Whew What a Day

Thursday, September 06, 2012

Our day turned out nothing like we planned. part of it did but not all. The game plan was to go get my blood work done,eat lunch and go to Wal Mart.
Well!! before we got out the door the texts started. Brianna got to school and had a flat tire. Could Grandpa please come at 12:15 with fix a flat etc. Good thing I did get up earlier than I had planned. We told her we would be there but stay inside til we called.
So we got the blood work and had time to go to WalMart which was nice. I haven't been anywhere in weeks. Ran into my nephew there and that was nice.
Got myself a new dress,new pan,new shower curtain,cucumbers and tomatoes. Checked the spice asle just to see if they carried spice I ordered from them on internet was there.Was going to compare price. They don't carry it.
Bill picked up some odds and ends stuff he needed. I also got Roxy a new toy.I doubt it will last long but it is cute. It is a rubber pig that makes more of a pig sound instead of squeek that most dog toys have. She is so funny with it.
So Wal mart trip was good. I wasn't disappointed about lunch as I didn't want to go anyway since this is Bill's Domino night.
Onto check out Brianna's tire. Her tire was flat flat. One fix a flat wasn't enough.She had no spare,no jack. She came over to me and said this was first time GP was aggravated at her. She was a little upset. Bill tried to get it out of parking lot but tire tore off. He brought me home and they left. Took about 4 hours and a tow but he got a tire on it. He said it was like a circus at the tire place. They put a used tire on it and just as she started car Bill saw big bulge.No problem they would just put another on.So off it comes.Guy takes bad tire off and lays different one down and guess what. Dummy put same tire back on and boss man saw it and off it came again.Brianna was so grateful and even tho it tuckered Bill out he didn't mind. He is going to keep an eye out for a spare tire and jack for her.
I wanted to take a nap but felt sorry for Bill so i stayed busy here doing little odds and ends so he wouldn't have to. We went to bed to take a nap when he got home a little after 4. I couldn't fall asleep so I got up. I did listen to my tape first.
Tomorrow I do nothing. emoticon
Hre are a few pictures of Landon and his parents.

Will put my facebook stuff on different blog
Oh The tire place had a pit puppy they were giving away. Very cute but too young. My days of cleaning poop and pee are long gone. If she had been older and house trained I might have been tempted.

  Hi Eleni.......
WOW...........You did have a busy day. What would our children and grand-children do without us?!?!? We have been down that "TIRE ROAD" before. Our youngest son had his tires slashed while visiting a friend in Madison the night before he was to start a new job and needed his car to get to it. We lived 40 miles away and had to get everything taken care of before 7 the next morning. We have gotten so that we hate to hear the phone ring after 8 at night for fear it is one of the kids in the middle of an emergency. Never a dull moment.........
Try to rest tomorrow.......... emoticon

    emoticon that is enough stuff for a day! I agree on the cleaning up for a puppy. It's bad enough to clean up after myself.

    So glad you had a good time out today and I so understand what Bill went through as I have seen Ashley deal with the same thing with our girls and grands. If anything goes wrong/need help--call Pa. lol

Brandon is such a cutie pie and has good-looking parents too. He reminds me of my nephews twins with long curly hair.

Have a good night Eleni and I think tomorrow would be a good day to rest.

    The second picture reminds me that I've got to keep my mouth shut more often. Do you have an idea of what it is?

The one of the boy and dog is charming.

Another Busy Day For Me

Wednesday, September 05, 2012

I am going to get this done early as i am tired and ready for a nap.After nap I have to bag soup and fix supper.
I got a big pot of soup cooked and it is sitting on stove cooling.
I got some more meds bagged. Will finished rest tonight. Then I will have 4 weeks of meds ready to put together.
Also did inventory of spices so I can get ones I need for my special blend when I see them on sale. They are expensive but I can get several at 2 for 1 sales. I decided to just order savory. My grand daughter had her boss order it and he ordered powdered. So in looked last night and ordered some from WalMart. I have found that hard to find things are not worth the hassle of hunting for them.
I do need a new large non stick skillet but I will look for one at walMart. I want to actually see it. Bill burnt my one so bad I had to throw it away.
I only have 2 pics of mine.One is my one double coneflower completely bloomed and one Bill got me.

These are some favorites from Facebook

Hope you are having a good day. I am doing well on portion control. emoticon

    You were one busy lady today my friend. Love that you can order what you need on line and get what you want without having to go looking all over town for a hard to find spice.
Great job on getting ahead on your soup and you pill batch.
Get your rest. Sandy

  Hi Eleni........
Sounds like you accomplished a lot today. I did too........I tore our big bathroom apart and changed it to a more Fall-like color scheme with pictures and flowers and decorations. I also washed my son's kitchen curtains and ironed them and did some mending for him.
Tonight I want to listen to Bill Clinton's speech. Did you listen to Michelle Obama's speech last night? I was very impressed.
Must close for now.......I am way behind tonight!!!

    I love the coneflower Eleni. One of the children used Ashley frying pay and messed it up so after we found another one like he wanted, he very politely told them to NOT use it at all as it was his "special" pan. lol Have a great evening. ((HUGS))

    What cool pics. Thanks for sharing them with us.

I appreciate your stopping by my blog and for your very kind comments. The past 6 months, I was so busy traveling between our house and Hannibal that I really didn't eat well. Dad passed away on the 10th of July and just lately, I have gotten back to my exercise and a little healthier eating.

I thank you for being so sweet and so supportive. It was great to hear from you.

Hugs, Sunny

Today has been a busy day for me. Most of my days are usually do nothing or a little .It has been a sunny bright day.I am sure it is hot but I stay in AC.
But I have been a busy little bee for me. Nothing big but just a bunch of little things.
1. Stopped the daily paper. Bill mentioned doing it but I was waiting to see if he was serious. He now has a book in his hand all the time. So we will just get the Sunday paper.And with credit due I won't have to pay anything until June of next year.
2.called and changed doc appointment to next week so I can get blood work done first
3. Emptied and reloaded dish washer
4. Made a great supper in oven.
5. Got 4 weeks of my 1st pills of the day bagged
6.Made new labels for some of bottles
7. marked an empty hummer food jug with directions for making my own and how to rinse feeder
8.Did some arm exercises
9.Listened to my special tape twice. I listen to it before I get up in morning and when I lay down for afternoon nap.
10.have DVD set up to tape Flipping out and 19 kids and counting while I watch Master Chef and Covert affairs.
11. Caught up on emails. I think

Speaking of Bill reading.He is on his #10 The Cat Who series. He really likes them.
I only took two pic today but have some misc from face book.

  Hi Eleni........
Doesn't it feel good to get lots of things accomplished...........even if they are little things, they definitely add up. I spent part of the afternoon getting Spark done as we have severe storm warnings for this evening and I always unplug the computer. Here in the country, our electricity goes OUT very easily and I don't want to screw up the's bad enough already!!!!!!
Loved your pictures again. I am especially loving the dog pictures.
Have a good night. I want to listen to Michelle Obama tonight. I really admire her.
