Well slap my head and call me southern. I ate cornmeal grits for lunch today. I was supposed to have lunch with a friend but he took ill so we had to reschedule. I walked into the cafeteria and they had a guest chef from the corporate office location (you know, the one with the water fountain outside and the much better food ;) ). He was making his special shrimp and grits with chipolte sauce. I wasn't sure at all about this but they had samples and it was really good. Cooked cornmeal is only 2 pts for a 1 cup serving so it wasn't that deadly points wise. I went out into the sun for a few minutes to call Mom and chastise her for downloading stuff on her cell phone - actually I think it's a mistake but the idea of my 83 year old Mom texting and downloading Metallic ring tones is really funny to me. It's really nice outside. I do wish I could walk a bit. Can't sit outside because the smokers (evil people) are stinkin' up the place. It would be nice if they enforced the rule of no smoking within 25 feet of the entrances. I have nothing against the smokers - there is a nice patio area in the back of the building for them, just some rebels (mostly contractors) refuse to use the "designated areas" and our facilities people do nothing about anything facility related here.

I saw a little bit of DWTS yesterday. Chad was in a 3 way tie for 6th place - not so good. I expected Nicole to do well - tall, gorgeous, looks great in clothes and as the lead kitty Cat Doll - if she can't follow dance training, she needs to hang up her tail - she came in #1 if I remember correctly. Cheryl Burke (the dancer) is my favorite - was hoping she would last longer with Chad who might make up for a lack of skill with determination and dedication. I guess Kate Gosslin or whatever her name is - is being a diva and coming to practice late. Not a favorite on either side of the fence I guess.

They were supposed to power wash the 2nd floor of our house - the wood and panels and DH said they power washed everything including the brick on the first floor, the garage and the walks. That power washer must be fun to operate! Of course it is sunny and relatively warm out and I guess I'd rather be doing that then pulling apart wood trim and dealing with bees and termites and such :yikes: Cost us $250 for the car yesterday. The kid who brought it to us popped it into 4 wheel drive and I so rarely use it that I could not get it out. DH tried and ground the gears - I wanted to say no, no I don't need your help after all! He thought something might be messed up with the differential so he had the service guy look at it. Took 4 guys trying but they finally got it out of 4WD. I think I could have figured it out if they let me, but no, I had to stand there and look blond and dumb. :p

So Laura what do you do with Coal when you go on vacation? Or do you vacation at home? There's actually alot to do in the 3 state area for an over night drive and I find that vacationing that requires flying is no longer interesting to me.

Speaking of vacation Mom and SIL are both really excited about the beach vacation. :beach: It makes me giggle to think of both of them. I hope it does not disappoint.

Good luck on the latest date Annie. There has to be someone somewhere, just can't advise you where to find them. I know if I was alone here, I'd be... well... alone. :rofl: I am not a church monger, or a Republican and the only "at risk" youngin's I'm willing to volunteer with are covered with fur and don't wear pants. :lol3: That takes me out of the eligible pool of fine, upstanding young men.

I don't know if any of your watch the show The Marriage Ref. Last week they had this really cute couple who had been married for 35 years. He just retired and they were at an impasse as to where to move. He wanted to move to Howe, Indiana and go live in Amish country where it was peaceful and quiet (and boring). She on the other hand, said she needed excitement in her life and wanted to move to Los Angeles (he said she was star struck). I sitting there thinging geez, if you go to LA, you will spend most of your retirement buying a tiny stucco shanty in the outskirts of the area and within a year, all your money will be gone - can you say crazy crazy cost of living???? In the end the celebrity panel (Martha Stewart, Jason Alexander and Cedrik the Entertainer) sided with the wife only because they thought the husband was very easy going and would take it in stride if he didn't get his way (which was TRUE) and the wife would make his life a living miserable :censored: if she didn't get her way and had to move among the Amish (which was also true). They were a very cute couple so Annie remember looks aren't everything! :rofl: She had on this funky sweater with these bizzare ribbon looking flowers across the top. Martha said she could show her how to craft prettier flowers for her sweather :lol: It's fun and light entertainment which is what I need after a hard day at the office.

