Leslie, that SO sounds like the beginning of a screwball romantic comedy!

As I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man with seven wives,
Each wife had seven sacks,
Each sack had seven cats,
Each cat had seven kits:
Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,
How many were there going to St. Ives?

Good tip, Woubbie! I must try that...

So my best phone call of the day was from a dude who said, "Uh, this is going to be a little weird, but I'm on the roof of your building and need help getting down."

What? What?! WHAT?!

I could not quit laughing! Turns out he was a contractor up there to quote on some solar power thingy and he needed someone to stabilize his ladder since it's a really tall metal building and falling would be bad. I found the operations manager and sent him out there, and got back upstairs to my office in time to answer another call from him.

"Hi. I just wanted you to know I'm off your roof and I'm safe!"

Cracked me up all over again!

Ooh, ooh, Gail, I just made the zucchini lasagna recipe from About.com and she had the BEST tip on keeping it from getting runny! After you slice your zucchini strips, lightly salt them and put them in a colander and let a lot of the water drip out. Toss them every 15 minutes or so and let them "marinate" for about an hour (or as long as it takes to get the rest of the ingredients together). Wow, what a difference in consistency! The liquid rinsed most of the salt off, though you could probably rinse even more off if you liked.

Hope your dinner turns out great!

Gonna pay some bills tonight and get Max's college paperwork all tidied up. Hopefully.

I'm at work but I've been abandoned in the office! I'm the only one here and the phones are going uncharacteristically nuts - and my own cell phone keeps ringing. Gads. I've talked down one very stressed out woman, told my IT guy not to worry about getting my laptop finished today, and told a cold-call salesman to call another day.

I am also trying to do payroll. Leslie is not someone who handles chaos comfortably!!! So I'm Sparking instead of doing anything else.

Feeling pretty good today finally but didn't get enough sleep. I know some of my not feeling good is probably from me drinking Walmart equivalent of Crystal Light. The artificial sweeteners aren't great for me. I know but I like the taste and caffeine in this one that I drink. It is sort of an energy drink. I have still been battleing the up and down on the scale. but it seems to be staying in the upper range of the 220's. That is nice finally. I so can't wait to get to 100 lbs lost and then uer 200! Someday, eventually. I feel like I should have been at my goal of at least 150 by now. Oh well.
