Randoms – Time is FLYING.

-The Wifening is still going... Just not as often. I made Chicken Tikka Masala and basmati rice with lentils last week... So there’s that... I plan on picking this back up more frequently again...

-We've already done 3 archery tournaments this year...USA Archery California State indoor, NFAA California State indoor, and The Vegas tournament again. I've been shooting well below my normal performance, but I still was able to take 4th place in my flight in Vegas... Won a whole $90! Big time! I got 6th in the USAA tournament... No idea what the results of the NFAA one are yet... Next we are going to have Outdoor tournaments. I’m pretty nervous about that because I haven't done any outdoor yet. I don't know why I let myself get nervous... It's like I keep saying - "It's not like this is my job...I don’t NEED to win." It’s really just for fun. And bragging rights...

-At the first tournament, I discovered something that was horrifying at the restaurant we went to for dinner one night... You know those dolls that people make out of pantyhose? No? That's fine. All you need to know is that they had a life-size one. And I am still afraid that it is following me... 
She's right behind me, isn't she?

I really kind of thought she was going to grab me when I walked by... And when we were walking back to the hotel, I kept asking J if she was following us. He said that she was already waiting for us in our room. Love how he thinks he's soooo funny. And how he thinks I wouldn't TOTALLY use him as a human shield if that was the case...

-My bestie had the cutest little baby girl in December. I still can't get over how cute and perfect she is... But then, I don't have to listen to the crying at all hours... Or change the poopy diapers. Still - she's adorable and she recently started smiling... ON PURPOSE. And it melts my heart...

-I am a REALLY bad sympathetic yawner. I can't watch someone yawn without yawning too. It's so bad that I can't even hear the word without yawning. (Or type/read it apparently based on how many times I've yawned while typing this...) So pretty much every day since she was born, I have gotten a texted picture of the baby yawning... And it gets me EVERY TIME.

-I chopped my hair off again... For charity. It was getting out-of-control long and even though it's annoying to have to actually "do" my hair in the morning, it feels pretty nice... and someone will get my hair that needs it more than I do...

-J and I fell down the rabbit hole of the "Blue and Black" or "White and Gold" dress! I questioned everything I knew about everything when I asked J what color the dress was - fully expecting him to agree with me - and he came back with "White and gold" when it is CLEARLY blue and black. He did start seeing it as blue and black later and then accused me of being in on a big hoax and messing with him... I realize that this is the stupidest thing to get obsessed with, but it has taken over my mind WAY too much! It was even the topic of much discussion at work... I understand the scientific explanations of why people see the dress differently, but that doesn't mean I can wrap my brain around how people can be SO sure that it's a completely different color than it actually is! WHY DON'T EYES MAKE SENSE?!?!
Found on the Google.... Not my picture. But SO OBVIOUSLY BLUE AND BLACK!!!!

-One of my favorite local Italian restaurants closed. With no warning. We went there LAST WEEK for dinner... We tried to go again last night and pulled up to an empty building. And I almost cried. I was SO looking forward to their sizzling spicy sausage and pepper plate (which I refer to as "fajitas that taste of Italy") and giardiniera (aka everything I usually hate, but apparently when it's all chopped up and mixed together, it's delicious)! And I was left with a sad drive back home with NOTHING. They have another location, but it's not nearly close enough to be even remotely convenient and they don't have everything on their menu that this one had...

-The fact that those two things were the biggest troubles in my life lately tells me that things are pretty sweet right now :-)

-I've become "re-infatuated" with red velvet. I love me some red food coloring, and I think that's why I keep trying to really like red velvet. This time in the form of special edition Hostess Cupcakes and Oreos...The cupcakes just take like Hostess cupcakes... Not really different. But the Oreos have a cream cheese filling that is surprisingly tasty. I don't think I would ever buy either again... Because of the whole "used to be overweight" thing and never wanting to go back to that... But they are yummy enough to want to keep all to myself...

-We were equally horrified and intrigued by the new Buttery Jack from Jack in the Box. It's a burger... With herbed butter melted on it. On a fancy bun. J tried the bacon one, I had the classic one. And while they were not disgusting - I will never order another one ever again. One was MORE than enough.

-We had a little "health issue" with our remaining cat, Emily. Apparently she got a bladder infection and in the time that it took for me to get her to the vet and the antibiotics to do their job, I became convinced that my entire house smelled like pee because she kept looking like she was trying to go and not being able to. Everywhere she went. While I felt bad for her, it led to several sleepless nights of quickly moving her off the bed when I saw her squat. I just knew that the one time she was finally able to actually pee was going to be ON THE BED. And that would suck. Luckily, she never peed on the bed and she is fine now, but I had to scrub every floor in my house to make the smell go away.

This also led to me assuming she was dying all day leading up to her vet appointment and then telling J that when she is gone, I'm pretty sure I don't ever want pets again because it's just too hard! He said that we don't have to get more pets right away, but that he thinks I'll get over it and want dogs. And he's probably right... But watching them get old SUCKS. I don't know if I can do it over and over again...
Look at that tiny furry tragedy-waiting-to-happen all snuggled on me when I was home sick...

-On a lighter note! I got obsessed with (also horrified by) this GIF of a snail eating. Did you know they have mouths?!?!?! I mean, I guess I never really thought about how they must have mouths because how else would they eat? But seriously... THEY HAVE MOUTHS!!!! It really freaked me out. Now I like snails even less. "Hello, little slimy stuff-of-nightmares..." <<shudder>>

-We took a 17-year-old girl that we shoot with at archery all the time out to shoot guns with us. Because her parents trusted us as "RESPONSIBLE ADULTS." When did that happen??
Just a totally normal Saturday afternoon....

-I got a new favorite shirt... Because "Go SPORTS!"
Pretty accurately sums up my knowledge of all things "sports" 


Not much else too fascinating has been going on... Other than binge-watching Supernatural... How am I so late to the Supernatural party? Such an entertaining show and SO many seasons to watch! Plus! It's still on the air, so there will be even MORE to watch! Yay!
