Ugh. Monday. It was a busy one too. At least it was a beautiful sunny day. I almost got into a fight with/was so sick of myself for about half an hour when I kept forgetting things and tripping over things and being late, etc. etc. but it all worked out. I really love this dress but I have never worn it because it's not super flattering when my gut is present (now) and I always feel more self conscious in tight clothing. So you betcha, I pulled my tights up past my belly button and ate toast for breakfast instead of a giant bagel and cream cheese. I also paired it with the top part of a sweater that had become too small (short) in its many visits to the dryer. I still loved the hood part so I got the idea to cut off the top and pin it to the top/front only section of this strapless dress making it more flattering since my armpit fat wasn't so much hanging out anymore. Aahhh it's so wonderful being a girl.
I worked a lot today and then went to buy tickets for New Moon so Rica, Sue and I can go see the 4:30PM Friday showing and then go get some dinner and talk all about it. I am sure it will be dreadful and I am also sure I will love every second of it. Yippee! I dragged myself to they gym kicking and screaming and then came home and made white bean and spinach veggie burgers from scratch. They were quite tasty, especially since I added fake bacon, cheese, and sauteed mushrooms. I am so going to eat another one tomorrow. Yup. Michael and I watched a tiny bit of television and then I showered and continued an internet argument (my first!) on Yelp. Now I'll retire to bed and maybe read a little Into the Wild and then get up early for my lady doctor appointment tomorrow morning. Boo.
