Good morning GG's,

Nice sunny day today. Supposed to get up to 70* Maybe I can work on that room for a while, then take a break out on the deck and enjoy the nice day for a bit.

Meso (kitty) is sitting in a sunny spot enjoying the sunshine.

Guess I'd better get moving ~ I could mess around here and before I knew it ~ the whole day would be gone.

Hope you all have a nice day.

Take care

Hi Goldens!

I will be back later but note to Zoe....

I once did this under similar circumstances when I saw people in another department abusing secretaries and other underlings...

In meetings I would often insert references to the "need for supervisory training" that would protect us in the current context of EEO and employment law issues. You will be amazed at how many conversations can be used. It may not work but you at least get people thinking. In the end, the administrator started to think that I knew something he didn't and he approached me about the topic. I flat out told him that he and others were headed for lawsuits due to their behavior if they didn't do something. He brought in training. The behavior didn't completely stop, but it improved. It also empowered the underlings to stand up for themselves. Just a thought. I HATE watching people being mistreated.

Off to work out. Be back later....

Rie

Welcome beesparkle. I hope you find as much enjoyment from this great group as I do.

Donna, you're a good daughter and will persevere through the cataract surgery. You karma will always be excellent.

Zoe, I had a director that loved making her secretary cry. Chortled at the fact. Then when she wouldn't stop crying, she gave me the secretary saying I was so good with people. While I was blessed to work with this amazing woman, she didn't cry once. Only when DH, kids and I were on vacation here in Oregon to scout where I was going to move did she cry again. The director took my absence as an invitation to make my secretary cry daily. The morning as we were traveling here, I called my office and talked with my tearful secretary. The DH visited the Guard base here and later asked if I wanted to move here because they had a job opening. I said yes. The rest is history. I love it here and don't work for anyone that takes joy in hurting others. I like that. I did feel horribly guilty at leaving my secretaries, knowing they were fair game. Thankfully the b!tch left within a year after I did. So I empathize with your frustration and dislike of your environment. I had to jump ship and you will in 3 months. The relief is amazing. I can take overwork but I cannot stomach nastiness.

Jenye, glad you're making the dr. appt. Knowledge is power and the specialist will probably have knowledge. Then you can act or not based on that knowledge.

Rosey, that your dd and family are moving back home. Won't she be surprised when she sees the slender Rosey? There are parts of Oregon I don't like much and it's a wacky state. But I live in the country in the mountains. That I can't beat.

Rie, very cool that the abuse eased some after training. In my above experience, the b!tch was an accomplished lawyer who knew the laws. Funny thing is my secretary had not a mean bone in her body and wouldn't have filed suit. Heck it was a union setting and she never filed a grievance. Because who would the grievance go to? The HR director and that's who the b!tch was. My secretary's self worth had been demolished and she'd never have sued. B!tch knew and so did I. BTW, she is much happier now. I ran into her when DH and I vacationed in MN once. She looked so much less stressed.

Hi girls,

I am going to make the appointment to see the specialist on Monday then I can relax again.

We are having really hot weather over here. Perth WA is going to be 42 degrees C and they also have a cyclone raging and out of control bushfires in the north of the state - I am glad that I live in Victoria.

Jenye.

No exercise today. I forgot I was serving at the school breakfast program this morning so that took my exercise time and I was so tired when I got home this afternoon that I couldn't even think straight. I was going to get on the bike tonight but we have an overnight guest staying with us and we were up chatting and I really didn't want to don my exercise apparel and exercise in front of him. Poor guy might not have survived the shock of seeing so much of me! LOL

Took MIL to doctor and all is well with her. Did her hair before we left and she looked lovely. After the doctor we went shopping and she beat me out. My foot was killing me by the time we climbed into the car to go home. And I ate chips in the car so that blew my dinner/supper plans. By the time I got home it was almost supper time so I just had a very small bowl of veggie stew. I'm a bit hungry now but I'll take that as a penance for eating the chips.

I bought a really cute 3 piece play suit for DGS for his birthday and a pair of pajamas for next Christmas. The little suit consisted of a pair of pants, long sleeved t-shirt and a nice little hooded jacket. It probably won't fit til next fall. They were both half price so I was pleased.

This is what I ate today. It started good, but then..... Please DO NOT follow my example.

Quote:
Breakfast: Fruit smoothie, 1 slice ww toast with almond butter, 2 tablespoons applesauce, about 1/4-1/3 cup plain yogurt

Sometime after dinner: The best part of a 220 gram bag of low sodium potato chips.

Supper: Small bowl of vegetable stew

Exercise: Trotting around with MIL

WOW! I didn't realize I hadn't even posted anything today! But I have been wanting to say that I LOVE THE MAGIC BULLET!! I have been doing a slimfast shake in there with strawberries, which I did in my regular blender too but I like this so much better. Also I did some tomato juice with some strawberries and a banana YUMMY! I have bought some frozen mixed fruit and a tropical blend juice that I plan on using with a scoop of plain yogurt in it. Going to use up the rest of my milk first.

