Simple the (*%)(&*$ do those of you working find time to come here and post/read during the week?


Ok....sorry...I am just having saving advice withdrawals so I am a little on edge

Seriously, I LOVE MY NEW JOB. I am staying incredibly busy learning and playing catch up on the duties all at the same time. My boss is awesome and the rest of the staff has been extremely friendly welcoming me back. Life is good.

I did buy lunch two days last week. The first time- I got up, showered, dressed and was about to head down to make my lunch when I looked in the my clothes LOOKED 2-3 sizes too big (down side to weight loss I guess) I had to find something else to wear...ugh. Only problem was, most of my choices were plus size as I had decided to only buy a few pieces to add to my old wardrobe until that size 12 was reality....Um, now I need to go buy at least a couple of blazers to tide me over...please let me find a sale!

I know long story I said I ended up having to change and didnt have time to make lunch...

Guys...a sandwich at the local bakery...$8.75!!!! Gulp.... at least I was able to eat half and have lunch again the next day making two meals out of it... but even $4 for a sandwich, when I can make one for under $.50 is ridiculous!

But week two I will be better prepared and have lunch made the night before.

As I sit here typing this entry, Im wondering how the heck everyone is... and i hope I can at least read a few of the posts...Id forgotten how easily weekends become all about laundry, housework, grocery shopping and family catch up...long to-do list today.

Ok- any and all ideas, tips and suggestions welcome for simplifying the work life process...

In the meantime~ Hugs and good thoughts your way!!

    I find it hard to find time to post very often (plus when I'm not working, my girls are home too - stiff competition for the computer!)

    I'm glad your first week went well, and wish you luck at the store (you have to admit it's a happy reason to have to go shopping!) Best wishes on your second week!

    We have missed you too. I am lucky that I don't work, so i can spend a lot of time reading what everyone has been doing. It is great that you love your job and are getting so skinny!!

    Congrats. My secrets:
    As I walk home, I think about the day and what to write about in my blog. It only has to be a couple of paragraphs and it doesn't have to be perfect.
    In the blogs, I notice that there are two types - the writers and the readers. If you write often, you usually don't comment lots or read every blog. If you read and comment often, you blog intermittently.

    I agree with Baselle! I go back and forth being a contributor and being a lurker/cheerleader!
    I try to do as many chores/errands as I can at odd times, on lunch, after work and even before work! And I try to use the computer to do as many things as possible too!
    Are you able to go on your computer at work for personal things, like email and taking a peek at the blogs? My work does'nt mind, so although I don't usually blog, I do read what everyone is doing.
    I make the girls make their lunches for the week, filling a bag with a drink, sweet, fruit and chip (sans sandwich), then the night before I just throw a sandwich in for them and put it in the fridge. A real time saver!
    Sometimes you have to pay a little more for convenience, but come on, don't beat yourself up when it happens! Sometimes you have to pull a rabbit out of a hat and it just may cost a little more, but to save sanity its worth it! Thats why we save on the little things, so we can have our emergency money!
    I can't wait till you get your first full paycheck! Have you decided what you are going to do? Does your money have a plan of where it is going to go?
    I am happy you are happy! :-) You go friend!

    Hehe. I mostly post when I'm at work and things are slow.

    As for reading, I subscribe to all the blogs via RSS reader that way I know which ones I've read and can skim past the ones I don't feel like reading. Smile

    I don't know if you have a fridge or microwave at work, but I keep a dish of homemade soup or a cheap frozen entree in the freezer at my job for those days when I just don't have time or leftovers to bring. It's saved me a few times from ordering out.
    I try to check the blogs at night, but I've been having less and less time to do it. Mostly I end up catching up in one long session once a week or so.
