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 ice for a selection of fresh iced drinks .
All things considered .. even though I was pretty well stressed, but held it together (as I always did when I WAS working) .. everything went well.. We still have possibly 1 or 2 more counting sessions, but everyone did a good job yesterday, and we probably would have pushed on, except that it was 8:30 and I went to Jimmy, and asked how he was doing, and how each team was doing .. and I reminded Jimmy that most of the people that were working had to work "tomorrow" (today) and he didn't want them burned out for that .. and he agreed .. I told everyone we made a great dent; and everyone did an awesome job .. and thanked everyone .. but it was time to find a spot to finish smoothly and we can pick up tomorrow (today) ... I won't be going in until mid afternoon, but I can work into the evening .. Today when I DO get there, I'll work in keying in the sessions that were finished .. lol lol ..
I did panic when I saw Gary walk in .. and freaked out .. but in turn it worked out good .. I put Jimmy and Gary together with the hardest section . (Gary was our inventory manager before he retired... and I like him, but working wise, he and I are like oil and water ... that's all I needed after already being nervous putting this together ) .. so my decision of putting him with Jimmy on the chain and sprockets .. I was very happy .. because they made a big dent !!!
I put Linda with her other son who came in to help .. Ben's twin brother .. Linda knew the stock, and Andy could read numbers .. lol .. I put Robert, and Jimmy's wife Betsy in the most picky part, because both of them are very exact oriented .. they didn't get very far but they had the stickiest section .. Then I had Kim and JT working the belts ... and they got 2 of the 4 walls done .. I had Ben working on his own; in an easier section; and I worked alone on the ball bearings .. I got about 2/3's of the way through my section ..
I did chastise myself for something .. I realized I was working in a very dusty area, and well -- wearing a bright yellow sweater was NOT the smartest choice .. lol lol .. but at least I LOOKED like I did something .. lol lol .. Visualize Pig Pen from Charlie Brown .. Yup -- that was me !!! lol
We had pizza for dinner, and it was yummy .. I'm happy to say that as of this morning, I am 1.6 pounds away from the 220's...
I also know that I'm carrying the leftover single servings of my biofreeze that I took on vacation; because I was hurting horribly; and didn't feel comfortable enough for doing my exercises when I got home .. Thankfully this morning, I did do my exercises .. and happy that I did .. I feel better because of it .. :)
Today I'll be late going to the office; and told Jimmy ... Today I'm taking mom to her doctors appointment; and then she offered to take me to lunch .. I agreed .. so I told Jimmy I would be in later .. I just told hubby that it's going to be a later night tonight, so I can work on entering alot of the stuff that they counted yesterday .. I can't show them how to do it if I don't know how .. lol .. so that will be edumacation today ....but told Jimmy that I would be in mid afternoon ..
Anyway -- that's my story .. as nervous as I was yesterday .. it worked out well .. I had daddy's ring with me yesterday and that held me together .. and some pepto bismal tablets later in the evening ..
Today .. as I said .. I'm picking mom up for her doctors appointment and when I took a break last night; she had called and left a message .. and offered for us to go out to lunch .. I called her back and said that would be wonderful .. we're going to a small family restaurant by her house .. That sounded like a super plan !!! So that's where we're going after her appointment .. and then after I drop her off, I'll head to the office ..
My nice relaxing time that I thought I was having during this month; is starting to blow up ..because Jimmy came over to me yesterday and asked after we were done with this, if I could "gather some information for him again" .. I knew what he was talking about, and it's not a task I enjoy, but it's something that needs total secrecy and evidentally he doesn't trust anyone in the office department as of yet .. so I told him .. Let's just finish the plan in motion first .. Once the inventory is done; that particular task doesn't take more than a few hours ..
I got home last night, and it scared me .. Uly and his friends were having a camp fire under the Christmas tree .. I don't know where hubby thought about bringing up our halloween culdrun; but I caught it out of the corner of my eye, and being tired .. it made my heart jump .. lol lol
They were having a fun time, and after I saw that the "fire" wasn't real .. I giggled .. lol lol lol ..
This morning I have a MAJOR case of the sneezies .. and I feel okay .. so I'm thinking it's from working back in the dusty warehouse, with all the dust flying around .. so hoping it stops soon ..
So -- here's to today .. I made it through the challenge day, and I'm proud of myself .. !!! Here's to the challenge of today !!!! Have a great day and we'll talk again !!!!
