Well yesterday while dealing with many issues with my neighbors I still managed to cook dinner and batch cook all this with major stress. I made a bean and ham soup with veggies, homemade burritos with homemade refried beans without the oil ;)Ö I used lowcarb whole wheat flour tortillas, bean and beef mixture with a little low fat cheese sprinkles basically. I made about ten of them and froze them, these are my way of avoiding fast food in the am. I can just pop them in the nuker and then they are on the go breakfast ;) with cut up apples and coffee. My soups for lunches with brown rice which I also cooked ahead and froze in snack pack baggies and did half cups to make the soups filling. I planned for success this week, also to wean myself from the pop habit I brought 6 oz cans which I only get one a day ;) so I have to pick lunch or dinner and if I drink pop I have to do the stairs 8 flights that is my consequence for pop drinking. That will burn it off. I am also drinking my water so far so good up to six cups, if I can get 8 Iíve succeeded but will be happy with six if itís all I do.
My wonderful excitement this weeks that added stress but I manage to keep my emotions in check mostly cuz I met up with my TOPS girls on Saturday and had not time to do much damage.
1. On Friday afternoon my husband while getting out of bed after a short nap, heard a pop and took his back out.
2. Saturday a day trip about 6 hours at the VA hospital for them to give him a shot and pain killers and he is to rest.
3. While at the hospital I get a frantic call from mom the boneheads that live above me burn a chair thus the fire dept was called out and part of their balcony is up in flames along with the chair. No damage to my space but Iím frazzled to find out that they found a cigarette in the chair which was what ignited the fire. Scary poop!
4. Okay so then on Sunday afternoon their kitchen overflows flooding them and then we get water coming through the ceilingsÖoh joy apt leaving, luckily I was home and heard the trickle right away and got storage tubs underneath the leaks I contact the mgr and she was annoyed at all the issues in this apt. They stopped the water and quote cleaned up but it took 3 hours for all the water to drip down. Now I have them using fans to dry my ceiling and am happy it didnít bubble upÖ. I just called my insurance company and requested a quote for renters insurance I canít risk it.
So that was my quote quiet weekend.
