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 !! :)
We also have iced for a selection of fresh iced drinks ...
Yesterday was a goofy day .. I kept myself open for questions working on my information that I gathered on Friday before leaving .. Kim had me come over a number of times, so I got a few steps in .. and between her and Ben questions (Linda lost her brownie points by not leaving information and how to's for Ben for dropship orders .. and thankfully I looked up to see what the email address was that we send to a customer that we automatically pay his credit card .. because the notice popped up, and she had sent them an email saying that she would take care of it when she returned .. Linda .. ya gotta tell us when you do that !!! or change the notices that they won't pop up !! Brownie points lost for her .. lol)
I did find a few things that Kim hasn't been doing (not life threatening .. but has to be done) .. since April .. so we'll talk about that today .. But I'm very impressed at how well she did yesterday .. I told her she has full authorization that if I reach for the mouse .. she has every right to slap my hand .. lol lol .. Most of what she called me over for was to sit over her shoulder; to make sure she did things right .. Maybe I should make her a "Sally on a Stick" too ..lol because I sat there, and she just talked her way through it .. and did fine .. figured out the problems, and solved them ..
I left and met up with Leonard at 10 .. We got the changeover done, and brought him up to unlimited data on his phone .. He is now the king of the account .. I've stepped down from queenship .. lol .. and we finished with changeover by 11 .. and was able to go right over to the restaurant (a few doors down), and I had chinese for lunch .. and it was yummy .. I was surprised, we finished, and it was only 11:30ish .. we sat and had some chit chat over tea, and he made mention that he had to get going up to a customer; and I could finish my tea in R&R ... I told him since it was so early, I may see if my nail spa is busy, and if not, I would go to get my nails done .. and he said .. "go for it" ..so I sent a text to Kim to tell her that's what I was going to do .. so she knew .. (just a common courtesy thing) ...
I decided to go a little patriotic since July is coming up .. and since I don't know what July has in store for me, I decided to get just the tips done .. I can maintain the grow out better with tips .. and clear polish .. until I can get my brain wrapped around "anytime" .. and I had her clip them shorter, because well -- they were getting a bit clumsy especially since I've worked my way into my play room .. and I was still back by my 1:00 I projected .. :) but a busy lunch ..
The afternoon was quieter .. Kim had to leave at 4:30 to go for dress fittings (her son and future DIL are in town ... kind of .. getting married in August, and he plays pro basketball in Spain .. and it's his off season so is home) ... The good news is my plans were "I was going to be there while she was there, and while Ben was there" .. and Ben leaves at 3, and while "the girls" (which now consists of Kim) are there .. so I got to get out at 4:30 .. YAY !!!!
I got home with "intentions" .. Intentions of going downstairs to the Gazelle, since I haven't done formal exercise with the heat as bad as it's been .. my exercise consisted of running around the house and running around the office ....
I got home yesterday afternoon, and didn't call hubby, because I wanted to do my gazelle before dinner .. Well -- I walked in the house, and hubby put dinner in the oven .. (I had texted him a light to medium dinner ... and that I was planning on leaving at 4:30ish) .. My goof ..
Did you know ... that you can get sore and achy from LACK of exercise as much as you can get from OVER exercising .. ?? Yup -- it's true .. I've been walking, and it's almost like my joints are like a car engine .. if the lubication doesn't move through the engine it will freeze up .. well -- I have been lazy on exercise for whatever reason, but we're saying the heat and humidity .. and yes -- I've been moving, but no "timed" exercise .. and I wake up in the morning and my joints aren't lubricating and it takes me time to get the freeze up out ..lol lol ..
Today it's cooler out, and well -- I was hoping that I could go during lunch for a walk, but see that there is still supposed to be rain .. but by tonight, it should just be overcast .. so hoping to be able to get out ..
I walked in the house, and I was trying to figure it out .. the dinner that hubby was making smelled HORRIBLE !!!!! and I was trying to figure out why .. it was just meatballs, and croissants .. The only thing I could think of was that the meatballs were a different flavor .. however, with hubby's "tastes" I couldn't figure out why he would have gotten them ..
I must have had a look on my face, and he made mention that well -- he burned his lunch .. lol lol .. and pulled out Michellanias (sp?) boxed spaghetti and the inside was BLACK .. so that was the smell .. burned tomato sauce .. EWWWWW
He told me that he's used almost a whole can of Febreeze .. lol top the burn smell with the sweet smell of Febreeze .. lol .. Yup -- that was a wonderful aroma. . lol lol .. He said that he put it outside for awhile, (but he brought it back in and threw it in the garbage ... lol) I told him to just take the whole garbage bag outside .. and we'll start to work on the smell ..
Okay -- couldn't open up the windows, because the AC was on and the heat and humidity was unbearable outside; so going to have to suffer with the smell .
Thankfully dinner was good .. My ankles were very very swollen .. some from a quiet sitting afternoon, and most from the chinese lunch .. uncomfortable and painful .. and I didn't push through it .. I sat .. So -- that's my fault, however today is a new day ..
I got up and cleaned up the kitchen ... and part of cleaning up the kitchen while I have a sink full of HOT soapy water .. I walk around and wipe down the counters, the stovetop and the microwave ... I opened the microwave, and the whole inside had a film over it .. I wiped it down, and smelled the dishrag and ewwwww that smell .... the smoke had "coated" the inside of the microwave .. lol lol .. so I did a GOOD wipe down inside that .. and it's clean now .. I went upstairs .. and told hubby what I found, and he just laughed .. I told him he actually reheated it when he cooked up the meatballs for dinner .. lol lol ., His reply was "at least I had a cover on the meatball dish" .. lol lol lol .. what a goof !!!
Yup -- it still smells down here .. but nothing we can do .. turned off the AC, because the temps went down, but I can't open the windows and leave them open, because nobody will be home, and they are still calling for rain ..
Depending on the weather, I'm thinking that peddling tonight will be on the agenda .. however, IF the weather is okay -- I'm taking it outside, for a walk ..I NEED to get back into that habit ... I just seem to fall apart during the week; and the weather crashes .. I have no malls close by, and well -- I've been lazy and not going to the gym .. Sargeant Sally is going to have to come to the surface .. and get "I DESERVE a rest" Sally up and moving in the evening .. I know that even when my ankles and shins are swollen, if I get up and move; it does subside .. which is foolish of my lazy me winning .. lol ..
We all have these struggles .. once July comes about; I will have no excuses .. (so gotta use them all now .. lol) ..
With that being said ..need to get myself some breakfast .. so wish everyone a great day ..
