Poor Fattie

My poor cat Harmony can no longer fit through the cat doors to the basement. Despite all the diets she has been on in her life she is still fat. I just don't know what to do to help her to lose weight. She only eats diet cat food. Occasionally, on rare occasions she'll have a little tuna or turkey, but that is very rare. So John and I have to buy dog doors now and install them into the door, so my kitty can get through. *Sigh*
Who's that waddlin' down the street
It's just me 'cause I love to eat
Fudge and Twinkies and deviled ham
Who's real flabby? Yes, I am!
Every picture of me's
Gotta be an aerial view
Now my doctor tells me
There's just one thing left to do

Grapefruit Diet (Diet!)
Throw out the pizza and beer
Grapefruit Diet (Diet!)
Oh, get those jelly donuts out of here
Grapefruit Diet (Diet!)
Might seem a little severe
Grapefruit Diet (Diet!)
I'm gettin' tired of my big fat rear
Blow, fatty!

Well, I used to live on chocolate sauce
Made sumo wrestlers look like Kate Moss
Walked down an alley and I got stuck
I got more rolls than a pastry truck
When I'm all done eating
I eat a little more
When I leave a room
First I gotta grease the door

Grapefruit Diet (Diet!)
Can't have another eclair
Grapefruit Diet (Diet!)
I gotta decrease my derriere

I'm on a Grapefruit Diet
I'm on a Grapefruit Diet
I'm on a Grapefruit Diet

No more pie now
No more creme brulee
Lay off the gravy
And souffle
No french fri-yi-yies now
No ice cream parfait
Mr. Cheese Nacho
Stay away

Oh I think I'd sell my soul
For a triple patty melt
But I need a boomerang
When I put on my belt

Grapefruit Diet (Diet!)
Lay off the 3 Musketeers
Grapefruit Diet (Diet!)
Until my big booty disappears
Grapefruit Diet (Diet!)
Eat 'em till they're comin' out of my ears
Grapefruit Diet (Diet!)
'Cause I haven't seen my feet in years

I'm on a Grapefruit Diet
I'm on a Grapefruit Diet
I'm on a Grapefruit Diet

I think I'm about ready for a Quarter Pounder with extra cheese
I need a side of onion rings
And oh yah, don't forget to Super-Size that

Baby Boo at 13 weeks

I had a scare yesterday evening that carried over into today. I was bleeding, and I didn't know why. John tried to reassure me that everything was okay, but I know that bleeding isn't a good sign when you are pregnant. Thankfully, I was able to get an appointment for today to find out the cause to my bleeding. I wasn't having any cramps, so that was good. The doctor did an ultrasound, and I was told I have a low lying placenta. It is partially covering my cervix which can cause bleeding. I just have to be a little more careful, but I should be fine. As my uterus grows my placenta will move up and away from my cervix. I'm fine now, and I was so happy to see my little baby bouncing around having a grand old time in my uterus.

Here is a picture of Baby Boo at 13 weeks. Baby Boo is looking forward waving at the camera.

Here is another picture of Baby Boo...it's a profile shot with its leg kicking up into the air. Please don't be alarmed by the alien looking baby....ultrasound can give a baby that kind of appearance because it also detects the skeleton.

Crocodile Tears

I woke up this morning to sad news that Steve Irwin from The Crocodile Hunter was killed by a stingray off the Australian Barrier Reef. He was 44 years old, and the father of two young children. This man is notorious for getting too close to very dangerous animals, but the stingray is generally a timid creature. He just got that one in a million shot....he was swimming over the stingray, and its barbed tail popped up and pierced Steve in the heart. A stingray's sting is painful but not deadly unless you are pierced in the heart or chest. Unfortunately for Steve, he encountered such a sting. This man cared more about animals than most people. He went out of his way and put himself at harm to perserve the lives of creatures...he gave them a voice so desperately needed to be heard. He was one of the best conservationist around, and he will be forever missed.
