Saying Little with Many Words

So I haven't posted in several days. I was busy making merry & sitting on my bum – and frankly, forgot I had a blog. Heh. But now Dr. M and I are home so I'm going to try to get back into a routine. One that involves a lot less of Amy's German Chocolate Upside Down Cake, and a little more exercise. Although I was astounded to get on the scale this morning & discover that I only weigh one more pound than the last time I checked two weeks ago. Astounded I say! I'm pretty sure my scale is insane – but it makes me happy anyway.

After spending a week at my dad's house we are realizing just how small our place is. This is a blessing and a curse. I like that I don't have to walk very far from the washing machine to the closet. But there's nowhere for Dr. M to hide from me. Bwahahaha! I sat at my computer muttering to myself all morning (catching up on Quicken & bill paying does that to me) & he just had to sit there & take it. Wait - could this be the reason he's the Watering Man in the summer?

I have turned into one of Those People. After all of my high finance, I needed to go to the bank and the post office. I bathed this morning, but to leave the house I just brushed my hair & headed out in my sweat pants. No makeup. No structured pants (really, it's not polite of me to go running around in sweat pants). I didn't go to Walmart, but I'm sure I would have had my picture taken for that website if I had. You know the one – where unsuspecting fashion morons are highlighted for all the world to see. I am a fashion moron. And you know? It's not really that I don't know what I look like. I just don't care. Wow – maybe I should make more of an effort just for Dr. M. Poor guy!

Perhaps that will be my New Year's Resolution – do not leave the house without makeup & jeans (at least until I've lost enough weight that the view of my backside in sweatpants isn't cringe inducing).

Well, I'm off to compose a Poetry Bus gem. I'm sure it will be fabulous. I think I'm going to write a song!


  1. The holidays found me lamenting my recent loss in square footage. Now that the joint has emptied out again, I appreciate that our house is 'just right' for the two of us (and Leo). In a little less than 3 hours, I am able to clean the entire house. It took me two days at my last home.

    Good job with the weight. I will join you on the crusade, just as soon as I finish eating all those Cherry Winks I baked the other night.

  2. Glad you're back with us. I NEVER wear makeup, the world gets what it gets and I could be on that website too. A song? Will you record it for us? Oh, go on, go on, go on!

  3. I have few fashion rules but one of them is no sweats or lounge clothes in public. I knew this guy once that always wore sweatpants. Everywhere. He was showing up art openings in sweatpants. We were making jokes about it. Seriously unattractive. Gotta have real pants on to leave the house. I break the rule but I try to keep it to a minimum...very short forays or not getting out of the car or sick and don't give a damn or how clean they are and snicker how many days I've been wearing them. the make-up thing is no big deal to me though since I don't wear it anyway.

  4. That website is a hoot. I go to the grocery store very early and I know I've been worthy of appearing on that site a few times... bed hair and all.

    We're so in the market for a smaller house. If I thought my house would sell quickly, I'd put it on the market today, but the market is so slow here.

    Happy New Year, Bug!

  5. I won't take out the trash without makeup!

  6. Dear The Bug,
    It's one of my goals too--never out of the house without lipstick! But, some days are just better than others.

    Happy New Year,
    Ann T.

  7. Re Karen's comment - I just won't take out the trash full stop.
    Haven't showered since Sunday because of water difficulties around here, bet I could be on that website for sure.

  8. I am afraid to step on the scales after our six week eat-anything-we-wanted extravaganza. (And I'm chowing down on a no bake cookie as I type this so my ways have not mended upon our return home.) I'm not even sure my sweats would even fit me any more!

    But ahhhhh, it's been worth it :)

  9. Bug, I never wear makeup either.

    This was a really funny recount of your day. I laughed out loud at the thought of being caught on camera i n the Walmart.

    Happy New Year!
