Dear Diary Friday....

HAPPY DAY! Friday is here!!!

Dylan has been given the opportunity for as much OT next week as he can handle....thanks to our AWESOME economy! Don't know if you heard, but in the first minute of the bell sounding today, the Dow dropped 660 points! Yeah, it's great what fear can do to the average citizen.

So, have to share how adorable my new "baby" is. Charlie has turned out to be the prettiest of our cats. He is all white, the ears, the face, and tips of his paws are dark chocolate....and he is completely a "Mama's boy". He has to be sitting on my lap when I am sitting, has to have his face in my face, wants me to kiss him on the "lips" or at the very least, on his face and head, and LOVES to be snuggled up with me anywhere I am. He also has started coming in when I am putting my make up to sit on the sink and stare at me and then follows me to the bedroom and cries and cries and cries while I am getting ready for work...and then stands up on his hind legs while he is on the bed so that he can "hug me" when I bend down. Oh gawd, he makes me feel like shit every day I leave him!!! It will just be so interesting to see how this new baby does with all of the upcoming holidays. So far, he has been really good with all of the Halloween decorations...but we are not finished decorating yet. Hopefully he will stay good....

Dear Diary Thursday....

Is it me, or does anyone get tired of having to be the "responsible" person and reminding the same person(s) over and over and over again on things? Yeah, I'm there with a couple of people.....

Good news! I was almost to the point that I was disgruntled and was going to quit the diet because I was not seeing a "significant" weight loss....and then I got on the scale this morning and I was down 3.5lbs! WOOOHOOO! That is a total of 5.9 lbs in 6 days. Then I decided to read up on it and it is very normal to go a couple of days without weight loss and then all of a sudden...DOWN.

Other good news.....I am getting my hair cut and colored again tonight and am EXCITED! I am going to go a dark brown all over, hopefully I can find something that is a richer brown than what I am getting. Now....just gotta decide on the cut!

Dear Diary Tuesday...

Oh good gawd, sometimes people just bug the FUCK out of me! Especially people who do not have it in their heart, or soul, to be able to be supportive of somebody who is trying to lose weight!!! Yeah, yeah, yeah....I am probably not doing it the safest way, but guess the fuck what?! I talked to my doctor about it and she researched it and IT IS SAFE. And I also have changed the diet a bit so that I am eating breakfast, since I have medication I need to take in the morning, so I am actually getting MORE calories that the diet states. But people just can't be supportive and pat you on the back for your efforts. Now, I have been a concerned friend, and I have expressed concerns to friends if they are doing something I thought was risky, but at the end of the day, it is THEIR decision and I will support and love them regardless of what they decide....especially if it is something that will make them HAPPY. Isn't that was being a good friend is about? You express your mind, but still let that person know you love them and will support them??? Oh well....I need to step back and realize that not everyone is the same as I am.

On a different note, a very good friend of mine had her mother pass today. Even though it is a blessing that this lady is now out of horrible pain, it still brought me to tears just to know that my friend is hurting. May the Goddess be with her and her family in the time of need and bring them peace.

And can I just say how happy I am that the weekend is ALMOST HERE! WOOOO HOOOOOO!!!!After a week full of physical therapy, doctor's appointments, hair appointments, and starting to take care of the in-laws house as they are in St. George, a weekend is much needed and appreciated. Now if I can just get my arse in gear to get some REAL projects done!

Dear Diary Monday....

The weekend was AWESOME! I left work early on Friday and got home and got the yard ready for winter....mowed, the roses trimmed, plants pulled up, everything weeded. Poor Dylan had a really bad time sleeping so he slept a little late and was not able to help me. However, he was a sweetheart and went and got us dinner.

Saturday, we got up and did a whole bunch of running around and had lunch/dinner at the Spaghetti Factory. I have not had that for so long that it actually was delicious! I got such a huge amount that I ended up having to take about 3/4 of it home and we had it for dinner.

Sunday...we relaxed the entire day.....and it was great.

This was the weekend that I started my new diet. Friday and Saturday was suppose to be my "load up" day where you eat everything and anything to load up your body with calories. Well, I can't do that. I tried and tried and tried but I actually was not even remotely hungry those two days. However, then Sunday rolled around and that is the day that I started the food part of the diet, and of course, hungry all day long!!! I hated it! I cheated so many times yesterday that I was surprised I didn't gain 10 lbs. But, when I got on the scale today, down 2.5 lbs so I was pretty happy.

Good news....I got my nails redone and they are beautiful. I found a new place and I completely love, love, LOVE it. It is very state of the art, very clean, use all of the newest tools...and are friendly and informative. Just loved it. Now I am going to be getting new hair this week, so I will be all shades of happy!