Oops Mom is calling me back. Gotta run. Sorry to take up your time babbling.

annie175 03-24-2010 04:21 PM

Happy..you are too funny, and amazingly I got it the first time you posted it, I am not really blonde. lololololol

diyana 03-24-2010 05:20 PM

Mel - Sounds like you had yourself a smorgasbord of eye candy! Nice!! ;)

Annie - eCVS again, huh? So when are you going out with this guy? Is this one a 43-45 yr old dark haired goateed cutie? Be careful, girlfriend....I'm hoping and praying he's not creepy like the other dude. I think I've talked DH into seeing Alice on Sunday for an "early" anniversary, providing he's not too tired after working all weekend. If he is, then we'll go out Thursday night. He just found out he doesn't have to work Friday! Yay! I'm not sure I deserve the Zumba queen title yet, but I'm getting there. Maybe after I can do an hour long advanced class without wanting to collapse. Glad to hear I'll have you watching me this weekend to keep me on track.

Laura - Sorry that Buzz had the lowest score on DWTS. But I give him props for trying. Good for you for logging your steps and all the exercise you're getting in the evenings.

Happy - Your lunch sounds really good...and I'm not even a big fan of grits. My company strictly enforces the smoking areas...at least during normal business hours. Sometimes when I get in at oh-dark early, there might be one smoker by the door. I get past him quickly so it doesn't bother me too much. I really like Cheryl Burke too. Hopefully he'll improve. I hate Kate Gosselin. Why would the kid put your car in 4 wheel drive when it's not snowy? :dunno: I'm glad it's out of 4x4 now. I haven't watched the Marriage Ref yet. It sounds like it's better than I thought it would be.

Well, time for this chick to head home. Yay!


Love and hugs,
Michelle

happy2bme 03-24-2010 06:40 PM

:rofl: I think there is a porno filter on 3FC. My comment about Nicole S on Dancing With the Stars got modified. She's with the musical group Prissy Cat Dolls - well not really the word prissy but kinda close to that and I see that 3FC changed one of the words to Kitty :lol3:

happy2bme 03-24-2010 06:45 PM

and Michelle - I'm not sure what the kid was doing that brought my car but he somehow popped it into 4 wheel drive by accident. Maybe he wanted to see what happened if he hit the right combo of buttons? Maybe he didn't understand that the BIG handle with PRNDL was the transmission instead of the small knob next to it that was H4, L4 and N???? He admitted he was the oil change guy - apparently you don't have to know how to drive to change oil (but it helps :D ) Anyway he was red-faced and very apologetic. Have a good Zumba night.

Annie - I'm glad you got the joke - I am preparing you for eCVS in case one of the "fellers" tries to bedazzle you with B.S. Hope he turns out to be ok, meet him out front and go across the street for coffee until you can run his prints. :lol:

ceejay52 03-24-2010 11:10 PM

Happy
I started out watching Dancing with the Stars. I must have fallen asleep on the couch while Buzz Aldan was dancing. I give the 80 year old and A for effort. I diffinately do not like Kate Gosslin's long hair. It looks fake.


Annie
We can start Thursday, tomorrow, just set the time. I am going to try and sleep a little later in the morning. I'm going to try the upside down pizza next week.

Michelle
To bad that your dh is having to work on the week end. I'm off this week end but will have to work Easter Sunday.

Laura
I forgot to wear my pedometer today. I'm averaging 2 miles per day. I'd still like to know if you have to do all those steps at one time. I need to start doing more strength exercises.


Mel
Oh my, all those men in uniforms! i would have let one of them take me off on a stretcher. I thought about you this morning. Our insurance meeting was held at the fire department. Not a one of them in a uniform.

