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 !! :)
We also have iced for a selection of fresh iced drinks ...
Yesterday was a good day .. I was kind of on the emotional side, but that soon dissipated, with Linda's silliness .. lol lol ..
Most of the morning, I was holding it together, and was proud of myself .. Slowly my brain is wrapping itself around the whole scenerio ..
I worked with Linda yesterday regarding ODBC (downloading information from the system, to Excel spreadsheet) .. and she did really good .. It's easy once you know the steps, but the hard part is finding the information that you want .. which I showed her how to find that as well .. but looking at that .. is like looking at a foreign language .. even though they have the information simplified .. you still have to know what you are looking for .. but I showed her the major databases that I worked with .. and for what I use them for .. She did really good .. and we practiced for a few times through until she got the idea .. I told her to just download entire databases just to see what is in there .. Once it's downloaded, even if you don't understand that logic behind the names .. once you see the data in there, you can most times connect it to the screen ... and make the connection ...
Sooo -- that was my big work time .. :) .. The rest of the time, whenever I went back to my cubby hole, I worked on Spark ..
I worked on my Positive Sparkers
and when I had a question about the Wisconsin page .. (after finding backdoors in the Positive page), I went into the page that's strictly for leaders .. and found alot of wonderful suggestions ... :) After finding all this cool stuff behind the scenes and my positive page didn't go POOF ... I started talking with my co-leader for Wisconsin .. MWAAHAAAHAAHAAA !!!!! I love pushing buttons !!!! lol lol ..
So -- yesterday was a day of Spark Discoveries .. lol lol .. I was holding it together, but didn't push myself to get into conversations, because I was still in twilight zone .. this whole thing was just NOT setting in ..
And then Linda was talking with the salespeople, making the announcement that 2 weeks in August . .. there was NO MORE vacation time ..
August has always been the month from hades .. with vacations and MEGA short crews .. and this August .. well---is no different .. and every year throughout the years .. I've always ended up wearing 5-6 different hats through the month of August .. just to get through the day ... You know what ??? I WON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT IT THIS YEAR !!!!!!! THAT is when this whole thing of my last day being Friday sunk in !!!! and my brain is at peace with it now ... :)
Hubby asked me last night .. "are you getting excited yet?" .. I told him I'm really not excited yet; because my brain is still holding onto the fact that this is just a vacation .. but I'm not frenzy panicked like I was on Monday .. the August revelation wrapped my brain around the fact that "I'm done" .. :) I'm not crazy excited, but I'm calm, and relaxed ... and have made peace with myself on the whole thing ...
I'm happy that I'm in the right mind .. I've been focusing on protien when I eat; and it's made it much easier to not "snack" .. out of nervousness, or boredom .. I had problems last on I think Monday afternoon .. but after I thought about it .. I had had a burger and fries for lunch .. and with my emotional state .. my body took in .. WANT MORE CARBS !!!!!
I left at 4 yesterday .. (which is pretty much the time's I've been leaving this week) .. and because I was in a meloncholy mood; I stopped and bought myself some flowers for at home .. I so loved it with the bouquet that my friends gave me earlier this month; that I bought myself some more ..
So I have happy in my kitchen ... :)
Today --- what does today have to bring to me ...
While I'm working on more "Spark" .. I'm not sure what today has to give me .. I'm concentrating on protien foods .. I have 1 more breakfast sandwich (egg, cheese and turkey sausage on flatbread) in the freezer at work, and that will probably be my lunch again for today ... That worked yesterday .. with a handful of multigrain taco chips ... and I was "happy" by the time dinner rolled around .. Soooo that may be my direction today .. however, my premade breakfast is gone now .... lol ..
Today will bring what today will bring !!!! but whatever it does .. I guess I'll take care of .. :)
I know I know ... my blogs have been pretty laid back .. Just bear with me, and trust me .. they'll be back .. :) For now .. I can't get silly in my blog, and hold it together in real life .. :)
With that being said .. I have to go get myself some scrambled eggs or something.. ooo egg on an english muffin .. Yup -- that sounds doable .. :)
Talk later ... and have a wonderful wonderful day !!!!!
