I just want to thank you all first for all the great goodies and warm comments you have left on my page, blog and feed.
I woke up feeling great and was looking forward to going in and working today. John drove me and I arrived 15 minutes early which was awesome. I had a chance to finish my coffee and get ready for work.
For the first few hours things went great, only one person knew it was my birthday but didn't say anything to anybody. That's OK!
After my lunch break things went down hill from there, It seems that this one person just couldn't let me be happy today. For what ever reason she had she had to try to make my day horrible. So I just shrugged it off and staid away from her.
Still it did bother me a tiny bit, I had a hard time. I tried to smile through it and I think I did OK.
When she left I was able to breath and relax. I made the most of the last hour of work. So at the end of my work day I felt better.
When I left I remembered that it was Midge's birthday today as well so I went and wished her a very warm happy birthday and she wished me a great one and gave me a hug. That made my day worth while. I even told her that I was going to wish her a happy birthday over the radio so that the other staff members could wish her a great day. She said go for it, so I got on the radio and announced it and she in turned wish me a very happy birthday. You know some people just can't let others have a nice day.
Well everyone got on the radio and wish Midge a happy birthday but not me. I don't count as one co-worker said over the airwaves. Midge looked at me and she felt my pain and said over the radio that that was uncalled for and so very mean cause I heard it all. That person said that she didn't care.
Well I will just leave it at that and I did. Not my problem if she wants to be this way. Don't know what I did to deserve this comment. This person has been friendly to me and was in a good mood today.
As I left, another co-worker came up to me and said "happy birthday" and gave me a hug. That all by it self made me feel so much better. I left work in a so/so mood.
Took the bus home but made a quick stop at Safeway's to get some creamo and a carrot cake made by Weight Watchers, only 80 calories and so yummy.
Came home made a cup of coffee and put a frozen pizza in the oven and waited until John came home from work to eat it. I only had one serving of the pizza and that was all I wanted, I did add shrimp to it for more protein. It was even better with it on and John thought so too.
After dinner we had the carrot cake for dessert and John teased me about putting a candle on it for my birthday cake. Didn't have any in the apartment so I appreciate the thought.
Now I am sitting watching TV and sparking with all you wonderful caring friends. When I read all your wonderful notes you really did put the special back in my day.
I even got a phone call from my BF five minutes ago. He is at the airport waiting to pick up his luggage and have his friend pick him up and take him back to his friends place so that he can get into his truck and drive one hour to his home and go to sleep. My poor babe is tired and didn't sleep well while he was away.
Now that he is back we will hopefully see each other tomorrow and celebrate my day all over again.
I am so glad that I was able to overcome some nastiness at work and not let it bother me so much and that my evening was very nice and quiet.
I did get a few more hours next week, still not enough but I am sure that I will get more once December comes and the Christmas rush happens.
John is hopefully going full time next week so that will help with the bills as well.
Any ways I am exhausted since I have been up since 6am this morning. I am going to sleep in tomorrow. No alarm clocks!
Have a great night and thanks for reading my blog tonight.

Alright Ladies and Gentlemen,
I did it and I am so very pleased, excited and proud of my self. I made goal weight!
I will back up a bit, Yesterday I weighed in and was 127.2 and I knew that I was so very close to my goal weight of 126 So being so close I wasn't upset, I was happy for once in my life.
I went to work yesterday and ended up walking over 27,000 steps in my eight hours shift, I was very busy and I kept to myself so the work and helping my customers went very well. No one bothered me. I wished that I had more days like this at work.
I know I will, I am showing the management team that I can do this job if they just tell me how and what to do and leave me to do it and get it done.
I got praised from one one the area mangers( who by the way is always to nice and helpful) She said that she has noticed that I am doing so much better is putting stuff away and doing things that needs to be done without asking.
I told her that I feel more confident in putting things away and I am a lot faster at doing so.
I came home happy,
I had lots of energy left over and needed to do some weight lifting and stretching so I did. Once that was done I notice that my knees, lower back and shoulders weren't sore anymore just my feet. I ended up doing some feet exercises like calf raises, scrunching toes in and out, lifting all my toes up and down and stretching them out.
Then I went to spark and sparks was down for maintenance, I forgot they were doing it. I thought that they were doing it the night before. Oh well doesn't matter I had everything done except for my blog.
So I am doing two in one.
Went to bed and slept awesome and woke up still a bit stuffy but the earache is now gone in my right ear and I am hearing a little from that ear so I know within another day or so my hearing will be fine. I hope.
I got dress in my workout wear and notice that my stretch pants were very lose, hmmmm. what's up with that.
So I went in undressed and weigh myself and found that I am now 126.6 today. Did I lose more fat, or is it just water that I had loss.
