Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!! You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)
I've got ice if you want any of the drinks iced as well ..
It was a good day yesterday .. a busy one, but a good one ...
I don't know if you remember my story of Ben from a few days ago .. On Tuesday blog .. but I came up with the conclusion .. My concern was not that he's been "too busy to learn the task of changing prices" .. and I stopped asking him and told him to tell ME when he had time .. (yes .. he has a busy job) .. I did write up a Dick and Jane series as to how to .. but whether or not that's enough .. I don't know ..
However ... I realized that I really am not stressing because he hasn't come to me .. but stressing because the database that I was going to work with him on; was due to increase on July 1 .. and that would probably be what I am remembered for .. lol lol lol ..
Prices can be changed either manually or via upload .. so that's not a problem .. I was just going to show him the easier of the 2 ways .. and my stresses were that the line that I was going to show him on, is one of our major lines ..
I decided to take care of it .. it took me all day yesterday but I just logging in this morning, and uploaded it .. IF he chooses to ask me now .. I will create a dummy database .. and show him how .. but THAT is off my head .. It was like a total weight was taken off my shoulders .. I'm so happy that I came to that realization and took care of the matter .. It wasn't that he wasn't coming to me to learn .. it was because of the change of prices were sitting on my head, and I didn't want to leave with the essence of "Told you I was worth something" .. because that is so not the feeling I've got ... and MATTER CLOSED!!!
So -- I worked on that during the day !!! and just finished uploading it .. (logged in from home) .. and I can move forward ..
We had our software support in working with Linda .. and occasionally Kim would have me over for questions .. but actually I got alot done .. When Kim would come back, she was courteous as far as letting me "get to a spot where I could stop" .. and I appreciated that ..
At around noonish, I went over to the office side, and sat down .. Linda picked up right away .. and asked if I was hungry .. I told them "I couldn't think no more" .. lol lol .. I told them I would meet them over at Chili's .. and went and grabbed my purse and took the long walk over to my truck as I'm parked in the neighbor lot ..
I got to Chili's and just sat at an area in the parking lot that I could see them come in, and I could sit and just relax until they got there .. it was in back so I'd have to walk all the way to the front of the restaurant .. AND I could see them pulling in .. :)
I had a yummy Quesidea Explosion salad with avacodo slices added .. OH MY YUM !!!! It's pretty much a southwestern salad, with a cheese quesidea sliced in 4 instead of bread .. I left Linda and Jesse talk while I colored .. (until my crayon broke .. :( ) ....lol lol .. Yes -- I WAS listening ... lol lol ..
I was proud of myself .. I ate slowly .. and because it was a bigger salad .. I was still eating after they finished .. I just can't bring myself to "pack up a doggie bag" for Salad .. by the time I get to it, it's a soggy mess .. so if I can't finish it .. I just leave it .. however I was finishing it, and I wasn't stuffed .
Throughout the afternoon, I got up and walked around (because the job I was working on did not require alot of moving .. so I created my own moving .. lol lol )
I left at 5 .. I wanted to do the upload but it appeared as if Linda was staying for a bit to catch herself up .. and I couldn't justify kicking her out .. so I prepped it for me to log in from home to upload it .. I already ran my test so I knew it was going to work ..
I got home, and hubby was still out on his adventures of the day .. (Taco bell had 1 free taco between 2 and 6 .. and well -- there are 5 or 6 Taco bell's in our area...lol) .. so .. he wasn't home .. I decided since I had a bigger lunch, and I have "things" on my head .. I would take my 25-30 minute walk and sort things out ..
Now I have myself a dilemma .. lol lol .. my 25-30 minute walk is continuously coming in at 20-22 minutes .. and the neighbors are looking funny at me walking in circles around the court for 3-5 minutes .. lol lol lol . I think I'm actually getting better .. While I am not surprised at my "sparkling" .. I'm actually able to do these walks without the challenge of breathing .. This is a MEGA YAY ME !!!! This means I can start pushing myself alittle harder .. and going farther .. My next goal is to walk to the end of the subdivision .. (and that creates a 1 mile walk) and to do it in 30 minutes .. that will mean that my 2.7 mph, will become 3,0 mph .. :)
I never thought that I would exercise myself to the point of pushing to "the next level" .. I just might make that 3 mile distance around the subdivision that is my goal !!!! so my novel reduction in 25-30 minute normal walk .. is really creating SUCCESS !!!!
I DO !!! I DO HAVE UNICORN POWER !!!!!!
By the time I got home from my walk, hubby was home .. He brought home a couple of his treasures .. but they were the cheese dorito tacos / shells .. and I don't like those cheesy doritos .. so I thanked him and said no thank you ..
I finished up my day with just a hamburger that we had left in the refridge .. and that's all I had .. just the burger on a bun, with honey mustard dressing and a slice of onion .. I was hungry but not hungry ... as I had a bigger lunch .. however, I knew that if I didn't have it, I would be ravenous this morning .. and it worked .. :)
This morning I have my dentist appointment, but only for my cleaning . I don't have any cavities .. :) lol lol .... so I can be a little lazier (than normal) this morning .. :)
Hubby reminded me this morning .. 12 more days .. that's working days .. I'm working hard on winding down my projects, and the reality is starting to come real .. I'm thinking of where to leave my projects .. cut clean ... yea -- there's alot floating around this balloon I call a head .. I'm working hard at not getting myself overwhelmed .. sometimes it works .. sometimes it doesn't ..
Okay -- need to get myself some breakfast BEFORE I brush my tooth .. so talk later .. I'll leave you with my "little visitor" this morning .. :)
Little guy is no bigger than a guinea pig .. :) That made me smile this morning .. Hope you find something to make YOU smile as well .. :) Have a WONDERFUL DAY !!!!!
