I had to shower before bed again, because... Ain't no way I'm waking up early enough tomorrow to take a shower before work.

However, trying to sleep with wet hair when it's this long has brought me to an important conclusion... I totally have a hair cape tonight, y'all.

Well, looking at photos of smoker's lungs ought to make me get back on the wagon.

Here's hoping.

Growing up, our dentist was named Dr. Armstrong.

On a totally unrelated note, my living room is becoming quite inhospitable. My dog is barking in his sleep, and my husband fell asleep and is snoring. Noise pollution, I tell you.
-As I was soaking in my magnesium bath I thought to myself that I really need to get Epsom salts because a magnesium bath is way too expensive. And all of a sudden I realized I'm 38 with sciatica and taking soaking baths. When did this happen?

-I found a pair of leggings I forgot I bought and put those on after my bath (sooo comfortable, OMG must buy more for around the house) and Mr. Spring (who never notices ANYTHING) said "Cute pants!" in that tone that men get when they're being naughty. I said "These are leggings, not pants."

-We had to take Lactaid back to the grocery to exchange it because it tasted like white water. We've been drinking the same milk for several years now and it's always been good. The one we exchanged it for? White water, again. WTF Lactaid! So now I have to eat cookies without milk*. #firstworldcookieissues

*upon the completion of this post Mr. Spring saved the day by adding half and half to almond milk for us to have with the cookies. The look of horror on my face when I said "How MUCH half and half did you put in it?!?" must have been funny to him.

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 know it may seem a bit obvious, but making positive changes and making an effort to be happy feels really really good!! (I mean, this is obviously in relation to myself - I'm not trying to slydig anyone nor am I saying that everyone NEEDS to do this!) I've been so much happier once I started being kind to myself, you know? I often used to get sucked into negativity spirals, but now I'm getting (happily!) sucked into positivity spirals (I'm not sure that's an actual thing)!
made up of 98.822% silliness!!

oh, I also wore my neon yellow tank top and neon pink sports bra today to spread the neon love!! I did, however, wear black bottoms. now I'm thinking I need to get more neon bottoms to commit fully to the cause.

OMG my friend has a 1 year old little boy. Today, a few of us were hanging out, and the husband was holding him. The baby bit the husband on the shoulder and he called the baby a "little sh*t," slapped him on the face (!!!!!) and threw him roughly to the ground!!! In front of all of us!

I couldn't believe it! I absolutely could not believe my eyes!

All my friend had to say was, "Don't call him a little sh*t."

Holy cow! I feel so bad for that baby! I always thought his father was a first class a-hole. Now I know it.

It drives me absolutely bonkers that the tv channels put all they're top programs on at the same time.

Everything is on at 8/9pm on a Sunday and Monday night.

Hi - there's NOTHING on the rest of the week - why not spread it out a bit?

I can't watch 5 shows at the same time. Grrrr
I think procrastinator is my mid name by now..I hv projects that I hv been delaying for 2 weeks and my deadline is this Monday ..ahhhh I only hv to complete few things n I just Don't ..oh well lets see where am I gonna end up
I can't even begin to properly hug everyone who needs one. I can't even figure out how I should be there for my mom, since it's her dad who died after all, but she's not strongly tied to emotions and IDK, in the past she hasn't wanted the comfort I'd offer a different personality and I've known it and I know that hasn't changed now, but...something. I just want you all to know my heart goes out to you and I wish I could make it all hurt less.
(((((((big group hug with giant noodle arms)))))))

I was sobbing reading those pages of the thread, but it was good that I did. It was a release. That business of being "all cried out" is a damn dirty lie, though. I want to cry again right now. RCW, what you said about relationships being judged by all the good over all the years was so beautiful. Aaaand now I am crying again. I'm gonna need to replace this box of tissues.

Oh god, all the talk about how I'm so much like him, that I'm almost like a clone and my mind is so like his (with "too much" flying around in it - poppycock, but meant well). It's wonderful and it's painful. When we were clearing plates from the table awhile back and I casually took back the glass my grandma picked up (no snatching or anything rude) because I was still using it, she declared, "He's not dead, he's here!" He didn't go snatching at things either, but he ate very slowly and very little toward the end, so I guess there was a bit of grey area with plates. On the one hand, I love hearing these kinds of things because I love being reminded of our connection but on the other, it hurts so much that he's not here so we can hang out and talk and relate and prove it. We talked so little and that wasn't wrong, it's not like he was known for his chattiness, but there's so much I would never have thought to ask about that we could have shared and everything just feels like it was so empty and pointless and I should have done everything differently.

I have that little urn with some of his ashes in it now. I wonder how he felt about porcelain dolls. When I received each of the three I own, I was so amazed and I felt that they were so precious, they had to be someplace super safe, even hidden, and that's why I put them in the cabinet. Now this little urn is the most precious thing I own and it's in the cabinet with them. This bit of him in its urn inside its velvet bag is by the little lamb doll one of them is holding because he loved animals. Like me. My mom used to have to send me into petting zoos with someone else so she could have her private grossed-out moment while I hugged a goat. When I'm finally gone from this place, I'll make him his own spot there and he won't have to share space with any dolls if he wants to come chill with this portion of his body, but I think for now, this is good. I also think the urn will be good to talk to - gives me a focal point.

I need to call that grief counselor. I also need to call my insurance to lobby for the right to go back to therapy. These are such useful things to think at 4:22 am.
OMG, LOOK!!

...It's a siggie.
I always sort of wished we had to do the rope climb that was always part of the dreaded gym class repertoire on TV. No doubt it would've sucked to actually have to do it, but still. Climbing things sounds way more fun than push-ups and junk.

Blaaaaagh, tears drying on your face are worse than the stiffest face masks because as far as I know, nobody uses tears as a beauty treatment.

The family got together for dinner last night for the occasion of Grandma Said So and when we were the only ones in the room, my uncle asked me if I had plans for "becoming independent again." I told him some stuff that was pretty vague but hopefully enough to make a good answer because I couldn't say anything relating too closely to what the actual problem has been. Come to think of it, my uncle isn't exactly known for his tact, so his phrasing and how non-judgmental he was really shows how good he is at being an uncle. I wish he'd be as good to himself and embrace the idea of letting emotions out.

I got up into Crow pose for longer this time and I felt much more solid in the position. Also, I'm actually starting to see/feel some nice bicep action going on now! I'll have a sweet pair o' guns to show off in no time.
OMG, LOOK!!

rcc, you could totally pull that off. do it! and post pics! (I like the cat shoes, very cute)

springy, how is your butt today?

seriously, I hope you're feeling better and ache-free

heh

Springy ~ My chiro says if more people used ice and Aleve he'd be out of business. Heat treats the symptoms and feels better short term, but ice and Aleve works better in the long run and will get you back on your feet quicker. Use an ice pack for 20 minutes, off 40 minutes...repeat 3 times and do this 2-3 times a day. Take 2 Aleve, then one more in 8 hours. I never used to take Aleve, but I use this method and it really works! I know it's working because it prevents me from seeing him as often and he's a hottie!!!
