Grocery day is so tiring.
We went to lunch and I did good. It was my pizza fix day. But we go where I get it by the slice. I had a cup of avolemono soup no bread no crackers,1 slice mushroom pizza. I had 5 of Bill's fries.He ate half of the crust on my slice. I made a point to eat as slow as I could.
The only thing I have eaten this afternoon is a few grapes and a few slices of cucumbers.
Supper will be oyster stew(soup0 and salad.
I did get a few different things to have around to snack on.I got some cinnamon graham crackers. I looked at vanilla wafers but I get more per calorie with graham crackers. As long as I stay out of peanut butter it should be ok. I have been getting pistachio nuts but have been eating them straight from bag. I know better than to do that. I bagged them in serving size and put calories on bags. Since I have trouble eating between meal i thought I would try a candy sucker. I know the suger isn't good for us but if it will keep me from eating a bunch of calories it will be worth it. I am going to try anyway.
Once again I got so aggravated at the baggers and Bill won't say anything and I am too far back to say anything.For awhile I separated stuff between our buggies and that helped. This time I grabbed one of those cards you filled out for how the service was. We take our own bags and they are bigger than the plastic bags.The baggers seem to think they have to fill them to the top. I weighted the 2 heaviest ones.One weighed 21# and the other 18#.That is way too heavy. Then after they filled the bottom of cart they started piling bags on top.I hate that.Especially when I am right behind Bill with nothing in my riding cart. That part worked better when I go first as once mine is full I head out and the rest goes in Bills. But the icing on the cake was when I started putting stuff away at the house. One bag had my grapes and tomatoes on the bottom with a bag of potatoes,cabbage ,cauliflower and a couple of more things on top. Tomatoes are very expensive and I don't mind paying it as it helps me to not overeat.But I don't want mashed ones. Once they put a package of meat on bottom and filled bag to top with cans.I found the meat the next daySo I am filling out a card requesting they better train baggers. It probably won't do any good but it will sure make me feel better.
I still have a few things to finish in kitchen. I have to rebag the grapes and wrap the celery up.
The bags of can stuff can be done tomorrow.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
Bill even got some of his outside honey do's done. He trimmed most of my plants and emptied some pots. He even got all the stuff for the earth box and all he needs now are 2 tomato plants.
Ok gotta go.
It is a beautiful day here today.
