    Aww, thanks. I needed that this morning LOL. Sometimes I think I'm just bat-shit crazy to even try to do my dissertation, but somehow the important stuff always gets done - mostly because I have an amazing supportive husband! hopefully I can finish this year!

    Friday, January 6

    TGIF!

    Weight - 183.6
    Sleep -11-6:30, but not quality Again. sigh. Hopefully I can catch up a bit on the weekend!

    Menu plan:
    2 cups coffee
    peanut butter on celery
    taco meat w/melted cheddar and sour cream
    Edit: gonna make the beef stew because we need to cook up that meat today


    Exercise: I'm feeling like I'm fighting off a cold - congested, itchy eyes, runny nose, no energy. So today is going to be another "lots of slow movement" day.

    Schedule:
    Up at 6:30 (oops)
    Work 8:00-1:00 -I've been working 9 hr days so I can leave early today Goals: research quantitative proteomics, meeting at 10, work on project
    Chores: take boys to Target for birthday gifts for tomorrow, do CVS shopping trip because I have $11 in coupons that expire tomorrow, go to grocery for meatza supplies, finish taking decorations and lights off Xmas tree so it can be picked up tomorrow.

    Mood: tired, grumpy, whiff of PMS. hopefully once I get caught up in work tasks I'll get my head on straight

    Hi Mikki, thanks for stopping by my journal and commenting. It was encouraging. You mentioned PUTA (or something like that) in salad dressing. What is that?

    Keep on rockn'

    Dave

    Hi Dave! PUFA's - polyunsaturated fatty acids - basically all the vegetables oils that we've been told are the 'best' for all these years... are Death on Wheels!! almost all commercial salad dressings are made with them - canola, soybean, etc. they are extremely inflammatory, so it's better to make your own dressings. I'm busy/lazy (take your pick ), so I use a seasoning packet instead of mixing my own seasonings. If you go for a packet, get a name brand because the all the store brands I've looked at have MSG and other assorted chemicals.

    Hah, not today i'm not. Let's see... severe internet outages at work so I didn't get to work on my project ... talked the boys into re-gifting some things they had gotten and never opened, so we don't have to go to the store, decided to make beef stew out of meat that had to be cooked today, so avoided ALL the store trips. It's not even 4:00 and I'm in my sweatpants, letting the crockpot do all the work, and trying to talk myself out of glass of harvest wine LOL.

    I REALLY need to read through my manurscript critically and make a list of what still needs to be done while I wait for my director's edits. Hopefully it is close because he wanted it submitted a month ago!! It's going to be a significant portion of my dissertation and I'd like to get it submitted so I can actually start writing chapters - we've been hoping I could be done in June but that is coming up FAST!!

    Well, it is naughty in Spanish I understand about crazy. When I got pregnant with my 4yr old I decided to finally go back to school to finish my Bachelor's. Right when I went back full time I got pregnant with my 2yr old. He was born 1 week before the fall semester started, and I was in class that first day. It has been a hectic crazy nightmare trying to get though school; I should have been done last summer, but some stuff happened... anyway I should finally be done this May with 4 teaching certifications. I can't wait to be done and finally have a job again.
