It's a Dog Eat Carrot World

It turns out I am not any braver in 2011 than I was in 2010.  Pretty Little Liars starts its new season tonight and the previews already have me wetting the couch (because I'm too scared to get up and brave the bathroom.  When I walk in, the door makes the shower curtain move, convincing me somebody is in the shower waiting to kill me at my most vulnerable toilet moment).  On the other hand, I really, really want to know what happens this season.  What is a scaredy-pants to do?

Getting braver was not one of my New Years Resolutions.  I didn't exactly make any specific resolutions.  Weight-wise I just try year-round not to get too... well, round.  However, I am resolving to help my dog lose a couple Elle Bees.  She is being fed the "healthy weight" version of her food (I'm sure it's delicious!), I'm putting her on the treadmill daily (um, it's COLD outside.  When it gets above freezing again maybe we'll venture down the road), and I'm brushing at least a pound of fur off her daily (wouldn't it rock if we could shave a pound of hair off our legs daily?!)*

So that's the resolution I made.  To better someone who's not me.  Are any of you forcing a resolution on somebody?  It's fun!  Allie will be wearing her skinny jeans in no time:


*On second thought, that probably wouldn't rock as much as I originally thought.  That's actually very gross.

Okay, I can be so... un-ladylike. The first thought that popped into my mind after reading this was, "Dude! I would so totally love to get a treadmill so I can exercise my German Shepherd!" And I loved how you said, "... well, round." I love the way you write, it is as if I'm listening to you instead of reading. It really makes for a captivating read!

First, my dog doesn't need to lose weight. He's just super hyper and I would love to put his crazy butt on a treadmill just to wear him out!

Second, I'm sure your dog's healthy food tastes FANFRIGGINTASTIC. (*insert awkward smile, really meaning "I hope I'm right but who cares, it's food!")

Third, someone posted on my facebook the other day: "Every year people make promises to change. Maybe this year you can promise to be who you are."

Here's my Christian input: God made you special, with a plan in His mind. I think health is always important and treating your body right is GOOD. But don't lose sight of your beauty. God made you just the way you are. And He thinks you're beautiful.

Jules. You and me both. I'm not the one to tell you to suck it up. I want to YELL - NO, DON'T WATCH. RUN THE OTHER WAY. THEY WILL COME GET YOU. IT MIGHT BE TOO LATE ALREADY. iF YOU LEAVE NOW, YOU MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO SAVE YOURSELF, BUT ATLEAST YOU TAKE THEM OFF THE TRACK OF YOUR CHILDREN. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, RUN, NOW. GO - GO - GO!!!!

Sorry for being so dramatic, it's just that I was watching the New Karate Kid the other day, and I seriously wanted to die, rather than watch that kid get beat up one more time. It's too much to bear. Not to mention the fact that now I think those crazy Kung Fu kats are after me.
