Keeping my fingers crossed!

Well I did it, I signed a job posting at work, for a day shift job. I don't know if I will get it but if I do it will be a HUGE change for me if I do. Will find out Thursday morning. I have been on 3rd shift for almost the entire 15 years that I have worked for this company, and have been doing the job I am currently doing for almost 7 years. I am worried about being able to do the new job since it involves working with chemicals, now I do a lot of fork lift driving and computer work.
Husband has been working on the road for the last 3 weeks so I thought it would be much easier to eat healthier without him here, boy I was wrong. It seems like such a hassle to actually cook for just me so I have been just grabbing whatever is handy. That has to change! The scale, the poor poor scale has been getting a bit of a workout with the increased weight, that poor scale!!
Took the dog for a walk tonight and I think I about killed him. He has been panting and slopping water around since we got back....over an hour ago! If he wouldn't think he has to pull like a mule on the leash he might fair better when we walk! Also picked a ton of tomatoes from the garden, hello fresh and canned salsa! Did about an hour of weed eating, arms feel like jello, but does that count as an activity to help reach my goal towards workout minutes?
Think the Daughter and Granddaughter are going to stop in for a few minutes before I leave for work...WOOHOO, I just love being a Grandma!! The baby had a bad day yesterday, she had 6 seizures, one a pretty severe one. She had been doing really well, had gone almost 5 weeks without one, hopefully it was because she is growing and her meds just need to be adjusted.
Well I hope you all have a great evening!