Also I did roast some veggies with some olive oil the other night and it was good too. I used Broccoli, cauliflower, baby carrots, celery, onion, and a few itty bitty potatos. They had a 5 lb. bag of little bitty potatos on sale at Aldis the other day for $0.49!! The potatos are about the size of golf balls (maybe a little bigger) but I put in 6 of them and only had one. I knew Tim would rather have the potatos than the rest. I hadn't said anything about those things and wanted to.

Tims Dad came home from the hospital yesterday. They brought him home in an ambulance-- he is very weak. But they have a hospital bed set up at home for him and he is much happier there. The nurses probably are too!! LOL! They sent a picture of him today eating some chocolate pudding with a big grin!! So I'm just praying that his sister finds the strength to take care of him (as she has been doing for the last probably 10 years) But I know it is going to get so much harder. They are having hospice come in to help out too.

Well, I guess I won't make this a book tonight. It is already 10:00pm. Hello to everyone and hope everyone has had a good day. If not, try again tomorrow!! LOL!!!

I am feeling pretty good. I still have the holes and the nurses are still coming to pack them, but they are not as painful as they were before. It almost feels like I don't have them. The secretions are looking healthier too, so I am assuming the infection is gone. Dr will probably do another culture on Thursday to be sure. I am trying to be positive about this, and I keep telling myself that my biggest fear was that my bowels would not go back to normal, and Thank God they did. It could be so much worse.

On the other hand, my eating is totally out of control. After surgery, I usually lose my appetite and have some nausea when I even look at food. Well this time, it's only when I look at nutritious food. I can eat all the junk food you can bring on and I'm fine. I am so overloading on carbs, which is bad for my diabetes and also the waistline, but I'm hoping to get my normal appetite back and get back to healthy eating. I'm also going to ask the doctor if I can start exercising again. I know "no bending and no lifting" but I think I should be ok on the treadmill and elliptical.

Rosey - I sure hope your DH feels better soon! I'm sorry to hear he was in so much pain.

Bobbi - Apparently, the only place I had diverticulitis was in the spot that perforated, and he cut that out and re- attached everything. I asked him because I was wondering if I had diverticulitis in any other spots other than the one that perforated, and he said "No." I am still going to be careful though, because if I had it once, I am probably susceptible to it and could get it again. I don't EVER want to go through this again. This surgery was worse than my heart surgery.

Lynn - We all go through periods when we get off program, and it's hard to get back to it. Once you start to feel better, you should be able to pick up where you left off.

Maryea - Most of my used books are from the flea market, where I can get them for a quarter or fifty cents. But when there's a specific book I want I look online. I mostly use Half.com but I also check Amazon.com and Alibris.com. I look for the lowest price among the 3 sites.

Hi Everyone,

I have read your posts to me and they have helped. Thank you for the kind words. I know I will get back on track, but it is really scary when those scale numbers keep going up and up. The urologist visit did NOT help. He wants to do a bunch of tests that sound really painful. I have not decided if I want to go through them. I guess it will depend how much discomfort I am in.

Beginning on Feb 1, I will at least post my exercise and food everyday. I really think that this will help me.

This weekend, I am finishing up one course and beginning another.

Have a great weekend,

Lynn

Lynn...1st step, did you rid your house of the junk foods yet? 2nd step, stock up on the good healthy stuff and keep posting.
Isabella...where did you find the chips? I'll bet they were calling your name and since your feet hurt you said okay chips, lets have at you!
DH was with me grocery shopping yesterday, he was hungry for sweet rolls. I purchased 4 in a package and left them out on the counter for him. After sitting there all afternoon untouched, I finally put them in the pantry so I didn't have to look at them. This morning the package is still unopened? What's with that? He was hungry for them, why didn't he sit down and eat the whole package like I WOULD HAVE. Oh, I know why I have to constantly fight the battle of the bulge and he doesn't. He has will power. I have it while on a diet, lose the weight...then go right back to eating like the world is going to end tomorrow. Cycle back to dieting again, lose the weight and put it back on. Geeeeeezzzz, I'll never learn and this is the reason I have to stay accountable to you even after I get to goal. Now that I've spouted off my depressing 'wisdom of dieting cycles' this morning, I'll go get ready for the day.
Rosey...prayers for Steve, how does a person get his intestines twisted? I'll have to google that, I can imagine the pain. You certainly are going thru a lot right now, do you drive? Anyway, prayers to both of you.
Carol Sue...Junk food is comfort food when you don't feel well, you'll get your healthy appetite back soon... Prayers to you too.

I did post here because I never seen number 6 up. So I guess I have to learn being the first one today to post. I tried to put my post to 6 and it stayed at 5.
