It’s sad because it’s true; the two things I’m an “aholic” of (alcohol and shopping) are both at a stand still right now in my life because of my 50 day Sober ‘till October challenge and my self-imposed spending freeze, because I’m poor and in debt.
So now that that sob story is out of the way let’s get down to business. Let's link up with Kathy because it's the cool thing to do.
: I stole something. The other day at Walmart I went through the self-check-out line. Everything was going swimmingly until I tried to scan the two nail polish bottles that I had picked out, both as gifts. I rubbed both those bad boys over the scanner a MILLION times. I wiggled and rubbed and tried everything I could to get it to scan. Finally, BEEEP, one went through. Repeat all of the above with the second bottle. I tried typing in the item number, I tried the top and bottom scanners, I did everything I could for 5+ minutes (on one bottle!!!) without it scanning. I was going to push the help button but the one staff lady at the self-check-out had been helping another customer and it looked like it would be a while. I was on my lunch break and out of time. I did the only thing left to do…dropped it in my bag and went on my way. I stole a $1.99 bottle of nail polish. I ain’t proud of it, but it happened. IT’S ITS OWN FAULT DAMNIT.
: All I want is bread. Noodles and cookies and BREAD. I have been doing pretty well with my healthy eating lately but the only result I have noticed so far is my undeniable craving for carbs. I WANT PIZZA. I want breadsticks and donuts and rolls. Gimme it all.
: I almost called in to work for a neck ache. I seriously contemplated it Monday as my neck seemed to be broken. Ok, not really. I strained something in the left side of my neck and it hurts something awful. It’s fine just sitting up or standing, but if I turn my head or try to sit up once laying down or bent over, YOWZA it’s a stabbing pain. Good news is I got some straws and sucked it up. I made it to work and although the strain is still lingering, the neck seems to be doing better as of today.
: I get really bad ingrown hairs in the “areas” us ladies shave. They are big and painful and the worst part is that they LEAVE A SCAR. I get a dark purple/gray reminder of where the little bastard was and it’s not attractive. They look like dark dotted stretch marks or like cigarette burn leftovers down…well you can guess where… Sorry, TMI? Anyways I finally bought some cleanser to hopefully alleviate the situation.
: I’ve taken a turn to the dark side. I’ve always been anti-coffee. I loved the idea of it, and the smell of it, but it has always made me gag and sick to my stomach. I haven’t really tried to force it down since high school and what do you know, my adult pallet must have kicked in. Because I kinda like it. Not like-LOVE it yet, but I might get there. I’d still pick a chai over coffee any day, but the fact that I have ordered a couple white chocolate mochas in the last month shocks the hell out of me.
:Speaking of coffee house drinks, I tried to order my first Pumpkin Spice chai of the year last week. I got it and it was hot and wonderful—but something was off. It tasted minty – is that supposed to happen? Then I realized there was just a “P” in the syrup spot and some jack ass gave me a PEPPERMINT chai instead of pumpkin spice. Seriously, how rude! So pumpkin spice anything has yet to be enjoyed by yours truly.
: Even though I am extremely excited for fall I don’t have one ounce of motivation to “organize, clean or decorate” like everyone else does. Sure I’ll pull out some pumpkins and fake leaves at some point but really I’m still recovering from the summer. Can you give me a minute to transition please? Everyone else being so productive and amped about the new season is giving me anxiety.
…AAAAAAANNNDDD that’s all I have for you this week. Happy Hump Day folks!
