Hubby went back to work today after the break in. When I left the house this morning it felt like a rock was setting in my tummy. I was almost afraid to leave! I don't know how many times over the last 5 days or so I wished I could afford to just stay home. But I can't so. So I need to trust in the things we've done to protect ourselves and our home. Cameras and a security doors. I've checked the cams like every hour today. It sucks to live like that. emoticon

On an up note...my eating is getting better. I still didn't work out today, I just didn't feel like it. Maybe tomorrow. emoticon

I also got back to my WIP for a few mins last night. I was nice to lose myself in my story even for just 30 mins or so. I'm going to do some writing every night. emoticon

So...that's about it for me today. It's short I know but I'm not feeling with it today.

    I don't know if it's any comfort or not, but our cabin up in the Uintahs sits on the same lot as my folks' best friends cabin. They have stickers on their doors and windows saying there are security cameras which they have up but aren't really functional. We don't have anything like that on ours. We've been broken into up there three times. No one has EVER touched their place. So the police may be right. It really is a deterrent. Let's hope so.

  I have also had my house broken into. My son was actually home asleep. I was thankful that no one got hurt but it made me feel violated and insecure. It takes time to feel secure again but you will otherwise this will rule your life. Don't let the robbers have the power. emoticon

MIA For 4 Days

Monday, October 20, 2014

I've been MIA the last 4 days. After I did my blog last Wed I got a phone call from my hubby. He came home from work and found our front door open. He went inside and found we'd been robbed. Again! This time whoever it was ransacked the whole house. No drawer, cabinet, etc was left untouched. Turned upside down, dumped on the floor. The back door from the patio to the garage had been kicked in (it seems they tried to get in the other back door but couldn't.) and the house was shambles.

They took our TV (that sucker was 55"!), my Xbox and two games (Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012 and Nike+ Training), 3 laptops (one brand spanking new!), our gun and ammo, my SS card, Birth Cert, our marriage license, a car title (hubby's 91 Stang), hubby's Air Force retirement papers, and our good jewelery. They also opened (and left open) our freezer in the garage.

I was So pissed I told the cop and CSI that was the house when I got home that If I caught up these scum bags I would kill them! The cop asked me to calm down. I was that pissed!

We do have insurance but we also have a $1000 deductible. Replacing the back door should almost take care of that. We'll need to replace the other stuff. The jewelery we really can't replace. We now have a 8 camera security system installed and hubby is putting a security screen door on the both doors today.

It just SUCKS that we have to feel so violated in this way. And that we'll need to try and hide any of electronic stuff even within our own home. The cop and CSI said we could get security service but even then it's still mostly a deterrent thing. Most home burglaries only take between 6 and 7 mins to happen. By the time a security company can send someone, notify us and the cops, and the cops get there it's already too late. Our cam system will get clear pictures of anyone breaking in from now on. And a dog really won't help. Our neighbors were robbed even though they have a dog.

So I have called our banks (just in case), got a new SS card on the way, put a fraud alert on both mine and hubby's credit, I still need to contact DMV and stuff. It's a huge PIA but something we need to do.

I didn't really watch what I ate at all. Thursday I was lucky to eat at all. So I was up weight wise today, and no workout as I hit a Gamestop at lunch to replace my missing workout games (small stuff I know but something I can do NOW).

I'm back at work today (I took Thur and Fri off last week) but skipped my work out to run errands. Dinner...well...who knows. I'll have to wing it!

I'm just so bummed out! Another thing...something like this shows how strong your marriage is. Hubby and I are going to be OK.

    emoticon I am thankful that you and your DH are safe!! I can't really even imagine how you feel right now.
"Violated" and "Angry" don't even begin to cover it. I will be praying for Peace for you guys and your Neighbors, and Quick Justice for the Creeps who did this.

So It's Hump Day

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

*Chanting softly to my self* Two more days...Two more days...Two more days...Two more days...Two more days...Two more days...Two more days...Two more days...Two more days...Two more days...Two more days...Two more days...Two more days...Two more days...Two more days...

