helloohelloo. I just dragged hubby outside with me to look at the amazing light show that's taking place out there. UN-freakin'believable - it's gorgeous. There's a huge thunder and lightning storm about 50 miles from here (that's what hubby said but it looks like it's just down the block), which is just lighting up the clouds all over the place - south - and then you look directly up, and the sky is totally clear and you can see all of the stars. But there's no sound. It's kind of weird actually, but o-so-pretty.

Guess what! I got my drains out today - yay! You know, I still can't believe that I had this whole thing done - from the GB 2 years ago, to now. I have no tummy pooch! (you can stop reading now if I'm boring you with the blahblah drain business etc). There is rarely a day that goes by that I don't feel extremely fortunate that I was able to have everything done. Especially when I see obese people and think "there but for the Grace of God go I," ya know?

Now, when all of this swelling goes down in a few months, things will be even groovier.

Anyhoo. I don't feel like talking anymore, k?

2 balls

Swinging around two rubber hand grenades on either side of my still swollen kootchie is getting rather old... not to mention the 2 feet of tubing looped from each one into my 12 in. wide "bikini cut" incision. Got the visuals?

Oh, don't get me wrong, I'm not really complaining, just annoyed at times. But I think they'll be coming out soon - so they tell me.

daughter dearest Jennie had a photo shoot the other day for her press release about her promotion (you know how they do that in the biz section of the local newspaper). See? aww... baby girl.

What else... OH, the other day during my afternoon Starbucks coffee run, I was sitting outside, just chillin', and couldn't help but overhear what two younger, teenage girls were talking about. One was showing the other her most recent patch that she sewed on the back of her jeans. Whoa! *Flashback* time. Did any of you guys do that back in the day? Good grief, I had some of the v-e-r-y coolest, almost all patched, jeans in town. Well, after all, what else did one do with jeans that had holes in 'em?

Do you remember me telling you that when I was in H.S., my friends and I all said we were going to wear jeans on 'picture day,' and I was the only one who wore them? Can you imagine? That was a daring thing?? What the heck else did we wear if it wasn't jeans? I can't imagine... I don't even have any other pants than jeans. At least now (size wise).

Alrighty... dang, it's 4:30 already. Where did the day go? OH, I know what else I wanted to say - Tommy Lee is hot!
later guys.
