Ten Things Thursday!!

1.  Jersey Boys was great!  I love that show.  The Frankie Valli actor wasn't as good as the first performance I saw, but the show is so good and the music is fun.  The actual Frankie Valli is coming to town in September and if I wasn't going to be in Chicago, I would totally go!

2.  As far as recovery goes, another night in my bed and it went better than the previous night.  I didn't even try to move, I got in bed about midnight (late because of the show) and laid down on my back.  Took longer than normal to fall asleep, but it did and my back is really thanking me for getting out of that chair.  During the show, I would have these sensations of a needle poking me in different incision sites.  It actually kind of hurt.  I have the feeling of little needle pokes all the time, but they don't really hurt.  Last night they did.  But that seems to have passed, thank goodness.

3.  I dropped another 4 tenths of a pound yesterday, so that's good.  Certainly the right direction.  I'm really looking forward to starting Paleo.  I don't know why I can't tell myself just to eat better, but that just doesn't seem to work, at least for any length of time.

4.  I'm excited to take a shower and wash my hair tonight.  Plus, I get to watch the Rangers!  They were off Monday and I couldn't watch them last night so I'm having a bit of withdrawal this week.  I'm new to liking baseball.  I had really avoided becoming a fan because I know what kind of fan I am and there are a ton of baseball games.  Two trips to the World Series and a team of adorable characters put me over the edge.  I'm hooked.

5.  Does anyone use their iPhone internationally?  Do you have any issues with iMessage to other countries?  I'm hoping to use mine to communicate with my friends at home while I'm on my trip, but I don't want to get stuck with extra charges.  My understanding is if you use iMessage (particularly through WiFi) it is free.  Thoughts?

6.  I'm tired of ginormo surgical bra.  It is comfortable, so I'm sticking with it until I heal, but so many of my shirts are cut in a way you can see it, so it gets hard to dress.  Plus a lot of my clothes are too tight right now.

7.  I have a frozen dinner for lunch today that I don't want to eat.  But since I'm going to try and give up processed food with Paleo (or at least limit it), I keep telling myself it is the last one, so just do it.  Plus we are having our company June birthday celebration and there will be cakeballs.  I know I will eat one of those suckers, so frozen dinner it needs to be!

8.  I'm going to the horse races with some friends tomorrow night.  That will be fun!  We did it a couple of years ago and had such a great time.  I'm really looking forward to doing it again.

9.  Is anyone watching The Catalina?  That show is an absolute train wreck, yet I watch.  Ugh.

10.  43 Days!!

Hugs!

My girls are hooked on the races! We watched the Derby and that was it...they had to watch Belmont and Preakness. Had their favorites all picked out.
On our way back from Myrtle Beach next year we are stopping at Churchill Downs for a day. They're already talking about hat shopping!
