I’m just going to babble about random stuff today…
We did not win the Powerball last night. Boo. Hubs and I bought a ticket and then we had a pool here at work for tickets as well. I was really hoping that all of those tickets would produce some kind of winnings, but alas no. I think on all of the tickets we had, we had about 3 numbers (and not on the same ticket). Oh well. I actually hate the lottery, it’s a colossal waste of money, however, whenever the jackpot gets above $100 mil we will play. Anyway…
Last night I had a dream that I ran a 5K and WON. But my winning time was 31 minutes (way faster than I ever run a 5K), so I must have been in a race with a bunch of really slow people. I’m not knocking slow runners at all. My last 5K I ran in 40 minutes, so I am super slow, but the 31 minute thing had me all excited in my dream. Maybe this is foreshadowing for my triumphant return to running after the baby. Maybe I will be blessed with a little more speed. Or maybe not. I’ve had a lot of running dreams though since I’ve been pregnant and sidelined, so I think it means I miss it a lot.
This morning I had to be at work at 8am. I hate 8am meetings, because most mornings I don’t get to work until 9:00(ish). And the meeting this morning lasted only 13 minutes and was about a project that we’re not even doing until May, after I get back from maternity leave. Umm, I have about 6,000 things that are due before I go on maternity leave in 3 weeks (OMG, 3 weeks!!!), so talking about something that’s happening is May is just not a smart use of my time right now. Especially at 8:00am. Just sayin’.
Was anyone else really glad that Melissa Rycroft won Dancing With the Stars? I didn’t watch it, and I rarely watch DWTS, but I do love Melissa. She was on two of my fave reality shows – The Bachelor and Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders: Making the Team. Yes, I have watched all 7 seasons of the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader show and I am not afraid to admit it. I just find it fascinating that those girls can do that crazy jump slip thing so easily. Anyway, Melissa was on that show in one of the earlier season (maybe season 1 or 2) and then she popped up on The Bachelor and I was like “she looks familiar.” She’s on another reality show now about her married life, but I don’t watch it because I never know when it’s on. But I really like her and I was glad that she won. Especially because Shawn Johnson and Kelly Monaco already won once. OK, I am talking way too much about a show I didn’t even watch…
|She just had a baby like a year ago. I can only aspire to abs like that post-baby.|
Last night Hubs and I watched the tail end of A Charlie Brown Christmas (we DVR’ed it so we can watch it later). Can someone tell me why the networks are showing all of the awesome Christmas specials now, in November? Why don’t they wait until mid-December when all of the shows go off the air and it’s closer to Christmas? Duh.
I’m getting my hair “did” tonight. I’m in desperate need of color. My friend asked me at my baby shower “did you darken your hair?” Um no, I just have roots. She said it looked nice, but that told me that I needed to get an appointment for highlights stat. I was going to try and wait it out until mid-December, since that’s closer to baby time and I know I won’t be getting my hair done anytime soon after the baby is here, but I just can’t wait any longer. I’m not going to take before and after pics because the last time I did that it didn’t look any different – in pictures. In real life it looked fabulously glossy with no roots.
Speaking of fabulously glossy hair, did anyone notice that Princess Kate got bangs? I don’t like them. And I’m a pro-bangs person. What do you think?
|She doesn't look happy about them either.|
OK, this post is now out of control so I am going to go get some work done. Have a wonderful Thursday!!!
