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 ...
WOOHOO !!!!! I am done with the balancing project .. I'm working on putting together a "Dick and Jane" for how to balance; and plan on dropping all of the information off on Saturday before puppy picnic .. If I'm not seen, I'm not expected to do more .. I'm done .. with only a few exceptions .. but I'm done ...
After hubby got home, he wanted to make a run to Sam's club for more tortillas .. I went with him. I was emotional to begin with; with puppy's 1st anniversary of her leaving, and well -- I was pretty much borderline holding it together with this project. He made the mistake of asking how it was going .. totally innocently; and I had all to do to not have a total meltdown ..but after it was all said and done; I'm glad I was able to talk about it, and he was good .. he didn't try and make suggestions to "fix it" .. he just listened .. and just left me talk it out ...
I was happy to take a break .. and happy with the symbolism of cleaning and sorting out the paperwork; and getting it ready to go back .. it made me happy and more relaxed .. but I will be thrilled when it's out of the house !!!!!
We went to Sam's club, and just took a walk around the store, and got our package of tortillas ... YAY !!!! and came home ..
I'm starting to realize that with my back I'm doing less movement; and have to reduce my food intake ... of course it took me a week to realize this ..lol lol lol but it finally set in. For breakfast I had 2 slices of double fiber bread with peanut butter and banana; for lunch I had 4 pretzel poppers; and a bowl of watermelon; and for dinner, hubby made a batch of smiley fries; and well -- I don't remember having anything after that .. I didn't have much of an appetite, and I didn't do much movement .. and after a few days of "sane" eating, I am seeing the scale go back down.. :)
I am happy to say .. last night I did NOT take a muscle relaxant, yesterday I did NOT take any Aleve, and this morning ... I CAN MOVE !!!!! WOOHOO !!!!!!!!!! Now if I just behave myself for a bit; I should be past this moment in my life once again .. :) and my continuance for that "perfect balance of move and quiet" continues .. lol lol ..
This morning I am meeting happy hubby downtown, for "olfarts day" ... and we are using our free food money; for the buffet .. I'm actually looking forward to the salad bar .. yup -- it's been awhile since I've had my vegetables again, and am actually CRAVING salad .. :)
Between our free money; "olfarts" discount and taking the extra $3.00 out of my points .. the buffet (which is a wonderful buffet) costs us $0 ... WOOHOO !!!! Sometimes it's wonderful being considered a senior citizen .. :)
Tonight AFTER my day is done; I will work on the Dick and Jane series for the reconciliation of accounts in the general ledger .. with reference when all else fails .. call the CPA .. but for today .... I am going to enjoy myself .. !!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm just waiting for a bit until after "rush hour" to drive down .. so I have a bit of time yet .. :) I'll take Beauty because she's parked in the garage, and it's raining out, and I might melt ... .. lol .. and be on my way .. :)
Have a wonderful Tuesday !!!! I'm going to !!!!
