Sunday, Jesse and Crystal dropped off Emily after what sounds like a great weekend together. That's when I noticed it. Crystal is wearing an engagement ring. Not just any engagement ring, though. Oh no. It is an exact replica of the ring Jesse gave me all those years ago. Geez. So she recently accepted a job at Bottom Line Bookkeeping (where I worked when Jesse and I got engaged and the first couple of years we were married) and she is wearing my engagement ring. Is it just me or is all this a little Stepford-esque?

If you drink the recommended daily ounces of water your new hobby will be peeing.

I'm so damn hungry

This summer I'm enrolled in a Yoga/Health Class for my kinesiology credit. As part of the class I had to calculate my ideal weight and caloric intake and keep a food diary showing an effort to be healthy. I am supposed to consume somewhere between 1400 and 1500 calories a day.I think it is killing me- I'm so damn hungry that all I can think about is food.Right now, for instance, I am pondering a hamburger with cheese and bacon. Yesterday I could not stop thinking of quesadillas. Plus, I'm trying to drink the recommended amount of water per day. Do you know that if you drink all the water you are supposed to in a day you will gain a new hobby? You will. It is called peeing like a racehorse every hour. So far today I have had three and a half glasses and I have gone to the bathroom six times since I got up at 6:45. I do not have time for this many calls from nature. It would be different if the water were helping with the hunger but it is not. Can I seriously fail a class for refusing to give up calories? Argh!
