Random Friday

Feeling a bit odd. Usually when i have a big emotional blowout it lingers for a few days. Im super close to ordering myself an iphone with virgin mobile for my birthday (next friday) I have stayed out of the smartphone game because im a cheapskate, but its affordable at $200, and its what i was planning to spend on a kindle. im still reluctant, and i know its partially because i dont feel well about myself body image wise. but im turning 40 and i feel like i should do something to make it special. esp since when i turned 30 my grandpa went into hospice. emoticon that was sad, we were pretty close.

I asked my husband to look at the phone (since i know zero about it really and he has one his work pays for) he said it looked good and what color did I want? Oh goody my husband was going to buy me a present. Surprised because he had bought his own present last month for his Bday, but ok cool. He puls out the credit card, not the debit card. Uh, not cool. I said I have cash Id rather if its not put on the card. He gets miffed and whatevers me. Says well you better order it quick if you want it to come in time and closed out the page. I said' well i guess it doesnt matter that much' and he said ' well it matters now' and that was that. Now I dont feel like I want it anymore. . Oh by the way he was super tired and cranky when this exchanged happened. But then I felt sad and bad, like he was trying to do something nice and I offended him. So I tossed and turned and had a hard time falling asleep and didnt sleep well. Well that was 2 days ago. Starting to feel like yeah I still want it, even tho its going to be $10 more a month than I paying now. Im just sick of my dinosaur phone.

In startling news of the day, my husband has started a juicing diet today. For the forseeable future. Hes tired of being overweight and out of shape. Hes never tried anything like this before. I say more power to him. I just hope it doesnt cause him to have a bad attitude, lol-who am I kidding?

Well, have to get up at 6am tomorrow for the cheer team fundraiser yard sale, yippee! Goodnite!

    I'm sorry about your Grandpa, but hopefully 40 will be much better than 30. I say go for the phone and celebrate! It's great that your hubby is taking steps towards better health, you guys can work on it together.

    Happy (early) Birthday!

    I love my iphone. I have several fitness apps that I use every single day and couldn't imagine life without! If I didn't have an iphone, I would at least want an ipod for those apps. Just a thought? Depending on your phone carrier, you may be able to get the phone for free by signing up for a two year agreement, you just have to cover the difference in your monthly bill by adding the data plan?

    As for the juicing diet the husband is interested in, good luck to him! What a challenge! Has he seen the movie Fat Sick and Nearly Dead? I think like anything where you are trying to quit or remove something from your life/diet (smoking, caffeine, and so on) you have a withdrawal ugly period...so the mood initially may not be pretty, but if he gets past that he should start to feel better than he has felt in a very long time (enter "good mood" here).

    I hope you had a nice weekend!

    If the phone will make you happy - go for it.

    Forty isn't such a bad birthday, and personally it was better than 30 for me.

    Remember you are a competent, sassy, sexy, independent woman who deserves to be happy.

    Have a great day

    His mood is most likely not from anything you did or said. Sometimes , as you know, people just vent on the nearest person...Hey glad you at least go the phone! emoticon
