Am home

Got home around 7ish tonight from Salina. Visit at mom's was good.

We went to Wal-Mart today, to get the rice cooker mom was going to get me as my birthday present. We walked in, got the cart, headed towards the home appliances. When we got to that aisle, we were searching and finally found the ONLY one they had... I decided I wanted to at least have 2-3 to compare and choose from so we headed over to Target. Target proved to be a lot more productive as I came out of the store with this rice cooker. I can't wait til payday so I can go grocery shopping and start using it! Though I have decided... I need to rearrange my kitchen a bit... the lack of counterspace is um... inconvenient at best.

I've also challenged Mom to hold each other accountable and start walking at least 3 times a week and start working our way back up to walking on a very regular basis like we started doing last year. The odd thing is, she and I weigh the same (we checked the scale this afternoon). So at least we're on the same starting point essentially weight wise. So tomorrow, I am going to start wearing my pedometer again. And I've started a walking filter. If you want to be in it, comment and let me know. I'd hate to subject anyone to that daily that doesn't wanna read it (hmm though it is *my* journal... haha).

I'm also going to be doing some research into some healthier recipes before going grocery shopping this weekend. At least I have the water intake thing going in my favor. I have a 64 oz mug at work that I fill up in the morning and drink it through out my workday. Then when I get home, I have a Brita water pitcher that I drink water from. Now I just have to motivate myself into eating better and even more motivation towards doing actual exercising and walking on a regular basis.

Talked to my Uncle Mike on yahoo messenger a bit this evening and then got to talk to him on the phone. It really made his day when I called him on Christmas and reopened the lines of communication. It's funny because I take after my Uncle a lot more than I do my dad.

Well, I guess I'd better start getting ready for bed. Gotta get up and go to work in the morning. Hopefully by the end of this week we will know how the shift bid went and what schedules/supervisors we got. It'd be really cool to get my old supervisor back.

Wow, KC Royals won their 2nd game in a row... I'm shocked! Though last night's game was far more entertaining, hehe.

Stopped at Dara's Fast Lane this morning (a gas station) on my way to work and bought a K-State 64oz mug to take to work with me. Filled it with water and drank about 3/4 of it at work and the rest when I got home. My plan is to at least drink 64oz of water a day and this is perfect for me, esp since I can take it to work and have it at my desk once I am out on the floor taking calls on my own.

The Chicken Rice Casserole I cooked last night and took to work with me today was yummy. :) I'm trying to decide if I want to make the recipe that was on the back of the Cream of Chicken soup can next or make Skillet Chicken and Broccoli... Or maybe I'll flip through the cookbooks some more and figure something else out entirely.

Managed to get some of my clothes actually folded and put away earlier. Tomorrow hopefully I get even more put away and maybe even finally cart some of the empty boxes upstairs to put near the trash bins outside.

For now though, I've been up since 6:30am and I think it may finally be bedtime... I'm starting to doze off in my chair and I know sleeping in my desk chair wouldn't be comfortable at all.
