My work load exploded today. 4 projects are setting on my desk. All but due like on Friday. NO way...can't do it. Each has it's own issues. I guess being busy is a good thing (knocking on wood here!). emoticon

Hubby is sick. I think he has a cold. He's lost his voice. emoticon He did go to the union meeting last night, but didn't tell me a lot about what was said since his voice was shot. I did get a bit though...I guess they have one of best labor lawyers on the west coast to represent them. He told them they might be offered a lesser position if recalled and half the wage they were making. We can't live on that. It wouldn't be worth it to leave his new job for his old. But if they offer him the exact same wage and job..he'll take it in a heart beat. He'll also still help the guys at his new job, he thinks it's only right to do that and not leave them high and dry. The file a grievance about the layoff. I don't know what happens now. emoticon

Since he had snacks at the meeting and wasn't feeling well..hubby had miso soup when he got home..and followed that up with chicken noddle soup. I had stopped on my way home and picked up some more Robitussin for him and a quickie dinner (not knowing he was eating at the meeting). So I had that for my dinner. Italian rub pot roast (from Hormel) and some honey glazed carrots (from Green Giant...HOHOHO). After I had Blue Bell Banana Pudding ice cream...YUM!! But just a 1/2 cup (170 calories). I did snack when I got home (BAD ME!) but it's all logged and my weight was down this morning. emoticon

Did my workout at lunch. But didn't do one last night. I'm burning about 300 calories a day just at lunch. I really need to burn at least 500 a day though working out. emoticon

Well that's it for this Hump Day. Only two more days until the weekend! emoticon Have a great day!

    The whole job thing with Chuck sounds kind of complicated. Tell him I said hi and I'm thinking about him. And let me tell ya, be glad you're busy. After sitting on my butt at that desk for hours on end with nothing to do, I'd have killed to be slap happy busy! Hugs, Calen~

Blowing In The Wind

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

Everything is blowing in the wind here. It's blowing so hard the trees in the parking lot look like they'll fall over. The wind has also kicked up the dust...since Vegas is in the middle of the desert. It's going to be FUN driving home from work today! emoticon

So yesterday was super busy for me. Getting projects as close to done as I can and just working my cute butt off (oh were that true...that setting at my desk working so hard would reduce my butt! emoticon ). I was so pooped last night I did nothing after dinner but read a book (on my Kindle app). So I had to do last night's dinner dishes this morning before work. Not huge task as I made left over corn chowder for dinner. Hubby was in need of some comfort food. He's either got the sniffles or all the wind/dust has kicked up his sinuses. emoticon

Speaking of my Kindle app...I'm going to need to find some more e books to load up on it. I'll have to look for free ones as my payday is still a few days away. But that's OK..you can get some really good free books on Amazon. I've been into paranormal romances lately..nothing like hottie vamp, shapeshifter, alien, demon, etc. emoticon They are fast reads,which works out well when working out in the gym at work!

I'm up in the weight dept after the weekend. You all know weekends are my weak spot. emoticon So it's like starting all over every Monday...reminds me a bit of Groundhog Day. emoticon

But I'm still hitting the gym at work and doing an hour 5 days a week. This month I've done all treadmill for a challenge at work. Next month I'll go back to alternating between the treadmill and the elliptical. Home works are very hit and miss right now. emoticon

Something that I talked to my Dr about and didn't mention here yet was drinking flavored water. We have been drinking Propel water for a long time now. I started (just recently) to wonder if the problems I have at home with eating might have something to do with the artificially sweeteners in the water. I mean it seemed that when drinking it, it made me want to eat. This could be true for the weekend eating too. The only place I don't drink Propel water is at work. There I drink tea and plain water. So I decide to switch to just plain bottled water. And since I was going to see my Dr anyway...I asked her what she thought. She so totally agrees with me. Said that she too had noticed flavored water seemed to have that effect and she had switched to plain water too (of course she's expecting...so that makes since.) I'm going to see if it makes a difference at home. emoticon

OK...I can't think of anything else right now...so have a great rest of your Tuesday. And those in the Vegas area..hold on to something!

