I have to go to work at 11:30 today.  I'll be the first one in shoes for the day.  Since I was the last one there yesterday I know (kinda) what to expect.  This is the worst I've ever seen it.  I know that the girl before me worked all day on trying to keep things picked up and put away, but when I got there it didn't look like anyone had been there in a month.  Things were everywhere.  I'm not just talking shoes.  People also leave all their other stuff that they decide they don't want in the shoe department.  I had 2 coats hanging on the shelves along with kids clothes, candles and a frame were also left behind.  So besides picking up and putting away the shoes, these slobs leave just everywhere, I also have to clean up their other messes.  It just amazes me.  The store looked a little better when I left, but it will be unattended until I get there today.  It truly looked like no one was working in that department yesterday.  I would clean an area and the next time I walked through it it would be a mess again.  It got to the point ant I decided to just do the best I could to get the area looking decent and maybe today I can work on getting things that have been returned back on the shelves and start all over again.  That's another thing.  We have A LOT!! of shoes returned.  I'm not sure what that is all about.  The shoe return cubby was full when I got there and mid way through my shift they called me to the service desk to clean it out again, because it was full.  At closing I checked again it was full again.  We had 2 carts full of shoes waiting to be put back on the shelves that were returns. AMAZING!!

OK, enough of the ranting.  I ate pretty good yesterday.  I had my smoothie for breakfast and a bowl of homemade turkey noodle soup as a mid morning snack.  I had a small salad at the restaurant for dinner.  I took my veggies and dip to work to share.  No one had brought any veggies all day so they were a big hit.  By the time I got back to the break room for my break all the carrots were gone.  I only like the carrots and green peppers so I had some dip and green peppers.  I calculated the points for the dip and the whole thing comes to 10 points.  It makes a lot of dip so I counted it high and put 2 points in the tracker.  When I got home I had some more dip and a few carrots.

Tomorrow is weigh-in.  I'm down on my scale so let's hope I keep it off today and I show a loss on their scale too.  I'm so close to being in the 140s.  Maybe this will be the week I do it!!  I really wanted to be to goal again by next week.  I don't see that happening, but I'm a lot closer than I was a year ago.
