la coo ca racha.

The weekend is upon us and that makes me glad. So, I feel like I will do more reporting on the last 12-24 hours rather than talking about food in this post but it seems like a lot has happened. First, I spent ENTIRELY too much money yesterday. I discovered a new accessory store in town and it’s AWESOME. I am really into earrings and purses and I was overwhelmed by their selection. I almost cried. After work, I had to buy special paper that I have to print my thesis out on and that cost me $25! Then I got my hair cut which was $30. I went to look for a pair of jeans at this store right across the street from the salon because I only have one pair of jeans and ended up with 2 shirts instead so that was another $25. I had to get gas: $31 and then I had to refill my prescriptions for $35...so yesterday wasn’t a good day money wise. I make a decent living but I have loans I am going to have to start paying, a credit card I need to get down and a savings account I need to get back up so when I have a day I spend a lot of money...it makes me all panicky.
When I got to my parents, I watched the season premiere of Grey’s Anatomy. I’m not sure if you watch this or not but somehow that show always outdoes itself when it comes to being EXTREMELY sad. Grey’s has been my favorite show since I started watching it 3 or 4 years ago except for the 3 weeks after the fairy incident that I try to forget. I started crying uncontrollably after the first 4 seconds. I mean I had a long day and wasn’t in the greatest mood AND I KNEW it was going to be sad so all that combined...well...it was ugly.
While we were watching, I saw a giant creepy crawly making its way along the wall. I should say that I hate bugs. I am not interested in butterflies, lady bugs or lightning bugs...I hate them all. I am genuinely scared of them...I AM TERRIFIED OF ROACHES...they are my greatest fear. They are disgusting and heinous and after I see one (especially at night), the chance of a restful sleep is out of the window. Also, I have what I call a 6th Roach Sense...it’s like I know when they are going to be around. I could feel this roach’s presence before I ever saw it. It went under the TV and THANK GOD Jordan was there. I told him I saw it and right at that time it showed its ugly face. If you are from the south you know there is a difference between a regular roach and a BROWNBACK or WOOD ROACH...these are GIANT roaches with wings and they come AT you. It doesn’t matter if you live in a box or mansion...in Alabama...the roaches don’t discriminate. Jordan got up and against what he would normally do (chase it down with Raid) he stomped on the devil. When he lifted his foot up...the roach RAN IN MY DIRECTION...then...Jordan (my hero) did the bravest thing I’ve EVER SEEN. He lifted his foot up, stomped AGAIN and drug that Satanic beast all over the den carpet...THEN...if that weren’t enough...he shielded my vision so I couldn’t see the debris. I mean...who could ask for more? Despite his efforts, I was still very jumpy the rest of the night.
Tonight, I am going to dinner with my Oma and then after that I am going to help a friend’s son get some games on his new iTouch. After that, the goal is to work on school so I can actually enjoy my weekend but something tells me that Sunday is going to suck. Tomorrow is the 1st SEC game of the season...I’m going...even though it’s supposed to pour the whole game...ROLL TIDE!

  2. Heather, I had to let you know how great you are doing. My 10 month old weighed in at 22 lbs this week, which is the 90 percentile (so she's a little chunky for her age). Pat yourself on the back- you've lost sight of the fact that technically, you've lost the weight of a small child. And when you tote around a 22 pound child, you know...it's a lot of weight. Don't give up, Keep trying. You are inspirational and hilarious. I think you should feel empowered.
