Wet, Soggy Mess

I realize that I have been slacking on my tracking this week and also doing a little too much snacking. I need to re-focus! I also want to start taking pictures of my food and I hope that it will make my blog more interesting.

Oh sure, you may tell me it's interesting. You may lie through your teeth! But I know the truth! It actually doesn't help that we are swamped at work. Every time I think we are getting less swamped, we get more swamped again!

But the only thing I really have to tell you all today is that yesterday I was a wet, soggy mess!

I noticed when I was leaving work that it was drizzling. I borrowed an umbrella from a co-worker. I got outside and it didn't work. It wouldn't go up and stay up.

Well, no biggie, it was only drizzling! Well, when I got off the train, it was pouring! A torrential downpour! Like a hurricane! And I walked to the train that day. It's over a mile! Are you kidding me? I had no one at home to call since I live alone. I thought about calling my cousin but didn't want to bother them (they have a relatively new baby). I sucked it up and decided to grin and bear it!

The roads were flooded. There aren't any sidewalks in my neighborhood. I was DRENCHED! About 3/4 of the way home, a nice man asked if I wanted a ride home. I thanked him for the offer but declined. I was almost home, already soaked, and don't like getting into strange people's cars! Although, if someone offered while I was still at the train station, I probably would have accepted!

It's so hard to look good when you are a soggy mess! There was no dry spot on me!

**Tonight I should be chopping all my hair off. Chin length is what I'm going to get. At least, that's what I'm shooting for right now. We will see if I chicken out later. I have a picture that I'm bringing with me. I'll take before and after pictures of my hair if I decide to do it!


  1. so excited to see your new hair. I keep trying to get up the courage to chop mine off!

  2. Ugh, I hate getting caught in the rain!

    Yay for a new do!
