November 27 - Black Friday
Wednesday, November 27, 2013      5 comments

So unlike most in the US, I won't be cooking for Thanksgiving. My family doesn't really celebrate it - not because we don't appreciate it but simply because we all go to our in-laws for this day. Since I no longer have in-laws, I won't be cook... Read more

Just got back from my ex-mother's-in-law funeral and it was very nice but sadly, there were probably only about three dozen people there...not much more. Got to see several people from my ex's side of the family that I hadn't seen in a long tim... Read more

Got a call very early this morning - a little after 7 am - from my ex to let me know his mother had passed away early this morning. While she's been in the hospital since March (only home a few weeks during that time), it was still a slight sur... Read more

Arrived at DFW late last night and it was a very smooth flight, especially considering how small the plane was! LOL Again...there were NO children on board! How could I get so lucky?? Heard a crying baby in the terminal waiting to board ano... Read more

The airplane trip was quick and there were actually no kids on the flight - first time that's happened!! I'm hoping a few days away from the Texas pollen will allow my body to regain strength and be more capable of fighting this stuff off. ... Read more

It's been since 2005 since I went on my last REAL vacation and that was going to Japan to see my daughter and SIL. Tomorrow, I will be flying to be with them for almost a week and I still can't shake this crud. The last thing I want is to be c... Read more

I'll be flying out of state to see my daughter, SIL and grandson in just a couple of days. That's the good news. The bad news is I've been sick for almost a week now. At first, I thought it was just allergies but as I had to keep coughing... Read more

When I got to work, the HR/receptionist told me that she had received a compliment from one of my customers about me. I thanked her after she told me what the person said, then went to my lane. As the HR lady was leaving, she handed me a c... Read more

Finally lost 2.5 pounds this week. That means I've met my goal and exceeded it by 1.5 pounds by Halloween and I still have a week to go! So I'm excited! ... Read more

Jordan was let go after only two days on the new job. The REASON that was given was because he was late the second day, even though the people commented over and over again how really, really good he was with the dogs and even though he was the... Read more

We've had so much rain that it has been impossible to mow and the weeds are getting knee high! I got off work around 3:30 yesterday and since the sun had been out all day, I managed to mow at least the front and prevent the city from issuing a ... Read more

So in the past week, I've dropped one and a half pounds, a total of eight and a half pounds since Sept. 8th - just a little over a month. (Some of you may have noticed that I change my icon with each loss.) That's the most progress I've made i... Read more

Thursday, October 10, 2013      4 comments

Last night I worked till 10 pm, and since Target has some great sales going on for animal food, I'm not one to bypass a good deal when it's something I can use. HOWEVER, when I got into my car, it wouldn't start nor would it jump start. So I h... Read more

I still don't exercise like I should but having to follow the diabetic diet, I have now lost six pounds within six weeks. That's pretty slow but nice to be going in the right direction for a change. ... Read more
