Out and About....again!

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

Boy, I have to be getting some exercise with as much as I've been running around town doing this and that, constantly. Today I'm going with our daughter to town so she can get some shoes to replace the show shoes she accidentally threw away, and try to find that ribbon I couldn't find yesterday. I'm thinking Hobby Lobby has it because it's on their website and the woman I spoke to had no clue what she was talking about.

She asks "Is it a bright cancun green, or a dull", I looked at it do you qualify whether it's dull or bright? It's cancun green, that should be enough to know, the ribbons do have the colors on them! And she asked a zillion other questions that I had no idea to the answer of them, most wouldn't unless they worked in a fabric store! So I look online and sure enough...there it is, sold by the store. She could have saved us a whole lot of running had she known what she was talking about, drives me insane!

Anyway, enough of that, I've barely had time to do my regular exercises, it's mainly running/walking all over town, then I come home and cook, bake, etc, and finally rest after I wash dishes for supper. Last night after work, our son called and said his car wouldn't start, so right after I'd gotten home, I had to run back into town again. My husband has taken it upon himself to help his brother with his fields (right next to the house); and because I know nothing about cars, I asked him to go in, but he didn't have time..he had to turn the hay over before the guy came to bail it. Then his brother called later and said the guy wouldn't even be out that night....ARRRRRGGHGHHHHHHH take me away!!!

Ok, enough ranting, I need to get ready to go to town, yet again, so I'll see you later, have a great day. emoticon

    Sounds like you are getting plenty of exercises. It is good to be busy. I hate running around trying to find stuff or send Bill to do it. I have been ordering more and more from internet. Worth paying extra for convenience.

Eh, so-so

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

My stomach hurts a little, but I'm sure I'll feel better later in the day. Need to do my exercises but I may have to wait until later, as my daughter's coming over to pick up her cart , which is at another place, and take it to get a piece of leather put on it. I'm hoping when she picks up the cart it already has it on, but the guy wasn't sure he could do it. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Also found out the pony show is the same day as my cousin's (2 of them) graduation celebration, so I'm going to miss that. Shoot. I really hate that because their grandmother and dad's usually come to everything we've had, I really feel bad.

Well, hopefully today will go great, keeping my fingers crossed. You have a beautiful day too. emoticon

Back from Wedding Celebration

Monday, June 17, 2013

I've returned from my trip to our nieces wedding up in Green Bay, and it was gorgeous; she looked so happy, as did her fiancee.

It was a wonderful trip, got up on Sunday and walked down to Lambeau field, then past the training building (the company my hubby works for did the building); and back to the hotel. I was shocked, MapQuest said it was 4.5 miles. I couldn't believe it, but hey, I'm glad I walked now!

We had so much fun and my husband, myself, and his brother were at the same table as the bride's parents, what an honor. My husband is her Godfather, so he got a flower too.

Well, back to work, until Friday when we leave for Springfield, IL, a long drive, for the Regional IV Shetland Show. Should be fun. Have a great week!

When our daughter picked up Gator (her dog) we found that a dog next to him had taken her 2001 high points blanket that Gator loved, and tore it to pieces. It was awarded her for having high points during her last year in 4H in the horse/pony project. Such a shame, Gator loved it and we figured he'd be more calm with something he was used to laying on. Frustrating.

    Glad you had a good time. Hopefully she will find another something that Gator likes

Computer withdrawal over the weekend?

Friday, June 14, 2013

well now we see how we do without a computer for the weekend and worse of all, without SparkPeople. I've become so dependent on my nutrition area here, I find it hard to keep track of what I'm eating and figuring out the calories in it. I don't have a cell phone that I can get internet to connect to, nor any computer anywhere to use, so I'm up a creek, with only my book to use, I hope it has everything, but we'll do the best I can.

Anyway, I'm hoping maybe to walk down to Lambeau Field sometime, I've never been in that neighborhood so I don't know what it's like there in Green Bay if you can do that safely or not, but we're about a block away, so if I walk down there and back a few times, I could get in some of my exercise, maybe if the hotel has a weight room too...but we'll see. I'll try to get my husband, or kids to dance, that'll be fun too, but my husband doesn't dance much, but to slow songs once in a great while.

I hope you all have a great weekend, and I'll see you Sunday night or Monday morning!

    I don't think I could do without my computer. I had a small laptop before I got this full size one. Always checked where ever we went to be sure they had internet. Now we have phones so I don't have to take laptop. But I never go anywhere any more.But you will have so much fun you won't miss it

Weather changes.

Thursday, June 13, 2013

Wow, talk about a change in weather, yesterday it was so warm out and today it's really cool, at least that breeze it. I had the ceiling fan on full blast yesterday and I'm about ready to close the windows today. I can't believe how much things have changed from when we first moved into our home. Used to be I had wished we'd gotten an air conditioner put in the house because it was always so hot in here, but now...we don't really need one hardly, a quick jump in the pool and we're good to go.

For some reason the weather has changed so drastically that even when the day is hot, you still get that cool breeze, no matter what! That's so weird, but what can you do....I guess be thankful for it, because otherwise we'd be roasting, right? No complaints, then, just enjoy.

Have a wonderful day, and I'm leaving Saturday morning, early, heading to Green Bay, for our neices wedding, so have a fantastic weekend everyone and always smile! emoticon
