Friday At Last!!!!!

Good afternoon, lets see where to begin...well since I'm typing this blog it's plain to see that I didn't end up in the County Jail but, let me just ask you this....why are those darn Weight Watchers people so happy all of the time, ughhhhh!

So I get there, and because I'm a super crack-pot I get my self all worked up EVERY WEEK about stepping on that was no different. So far I've had a loss evertime I've gone, pretty good ones too. Well this morning I approach the scale like I'm ready to do battle, hop on and wait, tick tick tick!!! Oh Come On Just Tell Me How Much I've Lost! And now the moment we've all been waiting for.....GREAT JOB Lynda, so I think wow o.k. I can stop sucking in my stomach and then she spills it, You're down a 1/4 of a pound.

WHAT A 1/4 of A POUND, what the ----! I've starved myself all week long I've eaten all of those veggies and that's all you've got a rotten 1/4 of a pound. I just smiled and slunk over to the meeting room...more to follow. Tune in next week same blog same place!

I'll show them a crummy 1/4 of a pound, they way she said it I was thinking at least 50 or 60 lbs, lol!

After that I took myself over to the Christmas Tree Shop, nothing like a little Retail Therapy to perk a girl up...and what did I buy you ask...well a new wicker basket since my other one was eaten, a new rug for my bathroom, yup you guessed it that was eaten too, and a few other odds and ends.

After that it was off to the market, my hubby wouldn't let me take pictures so maybe next week I'll go alone and take pics.

Well remember I promised to show you my new they are!

The top one is for Nikky & Mike's engagement party, and the bottom one is for Kristen & Gregg's wedding (she's my BFFs daughter)

I figured I could snazz one for Kristen & Greg's wedding up with some big chunky beads and well you know!

O.k., enjoy the rest of your Friday. More tomorrow!

Thursday Night Throw Down....!

Hello, TGIT! I work 4 very long 10-11 hour days so that I can have Fridays off, woooooohoooooo & this is the first thing I reached for when I came in this evening!

It's only 1 point, that's Weight Watchers talk. And that's where I'll be going tomorrow morning bright and early, so keep your fingers crossed!

My monster dogs are being so bad tonight, they are really behaving like!

We're hoping for a nice weekend, I'd love to get to the beach again and work on my tan. We have our daughters engagement party at the end of August and my girlfriends daughters wedding the weekend after...I promise to show you the dress, maybe tomorrow.

Cindy Lou said "I'd really love to find a way to get together" well, Cindy it looks like we'll be out that way next fall 2010. North Carolina for a few days, we will probably take a day trip to Parris Island and then we're free to shop!!! WoooHoooo.

O.k. Blogville, I'm off way to tired tonight to be witty. More tomorrow unless I wind up in the county jail for punching the Weight Watchers lady in the nose, hehehehe!

Retail Wednesday!

Look what I bought cute!

now, don't tell hubby, I'm just going to hang them in the closet and pretend like they've been there all along, lol!!!! I know I'm bad!

My husband is a big hunter he goes shot gun and bow hunting (Bailey is his hunting partner) and loves to go to the range to practice. He's befriended an elderly gentleman named Gene who taught him how to use a long-bow (kind of like the ones the Indians used) well, Gene just took such a liking to him that he gave him two of his long-bows that he couldn't shoot anymore. One is an antique and the other he made himself. I wish I had a picture of him to show all of you. I'll get hubby to bring the camera again and take a few pics of them shooting their bows. In the meantime he is a picture of my hubby firing my Marines AR something or other. Lil 'Billy has been out at the range all week in the hot humid Okinawa sun and asked his dad to go out and fire the Old Bess a few times for him ~ we I e-mailed the pics to Lil Billy earlier...

My favorite show is on at 9:00pm, YIKES!!!!

O.k., I'm off to check out MySpace & Facebook before my show comes on....more tomorrow. Have a great night.....

Tuesday 2 More Days To Go!!!

Hello everyone! Since I showed you how my day began yesterday I though I would show you how it ended,actually it ends this way every night.

Ms. Bailey, she's my little snuggy baby! She sleeps over every night & Mr. Big Boy Max sleeps downstairs in his dogie bed. Hubby works 3rd shift so it's just me and the "kids". We have to wait for Billy to get up before we can go to bed, I usually try to stay awake because if I nap before bed I can't get to sleep!

