I had such a bad day at work yesterday, I almost cried when I finally got home. It was awful; I don't easily take blame for someone else's errors - I like things to be done well. When mistakes happen (and they do, and it happens to me too) it's understandable. What isn't acceptable or reasonable is to pick a scape goat to pin it all on. Especially one that covered whatever bases she could cover. Especially when it's me LOL.

So, Yeah. Bad day. No good, very bad.

But I got home and forgot about it for a few hours at least. Today doesn't seem to be going much better, yet, but I have faith that the wrongs will be righted. Or whatever. If not, water off my shoulders. It's all office politics anyways, and I never could appreciate this kind of crap.

We'll see what the rest of the day brings. I am silently "OM'ing" to stay calm. Suprisingly, it's working. Knock on wood.

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

Sorry that you had a tough couple of days..Man that majorly sucks when others botch up and put the blame on the innocent...Don't let them get the best of you <3

I hope the rest of the week goes much better--hang in there!

Monday! Yay!

I forgot to bring my glasses to work with me this morning, so my brain is fuzzy trying to focus on the computer screen and then focus again when I look away from it. Wierd.

So, in between blinking my eyes furiously every 5 seconds, let me tell you about my weekend...

I had Friday off of work, so Thursday night I did nothing and went to bed early.

Most of Friday was spent baking with a friend. And drinking too much coffee.

On Saturday I hosted a bake exchange/gift exchange with friends. We also cruised around town singing carols at people's homes. I wore my Santa hat and another friend had Elf shoes on and carried mistletoe with a bell attached to it LOL; it was pretty hilarious.

Sunday morning was spent trying to wake up. I got to bed close to 4 a.m. so it was pretty difficult to wake up in the morning. But I managed to start moving around 10 a.m. and within two hours I headed over to a trade show in town, where I purchased a cute raccoon toque for my nephew, and a few cupcakes to taste test. To top off the great day, a couple friends and I went out for lunch and I had buffalo chicken breast with ceasar salad - it was delicious!

I spent the rest of Sunday watching the last season of Being Human. One more episode and i'm all caught up. This is the only tv show i've found on Netflix that I actually wanted to watch.

So here we are, Monday morning. I've already divided the baking I received on the weekend into separate containers - one for Grandma, one for a friend of mine, one went straight into the freezer, and one that I brought to work with me. Hopefully I will only bring out the one at home when I have people over. That's the plan, anyways.

I still haven't thought about my to-do list for today, but there are a few things I know I need to get done, so I guess i'd better get going!

Have a good one!

Umpqua on 12/03/2012:
You are so lucky you can get by if you forget your glasses - I don't think i could make it down my driveway without crashing the car :P Sounds like you had a great weekend, good strategy dividing up those baked goods!

V on 12/03/2012:
LOL i can just picture you and your friends out caroling, I bet it was fun :)Hope you had a good day back at work!

My friend has been nagging me to watch Duck Dynasty for months now. Last night I finally got to watch an episode, & I nearly peed myself laughing!

I am having cable re-installed for the winter months. There are not enough books in the world to keep me from the boredom that winter brings. I miss tv, so i'm bringing it back, baby! It'll be wierd to have tv again, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity for high speed internet, full cable packages (movies, sports, all of it), and DVR for $19/month. That's for three months, & then i'll either choose a smaller package and continue with it, or cancel it altogether & go back to no tv. Three months will get me through the harsh winter months at least.

The major TO-DO for today is getting groceries. I wasn't able to get sushi for dinner yesterday (dumb restaurant doesn't open until 5pm & I had things to DO by then, man) so i'm going to aim to get it today. I made pasta with mushrooms & brussel sprouts for dinner instead.


Breakfast - coffee & creamer, 6 crackers & 1 slice mozza cheese

Lunch - something from the cafeteria again (yesterday it was a turkey sandwich)

Snack - i didn't bring anything... maybe i'll last until work is done

After Work Snack - 6 crackers & 1 ounce mozza cheese

Dinner - sushi (spicy dynamite roll & cucumber roll are my favourites)

Exercise - 30 Day Shred

Other - more cleaning, groceries, wash blankets

I am taking the day off from work tomorrow, so I may not post again until Monday. Have a stellar weekend my friends!

Progress as of today: 14 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 11/29/2012:
Great deal on the tv/Internet package! We cancelled our satellite a while ago but still do Netflix so I still get my TV fix, just in minor doses. I hope you have an excellent long weekend!

SarieJC on 11/29/2012:
Yey! 30 day shred is brilliant, I felt amazing last time I followed it. Today was day 1 getting back into it and I know if I can keep it up I will improve loads after a few sessions. Do you do any of her other DVD's?

