I'm sad that my time in the library is coming to an end. It's such a wonderful, relaxing job.
Today is my mom's 40-something birthday. I really honestly have no idea how old she is. I think she's 46... But she doesn't act her age and she certainly doesn't look mid-40s. I only hope that I have her snarky-ness and good looks when I'm 46 too.
I'm limping today. Something I did last night is making my calves scream in pain. I don't know what it is or what I did, but dammit it hurts.
I try not to let the scale define who I am, but sometimes it does. I've been overweight my entire life. At the age of 8 I had a doctor (and my grandmother) tell me I was too fat and that I needed to be put on a diet. My grandmother, dear blogsphere. At 16 the same woman told me that I was a pretty girl, but I would be beautiful if I just lost some weight. Please don't get me wrong, I love my grandmother... I really do.. But sometimes the ones closest to you can cause the most damage. I was also called tubby at home. Not by Mom, but by my dad and brother. It's a big, screwed up mess. Luckily my relationships with everyone are in a much better place.

|I'm noticing changes! Huzzah!|
Did I also mention that today is the Friday before SB2013??
Woohoo! This just means I will have to dig my laptop out at home to keep my blogosphere updated :)
Until next time blogosphere! Stay sane :)
