Why??

Someone that I have been trying to hide from…someone that irritated the living hell out of me while I was in Germany sent me a picture of herself.  On my phone.  WHY?? 😀  Seriously I must look like someone that wants to look at her face on my fecking phone.  If I don’t call you or answer the phone when you call take the hint.  I definitely do not want a picture of you.  Sigh..
I am out of the funk that I have been in for the pst two weeks so I decided that I would pamper myself and get my nails, feet and eyebrows done.  The trifecta…woohoo!!  My feet are so happy!!
The Girl has a sore throat and is really sick.  What a time to get sick right before Labor Day.  I was planning on taking a trip to a winery or maybe taking them to the festival that is going on in the city…but now it seems like I will be nursing her back to health.  I think I will let her stay home tomorrow and get some much needed sleep…
Tired right now…I think I will go and get some sleep…
Later

Time to get serious

Can you believe it has been almost 3 weeks since The Hero has left for the sandbox??  Time is moving at top speed around here.  It is amazing…but I also know that when the Holidays come around that is when it will seem like time will stand still.  Maybe not…I do have my Brother and his family to glom on to and they are already putting in Gumbo requests.  😀  I guess I could cook the whole dinner and that would ensure I stay on track with my eating…
Anyway…
I will start doing cardio in the mornings and strength training in the evenings.  Something wonderful has happened…the Boy is interested in using the Home Gym and I will not stop him.  He has zero body fat so I know that he will pick up some muscle if he starts to lift seriously.  😀 😀
My appetite is going away again which means I am in serious Ketosis.  My stomach hasn’t been this flat in years (not since Ft Drum when I was in great shape) so i will take advantage of this and start in with the cardio (about 45 minutes to an hour) first thing in the morning.  When I do that I usually start dropping pounds and inches at the same time.  inches are nice, but sometimes it feels good to see the results on the scale as well.  I am up 5 pounds this week…I think it is because I broke in fast that I was on accidentally and it is close to my time of the month.  I will check my weight in two weeks and post the results of the “amping the program” experiment.
I know this is kind of like a private joke between me and certain friends…but it looks like I may ACTUALLY end up on the cover of Women’s Fitness or Oxygen. I have decided to enter a couple of contests.  Wouldn’t that be karmatic justice??  😀

Had to do it…

This morning when I awoke I smelled the most horrible thing.  I find it and it was puszzling since I was up late cleaning the house last night.  It was coming from my daughter’s room.  She lets the dog sleep in there and apparently she couldn’t smell what the hell I was smelling.  It was early this morning so I let it go and went to work.  I decided in a nano second when I picked her up from school today that she was cleaning her room.  Normally when I bitch about the teens rooms I send them upstairs and I let them do it themselves.  This time I decided that I would stay in there and make her do it herself.  Maybe she will learn and keep it clean…the room looks like a different world now.  I made her move furniture and everything…she had to rearrange that place really bad…anyway I had to do it.  I enforced my will and won against a hormonal teenager.  One point for me…

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!

I am so goddamned tired of people NOT following directions when it comes to the Security checks.  They KNOW that they need to fill out the forms completely.  THEY know that it will be returned if they do not answer or omit anything.  So…why am I getting these forms back like this.  Feck it…I am tired. I am not holding hands anymore…I am officially pissed off.  If they do not want the job then don’t fill out the forms completely.  If you want to work for the Government…act like you can read and follow the instructions that are given to you.
I don’t feel better but it is a start…

Put my foot in it…

That is a term that someone says when a person really does well with a dish.  Everyone loved the Mirliton…even if it was started late.  It was the last dish that was completed and it was half gone in a matter of minutes.  One of my brother’s friends said “That Girl can COOK!” (patting myself on the back) I am happy when people like my food.  I put lots of effort into what I give to people.  I should know how to cook by now…I am 37. 😀
Anyway…I am sitting at work, which is tiring since I have about a half hour to go and I really need to get something done.  I think I may leave a little early.  I am the only one that is left in the office.  I do have the feeling that as soon as I leave then someone will call and I will be busted.  Sigh…I have been having that type of luck lately.  I guess I been here this long I might as well finish out the day.  Hell I am accruing leave anyway.
Today I start in on the program that I have stored on my computer.  It is a workout for people who need to get into shape for PT…but it works for civilians just as good.  If a soldier uses it to pass a PT test then I can use it for what I need.  Gonna break in the new Gym hopefully it will work out like I want it to…I am just too tired at the end of the day to drive to the Post Gym.
I have some things on my desk to finish up…I will post more later.

So Happy…

Being a New Orleanian I love when I can find a site that is written by a local.  I found the blog and I am hoping he continues to post different recipes.  I am always on the lookout for a new way to cook one of my favorites.  Okay…now I have to get going to start cooking…I will post later when I get home…

Running Behind…

Crap…I have to get ready to go to my sister in law’s house and I also have to go shopping.  I got stuck watching Flavor of Love and now I am running behind.  She wants me to make stuffed mirliton and also some potato salad.  Mirliton is a type of squash (they call it Chayote here) that I stuff with bread crumb, crab meat, a little shrimp, and the trinity of seasoning that we all use in New Orleans.  My family loves it and I am glad to give them something that reminds them of home.  FIRST…I have to fix my hair..it is a hot mess.  That is what happens when I wash it and let it dry naturally…it curls up.  It is so bad I don’t even want to venture into the Commissary looking that way…so I am off to fix the hair and to go grocery shopping…

Pretty Quiet…

The Girl is at a movie…the Boy is online and I am cooking myself a steak.  For some reason I am hungry…really hungry.  I hope the steak hits the spot.  I don’t want to mess up all the hard work that I have been putting in because I am bored and want some ice cream…
Sigh…
Gonna watch Blade now…

Trying this Again…

Okay…I had a bad experience a while ago with having my photos on my blog.  I am going to try this again.  I decided to start uploading photos to Flickr so family and friends can see them.  If i get the HUZZ from anyone then I will password protect that as well.  😀
The photos are on the bottom…
Laters!

What is wrong with people??

So I am cleaning my house and I left my messenger open from talking to my friend in Germany.  I guess I am dumb in trying to configure the messenger because I get a IM from someone in the area.  Of course the ass was married and he is trying to chat up with me.  Before I can press ignore he is asking me if i am open minded.   It is 2 in the afternoon and I am being propositioned to cyber.  He was ignored of course….but I am wondering what in hell would make anyone think that I am willing to do anything at 2 in the afternoon.  I wanted to tell him to go to his wife.  But it was better just to IG the hell out of him…  This is why I don’t talk to people online…there is something wrong with them (most of them not all of them)…
Jeez!
