Sheniqua’s chubby little ass is still being kicked to the curb over here in Care Bear Land in case you were wondering. Even egg-shaped Reeses and chocolate bunnies couldn’t stop me! I still managed to lose ½ pound which brings my total lost to 14 lbs now. 17 lbs to go to hit goal.
My workouts have slowed down this week in comparison to my other weeks. It’s batshit crazy around here lately because of board meetings and classes and the election. Then there’s that thing called parenting and wife-ing and house-owner-ing. Sometimes I can’t find time to breathe – much less work out….so I’ve stayed vigilant with my food choices and it still worked.
For the record:
54 workouts out of 90 days for the year
43.2 hours in time for the year
17086.5 calories burned for the year
140.4 miles gone for the year (259.6 to goal of 400)
Remember last week when I was pissed off? To make a long story short, the really, really old and ill gentleman that is running against Rambo for the Mayor position decided to go door to door and hand out a 1.5 page letter that pretty much just slams me and Rambo and others on the Board.
I was pissed first and then it became laughable once I realized I could easily disprove every line the man wrote. And as more and more people called us and told us their reactions or asked us questions – it was clear that this man did more damage than good to his campaign.
Rambo and I decided to do nothing. Absolutely nothing. We want no part of a smear campaign and this man tainted the election enough. The chips will fall where they may. I’m not pissed anymore but all the explaining and phone calls and staying strong and all of it – is exhausting. Sometimes it’s just hard to keep doing what you believe in.
The election is today. Here’s hoping….
Oh and in case you were wondering, my kids didn’t wake up sobbing this morning. Which is good for them because if they did, I had made plans to sell them. Cheap.
I want about 5 days off – with the guarantee that no work will pile up here at any of the jobs while I’m gone – to do “things”. Things like filing. Or springing up the landscaping after the winter. Or finishing designing my jeans (I cut up and drew on a pair of Silvers I have because it seemed like fun at the time). Or do more puzzles (I do jigsaw puzzles a ton. About 2 nights per 1000 piece puzzle. Very relaxing and keeps my mind off other things.) Or clean. Novel idea – cleaning. Jesus.
The only other exciting thing that happened this week was that my 12 year old brought home the sex paperwork. Yup. The whole – we are going to be learning about puberty and sex soon so can your child participate – paperwork.
This morning I said to Watermelon, “So – do you want to learn about sex or what?”
Rambo looked up and said, “God. Can you not just blurt it out like that to my 12 year old baby?”
Suck it up buttercup – itsahappenin.
Then he said, “Sure – send her. Then we don’t have to do it.”…as he laughed.
He knows I’ve already done it.
There you go – more randompants shit than you can shake a stick at.
