      • Lunch: egg batttered chile rellenos with iceberg and tomato salad.
        Dinner: heh.... I was prepping chocolate chip cookies, almond shortbread, and valentino brownies (all primal, thankyouverymuch. Added a little honey to the chocochip cookies) for tomorrow (boss's last day.) I was sampling batters, licking spoons, and "cleaning" bowls. Call it 2 chocochip cookie, minimal brownie (unfortunately), and 2 shortbread cookies. Waiting for it all to cool so I can pack it all up.
        1) No more wheat. Point blank, the end, do not pass go. yep.
        2) Eat more veggies. At least 30 g carbs, preferably 50 g carbs per day.
        34 g
        3) Sprint at least once a week and PBF as per e-book and WOW.
        Nah. I don't count the (kinda sorta) run in heels across the HEB parking lot
        4) Fight inflammation. This includes:
        A) Getting O3 : O 6 levels to at least 1: 4, preferably 1:1
        1:2, 1 tsp fish oil
        B) Watching and mediating stress. No more stress puppying.
        Mostly. My grandmother's getting worse, so that's kinda ragging on me, but did good other than that.
        5) Sleep at least 6.5 hrs per night, preferably 8 or more.
        6 hrs

        Something kinda funny happened at lunch today. We were having a luncheon for boss's going away. During the part of the meal that people were getting up and saying stuff, boss's boss gets up. (He's made it painfully obvious that he hates her more than he hates me. In a way, getting rid of me was him telling her to fuck off.) Rather than saying "We'll miss you" or anything to that effect, he takes one last jab at her: "You know what the difference between an accountant and an engineer is? An accountant knows they aren't an engineer." Mind you, this woman has kept our department financially stable and solvent for the past 15 years, in addition to her engineering duties; a job this asshat will never take on. My response (given that I don't particularly give two shits about what he thinks): saying, rather loudly "Low blow," and standing up after him to say "[Boss,]Thank you. For everything. From all of us." After the luncheon was over and boss and I were talking outside, I mentioned how I was surprised asshat bought her lunch (customary for boss to buy a leaving employees lunch at one of those shindigs.) Her response was priceless: "He didn't buy it. I wouldn't have let him. [Coworker she's dating] did."

        • YAY for standing up to asshats.
          Sounds like they deserve what they're going to get when you and YOUR boss are gone.
          F**k 'em!!!

          • I dunno that that qualifies as standing up to him, more as a "Nyahnyahnyah nyah Phthbbbbt" move.

              • In light of Manda's post, here is our home, in it's usual semi- clean status:
                The kitchen:

                The living room

                Yes, that's a huge dry- erase board on the (unshown, D'oh!) wall. Yes, that's a wedding gown hanging from the bookcase, no, it's not the one I wore. The piles of clothing are stuff to give away and stuff to repair.

                More to come---->

                  Yes, we write reminders on the mirror with dry erase marker. Shaddup, it works.

                  The bed never gets made. It'd be a lie if it was.

                  I just realized how many bookshelves we have in this house, and how they're all nearly jammed full. I had no idea we had that many books.

                      • WOW.

                        That's incredible. When you get tired of that, I'll send you the badger song again ;-)
