Trim Spa, Baby!

I have my own version of Trim Spa: The Stomach Virus! Thanks to the old but trusty sickness, I have lost 5lbs in just a few days. Record! Thanks for making me sick, stomach virus.
On a better note, I had a good weekend full of activity. Shopping, friends, food...but didn't touch my pile of clothes that is still on my floor. My closet is just screaming for somebody to fill it's shelves & hangers. But it can wait. I have mastered the art of procrastination.

Lost Blog

I can’t even begin to tell you how upset I am that my blog post was lost. Its something I put time in, that is now floating who knows where. I should start saving them, as a separate document before publishing. Oh well. Anyway, things here are going well. The quietness is such a welcome change to my busy hectic life in NY. We’ve been back and forth for so long, so to know that I’m not going anywhere for a while is a relief.

Like I was saying in my lost blog post, I’m not one for big goodbyes. In my eyes, it’s not really goodbye anyway, as much as it is “see you later”. I may visit, or you may visit. I hope you do get to visit, because I love visitors and this should be a cheap little getaway. In the time that we’ve had this house, I’ve already had a number of guests and hope to add more to the list: My friend Gata, my aunt Bernie, my Mom, my Grandma, my aunt Anabelle, Erica & Aaron, Anthony’s Dad, Anthony’s cousin Wilbur from Nicaragua, Karin, more of Anthony’s family members and their friends: Rafael, Ania, Bryan, Esmeralda, Anita, Juan Carlos, as well as guests in our leave: the South African family who are now in Costa Rica (Lebeau & Bodine, if you’re reading, I better hear excellent Spanish rolling off your tongues!) and lastly Ruth & her mom Mary. I’m sure I’m forgetting someone. Ha.

I am the Queen of Procrastination, as my closet is finished, and I have lots of clothes to hang or put in a pile for giveaway. I still don’t have a bedroom set (although I do have a mattress) because I’m so darn picky. I’m loving my Senseo Coffee machine. Ruth and her mom bought us a garbage can from Costco. The lid opens with the wave of your hand. It’s cool. It felt so weird driving to the drugstore this morning. Suburban life is strange. I got a new Thai spot and an Italian spot. The Italian spot is great, the Thai is ok – not Thai Pavilion, but it would have to do for now. Mmm I’m hungry now. I got this reed oil diffuser to put in my bathroom – I love it. It's October and it's still stinking hot.

Little by little, everything is coming together. I just have to force myself to do a little each day.

Pinch an Inch

I've gained a little bit of weight, noticeably to myself. You know how you have this feeling that something just ain't right when you wear your clothes, but you ignore that little voice...then when you get on a scale, it's like Ooooooh! Sudden awareness and self consciousness that will be with you until you drop the poundage. I mean, people say they can't tell, but I definitely can tell. It's annoying. I blame it all on when I was training for two weeks; I had to eat out all the time. And just in the past summer months I had lost some considerable weight, so the gain is really not cool. I don't really have that much of a sweet tooth, so hopefully just eating a little less than usual will help. I'm not ready to join a gym just yet as I am still settling. I don't really believe in diets, I believe in eating smaller portions, more often during the day so as to not binge when you are starving. They play soccer over here which is wonderful. I definitely will be going weekly to get my game on. Ha!

On The Road Again

I lost my patience with this Picasa/Blogger thing. I'm posting the pictures now, when my orginal post chooses to appear, then I will replace this post with that one (because I refuse to rewrite what I've already written).

Bratty Rantings!

I created a post in Picasa including photo's and text. I saved it as a draft, and it's taking forever to post to Blogger! I am getting more and more angry everytime I log in and it's not there. This is not the first time I had a delay, but it's the first time it's taking a couple of hours. I think there's some glitches with the new Blogger Beta release and all.


So you'll see the post when you see it.
