A Long Time Didn't Last Long

Monday, June 15, 2009

I said last week that doing split shifts was over for a very long time...boy...a weekend sure just doesn't seem like a long time...much less a very long time...uhg...but...the good news is, that the other office girl is going to cover Tuesday & Wednesday night...so that helps...alot... so on my mini break from work, i ran to walmart for some really good prices on fresh produce... $3.50 for a watermelon...wohoo!!! then ran to bank, and home for some computer time before going back into work... hopefully, with it being Monday, it will be a short night.... hey...a girl can hope...lol...

    Glad you won't be working the split shift whole week, that too on a moon light shift!! Love watermelon too...as long as they are seedless! We have no Walmart that sells fresh produce or too many groceries. Only thing they have beside the usual department store stuff is bakery items! emoticon

    I LOVE WATERMELON!! Sometimes I wonder if it's possible to each too much watermelon because once I start eating it, I can't stop!! Enjoy!

May As Well Laugh

Friday, June 12, 2009

To say this week has been rough...would be an understatement. Anyone who reads my blog, or even just my good mornings in my teams, knows this. But on the up side...i have also made sure to laugh through it all...of course...i think it's just cause at this point, i am getting slap happy... lol. The other day at work, a driver asked me where i would like for him to put his paperwork...at this point in the night...i really was not in the mood for that kind of open question...and told him that he might want to not ask me this or i might just really tell him... so last night he comes in and tells me he is putting the paper work over there cause he was too scared to ask me where i wanted it...lol... luckily he could laugh at my crankiness. Then, work was like...omg...hot...my boss is always cold, no matter what...and thinks that everyone should feel this way...i on the other hand, am total opposite... so i told him, the temp gets turned down...NOW!!! he said no, he didn't want to see his breath...i told him that if i had to work this shift, along with my own mind you, i wasn't going to sweat through it. he said he was cold so it was staying up...i said fine, but i would probably pass out from the heat...in which we both get into a fit of giggles, i could imagine him saying, and told him this, that i still had work to do and didn't have time to pass out...he said he would be making someone get my time badge and clock me out...since i wouldn't be working and all...lol...we were still giggling about that today.

luckily, tonight should be the last time i do this for a very long time...and i am soooo looking forward to getting some real sleep...i knew i was tired yesterday, when i was coming home from 1st shift and it was too bright out to see well...and...uh...it was rainy and overcast emoticon do you know how silly i looked with sun glasses on?? lol...

Sorry-Will Be Disobeying Orders Tonight :(

Thursday, June 11, 2009

Neeta & MissBear...i apologize now for my disobedience...believe me...it's not by choice....

For all those that are wondering what the heck...lol... This week has been one heck of a week for sleep...Sunday night the apartment was too hot for sleep...by the time it cooled down enough, and my body was tired enough...it was already 10:30pm...and i get up at 3:30am...so Monday night...i'm ready...i get to bed on time...except the landlord decides at 8pm, that it's a good time to mow the lawn...and weed wack...which he never does?! by the time he is done and i'm ready to doze off again...girls (dd2 and dn) see a spider...and scream... for a good 15 minutes...needless to say...it was 11:30pm before i got to sleep...tuesday night... take girls to lake for a picnic dinner and a walk...that, after going grocery shopping after work..then some other errands and didn't get home until well after bedtime...and by now, my body is all messed up and can't sleep...but at least a little more than the other couple nights....thankfully...cause here comes wednesday... where i learn i will be doing a split shift...and didn't even get off work until 10:30pm...luckily i was so tired at this point, i was asleep at 11:30...today...tired...and cranky... and we get the call... the night girl won't be in...at this point, i am about in tears...i can't do it... and say so... we do come to an agreement...i come in for just a couple hours and do the main part, and the supervisor finishes up...i don't see this working as well as boss says it will... but i have no choice... i did however, take a nap...so i am feeling a little friskier than i did this morning... and...tomorrow is friday...come saturday...nobody wake me up...i will be in vegetative mode for the day...lol.

You know...when i was younger...i could go weeks with little sleep...and still be my peppy self...uh...i'm not that young any more...and i just can't do it...that was more than apparent this morning when the only exercise i got was me staring at my exer-bike and thinking "oh heck no" lol.

I'm So Proud Of Her

Monday, June 08, 2009

dd2, is in most aspects, a leader...but she is sometimes content being the follower....not very often mind you...but sometimes... her going into this new lifestyle of eating right has put her on the following end...she realized that her way was not working...so she wanted to do it my way... i personally don't think she needs to lose weight...but eating better....ok...yea.... she could do...so i agreed to let her do what i was doing...BUT...we signed her up on sparkteen... that way she has their guidelines.... she called me first thing this morning to find out what was for breakfast...i told her what the other office girl and i were having, then would give her a choice to substitute if she did not like a particular food....i like banana's, and that was on the breakfast menu, so i let her choose another fruit....she also asked about exercise... i told her some stuff she could do, and for how long... she has done really good thus far...tracking everything....including water.... the only thing she has not done yet is her strength training.....then again...it took me a year to get that far...lol....all in all...she is doing terrific :) and doing it the right way.

Bad Day

Saturday, June 06, 2009

Yesterday was a rough day...i'll admit it...i weigh myself...still nothing...i measured myself...nothing...i'm on a quarter of tank of gas and no fresh fruits or veggies in the house... but no big deal...i get paid and get my child support tonight...but then i get home... and no child support...what??? uhg... i don't even have enough money for rent...and now not for gas or food... i go into a panic....get depressed...or should say, more depressed.... and just down right cranky...living this close to the edge is always a stress, but for the most part, i deal with it...the kids are awesome in working with the money restraints of living with a single mom on a limited income.... so after snapping their heads off more than once....i sat them down and explained the situation.... they, as always, are understanding and forgiving.... brings tears to my eyes how wonderful they really are.... during lunch, ate fast food.... it was cheap....it was not healthy... and then the kids had a sweet tooth...i could of baked something...but honestly...who do you think would of ate most of it?? if you guessed me, you would be correct...so we dug up change and went and got a donut....only 1 for each of us.... needless to say though...i did go over my calorie count for the day...yea...the one that just moved up...lol... but you know...it could of been worse... i could of ate a full cake-had i baked it... but luckily, i knew my resistance was low....i knew i could really go overboard....i didn't.... so...as the song says below... i sang a sad song just to turn it around... read the lyrics and then click on play song.... i'm telling ya... music can be a medicine...and this one really helped me to turn it around :)

    I'm so sorry that things have been so tough for you and your kids financially lately. I'm so glad that you have such wonderful, understanding kids for mutual support.

Thanks for sharing that great Daniel Powter song. It's one of my favorites. You and your kids are in my thoughts and prayers for better, brighter days ahead, my friend.

    Its not easy having to depend on another person for your living expenses. Nor is it easy to live pay check to pay check with children. Glad you have a good head on your shoulders Kitty. Here's a big {{{{{hug}}}} my dear friend. Hope that child support check comes soon from that irresponsible person! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Sounds like you can use some emoticon I don't really have any words of wisdom for you but I think you are doing great to try and focus on the positives. Sounds like you have wonderful children. I know when I am feeling down all I can see is what's wrong but I try to tell myself it could always be worse. Always better a donut than a whole cake ;)

    My mom always calls me and plays that song if she knows I'm having a bad time- she'll leave it on my voicemail!

I've been feeling awful lately too- depressed, even, mostly about money and working and things. I'll tell you what, I'll be saying special prayers for you over the next few days that God will keep you going!!
