Random Writings...

This has been a crazy-busy week for me and I'm coming off of being sick. I finally went to the doctor on Monday because I had had ENOUGH of feeling like crap. Turns out it's another sinus infection and I'm on antibiotics for 10 days. I would have felt better pretty quick but the weather here was crappy, too, and when it's overcast and whatnot, I tend to get a sinus headache. I'm just now starting to feel a little better.

Weight Watchers. Sigh. Okay, so I'm down about 15 pounds and was feeling really good and starting to really like the way that I look when suddenly I cannot stop myself from eating. Seriously.
It has been like random, mindless eating. Today after MOPS, I took Michael to get McDonald's to reward him for doing such a good job. I've eaten McDonald's since going on WW and I know what to eat to feed my craving without going overboard. Until today. I had to get the Angus Deluxe meal. I just HAD TO. But, in my defense, I did not get the cheese or the mayo on it so that helped. My coke tasted icky and I only ate a quarter of my fries. The burger totally rocked but I felt guilty and horrible for the rest of the day because I had blown it. And that's not including the gyro that I had for lunch on Tuesday while out with a friend or the beef with garlic sauce that I got from the Chinese restaurant Monday night when I didn't feel like cooking! Seriously, I am out of control.

My husband is making me crazy. Or should I say, making me feel like I'm going crazy. Frank is starting to get seriously forgetful. I'm talking about the kind of forgetfulness where he'll ask me a question, I'll answer it and ten minutes later he'll ask me again because he's forgotten. You know, once in a while we all forget something, but he's doing it a lot lately and I'm starting to get worried. I wonder if there is something OTC that you can take to boost your memory. Well, even if there was, I wonder if he'd take it.

I have majorly decluttered my house. I love that feeling. I tend to get bogged down with paper. It just seems to pile up everywhere and before I know it, there's not a clear surface anywhere in the dang house! Well, I tackled it all and it looks wonderful!!

I want to go to Disney.

We're getting ready to talk to the landlord about our bathroom. The tub is sinking and there are HUGE gaps between it and the wall and now there is a mold problem and it needs to be fixed properly. My bathroom is extremely tiny - you can sit on the bowl while brushing your teeth in the sink and washing your hair in the tub. It was horrible to maneuver around in there while I was pregnant. Very, very tight. So I'm thinking that he's going to give us a hard time about it because really, the tub needs to be replaced, the walls need to be repaired and the floor is going to have to be replaced. We are willing to do the work if he'll take care of the supplies. Frank and I are going to work up a price list of what we will need so that this guy does not stick us with crappy materials. We'll see how that goes. We'll probably have an answer by the end of the month. I've got my fingers crossed!

Actually, I had found a house that I fell in love with that was for sale. We have no money to buy a house but I was dreaming. It was 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, hardwood was beautiful. A friend of mine is married to a man that works for the town. When I told him about the house and the location he told me all KINDS of things that are going to be going on in that area that would NOT make it a good place to live! I was so thankful because now I can let that dream go and keep hoping and praying for a better place to live - and a boatload of cash to make that happen.

These are the kinds of things that run through my brain all night long!!!

I love random <3

Glad your dream house has hidden nightmares and can just stay a dream ;)

Wow, you have a lot going on there. I'm exhausted from just reading it all.

Hope you are feeling better soon, but layoff the fast food! One hamburger is okay, even WW will tell you that, but you have to stop there. Good luck this week!
