I know...corny title, but I had to do it! (Evil Barbara made me! LOL!)
I shut myself in my bedroom with the presents, the paper, tape and labels. I added a soda and watched the movie "The 12 Men of Christmas" while I wrapped. Got everything I've bought so far wrapped and under the tree. AND, I put everything away.
Just gotta figure out what to get the in-laws. They don't need anything and they buy anything they want. But, if we don't get them something, we are properly expressing our love. Wish me luck!!

Okay, so there was a tiny little pop and a quick flash of light. But it did surprise me and my curling iron was not working anymore. Being the practical woman I am, I unplugged my curling iron (in case there was a short) and finished curling my hair before all of the heat dissipated from the iron! LOL! Hey, it was hot, my hair was striaght. What else should I have done?
Anyway, as I was heading into work, the enginerdy part of me took over. I thought "Since the curling iron is ruined anyway, I can take it apart and see if I can fix it." Yay me! I like taking stuff apart and seeing how it works. Worst case, my curling iron still won't work and I'll get the chance to see what a curling iron looks like on the inside. Best case...I fix my curling iron! Not really counting on that, but hey, it could happen.
After I get home from the gym, I go to take a shower and turn on the radio so I can rock out to some tunes. My radio doesn't work. Hmmmm. That's the same outlet that my curling iron was plugged into. Push reset...reset won't push....hmmmm. Go to the other bathroom (it's on the same circuit) and test my daughter's radio. It doesn't work. Hmmmm...push reset again. This time it pushes, but still nothing works. Hmmm...sounds like a fuse popped. So I send the kids out (messy garage, lots of climbing involved) to check the fuse box. The find the right one, reset it and VOILA! My daughter's radio turns on. I go into my bathroom and plug in my curling iron. It worked. Dang it! I don't get to tear it apart! Bummer...
Maybe it really will explode tomorrow! There's a happy thought! LOL!

I walked into a royal mess at work today. Okay, so it wasn't really a big mess, but the boss' boss' boss got involved, so it got to be a LOT more important really quickly. I spent the entire day getting our story straight to tell folks outside of our department. Because of the timing, I didn't have lunch until 2:00 (breakfast was at 7:00!).
I did eat an apple and string cheese around 10. Then I started getting hungry and really had to wait for an answer before I could eat my lunch. So, I ate my carrots while I was waiting. And I had five peanuts. When I finally made it to lunch, all I had left was a sandwich and I was HUNGRY! So, I bought some chips. But I did good...I had the Baked Doritos not the full fat ones that were calling my name!
Came home, made dinner and very purposely used the small plate for mine. Ate that and felt like having a cookie. I logged all of my food to see how many calories I had left. Seventeen. No cookie worth eating has only 17 calories.
So, I did not eat my cookie. BUT...I was in range for calories today!! First time in five days! So, neener neener stress! I won! Bring it on!! No, wait, don't bring it on. I will retire victorious! LOL!

Today is my little brother's birthday. We were born in the same year...me in January, him in December. So, for a little over one month, I have a twin. I sent him a note of congratulations...not everyone gets to be twins with me! LOL!
Off to bed so I can get to the gym in the morning....AGAIN!!! Man, I hate that I tell you all that. At least, I hate it at 4:00 in the morning. When I'm done, I don't mind so much! LOL!
