Just dropping in to prove to MYSELF that I am still alive. Swear I should be dead today, but seems it is not to be. It's finally raining here in what seems to be a larger storm system than we've had this week. We needed the rain badly as everything is so dusty, but I sure do wish I could have seen a few snowflakes this year. Maybe I can travel somewhere next year where I can see them.
Last night was date night with Alaska Man again. I have so much fun on these evenings. We talk about some of the craziest things and we have so much fun and get along so well. But I really need to be wearing blinders like they put on horses. Something to keep my mind in the present... but I always have been a dreamer and my mind refuses to relent. So as with all things I must adjust.
My mother cooked spaghetti last night and put WAY too much salt in it so I have had a 5 pound gain in water weight. I am terribly, uncomfortably swollen. I can barely even get my hand around my wrist I am so swollen. Misery is the theme for the day. It's a strength training day for me, but I will have to ride the bike - which I HATE - in place of my walking as I am not slogging through the mud!
Oh, and I had a little setback yesterday. I smoked a cigarette. I was so ashamed of smoking it that I hid out behind the chop shop. Well, my good for nothing "watch dog" walked up AFTER my parents rounded the corner on their walk. So I got full-on busted for smoking a stale cigarette. I laughed and so did they, but the secret is out and I need to get my butt back on the straight and narrow with that! Immediately.
And so I need to get my butt up and get some working out in before I want to lay back down and go back to sleep.
