Sorry you didn't sleep well Cheryl. Me either. Kept waking up then had leg cramps this morning and woke up with a headache. Ugh... gonna be a looooong day.

Desserts are made and another load of laundry done. Now i'll just sit here and enjoy my coffee for a bit. Last shift today ! Yippee !

Getting roots done tomorrow. They are BAD. lol ! Can't wait to be off. Maybe I'll buy all my stuff for camping/Thanksgiving while I'm in town too.

Cheryl, I forgot you had mentioned that i'm LC and having to make desserts ..... no problem at all. I feel like a "light switch" flipped and I have no desire to eat anything not good for me ! They have been pigging out at work on chicken spagetti ( which i love ) and strawberry cheesecake ( a huge homemade one - which I love too ) and I have been eating salad with rotisserie chicken and ranch with no qualms at all Makes me happy !

I understand exactly what you mean but "a switch flipped" when you're in the zone. I've used the exact same phrase when telling my sister how easy it was for me to stay in the zone last time I was truly in one. I don't recall if I was doing LC at the time or what but she was struggling and I told her, "just flip the switch"! She didn't see it as being so easy.

Funny the dog is chilly! Can't please everyone, as they say. I am FREEZING today. Going to post about it on my journal. Enjoy your days off.

Yes, I'm in the zone And plan to stay there.

Last night there was tons of food and desserts at work. Was a good day.... Had ham, green beans and greek yogurt

Had a meltdown when I got home. Had stopped at Walmart ~~ was about the only person there, trying to get lots of the stuff I needed ( except the fresh fruits/veggies ) and got home at 2am..... house was dark inside and out.. and the garage door wouldn't go up !! All the doors were locked and the storm doors too ( of course I don't have keys to the storm doors ) I was tired and it was 41 outside and all I had was my little scrub jacket and I had groceries in the car........ I was not a happy camper.

We always use the garage door ! Called DH at work...... he ended up calling DS2 and waking him up ( I didn't cause he had to work this morning ) and he came and got in a window. Needless to say I was STRESSED..... it was 3am before I got in and then I got a shower and ate pork rinds, and a diet root beer and a Atkins bar !!! I guess when I get greatly stressed, I still turn to food. Lucky I hadn't eaten much all day.

I was pretty freaked out with the campers at the RV park next door - kinda afraid they might be awake and see me going around the house trying to find a way in with no lights and alone. I'm a big chicken in the dark sometimes.

Slept till noon ! Having coffee, DH has the fireplace lit..... Fixing to go get these hideous roots covered .


Hope you all have a Wonderful Blessed Monday ! So glad i'm off !

got my hair done. told her I only wanted the bangs trimmed but the ends needed it too, so I had her cut it shorter and she "stacked" it some in the back
DH doesn't like short hair, but it feels so much better and looks healthier too It's just under my jaw line so not so much shorter........

It was pouring down in town so I skipped the grocery store, will go tomorrow morning ! supposed to clear out some tomorrow, mainly need veggies/fruit and a few misc things...

Probably going to just make some taco soup for supper unless DH decides we should go eat somewhere.

be back later

I've been on your thread reading your two posts on and off for over an hour. I got up and had to take a hot bath after talking to my manager on the phone. It just felt like the right thing to do. I feel glorious right now.

HOW FRUSTRATING, what happened to you last night! I'll bet you hide yourself a key under a rock or behind a loose brick or something so that never happens to you again. I didn't know you had an RV park next door! That must be interesting at times. Would love to hear some stories, if you have any.

But seriously, being locked out of your house or car can be the most exasperating things in the western world. (Thankfully, these are the things we count as troubling. We are so blessed.) Anyway, if that's all you ate and drank after all THAT, you really ARE in the zone. I'd have been calling for a large pizza for delivery and been downing a six-pack. AND I'd have some chocolate waiting in the wings for dessert. (And a bag of cheese popcorn!)

So what actually was the problem with using the garage door when you got home? Was the battery to your door opener dead? I want to know WHY! (I'm definitely a "why" person.)

We want pictures of the new doo on the new you! My sister has that stacked-in-the-back style and it looks awesome on her. Makes me want to get it done myself. Just hate being tied to a hairstylist.

Speaking of moisture (aka: rain), we have some coming. But as unthrilling as that is, I'm ELATED it's going to warm up enough to make this a rain event. We've had Thanksgiving blizzards in the past. They aren't fun. In fact, I think one of the first Thanksgivings my sister Robin and her hubby Mike ever gave for the family was during one of those. I remember it well enough to remember it, and that's about as good as my memory goes.

I'm going to post this before I do something seriously wrong and lose it. Here it is! For better or worse. Have a lovely evening.

Your bath sounds lovely !

I had keys to the doors, but couldn't get to them b/c of storm doors ! We will definitely find the storm door keys after this. The spring had broken on the garage door, DH had someone come out this morning and fix it ASAP

No pics of hair, but it feels so good

Made soup and DS2 has been here with Snickers visiting with us. Chillin' after hot shower and soup in front of the fireplace.

Life is Good

Laura, you are the only people I know who actually lock their storm doors. I have a sliding lock mechanism on my screen door but I never use it. Actually, I hate those stupid screen/storm doors. Just requires that much more effort to carry your bags of groceries inside. But then again, I am not blessed with a garage so please excuse me as I grovel.

Enjoy your fireplace! Is it gas or wood? I have a natural gas "woodstove" in my duplex but the landlady won't allow me to use it. She hasn't ever even shown me how to turn it on. I think I'm going to ask her to show me asap. Tis the season!

Night. Deb, Love you, girl. When you going back home?

nope no pics. Yep, garage door if FIXED !

We have the glass storm doors with the screen built in between the glass .....KWIM ? We love them. We like the blinds open and open front and back door and leave storm doors so we can see out and have lots of light......we always lock them !

deb - sorry you still had to cut your own..... I came home and cut my bangs a little shorter......lol ! You are having a little fun being close to everything and I think that's great !

Cheryl, hope you get to use the stove..... it makes everything so cozy..........

relaxing evening.DS is still here........ hope you both have a great night !

Those storm doors sound so nice! Sorry about your applesauce screw-up. Hope you have fun shopping for the Christmas gifts and your tree. Hope you have a restful evening and catch up on your sleep.

I have to drag my can into work and I feel dead to the world. I took a single Benadryl early this morning, hoping to fall asleep again. It didn't work and now I'm feeling the full effect of it. I tried to get another girl to take this shift for me but she couldn't. The show must go on.

Ttyl.

Ugh .. My brother grilled burgers and I had 1 and 1/2 -- we didn't eat lunch just a snack -- and oh my gosh I have the worst indigestion !! Oh man , I had it with
Lettuce tomato and cheese dip -- no bun - but I am bloated and miserable :/

Wondering if it was the seasoning he used ? I always have tums but NOT today ;(
Yuck ... Hope it
Passes soon .. I am really queasy ...

Today was relaxing and a good end to the week ! Hope you all had a good day too

Off to hopefully get rid of this yucky Tummy !
Night !
