Happy Friday !! one more week ... can you believe it ??? I can't !!! after 42 years ...nope can't

Friday, June 22, 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 !! :)

We also have iced for a selection of fresh iced drinks ...

Yesterday was a good day, but pretty much most of the day I surfed the Spark .. not to mention I felt like a BLUMP ... (that's blimp and frump all wrapped up into one . lol) .. It doesn't happen often, but just every once in a while I just am not comfortable in my own skin ... and yesterday was one of those days .. I do believe it was just a bad case of bloat myself ..

I didn't eat much yesterday; but just didn't feel right and tried my "no" but just chose a better choice for lunch ..

For breakfast I had 2 small homemade breakfast burritos .. consisting of a total (between the 2) of 1/2 cup of my egg mixture (egg, pork sausage and salsa mix that I had cooked up earlier this week) ..

Mid morning Kim offered me a coffee from the coffee shop next door, and I got a sf caramel frapp with almond milk .. (so can't blame the milk)

Lois came up with a menu from Kraverz (local custard shop) ... and normally I have a chicken chipotle quesidea ... but I just wasn't hungry .. but she kept pushing, and then said that "she was getting the oriental salad" .. I thought .. SALAD !!! Okay -- I would have one of those .. (but I didn't take my digestive enzymes before so even though I ate slow, I'm sure the salad helped the situation) ..

Well -- I just continued to "blump" through the afternoon .. my jeans that "fit" in the morning, were getting more and more uncomfortable .. my legs were swelling up, and my ankles were so swollen they hurt .. I felt like a BLUMP !!!

I texted hubby that I just wanted a munchie supper if anything .. and he said that he planned a medium supper .. Okay -- I'll do a medium supper .. Well -- I got home, and 1-it was raining, so I really couldn't get outside for a walk (even cancelled the band in the park, which I didn't have any plan on going considering the way I felt) .. and 2-I was hurting and swollen to the point of I just didn't have the oomph to gazelle ..

I got home, and he had picked up a Cousins sub for each of us .. he gets 2, and I get my turkey sub .. and he had a bag of chips out ... so I had a turkey sub and chips .. and it was good, and I enjoyed it .. but I ate it slowly ..

So -- I didn't eat much .. but I just felt *blaaahh* .. and *blumpy* ..

I still feel "bloaty" .. but my legs have gone down ..

I took photos last night because my legs and ankles hurt so much .. I thought I would start a "doctor" file .. Like I said yesterday .. I want to see what happens after I'm done with work; and am not sitting at a desk all day .. Will the swelling settle down once I'm able to get up and move more .. because that's been what all the doctors have said through the years .. Get up and walk more .. sooo .. we'll see what happens after July 1 .. and I'm able to move more throughout the day .. before I go in to see her .. but for now .. I just need to work with what I have ..

I'm going to try to have a day not feeling like a Blump ..

So -- I had a good day, but a quiet evening .. just putting my feet up .. and resting .. Hubby went to the band in the park only to find out that it was cancelled .. I had full intention to going, but it was drizzling, and cold .. I told hubby that I didn't want to go .. I'm one week before my retirement .. I don't want to celebrate with a summer cold .. sooo I stayed home .. in turn they cancelled it, so he was home shortly after ..

I decided to go upstairs and work on my thank you cards .. but I couldn't find my rubber stamp that I was looking for to stamp on the "card" side of my inside panel .. lol .. sooo I got the fronts put onto 6 out of the 8 .. 2 of them the butterflies were being sassy and the glue didn't take .. so they got re-glued ..

So it was a quiet day .. but I just felt blaaaaahhhhhhh !!!! I hate days like that, because ... well .. just because .. lol lol .. Today I will probably be drinking peppermint tea through the day .. to try and alleviate this happening again .. and taking my digestive enzymes before meals for a bit ..

I slept good last night, but having the most bazaar dreams .. thankfully no nightmares like the other day .. I know it's just the changes going on in my life .. and my brain's way of handling it .. but bazaar is an understatement ....

Today I want to run out for an errand during lunch; and I do have a bag of chopped salad at the office, but if I don't have it today, I can always have it next week ..

This weekend is so far going to be a busy weekend .. I don't know what hubby has planned for tomorrow, but a neighboring city has a "beach party" .. along with their water skiing show .. Hubby always likes that.. so thinking of that for this weekend .. then this weekend is Greek fest again .. and I told hubby we can meet up at a public parking lot, and go there in the morning, for lunch (my gyro for the year) and pick up some honey puffs, and surprise mom with an order .. she enjoyed them last year .. and parking at a local park and ride; we don't have to come all the way home, before I go on my merry way over to mom's ..

So it will be a busy busy weekend .. (so far) .. and then I begin my last week of work .. my very last week .. I thought while I was waking up this morning .. One more week, and I won't have to worry about the 'alarm' waking me with a start !!! ..

Have a great day !!! and talk again later !!!!! Welcome Weekend !!!!
