I was somewhere in India, touring around with some of my family, seeing the usual sights...turbans, snakes in baskets, Aladdin's home in Acraba...that sort of thing. When next thing I know I am flying through the air, not on a magic carpet, but on the back of some old man wearing a turban. We were just cruising around, but the weird thing is that he had these delicious, yet odd looking, berries strewn all along the outside of his turban. I was merrily going along, seeing the sights and eating the berries! I remember flying through the trees and following the snakes and making loop-d-loops (like on a rollercoaster) and at one point I thought I might throw up.
Ok, here is where it gets really weird and a bit gross. My sister, Angie, and I had to go the bathroom. Well I guess in India, most women just squat (in my dream, that is) so Ang and I had to pay all this money to use a flushing toilet. When we went in there were like 20 women following us...they wanted to watch us crazy "Americans" sit on an actual toilet. So we did our business, but just before we flushed, an Indian woman came in with a cut open pig and spread the bloody pig all over the walls where we touched and on the toilet seat! Then she just put him in the toilet and flushed him and our pee away!! OK....what the h***!!!!! Where did that come from? To end this crazy tale my mom and I were arguing over whether or not we could buy Zanax at the local mart. I said yes we could, and we should, she disagreed. (Mexico, anyone?)
Anyways, that was my totally crazy night. The thing is, I didn't even take NyQuil or Acid before bed, see Lewis Carroll would be proud... this story would put his "Alice in Wonderland" to shame!
At that my friends, is one bad ass dream...that's how we roll around here in MY head!! Maybe I'll need a nap this afternoon...I'm a little tired from all that traveling:)

So our friends, the Bolingbrokes came over and blessed us with their presence last night. We had a good time, playing cards and stuffing our faces with junk food!
Then it was time to get serious and do battle with Christine on Guitar Hero!! Yes, it's true...she kicked my ***, pretty much kicked it clear from here to Toledo! All I have to say about that is....RAT FARTS!! I am going to have to do some serious practicing so that next time I can redeem myself. But in spite of getting killed, I still had a great time. So thanks Kev and Chrissy Lou...we had a great time!

Me being able to go to the gym and workout without being so bored I find myself counting the number of boob jobs I see! You see, thanks to my wonderful hubby and my new iPod Touch, I have downloaded the first season of "Grey's Anatomy". Yes, I did say 1st seson, and yes I know I am probably the last human alive who has not been watching this show. But I am here now and all is well! I took it to the gym and watched the whole 45 minute episode while doing the treadmill and the bike. And I am happy to report that it made the time fly by! So hopefully I can keep up this pace and kill 2 birds with one boulder, I mean stone...that is, catch up on this hit show and lose some serious lbs. Hmmmm...sound too good to be true? Well at least I'll get in some good TV watching! Wish me luck.

So my grateful thought for the day was this....thank you Heavenly Father for letting this sun shine on me today. The mountains were absolutely breath taking with all the snow! So there, that's my cheesy post for this Sunday night. I am sure I will have something less Sunday-ish to say this week;)

Tonight Randy and I got to meet up with my sister, Camille and her husband Jeff. They are in town with some friends for a ski weekend and this was the only chance to see them. (I guess sisters rank low on the totem pole:) They had a couple of hours to waste while waiting for the rest of their group. Anyways... we met them downtown at one of my favorite restaurants, Ichiban. But please don't let this picture fool you...I did not eat Sushi, on the other hand Randy did! You see I seem to have the tastebuds of a 2 year old. I seriously think something happened to me when I was a kid...I probably drank scalding hot water and it stunted the growth of my taste buds. I kid you not...I am the most boring eater, ask anyone who knows me! I did enjoy their chicken and vegetable tempura though...most excellent.
So thanks sis for meeting us, it was great to see you even if it was only for a couple of hours!

So this is how I feel (the picture says it all)... my heart is longing for warm, sunny weather and harsh reality is just dumping cold, wet snow on my dreams. Oh well...I'll just keep dreaming of sunnier days and stock up on my happy pills:)
