So so busy at work, playing catch up for the week I was gone. And I have people that dig their heels in and refuse to do what needs to be done and they get as far away from the guidelines as they can...on purpose. I've done all I can do, my boss will have to step in if he doesn't want things turned in late. This causes me stress.

The girl is over next week and texts me - can she go to the open house for freshmen at her new high school. Absolutely, yes. She says it is next Wednesday from 3:30-5:30. I tell her I will make arrangements to leave work early and get her over there.

And then, she texts me back and says - my cousin Mattie can take me. Ok, so does your dad need to take you to your Grandma's house to meet Mattie? No Mattie is going to come and get me....uh....yeah....I don't know Mattie, and I don't feel comfortable with her in my house roaming around freely. she then texts - I won't let her in - I will just meet her outside.

So in my mind - I'm like where has Mattie been the last six years, I've lived here and why all of a sudden is she involved in the girl's life. Maybe I'm paranoid, but I don't trust her Mother or mother's family or anything to do with her mom.

And the DH said he is working midnight shift next week, so he will be home to take her. regarless of who takes her, I'm sure she will get there. She has been at band camp off and on the last month, she should know where everything is by now.

DH told me he gained 10 pounds while on vacation - well he ate everything in site. I told him in jest, oh great if you gained 10 - I probably gained 25 because...female - over 50. I didn't get on the scale yet.

B: cold oatmeal, walnuts, vanilla iced latte

L: meatloaf sandwich, apple

D: a piece of meatloaf

S: smal PB sandwich

I didn't get to bed until 1:30 last night...dogs and stuff. Feeling it this afternoon.

B: shredded mini wheats, vanilla iced latte

L: chicken salad, garlic pita crackers, apple

D: baked chicken, brocolli

And then I was dumb enought to play a stupid game on Facebook - it was OMG What was your biggest mistake in life? - DH did it and he got - You trusted the wrong person! OK I get that.....

Photo of the day - SO I decide to do it.....


Seriously...WTF!! It's not like I can just stop eating all together!!  Needless to say, I did NOT share this. what a bunch of Sh!t!!

Have a great day. IP

LOL...what!? i cannot believe you got that answer for the game! that is NUTS! do not take to heart....do not take to heart!!!

well, now that you are back to work and to routine, i am sure you'll get into the swing of things...by next week! do you feel run down after a vacation? that is how i usually feel if i'm taking a "real" vacation, active, out of state or country or just very active on it, sightseeing. i come back needing another vacation! is that how you feel? i am sorry that work is so stressful for you after a vacation - i totally understand what you mean.

Keep on. maybe ask to see a photo of mattie ? lol...i don't know.

i do know that your daughter is older, but, i hope she will get to the orientation ON TIME! maybe check to make sure this girl mattie will be ON TIME.

Vacation is over, now back to work!

The day before we left, I was weeding the garden and got over heated. I thought I was ok. I sat down and when I got up I took a fall. I caught myself but my head hit a garden decoration and my shoulder landed on a landscaping stone, left me a nice bruise, but I al fine.

I don't think I ate too bad while on vacation - and we were active, walking and doing stuff. Nashville is great, we took our dogs and even made time to find three different dog parks for them to run and play. They both did so good in the hotel and in the car, so proud of my boys!

The girl acted moody a few times but she snapped out of it before she ruined anything. When we got there they couldn't find our hotel arrangements, I didn't get mad, just made a few phone calls and got it resolved. Also we were scheduled to ride a paddle boat down the Cumerland river, however, on this day, there were electrical issues and we didn't leave the dock. We ate lunch and watched a show, it was nice.

I'm glad to be home and am now looking forward ot my visit to Oklahoma to see my mom in two months.

B: cold oats with maple, brown sugar and walnuts

L: chicken salad, crackers

S: apple, DDP

D: meat loaf (if I make it)

Photo of the day: Cumberland river taken from the deck of the General Jackson river boat


I have reached new lows in my life and one day...I will share, these could be the turning point.

Have a great evening! IP

i'm sorry you accidentally hit your head and hope that you will be healing from the bruised look soon! sounds painful!

how exciting to go to NASHVILLE!? it's one of the places i've been intrigued in going to!

Your photo of the day is beautiful i love the shadow of the clouds in the water! and your vaca sounds wonderful. the best part of vacation to me, as being a fellow "desk job worker" is an oppportunity to be out and about and active also!

