Today I tried on these pants. I know the tag might be a little hard to read...but the size says 12.
Now, to the lovely gentlemen that read this blog, I'm sure that probably doesn't mean much, but let me tell you, I haven't worn a size 12 pants since I was 12 years old.
My bootie fits into a size 12 as of today at Target. Ok, so maybe the sizes at certain stores are more generous than at other stores, but I'm not knocking it. Oh sure, they were tight, but I got them zipped so I was happy. (And they were NOT stretch pants, thank you very much!)
I know I've still got a long way to go, but considering at one time I was a size 22...I'm feeling pretty good!
54 lbs and counting....

Anyway...I waited...and sent out updates, and kept my fingers crossed. It barely sprinkled Friday night, and I held my breath. I woke up early Saturday morning to blue skies and sunshine! I sent out a note to the group that the meetup was still on, and I'd see everyone at the beach. We loaded up our gaggle and headed west.
And then it rained....I mean POURED on the way to the beach. Crap! Oh well, there was no turning back...I figured that I'd just stay in the car, and when I saw other members showing up, I'd send them on their way. There would be no beach fun for our pups....
Well, little did I know that Someone upstairs was playing tricks with me. The beach we were going to (Del Mar) is about 12 miles from our house. When we were about 3 miles away, and coming down a hill to where I could see the coastline, all I saw was a gorgeous blue sky and big, puffy white clouds. There was no rain in site! Yahoo!

Bob and I have been friends since the late 70's....yes folks, I am THAT old! Ha ha! Bob and I graduated from high school together in 1982, and have remained friends ever since. There were some long periods of time when we weren't in touch, but Bob is the kind of friend that is very easy to rekindle a friendship with. He is a fun loving, big hearted guy, with an infectious smile and a hearty laugh. Bob has been battling cancer for quite a while now, and his health has been a roller coaster ride for him and his family. It isn't easy, yet he manages to somehow have a smile on his face and a joke or two to tell each time I see him. And don't even get me started on how he loves to flirt with the nurses...that's a whole other story in itself!
It was great visiting with him today, and I am hoping that next time we visit with him it will be at home. Our fingers and paws are crossed that his health improves, and he can finally take me out on that date he's been promising me since high school. (Hubby would totally understand!) Do me a favor, and say a little prayer for him if you are so inclined, won't you?

I have to go out and hang out with some cool friends....
I have to get chin rubs from total strangers...
I have to look lovingly at older women....
I have to shake hands with kind gentlemen....
I have to smile from ear to ear when someone rubs just the right spot behind my ear....
I have to sit through gentle head rubs....
I have to have quiet conversations....
and I have to endure a back massage...
Ah, yes, it's a ruff job, and I'm just the pup to do it!

Just a quick FYI - my regular Tuesday "Crush of the Week" posts are going to go on hiatus for a while...basically until I feel like posting about them again...no one seemed to be too interested in joining along so I'll just stick them out there kind of randomly.
