Early B-day Dinner

Every year about this time, I get treated for dinner by my parents. Tonight I choose Smokey Bones. I love their grilled chicken flatbread sandwich and I order it every time I go. It is so very yummy. After ordering, my parents pulled out the gifts. They gave me the gift from my favorite bro-an exercising mat. It's just what I needed to do a couple of my Tae Bo tapes.

Then they pulled out a bag of goodies from them. Inside I found a beautiful charm bracelet. On it was one charm with my son's name and birth stone on it. How very thoughtful of them. I also found my newly fixed 14K gold bracelet. It had broken a few weeks ago and my mom had her jeweler fix it. Besides the jewelry in the bag, I found a CD-the soundtrack of Roswell. As most of you know, I LOVE this show. They also bought me season 2(they couldn't find season 1) of Roswell on DVD! Ohhhh, I love it!

I'm not sure when I am going to be able to watch it. I don't have a lot of time during the day, but I could watch an episode around 4. That was the time it was on the SciFi channel. I'm still not sure if I am going to exchange season 2 for the first season. I will eventually buy season 1, but I am not sure if I want to watch the seasons out of order.

After dinner, we(my mom, dad, hubby, son, and myself) all went to Walmart down the street and spent way too much money! I will have to let my hubby G blog about that later. It's all his fault. Heehee!

Life is grand when you are spending money you don't have...yet.

Trin's Weigh In

Well, I did pretty well this week even with eating pizza. I am down to 195 with a 3 pound loss. I can handle that since I was only expecting to be down 2 pounds. Every pound counts, you know.

Since I am down to 195, that means that I have reached the half way point of the challenge. And, it happened before the first month is even up!




Make your own at here.

Good Stuff

We(as in my hubby's side of the family) all went out today to celebrate my up and coming b-day. We went to one of my favorite restaurants, Max & Erma's where I had their tortilla soup and a baked potato. Very yummy!

My pop-in-law got me a really great gift. He bought me a collection of Creed tunes on CD. I love this band because they are so passionate with their songs. I somehow feel at peace when I listen to their music. This collection also includes a dvd that has some of their songs that were performed in concert. Good stuff!



Creed rose to the top of the rock world through relentless touring and huge success at radio that yielded eight #1 hits. Over the decade they spent together, they built a massive fan base. This collection brings together the hits that fueled this phenomenon for the first time, with a bonus DVD featuring all nine music videos the band created with three additional performances never before available to fans. Together they display the true essence of what made the band members’ collaboration so poignantly special to the millions who embraced their sound.

The hubby and I are in the process of finding a low cal pizza, which we both have been craving. I have been looking online and comparing the different pizzas and their nutrition content. I think we are going to go for Pizza Hut's lower fat pizza pie. It's about 150 calories per slice. I will try not to have more than 3 slices. Time will tell.

Life is grand with pizza!

So, what enquiring minds want to know is...
"Did you get the Pizza Hut pizza?"

and

"How much pizza did you eat?"

We did get Pizza Hut and I got ham and double pinnapple on my half. The thin crusted pizza was pretty good.

And, I had the three smallest pieces while my son had the three largest pieces of our half. I was a good girl.

What Type Of Cheese Are You?


I have a cubes personality:

Conscientious and detail-oriented perfectionists, Cube lovers can be so devoted to work that they have trouble finding the time to relax and spend quality family time. They are most happy when they are in total control of their environment, and tend to avoid unexpected or nontraditional experiences whenever possible. This hesitancy to delve into new territory extends into food choices, with most cube lovers preferring simpler, more traditional American cuisine over spicier, bolder flavors. They also tend to be conservative in their choice of clothing and colors -- being more concerned with looking professional and sensible than fashionable. Although Cube lovers can be cautious and restrained when meeting new people, they make loyal friends and partners once they achieve a sense of trust in their relationship. Hobbies may vary depending on age and where they live, but most cube lovers enjoy quieter pastimes like reading, watching movies and enjoying the simple company of loved ones -- that is, when they can find the time! Learning to take a few moments out of their busy day to enjoy an energizing snack, such as (Warning-product placement ahead) Sargento® Mild Cheddar Cheese Cubes may be initially difficult but will provide a much-anticipated break once it becomes a habit. Those who prefer Cubes are most romantically compatible with others who also prefer Cubes.

Send Out a Prayer

Please everyone, send out a prayer for Guru. He is in the hospital because the pain from his kidney stone. He blogged about it here if you want to read the background story.

All I know is that he had to have it surgically removed. I'm sure you will get the full story when he comes back. I'm not even sure if he will have to stay the night at the hospital.

So please, send out a prayer for Guru. Thank you all!

The Way It Is

A man was sick and tired of going to work every day while his wife stayed home. He wanted her to see what he went through so he prayed: "Dear Lord, I go to work every day and put in 8 hours while my wife merely stays at home. I want her to know what I go through, so please allow her body to switch with mine for a day. Amen."

God, in his infinite wisdom, granted the man's wish. The next morning, sure enough, the man awoke as a woman.

He arose, cooked breakfast for his mate, awakened the kids, set out their school clothes, fed them breakfast, packed their lunches, drove them to school, came home and picked up the dry cleaning, took it to the cleaners and stopped at the bank to make a deposit, went grocery shopping, then drove home to put away the groceries, paid the bills and balanced the checkbook. He cleaned the cat's litter box and bathed the dog.

Then it was already 1 p.m. and he hurried to make the beds, do the laundry, vacuum, dust, and sweep and mop the kitchen floor. He ran to the school to pick up the kids and got into an argument with them on the way home. Set out milk and cookies and got the kids organized to do their homework, then set up the ironing board and watched TV while he did the ironing. At 4:30 he began peeling potatoes and washing vegetables for salad, breaded the pork chops and snapped fresh beans for supper. After supper, he cle aned the kitchen, ran the dishwasher, folded laundry, bathed the kids, and put them to bed.

At 9 P.M. he was exhausted and, though his daily chores weren't finished, he went to bed where he was expected to make love, which he managed to get through without complaint.

The next morning, he awoke and immediately knelt by the bed and said, "Lord, I don't know what I was thinking. I was so wrong to envy my wife's being able to stay home all day. Please, oh please, let us trade back."

The Lord, in his infinite wisdom, replied, "My son, I feel you have learned your lesson and I will be happy to change things back to the way they were. You'll just have to wait nine months, though. You got pregnant last night."

From PJ. Thanks girlfriend!

"And Then...I Ate The Bowl!"



The hubby and I had Tim Hortons the other day since he had $5 in gift certs from C-mas. He would have spent it on a flavored cappuccino, but with our diet that would not be possible. So, we decided to try something new.

