I hate feeling stupid...

and I hate being made to look stupid.

I know I shouldn't let things or people get to me. Unfortunately they do.

Right now for example: something is really screwed on my company's WordPress pages. I can't even get into the admin page. I've done everything I can think of and put posts on the forum. But nothing I tried work and no one has replied. Now our clients are complaining and I don't know what to do.

As for being made to look stupid, I was told some facts and passed them on. Ends up I was wrong so I feel like an idiot for repeating them. I also hate that all these haters jump on the wagon to slam me and others about how much we suck because of these kind of mistakes.

One of these things ended up being true. The sad thing is: I'm so glad I didn't make a mistake and make a fool of myself that even though the thing is negative, I feel good.

People seriously need to get lives and I seriously need to find a way to let these things go.

Diet tracker

I put a diet tracker on the blog so you don't have to get bored hearing me talk about it and yet I get to be happy by posting what I've lost.

You know what's funny? There are no happy diet smileys. LOL

When your human is away

John had a business trip last week. You never saw a dog more miserable than Rico. As much as he loves me, we always teased that he puts John first. Last week proved it.

He looked for him each day. Each day he got a little lower. He has a unique way of snuggling with John and he tried it with me. I obviously just wasn't as good. By Saturday, he sat in John's favorite chair.

When John got home, he didn't know whether to run, hop, or wiggle so he did all of them & launched himself at John.

And people say dogs feel nothing for us.

When being a Disney geek gets you in trouble.

Not trouble per se. But last week I had the top down on my car and the stereo going. It was such a great feeling that I completely blew by my exit.

So I turned around at the next exit.  And totally blew by the exist again. Just signing along and having a ball.

So why did I say it's being a Disney geek is behind it all. The music I was listening to?

Phineas and Ferb

C'mon! Gitchee Gitchee Goo? Busted? You'd do the same thing.

That reminds me. I haven't watched their Star Wars special! Inconceivable.

Back to the blog!

I'm going to bring this blog back. Enough of using Facebook and other places for purposes they're not meant to be.

I'm starting with perhaps something boring to anyone but me. I started a new diet. It had what I was looking for: strict so I eat right, accountability with weigh ins, and results. I was disappointed the first week because I thought I had been good for nothing. I stood on that scale and braced myself to see 1 pound gone or nothing at all.

But I lost 10.6 pounds! I must have looked like the stereotype of stunned because I couldn't believe my eyes. When the woman confirmed it, I leapt off the scale and hugged her! She asked me what was the last digit and I stood back on the scale hoping it wouldn't change. It didn't!

It's given the willpower to go on!

I need to do this. I can't even look at myself in the mirror because it made me cry. Now I just need to stick with it. I know these remaining weeks will not be that much. They told me to expect 3 - 7 pounds a week which is still good, right?

John has told me how proud he is for me even doing this at all and my sister Gerry, who had been on this last year, has been so supportive.

Fingers crossed!
