Yep...almost time for my very long "weekend" to start. I'm off all next week because Jason (my son) is coming to visit. I'm so stoked to see him!
I haven't seen him since Christmas. Which is about par for the course, as it's expensive to fly back and forth. I don't have any firm plans of what we'll do while he's here. Some shopping and some eating out. He loves In n Out. And I want to take him to Smashburger and 808 Hawaiian BBQ. But I'll do some cooking too. He likes home cooked meals. But no Mac and Cheese. My kids ate a lot of that (and hot dogs, etc) while they were growing up. It was what I could afford to put on the table. And my kids always ate..even if it meant I didn't (but that didn't happen often, I got to where I was very smart shopper!).
And next month (n Aug/Sept) we (hubby and I) fly to Oregon for my mom's 80th Birthday. Even though her BDay is in Oct, my sister wanted a BBQ for her. The weather in Hillsboro, in Oct, isn't really suited for an outdoor BBQ. So it's in Aug.
We'll get to see the my kids (and grand kids) twice this year! So lucky! And on top of that...see mom and sister and the rest of the family. Next year we hope to go to Hawaii to see my in laws.
Eating was a bit better last night. Besides the chocolate butter cream frosting I made for my quickie mug cake. I still was just within calories for the day. Today, so far, has been better. I skipped my salad (forgot to make it last night) and had Greek yogurt for lunch (with a banana). That makes two yogurts and two bananas so far today, Oh and my Starbucks this morning. Not too bad. Dinner..as always..is by the seat of pants.
And I got 65 mins in on the elliptical today! And I have over 10K steps on my Fitbit. So today is going good!
It's smokin' hot out there! 112 here at work 9outside..it's a bit chilly inside). And 118 at home (according to my hubby's Facebook page). We are in for some record breaking heat! Just what an old broad with hot flashes needs! It's also warm in Oregon and my grandkids will be enjoying the pool at the condo. Here's Miss Malia and I'd post one of Caleb IF he'd let one be taken:
So that will be it for me this hot TGIF! Everyone have a great weekend and I'll see you from home on Monday!
