I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
i'm tired of the "no such thing as global warming" contingent denying a weather shift.
it's been a warm, almost snow-less winter and this week our temperatures will be more like late-April/early-May instead of mid-March. Thursday we are scheduled to hit the low 70s after 50s leading up to it, starting today.
our normal daytime high for this time of year is 4C/39F!
Uh-huh, right. So the SO tells his ex what we're doing for the kiddo's birthday. Getting her a new mattress (to replace her wetting days one, getting cheapo foam kind), getting her dream boots (will be posting pics this afternoon after purchase in the boot thread ), piñata & cupcakes at school the day after, books that she wants.
He really should know better, I've warned him about it time & time again. She got the kid a new foam mattress end of Feb and did a piñata and gave her the other gifts, books, this weekend because it was a good idea. Well sure it was, yep.

^Well, on the bright side it means you can now get her something more fun than a mattress. Not that a mattress isn't nice, just that it's one of those "need" things and so now you can do a "want" thing.
Heh, just make sure SO doesn't spill the beans about the new present...

It's kind of a running joke that I never eat the staff meals that I put so much love and effort into (like the burrito day --- rice, beans, carnitas, salsa de aguacate, salsa roja, tomato salad), but yesterday I made a tortilla soup that I should have gotten more of! There's just something so addictive about that spicy broth hit with lime, crunchy tortilla strips, crisp cabbage and radishes, and creamy cool avocado. In spite of some whining about the heat level, the only thing left was tortilla strips since I fried a lot, and some cabbage. I only tasted a little after the bit of shredded chicken and the avocado had all gone (we have one staff member who doesn't eat meat, so I try to keep the meat separate so we don't have to make separate meals just for him), and it was still so good!
It's also funny how if you put out a simple broth and load the table with toppings, you can sell soup as an exciting staff meal. I made a chickpea, potato, and sausage soup early on and got a bit of grumbling as to that being it for staff.
So my mom got a movie from the library and it's a Spanish film (from Pedro Almodóvar). There's a blind man and he's having a woman describe herself to him. He then touches her hair, face, repeating what she told him. He pulls her top down to expose her breasts and this is of course not censored.
My mother comments on how it looks as if this movie is "kind of porno".
Sigh. Really, woman? Nudity in a film does not a porno make. Nor does an off-screen sex scene with sound effects.
