Yesterday, I blogged about my expanding belly (not due to pregnancy, but due to chocolate) and widening thighs (thanks to ice cream) and announced to the e-world that I would start counting points and I will. I promise, but if I were to count points today, my brain may explode by the very large numbers that are being calculated.
Today, my sister is visiting with her children and we are taking all of our four children (ages 3, 4, 6 & 7) to lunch because we are crazy and looking for a way to embarrass ourselves faster than dressing up as chickens and pecking random people on the head while singing "She Bangs." Well, I may be exaggerating a little bit because really they all LOVE! EACH OTHER! SO! MUCH! they really just kinda look at each other with hearts in their eyes and a smile on their face with birds chirping and flying around their heads. Unless, of course, one child takes another child's toy, then it's all over and divorce papers will be filed immediately.
Either way, we are going to a place with unlimited fries and really that is all that matters in the world.
Tonight, Brian and I are going on a date. (Reason number 1,239,512 not to count points) A date, do you hear me? Like dinner, beer and margaritas and then a movie. We haven't been on a date since early December, even though all of the Save Your Marriage!!!!!!! books tell you to date once a month or more often, well, we find that to be a little impossible. So, we've tucked away tonight to be alone. (I was also inspired by this post which nudged be gently to go this weekend, so thank you to Shalee.) Hopefully I'll have pictures of the Mister and I to share with the e-world to prove that I am married, that I have gained weight and that we did in fact get dressed and go out and were not in our pajamas at 8:30pm.
Seen any good movies lately? First of all, I admit that I have a fear of going to the movie theater, mainly because sitting in one spot doing nothing but looking straight ahead for two hours is painful, the thought causes me to break out in hives, but also because sitting for that long, with my hands doing nothing, typically leads me to popping chocolate and peanut butter into my mouth at a very unhealthy rate. Screw the popcorn. Screw the soda (or pop, if you live in my area). Bring on the chocolate. But in an effort to do something different besides going to Wal-Mart on a Friday night, we thought a movie would be divine. So, what are we going to see? I'm not sure. I don't want to see Blades of Glory with Will Ferrell, and I don't want to be scared, and I love Don Cheadle, I love him so much that if I were to meet him I would stuff him into my purse, take him home and make him live in my basement. So, that leads me to Reign Over Me. My only resignation is that Adam Sandler is in it, as a serious actor, and well that is frightening, but I'll just pop a glance over at Mr. Cheadle and I'll be just fine.
And for those of you who are wanting to join my weight loss journey with me, first of all, thank you and welcome, secondly I am working on a little project that most certainly will help me along and hopefully you, too. Things should be ready in 1-2 weeks, yip.pee. You have your warning, eat up that box of Ding Dongs and get ready.
