Hey everyone I’m here to update again… Monday I stayed OP again and went to the grocery store and to my bestie K’s house to chill and hang out. I bought cereal, milk, yogurt, bread, fiber bars, and sandwich meat. Today I am OP again and went out to run some errands, pharmacy, post office, etc. I also went to Victoria’s Secret and used a couple of coupons. I had one for a free pair of panties and one for $10.00 off any purchase. I ended up getting 6 pairs or panties for just $16.50! Plus, I got a secret reward card that is worth between $10 and $500 dollars, so either way I got another $10.00 free. Sweet, I love VS they have such awesome sales and stuff. I wanted to get a bra or two, but I know that my band/cup size will probably change WHEN I DO hit my goal weight later this year, so I didn’t wanna drop $50.00 on a bra to wear for a couple of months. I even bought a couple of the panites in a size smaller than usual to keep me motivated. I also have some halter tops for summer that I really want to hang onto because I love them, but they are too big. Do you think it would cost much to have a tailor take in 3 or 4 halters… or should I just toss them and buy new ones? Whatever is most cost effective is the route I want to head down.
An update about DH now… He is safe in his destination and is trying to adjust. They are working pretty crazy hours over there and he is already tired. We have the ability to talk through Skype, so it makes things a lot better, but it’s still not a lot because he only has a few minutes at a time. He was telling me today that he is having a hard time because they are piling a lot of stuff in his lap and it seems as though no one else is pulling their weight. I feel horrible for him and it kills me that there is really nothing I can do for him. His morale is pretty low… I know that I always make him feel better when we talk, but there is really nothing I can do to change his feelings about his co-workers or the work load. I wish I could explain the whole story to you all, but I can’t. It’s so frustrating- maybe I should try to talk to a chaplain or something, I know that they have the rules on confidentiality and are service memebers themselves. I just need someone to help me figure out how to give DH a more positive outlook on his job situation. It makes me crazy in a way, I am so worried that he will need to talk and if I leave to go anywhere I might not be available (like at the gym for instance).
Anyways, so tonight I have plans to actually sit down and watch The Biggest Loser. I haven’t really got into this season since I have been so busy the last few weeks, but I’m really excited to get back into it- they are what half way done or a little more by now? I am going to sit down with a nice bag of low-fat popcorn and try to enjoy. Other than the above, nothing much has been going on. I have all this free time now and I just want to sit inside and relax for once. I guess I know that I have so much time now, that I’m like well screw the laundry for today, that part is kinda nice. Right now we literally don’t have any money until the 1st so I’m kinda limited in my activities anyway. I know that on payday I have big plans though, I want to get a scale, set up a tanning package, and pay off the bills… among other things that are floating around in my head. I guess that’s all for today, I still have a few things to do before TBL comes on so I will update again soon.