V on 11/29/2012:
That is a kick ass deal for your bundle package..Just in time to tune into the last 4 episodes of "Jersey Shore" before it is all over :( I will miss my Situation <3 (don't judge me, LOL)

V on 11/29/2012:
P.S. are you doing anything fun and exciting on your long weekend? Have fun :)

inmorning on 11/30/2012:
RYC- I am with you and I can't stand the thing either, though that is starting to change. My husband bought it last year while I was away and I was really upset because he knew I missed my treadmill from when we were still in Hawaii and I felt like he was being a poopoo head but I honestly wouldn't have given it a second look had he not gotten it. I used to hate running too but once I got used to that, I came to love it. So, who knows, maybe you will learn to like too. Maybe while watching your tele shows this winter. :-P Have a great day and weekend.

Another good day in the books. The house is slowly starting to look decent enough for a get-together i'm hosting this weekend. I've been slowly working on it the last two days. The tree is up, decorations are up, presents are (mostly) wrapped and under the tree. The kitchen is half-a$$ed clean, next up are the laminate floors. Vacuum, dust, then mop and buff. Sounds like fun, huh?! Then i'll have to vacuum and air out the rugs in the kitchen and wash some throw blankets for the couch.

And then i'll break to make more strudel. But all this isn't happening today. Oh no. That's way too much stuff.

Today, i'll be visiting a friend, drinking coffee, and watching Survivor.

Cause it's Wednesday. And we've got to celebrate being halfway through the week!

I might even take it one step further and order sushi for dinner. O.M.G. I just started drooling.


Food - mocha, lunch at cafeteria, sushi? coffee

Exercise - 30 Day Shred

Other - vacuum, dust, mop floors; vacuum and air out rugs; dishes; get more water for cooler; put air in tire; make strudel dough x 3

About the insomnia - I have taken valerian root (at Umpqua's suggestion) and it works. I have also tried Alteril (at Sweetpea's suggestion and it's good, too. Hope you get some good restful sleep.

grannyannie on 11/28/2012:
Busy busy!! Have a great day!

RYC thanks! Should be a nice couple of days. It will be cold - mid 30's F, but I've got my Michigan long down coat so I'll be fine.

LifeInATeaCup on 11/28/2012:
mmmmmm sushi, I'm drooling too.... :]

And about the 30 day shred, is it good or do you find it too much or too time consuming?? I was thinking of starting it but I'm very pushed for time at themoment :)

liza36 on 11/28/2012:
Thank goodness it's hump day! Have a good one.

biscottibody59 on 11/28/2012:
Looks like your place is shaping up nicely for your weekend--good going!

Thanks for the comment and of course you are right. It is just hard to keep focused on that sometimes. I love have time to do a good cleaning on my place. Isn't it amazing how much better your mood/attitude gets when the place is clean?

Great day yesterday; got lots marked off the to-do list for the week.

I wish I could take something that would knock me out at night, instead of rolling back and forth and tossing and turning for half the night before actually falling asleep. I don't mean sleeping pills, either. Too bad hot milk and honey doesn't work anymore. Tried tea and milk and that doesn't work either. Any ideas?

Or just take a hammer to my head?


Anyways, whatever. I'll get some things knocked off the to-do list today as well, tired or not. Plus it's leg-waxing night. And depo shot day. So, you know, lots of things to look forward to.


Food - Mocha, extra coffee, sandwich, snack, chicken soup.

Exercise - 30 Day Shred

Other - oh, lots. post mail, doc appt, wax, wrap gifts, vacuum, call about command start.

I'd better whip myself into a better mood if I want to get this stuff done today.

Valerian Root is helpful for a good night's sleep.

V on 11/27/2012:
RYC yep I am off :) Yayyyy!!

getmebackto150 on 11/27/2012:
I know you said no sleeping pills, so I'm not sure if you would count this or not, but the supplement melatonin is all natural and works wonders occasionally when my sleep pattern is off and I need a good night's sleep. You can buy it in the vitamin section at the grocery or drug store. Its great!

grannyannie on 11/27/2012:
Good for you getting things done! I don't fall asleep easily either, but it's recommended that you stay off the computer for a couple of hours before bed (I don't!). I find reading in bed helps me go to sleep quicker but my hubby goes to bed before me and wouldn't like a light on, so that solution is out.

grannyannie on 11/27/2012:
We head out January 8th. It's not a commonly needed vaccine here as it's only for people who travel to certain countries.

biscottibody59 on 11/27/2012:
Hope you get a good night's sleep soon!

Umpqua on 11/27/2012:
Valerian root works for me - I don't take it often but it does the job. I've recently been waking up at 3:30/4 a.m. after sleeping soundly and not being able to go back to sleep - half a dose does the job for me.

I had a great, low-key weekend. I did not get anything accomplished.

Just saying.

After my hot stone massage on Friday, I went home and took a nap! The massage completely wore me out LOL, and I could barely keep my eyes open on the drive home. So I took a nap, then wandered over to grandma's to meet my cousin and her son.

Saturday morning I was up and watching my cousin's son kick some martial art butt. All day long. All. Day. Long.

Later we all wandered to grandma's for dinner - pork ribs, homemade potato fries and salad. And pumpkin pecan pie for dessert - wow, that was awesome. Grandma. Is. Awesome.

