I keep starting a post then realize that my life is pretty damn boring so I “X” out and go find something else to do.
So here is the excitement of the last several days.
I had been losing weight and was doing well. In November I was down 25 pounds but somehow stalled. Since then I have put a bit of that back on. It is so easy to put weight on, isn’t it? Last night I realized I need to step back up to the plate and try to get this last 25 pounds off. Today started out so well, as it always does with me, then around dinner I lose momentum and end up eating everything. The only thing I didn’t eat today was black jelly beans because they are pieces of Satan’s shit. That reminds me of a former employer who gave me licorice candy once and I kind of freaked out because I hate licorice. I spit it out and she got really mad. Looking back it was funny because she was a bully and really mean.
Today I got my hair cut by a new person. A man, to be more specific. I have not had a man cut my hair since I was about 14 so it was kind of different. It got all uncomfortable when he was washing my hair and this song came on the radio.
“Baby let your hair down
Let me run my fingers through it
We can be ourselves now
Go ahead, be foolish
No one’s on the clock now
Lying in this simple moment
You don’t gotta worry now
Just let your hair down”
Of course I said something and he laughed. Anyway, he did a great job and my hair is a lot lighter. My hair is really, really thick. In fact, my previous stylists have requested I ask for an extra 20 minutes during my regular cuts just to thin it. I should post a picture from when I was a little because my hair is bigger than the rest of me.
Ah, what else? Yesterday I almost changed the sheets on my bed from flannel to cotton but I am glad I didn’t because it is cold, windy and rainy today. It is a nice day to be wrapped in flannel.
Anyway, that is about it. Marisa de los Santos has a new book out and I am going to go read it.
