Lots of ramblings about lots of things

So, my Wii doesn't like me. The Husband got on, after not using it for 133 days, and it told him he lost 10 lbs. TEN POUNDS. Every single flippin time I get on it, it tells me I have gained at least 1 lb. Last night was 1.1. This frustrates me because I have been exercising 3 times a week and semi watching what I eat. Ive only been doing it for 2 weeks but still. I shouldn't gain. The Husband said some nonsense about it being muscle before you actually lose blah blah. Nothing I really wanted to hear, even if it is true. A few months ago was the first time I have ever tried to diet/exercise. In my whole life! I didn't lose anything then either and now I know why I quit. I guess I want instant satisfaction. I don't have tons of patience....I need results to keep my attitude up. Oh and I don't want to cut out all junk food or stop drinking my 2 Mt Dew's per day. I really don't think that's a lot to ask for but apparently it is in the 'workout world'. blech. I look at old high school friends on Facebook and they have all gained lots of weight. Is that just your destiny as you get older? I dont want to gain more but at the same time I don't want to miss out on all the yummy food. __________________________________________________________
My child has a busy social life. And she's not even 8yrs old yet. She has a friend coming over Sunday to play....the plans were confirmed yesterday around noon. Yesterday at dinner M tells me how she's going to work with my mom Monday and Tuesday. Uhhh no one told me this. We will be spending all day with my mom on Saturday so it would have made more sense for her to stay Sat night through Tue evening.....a little vacation for her. Now she comes home with us and then we have to drive her back to my mom's after Ava leaves Sunday evening. She cried and said she was mad at herself for not telling me sooner. I felt bad but they cant tell me these things at the last minute and I wont cancel plans with Ava because that's not right. I excuse my mom too because she has alot on her plate lately and she thought it was next week. ____________________________________________________________
Saturday we are going to move my grandfathers things and clean his apt. I sooo hope this isn't an emotional event for my mom because I suck at these things. Im just uncomfy and don't know what to do. I hardly even cry in front of people, except The Husband.
We bought a tent last weekend. Now we just have to find time to go camping. lol Busy people, we are! Buying this tent has proved that I have some deep rooted issues. lol I keep thinking that the tent doesn't have locks/doors/anything to protect us. A friend of mine said 'killers don't hang out at campgrounds' and while that phrase makes me laugh every time I think it.....I think shes wrong. Why wouldn't they? Easy access, makes sense to me. I think that whenever we go camping I will have to get falling down drunk (yes in front of the kids who have barely seen me drink) or heavily medicate myself in order to not worry about this. Our first camping will be in our backyard and the second will probably be in my moms backyard. lol She has a pool so we could spend the day at the pool and hang out all night. It seemed like a cheap vacation to do with the 3 kids.....minus the killer part. ___________________________________________________________
Micheal Jackson. I don't know how I feel about him. Sure he was a star but I still don't know that he wasn't a pedophile also. I'm just kinda neutral on his death. I'm rather shocked that so many people are saddened by it. I must have been under the impression that everyone thought he was a pedophile. Last night on FB I watched a friend get tore to shreds over her comment about him.....from her friends who obviously thought she was defaming his character or whatever. I was surprised to find out he was 50. Surgery does wonders for wrinkles I guess. I'm starting to get 2 wrinkled in between my eyes. Not liking that!!

I guess that's enough thoughts for this early in the morning, especially on a Friday!
Have a great weekend!!

I'm in awe really at MJ's death. I was a diehard fan pre-identity crisis days, but since the last decade of allogations, I'm not sure where I stand. I'm sickened though at the people who talked all kinds of crap about him and now are totally in some kind of spaced out hysterical fit now that's he dead, as if they were his #1 fans all along. Pffft!

And maybe I'm just a Wii-tard, but how the hell does that thing know if you've gained/lost any weight? Is there a scale in that thing? LOL I'm so out-of-date with new tech things.

The Wii Fit comes with a balance board that you stand on and it does weigh you and tell you your BMI. You input your age and height.

Mine doesnt like me, obviously.

So I will horrify myself and admit to the world of blog my very bad recent experience with the wii fit.... Mind you I have been going to the gym religiously for the past 4 weeks.... (like 5-6 days doing weights, yoga, mixed with a bit of cardio!!!)

I got on after a bunch of days (maybe 100) and I gained 12 freaking pounds! 12!!!! Really WTF?!?! UGH :( I feel you and I now hate the wii fit and swear ours is broke ;)

MJ's death.... hmmm it surprises me as to how many people are mourning him as well.... Neutral is a good way to describe my feelings as well....

Good luck today. I hope it all goes well for you and your mom!! thinking of you! :)

My neighbor has the Wii Fit and she says it does the same thing to her. Then she comes over and uses my scale and its the same weight that she is at the doctor. The Wii is all jacked up.

And, I too, need instant results or I feel like giving up. Sigh.

I'm not a fan of camping, and the reason you listed is definitely one of them. I mean, scary movies anyone? Its like the perfect place! But, I've been camping many times, even been left in the tent alone at 6 months pregnant for 7 hours through the night while the hubby went night fishing. I'm still alive.

MJ's death is very... Idk I'm very whatever about it. He wasn't a great person, but he had great music so it seems everyone is wanting to overlook the more recent years. Still, though, I'm amazed that everyone is rushing out to buy his CDs and all this memorbilia. What does it matter now? He's DEAD.
