when you've eaten like a horse?
Let me preface this "story" with letting you all know that this week has been really long. My boss irritates me, my husband took four days to wash the dishes (another story for another day), I didn't get enough sleep and I'm really tired of carpooling. So, I decided to treat myself to lunch out today. I usually pack lunch, breakfast, snacks and make sure I have enough to not be hungry and stay in my ranges.
I was so tired last night that I didn't want to make my lunch. So, I went to lunch...at Jack in the Box. They have some healthier options. I did not choose one of those. Noooooo, I waffled between the Ultimate Cheeseburger and the Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger. I ended up without the bacon. Not because it saved approximately 200 calories, but because it saved my 40 cents...plus tax. Oh, and I had fries (with ranch for dipping, of course) and a 32 oz cola. Diet, of course! Balanced out the calories there - right? LOL!
After lunch, I went to the lab to x-ray some parts and started talking to one of the ladies in there. She asked me if I had lost a significant amount of weight (yep, 60 pounds from highest weight) and asked if I had had surgery to do it (nope). She told me that I looked really good and was impressed by how well I had done.
So, yay for the compliment! (Yes, I said thank you!) But...I had just had a full day's calories in one sitting! What kind of example is that!?!?! AND, I had pizza for supper! I felt a little guilty about making the unhealthy choice but I REALLY enjoyed sitting in the sun, reading my book, eating some very delicious food. Back on track now. The scale tomorrow will be registering water weight only....LOL!

Okay, so it was a blast. We did lose, but only by 2 runs. I played catcher (as usual) and had a blast heckling the other team. They laughed too, so I think they had fun too. One guy came up and started filling in the hole at the plate. I started a fake cough, just to give him grief. The next time he came up, he filled in the hole again, but this time he coughed!! LOL! They had three lefties (I know, three!) I told each one that they were on the wrong side of the plate. The third one, I was like "Didn't they teach you anything in baseball camp!" LOL! Yes, they all laughed...at least at the plate, they did.
One guy was a really big hitter. I told him it would be okay to be the third out (by striking out, of course). I let him know that he would be a hero if he did...on our team. He caught on pretty quick (no dust on him!) so I pouted and said "Don't you want to be my hero?" LOL!! It so totally didn't work. He got another nice hit....Oh well. I gotta try!
So, Juiced (yeah, that's our team name) has a perfect record...we have lost every game! Yay TEAM!! The good news, it's fun. I'm loving it, even if we don't have a W next to any game....yet.

So, with the new position being filled by "John" (see earlier blog), there is a hole in one of the two groups that works together. The powers-that-be have decided to take this opportunity to do a full re-org. I am sooooo hoping that I get a new supervisor out of the deal. My current one is a micro-manager and I have trouble dealing with that.
Wish me luck. Should only take "two weeks" which in corporate speak means no one knows when. I'll hold onto the hope until they dash it!

As I've mentioned before, DH and I take the dogs for a walk every night. The boxer is a puppy and has TONS of energy. If she doesn't get her walk, she's just like a little kid on sugar.
Tonight, DH asked if I could walk the boxer and have one of the kids walk the little dog. He has a blister on his bad foot and didn't think he should push it by walking again tonight. No problem. Daughter and I take the dogs for a walk.
Now, the rule is (at least for us) if your dog poops, you scoop. As a rule, the sheetzu/papillion mix (sorry for the spelling, don't know how to spell one and the system doesn't like the other one!) poops every walk. Yep, he's the one I generally walk. Today, daughter walked him since he is smaller and easier to control. Yep, you guessed it, the boxer pooped almost at the beginning of the walk! Aargghhhh!!! I scooped, but then I had to carry a bag full of smelly, squishy poop to the next trash can. Ewwwwwwww!!!!!
Tomorrow, it'll go back to "normal" I'm sure...

There is some "reorganization" going on at my work. One of the bigger changes (at least recently) is moving a packaging group back into Assembly (my department). They announced one of the new "heads" of the group last week and said they would announce the other one this week. In my head, I said "Oh, that will be John (not his real name). He has had the experience they are looking for." Remember, I thought those EXACT words (or close enough) LAST week.
So, this week, I hear that John got the job. It's not official, but that's "the word on the street" and the street has been pretty accurate lately. So, am I pretty stoked that I was right? Do I pat myself on the back for being so smart? Um, no. I'm depressed cos it wasn't me! How dumb is that!??!?!?! I know, knew, every tense of the verb know, that it wasn't going to be and that I wasn't even considered. And yet I'm bummed that I didn't get it! Intellectually, I get it. Emotionally, not so much. Sometimes it sucks to be a girl...
