Busy St. Patty's Day.

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

My mother arrived safely yesterday, even though the bus was 45 min. late due to a traffic jam on the interstate.

Today we'll be going to sign the lease, etc. and perhaps pick up a few things for hew new apartment (shelving for the bathroom, curtains, etc.) and get her set up with a phone, etc.

It will be a couple of weeks before my sons can get her moved here, but she has some packing to do in that time anyway.

I woke up this morning weighing LESS than yesterday, so my focus on not abandoning my eating plan while she's here is working. Of course, I'm celebrating St. Patrick's day with Joe and his famous Reuben sandwiches tonight, so I'm not out of the danger zone yet, lol.

Yesterday was cold and rainy, but today promises to be warmer and sunny, which will make all the errands with Mother much more fun.

Don't forget to wear the GREEN today, for St. Patty! (I'm Italian, but oh well)

    I hope your St. Patty's day went well! Sounds like you are one busy lady. I love reubens too! I actually made a small corned beef roast in the crockpot yesterday. I put cut up potatoes on the bottom. No cabbage - just water to cover the potatoes and then added the corn beef. It came packaged with seasonings. It cooked for 8 hours and was marvelous!

    Karen I am so glad things are doing so well! I LOVE Reubens! It is what I order all the time when out but I have them substitute turkey for the corned beef and leave the Thousand Island in the kitchen! The swiss makes it more than gooey enough! I have at least one a week when we go to town!
    Have a great time with your mother!
