Happy Friday evening everyone! For most of us it means it’s finally the weekend…congrats on making it
Not surprisingly, the winner for today’s Marriage Ref Friday battle goes to the people who rinse and scrape their dishes before loading into the dishwasher! I’ve read a little bit on both sides of the argument, but rinsing and scraping keeps the dishwasher running well longer. Like I said, this is one thing that Nate and I both agree on, so that’s a good thing, but there are definitely some unknown people I work with (really, I have no idea who they are) who would do well to rinse the oatmeal out of their bowls before loading them into the washer. But hey, at least it’s making it INTO the dishwasher in the first place, right?
So today was spent in front of my TV watching New Moon and in front of my laptop signed into my work email. It rained all day long except for, oh I don’t know, it started snowing:
Now I suppose I’m not surprised that it’s snowing at the end of April. I mean, I do live in Colorado, right? But I must say, Colorado threw me for a loop this time! Even Keira was scared to step foot outside! Come to think of it, she’s never had to experience rain before, so this whole experience is new to her. I decided to have leftovers for lunch (a leftover Sausage, Pepper, and Onion Hoagie), but didn’t take a picture because my camera wouldn’t focus. I did get a shot of dessert though!
This was one of those things that sounded a LOT better at the store than it actually tasted. Not that I would turn it down if someone offered it to me for free, but I certainly wouldn’t pay money again for it! That being said, I did enjoy the cool ice cream on my throat.
Speaking of my throat, I just spent 2.5 hours at the doctor’s office. Where the nurse so kindly (sarcasm) gave me a play-by-play every 2 minutes on what/when/where/why/how she was doing things. And where I was told that, according to a preliminary lab test, I do not have strep throat and therefore will just have to “wait it out.” Honestly, I’m not surprised, but I’m still waiting to hear back on Monday or Tuesday for the final results of the lab test. The good news is the doctor thinks I’m on the up and up and that the worst is behind me. This weekend I’m just supposed to drink lots of liquids, get lots of rest, and hopefully feel better come Monday!
So I need to let y’all know something: at the doctor’s office they weighed me, per usual, and I was really REALLY surprised by the number on the scale. And not in a good way. At the moment I’m really battling fat talk and am really hurt by it. I know that number doesn’t define me, but I would think that with my working out and taking more care with my eating that the number would be different. If anything I’ve gained weight, and frankly that scares the crap out of me. I don’t want or need to go into detail, but I just thought that I’d be honest and authentic about where I’m at right now. I could really use some encouragement, and if I’ve learned anything about this community, it’s that you guys can provide it.
I hope you guys have a FABULOUS weekend, and I’ll be back on Sunday with a recap of this evening and tomorrow