Well my scale has a muscle, fat and water measurement on it. My muscle weight is up 0.2, my fat % is down 0.5 and my water % is down 0.5.
So it means a little bit of both. I will be drinking more water today since my water % is very low. So if I am up a pound tomorrow I will know it is water weight and not fat.
I am doing the smiley happy dance, this is me
Today is my day off so I will be knitting it up and getting those two very cute alligators plus matching sweaters finished today and then I can start to work on the ginger bread house. I finally figured out how to finish the decorating of it. I am keeping it plain and simple.
I will post pictures of all.
I have no housework to do just figure out what to make for dinner. mmm What to make.
I think a nice piece of salmon with wild rice and veg. I will make a nice sauce for my brother. He is working today and needs a nice healthy home cooked meal.
We have snow on the mountaintop and lots of fog. So I told my brother to drive slow and safe he will. He is very lucky cause he just got his snow tires put on his truck last monday, They did the switch over for free because of all the work they did on the truck and the car. They are also giving him two more tire change for both vehicles so save him a tiny bit on money and to keep him as a customer.
Plus John is now working full time this week and it may look that it will be full time from now until the skiing seasons end. They are planning on opening up the resort by this weekend if they get enough snow up there. John is very happy and so am I.
I just pray and hope that when I go into work tomorrow that I find that I have more hours too. That would be awesome and a nice Birthday gift.
Yes it is my Birthday tomorrow. I will be 48 years young. Where did all these year go and how fast they went. I can't believe I will be that old. Yikes.
Any ways here is my plan for my day.
Work from 8am to 4pm, take bus home, make dinner for myself and then watch some taped shows like Biggest Loser and DWTS. Light a vanilla candle and celebrate with some knitting.
Since both John is working and my BF is flying home late from his trip, we are hopefully going to go out for dinner to celebrate a belated Birthday.
That will work out fine, Waiting two days means I get to celebrate my BD again. and I can get dressed up and show off my new figure.
You all have been caught up to date with my life.
Thanks for visiting SandraLand and thanks for the early wishes and goodies. I am still trying to get to your pages to say thanks, if I don't please forgive me. I have so many emails and messages to get though. I have been getting a lot of junk email and have to go through them one by one so that I won't delete something that I need to reread or keep.
and best wishes for a great week.

Well after tossing and turning last night I finally feel into a restless sleep. Kept having weird dreams about strange people that I don't know or haven't met yet! So by the time I did get up I felt off. Not my usual self.
I was sluggish, had an headache and body aches n pains.
Oh no! So I took a Cold X and did a 60 minute walk it out with Leslie Sanson to shake of this feeling and to tell myself I am not getting sick.
I ended up getting a bad sinus headache and congestion, ear ache and dizziness so I headed to the clinic and found out that my ear infection is back along with a sinus infection. So now I just have to ride it out.
I am so thankful that I have today and tomorrow off I can rest, relax, drink more fluids and knit.
My body is run down from not having enough water in me. I am very dehydrated as the doctor tells me. I know and I told him why.
He suggested a few tips on drinking more water at work. I should drink a cup before I start, sneak in a small drink when every I can through out the day and drink more on my breaks. Chew on some mints to keep my mouth wet.
So I have bough a very small juice container and will fill it up a work using their Brita Water and keep it behind one of the cash desk that we don't use.
I can walk over there bend down and drink my water when ever I get a chance. Hopefully that will work. Management shouldn't stop me from drinking water on the job, if they do it will be another reason to look for another job.
My health and welfare is so very important to me and now that I am on antibiotics I really need to drink the water so that I can get rid of this infection and be healthy for work.
Any ways today I did get in 8 glasses of water with only two cups of coffee so that is great. Tomorrow I am going to drink more water and only one cup of coffee. I need the coffee so that I don't get a with drawl headache and be mean.
My BF left from his trip tonight and won't be back until after my birthday this week and John is working all week. So no Birthday celebration for me until BF come home from his trip and remembers to take me out.
I won't be reminding him, If it happens great, if not so what.
John will be taking me out for dinner when we have the time and when we are both not working different hours.
I have a free Birthday coupon to use at Red Robin and I need to use it before the 24th of this month. I am looking forward to this meal eating out and not making dinner.
Well I need to get to bed to rest and get better so I will see you all in the morning.
For once I am so glad I had my hours cut and have four days off to get better. Someone up there is looking after me.
Once this cold/infections goes away I will be even better for the Christmas Holidays and can work more.
See you all tomorrow. Wishing you all a great night, Sweet Dreams.
I know I will be better soon so don't be sad or upset that I am sick again. It won't last.
