I just sent my long post that I'd been typing all of this time when I saw your post! Twice now we've crossed posts like that! You SERIOUSLY made me laugh, though! You are so funny! And I never even thought you had called me stupid even after you said, "I just called you stupid!" LOL
I'll go point by point from your post. I've NEVER thought of myself as a positive person before, believe me! Especially after all of that whole bullying situation and the aftermath and being alone so much, I've mostly just lived in a pity party state of being. I have been trying hard to be more positive since going to church and in the last month in particular. Thankfully is must be starting to come more naturally because I had no idea I'd sounded positive until you mentioned it! =)
I think YOU are so selfless because of all that you do for your family AND for yourself. And because you don't say anything about your health issues during youth group although I think you should give yourself a break in that department because your health issues are worse than mine. I briefly saw Pastor Cathy tonight. When people were filing into the area for dinner she came up to me and said, "You made it." I noticed she'd seen me enter the sanctuary when I did, so maybe Brianna had said something to both her AND Gail (because Gail said Brianna was worried, or did I tell you that?). I smiled and told her I'd been to the dentist again and she just gave me a little smile in return. Oh, and I'd very briefly seen Brianna Wed before Bible study in the afternoon and I'd told her I'd be there Thursday night, so that's why she was nervous. Plus, I'm always early. =)
Yes, I fell TOO in love with Nutella! I went to the store with my mom yesterday and told her that Nutella was all the rage on the MB and I wanted to try it. She wasn't sure when she saw the sugar content, but relented. My sugar was high this morning even though I'd given myself extra insulin because I'd eaten so much Nutella. My mom looked at the jar and couldn't believe how EMPTY it was! She said I'm only allowed a measuring spoon teaspoon of Nutella a day now! LOL It tastes aweosome! That's funny about how it's all over Paris like that. I'm going to have to tell Emilie. I found out today that her ban ends late Saturday night. At 10:23 exactly. She is ready to start typing at 10:24! She and Hazel and I are able to chat off the MB, but I can only talk to one at a time. Hazel doesn't write much and sometimes Emilie doesn't either. It's still a protected site and our messages are viewed before they are sent to the person, but it's PRIVATE! Nobody else sees what we're reading!
My brother was a fitness nut before he opened his CrossFit gym - the only one in the family! He would run miles and bike miles and miles! He met his wife because she was into both running and biking. His wife still runs, but my brother doesn't and neither one rides a bike anymore. That's good you can ride a bike cuz of your lungs. I hope to get a bike. Mine was stolen because someone cut the chain. I hadn't been riding it much because of the weather, but I want a bike so I can ride when I can't walk. Mom says we have to wait and find one at a yard sale since they should be starting up soon.
I'm glad you aren't pushing yourself too hard with the exercises. It's normal to feel sore for a while when you start something new, but if it keeps that way or gets worse, you'll need to back off a bit and then go back up to where you are now before you do even more. Just saying even though you probably already know because you DO push yourself a lot!
That is awesome that you like to cook that much that it calms you and you can be creative and have things turn out. I wish I could cook. I can't even make real rice and it took me a while to learn now to boil eggs so they would be fully cooked. XD I don't really have a passion because I don't know what I like or can do well enough. Volunteering maybe, but that just takes being responsible and wanting to help. So, there's no real talent there!
Oh, food-wise! I NEVER mind people talking about food or eating stuff in front of me that I can't have. When I was younger my mom wouldn't let my brother have any food that I couldn't eat and it made him mad, of course. When I got older I realized what was happening and that he shouldn't suffer because of me. I think that is probably the only time in his life that he ever said, "Thank you," to me! So I can eat out with people and I don't care what they get. Or when Crystal is pregnant, sometimes she has to eat during appointments because she has so little time in between. Or when she's nursing she has to eat regularly. I always tell her that I don't mind her eating and she can eat whatever she wants, but she always asks. I guess that's why she's the professional!
Patty had already said this morning that she wanted to go to Giant tomorrow and get a salad because some of our Giant grocery stores have a cafe in them where you can eat what you buy if you want. Normally I would love that, but not with my mouth how it is. I'd rather have something softer. It won't have to be mushy, but it'll have to be like a sandwich or cheesesteak or something. I could only eat mush tonight because I still have to be WAY careful about what I eat on my right side and with the left being so numb and you're not supposed to eat right after you get a filling, but I had to because it would have been too long in between meals. Tonight I just wasn't too hungry. I have missing next to last teeth on both sides on the bottom and a next to last tooth missing on the top right. Because we can't afford a bridge or whatever they would use to replace the missing tooth, a lot of times I bite my mouth where the tooth is missing, especially on the bottom left. I bet the bottom right is going to be just the same way now! And when I take my meds, I always lose a pill in one of those hollow spaces and I never even realize it until I get the bitter taste of the pill. Then it takes at least two swallows to get it down because it tries to hide in one of the hollow spaces every time! Do you floss a lot? Do you use "soft picks" after you floss? I had never heard of soft picks. I do try to floss as often as I can, but the dentist said that I just have bad teeth genes and using soft picks make a huge difference. It gets food out from between your teeth that is left behind even after you floss! I never knew anything else could be left behind after flossing until I used the soft picks! After she pulled the bottom right tooth over two weeks ago, I could see the last tooth and see that it was showing decay, but I couldn't see the other tooth. I knew one of those two teeth is my last tooth that is slated to be filled, but without seeing the other tooth, I didn't know which. So I asked the doc. She said the tooth I can't see is to be filled, but there is obvious noticeable decay on the other. She said it's because I didn't floss regularly when I should have. I don't know how young one should be to start to floss, but I guess it's never too early to get into the habit. She said it was made worse since I hadn't used soft picks after I did start to use floss. So, either I wasted your time because you already knew this, or hopefully I told you something you hadn't known!
NEITHER ONE OF US IS STUPID!!!!! =)
Lovebugs, mirages, lakes, gated communities, umm...rain in general, Sedanos, hurricanes, Publix, flip-flops. Oh, and a fear of birds.
Okay, since you mentioned Lovebugs with sarcasm, I'm assuming that they aren't Volkswagen Beetles or ladybugs. They aren't what you call stink bugs are they? I HATE those things! Mirages. I know what they are. Do you guys see mirages in Florida? Lakes. Yes, I've heard of lakes before. XD Gated communities. Yes I've heard of them and I know what they are, but I've never seen one before. Rain. It's been known to happen from time to time where I live, yes. XD Sedanos - before I google it, it's a type of car, right? Ugh! I got that one wrong! I DID know that Publix was a grocery store even though I've never even been in one. Probably some news thing happening at one or something. Flip flops. Yes, I know of these weirdly sandal type of things that adorns the bottom of one's foot. I'm not fond of them because I don't like the thing between my toes. What I DON'T get is the craziness of wearing flip flop jewelry and junk like that. Keep the flip flops with your feet where they belong! Lastly, birds. I do not have a fear of birds. My Grandma has had birds on and off. She was cleaning the cage of one of her birds and accidentally sucked up her bird Sweetzie into her vacuum cleaner. She just about freaked out after she realized what she'd done. That poor baby! If you don't like birds, never watch Alfred Hitchcock's movie, "Birds". My nieces just adopted two birds. Cockatiels named Buddy and Bella. For their birthdays since one is in April and the other in May. They have since changed their names to Blue and Jewel.
OKAY then! I guess I WON'T be reading tonight! LOLOLOLOL
