Five Reasons Why Today Didn't Suck...

1. Every pair of pants I own are too big. I can zip them up, button them, whatever... and still pull them down over my hips while they're fastened. I spent most of the day hiking up my drawrs. *

This means two things: a) I am actually seeing major results from the recent weight loss, and b) I am going shopping tonight for new pants. W00T!

Some guy at work even called me a "little cutie" today and noticed the weight loss. Usually, I would be totally creeped out by that, but it didn't bother me. Nope, not today!

2. A slower schedule at work and no obligations after work makes Grumpy less... ummm, grumpy.

3. The temperature is currently a balmy 42 degrees F.
At 6:00pm.
In that midwest place where I live which is usually colder than a [fill in your choice of cold analogies here].
Tomorrow, it will reach the 50s.
I may wear shorts to work. (okay, not really)

4. I finally washed the Loser Cruiser after several weeks... in fact, I've actually lost track of the last time it was washed. It is now a shiny Loser Cruiser.

5. Did I mention I'm going shopping? Retail therapy always aids in elevating a day to non-suckage.**

So, there you have it. Please pray that my credit score doesn't take a hit after tonight.

*Yes, I know that "drawrs" are technically underwear. But when your pants/trousers are hanging on you so much that your butt disappears entirely from view... you can call them "drawrs." Really, you can. I have permission from a very high authority.

**Technically, there are 6 things that made this day not suck. But I'm a lady, and I don't share those things in my blog. :-)

It's gonna be 58 here this week! I will wear a bikini.

Congrats on the pants! I hope you found some cute, new, and (most importantly) smaller pants.

And I washed my car yesterday, and it made me strangely happy!

metalia said...

I love love love your second footnote.

goldennib said...

I am so glad you had a good. How many new drawrs did you buy.

maliavale: I like cold weather, but it's nice to have a "warm-up" every once in a while. Go bikinis!

-r-: Yes! I found six pairs of pants, two sizes smaller. That was definitely an ego boost. Yee haw.

And I know what you mean about the clean car thing. It makes me happy, too.

metalia: heh heh ;-)

goldennib: SIX. There was a good sale... buy one, get the 2nd at $15. That was nice for the old bank account!

Our temps were in the 40s yesterday, too. They should be that way again today!

Sparkling Cipher said...

Congratulations! Loose pants AND warm temps. You lucky girl.

Around here, we've been above freezing for several days now. I'm loving it. Yay. Bring on springtime.

lizgwiz said...

Yay for giant pants!

And warmer weather. We've actually been in the high 60s/low 70s here, and I'm soooo happy!

Paisley said...

Yay on the pants! I just had to buy new pants! They are smaller than my post birth pants and yet still bigger than my pre-baby pants,but that's some sort of progress! It makes things so much happier.

Several weeks with no wash? That's nothing! I just washed my car two weeks ago after not washing it since the first weekend in August when I got it washed for my baby shower because who wants to load shiny gifts into a dirty car?

Stinkypaw said...

Congrats on the "visible" weight loss! Have fun shopping!

don't call me MA'AM said...

3carn: hooray for previews of spring!

sparkling: thank you! I'm just hoping springtime doesn't bring a spring blizzard like last year.

lizgwiz: hooray indeed. And wow! That IS warm!!

paisley: very good progress! Plus, you have O to show for it as well, and that makes it all worthwhile. :-)

stinkypaw: we had a very good time shopping. Well, I say "we." The daughter I dragged through the stores didn't have fun while I was shopping, but she did once we bought some things for her. ;-)
