It all started with that stupid doughnut eating situation last weekend. Then Saturday night, KADY had an an engagement party at a local bar. We went to dinner with friends first, then went and had drinks. Her band was playing and my plan was to dance for hours! About the second song in, I got a message. 2 of our fellow racers were killed ina racing incident. I went outside to verify the truth and it was confirmed. We were not REAL close but we saw these 2 several times a year and they truly were 2 great guys, really an asset to the sport, smiling, happy people. We were very shocked and since we had been drinking, called a cab. It took too long so we ended up walking home about 4 miles and talking and burning off some of the upset. The last few days have been filled with calls and messages and making memorial stickers and trying to support the community.
Then, we did a roof on a restaurant in January and the very wealthy ATTORNEY we did it for decided he didn't need to pay us the full amount. I have had to lien the property, contact our own attorney, send letters etc. We finally agreed to a settlement and I'm very upset about it. He is a powerful man and it is cheaper to accept this than sue him and probably lose because of his prominence in the community.
It does not sit well with me. Injustice, people throwing their power around, his smugness...I just really am having a hard time. That lead to cookies and just trying to accept it (stuff it down). Not the best choice I know. I ate about 200 calories a day over my limit this week.. just all in all not a good food week.
We are very busy at work and leaving Monday for UTAH for our annual 2 week mountain escape..I cant wait! We will end up at a national race at the end of that, then head home on fathers day. This also bring s stress trying to organize all the work stuff so my employees can work while we are gone, doing payroll, processing orders etc.
On top of that, My daughter KADy is having a career change from Bakery to bartending and another part time job a a coffee shop. She just isn't making enough money to get where they need to be to get married next year but that also means she will be back on our health insurance. My oldest girl we just had to help get a new car (used) so that has been a pain but is now complete too.
Just a lot of stuff going on and I'm feeling very overwhelmed which leads to less than stellar eating.
Tomorrow, all should be resolved then off to vacation. I will have internet so I will be checking in and I always log my food even on vacation.. thanks for reading all my drama!