I must say that I had one of the best fast food meals of my life. I had their chicken stew...in a yummy wheat bread bowl. It was so delicious! There was so much chicken and all the veggies were cooked just right. The thick sauce from the stew tasted wonderful on the wheat bread. OH MY!

It's was not to bad on the calorie scale. The soup has 233 calories and the bread bowl has about 213 calories. It was perfect for dinner and I almost couldn't finish it. I might go back and get another one next week. Everyone has to try this!

Life is grand when you can eat your soup bowl!

BlogShares

BlogShares is a fantasy stock market where weblogs are the companies. Players invest fictional dollars on shares in blogs. Blogs are valued by their incoming links and add value to other blogs by linking to them. Prices can go up or down based on trading and the underlying value of the blog.

I found a link to this site through The Reluctant Housewife(I hope you don't mind that I am stealing this post idea). According to BlogShares, my blog is worth $3,815.65. Seriously, check it out here. At the bottom of the page, you will see two lists- incoming and outgoing links. Simply find your blog and click on the link to see how you are worth.

Well, how much? I could just post the worth of the half a dozen people who visit me, but I am too lazy. Life is grand that way!

Another Grandma Story

My crazy grandma is at it again. I hope everyone remembers the Christmas fiasco. Well, this time she called asking for my hubby, son, and myself to come over to her home to celebrate my up and coming b-day. Let me type that again...she wants my family to drive the 40 min to her house to celebrate MY birthday.

She was also asking about what kind of cake I wanted(before I even said that we could come). I told her that the family was on a diet and that we were not eating sweets right now. She told me that her hubby(g-pa) was also on a diet because of his diabetes. His doctor told him that he could splurge once a year- on his birthday. This was the lead in to a wonderful guilt trip about her wanting me to eat cake on my special day.

Okay, first off, if I am going to cheat on my diet, it's not going to be some nasty cake the day before my birthday...with her! If I cheat(on my diet) it will be with people I enjoy being around and I will probably have a mocha moolatte... or a huge hot fudge sunday... or a large chocolate chip cookie...or peanut butter ice cream....mmmmmm. But not cake! I don't even like cake all that much. It's okay, but not worth cheating on my diet to eat it.

Anyway, I am supposed to get back with her to see if the family is available. My hubby has "looked" at our schedule and we are NOT available at this time! He has no desire to drive the 40 min to see her (of all people).

Don't get me wrong, I love my grandma very much. I just wish she loved me back. She doesn't know anything about me or my family. She would rather give guilt trips then to compromise.

Oh well, life is grand that way!

Funny Story

Two women are new arrivals at the pearly gates and are comparing stories on how they died.
1st woman: I froze to death.
2nd woman: How horrible!
1st woman: It wasn't so bad. After I quit shaking from the cold, I began to get warm and sleepy, and finally died a peaceful death. What about you?
2nd woman: I died of a massive heart attack. I suspected that my husband was cheating, so I came home early to catch him in the act. But, instead, I found him all by himself in the den watching TV.
1st woman: So what happened?
2nd woman: I was so sure there was another woman there somewhere that I started running all over the house looking. I ran up into the attic and searched, and down into the basement. Then I went through every closet and checked under all the beds. I kept this up until I had looked everywhere, and finally, I became so exhausted that I just keeled over with a heart attack and died"
1st woman: Too bad you didn't look in the freezer. We'd both still be alive.

Exercising



I love my daily exercising to my Tae-Bo tape. Here's the problem...I usually ended up either punching myself in the face or kneeing my boob. Most of the time, it is the latter. I love the knee crunches, but I my boobs are sore afterward. I just get really into my workout. I get into the exercising mood and I forget about where my knees are going.

I should buy a protective cup for my boobs. The bra is just not cutting it.

You should be able to buy a really tight sports bra to hold 'em in to where they don't hang down/out so far, that's the purpose of sports bras for women with breasisis to stopemfromfloppin'. I have a tight sprt. bra that holds my D/DD b.o.l.t.s. in pretty snugly. Just a suggestion.

My Neighbor

I have disliked my neighbor from the day I meet...er saw him. He is a pain in the you know where. Here is his story. Every summer he competes with the neighbors to have the shortest grass. If he were to mow on a Mon and I mow on a Wed, he would be out the next day(or even that day) mowing his yard. He hates seeing my grass shorter than his. He would also mow into my yard to make his yard look bigger.

But, then winter comes. All of a sudden what was part of his sidewalk is now mine. That's right, in the summer, part of my yard is his and in the winter part of his sidewalk to shovel becomes mine. Can you see why I don't like this guy? I hate even looking at him. He makes me so mad.

He is also the paper delivery guy for part of the neighborhood. My hubby and I ended up canceling our weekly subscription because we got the paper 1-2 times out of the week. What a butt-munch he is (the neighbor, not the hubby)!

I won't even go into what his girls do. I won't mention that they like to ring my door bell and run or the fact that they ride their bikes through my yard. No, no...I won't talk about them.

Good news though. I noticed that my nasty neighbor put up a for sale sign in his yard!!! They will soon be gone!!! I can't wait! I will pray that their home sells quickly.

Life is grand when the neighbors are moving!

Blogger ghraper said...

When he came over the other night to ask me if I'd fix his computer for free, he mentioned that they were building a new house. I could hardly hold in my joy! I was like, "Oh really?!" "Well good for you!" Then once he left our porch I put him out of my mind where he belongs. Thanks for the reminder that they're moving and taking those bratty kids, and chimney smoking mother who pick weeds out of our yard with them. I just hope we get some good replacement neighbors, or we're gonna have to start looking for a new house.

Stupid Chain Mail

My crazy sis is at it again. Today she sent me another chain letter. Here it is:

The One You Love
Don't ever leave the one you love for the one you like, because
the one you like will leave you for the one they love. Tonight
your true love will realize how much they love you between 1
and 4 in the morning. Tomorrow the shock of your life will
occur. If you break the chain you will have bad luck for 10 yrs
if you don't pass this on to 15 people in 15 mins. If you get
it back it means you're a true friend.
You are a true friend!


If this email isn't crazy enough, she sent it to my mom and my grandma(among 13 others) who are both happily married. What was my sister thinking? Does she really believe in this stuff? I guess I am not her true friend since I didn't send it back to her.

Btw, I would love to know who starts this crap.

Life is grand with chain mail!

Worst Day Of The Year

LONDON - Is the midwinter weather wearing you down? Are you sinking in debt after the holidays? Angry with yourself for already breaking your New Year's resolutions? Wish you could crawl back under the covers and not have to face another day of rain, sleet, snow and paperwork? Probably. After all, it's Jan. 24, the most depressing day of the year, according to a U.K. psychologist.

