What a weekend

1) I got through sorting and editing my pictures on Jason's laptop and was just going to transfer them to my pc when I noticed that the colors on my old monitor looked incredibly different than the colors on Jason's lcd screen. Not being sure which was correct, I'm holding onto the pictures so I can make sure that others will see them the way I want them to be seen.

2) My dad decided he wanted to give his family gifts before he dies so he can see us enjoy them. After that thought, he showed up at my house with a new computer. I love it, but it's a bittersweet gift.

3) Alex had her three month birthday this Saturday, which also corresponded with my first trip back to Weight Watcher's since having her. I had to rejoin since it's been a year, so I'll be starting all over again. Expect to see more WW posts every week documenting my journey.

4) For mother's day, Jason shows up with a new 19 inch lcd flatscreen to go with the new computer. I played with settings all day yesterday, so hopefully the pictures will look decent and I can post them soon.

5) This morning I get my teeth cleaned and I'm not looking forward to it. Pregnancy hormones fuck with your teeth and gums somehow, so this will likely be painful.

I have my cleaning tomorrow. I'm not looking forward to it since I have a big raw spot on my gum. I have sensitive gums. He's going to give me crap because I don't floss enough but I'm flossing a lot more than I used to.

When I was pregnant they were horrible.

Yeah pregnancy is hard on them for sure. How did your cleaning go?

The best way to do it is to find something that is purely red, take a picture of it, then adjust your settings accordingly through your monitor's gamma settings.

I have to keep reminding myself that most people don't have their screens as bright as I do...

I actually found this software called Natural Color that seems to have done the trick.

I look forward to seeing your pics...I hope you can figure out the right colour settings soon enough :)

I'm tempted to do the WW thing again myself...just have to find my old points book...I can't afford to reregister again, plus I don't have the time to go to meetings like I once did. We can lose weight together, woot! :D

That was really sweet of your father...and hearing that his time here may not be long makes me sad for you...I know what it's like to have lost a father and I wouldn't wish that on anyone. You know who to turn to when you're going through your hard times *huggles*

Yeah, about the teeth thing...it won't be painful persay, but don't get freaked out if there's a lot of blood coming from your gums...it's normal. Get yourself some anbesol or another gum numbing liquid, that should do the trick ;)

I gave up on adjusting the pics... I just wanted to get them up finally :P

I'll be posting weekly updates about my progress... we can start our own little online meeting :P

Wow.... it seems like the last time I replied to one of your posts, Alex was still a remora....

Oh shit, she was!

I hate monitors, I hate WW and I hate the dentist!
I can't wait until I am skinny again (which I never was) and I have no teeth!
I guess I'm stuck with monitors though.

I gotta get to the beach.

You're back! I posted pictures go look :P

So what's been going on with you?
May. 19th, 2006 01:51 pm (UTC)
Well, I'm still here.

Work and home and extracurricular activities have overtaken my brain.

Stupidly advanced myself to a position in my volunteer activities that makes volunteering more like a full time job with lots of overtime for no money....
Am waiting for a promotion at work that they say I'm going to get being that I have been doing my job plus the job I'd be doing when I get the promotion....
My daughter is graduating from High School this year and we're trying to get the house and the yard in shape to have a big party for her in July.....
I am going to the doctor and having tests because my blood pressure is very high... any ideas?

But ALEX! I was so happy to check in and see you talking about the incarnation or Remora.

I'm gonna look right now!

High blood pressure... hmm... could it be... STRESS? :P

May. 21st, 2006 04:10 am (UTC)
Hmmmmmmm? Never thought of that. ;)

Actually, more likely than not.... yes that's my problem

Doctors are giving me pamphlets and stuff about how to eat and what they are saying is what I already do so I cant figure it out if its not stress related.

Alex is beautiful! Good luck.
