Same here. If I can't get my husband to tell me that an outfit makes me look fat, who am I supposed to ask? If the danged dress makes me look fat, I want to know so I can wear something else.

DH will outright tell me if something doesn't look good on me, and will also suggest jewelry and accessories. I appreciate his opinions.

If I had the guts to ask Shrek is something made me look fat, he would say, "Nope, your fat makes you look fat." Closely followed by, "And I love every bit of it." I'm going to sprain my arm trying to stop an overhand blow at some point...

I just found out that there is a farm less then 5 miles from my house that makes homemade natural cheeses and sells it all over the states. They also sell raw milk.

I bought some cheddar cheese & it is so very good!

I will be trying their milk some time soon

Nice find Matey! I learned during yesterday's storms you don't try to take your kitty out on the porch while it's thundering and lightning. I have the scratches to prove it.

I learned that water aerobics CAN make you tired if you work hard enough. I went above and beyond today, to make the workout do more for me. Yes, I'm tired, and I have some more grass to mow. I think I will eat lunch first....

Cardiologist says I HAVE to start 30 min aerobics a day...I asked her if that was on top of the hour I did a day along with weights every other day. Thus we began looking into the medications I am taking and why I'm gaining weight. And my chest x-ray turned out fine...good thing Ii took the uranium out of my pocket...

Great new about your xrays, PF. Now, that weight gain thing is because you've been carrying around your one weakness, Kryptonite. So be a good girls and get rid of it. Sometimes you have to quit trying to be like everyone else and accept your roll as hero, and go save the world.

LOL! and all this time I thought my weakness was food Thanks Chief. The medication change for my rapid heart rate isn't working, yet.

I learned that it really is true. The bigger they are the harder they fall. And they fall as far as they can before hitting rock bottom.

What I can't seem to learn is what makes them think they can go through life with immunity and never face the consequences of their actions. Do they really think they are that special?
