Crazy Shenanigans

Sometimes I forget things. I mean... we all forget things right??? I feel like a bad sister because I didn't realize until late Tuesday night that yesterday was my sister's birthday. Granted, I remembered BEFORE her birthday, but not until the night before. I usually have a much better memory than that! I put a post on Facebook yesterday morning about her birthday and shared a picture of the two of us.

Around 10 am I get a text from her asking if I'm still taking her to CG (a local coffee shop where I used to work as a barista) for her birthday. I text back and said sure. But I mean, seriously, how does she remember that sometime back in November I offered to maybe take her to CG for her birthday??? She has learning disabilities and can't remember anything, but she remembers that. LOL Anyway, I had offered to take her to lunch... We were debating between going yesterday and today... She said she wanted to go today because my mom took her out to breakfast. Then my mom got the bright idea that I could not take a lunch, leave work at 4, go to Curves and workout, go home and shower, then go pick my sister up and take her out for dinner. I asked my boss if this was okay and he said yes so we had a plan...

I didn't want to miss Curves yesterday because I didn't think I'd be able to go today... Well, by the time 4 pm rolled around for me to leave, I didn't want to go to Curves. I didn't want to go at a different time when my usual people aren't there. I know, silly reason, but that's what I was feeling. So, I text my sister when I left work to see if she wanted to go to CG then instead of around 6. She said sure so I went and picked them up. My niece was so happy to see me! Love that little girl!

We got to CG and the owner was there. She talked to us as we had both worked there before. Then we ordered. I got their special which was a cup of soup and a grilled cheese and tomato flatbread. I got loaded potato soup. Misty got a chicken ranchero wrap with honey mustard instead of ranch. Hailey got a kids grilled cheese (basically a regular grilled cheese). Misty and I both got regular sized chai teas and Hailey got a fountain soda. Our total? $26.10. I was not impressed because my food was so little by the time I went to bed I was starving again. I doubt I go back there anytime soon. We could have gotten miserably stuffed at just about any other restaurant in town.

We left quickly because Hailey was being a turd. She wasn't cranky, but she wasn't listening. She was smiling and waving at everyone, standing in the booth and jumping, and squealing and talking loud. She wasn't eating. She was bugging the ladies in the booth behind us. I was like, "Misty, hurry and eat, we'll get Hailey a to-go box cause we're leaving."

We went to the video rental place after that. Since it was Misty's birthday, she got a free rental. She got Sinister. I don't know how she liked it, but she did watch it. While we were there, I signed up for an account. I have never had my own rental account anywhere. For the first 30 days, I get unlimited half price rentals. I got The Perks of Being a Wallflower on Blu-Ray. I LOVED it! I'm totally investing in it when I have some spare money.

Anyway... I don't get my body... Last night, I ate an entire pint of soft serve twist ice cream. I didn't work out at all. When I weighed this morning, I was down almost 3 pounds for the week (I doubt it stays there). How did I lose weight when I ate like crap? I dunno.

I'm having a healthy dinner tonight and I'm excited. I'm making stir fry for the first time. I've got some chicken breasts that I'm going to cut up and sauté in some olive oil. Then I've got three bags of stir fry veggies that I'm going to steam in some chicken broth, soy sauce, minced garlic, ginger, red pepper flakes, and curry powder. I'm hoping it turns out delish!

I'm also not working out... again. I know. I'm horrible. I was on such a good streak too! My best friend is getting married in April. I promised her that whenever she was ready, I'd help her order her wedding invites. She text me earlier and asked if I was free tonight to help her get them ordered so we can fill them out and get them mailed. I said sure. We're also expecting a huge snow/ice storm. Not looking forward to that!!!

Another thing I wanted to talk about... I hate skin tags. I realize they're hereditary and since both of my parents have them, I get the joy of having them too. I also realize that obesity can aggravate the situation. So, anyway, I got my first skin tag in high school. It was on my armpit and it hurt when I shaved. It royally pissed me off one day and I tugged on it and twisted really hard. It hurt really bad. The next day, it turned black and fell off. Amazing! I have a few skin tags on the back of my neck currently.. I don't like them, but hey, my hair usually covers them so it's not that big of a deal... except for the one this one that was right along the neckline of my shirts. My shirts rubbed on it and irritated it and it started to get bigger and bigger. Last night I'd had enough of it so I tried the tugging and twist method. It didn't do anything though. It didn't get all blood red like the one under my armpit did. So then I searched online and read that if you're careful, you can just cut them off. So I did. LOL I took my little sewing scissors and washed them up. Then I got some toilet paper, a band aid, and some triple antibiotic ointment. I got in front of the mirror, pulled on the tag with one hand, and cut it with the other. It hurt, but not as bad as I was expecting. It also bled, but not as much as I thought it would. I patted it dry with the toilet paper, put some TBO on it and slapped a bandaid on there. This morning it was just a little scabby place. Yay!

Okay, I'm going to go, I think this entry is long enough. Adios!


  1. I read The Perks of Being A Wallflower so I want to see the movie. I'll have to rent it from Netflix.

  2. Yowch. I want to clip some skin tags too but I'm terrified of pain LOL. I just try to ignore them :P

    Get back to your workouts lady!! :)
