Frickin' awesome day!!!

And all before 1pm! I've had a fantastic day. I am in a great mood, the sun is shining, the birds are chirping, the drunks have settled on the bench out front. How could things get any better???
Today, I went to the bank to meet with my loan advisor (they call her a financial counsellor, but that sounds as though my money needs a shrink) and we fixed all the problems I was having making ends meet. I now have changed my schedule for payment on my mortgage (why I thought I could pay weekly when I get paid once a month is beyond my comprehension.) I have paid off my Mastercard and don't have to worry about this month anymore.

Then, I went and got an oil change (no cute Mr. Lube boys this time though) and went shopping. I needed a pair of jeans b/c I lost some weight and the only ones I had (from when I gained it) are too big. I went in and tried one size lower. Too big. Then two sizes - too big! then Three!!! I am down three inches in the waist of my jeans. I was so excited I almost died!! So I went home and weighed myself! I am no longer allowed to make fat jokes - I am under the weight requirement. HA! That's 16 lbs since January. (Although, to celebrate I may have dry ribs for supper)

Then I took the dog to the park and we played for awhile. Since spring has come, Maddy isn't much into fetch anymore. She gets very excited to see the ball, I throw the ball and she chases it, but then she sits there and stares at it until I come and pick it up. What? Um, this defeats the purpose of fetch. But whatever. Then I went and swang on the swings. I truely believe that as long as you swing, you can never be old. It was great. The dog got very excited and tried to jump on my lap while I was in the air. So, I stopped the swing and let her on. She loves to swing!! She was very happy even though we were going back and forth. I didn't go very fast though b/c Maddy's a bit jumpy and I didn't want to freak her out.

Now I am settling into the rest of my day and am maintaining my happy mood. Thank God that I finally have some good news. I really needed it.

  3. that's a 5-star day right there, good work. Uh, what are dry ribs? I'm always afraid to ask because it could be ignorance of things Canadian, or it could be regular, stupid guy ignorance.

  6. That was a good one, Janny. I'm stunned that they don't have dry ribs in the states though. What would I do without them? Oh, right. Lose 20 lbs.

  7. Bronwyn, I'm glad your day went well. However...aren't you supposed to be the one training your dog, not the other way around? "Okay, I got the food provider to throw the ball. Now I'll sit beside it until she comes over here. And then we'll do it again. See, I knew there was a way I could get my human to exercise!" I'm may pay for this comment, but it'll be worth it.
