Wednesday Wramble

How annoying is that title? I know. Plenty annoying.

My skin used to crawl at any attempt at cutesy spelling-- Kwik Kopy-- etc. Now that I have an iPhone, I find myself typing things like, "How r u?" and "k!" Yes, the former English teacher has gone to the dark side.

I am already running late today, and by running-- I mean crawling-- reading the paper, letting my hair start to air dry, and at some point contemplating being somewhat semi-productive.

The main problem is THE HEAT! Having spent 5 straight days outside sweating through: field day, multiple ball games, and an outdoor festival, I feel like a limp noodle. I can't seem to do anything.

Even the prospect of drying my hair seems overwhelming, so I guess I'll traipse into work with it wet again and just roll with it when people ask if I've gone on an early morning swim.

As if.

This would be the time for my annual question of, "Why do I lose weight in the winter and gain it in the summer?" If you've been with me for 3 years, and had to hear this 3 times, I am so sorry.

I just don't understand why, if I'm sweating out all of this water weight, the scale keeps going up and I still can't zip my capris. Perhaps it's the ice cream, the LACK of an early morning swim, or the general lethargy. I'd rather blame it on the superior absorbent quality of my hair. You be the judge.

My living room is now full of the goodies I'm selling this Saturday in Falls Church, Virginia at Stifel and Capra. I'm a little freaked out by the sheer volume of stuff. Transporting it should be interesting. I'll have a 10 x 10 space, but I'm thinking 10 x 20 would be much better.

I am LOVING the awesomeness of what I have to sell, but I'm worried that no one will come!

If you can come by on Saturday from 10-2, please do!

I'll be the one with the under-boob sweat lines and the fanny pack.

Hard to resist?

Ok, I have figured out where this event is taking place. Right across the street from Anthony's! I've been wanting to try Anthony's for breakfast for some time now, hopefully I can get it together and make my way out of the house for breakfast and a flea market.

Yay! That would be great!

I would go if I could. Especially if it is somewhere hot! We had HAIL today in California on June first!! ???

Something tells me you won't be the only one with under boob sweat and a fanny pack.

But since I'm far, far away, I really don't need any other defining accessories. Hope it goes well and you return home with a completely lightened load!

I don't need any extra sweat, thankyouverymuch.

If I were anywhere near Falls Church, VA I would be there! I'll be thinking of ya, though.

Jill said...

Oh I wish I was living there - I'd TOTALLY be there! Probably buying all your stuff too!

Unknown said...

Ohh, wish I could be at your sale! Sounds like fun. And I'm doing the same thing with the capris. My husband asked me if I needed to buy some new ones and I told him no, I need to get my fat butt into the ones I have! I have a high school reunion in about 6 weeks, so I have got to get busy!

You are the first person I've met that encounters this strange phenomenon (that's right, I'm calling it a phenomenon) of weight gain in summer and weight loss in winter. It always happens to me. I can't totally figure it out. I go through it every summer. I'm trying this year to be preventative and lose a couple of pounds so it won't be so bad when I pack it on later. And, now I'm off to eat that butterfinger in my pantry. See, this is the problem.
