Poor abandoned blog
I keep promising that I'll get back to regular posting, but I just haven't made the time for it. You could look at my wall on Facebook and think that was where I was spending all my time, but truth is that I don't spend near as much time there as it looks from all my game postings. Unless I'm rearranging my farm in Farmville (which can burn up a couple of hours if you let it), most games take just a few minutes to use up all the energy, money or what-have you and there's nothing left to do until it recharges or the crops grow or the fish mature or the meals cook or whatever. Instead, I tend to spend a lot of time just resting. The physical demands of the job are getting easier, but I'm still exhausted at the end of the day. It's all good though and I expect there will come a time when I'm in enough shape that I will still have energy at end of the day and it won't take all weekend to recover from the week. Plus, it certainly beats the daily mental exhaustion I used to feel from working for the call center.
Let's see, what has happened since October? My best friend's mom died a few weeks ago which was very sad and unexpected. My own dad ended up in the hospital last week with pneumonia and he is now home recovering well, but it has delayed the emergency surgery that might save his eyesight. Not sure what is going to happen now, but the thought that my dad may go completely blind has been weighing heavily on my mind. And also, one of my favorite Aunts died last week. That's the third aunt to die in less than six months. I guess that's to be expected now that everyone is in their 80's.
My paychecks from this new job are teeny-tiny and every time I open one, I try to think of it as getting paid to lose weight and get in shape rather than as a viable means of financial support. I have managed to slow the rapid weight loss by eating more sugar in one weekend than I usually do in three months. Yes, I ate an entire cake last weekend so I only dropped a couple of pounds this week. I did buy another cake for this weekend, but I've only had one piece with ice cream - it just doesn't appeal to me enough to eat an entire cake again. I think that Rob is going to end up eating most of the Hershey's kisses that I put in the freezer and apparently the dogs are going to eat the donuts I bought for weekend breakfast. Gonna have to come up with something that is high in calories, but isn't sweet and doesn't cost much. Cost has pretty much killed the beer drinking idea. Any suggestions?
