Hi Gang, I miss you all! I haven't even had time to read this week... I will catch up this weekend!

In non-work related news, a really strange thing happened with our cats. They are brothers from the same litter and best friends. Anyway, a week or so ago, they had a big blow out fight for a few hours that really took us by surprise. It happened again last night but it was way worse, to the point that we had to separate them all night, and when we opened the bedroom door this morning, they started swearing at each other and started attacking immediately. They wouldn't even eat this morning! 47 years of cat ownership and I have never seen anything like this! I wish they would tell me what the beef is! This is one of my favorite pics of them in happier times:

QOTD: Would you rather ride a bike, a horse or a motorcycle? I never really liked riding horses, and I have only been on a motorcycle a few times, and didn't like that either! I haven't ridden a bike in a long time, but I used to love it. I would like to get a bike, but it wouldn't be safe to ride around our house so I would have to put it in the car to bring it somewhere which seems annoying. Maybe someday?!

Yesterday was a blur. I have no idea if I ate or not and never even logged my actual food in MFP. Whatever.

Good Morning!

todays beef: why are shirts either cropped or oversized? Is it too much to ask that my pants and shirt overlap BUT that my shirt doesn't go to my mid thigh? I can FINALLY shop pretty much wherever I want now, but it's all flippin trash! If I wanted oversized clothing I'd stop shopping as my closet is filled with 'oversize' clothes..

QOTD: bike. Horses scare me and I see the horrible accidents motorcyclists are involved in way too frequently. No thanks.

I need nicely tailored shirts for work. I order them from Land's End. I get the ones that are no-iron. They run a lot of sales and I order when there is a good price on them.

For casual shirts, I have a lot of luck in the juniors section of clothes -- you have to dig a bit because they do love the crops but their SO Line has a lot of nice, soft, but "female cut" tshirts.

You sound like my 15 year old daughter when we were clothes shopping for school. She finally found a few items at Cabellas that weren't oversized or cropped.

Well I am a teeny tiny bit more awake now.

my day will be a busy one. The kids are coming over tonight to stay the night and they'll be here ALL DAY tomorrow. Oh and a birthday party here Sunday for my nephew. I am going to make a Mario cart inspired cake and I'm just hoping it looks presentable. Boys are so much different than girls. All we need to get is some fondant for trees and pretzel sticks. I'm not very confident about this one.

We have to run to Walmart and Sam's. I want to run to another grocery store as they have fall squash varieties that no one else has. I want to make a curried coconut soup with one.

I found out yesterday my A1c was 6.7. I felt sorry for myself yesterday but I'm angry today. I've got to get it under control again. Time to buckle down. I'm having a hard time with breakfast options so I'm going to do PP shakes for a while. My mom wants me to walk with her a little bit but we'll see how I feel after today to determine if that's doable.
