Losing Weight; Finding Men

"Never make someone a priority in your life when you are just their option."

I don't have any more news about Mom. She's resting. She may be moved tomorrow, which squashes my idea of driving up there and visiting. Maybe Sunday.

No word from Casino Man, no invite to get together this weekend. No email since Tuesday when I expressed my stress about my Mom's health. Hmm, maybe he can't handle the emotions? Better I know that now, because being one hell of an emotional chick isn't going to change. Maybe he doesn't care that my mom is in the hospital? In which case, don't even bother, right?

I am struggling today.

A co-worker made my team a homemade icebox chocolate wafer cake to thank us for a particularly lousy bit of work we have to do for him.

My piece tasted like heaven. I didn't even hesitate to slice it and eat it. So I'm not going to dwell on regretting it either.

And now that I've avoided all the trick or treaters (there is no candy in this house!), I am going to the gym to watch Lipstick Jungle.

And if I see one more KFC TV commercial, I will scream.

I took a photo of my reward jar, I am hoping it will inspire me, remind me, and keep me honest.

$1 for every trip to the gym.
$1 for every pound lost.

So far, there is $5.00 toward my fabulous February 15, 2009 flowers.

It is all about the Washingtons!

Men do have a freakin' strange way of dealing with things. If he calls, he calls. The ball is in his court now. Don't do the I wonders & what if's.

You did the right thing. You indulged, you loved it, and you moved on. 1 piece of cake isn't going to ruin a great week.

I love your reward jar. It's perfect. Now if only I could do the same and keep my little fingers out of it!

My freaking hubby bought Taco flavored Doritos. Only my favorite ones. It is killing me not to open that bag. Nothing else has really bothered me, until now. I think I hate him.

Hope you had a good workout and screw Casino Man. His loss you frikkin hottie.

I need a jar. I keep forgetting to make one.

you're like butter to me

Just a Lovable Party Girl
Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
