Happy you enjoyed it!

Made Peanut Butter today - not very good for you but gee, I love it. It turned out fabulously - now not to eat it all at once, had it on my toast for breakfast, just 1 tablesppon. Nutrition and water - passed that one. Now for the laundry and clutter around the house after the weekend. I don't know how 2 people can make so much mess. Looking forward to having a day to myself tomorrow.

Okay, I tried a taco seasoning mix recipe, which my husband likes, but I want to try the taco bell copy cat recipe I found later, lol.

And as for Personal Care Day, lol. I did get dressed this morning and brushed my hair. The rest of me just wanted to sit and be lazy. Maybe I'll spruce up a little before bed to tease my DH.

Okay, since I have been MIA for so long, I will just jot down what off of Dictatorship week I have been accomplishing:
1. Clothes Watch: My husband has taken over the job of the laundry, and has done a FABULOUS job...he has also blessed others by cleaning out his own clothes (and I almost had a heart attack when he did it!) Also, I finally took the time to put away all my laundry that he so nicely cleaned all week long!

2. Food watch...ummmmm....don't ask....I'm making food for next week today, it will be better this next week!

3. Surface watch...kay, this area was attempting to break up my marriage, so my husband finally cleaned up his 'piles' from all over the house and Sarah and I worked to put her toys away. Now, I just have the kitchen left, which is my big project today!

4. Exercise watch...have been increasing my pedometer steps rapidly due to chasing around 5 and 6 year olds in my kindergarten class...next week my goal is to walk away from work as well

5. Floors...yes, they are disgusting...but they did not get put on the agenda this week or today emoticon

6. I made tomato soup with my mom yesterday...haven't had any since we ran out of last year's cans in February...now we're stocked back up on the yummy soup! Also, trying a couple new dishes today for our week's meals.

7. I am aware it is after noon, but my next stop is to the bathroom to make myself look less scary

Okay, so now that we have our broken items fixed or replaced and work has settled down, my master's degree program starts tomorrow!! My husband and I worked hard to come up with a routine to help us both out so we can get some stuff done and still have our sanity. I'm back online so I will start posting regularly again, hooray, I've missed it here!!

Happy Sunday and have a great week, everyone!!

So far, I've done exercise, given myself a much needed manicure, thoroughly moisturized after showering and watched a movie. The day is going well, as Jenye says it is just the weather for curling up as it is freezing here.

Well here I am again, trying to play catch-up with my posts. Surfaces day went well. Getting ready for DS's party made this a necessity anyway. And by the way this is probably the first time in 6 months that all the livingroom, diningroom, and kitchen surfaces were empty at the same time, lol.

Exercise watch day, lol. What can I say...... I cut grass for about 20 minutes, till it started to rain, so only about half done with the back yard. DH had cut everything else.

Floor watch day, TODAY, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAh.....
I guess I can sit and watch them piled high with game consols, computers, pillows, blankets, power cords, lan lines, surge protectors and extra bodies. Maybe later tonight I will see some progress there, but I'm afraid the dictator will catch me this time for sure.

Nutrition page - yes, water - OK, surfaces - ummmm - not a good day, the dictator was watching out of the corner of her eye. Now for the exercises - not a very good day as it is Grand Final Day of our football - but I will try.

jari, can you make something to make appear as if I cleaned surfaces today? the thing is I filled my exercise quota for the day- but that's tomorrow's watch, and wasn't home all day today so I will do the surfaces tomorrow. Can you make the days swap in the Dictator's System?
I would grately appreaciate it!

Yesterday - done. Today - hmmm, well it's another slow start so I hope I can get the engine going some time today.

Tomorrow's Grand Final day here in Victoria so it's a family BBQ, the dictator couldn't have picked a better day.

Not a good day to track food! Wed am is my study at church. Then all the ladies bring scrumptious dishes to try. I usually only taste a corner of each. But about a corner of 10 dishes! I think I want a "do over".

Okay Mr/Ms Dictator, no heads to lob off here. I always track all my foods, and today is no different. I've already gotten 2 veggies, 1 fruit, and 6 cups of water. It's only 2pm, and I still have 990+ calories to try to eat today, so portion sizes were fine so far, and I'm cooking dinner so they shouldn't be a problem tonight. (Garlic-Lime Chicken, creamy garlic shells, brussel sprouts, and 1/2c strawberries for desert. Total calorie count right at 550 including desert, ha.) So Mr Dictator, you must look somewhere else tonight, because this little(?) girl is passing this test, lol.

