Nothing much today

Thursday, April 29, 2010

Got up early, walked Phred and took him to get groomed. I was the first appointment of the day at 10:30am and waited until almost 11am for the people to show up and open. Glad I didn't have an appointment this morning. I really don't understand people who have businesses and make appointments for customers and then don't open up on time.
Other than that did my indoor walking dvd, watched some tv while I worked on a project, showered, picked Phred up and made dinner. Rock Cornish Game Hens with brown rice, mini corn cobs and apple sauce. Then took Phred for his evening walk and folded some clothes. Boring

  


Purchased the new tile for the house today and normal stuff (see pictures)

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

Got up this morning and took Phred for his morning walk. Decided I was going to the gym while it was not too cold. Rained last night, windy and cold this evening. After I finished with cardio, I went upstairs to do some strength and realized my little flap wallet had dropped off the necklace. I went back to the bathroom area , ellipticals and front desk with no luck. Saw that one of the other ladies I use to see a lot working out, Suzanne was now working at the gym. She has lost a ton of weight and plans are for her to hike McKinley, Alaska, this summer. Oh fantastic for her. Anyways my trainer heard what happen and we both looked and finally found it underneath a machine. Figured someone kicked it or something. Sure glad I found it cause it had my gym membership and DL inside it.

Last night went with Jeff over to Lowes and saw the tile that I love. Everytime we are in there I go and look for it. So after he got off work today (only worked half day, same tomorrow) he measured everything we are going to do in tile and off we went. We would need 27 boxes of this tile, they had 28 boxes left. Woo Hoo for us. Here is what it looks like but it is brighter than it appears in this picture
This tile will be in the entrance, kitchen, dinning room, laundry room and both bathrooms. The rest of the house will now have new carpet put in this summer. Currently our carpet is almost 26 yrs old and the current tile was put in around '87 or '88.

I told my husband that I rather have my house redone than go anywhere for our 25th anniversary in June. Looks like he will be working at that time anyways. So I suggested we go over to Catalina for the day with our son Frank. It is $34 round trip and we could still pay to do a few things like the new zip line they put in recently. Franks 24th birthday is July 3 and our anniversary is the 29th of June. We would celebrate them together and save money for the house redue.

I am so jazz to finally have my house redone this summer. It really needed it!

Cold morning for late April

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

The predicted rain but we didn't get any. By around 1pm it was just 70 degrees. More like winter time here then the end of springtime. Expect more rain at the end of the week.

Went to the market and hubby helped bring in the groceries. Ate lunch and I then took Phred out for his walk. By the time I returned home it was almost 2pm and I turned on "GH". After that I did "The Shred" dvd. I had a enough points on one of my surveys sites that I ordered another BL tape. I think it is the "BootCamp" one with Bob. Doesn't matter it will tough too.
Took a shower, started dinner. Home made chillie with left over vegetables and low sodium black beans. Was very tasty, not as spicy as I would have like but since the hubby hates spices he like it. My son added some hot sauce to his. lol

We went over to Lowes to get a new floor lamp for the living room. Mine lost the button to turn it off a while ago. It took some doing to turn it off and on. My son and I have learned not to complain but since he has been having to turn it off at night. He keeps staying up late on his PC playing some game called Evony so he has been the one to turn if off. We are at Lowes and he says go pick out a new lamp. I knew it was just a matter of time till it would piss him off enough to go get a new one. My son and I stopped complaining over 3 months ago.

Came home, took Phred for his evening walk. Now my son his putting the new floor lamp together and the husband is playing Evony. I don't care as long as the thing works correctly.

  


Very boring Monday

Monday, April 26, 2010

Got up went with the husband to the bank and to get new glass shelves may for my new cabinet. Came home walk Phred. Husband naps in the living room so can't do any housework or exercise dvd and didn't want to drive to the gym. At 3pm I did JM "30 Day Shred" because he had been asleep over 2 hrs.
We wanted to go to dinner at Chris & Pitts but remembered it is closed on Sunday. Rumour has it that the one here in Anaheim may be closing because the landlord decided to raise their rent by $4000 a month. Crazy in a recession, very unreasonable. C&P lease ran out recently. They had had a 15 yr lease. My husbands and a lot of his friend (even friends that visit from out of town like MO) love this place. I hope they get to stay. There use to be a lot of these places around but over the years there are only a few left. If this closes I think we would have to go up towards LA to eat at one. Sucks

  


Normal Sunday/NASCAR

Monday, April 26, 2010

Woke up at 7:30am a laid in bed and watched the last hours of "Sunday Morning" on CBS. Haven't watch it for about 6 months or so. Got up ate breakfast and read the paper for a little bit and then my sister in NY and we talked for close to an hour. Then I took Phred for a 39 min walk and came home to watch NASCAR. Didn't realize it had started at 9am so the race only had 60 laps to go. But if with NASCAR it took almost 2 hrs to complete, with so many crashes at the end. Jeff worked today so he missed it but he asked who won, of course.
Cleaned the house b/4 he got home and then started dinner. Did my JM"30 Day Shred", showered and walked Phred again. Then we ate dinner. Jeffs favorite what we called "Onion Gravy Steak", with baked potato, mixed veggies, biscuits and cinnamon apple sauce. Stayed within my calorie range for the day too. emoticon
