1. A couple of days ago, I munched a few handfuls of almonds for snacks. Unfortunately for me, the consequence was a sore heiny the next day, if you get my drift. I complained to my husband, who said, "Oh, my poor baby! I'm sorry you have splinters in your trumpet!"
OMG, I nearly kilt myself laughing. And, yes, I'm quite the musician, I tell you!
2. I was feeling pretty happy today - I sold some stuff out of our garage that we certainly didn't need, and I got two hundred bucks! I told him, you know, 'finding' money makes me feel 'frisky.' He offered to leave a trail of ones and cheese and crackers up the stairs...
[let me add that these were items he thought I should give to GoodWill or GotJunk - and I told him they were WORTH MONEY - HA!]
3. I remarked to him tonight that I hadn't weighed myself since before we went to Atlanta. I had several weeks where I wasn't feeling well afterward. First, I got a horrendous sinus infection, and the aftermath of the antibiotics on my gut nearly kilt me. Also, I've been going through a steadily changing course of blood pressure medications - the side effect of one was making me feel horribly lethargic for nearly two weeks. All I wanted to do was sleep or read and watch movies on the couch.
I figured, the goal of Spark is to change LIFESTYLE, without the emphasis on DIET. I want to be healthier, not just SKINNY. BE PATIENT. Get healthy first.
One of the problems I've had over that last few weeks is that if I start coughing - which is usually in the morning, because of the residual effects of the damned sinus infection, I start gagging. And then I'm over the sink.
So tonight I said, "I'm at the same weight loss I was at before I quit weighing!!!"
He said, "Wow, all that puking is paying off!"
I said, "Hey, that's in the morning, and it's just dry heaves!" (Maybe I'm pregnant, El Seabee?)
And he said, "Well, then, you need to make your puking more productive."
I told Parker to bite him on the ass, since he was over the sink brushing his teeth at the time.
I have to say, despite our absolutely MISERABLE weather, I had the most energy today that I've had in ages. I've been active every day, and, uh, I ate the most pornographically HUGE steak two days ago...
THIS JUST IN!
After the sad demise of our robin grand-chicks, we have bird news.
The last few days, we have had a Western Bluebird flying around like mad outside my lair window, which is above the front porch.
Tonight, I spied a birdie in the Ye Olde Nest.
Reasonably sure it's a Western Bluebird - you can't see the wings in this photo, of course, but I've seen them flying around and you can't miss the blue wings.
They're a 'cavity dweller' - and of course, we've stolen their cavities. :(
But the birdie seems to be happy sitting on the old robin nest, even though some shet-bird of a human was out taking flash pictures.
