Checking In

I just wanted to check in and say hi. I haven't done an entry since the 15th.

Everything is going great here. I lost another 2 lbs which brings my total to 23 lbs lost so far. I just started reading The Best Life Diet book by Bob Greene. I just read a few pages and it seems to make a lot of sense to me. I am going to try and follow it.

My birthday was Saturday and we had a nice time. I opened my presents and then we went out to dinner. When we left the restaurant our car was covered in ice. We had a ice/snow/rain and everything in between storm. It was crazy.

I have a pretty short week on the work front. I only worked 11:30 to 3 today and yesterday. Tomorrow it is from 10:30 to 4. I have off on Friday and Monday which is good because my daughter is off of school and we want to spend some time together at the mall and maybe go to the show.

Well, I am off. Sorry no graphics and I have catching up to do with journals and some housework. Take Care Everyone.

Hugs, Detje Bea

Quick Entry

Just a quick entry to say that I am doing great. I have lost 20 lbs. so far this year. I am feeling good but very sore from standing on my feet at the new job. Today I am working at both stores. The first store from 11:30 to 3:00 and then I get to drive home to pack up my dinner and start at the other store at 4:00 and get off at about 8:30. He fired one girl and another girl quit to go back to school, so he has been keeping me very busy. I don't mind though.

I maybe shutting off my alerts for awhile. I have been having a hard time trying to find time to read them and to comment. The only time I can get on is in the morning and when I get home from work but I have been letting some of the household duties suffer. My daughter has been really good at washing the bedrooms and doing the floors on her hands and knees. 

Yesterday for Valentine's Day my daughter wrote me a beautiful letter and made a pillow shaped like a heart with a little pillow shaped like a heart on top of it. She used her girlfriend's sewing machine. She also wrote her dad a beautiful letter and made him a small scrapbook. She is the cutiest little thing. We love her so much.


I hope everyone has a great day. See you soon. I hope. LOL

Working Girl


I just wanted to come in and make a quick entry. I was interviewed for a job on Wednesday and they called me yesterday at about 4:30 and asked if I could come in now. I hopped in my car and started working at 5. I got home at about 8:45. I was on my feet for about 3 1/2 hours. I am not used to that and my feet were killing me. Oh before I forget I am working at a video store. It is only about 10 minutes away and they have 2 stores. I thought I was going to be working at the store they interviewed me in but they decided to have me work at their other store. I don't mind because they are both the same amount of distance. 


 When I was driving home from my interview and heading into town I noticed a sign that said Bank of Elwood, call so and so if you are interested. I figured if I didn't get the job I was going to call. I still might call because that is the field I have worked for most of my life. I worked at Harris Bank for almost 10 years and a few other banks in between. They haven't built the Bank of Elwood yet. Our small town is really building up. Our town consists of 2 bars, a small grocery store, laundry mat and that is about it. It is like Mayberry town. LOL We just love it.

Well, I am off to doing things around the house.cid_22B058E8-234F-4942-8AF2-BA0E-1.gif I don't start working until 4 and get off at about 9:30. I haven't worked in 10 years so I know it is going to take time for me to adjust. 1212121.gif

Wish me luck.
