On to the next...

The workday is done.

Next up is a stop off at Target.

Then dinner.

Then some more shopping.

Then laundry.

Then packing.


So much to do and very little time to do it in.

On the flip side...I had ONE Harvest Homecoming doughnut this morning. The rest of the office did as well, and then they all went down for some deep-fried treats (Snickers, funnel cake, blooming onion...) and apple dumplings and whatever they got for lunch...

And now they are all complaining about how full they are and how they don't feel good.

I brought healthy snacks and, with the exception of that one doughnut and a couple of cinnamon cashews, haven't indulged in anything else. For the sake of my body and my wallet...this is only a good thing.

Hitting Rocky's Italian Grill for dinner.

I'm not ignoring you...

I just haven't had a lot of free time lately.

And until after the wedding this weekend, it's going to stay that way.

Also very bad about getting over to Dreamwidth because I'm not used to having it.

So...I'm around.

Just busy.

My snacking was down today...

Which is a good thing coming off of two back-to-back weekends of birthday celebrations, free desserts, lots of Caribou Coffee, and lots of 'tastes so good even though it's so damn bad for you' food.

And then I got home and indulged in 3 chocolate chip cookies from my birthday stash. Oy! Ah well.

Got a lot accomplished today. Trying not to think of what is on my desk at work tomorrow. Going to just do what I can and worry with the rest another time.

Made dinner tonight, which included some homemade garlic mashed potatoes since we bought some russett potates from Whole Foods on Sunday. They were delicious. Got lots of left overs. Re-worked the menu today for optimum budget crunching and use of food.

Baking bread at the moment and about to go and wrap up my homemade granola bars for snacks this week. Trying something different with snacks as well...for budgeting purposes. So we'll see how well it goes.

And now...some writing and a little relaxation...until the bread finishes.

Life seems better today...

...despite a cookie treat. But, you know, you gotta treat yourself to a cookie every now and again or you just might go mad.

Getting closer to catching up A LITTLE at work. Today's close-out was a huge pooch screw because...well, I didn't get to do it until around 3:30 p.m. That's LATE!! And it was because of outside forces and another customer. But...it got done. And in the process I got some entry and auditing in. YAY!

Going to hit the gym again tomorrow. Running two miles this week. Hopefully there won't be any lane hogs on the track tomorrow. I was having a hard time of it on Monday because people were walking in the running lane. GRRR!

And I just really want to go swimming.

In addition to my two-pack abs...ladystarblade says my saddlebags are shrinking. This makes me happy as that is one of my biggest problem areas.

Okay...going to see about some sleep...

Maybe I'll organize that pantry tomorrow morning. We shall see.

Dear f-list:

Due to a discovery that certain "unwanted" people are stalking my LJ and taking things out of context, I feel the need to go FRIENDS ONLY. If you are on my f-list...then you have nothing to worry about. You will still be able to read all of my posts the same as you always have...but only if you're logged in.

I'll make this transition...effective immediately! I never wanted to have to go FRIENDS ONLY because I really love making new friends and LJ has been a great way of networking. But, I feel given the evidence that has been uncovered, it would be best.

Thank you for your continued reading support!

If you've friended me and I've missed it...drop me a line here so I can friend you back.

I hate this guys...but it seems the only way to put an end to it. And this isn't just to protect my privacy...but also yours!
