Won't she be shocked to see her towel with this photo on it? Too funny! I'll let you know how that goes. Update: Casey texted me that Costco put SSU on the towels instead of SSS! She swam for Sebastopol Sea Serpents, not Sonoma State University! Continue reading

Today I got a package from the State of California with a few more items needed to complete my application. I sent an email to my provider for instructions, and I am wondering why anything was missing in the first place. I am grateful I don't have to try to figure out all the forms and applications. I am one that always needs to be in control, so this minor set back is irritating, things should be thorough from the beginning. I have high expectations, and I don't do well in situations like this. (As a friend would say, then... Continue reading

Okay, it's Monday, accountability day. So, how did we do this week? Hmmm, last Monday we were at 186.8 and now we are 187.4. This is the wrong direction. However, it's not all bad. I am trying to do this on my own, no medicine and stuff like before. I can do this. Last night had a great 30 minute walk, about 1 1/2 miles. That felt good. then consuming half a Cinnabon, not so good. Those things have 800 calories! Holy crap. I am back on track, (I'm bloated cause you know why) and I feel pretty good. So...

The boys picked up a brown bag of golf balls. They were looking through them on the floor. I got a little more creative. Not that easy to do on carpet. Continue reading

So here's something to update, the fact that you aren't keeping up on your blog! I want to blog for me, if anyone wants to follow along in my life, that's okay too. I want to look back and see the digital scrapbook and journal of myself and my life. I tend to forget things, or would like to revisit something from the past. Can't do that if I don't document stuff now. Still waiting for my business license from the state to be completed. Then let the adventure begin. I'm not really scared about quitting my job and going... Continue reading

Here's a modern day dilema. With the popularity of facebook, you not only see what your friends are up to, but family too. That's a good thing, unless it's your kid and they make a comment to someone elses facebook. And no, I wasn't looking around to see what they are doing, I made a comment on that persons status, and facebook emails me the other comment posts. But really, almost 19 years old and you write about your little sis being a hoe and eat a duck, (take out the "u" add a "i"). I'm sorry, but I just... Continue reading

This is what happens when the power goes out and work and the back up generators fail to kick in. I watched a comedy show (Jeff Dunham's Sparks of Insanity) while I had battery on my mac. The receptionist (Deby and Sylvia) sat outside talking and relaxing. Emelia and Angelica drove to juice shack to buy drinks (I didn't get one cause I'm trying to be good). And lastly I grabbed my yarn out of my car and started crocheting! It took just over 3 hours for the electricity to be restored. It was hard to get back into work... Continue reading

This is not where I want to be. I've decided that the only way to make a difference is to hold myself accountable. I'm tracking what I eat and my weight every day. I'll update my progress on Monday's on the blog to share whatever progress I've made. Here's hoping next week will be 185 or less! Continue reading

I took a few photos, but only to show everyone what the best part of the night was.... Casey brought us homemade carmel brownies!!! They were still warm!! Continue reading
