Well, this was about 14 years and 60 pounds ago, and I was heavily made up. It was easier when I was young and cute. Now? I've barely got any pictures of me with my kid because I run away whenever a camera comes out and systematically delete any pictures that do get taken except the (very) odd flattering one. I feel kinda guilty about that. Maybe I should put on wigs and theatre makeup for every occasion where there might be pictures, haha.

It looks like I'm going to lose $20,000 of my bonus and it will take 3 years for these claims to come off. Can we say $60,000 down the drain?

That is amazing! I don't think I had left the house yet at 4 weeks, and my only goal was to get more than an hour of sleep a day. I was a total wreck after having my kid. Maybe this site would have helped me (if I had had the time to sit down at the computer without total baby meltdown). Good for you!

Oh Mike ... That blows! I had no idea that people filing claims went against your bonuses.

Oh that sucks! I won't say what it sucks because it's not family friendly enough for the forums. Gah, I know you've got to be wanting to throw stuff....I know I would be.

Internet is up and running now, so yay. Still not wanting to do much though....but I'm going to make myself. Eating ice cream followed by Ritz crackers haven't helped me want to do anything though.

I have an unending list of things that need to be done today. Starting with the car, then on to laundry, and an Everest sized mountain of paperwork that I haven't been able to catch up on while actually in my office. Which I need to have completed and back in the store by tomorrow morning. UGHHHHHH I need another vacation. I'm also stressing about money. My savings have been depleted. First there was vacation that had to be paid for, and I plan on putting that back when my tax money comes in. And then there was the phone issue on Sunday. Now, my car needs a crap load of work done to it. I'm broke, and depressed. Now I'm even more depressed because I'm so broke.

I was supposed to do an hour walk today (day off) but there's crazy winds and the rain felt like shards of ice hitting my face, so I just booted it to the store, got what I needed, did a few laps around the store, and booted it home. Unless there's a huge change in the weather, I'm sticking with my half hour of fast/slow/fast walk. I'm not that ambitious.

I know I shouldn't blame anyone else, but hubby hid cookies under the couch and I found them and I ate them There were only 4, and I gave two to my kid, but still...two cookies I wouldn't have otherwise had. But I guess it's four cookies hubby won't have, haha.

Busy day and I am really tired. Will have to catch up tomorrow.

Hope, thanks for the info on the Kraft cheese. I didn't see that at my Kroger grocery store when I looked through what they had--maybe they were just out. I'll look there again and at Meijer and Walmart.

Mern, before you go trekking around, I should tell you it is Kraft Natural Cheese Extra Thin swiss and it IS thin. One slice is 60 calories, 5 grams of fat. So not very low fat but I find it very satisfying. And of course no carbs.

May I ask what is your eating clean plan? What are your "rules"?
