Tuesday Truths

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

Here are some truthful facts for you this Tuesday:

1. We went home for five days and I abandoned my diet. I mean, not totally -- I did put raspberry vinaigrette on my salad one night instead of ranch. Ha. But I also ate two bags of mini doughnuts almost completely by myself (I think my mom might've had three doughnuts). And I ate french fries a LOT. I weighed myself this morning and the scale said I weighed more than when I started this diet. Eeik! But I know weight fluctuates, so I'm hoping that by the end of the week I'll be back down. We'll see....

2. Working out felt really good this morning. I am mostly typing this to combat #1, which makes me feel terrible. Did I mention that I only worked out once while I was home? Not good.

3. I'm not quite ready for the work week to begin, even though I just had a five-day vacation.

4. Speaking of vacation: two more weeks until Stephanie and I leave for Puerto Rico! I can barely wait.

5. I have a nice camera now, but I don't know how to use it. I would like to learn while I'm in PR. I can imagine nothing nicer than laying on a beach chair, sipping a diet coke, and reading my DSLR manual. Yes, please!

6. Morgantown, West Virginia {my hometown} has a fabulous car wash where you can vacuum your car for free. And as if that isn't enough, there is a machine that washes your floor mats. $3 buys you four minutes, which gives you enough time to run your mats through several times. Let it be known that I LOVE a clean car -- especially clean floor mats. So imagine my delight when the machine started working after only feeding it $1! It was seriously the best part of my Saturday. I think that says a lot about me.

7. Dexter and Brothers & Sisters are my two favorite TV shows at the moment.

8. Grammy is on a downhill slide, I think. It used to be that she had a few bad days mixed in with good ones. Now it seems that she has a few okay/good days mixed in with bad ones. It was hard to see her. I cried a lot. But I captured this cute photo of her & John Wesley making funny faces. Even though the light isn't right and it's kind of blurry, I will cherish it forever.

9. My friend Stephanie is considering this shower curtain for her newly-renovated bathroom, and I love it!

10. Do you do Swagbucks? We have gotten $40 in Amazon gift cards just from searching through them 3x/day (morning, noon, night). It's not a great search engine, but it's so easy to search a few terms, get your Swagbucks, and move on.

Search & Win

That's all I've got for you right now. I could tell you about how I am trying to find loose change to help pay for the iPad 2 I just bought, and how I've only found $0.53 so far, and how Wes thinks I am absolutely ridiculous, but that will have to wait for another day.... :)
