Here in Southern Idaho, we have had a fairly mild winter. Since I live in a valley (and other meteorological things I don't pay attention to), we generally have very mild weather. But, we do have all four seasons. At least we DID...until this year.
I swear that I am sitting in my house with jeans, a long sleeve tee and a sweatshirt and I'm still cold! (Of course, the heat is turned off, but don't get into the details!) Every softball game I've gone to for DD, I've worn at least two layers (usually 3 or 4), taken at least one blanket and still been cold! High today, 51. I should be complaining about the heat by now!!! LOL!!
This weekend, highs in the 80's. I am not complaining about that. I am complaining that it is going to jump from 60-something to 80-something in three days. Why can't it jump in one day instead? I want to be warm!!!!
Okay, I'm done whining...well done whining about the weather....for now!

Today, I was "invited" to a meeting in my boss' boss' boss' office. Of course I was there to explain why things were not perfect and to receive all of the action items.
The part that bugs me is that one of my action items was to develop a timeline for Project A. The only problem is that Project A, which I thought should have been mine from the outset, was given to someone else a few months ago. Now, I am being asked for that timeline.
So...I asked the "owner" of Project A for a timeline. And yes, I put his boss on the e-mail! Okay, so his boss and my boss are the same guy and I really don't expect to get a timeline from him. BUT, this is a subtle (or maybe not so subtle?) "told ya so!" to remind folks that this technically isn't my project! I expressed my displeasure of having this project taken away from me at the beginning. The reasons for assigning it to "him" were given and that was that. Good thing I've been "helping" all along, huh?
The best man for the job is a woman!

Started the day by sleeping in. Any day that starts by sleeping in is a good day! DH made breakfast and I ate it! LOL! After breakfast and reading the Sunday paper, I headed out to the stores. Bought me some socks, DD a new makeup bag, DS a binder for his Pokemon cards and food for everyone! The best part was I got to go by myself!
When I got home, had lunch and then started cooking up a storm. Made sweet pototo fries, buffalo chicken and potato soup. As soon as I'm done with my pushups (two more sets!), I will start the steaks with mushrooms and onions. After dinner, I will be heading to the gym for my cardio. Then a shower and some plain old couch potato time before heading to bed.
Hope all you mothers out there had a great day as well! And, if you're not a mother, hope you called yours and also had a great day!

I decided that during this one-month challenge/goal/whatever that I set for myself, I would allow myself one cheat day a week. That one day would be the day that I could eat as much as I wanted of whatever I wanted. Today is the first cheat day. And did I ever cheat!
Breakfast was pizza and Sun Chips. Then I had a Fiber One bar with peanut butter on top. Then a bagel with more peanut butter. Then chips (Ruffles) and onion dip. Then DH took me out to dinner. Mexican. Chips and salsa, beans and rice plus my entrée. AND, on the way home, we got candy...Reese's Pieces for me! Oh, did I mention the margarita and the Hornsby's I drank too?
Did I also mention that I feel really sick right now? Too much food. Too much work. Not enough sleep. I will totally remember this feeling as I work through week two so I am not *too* tempted during the week. I also need to remember this feeling on my next cheat day so that I don't cheat quite so much. BTW, I enjoyed EVERY bite!
On a slightly different note, I did get my water in (12 cups so far and about to drink more) and I exercised! AND, I get to sleep in tomorrow! Before I go grocery shopping...by myself. Happy Mother's Day to me!
