WOO!  I've been a busy girl.  In some ways, I feel like I've been spending a lot of time on the computer, but in other ways, I feel like I have gotten so much accomplished.  Honestly, I think I'm lonely and hormonal.  I don't have many close friends here so I don't get out too much.  I'm close with my neighbor, but her kiddo has lice so we haven't been able to hang out.  With her kiddo having it, I've been paranoid of it and cleaned like crazy.  I hate lice!  Just as annoying as fleas!  And did you know that a louse doesn't look far off from a flea?  Yup.  I youtubed it!  LOL  Anyways, apparently some people, those same people who send their kiddos to school sick, send kiddos when they have lice and share it with the rest of us.  :/  So far, we've been clear, but I'm still paranoid.  In a way, I feel bad being angry because I don't know the people's positions.  Maybe like us they have few friends and no family in the area and can't miss work.  I try to see that but it just drives me bonkers!  Hmmm... I would say there should be a program for that, but holey hell, our damn government is already strapped so thin from 'helpful' programs that it's crazy.  Back on point, I'm hormonal from PMS and lonely because I'm missing my friends.  I'm thinking I need to join another play group or something, but when I last looked all of them were at times that didn't work for me.  If youngest would potty train he could go to school and I could meet Mom's like before but that isn't happening.  *sigh*  I guess I compensate by being on the pute.  It is what it is.

Anyways, I pretty much got the attic in shape today!  WOOHOO!  I organized all of the bins, I have my Christmas stuff together and ready to go, I pulled down the next size up for my youngest and purged out some of the too small items to take to a friend and then I listed the other too small stuff for give-away.  I will have to go through all items a few times to make sure I get the right sizes to people but it's progress!  I've managed to clean out one entire bin.  I have another box to go through and then once that is out I will sort the other and get it going.  In the end, it should clear out 4 more bins.  :)  Slowly but surely! 

I even got all of the bills paid up yesterday and started a new notebook checkbook.  I hate checkbooks.  So tiny and usually so messy.  I moved everything to a notebook.  I like it so much I'm thinking of ordering a business style one!  They have all kinds on Amazon, and I just think in the end it would be more ideal.  Mostly because as it is now, I have to mark all the lines and label it.  I do it page by page, so not too bad.  We do our checking a bit different than others in that we usually buy everything with our credit card so I don't write it down while we do it.  What we do is we keep the receipt and it goes into our receipt basket.  At the end of the week, I write down all of the receipts and check it against the online account.  Now, if you are prone to spending or buying little things here and there, that would all add up and WOULD NOT work.  But other than planned shopping, we rarely spend.  So, our entries are usually for gas, groceries, and other things that we purchase from home.  For smaller purchases, we try to use cash.  Just makes more sense.  We get rewards for our usage and it gives us free groceries plus a cash discount.  Once I've checked that everything is cleared and it balances, I pay the balance and we start over.  I realize this wouldn't work for many people, but it works for us and gives us a little kick back.  :)   You just can't get out of control and spend and spend or then you've dug yourself a hole.  We are slightly in the hole now because, well, remodeling is expensive! 

I also checked my weight again this AM and this week's official weight is still 177.  With my cycle due to start any day, I'll take it!  Ok, I AM a bit bummed that I didn't see a loss.  I had HOPED for a little drop to hit my next goal, but it is what it is.  I'll get there eventually!  I am fighting through horrible munchies, but not much I can do but push through that.  Staying busy, drinking water, and spreading my meals out sure has helped.  But it is still a battle.  I just want to munch on SOMETHING.  But I resist.

I guess that is it.  Not much else to go on about.  I'm worn out and hope to get to bed fairly early tonight.  Until next time!


  1. Once again, I have to say that we should live closer together. My little group is once again trying to socialize more with craft parties and karaoke. Two years in a row we tried to do a bookclub, buuuuuut people get busy and don't read the book, so it disbanded both times. Sometimes I think about doing an online bookclub, but it's nice to go to a coffee shop and chat in person. Have you ever looked around on Meetups? Maybe you could find some group activity to join. A girl needs peeps to hang out with!

  2. Hey, almost forgot to mention- I went back to my old blog name, cause I decided I liked it better. Back to
