Happy Thursday ... It was a wierd day .. I stumbled, but I did make it !!

Thursday, June 07, 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 !! :)

Was wondering how long it would take him to find the balloon .. another new experience for him .. "Don't float away little Uli" ..

I should start a page for him, and all his antics .. lol lol .. but no .. you'll have to stop here to read up on here .. lol lol ..

Yesterday was a pretty good day .. Pretty much I had the crash that I expected .. but it wasn't as bad as I had expected either .. Kim had a major meltdown, but it was off of her personal life, not work .. Evidently her personal computer got hacked, and they are looking for a house, and she is terrified that her credit rating is going to be blown out of the water .. Understandably, but she called me over for some help; and I walked over, and she started out .. "I just told Linda, and I'll tell you ... " .. and proceeded to a MEGA MASTER MELTDOWN ... All I could do is sit and let her get it all out and offer my arms outstretched for a hug .. (which she never took, but the offer was there) .. Afterwards .. we did the job, and everything was fine .. sometimes we just need that mega meltdowns .. been there .. done that .. sooo many times it's not funny .. but it truly helps focus when there are overwhelming problems on your head .. but that was the biggest problem for the day ..

My backup guy showed up, and we decided to keep the passport drive for the backup drive .. and he took the dead drive .. I told him it wasn't mine, and it's not working, so take it with him ..

I took 1/2 of my leftover dinner from Tuesday .. Yup -- that's how much I brought home .. OMG!!!! Who are you and when have you done with Sally??? lol lol .. and it was yummy ..

I was feeling wierd yesterday .. out of focus, the attention span of a gnat .. I surfed the internet during the day .. I tried to get my focus on for working on my inventory project .. that lasted for about 10 minutes ..

I'm actually looking forward to tomorrow .. I have a whole day of just "being" .. but for today .. I'm meeting Linda at 11 for lunch, and then she's following me to our website company .. where she will learn the behind the scenes of the website .. for "just in case" ... The store has been shut down, and we're working on getting it presentable so there's not that much to learn .. .. So -- while she's training, I'll have 1/2 of an ear on whats going on, but I'll be dealing with changing over the administrative information .. and getting some fresh fish (cleaned I hope) from Jim .. :) He promised me !!! lol lol ..

I left yesterday about 4:30 .. and got home .. all the way home convincing myself to get out for a walk before dinner .. and it was everything I had to do it .. My legs felt like lead weights, my ankles were swollen swollen, and my energy was MIA .. So yes .. that was a mega big challenge, and I told hubby it was only going to be my 25 minute walk .. I went upstairs, and changed into "walking clothes", and got my butt out ... Hubby caught up to me, cuz he was in the middle of a Wii Tennis game .. I didn't want to wait, nor did I want to sit down ... because my mind would change . and change fast ... so I started walking .. hubby takes bigger steps than me, and he knew the route I was going .. He caught up about 1/3 of my way through ..

Normally my 25 minute walk is a T with my home street .. I walk to the end of the street, and turn left .. go downhill for a block, turn and come back up hill for a block, and then it's pretty much level ground for my last block, and then turn around, and come back home .. I do the "T" .. because there's times that I was sore .. and had the escape route, by being able to turn back into our court ..

but I wasn't sore yesterday, however, my legs felt like lead weights .. I didn't think it would be a good idea to do the downhill / uphill section .. so I just turned right .. went down 2 blocks, and came back .. Flat level(er) surface, and no chance to "check out" and come back home .. It was a challenge of the brain !!!! and my energy level !!!! and thankfully my brain won !!! and I got the full 25 minute walk .. :) 2/3's with happy hubby !!!

I had a weak moment after dinner .. which I had the other half of my dinner from Tuesday night ... and of course AFTER I realized .. I could have had a small bowl of frozen grapes ... I reached for the potato chips ... BAD Sally .. but too late .. this is just a confession .. I'm not perfect .. Bad Sally does come out .. lol lol .. Good news is I had a couple of handfuls of chips, and that was it .. I did NOT finish up the bag .. THAT is a Good Sally .. lol lol lol .. I guess I kinda stepped "out of body" for a bit .. and that's what happens ..

Put the chips away, and said "oops ..oh well .. can't do anything once it's into my belly" .. Didn't even enjoy the tastes ?? Yup -- called overtired eating !!!!

This morning I don't have to leave until around 10:30ish .. to meet up with Linda for lunch before our website meeting .. I have the hot water in the sink with the dishes, and our hot water is so hot, that it has to sit before even MY asbestos hands can be put in the sink .. lol ..

and just have a me morning .. Deciding whether or not to go to the band in the park .. this has been a busy week .. I may just pass tonight, and plan for next week .. it will be busy, but not crazy like this week has been .. this week has just been "a slip over the top" ... and I may just pass .. but heck -- the way my brain has been going .. I may just flip flop a few times before tonight .. lol ..

So -- being all over the board this morning .. let's just focus in on ..

ENJOYING THE RIDE !!!!! Have a great day !!!! I'm going to !!!!!

    I’m glad you made the 25 minute walk. It’s sooo easy to say “EH, I’ll do it tomorrow”. I’m thinking we all have a bit of GoodLizzie, Bad Lizzie in us. Of course not the Lizzie part but you know what I mean. It’s good that you listened to Kim’s mega-meltdown. Sometimes that’s all we need, someone to listen & give us a hug.
    Or not! Lol! Uli 🦄 better not get tangled up in that balloon🎈 or who knows where you’ll find him.

    Potato chips are my weakness too. I love the bbq flavor & generally eat the whole bag once opened. Good for you, getting your walk in!

    ULI – the little explorer! Good thing he didn’t drift away w/it!

    Glad that the crash you anticipated wasn’t as bad as you thought. Uh oh on poor Kim’s meltdown. **SIGH** Seriously sorry that her computer got hacked and definitely not a good time when you NEED your credit to be top notch looking for a house. So sorry! Good you let her have the meltdown to get it out of her system.

    Good on the walk. The rest, well . . . . today’s a new day, right!

    Hope it's a good day!
