I survived my first shift. I didn't take any orders so I didn't get tips today, but that is OK. I learned to do a lot, like cleaning of the bathrooms, (ok that wasn't too difficult and it was all self explanatory.) I made salads for the guests, and did refills on pop. I did dishes and restocking. I hope come Friday, that I will be comfortable taking orders, and get to bring home some tips.
I feel like I'm going to like working there and that is important.
If you work a shift where you get a break, you are not paid for which is completely fine, and you are allowed a free meal. Which is probably not going to be a good thing for someone who is trying eat right. I can have salads so that also works out. Either way, I left my shift today feeling great and proud that I am doing something of a job again.

Today, I spent a great deal of my time with my best friend Anddi. We planned on going Geocaching youtu.be/-4VFeYZTTYs Sadly, after we ran a few errands for her, by the time we were ready to go the sky's were getting dark. We figured we could one cache in so we went to this one at Kennedy Park in W. Saint Paul near her house. (all that we were going to go for were near her house) We arrived at the park and BAM we could hear THUNDER =( but we still ventured out, We threw in the coordinates on the devices we had, (my phone and my nuvi 205)
We were there for about 30 minutes when we couldn't take it anymore, the mosquitoes were too much, in the humidity and the rain was getting a little harder and making it's way threw the canopy of trees so we had to call it quits.
So we went back to her place, and watched Alice in Wonderland.
Sometimes you just need a day to spend with your best friend!

So, yesterday after everything, I made a point to do something to de-stress my mind and my body. So, I went and laid down by the pool, put on my Mp3 player and just cleared my mind. It is one thing I can do is lay in the sun and just let my mind stop thinking. Granted music is a great for a distraction as well. After just under 2 hours of laying in the sun, I feel better. I feel better today as well.
I don't know what it is about the sun, that my body craves. I know the risks and all that but yet when summer is around that is one thing I want to do. I hate being sweaty and hot, but I'll deal with that if it means I can have a few minutes of solitude in the sun.

Yesterday, I checked my bank account just to make sure I had the amount that I was suppose to so I could get a few things at Target. To my surprise, that isn't what I saw. What I saw, was my health insurance once again took the premium. This time there was money but that money was already to go out for 2 other bills, which included my CAR INSURANCE!! so now those bills are either bouncing or was paid, and I have no idea, yet. I so want to now cancel my health insurance since they never listen, yet I have a bill for the rest for July, through Oct.. I won't and don't have the 415 for it so I don't know what is going to happen yet I have a lot to figure out. =( Plus I have to wait now to find out what happened to my car insurance. So when I found this out last night, I not only was SAD, I was furious and it took a lot of self control, from not screaming, breaking my laptop and punching something. So, I went and cried in the bedroom because there was nothing I could do. Later Derek distracted me, with the cat, and laid some money by me to help the situation but I didn't want to accept but I eventually did. It didn't cover it all but it covered a very good portion of the negative funds just not the fees. The bad thing was is that I was settled and ready and on track again with the money part but now I don't even have money for gas once again.
I don't start my new job until the 14th =( This week was shortened hours, and next week the manager who is training is on vacation. So I start the 14th, and I am scheduled for the 16th which is a Friday so hopefully I'll be on my own then so I get the tips.
I've been great with exercising this week, maybe not eating so much but I've done pretty great with exercising. So that is good. I just want this week to be over so I can try and forget that at times I just can't handle everything and I have to just let it go.

So far so good. I'm back on track and doing well. My thighs are soar from a lot of lunges I've been doing from the exercises but they are well and good.
I didn't do a lot for Derek yesterday, he worked and than we went to the grocery store. I hate that place it's no fun. This morning though I got up earlier than him, and made my grandma's Swedish pancakes. YUM YUM, it's a panakuken bake with bacon and bacon grease. I know with all that you thinking why would one even make that when they are on a diet. I know but I don't make it too often and D loves bacon. So I made it and calculated it. Won't be eating a lot of foods with fat in it for the rest of the day but that's fine. It didn't turn out as well as I had hoped. The pan I had was too big so it was very flat (flatter than it should be at least) but it was still yummy.
We are going to go to a park and walk and maybe have a picnic but since we ate breakfast late I don' t know when we are going to go.
Tomorrow I have cinnamon rolls for him, that I plan on baking and later we are having dinner at his parents. Thursday is his real birthday so he will get his present. When you don't have a lot money you have to do other little things for him which I don't think he is use to. He is use to getting presents and usually expensive ones from his family, but he gets it that is things I do. I think it's always more special anyway then just going out and buying something since anyone can do that.
Can't wait to finish up today because it's gorgeous out and not to hot .
