Didn't Get the Job...

I didn't get the job but I did lose another .8lbs this week for a total of 7. 2lbs since December 2.  Woot!  I think I will be back at 105 again at last.  I am so tired of being FAT!

Potential Job Activities Completed...

PC evaluation completed and submitted, CHIPS assessment completed and submitted ( I'm not sure what that is for), and "Webinar" attended.  Just waiting for my interview invitation and orientation - hope I won't be disappointed.

Life Goes On.....

Brighthouse Networks will be here tomorrow morning to move the cable modem/router and the phone connection from the guest room to my office/Fiber Arts Studio.  I hope to be working from home soon. The PC has to have a wired internet connection and have a CD burner. I have to watch a "webinar" and submit an evaluation of my PC.

Oh, and I have to find my Social Security card.

Training is 7 weeks long and is done at a training center and then I would work from home.  Oh, how I hope this goes well!!!!

Wish me luck.....

Random updates....

The correct headboard for the bed in my guest room was delivered on Tuesday and they took the other one away.  Love the room - it is really coming together.  

My new stove and range hood microwave were delivered and installed. The electrician that installed the microwave told me what needs to be done so that stove can be moved completely against the wall and also how to completely free up 2 outlets that have special block thingies plugged into them and gave me an estimate and hasn't called to schedule an appointment....think I'll call another electrician <3

My Deni 2 quart digital pressure cooker came today.  Woot.  Brown rice and other delectables here I come!

Seventh Weight Watchers Weighin!

Keeping the Weight Loss Going and Other Updates

I have had 6 weigh ins since I recommitted to Weight Watchers and have had a loss at each one.  I am psyched! A couple of them have been very small but still losses.  I use my George Foreman grill almost everyday and the nonstick coating is coming off.  My son got it for me for Christmas several years ago and I really love it.  It is so quick to grill fish, meat or veggies.  I bought one that is a little bigger and has removable grill plates for easier cleaning.  I also ordered a 2 quart pressure digital pressure cooker.

On Tuesday my new ceramic cooktop stove and small upright freezer will be delivered.  The stove has 2 ovens and the smaller one also works as toaster.

I started 2 crocheted afghans.  One is a scrap afghan and the other is fushia squares with a multicolored border.

Oh, I had the guest room furniture delivered on Wednesday and have the guest all set up except for some pictures on the walls.  It looks nice.  Now all I have to do is find other homes for all of the junk that used to be stored in that room, haha!
