The scale is being very, very generous.  I hope these numbers are true.  When I got home I did step on it but I noticed it was a bit askew.  So I hope after adjusting it that it hasn't been lying to me these last few days.  I am really shocked to see another drop.  After today though, there may be a gain.  I did enjoy a bit of steak for BAB.  Later I snacked on some walnuts.  Around 11am, I drank what was left of my kefir smoothie.  Another department was having their payday potluck.  I always invite myself, LOL.  They had salpicon, charro beans, jalapeno poppers wrapped in bacon, pasta and potato salad.  I enjoyed a bit of salpicon, pork rinds and some jalapeno poppers. Those poppers were delish!!  They were obviously P3 friendly since it was just a halved jalapeno, stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped in bacon.  Salpicon is just brisket with different cuts of veggies and lime juice.  This one didn't have avocado which is traditional but it was omitted.  I had a dessert plate serving with all three items not a regular size plate.  I got out of work late again because technically my partner is out with an injury and I have to work alone which means I have to answer the window, answer the phones and answer the radio while trying to notarize every one's paperwork and take reports.  Of course all this happens at the same time!!  At least I have been able to submit for overtime these last couple of days so I'll see an extra 10 dollars in my paycheck in 2 weeks LOL. When I finally left, I was able to get to Kmart to buy my double stuffed Oreos since with my Rewards card I could get them for $2.38 each.  From there, I walked over to Albertson's and it was fairly empty of customers.  I got some more BBQ sauce because I found more coupons, some refried beans (yes I found my coupons) and some Rotel canned tomatoes and chile.  I also had a Monopoly instant winner coupon for a free package of Johnsonville Brats or Sausage. I grabbed a package of Cheddar brats because I couldn't find the right size stated on the coupon.  Anyway, I checked out and it wouldn't take the coupon, he checked it and told me I got the wrong one.  I explained to him that this was the only Johnsonville sausage they had and the rope sausage was only Hillshire Farms.  He gave me the cheddar ones free with my coupon.  So after paying, I came straight home.  I drove by a couple of houses and they still haven't picked up their Spanish papers.  So tomorrow morning, I will be visiting their driveways.  After I got home I realized I left the chicken thighs out overnight and all day, so I have to cook those today!!

I haven't been napping so I have been sleeping like a log.  Last night I went to bed and awoke a few minutes before the alarm.  Tomorrow will be no fun because my partner is out and he's the one that usually takes the Mexican pastries on Saturday, so no cheating tomorrow.  I'll have to save my cheat day for Sunday.

YAY, UPS just delivered my packages.  I forgot I ordered these items 2 days ago.  I'm enjoying my Amazon Prime Membership.  I just got lucky that a couple of items I ordered qualified.  Now I'm off to fry in the kitchen. Pun intended.
