I'm snotty

Ick. I've somehow managed to get sick. I don't know if it's this summer cold or if it's all the dust I stirred up last week in my big office revamp or what. I just know that I hate being sick and I have the po pitifuls. I took some miracle drug this morning from the last time I was sick, and it'll help me get rid of all this junk. And if it works like last time, I'll have crazy energy and no appetite after a few days. Bonus! ;o)

I had a really good but busy weekend. We took my little BIL to see the Simpson's movie Friday night (it was hilarious, but some of the "badness" was unnecessary - I still loved it) and then Jesse spent the night. Saturday was dinner at my mom's for my grandma's b-day, and my step-brother who I haven't seen since 2000 (literally) came with his wife and son. It was nice to see him and meet his family - I just hope he starts coming around more often now that our parents have met his son. It would be even harder on them not to see their grandson now that they know him. (he's 2 1/2) Sunday was crazy busy with Jeremy being presented his ministerial license, our pastor retiring and a region meeting. After all that we went to Wal-Mart, and I saw this really pretty brown suit jacket. I grabbed the 16 - just to see how it looked - and it was too big. So I tried on the 14, and it fit okay, but I decided to try on the 12 just to see how tight it was and guess what? It fit like a glove! I could have totally worn that jacket last night out in public and not feel like it was pulling too tight in anywhere! I was totally blown away. Now, I know it could have been vanity sizing, or whatever, blah blah blah. I don't care. It was a 12!!! I'm still wearing my size 18 pants! I totally need to go shopping. I did finally buy some new panties, though. Although I'm still too cheap for VS, I no longer walk around in baggy bottomed granny panties. (they weren't granny panties when they fit!) :o)

So I'm super duper excited about that. I'm 2 seconds away from TOM so I'm not going to brave a dressing room for another week or so, but after that I'm all about some new clothes! yay!!

I hope you all had a great weekend, too, and have a great OP day!!

I'll take vanity sizing any day and so should you. Besides, they don't vanity size 2 sizes off! So there's definately something happening right?
You should try taking american or canadian ginsing for your cold. Supposed to work (that's all that ColdFX is and ginsing's cheaper)
