Okay...so I love my friend Lila, but NOT $1000 worth (sorry dear!!).
And really....I screamed....and I said " %#^$&$" and "&$^!#!**" ...and then I got a little nauseous!! Okay....whattodo?whattodo?whattodo?holyhellwhatdoIdonow?!?! Forgetting that I really function better when I actually breathe was not good. The K-man was totally useless...but then again, I'm thinking that my explanation was not the best I could do (remember that whole not breathing thing) and he really had no clue as to what had just happened. "Lila-san gave you $1000?!?!" AARRRRGGGGHHHHHH! JUST LET ME PINCH YOUR HEAD WHY DON'T YOU?!?!?!
And then, it dawned on me....my friend had inadvertently passed to me the
"Lucy and Ethel Phenomenon".
After a 10 minute TOTAL panic attack....(filled with much more colorful language!!)...I finally got it together enough to find the number to the Denver office. As it wasn't yet 9:00 AM, no one was in, so I had to leave a message, grrrrrrrr....yeah, I'm sure that one was real understandable. Then, I came back to my computer and found an e-mail address to someone and sent a "pleasepleasepleaseplease can you help me?" e-mail.
In about 5 minutes, I got this response:
No need to call back from Japan! I received your phone message and am refunding you $975.00 based on your donation of $1000.00 that you intended to be $25.00. I am attaching a copy of the refund transaction.
Now...can I hear a Praise the Lord from someone out there?!?!?!? Thank you !!!!!!!!!
You know....today....I can look back and yeah, that was pretty funny. But last night... "WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!"
Yes...I know it's Wednesday and time for the 5K Ass Update. Well...hmmmm....I have been doing the hula, not every night, but this week I did it 3 times....which is pretty good for my schedule, I think.
This week has been really fun in that more people are noticing that I have lost weight. As of this morning, I am at an 8 kilogram loss....which is....8 X 2.2 = 17.6 pounds. Yeah!! I now weigh about 3 pounds less than what I did when we got married 12 years ago!!! And....when I lose 8 more pounds, I will weigh what I did when I was a Senior in high school....and yet...that lovely body, me thinks, is gone forever!!!!
Today in class we were talking about fashion and when the phrase "baggy jeans" came up, I could actually use my own jeans as an example!!! That was great!!! I would like to lose 8-10 more pounds....not putting myself under any deadline or anything but....by Christmas I want to be able to buy some new clothes for myself. I want to get rid of those baggy jeans (!!!) and get me some new ones that fit. I want to be able to wear all the clothes that are in my "skinny box" that is waaaaaay in the back of my closet!!! (The K-man, being a man, just doesn't understand the whole concept of a "skinny box" or a "fat box"!!)
Instead of a derriere picture, (I actually forgot to have one of the boys take one...they got a new Sponge Bob Square Pants DVD set and well, everything else ceased to exist!!), I thought I would just post one of me....on a good hair day...feeling great about pretty much everything!!
And that is what I wish for you....a "good hair and feeling great about everything" kind of day!
