I completely ran out of time to post last night, so I am posting from work. Brittny, regarding giving myself a really good treat to make up for my shots, see my comment to your post :)
Yesterday at work, the power (inexplicably) went out for about 45 minutes. What is it about that sort of thing that makes grown women gleefully giggle like schoolgirls? Within two minutes of losing power, one of my co-workers showed up at my office with a Coke and a candy bar. Work time was OVER! There was actually an audible groan from around the office when power was restored. You'd think this was a terrible place to work and they kept us chained to the desks! (It's not and they don't.) It's just so exciting to have a break in the normal schedule.
I just reread that paragraph and although it is sad and somewhat embarassing, I am going to leave it for you all to ponder.
I've been a little miffed lately because I have had comments from several people lately that imply that they are surprised I am going to dental school. I don't think they mean me, personally, but just that I'm a WOMAN and I'm going to dental school. This surprises me, because I really thought in this day and age that was not shocking. Of course one of the people was my kooky old great-aunt, so I guess you have to take some of that kind of thing with a grain of salt. I don't really take it personally, because I know my capabilities. I sometimes feel like those of us who actually use our brains pay for the actions of those who think acting stupid is attractive. Oh well, I'm not getting my soapbox out today.
I have a food confession. My husband and I have been exercising and really trying to eat right. He is trying to lose a few pounds and I am really just trying to tone up (why do I suddenly have grandmother flab under my arms?) and get into better shape. We've really been doing well. We joined a gym, we've been going consistently and we generally stick to our "diet" pretty well. However, I cannot MAKE myself stop eating a bag of chips for breakfast every morning. Yes, breakfast. The meal your mom always told you was the most important of the day. I stumbled upon these chips quite by accident. They are in a snack machine in the basement of the building I work in. They are Snyder's of Hanover Hot Buffalo Wing potato chips. I tell myself they really aren't THAT BAD, because the bag happily informs me every day that they contain 0% trans fat. I don't know if my husband knows. He does see me get $.50 out of the change stash every morning. I think he is just nice enough not to mention it. Hey, I do wash it down with a DIET Coke!
Well, I must get back to work. Hope you girls have a great day!
