Because I know you are all dying to know more about me-
What do I really appreciate right now?
This kid, as always, astounds me with her personality and beauty. I know, every kid is beautiful to their parent. She was beautiful to me when she was born premature and looked like an alien. The nurse who was holding her made that likeness but as I gave her the "I still have tons of pregnancy hormones running amuck" look she quickly explained "pre- mees either look like aliens or monkey babies." I decided alien was OK.
What's weirding me out right now?
The kid from the above statement has taken to making weird breathing noises while she eats. I've tried everything to get her to stop. I'm really sensitive to noises and really particular about eating habits- not mine, other people's. My last attempt to get her to quit was "STOP doing THAT- people will think you're retarded!" To which she responded "What's retarded?" and then I had to explain its a word that people don't use anymore to describe people that ride the short bus. Surprisingly, she still makes the noise.
What's cracking me up right now?
This episode of "Sunny With a Chance" (teeny- bopper show, hate them all but this episode was too funny for its viewers to appreciate- only a weirdo like me truly gets it!) wherein one of the characters is a teen idol who was setting a fashion trend of wearing extra skinny pants. Trouble was they were cutting off circulation- a condition newly classified as SPS- skinny pants syndrome.Being an 80's teenager I love the chance to laugh at tight jeans coming back into fashion. The starlett was forced to wear these blow up pants to cure her syndrome but after being caught in them she ran off and put the skinny pants back on. Her caring friend commanded "Put on your medicine pants!" (That's a funny statement right there!) but Starlett refused and promptly fell down as her circulation became compromised. Undaunted she declared "I'd rather crawl HOT than walk UGLY" Seriously- Why didn't I write that episode? Still cracking me up, days later. I think I'll go get me some medicine pants!
What am I doing to be more healthy?
Take this Healthy Thinking Thursday Group! I'm walking (not fast, I'm not crazy) on the treadmill!
What am I doing to make the most of my time?
Trying to do art while walking on the treadmill.
How's it going, you wonder.....not well. My sketches are very sketchy and laying the sketch book on the thingy where the numbers are you know, pulse, mph, calories burnt- whatever that's called-keeps restarting the timer so I have no idea how long I've been on there but I suspect its not as long as it seems.
What do I recommend not doing?
Drinking beer while on the treadmill. As tempting as a cold beer may seem after a long hot walk it does defeat the purpose. I am currently conducting a study and will apprise you of the results.
Well, that's all for now folks. I think I will try another 5 minute stint on the 'ole mill and then maybe shop the Internet for some blow up pants in a size small. Not little teenage girl small. Forty-one year old short with an elastic waist band.
