Inventory Prep & Inventory

What a week it's been. It feels like it will never end - yes, I do realize that it is Friday morning, but not only am I prepping for my inventory next weekend, I have to go and help John with his inventory tonight after work. It's crazy. I've been working lots of extra hours with an incredibly sore left wrist (I don't know what I did, but it's painful), and most likely, I'll be working this weekend too. Then all next weekend. I'm so glad the weekend after my inventory is a long weekend. I'm going to stay inside and do NOTHING! It'll be so nice. I can imagine it now. PJ's and tea and movies. Yipee!

Has anyone watched "Rock of Ages" yet? Surprisingly enough, it's pretty entertaining. Except that they remade Pat Benetar songs. It would have been an amazing movie if they would have just left her songs alone. Mary J Blige doesn't do it justice, but Tom Cruise actually does a pretty good job. I'm listening to the soundtrack now, and it's very amusing!

Other than that, life has been pretty boring. Working so many hours makes me so exhausted, so I don't want to do anything when I come home, and let me tell you, the house has taken a beating. I need to do some major cleaning this weekend. I think I can get it all done in a couple of solid hours, but it's so hard to want to do it after working so much. Gotta get done though. Maybe I should just hire a cleaner!!

Ok. Time to go to work! Yippee!!

50 Shades of Distracted

What a distracted couple of days I've had! I started reading The 50 Shades of Grey on Thursday night - bad idea! I should have waited until the weekend! I've been totally mesmerized, and distracted, and well, if you've read the books, you know what else. I haven't been able to do anything but read! I just finished the second book, and now I need to get some stuff done around my house! Hubby plays hockey tonight, so I have lots of time this evening to read. I'm sure book number three will be done in a short matter of time as well.

I don't want to jinx it, but this has been a great month for weight loss so far! I just checked, and I'm down 6 pounds this month! I'm not sure how, but I'm happy about it either way! I haven't been eating as much the past few days, so obviously that helps, but it feels great. I'm just feeling better. Plain and simple.

Ok, time to do some housework that has been lacking in the past couple of days during my 50 Shaded of Distracted phase.

Have a nice day! Even if it's snowing like crazy like it is here!

Weight Loss

Well, it's only Wednesday, and I'm already down a pound since Sunday. Yay! I don't have any idea how it happened, but apparently it did. I'm really going to try to work out tonight. I've been so drained by the time I get home that I just come in the house and crash. I have way too much to do to do that this afternoon! I had a mishap with the laundry on the weekend and tried to flood the basement, so all of the towels that I had just freshly washed are dirty again, and so are both of our winter jackets from winterizing the trailer. Time to get my ass in gear!

Have a good Wednesday everyone!

"I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." - E.B White
Makes sense, doesn't it? I think I'm going to enjoy the world today.

Post #2 today! Strange, no?

I did a silly thing. Well, kind of silly. I looked at old pictures, pictures from Kamloops when I was like 60 pounds lighter. Bad idea. I'm a little depressed that I let it get this bad. It's crazy. The good news is that I'm losing weight, just not because I'm meaning to. I need to be working out.

Last Tuesday, I was at 214.3 pounds. This morning, I was at 211.3 pounds. That's a loss of 3 pounds, but I have no idea how it happened. I wish I was working out and eating well, because it would feel like a loss. This just feels like maybe I drank more water yesterday and that helped.

I'm not sure that I want to make hard goals of losing a pound a week, or 2 even. Maybe just to be lower each week than the week before. Might not be a lot each week, but less is less. I'm just tired of feeling like the fat girl. It's stupid. I'm so confident in most areas of my life, but when it comes to meeting new people and stuff, I feel like people are judging me. Stupid, right? And I really need to meet some people. I just have no idea how to do it anymore. How do adults make friends? Especially when they're super insecure and quiet because of that?

Anyways. Man. Gotta get going and do something. Looking forward to a fun filled week coming up! (not)

Winterizing the Travel Trailer

What an ordeal. We waited too long to winterize our trailer. Or, I guess I should say, we didn't realize that it was going to be full blown winter the second week of October. We ended up using 22 jugs of RV antifreeze. And it's around $6 a jug. Frick. I mean, it would have been more if we had taken it to Dawson Creek (5-6 hour drive away) but it's crazy. And, we were pouring the antifreeze into the trailer, and couldn't figure out why the pump wasn't picking it up. It was because there was just a little bit of water in the lines, and it was frozen. So, we had to back the trailer into John's shop at work and hope that none of the lines had busted. So lucky that none of them did! Now at least the trailer is good to go for the winter. But man. It could have been simpler!