BearCountryGG on 08/05/2019:
Sorry for the accident....I swear...you never know exactly what you bumped until the nextday...when the bruises show up......sounds like you made the best of it all though and had a nice trip.

Dh was pretty moody the rest of the evening because of the court thing, oh well! I ask him one thing to take out some bacon. On his way to work he calls and I ask if he took out the bacon, he says NO. I was aggravated.

Anyway he stops and buys some and drops it off at my work before he goes in to his work.

I get home and start cooking the bacon...NOTE TO SELF - do NOT cook warm bacon that has been in the hot car all afternoon. It was slmy and gross and was just nasty all over the pan. But I got it cooked. It tasted all right. I ate two pieces with my two over easy eggs I made. I also made one egg each for the dogs, they just love eggs. The rest of the bacon I am going to use tomorrow to make a bacon, cheddar quiche.

I put some bacon in the Brussel Sprouts I cooked for DH. I also cooks some baby potatoes and the three pork chops that were in the refrigerator. I had to throw away a head of cauliflower and some strawberries because they were molded.

I have brocolli to cook tonight for the girl along with the cordon blue she wanted. That will be using all the perishables in my refrigerator.

A student volunteer is leaving the office today so they brought in pizza and cake. Yes I ate pizza and cake.

There is no relief in sight!

I have lots of chores to do over the weekend in prepartion for vacation. Oh and we are taking the dogs and I need to do yard work...

nicely done on the brussel sprouts, it does look great!!

mold happens so fast in this weather on the veggies. sometimes to help them stay fresh longer, i wash them with water and vinegar mix before sticking them in the fridge...when things are looking like they need it.

have a nice friday and weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

trishpiglet3 on 07/27/2019:
Brussel sprouts are the awesome and yours look great. There's a thing in the UK where we're supposed to hate them or something like that... it could be because the only way we know of cooking veg is to boil it to death

I picked up the girl from her moms. Her mouth was still hurting. I went to Panera bread and got her some brocolli cheddar soup. I went to Arby's for me and DH. I had the market fresh turkey sandwich. The gril drank a orange creme shake and ate most of the curly fries. DH ate the rest.

The girl was talking about band camp, and though it may be difficult for her to do right now I believe she is enjoying it. There is a trip planned to Cedar Point (the amusement park) but she said she didn't want to go because she doesn't ride the rides. She did say she may participate in the car wash on Saturday morning, she will let me know tomorrow when I pick her up for the week.

DH had to go to his Child Support Hearing this morning. He was not happy...at all. He doesn't know if his child support will be increased or not, he said he presented all his information and the judge said she may or may not go off the recommendation that increases his current child support more than $200 per month. I didn't want it to be the full amount. So now he is going to present the ex all the bills to now pay 1/3 instead of the half she previously had to pay, but never did.....all of this wears on my last nerve and yet....he wants to have another car payment...No, no and NO!

we ate, the girl showered and then it was time for her to go home.

Photo of the day: These are the purple flowers growing outside the Arby's building in the drive through lane, I want to find out what they are and plant them at my house.

Have a great evening. IP

Interesting flowers...they hearty!

Horn_of_plenty on 07/26/2019:
you know, i think girl is smart to skip the amusement park if she doesn't like rides! what a good idea. otherwise, she'd be stuck walking around with everyone, but waiting every time they waited on line for them....lots of standing by herself. i'm personally thinking it's a good choice she's skipping that! also, i'm really glad she's doing well with the band camp. so glad! keep rooting her on, she's doing good!

also, i love those flowers too and i'm sure they'd look amazing in your yard! let us know if you find out their name.

Donkey on 07/26/2019:
Girl made a smart choice. I was a band kid, and that would have been my choice too. My stomach can't handle most rides, even the mild ones.

Those are beautiful flowers!

Donkey on 07/26/2019:
Oh my goodness, the purple flowers are blazing star liatris!!!

I didn't have lunch at work, so I left to go get something and as I was turning off the access road onto the highway, DH turned onto the access road driving a brand new Nissan Rogue. He followed me to BK, which was the closest. He showed me this new car, I'm really not ready for a new car so of course I'm nonchalant about the whole thing. No I don't want to sit in it, no I don't want to drive it. I invite him to lunch and he is talking about trading off his paid off truck for this SUV. I don't want another car payment right now. Anyway he keeps calling it Rouge - like blush or the Mulan Rouge club. I kept saying it's Rogue - like a person who goes his own way or a trouble maker. My DH looks at me like I'm crazy and keeps calling it Rouge.