Dr. Cliff Arnall's calculations show that misery peaks Monday. Arnall, who specializes in seasonal disorders at the University of Cardiff, Wales, created a formula that takes into account numerous feelings to devise peoples' lowest point.

The model is: [W + (D-d)] x TQ/(M x NA)

The equation is broken down into seven variables: (W) weather, (D) debt, (d) monthly salary, (T) time since Christmas, (Q) time since failed quit attempt, (M) low motivational levels and (NA) the need to take action.


Reality starts to kick in
Arnall found that, while days technically get longer after Dec. 21, cyclonic weather systems take hold in January, bringing low, dark clouds to Britain. Meanwhile, the majority of people break their healthy resolutions six to seven days into the new year, and even the hangers-on have fallen off the wagon, torn off the nicotine patches and eaten the fridge empty by the third week. Any residual dregs of holiday cheer and family fun have kicked the bucket by Jan. 24.


"Following the initial thrill of New Year's celebrations and changing over a new leaf, reality starts to sink in," Arnall said. "The realization coincides with the dark clouds rolling in and the obligation to pay off Christmas credit card bills."

ByJennifer Carlile


I found this article interesting. Read it in it's entirety here. Do you agree? Did you have a bad day today? I definitely didn't have the best day even though life is grand.

Stat Counter

I love looking through my StatCounter. Not only will it tell you how many people come to your site in a given day, but it will tell you if your blog comes up in a search engine.

My blog is number 5 if you do a search for "girls rule boys drool" in google. It is also number 5 if you search for "dodge thong", also in google. For a while, if you searched for "teresa heinz kerry mother's day pictures" in yahoo, my blog would be on the first page(it has now slipped to number 11 on page 2). I find all this quite amusing.

A Carrot, An Egg, And A Cup Of Coffee.

The carrot went in strong, hard, and unrelenting. However, after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak.
The egg had been fragile. It's thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior, but after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became hardened.


The ground coffee beans were unique, however. After they were in the boiling water, they had changed the water.

Which are you? When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg, or a coffee bean? Think of this: Which am I? Am I the carrot that seems strong, but with pain and adversity do I wilt and become soft and lose my strength?

Am I the egg that starts with a malleable heart, but changes with the heat? Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup, a financial hardship or some other trial, have I become hardened and stiff? Does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and hardened heart?

Or am I like the coffee bean? The bean actually changes the hot water, the very circumstance that brings the pain. When the water gets hot, it releases the fragrance and flavor. If you are like the bean, when things are at their worst, you get better and change the situation around you.

When the hour is the darkest and trials are their greatest, do you elevate yourself to another level? How do you handle adversity? Are you a carrot, an egg, or a coffee bean?

From PJ. Thanks girl!

Misc.

I would love to know why my cat purrs after my alarm goes off. It's the cutest thing. Every morning my alarm goes off at 6:51. My kitty then wakes up, cuddles up next to me, and purrs. She does the same thing when the alarm goes off 9 minutes later. She is so cute!

I want to thank Guru for letting us borrow a monitor. I appreciate it since I can't go through a day without a computer. The hubby and I still will probably get a new one since I like things big. The bigger the better! Hubby will look into finding one comparable to our old monitor this week.

I had a great time making the doll below. She started off having tall black boots, a cute skirt, a little shirt, and red hair. Then I found my girl Trinity and I had to change her. Here is a link to make your own. The second doll below is for Guru. Do you know who she looks like? From what movie?

Weigh In

Well, I only lost 2 pounds last week(I'm at 198). I didn't really expect to lose much more than that. When I started my diet last year, I lost about 15 pounds the first two weeks. Then every week after I would lose anything from 1-5 pounds. So, I really didn't expect much weight loss last week and I am okay with that. If I can lose a steady 2 pounds every week, I would be a happy girl. I would be down 45 pounds by the end of April! Sounds great to me.

How did everyone else do?

In Memory

In Loving Memory of You
by Debbie Heydrick

Quietly I'm remembering you
in the silence of my heart.
Each thought of you, a treasure
while we are now apart.

At times I'm filled with longing;
Your face I'd love to see,
To feel your warmth, to hear your voice,
to have you here with me.

But God has a plan; He created you
and numbered all your days.
May he hold you in His loving arms
and surround me with His grace.

With the hope of reunion in Heaven one day,
I entrust you in His care.
Cherished memories of you live on in my heart.
Your life is a gift we share.

In Memory of Jean, my mother-in-law: March 22, 1958-January 23, 2004
We love you and will see you soon.

Stupid Monitor

Okay, I have to make this quick. My computer monitor is going crazy. I have wanted to blog for hours now, but the monitor is constantly changing the size of what I am viewing. Everything keeps getting squeezed together into the center of the screen. It's very annoying! I am having a hard time even reading this because the words are all smashed together. I hope I will be able to do one more blog today, if the monitor will allow it. As of right now, I am not even sure I will be able to post this. I guess only time will tell.

Life is grand with a crazy monitor!

Did G-Wie take a look at it when he was home for a few minutes earlier? Is the monitor itself fried?

G looked at it last night and this morning. He is not sure if we need a new monitor or not. It is working okay right now, but who knows how long that will last.

American Idol Barbie

Oh My Gosh!!!! I just saw the commercial for a new American Idol Barbie! I am so excited! Can't you tell by all the exclamation marks?! Wow, this is a must have! I can't believe that this has come out in time for my birthday! Hint, hint!

There are three different Barbies to choose from, all with their own song that they sing! Miss blonde Barbie sings "Oops, I Did It Again"! I love this Britney classic! Tori sings "What I Like About You" and Simone sings "Ladies' Night"! If I buy all three, they can have a singing competition using their karaoke machine and I can be their judge!

Here is a pic of the beautiful Tori! Could her legs beeee any longer?!


Here is Barbie on stage! Notice how hip she is with one pink shoe and one white shoe! She is soooo cool!


Life is grand with exclamation marks!!!

Words To Live By

Accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue.

Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.

Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.

Eat a live toad in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.

If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.

It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

Never buy a car you can't push.

Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, or you won't have a leg to stand on.

The early worm gets eaten by the bird, so sleep late.

When everything is coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.

Birthdays are good for you; the more you have, the longer you live.

Ever notice that the people who are late are often much jollier than the people who have to wait for them?

If ignorance is bliss, why aren't more people happy?

You may be only one person in the world, but you might be the world to one person.

Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.

We could learn a lot from crayons: some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names, all are different colors and have to learn to live in the same box.

From PJ. Thanks girl!

A Real Post

Sorry, I haven't posted anything of real substance for a while. I just love posting quizzes and interesting questionnaires. Always good times!

