I wish I had a healthier relationship to this site. it all starts to fall apart when I log in and get TWO lousy points for logging in. And then there's the robotic admonishment you get when you don't obey the guidelines (oh you exceeded your sodium by 1 gram!!) . Did I mention how tough it can be for me to some days even approach 100 points let alone crack 100 points ? I guess its partly because I want to crack the 100 000 point mark this year. I am not even sure why - its not like you can buy anything with the points anyway. I sometimes wish some things were easier on this site like if it were less time consuming - I find I waste a LOT of time recording things when I could be living. I find that for myself I don't know how I will feel after I get my 100 thousand - I often feel let down as I always think that as soon as I get this or accomplish that my life will be BETTER and then the disappointment of reality sets in.

    I agree. You are learning things by getting the points and helping your goal of having a healthy lifestyle. And setting an example and helping others. I try to keep that in mind.

I didn't sleep all that well last night and then someone in my household decided she was going to get up at 4 and make a bunch of noise (2 legged person- I can forgive the 4 legged ones easier they can't tell time and they generally seem to be more obedient- that's the trouble with adult kids they seem to want it BOTH ways).
But I still went to work. Thank God next Monday is Victoria Day.

    My hubby and I sometimes keep each other awake and our son wakes us sometimes too. I guess it's a necessary evil when you live with others. Much better than being kept up by the neighbors. LOL.

Saturday, May 12, 2012

just bagged

Thursday, May 10, 2012

I am glad I took some advice and booked tomorrow off. In four days I feel like I worked 6 (of course SP and weightlifting after doing on and off physical work for over eight hours doesn't help). My wife is really sick. I don't know if I should take her to the doctor as she isn't feeling any better. I am too young to be a widower.

    I opt for the doctor. They usually can help in some way. I hope she feels better soon.

    Hang in there. If your wife is still sick I would get her to a Dr. You will both feel better knowing what's going on! Good luck!!
