Lovely Saturday

Saturday, January 12, 2013

yes, yes. I know. I am running late. But I had a HUGE project in mind when I decided to take the Christmas decorations down this weekend.

But, since my word for this year is: Stewardship, I decided that I had to take things well into hand, once again.

The last time that I did an inventory/sort of my Thanksgiving/Christmas decorations was well over 12 years ago - before we moved to this house.

Plus, I have become lazy about getting all the boxes up from the basement every year.

So, I asked my middle daughter to help me. She is bringing boxes up from the basement, and I have carved out some space in the family room to take all things apart, inventory, and repack them in smaller moving boxes. I expect to go from 6 large boxes to 12 medium boxes.

Meanwhile, I am getting some good walking in, going between boxes!

Nutrition Seven

Friday, January 11, 2013

OK. I am going to post my seven-day nutrition report (first time!) 11 January 2013

Calories: met range 4 times, under range 3 times
Fat: met range 5 times, under range 1 time, over range 1 time
Protein: met 3 times, under 4 times
Carbohydrates: met 4 times, under 3 times

However, I was within the range on EVERYTHING on a weekly basis. Ever so barely on protein. WHEW!

Friendly Friday

Friday, January 11, 2013

Today was a good day at work. Although I had only one court hearing, I was able to spend some quality time with my legal assistant. We worked through some procedural matters, discussed how to approach a routine problem, and celebrated a few successes.

That is, I think, a very good thing!

So far, I am doing well on exercise, food intake, and attitude today. I did, however, have one of those weird "heavy tired" events on the way home, and decided to take a nap when I arrived home. Thus: dinner is NOT simmering on the stove, yet.

Full day

Thursday, January 10, 2013

WOW. This was a very full day. Our elected prosecutor is in another county running a murder case from our county. Change of venue was required.

That left me, essentially, alone. However, since the Common Pleas judge is also the judge in that case, he also was not in county today.

Whew! I had 16 hearings. And got out of work at 5:30 pm. Only 1.5 hours after usual.

Food intake today: good!
Exercise (walking): fair!
Attitude: Good

Moving onward.

Three nights

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

My daughter, Laura, and I have spent three nights in a row taking care of sick cars.

We brought the Caddy home tonight. She is not wholly well, but better. I have to make serious plans to have her engine rebuilt. Meanwhile, I will treat her with the proper fuel additives.

The van will not be home for a week, but she is being taken care of, and the prognosis is good.

I am so thankful that the Sebring was available and runs well.

And I hope that all you the Sparkpeople cars are doing well, too!

    I have one sick car that reads love but the "medication" costs too much.

    I traded my car in a couple of months ago in order to have a reliable one.
