Day 160 - You don't bring me flowers ...

Okay, so one thing I hate about drinking water, is all the peeing it makes me do. Who has time to be running to the bathroom constantly? James says it's good exercise and I should count each trip towards my 10,000 steps a day goal! Right!

I got a nice bouquet of flowers today from Mr. Wise Guy. Why? Well, yesterday I had a somewhat dreadful day, full of little harassments and then on my way home I was running to get the bus on a wet pavement and I slipped TWICE believe it or not, landing hard on the same bum cheek each time. There were two men standing behind me and people walking past me and not ONE stopped to ask me if I was okay or if I needed help. Of course I missed the bus and had to wait for a good 15 minutes for the next one, then endured the hour long ride home sitting in soaking wet trousers and underwear with a sore butt. I woke up in agony this morning with a stiff shoulder and arm, a hurting wrist and a tender butt. My honey felt so sorry for me that he got me a little bouquet of flowers to cheer me up. Guess I should tumble over more often.

  1. Awww how sweet of him!! Hope ya feel mended real soon!

  2. James sounds like a keeper to me. That was really sweet of him.

    One thing about drinking all that water, your body will start using it more efficiently once it's used to getting it. Initially, you'll pee all the time, but as time goes on and you keep drinking the water, that will lessen as the water goes towards making your skin softer, your organs function better... You'll see. But it does take a little while.

  3. what a sweetie pie!! Has he got a brother somewhere here in the US?

    Sayre is right - you will adjust to the water. One trick - don't drink it all at once like I tried to do - I would force it down to get it over with. Drink thruout the day and the potty trips will be less frequent.

    Sorry to be so lax, been down with the flu here, but will do an entry tonite!

  4. Ahhhh congrats on your flowers. That's really sweet.

    About the water thing - I can't help you out there. :) Obviously its flushing out something! :)

  5. What a sweetheart! You deserve it though!
