Lemme borrow that point...

I’m in a pretty good mood. It’s Friday, Grey’s Anatomy didn’t make me want to drive nails down my arms last night, I’m almost caught up on TV, my parents are coming home tomorrow, I turned in my last five poems that were due for school and at some point this weekend, I’m going to eat cake. Oh! Also, when I came home last night, I discovered that my brother had left the dogs outside, the backdoor open and my parent’s bathroom light on. So, I called him and told him he sucked and then hung up. After that, I wasn’t sure if I would be in a good mood again for the rest of the night but I saw in the mail where I am summoned to jury duty! I am kind of excited. I think it will be interesting. Some people think I’m crazy for being excited but I look forward to being a part of the process and doing my civic duty. For some reason, it makes me feel a little patriotic. Anyway, I may hate it and have horror stories...although I’m pretty sure because of confidentiality...I won’t be able to tell you...you know...the whole if I told you I’d have to kill you thing. I still have a pretty long to do list for this weekend with school and making sure my Dad doesn’t have a stroke when he comes in the house and something is out of place.
I discovered that if I lose over 1.4 pounds tomorrow morning that I have to go down a point. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I am very happy to lose weight and I hope I lose at least that but I HATE when it’s time to go down a point. It just doesn’t seem fair that the more weight I lose, the less food I get. I mean I understand the logic, the less you weigh, the less food you need to eat to maintain. It still sucks though. I know it’s only one point but you know, I might want that one point. I also think about the future and how inevitably, I WILL have to make some sacrifices. It may just be a beer here or a small fry there so I need to prepare myself for that. I usually end up with enough points at the end of the day to have a nice, fattening snack so one day I will probably have to give that up too. Last night, I had Baked Tostitos with this white cheese dip that my parents have in their refrigerator. Dang that stuff is good.
Well, as usual, I think I have crammed way too much on my weekend agenda and I will probably have to extend some of those tasks to next week but I do hope to get a lot done. I am cooking dinner Sunday night for my mom’s birthday celebration....any ideas on what I should make? She’s the typical, “I don’t care what you make” mom so I think I’m on my own. I want something in the beef and pork category probably since I don’t get to eat those that much. I will let you know what I decide. I think that’s all for today. I have GOT to get my priorities in order...though I’m OK with the blog being at the top.
