Hubby and I were feeling very adventurous and kinky today. Kinky for people in my area is not kinky like people in Las Vegas or New Orleans. No offense to the people who live there, I know everyone there is not kinky but your cities are on practically every list of the most kinky cities in the U.S. so someone there must be kinky.............. whatever kinky is. Don't tell me. I really don't want to know. LOL. To clarify, kinky for my hubby and me usually means leaving the house on Sunday to do something besides work. LOL.
We decided to go to the Herb and Garden Show at the local mall where my son works. When I use the term mall I don't want to confuse you with a vision of a mall like you would see in a city. This isn't Mall of America. It's closer to a strip mall type thing than a typical mall. We have a Sears, Penney's, Peebles, a Hibbetts, Shoe Sensation, Bath and Body Works, Maurices. a music store, a couple of clothing stores, Subway, Asian restaurant, coffee kiosk, and maybe a couple of other cheesy stores. Plus a bunch of empty stores. One level. There is no Neiman Marcus, Tiffani's, Saks, Bloomingdales, Louis Vuitton, skating rink, food court, fountain.
We had never been to this show so we talked to our son about going as he was running the store he works at today. He was going to call us once he was at work to let us know about the show. Why? We have been to a mall before. We can handle ourselves. We don't need an escort. LOL.
Actually when anything goes on in our tiny town everyone shows up. If they were giving away discounted proctos everyone in the county would bend over and line up. LOL. The parking lot and mall was packed. I had never been to one of these shows before and always wondered what it was like. It was different. Sort of like a cross between a flea market, rummage sale, with a tiny bit of plant stuff thrown in. There was a guy there playing the banjo and his wife was playing a keyboard. It was the best thing to me. Not to shock anyone but I have a banjo, though I have not played it in years. LOL. We stopped in and said hi to our son. We didn't see anyone there we knew but saw our DISH provider and her mother entering when we were leaving.
Hubby would have purchased something for me but I only found a handful of things I really liked, mostly dishes, and I didn't need them. As I have stated before, I am entering into one of my minimalist phases. No, I am not returning to my days, like when my hubby met me, where I had minimal furniture, a 12 inch black and while TV, and no stereo, but I am reducing, reusing, recycling. I am not bringing anything into the house unless something is leaving it. And I'm helping stuff to leave.
We then went to Wal-Mart to get some spray paint and sugar free Valentine candy (hubby's idea) and to Lowes to look for some biological bug spray before we stopped at Burger King as we were starving. By the time we got home the day was over. We spent the rest of the day with Alpha Reekie. He demands attention. Hubby caught up on some paper work tonight.
I wanted to add that I certainly loved what everyone had to say about my no excuse blog. Trust me, I'm not being mean, I just hate to see people digging their own graves. I can't help it. I'm a nurse. I can't stand by and watch people commit suicide by food.

It sleeted and snowed much of the day yesterday and last night but melted on contact. Very weird weather. Today was bitterly cold and it started out around 12 and warmed up to 26. We didn't care and went outside anyway for a very long walk. It was definitely cold but at least the sun was out and we walked longer than usual. We ate well today too.
Now to the lecture. Some of you have earned this.
As you all know I read a lot of blogs and some of them have changed my life. They have inspired me and I have learned invaluable information. Others have almost made me ill. Sorry but I must be brutally honest. This may sound mean but some people should read their own blogs from an objective point of view.
This only applies to a few people I know but it is a chronic problem. They resurrect a recurrent theme - they blame their cheating on other people: I had to eat the Twinkie to make my hubby happy, my daughter will get mad it I don't eat her birthday cake, the people at work keep forcing doughnuts on us, the hostess will be hurt if I don't eat the brownies. Yeh, right. Sorry but I'm calling you out on this. It's total B.S. and so lame to blame others for your cheating. It reminds me of my son's grade school chum who told me he was allergic to vegetables. LOL. Total bunko. Stop using others as an excuse.
When I eat "garbage" and, trust me I do, it isn't because my son and husband forced me to do it. I'm not going to blame my cheating on the cat or dog or the devil or a boll weevil. It is because I'm weak-willed and wanted to eat bad.
Do you know how stupid this excuse sounds? Please grant me some intelligence. I'm a nurse. I know better when you try to feed me this crap and so do you. Why do it. Own you mistakes.
And, PLEASE, PLEASE. PLEASE don't ask me the next day why you can't lose weight or why you gained weight when you have been soooooooooo good because I'm at the point where I want to tell you the truth and you won't like it.
You can either be a loser or a loser and there is a difference. With one kind of loser you drop unwanted pounds and with the other kind you haven't lost an ounce, just any semblance of integrity you ever had by making lame excuses. Your choice.
Hopefully for your sake Nice Morticia will be back tomorrow. LOL.

We were supposed to have a rain/snow mix here Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. It did snow, I guess, from what the meteorologist said on the weather but the snow did not accumulate. It was wet Wednesday morning and only 32-33 degrees so things could have been better but there was no visible ice. We are entering a cold spell. Winter is not over.
Tuesday was the best day weather-wise we are to have for quite a while so I got out to all my shopping and errands done them. I picked up the mail, went to my Dish provider and paid my bill, got the newspapers for the last week, went to Casey's to buy a lottery ticket as my hubby wanted me to, went to Shoe Stop looking for some new tennis shoes but I'm too picky, went to the bank to report that I didn't get my checks and made my deposit, went to one of my favorite stores - Dish on The Square - that was closed for the day for some reason, went to Big Lots, to my husband's work to tell him our security surveillance system was needing some attention, went to the power co-op to pay the power bill, went to TSC, went to Kohl's, and then IGA, Kroger, Aldi, and Wal-mart to get groceries. I came home and my son was off for the day so he helped me put everything away and fix supper. I came home and did my chores. Baby is always waiting now for me to feed her.
I awakened at 4 on Wednesday and could not go back to sleep. I really wanted more sleep. I never want to get up any more like I use to. I used to spring out of bed. The bed feels wonderful and I want to stay. I don't feel well. My MRSA is back and for anyone who has ever had it chronically it's a big bummer. I always get it in the winter at some time. My back is trying to act up and my arthritis is bothering me. I'm achy and have malaise and fatigue. I'm tired. I have G.I. problems. A mild intermittent fever and feel chilly sometimes which is not typical for me. I have to push myself to do everything. My exercise and diet need improvement. I'm not enjoying my exercise and I really can't think of anything healthy I want to eat. I have tons of things I need to do and don't want to do them. Other than that I'm fine. LOL. I just need a good beating and I'm sure someone will give me one. LOL. I did manage to get my steps in and my chores done. It feels good to feed Baby. She is old and it's cold outside and she lays on her side in the yard. It makes me feel good to know I can afford to give her extra food.
Today I slept better and felt a little better. I put off eating and tried to eat healthier food. I made some cooked cabbage with turkey sausage in it and some fresh pineapple. Baby got to our spot really fast today to get her food. She is not messing around. It's really cold out there now and hope she is warm enough. My son got to work days today for a change - a rarity. He also went to taekwondo. Hubby and I went for a walk after he got off work. It was cold but nice to get outside.

I had a really long blog I wrote early in the day and saved it and now I can't find it. I am so irritated. I am going to bed.