    Groundhog Day! I love it! I can so identify with that. LOLOL the wind's been awful here today, too. Supposed to have thunderstorms by 9:00, but 9:00 has come and gone. It's raining, however. Is it headed your way? How's things going with C's new job? Hugs, Calen~

Friday Roundup

Saturday, April 19, 2014

And it'll be a short one. I was off work today (Holiday), I'm tried and a ready for bed.

My day started off with a 7:20 AM Dr appt for the thing on my boob. As I suspected...a bug bite of some kind. It's pretty much healed by now (it's been like 8 weeks since I found it). There is still a smallish lump that the Dr said was just a bit of scar tissue from healing. She gave me an antibiotic cream to use on it. emoticon

Then a quick stop at Starbucks for coffee (hubby was at work). Next was Wally World. I picked up some spring colored shirts for Hawaii (all I have are drag racing t shirts!), a sleep short set for the trip, a battery powered shaver (I had two for years and they finally gave the ghost!), some new undies, and I picked up some office stuff for hubby. emoticon

Lunch with hubby was next...we went to Panera Bread. I only got a half sandwich...but that came with a pastry. We each got one..well..I got them both. A scone and a blueberry muffin. I ate the scone when I got home. The muffin will be breakfast for me tomorrow morning. I found that I'm not much of a scone person. emoticon

One last stop at Office Depot (for hubby) and then IO was back home..eating the scone and then working out. Yep..even managed to get a 90 min treadmill workout in! emoticon

I called Caleb and had a nice talk with him. He was feeling better and he's started to open up to his mom. But I told him he can call me anytime he needs to talk. He's going to be OK! emoticon

I'm over calories tonight. emoticon

So now I'm going off to bed. Have a great weekend everyone!!

    So glad to hear that your talk with Caleb went well. I'm guessing Chuck has settled into his new job now? Randy will be here this weekend. Looking forward to seeing him. Don't know if he's flying or driving. Have a great weekend, kiddo. When do you guys go to Hawaii again? Hugs, Calen~

My Friday!

Thursday, April 17, 2014

Today is my Friday! emoticon My company added a extra Holiday for and they chose Good Friday. I'm not sure why as we have many religions at work. But I'll take it! I have a Dr appt (for my bug bite on the boobie, which is almost gone) in the morning. I'm going to check and see if they take my company insurance..just in case we have to go on mine. If they don't and we do have use mine, we'll need to find a new Dr. I hate doing that. It's always a crap shoot finding a good one. emoticon

But then the rest of my day is free. Hubby won't home (see yesterday's blog). But I'm sure he'll have some kind of "hunny do" list for me. He seems to think that if I have a day off that he's not around for...I'll get bored and that I need something to do. Ummm...NO...not really! emoticon I do love him though..so I humor him. emoticon

I did so well with eating last night! I was within calories and everything! emoticon However..I didn't do a Xbox workout. I know...I was just tried. So I set on my butt and didn't do anything (well...I did do dishes and wash hubby's new work shirts). emoticon

While I was seating on my cute (if I do say so myself!) butt...I got to thinking about the bottled water I drink at home. It's fruit flavored bottled water. I don't drink it at work...there I drink just plain water. But I was wondering if something in the water that could trigger me to feel hungry at night (when I do drink a couple of bottles of it). So I'm going to switch to just plain water at home too. An add bennie to that is plain water costs less (we do bottled water). Stay tuned for updates. emoticon

SO I guess that's all for today. Have a great weekend everyone!! emoticon

    I so had to laugh at that first cartoon. I'm at the place in my life where the toity is the first thing I scope out when we go ANYWHERE! Hope your "hunny do" list isn't very long. You deserve a break, too! Hugs, Calen~
