Just some stuff I'm sure you're dying to know

Friday, January 15, 2010

Still don't have a PC, so Sparkin' from my phone. I'm getting pretty good at typing with one finger (haven't figured out how to hit the right letters with my thumbs). I'm also used to the phone filling in the right words and punctuation. Unfortunately, my PC at work doesn't do that and I keep forgetting to capitalize and put in apostrophes!! LOL!

I have a list of things that are on my wish list. They include a new holder for my I-Pod, a Return of the Mummies CD, a dishwasher and a fridge, not necessarily in that order. I have a place where I tuck any extra cash to put towards those goals. Since I just got my hair done (yes, it was on my list!),I was down to $10. BUT, I finally got reimbursed for my contacts that I got in October!! Now I have $110 and tomorrow is payday! I always "find" a little cash on payday! LOL! Looks like I need about $400 more for a good dishwasher. Wish me luck!!

Better cut this short. (or is it too late for that?) and head to bed. One more day until the weekend!

    Good luck with the list - I guess the dishwasher is the first item. I would go on with my own list, but it would look pretty slim besides Michelle's so I'm giving up on starting it! But I do wish you a good week end too and congrats on your typing-with-one-finger skill!

    Pretty good little wish list. Sounds like you've got a headstart on your savings. Where's the wish for a PC??? I see you want a fridge, a mummy, iPod case and dishwasher but NO PC????? Add that one in there, too!

My wish list:
1) A Ferrari.
2) $10,000,000 from Publisher's Clearinghouse.
3) For my cat to stop bringing dead mice up on the back deck.
4) A Lifestyle Lift to get rid of my baggy eyelids. (CAN'T SEE!)
5) A new pack of underwear.
6) To be invisible in Tom Cruise's dressing room.
7) A maid.
8) A whole box of Twinkies to myself.
9) A personal trainer to work my muffin top off.

Aw, I'm nice. emoticon

Nap, working out and dining

Sunday, January 10, 2010

Got up early to take the dogs to a grooming appointment. Forgot their shot records(oops!) so had to reschedule. Both DH and I came home and promptly fell asleep! After my nap, I went to the gym for a little over an hour. Then DH decided to take us to Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner. Yummy! I ate everything on my plate! Shouldn't of, but I did! LOL!

I'll be heading to the gym in the morning to help make up for it!

I was a Sparkin' fool today!

Friday, January 08, 2010

While the color was setting on my hair, my stylist and I started talking about weight loss and such. Since I had my I-Phone with me, I showed her the Spark People website. She really liked everything she saw. I sent her the invite to join, so hopefully she will. So much great information to find!

    That doesn't sound like a fool to me but a very smart person! Hopefully, she will take you up on it and she will join. I have someone I work with that kept complaining about her weight and I sent her an invite, she joined but I have never seen her again. What's with that? I guess it is a mind set when you are ready you are ready!

Yes, you are supposed to be picturing Sally Fields giving her acceptance speech when she won the Oscar...or whatever it was she won!

Thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes and Goodies! You all made my day even better! I'm still without an actual computer, so am doing all of my typing one-fingered! LOL! It definitely slows me down and I'm still trying to find new ways to get to my friends' pages.

Today I turned off the eating machine that took over yesterday. I did have a Diet Pepsi this morning, just one can. I was hoping to get a rush of caffeine to wake me up. No such luck. Oh well, at least now I know DP ain't gonna work for me like that!

Okey dokey...time for bed. Nite all!

Okay, I can talk now...and breathe

Tuesday, January 05, 2010

BSU won!!! TCU played a great game but BSU triumphed! Yippee! Deep breath! I was able to fall asleep within an hour of the game ending. No OT helped!

Tomorrow is my birthday and I'm treating myself to breakfast at McDonalds (I have a coupon!), lunch with friends and T-bone steak for dinner. Also going to get to the gym first thing to work off those calories!

I decided that I would break the Diet Pepsi addiction this year. The good news is that I've not had any DP yet this year! Five straight days! Maybe I'll celebrate with a DP! Or not! LOL!

Okay, time for bed so I can get up early enough to go to the gym! Nite!

    Happy Birthday again! Just wanted to say that in December I, too, stopped drinking Diet Pepsi. It has taken awhile to get over it, because it was such a habit, and I'm sure an addiction. Now when I drink one, I find I throw most of it away because it just tastes so darn awful! (Yeah!) I still wander around looking for something 'good' to drink as water gets boring, and I don't like adding citrus to it. So I've been drinking green tea during the day and an herbal tea in the evening. So far so good!
Enjoy your day!