I order a BK Rodeo - meal - DH ordered the same thing and our bill came to $21.48. WTF. A bit more expense than I thought it should be. This was a huge burger, so we cut one in half and I ate that half and only a few of my fries. I am one of few people in the world who does not like or care for French fries.

So while he was talking about the Rouge, I finally said it is pronounced Rogue - he gets snarky and says - No it's not the salesman was call it the Rouge...well - my big butt, he is wrong. Anyway....

Don't get the BK Rodeo King...and it is ROGUE! DH sent the picture of the back end so I could compare the size to my Buick - this is before he decided to drive it to my work.

Photo of the day...Back end of the Nissa ROGUE!!

About 2:30 I eat cheezits and drink a DDP.

Once I get home, I have no energy or want to cook anything, so I hang out with my dogs. I feed them, they play.

And then my door bell rings. Rocco is an escape artist and got out of the backyard again. So I ask the little boy next door "did my dog get out again?" He says yes. As I open the door to go outside, Steve runs out too.

ANd wouldn't you know it....a lady is walking her two Schnauzer dogs and my two are running circles around her two dogs like striped apes and barking and causing all kinds of chaos. I aprologize profusely and she is snarky and says...'that's what leashes are for!"  - well I''m not walking my dogs - they got out. Anyway she is shooing and telling my dogs to get away all the while - pulling her dogs along. I ask her to please stop and I will get my dogs. I have the little boy next door and his grandpa out helping me get my dogs. Finally I walk across the street to actually get the leashes and when I open the front door, my dogs run in like nothing every happened. I apolgoized again, but I was fuming mad....and aggravated!

I go out and walk every inch of my back yard and replace a few pieces of wood planks and logs where I think Rocco is getting out and I sit out there with him from 6:00-8:30 and never once did that dog act like he wanted out of the back yard. He is an idiot!

For dinner I had ice cream and a few more cheezits. Not nutrious or healthy in anyway, but I did not want to cook. We didn't go to the store anyway because we didn't want to leave lots of food in the refrigerator while we will be gone next week.

The girl did make it to the orthodontist and she did send a picture of the new band colors, she chose purple and teal - it looks cute. I will get her tonight, but I have no idea what we are eating.

And my face is breaking out and there is a pimple right where the nose piece of my glasses sit - very painful and uncomfortable. Other than that...life is good!
I hope my DH stays away from car dealerships today.

Have a great day! IP

FIRST, you are VERY RIGHT with your pronunciation and D is wrong :)

Next, the back end looks beautiful and new and huge! CONGRATS!

I love how your dogs have people names ;) it makes me feel like it's little boys running out of your house!

I never really tried out color bands too much. it is cute though!

also, sorry about the pimple. i get them off and on also. annoying!

We were going to the taco place - DH had to work late so we were running about 2.5 hours behind our dinner time. I hate eating after 7:00 but he wanted to wait.

We get to the taco place about 8:45 it was a nice place and the tacos were amazing.

I had a grilled shrimp taco with guacomole with corn salsa, a BLT taco with the most amazingly cooked chili/cuman bacon I've ever tasted and then I had a steak taco with verde sauce - that was hotter than I anticpated so DH ate my middle taco..


DH also had the grilled shrimp taco, but he had a cauliflower taco and a grilled perch taco.- which he said he probably would eat again –




The tacos were very good and full of vegetables and we will probably go back here if we're in the neighborhood.

The only thing I didn't like is we had to pay for the chips and salsa...what Mexican restuarant makes you pay for chips and salsa?

Because we ate so late I didn't go to bed until about 11:30 because I kept tasting my dinner. Despite being behind schedule, it was a nice day and I enjoyed having dinner with DH.

Was feeling pretty antsy this morning because I had a routine cleaning at the dentist, however, I was just called and they had to reschedule because the hygenist had a family emergency. Win for me! I didn't want to go to the dentist anyway. It is rescheduled for the end of August.

The girl has an orthodontist appointment this morning and we are relying on the POS mom to take her - no word yet, but the appointment is at 9:15 so either she's there or on the way.

I ordered the girl a new swim suit from Amazon - however it only came with the top part of the suit - had I known you had to order the bottoms sseparately I would have....this aggravates me and I will never order any article of clothing from Amazon AGAIN!

Work is slow today.

Photo of the day!! Have you ever seen one of these??? I think it's a food truck.....

