Things on my mind, miscellaneous edition

Lately I've been wondering whether I'll ever find a job that I can stick with for more than a year and a half. I look at people who've been at the same job for twenty years and think, I'll never be able to do that. I can't stay in one place for so long. It might make me settle down.

I am really glad that Jenn got her blogging mojo back.

My niece Maria is getting too cute for words. Every month my sister-in-law has been taking her to get professional photos, and every time she comes back with an even cuter face. I love her little fat roles. She's got the chubbiest little thighs.

Why can't chubby thighs be considered cute for non-babies? I have chubby thighs. Somebody needs to start appreciating that.

Of course, my own chubbiness is slowly but surely diminishing. I've lost over 25 pounds. It's thrilling to put on a pair of jeans that used to require the lay-down-suck-in method before they could be zipped, and then find they give you a hip hop saggy look circa 1997. I just wish someone else would compliment me. You know you've got your work cut out for you when you lose 25 pounds and your family doesn't notice.

I can't stop buying sheets. It's out of control. I now live at Linen's N' Things.

I have nobody to eat at Chin's Pagoda with me now that My Old Roomie has started a new chapter in her book of life elsewhere in the United States. Of course, this may be part of the reason that I've managed to lose 25 pounds, but I still don't like it. Certain days out of the month I crave Chin's Pagoda, and no one will come with me. I miss My Old Roomie.

I have some news. It'll have to wait, though.


good for you for losing 25lbs! that's not an easy thing to do, and i can't believe no one has noticed!

can't wait to hear your news :)

Saw the clip from your blog in the PD on Sunday and I wanted to be sure to give you a compliment.

Losing 25 lbs. is outstanding. I've tried and it's hard. Stand proud, stand tall and stand 25 lbs. lighter!
