Goooooood Morning! It's another snowy morning here. I am so over this winter already... it's been grey and snowy and freezing every day for months but just enough to be annoying and not enough to get a snow day :(

QOTD: Do you take your car in for regular maintenance? I used to be so great about making sure I hit every one of the diagnostic check-ups at the recommended mileage but I have been awful about doing it for this car. I haven't found a dealer that I like nearby and its a PITA to take it to my old one. I know I need to get it in!

Uh-oh...I haven't been able to find any time to eat at all at work on Wednesdays, for three weeks in a row. I hope I will be able to plan ahead a little better going forward since I now I know what to expect. I was under calories yesterday because I didn't eat all day, but it was not a healthy way to do it. Today should be pretty quiet :)

well it's almost 4:30 am CST. I couldn't sleep for the life of me, so I just gave up and got up. Happens a handful of times a year. Sigh.

I found out several hours ago that got into my second class - US Urban History. I am SO excited to take it!! So it's that and the aforementioned geography class this semester (both audits - no way I want to write papers and take tests at this point in my life). Classes start next Tuesday. Looking forward to it!

so who all is planning to go to the OH conference? I know Chrissy for sure - and Jim is thinking about it. I've always wanted to go - so if a handful of RNY menu'ers are going, this may be the year to do it...

QOTD: yes. In fact, I just had a tune-up yesterday.

B: cheesecake-flavored yogurt pie with blueberry/blackberry compote. Coffee with half & half.

MS: light vanilla Greek yogurt with 2 t unsweetened cocoa mixed in, topped with light Cool Whip and a few raspberries

L: meeting a friend at a Mexican place (that is, if I can stay awake long enough...). Either two street tacos or one street taco + refried beans

AS: protein muffin, orange

D: matzo soup

ex: Zumba (again, if I can stay awake long enough!!)

have a great day, everyone!

I might go to the conference, it's close enough for me but I haven't thought about it yet.

Good mornin JB and everyone!

It's a cold one here. It's 14° with a windchill on -2°. Oh joy. Of course I have an appointment today for testing on my eyes which I never look forward to anyway. Other than that there isn't a whole lot planned for the day.

We ordered another outdoor security camera that should be here today. Some things are going on with the **** neighbor that resulted in us having to call CPS. I'm very concerned for our safety but we have a moral obligation to do the right thing by his kids.

QOTD: my mom was good with it before the pandemic but it's been harder since the whole mess started.

B: JUST egg cup...coffee...lots and lots of coffee

L: most likely a PP shake with strawberries

D: not really a clue yet

S: veggie puff, broccoli, rice crispy thing

yum, cheesecake! and yay for Jr. Friday!

Busy day today and after work I have to run out and pick up a few "ship to store" things plus I have pilates this morning and want to do one of the rowing series; I'm ready to be done with this series of 12 and more on to the next thing. I laugh because this is exactly how my few tropical vacations have been too -- great at first because it's so beautiful but after a bit I'm ready to move on.

I'm going to have to be very careful when I head out this morning, the whole state seems to be an ice skating rink; we had drizzle/mist most of yesterday and then temps dropped into the teens.

QOTD - yes, I'm very diligent about it. I hate dealing with car stuff so this is a good way to put off issues.

menu today is

coffee plus half and half x 3

gf pb toast

chicken meatballs in red sauce

half of chicken Chile rellano, maybe some sweet potatoes too.

Have a great day!
