Dog Day Afternoon

Hello! Somehow, I have lost a day in a vacuum or something because I thought it was Tuesday all day today and Monday all day yesterday. The good news is that Saturday will be a pleasant surprise when I find out it's not Friday. It has been CUHrazy at work lately. Honestly, I like to keep as busy as possible...makes the day go by fast. I am about to watch American Idol. I can NOT wait until the auditions are over and the top 12 or 24 or however many are weeded out so I can pick a favorite. I wish y'all were lucky enough to see a certain "American Idol" dance that a certain friend mine does to the intro music. Priceless.

Quick question...if you had a dog and that dog lifted its leg and peed a little in the corner of your bedroom...would you think to yourself...well...fido already peed a little in my bedroom...I think he should just go ahead and cover the place...would you want him to pee on your bed and clothes in addition to the corner since you were already going to have to clean that corner up? Um, no. So, if that's the case...then why is it that when we dieters succumb to a biscuit in the morning, or a piece of chocolate cake after lunch, we decide to screw it all and cheat the whole day? I'm TOTALLY guilty of this. I did it Saturday. I made a conscience decision to cheat the whole day because I knew I would be going over my points that night. Even though I have a tendency to have this mindset, I think the concept is ridiculous. I'd like to say that I will make an effort not to ditch Weight Watchers for a whole day or week because I have an extra piece of ham on my sandwich but I think that having those moments is all part of the process. Sometimes, we need to feel justified...so it's ok...do your best to get back on the horse every time...even if it's every meal...YOU CAN DO IT!

So-I've been putting out a lot of money the past couple of weeks and it's only going to get better when I get to take my dog to the vet for his shots (not the one that I mentioned above that peed in a corner) and that usually costs at least $100. Has everything always cost at least $100? Was there ever a time when things weren't this expensive? Oh well...TOMORROW IS TRIVIA NIGHT. It is especially cool because the trivia league "officially" starts tomorrow. There are points available every week and a regional competition at the end of the year...truth be told...we aren't that great but we have fun and who knows??? Maybe we will make it to the next level. Good night! Sleep tight!

Here's a few pics of my Pacey...he lives with my parents but I pay child support...he costs a lot but I LOVE him (interesting how one dog analogy turned into a whole theme...I can't help it). He doesn't like to be woken up or dressed up...but he loves treats and to be sweet.








"It's been a hard day's night, and I've been working like a dog
It's been a hard day's night, I should be sleeping like a log
But when I get home to you I find the things that you do
Will make me feel alright

You know I work all day to get you money to buy you things
And it's worth it just to hear you say you're gonna give me everything
So why on earth should I moan, 'cause when I get you alone
You know I feel okay
When I'm home everything seems to be right
When I'm home feeling you holding me tight,tight,yeah
It's been a hard day's night, and I've been working like a dog
It's been a hard day's night, I should be sleeping like a log
But when I get home to you I find the things that you do
Will make me feel alright" A Hard Days Night-The Beatles
