>New York NY

>Yes, Em and I went to the city again. Daryl came through for me and recommended a place to get a manicure and pedicure and it was fabulous! One problem, I got a leg massage and now my calves feel like someone was kicking me.

So my nails are blue, they match the sweater I was wearing. I got earrings to replace the earrings I lost. I will probably find them now. And Em found the perfect red sandals. I wanted to get another pair of shoes that I saw there, but Em said I wasn’t allowed to get the same red as she had. Piffle! Didn’t need shoes anyway. I was going to tell you more but I am too tired.

>Just a quick HI! before I head off to bed. I got offered a book for review today and I accepted it. Told the person, I can’t promise I will like it, I will only promise to be nice if I don’t like it. He accepted that. So now I have two books to read for review. And four library books to finish. Then after that I have to get back to my challenge books.

In the month of February I only read two books. Mainly cause one was dud. The other one wasn’t as bad as the first, but it also didn’t grab me.

Tomorrow Em and I are going to Manhattan, this time I am taking a book. I think it will be ‘Love in the Time of Cholera’. It is one of my challenge books and I have the train ride to read, maybe while we are getting our nails done too. I will stick it in the pink crocheted bag I have. Em is taking her new camera and so I don’t have to take mine.

>Back to the gym

>I really wish I had my car in the evenings. Then Em wouldn’t have to take me to the gym. She really prefers exercising earlier, I do to but I don’t have a choice. If I get approved for this 9/10 work schedule I really won’t have time earlier, since I’ll be getting home later, well except for every other Wednesday, then I’ll be able to earlier but just those Wednesday.

D is leaving for Toronto Sunday. Em told me that Tigger said he doesn’t think her i-pod will hook up to her TV, so that means we either have to banish the children from the living room (HA!) or watch it on my laptop. I don’t have a problem watching it on my laptop. So its up to her.

Phantom of the Opera is on my I-pod now. I also got a Phantom ringtone. I am so excited.

>So so

>That is how my internet connection is, so I am typing this in a hurry to get it in here.

The tickets for Phantom came, they are safe and sound in my underwear drawer. Well at $XXX each I wasn’t about to risk putting them someplace where I would forget them!

Em has a list of movies for us to watch when D is in Toronto. Full Metal Jacket, Signs of Live (One for Sorrow, Two for Joy), Mystic Pizza and/Or Thumbsucker. This is what I was doing today when I should have been working. Besides plotting ways to kill my very annoying co-worker, who almost got flattened when he raised his fist to me.

>Once again


Once again, I promised myself I would get up when my alarm went off.
Once again, I stayed up too late (this time I was reading The Devil's Feathers)
Once again, I was rushing around throwing on clothes and slapping on foundation and blush (this cold has drained all color from my face. With the exception of my nasal mucus, it is now a icky green)

>Pretty blue phone.

>Stitch got a Blitz. Small and blue, like Stitch. He is at class right now so I am waiting for him to get home before I activate it, since he won’t be able to use his phone once I activate the new phone. He is really excited to get it. So is Tigger. I broke my rule and let Tigger play with it a little, now it is sitting in its box and I am sitting on my bed waiting for Stitch to get home.

Not much else to say, except I wish I had stayed home to nurse this cold a little longer. And that is a pain dealing with some of my co-workers when I am well, so dealing with them when I don’t feel well is . . .

I made Em and my appointment for a massage today, no the appointment is not today, I called today. Still haven’t got the tickets for Phantom, but the charge went through.

Right now I am going upstairs for a cuppa. I will be back tomorrow.


Washed my sheets and blankets yesterday when I was home. Last night it was so nice to snuggle under blankies smelling like detergent and fabric softener, except, Em buys the Free and Clear so they only smelled like dryer sheets. Still, they were soft and clean, that is really all I wanted.
Today I headed back to work wearing my new NYC hat. Yes it is still February in New York so it is still cold and hats are needed, I even had to put my hood up while walking to my office from the subway. I also wrapped my scarf around my hands 'cause my gloves were in my bag. I made a stop at RiteAid on the way in. So here I am at my desk with my anti-viral Kleenex®, Imodium A-D®, and Halls®, I should have no problem making it to 4:30 p.m. 

>*Cough* *Hack* *Blow*

>Yes I still have a cold. Still coughing and congested. I stayed home from work and now am watching the boys play with the Wii (see below post). They stopped boxing, mainly because Tigger’s arm was so sore it was about to fall off. So now they are playing with polar bears and arctic foxes.

All I did today was two loads of laundry, easy loads, sheets and whites. I should go finish them now.

Today was weigh in and I lost 1.2 pounds. Yay! Maybe cause I was sick and not eating all weekend, but I will take it. And hope for a maintain or loss however small this week.