Today was a pretty good day since I didn't have to watch the youngest boy. His mom's school was cancelled today on account of snow. Yeah snow!

I was able to do some households chores since the red-head and my son played so well today. I cleaned both bathrooms and pick up my bed room. I also did some laundry since the red-head peed through his pants. At least he was well behaved today. Speaking of being well behaved, the two boys were not themselves. They played together quietly for a few hours. Who are these kids? I know this won't won't be the case come Friday, but it was nice while it lasted.

I should have a wonderful day tomorrow. I go to the autistic boy's home in the morning and then I only have the red-head to watch all day. I just love Thursdays.

I will be dropping my son off at my mom's house later this evening. He loves his grammie time. I also love that he has one night a week with her for some bonding time. It also gives me a chance to have some me time.

I hope everyone else has a good Thursday. Just remember, life is grand!

PDA

entrancing
You have an entrancing kiss~ the kind that leaves
your partner bedazzled and maybe even feeling
he/she is dreaming. Quite effective; the kiss
that never lessens and always blows your
partner away like the first time.


What kind of kiss are you?
brought to you by Quizilla



holding hands
hand holding - you like to be in constant physical
contact with your special someone but you don't
want to take things too quickly.


What Sign of Affection Are You?

Blogger Guru said...

My kiss, though I disagree that I kiss this way, the quiz is what kind of kiss are you and I guess that as a personality I am:
You have a dominant kiss- you take charge and make sure your partner can feel it! Done artfully, it can be very satisfactory if he/she is into you playing the dominant role MEORW!

My PDA is:
hand holding - you like to be in constant physical contact with your special someone but you don't want to take things too quickly.

(pete's note)
I don't know about that too quickly. I remember what Pastor Tom said about hand holding and it leading to bigger things. "BRING THEM ON!", I say.

Weigh In

Well the hubby and I got a new scale last night. I knew that our dial scale was not accurate, but I weighed less on it then our old digital. Well, when I weighed myself this morning on the new scale, I was at 200.2! My dial scale was off by 10 pounds! I feel like I am starting over. I know I have lost 15 pounds so far, but when I add 10 pounds to my weight, my goal weight of 160 seems even farther away. At least I am a quarter away through the challenge.

I did my Tae Bo this morning and my waist is feeling it right now. My stomach muscles are sore, but it's a good pain. I haven't felt them since...umm never. I need to keep this up so my stomach becomes somewhat flat. I will never have a completely flat stomach since having a baby has stretched it out.

Oh well, diet life is grand!

I forgot to check in yesterday with my "progress". I only lost 1 lb last week. Very discouraging since I am definately eating less than I was and eating healthier foods and working out more and only lost one friggin' pound!!! Whatever! So I'm at 224. I think I'm just doomed to be fat forever!

Visual Model

Since I don't like posting my picture(I have only done it once), I thought it would be fun to share the virtual model of myself that I made using this(click on the 'give it a go' link). It was a lot of fun and the model is pretty close to what I look like. I think my boobs are a little bigger but it only gives you two options for boob size.

Here is the front of me(with the big belly that is slowly going bye-bye).


The side(again with the big gut).


The dressed front of me(don't I look great in black).


And my cute butt.


I will post another model of myself in a few months after I lose all my belly weight. I think everyone should so that we can see before and after pics. You don't have to, but it would be fun!

I had made a virtual model of myself around the time I was doing Atkins. I don't know if he is still around or not. I know that it didn't look like my body because it was being very generous with the weight distribution (and not generous enough with the bulge in front! ;-) )

Well it's Monday again which means it's time to post our weigh in results. I am not sure if my loss is accurated since our scale is not working properly. I think I am done 6 pounds. I will be buying a new scale later today and I will have another weigh in for myself tomorrow.

Good news! Princess J let me know that she lost 3 pounds! She only has 7 more to go. Good job girl!

Vast, red and ready to turn into a lorry at the slightest provocation, you are a robot to be reckoned with.

Tapes that turn into panthers. And other friends who are dinosaurs. Dinosaurs who jump out of planes. Will you have my children?

Done!

That's right ladies and gentlemen, I am finally done with my first major crocheting project. I made an American flag afghan for my favorite sister. Her home is decorated in Americana, so this blanket will match perfectly.

I have been working on this for about two months. It was a little tedious, but I love working with my hands. I hope my sister enjoys this.

Here is a pic taken of the new blanket just minutes after it's completion. What do you think?

Name Something

I found this on Mostly Chick:

Name something you would NOT do in public, that most people would do:
Pick my teeth, even with a tooth pick.

Name something you WOULD do in public, that most people would not do:
Pick a wedge. I have no problem with the few people who do this in public. It's a way of life if you are wearing a thong.

Name one recent fashion statement you could do without:
Baggy pants on men. Hey, I like seeing your butt! Don't hide it, be proud of it!

Name one article of clothing you love though you know it's wrong:
I love tank tops, but it's so wrong for me to wear them since my arms are quite fat and droopy.

Name one thing (just one) you generally find physically attractive about the opposite sex:
It's so hard to pick just one. I guess I will have to say a man's smile, especially if the smile is directed toward me.

Name one thing (still, just one) you generally find attractive physically about the your own sex:
I'm a boob girl. I just love boobs!

Pick my teeth. If there is something between my teeth, I can't stand it. I have NO problem whipping out the floss in public.

Name one recent fashion statement you could do without:
How about girls wearing "nighty" type camisoles as regular shirts!

Name one article of clothing you love though you know it's wrong:
Probably my warm-up pants. They are so comfy, but Clinton and Stacy would not approve.

Name one thing (just one) you generally find physically attractive about the opposite sex:
Straight, white teeth.

Name one thing (still, just one) you generally find attractive physically about the your own sex:
I always check out people's butts. Men and women. If I see a girl with a nice tush, I'll say so.

Bras

From Princess J:

A man walked into the ladies department of a Macy's and shyly walked up to the woman behind the counter and said, "I'd like to buy a bra for my wife.

What type of bra?" asked the clerk.

Type?" inquires the man, "There's more than one type?

Look around," said the saleslady, as she showed a sea of bras in every shape, size, color and material imaginable.

Actually, even with all of this variety, there are really only four types of bras to choose from.

Relieved, the man asked about the types. The saleslady replied: There are the Catholic, the Salvation Army, the Presbyterian, and the Baptist types. Which one would you prefer?

Now totally befuddled, the man asked about the differences between them.

The Saleslady responded, "It is all really quite simple...
The Catholic type supports the masses.
The Salvation Army type lifts the fallen,
The Presbyterian type keeps them staunch and upright, and
The Baptist makes mountains out of mole hills.


