Awkward & Awesome

1.12.2012

AWKWARD
- Since Molly likes to chew the area rug under our couch (and occasionally revenge poop under there), The Boyfriend built a small frame to go around the interior of the couch and keep Molly out.  Now every time I let her out of her cage for play time, she just runs around the perimeter of the couch over and over again looking for a way in.  You'd think after two weeks of this she'd have learned that she's not getting in.  I mean, she's usually a smart piggie.  She even learned a trick.  But no.  She's convinced herself she'll get in one day.  Gotta admire her determination.

- We had some beers from Trader Joe's that neither of us really liked so we set them outside the front door yesterday with a note that said, "Unopened beers.  Please take."  I thought they'd probably be gone by the end of the day but those suckers were outta here by 11am!!  Someone really needed some booze to get through Hump Day.

AWESOME
- I painted my nails yesterday.  I attempted a gradated glitter look but it didn't quite turn out the way I expected.  Either way, you can't really go wrong with pink sparkles, right?

- Even though I'm still only on Level 1 of Metamorphosis, I've already lost three pounds since the holidays.  I think a lot of it has to do with my diet recently.  I've still been eating lots of sweets (I don't just have a sweet tooth, I have a mouth full of sweet teeth) but I've also been cooking fresh dinners every night and eating the leftovers for lunch the day after.  No more Lean Cuisines, Smart Ones, Amy's bean & cheese burritos (so good!).  Just healthy, natural, unprocessed meals.  Pretty sure this is the reason for the weight loss and not the less-than-10-days of working out.  But I did cheat once yesterday.  I had a Coke.  And I don't regret it one bit.

As you can see, things have been pretty low-key around here.

  1. Haha, I *love* coming here and always being able to read about Mollie's shenanigans! :)

    Congrats on the 3 lb. weight loss! Cutting back on sweets is HARD. I totally indulged over the holidays and enjoyed some sugar (it was awesome).

    I know I'm almost two weeks late, but happy new year!
