it and use it for light like a candle? I wonder if there's a market for ear wax candles. Just imagine, scented ear wax candles - (toe nail clipping scent anyone?), or maybe some special ear wax birthday candles!
: - )
Have a fantastic rest of the day!

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!
