Picked up the girl and she wanted Chipolte which is ok.

For dinner ate half of myChipolte bowl.

The girl left at 8:00, I took the dogs in and out.

Finally went to bed about midnight - this needs to change, will work on this.

Kind of over slept this morning up at 6:00 with enough time to shower and get to work. Not a lot of work to do today because...shutdown.

B: cinammon roll - this is all finished

L: left over chipolte bowl with chips, apple

S: belvita

D: meal replacement drink

This morning I think I have reached the absolute bottom - it is not a good thing when I can't even bend over to tie my boots. Time to get serious with this weight loss thing. Though I feel better by not drinking pop - I still just exist - not really living. And my face has exploded into a blemish pit from hell...I'm relating this to stress right now.

Tomorrow I have my diagnositc mammogram to ensure no biopsy is needed.

I have plans to stop by and visit my old boss at the university where I worked.

Have a great evening IP

Friday got the girl and went to her orthodontist appointment. We then go to the Disney on Ice - it was ok, probably won't ever go again, they are all pretty much the same. But the girl had fun. She said her mouth was kinda of sore.

Saturday - DH had to work, the girl had a friend over and DH brought home pizza.

Sunday - I did laundry, and cooked dinner (beef and brocolli, teriaki chicken and rice). The girl's mouth was still very sore - more sore than she thought it would be.

Monday - DH and I go shopping - moved stuff from a metal rack, baker's rack and microwave cart into the new cabinets. Here are the new cabinet additions - very happy with them.

BEFORE                                                                        New cabinet (left - added) - current cabinet (right) - color match


AFTER (the electrical outlet in the Before picture was moved up to be used on the counter top.

The counter top was measured today and will be installed in two weeks - this granit counter top will also be installed over the existing cabinets as well.

Also spent a good amount of time trying to get the new puppy to understand he has to go outside and potty!!

I call them Fat Man and Little Boy - ok just kidding - Steve (left) - Rocco (right)

I received a message from my boss to come into work for Tuesday and Wednesday

Tuesday - work

B: cinnamon role

L: chili cheese tots

S: belvita, balanced breaks

D: not sure yet

I have to get the girl tonight - no plans

Forecast is snow, snow, snow this weekend - not looking forward to it.

Have a grea night IP!

Love the cabinets! Do you find yourself going into the kitchen more often, just to admire them?

horn_of_plenty on 01/16/2019:
Wow you have a MASSIVE kitchen area with so much counter space and cabinets !!!! How nice !!!! So perfect since you love to cook!

I'm glad you got to enjoy the Disney on ice

Work today...

Lots of bills to process, that may or may not be paid.

Contractor showed up to install the cabinets...if not an exact match to our current cabinets, pretty darn close, I don't think someone who walked in would be able to tell they were not there before. Very pleased with this. This just makes me want to be the devil's advocate and go to that man who 'dismissed me' after I straight up told him he wasn't pressuring me into buying a whole new kitchen when he was adament he couldn't match my existsing cabinets...and you sir...just lost the $3500 sale for your store. JACKHOLE!

B: cheerios

L: teriaki chicken and rice, apple

D: let over chicken teriaki

S: belvita and granola cups,

Have a great night! IP

I bet the new cabinets will look so nice installed!

horn_of_plenty on 01/10/2019:
So one guy didn't want to do the work so he lost his own deal ?!,!

How dumb of someone to lose a deal Bc they don't wanna try ?! What kinda business guy Is that?!

But you are happy with your cabinets from a different contractor right?!

innerpeace on 01/15/2019:
Yes very happy. Back in October when the first contractor screwed us out of our money we went to a local big store National Design, the salesman there was just very rude. I told him I wanted to add additional cabinets. He says, ma'am I've been doing this for 27 years and you will not like just adding additional cabinets.

I was still mad at the first contractor stiffing me $2500 so I told him straight out, sir, I respect your 27 years experience, however, I am not interested in buying an entire kitchen of cabinets, please don't tell me what I want.

Then he slammed his hands down on the desk and told me 'good bye, we are finished here.' I got loud and asked him, you are throwing me out of your store because I don't want cabinets I don't need. Then he screams "YOU ARE DISMISSED - LEAVE THE STORE" this brings all kinds of people running over and then I'm telling him, I'm not leaving and then my DH jumps in and he says I can't talk to him like that because he's from Bulgaria. It was stupid.

But you can't tell...