Oh my! I'm grateful the Nutrition Watch didn't happen yesterday! Having a hungry 13 yo at home and no routines doesn't help at all! I totally overate yesterday. But I did 3 loads of laundry and al put away so I'm safe!

So today Food Watch! I don't my head cut off or something!

I have been told the rebels have a man in the dictator's close circle of trusted people. We are closer to get rid of that pest! But shh, don't tell!

(thanks Sarah, I do my best. Hope you feel fine today!)

Are those eyes I can feel watching me ?? Thank goodness I have behaved today (and most days). I have filled in my nutrition page, had 5 glasses of plain water - and after yesterday I have had small portions (not 100% yesterday). Is that all I have to report - yes I think so. emoticon

Well, yesterday I was in teenage rebellion mode and didn't want to do anything. The dictator will have me hauled off for sure. I finally did attack the laundry, and I only have one load left to fold and put away, and a bit of ironing that I didn't finish yesterday.

I don't track my food, and haven't for years, so I'll be caught on that one for sure. And since yesterday was an I'm-not-doing-whatever-anybody-in-authorit
y-tells-me day, I mostly ate frozen grapes and stuffed grape leaves and hommus. So there.

Today I have my plasma exchange treatment, so I'll be out of it all afternoon and evening. We'll see how I feel tomorrow. Sometimes I'm fine, and sometimes it takes me another day to recover.

Maybe the dictator will forget about me for a day?

If not now, when?

emoticon I always fill in my nutrition page, well, almost always. I've had three glasses of water, real water with nothing added, already but what was that last thing? Hmmm! It's our day for lunch at the club and well the serving of pasta was a little larger than usual and I honestly didn't mean to eat it all, but you know how it is, it just slipped into my mouth and then it was gone. Oh, and who ordered that carrot cake with cream. I'm afraid that disappeared as well. That angel ring slipped a bit. emoticon

Well I usually wash one load a day on MY days, but dd was behind and she worked hard to catch up. I am was careful with my food today. But right now I am doing the nosy neighbor thing. And I can see why she is talking about me so badly.

Gotta get to those surfaces!

Okay, laundry all caught up, all the way to being put away. Bags of clothes to give away are in my trunk, as yesterday I finally made it to the library and dropped off all those books that were residing there, lol. Have finally finished moving DS's clothes from his old room to his new one, and all I have left is to find a new home for my tablecloths that are still on top of my dryer. That may take a while, but since they aren't "clothes", I'm just going to include them with DAY 3, lol.

And by the way, this challenge couldn't have had better timing, thanks Katty.

I am not sure you'll like this challenge. I turned a tyrant and decided I'd better watch you closely!
So, starting now

DAY 1- Clothes Watch.
I'm going to check all yur clothes are taken care of. Is there laundry to do that has not been done? Is there clothes to fold and put away that is still lingering somewhere other than it belongs? Is there clothes to mend? Is there clothes to bless somebody else with? You better care of that!

Day 2- Food Watch
Did you track your food? Did you have at least one fruit and one veggie today? Did you have at least 2 glasses of water?- and I don't mean tea, coffee or other but plain water! Making sure your potrtions aren't huge? I'm watching you!

Day 3- Surfaces Watch
I'll see whether the main surfaces in your home are decluttered. I don't want to see any tables covered in papers and bits and odds so one can't see the table! Those kitchen counters have to be clear too! And I'll pay a quick visit to your bedrroms and see the nighstands condition!

Day 4- Exercise Watch
We can't have slow soldiers! We can't have lazy soldiers! WI'll see all of you increase your exercise by 10 minutes today! I'll see you sweat!

Day 5- Floors Watch
Those floors are disgusting! I want them clean today!

Day 6- Cooks Watch
The troops are bored with the same stuff over and over again! We want something new! Try a new recipe today, that's an order! i don't mind if it is a new spread over your toast, it must be new!

Day 7- Personal Care Watch
The troops must look good. Put on lotion, makeup,perfume,do your nails, take a shower, do your hair!


Rebels here: we are trying to take this tyrant out of the way, but meanwhile people, try to do as much as you can to keep the dictator happy. We believe by the end of the week w'll have it terminated- and you know what we mean by terminated. Keep the spirits high!
