Whew! [Dec. 22nd, 2007|07:25 pm]

I can't believe it been nearly a week since I've posted - I swear I thought I was posting, really.

Some good things that happened this week
- I (finally) got my car washed. At the cool car wash/diner/hair salon place. 
- I bought six more skeins of yarn and two more sets of knitting needles for next to nothing. 
- I got a present for one of the two people I never know what to get.
- I bought a pair of size 8 jeans! And they aren't even tight! And it doesn't count that that brand runs big!
- The Boy totally rocked out at my sister's retirement party. Afterwards, I said, I didn't know you could dance like that. He replied, Neither did I!
- I (finally) put some color on my hair. But not at the cool car wash/diner/hair salon place.

Some not-as-good things that happened this week
- Major major program breakage at work. Not any of my code, fortunately, but still breakage. We got it fixed, though.
- I still have two Christmas presents to buy, because I forgot about one I hadn't gotten yet.
- Husband's front door key broke off in the lock. Just when I was about to say something about how quiet the house has been lately

It's always nice when the good outweighs the bad.

My car hadn't been washed in ages. And I park it under a sweetgum tree that's been dropping pollen and sap for months now. I wasn't even sure it could get clean!

What is the cool carwash diner hairsalon place? Do you drop you car off, get your hair done and eat while you wait?

I love when the good outweigh the bad...

It's one of those "brushless" assembly line places, where your car runs on a track and goes through the wash while you watch, and then they do some hand-detailing when it comes out. But inside, where you watch the cars go through, is a lunch counter and a hair salon (just one station), up front by the cash register. I think it's like a 3-in-one family business. They also have a "prayer wall" where you can write prayer requests on post-its, and then after they close they have a "prayer team" that prays for all the requests posted that day. And outside it's all landscaped in a tropical theme, with a waterfall and little grass huts.

Wow, I don't think my car has been washed since this summer!

Congratulations on the jeans! Does that mean you've lost or firmed up? Have you been trying?

I wish I had lost or firmed up, but I'm actually starting to creep up again. I think these jeans just run really big...even the eights are a little loose, but my "fat jeans" are snug.

Yay for single digit pants and clean cars!

Hiss....for broken codes and pissy houses. :O)

I only wear Old Navy it's good for my ego. They run really big, and it makes me feel good, while I'm shoveling more food into my face.
