Top Ten

Almost a month since my last post. Holy cow. Time flies. So, in case you're wondering what I've been up to...let me bore you with the details... =)

1) I've gone to Chuck E. Cheese not once, but TWICE in the last 30 days. Unsubstantial pizza, sugary soda and lots of bright lights and noises that can make you develop a twitch. Both boys wanted their birthday meals there, so we went. Honestly, I think Daddy may have had more fun than the boys.

2) I forgot about the Exercise Ball DVD and was facing a hefty overdue library fine when the super sweet AV Lady from the library called and told me to high-tail it in there while she was there. Thank you, AV Lady. You are my hero. (I'm glancing over the "forgot about the DVD" part in hopes you won't remember that I was supposed to actually USE the video for exercising.)

3) I was told by a 91 year old woman that I looked better fatter and my hair shouldn't be partially pulled back, because it looks awful that way. Seriously. Forget the hair part and focus on the beginning. "I looked better fatter." Who says that?!

4) I am now down to the 150s. Comfortably so, I must add. Truly, it's the 3 hours 5 nights a week of busting my buns at work. My legs were burning from walking so fast the other night. Who needs a gym when you have a nursing home?!

5) Thanksgiving. I cooked, I ate, I worked...and there went all of the calories. Bonus points for work.

6) I've been crafting. Mostly to keep from exercising, I think. I'm going to be making exercising thingy-ma-bobs to go with my exercising theme, so check back.

7) Fall decorations down, Christmas decorations up. Hot chocolate - yum.

8) 300 tissues, 3 sniffly kids, 1 sniffly husband....priceless.

9) Avoiding the blog since I haven't been formally exercising. There. See, you didn't think I'd admit to it did you?

10) Trying to figure out how to design a fabulous website idea in my head. The idea in my head...not the website. Oh, stop already, you know what I mean.

So, there you have it. Weight lost, turkey eaten, avoidance admitted. What more could you ask from a blog post?

I took my wife to Foxwoods casino for her birthday. That's what she asked for. We stayed overnight in a suite. soaked in a hot tub. Ate dinner at California Pizza Kitchen. I had a massage at the spa, while she played the slots.

Her 3-yr old niece asked what I was getting my wife for her b-day, and I said we were going to "Chuck E. Cheese for Grownups" , and she got all excited "Atha's going to ChuckECheese!!!"
