Abs, Wii and Jury Duty

Well, I got my Bender Ball in the mail Saturday. I did my first workout yesterday, and felt like it was doing little to nothing for my abs. I thought it was definitely the easiest way to acquire six-pack abs. I'm going for the feminine kind, not the ones you cover in Vaseline.

Around 6 p.m., I began to feel sick to my stomach. As Ty and I cooked dinner, I told him that I didn't know if I was hungry or nauseous, but I would eat and soon find out. I'm adventurous like that despite the fact Ty thought eating was a very bad idea. To my relief, it was hunger, but the pain I felt came on as my ab workout started to sink in. Somehow, this little green ball is actually a silent killer.

I then woke up in the middle of the night with a shooting pain in my side. I'm starting to wonder if I have internal bleeding from my workout. Now I know why I've never done ab workouts before. That shiz hurts.

In other news, Ty and I are in the rotation of caring for my parents' pets this week while they are staying somewhere that serves $6.50 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. We started the job Sunday night. There are numerous perks to this.

1. We have been given permission to eat whatever we want. The menu: tuna steaks for tonight, shrimp burgers for Wednesday and steaks and potatoes Thursday.

2. The stocked bar. We can make martinis, vodka drinks (I guess this would include martinis) and our old-faithful The Whiskey Drink. Parents, please do not be surprised, but you may be tapped out on Charter and Crown when you arrive home.

3. The Wii (and this is a big one). Looking for a way to pass the time, Ty and I powered up the Wii for a friendly game of tennis. About 20 games of tennis, bowling, baseball and golf later, we were serving, swinging and swatting like the pros. It was also 11 p.m. I think we played for roughly five hours. Did I mention my arms also are sore?

And as my final tidbit of information, I am now on-call for jury duty. I have to call the courthouse everyday at 6 p.m. If they say my name, I have to report to the courthouse at the assigned time the following day. If they don't say my name, I have to call back the next day at 6 p.m. I figure this process will continue until my name is said.

I'm a little disappointed that I wasn't invited to partake in the free food.

It's probably best though, since I'm starting my Bridesmaid Boot Camp juice diet soon.

The shrimp burgers from Southern Living?? I can't wait to get the report on those--they looked delicious!

I didn't want to seem TOO greedy. Also, I think I'm too old to throw a party when my parents go out of town.

Catherine, yes, they are the burgers from Southern Living. I can't wait to make them. Ty says he can't either so I'll stop talking about them!
