Steelers have resigned James Harrison for two years. I mean, really? Must be awful thin at his position. Up-and-comer Jason Worilds retired to pursue a religious education. Oh, boy. Gonna need to score 40 points a game, they are, like last year, the way it looks.

The 49ers have effectively dismantled themselves - way to go, they just moved into a new stadium. Of course there are two very, very clueless people making decisions there (Jed York and his yes man). Kind of feel badly for that fan-base.

Try being a Dallas Cowboy fan from 1996-2013...

I like to go Sunday mornings and Sunday evenings.  I like to be there every time the doors are open if I can.  I'm old fashioned like that.  It's how I was brought up.

I am home from work for just a few minutes.  I stopped by and saw a good friend who was in the hospital and visited with this person for an hour and then came on home.  I will leave here in about 10 minutes to go to church.  It's been a while since I've been to church and I'm kind of dragging spiritually as a result.  I'm looking forward to it.

Work Day 3 is over!  Very good day!! I've got to run by and see someone in the hospital so be home later.

So I assume that last night was actually your third cheat meal of the week (since you didn't say anything about making your own dinner), thus exceeding your own generous quota for cheat meals?

And I assume that whatever you bought at the store was more unhealthy stuff like bagel bits, or whatever they're called?


I did go out and have Mexican food last night.  Nothing wrong with that.

I said I'm not going to go over my receipt.  There's no point other than to bash me over the head.  I did not get any Bagel Bites, though.

That bad, eh? 

Literally one page back I said the dipstick conundrum was just an excuse and you said Poppycock!  You do understand that after 22 seasons of Update you are entirely predictable, right? 

I can assure you there was a mixture of vegetables, fruit, meat, and pleasure food.  The most unhealthy thing I bought was donuts for this morning's breakfast.  The healthiest thing I bought were baby carrots and fresh mandarins.

It's just about time to head off to work for Day 3.  This should be a relatively easy day as I am neither opening nor closing.  It will likely be busy today as people want to get their food for the coming week, but it should be relatively easy.  I've only got 5 hours today to close out Week 1.

Good Sunday Morning!  I woke up at 0640, got a shower, ate breakfast, and watched Dr. Charles Stanley until 0800.  Since I can't go to church this morning, it was imperative that I get a worship service and hear from my God some how.  I will leave here at 0925 for work.  I will get off at 1500, and then have to go see a friend who is in the hospital up here, so it will be after 1600 before I get home.  If I'm not too tired, I would like to go to church tonight.  I will go to bed around 2300 tonight so I can be up by 0630 in the morning to go to the meat department orientation tomorrow from 0900-1200.



Well, your god certainly knows how to rock a leather jacket.  Swaggalicious. 

On a side note, why do so many preachers refer to themselves as "Dr."? 

First off, Dr. Stanley is not my God.  He's just a preacher.

Second, most preachers go to seminaries and get a Masters of Divinity (or M-Div) and then a Doctorate of Ministry.  They have Dr. in their title in much the same fashion as someone who gets a PhD or other doctorate at a graduate school.

What is Cruz selling? Just anger and fear. Is this the best that Texas do? Really scraping the bottle of the barrel with Cruz!😲

The State of Texas has nothing to do with it.  It's the fact that there appears to be no other Texans interested in running.  The nation was genuinely blessed with another Texan some years ago.

I imagine Cruz will probably announce an exploratory committee.  Although, as IceSpear pointed out, why wouldn't he wait just 9 days and he can avoid the first quarter reporting?

Everybody has been visiting Iowa, New Hampshire, and now Nevada.  Have there been any publicized visits to South Carolina or have they already conceded it to Lindsey Graham?

bushie hasnt been to a kiddie party lately.  hopefully the invites will start rolling in in the spring.

That's for 2 reasons.  1) The family I attend their kid's birthday parties are serving in Cameroon for 2015 and maybe 2016 and 2) I live 110 miles away from where they would be living if they were in the States.

What is the latest likely calendar for the primaries?  Since Florida has moved their primary back to March 15, what does that do for everyone else.  Is Iowa still in January or has it moved into February?

I work from 1000-1500 tomorrow and then I will immediately go into Work Night 4 as I will have orientation for the meat department at the Owasso store Monday from 0900-1200.  Tomorrow's shift is called a "mid-shift" as I will be there with those who open the store and will be there when those who close the store start their shift.  Work Days 1 and 2 were all about training to close the store.  My two shifts this coming Thursday and Palm Sunday will focus on opening the store.  This time, I will be at the Bixby store.  For those opening shifts, I will have to wake up by 0300-0315 which means I will have to go to bed around 2000 Wednesday and Saturday nights...

The health comments I can understand.  I don't understand the childish comments.

you went to see Fly Me To The Moon in the movie theater.

No, I did not.  I saw Journey to the Center of the Earth.
Funny you mention that...I have read the book form of Journey to the Center of the Earth.

Really?  Nice!  I honestly don't remember too much about the movie considering this was almost 7 years ago that I saw it (August 2008).

Anyway, I am home from Walmart.  I got the stuff I needed to get.  There's no need to go over the receipt on the forum, but I got the stuff I needed and I got a few more healthy items.  Now, I can sit back, watch basketball, relax, and get ready for Day 3 tomorrow and Week 2 starting Monday.

Bushie would have done so many amazing things today if only he hadn't had to waste 2 hours on a dipstick. He would have watched basketball on TV, knocked out a couple naps... just his whole day stolen from him!

Eh, it was alright.  Like I told HD, I have a list and a menu made out for the next four days and I am about to go shopping.  I'm going to grab a bite to eat and then go on to Walmart.  It's only 1610, so I should be home by 1830 and be able to relax and unwind.

As strange as it may seem, I feel better about myself when I don't take a nap and I tend to sleep better at night.

As irked as I was about having to spend 2 1/2 hours at the auto shop, I actually feel like I've been productive today knocking out two major things on my list.  Walmart will complete the trifecta.

There has been a little delay in the oil change.  My dipstick came apart and won't go back together.  So, they're having to run to a local dealership and get one.  He said they're only like $22 so it's not bad.  It'll just cost me more time.  I've been here for 2 hours already for a mere oil change...

Classic Bushie conundrum.  Let me guess...  now you'll have no time to possibly search for healthy food at Wal-Mart!  Gersh dernit!


Not exactly.  The laundry only took an hour and 45 minutes, so now I'm about to make a menu and grocery list and go shopping.  After that, I'll be able to relax and unwind for the evening and get ready for Day 3.

Why are you "maybe" buying fruit if you say you find them delicious?  Forget the veggies if you don't like them.  Get grapes, mangos, tangerines, apples, etc.

I've got green beans, English peas, baby carrots, bananas, and oranges on my list.  I've made a menu that will include the veggies for the first half of the week.  I will make a menu for the latter half of the week probably on Tuesday and do the appropriate shopping then.  I don't want to get ground beef now and have it go to waste by Thursday.  I'll use my ground beef (AKA hamburger meat) for Monday and Tuesday.

Work night 3 is underway, not that anybody cares...

We do... just be something close to normal about something for once.  Don't tell me for one second you look forward to this job.  It's boring.  You have to be on your feet.  It's manual labor.  This joyful glee about the meat job at the grocer is such a put-on.  Stop looking ahead to "moving up the ladder" and toil... and just admit you are doing this because things haven't worked out and you are making best. 

God damn we need opebo for this supermarket saga: (

I could tell you that, but then I'd be lying...
