TGIF and 7QT:
Well the biggest news of the week is that I joined Weight Watchers.
But this time it's different (she types optimistically) because it's an At Work plan where a leader comes to our school once a week to weigh us in and have a meeting with us for 12 weeks. The cost is $156 BUT my health insurance will reimburse $150 per year, so it's only $6 total! There's 15 of us doing it so it's kinda fun to be in a group with friendly coworkers and then you can encourage each other during the week (and smack cookies out of each other's hands).
Because he's so
competitive supportive, Phil will be doing the plan with me. Of course, this means he'll eat more food than me and drop weight faster. It must feel good to be a gangster guy.
I got my second Stitch Fix yesterday, and I kept two of the pieces, one gray sweater and one skirt.
My American Express card was having a benefit that if I spent $50 on Stitch Fix, I would get a $25 credit back on my card, so that was fun! My tombstone will read: Never Paid Full Price.
So the musical Hamilton is coming to Providence, RI this year and although I'd loooooove to go, the tickets are gonna be cuckoo expensive. I was like, Hey Lady, why don't you just buy the CD and listen to the music? Then I remembered it's 2018 and people don't buy CDs anymore, so I went on my Amazon music (free with Prime membership) and guess what? I could download the whole entire album for freeeeeee! And guys, there's a few explicit songs due to some choice words, but the music is amazing and I'm learning (re-learning?) history! I'm a closet-rap-lover and an open-musical-lover, so this combo is just so fun to listen to!
Tomorrow, Phil is having a Men's Retreat at our parish and so tomorrow night, I'm going out with a couple of friends for a Mom's Retreat (and to reward ourselves for getting through a busy Saturday as single moms).
That's Stephen Curry's mother, my spirit mom :)
We have not one but TWO new nieces! Phil's sister Kelly had another baby girl (her 5th! one boy!) named Annabel Denise:
And Phil's sister, Diana, had her first baby, Anya Amelia:
Aren't they adorbs?!?! It's so fun that even though my side of the family is done having babies, Phil's side still has younger sisters that can keep going! Right now both sets of our parents have 22 grandchildren. Whoo-hoo!
We're getting a Nor'easter today/tomorrow here. When I went to check it out on the weather channel, this is what it said:
What, praytell, is a BOBOGENESIS???
Bombogenesis, a popular term used by meteorologists, occurs when a midlatitude cyclone rapidly intensifies, dropping at least 24 millibars over 24 hours. A millibar measures atmospheric pressure. This can happen when a cold air mass collides with a warm air mass, such as air over warm ocean waters. The formation of this rapidly strengthening weather system is a process called bombogenesis, which creates what is known as a bomb cyclone.
Oh, well that clears things up ;)
Have a wonderful, wet, wintery weekend everybody! Stay safe!
