****ing Calltaking

Today's highlights include ---
The woman in labor with contractions less than two minutes apart on her third pregnancy who didn't want to take her pants off to deliver the baby.
Alarm company idiot giving me an alarm for "26 Raul Lie Drive" because they don't pay them enough to actually read.  (translation: 26 Raleigh)
The woman SO concerned for her mentally ill daughter that her only contact number is a cellphone that's about to die because she's at the shore on vacation.
And finally, the woman that didn't want to get off the phone with me to speak to the police about her domestic issue because I "was going to f***ing listen to her and she wasn't f***ing getting arrested."
I hate people.

County To All Cars: Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Quiet morning at work so far, I have a very decent group of officers on, so it promises to be a fantastic day.
Tried the low-carb "pancake" for breakfast this morning - and it is definitely a winner. One egg, one tablespoon of psyllium fiber, 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, cinnamon, and artificial sweetner of your choice. let it sit for a bit- put it in a buttered pan, and make it just like a pancake. I had to use some orange metamucil because that's all I had in the way of psyllium, but it was fantastic!  I put just a smidge of heavy cream on top of it and chowed down. It only took one and I was full. I think this is going to be a breakfast staple for sure.
Weigh in this morning - down 2.2lbs. Last weigh in was five days ago - and I'm feeling some major bloat so I'm happy that I continued to go down in weight. This puts me at 24% of my goal, and makes me even more determined to stick to this while I'm on vacation. Next weigh in will be June 6th when I return from vacation.

I realized this morning that I'm losing in my hands, wrists, feet, and ankles. I can see the bones in my wrists again, and the top of my feet are no longer swollen -- even retaining all this water. I remember reading something a long time ago about your body wanting to protect the major organs, so when you lose - it takes away from the point farthest away from there. Or I might have made that up, I don't know.

Hopefully the bloat goes away before I get on the plane next Monday, this should all be sorted by then. Plus - how cool would it be to come back from vacation thinner?
7 Days until vacation!
