Sigh.....

January 6th, 2007 at 02:55 am

I am frustrated with this year, yes I know we are only 5 days into it, but it has been a drag so far.

I fell again at work, this time I slipped on the steps and landed on my backside. Scared my DD. I have a nice big black bruise on the back of my thigh and one on my hip. I couldn't claim workers comp because I was not on the clock yet. UGH. I didn't go to the Dr anyway since I still have muscle relaxers and anti-inflamitories from the last fall.

I need to change that last statement. I didn't go to the Dr for injuries frm the fall I went because I have fallen 3 times in two weeks. He did some tests and determined that I am just having a run of bad luck. Cost me a $20.00 co-pay to tell me that.

I did go to McDonald's for supper for me and the kids. I told them we are going to eat there only one time this weekend.( as oppossed to 3 or 4 times) I hope I can stick to it. I would like to cut out fast food but the 3 and 5 year old would go on a scream strike.

I recieved some movies from a fellow freecycler and posted some things to give away.

I had a talk with the kids last night about going through some of their toys and giving them to goodwill or freecycling them and mommy was going to go through some of her things also. They agreed that they had enough toys and that they could give some toys that they do not play with anymore to some boys and girls who do not have many toys. We will see how much they understood when we actually pack them up to give away. Could get interesting.

PLan on cleaning out the van tomorrow also. My mom always says that the less you have in your vehicle the better gas milage you will get. I can see her point if I am carrying bricks, but just how much does a floorboard of McDonalds bags weigh.
I know it weighs on my emotional state of mind.

Well I am going to go make a list of things that need to get done tomorrow. My mini goal will be to accomplish 5 items on the list.

Goodnight.

    You might be having a run of bad luck, but one of the things that I discovered at the gym is that I had very bad balance. It happens very gradually, but made my walking and my movements very restrictive. Walking on ice was a nightmare - baby steps and the feeling that every step was my last.

    Hey, that's a great start! I bet if you cut it out gradually they won't even notice. We did McDonald's and other fast food a lot more when my kiddo's were young like yours. Now, 2 are teenagers and one is an active 8 year old. Honestly, I just can't afford to go there anymore. It costs me at least $20 a trip. We gradually cut back on going instead of stopping cold turkey. Now, they never even ask to go. They know it's only a special occasion deal now. BUT, they do get allowance and sometimes they decide they want to use their allowance on fast food, which is fine with me. It's their choice!
