Weekend was very fun. Tommy was so-so -- my old friend was the best thing in it. But it was kind of cool because each seat had its own headphones so the sound mix was really good. I didn't know the story before so was surprised how skimpy it was. But there were a couple of good songs that I didn't know before. And the kid playing Tommy was trying too hard (and not succeeding) at being Roger Daltrey. A fun night though...
Had a fantastic day Saturday -- what fun!! :-) After I went to the gym in the morning, I met PD and her kids at the discount store that I love in her town (where it was SUPER HOT) -- we filled up our cart in no time! Then we went to try on -- that took a while because PD probably had at least 40 dresses and we also had stuff for Princess and Smiley (granddaughters) and me to try on. When PD when in the dressing room, Cry Baby (1-year-old grandson who hates me), of course, started to cry. I am used to this, so it didn't really bother me, but it was stressing her out so I called PD's partner (Daddy) to come get him. Then I walked Cry Baby and Smiley around shopping for some more stuff for Smiley until Daddy showed up (he had no trouble finding us...just follow the sound of the crying baby!). Daddy ultimately took Smiley & Cry Baby home so PD, Princess and I could have some relaxing time.
I ended up getting PD a couple of beautiful dresses and two pairs of dressy shoes for her festive occasions this month, new dresses for Princess and Smiley for the wedding, etc. next weekend, and two dresses for me! Then we headed to get mani/pedi/brow wax at the salon. We had a ball!! We also met a very nice lady there who used to work for the new ortho I've been going to for my wrist and she confirmed my opinion that he's really not a very good doc. The Universe sure was trying to get that message to me -- what is the likelihood of me running into her an hour away from my house or office when my doc is close to my office??? I'll just finish up with him on the wrist...
Anyway, I know PD really had a fantastic and special day (me too) and that was the whole point -- for her to feel special about her b-day. :-) I stayed until she left for her party Saturday night and she looked beautiful (and kept asking me to go with her, but I wanted to go home -- too far to drive after having a drink and too much food to tempt me!).
So I went to the Discount Store near me on the way home and bought some shoes to go with my fantastic new dresses, then to grocery store and got some beer. For dinner I had: beer and celery!! It was too hot to eat...even in by the beach! :-)
Yesterday I got up and headed to the beach where there were thousands of people but a breeze. Stayed down there for about an hour until DB got home (around 1). It was GREAT to see him!! Then we stayed at the beach until about 3...DB got cooked because he refused suntan lotion...oh well! ;-) After that I went to the gym, then we changed and biked down to have dinner at a place on the beach, then met some friends at drum circle, went for a beer at the beach, then home to snuggle. :-)
This morning DB had a doc appt at our house for life insurance and I had a gyno appt. She's putting me on cream hormones now (I've been on drops) and hopefully that will alleviate some of the horrible symptoms I've been having. My hormones were ROCK BOTTOM when I had blood tests two months ago. She said I should feel better in a couple of weeks...whew!! She also was very impressed with my weight loss...told me to keep going low on carbs (which I'm already doing) because the sugar in my blood was a little high or something.
One final thing: it's a lot funner to shop again now that I'm smaller! I had given up that pleasure a lot over the past few years...not consciously...just didn't want to buy things when at least part of me knew I didn't look as good.
