That 4 day weekend?

I said: "I actually plan on sleeping and reading and watching sappy holiday flicks we've dvr-ed off the Hallmark Channel."

And I actually accomplished all three AND made Christmas cookies (which have pretty much all been eaten at this point)!!!

No exercise. Ate whatever without caring.

And I'm absolutely okay with all of it.

Stick a fork in me ...

because I am SO DONE with this week!!! Pretty ridiculous since I've only worked 3 nights this week, but oh so very true. It's been exhausting (and only one of those nights -- being tonight -- was a longer-than-usual shift). At least I have the next 4 nights off. I asked for Thursday night because John has a half-day of school Friday and half-days are really super freaking hard to deal with after working an overnight. I also requested Sunday (and, actually, every Sunday in December) because I have so much "use-it-or-lose-it" paid time off available ... and the use-or-lose deadline is December 31st. Who knows, I may actually bother exercising at some point over the 4 days. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. I actually plan on sleeping and reading and watching sappy holiday flicks we've dvr-ed off the Hallmark Channel.

This IS supposed to be a "diet" blog, right?

I mean, that's why this really came into existence, isn't it? To chronicle (aka bitch and moan) my whole "healthy journey" hoopla? I only ask because I actually came here tonight to talk about books.


I would just go ahead and start a new blog about such things but then I would probably NEVER come here.

Of course, I'm assuming the few who actually pay attention would probably follow me wherever anyway because you love me .... right?



So, I did it. Started a new blog.

Hopefully I'll be able to keep all my balls in the air and still actually keep updating this with something other than book stuff.

If you want to check the other out, it's The Well-Read Pirate Queen.

Did you know ....

It's almost impossible to follow any sort of eating plan that isn't just "eat" when there's very little food in the house??? I did the best I could but it was SO not easy.

Going grocery shopping this morning after John heads to school to remedy that.

Also hitting the bike today and maybe the Wii since so far I've hit the Wii Fit none at all and only have 11 miles in on the bike.

I've been reading, though. That's one goal I will NEVER slack off on.

Exhausted but still pretty happy

It's another 12 hour shift tonight. I haven't had to do one in a bit and I had almost forgotten how hellish they can be. BUT last night I filled out a bunch of Paid Time Off request forms and it's looking like they've been approved because after I get done with this 12 hours I have three nights off ... then work for three nights ... then I should have FOUR nights off! I'm a bit giddy just thinking about it!

Last night at work I started working on figuring out my books for that A to Z Author Challenge I mentioned
and not only did I figure out what I want to read ... I even loaded them all up onto their own page in my aStore in case anyone else wants to play along! (and this is where I point out the disclaimer over to the right about me making a small percentage of $ whenever you shop from one of my links .... blah blah blah ....)

I'm hoping that tonight I'll get The Reading Thing - 2015 started for here. The more places I declare it to be so the more likely it is to be, ya know? I just need to decide if I'm going in order from A to Z ... backwards from Z to A ... for pulling them out of a hat coffee cup and randomly going at it.