Those tacos look like they are to die for! And I like that there's only 1 tortilla -- there's no need to double up on the tortilla.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/23/2019:
LOL, NOPE, never seen a CHICK FIL-A truck!

also, the tacos do look good and the selection sounds even better than the majority of NYC places by me! quite excellent!

i can see why you were wanting to go to this taco place :)

BearCountryGG on 07/23/2019:

Friday I didn't go to work. DH and I took the day off for our anniversary. I wanted to go to the casino - We rode the train down town and  we lost $100 in about 30 minutes. DH had fun. I was hoping we would have won a little bit of something - didn't even when a bonus game. The saving grace was they gave me a free buffet for my birthday month so we had a buffet. It was pretty good. My original plans were to go to a taco place.

I ate a 3 ounce portion of pork loin, a lice of pepperoni pizza, a spoon full of chicken pasta and I couldn't find anything else that appealed to me. I went back and got another piece of pizza with tomato and mushroom - the crush was some of the best i've ever had. I did splurge at the dessert bar - a creme puff, 2 1x1 blondie brownies and a thin slice of peanut butter pie that I just tasted because it tasted like raw cookie dough and it wasn't my favorite.

On the way home DH wanted to stop at a car dealer and text drive cars (I hate this) but I indulged this as the day couldn't be about just me. We were there four about 3.5 hours, because the sales person wouldn't let us leave. Oh so annoying!

We get home and relax because it was horrid hot the day. We watched the baseball game.

Early morning Saturday DH woke me up telling me he was hurting very badly and was concerned it might be something serious. He went back to sleep and woke me up again telling me we should go to the ER. So we got to the ER about 3:30. He was admitted and tested. The CT revealed a kidney stone. They gave him medication and pain meds through an IV. And then they checked his sugar and it was very high like 378. So the doctor kept him and gave him some insulin to get his blood sugar down. We got home about 8:00. I tried to take the prescriptions to the pharmacy but they didn't open until 9:00. So I took DH home and he went to bed. I returned to the pharmacy and got his meds.I then couldn't stay awake anymore and slept most of the morning early afternoon.

I had some french toast sticks for breakfast, ice cream for lunch. DH was feeling better and made us a frozen chicken patty for dinner and I ate that with avocado.

Sunday - DH was feeling much better but he was still incredibly worn out so he slept on and off all day. I did laundry and cleaned some stuff in the house. I had toast for breakfast, cheezits for lunch and then I experimented with a pizza for dinner.

I ground up chicken and added flour and eggs and parmasean cheese and spread it out in a circle. This was the crust. I cooked it for 10 minutes and then took it out and topped it with pizza sauce, pepporoni, onions and mushrooms and cheese. This was a pretty tasty pizza. And then I ate ice cream.

Not a very good weekend, I'm glad DH is feeling better though.

Today DH is working first shift and we are going to the taco place I wanted to go to on Friday. It is a few towns over and I'm looking forward to tacos.

Photo of the Day. was taken on the way to the train station. We drove through some construction and the construction company moved the mailboxes from the side of the road and had them all planted in 5 gallon buckets from Home Depot so they could resurface the road when the mail boxes were. I just never seen this before and I thought it was pretty cool.

innerpeace on 07/23/2019:
Yes he does, the doctor thought it was elevated because of his pain and stress. It is never as high as it was in the ER that day. Thank you.

DH made a pot roast yesterday with baby potatoes. I did steam some brocolli to go along with it. Both DH and the girl had dentists appointments - DH one cavity - the girl no cavities - proud of her especially with her braces. I was looking at a photo from a year ago and the braces are doing their job.

The gril was having issues in band camp - one of the seniors is giving her a hard time about staying in step for the marching bad. She feels she isn't getting enough direction or instruction. I told her to ask the senior to show her out of the formation. The next time she tells her she isn't doing well - to respond with -this is my third day of marching band, how can you help me be better? And put it right back on the senior. I told her not to feel bad and that I hoped this girls attitude didn't ruin her passion for music.

I also referenced the fact that she was helping the sixth and seventh graders last year because she was more experienced than they were, she had to understand that she is again at the bottom of the experience level and she shouldn't expect to know as much or be as good as the others who have been doing it for a few years. I just didn't want her to get discouraged. She said she did like it though, so there's that. The next few days are supposed to be very hot, I hope the bad director has sense enough to not make them march out in the excessive heat. I will see her again next Wednesday.

