Crazy Week

Last week I worked all week and I thought this week I would get to stay at home more. But it was not meant to be. Tuesday the library assistant from the school where I used to work called me asking if I could work since she had a serious leg problem happening and needed to get to a doctor. Wednesday I subbed half a day at the Christian School where I volunteer and then went to the school where I was formerly employed to finish the day. Today (Thursday) I'm at the high school library until about noon and then I'll go back to the elementary school library to shelve books. Tomorrow I'll be at the middle school library in the morning. Ah, retirement.

This week I lost 3.8 pounds and I am very happy about that. I didn't eat things with sugar in them, like cake, cookies, donuts, etc. I believe this really helped. It is my plan to continue with this choice for awhile. I did it once for 9 months--no sugar. So I know it is possible.

I read a blog this morning about a lady who walks 6 miles a day and observes and takes pictures. She records how much money she finds--pennies, dimes. My grandfather used to find money when he walked--like $10 bills. I admire this lady who walks 6 miles a day. It'd take me more than 3 hours. Perhaps to supplement my retirement income I should start walking 6 miles a day. I might find 15 to 20 cents. Invest it wisely and in a few years I'd have $1.00.

Random thoughts from a random person.

Haha. That is funny about the money! I found you thru the blog you mentioned. I will be back when I have more time and read some more of your posts.
If you can cut flour and sugar you could probably lose a lot but I can't do that. I keep sweets out of the house and I walk 5 miles a day about 5 times a week but it's very hard for me to lose.

yes, sometimes I have also a crazy week like yours...

Do you like cinema? You are invited to read my comments about movie I have seen this week:

Carell stars as Dan Burns, a widower and father to three girls. Jane (Alison Pill), the oldest, is subdued and desperately ready to drive.
Cara (Brittany Robertson) is overly dramatic and a bit too involved in the boy she’s know for three weeks.
Lilly (Marlene Lawston) is the youngest, the cutest, and possibly the smartest of the three.
Dan’s wife has been gone for four years, and his entire family is ready for him to move on.
During a traditional weekend spent at his parent’s vacation home, Dan meets Marie (Juliette Binoche), possibly the woman of his dreams, who turns out to be dating his brother Mitch (Dane Cook).

YAY! great job on the weight lost! Don't find it again! Sugar is SO overrated!

We just saw Dan in Real Life... very cute, very clean.
