Just Call Me Grace!

Thursday, August 28, 2014

In case any of you DO NOT know...I'm not the most graceful person you'll meet. That being said...I think I out did even myself today! We had the Ice Cream Social at work. We had a bean bag toss (which proved to be very popular), lots of ice cream and toppings, and a cakewalk. Yep...a cakewalk. We had laminated numbers taped to the carpet in the Cafe with blue painters tape. So before the event kicked off...a few of us (the Activate Planning Committee) decide to try out the cakewalk. We were walking around while the music was playing, the music stopped, I jumped on a number with one foot and that fricken number went flying one way and I went DOWN! In front pf a room full people! I have rug burn on one knee (though my jeans no less) and I wrenched my shoulder. They say someone screamed...might have been me but I don't remember screaming. I do remember seeing the darn floor come at my face as I went down. At least, so far, no pictures have shown up! I should so change my name to Grace! emoticon

So...Ice cream Social means I had ice cream for lunch, and no formal work out. Just a lot of walking and stair climbing. I'm so counting that as a work out! I had one scoop vanilla and one scoop chocolate with some toppings. emoticon

We also had a Health Fair at going on at the same time. You know...where you get to see a bunch of people trying to woo you to come see them (Banks. CU, Drs, Dentists, etc)> All them having their own raffle and giving away cheesy free stuff (zip lock baggie with toothbrush/toothpaste anyone?). I never win anything...heck I wasn't even sure I was putting the phone number for my phone at work (I mean really...who call's themselves?). But I did win something this time. A pair of Sunglasses! (I can't use them, they don't fit over my glasses.) I'm going to send them to Karry. emoticon

I'm off work tomorrow, Having a 4 day weekend with hubby. I hope to get some serious writing time in at some point. emoticon

OK...so I'm going to be off now. Have to get ready to go home and I want to slip out early. Have a great day everyone..see you tomorrow!

    Gawd! We're so twinners! I launch myself off a bench at Spaghetti Factory, you do a brodie on a number on the floor. Bet you'll be a bit sore tomorrow. Please tell me you didn't fall on your tailbone or your hip! Take it easy, Gracie! Hugs, Calen~ emoticon emoticon

Hump Day Happening

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Which is pretty much nothing...nada. Another quiet day for me. I made it to the gym, ate right, worked on my project at work. And now I'm trying to get Chapter 8 of my book off the ground.

So it looks like this might be a short one. One thing...hubby has his next arbitration in a few weeks. They'll either decide he gets his old job back or they go to court (next step). I'm hoping it stops here and they just give him his job back. emoticon

OK..back to Chapter 8! Have a great Hump Day everyone!

    Oh Lord! I need a wall-sized poster of that first cartoon to put in my library room! That is so freakin' me! LOLOLOL Well, glad your day was uneventful. Maybe with all that's been going on about sticking it out there through the buy out, you had enough excitement for the week. Hope you're up to your ears in chapter 8 right about now! Hugs, Calen~

Yep been one of those days. News from the job...they are offering $$ to each of us to stay though the changes happening. I wasn't planning on going anywhere anyway. So I guess that's some what good news. Otherwise..the moral at work sucks. emoticon

I did get a workout in at lunch. I listen to music and read (Kindle app for Android) while doing it. Today I paid more attention to how the book was laid out rather then the story line. Just trying to feel my way around this whole writing thing. I finished chapter 7 but have yet to start chapter 8. I had some clean up to do on the first 7 chapters. I hope to start chapter 8 night...maybe. emoticon

I was so tried last night I went to bed at 10:30. That's early for me. Just the stress of hubby's job, his health, our relationship, my job, money worries taking a toll I think. I did sleep like a baby last night..no waking up at all. emoticon

Hubby was so sweet last night. He switched channels so I could watch the Emmy's. Although why I even wanted to I don't know. Mostly cable shows that I don't watch winning. And when a network show did win...it was the same ones as in years past. Nothing new. UGH! emoticon

Boy..do I seem like a Debbie Downer today or what? OH well... I'll have to try harder tomorrow! Oh yeah..eating was OK yesterday. And so far today it's been good too.

SO...I'm going to slink on outta here. See you all tomorrow!

    Hope your blue mood didn't translate into a margarita and appetizers when you got home... Hate it when I get to feeling that way. Just want to stuff something in my mouth to shove down the feelings. Throw yourself into chapter 8! Big hugs, Calen~

Yep it's back. Like a bad penny, a cold you can't get rid of, Monday is back! Not a lot went on over the weekend. Did some grocery shopping, housework, some writing. emoticon

Eating wasn't the best. We had Rolling Smoke BBQ for dinner on Sat (no lunch though), then steak on Sunday (again...no lunch). I did over do it on wafer cookies. But their all gone (well...mine are hubby has a bunch but they are for his lunch). I'm back in the gym starting today. I really think the break last week did me good. I didn't struggle as much as I thought I would getting though it. emoticon

Scary note though...Nick (SIL) had to go to the ER. He had a infection in his colon that had created some abscesses. The Dr said that if it hadn't been caught, it would have gone septic and he could have died. Scared the sh*t out of him and Karry. He's OK now. On antibiotics but he has to change how he eats now. No corn, nuts, sunflower seeds, that kind of stuff. For Karry this also brought back all the stuff when her dad (my ex) died. He died from almost the same thing. I'm just so thankful Nick is alright! emoticon

Caleb had his football Jamboree on Sat,. He's on the 7th grade team this yr. Playing the front line both offense and defense. Here's some pictures of him and Malia:

Caleb is the middle player (#66)

Malia could hardly pick up the bat thingy!

She fearless too!

So that will be that. We have an Ice cream Social this week at work (make your own Sundaes) and a short week next week. I may take an extra day off, just me, to spend the day writing. I'll have to see. emoticon

Have a great rest of this Monday.

    Diverticulitis? That's what his lordship had. His colon burst. He had to have a colostomy for over a year while they fixed things. It was pretty traumatic all the way around. Nick was very lucky they caught it! Hugs, Calen~

Friday at last. For some strange reason I'm not as up about that fact as I normally am. 30 more mins and I can head home from work, but then I have worry about what to fix for dinner. Since he's been going though this whole work issues thing, hubby has became a picky eater. He never was before (oh there are some things I know he won't eat). And he waits until I get something half way done to bitch about it. Grrrrrrrrrrr!!! I'll deal with it. I just hope the job things works out soon. emoticon

I haven't worked out all week. And except for today, eating has been OK. Today I had a tuna melt with fries from or cafe here at work (I logged it). While it was good at the time, it's feeling a bit heavy in my tummy right now. Too greasy I think. emoticon

I didn't get to work on my book last night. I left my writing thumb drive at work. Good thing I did work on it at lunch yesterday. I also worked on it today at lunch. And I've made sure the thumb drive is in my purse. I'm like half way though chapter 7 right now. emoticon

Lets see..what else is going on? Not a lot. So I think I'll mosey on out of here. Have a kick butt weekend! See you all on Monday!
