I watched The Silence of the Lambs on Sunday afternoon. I wanted something to watch while frosting cupcakes for a party we were going to that evening. I know, not your typical frosting-cupcakes-on-a-Sunday-afternoon kinda movie, but Tom was in another room reading for his class, and that was one movie he was pretty adamant about not seeing...plus I didn't want to watch it at night. But it wasn't as scary as I thought it would be...just really twisted and weird.
#57: Keep a new plant alive for a month.
Well, the month of June is over...and my plant is still alive and well! I decided to take her to work, because she can actually get more sunlight there. Here she is! (Excuse the lack of quality produced by my phone's camera.)
I named her Dorothy, by the way. :)
And I recently found out that Dorothy is a golden pothos. Good to know; I've been calling her "you know, one of those plants that lives forever."
#12: See a doctor about my incessant heartburn.
Those of you who've known me for awhile know that heartburn has been a constant part of my life for several years. I've tried lots of different things on my own, and I've been to doctors and had different kinds of tests done and been prescribed different medications, and nothing's ever seemed to work. Plus, I get heartburn from just about everything, including bread, cereal, bananas, and yogurt. Weird, right? Well, I went for my physical on Tuesday. I asked the doctor what could be done about it, and she referred me to a GI specialist. We'll see what happens. Prayers would certainly be appreciated, though!
#51: Choose walking over driving 5 times.
#58: Order fish at a restaurant 5 times.
This great new place just opened up practically across the street from where we live. It's called Bluegrass Burgers, and everything they serve is local: the beef, the chicken, the bison (yes, bison)...everything except maybe the ahi tuna steak burger. Well, we walked there this evening with our friends Scott and Amanda (and their sweet little baby girl, Cambria), and I got the tuna steak. I had it with lettuce, tomato, and some wasabi mayo from the kerazy toppings bar. It was great! My hopes of liking fish continue to rise...!
