Planning to get rid of those pesky extra pounds

May 1, 2017 // Posted in Home, Life (Tags: , , , ) |  Comments Off on Planning to get rid of those pesky extra pounds

I don’t know why my weight seems to fluctuate, but the doctor said it is normal. Apparently as our day to day activities change with either the weather, work or cash flow, our weight seems to do so as well. So I seem to have gathered a few extra pounds that are just beginning to make my jeans a little bit uncomfortable.

To get back in shape, I could run for the exercise, but I tried that before and people have a bad habit of allowing their dogs to run loose in this area. I was almost mauled once and had to jump into a car that had stopped at a stop sign. The surprise on the drivers face was priceless, but I was more worried about the dogs chasing me at the time to actually find the humor in it. Made a new friend though.

I suppose I need to either go to a gym or buy some kind of equipment for my house. At the moment, if I want to go to the gym I can actually ride with a friend of mine when she goes. Unfortunately, she is not very reliable. I think if I’m going to do this regularly, I am going to go with the equipment.

Still not really sure if I want a tread mill or a weight machine. I am thinking that if I look on Craigslist, I might be able to get both. I have enough space for them so that might be the best idea. Buy them used and save money at the same time. And they are right here at my house when i want to use them.

Get Out the Blankets

Here it is only the end of September and it is already cold as hell. I didn’t want to turn on the heat, but I definitely had to get out the blankets last night. I wish my fucking fireplace was working right. I tried to light a fire last winter and the damper wouldn’t open right – the whole fucking house filled up with smoke.

I called a chimney sweep to come fix the damper and he said it would cost too much for my budget at the time. I guess with the weather turning chilly I had better call that guy back and have him come fix it. I don’t see any point of having a fireplace unless I can have a nice little fire a couple of night each week to relax in front of the TV and toast my toes near the flames of a good wood fire.

One Bag of Cheetos

Last week I bought a bag of Cheetos while shopping for groceries. I thought it might make a nice snack while watching TV or playing some computer games. I forgot how messy your fingers get while eating the Cheetos. I have orange cheesy stains on my fingers and on the joystick/controller. But they sure do taste good. I can’t believe I ate the whole bag in one night. That was not the plan. They were supposed to last for several snack attacks. Oh well, I guess I have to go back to the old standby, microwave popcorn with lots of melted butter.

Cheap Shit Furniture

The sofa I bought last year is in my living room. I don’t even hardly use my living room on a daily basis. Most days I am up out of bed, into the kitchen for coffee, the bathroom for getting dressed and out the door. I get home late and head to bed. I might sit on the sofa for an hour or two on a weekend before I’m out the door to meet friends or go clubbing.

So why is this sofa sagging and all flat and hard now? The cushions are just foam rubber covered with fabric. How hard is it to make a decent sofa cushion that doesn’t go flat and gets hard from just a little bit of use?

Do Not Ring My Bell

Sometimes I get totally fed up with people ringing my doorbell and trying to sell me shit. I don’t want anyone ringing my doorbell and I don’t want to buy anything that is being sold door to door. I even put a sign on the door that says “No Solicitors” and the mother fuckers STILL ring my bell.

This morning some jackass rang the bell at 9″00 and woke my ass up. I went to answer the door in hopes it was UPS or FED EX. But no, it was some jackass college kid with a clipboard. I asked him if he saw the sign about no solitiors?

He said, “I’m not selling anything. Are you the homeowner?”

I said, “Are you STUPID?!?!” and slammed the door in his fucking face.