Got to bed about 11:30 - a little bit late but sooner than normal.

B: cold oatmeal, iced tea

L; chicken salad, banana, crackers

D: TBD - I'm thinking of going to Boston Market

Photo of the day - a writing prompt -

Here I stand on this heroic pedestal
Chiseled and shaped by a great sculptor’s tool.
You may think of me as just a monument of some past war, 
Commemorating a dumb battle of blood, guts and gore.
But I represent all the soldiers who didn’t return home
Who fought for our country and died all alone.
Defending the rights of everyone around,
Following orders and not backing down.
All across the continents, and even in the USA
From the beaches of Normandy to the island of Midway
From the deserts of Iraq and jungles of Vietnam
Noriega in Panama and the atrocious Sadaam!
We go when called with no questions asked
Firing up the enemies and completing all tasks
We go and we fight to preserve what’s right
And learn from our mistakes in the dawn’s early light
We grow and we learn and become better men
So these awful wars won’t happen again.
So before you and others decide to tear me down
Because something I’ve done offends you now
Instead of erasing the past, look towards your tomorrow
Be kind, be nice and do all you can to prevent new sorrow
Both men and women never to be seen again
Who may even have been your own next of kin. 
I represent all the soldiers who did not return home
Who fought for our country and died all alone!

Have a great night! IP

Braces are indeed a wonderful invention! :) i had them for 2 years in high school and i'm so thankful for it!

I really love the first bit of advice you gave girl...great answer in response to someone saying she isn't doing well! i had a hard time also understanding the movements in marching band!

and also the rest of the advice you gave is good. it's def hard at first to move from middle school to high school level band very different!

it's crazy hot here too..luckily we are getting showers today which is making it more bearable for people who are working outdoors!

I got the girl...she wanted Chipolte. This is ok, but I think I'm tired of Mexican food for awhile.

It was a relaxing night, I swept and mopped the kitchen and dining room and kept my dogs company.

DH went to work early today because the frist shift guy was in a car accident - he works early tomorrow too. I told him to work Friday if he has too, that was our day off for our anniversary.

I left work, got the girl and went home, so no pictures were taken for photo of the day!

I left work and had the mind to make enchiladas, we had everything...except the tortilla. I made 5. One for lunch today, DH ate two last night and has 2 for lunch today. It was rather tasty though.

I surfed around Amazon looking for a big deal to get, but didn't find anything I was looking for. The girl wanted a new bathing suit with shorts so I was looking around for that for her. Both DH and the girl have dental appointments tomorrow. So the pyscho exwife is letting the girl spend the night.

She was emotional may be her TOM but she was crying that she didn't do well at band camp and doesn't want to go back. She said she was the only freshman and she felt out of place. No, not everything is supposed to be easy, but she thinks it should be.

I have this thing from my child hood - my grandmother would make us fritos and buttermilk. It is delicious, no one I know has even heard of it, maybe it is just a thing from my family. Anyway I hate that for dinner, fritos and buttermilk and then I had a scoop of ice cream. Not very nutitious be it was very satisfying.

Didn't get to bed till 12:30 - DH didn't get hom until 3:00 something, I know this because Rocco, jumped on my head coming back to bed and scared that crap out of me.

B: boiled egg, avocado toast, iced tea

L: enchiliada, banana

S: balanced breaks

D: TBD - have to get the girl tonight.

Photo of the day: The progress elephant.

I was able to purchase my ticket to go and visit my mom in Oklahoma the 2nd week in October, this makes me happy and I can't wait to see her.

Have a great day! IP

Progress as of today: 3.3 lbs lost so far, only 124.6 lbs to go!

ohhhh the dentist!!!! nobody likes the dentist, but, it's good to go!

dinner of fritos and buttermilk - wow, tasty!

i'm sorry for girlie, maybe explain to her that she can practice and do better. and that if she's the youngest it will only get easier and better. :) and if she wants to go to a high school with a band, then, this is like an introduction!

breakfast sounds great. where did you find your progress elephant?

I'm sure your mom will love to see you...i've been contemplating a trip for the Wintertime. we'll see if my friend really wants to go or not. I'm only going if he wants to.

Um... how did you manage to stop at 1 enchilada? Hubby ate only 2??? 5 enchiladas at my dinner table would be GONE.

i just took one out and put it in a container for lunch. I put two in a container for lunch for DH and he ate the other two when he got home from work. They were tasty and I could have ate more...but you know - it's all in the choices we make.