Had a busy day at work. From 7-7.30 a.m. we had an insurance meeting, then started the process of draining one of the elevated tanks. It took around 4 and a half hours to drain a 500,000 gallon tank. It went to the system and to the other two elevated tanks. After this I had to watch the guages to find out when the pumps came on and went off. I'm worn out.
Stopped by the gas station to fill up the car with gas and came home and guess what was greeting me at the door. It was almost on the porch--you got it a snake about a foot long. I think it's dead which is causing me some concern (for paybacks etc) I've search the admistrative sight on the camera's but to no avail I still can't find where to rewind those things. So first thing in the morning I'm going to call ADT. It may have crawled up there and some one stomped it. I'm curious. It's been warm the past couple of days. And thank goodness that there was enough daylight left for me to see it. My daddy uses to say where there is one there is a mate.

happy2bme 03-25-2010 09:11 AM

Good morning ladies,

I have an early morning meeting today so that is the big super challenge to get to work on time for it. Think she will make it? :chin: Not if I keep sitting here :lol:

Will catch up with you at lunch.

P.S. I guess I sent all the sunshine up by Mel. It's raining here again. Sorry Ceejay :(

diyana 03-25-2010 10:10 AM

Happy Thursday/Friday -

I'm tired and my muscles are sore. I did an hour of advanced Zumba last night, which included lots of arm work. Tonight is 1/2 hour Zumba and 1/2 hour Strength Training. Heaven help me if we do a lot of arms stuff in the Strength Training class. It's a chilly day here today, very windy and highs only in the low 40s. And since I have a meeting right before WW and no time after, I may have to skip my lunchtime walk, but I'm sure I'll be going up and down the stairs a lot. Oh, I forgot to mention...last week at my doctor appt, I got the results of my fasting blood work: Blood Sugar and HA1C - just fine; Cholesterol - great (admittedly I am on cholesterol meds...but at least they're doing the trick); HDL (good) cholesterol - better than it's ever been (thank you Zumba!). :dancer: All the other stuff they checked was really good too! :woohoo:

Happy - Too funny about 3FCs filter changing the kitty cat doll band name!

Annie - I agree with Happy...definitely meet up with any eCVS dudes in public places. Did I mention that I met DH through a personal ad he placed 20+ years ago? Heck, even though I liked him from the start, it wasn't until our 4th or 5th date that I let him know where I lived. Just can't be too careful.

Ceejay - Bummer that you have to work Easter Sunday. Do you get extra holiday pay at least? Good for you for all that walking, and I look forward to a report on how the 30 day shred is going for you and Annie. A snake by my front door, whether dead or alive, would've startled me to pieces. And in general I like snakes and other reptiles...I just don't like to be surprised by them. I'll bet Mel is right, it was sick and just found a nice place to go to forever sleep.

Mel - Enjoy your relaxing day with Jen!

Shad - When do you start the long drive home? Wishing you very safe travels.
I'm still tracking my food, counting points, drinking water and eating fruits and veggies. I skipped the crunches and planks yesterday, as the Advanced Zumba class is hard enough.

Well, I'd better get some stuff done. I'll check back in later!

Luvya girlfriends,

annie175 03-25-2010 10:52 AM

Morning all...I feel like poo. My throat is killing me, no voice, chest heavy like an elephant is sitting on it, head is splitting and all I wanna do is sleep which is kind of impossible here at work.

One of my BFs lost her job this past Monday after 30 years. She is devastated. SHe was the Retail Marketing & Trade Show Manager for Audiovox, first with Thomson/RCA then Audiovox bought out Thomson/RCA. Her son's wife left him this past Monday also. I told her she has had her one day to "whoa is me", now on to the positive side of things. My boss here has given me a lead for her, also my brother's company has already been considering her for a position. Good things to come.

A Purdue college student was found in his car in a retention pond in an elite neighborhood. Apparently drove into the pond and drown. Not sure the cause as he was leaving a party and also had just had hernia surgery days before. ANYWAY, that family is personal friend's with my boss. My boss has come into the office the past two days with bloodshot eyes from crying. Bless her heart.

So when visiting momma last night, I said, looks like your are getting a new roommate as her other one went home. She said yes and she hoped it was a man cause she was gonna rape him. I about passed out laughing. Keep in mind momma can only move her right arm, hand and scoot her legs around on the bed. She is a hoot. I told her not to as she might get preggers with twins. lol

eCVS....the guy has not called me yet so no worries. Heck he may not even call at all. I am down with the meeting up at places before making any other arrangements.

