pizza burns and aching bones

Im about to embark on another few hours of fun filled mandatory training at work. I am so excited I can hardly contain myself. I would do something sneaky like make out my grocery list, or list all my favorite books and movies in alphabetical order during class, but we will be tested on the stuff, so I have to sort of pay attention. The thing is, its not even useful stuff. It has no bearing on what I do what so ever. But its one of those things..."everyone" must attend.

The brightside is that GICOE wont be there. He took his last week.

I have this annoying burn-painful-thing on the roof of my mouth. It has to be from the pizza I ate on Saturday...because I havent eaten anything but diet bars, protein shakes and salad since..but boy is it annoying. My problem is...with pizza, I love it so much that I cant wait for it to cool off. I.must.eat.it.now. You would think I would learn my lesson, but I dont.

My body is aching, because on Sunday I decided to take the boys plus one friend to the ball field and we (yes, this includes me) practiced and practiced. Throwing, catching, and hitting. I was the pitcher...which meant I had to chase 95% of the balls that were hit. CHASE..as in RUN. Im too OLD for this stuff, obviously. Oh, I felt all cool and athletic while I was doing it..but now I hurt. Alot.

This morning I was extracting two weiner dogs and a poodle (we are dog sitting..yes, I said poodle)from the bed, because none of them will get out of the warmth willingly to go out in the cold and go potty. The only one who looks forward to it, is my hyper "can we go" terrier Joey, whom I never have to coax anywhere. Anyway, I had a point.....oh, yeah. The three dog extraction HURT...it required bending and lifting times three. Im so old.....when did all this happen to me?

Now, I must go so I can get a seat in the very back of the room, so I can sit back and look for people doing stupid things that I can blog about.

What a great random post!
My mom burns her mouth on pizza EVERY.Single.Time. Because of the same thing. Her immense love affair with pizza.

Shanti said...

Ah, yes, the pizza dilemma...nothing better than fresh, hot pizza. But is it worth the pain? Usually, yes. =) Sorry, though!

That last line cracked me up because I do the saaaaaame thing. LOL!

Heather Cherry said...

My husband has that same obsession with pizza and does the same thing every time we eat pizza. And i always, always have to say YOU'RE GOING TO BURN YOUR MOUTH AGAIN, which he promptly ignores.

Haha! :) Caedmon never has to get coaxed outside, but Lilly....there are times I have to SHOVE her bulldog butt out that door.

Do you have a blackberry? Or do you find that you have to keep a notebook and pen with you all the time now? I have pens and note pads EVERYWHERE now...and yet I still manage to be without it on occassion.

Pizza..... I do it every stinking time. Unless it's delivered. ;)

It's been raining here and coaxing is the kindest word I can think of to go along with the super powers it takes to get our dogs out the door. We could really use forklifts and wheelbarrows!!! Can't wait to hear who did something stupid in your training :)

I've burned my mouth on food so often that my kids have named the maneuver (whatever maneuver it might be... you'd have to ask them) after me.

Sorry to hear about the training you have to attend. When I worked at a social services agency I once attended a food stamp workshop that was so boring and hard to follow that it left permanent mental scars. (My job had nothing to do with food stamps.)
