So I found another hair growing out my chin this week. It’s amazing, really, how those things just sprout over night. One day, you’re feeling pretty good that your diet is paying off and you only have one chin, instead of three, and the next–BAM! A long, black hair is poking out of your new-found chin. I guess it’s nature’s way of keeping you humble.
Despite the weight loss and not working, my back is worse than ever. I wake up most mornings not able to walk or stand up straight without gasping and/or crying. That means I haven’t been able to start exercising. I want to exercise. It will help my back and speed up this dieting drudge. It’s the ol’ Catch-22. I need to exercise to make my back feel better but I need my back to feel better so I can exercise. Grrrr.
Oh and the 6yo had a stomach virus yesterday which I now have. I’m sitting here, typing, in an effort to concentrate on anything other than the fact that I could vomit at any minute. When I vomit, I cry, and I’m an ugly crier. So, I’d rather not be an ugly, puking crier. I’ll just keep my slightly green tinge, thank you very much. *deep breaths*
There is something that happened this week than I’m really excited about. I discovered a wonderful blog gathering called, “Yeah Write.” Basically, it’s 50 blogs linking up and competing for awards–peer choice, editor’s choice, and 2 lurker’s choice. But I don’t really care about the awards. Don’t get me wrong. I’d love to win one. Who doesn’t like to win awards? Stupid people, that’s who. And I’m not stupid. But just reading these blogs and leaving comments and having these sweet people do the same is award enough. Seriously, these are some awesome people. I wish I’d found it sooner. If you’re interested, you can read more about it here. If you don’t want to compete, there is a hang-out where you can just read and share the blog love.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go throw up.
