This Saturday it's my turn to host the girlsnight. The host prepares dinner, creates a theme and plans the evening. Usually it ends up being a texas hold'em night, which is probably what we will do this time too. The problem is I have NO idea what to fix for dinner. Since I'm doing NS and plan to stick to it 100%, I'm trying to fix something that will be close to what I'll have. So I think I'm going to do this the easy way and make a frozen lasagna, texas toast, salad and dessert. That way I can have my lasagna, salad and my dessert. Making a dessert for the girls and not eating it is going to be soooo hard. The plan is to make a brownie with mint chocolate chip icecream layered with hot fudge and cool whip. There only thing close to this in the NS plan is the Mint Chocolate bar, I think I might put it in the microwave for a few seconds and them put a dollop of fat free cool whip on top. I've got to be strong and make good decisions. I'm so close to the blue bear I can't take steps backwards.
Today was a very hectic day at work, we are switching to a new system and we have mandatory training classes this week and next week which makes it really hard to get the regular work done. It addition to the training we have to complete homework and quizes after each session. But after the training I realized what today was, we have a massage therapist come to our office every other Thursday at 3:30pm to give us 30 minute table massages. You would not believe how good you feel after a massage. After sitting at a computer all day and the stress of the job it is the best thing in the world to have someone get all those nasty pressure points that cause neck and shoulder pain and the headaches, after 30 minutes we are all so happy and nice.
Remember in my last post the guy on light duty who really isn't hurt that I was going to fire? Well, I didn't actually fire him on Tuesday because he had a dr's appt and I didn't want him being upset about losing his job and tell the dr that he was in such horrible pain, blah, blah, blah so anyways he went to the dr, had the test done, the next day he was so sore he couldn't bend his leg so he went back to the dr. He came in after his appointment and said the dr released him and inside I'm singing hallelujah and then the door hit me in the face. I read what the dr wrote, yes he released him with a permanent work restriction. Which means I may have to keep him on light duty forever or until he quits. My only out is on Monday when he turns in his timecard, if he writes in that he worked 8 hours on Monday I have him because the lady at the nursing home that he was reporting to said he did not work on Monday and she would sign something to that fact. So I can fire him for falsifying his timecard. Let's hope he's the worm we think he is.
So as I sit here at the computer, I'm relaxed and calm. The crap of today is gone for the time being.
Wish me luck with the girls night and if you have any better ideas for dessert (that won't be so tempting) leave me a comment and let me know what I should do...
I didn't forget how to knit...
