I am so glad it is Friday...ok, actually Saturday morning. Ben and I had a great time watching Bill Cosby perform tonight. We also ate a marvelous seafood buffet! Yummo!

I am so cold it is insane. I wore long johns under my jeans to work. Thankfully, I can actually control the temperature in my classroom. (In previous years, I had a thermostat on the wall that was purely an illusion of control.) I know a few of my students think our room is really warm, but I have to keep the temperature bumped up to help me stay warm. This is even with dressing in layers. I know I used to get cold when I was fat, but seriously, I never got this achy chilled to the bone cold that I get now. I guess that is a price to pay in order to be healthy and at a normal body weight.

I read on a blog about a woman who was attending a morning swim class, and there was a lady there with really wrinkled skin. She knew that the woman had most likely had WLS. She was talking about how comfortable she was in her own body. I would like to get to that point. The point where I could feel ok about being out in public without making sure every bit of sagging skin was perfectly covered up.

Tomorrow Ben has a special day planned for us to go out and visit the different spots that were significant in our relationship. It starts at 10:30 in the morning. I am going to get off here and get some rest. I am actually going to put on some makeup and maybe try to at least get my hair to turn under (my hair doesn't curl at all...typically poker straight).

Have you tried a CHI flat iron? You can use it to flip the ends out - my hair is stick straight, and I had actual CURLS stay in for an entire wedding!
