My kind of fat burning is probably not the same as your kind of fat burning. The other evening while cooking supper I did some of this fat burning. I was draining water off some noodles and when I do this I typically take the easy route and use the lid. I just hold the lid on the pan and leave a little space where the water can drain out. While doing this I was talking to my husband who was sitting at the kitchen table.
In an instant, the lid slipped through my fingers and I poured boiling hot water onto my shirt and down my pants! I sucked in my stomach as hard as I could and pulled my jeans away from my body. As I did this
a huge puff of steam came out of my jeans. My husband looked on in amazement. “Are you okay?! You didn’t burn your private parts did you?!” I guess he was
pretty concerned about that. But no, I didn’t burn my private parts because I had a little fat to block the hot water from going directly to that area.
Standing in the kitchen I pulled my shirt up and
dropped my pants to prevent further burning. My husband had a look of awe on his face as the scene unfolded. Thankfully the kids were outside playing otherwise it would have been hard to explain why mommy was half naked in the kitchen.
The burns on my stomach were very painful but
thankfully began to heal quickly. So for once in my life it paid to have a little extra fat.
So please pass the chocolate cupcakes so I can be
prepared for next time!
On Friday night I attended my first Glow Dance. I
had no idea what a Glow Dance was but the PTA at our school was hosting the event as a fund raiser. Apparently they do it every year. The cost was five-dollars per head to get in the door and they had tables set up where they
sold glow in the dark items like necklaces, bracelets, earrings, wands – you name it. If it glowed in the dark they sold it. Once you have you glow items you then enter the gym were a DJ is playing music.
The only light is coming from the DJ’s disco ball. The gym is completely dark. Parents are seated on the bleachers and the kids hit the dance floor. As a parent this was one of the most terrifying events I have ever been to. You can’t see who you are sitting next to let alone your kids, just flashes of glowing lights going in all directions. Some running, some dancing. The music was loud too.
When we got home my husband asked if I saw the
principal or any teachers. The answer was no. I couldn’t see anyone or anything. It was the strangest event I’ve ever been to.
Last night we took the kids out to supper at Incredible Dave’s and then to Lights Under Louisville. If you’ve never been to an Incredible Dave’s it’s like a Chuckie Cheese except with really great food. If you buy a meal for $16.99 you automatically get a $10.00 card for games which is a great deal. And for $16.99 you can get a rib eye steak dinner, chicken Alfredo or a ton of other delicious options.
When we finished eating the kids did the trampoline with the bungee cords, climbed on a huge jungle gym thing and played a wide variety of rip off games. Will played a candy game that cost $1.00 to play. He won a Tootsie Roll and was really impressed. Incredible Dave’s really was quite incredible and I’m sure we will be back very soon.
Next we traveled to downtown Louisville for one of the most unique Christmas light displays I have ever seen. There is a business called the Mega Caverns that offers zip-lining during the summer months. In the winter they transform it into a winter wonderland.
What makes it unique is that it’s an underground cave. It costs $25 per car to drive thru and takes thirty minutes to see all of the displays. As Christmas music plays you
travel along oohing and aahing with the windows down. It was sixty-five degrees outside last night. The weather is great here, so far I love it.
I think Lights Under Louisville will be one of our ‘new’ Kentucky Christmas traditions.