Oh, and did I mention, it was raining the whole time, and below zero. Yep, freezing rain. I hope neither of us wake up tomorrow and are sick. What a weekend. Hope you all had a better, more relaxing one than I had!

Sleepy Saturday

I really, really, really want to have a sleepy day today, but I know that would just be a bad idea. So much to do around my house! Laundry, dishes, clutter management. It's going to be a full day. So what have I decided to do? Crochet and watch Eat Pray Love in bed. I know I should get going, but damn. It's -5 out, ice pellets in the forecast for this morning, and it seems appropriate to be in bed!

Cleaning has become my ultimate nemesis these days. I spend all weekend cleaning, and get the house to a manageable level, then during the week I am so tired out from work that I come home and either crawl into bed (which I did 2 or 3 days out of 4 this week because I was so cranky) or lay down on the couch. Not the right thing to do by any means. Now, our house looks like a couple of slobs live in it, and I have a ton of work to do today and tomorrow. I promise myself every Sunday night that I'll take better care of the house during the week, but I never do. Ugh. Anyone else feel like that? Any tips on keeping up with housework? I don't know how people with kids and full time jobs do it. I can barely do it and I only have the job!

Anyways, I'm super unmotivated. But, I should try to get off of my ass anyways. Have a good Saturday everyone! Hope you get to have a bit of a lazy day!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Well, in our lovely neck of the woods, it's Thanksgiving today. We celebrated with my parents on Saturday, and spent today getting caught up on the essentials - couch time and laundry! It's been a pretty positive year, so hubs and I have a lot to be thankful for.

Now, it's time to get my ass in gear so that this time next year, I can be thankful that it's a bit smaller!! Last year at this time, we were packing and packing and packing to get John moved up here the next weekend. Crazy how time flies. Hopefully, when I look back at this time next year, I'm in a different place. Not a new home or new town, just physically. I'm getting winded from walking up the stairs, I notice I can't move as fast at work. It's bad. So, time for me and the treadclimber to get reacquainted. And maybe take Molly for a walk. Maybe that should be the first step. Better go and try to convince hubby that we need to go outside! Or, maybe I should check and see how cold out it is first!!

Hope you all had a good Thanksgiving, and that you too have a lot to be thankful for!

Computer Systems Crash

Yup, computer system is down. And it's been down most of the week. It's driving me nuts! We should just close the freaking doors and go home. I have so much that I could be doing!!

Right now I'm thinking about switching out my stupid iPhone for a Blackberry. I am so sick of this stupid touch screen. One day, I should do a post and leave all of the autocorrect mistakes on it. I hate it! The touchscreen sucks (I just had to type touchscreen in 3 times to get it right and the last time autocorrect caught it so that it was spelled correctly) and honestly, I don't need all of the apps at my disposal. I want to call and text and check Facebook. That's all. So back to BB it is! I think I'll pick one up this weekend.

Other than that, nothing much is new. Our temperatures have dropped below zero at night and there was heavy frost on the truck this morning. So lame! But it's better than too hot, I think!

Anyways, I should probably get back to work. Not sure what I can do, but I'm sure that I can find something!

Have a good day all!!

I can't believe it's October 1st! Can you?? It seems nuts to me! I might have to finally turn on my furnace! It's not too chilly today, but there is a chance of snow, so you can tell that fall is very much here! It's very smoky again today. I really want it to snow so that the damn smoke goes away! It's bad! I think we might be sleeping in the basement again tonight!

Work was interesting this morning. Computers were down until after 10. And by computers, I mean our whole system including the phones. It was a long morning, and now we have so much to do to catch up! Absolutely crazy. Hopefully I'll have some energy after work to take Molly for a walk. If I do, I'll take some photos in the trees. It's amazing how many leaves have fallen already! They started to turn at the end of August, and most of the trees are already bare. Lame!

Anyways, back to work. Have a great day all!