Anyway, the first contractor did give our money back and we went to a different store to get our cabinets.

 Cabinets were delivered. Should start install tomorrow. I do get to go to work tomorrow for one day again.

B: cheerios

 L: pretzels

D: subway sandwich 

the girl was over.

The YA and stinky GF came over and stored some stuff in the basement. Didn’t ask where they are going to move. The YA did help me move the island out of the kitchen for the install.

Have a great night

Well I tried to stay busy today, but it still ended up meh.

Moved an old TV stand out to the curb for trash pick up. The kitchen cabinets are being delivered tomorrow.

Took the new puppy outside at least 15 times today...in the rain

Washed and folded two loads of laundry.

DH wanted a cake, tried to make this for him, however, it stuck to the pan and when I was getting it out it just crumbled all to bits. The second one is still in the pan and he can eat it if he wants it.

Face is breaking out....stress!

No word from work today, but I did see my boss on TV doing a tornado survey about two counties away. That's right...we had a tornado...in Ohio...In January, can it get more bizzare than that?

I was doing OK until DH started texting me about a stupid plan he devised on my behalf which pizzed me off. He asked when I went back to work....seriously??? I DO NOT KNOW! Then he says why don't you drive and pick up my sister (She lives near Dayton - we just visited her for a little bit when we picked up the new puppy) and then yall drive to Oklahoma and visit your mom and then drive to Texas and visit my niece and dad. uh...NO! Please don't make plans for me. First off....don't try and fix me! Secondly...I don't need to spend time with someone I don't really like. Miss one up herself. I could tell her I jumped out of 52 perfectly good airplanes (which is true) and she would tell me she walked through the Sahara desert barefoot with no water! I was almost killed in a car accident...but she died twice on the operating table. I don't have time for this adding 1600 miles to this. I can do without the one-up Chuck scenario in my life right now! AZZ HAT!! I told him to quit texting me.

B: English muffin, scrambled egg with ham and cheese

L: balanced breaks

D: ham and cheese pizza rolls I made, they were OK.

A piece of nasty carrot cake that fell out of the pan and left a bad taste in my mouth.

I did win tickets to go see Disney on Ice on Friday.  I will take the girl, DH has to work. They put him on 10 hour shifts and he won't be home.

I will get the girl tomorrow so she can come over and shower. Friday she has an orthodontist appointment and then we will go to the Disney on Ice.

Anyway, still plugging along. Have a great evening! or night! IP

Get to work this morning and everyone is like 'welcome back'...yes, like it was my decision to be gone. Oh well, I can only work for the day - can only do a few things, as everything is shut down. I can not come back tomorrow, and I will be told every day whether or not I can come in to work until this mess is resolved.

B: frittata

L: pb&j sandwich, balanced breaks

Peanut butter sandwiches were my undoing yesterday. Having the rest of the family finish off the jar of PB today so that it doesn't tempt me anymore.

Long, long, long night with the new puppy. But he has already learned to use the doggy door, this is encouraging....now, if he can just learn why to use it!!!

DH is already in love with this little puppy, Steve tolerates him and I haven't made up my mind yet...he's cute.

B: fritta which - fritta bun with a sausage patty, banna

Late lunch/dinner - left over beef pot pie

Snacks and snacks - gold fish and golden oreo cookies.

DH supposedly bought iced vanilla latte, but it wasn't the right stuff so that saved some calories.

We walked the dogs, or tried to, the puppy...never been on a leash, DH had a funny time walking this creature.

I do go to work tomorrow for the day, still furloughed though.

Hoping for the best.

Horn_of_plenty on 01/06/2019:
wow that is so strange. to go to work and be furloughed. will you get back pay this time?

where do you get the frittata bun or are they homemade??

innerpeace on 01/07/2019:
It is Jimmy Dean - the fritatta is the bun and there is turkey sausage patty in between.

Long day today getting the new puppy. It is always strange embarking on a journey you aren’t sure of the outcome. Rocco is already a handful.

B: cheerios

L: zebra cake

late lunch - 2 chicken strips, half of piece of bread

snacks in car - three pieces of peppermint bark and three pieces of gingerbread truffles

even with candy still under calories for the day.

have a good night! IP

Welcome home, rocco!

what's a zebra cake?

gingerbread tuffles!? who makes them?

great day for you, good job being moderate with the food!

can't wait to see a pic of Rocco!

innerpeace on 01/06/2019:
Little Debbie Zebra cake, it is a white cake with cream filling. Nothing good I assure you.

