You kids get off my lawn!

Standard

Hello kids!  How’s it going?

First of all let me get my curmudgeonly self out of the way:  I hate DST. It screws up my rhythm and it takes me weeks to adjust. All because of one little measly hour.  Patooie! I spit on you, DST!! 

Oh, I’m not done.  Next up on “why Jill is turning into a cranky old lady”, I don’t feel well today. Sarah (my 9yo) had a stomach virus Saturday night and most of the day Sunday, which meant very little sleep for me. She is feeling better today, but I’m feeling a wee bit nauseated. Yuck. I hate this feeling.  😦 

And also, I still am not fond of my job. The End.

Okay now that we got that out of the way, let’s talk about the good things about today:

*crickets chirping*

Okay, so let’s recap:  I’m an old woman who is tired, ill, and cranky…yep, that about sums it up!

Oh, before I forget…  The Exercise for 10 Days Challenge is going well. I have worked out for 5 out of the last 6 days. The challenge ends on Thursday and I don’t see why I can’t work out for the next 4 days.  It’s do-able.  The No Sweets Challenge, well that’s another story. Saturday I had cake with the family, and then I had more cake yesterday afternoon. I had asked my mom  to make me an angel food cake because I thought that would be less horrific than a bakery birthday cake. Well, I underestimated my mom. She’s an old-fashioned southern cook, so to dress up that drab Angel Food Cake she made frosting. The most delicious, sweet, heart-attack-on-a-plate frosting. She used powdered sugar, half and half creamer, and…are you ready for this?…I can’t even believe it myself…SHORTENING. Yes, lots of shortening. Like I said, it was some good tasty stuff, but not so much the healthier birthday cake I was hoping for!  It all worked out okay, though. The cake was on the smallish side so the pieces weren’t very big and there was only enough for one left over piece which I devoured yesterday afternoon in a fit of “I”m tired, therefore I need sugar” (and yeah, we all know how well that works!).  Other than that, I’ve been pretty good about staying away from the sweet stuff.

Okay, well back to work for me.  Sorry this is the most boring blog post ever. I’ll try to channel my inner ray of sunshine and have a better post later. Although I can’t promise anything, cause I’m curmudgeonly that way.

    Oh I am so glad to hear from my young friend that she has days where she feels tired and cranky. I have felt like that for 2 days now–and that is after the two days of work where I wasn’t all sweetness and light either…

    That cake from your mother is the funniest! And yes, ‘lard frosting’ is the very best ever!

    Good for you on the exercise.

    Hi,
    Do you feel better now? Work is done for today, the weekend is past, and it’s time to start a new week on your program. You are making great progress and everyone needs to ketch a bit on certain days. Today was your day. I say “was” because now it’s over and it’s time to move on.

    Hope you had a Happy Birthday and many more! See ya on ichange.

    Hah! I see your curmudgeon and raise you a mean spinster.

    Hope you are feeling sunshiney again tomorrow. It’s a new day!

  4. Some days are not filled with sunshine.

    Shortcake with frosting – yum! I am sure anytime I can do a 10 day challenge, but a No Sweets challenge, that sounds like torture in the making, lol!

    By the way, I work as a virtual assistant of The Healthy Moms ( http://www.thehealthymoms.net ), the site is fairly new and I thought I would drop by some mom and health related sites to spread the word.
