Venting Monday...

Came in to work this morning. Our main phones lines are down... our IT person only seems to be around part-time, working whatever hours fit into her schedule... she does not have a company cellphone, so no one knows how to reach her.
No one can get through since the phones aren't working.
Makes for an issue to enter orders, wouldn't you say?
I guess maybe I just get frustrated over stupidity, but COME ON PEOPLE!!!!

on-line dating

Has anyone out there tried on-line dating? I have tried with no luck. Anyone have good luck?

I tried at least 2 different ones more than once.


Anyone have a different experience? I've been alone 10 years. Miss being held and hugged.

Anyone have luck out there?

WWTK Wednesday


This week we are celebrating YOU, the people who link up every week and have made WWTK so much fun. So the questions this week are from some of our WWTK participants.

Vandy @ http://tttandme.blogspot.com/ wants to know:
{one} What is your quirkiest habit?
If my pants look too short and I can see the top of my foot, or the top of my shoe, I have to change them. I don't like short pants.

{two}What TV show do you always stop to watch?
Either NCIS or Ghost Hunters

Vanessa @ http://www.jfamforlife.com wants to know:
{three} What do you miss most about being a kid? 
 Recess... ;)

Jolene @ http://richjmylife.blogspot.com wants to know:
{four} How many siblings do you have?
I have two older brothers

Kenzie @ http://cbmommyhood.blogspot.com wants to know:
{five} How do you get yourself out of a funk?
 Go hang out in my room with my kitty cats, my tv remote, and a glass of wine... and then leave me alone... DON'T ask me if I'm okay... DON'T ask what's wrong... just go!!!


Food vs Fat

Don't you hate it when...

you work with someone who can eat chocolate/chocolate chips muffins for breakfast, down it with a can of Red Bull, and then snack all day long...

and seem to never gain a pound?????

How frustrating is that?

Takes me back to my high school days. My best friend could sit in the commons in the morning, eat one of those packs of 6 cinnamon rolls with frosting and 2 cans of Coke Classic and not gain an ounce. We went shopping and for her, size 4 was too big, size 2 (or 3) was too small. Same with her wedding dress!


Random Thursday Thought

Okay, random thought that came to mind...
(see what happens when you have blog access???)

I can walk and chew gum...

I can listen to music while I work...

I can do homework with the tv on...



Stop, stand... sneeze... walk again!

fat day

Went to the gym. Felt good until the cramp in the stomach.

I feel like hell. Trying to monitor my eating and being sure to exercise. My major problem is dinner at home. I can't control it, I can't make decisions on it. Someone else makes the meal... Someone who is set in her old-fashioned ways. The meals are not the healtiest, they come out of the freezer or a box.

I am frustrated and feel gross. I feel fat and ugly. I don't like anything about me and wish I could feel better.

I struggle and fight with my heart and soul. Tonight is bad for me. Tonight is depression and sadness.

I watch my breakfast and lunch. I know I can control those meals. Dinner is not an option. I am then trying to help my son stick to this and get healthy. I am trying so hard.

I am stressed and miserable today.

New Week - Still Working out

Worked with the trainer last week and thought I was going to die!!

Survived... went to work out Saturday and Sunday... me and my boy.

Felt good. Slept good. Got the muscle kinks out.

Now working to focus on my food intake... and then I will check from there.

One step at a time... and in my case... baby steps... but I know I can do it...

just have to avoid being obsessed...