Ceejay...I am going to postpone my start of the 30 day shred as I can barely breath and want to go to bed when I get home. I am just run down.

Chelle...you Zumba momma you....glad the tests came back good. THat in itself makes a person feel better. It is 40s and windy here today also. No wonder I am sick.

MELLIE..I can't vouch for eWalgreens however since eCVS and eWalgreen's are usually across the corner from each other, it is probably the same "men pool", so Jen would have her pickins. lol

Happy..get your heiny movin' and get to work....

Shaddie...must be traveling, be safe sista.

Laura...trust me, not only have I kissed enough frogs, they have given me one hellava chest cold, plus laryngitis. Men..sheesh..are they good for ANYTHING??? Well maybe one thing, and that isn't all that good.~wink~

Hey to anyone I missed, going to heat up my green tea w/honey. I have let it get too cool.

Love and sanitary hugs.


diyana 03-25-2010 11:54 AM

Annie - I hope you feel better very, very soon. No chance you can take a sick day off work so you can rest? I hope you don't have to work at CVS. You need lots of rest and lots of liquids - good for you with the green tea and honey. Sending lots of healing :hug: and :goodvibes: your way. Take it easy, girlfriend.

annie175 03-25-2010 12:15 PM

I could take a sick day but don't feel sick enough to stay home. Does that make sense? Probably not. I would rather be here at work and contaminate everyone else. lol

happy2bme 03-25-2010 02:49 PM

ok, lunch-a-bunch time. Munching on some leftover grilled chicken with a divine mustard sauce, steamed broccoli with garlic crumbs and a few bits of leftover baked potato with dill seasoning. I would have shared if you asked :lol: Annie - I will give you my garden vegetable soup since I'm stuffed and you could probably use it.

Please don't infect your co-workers and customers. There is a very nasty thing going around town here that is making people really sick with sinunitis and bronchitis. The kind of thing that comes back around again after you think you got rid of it. I don't want to go out in public. So go home Annie, take some Nyquil and zonk out for about 10 hours. You'll be chipper in time for the weekend. Your momma story was a real hoot! :lol:

Michelle - careful with those arms tonight. I know it was just probably enthusiastic swinging but you have to give the muscles a chance to heal. Don't make more tears with weights. I'm sure you can pace yourself. I'm so glad your numbers are good with the blood tests. That's a bit of a reinforcement and a positive motivator. Results!! :cp: I hope you have a good WI today.

Mel - I hope you and Jen have some nice quiet time together today. No, Mom did not download anything - both of us knew she wouldn't have the foggiest, but I had to ask before I chewed someone out in customer service :D Perhaps if Jen is on her own, you can both go shopping at Trader Joe's for new ones. Or just wander over to the firestation and ask them if anyone needs lotion applied -skin must be rough and dry under all those heavy suits :rofl:

Ceejay - I have read on several occasions that you don't have to do a mile walk all at once. In fact some believe that multiple sessions of 10 to 15 minutes are even better for you than a single bout. I would agree, if eating mini meals several times a day is good, so would exercise I think.

Laura - are you off today or just really busy?

Shad - did we lose you in the packing materials or are you busy writing 15 different handbooks?

I know we aren't supposed to talk about politics but the antics in Washington have me really worried. We are becoming a country divided with some putting words in other's mouths and bulldozing things and threats and all sorts of ugly stuff. I sincerely wonder between all the issues and the weather and natural disasters, are we really coming to an end of days? If anyone knows, let me know because if that's the case, I'm going for one last super vacation to spend the retirement and I think I'll have one last pack of smokes - away from the entrance door of course ;)

time for me to get back to work. See yah.

annie175 03-25-2010 03:16 PM

Happy...I often wonder if it is the end of times myself or at least getting there. Maybe there is something to the December 2012 thing. I tell you, I have never felt as close to God as I have in the past few months and the things I have been praying for are so out of character for me, it is all good, but new to me. I have even been listening to a Christian radio station (at home, work and in the car) for a couple of months and really really really liking it. Something is compelling me towards a deeper relationship with HIM. I know this is a heavy subject but whatever it is, I am liking it.
