As soon as they decide to make me full time a position (2 grades higher) appears that I am perfect for. I am not sure what to do. I guess I could apply, the only thing that they will tell me is NO. That is something that I have been seeing and hearing from these Yahoos since I got here.
I have to get back to work…


One word…
I don’t think I will be needing the Bootcamp Elite workouts. Not for a couple of months anyway. I completed the Basic Bootcamp…55 whole minutes of Billy sweating into the camera. I am going to follow his plan. Shit, I paid enough for this set it is about time that I use it properly. He has a eating plan involved that looks suspiciously like South Beach. It is a low carby thing that he recommends that you follow. All I have to say is I am GLAD that I lost some weight and put some muscle on my frame or I would look like a dying elephant on the floor instead of a retarded giraffe. Gonna set some small goals with this one. The first one being to complete a week of workout and clean eating. That shouldn’t be hard. One week at a time, Folks. It is starting to get a bit warm and I be damned if I will go through another summer with cellulite on my legs. Cellulite tanned looks like browned cottage cheese. YUCK!
Off to drink some much needed water and to get ready for work…


I AM READY TO TAEBO. I have been playing around long enough. I have to get ready for work soon so it is now or never. I wonder if my joints can take Billy this time around. Gotta move my booty to acheive the MILF status!!
Wish me luck…
I will need it!

A Couple of Pictures…

…of my new haircut and my newly reshaped eyebrows. It is amazing what a good cut and the whacking of the caterpillers will do for a Girl’s look! 😀 I am playing around at work in these pcitures…Yep I am a busy woman!! Not bad for a 36 year old… be nice!


…WITH TAEBO that is!! This morning I was up early because of the cat and the fact that I have to get used to waking up in time for my fulltime position starting next week. At the wee hours of the morning infomercial are the only thing that is on. I was flipping through the channels and I saw a familiar face. My Man, Billy Blanks was on the screen sweating and smiling. He has a new program. A new Bootcamp with new bands. It took everything out of me not to pick up the phone and call. I have the first Bootcamps and I know that they work. They are hard and I need to get myself back into the swing of actually DOING THEM! He is offering the same things with a different band and a few new moves. I think it is a sickness. I need to have everything that Billy Blanks puts out. Maybe it is because he worked closely with the troops in Iraq and got tips from them. That he worked out with them and filmed one of his workouts (which I have) in Iraq. I don’t know, but I am maintaining control over myself and I will do the workout that I have (for exactly one month) to see if it is worth me spending more money on workout DVDs. I figure if I stick to the original Billy plan for the month then that means I am serious. I still wrote down all the information and my palm is itching to buy…but I will wait. But folks, it is BOOTCAMP ELITE…so that means it is something new.
I need help.
I will be back later…I am going to do some Basic Bootcamp and I will see how I feel later…

Busy Day Ahead….

I have a busy day ahead of me. I am planning on washing the clothes and getting the house smelling like Pine Sol. It was Simple Green but now I am addicted to the smell of pine oil. It just smells cleaner. The Husband is still acting like a complete child, but after being with this individual for 15 years I am used to his actions. This time however…I am going to honor his request. I will leave him alone. Just like Greta Garbo…be alone… he can sit on his self- imposed island. I have gotten used to being with myself and I am very good at ignoring a person. It will be like he isn’t even here. I noticed that this time the kids are ignoring him as well. It was bound to happen, they are older and they don’t like it when he throws his tantrums. My daughter didn’t even tell him Good Night last night. He slept on the couch and I had the bed to myself. I wonder how long this can last? I did ignore him this summer for about two months where I didn’t call or check up on him. I just shut off. I am doing that more and more these days. I think it is because I am older and I have no patience for stupidity. He was the one that was doing the messed up things and now he wants to be mad. Be mad and stick your head in a paper bag is what I say. I tried to talk to him last night and he wanted to be a Dick. Good. Now I am going to be a Bitch. I am very good at it and I can last a long time. There is no need for screaming and stuff, the kids don’t deserve that. The house is big enough where I don’t have to have anything to do with him at all. I have been the constant in his life…now he can see what it is like to lose the one person that actually gave a shit. I just won’t say anything. I will still be in the house, do the chores (I like a clean house) and go about my day to day business. I cannot interact with someone who doesn’t respect me. I have three words for him “Kiss My Ass”.
Wow…that vent felt good!
The Girl and I have to straighten our hair…we both have curly wavy crap on our heads and it just doesn’t look good with the cut that we have. Right now we are walking around with rags on our heads. I look like a family of mice is living in there. I have to get used to using the flat iron because I am always burning my head. That is a pain like no other and I know that women who use various irons like me know what I am talking about. I still feel the burn, so I think some Neosporin is necessary. I don’t want to lose my hair in that spot, that is all that I need…a bald spot on the side of my head. I could always say that it is a fashion statement. Hell, I may even stripe the other side and say I spent tons of money on it.
Speaking of money…My Brother and K found a GREAT deal on a new car! It is a nice Ford, red, with tinted windows. There are a couple of dings in it (minor ones) a small scratch (looks like the sellers were having remorse and keyed the car) and it has less than 100000 miles on it…the Blue Book Value on it is 3000.00…They paid…

