Apparently I am an emotional eater. It doesn't matter what emotion I'm having if I'm emotional I'm an eater. It's a miracle I'm not bigger than I am. Anyways.. cross your fingers! Hopefully I stop wanting to eat everything in sight soon.

A couple weeks ago my boss pulled one of her stunts. Long story short I worked from home during a snow storm and she made me take personal time because I didn't clear this with her. Sure.. I left her an email the night before saying "Just in case is this ok?" and sure.. I called her that morning and left her a message. "There is 13 inches of snow here and we're in white out conditions. I'm going to work on X, Y, and Z. If you need me for anything call me at ###-####" and Sure... I sent her emails throughout the day, I sent her boss emails throughout the day, heck I even sent funny emails to co-workers. Apparently I needed to do some sort of snow dance and a ritual that involved killing livestock.

This was too much for me. After 4 yrs I dusted off my resume and posted it everywhere. Applied for the ONLY other job in town doing what I do and applied for anything I didn't do but thought I could do. I can milk cows. I can do anything. Heck I could be plumber.. pipe.. water.. pipe gunk.. We do it all the time in the barn.

Monday after yet another event where she got mad at me for one thing (she wasn't cc'd on an email asking for data) then took it out on me throughout the entire freaking day. The woman actually came into my cube 4 times within 2 minutes about the same project, each time throwing her arms in the air, looking pretty much insane, repeating the same thing, telling me I cannot communicate, because I asked a co-worker to look at a program I had built and verified it made sense to her.. the end freaking user. Took 1 minute but she saw it before the boss. OMG. Ritual killing of paperclips demanded. I was ready to snap and quit or get fired. Anything to get away from this woman.

Yesterday I get an email from the ONLY other job in town for a writer. They want to see my writing samples! They want to know more about me! Me! Granted this doesn't mean crap. It isn't an interview. It sure as crap made me absolutely freaking delighted though. So cross your fingers they want me. Everyone should want me. I'm fabulous. Now I just have to send the email back with the samples to show them of fabulous I am and stop hunting down chocolate so I'll fit into my slacks if they do call for an interview. So cross your fingers. Cross my sleeves behind my back so I can't reach my mouth. Cross something.. anything.

I haven't been on here in forever. I've been logging, exercising, and being relatively accountable. At least as accountable as you can be with 3 kids. You try saying no to a 2 yr old feeding you chips. If it weren't enough they taste good its the only time he wasn't running through the house in nothing but a diaper pretending to be a puppy. Just like the only time he wasn't whining he wanted down at the store was when he was feeding me popcorn chicken. Luckily I'm back at work now so the only person feeding me during the day is co-workers. They seem to stop at 1 chocolate covered pretzel though and don't sit in front of me seeing how many they can shove in my mouth at one time while they giggle with delight.

Good news is I've gone back to tracking my calories burned. According to the little dohicky I burn between 2200-2500 calories a day. I figure so long as I eat less than I burn I'm doing alright. I'm not sweating the chocolate covered pretzel or coffee with cream. So long as I workout that day, ate some fruits and veggies, and still have a 500 calorie deficit I consider it my prize for the day. So long as I'm not double fisting m and ms I'm doing better than I was before.. not that I will admit to double fisting m & ms.. or chocolate chips.. or sneaking rum balls in the middle of the night. We won't even mention the driveby stealing of ramen noodles from the preteen. It's not my fault she left her lunch unguarded.

See? You didn't miss much. Life is still insane. I'm still going nuts. The only change is I'm wearing a dohicky and it tells me how many cookies I can sneak without them going to my rear end. I love dohickys. If I'm still wearing it in 3 months i think I will get a fitbit. Because dohickys are fun. And that one's waterproof.. I've already stumbled into the shower with this one still strapped to my arm. Luckily I noticed it before the second verse of the lego movie song "Everything is Awesome" Listen to it. I dare you. You'll get it stuck in your head too and suddenly find yourself standing in front of the copier at work singing it.. out loud... while you try to figure out how to make copies without changing the toner because well.. I changed the toner last time and it's not my turn.
