Wonderful Wednesday

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

Had a surprise visit from son and daughter in law. Had gone to get hair cut and on the way home they called to say they were on their way to come up and get the dogs. Went out to eat with them at Texas Roadhouse at 8:30 and blew my calorie intake...but not by much. Had I known they were coming would have adjusted my intake. My how things have changed.

Late night and struggled to get out of bed this AM. Will make it to Curves tonight but didn't make morning workout.

House got painted yesterday and still waiting on air conditioner part. These home improvement projects are an interesting adventure. Painters blew a couple of circuits plugging their equipement in and now a couple of outside sockets are no longer working. When son and daughter in law went to leave...discovered outside spots no longer work. They somehow poked a hole in our garden hose. You just sit back and can't believe all the things that happen. You might as well laugh as cry. Glad hubby is in charge of it and not me.

Been by myself this week at work. One co-worker still off from surgery and other co-worker has been sick. Went ok. Boss kept asking if I was lonely...No seem to be doing fine!

Off to make it a great day!

    I hate home improvement projects. I always ask "why am I paying these ppl" but when it's over I'm always happy with the results. Keep up your good work with healthy habits! :-)

Busy week day and night. Son and daughter in law tried to leave Florida yesterday but weather canceled their flight so got to stay one more day with daughter. Hopefully they leave today.

Dogs sitting for our kids is really helping me add the exercise minutes up. The Cairn Terrier Reece Cup has energy to burn. We walk and he is still ready to go. The Westie is a little older and he slows down first. Wish I had some of their energy!

Co-worker was ill yesterday and other co-worker still off recovering from surgery. She will return next week. So was by myself a lot of the day with boss coming in for awhile mid day. Went smoothly. A little busy at times.

Doing good at tracking food intake. The scales...I know they aren't supposed to be our only measure...are also going down. I've stopped the cycle of them going up and up. Interesting when you count what you eat you can stay within range and still not feel deprived..and full...and still eat out some. Main thing is planning and choosing the right foods on the menu.

    Congrats! Dog sitting is great - every time I sit my friend's dog it makes me jealous that I don't have a frisky animal helping me get my exercise in. Cats, unfortunately, are not big on taking walks... ;) Enjoy it while you can!

Marvelous Monday

Went to bed early to get some rest and woke up at 1 until 3. Hate nights like that. Oh well. Off to start a great week!

Air conditioning repair people due today.

Had a good time with Mom. She admitted she was having a pity party for herself. Sat and talked for awhile and got her to go to Bob Evans and get something to eat...and afterwards she was bouncing back. Know she needs that once in awhile.

Well new air conditioner isn't working. Will be here to work on it tomorrow. Headed over to Mom's. She's on a downer right now. Thought maybe I'll go over and see if I can listen and find out what is going on with her. Think she's stewing and got herself all worked up. Hard to keep her up. A couple of weeks ago she was so good. Other people around her having surgeries and don't know if she's jealous she doesn't have a crisis or not or what is going on. Praying I listen and don't lecture :) She has so much to be thankful for...few worries. May I learn from her to lean on HIM and not dwell on the negative. I know I can get that way on here just venting my frustrations and it seems like I dwell on the negative when I have so much to be thankful for.

My kids are together at daughter's in Florida. Hear they are having fun. That warms the mother's heart. We are dog sitting. They are getting me out and walking them several times a day. They sure have energy to burn. Wish I could borrow some of it.!

    I work with elderly all the time and when I visit my elderly relatives I feel like lecturing them too. If I give in to the lecture it never gets very far so I say things like- Wow, I'm so proud of you that you're doing this or that. "We" are all so lucky you can still do it, we should give thanks for "our" blessings. My relatives are not religious ppl but they get the message.
Hope the AC starts working for you.

    So sorry about your new air conditioner. There isn't any to be bought in our town or any of the towns near to us. My best friend went to get one yesterday and they told her to come back on Friday. Sears was to get a shipment in then.
Hope your mom is doing ok...maybe she just wants you to stop by and listen to her "problems." You do a great job with her. Just continue to love her as you do!!

    Patience is difficult to have at times. I'm sure you'll do ok. So much for new ac not working. That will really take some patience if your weather is like ours.
