Daylight Savings

I really owe the blog a post. Work hads been crazy busy the last 2 weeks and I have been letting it get to me.

I started WW (weight Watchers) 2 weeks ago. And so far I have been doing ok. Lost a total of 5 pounds. So only 15 more to go. I really should be shooting for a total of 30 pounds instead of 20, but I have come to the decision that It is too much work to be and stay that thin. If I can get down 20 pounds I will be quite content.

Roscoe started acting very weird last night. I am not quite sure what it is, he is still in the same place this morning. Ate his meals but is refusing to take treats. Which it really odd since he loves his treats.

I really hate daylight savings time. I don’t like it to be light until 8 or 9 in the evening. I like winter time and all the things that go along with it, rain, cold, blustery days and early evenings. Daisy will be happy since now it will be light enough to walk her in the evening after work. She is the only one happy about the upcoming summer.

So I have realized after living here one year today. That I need to watch my budget much closer. I have had to dip into my meager savings two times this year to make ends meet. On was at Christmas, which was my own fault and now this next time is this time of year with taxes, house insurance and other various once a year bills come due. I need to make a budget and stick to it.

Almost a Year

I realized I hadn’t posted in a month. I think I let the “stuff” get to me more than I should have, and just kind of shut down. I didn’t want to whine here about it, but I had nothing else to really say.

So ok now its over. I think I am back on track. It’s a cloudy and drizzly Saturday morning; I am sitting here waiting for a plumber, low water pressure in the kitchen and a leaky shower. Wanted to take care of it on my home warranty before it expires in 10 days,.

Yes, I will be here in my home for a year very soon. It doesn’t seem like it has been a year, but I suppose time flies faster as you get older.

Last night I went to D’s son’s 16th birthday party. It was in the dugout club behind home plate of our local LA baseball team. Yes a bit excessive, very excessive, but I being the good girlfriend just nodded and came along, to help chaperone 40 teenagers and listen to rap and hip hop for 4 hours. The other 4 adults that were going to assist in the chaperoning were no shows, must of heard about the music choice, but fortunately there was also security guards,, so when some of the girls thought it would be fun to run around the field, all the kids outside were ushered back inside and banned from going out. I just sat and smiled, sipped my wine and ate my peanuts.

I got home after midnight and was pooped! The old lady that I am is not used to staying up that late, unless it is watching old movies in bed. I had to get up early for a Saturday since the plumber indicated he would be here between 8 and 12. It is now 11:35 and no sign of him. I am a little miffed since I would have loved to stay in bed a while, but oh well perhaps a nap is in my future.
