Last Day

   All right, tonight is my last night.   I got to work last night the place was packed to the gills,  Wow, ran all night long.  That will keep me out of trouble.  If I can survive tonight my long stretch off begins tomorrow.  I am soooooo ready for it.

     I went and checked on the egg cam, baby chicks now!   Bummer I missed them hatching but they are so cute.  And the poor eagle looks like she is getting a nice ride on a windy day.  I get sick just watching it.

      Last night at work I had a potpie Rick bought me for supper.  It was a turkey one.  I didn't think anything about it and heated it up and enjoyed.  After I ate I read the box..   Yikes...660 calories!  I didn't even look at the fat content.  Did you have any idea they were that many calories?  I immediately felt 10 pounds heavier.

    Power of suggestions.

     I have been visiting journals today and going back to read their first entry.  I always read back through my old entries.  Some about my MIL make me laugh and cry.  Here is one that really gave me fits then but it makes me giggle and miss her.  Some of you will remember it.  click here.

    Well Rick is making me a wonderful calorie ladened supper.  The man loves to torment me.  Thanks for all the good vibes on staying well.  It worked.

The last night's always the best because you know there's no work tomorrow. Have a great Thursday.

Yep, pot pies are shockers aren't they? So many foods like those that look innocent enough and kind of healthy, even!!! I always say "no wonder Americans have such weight issues"!! lol

You're first entry was good, and funny....well, now anyhow :)

Pooh hugs,

I recalled that entry. It made me laugh! Aren't you glad you keep a journal?
Enjoy your time off...and have a good weekend.

Last night huh???  You're lucky.  I'm just on day number two here, and feel a little sick and light headed to boot.  Hopefully that will pass.  Pot Pies are so good, guess I now know why...lots of calories and fat.

I went over for a visit to read a wonderful conversational entry.
Isn't it wonderful that you wrote that all down so that you could look back on it and share it with your new reaader's too.
I enjoyed that visit with you and Bettty Julie.  Thank you so much.

I had to read backwards to find out about the eagle cam.  I bet those chicks are sweet.  Too bad you missed the hatching.  I do remember that entry you made.  How things change in a litte over a year.  Sending you some good thoughts to get through the last night.  Chris

Men don't think about calorie content, they can almost eat anything and it doesn't show up on them the way it does us. I went back and read the entry on your MIL, thanks for the chuckle. (Hugs) Indigo
