Fat and happy. Right now, that is me and I am okay with it. Actually, for the first time in my life my fatness is not a bother to me at all. Guess that comes from being around someone who brings the confidence out in you.
I have spent the past 3 days cleaning my besty's house. Not all day every day, but 3-6 hours per day. I have been cleaning things that have not been cleaned in a long time, and things that DESPERATELY needed to be cleaned, but hadn't.
This cleaning included: 15 loads of laundry, sweeping, mopping, vacuuming, spot cleaning the carpet where needed, washing dishes, cleaning everything covered in cat hair, dusting all surfaces including window sills, scrubbed the crud under the cat litter box (3 times) and shower stall, and finally the toilets. I decided to leave her closet alone once I got all this other stuff done. I mean, 3 days is a huge commitment for me, especially since I cannot do these things at my own home right now. But I don't have tile ANYTHING either. I now hate tile and don't want it in my house! LOL
While there I decided to take some full-length photos since I promised them for the first of the year and never got around to them. I am in my gross cleaning attire, which doubles as gross walking attire when it's hot out. LOL!!
Not the best pics in the world, but what do you want after I have been on my knees scrubbing showers and floors? Surely nothing eloquent!! But I do now realize my shorts are worn out and I need to buy new ones in a size smaller (Will go for XL versus L as I hate things sticking to me!). I have been able to get into a size 14 stretchy pant, a 16 semi-stretchy jeans, and a normal 18 (not 18W) jeans that DO NOT STRETCH AT ALL. So I am somewhere in the middle of these sizes, depending on who makes them. Hate to say that, but it is true.
And now that I have power-cleaned her home, I am going over there tonight to mess it up as Alaska Man and I are going to spend the night there. One last night of privacy before we have to give up the house. I called the cruise line to see what time the boat docks so I could be done straightening up and out of there before they come home. I will make it, but just by the skin of my teeth. This entails carrying over my own towels, bed linens, comforter, blankets and pillows, but there is no point getting her stuff messed up after I did all that cleaning, for sure!
And Alaska Man is appreciative of the private time we get together as both of our parents are in the homes we love so dearly! He needs the break from his parents and criticism, and he is so uncomfortable being in my house with my parents here. Says he feels like my dad is going to break down the door to my room or come crashing in at any minute, like I am 15 or something. Not like my father would ever even consider that... especially when he has been trying to sell me for the past 20 years!! He keeps telling my boyfriends that he will pay THEM $100 to take me off his hands. Nice, huh? Good thing my father is a jokester or else I may get my feelings hurt! LOL
So all, I am off to be a bad girl again tonight. Nothing better than being a little bad after a long weekend of work! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. And Ms. Gini, it's great to see you back from your vacation. To the rest of you, I am sure I will have a fun commentary after tonight. I may even see if he will let me take pics of us together so I can share. We'll have to see. I need SOMETHING to remind me that he is real and all that is happening is really happening. And when he does go home (sniff, sniff) I will look fondly over these pics and keep up the chatting and see if there is anywhere to go from here. I hope there is, but I am not making plans or counting on it. It's better that way!! (And my part-time boy toy is wondering where I have been for the past 2 months... LOL)
Peace, Love, and Fat-Bottom Girls You Make the Rockin' World Go 'Round,