Btw, have you ever wondered why A, B, C, D, DD, E, F, G, and H are the letters used to define bra sizes? If you have wondered why, but couldn't figure out what the letters stood for, it is about time you became informed!
(A} Almost Boobs...
{B} Barely there.
{C} Can't Complain!
{D} Dang!
{DD} Double dang!
{E} Enormous!
{F} Fake.
{G} Get a Reduction.
{H} Help me, I've fallen and I can't get up !


I was in the double dang category, but with losing weight I am now only a dang. Sorry boys.

I Did It!

I went through my Tae Bo tape without stopping! There is a part about 10 minutes in that I can't keep my feet going. I stop for about two seconds to catch my breath and then I am back at it again, feeling the burn. But today was different. I worked through the pain and burning in my legs and finished the tape without a single stop. I felt so great afterward! I will definitely have to try it again tomorrow.

Exercising is grand!

This guy was waiting in the doctor's surgery after having some tests done. The doctor returned from the laboratory and said:

"There's some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that you have brain tumor that not even our best expert can operate on. The good news is that this surgery has just received a license to do a new brain transplant procedure that's never been tried before."

Luckily for the patient there had just been an road accident nearby, where unfortunately a young couple had been killed.

The doctor said, "You can have either the man's brain or the woman's brain. The man's brain is $1,000,000.00 and the woman's brain is $30,000.00."

The guy couldn't help asking why there was such a big difference in price between the male and female brain.

The doctor replied, "the female brain is used."

Blogger Guru said...

Ah, yes. A funny joke proves the superiority of one sex over another.

What do women and tiles have in common?
If you lay them right the first time, you can walk all over them forever!

Here is a quote for you...
"While the gender gap on the Preliminary SAT (PSAT) exam has recently been cut in half through revisions forced by FairTest legal action, female college applicants continue to fall further behind males on the SAT, on which similar 'reforms' were not implemented.

According to the College Board's 1999 College Bound Seniors, the SAT gender gap is now 43 points, the third consecutive year it has grown wider. In fact, the gender gap is at the highest level since the exam was revised in 1995, in part to reduce what test-makers labeled 'gender related prediction differences.'"

So, they had to change the test to make women more able to keep up with men's test scores. In the military, they have lower physical standards for women than men.

I'm just stirring up trouble, but I am just offering some hard facts that men rule the physical and the mental.

January 14, 2005 11:24 AM

 
Blogger Trinity13 said...

When I said girls rule and boys drool, I was talking about the people in our little challenge. We girls rule because we made it all the through the workout tape without stopping. You boys can not say the same. So in that sense, we women(Lo and myself) physically rule over you boys.

As far as the mental goes, any man would be a fool to try to debate with me. So, I rule over you mentally too.

A quote for you:
"While 55% of the students who take the test are girls, only 39% of the National Merit Scholarships (for which the PSAT is a qualifying test) ultimately go to girls. Furthermore, because girls actually receive, on average, higher grades than boys in both high school and college, critics have argued that the PSAT is under predicting their performance.

As a remedy, the PSAT plans to add a test of writing skills, an area in which girls tend to outperform boys. The boys have traditionally had the edge in the math section."

And another:
"One might expect boys' average PSAT scores to be higher precisely because fewer boys take the test: perhaps boys with marginal ability are less likely to take the test than girls of comparable ability"

Btw, it may be true that "In the military, they have lower physical standards for women than men", but women go through childbirth. Childbirth!

When you said your comment, you backed it up by citing a joke in which it is claimed that a man's brain is unused. Hence the reason for my counter-statistics.

Secondly, I would put my endurance up against either yours or Lo's in a head to head challenge. I have the mental fortitude to continue on through the pain. I cannot speak for the other men in the challenge, but I believe that I could endure childbirth. I have a very high threshold for pain.

The quote in which you state the hypothesis about fewer boys taking the test has no basis in science or fact. It is merely one person's guess as to the reasoning behind a true statistic. How about this hypothesis? Men perform better because they are better under pressure. Men get less emotional under stress and are able to take a 'winner take all' one shot test to gauge their academic abilities. Women crumble under that pressure. Perhaps the reason for the lower grades has more to do with the men's intelligences being bored to death in class and their realization that high school grades don't matter and college grades matter even less. How you perform on tests is the ultimate indicator of most things on an adult level. Those assertions are based in as much science as the ones that you quoted.

Furthermore, I believe that the foolish person is the one who chooses to engage ME in a debate, as I have the breadth of knowledge to take arguments to entirely different levels.

January 14, 2005 2:07 PM

 
Blogger Guru said...

G,
First of all, you have only seen her work out. Not Lo, not I, so you have NO frame of reference with which to make your comments except your desire to suck up to your wife. Secondly, I know that YOU aren't calling me a fool when I am clearly OWNING this debate with FACTS instead of just randomly quoting opinions.

Furthermore, the biggest insult is actually upon you because her assertion that girls rule and boys drool was (at her explanation) directed at the collective. And it is yours and Drifter's physical fitness that is dragging down the collective of men in this challenge.

If that is indeed the basis of the argument, I have to relent because of that very thing. But, her initial statement was about all men (who are biologically stronger as a group) then followed up by a joke against all men's intelligence. That is what I was defending. I am practically weaponless defending you two.

G, please stop bringing a (plastic) knife to a gunfight and remain a bystander so that you don't get hurt.

Blogger ghraper said...

Gu,

Don't get your pannies in a bunch pal, the way I see it (I believe I'm allowed to have my own opinion) Trin threw out a harmless taunt and you went immediately on the defensive. Upon first reading your comments I thought surely that the shovanism was being expressed in jest. Apparently not. She replied with a joke. That could have been the end of that. But no, someone drew their weapon and opened fire. Here I am at this party with my polypropylene cutlery, and bullets are flying.

You're right, I overstepped my bounds by speaking about the extent of your (and Lo's) workouts. I'm sorry for that. My frame of reference is as an outside observer of the debate which ensued, but it seems that everybody is fair game and subject to your onslaught. All of my comments were intended to lighten the mood and to bring the comments back to their origin not to "suck up" as you say. I don't need to do that.

There was one comment, though founded in truth, really came off as arrogant:

"Furthermore, I believe that the foolish person is the one who chooses to engage ME in a debate, as I have the breadth of knowledge to take arguments to entirely different levels."

My goodness man! We all know you're a brain.

Sore Knees

The autistic boy had a birthday party last night at Magic Mountain. This place has games, putt-putt, go-carts, batting cages, and a kids gym. My son and I had a lot of fun together. We played in the kids gym which is a huge play area filled with tubes, a ball pit, and slides. My son spent most of his time in the ball pit. While my sis watched the boy, I followed the autistic boy all throughout the tubes. He was so fast! I could barely keep up with him. It was great exercise, but now my knees are killing me. I spent a lot of time on my hands and knees crawling through kid sized tubes.