Yep..two more days until the weekend! It's been another slow, boring day at work. Most of my co-workers are off today. We had an ISO audit today and they didn't want to picked for it. emoticon

I'm here but spent most of the day hiding in various spots around work. The bathroom, the gym, empty conference rooms, or just walking the halls (with paper in my hand so I at least LOOK like I'm busy). It worked! They didn't pick me! emoticon

So lets get real here for a minute. I just want to say...
MY EATING IS CRAPPY right now. I need to fix this! I know...only I can fix it! My brain says I can do this..the rest of me not so much. So...I'm going to work HARDER on my eating. Smaller portions and less sugar (read that as chocolate!). I will DO this! emoticon

As to the eating...not so good today at work. I had come candy. And last night wasn't good either. I did get my workout in at lunch. So that's a plus. But I really need to balance the eating with the working out. emoticon

And next week is my Booby Smash!

I didn't get anything done on my WIP last night. I did do some on it at work. I want to do some tonight too. emoticon

OK...all done for today. Have a great Hump Day!

Boy...is it me or is this day just creeping along? maybe because I'm not overly busy right now? And days that creep by makes the week creep along too! emoticon

So since this seems to be a creeper week, it's also a rather boring one. Nothing much happening for me and mine. Hubby is home from work today. He had a bad headache this morning (and last night). He had his eyes checked due to his diabetes yesterday and the headache came on after that. Plus you know I think he's a bit depressed with his whole work situation right now. I wish I could do something to help him but other then be as upbeat and supportive as I can, I don't know what else to do. emoticon

Eating wasn't bad yesterday. Today it's been so so. I did make it to the gym at lunch. Even though I really wanted to stay at my desk and work on my WIP. I didn't get anything done on it last night (I did get a bit done yesterday afternoon). It been slow going working on it. emoticon

OK...that's it from here! HAve a great rest of this slowwwwwwwwwwww day!

    I whole blog and it's kicked you off the subscription list again -- along with Ducky and A Rare Bean. Not sure why it chooses the three of you. And I even clicked the blog button up top. But when you didn't show up in my inbox for the second day, I didn't wait this time. Went right to the Blog subscription list...Sigh...

So what, specifically, do you feel has gotten you so off track? You're one of the most single-minded people I know when it comes to exercise? You've always been my hero!

Weekend Upate!

Monday, October 13, 2014

It was a busy weekend! from shopping to yard work. We'll start with shopping. emoticon

I spent UNDER $100 at the grocery store this weekend! So emoticon for me! Most of the time it's like $160 for the week. Since hubby took such a huge pay cut, I was trying to get things on my weeks to pay (we trade off depending on whose payday it is). But I found I just can't do that for too many weeks. It shorts me else where. So this weekend it was only $85. emoticon

Then we went to Best Buy. The new Android update (I think it's like 4.4.3) messed up his tablet. So we took it back to best Buy (they have great protection plans right?) only to find out they had changed the protection plan rules and someone didn't tell us when we bought the tablets last Nov. So it had to be sen tout to be looked at, maybe fixed, or replaced with a refurbished one. Hubby wasn't a happy camper..nor am I. The protection plans are why we shopped at Bets Buy. My tablet has the same issues plus it shuts itself off randomly, but I was only sending one at a time back. emoticon

After Best Buy we went to Fry's Electronics, to just look around and ended up walking out with a new laptop. For me. Hubby wanted to buy me one a few weeks ago and I talked him out of it. I wasn't able to this time. So now I'm learning Windows 8.1. But it's much faster then my old 80 gig slow laptop. That one I'm sending to my daughter. Her desk top died. I just need to get a new battery for it, the lap top that is. emoticon

Sunday I did the laundry and we did yard work. Cutting trees and weeding. That kind of stuff. Not a lot of steps but lots of sweaty work. emoticon

Eating wasn't the best over the weekend. But it's back to being good today. I missed my lunchtime workout (I had some work stuff that came at the last min). But I did mess around with my WIP. I printed a proof copy of the book so far. 10 1/2 chapters. I stuck them in a binder. emoticon

Speaking of my WIP...I'm now 2/3 of the way though chapter 11! emoticon

OK....I'm going to boogie on out of here! Have a great rest of your day!

    That's one reason we don't shop at Best Buy anymore. They're cuttin' corners everywhere and no, they don't tell you that. I don't know how their sales people are there, but here they're so snotty it's ridiculous.

Have fun with your new lap top.
