Got up this morning and did the rush for work and getting the kids out the door. Took Sarah her birthday cupcakes which were a hit with everyone of course! Our server was down at work so there was pretty much nothing we could do today except get on the internet and email. Hopefully they will get the problem resolved so we can actually do something except busy work tomorrow. If not I can see a short day because I don't want to hang around for nothing.

We went to La Mornita's for lunch today. Carmen C., Maria, Julie A. Sarah and I. We had a nice lunch although the waitress wasn't so nice when we asked her to split up the check. Ended up taking the cash that a couple people had and putting the rest on my card. What a PITA! I need to remember to get cash when we are going to be doing things like that.

Picked up Tony on the way home to play with Trevor. I was so exhausted after work today! I came home and put the turkey I had defrosted in the oven, layed down and took a nap. Or at least I tried to! I think every time I fell asleep it lasted about 5 minutes then I'd have to get up and take care of someone or something. Finally got up around 5. I made some coffee and did some of the dishes. Made up a generic Turkey dinner and made more dishes of course! Dinner turned out pretty yummy!! Of course now that it's 11:45 I'm thinking it wasn't such a good idea to have 2 cups of coffee with dinner. I put all the food away and boiled the turkey bones in an attempt to make soup. Finally got it all taken care of and put away and washed up the quizillion dishes. Going to add some stuff to it tomorrow to get it finished up.

Let out the stupid dogs to go potty. Had the little dog on the leash. She saw the cat and woosh pulled the leash right out of my hand and took off running. Of course Tabbie went with her. Little dog came back after not too long but Tabbie finally came back about an hour later. I think I remember why I don't like dogs so much! At least I didn't have to go out and chase her and she did eventually come back. She's still panting from running around out there.

Trevor's asleep in the recliner. He's coughing so probaby not going to be sleeping too well. Hopefully he'll be ok tomorrow.Pin It

another day another failure!

So this morning I told myself, ok you need to stop eating crap. Made it until I dropped Trevor off then it was one hit after another of crap crap crap!!

First I went through the drive thru for some breakfast.
Then Gardettos at a gas station when Sarah and I went on field checks.
Followed by a non light Starbucks mocha at Hilmar Cheese.
Soup for lunch with some crackers.
Some wafer cookies while dinner was cooking.
Ice cream.

Sheesh and I wonder why I'm getting fatter!! Really I do know why. But why can't I stop??? Is it just not having will power or just not being prepared? I know the breakfast thing was because I didn't make myself anything in the morning before I left. I should go back to doing the oatmeal thing at work, that was working well. But then that's carbs and I should probably try to do protein in the morning until I can get myself under control again.


Tomorrow is Sarah's birthday. Picked up a Starbucks gift card and made her some cupcakes for her birthday celebration at work tomorrow. Nice that she is the same age as me for a few months :O)Pin It

So it's the time of night. Everyone is in bed sleeping or at least it's quiet enough that I believe they are sleeping. Jessica is probably reading and text messaging everyone on her myspace. I'm sure I'm going to have to up that texting contract to the unlimited since 400 a month is going to go quick. I keep telling her to pace herself and only do 10 a day but I'm sure that isn't going to happen!

Trevor woke up cranky today. By 9 he was asking for his cousin Tony to come over so we called around and located him at Grandma's house. Grandpa brought came over and dropped him off along with some turkey, stuffing and apple pie leftovers. They played for most of the day, I think they both only cried about 5 times or so in the 12 hours he was here. Yep, 12 hours. At 9 pm I went to take him home. No one was home but some lights and the tv were on. Had to go back home to get my cell phone (from Jessica) so I could call my brother and find out where they were. Of course he was on his way over.

So back to those leftovers! I just finished eating a turkey sandwhich and a piece of pie. I'm restraining myself at the moment to not go eat the last piece of pie. That wouldn't be nice right?? Besides that I really need to stop eating, my sweats are getting tight. Think that's a bad sign??

Anyhow, back to work tomorrow after a long weekend. I think I had enough family bonding for the last 4 days to enjoy a few hours at work tomorrow!Pin It

So Thanksgiving was fun. Went over to my brother's house. Mom actually did all or most of the cooking, she just did it at their house. It was my SIL, her Mom, Dad and 2 brothers, which sheesh those kids sure did grow up since last time I saw them. They went from nice looking boys to thug looking teenagers. Mom, Step Dad, other Brother and his Girlfriend, and the 5 of us.

Food was great of course, had a few drinks. SIL's family left right after dinner. We sat around talking and SIL's 2 friends came over. They crack me up! We left a little after 9. DH wasn't feeling well and was ready to go home.

After we got home I went to bed since I had plans to get up early and go shopping. I slept for about an hour and then had a raging stomach ache. Finally gave up on trying to sleep and just got up and looked at the internet and sales papers for awhile until it was time to go.

I was a little early to pick up my friend so I went through a drive thru for Starbucks. I went to pay and OMG no ATM card. Did a slight freak out and then remembered that I had used it at our little corner store 2 days before and figured they didn't give it back to me. I called the bank to make sure I didn't have any huge charges and then tried not to think about it anymore! So I had to use my CC to do my shopping (although I was a good girl and already paid what I charged today off my bill!)

Had a great time shopping with my friend Heather but I wish I had been more organized. Next year we'll be the expert Black Friday shoppers!Pin It

First post!

Hello Hello!! I've been wanting to start a blog for awhile now! I'm not sure what my "theme" is at this point other than just a place to jot things down that are on my mind. I figure I'll start there and maybe I'll morph into something fun and exciting!

So tomorrow is the big Turkey Day. Blah blah. Going over to my brother's house where my MOM is going cooking a Thanksgiving meal. Still not sure what time we are going. The one good thing about going over there is they always have alcohol so I can suffer with a buzzzzzzzzzz.Pin It
