Attitude is everything, technically speaking.

Just a quick note to say I've not fallen off the side of the earth, nor have I forsaken the world of blogging. Let's just say I'm having technical difficulties. My sinuses are "technically" in a world of hurt - I feel like my head is the size of the Goodyear blimp, my computer skills are "technically" deficient, in the worst possible way (I say this because I still have not mastered the fine art of downloading my photographs into the right folders, etc. and it's annoying me to no end) and my house has become so desperately in need of cleaning that I'm "technically" relearning what it means to dust, vacuum, mop and scrub (life skills I thought I was doing quite well without, thankyouverymuch!). Oh, and "technically", my scales have told me that, yet again, I've managed to do great Thursday through Sunday, but starting on each and every Monday, I begin to grow lead weights somewhere inside my body and that growth manifests itself in those rotten digital numbers on that evil Conair Weight Watchers scale that lives in my closet. Not that I'm going off the deep end over the matter of a pound or two. No sir. Not me. I'm much more stable than that. I don't mind jumping on that particular emotional roller coaster. It's fun to know that eating healthier and paying attention to culinary details is paying off in such a meaningful way. In fact, I've enjoyed this feeling so much over the past month that I think I'll buy a season pass for that ride so I can do this over and over and over again. Oh, and did I mention the fact that, once I do get my photos downloaded properly (and I'm sure that will happen - even if I have to get one of the boys to do it for me), I will be able to show you a picture of a shirt that I own that I will never, ever, ever, as long as I live, wear again? Yeah, I loved that shirt. Until I saw a picture of myself in it, of course. I swear, it ought to be a law; Every new item of clothing that a woman contemplates buying should first be photographed on the body of that woman so she might be able to better judge the quality of the "cute effect" she thinks it gives her. Because damn. Nothing like wearing a shirt that shows a set of arms more suited to a Green Bay linebacker than a 45 year old woman. Urrrggghhhh! Anywho, I'll share all that and more in short order. Maybe today. Maybe not. Depending on this thoroughly crummy attitude I'm working on. Speaking of which...the Philadelphia Eagles lost to the flippin' Dallas Cowboys last night. BUM. MER. Donovan McNabb is twice the quarterback that Tony Romo is, but alas...even his fine leadership didn't bring the Eagles to victory. It was a fun game to watch, but it sure would have been funner had Philly won. But that's neither here nor there. I only bring it up as one more example of the negative vibes I'm giving off this morning. I'll work on being nicer...or at least, at seeming to be nicer, and will post something decent soon. :0


  1. Hi Kari!

    Your blend of humor, sarcasm, attitude, and wit are just what I needed this morning. You've got me grinning again.

    Now, if I did follow your philosophy about taking a picture of each "outfit" before actually wearing it, I wouldn't wear anything. That definitely wouldn't be good.

  2. Ha! I take it you're having a sort of rough day huh? Just go kick a tree, that helps get me out of a mood.

  3. It'll all come back to you when you least expect it and really wish it wouldn't! At least that's been my experience...hope that cold is close to being over and that IKE stayed away from your door completely!

  4. It's been that kind of day here too. I even checked the calendar to see if it's full moon. Nope. :)

  5. A couple of things...

    If you're taking OTC drugs for the cold/sinus stuff, that may be contributing to any weight gain. Not sure how because I know for a fact that a Sudafed Sinus cap doesn't weight much at all!

    So you're not a Dallas fan??? I'm shocked! LOL.

    I know what you mean about the tight shirt dilemma. Been there, done that.

    Feel better soon, Kari!


Thank you for your comment. I love to hear what you have to say!
