Ah…the perils of having a latte at 7:30 pm.

Ah…the perils of having a latte at 7:30 pm. It was a truly productive day. I did go to the gym (26 minutes on treadmill, thigh squeezes, 60 stomach crunches, 10 assisted chinups) AND I went to the grocery store!

I also got Dierdre the Pain up to level 69…if I get in a good “Valley of Death” fellow, I think I can hit 70 before the weekend.

I have only 4 hours of sleep ahead of me – and that’s only because I took my shower this evening. G’night!

I. Am. SO. Tired.

I. Am. SO. Tired.

Wt: 139.2 — I marvel at how my body can get on track so much easier now than it used to. My metabolism is almost what it used to be when I was younger. Then again, I ate much better when I was younger, too.
Mood: Soggy. It’s raining. AGAIN. I’m going to the beach on Saturday. I don’t care if I have to wear a sweatsuit, gloves, and a rain poncho. I will sit my derrierre on the sand in defiance of the crummy spring that Mother Nature has delivered.
Work docket: Online Mall. Recipe update/repair. There is a post-it-note with the word “Seabiscuit” on my keyboard from my boss. Don’t worry, he’s not crazy. I know what he’s talking about.
Lunch: I brought a Smart Ones chicken meal, PLUS two Bumblebee tuna lunch kits that were on sale at Genuardi’s for only 99 cents each. Those will save me on the days where I *say* I’m going out, but am too lazy to do so.
Afternoon: I’m going to take a nap…because it’s Wednesday and ….
Evening: I have yoga at 7:30 and a guild festival meeting at 9:00.

I heard a remake of “Boys of Summer” this morning. Am I really that old that the songs I went to Jr. High with are now being remade? (shudder)

I’m baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!

I’m baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!

Wt: 141.2. (smirk)
Mood: Happy to be home, but jealous because the Blackwells are going to WDW AGAIN next week and we’re not! Waaaaaaaah!
Work docket: Static, Hand section stuff, get my bearings after being away.
Lunch: Will get a salad.
Afternoon: MUST MUST MUST get back to the gym.
Evening: Coffee and coping at *bux at 7:00.

Well, how was the trip? We went to Vickburg National Military Park on Friday. David’s reunion on Saturday was terrible, but we all know that about high school reunions — he just had to learn that for himself. There were some definate awkward periods, but for me to paint all Southerners with one brush would make me just as guilty as those who assume that I sound like one of the Sopranos and live in a treeless concrete jungle where you’re mugged on a daily basis. Being prompted by someone at the reunion to say something in front of a little girl so that the little girl could hear the closest thing to hearing a foreigner speak was the low point, by far. Insensitive people are everywhere, regardless of geographical location.

RIP David Brinkley. I read his autobiography some years ago, and found it fascinating. He was one of the last class acts of journalism. Having George Stephanopoulous in charge of “This Week” probably put the last nail in his coffin.

More later..

Edited to add on 9/11/2007: My God, this trip to Mississippi completely sucked. This is an example of how I really sugarcoated some things on this blog

Worked on recipes all day.

funky key!Worked on recipes all day. Some of my database was corrupted, so I had to extract those recipes that were messed up and re-upload the database. I had to take out over 100 recipes. :( However, I don’t think it’ll take me long to get them back online. Baked potato for lunch as planned. On the way home I mailed the Father’s Day cards as planned.

I was going to go to Home Depot for the spare key, but Damon said I’d have a better shot at getting one quickly at my local Hardware store. Very good idea on his part. I swung by Voorhees Hardware and lo and behold….personali-keys! I’ve never seen a cuter thing. Naturally, I had to get one, which you can see to the right. I’ll keep this one for me and make the plain silver one our spare.

Filled up the bird feeder. And watered the plants. The sunflowers have sprouted nicely, and I’ve finally seen a peep of Cilantro. (No appearance yet from Basil and Oregano)