They had pizza for the party, but I was a good girl and only had one piece of cheese pizza. I also only had a few bits of leftover cake that my son didn't want(because the icing was gone). I definitely worked it off by the time I left! I should go there every night for my evening exercise. (Gotta love sarcasm!)

Crazy!

I usually like Wednesdays, but not today. The boys have been crazy! The youngest will not stop whining and dragging toys all over the house. They can make a huge mess in my son's room so long as the family room stays clean. But the youngest just doesn't understand this...yet. He will not stop carrying cars and trucks from my son's room to the family room and the kitchen. He doesn't play with them, just carries them around and leaves them. Crazy kid!

The red-head has a staring problem today. As the boys were watching Sesame Street, he stands right in front of the tv and stares at the other two. When my son was eating his lunch, the red-head stood at the table and stared. He also stared when my son was in the bath. I don't know what's up with red today. Crazy kid!

My son pooped twice, that's right twice, in the tub today. This is the second time in a week he has done this disgusting deed in the tub. Have you ever tried to clean poop off a wet boy in a bath? Let me tell ya, it's no fun. I had to drain the water, clean the pooped on toys, scoop out the poop, wash my son's back side, and re-run the water to clean him. As I am rinsing him, I notice more poop in the bottom of the tub. He did it again! He pooped while I was washing him! Sneaky, crazy kid!

Life is grand, I mean crazy!

Time With The Sis

My sister and I had a wonderful evening last night. We went to Meijer together to buy The Village and the fixings for sloppy joes. I was upset since the store(and a few others) have stopped carrying canned chicken gumbo(I use this plus meat to make joes). I had to think of another way to make our meal. I decided to use a can of chicken and rice and a can of manwich(which I don't care for). It didn't turn out bad. I hate the strong flavor of manwich, but with the added chicken and rice, it tasted pretty good.

After our dinner, we watched the newly purchased movie. I tear up at the same scene every time I watch it. It's when Ivy holds out her hand. I love it! It's a good thing that my sis watched it with me so that I could explain what was going on. She also enjoyed the movie, but she didn't care for how it was ended.

Btw, I thought I should mention that she called the cops on her guy friend. She didn't want to see him any more, but he told her that he was on his way(it was around midnight). She called my dad, a Columbus police officer, and told him what was going on. My dad then called her guy friend after calling a nearby unit to go and check my sis. Everything turned out okay, and the guy friend has not been seen or heard from since. My sis now knows not to give out her address so quickly to a stranger.

Funny Website And Little Known Facts

This website allows you to have an at home mammogram. You just press your boobs up against your computer screen and the site does the rest.
http://www.internetmammogram.net/



Did you know:
-It is impossible to lick your elbow.

-Every day more money is printed for Monopoly than the US Treasury.

-Each king in a deck of playing cards represents a great king from history (Spades - King David, Hearts - Charlemagne, Clubs -Alexander, the Great, Diamonds - Julius Caesar)

-If a statue in the park of a person on a horse has both front legs in the air, the person died in battle. If the horse has one front leg in the air the person died as a result of wounds received in battle. If the horse has all four legs on the ground, the person died of natural causes.

-Only two people signed the Declaration of Independenceon July 4th, John Hancock and CharlesThomson. Most of the rest signed on August 2, but the last signature wasn't added until 5 years later.

-In Shakespeare's time, mattresses were secured on bed frames by ropes. When you pulled on the ropes the mattress tightened, making the bed firmer to sleep on. Hence the phrase......... "good night, sleep tight."

-It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that for a month after the wedding, the bride's father would supply his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the honey month .. which we know today as the honeymoon.

-In English pubs, ale is ordered by pints and quarts... So in old England, when customers got unruly, the bartender would yell at them "Mind your pints and quarts, and settle down."It's where we get the phrase "mind your P's and Q's"

-At least 75% of people who read this will try to lick their elbow

Early To Bed, Late To Rise

I went to bed pretty early last night. It's been a long time since I have gone to bed before 11. Since I was so tired, I was in bed by 10:15 and asleep 15 minutes later. It felt good going to bed right as I was getting sleepy.

Besides being so tired, I went to bed early because I wanted to be up by 6 to go get the newly released dvd, The Village. This movie just came out today and I wanted to buy it as soon as possible. I even have a gift cert given to me by Guru and Lo for Christmas especially for this purchase. They know what I like!

Only one thing, or should I say person, stopped me from going- my son. Around 4 this morning, I noticed my son was in my bed. Neither myself or my hubby put him there and I didn't even hear the boy come into the room. He must of had a bad dream and climbed into the bed between the hubby and I. After noticing him, I got up to shut the bedroom door so the cat wouldn't get out. In doing this, my son stirred. After getting back in bed, he snuggled up next to me and started playing with my bottom lip(He always does this when he is tired or half asleep). This kept me up for the next couple of hours till my alarm clock went off at 6. I tried to leave, but the boy wouldn't have it. As it turns out, I was not able to go to the store like I had planned. Being a mother always comes first.

Hopefully I will have time to go buy it today. My sis is planning on coming over tonight to watch the movie with me. I might go after the youngest is picked up. Only time will tell.

The life of a mother is grand!

I Like Mondays

Yes, that's right, I like Mondays. Let me tell ya why. Monday is a chore day so the day goes by very quickly. I have laundry and dishes from the weekend that need to be done on this day as well as getting back in to the routine of watching three boys. So far today I have done four loads of laundry, a load of dishes, and I have stripped and re-made the bed with clean sheets. I have also cleaned/straightened my bedroom and my son's messy room. I plan on cleaning all the floors in the house tomorrow. Should be a lot of fun! (rrrrright)

Mondays are grand!

January 10, 2005 6:14 PM

 
Blogger ghraper said...

As we lose weight, the clothes we buy will be smaller. That means more items per load, and consequently, fewer loads of laundry to do.

January 10, 2005 7:19 PM

 
Blogger Trinity13 said...

Yup, 4 loads. I do one load a day and since I don't do laundry on the weekends, that pushes my two weekend loads to Monday. Also, since I stripped the bed, you have to add an extra load for all the sheets, blankets, and pillow cases which makes 4 loads.

Ditto on the never-ending.

Weigh In Day!

Okay, time for me to do a real post for a change. The exercise has really worn me out recently and I haven't been in the mood to post anything of real value or thought.

I stepped on the scale this morning and I found out that I have lost a total of 9 pounds in a weeks time. I am back in the 100's at 196! I would love to lose this much every week, but the first week is the easiest(for me that is). I am motivated and excited about losing weight. Hopefully with this online challenge, I will stay motivated to lose the 31 more pounds to win!

