First off, I have to mention that I have the most awesome husband in the whole entire universe. Either that or he's really really well-trained. Naw, he's awesome.
Tonight was the usual Weight Watchers meeting, and I gained a whopping 5 lbs in one week. This has got to be amazing in itself. You would have to consume like 4,000 calories a day to gain 5 pounds in a week, and I did not. Trust me, I might have enjoyed 4,000 calories a day. I did not partake in such caloric bliss. I was a pretty good girl. The caverns alone were like a 5-7 mile deal, plus I swam each day we were home, and hiked around. I so deserved to see a loss, or no change, or something less horrific this week. I know its probably water retention. Ah, the joys of being female.
ANYWAY, so I called my Louie to report my crappy news, because that's what I do. We celebrate together, he talks me down when I'm angry, and he pulls me up when I'm sad, and vice versa. You know, the whole marriage/best friend thing. Anyway, so I call him to tell him what a COW his wife is, and you know what he says??
"Don't worry mija, next week will be better. Its probably retaining water or something, no? And besides..."
(...this is why this man rocks my world...)
"I love every inch, every pound. I love you either way."
Ok so I'm missing Aileen terribly. I wish she'd get the heck settled already. We missed each other as she was driving through - I was in Carlsbad 750 feet underground I think. Now I have an excuse to go to Vegas, but I'm still suffering from Aileen withdrawals.
GET SETTLED ALREADY. I MISS YOU!!!
Finally, my extremely sexy Aussie friend Drew sent me this article, about a former Hooters waitress who decided to sue after she felt she was tricked by her boss. Apparently there was an incentive promotion going on where if you sold enough beer, you would get a new Toyota.
...or so she thought.
Instead she was given a "toy Yoda". A $40 replica of the little green guy from Star Wars.
Get it? I do. Not funny. She didn't think so either.
Apparently the restaurant regularly had these sort of incentive deals for their employees, with real actual prizes. So she sued the owners of the restaurant, alleging breach of contract and fraudulent misrepresentation. In the suit, she is asking for the cost of a new ACTUAL Toyota.
I hope she wins.
I'm back at work. Darnit. I lost my joy when the alarm went off at dark thirty Monday morning. I know, I'm working on the attitude as we speak. Vacations are never long enough.
I guess that's it for now.
