New Hair Cut!

Silly me was trying to capture my new hair cut in the bathroom mirror. How you do it on your post I don't know but I am not very good at it. lol For the life of me I can not take a good picture even if I take it myself.

My hair was getting so long I had to wear it up or in a pony tail all the time so I finally got it cut. Not quite the look I wanted but it will do for now. At least it feels better.

My doctors appointment went okay. He can not understand why the other doctor just chooses to pill me up all the time instead of trying to find the cause. So at least he and I are on the same page. Problem is timing. I am having trouble with Workers Comp. I have a Endurance Test already scheduled by the other doctor for July 6th and then see him on the 11th. I have to do both so not happy about that. These test takes two hours and they use it to determine if you can go back to work. The last one I did they of course let me go back for four hours a day with lots of lay down breaks Can you imagine lying down in a jail cell. lol

So by July 11th I will know a llittle more about my situation. Hopefully it will turn out for whatever is best for me..

Work is still crazy.....sometimes I think you have to be crazy to work there. Another young man tried to kill hisself with me watching him on camera. Very stressful to get him help in time to stop his attempt. Thank goodness I was doing my job and not goofing off. There are so many that don't take this job serious enough that it scares me 

Here is a picture of Christi and Toby.  I took this in the hallway between my bedroom and hers.

She loves her Toby!

Later today Gretchen and I are suppose to keep our date for writing. I am looking forward to it since I have not seen her in a while and we both miss writing too. It will be fun way to spend a few hours.

Christi has so many great cook books and she found this Sour Cream Noodle Bake recipe and I have to tell you it turned out excellent. 

We both joined Weight Watchers this morning so I probably want be making anymore dishes like this for a while. lol

If your looking for something quick, easy and good then try this dish.

■1-¼ pound Ground Chuck

■1 can 15-ounces Tomato Sauce

■½ teaspoons Salt

■Freshly Ground Black Pepper

■8 ounces, weight Egg Noodles

■½ cups Sour Cream

■1-¼ cup Small Curd Cottage Cheese

■½ cups Sliced Green Onions (less To Taste)

■1 cup Grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese

Preparation InstructionsPreheat oven to 350 degrees.

Brown ground chuck in a large skillet. Drain fat, then add tomato sauce. 1/2 teaspoon salt and plenty of freshly ground black pepper. Stir, then simmer while you prepare the other ingredients.

Cook egg noodles until al dente. Drain and set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine sour cream and cottage cheese. Add plenty of freshly ground black pepper. Add to noodles and stir. Add green onions and stir.

To assemble, add half of the noodles to a baking dish. Top with half the meat mixture, then sprinkle on half the grated cheddar. Repeat with noodles, meat, then a final layer of cheese. Bake for 20 minutes, or until all cheese is melted.

Hope you have a great week!

Love to all

Hi Maggie,
From what I can tell in the photo, your hair looks great and suits you fine!

Hope you are having a nice summer.

I think you look very posh with your new haircut! Did you hear about the patient that died of a heart attack while in restraints at Parkland Hospital in Dallas? Heads are rolling.

Jon Lee said...

I think your hair looks great. I hope everything works out well with your medical tests. Good luck on your weight plan.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Ooooh, love your hair, Maggie! I can't get a picture of myself either - mine come out blurry because I'm trying to do it one handed and I'm a shaky person to begin with. Good luck with your tests. I hope everything turns out in your favor.

Linda said...

I think your hair is beautiful! My twin and I broke down and colored ours again. We went golden blonde, and guess what, no one noticed. Hrummph! That's ok, we like it.

Hopefully the docs can figure you out.

Cathy said...

I will be saying prayers for your up and coming test and that all will go in your favor.

I love the picture of Chrisit and Toby...they are both adorable!!

Hugs and much Love to you.

Julia said...

Thanks for leaving a nice comment on my blog Maggie,.

I love your hair and it suite you beautifully, I'm glad that your new doctor is on the same page as you. I just wish that he can help you. I hope that he can find the cause of your back pain instead of filling you with pills that only makes you feel worst.

Christi is a beautiful woman and her dog Toby is just darling.

Writing with Gretchen should be good therapy from all that stressful job of yours. I hope that retirement from that jail job is in the near future for you.

Sending some prayers of pain free bliss your way. Hugs. JB

Cute cut girl! You look even more like my sweet Sis-in-law now! Your short locks are still alot longer than my short locks! I keep thinking I need to grow mine out, but I get to frustrated with the growing out period...good luck with your endurance test and hopefully it will all work out for you. Your job sounds way more stressful than mine!

Marydon said...

You look as magnificent & elegant as you did when we were at your fabulous home.
If only everyone could meet you to see what a beautiful lady you are.

You need to do a post on that rocking chair, sweetie.

Christi is gorgeous! Hope you & Gretchen were able to spend time.

Miss you, Love you, too.
Hugs of love,

Thanks everyone for your sweet comments. I love all of you

Shirley said...

Hi Maggie, I like your hair cut and it is probably cooler and easier to do. I am playing catch up with my friends tonight. I wish I could ship you some of the flood water in our area. We got rain yesterday and they are predicting more for the next three days. They tore up our parking lot to asphalt and that is why it is raining. I am so glad that you found a doctor who is on the same page as you and doesn't sound like he believes in just giving pain pills and maybe find the cause. I think the first doctor was just milking the systems. Hoping and praying for you. Hugs Your Missouri Friend.

Dr. Kathy McCoy said...

Hi, Maggie: Your new hair cut looks great -- and so does that delicious looking recipe you shared!

Tracy Suzanne said...

Hey Hon', I think the haircut looks so polished and cute. Just what I need myself. You look great with it. I'm glad you've found a Dr. that's ready to try something different. Still have you in my prayers.

OOXX's...Tracy :)

Oh' that recipe looks great too.

Love your blog.))

I now spend a survey of bloggers with such questions.
1. Why did you create a blog?
2. For whom you taking him? Want to be popular?
3. How long will it keep going?

Hi, Maggie! Love your new hair cut!! Christie and Toby are both too cute! You are a bad girl for sharing a NOODLE recipe~ noodles and breads are my downfall, well, and chocolate!!

Big Hugs,

Pom Pom said...

Hi Maggie! I like your hair! It looks like mine! Smile! I didn't know you weren't feeling well. I hope you are well soon.

Fresh Garden said...

I wish you all the best with your weight plan and medical tests! :)

Your new hair style is fabulous!

Simply Soothing Studio said...

I LOVE your haircut!

Hopefully this doctor can make you feel better. I once had a doctor who just wanted to keep prescribing pain killers for my neck rather than helping to find the problem. After a year, I took the advice of a vendor and went to her chiropractor. Come to find out, I had a neck bone out of place that was pushing on some nerves. After some intense therapy from her, I am mostly pain free. Thank goodness.

I'm doing Weight Watchers, too. If you would like a really good recipe site, let me know. There is a gal who makes some of the most mouth watering meals and she lists the Points Plus for each.

Take care.


Libbie said...

Hey Maggie! I missed you while I was away on vacation! We are driving through Tennessee as I type :)

I think you look pretty cute! I cut my hair in summer too...I like short hair :). I need to attack mine soon. It is dreadful.

Hope you girls got some writing in! I sure hope you are still writing your scary book!

You are such a blessing at your work because I know you would take your job very seriously and do such a god job... I just wish you were feeling better!

I'd better run...rococo is trying to bite my poor mom stuck in the backseat :). But glad for the visitt with you!!
