August Thirtieth

HelloFlowersInWateringCan

Watching Wild Wild West with hubby and son2… son1 has gone off to bug son1 and girlfriend or keep girlfriend company as son1 is looking for original Jeeps that people want to get rid of for a couple of hundred bucks so he and his Papa can rebuild it…

I’m tired… I’m getting no where fast at work… yesterday and today I had small ads to set up… yesterday I stocked the sale tables and today I scanned my divisions… both days I am trying to put shoes away in the stockroom but because we have to locate them on the handheld it takes forever…

Yesterday afternoon I signed hubby up for Career Builders… today he spent five hours rewriting his resume so now we can put it on Career Builders and at the unemployment website… since it has only been in the 80’s I turned off the air conditioner (we’ve had it set at 80 anyway), opened all the windows and turned on all the fans… it was a bit hot in the night when I closed all the windows back up but not bad… we’ll see how we do on Friday when it’s back up to 102… we watched Evan Almighty and we were all in bed at 9pm…

Today son3 was up at 5am… I go in to work early again since hubby is home… so hubby takes son3 to school and picks him up and then I’m home to do homework… son3 has a cold today though… headache, stuffy nose, sore throat… hopefully he is able to sleep tonight after being up so early… he did his two pages of math homework and two pages of spelling homework ok tonight…

Hubby has also been trimming trees and cleaning out big garbage for our big garbage pickup tomorrow… not that anything is left after the guys in their big trucks going scavenging through the neighborhood…

Son1 and girlfriend have gone off to look at a Jeep that someone had on Craig’s list… son3 is off watching Family Guy… son2 and I are eating cake… I am still 23 pounds down… it is all about the portions, so far anyway… I was reading in a magazine that our plate portions have increased 66% since The Last Supper with Jesus and the Disciples…

I am off the next two days… I have so much to do… Help hubby with online resume posting, blog entries, housework, fix the books in the new bookcase that son2 finished, homework with son3, laundry, dishes, and watch True Blood…

Yesterday I ate: water, vitamins… lunch~chimichanga, yogurt, cola… chicken strip, tortilla chips… dinner~scrambled eggs, 2 toast, turkey burger (no bun), rice, peas, pasta, water… yellow cake w/chocolate frosting…

Today I ate: water, vitamins… lunch~chimichanga, yogurt, cola… turkey burger on a bun, chili beans and corn… yellow cake w/chocolate frosting…

Happy Journaling…

I started your think with weight loss today with healthy portions. I'm measuring and finding what I thought was a portion was WAY off from what they thought a portion was. And I'm writing down what I eat to keep track too.

good for you for 23 pounds! you'll be floating away before long!

it has been pleasant, hasn't it, with the weather??

hoping you find some time for yourself these next two days

betty

I did not know that we had increased our portions by 66% since the Last Supper! Wow! No wonder we are all struggling to lose weight! Especially since the invention of the automobile. Hope you have a good week!! Glad you are having a bit of cooler weather... we are here too and it has been refreshing!
