Last night I was watching the Super Bowl…well not really…it was on in the background and I paid attention when it sounded like someone had a touchdown or when commercials came on. But still…it was on. I happened to be paying attention when the Toyota Rav4 commercial came on. It ended with the song “I … More I. Wish. I. Were. A. Little. Bit. Taller.
So, as you know I’ve been on this weight loss adventure. I started in June and have lost 30 of my desired 40 lbs. I feel and look great. I’ve been “forced” to buy new clothes. It’s been a fabulous transformation. You know what is not fabulous? The f-cking ten lbs that I still have … More The. Way. I. Make. Me. Feel.

I’m a big Stephen King fan. Since junior high, I have read his books over and over, and am always excited when I see a new 800 page hardcover in bookstores bearing his name. It may be for this reason that I sometimes, ahem…or typically, create crazy stories about people/places/situations at which my husband just … More Things. Are. Lookin’. Up.
You should know that anytime I’m able to quote Ladies Love Cool James, I will absolutely do just that. I’ve long known, if not consciously certainly subconsciously, that when I work hard and do my best good things come my way. When I complain, lament, do things half a-sed, and pout like a child, however, … More Doin’. It. And. Doin’. It. And. Doin’. It. Well.