Sunday morning I was back at grandma's for brunch - pancakes, canadian bacon, scrambled eggs. I shouldn't need to eat for the rest of the week!

This morning at work I had my picture taken for ID purposes, and noticed some "swelling" going on in my face. Time to face the music, my months-long vacay from scheduled exercise is slowly killing me.

This is going to be a tough week, even without adding meal-planning and exercising to it. But that's okay. No one said it would be easy right?


Food - coffee with creamer, sandwich, snack, pasta and sauce.

Exercise - 30 Day Shred

Other - waxing legs; baking and clean the kitchen; phone about having command start installed.

And then collapse into bed. With the electric blanket turned to high. It's getting cold outside.

grannyannie on 11/26/2012:
LOL, I understand your all.day.long with watching kid stuff. Yea, when it shows in my face I know it's time to get serious! I'd like to eat at your grandma's house! :)

It's the most, wonderful day... of the week.

I am leaving work early today, using time from the meeting on Wednesday, and going online to check out all the black friday deals. Yesterday I found a blackberry playbook on sale and i'm so excited to pick it up!!! Then I have a deep tissue massage with hot stones. O.M.G. I can't wait for that. My back and my guts are hurrrrrrrting today... I think i'll have to get my depo shot soon.

There's also a hockey game tonight; but I don't know how i'm going to be feeling later.

My cousin and her son are coming down for a martial arts tournament this weekend; they are arriving later on tonight. I asked them if they could also bring a couple of puppies that our dog rescue needs to get from their town; if they're not picked up by someone, they'll be put down on Monday! So I think she'll bring them with her tonight - I wonder if I could keep them overnight at my house... hmmm. Such cute little buggers.

Busy weekend planned; lots of baking, watching martial art fights, grandma's cooking, visiting with family, grocery shopping, and cleaning.

May the force be with me. I need some extra help to get all this done.

We got another snow storm yesterday, which is just starting to level off this afternoon. Also got some sleet and rain along with it, so it's going to be fun to shovel after work today. If I even make it home with the car.

I must be stressed about something, or maybe just stressed in general, because my left eye won't stop twitching LOL.

I bought myself some grey nail polish the other day; can't wait to try it out - this is probably one of the only colours that i'd actually use on my fingernails. Most colours are relegated to toe status! This one is called Concrete or something like that.

Ghost Whisperer espisodes are slated for tonight; hopefully my friends won't mind a messy house. I still have a bunch of bowls in the sink from my apple strudel attempts. Plus I can't even find my kitchen table because there's so much stuff loaded on top of it. Oh well, not like they haven't seen it that way before!

Food - mocha, extra coffee during morning training session, sandwich, snack tbd, soup.

Need. Snack. Now.

I made my second batch of apple strudel last night. It turned out delicious! I'm so glad I don't have to keep perfecting the process, otherwise it could take me months to figure it out. The dough I made is good and thin when rolled out, and i'm only wrapping it once around the apple filling. It's pretty darn good anyways!

In fact, I ought to be careful to not eat it all before the baking exchange.

Got my hair cut yesterday, and now all the length I thought I was reaching is gone due to split ends. Oh well, I guess i'll have to take better care of my hair when i'm straightening it each day. I don't want to end up with a big ball of fluff on top of my head LOL.

I went to the hockey game, which we lost (gosh, it was painful to watch it), and finished the batch of strudel when I got home afterwards. Busy night.

Tonight I was going to go out for wings with some friends, but I forgot that I have an evening meeting :( so I guess no outing for me tonight.

But that's okay, because i'll likely have plans for the rest of the work-day evenings. I'll be pooped by the weekend LOL!

Food - mocha, sandwich, soup, strudel LMAO.

Well, all I managed to do yesterday was get a batch of strudel dough ready. I’ll attempt to use that up tonight with a fresh batch of strudel. Everyone cross your fingers for me - I really hope this batch turns out; there is a slim chance I won’t get to bake again until the weekend.

Today I am wearing some brand new sh!t k!ckers, and loving them LOL. I’m gonna go kick some… no, wait, I don’t wanna do that. I stepped out of my comfort zone a bit and, along with the sh!t k!ckers, I’m wearing a sweater dress and some leggings (actually, they’re yoga pants, but who’s looking?) so we’ll see how the day goes. Right now, I’m only slightly uncomfortable; hopefully that feeling will wear off throughout the day.

Food – mocha, apples & granola, macaroni & chicken, soup.

Hockey game tonight!

As for the boots I absolutely love them!! Just keep thinking how fantastic you look and I'm sure the comfort will follow! :)

I am sure you looked fabulous! You are the first other person I have heard call the boots that. I can't rememeber where I heard it growing up, but always think that when I see boots. :-)

biscottibody59 on 11/21/2012:
Hey there--I've made apple strudel from my grandmother's recipe--it's the kind where you stretch the dough until it's paper thin. It's a huge labor of love--haven't made it in years.

Hope you've having a good week!
