Happy Friday, guys and dolls!
Since we have the puppy at home, I've been spending a lot less time in front of the computer since he's a chewer.. and now I'm finally starting to catch up on some of my TV shows while playing Tug'o'War with the pooch!
Last night I watched Losing It from the first week.. I thought I had forgotten to tape it, but there it was.. It was about an overweight family with two of the family members having gastric bypass surgery (the same one I had). The father was unsuccessful and the daughter had lost all of her weight but she still hadn't worked on her head. I related to the daughter for a few reasons - she still has the "fat girl mentality" where she doesn't see herself as thin.. Sometimes I look in the mirror and see BS (before-surgery, and bull sh*t (HA)) Laurie looking back at me. It's sad, frustrating, and hard to shake! Also, I have a really hard time with accepting compliments. I just don't see or understand what other people see, b/c I see BS Laurie. I enjoyed this family because I related so well.. I watched part of the 2nd show but I didn't finish it. I realized that I still have a lot of work to do on myself. I knew this all along, but finally realized how important it is!
I must touch on Glee too... I freaking love this show! :) It's just plain fun.. I watch enough TV that is deep and thought provoking, so this is nice and refreshing for me! It started again from the beginning last night, so my mom and sister and a few friends are going to start watching it too! Wahoo! :)
I'm SOOOOOOOO glad that it's Friday. This weekend, I'm planning on further puppy proofing the house, getting a few things taken care of that I've been putting off, looking for some shorts for summer so I don't die in the heat, and just trying to get some relaxation time in! One of John's uncles is having a 50th birthday surprise party sometime on Saturday, so we'll be going to that as well.
I have a month until our vacation. I cannot wait! We're going to Orlando so I'll be meeting his sister and her family for the first time. We're also going to the new Harry Potter thingy at Universal, Disney World, and all that stuff. I sure hope I saved enough money... H&M also has a store in Orlando, so hopefully I can get a new wardrobe on the cheap while I'm there too!
I hope you all have a great weekend!!! xoxo
