It's been another one of those weeks. I know you're tired of hearing all about how awful work is & how many hours I'm working. I know. This week as been like last week in that I've only worked about 5.5 hours of OT but let me tell you it's 5.5 hours too many. Not to mention yesterday was pay day & a lot of those OT hours went to help pay for all of the drug dealers & losers that don't have jobs. As of now I have the weekend off because all hell breaks loose Monday with us being less than a week from our "go live" date. I have a meeting at 9:30 & hopefully, when it's over I'll still be off this weekend. I'm even hoping to maybe get out of here around 3:30. Probably wishful thinking.

Since I didn't have an "official" Weigh In Wed. post, here it is. I gained 0.4 lbs. this week. I definitely didn't do good with my eating over the weekend & then I had BBQ Nachos Tuesday night at VooDoo BBQ. Since then I've done great. My workouts since Thursday are as follows: Friday I ran for 30 mins. Monday I ran for 34 mins. Tuesday I went to Yoglates. Wednesday I ran 30 mins. Thursday I went to Yoglates. I was going to run this morning but it was thundering & I didn't want to get caught in a downpour. I should've known better than to think it would actually rain since it was thundering. Not a drop. Oh well.

I'm very excited because last night I ordered my new camera! WOO HOO!!! Can't wait to get it. Of course that means I'll actually have to read the directions. As much as I love to read, I HATE to read directions. This is my first DSLR camera. I may have to buy one of those books for dummies. We'll see. I welcome any hints or tips!!!

Speaking of reading, I think it's time that I read a couple of chick lit books. I'm currently reading 2 James Patterson books. Yes, I know, not a smart move. The reason for this is that I read my Nook at work (at lunch)  but when I'm home I try to read some of the actual books that I've accumulated. I don't buy real books anymore but I do have some from friends in book club & my mother-in-law. When I read too many of these books right after each other I have nightmares. I generally don't even know I'm having them but I wake poor Dean up with my screaming. I think these books are also starting to affect my thinking. Yesterday I was at CVS & there was a guy in there that I thought was acting a little weird. Like lurking about, voluntarily telling the cashier that he was buying snacks because he was going to the movies to see Expendables. Then when I went to my car he was in a mini van & just sitting there. If you read any of these books you'll know that the guy doing all of the killing always looks like a plain, ordinary guy. That was this guy. You'll also know that vans are usually a staple for these guys. When I got home I told Dean that I got a really good look at the guy in case something happens I can help identify him. Anyone have any recommendations on some good chick lit?



  1. At least the James Patterson books go by fast! Here's hoping you have a night without screaming.

  2. I have been reading Barbara Delinsky. Read 3 I bought at garage sales this summer
    and when I finished them, I went to the library and got two more! I do that, though. Read one author exclusively for a couple months...then move to another! I don't usually read books that could give me bad dreams!

  3. Congrats on your new camera. I want your water bill! I don't know why our water bill is too hight, there are only 2 of us here. I hope you get to relax this weekend after working too hard again....Christine
