Hey, Hot Wing Lady part deux

It's been another non-stop week here but I'm hanging in there and enjoying my work even though there are not enough hours in the day to do it all!! I'm grateful for the abundance of work as well as the energy and God given talent to make it all look nice :)

Something happened last night I had to share. Almost three years ago I wrote this post about my relationship with chicken wings and the lady that makes them at the local supermarket.

Things have changes so much grocery shopping wise. I rarely venture into the middle aisles anymore except for dog supplies, toilet paper and salt and vinegar PopChips. I wouldn't recognize my cart if I lost it so I keep it close by. I used to be embarrassed by it especially if a weekend was coming up. I have been asked if I was having a party and I wasn't. God that's horrifying.

Anyway, I was in the seafood department and the chicken wing maker was behind the counter and came running out after me, hugged me and said "I saw you and your husband the other day and I hardly recognized you both. You look so great no wonder I haven't seen you in a while!"

I SO needed that encounter.

I was stressed and feeling snacky. I haven't been working out all week due to an arm injury that happened sometime over the weekend. I must have pulled a muscle because I haven't even been able to make a fist or lift my coffee. It's feeling better but now I'm dreading getting back to it. Just goes to show myself I can't ever stop. If I were like Shelley, I wouldn't let the injury get in my way but I did and now I'm going to pay for it!! :)


  1. What a nice compliment! I bet that felt good you are doin so well! Im sorry your injured feel better soon!

  2. what I love is that at that moment the right person gifted you the right thing to say. Get your arm checked out if it persists that sounds kinda serious.

  3. That's a lovely story. I'm looking forward to the day when someone recognizes that I've lost weight.

  4. I'm sorry about your arm - and agree that you should get it checked out. But believe me, there's been plenty of whining and pity-eating over my injury, so don't beat yourself up over missing a few workouts. Your body probably needed the rest anyway. Hope the arm does improve, and soon!

    Oh, and that was a lovely compliment from the wing lady. Amazing who we touch (and are touched by) in our day-to-day lives!

    Hope you have a great weekend. :)
