TOM blues

OK, I'm due to start my period tomorrow. I'm not only retaining water, I'm retaining other things since my horrible day last Sunday. ;-) Yuk! We had our pistol course on the range today, so it's been a long, hot day and I feel even more bloated because of that. I actually only went for the second half of the day when we did individual shooting instruction with a student. I don't think I'd have made it through a full day! But I had an awesome student who scored 237 out of 250 on her qualification. Time to get to bed now!

Good news - the other day, I went to a local Kmart because they carry the long Lee Riders jeans. Well, turns out that store is closing, which was nice because everything was at least 25% off, but bad that they didn't have a very good selection of jeans left. I did get some khakis, capris and shorts - all in TENS - which was REALLY REALLY good. (Happy feet dance!) But I am disapppointed they are closing down. And I did notice that they had NO longs in size 8, so I'd better quit dropping sizes. :-D

GREAT news - hubby gets home on Tuesday. He's been gone for over 2 weeks and it's been years since we've been apart for that long. I don't like it! (And bad timing because of the first issue I mentioned!) ;-P And then my sister and her kids will come on Wed or Thurs. It will be fun to have them here for the 4th. Our little town has an awesome fireworks display and the adjacent small town has a fun street fair and parade during the day.

My cat is lying on my arm and she keeps biting my thumb. I'm thinking it may be because I'm typing and not petting her??? Goofy cat.

Not sure if any of you out there are fans of the channel TCM, but they have had some AWESOME movies on all weekend. Yesterday was Hitchcock all day. I LURV me some old movies!!!! :-D Hitchcock totally ROCKS! I DVRed the ones that were on in the middle of the night.

Well, really need to get to bed. G'nite all!

so, do we need to come a little later? I am debating on whether we start on Wednesday afternoon or Thursday morning...maybe if I went to bed I wouldn't be so tired?
Goodnight!

No, dear one. Your arrival was listed in the GREAT news section. I'm ready for you as soon as you get here. :-)

you must be SOOO excited for the husband to return (ahhh timing :))
when mine worked in a different job and would be away for weeks at a time I loathed it and loved it in a way.
it always reminded me how much I appreciate and miss him.
still
after all these years.

Don't you just want to run around the store showing everyone the tags on your clothes? LOL

Hope you get back to100% soon!

Diana said...

Love the TCM! Have since I was in h.s. Greatest movies and ones you'd never encounter otherwise. It's where I became an Audrey (hepburn) fan. Oh, yeah, I was/am a big hitchcock fan too :) You've got good taste!

Patty said...

I almost missed your before/after pics!! Those are fantastic...what a wonderful transformation. You truly do look like your own daughter! :-) I hope all your followers got to see those!

So glad for hubby's return and your visit from Sis! Sounds like you have a great week ahead full of opportunities to model all those size TENS.

Diana - yeah, I love Audrey Hepburn, too. When I got home last night, My Fair Lady was on. My kids and my hubby know that a good classic movie is ALWAYS a good gift for me. One year for Christmas, hubby got me The Thin Man complete series. My daughter got me a Cary Grant boxed set. And The Philadelphia Story, got her dad Bringing Up Baby. Love Hepburn/Tracy movies, Bogart/Bacall movies. Maybe I should have made this a separate post! :-D

Mama Bear June said...

Oh, and Cammy, YES! I was really wanting to tell everyone and show them. It was hard not to jump up and down at the register! :-D

Hanlie said...

Yay for hubby coming home! And cute that the cat is biting you...

Martha said...

Yech, you're not alone. I started mine the day Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett passed away :P so it will be an easy date for me to remember and boy do I feel lousy! I hope you feel better soon :) and congrats on scoring a few deals for SIZE 10 bottoms!
