I can't believe it's been a week since the last Random Wednesday, but here we are.
I forgot to mention something in my last post. As we were walking around Carowinds I was looking at all of the games. I didn't see anyone manning these booths, but I saw quite a few "Guess Your Weight" booths. Ugh, I shuddered in horror. What's worse: Guessing it right or Guessing it wrong?
I looked and looked, but I couldn't find a Guess Your Age booth....man I would clean up on that! No one EVER guesses my age.
The other night I was listening to an interview with Gabourey Sidibe on NPR as I was driving home. She is promoting her book: "This is just my Face: Try not to stare". I was drawn in completely and quickly put her book on my Amazon wishlist.
She is currently starring in Empire. She discussed how much backlash she got for a make-out scene. It's horrifying to think that people have such an issue with a big girl in a consensual love scene, but not with a girl being raped by her father.
Check out her book. I can't wait to read it.
Yesterday was my birthday and I was spoiled. My fellow preschool teachers put together a breakfast spread: bagels, egg casserole, greek yogurt with granola, fresh fruit, juice, potatoes (although sadly I didn't see them and they were all gone when I got word), and the most amazing Lemon Blueberry cake that would make you weep. It didn't end there. I was running late and didn't get to go to Starbucks for my free birthday drink, but it was ok....one magically appeared for me. I love them. They went with a Venti and I quote "We know you like to make everything skinny and non-fat, but we went the opposite. It's your birthday!" Not arguing there.
The big problem I had yesterday was that I most definitely did not have enough water. I was dehydrated this morning. It was awful. So that was my goal today. I was allowed no coffee until I drank 2 bottles of water.
I was sent home with the leftover cake. I put half in the freezer and half in the fridge. And I have practically chained myself to my bed so that I won't go eat it all...and oh how I want to
I gave myself a step challenge for May. I wanted to hit my 10K goal every day. I was doing really well, but I did not get it on Monday and Tuesday. I'm back today though. Yay.
So I mentioned that I moved. I no longer live a mile from Tony Stewart's garage. I know he retired, but I still have hopes.
Hey Tony Stewart, Call Me!
Have a Blessed Evening