I was stunned. $800.00 for a $3000.00 car. Brother wanted to take it to a lot and get the money for it (and he could have). But his wife needs the extra car more. That was the deal of the century if you ask me. $800.00. I told them to make a sign(one with lights and neon) and put it on the car. They should even think about getting a personalized plate that says “EGHTHNRD” on it just to remind themselves how great the deal was… Everyone that they told (including me) was stunned when they tell them the price. They had a little problem with the people before hand and they were really adamant about buying the car. Now I understand why. Brother even said that the guy was stunned when he saw the bill of sale…I guess he forgot about the price he gave them. Good Deal, Lou! I am so happy that you guys got a nice second car!!
The cat is on borrowed time. I woke up yesterday morning and discovered that he was able to get into the trash can (the damned cat has thumbs) and took out food. This is getting ridiculous and I am noticing that everything we tell him “NO”, he starts to pull out his fur. It helps to ignore him. I sneaked a peek at him and he was staring at us in the middle of pulling out his fur. He stopped when he noticed that we were ignoring him (that and a loud clapping noise), went to his food and started to eat it. I guess he is realizing that he is not people afterall. 😀 😀 Good. I would hate to get rid of him because he has a behavior problem.
I am going back on Induction. I like the way that I feel when I am low carbing. I haven’t gained any weight and it is amazing that I am still in Ketosis. So I am jumping back on the Atkins Induction phase before I am thrown out of Ketosis. It is possible to remain in the fat burning phase and incorporate vegetables and fruits with the Atkins Plan. Lots of people believe that this is a meat and fat diet. It is so far from the truth. I just don’t eat sugar, flour, processed crap. I am doing the same thing that Oprah does and she doesn’t get slammed for what she is doing. When I am at work I am noticing that the ladies are bringing in stuff that I cannot eat and then they try to force that crap on me. I have been dieting for a long time and I am used to saying no to things that I cannot eat. They look at me like I am an alien and then say that I am killing myself and that they couldn’t eat like that. So, don’t eat like me. I am doing what I want to do and I am not making you eat like me. I drink my water (and my Coke Zero) eat my salads, lean meats, and stay away from the sugar and the breads. I am leaning up and I look good. That is all that I need to keep me going…
I need to start cleaning up in here. I have the house to myself (Greta left in a huff) so I can get some things done in peace. I hope I have a long time…
I will be back online later…I have to download some things for my Sims2 (the new expansion pack is awesome)…

Lost a Post

I lost a post and it is just as well. It was about me being irritated and pissed with the Husband. I guess it wasn’t meant for me to post what I was thinking afterall.
I am just tired.
I will be back later.

So Cold…

It is extremely cold in this office today. The air conditioners in this place work like a dream. I think they work too well, Just like the one in my house…the constant state there is cold. Even in the summertime.

I am so stoked that I am finally getting fulltime work. I told the Boss that I wouldn’t leave and I really meant it. I like being comfortable in my job. I am comfortable here, so the only thing that would make me leave is a GS-7 position with the Housing office.

There was a luncheon today for two people and I am finding it increasingly hard to stay low carb around here. The one thing that is saving my figure is the fact that I exercise. Yesterday I was feeling horrible (I ate Sushi from a buffet the night before…so stupid)…so there was no cardio done. I will make up for that tonight by doing Taebo and then heading to the Gym for weights.

I will be back later, I have payroll to complete. I don’t want the employees to come after to me with fire and pitchforks because their time is incorrect!



I am in the process of doing Time and Attendance…which is pissing me off. I know that each and everyone of the people that I am processing can follow simple fecking directions. I cannot accept the excuse that since you are a Wage Grade employee (Blue Collar) instead of a GS (white collar) you cannot understand the concept of putting in the correct time. Just copy your schedule off the piece of paper and put it on the time card. My father was a Wage Grade employee with the Government and I know for a fact that he is able to follow directions. Especially when it came to his money. They all know how to contact the Union and EEO…but ask them to count the number of hours that they work in a day?? They are threatening the Union on me. I only report what you give me, I do not read minds.

<end rant>

I am on my way to a meeting with the Big Boss. Why is it I always have to go somewhere or get a picture taken of me when my hair is acting like an ass?? It would not cooperate with the flat iron (yes, I iron my hair. The lack of humidity is wonderful for hairstyles) and there is one piece that is standing up circa Alfalfa from the Little Rascals. At least I am not channeling Buckwheat these days. That was a possibility when I was living in moist lands. I cannot even think about what my head would look like if it was humid out.

I just did a resignation for one of the workers here. They quit because the Commissary wouldn’t work around his second job schedule. The second job pays 2.00 less an hour. I don’t understand that one at all. The Commissary was the main job for him and he decided that he just would quit. I guess he wanted the Supervisors to tell him that they didn’t want him to quit. To PLEASE reconsider and they will do what he wants them to do…Guess what? His feelings were hurt because they were like…Okay…see you later. What some people (the teens) don’t understand is this: It is extremely hard to get on with the Government in the States. I was fortunate enough to get into the system by living overseas. Prior to Germany I had been applying and waiting for employment for 6 years. There is a list of about 200 people wanting to filling the positions that the Commissary offers. That is why they do not care if they lose an employee. It sucks, but it is a fact. This kid is about to get married….I hope everything works out for him. He was 19. I would have had a child about 18 or so if I hadn’t miscarried, so I look at him like a kid. I hope he makes better decisions as he gets older.

<jumping off my box>

Okay Folks, I actually have to get some things taken care of before I have to leave for this meeting. I will be posting again tonight…



It is finally official…I will be Full Time effective April 2, 2006. This takes a big load off my shoulders, I will be able to take care of bills that need my attention, save some money for trips, pay some bills (I did mention that before, but it is great to say it again), and just be comfortable between pay periods. They approved it…and it is about time!

I have some more to post about, but I have to get my thoughts in order. I was sick as a dog this morning from eating Sushi the night before. I think Sushi is the best invention since sliced bread, but when you eat it at a Buffet Style Chinese Restaurant you are asking for trouble. I got trouble in the form of stomach cramps and other unpleasantries. NOT COOL. Anyway, I do have more to say, but I am at work and it is hard to concentrate. I just wanted to let my three fans know that I am finally in the world of the Full Time Employee…

I will be back later, I promise…
