September Twentieth…

l3

Last night I didn’t quite get to watch True Blood til way later in the night as son3 was watching TV with me so we were watching Funniest Videos and Family Guy…

Meanwhile son1 and girlfriend were online and son1 filled out an application for college to become a fireman… I’m thinking the girlfriend is influencing son1 to better himself… Which is good but what are her reasons… And wasn’t son2 planning on becoming a paramedic… son1 says he has wanted to be a fireman for years now… I’m not quite remembering  that… And there was talk of quitting his full time job to go to school… I hope not… I can’t keep up with his plans… He needs to pick one and stick with it… but he wants everything to just take a minute and not years….

This morning he was back on getting the part time job…

I was off to work early again in the dark… Had a little ad to set, scan athletic displays, request missing signs, print signs and put them up, go to lunch, stock men’s shoes and open boxes…

I also talked to HR about my big paycheck… It’s mine to keep… I had the choice to pay back my vacation… but I decided to instead not take my next three vacation days and save them for the week I am taking off at the end of October to that I will at least get paid enough to cover medical… So technically I already got paid my vacation in advance… and I’ll still take those three days off just not paid til later on my vacation…

Home in time to walk and pick up son3… checked email, homework with son3, made a big pot of chicken soup, ate dinner, watched Hogan’s Heroes and here I am…

Son1 took son2 mudding, washed the jeep, stopped at Walmart looking for a pedometer but didn’t find one he liked, washed the jeep again at home, having trouble with the jeep stalling out so checked on that, they ate dinner and now they are going for a walk… He also stopped by his old part time job site that he finally got the paper work for and is now in the hiring process… since he’s been gone from them for more than a year, he has to go through all the drug testing and background testing again…

Son3 is getting in the shower, the sink is still full of dishes and the new shows come on in twenty minutes… Tonight is How I Met Your Mother, Rules of Engagement, Two and A Half Men, Castle and Hawaii 50… I am off tomorrow though so can get some chores done around the house, hopefully… No unemployment today but like I told hubby, if it was denied I’m sure we would have got a response right away… Now he is just in the system and he will probably get a check this week, which is two weeks after the first statement he got without a check attached, just bubble in the answers to did you look for a job…

Today I ate: vitamins, water… lunch~chimichanga, yogurt, cola… potato chips… heading into my eating/salty craving week… dinner~chicken noodle soup, tortilla chips, water… maybe a bit of ice cream with caramel sauce in a bit….

And did you know that when you lose weight, you also lose weight in your feet… I usually wear a 10 1/2 wide but it is hard to find that size, so I usually get 11 which is too long or buy men’s shoes in an 8 1/2 or 9… but today out of curiosity I tried on a 10 in the stockroom and it was still too snug but I got it on, which means I might can fit in a 10 wide again…

Happy Journaling…

yep, when you do lose weight, it also affects your shoe size. I have shoes right now that are tight because I'm up in weight, but fit perfectly when I was down in weight.

fireman and/or paramedics are great fields to get into, whoever decides to pursue them. It is good if GF is wanting Son1 to aspire to be more, but it also has to come from him as you know.

glad it worked out okay with the mix up in your check. very good indeed!

It wold be so nice for you to hear from unemployment that would relieve some worries for you I'm sure. I do know that gaining weight increased my shoe sized. When I was 21 I wore a 5 1/2 shoe and now I'm up to a size 8. Like you I could easily wear a 7 1/2 wide, but wide shoes are not easily found so I wear an 8.

I hope your day off is a TERRIFIC one!

I wonder if age plays anything in the size of feet? I have always been an 8 or 8 1/2..now I'm finding that I have to look more at the 9s...what next with this age thing?? lol..

I had no idea your feet could lose weight too!
