Still teetering at 170-171...it's as if the scale says:

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I have slackered off on the war effort of exercising though so the little buggers are creeping in my tush, back to the squats to keep them at bay. Break out the celery swords!!!!

We got loan approval on a house!! That's the good news. The "not so good" news is that it's for an amount just below what all the houses are selling for. hmm.

OH! speaking of houses....as some of you know my kitchen is awesomely pink. Tom sometimes dare to ask "when can we paint" with a reply from me of "when we move"..


do you see where this is going? We are going to look at a house, and sad to say, it will not have a pink kitchen.

Now, I said nothing about not having a pink workout room though...hmmmm.

Speaking of colors, we took the other kid shopping and I kept exclaiming "look at this one!" and "OMG, this is SOO cute" to these really beautiful vibrant colors, shoes included.

Tom says "why must you insist on being attracted to everything that is trackable by space satellite?"

But seriously, have you SEEN these??


does it NOT remind you of these days??


sighs....Oh, I can't wait to wear scarves and sew "vintage" hot colored outfits. I may never been seen with my husband again, but I'll look GOOOOOOD whether he knows it or not. LOL okay, so I'll look good in my own mind. Have I mentioned I'm probably going to be one of those eccentric older gals with lipstick stuck in her teeth and vibrant reddish pink hair and cool freaking hats?

or twisted.

Speaking of twisted, why does Boy George look better as a girl than I do?


probably because he wasn't at war with his own arse.

    hah I LOVE those shoes!!! And the rainbow colored ones I wanted from New Balance you can't find in stores. Every once in a while I see it on eBay for like nearly $200 and not in my size, either! But I did find some cute Nikes that are chocolate brown with the pink swoosh and the sole is pink, and then I found a pair of Adidas?? not sure the brand... they are a hot pink shoe with white sole. (neither are very comfortable right now - think I'm too heavy for them and they don't cushion as much!). But yea, I love lots of color. I don't have a pink kitchen or bathroom or nothing like that!! (I laughed at Tom's comment about liking stuff that is trackable by satellite!! Too funny!).

    Oh..., Boy George, or even that other guy, I saw him on TV had his own cable show - goes by "RuPaul" - drop dead GORGEOUS and makes every woman I know look terrible in comparison. But I think we are happier even if we are plainer - we have our family and kids that we are blessed with!! There's nothing really to compare us to Boy George (just imagine what he will look like trying to be in drag when he's 85 years old and wrinkled skin??? oh dear! My head will explode trying to visualize! poor guy!).

    Hope you get some cool shoes!!!

    Yes, a pink workout room would be awesome!
    Tom's comment about the satellite tracking, cracks me up!
    You? You always crack me up. My I wish you lived in this state with Kim and I. But of course I also wish Kim lived on this side of the state. At least Terry could be closer to the Steelers that way, LOL! And technically Kim would be closer to you on this side of the state.
    Ah, well, a girl can dream, right?

    Good luck with the house hunting. When you settle, I'll buy you a housewarming gift, such as this!

    Girl you always put a smile on my face! I think that the new house the workout space needs to be pink. Heck I can always fly out there and paint a bathroon black and red!! ROTFL!!!

    I always LOVE all of the brightly colored shoes and running gear. Sadly the cool looking shoes do not work for my feet so I always wind up with basic white with some faint ugly color markings in a men's...or I could always have the powder blue/pink gag me with a spoon women's shoes in my style...NOT!

    I love those shoes! Maybe I should buy some. At least my feet would look good while I walk the littles to the park. emoticon

    I have painted at least one room pink in every house I have ever lived in! I see a pink kitchen in your future somehow.

    Also they were playing your title song at my gym this afternoon so it's been in my head :D

    You continue to crack me up!

    I just bought myself a new pair of those incredibly light nike sneakers - black with HOT PINK trim. I totally wanted the neon coral colored ones, but they were out of my size.

    And as for the 80s...I TOTALLY rocked them with my acid wash jeans, and then come late 80s, early 90s with my spiral perm and very big hair. I have never been at peace with my hair since then. I am MADE for big hair.
