BREAKFAST HOT-WINGS, Miss Michelin and Daddy killed the Easter Bunny!

Have you ever eaten something and then immediately after, while the taste is still in your mouth... wondered 'what was I thinking!?' I just ate a bunch of breakfast hot-wings.... What are breakfast hot-wings? Well, they're leftovers from last night's supper, and they look so good but you know if you wait til later someone else will scarf them up before you do... so you eat them for breakfast!  I scarfed up a few of those hot-wings, and then I sat here (yes, I ate them at the computer!) and wondered... 'what was I thinking?'  Oh well, the damage is already done, I may as well finish them off!

Today is my last day at work.  I think they hate me there at the store... they originally scheduled me to work until 11pm.  Come on people, this is my last day!  I convinced them to start me earlier, so now I get off at 7... but I'm about 1/2 hour over my scheduled hours so I might be able to sneak out at around 6:30.  That would be nice.  Of course them giving me my regular day shift would have been even nicer... but I'll take what I get I suppose.  After all, this is the last time!  (man, I'm going to miss that paycheck!)  6 years I've been there, 2 years as a supervisor.  My husband asked if they were throwing a party for me... Hah!  They probably are... TOMORROW!  I'll be honest... I have NO IDEA what my management team thinks of me, and my store manager hasn't said a word to me about my leaving... so I'm thinking they might be thinking its a good move!  Well, yes, in my eyes it is.  Still, it would have been nice to be missed... to be missed so bad that the store just falls apart without me!  Hahahaha!  Okay, I wasn't THAT good of an employee, but I pulled my weight.

Ugh... and that brings me to my new mission... my weight.  No, I'm not going to go on a diet... I enjoy my breakfast hot-wings too much.  I am going to start exercising more.... I'll start out slow, maybe 5 minutes a week... and work up to a full on routine, but baby steps in the beginning.  I just want to get rid of my Miss Michelin physique, you know, take off a couple of those spare tires around my waist... heck, I would just like to be able to identify my waist!  I have a couple there, I just don't know which one is myTRUE waist!  I also want to get rid of those flaccid bi-ceps of mine that have slipped done and under my arms, time to tone those things up.  And finally, as nice as 'excess' can be in some instances, excess chins chins are not on my list of favorite physical traits, so I'd like to trade in 2 of my chins for the one I had when I was a teenager.  I'm sure its under there.... somewhere.  Boy, have I got my work cut out for me!

Easter is this Sunday, I'm not ready.  My kids are older... my baby is 10, so why am I still stuffing Easter baskets?  Oh yeah... because its fun!  I can't believe the some of things I see people buying at the store to stuff in their kids Easter baskets ... DVD's, cd's, video games... oh my gosh, this is Easter, not Christmas!  What ever happened to colored eggs, jellybeans, a coloring book, and a little something to represent the real meaning behind Easter?  I still do the kids Easter baskets like that... plus a stuffed critter... but thats about it.  The kids don't mind and they don't fuss when their friends come out to play on their brand new Easter scooters, showing off their Easter video games.  And later, when those kids go inside to eat their Easter pizza, my kids gather around our table to eat their Easter bunny!  (hehehehe!  read 'Daddy killed the Easter Bunny' here).

I would hope they'd through you a big party. I'm sure you will be missed. I know if I worked with you , Id bake you a cake and wish you well. Heck, I'd send you a cake now , but haven't figured out how to put one in the hard drive and e-mail it . LOL.
Yep, people have went a little crazy on the Easter basket thing. That's just to much. I agree , it should be just what you said.
Have a great last day at work.
Hugs, R.C.
