Happy Sunday

I can't believe it's been a week since I posted anything. Shame on me. Been crazy at work, and I've been pretty beat when I came home. Some things to share......

At weigh in on Thursday I lost another 3 pounds!!!!! Doing the happy dance....which I hope will cause me to lose another pound!!! LOL With the 3 pounds gone that brings my total to weight loss since June 4th to.....drum roll please..............................................................45 pounds!!!!!

I can't believe I've lost that much! Still have a long way to go, but hey.....I really feel confident that I can do it this time.

Skip, John and me went to the circus yesterday. I haven't been to Ringling Brothers show since Sarah was 4. Of course I had to take a pic of the elephants. They are my favorite animal. Don't ask me why.....I guess it would be because they feel loss when they come across the bones of a elephant, the way they care for there young. I just think they are intelligent, and caring animals. Plus I think I related to them as a child since I've always been overweight.
We drove the car to the Rapid Transit station then took the Rapid to downtown Cleveland to see the show. There was so much to look at!!! The parade that they had in the beginning was just Grand!!! Horses, Elephants, motorcycles, clowns, and more!!! Hard to see it all as they had so much going on at one time. Only thing they didn't have that I missed seeing was a tight rope walker.

They cut our hours at work. Starting next week I'll be working 8 to 4:30 instead of 8 to 5. They also cut the Saturday shift from 9 to 5 to 10 to 3. We also found out this week that they put a pay freeze into effect. We will not be getting a raise come January. They are still giving us our bonus at the end of the year, but next year they will be much smaller. Guess it's tough all over.

I'm going to go get some breakfast then run out to visit with mom. Hoping to stamp later today. I haven't been in the stamping mood all week, but that didn't stop me from stopping at Pat Catan's earlier in the week to buy more dollar stamps. Like I really need them!!!! LOL
But they had some really cute and fun ones! Love the old time Santa. The bears aren't really me, but I thought they would be fun to color. My nieces may enjoy them.