Needless to say since my day started so early yesterday I kind of over slept this morning, YIKES...we are usually up at 4:30am but this morning we woke up at 5:47am, I have to be in work by 7:00am ~ I made it with a minute to spare....this is what I feel like right about now.....

I am going to write a quick letter to my son, the Marine and ask him to ship one of these home to me, even if he has to ship it part by part. I'll learn how to put the darn thing back together.
I thought it would help during drive time traffic, which can I tell you I hate!!!!! If you aren't doing at least 85 mph at 6:30am you have no business on the highway never mind the high speed lane, grrrrrrrrrr ~ yes I do suffer from Road Rage!

One more quick item and then I'm off to Farmville.....

Chicken "N" Cheese Casserole ~ Yummo It's what's for dinner tonight at the Casa de Platt.

2 cups cooked macaroni
2 cups coarsely chopped cooked chicken
2 cups canned condensed cream of chicken soup (you can use any cream soup)
1 bag of baby broccoli florets
1 cup fat free milk
8 ounce package of low-fat cheese

heat oven to 350 degrees
cook pasta & broccoli, drain well (I usually just cook it all at the same time)
heat soup, milk and chicken
stir in mac&broc
add 1/2 bag of cheese
combine all ingredients and spoon into a large casserole dish (I spray the dish with non-stick spray)
top with remaining cheese
bake until cheese is bubbly and golden brown

I make ahead and cut into servings so that we just have to plate it up heat it up and eat it up. I serve with a salad or veggie. Very yummy!

Monday, Monday.....blah blah blah blah blah....

Hello, well back again day started at 3:47am, no my Marine didn't call my baby girl was ready to get up and start her day .....

So, we got up breakfast, showered and off to work. I was ready for a nap by the time I got there.

We had a crazy day today (I'm going to take pics of the gals tomorrow and post them up so you'll know who I'm talking about). For those of you that don't know I work for a busy cardiology practice, located in Pawtucket, RI...I do the billing/coding ~ oh yeah! Anyway patient statements went out over the weekend so every silly old person in the state of Rhode Island called to discuss, dispute or just flat out say they weren't going to pay. And, really, how can you argue with somebody who can't even remember that they came to the office in the first place?

Well, after a day of hell I needed some retail therapy....see what I got????

Shhhhhhhh....don't tell the big guy!!!!!! Got them for my girlfriends daughters wedding, did you get all of that? I'll show you the dress another day, I love to shop!!!!

When I got in I was greeted at the door by yup you guessed it, Bailey. She had quite the afternoon for herself. She ate a wicker basket, a magazine, my new Old Navy flip flop (just the right one so I can still wear the left and hop all about), last week she ate my white pair and then she threw-up on my new area rug, grrrrrrr!
now she's downstairs trying to eat her "baby"....such fun!

O.k., I have to get over to Facebook and check on my farm, so see ya'll tomorrow (hehehehe, inside joke) oh and ya'll come back now ya hea'!

Officially Blogging My Life Away!

Where do I begin?????? Let’s see I’m 42 years old, I have a wonderful husband, his name is Billy or as Morgs calls him "Big Bill"’ll see why in a second he is...

I also have two of the most beautiful children in the world, yes I’m partial but they really are the most beautiful precious children a mother could ask for!

This is Nikky she's is 25, she is engaged to Mike, and we love him he’s a keeper! They are getting married next year, yahooooo!!!! So she's pretty busy making arrangements! Ughh, I never thought my Baby Girl would grow up and get married, makes me feel so old. I go from being happy, happy, happy to crying my eyes out....I do wish I could shrink her down a bit and hold her tight!!!!

And this is my baby boy Billy, he's 19. He is a Lance Corporal in the United States Marine Corps, he is currently stationed in Okinawa, Camp Hansen. We are so proud of him!
I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, As long as I'm living my baby you'll be.

Then there's Max and Bailey, they are our four legged children, Max will be 9 in a few weeks and Bailey is two ~ they are cute but they are soooo BAD!

Max (L) & Bailey (R)

And that's about it....I'll probably be blogging at night since I have to be at work for 7:00am ~ if you all know me I am an early bird but....if I start blogging I'll never get out the door. So I'll see you back here tomorrow night!
