Most of the filthy love bugs have gone away. I can sit in my car in front of the school and not have them swarm in through my open windows. Their departure signifies that summer is over. Yay!
I weighed my tits this morning. 7.4 pounds. Now, that's not alot in the scheme of things, but it is quite a bit to have flopping off of your chest every.single.day. You've heard of the pencil test? Where if you can put a pencil under your boobs and it doesn't fall then they are too saggy? I could easily confine Chi Chi under mine. I don't necessarily want to make them much smaller. Just get them hoisted up. When I spoke with a doctor about it awhile back, he told me that they would be as perky as they were when I was 18. When I told him that they: had never been perky that kind of stumped him. Depending on my weight, I go between a 34DDD and a 38DDD (right now I'm at the 36) and that is too damn much. I'll get them reduced and lifted someday. I'm just not quite ready to part with them.
See that green blanket that Chi Chi is on? Chi Chi lived with my Grandma for a few years and Grandma loved her immensely and made her that quilt. I think part of the reason that I'm dreading Chi Chi's demise is that having her around is kind of like having Grandma around too. One day last week she didn't eat for 24 hours and I was freaking out. She is usually not one to turn her nose at any food. She has since found her appetite. Maybe she just liked having me and Sweety coo at her and try to hand feed her treats. The other night, (while playing a video game with Chi Chi in my lap after everyone else was in bed) I was reminded of one of the first times that I'd met her. I was 20 years old and the exhusband and I were at his friend's house (Chi Chi's original owner). Everybody decided that they wanted to go to the casino and then realized that I couldn't because I wasn't 21 yet. So I stayed at the friend's house and played SuperMarioKart on the Nintendo until my thumbs had blisters on them while Chi Chi snoozed in my lap. If she'd have told me 11 years ago that she would be retiring in Florida with me and a whole new family, I'd have never believed her.
It is crazy how things can turn out.
