Yesterday was miserable. Hot and humid. Sweating all day long. Ugh. Today? The same. LOL. Ground Hog Day.
Yesterday my son and I left early and went to the post office, newspaper office, and the bank. Then we went to the MD and he examined him and did some labs and decided that my son either has an urinary tract infection, a kidney stone, or cancer. The MD thinks is is most likely the first and started him on Cipro which is a horrible med but one of the few that still works.
We then went to McDonald's for lunch and had a Bacon Ranch Grilled Chicken Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette. The place was a mess and the service so slow that customers were standing around knee deep wondering what the problem was. A woman said to me, "What is going on here? This is the weirdest McDonald's I have ever been in." While waiting for your food you could observe the entire life cycle of the common house fly on the counters, from mating to egg laying to maggot/larvae to pupa to adult. An old lady was fretting over a ball of flies doing "who knows what" near her table. And she wondered if the place was clean. LOL. McDonald's Clean?? ROFLMBO!! If you want a clean table without a copulating fly couple you will have to go somewhere else.
We went to Aldis, Wal-mart and Kroger and got groceries. We came home and put them away and my son went to taekwondo while I fixed a healthy supper. So I ate on plan all day yesterday.
We went to KMart and I bought a new purse for 40% off. Actually it is more like a suitcase than a purse. My son nixed all of the purses that I really liked by pointing out that were "too hookerish." After he mentioned it I did notice that they were rather gaudy and youthful and, yes, a little hookerish and it brought into question my taste. LOL. So I ended up buying a Jaclyn Smith black leather old lady purse. It looks even worse at home than in the store. It's hideous - really boxy and unattractive but it will hold all my junk. As I get older I tend to have more and more junk. This is what I have transferred into my new purse so far - jewelry, comb, brush, toothpaste, toothbrush, tooth picks, floss, Listerine Pocket packs, Lip Balm, Lip Gloss, cologne, hand sanitizer, cough drops, Chloroseptic Sore Throat Strips, antacids, pill box, Tylenol, nuts, sugar-free on-the-go drink mix, Altoids, sugar cubes (for hypoglycemia), pepper, artificial sweetener, scissors, ink pens, calculator, planner, bills, address labels, stamps, checkbook, Lock De-Icer, sewing kit, fan, measuring tape, multi-tool, can/bottle opener, wallet, coin purse, card holder, my sons extra wallet and card holder, and lots of keys. I'm not done. LOL. It weighs 6 pounds already. It should help with strength training. LOL.

I had trouble sleeping last night due to arthritis but I feel much today now that I am eating on plan again. It's amazing how much better I feel when I eat on my plan.
I got my indoor and outdoor chores done the first thing this morning so I could beat the heat. I also got 2 loads of laundry done. My son and I did some batch cooking for a few days too.
Sparkpeople is messing up for me again today.
