Lower Points Plus in 2012

Well, actually they kicked in this week.  I now only have 26 points instead of 29.  Our leader told us a little about the new points on Monday, but will be explaining it in more detail at our next meeting.  I don't know if it's going to make that much of a difference or not.  Many times I wasn't eating all my points anyway, so maybe now I will.  I am definitely eating less now that I'm working.  No more time to snack.

Speaking of work... I still like it.  I am always busy.  I can't believe what slobs some people are.  The other day there were 10 boxes of shoes sitting on the bench waiting for me to put them away.  The sad thing is the place they belonged was right next to the bench.  I am constantly closing open boxes and putting one shoe back in boxes with their mates.  I can understand people putting the size 10 on top of the stack instead of putting it at the bottom where it belongs, but to just leave boxes sitting where you tried them on and to leave lids off of shoes in the shelves is a little much.  I feel like I'm working in the children's section of the library where they ask the kids to not return the books on the shelves.  I guess I'm lucky that was my previous job.  Who know I was working in the schools as a librarian for training for a job in Kohl's shoe department later on in life.  I also have to fill in at the registers when they get busy.  The other day I was working for 6 hours and I probably spent 1/2 an hour in shoes.  At least I'm learning more about the register each time I'm working on it.  Pretty soon I'll be an expert! ;-)

Today is dip day at work.  They will be furnishing some dip and chips and if we wish we can bring in some to share.  I made some of my diet friendlier dip and cut up some veggies.  I know what is in my dip so it will be easier to calculate the points.  I'll probably leave it there so I can have it for lunch tomorrow too.

So, how is everyone else doing.  I haven't been reading the blogs so I have no idea what's going on in everyone's life right now.

  1. I can't wait to hear about the rest of the changes at my meeting next week. I looked at what it said on Etools and I am curious to find out more about the Simple Filling day. I like change! :) I'm terrible at reading blogs too but yours caught my eye. Wishing you an awesomely OP weekend!
