    Trader Joe's has a reputation for being a great place to work. Notice how the employees always seems pretty happy - I even thought about working there a few years ago, maybe trying for their management program. At the time my plantar fascitis was so bad that I knew I would never make it through a day. Now I could do it, no problem! But I have a good job and no TJ around here. Also, the competition for those jobs was intense, with MBAs standing in line for them here in job-scarce Maine.

    Sabine, it sounds like you have a very good grip on how to handle this. And hurray for encouraging interviews. And on to the next ones...

    Fantabulous!

    Just heated up some of my original batch of sauerkraut, which had gotten shoved to the back of the fridge. I put it up on July 14th, so it is two months old. Wow, what great tanginess! I need to make some more at once, so that I will have this available at Thanksgiving. (Not that Thanksgiving has ever been a big sauerkraut season for me, but this is fine stuff.)

    Oh really

    Two more days for my Honey's job, and today they decide they want a meeting to go over ways to make the duties possible for the replacement. As if they can magically pull something out that will reduce the load to what he can do. Not going to happen. And how pathetic to do it two days beforehand.

    I so wish I could see what will be happening there after my Honey leaves. The worse part of my nature is hoping for a major meltdown. There was an issue over the weekend (can't remember if I mentioned it) and it took them two days to get over the effects of that. Hard luck on the workers, but I can't help but feel that it serves the company right!

    The eating is getting out of control again. Every night I am going to bed saying I will do better, and every morning I get up to the same old drill. It does not help that I feel unable to shop freely. We are eating out of the freezer and pantry, and it is just not riveting. I did get an avocado today, to have with my eggs tomorrow. Avocados are lovely.

    My Santa hat is almost done. I am really pleased that I will have it ready BEFORE Christmas.

    Skipping the gym tonight. Honey could see I wasn't wanting to go, so he gave me a pass. My normal routine is to lift weights, then walk, then weights, then walk... Well, there's nothing but thinking time during the walking, and I am trying to avoid that. Thinking brings me down. So when I am done griping to y'all I am putting 'Lord of the Rings' into the DVD player, and zoning out. (This is why my hat is almost done! Lots of knitting can happen while you are actively not thinking!)

    "Lord of the Rings" is an excellent choice for escaping reality! Love those movies!

    Lord of the Rings and knitting sounds like a combo I could go for! Maybe every time you want another something to eat think, " Just two more rows and then I'll see if I need something..." I know though, that when I get going it can be hard to stop. You need something to draw a line in the sand over and get a fresh start. Make some kind of excuse for refocusing - course this is from the mouth of one who has a hard time doing this sometimes (often!)

    I watched the movie with one of the commentaries on, choosing the design team. Very interesting to learn how different choices about costumes and the set are made, and quirky little details. It amazes me that movies don't cost even more than they do, when you hear what goes into them.

    Then I staggered over to pick Littlest up from her church thing, after dozing on the sofa. I have NOT been getting enough sleep lately, due to staying up until I am exhausted so that I will fall right asleep with NO THINKING. I think I need to find a new strategy. Maybe I should listen to a meditation tape at night, instead. Okay, I'm going to try that tonight.

    I prayed (as I usually do, that came out a little funny, as if it were a special occasion ) last night for a good day eating-wise today. For my part of it, I made a pitcher of electrolyte water when I got up, and am slugging it own, trying to get off to a good start. I will have a breakfast of eggs with avocado and salsa, a bratwurst, and a generous side of greens.

    Hi Sabine. Checking in. I am kind of the same way. When I feel burned, I look forward to Karma kicking some tail in return. It would be very interesting to be a fly on the wall at the old place when they start up after DH's departure. May Karma pay them back.

    Sugar withdrawal headache starting.

    Knowing it serves me right does not help.

    Not even one little bit.

    Hang in there, Sabine. And kudos to you for working on the things that are within your power. Do remember that stress makes weight loss very difficult, so don't judge your success on pounds. Eating clean, holding the line or losing very slowly: those are major victories at a time like this, and you should rejoice in them as such.

    I'm afraid I can't watch the LotR DVDs anymore. Well, maybe the first one. I'm one of those annoying dedicated fans of the books, and the reworking of some major characters irritates me to the point I can't watch it. I loved those guys the way they were... But when I was pregnant I would knit or crochet to keep myself sitting, and afterwards I would read through all three books for the same purpose (you can read while nursing). I haven't read them again in years now. I think the last time was just before the movies came out. I have such a huge stack of reading waiting for me that it will probably take another few years.
