|They are "Bongo" size 9 1/2 (a full size larger than I normally wear) and I got them for $8. Not sure why they run so small. I tried a 9 and could barely get my foot into it.|

Work has been bad lately. I hear through the grapevine that due to our department being unable to keep up with demand, that they are considering letting us all go. At this point, I throw up my hands and say, "let it be." I work so very, very hard. I work late, I work through lunch, I work at night. I'm not willing to give up any more of my precious time; to be a mom, a friend, and to work at church. So if it happens, it happens. I will do my best until I find out I'm being let go. I am applying to other jobs, but I just keep hearing nothing. I have complete and utter peace about it, though. I think I'm so exhausted that for the first several weeks, I'd probably sleep during the day.
Atkins is going well, although the weight loss itself has slowed. I'm still down 12 lbs, which is how much I was down last week. I went up two pounds, and then lost two pounds. I was on my cycle last week which I guess is why that happened. I also had no menstrual cramps or aches whatsoever! My blood sugar is still excellent, too. Even though the scale showed nothing this week, I feel good and I'm going to continue. We went to the movies last night, and I didn't cheat even then; I had no soda, candy or popcorn. Now I need to step up the exercise a bit, too.
Last but not least: Who wants to work when this sweetie wants your attention, anyway?
