A Lot of Nuthin..

I'm making progress with Fusion7, doing the little canned website building exercise. Fun fun! Rob put some more shelves up in my studio, so now I can get some more of that crap out of the way, and continue on to my evil master plan of procuring spare furniture for "the cause"...most specifically, our outgrown kitchen table, which I plan to raise the legs of and use as a cutting/ironing table. I finished the last purple postcards (I bet you thought I was done with those!) and they are addressed and ready for me to take to the P.O. in the am. MIL comes tomorrow afternoon, and although I did spend a good amount of time cleaning today, it is still not done!
I read an interesting article this weekend, and I am wondering if any of you have heard of this theory before. Since it involves weight loss methods, you know I am ALL over that shite. It seems rather simplistic, but I guess it has worked and it surely doesn't cost as much as a gastric bypass (which I am on a neverending quest to convince my PCP that I desperately need!*) Anyway, not a lot has been happening, but I know now that the fall weather is on its way that I will become crazy motivated to do my knitting and other fun things, so more will follow. For now, I am concerned with getting my poor kid back from Mississippi before another big one comes and washes the gulf coast back to North Dakota!! That's all for now, thanks for reading!

*Yes, I have researched the surgery and procedure extensively and know all of the risks, and I know that my stomach will be the size of an acorn and I will only be able to drink soup from a thimble for 40 years, while wandering in the desert until the Lord shows us the way to the promised land. Or...maybe that was Moses.

One of my best friends AND her husband both have had gastric bypass. Her husband, at 6 feet, once weighed 450; now he's at a relatively svelte 300. She went from a size 28 to a size 16-18. Thing is, he did better after the surgery than she did -- much, much better. She was a bridemaid in my wedding six months after her bypass, and she was puking in the bathroom after eating a tiny bit of prime rib. She also had a lot of nutritional problems during her recent pregnancy and had to go in for vitamin shots. I'm not saying don't do it, but as you well know, it's major surgery, and it does involve a lot of lifestyle changes that a lot of people gloss over in the quest to be thin. If you ever do decide to do it, I can put you in touch with them. They'd be happy to talk to you.

The hubby is doing better, although he's been covered in hives for three days. We're having our initial consult with the rheumy tomorrow. I'll keep you posted. Talk to you soon.
