chocolate chips, muscles and a big old goose egg
The details of the Husband's job is looking much better. The union dues are reasonable and there is no initiation fee. We will have to wait 6 mos to qualify for the benefits but he has the VA and I have DOD Tri Care so its not a big emergency. However the once a month paycheck is still a go - we will get our first paycheck on Feb 1.

Bugs me though, that I am starting this food program and I have 2 bags of chocolate chips in my cupboard that is driving me crazy. But then on the other hand, my BMI is high and I am a heart attack waiting to happen. Decisions, decisions.

scary If you've been following me, you would know I am not that social of a person. I used to be a social butterfly at one time...
