Interesting Weekend...

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Yep, it's true. He's actually gone. I don't know how many calls I got on his way down...LOL His trip was uneventful--boring, even...until the last 200 miles or so. One of the front tires started vibrating funny, got to the point it was shaking the whole car. When he stopped and got out to look at it, there was a bulge on one side. He started looking for a tire store, but it was late Sunday afternoon and he couldn't find one so he just took it slow. Next time he stopped to check it, he decided to change it to the donut for the rest of the way... and when he put the car up on the jack, the tire blew up in his ear, and the steel from the belt cut the webbing between his thumb and forefinger on one hand...

I talked to him a few minutes ago... his hand is throbbing, and his ear is STILL ringing, and though he's signed up for it, his insurance doesn't kick in right away... a bit worrisome, but what can y'do, y'know?

I just had a lovely lunch, a biscuit with tuna in a "cream" sauce (made with low fat milk, ok? LOL)... stuff I grew up on that he hates. Kind of fun, not having to consult anyone but myself! LOL

Hey, I also stood on the scale this morning... I've been working at it for a month now and hadn't lost an ounce so I didn't even register it on my SP stuff. this morning, I'm down THREE AND A HALF POUNDS!

Amazing, just a couple of nights (and one full day!) of sleep, and all that hard work caught up, FINALLY! LOL

I did a lot of stuff this morning and need to rest for a bit before my physical therapy--something I do NOT want to do with a full stomach! LOL--so I'll get back to you...

Be well!

P.S. Been playing with one of those "virtual makeover" sites. What do you think?

Does this even look like the same person?? *giggle* The photos I used are the latest ones I have, but they're about 8 yrs ago... Shelley and Aaron aren't so easily available these days... and just FYI, even the makeup is virtual! LOL

    So glad that Brian is okay. What a terrible way to finish his trip but a blessing that he wasn't hurt badly. Sure hope he is doing well and that you are used to the quiet of him not being there.
    Blessings, love and hugs, sweet Kathy!!

    What will he do without you??? I feel like your baby has left the nest. LOL.

    Congrats on the weight loss.

    I love the bottom picture with the dark hair, glistening lips, and sultry eyes. Definitely a sex pot. LOL.

    OMG! Glad that Brian is alright. Good grief!

    Congrats on the weight kicked to the curb. Way to go.

    As for the pictures . . . VAVAVAVOOM on the first one. That type of cut and hair color looks like it matches your personality! They are both totally gorgeous pictures.

    congrats Kathys on the weight loss. emoticon Do you think he has gone and will not be back. I would not be so certain yet. But I agree it is so much easier when you are by yourself, eat what you want, sleep when you want and so on. I found that when you have someone else in the house you still want to cater and please them. The photos are fantastic
    take care
