Valentine's Day depresses the wits out of me. I've been alone for over 21 years, and it's just like getting it rubbed in. However, I did get a message today that I'm thinking of as my "Valentine's Day card." I posted a message on Bobby's Facebook page telling him how much I enjoyed his appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel show last night. He replied and thanked me! How many posts must he get -- I'm blown away that he actually answered.
I worked an eleven-hour day today and I'm doing it again tomorrow, as well as a few hours on Saturday. It's exhausting but I need all the hours and all the money I can get. Who knows -- my birthday is in a couple of weeks. I might actually be able to afford a steak or some shrimp for a birthday dinner.
Workplace Weight Watchers started today. I'm ashamed to admit I've gained about twenty pounds and I'm back up over 400 again. However, I didn't think I could go today because I'm snowed under with work. However, my boss (who also joined) came and pulled me away from the mini-Everest of paper on my desk. They've killed a few of my stumbling blocks -- the company pays for it, I know everybody there, and I don't have to make a special trip (you can't believe how many times the thought of going after work or early on a Saturday morning defeated me). I've rejoined so many times, they probably snicker at their home office when they see my name again. A lot has changed, so this should be interesting.
I'm exhausted but too keyed up to sleep. Watching Chef Wanted and trying to relax.
