Calm before the storm?

So conversation with Dad was quite normal, we talk again tonight. I'm always waiting for the other shoe to drop with him. He can let things go and then out of nowhere they'll be brought up again. Sometimes he just lets it go and never mentions it again.

Oh well, I'll just have to wait and see.

The fates are conspiring against me in terms of weighing in this week. I was going to go Thursday night and then my city was covered in freezing rain and wet snow on top. If you listened closely you could here the "WEEEEE" of people slipping on the ice. I decided to just go straight home after work instead due to the irratic bus service in this type of weather.
I also considered going Thursday at lunch but then had a meeting that went late and I missed it. Then I was going to go today at lunch and forgot my weigh in book at home.
I'll just have to surrender two coupons next Saturday.

The trouble is now that I know I'm not weighing in this week...I really want a danish. I know I could have a danish and adjust my lunch and dinner accordingly but I don't know if this danish will lead me down a dangerous path. The power of pastry I tell ya.

I'm also finding it difficult to workout this week with the verstunken weather. The ice kills the opportunities to walk outside (I don't want to hurt myself before Hawaii). By the time I get home I don't even want to think about it. I think I need to leave workout clothes in the foyer.

All the christmas flyers are walking my fingers want to open the wallet. Got the Sephora catalogue yesterday and they had this makeup palette with 64 eyeshadows and etc. The desire to purchase was high, but I know that these things never work. 1-No one needs 64 eyeshadows, 2-the odds of all the colours actually working for you...minimal. I have to keep chanting 4 weeks until Hawaii.

I actually felt Christmas spiritish the other day. Now this is unnatural for me. I spent more than a decade in retail, in a store that did 50% of it's sales during Christmas. Christmas was war for me, get the troops and supplies ready. Get ready to deal with really grumpy people.
Now I've been out of retail for about 3.5 years now and it's just now that I feel Christmas like. Very, very weird especially because it's only the beginning of November. I've always been a strong believer that nothing Christmas like should be in a store until after today. Not the day after Halloween or 3 weeks before Halloween. I'll have to keep an eye on this.

Have a great day everybody!

Step away from the danish, lol!:-)

And glad to hear that your conversation with your dad went okay. That's what I'm like with my mom these days, so I can relate. I always get very stressed out when I know I have to speak to her about something...

1 month until Hawaii!!!!
