WHOOHOO...I'm Backkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk!

Monday, July 08, 2013

Yep...I'm back after being MIA for a while (well..most of last week). My son was here and it was hard to get on here. Not because we were busy doing stuff. But I just wanted to focus on him. He was having a rough time of it. Screwed over by his insurance company and dealing with killer heat while here. It just hurt my heart so much to see him down like that. And nothing I can do but give him love and support. emoticon He was here until last Sat. One day he just stayed in his room all day, one day he was so angry I just kept quiet. He was a bit better the last day or so before he left. And then Sunday morning he called and apologized for acting like he did. I love him so much. I'm praying he can get though all that's going on for him right now. I will say I wasn't happy with his paying his GF bills. I had my say then didn't say anything else about it. emoticon

It was blistering hot here last week. Temps well into the 100 teens. Like 112...113...116 etc. Then Saturday morning it rained and it rained, thundered and lightninged on Sunday emoticon . My poor car looks like it went 4 wheeling! But I won't wash it until after this coming weekend, there's more rain in the forecast. We need the rain though. Temps are down into the low 100's today. emoticon

As far as eating and working out..I did watch what ate (I didn't log though) and I did get 90 mins treadmill workouts done on both Monday and Tuesday. The rest of the week I missed them. I didn't even get a lot of steps in, as we didn't really leave the house at all. I did pretty good maintaining the same weight I was the week before, but I was up 2.5-3 lbs this morning (I'm always up after Sunday dinner). That should fix itself the next day or so, water weight! emoticon

Our new living room furniture showed on Wed. The sofa reclines on each end and the chair glides (rocks) and reclines. It's taken the cats a bit of time to get used to it. emoticon But they are finding sleeping spots now. emoticon

Today has been great so far for eating and working out. I did 55 mins on the treadmill at work and I'm right on target for today's calories. I have a pork roast in the crock pot at home so cooking is taken care of for today. I'm still working OT at work (thank goodness..I can use the money!). In fact I was able to put back some the money I had to take out of my savings account this last payday. I'm aiming for $100 a payday going into my savings account. I need to start saving NOW for my car reg in Dec. plus Christmas...and out trip trip to Oregon in Aug/Sept. And racing in Nov. I really need to win the lottery! emoticon

OK..that is about it for me. Have a great rest of Monday!

    emoticon Sounds like you are doing well for the most part. Overtime really IS a "Mixed Blessing". The money is always good, but the Extra Work is a Drag, usually.
    emoticon Winning the Lottery would be a Way Better Plan, in My Opinion.

    So sorry Jason's visit was a little rocky. It's so hard to be a parent when they're all grown up, isn't it? You want to save them so much heart ache. Still sucks about the insurance company. You're a good mom, you know... Hugs, Calen~

    PS. Did you really mean that whoohoo!?
