Doing great, hanging in
Friday, August 10, 2012
I am hanging in at 152 pounds but am hoping if I have a clean eating day and a high sweat day I might have another drop in time for my Beautiful Butterfly weigh in tomorrow. Here's hoping!
Update on my family concerns: I've talked to my daughter every day since the "no heartbeat" doctor appointment, and she seems calm and accepting. She figures if the doctor was REALLY concerned he would have sent her to the hospital. But as she has no other signs that anything is wrong she is choosing to remain positive. Yay for her!
My dad did move all the money out of the account that he gave the stranger the account number and routing number to. HOWEVER, the guy sent him a certified check IN THE MAIL for the $7000 cost of the tractor. So my question to my dad was, WHY DID HE NEED YOUR ACCOUNT NUMBER IN THE FIRST PLACE? Of course another cardinal rule of Craigslist is NEVER ACCEPT A MONEY ORDER OR CASHIER'S CHECK because they are easy to forge. Your bank will accept it and credit your account but weeks later when they can't collect they TAKE it from your account. So I'm still concerned about this, but if he only loses $7000 instead of everything in that account it will be a small price to pay. Chances are everything will be fine, but we lock our doors and take all kinds of precautions against the occasional dishonest person that shows up. There have been other signs of poor judgment from my dad that merit keeping an eye on. For now I'm keeping my mouth shut and letting the chips fall where they may.
I think I'm going to love my new tablet! It's cute and fun and it will be a breeze to travel with. Now that I don't need my laptop for teaching online classes I don't need to take anything that big or heavy. We need SOMETHING because we like to download our vacation photos every night so we can review the day. We also like internet access to research what we are seeing. Like most people we usually pack WAY too much when we travel, but this trip we're determined not to check a bag. It costs an extra $50 to check a bag round trip between Little Rock and San Francisco, how ridiculous is that? So we are each going to have our one small suitcase that will go in the overhead and then a carry on that goes under the seat. Normally my carry on is the computer bag, but with the tablet I'll be able to take a lot more. Woo hoo!
So not exactly a weight loss blog but that's what's going on here.
Have a great day, Sparkpeople, and have a wonderful Friday! And remember, your body doesn't know it's the weekend, so just STAY THE COURSE!
