Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!! You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)
Had another wonderful day with happy hubby .. It's been the first day that I could actually LET MY HAIR DOWN .. so to speak, without "whatifs" floating on the back of my head .. well the ride was wonderful .. the sun was out and it was warm coming in the window ..
The machines well -- they started out okay -- but sunk pretty fast as time went on .. Finally at 3:00 .. we decided to hit the road .. It is what it is .. (baaad machines .. lol) Hubby had offered to leave earlier, and take a ride to Northstar .. but at that time I was having fun .. and I haven't been doing well at Northstar lately .. but I should have accepted .. Oh well .. Like I said .. it is what it is .. :)
You KNOW it's a bad day when I went to the snack counter and ordered myself an ice cream cone, just to pacify myself .. and the ice cream machine was down .. *sigh* .. REALLY !!!!???? lol lol lol
When we left, I was HUNGRY !!! Hubby had snacks in the car for the ride, and that sufficed .. We talked about dinner .. and settled on Red Robin for some burgers ..
We talked, and we went to the one in Brookfield Square mall .. I was almost done with my steps for the day .. but he sits his butt at the blackjack table, and doesn't move, so he had alot of steps left .. I told him .. after we finished .. he could take a lap around the mall .. and I would do the "short lap" .. He goes through the major stores, and down the hallways .. I told him that I would do the short lap (that way he doesn't feel so self conscious) .. and he could take his through the stores and all lap .. if he wanted to do 2 laps .. that would be fine .. I wasn't in a rush ..lol .. and we met up at an agreed point .. :)
So he got some of his steps in .. :) He still had more when we got home, but not as bad as it was ... lol lol lol .. I was well above my goal... my goal for now is 8000 steps .. and I pulled in 9166 steps .. but I do alot of walking around the casinos when I go .. it's not all the "machines" ..lol lol lol ..
After we left there .. I asked if he could stop at Meijers on the way home .. I wanted to pick up some cherry pie filling, and some spray whipped cream .. It was Saturday and I wanted my ice cream sundae .. lol .. He did .. and I got some lite cherry pie filling .. I made up 2 scoops of ice cream, with a banana, a couple spoons of my cherry pie filling, and some whipped cream .. and enjoyed every single bite .. :)
Out of my entire wonderful day .. the only thing that felt "wierd" .. was being able to go from spending the day up north, to dinner, to a walk, to not getting home until almost 7 .. and not having to stop home to take care of puppy first .. It's been 7 months .. how long does that feeling of 15 years of habit take to disappear ??? but it was just a soft tug last night..
It was a wonderful wonderful day !!!! and I felt soo good when we got home ... (and I had my sundae .. :) )
Today I'll be going over to mom's .. and looking forward to a nice time there .. When hubby took her out shopping she was having another off day .. but hoping she will be better today .. we shall see ..
Tomorrow is back to work .. and NORMAL schedule .. my next planned day off is May 4th... when I'm going to the Stamp and Scrapbooking show at State fair park .. Coming up to my retirement .. I want to get back into my card making, and papercrafting .. and I want to see what the new things are in the craft .. and I'm signed up for a class on beginning caligraphy .. :) and sooo looking forward to that .. I used to do it, but that fell by the wayside as well .. I want to get back into that .. so that's my "next" excitement to look forward to .. and since that will be a Friday --- I'm hoping it won't be as crowded as it would on Saturday .. but we'll see .. :) It's something to look forward to !!! :)
As of tomorrow..
59 working days left
82 day days left
