Your Fired...

Hello BFC Friends,

I decided I was going to visit Maria in Vegas cause she said she is so lonely since my Dad died. I didn't know if it was going to be Sunday or Monday.

But on Saturday I fired the Gardener and hubby was all pissy at me cause he had to cut the grass now and he didn't want to.

You've seen my 2 dogs before and they are very sweet. Since last July when we moved in our new house Mandy the black one, didn't like the gardener too much. it was like the 2nd or 3rd week after we moved in and he was in the back using the weed eater, Mandy barked and ran at him and she actually bit him. Cause he was a stupid idiot and just stood there and let her. She never ever has done that to anyone.

Well anyway, We always have to wait around all the time now for him to show up on saturday's so I can keep the dogs in the house. Last week I told him that I can't keep waiting around all day anymore and he was going to have to come earlier so we can get on with our day. He said he would come at 7am. I said GREAT!

I waited all day and at 2pm I called him. He said Oh Sorry miss - I forgot to call, and I will come in the morning. So I told him NO. I will do it myself from now on and I can't keep waiting around for you every saturday.

So anyway - hubby got pissy mad at me and I decided to leave yesterday (Sunday) to visit Maria. I got here we were having a nice visit and Kattie my sister the one who got married in January, came over with her 2 dogs. Bad move!! You don't bring your dogs over to other people's house. Maria has 2 dogs and 1 of Kattie's was attacking 1 of Maria's. Well anyway Poor Bunchie's ear nearly got ripped off and Katie and Maria had to take her to the emergency dog hospital. So I was at the house alone and $250 later they got home around 11:30pm.

Now it is Monday morning and Maria and I plan to go visit Dad. She has not been to the cemetary since his burial. We are both looking forward to visiting him. I miss him.

BTW, I love the scale over here. It said I was 154.2 this morning. I need to steal this one cause I was 155.5 at home LOL.

Thanks for listening. Lots of Love and hugs. Please leave your comments and don't forget to visit all my friends blogs on the list below.

My thought for the day:

If we did all the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astonish ourselves.

Keep on BFC ' n :-)


  1. Hi Rosalie:
    I love your blog and check in everyday for a dose of motivation to keep me on track. I am a loyal BFC follower, but haven't quite achieved the success that you have. Carbs get me at times. I pretty much have the sugar under control. Anyway, I weigh 187 and my goal is 135.I hope help I will see this number someday. Your blog is a big help. Thanks and continued success!

  2. Your gardner was a turd making you wait around for him every saturday, good job firing him. I hope you have a nice visit with Maria and Kattie, sorry to hear about the doggie getting hurt.

  3. Good for you amd its amazing you just keep doing so well.Our two dogs do not get along together since we lost the female last year who was the alpha dog so now we have to put up with snot fights or keep them separated and thats what we do.I am having a good day thanks to you as I always have you in the back of my mind.

  4. Sounds like your husband is spoiled...lol I wish we had a gardner. Hope you enjoy your time in Vegas and I am sure Maria is glad to have you there. I know who lonely she must feel since your fathers passing. Have a safe trip back.

  5. I was watching Ceaser (Dog Whisperer), because when I walk my two little dogs these days I'm scared to death there's going to be a Pitt or a big dog running around without a leash or with a Jackass for an owner. Sure enough, I've seen plenty of them on my walks lately. I need to go to Ceaser's dog rehab compound in L.A.and overcome by dog fears. Seeing those dogs fight would have sent me over the edge. I'm glad you are visiting Maria, and giving her some company. Did you feel your Dad when you went to see him?

  6. Man that sucks about the gardener but that sounds like a trend. Most gardeners I know take too long. My grandmas grass man takes to long, and so did the one I use to have (when I had money, lol). Now we cut the grass ourselves too. Its a hassle though cause my hubby never has time much anymore.

    Maybe when you get home your scale will say they same thing. :) All scales are balanced a little different though. I always hate the scales at the doctor offices that say I weigh like 10 lbs more then I actually am. haha ugh!

Some tips if you are having trouble

  • First make sure that you are staying under the 15/6. 15 sugars and 6 servings of carbs for the whole day. Thats no more than 5 sugars and 2 servings of carbs per meal.
  • Track all of your sugar/carbs. Add everything from your meal together and count them that way.
  • Try to stop eating whole grain carbs after 3pm.
  • Make sure you drink lots of water.
  • Count everything that you put into your mouth. Even sauces - everything , check labels.
  • Make sure that you don't eat any artificial sugars. Check labels, if it says sugar free - look in the ingredients, look for....sucralose, aspartame, saccharine in the ingredients. Those are BAD!
  • Going #2 is a big problem when a lot of people start the BFC. I have solved that problem with Clear Benefiber in my morning coffee and a scoop of Super Seed w/water in the afternoon. (you can buy the super seed on Amazon.com it is the cheapest).
  • Choose your carbs wisely. Try to pick the carbs that will give you the lowest count of carbs, sugar and calories and the most fiber.

I hope this helps.
