So the drama begins. I got a call from the company that is willing to purchase the mobile home from me and she wanted to know what I had decided. I explained to her that I was still awaiting a call from the property owner to advise them of the situation. She asked if it was okay to move it and set an appointment to have it moved on Wednesday, that is pretty darn quick. I went by to check on the mobile home after work and saw people moving in, I thought WTF!! I spoke to the woman and she said she had signed a contract with someone to rent the home for six months, again WTF!! I explained to her that the home was mine and that no one has contacted me regarding payments or anything and if she could contact whoever it was she signed with to give me a call. She was a bit upset, not at me, but at the situation and I did apologize for the fact that she's caught in the middle of it. I called the company and explained what was going on and she said it didn't matter, she was still going to move it with or without them in it. I thought, "Okay!!". I got home and made dinner and later I get a phone call from my absent renters/buyers, mad as hell because I'm taking the home away. I explained that I hadn't received payment now for 3 months and I hadn't heard from them, so what was I suppose to think, they were going to keep paying? He kept repeating the same thing over and over and I finally got fed up with it and told him if he wanted to settle this in court, we would and hung up. I called my father to apprise him of the situation and he didn't sound too happy but is anxious to get rid of the mobile home as well. The absent renter/buyer continued to call me but I just sent his phone calls to voicemail. So the battle begins. God helped me in my situation but he's not making it easy though. I really need that bottle of wine now. I am starting to stress eat, just to have something to chomp on to relieve the stress, so another reason for the stall.

I really hate the day after a holiday when alcohol is usually involved. I mean since I have to drive so early in the morning to work, I always end up seeing some moron whose driving intoxicated or has wrecked their vehicle because they are stupid. It scares me to drive you just never know who's driving to work or driving incapacitated back home etc. I've seen some pretty strange things driving to work in the wee hours of the morn', but I made it work today, pheeeew!!!

Yesterday's Menu:
B: 12 oz. coffee w/Mocha Mix & Spenda, 2-12 oz. black coffee w/1 blueberry cake donut
L: South Beach Living Garlic & Herb Chicken w/green beans almondine, 4 starbursts
D: 1 NSA fudge bar, 1 SF toffee square, 1 tilapia fillet fried in coconut oil, 1 c. wulong tea

Jennay, yes, those blogs have some amazing recipes. That story was one for the books, or at least my book. I wasn't having any problems using to coconut oil last week so I think its the mindless eating of the Starbursts thats getting me. These winds are driving me nuts!!! I need that bottle of wine today, tomorrow and the rest of the week or at least until this mobile home drama is over and it doesn't look like it will be soon either, pray for me!!!

Hi Mary, Just checking in to catch up on all your drama. Sorry to hear about the problems with the daughter and the mobile home. Sounds like your daughter has called a truce and the mobile home battle is heating up!
Don't let it all go to your hips though! Keep on with the program so that you don't have one more problem to add to the stress level.
Hope things settle down soon!

Hi Mary!

Caught your comment on Cleo's Lo-Carb Blog and wanted to catch your blog, too!

I generally sign mine "Diane Eats the Elephant" because that's how I lost weight last year.

After regaining!

So many things come into play, don't you think?

I can't remember if you told Cleo you exercise yet or not, but I noticed you ate a DONUT - i think that may have had about 50 more carbs than the starburst (gee, who knew starburst could be so good for you? Well, I did, but the sugar is addictive for me, so sometimes I have to make sure I don't overdo it (there's no warning to that, unlike alcohol where you start acting stupid first ;)) - it makes me crave more sugar and more carbs!!! Eventually I catch on, but by then I am in full-overdose mode: tired, craving sweets/pasta, and wondering why the rain won't stop...

Stop on by if you get a chance! I'd love to show you around my blogosphere! In the meantime, keep reaching for the stars and remember to eat the elephant one bite at a time! (I love that Cleo has started "over" with her weight loss!)
