I think I amost died last night...

I have felt SO cooped up lately! I just don't have enough opportunities to exercise lately with all the holiday business and cold weather. So last night I declared I was taking a walk and headed out the door. On the way back home I went down a street I don't usually go down to make my walk a little longer. Well, when I turned the corner I saw two dogs in a front yard. I was a little suspicious but I went on the other side of the street and got on the sidewalk. I squinted hard to see where they were and saw one dog, he looked at me but didn't do anything. I couldn't put my eyes on that second dog, then, out of nowhere, he was about three feet from barking like I'd just entered his private territory. My instincts kicked in and I shouted NO as loud as I could. Thanks for teaching me to yell at stray dogs Dad! However, he continued to bark and growl and snap at me. By now I was thinking about what I would do if he tried to bite me. I looked around to see if anyone was outside and kept my limbs as close to my body as I could. I decided if he attacked me I would scream and roll up in a ball so I could protect my head and vital organs. As soon as I decided what to do his barking slowed a little and a couple of seconds later he trotted off, obviously satisfied he had scared me to death. I tentatively walked a few steps to see if he was going to follow me and he didn't. A guy was walking down his drive way as I turned to walk off, I think he was coming to see what all the racket was about. Anyway I walked the rest of the way home sneaking peeks over my shoulder to make sure no mean dogs were following me home!

Maybe my stomach will get flatter

I went and had MORE allergy testing done yesterday, it was a food allergy test. Here is a list of all the dreck I'm allergic to:

4 (the highest level):
Lamb I'm so disappointed we eat Lamb at least 2 times a weeks (NOT)
Mushrooms fine, I hate them anyway
Broccoli OK I really like broccoli

Rye, no dark brown bread for me

Turkey Meat
Brazil nut
English Walnut

So, I'm supposed to not eat these foods for a month. Chocolate. Coffee. Cinnamon. I'm totally mourning Starbucks right now. No Cinnamon Dolce Latte. So, my request is that if you're going to be with me over the Holidays, make me something for dessert I can actually eat.

I am totally going to become one of "those people" that are all "So, what kind of nuts are in this cake?" "Are those mushrooms" "Is that cinnamon sprinkled on those cookies?" and "did lamb touch that chicken?"

That my daughter's Principal had to call me this morning because she was out of dress code. Mainly Incredible because I work in the same district and know the dress code.

That I walk into the girls' bathroom by my gym this morning and there were two turds on the bathroom floor. One was in one stall and one was in the other, flat, because it had been stepped on.

That I tooted tonight and Meredith thought it was the dogs whining.

That I will be an aunt in less than a month (Meredith hopes).
