Day 5.....

Well, it's day 5 and "Mr. Burns" is still sick....it went from "sinusitis" to some kind of inner ear thing.....he said he was too "dizzy" to drive and since he commutes from Indy every day, he has supposedly been "working from home".....yeah, right. If so, show me proof. I am so annoyed and ticked off, you would not believe. I can not get past the tongue lashing he gave me when I was sick last time, and actually still came into work....to make sure his reports were done on time.
Last Saturday was a mandatory sales call day, he didn't show up for that. Said he was calling from home, yet I have received no sales, no correspondance from him what so ever....
If I had missed five days of work, due to an Inner ear problem, I would have done been fired!
I have no trust in this guy, I do not feel sorry for this guy and I think he is milking this little illness for all its worth. My Branch Manger, the Region Manager...they are all ticked off and it would not surprise me in the least, since not only has he played this illness a little too far, but his efforts in sales are horrible. He doesn't care! During our last conference call, the Region Manager had to yell at him several times, because he wasn't paying attention.
I do have a feeling, when and if he does come back, that he is going to be reprimanded if not terminated.
We will see...

This has been a long busy week. Thank Goodness Friday is almost here. Although, once again, I was told on Monday, that we have to work again for a mandatory sale day this Saturday morning. I am hoping they let me work from 8-noon....because after that, I have to drive to Terre Haute (2 hours from me) for my oldest son...it is his Senior Prom and I have to be there to see him all dressed up, to take pictures of him and his new girlfriend...(yes, he broke up with the other one, thank goodness~I never really cared for her)...so, I am excited to meet her.
I will make sure to post pictures on Sunday or Monday.....

I got a half day off yesterday, (God forbid they pay overtime for this Saturday nonsense) which was nice...I came home at noon and hubby and I went for lunch, sans kids...it was lovely....then he took me shopping. I have lost so much weight, all of my clothes from last summer do not fit...I am now in a size zero....so, finding clothes has become really challenging. We were able to find me a few new outfits at Body Central and Wet Seal....I love those stores! Hubby was quite generous and I am very lucky to have such a great guy! He takes such good care of me.
We came back home just in time to relax for a half hour before the kids got off the bus.
Then the youngest, Max and I, went to Walmart and to make a quick stop by the seamstress I have hired, who is making me a couple new skirts for summer, to try one of the completed ones on. She did a fabulous job on it...the only thing I didn't care for was when she measured my waist, she said it was bigger than what i thought. I measured it at the gym, it was 27 inches, she said it was 29...what the hell? I didn't argue, but I thought to myself, that can't be right. I just bought extra small clothes, my pants are size zeros...so, I don't think she measured it right. the skirt was a little loose in the waist, but hubby paid for it anyway. It will work, it's just I don't think she was accurate in the waist measurement. It's 27 inches, and I will stand by that...lol...

I think I am going to explore the possibility of becoming a personal fitness trainer...I have gotten so into working out, and have received a lot of compliments from people at the gym on my workout routine, endurance, etc...that I think it is something that I would like to do. But, I may be to old to start that kind of job, I don't know.....I also think I am going to take this blog to a different level, maybe incorporate some fitness stuff on here. Like my workouts, my food intake, etc...

Would any of you be interested in that?

Well, guess I better get off here and get my work day started...

Dixiechick...out!

I would be really interested in some diet/fitness posts! In the last year and four months I've gone from 152 pounds to 114 and from a size 12 to a 3. But I am loosing motivation with the exercising now. I still eat right but can't ever seem to get myself to the gym anymore. Its nice to see other people's routines and maybe kick myself into gear!

Also while Mr Burns is MIA, make sure you are at the top of your game. Maybe you'll get his job or something:)

Nashville? Hope you had fun here--lots of stuff to do.

Yes I would love to know what you eat!! I try to walk the dogs several miles each week but I just don't have time to go to the gym very often. I try to maintain my weight by diet.

Prom photos--yeah!
