Yes, just to quickly answer becuz I know some of you were wondering, I was indeed with my husband at the time and my friend did save the message to play for me at a later date. She's an awesome friend like that. I am kinda mortified to listen to it. Maybe I'll have a couple glasses of wine first to prepare.
But hey, I gotta look at the bright side, maybe there is a job in my future for phone sex operator? Who knows?
Anyway, 'nuff on that. I have good news to report! Big D has been doing tremendously well with his health since his last doctor visit! He's gotten his glucose level down to (ranging) between 140-150. WOO HOO!! I'm super psyched about that. He is feeling better, has more energy, and is not cranky anymore! It's amazing to realize that cranky "funk" I thought he was going through was directly related to his health! I can't wait to hear what his doctor says at his next visit on October 1st!
On the weight loss front, Big D has lost....drum roll please...thirteen pounds!! I am so incredibly proud of his progress! This is just from changing our eating habits and eating healthier!!! We both decided to start walking after dinner, as well, now that the weather is cooler. So tonight will be our first night of that. And you may all be waiting with baited breath to hear how much weight I have lost, correct? So just to recap, Big D has lost THIRTEEN POUNDS...and I? I have lost a grand total of....
.....wait for it....
.....you know you're dying to find out....
....wanna make a guess?
I've lost two freakin' pounds. That's it. I swear. WTF?!?!?!? 13:2!!! What kind of f'ing ratio is that? Men suck! It's way too easy for them to shed the pounds! Every time I hop on the scale, I pray for a miracle and instead, Mother Nature smacks me in the face (or maybe in the fat ass). Meanwhile, my hubby's belly is shrinking and DAMN if he doesn't look good. I have been trying not to jump his bones every time he comes home from work at night!
Down, April, down.
Is it getting warm in here?
Okay, I'm better now.
Anyway, in other news, I've decided (after much deliberation...months and months worth!) that I'm going to get a tattoo!!! Those who know me in real life are probably like, "Are you freakin' kidding me?" It's not something I ever wanted to do. I always flat-out said "No way, tattoos are not for me." I never dated anyone with a tattoo, until Big D came along. (And of course I found his totally sexy.) Mmmm....tattoos.
Uh, but I digress, my point is that I came to the conclusion that I wanted to do something, something small, to memorialize my father. Something that people looking at would be like, "Hmmm, that's cool, what's it mean?" I was stumped. I didn't want to do anything cliche-ish in the world of tattoos.
My friend Lorelei had an idea, an idea that I instantly fell in love with as just the thought of it screamed out to me of my Daddy. For those of you who need the back-story behind my tattoo decision, read this.
Lorelei suggested a penny, with wings to signify that he is in Heaven or an angel, and in the details of the penny, in the print, to put a message. Whether it be just my dad's name, or his name and birthday, or a tiny message from me to him. This tattoo will not be big. I want it a somewhat smaller reasonable size. Since I do office work, I need it in a place that be somewhat covered up, when need be. But also a place that I can display when I feel the urge. This is where you all come in...I need some guidance!
Where do you suggest I put my tattoo? I need opinions people! Where should I put it, and why? I have no idea when I'll be getting it done, yet, cuz my neighbor is a fledgling tattoo artist who is going to be doing it (don't' worry, I've seen his work...he is AMAZING) and I'm on the waiting list (like 12 people ahead of me, Big D included!!) BUT how about this, to make it more fun! Let's turn it into a contest: If I end up USING your suggestion, you will win a prize!
