New Week, New Outlook - Still Deaf

The wedding was actually pretty fun.  Ironic little story here.  I ended up at the same table with someone who graduated the same year I did from the same high school.  I didn't catch her name and I have absolutely no idea who she is.  To be fair, she has no idea who I am either.  We definitely ran with different crowds.  I could've graduated a year early but chose not to so most of my friends graduated a year before me and I kind of phoned in my senior year by only going half days and working 2 jobs.  This woman was on senior class council and hung out with cheerleaders.  I really wanted to hate her but truth was she was pretty funny and even hugged me as we were leaving.  I had my niece snap a quick pic of Hubby and I before we left.

And, of course, then my girls wanted to be in one.  They didn't come to the wedding...

Also, I had to share my total mind*uck trick that occurred last week.  So I was looking for a new outfit for my birthday.  I was trying on all kinds of tops and bottoms and just couldn't find anything I really cared for.  I finally did but before that I tried on a pair of pants with this hanger.

I couldn't get them above my knees.  I was like "WTF?!!?!"  Surprisingly though, I was like...well, every size 12 is different depending on style and designer so I'm not going to let this get to me.  But I double checked the inside tag and found this...No wonder I couldn't get them above my knees!

The NSV here is obviously not that Size 4's still don't fit me.  It's the fact that I didn't immediately break down in tears at the thought the size 12 didn't fit.  The old me would immediately start the negative self talk but not this time.  So there ya go.

Weekend here was hot and didn't do much of anything.  Just wasn't motivated.  My girls were still awake when we got home from the wedding so they were pretty tired and grumpy Sunday so we mostly hung out at home, which was fine by me as I was pretty wiped and still can't hear anything out of my left ear.  Update on that:  Went to the doc on Friday afternoon and was told the infection is gone but fluid is still there.  That could take up to a couple weeks to drain.  Wonderful.

And now we're current.  Came in today to find a couple new followers.  Welcome!  I've got a week and a half to vacation and am seriously counting down.  And since outside of being deaf, I'm feeling so much better, I'm hitting the gym after work today.  Jenn, expect a text from me!  So most of you probably won't appreciate the DEMotivator for this week.  I was looking for something related to marriage or weddings or something like that and the geek in me just couldn't resist this one.

Love the pics! You look great. And I bet I couldn't get my foot in a 4!

LOL, I love the demotivator.

Goodness, if I were you in that dressing room I know I would have freaked out... I am a drama queen about my sizes, though. If I even suspect it won't come up past my huge thighs, I stop trying at the knee. Ugh.

Glad you guys had a good time at the wedding, and of course you looked great. I love that you couldn't hate the gal, I think it's really great when people exceed our expectations. :)
