    Good evening,

    Just spent money to buy 3 pair of pants and same amount to buy not much groceries. Too stunned to speak.

    It is Friday and it is wonderful. Steps are down, but I cant flog myself too much. I am also tired by weeks end.

    Tomorrow is pedicure. I could have coffee with my gentleman friend but I am thinking this may not be wise, so move on.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Good morning all~~

    I'm hoping that the sun comes out at least for a little bit today.
    Also hoping for the mood to lift a bit. Maybe a walk will help.

    Waves to anyone who stops by today 🌊

    Good evening,

    Finally finding Fall/Winter here. Cold but that means more layers so that's okay.

    Job interview after work on Tuesday. Dragon asked if she wanted to help me 'prep' for the interview. I didnt answer, but I guess I will have to say "thanks, but no". Rolling eyes heavily.

    Found out Yams are superfood so long as you dont overload them with butter/marshmallows and eat them straight. Yams are such good comfort food in the winter.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Good luck at interview!

    Good evening,

    Happy end of Monday. Our database system shut down for awhile. Seems it may continue. I dont know why my coworker's are freaking out, nobody can work and it isnt held against them. oh well.

    I was debating - wash hair - yes I have an interview tomorrow. No, I am lazy. Hair got washed. Stupid reason to not look my best.

    Leaves are finally falling as the temps are dropping. Other parts of the country I know are looking at bare trees going ????? but we had some strange heat wave in October.

    Knitting larger shawls to see if I can sell them. No good soccer matches to watch so maybe you tube.

    Missy - how are you? How are your puppies.

    Lana walking is always good no matter the length of the walk.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Good evening,

    Dragon came out of her hole to ask how the interview went. I had not had it yet so I could not say.

    The interview went well enough but we shall see.

    Ordered pants online and they fit (better with a top over them but being on the point).

    Hot chocolate is my reward for not crashing and burning in the interview.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    I’m good! Busy but good. Got the bedroom rearranged finally. Was going to sell the oversized storage bed that I had but when taking mattress off found the support beam was cracked in 2 spots and warped. Thankfully it never fully broke while I was sleeping. Got lucky. And it further broke more as we tried to take it apart. It went out with the garbage this week.
    Karamel my youngest husky had a dental done. They had to pull 3 of his molars. One he must have caught on something because it was already very loose and fell out easily. Poor pup. Other doggos are doing great.
    Classes start up again for the MBA in early December. I’m going to a Bible study that was supposed to end before the MBA class starts but we found we didn’t have enough time to cover everything so that got extended into January.

    Can’t wait to hear about the interview. Glad that it went well. Don’t know what’s worse waiting for the interview or waiting for the decision. Yes it was a hot October. Leaves finally falling here but not all. I see more raking in my future.

    Hope you have a great day!

    ~ Missy

    Good morning all~~

    Missy - That's right, your classes will start up again soon! Glad the puppers are now all doing well 🩷

    Sara - So glad your interview went well. Do you know when they will decide?

    There is some blob of a storm south of us, so today is overcast and dreary. I'd better get dressed and out for a walk soon....

    Good afternoon,

    Lana -should find out in 2 weeks. Dragon is waiting for the call so she can tell them all about my "naughtiness" or so it appears. I am hoping she just is happy enough that I might leave her dept, but we shall see.

    Dental cleaning. I have a nice lady who does it and I remember how lucky I am my teeth are not worse. My bad habits didnt help any but I have stayed at the same gum level for as long as I have been with this dentist.

    Got a box of Gingerbread cake mix. Not sure if I want to make cake or cookies. Either way it is a good thing.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Good Morning 😃🌞☀️ all!

    So I tracked my food the last few days. Sheesh I should have never stopped tracking. Fell out of the habit and trying to get back into it is rough. Seems like I’m eating calorie wise double. Trying to figure out where to make cuts. Think I know where…no more ice cream at least during the week and I might stop partaking in the usual egg nog that comes about this season. I had already bought some so have to go through that. Can’t let it go to waste. And need to find a way to cut both half and half and sugar from my coffees.

    Hope all is well!

    ~Missy

    It's Thursday already √

    Sara - two weeks seems such a long time to wait to know. Naughtiness, eh? That's hilarious! 🤣

    Missy - Are you thinking of changing to drinking your coffee black? If yes, may I suggest getting really good coffee - and maybe not the flavored coffees, because the flavored coffee is often a lower quality of coffee.

    My dear sister drinks her coffee no sugar + skim milk. I swear the coffee looks a bit gray! Yick. But she's happy with it. 🫣

    Well, it's time for me to push myself out the door for a walk. Ugh.

    Waves to all who stop by later on~~

    Thinking about it but not sure if I can go without milk or 1/2 & 1/2. Maybe just need to find a lower calories 1/2 & 1/2

    It also helps if the egg nog was in the right measurements…1 cup. Not 5! Lol whoops!

    Well at long last, we have Friday and the weekend 🎉

    I'm here late - in the evening, and it's time to put on jammies and watch some Netflix etc.

    Missy, just enjoy the 1/2 + 1/2. My bestie Monica lost a ton of weight a while back, and has kept it off, and she lost it while never even counting her sweetened coffee creamer. That was her one "freebie".
    😊

    🏖️Sara - it's time for you to make yourself comfortable so that Pierre can do your massage 🌴

    Good evening,

    Long week, took a nice shower and Pierre can massage my feet for starters.

    Missy, Lana is right. So many of those flavored coffees just hide intolerable coffees. Put your money up front on your coffee then you wont have to sweeten or milk it as much. Those calories float away and land on other people (I am hoping for a good wind so it will go the other direction!!).

    Long week. Hard won. I have 4 scarves to sew the ends in for homeless bags the church people hand out. I need to go grocery shopping so it will happen somewhere in the weekend.

    Wishing all a great Friday- dance, party!! read a good book. Just enjoy your week being over.

    Stay safe and sane out there.

    Happy Saturday everybody!

    Sara - I laughed out loud when I read your "calories float away and land on other people" + "hoping for a good wind". I love this!! 🩷 I'm still laughing.

    Well I need to get more coffee and pull myself together and get out there ➡️ ➡️ ➡️
