OMG, been on the go all day and missed an awesome thread discussion!! LOL

Maw, welcome home! If I lived closer I'd loan you a Schnauzer or two for your walks... Four brown eyeballs staring at you with intensity in the mornings mean there is no alternative to walking, and doing it, like NOW.

Woubbie, that's funny - I share that admin's frustration! Maw explained the 'ticking' part, and the 'tying' part is tying it out to a credit card statement, bank statement, loan statement, etc. I've never heard those two words used together like that though, and it sounds like something Schnauzery that would get treated with a topical application of Frontline, Advantage, or Trifexis...

Connie, I am moderately freaked out on your behalf... I'd definitely be carrying a weapon too! I did when I was online dating (gave that up after a long parade of sad-sacks, slack-jawed dullards, and straight up weirdos!). Listen to your intuition - and read "The Gift of Fear" by Gavin de Becker!

Joy, is one tree enough to block Junky Guy??! I have Trashy Guy living next door to me...

Terr, I did an eye test today and found out that my vision is NOT as good as I thought it was. I got lasered back in 2000 and apparently that can change over time (and age). Poop. Hope you get your prescription fixed and I hope that tomorrow is smooth sailing.

My day was a lovely day of self-care! I took the day off work and went to the doctor for all my long over-due maintenance stuff. It's about an hour and a half to the clinic (I never changed doctors after moving out of the Seattle area) and I didn't head for home until 1:00. But I got home and picked up my newly resuscitated laptop (which I am using right now - my life is whole again), went and had a pedicure, and then went out to my former client's medical spa and had a facial laser treatment!

Tomorrow: back to reality - metal building, chaotic boss, money and paper juggling!

If I forgot to comment on someone's post, I apologize - my brain is fried, but this was an exceptionally entertaining thread today! Too late to go to bed on time so I'm settling for 'soon'.

Hey Maw -- we probably passed at the airport this morning without realizing it -- my plane was 40 minutes late coming home from Oakland.

Picked up my glasses -- can't read a thing -- they were only supposed to be for reading -- I should have stuck with my Walmart readers that were $10 -- now I have to go back in to do an eye recheck because they are thinking that they gave me a distance lens rather than a close on -- it was single vision -- it shouldn't have been all that difficult.

My husband put his on and proclaimed a miracle. His prescription is very complex and his glasses are perfect.

I should have gone back to bed Monday morning and just stayed there -- it has been one thing after another -- constant irritating situations that have just caused stress and wasted time.

Sorry, done whining -- Have a great evening.

Both boys are in Drivers' Ed this week - which means getting them to the high school by 8. Their last day of class is tomorrow. I'll be glad to have another week before getting back to the school routine!

James - here is a link to some really wonderful lowcarb cookbooks prepared by people who have been on the lowcarb and Atkins journey. I've listed the link before, but here it is again:

amongfriends.us/index.php

They have crepe recipes in them, but I'm not sure I should post any due to copyright laws. But they contain gluten-free oat flour and vanilla whey protein. I haven't had time to make the recipe myself, but plan on it. Crepes are a wonderful thing because they are low in calories and everything else. And you can make them and freeze them and use them at a later time.

I bought all 3 of these cookbooks to replace any outdated highcarb cookbooks in my kitchen. They are really wonderful, and you can order them spiral bound, which makes it nicer when you are cooking and trying to read the instructions. They just lay flat on your countertop.

Well, I got my new river birch tree planted today. Now, I just have to water and feed it and keep it alive. If I don't keep it alive, my junky neighbor will drive me crazy with hurting my eyes with his junkiness. Can you tell I'm really fond of this guy?

Wednesday, food great . . .water . . . taking more . . . fascia shredding today & another one tomorrow . . . I'll be in the car & in motels & with lots of family this weekend. I'm preparing.

The low carbs still make me happy! The man I'm dating is converting to my type of eating (at least when we are together). He has other friends that he eats their way when he's with them.

I'm waiting for another person to come & view the room that's available. I carry a weapon with me with we walk thru the house. Brains & preparation over sorrow & pain.

YIPPEE! This is my kind of summer. No humidity, cool breeze & shade is comfortable.

Accountants make "tic marks" next to items that they've looked at. Ticking would mean checking things off.

A young guy I used to work with drew pictures of various sorts of bugs as "tick" marks. He wasn't with the firm long.

In the last days I made pancakes for breakfast, basically substituting flour with protein powder. It worked like a charm. I always thought the baking powder had some chemical reaction with flour to make it rise, but that ain't so, it was just fine and I couldn't tell the difference with regular pancakes.

I'm looking for a low carb crepe recipe. I'm experimenting, but so far modifications of my protein powder pancakes recipe have not been flexible enough. My first try was to not put in baking powder.

Ideas anyone?

Sweet, Maw! I'm glad you had enough to donate and I'm sure it will be thoroughly appreciated!

Going shopping tonight with Max - that's always a good time. He needs a few odds and ends for school (just over a week till move-in day). He always manages to twist my arm into taking him to either 5Guys or Chipotle for dinner. Not that it takes all that much twisting. :)

I am still "touching paper once" at work and it still flows on to my desk like it comes from a bubbling and endless spring. Getting a little fatigued from trying to keep my focus day after day and relentlessly ploughing through both the hard and the easy tasks. I'll be thrilled to get out of here a little early on Friday to go watch Kyle at band camp and pick him up to come home.

I did get a lot of college-related paper and online work taken care of yesterday, so that's one biggie off my mental to-do list.

Hey, Leslie, an email comment I got earlier today made me think of you - if I'd had your cell number I'd have called you right up. A field admin was in a panic because she got her manager's credit card documentation in late, so she made up for last month's flub by getting this month's paperwork in 3 weeks before the deadline. She finished up by saying "I will never allow this to happen again. I have 19 years of experience from 2 different Accounting Firms, hence my ticking and tying."

Ticking. My stream of consciousness floated past images of time bombs, blue and white striped pillow covers, big red checkmarks, irritating people I know, and little gross insects. Finally had to Google it and I'm STILL not sure what she meant, other than that she was speaking the Accountantian dialect, with which I am not very familiar.

I'm home again. No problems on the trip other than a delay starting the flight from Salt Lake City to Indy because all the seats had the wrong safety information cards. It took them a while to round up enough new ones for everyone, but they managed. And a 20-or-so month old kid across the aisle from me. Very friendly, very active, but pretty good, at least until we started our descent. The poor kids ears must have hurt because she screamed the whole way down, then immediately started smiling again.

It's time to get down to eating right and exercising and just generally living right. I started today with a walk (no dog, unfortunately) and some basic cosmetic work in the garden. Then picked a whole bunch of tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, basil, kale and chard. Took most of that to the food pantry. Saved out a little bit for me, but there's lots more out there waiting to be picked.