How did everyone else do?

Blogger Drifter said...

291.8 for me!

January 10, 2005 9:21 AM

 
Blogger loelsh said...

Well I'm only down 5 lbs from last week. A little disappointing to me, as I had hoped to at least be down about 7 lbs. I have really been watching my calories, but I suppose it's not bad since I haven't exercised hardly AT ALL this week. I got a total of about 20-25 minutes worth of workout all week between 2 different days. That sucks! I just hope I don't get too discouraged and give up completely. When I don't see results, I tend to give up easily because I wonder why I torment myself if I'm not even going to lose weight as a result. Plus, I'm not extremely competetive. I don't really care if I lose at stuff and don't care for the attitude of people who do (my hubby included). Sure winning is great, but I don't thrive on winning everything. Just who I am. My point of bringing that up is that I hope I can stay motivated since the whole "I just gotta win" attitude is just not me and I know that will keep others motivated, but I'm worried about myself in that aspect.

She needs to make this something that she can finish. If she does not like a challenge, then she needs to do rewards. Each goal she reaches she gets a reward. I work this way. I love a challenge, but I get caught up in stuff as well! I am so proud of you for starting this whole thing. Way to go!

Nada

I really don't have anything to write about today. Nothing has changed, nothing is going on. Just here, trying to lose weight and trying to not eat everything in sight.

I am down a few pounds, but I will reveal my new weight on Monday along with everyone else. I do need to buy a new scale. If I get on it a few times in a row, it gives me a different number every time, especially if I change the leg I put on first. I end up weighing less if I put my right foot on the scale first. So, I now use my right foot first every time.

Maybe I will have more to talk about this evening, but I wouldn't count on it.

Life is grand people!

Tae-Bo

I am feeling so alert and alive right now! I just did a workout will watching a Billy Blanks Tae-Bo video. He has a warm up, a work out, and a cool down that lasts a total of 20 minutes. I worked muscles that haven't been used since...who knows when. The first 10 minutes of the workout, my bones would not stop cracking. I guess I don't move my body like that very often. My hands are still shaking from all excitement. Also, I had to take of my shirt because I was sweating so much!(a true sign of a good workout-sweat)

Here are the two videos I borrowed from my parents. You should come over some time Lo and workout with me. It's a lot of fun!

Life truly is grand at this moment!

Night At Home

Last night was pretty enjoyable. The hubby and I stayed home out of the rain to relax on the couch. We had left over beef stew and we watched a dvd I got for Christmas-Ferris Bueller Day Off. Ever heard of it? Anyway, I really enjoyed watching this movie with no commercials. It was great! Then we watched Lost and the two hour premier of Alias. Both shows were very entertaining and I plan on watching Alias again next week.

I was in bed last night by 11:15. Talk about early! Usually I am up till 12:30 and then I am up again by 6:30. That extra time helped me get up easier this morning to get to the autisic boy's home by 6:45.

Good times, good times.

Good for you. I'm glad you got some extra sleep. There's no way I could do that every day! I NEED my sleep. At least a good 8-9 hours a night or you can count on me being a grouch!

I am the opposite. If I got to sleep 8-9 hours, I would probably be a grouch for having too much sleep. But, it was nice having 7 hours last night.

Roswell

As most of you know, I am a huge Roswell fan. I eventually want the series collection on dvd. I was still able to watch this show at 4 on the SciFi Channel till recently. When my show wasn't on for a week, I was upset(and still am upset). I went to SciFi.com to find out what they did to my show. It turns out that with the new year, the show has a new schedule. I am so pissed of right now because this channel will only have Roswell shown one to two days a month. It will be a full day of the show, but I want my daily Roswell back! I will have to wait till June 28th for the show to go back to it's normal time!

I know, I know, I am getting upset over a tv show. But, I just happen to love Roswell. Is that so wrong?

That STINKS! It's way worse than Cartoon Network switching up the Family Guy schedule. Atleast it's still on every day. I don't even watch Roswell, but I hate it when show schedules change like that.

My Son's Eating Habits

I figured out one of the reasons why I am overweight. My son likes to take food and only eat half of it. I end up eating the rest.

Yesterday he had a banana, peanut butter bar, and a chocolate pop tart that I had to finish for him. I can't let food go to waste even if it is just a couple of bites. I know this stuff didn't really add up the calories too much, but I still don't like eating things that are not in my food schedule for the day.

I have to try to find a way to get him to finish his food. This is a must if I want to be a weight lose success story.

Spaghetti Legs

I feel so weak today. All that jumping and working out on my mini trampoline has made my legs feel like jello. I am even a little shaky when I walk.

I changed the time that I normally exercise from during Dr Phil to early in the morning. I now wake up, get dress, and work out till the red-head shows up. I usually get 20-30 min to myself this way. Then I get to shower in the morning instead of waiting till the boys nap time when I did it during the doc's show. Changing my exercising time has allowed me to get it done and out of the way for the day.

The only bad thing that comes with exercising so early in the morning is that it makes me so tired. I barely got through the day yesterday because I was so exhausted. I hope today will be better. It has to get better.

The boys were crazy yesterday as well. The youngest would cry for no reason and he would make the other two upset. There were several points throughout the morning that all three would be looking at each other and crying. I can deal with crying, but not crying for no reason. Some how I made it through the day in one piece.

Diet life is grand!

Lois And Clark



I am soooo very excited. It is rumored that Lois and Clark: The Adventures of Superman will be out on dvd this year. I loved this series and I currently have all the episodes on crappy vhs. I have wanted this dvd collection for years now! I even signed the online petition to have it on dvd.

Anyone else out there a fan of the show?

I was a big fan of the show. I watched it just about every week. It started to suck after they got together. It is like most shows with that kind of tension... you are dying for the characters to get together, but when they do, it's like the writers run out of ideas!

I didn't realize that you had all of the eppys on VHS. Maybe I'll check some out sometime.

I think the show lost some of it's spark when Lois(Hatcher) cut her hair. I liked it better longer.

Feeling Good, But Tired

Well, I had a busy day today. I had all three boys in my care, so I was on my feet all day. The first was dropped off at 7:15 and the second at 8:15. My son got up at 9 after I had finished the dishes, a load of laundry, and breakfast for myself and the red head. Then after rearranging my linen closet, I got out my mini trampoline to exercise on while watching Dr. Phil. I actually broke a sweat! It was a great 45 minute workout.

After the boy's lunch, I took a few hours to put all my Christmas away. What a task, but at least it is done. I finished in time to get the first boy prepared to go then I made beef stew for dinner. It was so good, if I must say so.

