Chores, chores, chores, and not a drop to drink

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Ever hear that phrase: Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink. Its in reference to being marooned at sea. Get it? There is water, but you can't drink it because its salty. Work work everywhere but nary a pay check to see.

Me, I spent the whole day at Home Depot and Lowe's shopping for home improvements. Wow, those stores are huge. One word: bleh. But, when its all done, it will be 'Wow!' So, I'm looking forward to it all being 'Wow!' I haven't had enough water to drink and my legs look like tree trunks, total water retention. I just chugged two cups of tea. I plan to drink a couple more glasses of water before bed. I know I will have to get up to tinkle, but I hate having water in my legs. It hurts.

I did my tai chi workout this morning. I plan to do a workout early tomorrow before the linoleum team gets here. I will be spending tomorrow cleaning up the yard. I need to scrounge up some really sturdy gloves and tough garbage bags. I also need to measure the toilet, the microwave, and a window.

I had dinner at Olive Garden early, at lunch time prices. I had the portobello ravioli and the minestrone soup. None of which are on the 'South Beach' diet. However, they are well within range on calories and had a lot of nutritional value. I skipped the breadsticks entirely!!! Yeah me!!

I bought myself a couple more DVDs. I got Kathy Smith's Tummy Trimmers, 'The Goddess Workout', and 'Shiva Rea's Yoga Trance Dance'. All of them were on sale at Target online.

    I love to browse at Lowes, Home Depot, and Menard but must admit that they have very little to appeal to my taste. Everything is beige or white.
