*****Today I'm doing something new. I'm going to a chiropractor for the first time. I'm a tad on the nervous side too! I keep having problems with my shoulder & neck & its bothering my arm. Everyone is telling me praises of a chiropractor so I'm going to check it out. I had to go to physical therapy a few years back for my shoulder & the therapist would 'adjust' my neck & every time he did it, I would literally scream like he was stabbing me. I could never get used to it. So I'm kind of nervous about it - but everyone says that a good chiropractor wont do anything I'm not comfortable with. I told Ricky this morning where my insurance papers were in case the guy snapped my neck & killed me... Ricky just shook his head &said, "think you're a little over-dramatic?" ... nooooo wayyyyyyy!!!!
Isnt it crazy how you try to get healthy only to make things hard on your body. Running has made my knees hurt, my hips ache, my quads quiver (that's fun to say together), & now is probably causing my neck/shoulder pain... being healthy is DANGEROUS! ... gotta love it!
*****Speaking of healthy - someone was asking me questions about exercise & food & then they said, "You're the healthiest person that I know" ... I almost spit my Diet Coke in their face from laughing....
*****And still going with the 'healthy' theme - let's talk McDonald's Happy Meals :) I have to say, I love that you can get a chicken nugget meal & the whole thing is under 300 calories. Those little fries are the cutest thing ever! I have an obsession with things that are minature versions of bigger things - so I almost didnt eat them - just wanted to hold them & say, "Ahhh - how cute".. .but I was hungry... Love they put the apple dippers in them instead of the cookies too! Good for McDonalds for trying to make kids a tad bit healthier!
The coolest thing about the Happy Meal too was you could go online & enter a code & they would plant an apple tree... I LOVE stuff like that - help the environment any way you can!
... & I got a Clumsy Smurf toy... dang it, I wanted Smurfette...
I think at my parents house in the basement, my Smurf Mead Binder is still on the shelf. I need to get it out & take with me on my photo shoots to hold the paperwork. I'd be the coolest photographer ever!
....I'll never look at chopsticks the same....
*****SPAT OF THE WEEK: The Lint Trap... Ricky doesnt fold the clothes in the dryer. That's not the spat - that's actually what I prefer. He can't ever fold anything to my liking anyways. That's not to be mean or snooty....Come on everyone - you know the way you fold towels is the ONLY right way to do it... the spat comes with the little lint thing you clean out everytime before the next load. I've noticed lately that it's empty when I pull it out... & the lint? Its laying on the floor in front of the dryer. HUH? Is it somehow falling off of the netting & falling under the dryer onto the floor? ... um... no.... I asked the Hubs yesterday, "Are you cleaning the lint thing?" - to which he said, "Yeah" - with a beam of pride on his face. To which I replied, "Are you just throwing it on the floor?"... to which the pride kinda feel off his face & he said, "yeah... I didnt see a garbage can anywhere" ... so the floor is the best option? And for the record, the garbage can is literally hitting your butt if you bend over to pull the lint trap out of the dryer. The laundry room is like the size of a walk in closet... not like the garbage can is hiding somewhere & you could miss it..... and really? the biggest question for me is that he just wants to walk in & empty the lint thingie without even pulling the clothes out of the dryer? (please, no folding though)... I'm married to one weird fella! ... (& yes, I do love all his weirdness... sometimes)
******FYI - No, I never did find an answer about the "mystery picture" ... Someone sent me a picture that was VERY similar (Thanks Bug) but this was a nighttime photo that we had. The search is still on! ... & who knew there was so much "Rapture art" out there! ... I may need to create a new Pinterest file for that category! :)
*****... OK - no... the day is still laying long ahead... what are ya gonna do? Hope everyone's Friday is FABULOUS!
