Ten Things Thursday

Ten things Thursday, brought to us by that totally hawt girl at beerdogsandhealth

1. My snow dance was a big fat fail earlier this week. Although I saw some snow flakes in the air, it just wasn't enough to get me a day off. Damn weather man. Just like a man to exaggerate on inches.

2. The Boy has a birthday tomorrow. He will be 18. I'M FREE, I'M FREE!!! Ok, I know I'm really not, but it felt good to think it for a second. He asked me what I was getting him for his birthday....I told him some luggage. He told me he wasn't planning on taking any trips. When I explained it was for packing up to move out he said "Mom...you know I am going to live her forever." When I asked him what about when he gets married his reply was "well, we have a guest room, she will be fine"

3. I finally got brave enough to get on the scale. I lost 2 pounds. I will take it.

4. Is it weird that I will only weigh myself on days that I pooped?

5. I used to host foreign exchange students. We have remained very, very close with our German son. Every once in a while he sends me my favorite chocolate from Germany. I haven't told him about getting banded. I know he will send me some for Christmas. I hope I have enough restraint not to eat it all at once. Maybe I shall share most of it this year.

6. I get my first fill next week. I am super duper nervous about that big ole needle.

7. My mother met a lady yesterday that had been banded 4 years ago and she lost over 200 pounds. After talking to this lady my mother felt the need to give me a lecture on how this band is only a tool and I have to work with the band...yes mama, I already know that.

8. I have my last class for the semester tonight. I am sooooo over going to school. I know my mama really wants to see me get a Doctorate....but I am over it.

9. Only two more weeks until Christmas break!!!

10. Hi. My name is Bigass Barbie and I'm a Dew aholic. I have been clean and sober for 26 days.... I want a Mountain Dew dammit!

Seriously - 26 days? That is rockstar. I only wish I could give up Dew.

No Dew GREAT hope I can give up the Pepsi when it's time

You can stay off the Dew...just say no! I promise the fill didn't hurt, not a bit. I'm sure yours will go smoothly!

I am a recovering diet coke addict... I have gone two months without one... and I have only had ONE CAN in FOUR MONTHS. It can be done. Plus I find that diet coke or anything bubbly makes me blow up like a balloon and want to die.

Hey BABs, (can I call you that, better than Big Ass Barbie!) love this post! Your banter with your son is adorable, happy bday to him! Your mother is hilarious...mine would do the EXACT same thing. Try not to worry about the fill...it can't be that bad, can it? (What do I know...still counting down until band surgery here...) Proud of you for staying away from Dew. Just tell yourself the truth which is IT IS POISON. Getting the band is about doing right by yourself and your body, right? So think of it as keeping garbage out of your temple :-)

Love your ten :o) And don't worry about the fill, it is over before you know it, and then if your lucky, you get a taste of restriction :o)
