...Is So Glad Yesterday Is Over!!

You know you're addicted to Facebook when your sentences all start with verbs!!

....is getting ready to vent...so beware :o)

Anyway, yesterday kinda sucked.  Work was blech...10 hours of stress.  My foot has really been bothering me lately...going to the doc next week.  I'm so frustrated with this stupid foot!!  It's been almost 9 months since I first broke it, and I am STILL having trouble.  ugh.  After I got home, I dropped a 2 liter of Dr. Pepper on the floor of my kitchen and apparently hit it just right, because it EXPLODED all over my kitchen floor, inside the freezer, under my fridge, literally EVERYWHERE.  At that point I was ready to just leave it and go take a nap...but good sense won over.  The girls came running in, the kitty ran like a bullet AWAY from the explosion.  At first the girls thought the kitty did it, until they saw me standing in the middle of the Dr. P ocean....oh, well.  They were really helpful, handing me towels.

It took me a while to clean it up and I got annoyed at a certain weight loss advertisement on TV.  My girls were watching Little House on the Prairie, and here comes the Jenny Craig commercial with what's-her-name from Star Wars.  I got so annoyed when she said that Jenny was making her feel pretty again.  So, here are my beautiful daughters, listening to this crap.  Why wasn't she pretty "before Jenny"??  My older daughter has certain issues with her self-image...she's super tall for her age, but she translates that as she's fat.  We have trouble getting her to eat regular meals because she thinks she's fat.  She is so NOT fat.  But, I am just SICK of the world feeding this image to girls that they can't be beautiful unless they are thin.  Then they carry this awful view through their whole lives.  I know plenty of heavier people who are beautiful AND healthy.  I just have issues with the way we teach young girls that if they don't fit into the world's idea of beautiful, they are not beautiful. Why don't we focus on what the person is like on the inside as the judge of true beauty??  Everyone wants to look good on the outside, and I am not discounting that we should all look our best, but the TRUE worth of a person should not be reflected by the scale but by how we treat others and the character we posses as people.  I finished mopping up my mess and was ready to write a letter to Jenny Craig, but they depend on people who have low self-worth because of their weight, so they're not gonna listen to me.  *Deep sigh*

On a crafty note, I went to my sewing room and proceeded to cut out my pieces for the KAL and accidentally cut out WAY too many triangles because I was so busy listening to the show River Monsters and this crazy fish who likes to eat male parts.  SMH!  It was time for a nap.
