Because I am not doing enough

Like I am not doing enough but I have now joined a gym.  I figured I deal with stupid people daily I might as well go let off some steam and work out.  While I am there I'm sure I'll see more stupid shit. Why?  Because it's me and people like to show me their stupid shit.  Trading Spaces is back on TLC. What that was my squirrel moment?  Loved that show when it was on.

Now I have another thing to record the joys of DVR.  At least I don't have a ton of VHS tapes anymore.  Oh, wait those are under the bed.

So I am adding more to my every busy day.  But hey who needs sleep.

Why yes delivery companies play ding dong ditch

Really people you’re going to return your order because UPS just left it on your door step.  How long have you been ordering things?  Do you not realize that UPS and FedEx like to play ding dong ditch?  They ring your doorbell and ditch the package.  It’s common knowledge they do this with residential deliveries.  My advice is to call them and complain to them because it is out of our control here at the store.  Oh, you do not have time to call them but you can drive all the way to the store return your item.  Makes total sense to return it and have to go searching again for the item.    If you don’t want them to play ding dong ditch have your packages delivered to your place of work or put a note that they need a signature.  Better yet suck it up and deal with it.  Because you are creating way too much work for yourself.

The extent of my creativeness

If monkeys were flying out of your nose you’d think I was weird.  But out of my butt you’d say I was hiding them from their elephant family.

That has been the extent of my creativeness over the past few weeks.  Why do you ask?  Well it’s not because I have been living the high life on some tropical beach in the Caribbean.  I have been working 56 hours a week, reading, binge watching The L Word on Netflix, and playing games on  So I have been pretty mindless lately.  After the Olympics and the awful school shootings I have needed some mindless stuff to do.

Just when you think the stupid people have all but gone away

All the stupid people have been in hibernating, Why, do you ask?  Because I have not encountered as many in my retail job.  Don’t get me wrong there are the ones who still try to return a used toilet that is the avocado green color that was popular in the 1970’s.  Umm yea no that one you cannot return.  What is it you say?  You just bought it.  Umm maybe back in 1972 via time travel.

Oh and I’m not a mind reader when you call to say you placed an order on the 12 and didn’t receive it how am I supposed to know that you received an order that was placed on the 14 when I start looking into orders placed on the 12.  Might help if you said I am trying to track an order I placed on the 12 that I haven’t received but did receive one that I placed on the 14.  Would have same you some aggravation.  Just saying.

The weight loss journey

Change is never easy.  I have started tracking food and exercise again.  While I have been over a lot of days on food or didn’t finish tracking, the key is that I am doing something.  Now over the past few weeks I have given up Pepsi and pop tarts.  Part of me misses it and other part no.  The pop was giving me stomach issues so now that I don’t drink it I feel so much better.  The walking after my lunch has been helpful.  It’s 10 minutes that I wasn’t doing while I was at work.  I have also started doing the Leslie Sansone videos on days I am not working both my jobs.  Yes, it can be hard but it’s worth it. 

I am feeling better as each days goes by.  For me it makes me realize what I am eating and makes it easier to makes the changes little by little.  Whether you start big or little it doesn’t matter, it’s your journey.  Just know others are trying to loose weight too and may have similar experiences as you.  You are not in a competition with anyone else on this.  Take one big leap or baby steps we all are on our journeys and are willing to share our experiences.

A walk on the Fox River

When my parents come to town they rent a house because my brother and I do not have room in our places for them.  So they rent a house on the Fox River in St. Charles, Illinois for a few weeks.  Since it was so cold over the holidays the river froze so we took a walk.
