A small, hard callous has formed on the palm of my hand beneath my ring finger from my wedding rings. I pick at it sometimes. My rings sometimes feel like they are suffocating me. Periodically, I take them off to give my finger a rest. Hours later I can run my finger around the space where the rings always sit and I can still feel the mark they leave behind. I wonder how long it would take before it would feel like they were never there.
I was doing some cleaning/organizing and came upon some old pictures that I never got around to putting in a photo album. They were from my oldest daughter's graduation and in one picture my daughter stands between my husband and myself and I am smiling. What kills me about this photograph is that I was going through a very difficult time and you would never know it by looking at that picture. I think photos only tell one side of the story, or maybe photos just outright lie sometimes.
My new guilty pleasure is having the mug shots of those people in my county who've been arrested the night before delivered to my in box each morning. A friend sent me the link and all I had to do was supply my email address and I started receiving all the dirt. I love pouring over the faces and guessing what they've done to get arrested, then clicking on the photo to see if I am right. Some young girls who have been arrested pose as though they are on a photo shoot for America's Next Top Model. This kills me, too.
I was glad to see Matt sent packing last night on Hell's Kitchen. His eyebrows alone were grounds for dismissal in my opinion. Guys with feminine looking eyebrows are something I dislike. I'm not into feminine looking men especially when they whine like babies about having a migraine. Also, Matt had a diary room interview where he called one of the women on the show a "bitch with lots of cellulite." Unacceptable!!! Men who could stand to lose 40 lbs. themselves should not be dispensing weight comments as though they are Brad Pitt. Good riddance to that sweaty slob.
We're having breakfast for dinner tonight because it's too hot to do anything more. There is a fly buzzing around this house and it is fast as lightening. It must have slipped into the house when I was dragging groceries inside. If there's one thing I can't stand, it's a fly buzzing around my house that I can't catch. My goal for tonight will be tracking that thing down and swatting it to death.
