Did you vote today? If not, you have until like 8pm. So shake your booty.

I, unfortunately had to go to the local high school to vote... during school hours. In fact, when I got there, I had to enter through the cafeteria while they were changing classes. I seriously panicked. All of a sudden, I was fifteen - hunched shoulders, clutching books to my chest, nervously running my fingers through my hair, glancing all around while pretending not to.

Cripes. I hated high school.

My BF and I went to his former high school a few months ago to check out their craft fair (which was abysmal, by the way) and we were both way too uncomfortable to be there. It's funny how that stays with you... like the bricks they build high schools with have magical powers.

I digress. I voted. It was anti-climactic. I didn't even get an "I Voted" sticker. But whatever. I'm glad I went.

Today was my weigh-in with Calorie King. I used my home scale and apparently lost four pounds. This is totally impossible because I ate like a 500-lb man all week. We're going to yoga tonight, so I'll use the gym scale. I did lose an inch or so in my waist and hips though - and I'm a notch down on my belt.

I ate a delicious, healthy and filling lunch, so I feel good about that. Soup and a sammich. You really can't lose with that combo on a crappy day like today.

Speaking of weight loss, a member of EtsyNJ posted these adorable "Skinny Bitch" bracelets. What a cute idea.

As far as my current projects, I'm making a slew of baby cloud pillows for friends and family. I'm gonna toss a few up on my Etsy post haste.

Congrats on your weight loss! A notch down on the belt is a big deal!!

I must say, I love this blog entry, it made me snort and think "oh yeah, I know that one" a few times. Oh, and I can't wait to see the baby pillows.
