Happy Friday .. It's here .. my emotions are on my sleeve, as I open the door to a new chapter !

Friday, June 29, 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 ...

My LAST day !!!

What a wonderful day yesterday .. but this morning I'm suffering from overindulgence .. but you know what .. I can't blame anyone but myself !!!! and would I do it again .. *PROBABLY*... lol lol ... Suffering from a sugar hangover, and IBS .. but oh well .. would I have changed anything from yesterday .. ABSOLUTELY NOT .. would I do it on a regular basis .. ABSOLUTELY NOT !!!! lol lol lol ...

Seriously -- Yesterday was a good day .. It started out with watching the guys ripping up our parking lot ...

I asked Jimmy if I went out there and told them I was retiring, could I drive their toys ?? if they would let me .. Jimmy said probably not, because I was wearing sandals .. lol ..

I don't know .. that looked like a lot of fun !!!!

I went to my cellular store, and he looked at my strange situation; and said it was the "secondary" (my home phone) .. He pulled out the sim card and put it back in; and it worked for a call .. but when I got back to work and Ben asked what was going on, I showed him, and it went back to the 617 area code .. so it's till goofy .. so I told hubby he has to take it back to the other cellular store .. I tested it with Kim's phone yesterday .. she's on a different network .. and it worked just fine .. so I'm thinking it's not my phone .. but the home phone booboo ...

As I was telling the girls about that I was going to the cell store .. Linda said "don't buy yourself lunch" .. Rohroh !!!!

So .. I ran out and got that taken care of .. and I came back .. That's when I talked with Ben about what's going on .. (he's good at techy stuff) .. and I just couldn't figure it out ..

I actually did some research stuff, and was looking at "webmeeting connection" websites .. and all of a sudden a parade comes through the back door.. I looked over, and the men were carrying in PLATTERS of food ... They told me to close my eyes, and I played along .. Leonard came over and told me okay .. I could come around the corner .. and there was a table full of pastrami, corned beef, cheese platter, homemade bread, potato salad, and 3 bean salad .... and smack in the middle was a beautiful bouquet of roses ..

and then there was a cake .... a beautiful red velvet cake .. with butter frosting ..

It felt wierd .. they all waited until I made my sandwich and took my plate and only then did every one else dig in ..

And then we dug into the cake .. I didn't take a picture of my piece, but ...

That was pretty much MY cut .. :) Yes -- I had my full capacities .. I knew exactly what I was doing .. I have been soooo reserved on this whole retirement thing .. Sally needed to just go nuts .. and I did .. I enjoyed every single bite !!!!!!

I texted hubby that I wasn't going to have dinner .. because ... *urp*

Today we will probably finish up the leftovers .. yes -- there's about 1/3 of the cake left .. Will I have another mega piece .. nooo .. but I will have some ..

I left around 4 yesterday, and got home .. hubby wasn't home yet, so I had a little time to just set .. (and drink a big glass and a half of my lemon water I have in the refridge) .. and ahhhhh ..

Hubby came home, and did his weighin, and Wii stuff .. I had about 7000 steps from yesterday during the day, and had full intention to go to the music in the park .. I parked in my lot across the street .. and walked around the long way to the park .. and thankfully the weather was actually pretty .. there was a nice breeze .. and I enjoyed listening to the Ooompah OOoooopah of the polka band .. :)

I got home at the end of the night, after getting my wrist buzz about 1/2 way back to the car .. with over 10000 steps .. when I finally took off my fitbit wannabe .. :)


Thankfully with the fresh air.. the sugar overload didn't keep me awake ..

Now we get to today .. This morning, I'm fussing with IBS and sugar hangover .. but I wouldn't have changed yesterday for NOTHING !!!!! but I came downstairs to a "happy retirement party" ...

Oh yea .. You may have noticed there hasn't been many posting for Uli .. but if you notice in the picture there is a little white fluffball in the middle .. Uli and TD have gotten themselves a puppy, and they were told that they had to take care of him .. and have been doing a really good job .. but it's also kept them out of trouble .. lol lol lol ..

I have a few things to show Linda today; and clear out the history on my computer.. and well -- fade to black ..

I know today is going to be an emotional day .. and right now .. I have NO idea what tomorrow has in store for me with hubby .. but I'll worry about that tomorrow .. today I'll just worry about getting rid of this sugar headache, (I see a couple aspirin in my immediate future .. lol) and just enjoy my day .. and cry if I need to ..

With that being said ... I need to get myself together... and get going ..

I wish EVERYONE a wonderful day !!! and make everything you do a positive influence !!!!
