Busy with life over the last week or so.

Friday, March 16, 2012

I was pretty busy this past weekend. Went to the Health food convention again this year. Only went for half a day but got so many samples of everything from granola bars, chocolate to breakfast cereal, ice cream, yogurt, soy product. Well you get the picture. Jeff brought home 10 boxes of 12 each Cliff bars (Blueberry, coconut and white macadamia flavors) and 6 cases of the new crunch Cliff bars in various flavors 12 boxes to a case with 6 in each box, along with 7 loafs of Oroweat bread. Retail would easily be $300 + if purchased at the store.
I always have fun at this. This year and last Fabio was there and the big guest this time was Ziggy Marley. He gave a concert on Friday night. I got to see him at the booth he, his brother and sister were sponsoring. I took a picture of Ziggy on my cell phone and sent to my daughter. Pretty cool.

Went bowling on Sunday morning with my friend Pricila and her family and some other friends of hers. It was fun but took forever to get through 2 games. They left and then I bowled 4 more games in a short amount of time. I was exhausted from the day b4 and I had trouble sleeping Sat. night due to something I sampled. Hate when you question what is in a product, they tell you no and then after you try it. some idiot goes, "Oh I was wrong there is such & such in there". For me that was strawberry so I had a rough night and rash on my face the next morning.

After bowling I came home and got ready to go to our chiropractors (Dr. Wright)new office where he was having a party. His new office is so much closer to our house. It is also so much nice than the old one. He has won best Chiropractor in Anaheim for the last few years. Once my ankle gets better I could easily walk the less than 2 miles one way. I have been having trouble with my jaw, I get TMJ sometimes because it pops out of place. Had been in pain for many days because I couldn't get back in place. I have seen him 2 times this week and it feels much better. See him tomorrow and maybe 3 times next week. He is also doing electrical stim. on my ankle until I can see the podiatrist in April. We have been seeing him since around 1999/2000, when he had this small office and his wife ran the front desk.

Bowled on Tuesday (not very good 157 for first game and won $5) but the other two games sucked. Bowled on Wednesday too but didn't do too well either. The jaw, ankle and neck pain is keeping me from doing my best.

I rejoined Planet Fitness this week also but down to the $10 fee and can only use the PF near the house. I tried all day to get over there but Jeff is off work again after working 11 days straight (last week was 70 hours) so we have started working on the house again.

I started to clean the house today and my vacuum died. I wanted to get one that is for hardwood floors now since that whole house with be that or tile. I looked online to find the best one. Two were commercials ones that were way too much money. I found a Bissel one that was listed first on my search on Amazon. I went to their site but they did not have anymore (I guess the company is not selling this model at the moment, which means to me they are coming up with something else). Amazon had 2 news one listed, so I ordered it but it won't arrive until April 6th. Will have to borrow my neighbors vacuum until then or use the shop vac. With shipping it was just over $199 but I had 5 or 6 $10 gift cards so it was down to $131. It looks pretty cool with a V-shape head that works really well on floors and corners. There was a video which showed how it works. I hope I like it.

    Teri, so glad that you are back. I missed you! Sounds like you have been really busy, the bars that Jeff bought you are going to be much appreciated, I am sure!
    Poor Jeff, he has to work such long, weird hours.

    How is the house coming along? Don't work that new vaccuum too hard, emoticon

    So sorry you are having all these pains :( Hope the treatments work soon.
    What kind of job does Jeff have that works such long bizarre hours then time off?
    That was quite the score on getting Cliff bars for a show price.
    Hope you do like the vacuum, can't imagine buying something like that without trying it out first.
    Hope you have a fabulous Friday and a great weekend!
