So we still have our old car for right now. First shot with a buyer didn't work out but that's alright. We're still deciding what we're going to do with this heap and we still have a few options to work through. We did, however, purchase a new computer. Our laptop has been on its last legs for awhile and is about 6 years old so we were due. We decided to get a iMac. I'm not sure if this is a good idea or bad idea but after Vista, we were fed up. One of the reasons we needed a new computer was so I could work from home. Alas, for some reason I can't seem to connect to the remote desktop from my mac. I called our company help desk and they were, as always, helpLESS. So if any of you are Mac wizards or tech people, I'd love to hear from you if you think you could help me out.
My cold is getting worse. I woke up this morning all stuffed up with a headache and sore throat. Gee...working from home sure sounds good right now. But alas, I'm here at my desk going to try to get through the day without infecting everyone around me.
I've determined that my work is trying to keep me fat. OK...maybe not my work but definitely people AT my work. They discovered a new ice cream shop over here that sells ice cream sandwiches for $2. The cookies are made on site fresh each day and the ice cream is Dreyers. Yep...so one double chocolate chip cookie with mint chocolate chip ice cream sandwich later, I'm sure I had about 1,000 extra calories I didn't need yesterday. Oh well...it was really good. But I need to remember that things like that really aren't worth it to have often. I want to get to goal and I've just got to knuckle down and do what I need to do it.
So last night, I had a hankerin' for ribs so off to Outback we went. Incidentally I ate 2 pieces of the chicken flatbread, 2 ribs and 2 fries and was done but what was very exciting was just before the food came out, my oldest says "Ooooohhhhh..my tooth hurts" while it's bleeding all over the place. This tooth was knocked loose on 2 separate occasions by my youngest daughter's head so we've been waiting for it to get naturally loose and fall out for about 8 months now. At her last dentist appointment, he said nature would probably take care of it for us. So off to the bathroom she and Hubby went (with little sister close behind as not to miss the action) to pull out this tooth. Understand they were about to do this sitting at the table using one of those cloth Outback napkins. Ummm...gross? Well, it "hurt too bad" to pull out, so they all shuffled back. We ate with this thing bleeding off and on. Well, before the night was done, the tooth was out and Tooth Fairy paid a visit...but seriously??? We're pulling teeth at Outback? Ick.
So that was the excitement that was Tuesday. I can't wait for today to be over and to crawl back into bed. Happy Hump Day everybody! And this just made me giggle...
