The next day I went out and took some pictures and video. The pictures are on Flickr and the videos are on my YouTube Channel.

Then the Wednesday after the storm a noreaster blew through with nasty biting wind and snow. I know because I was out in it shopping. I am a tough New Yorker (Translation: Stupid). First I went to the yarn store to get yarn for the shawl I’m making for one of the bridesmaids in my best friend’s daughter’s wedding. I was wearing my gray down coat and it got soaked, it is not exactly waterproof. Besides the coat getting soaked, my jeans and every other part that was exposed got soaked too. I came home to change, but I didn’t want to put on my other winter coat, since I would need a coat the next day. The e-mail we got about cold stress, which I at first by cold they meant virus but they were talking working outside in cold temperatures, said dress in layers. I put on my long underwear, a sweatshirt and over that my coaches jacket, which has a fleece lining and is waterproof. It’s not designed for really cold weather, but with the layers it worked out fine. So I then ventured out again, this time for ….. a new coat to replace my gray coat.

The next Sunday (4 days later) when I went to church I wore a summer dress with a cotton sweater, tights and dress shoes. Last night I was back to wearing a coat. Winter in New York. No wonder I now have sniffles and a sore throat.


A shirt with a face on it

Our Regional Director is leaving, not by her choice. The Regional Director is the person in charge of the whole office. Everybody’s boss. So they took up a collection and bought some gifts. With the money left over the person buying the gifts decided to get t-shirts. Nice white t-shirts with a drawing of her and her name etc.

Here is the problem. She and I have the same name. I am not wearing a shirt with my name on it and someone else’s face! Nobody else sees a problem with it, but to me it is just creepy.

That is all, says she.


Yesterday, Saturday, M., Gwen and I went to Woodbury Commons. We got there a little before 10 and got a good parking space. When we left, there was not a space to be found, getting in the car I felt like a prospector in the desert with the buzzards circling. I got a watch, a nightgown, two sports bras, a small white pocketbook and a purple dress. I had to get the dress in an 8. Designer clothes are usually cut small though and this one is extremely fitted through the waist. It is very bright purple. I can’t wait to wear it, but I might need to get a new bra.

Today Gwen needed more pictures for her photography class, she wanted to walk and get them though, so we walked to Asian Ginger so I could eat, then to Memorial Park, then to Ron’s for ice cream, then home.

Then I went to the gym, I really didn’t want to, so I had to force myself. I don’t feel any different now. I went to Target after to get hand soap, a new case for my contacts and chocolate. I forgot I also wanted to get ant traps. The ants are getting into Butterscotches food. I had to throw out the food in his bowl and clean the area with Lysol with bleach and now my hands smell even though I was wearing Nitrile gloves. I think that is how it is spelled. I think I better check. Well I didn’t check I switched loads and fed Butterscotch. I am not checking now, I am going to bed. I checked and corrected it.

Hey there girlfriend.

Well, I did it. I got back to the gym and the nautilus machines. I kept the weights the same and I am sore today. But it is a good sore. Besides, that’s what they make Aleve for. Not much else of note for the weekend. M.L.’s husband is still in the hospital, I am guessing since she has not been in contact with anyone all weekend.

I went to Target and got a pair of casual pants for kicking around, lightweight for summer. Have plenty of sweat pants, but I don’t want to wear them in July! I also got a French Terry Skirt, should be down to my knees. I got the pants in Medium and the skirt in small. I didn’t get any more work out clothes, there was nothing I liked on the clearance rack.

This morning I mailed my state taxes. I have no idea why I waited this long to do so, I don’t think I have ever waited this long to mail them. Well, there was the one year I didn’t mail them at all. That was the year I was only getting a dollar back and they won’t send it to you unless you ask for it. So I just blew it off. This year I am getting $13 back.

This morning I weighed 139.6 pounds. I am not posting that on WW. I have decided I have to lose 10 pounds before I go to Washington. Two months, its doable, I just have to DO IT.

Staying Alive

Yesterday and today, I have been having a devil of a time staying awake. I wonder if I can blame it on having a bagel for breakfast instead of oatmeal. You know, the wheat allergy problem? Anyway, I was sitting here and nodding off and I heard a voice calling my name, it was Prestina and she was asking, “Is that you?” I was looking at my blog, which has my picture on it and that was what she was asking about.

Speaking of my blog, I forgot to mention what happened at Allsport last night, after I was done with my workout, I suddenly ran out of Women’s Fitness, I thought I had wet my pants, turned out, the wetness I felt was not urine, it was sweat! Time to switch from workout pants to workout shorts, or maybe I’ll pick up a pair of those workout skirts at Target.

I went to Target and got a workout skort, it wasn’t on the clearance rack yet, but I was tired of waiting. I got a pair of shorts that were on the clearance rack for $5. I also got a new sports bra, I have 4 or 5, but they are old and some of then the elastic is coming out. Then I went to the boys department to get a boys extra-large tank top to wear over my sports bras. It is longer than the shorts. I am wearing the skort and it is very comfortable.

Quick post

I am very tired and should get to bed. I got about 3 hours last night. I was down 1.4 pounds today, at least, I don’t know exactly because when I look at the scale last week, my eyes stopped at 134.

I am still reading The Woman in White and listening to Salem Falls. I might put WIW aside to read Bliss. It is due back to the library on 1/2/2008. Today I got After You’d Gone. I read some of it. It looks interesting.

M., Gwen and I went to Danbury because M. needed a coat. She finally found one at Sears. It is Lands End. Gwen and I found clothes at Cold Water Creek. A skirt for each of us and I found a purple sweater, and a pair of red slippers. I can know throw away my ‘Toadily Cool’ ones.
