Bye bye! I won't be posting until Thanksgiving, probably, so have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone. We're leaving in about 2 hours - yippee! If only I can get over this fear of flying...

So I get to spend my day-after-Thanksgiving in the Dr.'s office figuring out why I'm broken. So much for Christmas decorating and bringing home the puppy. I guess those will be my evening activities. Yuck.
Heather's Friday Five
2. Name five things in your freezer: The top layer of our wedding cake, frozen juice, a big bag of chicken breasts, ground beef, and lemon sorbet
3. Name five things under your kitchen sink: dish soap, rubber gloves (for dishes), a package of sponges, plant watering can, Comet
4. Name five things around your computer: pictures of Joe's grandparents, a teeny beeny Spider, a CD of wedding photos, a big British road sign with "Kerry - Ciarrai" on it, a Koosh ball

Feel the burn. I had a good workout last night. I always do more when Joe's not there. He's going tonight though, so I'll try to change that. We're trying to make sure we're feeling active before we go walk 1,000 miles in New Orleans. Does anyone know a good exercise to work on that annoying part of the hip that never looks quite right when you put on a couple of pounds? I know a kick one, but I'm always afraid I'll put my foot through my china cabinet. Anyone?

For the first time in 360 days, I tried on my wedding dress. And... It still fits!!! I'm stunned. It was fitted then, so I wasn't sure if it would fit now. I really do weigh what I did last year, though it's hard to believe that I've been battling this extra 15-20 pounds since last summer. I like the dress better now, I think, than I did then. Then, it was the dress that "wasn't quite perfect." Now, it's part of my happiest memories, and looks just stunning. Good thing Joe's working now; he'd think I'd gone nuts. :)
I hate that I can't talk to my girlfriends on Delphi anymore. It is driving me batty. Every couple of weeks I get a chance to post on there, because the site is blocked at work. And it's not enough. Darned outrageous. I love these women, most of them helped me plan my wedding, and we've been through hell and back, supporting each other through anything. Tonight I just feel sad. Prudential said they were lifting the restrictions "sometime soon" but as yet I still can't get in. And I'm so sick of sitting in front of the computer at work, I never feel like getting on at night. I feel like I'm losing a dozen friends. So, to those of you who read this (and I know a couple do), I LOVE YOU GUYS, and I MISS YOU TERRIBLY. Forgive me for my spurts of posts, then silence. I think of you every day.
Good morning, all! And a big happy birthday to my mom today! We had a nice dinner last night, so nothing exciting tonight. But at least I will finally get my Metro back and park the Mazda again. It finally keeled over yesterday, though Joe was able to jump start it and get us home from my work. But I don't have a desire to ever drive it again. I'm in Joe's behemoth truck today while he picks up the Metro. Good little car, I've missed you.
