GUESS WHO took this stunning picture!! Or is it ?? Let's compromise and say?!
Congratulate me! I got out of Bet Shemesh!! Not only that, but I got out with a group of girlfriends from one of my 87 Zumba classes! We rented a sailboat and set sail out of the port of Ashdod into the beautiful deep blue Mediterranean. We enjoyed a gorgeous sunset, gourmet treats, and of course, lots of great music.
I tell you, it was just magical. Swinging lazily on the hammock as the boat gently rode the waves, basking in the sun and feeling the warm ocean breeze - it was heavenly.
We went out for dinner after our sunset cruise, which was kind of a bummer for me because I'm officially impossible to go out to eat with. I couldn't find anything on the menu that would work for my keto kraziness diet! Nothing!
Except for the fish dishes, and I was too cheap to spend almost $30 on a little plate of fish. If I'm spending that kind of money, it's going to be on a new pair of Nike training pants. So I ordered a salad and had them switch the dressing and make a few other "minor" changes.
All in all, it was a fantastic night.
I started feeling strong pains developing in my throat in the middle of the night. By the morning I could barely swallow from the pain, but I still went to the gym. Later that afternoon, oh boy. The fever began, along with terrible swollen lymph nodes in my throat. Yet, strangely enough, I still considered going to Zumba at night.
So what's the point, you're probably thinking. Well, David made me realize that in every bad there's always good to be found.
How did he do this? By pointing out a simple fact: "At least you can't talk, right?" I immediately hobbled in pain, hunched over, to my computer so I could write him off. But really, his insight astounded me.
It's true. In every bad, there is good to be found.
Now I'm not the Arizal (shocking, right?) so I can't tell you everything about your past incarnations and what you're doing here to begin with, but I realized a few interesting things:
1) That's right. I can't talk. If I were my husband and kids, I'd consider that a definite PLUS. There was so much less fighting, I couldn't believe it.
2) Peanut allergies can be a positive thing. Did you know that non-organic peanuts used for peanut butter are from the lowest grade of peanuts? They have aflatoxin, and extremely toxic carcinogen that has been linked to cancer, lo aleinu. Organic peanuts are of higher quality and shouldn't have this.
3) The technician came to fix my washing meachine. He gave it a wack with a hammer, and good as new. I'm being absolutely serious. He really wacked the bottom of it with a hammer. That was after I made him come back because he wouldn't wait for me to get home because he came two hours earlier than he was supposed to. Because the first time he left he emptied out the pipes behind the washing machine. After all this back and forth, the machine stopped working again last night. So I'm without a washing machine again. What's the good in this? I get a temporary break from laundry so I have more time to go to the gym.
OMG. I ate too much sugar free halva and my intestines are making all kinds of crazy noises.
What's the good thing in eating too much halva? That it was yummy!
It's almost one in the morning and I keep falling asleep. Again. Hopefully I'll have something intelligible to post later on today. Until then, have a good night! Or morning!
