2013 First Day Back To Work

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

Well I'm back at work today. I haven't been to work since last year! emoticon I'm not working out this week. I have so much to get caught up on. And today I had to go at lunch and get gas. Where before we hardly ever drove my car on the weekends, since getting the the new Mustang we've been driving it more on the weekends. Eats up my gas fast! Esp when a certain lead footed Hawaiian drives it. emoticon So this tank I got 17 MPG. Last tank I got 18 MPG. That's about what I was getting with my old Mustang. This one was suppose to be a bit better. emoticon

So Jason went home this morning. His flight was at 8:40 AM. We got to the airport about 7 AM. He went TSA OK and my mom picked him up on the other end. It was so good having him here for the Holidays. Toward the end of his stay...I'd say about the last 3-4 days he was starting to get a bit homesick. Jason's never been one to to be too far from home for too long. So he's all home safe now. Next up to come visit us is Karry, Nick and the grand kids. They plan on coming down the last week of March. I'll have to save DTO to take that week off. I'm taking my Personal Float Holiday for 2013 on the 9th of this month. Hubby turns 60 on the 10th and we have to go to the AFB to get new I.D.'s. They'll go from pink (Retired Reserve) to Black (Retired). We'll still get all the bennies plus we can get our meds free too now. emoticon

So lets talk eating....today has been GOOD. Over the Holidays...not so good. I'm back to square one with eating. And working out. I'll get back to that starting on Monday (at least here at work). I told Chuck we're going to start eating better this year. And he's going to stop smoking...as soon as the last 6 packs he has are gone. I hope he sticks to it. So far he's decide NOT to smoke in my new car. emoticon

Hubby and I got new FitBits for Christmas. The new FitBit One. So far we're loving them just as much as the FitBit Ultras we had. We shipped those off to Karry and Nick to use. The new ones sync via Bluetooth. So I was able to get an extra BT dongle for my PC here at work. Now my FitBit is updating all the time. The only thing I'm NOT happy with is that it won't sync with my phone. After being told it would! It seems the Android versions of the FitBit app can't do that yet. Even though they advertise that it does (well...with "select" ones, but I haven't heard of ANY Androids that it is syncing with..only iCrap stuff). But I have hope that it will sync sometime in the future!

On Monday I cleaned out our closet. THAT turned into an all day job! I hauled out about 10 bags of old clothes and small trampoline, then from the kitchen some misc kitchen items and about 6 old coffee makers. In the next few weeks I'm going to tackle the guest room closet. That's mostly filled with old coats that hubby is hanging onto for dear life. Some old comforters, some old cassette tapes, and I think even an old 8 track tape. Plus lots of military clothing. And we have BOXES of divorce papers from hubby's divorce. My divorce papers don't even fill a folder. Hubby hangs on to a lot of stuff. He has receipts going back 10 yrs, and old tax papers too. We'll be shredding a lot of stuff!

So that's it for me today. I'm climbing back on that wagon and moving forward! Have a great day everyone!

    emoticon It sounds like Life is on a Good Track and getting back to 'Normal' ~ Sort Of! It is good to hear that Jason is Home Safe & Sound and that you all had a Good Visit.
    emoticon Will be Praying that Chuck can break the Cigarette Habit. Not Smoking in the New Car is a Great Start!
    emoticon Congrats on the FitBits. I am looking forward to hearing more about them.

    You are counting the cleaning out the closet as exercise, right? emoticon Every little bit helps, you know. I'm so glad Jason's visit was a good one. Missed seeing you around though! Hugs, Calen~
