Not bad for a fat girl

Friday Freakout and Happy Blogday to BulgingButtons


first_birthday_cake_recipeMovers are scheduled to arrive in 25 hours. As I look around I wonder how we’ll make it happen, but I know that we will. The good news is that I don’t HAVE to be completely out of here until Monday, so after they take the big stuff I can still finish up any odds and ends on Sunday. Still, I WANT to be done on Saturday. Um, I mean tomorrow. Right now it just seems a little unlikely, but if I keep breathing maybe it will all come together.

Oh, and BulgingButtons is officially ONE YEAR OLD! Happy Birthday Blog! I’ve decided that a Blogday is something to celebrate, even if only by eating a Weight Watchers raspberry ice cream bar for breakfast (only 2 points). tumblr_l2d66aIow71qa27rco1_1280See, in my mind celebrations still equals food. Old habits and mindsets are hard to break. Maybe we should celebrate with a splash in the pool or a bike ride around the neighborhood? That would be more in keeping with the original BulgingButtons mission, I think.

As of this morning BulgingButtons has 999 followers. Perhaps the 1,000th follow will be our blogday present? That would be wonderful. Even better than a raspberry ice cream bar. Really.

Have a fabulous Friday and party like a rock star in honor of one year of BulgingButtons. If you have any whiz bang moving tips to make my life calmer, easier, or less crazy feel free to share. I always learn so much from you. Of course if you have any moving horror stories, feel free to share those too (I’m afraid they’re all too common). We will all read them and nod slowly or stifle a giggle, or gasp appropriately, and we will commiserate with you. Then we will secretly thank the powers that be that it happened to you and not us. No offense, of course. So bring on those moving stories,  I will try not to let them scare me too badly.

I'm a middle aged woman doing the things that middle aged women do and trying not to beat myself up. I'm living the life I choose with the man I love, the grown up son who impresses me all the time, and the most adorable pup ever rescued from the euthanasia list. We live in the heat of the Southwest, where I regularly sweat through my Lane Bryant bras.

  1. Happy Blogday! I don’t have any moving stories, just a thought to share about your count. You may find it flaky, but many believe that seeing double, triple and quadruple numbers is a sign of luck or positive change. They’re called “angel numbers”. Evidently 999 refers to closure in a good way with great things to come! Hope it all goes smoothly today.

    • Blossom, you have just won the newly minted “comment of the day” award! Love it. Thanks for the positive message (as always). I’m so glad you’re along for the ride.

  2. Happy Blogoversary! I’m sure your moving will run without problems! We once cleaned the carpet before we left an appartment. To keep the carpet floor clean, we wore such overshoes. As we finished our work I noticed that all shoes are packed in boxes and on the way to our new home. It was a little odd to drive a car with such thingies on the feet :o)

  3. We have surpassed 1,000!!!! Hooray! Now we can REALLY party!

  4. LABEL the contents of all boxes! Trust me, this will make your life so much easier at the other end. I hope your move goes swimmingly 🙂

  5. Happy Blogaversary, BB! Have so enjoyed playing with you over the last year and am glad that you got that house sold! My Blogday wish for you is that you fall madly in love with your wonderful body as she is and realize that you are the most gorgeous thing on this here planet. Love and acceptance = health and well-being in every case, sis. I’ll always tell you how lovely and amazing you are. XOXO

    • Aw Lizzy, you speak right to my heart. xoxoxo

      • Awww…and you do the same for me, sis. I mean it. YOU are a light in this world that can only be housed by an equally magnificent body. You can’t hold this light of yours in anything less than what you have, babe. Pullease know this. YOU are amazing. Your body is amazing no matter how bulging. No one likes hugging a skeleton. XOXO
