Uneaten Donuts

14 Jul

Hey guys!  Sorry I haven’t posted.  I’ve actually been swamped and haven’t been able to.  Hope you’ll forgive me!  🙂

Monday night was awesome!  I had a date with my Dad and went to a free early screening of Inception.  We both loved it and were on the edge of our seats the whole time.  We were both pretty confused to begin with but as the story unfolded everything started to make sense.  It was a lot of fun for my dad and I to discuss it afterwards!  If you like movies that make you think…this is the movie for you!

Yesterday was a little crazy.  During work I had an appointment with the dermatologist.  I love my dermatologist because I think she is really good and she remembers me.  I’ve been going to her since early high school, maybe even middle school.  I can’t remember.  For a little background: my brother had melanoma and my mom had basil cell carcinoma (a form of skin cancer) around 2 years ago.  I started being really careful with my skin after I started going to the dermatologist and realizing that I am at a high risk.  I never tanned but I did get sunburnt pretty often.  I’m happy to report now that my Dermatologist says I have a perfect complexion and beautiful skin.  It is a lot of hard work and I get a lot of flack for how paranoid I get about being in the sun.  I just don’t want to risk it.  It isn’t worth it to me.

I’ve had over 20 moles removed and 4 cysts.  Several moles have come back as irregular and one came back as pre-cancerous.  I cannot stress the importance of taking care of your skin!  I will happily have all my weird moles removed to make sure my skin stays healthy.  Having moles removed is also a good reason not to get sunburnt or tan.  If I did, my white scars all over my arms would make me polka dotted!

Anyway, yesterday I had 2 warts frozen .  I had no idea they were warts.  I just asked what the bumps were.  Before I could say anything she froze them and they hurt like the dickens.  I’d take a mole removal any day!

I also had one mole removed.  I had been watching it because I didn’t like how it had grown bigger but as soon as the Dr. saw it, she immediately wanted it off.  That makes me nervous!  Here’s hoping that the lab finds nothing wrong with it.  It had a black dot in it.  😦  I asked about my past reactions to bandaid adhesives so the Dr. put gauze and medical tape on my leg instead of the standard bandaid.  I felt hardcore!

The wound is actually only about the size of a pencil eraser.  So this was a little more than I needed so it freaked people out!

Once back in the office, I got an email from my mom asking for a dinner date.  Since I had no plans, we made a date to go to a new restaurant in town, The Pita Pit.  I knew I could get something healthy there.  I got a whole wheat pita with turkey lettuce, tomato and a little bit of cheddar cheese.  They put the turkey on the stove first and it was soooooo good!  Mom got the babaganoush and could barely taste it.  But we both enjoyed it and had a good time talking.  Thanks Mom for dinner!

Before dinner though, I stopped by the new Krispy Kreme that opened in town today.  Now, I know donuts are not healthy.  I’m not claiming that.  But I did want to be part of the opening day action.  I’m sure glad I did.  It was fun!

Hot DonutsHot Donuts getting glazed!!!  I was salivating.

I decided to try two different donuts and got the Cinnamon Twist and the New York Style Cheesecake.  I did not like the cheesecake.  It had a lemon-ish filling that I didn’t care for and the cinnamon twist was nothing special.  Next time I need to stick with the original.  Now, I rarely have donuts because I don’t like the feeling I get afterwards.  I know they are terrible for me so I just don’t have much of an appetite for them.  I’m proud of the fact that I threw these away instead of eating all the extra calories in something that I didn’t love.

You’ll also notice I haven’t mentioned exercising.  Because I haven’t since last Thursday.  Things have been so crazy around here and my sleeping schedule has been off so I haven’t been able to get up in the morning and go.  And I also haven’t had time to work out in the evening with the movie and everything.  Now I have these warts and mole to deal with so I’m not sure what I can do to work out without irritating either one.  Hopefully tomorrow I can get back on the bandwagon.  I’m definitely missing my morning sweats session!

This morning it took me forever to dress the wound on my leg.  I underestimated and have to rush to get ready and out the door.   Hopefully it will be a wonderful Wednesday!

Do you have any scary skin stories? I’d love to know I’m not the only one who is so paranoid of the sun.  Plus, it’d be nice to show the hubs that I’m not soooooo weird!

Redemption

Evening!

Yesterday evening was too much fun!  The hubs and Matt headed to Noblesville, IN to see a Dave Matthews Band concert so Dad came over and we did pizza and a movie.  Neither of us had seen Princess and the Frog so we decided to give it a go.  Despite some skipping for a dirty/scratched DVD, we really enjoyed the story.  I’m not sure it is very kid friendly though.  Some of the characters were terrifying!  We ended the evening on a tasty note with homemade ice cream sandwiches.  YUM!!!

Today was a little rough in many respects.  I had planned on working out this morning but after staying up late waiting for the boys to get home (they went to a concert over 2 hrs away and they had over 2 hr rain delay) and getting woken up by them around 5 when they did get home, I’m exhausted!

Once up, I attempted to make cinnamon rolls for the boys with what I had in the kitchen.  No preparation = fail!  I left them out for them anyway and got ready.

I went to a memorial service for a dear friend today who passed away in a tragic car accident.  After hearing his son speak and how pained he was that he hadn’t said “I love you” enough…PLEASE tell your loved one you love them NOW!!!

(I’ll wait while you make that phone call or find that special person on the other side of the house/apt.)

After that, I came home and we made our trek back to Joe’s Crab Shack.  After the hubs’ birthday fiasco there, a friend from high school read this blog and contacted a manager to set things right.  They offered us a $75 food credit to come back and be a “VIP” with manager’s taking care of us.  So we decided to go there today with our friends Matt and Kyle.

The hubs came away with a crab coma and feeling like Joe’s had redeemed themselves with the service we got today.  Matt and the hubs got a classic steampot that included two different types of crab legs along with andouille sausage, corn on the cob and shrimp.  He loved it!  I got a grilled chicken club without the bacon.  I have no time in my life for bacon.  When I think of what it is and the greasy-ness of it, I get really disgusted.  Actually, beyond chicken and turkey sandwich meat, I rarely eat meat.  It just doesn’t appeal to me.

Anyway, the hubs was very happy which made me super happy.  Thanks Daniel (friend) and Susie/Suzie (General Manager) for treating us so well and helping make our experience at the restaurant so much better!  Note: Susie was so nice!  She came over and personally apologized and thanked us for coming back to try it again.  It felt very sincere so I really appreciated that!

Our friend Melanie from college came and hung out at our house and then we headed to a late dinner.  I wasn’t even hungry but I did manager to scarf down a slice of pizza.

With the exception of the memorial service, today has been really fun.  I’ve really enjoyed hanging out with Melanie and Matt.  Now it is off to bed since we have an early church service tomorrow!
