More Randomness

I have not been sleeping well lately.  For a while I was going to bed around 10 or 11 and sleeping through the night.  Now I am lucky if I get to sleep before 2.  I have always been a night person, but this is ridiculous.  This non-sleeping issue is why my friends you are getting my random thoughts!!  You should feel lucky.

I have a late night addiction.  No, it is not food related shockingly!  I am flippin' addicted to King of the Hill.  It comes on at midnight and 12:30.  I don't know why I love this show, but I am.  Let's keep this on the down low, shall we?

How much weight am I going to lose in my feet?  I have lost some, but if I drop 100 lbs or something close to that are my feet going to slim down significantly?  Be brutally honest.  I ask because I couldn't stop myself today from buying a pair of wedge sandals from Old Navy.  It was the last day of the ENTIRE store 30% off and they are really cute.  On the shelf that is. Once these sweet shoes get strapped on ol' Fred Flintstone feet here they are not so cute.  I wear a size 10.  And alot of times I need the wide.  I can't help it.  My dad has big feet and I come by it naturally.  Anyway, my feet just look goofy in the shoes and I really don't want to take them back.  So....should I save them for down the line when my feet become more Wilma than Fred? 

So, I have started wearing my glasses again when I use the computer.  I got the glasses about a year and a half ago and wore them for about a month and then just stopped cold turkey.  I don't know why, don't judge.  I think I look like a dork in them so maybe that's why I stopped?  Who knows, but dorky or not they are on and shocking my headaches are gone when I am on the computer.  Funny how that works, huh? 

I think I may have lost a friend.  When I was in FL one of my best friends organized a ladies night out.  I was excited about going but I had just gotten my cast off and my foot was still sore.  My brother had just graduated so she allowed him to come.  He was all excited.  My brother is an awesome dancer, so he was stoked about getting his groove on.  Well, we get where we were going and since it was Memorial Day weekend all of the bars changed their policy from 18 and up to 21 and up.  My brother is not 21.  I felt horrible that he could not get in. He felt bad because he thought he was dragging me down.  I explained to my friends that I could not send my brother home alone. Also, my foot was killing me.  I think my one friend was pissed.  I really hope that this little thing does not ruin our friendship.  Morgan, if you are reading this I still love you and hope you call me soon.

I have not gotten on the scale this week.  It is that dreaded TOM so, I am just waiting it out and see how it goes when it's over.  I am not going to stress about this. At all. 

Ok, I think I am done rambling for the night/morning.  I hope everyone has a great Wednesday!


  1. Hi,

    I wouldn't worry about your were right to take care of your brother I think. and fee have gone down a bit. I can also wear high heels for much longer without being in pain. My latest was a 1/2 mile walk (each way) in them! I was pretty pumped when I got back to my hotel room that evening and did not feel any pain at all!!

    I would keep the shoes. If they are close to fitting they should look great.


  2. hehehe - loving the fred/wilma comment :-)

    Sorry about your friend - I hope she comes around. Your brother needed you to stick with him - imagine how bad he would have felt heading back alone!!

  3. I'm sure your friend isn't mad. You had to take care of your brother AND your foot hurt. As to the foot question - YES! They will slim down a lot. I have space between my toes and they haven't seen daylight since 1997. Also, I've gone from a 9 to a 7.5/8. No idea how they lost length but they did. LOL! :)

  4. My feet always shrink when I lose weight. And...personally I think if your friend ditches you for something like that, she wasn't much of a friend in the first place.
    I hope your sleep issues work out!

  5. Hey lady...long time no talk! I have been a TERRIBLE blogger but decided to get on this morning and read some :) First of all, I would keep the shoes but then again I am a bad influence when it comes to shopping. I buy things and save them for later ALL the time! I wore size 10 before surgery and even just after losing 35 pounds I wear a your feet will definitely shrink!

    Also Im not sure if you got my text yesterday but I was just wondering if you had talked to your aunt? Just curious!! Lets do dinner soon!

  6. I have the same feet as you! Hope that mine shrink!

    You did the right thing going home with your brother, if your friend ditches you for that she's not worth having as a friend.

  7. My feet have shrunk a little bit, but I swear, if they start shrinking more I'm gonna be pissed! I've spent a long time building up that damn shoe collection of mine! I too wear a 10 and can sometimes squeeze into a 9 or so.

    Sorry about your friend...hopefully things will work themselves out.

  8. i have found that my feet are about half a size smaller since dropping about 60 pounds. i say keep the shoes. if after you've lost some weight in your feet you don't think they look good. give 'em up to the sisterhood. just my take.
    so sorry your having a rough time. it'll pass. you have us here for support so feel free to rant/ramble/vent on girlfriend. we're here for you.

  9. Hello... I am a new follower. I love your blog style. I am sure your friend will understand. You have to take care of making sure your brother gets home safe. If she doesn't, it's her loss. *Maria*-Blogger from "This one time at Band Camp..." Check out my blog at
