Relaxing Sunday

What a great 3-day weekend! I got a lot done - not as much as I would have liked - but enough, plus I needed to take it easy on my poor shoulder. I finally broke down and went to a new chiropractor who diagnosed me with tendonitis/bursitis in my right shoulder. Taking a shirt off was painful, much less trying to lift, push, pull anything. We got our ducts sucked, replaced the air filter (didn't know we had to do that - oops!), grilled some kick ass rib-eyes with a new potato salad recipe, took 2 hikes with the dogs, went to the gym, got a massage (hey, doctor's orders!). The garage didn't get swept and my shelves didn't get hung, but I can do that all next weekend - a 4-day weekend!

I think we're actually planning on going to The Great Minnesota Get Together. I don't think I've ever been to a state fair, so it should be fun. I know there are rides, crafts, animals, exhibitions, food on a stick. I mean, who can pass up Hot Dish on a Stick? OK, I don't know what that is either, but it's one of the hottest new foods being offered at the fair. I think I'll stick to what I know I can eat.

Work should start to get easier. I made two offers on Thursday and just waiting to work out the details on one before I can make the official announcements. There is some drama, however. The woman who replaced me in my former position is messing up left and right and spreading the blame. I guess she tried to tell the VP the reason why she didn't get a report to him on time was because I took the staplers. Um, hello? You're an admin - order one! Oh, wait, that's right, in the 7+ months you've been there you haven't ordered any supplies - you rely on one of the other admins to do it for you! After getting tired of being in the middle of the drama (the leaders she supports and who I used to support and the other 2 admins have been coming to me for weeks to vent) I had a long talk with my former boss about what I was seeing and hearing. We'll see if anything changes (early indication is NO). I don't like to get into petty crap, but don't blame me for something I have nothing to do with.

I'm a little disappointed in the weight loss right now. The scale dipped down to 186 and then has bounced between 186 and 1-flippin'-89. I know it's almost "that time" so I can't worry about it too much, but I'm so close to my surgeon's goal, I just want to get under 185 and work from there. I did buy a size 12 skirt at Target (50% off, baby!) and it fits - I might actually take it back to see if there is a size 10. The suit jacket is still a 16, but that's because of my shoulders and chest. A size 14 did fit but it was tight across the bust if I wanted to button it.

Despite this, I am staying on track with my foods, although probably not eating enough. I'm going to try a new fish recipe tomorrow with a spicy Asian coleslaw. I got some beautiful sea bass fillets and can't wait to try cooking them. I'm glad to be back cooking different things. Even though I can only eat a few bites, I love being able to get tastes of really good and tasty food.

Off to finish making lunch (leftover steak wrap, marinated green beans) and to get dinner ready (leftovers - no cooking!). I think we're going to watch the season finale of Deadwood on HBO and finish off the weekend relaxing...
