I have always been in the habit of making lists. Sometimes I will even make the same list a few times and leave it in different places. My oldest daughter had once told me that I make lists for EVERYTHING, and I make more lists then anyone else she knows. She would laugh if she found shredded up paper in the trashcan because she knew if she put the paper back together like a puzzle that it would be one of my many lists.
I still make lists for trivial stuff, but not as often as before. Course now I can’t remember shit without writing stuff down in a list or on a calender. Supposedly some people say I am OCD because of it. I say they are full of hogwash.
So anyways, This week seems to be getting busy. Here’s my schedule so far…
Today/Tuesday: Organize my desk
Tomorrow/Wednesday: Get house ready for when Sharon comes home
Thursday: Go with my aunt to her Dr. appt
Friday: Hopefully the washer gets fixed so I can do laundry
Weekend (Sat & Sun): hopefully I get to enjoy some of my town’s 250 year celebration
Next Monday: I have a Dr. appt @ the spine clinic in Dartmouth
Well I need to get back to organizing my desk…I spend my time with my laptop then I do organizing anything else which is why that job takes so darn long. Earlier this morning, my laptop decided to put itself in “hibernation” mode and then wouldn’t let me turn it back on for awhile. Guess I need to put this week’s schedule on a calender in case I can’t get to any list on my laptop.
Now I have been reading a blog from a lady living in Arizona for a couple years now, and quite often she posts different lists titled her “Fab 5”. Seeing as I can’t think of anything else to post today, I figured I might as well try to come up with my own list of “Fab 5’s”
- 5 (non-food) things I want to buy: Kindle (never replaced my broken one), camera battery charger (left my in AZ), more time on my cell phone, new laptop, memory sticks to hold more pics
- Last 5 movies I watched: Fargo, Hansel & Gretel, My Cousin Vinny, True Girt..(the new one), Damn I can’t think of a 5th one
- 5 things I wish I had a college degree in: Photography, Nutrition, Computer Programming, Nursing, Web Design
- 5 places I still want to visit: Alaska (yes I have been before, but I want to see more), Coast of GA (hope to visit in October with my aunt), Hawaii, Canada, Australia (need to add PASSPORT on my list of things to buy)
- 5 things I miss from Arizona: public transportation, variety of grocery stores, funky little coffee shops, pretty flowers/plants everywhere, unique artwork everywhere
Well that’s about it for now. I need to clean up my room a bit before I go stay at my Auntie G’s tonight. She will help me with some of the paperwork I got from the “NH Housing Authority”. Still hoping to get into my own place by the end of the year.

We have about 25 more weeks till the end of this year (yes I am already counting).
I got to thinking that if I lost…no, got rid of 2 pounds a week, then I would be 50 pounds lighter by New Years. Now usually I can sit here and read stuff online about how to do it, but in my real life it never works because I don’t have my own money for grocery shopping or my own kitchen to prepare food.
But I gotta find a way for this to work!!!
Now there is a scale in the bathroom I use, and I step on it quite often. Sometimes a few times a day. The number goes up & down alot even within the same day. So this morning I got out my tape measure and decided to wrap it around my middle where it met at my belly-button. I looked down and saw the number 46.5 inches.
Now I wear my the waist-band of my pants up higher then my belly-button, but this seemed to be a good spot to remember where to keep track of measurements.
If I am able to lose the 50 pounds by the end of the year, then I haven’t got a clue what a good number for a measurement would be right now, but I do know that 46+ inches ain’t it.
It would seem that the scale isn’t all that reliable and maybe the tape measure might give me a better
Actually with 1 broken tooth on the top, and an abscessed tooth on the bottom, this should be the perfect time to start losing weight.