I got to have some time to myself tonight. I haven't had a mommy's night in quite some time. It was nice to just walk around a few stores by myself. It was also good exercise.

Well, I am a little sore already, so I had better turn in. I hope I can keep up with the exercising. How is everyone else doing? Lost any weight yet?

Too early for any real loss.......just gotta keep doin it....we will lose some weight......we must.....this is a "Big Picture" kinda thing.....fluctuations happen....we can't get too excited either way....it's the end goal we have to keep in mind.

I think you are in love with Dr. Phil.....is this true?

I actually lost a little weight already Drifter. I stepped on the scale this morning and I am two pounds lighter!

Btw, Dr P is the man and I might, kind of, sort of have a thing for him. Maybe it's because of the shiny spot on top of his head. I don't know.

I have also lost 2 lbs since yesterday morning! I kind of get obsessed and weigh myself multiple times a day, which I know is not a good thing. Even weighing in everyday isn't good, cause it can cause you to get discouraged. But, I know I will continue to do it anyway, though I am only recording my weight once a week.

January 04, 2005 12:45 PM

 
Blogger Trinity13 said...

I do the same thing Lo. I can't help buy weigh myself every other day or even every day. I need to see results as soon as possible!

Btw, great job on being 2 pounds lighter!

I just went to the bathroom, and lost 2 pounds.

The Day Is Here!

Okay people, are you ready? It's time to give up the junk food. Put down the leftover Christmas cookies. Throw away the hardened fudge. It's time to lose 40 pounds!

Okay Drifter, it's coming. I will have my current weight in this post. That means that you also need to post your weight since you said, "I'll show you mine.....if you show me yours!!!!!" So you had better get to it. I want to know your weight by the end of the day.

Btw, here is the list of people in our online weight loss challenge(so far):
Trinity
Ghraper
Guru
Loelsh
Drifter
Woman from Ill(?)

If there is anyone else out there who wants to join, let me know so I can add you to the support group list.

Okay, it's time to reveal. I stepped on the scale this morning and I weigh a whopping 205! That's right, I am back over 200 again. But here is the thing. I will be below 200 by the end of this week! I want to be at 198 by next Sunday. I think it is definitely possible to accomplish this.

Diet life is grand!

My weigh in was at 292 (yes, I am ashamed). So, I was about to have to take drastic measures anyway, since if I ever get to 300, I am killing myself.

Here we go on our way down!

One of my good friends, Princess J, emailed me today wanting to join the weight lose list. She has 10 pounds that she wants to loose. I know that 10 pounds is not alot, but have you ever tried losing the last 10 pounds of your weight lose goal? She has always been slender, but she wants to firm up. Wish her luck!

January 03, 2005 11:04 AM

I weighed in this morning at 10 lbs. Unfortunately the scale had already gone around once.

Good luck Princess J. Welcome aboard.

Ok, ok, since everyone else is posting their weight, I suppose I will too. I mean, everybody already knows I'm fat just by looking at me. I weighed in at 230 lbs this morning. So, unfortunately, I did gain back all the weight I lost after having Luke. But...let the downward slide begin!!

The Weight Challenge

As most of you know, a couple of us are starting a weight race tomorrow. It should be really fun! I have thought of a few stipulations on our race. If you don't like, just let me know so that we can come to an agreement.

First off, I think that it is possible to for us all to lose 40 pounds in 4 months. I want to lose more weight, but this seems like a realistic goal for us all to reach by May.

Second, we will have two winners. The first person to lose their 40 pounds and the person who has lost the most after 4 months will be our winners. Sound good to everyone?

Let the race begin...in 15 minutes.

Btw, here are a few more tips from the doc:

-Be sure to look at the recommended portion sizes when you are assessing the item.
-After cooking the leanest ground beef (96% lean), chicken or turkey, run it under water in a colander to rinse off the rest of the fat.
-Avoid sauces and oils.
-Follow the "three bite rule." If a dessert is worth it, share it and have three polite bites of it ONLY.

Phantom Of The Opera



Plot Outline: A disfigured musical genius, hidden away in the Paris Opera House, terrorizes the opera company for the unwitting benefit of a young protege whom he trains and loves.
From here.

My sis and I just saw the Phantom movie and I must say that I liked it. I had seen the theatrical production of it in high school with the 8 people in my senior class. I enjoyed it then and my mom even bought me a $20 phantom shirt that I wore two times. Yipee!

Anyway, if you like musicals, you would love this movie. I got goose pimples several times because of the great singing. I love the story and the movie really brought me in. So, if you are gay or if you are a girl, you will love this movie. Guys, take your woman to see this. She will love you for it!

My Sis Part 2

Okay, I my sis and her new guy were supposed to have dinner here at my house yesterday. Check out the post talking about it here. Well, that didn't happen. I guess she and her man had a difference in opinion and I am thanking God for it!

Here is the story that I got from my sis: She was talking to her man yesterday and he was hung over from the night before. She was supposed to go drinking with him, but a she decided to take a baby sitting job instead. It's a good thing too since he volunteered to be her designated driver. (Anyone else seeing him possibly taking advantage of my drunk sis here?)

Anyway, he had a headache and wasn't feeling well. I bet he felt even worse when my sis told him that they were going to fast. She wanted to slow things down a bit, but he (of course) disagreed with her. This is when my sis started to get emotional because she knew that the end of the relationship was near. She raised her voice and he didn't like it. He told her that she needed to change the way she was and that she needed to not be so emotional about "small things"(like her virginity?).

He then told her that he would not be joining her for dinner with me and lunch with the parents today. She was okay with this, but then started freaking out. She came over to my home and we were able to talk for several hours. After seeing a movie together, she had a really funny feeling in the pit of her stomach. She was afraid that he would try to come over to her home late in the night. Since she doesn't know him, she of course didn't know if he would be the kind of man to do this.

We then went to her house to pick up some of her clothes so that she could stay the night with me. It's a good thing that she did because he called her cell phone at 1am looking for her! I guess he had been calling her home for a while. I don't know what his problem is.

I am so glad that this guy is almost past tense. She deserves soooo much better. I know the right guy is out there somewhere for her, but she is too impatient to look for him.

Ahhhh sisters, gotta love them.

Sorry About Late Post

Hey, thanks for stopping by. I just happen to love love love the Matrix films! My hubby got me 10 disc dvd collection for C-mas.

As for the 13, it seems as though the number has been following me through life. I know most people think it is an unlucky number, but for me it is the opposite. I love this number. So many good things have happened to me on the 13th. Crazy, I know.

Btw, I will be 25 on Feb 1st. I will be a quarter of a century old! Time flys! Heehee.

One more thing...how did you find me? Were you blog hopping? I love blog hopping.