They are Lindor truffles, smooth and creamy.

Rocco is on Facebook and is driving me batty and Steve tolerates him.

Horn_of_plenty on 01/06/2019:
puppy looks great!!!

Donkey on 01/06/2019:
Message to Horn: Do a Google of "Little Debbie Zebra Cakes" - oh my, oh my... Not much of a lunch but oh so good.

I know...this is what traveling does.

graindart on 01/07/2019:
Just putting my down vote in on Zebra Cakes. The box always catches my eye when I'm walking down the grocery aisle and I always consider giving them another try. But then I remind myself of how disappointed the taste of them was the last time I tried them. It's probably been 4 or 5 years since I tried them, but distinctly remember them being a major letdown at the time.

Now the peppermint bark, that I could go for.

Glad you got the new dog home safely.

16 minutes to spare. I just completely forgot to post today, thought about it right after I laid down to go to sleep.

Friday was a lonely day at home. DH went to work and I sat. Think a little depression is setting in.

My boss texted me and told me to come to work Monday - it is time card day and I guess no one could figure out how to do time cards so I can go in and work for the day.

DH and I are going to Lawrence, KY tomorrow to pick up a new member of our family. It is another Toy Fox Terrior, we have initially named him Rocco, 16 weeks old. We tried to adopt/rescue one a few weeks ago, however, after the meet and greet we were turned down because the owner of the rescue farm felt our Steve was too fat and she didn't want to let us adopt the TFT she was fostering because she didn't think he would be in a good home. Seriously....she actually said this to us. Anyway, we will see what happens tomorrow. We are also supposed to stop by my sister-in-laws house outside of Dayton on the way back...not looking forward to this.

B: yogurt

L: PB&J, gold fish

D: beef pot pie

S: granola cups, yogurt

Have a great weekend. IP

Donkey on 01/05/2019:
Maybe the new puppy will help draw you away from depression. That and going into the office on Monday.

I still think that having a routine at home would help. I have a friend who works from home, and when her company was making the transition, I recommended that she still do her hair and get dressed -- not anything fancy, but not sweatpants or staying in her pajamas. She told me a couple of months later that really helped.

Come to think of it, my mom did this too when she was working for home.

Horn_of_plenty on 01/05/2019:
I think the dogs in the "terrier" family are adorable!!!! congrats on your new pup!

try not to get depressed. you aren't LOSING a job, just not going in. BIG difference.

i know it's a lot of changes to your routine, but it's more "you" time.

i'd be happy not going on. i'd be sleeping in late, doing more cooking...like you did with that awesome grilled cauliflower and cheese recipe that looks seriously amazing. right up my ally. i don't love (as you may know) to eat lots of cheese, but this type of recipe i'd be happy having bc cauliflower is so low carb that it just works well with the cheese...my mouth is salivating over that recipe!

Still ow work. kinda bummed its like I want to work when I can't but when I have to I really don't want too, so it is an evil web.

snacked most of the night, but didn't go over calories. I ate pretzels and gold fish.

B: 4 french toast sticks, 2 tbsps sugar free syrup

L: grilled cauliflower and cheese - this was delcisous - TASTY recipe from the book of face.

D: pot roast, carrots and potatos and salad.

takig the girl to a dental appointment.

and tomorrow is Friday. my boss said he would tell me tomorrow if I can come in on Monday. Of course I will because someone has to turn in timecards and I doubt those yahoos will do it...because they are so much better than that!

Anyway, I will take my attitude and go. Have a great evening. IP

i saw it on fb last night! OMG i want to make it also. it looks amazing. it's very filling and good for you all around. nice!

great eats on your menu! love it!

lol you know you are the "most reliable" office worker ;)

innerpeace on 01/04/2019:
It was very good. I added a little corn starch to help it stay together. I think next time I will boil the cauliflower to a soft consistency and try again. It did grill up nice though.

graindart on 01/03/2019:
Maybe get out of the house so your mind isn't fixated on work? It'd be different if you had any control in it whatsoever.

Get out of the house and go walk around the mall......twice.....without spending anything?

Donkey on 01/03/2019:
Try to stick to a routine, during the day, maybe, to keep your spirits up.

Horn_of_plenty on 01/03/2019:
If you can go somewhere, why don't you go enjoy part of the day like Graindart says. honestly, i'd be very HAPPY to have some time off work (as long as i'd be paid later!)
