birthdays, belly dancing, and kittycats

Leave a comment

it’s T’s birthday today. i sent him a text. i didn’t get a response, not that i was expecting one. i just wanted him to know that i remembered his birthday and wanted to wish him a happy one. buried in my heart is the hope that he’ll be in my life again. but right now, i’ll settle for not thinking about him every night.

i went to my first belly dancing lesson today. you’d think that 12 years of ballet would have helped me out a bit, but i had to face it: i was fat. i am so out of shape it’s discouraging. last fall, in four months, i lost 25 pounds (my 6-month goal was 45 pounds). but earlier this year, i started gaining weight and recently put 10 pounds back on. the belly dancing lesson has motivated me to get fit again, so i went to the gym afterwards in the hope of getting back on track to losing the weight. if i can do 25 pounds in four months, i can do anything!

the belly dancing also made me yearn for my breast reduction surgery. it’s pretty hard to do some of the moves with big breasts! the surgery waitlist is about two years, but at least i’m finally on the list (my consultation was back in march). it will definitely contribute to my happiness.

speaking of which, i spent all last night reading online about taking care of a kitten. after belly dancing, i stopped at a pet store to scope out some of the goods. then after the gym, i went straight to petcetera to check out their closing down sale. i got two scratching posts and a kittybed (oh so cute!!) for $30. they didn’t have much left, so i’ll have to get the other things at another store. i’m so excited. i don’t think i can wait until september to get my kittycats!

I had four cats - now I have six but still no one to talk to, LOL. So, I write this blog to entertain me, myself, and I... and perhaps you.

got any feedback?
