*I’m tired of my stomach being in knots and feeling like it is Joan of Arc being burned at the steak. Ulcers suck. I want them to go away.
*The whole running/gym thing is discouraging me today. I’ve worked my ass off to get to where my husband (And others) can just run after never going to the gym.
*I have been suffering from “Face leprosy” for months. It is a breakout on my chin and lower cheeks that is just pissing me the hell OFF. I have never had skin this bad for this long. I blame stress and feeling like suck. BUT. I have been religious in caring for it and it is only marginally better despite great skin products. I am getting really tired of feeling if I leave the house without foundation on people will do a double-take before running away and screaming, “Dear God, what is that THING?!”
*I love my car and we so needed it, but good HELL it takes a big chunk of our budget. I am a bit panicked. EEK. I think I have been the most kick-ass wife in dealing with being poor. It doesn’t take a ton to make me happy. Give me a Diet Coke and the ability to go to dinner with friends and I’m good. I don’t want to go back to the point of going through the couch cushions to look for change for a Slurpee. I don’t have to have a ton, I just have to have enough. Please let it stay that way.
*”The Messiah” is almost over for me. I am worried that it is going to make me sad. I’ve been working so hard for it, I don’t know what to do when it’s over and done. I got an invitation to audition for an opera company in SLC in April and for one glorious, wild moment I thought I would. Then reality sank in and I have to say, it was a pretty hard moment for me.
*I had half of my face drilled yesterday. Another dentist appointment. SO grand. I have two more to go. Apparently, even though I switched to Diet Coke three years ago, the 10 years of hard-core, regular Coke drinking did major damage to my teeth. It is worse because I haven’t been to the dentist for 3 years because of major dental phobias and I didn’t have insurance. (YES, now you all know! Throw rotten tomatoes and shun me. Do your freaking, judgemental worst. It can’t be worse than the treatment I get from the dental hygienist, OK?) The dentist never uses enough numbing agent to begin with and I always feel the drill. Then he does overkill and paralyzed half my face for hours. I now know what I will look like if I am ever the victim of a stroke. It is not pretty, my friends.
*My new blog page is coming along really well. I am digging many things about how Kerfloppy is organizing it. She rocks the house.
*James made his theatrical debut as a cowboy hat-wearing cow. He was the best cow in the whole herd. I’m “Udderly” proud to be his momma. (Sorry, I just could.not.help.myself.)*It is Easter time. THAT means it is time for Russle Stovers Chocolate-covered Marshmallow Eggs. MMM… God bless the fabulous deliciousness that is thine. MMM…*My friends rock my world. Without each of them I would be lost. Ok, I would be lost more than I am now and “Living in a van down by the river”. Actually, I guess now that my van is dead it would technically be “A station wagon down by the river”, but you get my drift.
*I heart fries from Wendy’s.
Everyone always harps on how freaking terrible and bad they are for you. Well, I ORDERED THEM ANYWAY. Even though I only ordered the small size and didn’t finish them all, and even though my relationship with fries (And all fast food) is very long, complex and complicated, it was one of those moments that just makes life completely happy, content and worth all the flippin’ hassle, That’s a pretty big freakin’ accomplishment for fries, huh? :)
*I’m filming a new video with Karen and Bridgy tonight. It’s been awhile since I’ve done a fun one. I hope it works out how I want. Heh. heh. heh.
*Small gym towels suck. I can see being economical and not having bath sheets, but could you please get ones a bit bigger so they cover my boobs and ass at the same time? Thanks.
*I’m freezing. I want it to be deep spring.
*I am trying to find a new ring tone for my when my parents call. It is going to be “Darth Vadar’s Theme” from the original Star Wars movies. Heh.
* My twin sister isn’t going to come see me in The Messiah. I don’t really care, I guess. I’ve been to see her in tons of stuff. It doesn’t matter that she has a ton more professional opera credits under her belt than I do, it will always be a flippin’ competition to her. She is suffering because she can’t really sing anymore so I do understand, but still…To have even invited her is a huge step for me. I’m still putting it under the “Meh” category because I knew she wouldn’t come. No big surprise there.
* I am dying to see “Wild Hogs” and “Blades of Glory”. DYING, I tell you. (No need to tell me my movie choices suck. My friend Brian can adequately summize this on behalf of all of you. And he has over the years. Quite well. REPEATEDLY.)
*My eyebrows look pretty hot today. Cool.
