News and What Not

I’ve got lots of tidbits that I’ve been meaning to post, but haven’t had time to do so:


v                    While flying back from Minnesota last week, I fell asleep. I awoke to a two year old staring at my over the chair in front of me. We had a little face-off where we would make faces back and forth. Good stuff. Then he started telling me about his family and his dad’s deer, etc. Pretty verbal for a two year old. He went back to his family for most of the remainder of the flight. After the plane landed, he looked at me again and said, “Pop-pop and gamma are picking me up. Wanna come?” How cute was that?! I told him I was getting picked up by someone too, but thanks for the offer. Yeah, I’m a hit with the two year olds.

v                    I was flown into Minnesota for a service awards program put on by my work. I’ve been with ‘em for 10 years! Aaaack! Time flies. But ya’ll knew that, right?

v                    The week before last, I was diagnosed as being “hypothyroid”. So now I’m the fat chick with a thyroid condition. In the old days, didn’t all fat people say, “I have a thyroid condition. That’s’ why I’m fat?” It kind of struck me as funny and also struck me as, “DUH, I bet I’ve had this for quite a while.” I have lots of reasons to think that after looking at the list of symptoms for low thyroid production online. As far as I can remember, I’ve never been tested for it. I’m hoping that the Synthroid (read ground up piggy thyroid) is a miraculous energy producer. We’ll see. It’s supposed to take several weeks to “build up” in my system.

v                    Happy Cinco de Mayo! We’re doing a little party here tonight with a wide variety of Mexican and Amero-Mexi food offerings. Gotta love it!

v                    Oh, a funny thing at the doctor. The intake nurse asks, “How tall are you?” I said, “I’m 5’5”. “How much do you weigh?” To which I replied, “150, give or take.” Her head whipped around so fast, I thought her eyes were going to pop out. I’m not sure if she *really* thought I thought I weighed 150 or what. Good times all around though. J

Hi Cat, I remember your weekly photos.
Cute about the two year old. :-)

If anyone asks my wife her weight, she quotes Dolly Parton:

"A hundred and plenty."

Josh -- that's awesome! I may have to use that sometime too.

AM -- have at it! Let me know how it goes. :-)

Bronwyn -- I remember them too! :-) They'll be back sooner than later, hopefully.
