Once again, the scale makes no sense to me. I only exercised one day this past week, and after coming home from work yesterday, I gave into temptation and had Mexican food (carne asada tacos, plus some rice & refried beans). I also had a bowl of cereal close to bedtime. Yet despite these things which would logically make the scale go up, I weigh less today than I've weighed the past two days, and I'm back to what I weighed on Tuesday. Weird. I'll take it: it just doesn't make sense.
I did not feel like going out or doing anything last night, so I stayed home and watched TV. . . . something I rarely do (now that I'm not living with SL anymore). I watched the movie 13 Going on 30 with Jennifer Garner, which was predictable, but cute; then I caught the tail-end of Hitch--I love Will Smith.
I was very lazy. And I have to admit, it was nice. I didn't even read or surf the internet--just flat watched TV. Didn't even talk on the phone, which is almost unheard-of for me.
These happy-ending movies did make a bit depressed. . . . especially 13 Going on 30. We can't all go back to an earlier time in our lives and make love turn out right, as I have learned over the past few months with J. Ah well. It was still nice to relax and veg out.
Today a new mattress & box spring are being delivered; I bought them after work yesterday. (My mom is coming back on Wednesday, and I didn't want to continue to sleep on the air mattress once she returns. . . it has killed my back.) KC is coming over to help me assemble my new Ikea bedroom furniture. So my bedroom will be totally changed by the time I go to bed tonight. I'm also going to go to Bed, Bath, & Beyond today to buy a mattress pad and perhaps a new comforter or coverlet for the new bed. Good times.

KC and I are going out tonight, too. I always really liked the bar we are going to back in 2000 when we lived in Phx before; it'll be interesting to see how the crowd there is changed and how I feel about it now that I'm 7 years older.
I scored free tickets to the D-backs game on Sunday from someone through work. They're good seats: in the area right behind the dugout, about halfway back. The team has been playing well, so it should be fun. This will be only the second game I've been to this season. . . . both with free tickets. LOL
Gotta go hit the treadmill before my delivery guy arrives.
