A nice BIG salad

When I was in Upstate New York I would go to this restaurant that would make the most amazing salads.  I really miss being able to get one of those…sigh.
Since I am at the Commissary I am planning on making my own “Big Salad” (low carb of course)…so I am off to forage for a healthy salad.

Nervous

Tomorrow I have to board a plane and go to California for three days.  This is my first time traveling without the kids or my husband.  This is my first TDY.  I am not nervous about the meeting, I will either understand what is going on or just sit there and nod…making like I know what is going on.  It is the plane.  I hate planes.  I hate them almost as much as I hate horses (and my friends KNOW that I am terrified of those evil creatures).  I just cannot see where it is safer to fly than it is to drive.  The whole falling out of the sky thing is getting to me…
The kids are giving me the famous Chilli and Blizz (minature Beanie Babies) to take on the plane with me.  That is very sweet of them and I know that they will protect me…
So I am nervous.
Let me go and check what the weather is in Sacramento tomorrow…

STARVING!!!

Still doing the detox thing with my Cranwater.  The thing is I started to do Taebo again and I am finding myself starving.  I can control what goes in my mouth…I just wish it was easier.  I took some pictures of myself before I did my Taebo yesterday.  Those will be the before pictures.  I am going to try to start the 21 day challenge thing with Taebo to see if I actually will have results..or if I am just nutty and see what I want to see.
The Cranwater is doing wonders with my stomach and the cellulite is really going away.  That is wonderful since I am not a spring chicken anymore.  I found a couple of Taebo DVDs that I never opened and it is just like I have new ones. 
Now I am focusing on being hungry.  My co-workers need to hurry the hell up.  i am about to chew off my arm…
I’ll be back later…

Totally Messed Up…

…so I am sitting here enjoying some pizza and watching boxing.  My daughter is talking. And talking. And talking.  She is a chatterbox tonight and seems to be talking to hear herself talk.  It is nice to see her chatting.
Then the Child says:

“So this is what you did…You got Daddy to knock you up so then he would get married to you.”

Really messed up man. And why is the Husband agreeing with her?? 😀
I am going to go and watch my boxing now. 

Wow!!

More than one post in a day??  Who would have thunk it?? 😀  One of the things that sucks about being the Secretary for a store is I am in the middle of things.  Even if I don't want to be…I get sucked in.  Today one of the people that I work with (and I like) was stopped at the Gate.  That is not unusual…what is unusual is they had a pallet full of bread from the store.  Shit.  I had to answer the phone…I had to get supervisors…I had to ring up UPC codes.  I am also the time keeper so I had to do AWOL.  This person has worked for the Government for almost 30 years and it seems his stay here will end over bread that is worth less than 50.00.  It doesn't matter how much you take from Uncle Sugar…you steal from him and that is your butt.  Now I am writing Memos and making statements and this is when I hate being in Admin.  You may like the people that are getting in trouble…
Sigh…
The bright spot of this whole thing…I wasn't able to take lunch today so I can leave early today.  I think I will surprise the kids with some McDonald's…it is Friday and Family Fun Night.  I need to find a nice scary movie the kids and I can watch…
Things to do memos to write…
Later

Grrr…

JUST because I have banana yellow nails I am deciding to break them one by one.  I went to look for some files and in one swoop I broke 4 nails on one hand.  It is very painful.  Now I am sitting here with my hands looking like crap and I have a class that I need to attend.  I think I will get them shorter just because I tend to be very hands on at work and at home…
I still have a headache, so I think I will look for something to eat.  Maybe some chicken??  I think I will grow feathers some day. 😀

Detoxing….

I am detoxing my system.  Apparently I have lots of toxins in my system because I have a headache from Hell right now.  I am hoping this passes soon.  I am tired of walking around with a big head all the time.
I am writing from work again because this seems the only time I can get on the computer without every teenager in the house sitting on my shoulder like a parrot.  I am officially in Teenage Hell.  When the phone rings it is no longer for me…the computers are in use constantly and the music that is being played is confusing to say the least.  The Boy has a "girlfriend" that calls every single day and every single day they are getting into an argument.  The young ladies here on post have discovered that my son is cute and now they are starting to call at all hours of the night.  The Girl has friends.  A teenage girl that has friends and has discovered 3-way calling.  There was one time that I thought the child was crazy…but she was talking to two different people.  I remember being that age and having the phone in my ear at all times.  I am trying to be understanding, but this is starting to get old.  I do not get any phone calls anymore…the phone is either busy or just ringing because they are not answering it.  I think it is time for a teen meeting…they are not contributing to the phone and Internet bills so I think they need to have limits or I will just cut off the service.  It is not like I have any access to the outside world from my house anyway.  I do have a cell phone but for some reason I feel stupid talking on it…I don't know why but I always have to repeat myself or have people repeat themselves…to time consuming…too complicated. 😀 Continue reading

Awww and YIKES!!

Look how young the children look!! Yikes! I look terrible!!  This is at a Chinese restaurant that we went to in Germany….they would charge you double if you took more food from the buffet than you could eat (you had to be part of the "clean plate" club to eat there) and they would pretty much tell you that you LIKE duck wheter you wanted it or not… that was taken almost two years ago. 

In the Beginning…

I thought this was funny so I am going to share:

In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the earth and populated the Earth with broccoli, cauliflower and spinach, green and yellow and red vegetables of all kinds, so Man and Woman would live long and healthy lives.
Then using God's great gifts, Satan created Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream and Krispy Creme Donuts. And Satan said, "You want chocolate with that?" And Man said, "Yes!" and Woman said, "and as long as you're at it,
add some sprinkles." And they gained 10 pounds. And Satan smiled.
And God created the healthful yogurt that Woman might keep the figure that Man found so fair. And Satan brought forth white flour from the wheat, and sugar from the cane and combined them. And Woman went from size 12 to size 18.
So God said, "Try my fresh green salad." And Satan presented Thousand-Island Dressing, buttery croutons and garlic toast on the side. And Man and Woman unfastened their belts following the repast.
God then said, "I have sent you heart healthy vegetables and olive oil in which to cook them." And Satan brought forth deep fried fish and chicken-fried steak so big it needed its own platter. And Man gained more weight and his cholesterol went through the roof.
God then created a light, fluffy white cake, named it "Angel Food Cake," and said, "It is good." Satan then created chocolate cake and named it "Devil's Food."
God then brought forth running shoes so that His children might lose those extra pounds. And Satan gave cable TV with a remote control so Man would not have to toil changing the channels. And Man and Woman
laughed and cried before the flickering blue light and gained pounds.
Then God brought forth the potato, naturally low in fat and brimming with nutrition. And Satan peeled off the healthful skin and sliced the starchy center into chips and deep -fried them. And Man gained pounds.
God then gave lean beef so that Man might consume fewer calories and still satisfy his appetite. And Satan created McDonald's and its 99-cent double cheeseburger. Then said, "You want fries with that?"And Man replied, "Yes! And super size them!" And Satan said, "It is good." And Man went into cardiac arrest.
God sighed and created quadruple bypass surgery. Then Satan created HMOs. (and military hospitals)
