Happy Sunday -- Mother's day !! a weekend of food .. pick your battles and have a great day !

Sunday, May 13, 2018

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 !! :)

Nooo not really .. I'd be out of food before I'd be out of coffee .. lol lol ..

Came downstairs this morning and my 2 little guys were hiding on me .. On the computer was a note .. "Happy Mothers Day ... TD & Uli"" .. :) and they made breakfast for me .. What a wonderful surprise .. :)

Happy Anniversary to ME !!! 40 years today ... I sit and laugh .. our "friends" were placing bets that it wouldn't last a year ..I proudly stick my tongue out to you and give you the raspberry saaaaalute!!! I'm married to my best friend, and he treats me like a queen .. I couldn't ask for more !!!! Happy 40th my sweet hubby !!! :) and here's to 40 more !!!! (as he runs away screaming .. lol)

Yesterday was a good day .. I played in my room for a bit, and finished one of my make it take it's from the stamping fair ..

I had gotten the crystal done at the fair .. but I unloaded my fun bag yesterday .. cuz hubby was off on a couple of Dells coupon runs .. so I had the day pretty much to myself .. :) I played in my playroom .. I figured out how to "highlight" my embossing that I did with my new toy .. I started working on a card a simple one, and I don't know what it will be for but it's fun getting my fingers dirty and my imagination flowing .. :) but there was too much my brain wanted to do it all .. instead of focusing on one thing .. and moving on .. (like a kid in a candy store .. looking for a sugar high ... lol )

AND I started up a puzzle as well in our bedroom ... I want to get away from vegging in front of the tv in my sitting room doing nothing, in the evenings .. just mellowing .. I want to be able to mellow elsewhere, and actually do stuff too ... lol lol ..

So I just had a mellow day ..

When hubby left, he left me a note that he's "looking for suggestions" .. I texted him that I wanted to go to a mall for a walk before lunch .. He "treated" me to TGI Fridays big rack of ribs .. (and I ate the whole thing) .. We picked it up and brought it home .. because my system doesn't react well to bbq sauce many times .. Thankfully it handled it fine, but I had the quesidea arguement with myself again .. *urp* .. it was good .. YUM YUM !!! Do you know that there is a point when taste just disappears and any further eating is just movement ?? Yup -- I've confirmed this .. lol

We did get a 41 minute walk at the mall .. hubby took me to the mall down the road from TGI Friday's .. I told him he can walk his normal path, (through the stores and all) .. I wasn't going to push myself, but wanted to get a good walk .. I was walking fast enough that I could still talk, but was huffing and puffing ..

We took a bit of a break 1/2 way in between .. and called to place the order for the ribs .. they said 15 minutes .. well -- I told hubby .. one more lap .. and that will be it .. one lap is 20ish minutes .. and he was fine with that .. :) I was proud of myself .. :)

We stopped and picked up the ribs, and headed back for home .. After eating, I got stuck in my sitting room until bedtime .. DARN !!! lol ... but it was a wonderful day !!!!

Today we're heading for Potawatomi in Milwaukee .. and have our free burrito or quesidea for lunch .. Yup -- this seems to be a weekend of food .. but all I can say is "oh well" .. and tomorrow is another day .. and "I" will have control of my situation again .. I'm still getting my walking / exercise in .. so I have NOT tossed in the towel .. just at a difficult stretch for a few days ..

Now if I can just get my sciatic to behave ... Ohhh it's hurting big time this morning .. I couldn't even hide it and hubby was worried, because the only way I can sit down, and / or stand up is by holding my breath .. I told him that it will work it's way loose .. some days just take longer than others .. Once I get to the casino and are able to walk a bit; I'm hoping it will work it's way out .. usually that happens before I come downstairs.. but not today .. today was an ibuprofen day ..

Other than that .. today is going to be a wonderful day !!!!

Happy Mothers day to all the Mom's out there !!! May you have a wonderful day !!!!!
