"Things I think" or "Ten things"

1. Went on a walk with Dan...not too far today...only 2 miles. I had my 3 lb weights. Another one of my coworkers went and snapped a picture of us. I look at it and sigh heavily...I have a ways to go. But then I look at Dan...who has been going diligently for about 2 months now... He is hard pressed to see any real and notable progress... he was unable to weigh himself when he started and all his pants were draw strings. I am there to tell him that his stamina is increasing (it is), his face is thinning (it is...he now has a neck) and the massive weight around his waist is riding lower and is a lot less solid. Progress. I am proud of him. And go me punching the air with 3 lb weights.

2. I liked Cars...but I have quibbles about the story. I'll wait for everyone to see it before blathering on about it. Visually it is a feast for the eyes. Wow.

3. I've gotten myself involved in a project where I am reading a book out loud and recording it. I try to do a few chapters a night. It's such a good way to decompress from the day, plus it's good for my voice.

4. Work is getting increasingly frustrating. My morale is not high.

5. Been making placemats with my mom over the weekend. I am delighted as to how they are coming out. :)

6. My little brother goes off to Basic this week.

7. Speaking of Cars and my little brother, we went to see it together. Later that evening we went to play D&D with a few of his friends who were...not welcoming. They crossed over from unfriendly to downright rude. I left early. I will not be going back. Too bad...it's a fun way to spend an evening but not if you don't enjoy the company.

8. Today there is no #8.

9. I need another crystal ball to help me determine the next 6 months.

10. I am saving up my pennies for a mac mini... probably not until the second half of July though. Got another bill to pay off. Whew!

In #7 what do you think the source of the problem was?

Have you seen it yet? I don't want to spoil anything or color your experience.

Nah, I didn't mean the movie... I meant why the friends became rude such that you decided to not return.

Didn't you say that Dan had lost a bunch of weight though? He looks like he is seriously working there...total dedication. :-)
I first thought you were talking on your phone, until I realized that it was a weight you had up to your ear! Your legs are looking really muscular...the walking must be doing you good!

Re number 2, would you recommend it? I'm usually not a huge fan of kid movies, but I loved Toy Story (in fact it ranks as one of my all-time favorite movies.) And Babe...while not a cartoon is another fave. How does it compare to them?

Yeah, I've never had to worry about muscle on my legs... mostly it's just trying to pull sludge off the top!

I would absolutely recommend. It's not as good as Toy Story...but you will enjoy it. :)

Had I just seen this photo randomly, I would have thought you were my friends JB and Bethany. It's kind of freaky, really.

No number EIGHT?! My world is shaken.

I am feeling very unenthused about cars. Mainly because Kai makes me pretend to be the car half the time when we are driving, so the thought of a whole movie of talking cars makes me feel a little ill. There's only so much pretending-to-be-a-car that a woman can take, you know?

Heh... go see it. You'll really enjoy it. Also there's a short in the front that is screamy cute. :)

"Lady in Red..." and so on and so forth.
