In answer to a couple of questions..
Yes, it was.
So, once or twice a month I really don't worry about it. If I want it bad enough, and I pace myself, I have it.
Can you figure out the questions?
"Was Julie & Julia worth seeing?"
Loved it........it was not "oh that's the best movie ever" but it made me happy and I left the theater smiling and appreciating Meryl Streep even more.
"Mexican food on Weight Watchers?"
I don't watch my Weight Watchers every minute. I figure this was it has allowed me to loose the weight that I have and still look forward to eating with delight and abandon - just not every day.
I had been planning this meal for 2 weeks. It's what makes it do-able for me. (results are not typical..just a wee disclaimer) Like I said, it has worked for me and this way I know I can have ANYTHING I want, just not all the time..like before. :-)
OK, so this "work from home" thingy. Not what I had expected. Not certain I liked it all that much.
I mean, I was in my jammies ( and felt kind of sloppy) but I was tied to the computer screen (we do "live" chats) .
Couldn't cuddle back in bed..although it didn't stop Lulu..
At work, it doesn't seem like such a chore, but at home, I kept seeing things I'd like to be doing but couldn't.
My art room kept calling..."Colllllleen, come and play..you know you wanna.."
"No, I have to work.."
"ah, come on..no one will see you"
"Yeah, but if someone wants a chat session, I might not be here and that's what I am getting paid for. So be quiet."
"party pooper. Fine. Just go to work tomorrow. But plan on being happy to come home, OK?"
"OK. I think I'll do work at work and be off at home. Kinda like the separation, you know?"
"Yeah, I think I do."
Hey, wanna see what cute things I got at an estate sale this week-end?
WooHoo! Lookie that! Probably the world's oldest Best Foods jar..
Not one but TWO old lunch boxes..
Some great old lace thingys..
Two great small cases - one with a mirror and one that looks like it might have belonged to a Doctor - it had rolls and rolls of bandages inside..
A few just-things that I like: locks with the keys hanging from twine, old measuring spoons, a bar of old soap, house numbers, a roll of bias tape (yellow) , some really old-looking Jello molds, a thing of waxed twine and a red-handled thingy that I don't know what it's for..
I'm gunna have some fun now, huh? Or at least when I can answer the craft-room's call :-)
Did you find any great thingys?
