Because I have no idea what to write about but needing to write I'm going to cheat and steal my sister's idea for her post today.

Random Thoughts and Happenings

I paid a lot of our bills today. This is a big feat for me because I hate money and avoid it as much as possible. Derek and I have been working on it. I don't get pukey nervous (as much) at the thought of money and paying bills.

I'm avoiding eating right now. If Derek reads this I'm in so much trouble. I'm being serious. I talked to him on the phone a bit ago and the last thing he said to me was "don't forget to eat". I know what you're thinking 'who forgets to eat?' Actually, I do. I also hate it. GASP! I know it's weird to hate eating, but it's such a chore to me. Don't get me wrong, I love to cook and bake-it's wonderful. I also love a really good steak (blood rare by the way). I love Mexican food and junk food and mall Chinese food-I'm getting off track here. What was I writing about?

Oh ya, my eating avoidance. Avoiding food when you have a metabolism like mine is really bad too. I know anybody reading will probably hate my guts after this but here you go. If I skip a meal I can lose like 2 lbs and not willingly. It just happens. As a side note I'd like to say that obese people aren't the only who suffer with their weight. Being too skinny sucks. Because let's face it being too skinny isn't attractive just like being obese isn't attractive. It's really hard for a lot of people to gain weight just like it's hard to lose weight. Which transitions nicely to my main point (sheesh this is taking longer than I thought)

So I have this metabolism issue that makes it hard to gain weight PLUS I hate to eat. I'm not anorexic either so get that outta your head. Remeber Willy Wonka and that pill they had for the 4 course dinner or whatever. Somebody needs to totally invent that!!

I made an appointment for Dubs to get groomed tomorrow and have a heart worm test done. It's gonna be expensive cause the big lug weighs a ton now, but I'd rather pay someone to do it then to fight him into my too small bath tub.

Now that I look over my post maybe I should have posted it avoidances. I avoid a lot of stuff.

I'm gonna buy some new running shoes (Dubs chewed up one of mine when he was a puppy). I'm gonna force myself to do some running. I have some friends who want to start running and I need some people to keep me accountable.

I got my hair cut yesterday by Kat and it's super awesome!! I love Kat, she's so fun and her cousin Chrissy is super awesome too. Derek went to high school with them and I met them when we were out one night. They aren't mean girls so I'm happy to count them as friends.

Hey look everybody I sound like an 80's 7th grader. Go Me!

Ok I'm going to go eat now. I know Derek will ask me in another hour if I actually ate and I don't want to lie or upset him so...
