2sday

Cro's office is celebrating the launch of a new app. It's a database app that has to do with fuel testing so pretty specific to his company. They asked him to make a big batch of his North Carolina BBQ for the party. Our house smells like a NC BBQ pit. :)

A 30' tall Minion went rolling down a highway in Dublin. Cro said it would have been funny if it made that Minion sound while it rolled… BEEE-DOO BEEE-DOOO BEEE-DOO.

blog too quiet

It feels like I've been blogging to myself for weeks. Maybe I am.

It's Monday again which sort of sucks but hmm, why? It's a day of my life and I shouldn't look at it as being a sucky day before it's even proven itself. Sure, it's a day that Cro is gone to his own office and I am focused on starting a new work week too. Maybe rather than saying Monday sucks I should (in the name of perspective) list the things that do and hopefully do not suck about it.

I made an impromptu chili for lunch (and enough for 3 more meals. I had no salsa but did have ground beef, onions, a can of tomato-basil soup and some cayenne pepper. A hot meal was good.

1lb ground beef
chopped vidalia onion (6g net carbs)
tomato-basil soup (38 net carbs)
Divided by 4 servings: 11 carbs per serving


SUCKS
------------------
• having to get up early
• Cro is gone for the day
• I am in work-mode
• having to remind a client of money owed to me
• sending invoices to clients who I bill for monthly work done

DOES NOT SUCK
• finished sending the monthly invoices
• the chili was good
• half the day is gone
• A friend posted that he forgot to remove his glasses before getting into the shower this morning. At least I didn't do that.
• said hi to reader who hasn't posted before
• Cro texted that he plans to leave on-time tonight :)

Sunday

Cro has been baking a pork shoulder all night after having it on the grill for a few hours first. People at his work have requested more of his North Carolina BBQ for a celebratory meeting they are having Monday. Cool that they like his BBQ and request it now and then.

My cousin is going to have us over to "burn some meat" as he says and to play-test a board game that he is developing. Cro plans to freeze some of his BBQ so we'll have some to take with us then.

Fat Shaming

An 11 pound loss doesn't seem much for 5 weeks of effort. Ah well, nothing for it but to keep going. Maybe I should think back on the fat shaming I've experienced. Pfft, that only made me have a poor opinion of the person doing the shaming. Thankfully I can only think of one incident. Maybe it happens more than I notice and thankfully I'm just oblivious to it.

The incident I'm talking about was in meeting a new doctor for my MS who gave me a big-eyed doubtful look, took a glance back at the examination table, then glanced back at me and said she didn't know if there was a weight limit and hoped it doesn't break before motioning for me to go ahead. If it were to break it would have been a Fisher Price doctor table.

That was years ago and I think I was at my top weight of just under 280 (back when I first started this blog). Yeah, 280 is large but it isn't enough to break a doctor exam table. I was there for MS, not weight but I never went back to her because of the lack of respect and because she talked over me rather than listening as I described my latest MS flair-up. I'm not wordy and long-winded so talking over me was a clear indication that my words were of no value.

Have any of you guys experience fat shaming?

Ants, bulldozers and getting lost in the construction labyrinth

Today is Cro's late day at work. He'll go in by 3pm and stay until he has finished the monthly database updates for all of the offices (I think there are 5 or 6 and several of those are offices in other countries). He usually finishes by midnight, give or take.

The movie with Matt was fun. It was a cute movie for Advengers-type stuff. Man shrinking to ant-size and made the captain of an army of ants. At one point one of the ants was reverse-shrunk to the size of a dog. The man's little girl kept it as a doggy-pet. There were a couple of not cute moments when people were killed but I won't spoil it any further for you.

Matt warned me about road construction and that I wouldn't be able to get to his office the normal way. There was one "back road" that I would need to turn down to get to his office and of course I missed it. The Jeep was even treated to a bit of off-road when I turned into an area that turned out to be a dead end of bulldozers and other constructy equipment and vehicles. U-turn, back up the walls of the shallow hole and we were outta there! Matt lead me through the construction labyrinth on the way home.

Sulking Loki

Matt and I are seeing a movie later this afternoon. And it's time for me to stop working and go get ready. :D

Loki has removed himself to the kitty tent and is doing what Cro and I call "playing the piano". That's when he kneads his kitty bed to console himself. He has been refusing to eat his wet food in favor of ham. Since I've given him no ham today he feels slighted. Therefore he's sulking and playing the piano.

downtime

Downtime when it comes to websites isn't a happy vacation moment for me. It's usually a ball of ugly stress. I started work with the surprise of the GoDaddy servers having an issue. The site I was working on was down and the live website (which isn't my work) was also down. In fact, GoDaddy seemed to have issues with all of the hosted sites I checked (I only checked 4) but its own homepage was fine. lol

Anyway, I had backed up the site I was working on last night so I just migrated it from DropBox to a different server (Bluehost) and all was well with being able to continue to work.

Cro let me know last night and again this morning that he doesn't care for GoDaddy. I can't say that I feel much differently after the downtime.

and *patooey*. I just got the work talk about of my system. I sort of really need to get back to it though. *pulls on the proverbial work boots*

Movie with Matt tomorrow! :D
