I defected, but now I'm back...

Thursday, February 10, 2011

I miss SparkPeople and the warmth and support that I get from my SP friends. I got lazy in recording my food and exercise and a friend of mine managed to talk me into trying NutriMirror. I tried it for about 3 weeks, but it is nothing like SP. I need to get back on the ball--I am 3 lbs. over my goal, so I'm now trying to lose 8 lbs. so I can get 5 lbs. below my goal weight. Hershey Kisses did me in over the holidays. And going out to eat too much. And just pure food craziness!

I had to go across the street this afternoon and ask a neighbor to please turn down their music. They live 2 doors down and across the street and I could hear their music in my living room with my television on. They have been a thorn in our (me and fellow neighbors) sides since day one. The wife was a complete and utter b***h to me. So I have made an enemy, but I don't care. Next time I will call the police. I hate to waste their time, but I don't trust this woman or the guys that seem to always be hanging out there. I just feel that I should not have to listen to their music in my house with my television on. I'm not one to just sit back and whine about it. I want my own home to be MY own home. Not my home with their music.

I completed a Certified Nursing Assistant course this week. It was so stressful, especially the last 9 days while we were doing clinicals at a nursing home in Temple. I still have to take my state exam on March 8th. I'm going to go up and do a few more hours at the nursing home to get some practice in. But I'm taking a few days off first! I've been exhausted ever since the class ended. I am glad that I did it, but I will be a mess during the state test. I do not like people watching what I do over my shoulder. I would take an anti-anxiety pill, but I don't want to be too laid back! Maybe a drink beforehand? Kidding!!

That is my life today. I weigh in tomorrow morning...yikes....

    You did what you can with the neighbors and the noise. The next step is to let the law take care of it. I was a nurse for over 30 years. It is a rewarding job and I did enjoy the patients.

    Glad to see you back and even more determined than before. Sparks IS THE BEST!!!!

    Good luck on those exams emoticon Your joining a great profession, nursing. no matter what degree you have is so rewarding when helping others.
    As far as the music is concerned.....your home is your castle and you need to make it that way....your neighbors music is most inconsiderate of ALL their neighbors. See if you can't join up with some of your other neighbors to get your point across.
