Tuesday's Gone (Almost)



The Blindside was great y’all! I would say I do NOT think it deserves Best Picture but I can see why Sandra Bullock is nominated. It is definitely your typical, “from the ground” up story so it isn’t unique in that way but I would say it’s on a higher caliber than most movies like that. I thought it was really good. I love football so I liked seeing all the coaches (though I didn’t like remembering that Saban was LSU’s coach). It was funny how much Sandra Bullock’s character didn’t like Tennessee...we can totally relate to that in Alabama. Anyway, it was cute.

I don’t know if I slept wrong or messed up while exercising but my back is killing me today. It has been off for a couple of days but when I was on the elliptical this morning it hurt all the way from my butt to about the middle of my spine. It made me very sluggish on the machine and it has been hurting since. I took some ibuprofen and it got better but I’m thinking I need some Bengay or something...any remedies you guys know about??? I know you aren’t supposed to exercise if you hurt like that but I know me and if I stop, I won’t start back. I’m laying off the elliptical a couple days anyway because I ran out of shows to watch on my iPod so I’m just going to do the Jillian Michaels workout for the rest of the week. I’m not sure if that will make it better or worse.

I’m doing well today besides a slight cornbread incident at Mr. Bill’s at lunch. I appreciate the encouraging words (Heather, Mom & Jordan)...you guys have no idea how much that helps! I’m still thinking about food but I am right on track.

I used to have an internet shopping addiction. I still sort of do but I have had to cut way back because I was buying something every week. It has been awhile since I perused the clothing sections online but I went on there today for a little bit and I noticed something that concerned me. I think this has always been like this but it irritates me. They charge at least $10 extra for an item of clothing if it’s “plus-sized.” I noticed that a coat today was much more expensive because it wasn’t the same size as the “regular” sizes. I realize that their argument is there is more fabric used...ok there is no way that “plus-sized” garments have $10 worth of extra fabric. It is yet another example of isolation from clothing manufacturer’s. It’s tricky because there really isn’t any way around it. If you got more junk in the trunk than most people...you are going to pay more for clothes whether it be in the additional charges or at a specialty store like Lane Bryant. I guess they really want you not to be fat so they don’t even have to have a “plus” category. I mean I know I’m all soft and squishy but I’m not GIGANTIC (no judgment to those who are) and I don’t think I should have to suffer financially because I need the 1X instead of the XL in a coat.

Anyway, I guess that was my rant for the day. “Peace and Blessings.” If y’all want to see a funny video and the source of that quote, go to Youtube and type in “My Push Up Bra Will Help Me Get ManBack.” It’s pretty funny.



The song below was written by James Horner, Barry Mann, Cynthia Weil and I love it but I know it originally from the 1986 movie, An American Tail (one of mine and my dad’s FAVORITE movies). You can get the movie version on Youtube. I HIGHLY recommend this...it made me cry.

“Somewhere out there beneath the pale moonlight
Someone's thinking of me and loving me tonight

Somewhere out there someone's saying a prayer
That we'll find one another in that big somewhere out there

And even though I know how very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star

And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
It helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky

Somewhere out there if love can see us through
Then we'll be together somewhere out there
Out where dreams come true

And even though I know how very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star

And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
It helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky

Somewhere out there if love can see us through
Then we'll be together somewhere out there
Out where dreams come true.” Somewhere Out There

  1. Well I have a trick to ease muscle soreness. Start with a hot bath-so hot you have to stay still when you first get in. Use epsom salt in the water. When you get out,dry off, then take the ICY HOT deoderant-like stick and make ONE pass with it over the sore muscles. ONE PASS ONLY! That stuff can burn pretty bad when you have open pores, so if you can't take the heat, just get in the shower and wash with soap and water. Get ready for some intenseness...(is that a word?) ANYway...you'll fee so much better in the morning. -HAG

  2. A) I'm sorry I'm behind on your blog, but I'm catching up now!
    B) I think it is so offensive and rude to have to pay extra for a bigger size. I hate that...it's pretty humiliating honestly.

    D) Refer to C many, many times.
