Regular day

Saturday, May 01, 2010

The weather was nice today. Took Phred out for his morning walk, he really likes doing the longer walks in the morning. He is started to get a bit better on the busy streets too. Not so scared.
We watch an old movie my husband had ordered only. A Andy Griffith movie from 1957 called "No Time For Sergeants". A classic old time corny movie that still makes us laugh. Frank watched it with us and he thought it was pretty good even if it was in B&W. LOL Kids so spoiled, always had color movies unless some producer did it like in "Raging Bull".
Going to bed a bit early tonight. Have to drive over to Huntington Beach tomorrow by 9:50am and not too familiar with that area of OC. Should be fun and I will write about the kayaking tomorrow.


Fun day

Got up and did my morning routine, then took Phred for his morning walk. Changed it up just a little bit. Irene called me right after I returned to say she could go bowling with me and would pick me up around 12:30pm. She ran a little late but that was OK.
We had fun bowling. She beat me pretty good the first game but I won the other 5 games in a row. I am getting much stronger at bowling again and my scores are getting more consistent. I think maybe I should try to go back to a league again sometime. Will have to wait and see how it goes with my neck. Sort of funny when ones thinks that with 6 pins and a metal plate in my neck I bowl. After my sister had the same operation with only 4 pins she never bowled again.

Came home to find that my husband was suffering from a bad headache. Felt so bad for him because he rarely gets them. He took some aspirin and took a long afternoon nap. He is ok now. Frank ate leftovers and I had a HC meal. When Jeff got up I heated up the leftover game hen, rice, french bread and gave him a jello. I think he will live. lol

Did my evening walk with Phred and am waiting to watch the new "Ghost Whisperer" and I hope a new "Medium". emoticon emoticon

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)

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.
