Hayes and Ways

I'm posting later then usual because I had a big project to finish at work. We are having our End of Year Banquet and I was typing up place cards. We have over 500 employees but only like 350 are coming. It is in the same location as last year (since 2005 actually) Since I work in the Region office, we have to be there to represent. I ordered the Vegetarian option which is Portobello, Eggplant and Tomato. I'm hoping that it doesn't go for too long with speeches etc. Last year it wasn't over until almost 11:00 p.m. I am usually in bed by 9:30 p.m. so it is a stretch.  Here is a picture of the venue. It is called Dolce Hayes Mansion

Our event is held in the building on the left. Cocktails are not served but they have a reception from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and then dinner starts at 7:00 p.m. I usually pass on going to the reception and just go to the dinner.

Tonight I am going to shop for an outfit to wear. Every year my mom has bought me the outfit since my birthday is in June.  When we have our Holiday Party she gets me one too. This year, she won't be shopping with me but she is still buying it for me. How sweet huh?

I have been snacking at night and it has to stop. A way to remind me was to write it on my white board which is on the way to the kitchen. I was heading to the kitchen last night, saw my note and looked at the clock and forbid myself from having one since it was past 8:00 p.m. I survived it and I feel much better in the morning when I don't eat late.

Dave got word yesterday that his surgery is scheduled for next Tuesday the 22nd. They need a specialist there to oversee the procedure. He will be getting Disability and may even get retroactive funds. I asked him if he got the retro pay to pay for my plane ticket to Fitbloggin'12 and he said he would. I told him since I have listened to him complain about pain all this time (7 years)  that I deserve it bwahahahaha... If you took one look at him, you would know he was in pain. It is that obvious. Until next time...


  1. I'd just look at that memo board and think "you can't tell me what to do" - but then, I'm ornery like that. ;) Glad it's working for you! And that is very sweet of your mom to still buy your outfit - looking forward to seeing what you choose!

  2. Sometimes with the snacking you just have to gut it out - and a reminder always helps :)

    Hope you got a photo of your new outfit, I'd love to see it!


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
