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 ice for a selection of fresh iced drinks ...
Yesterday was a much better day .. .Hubby was out with mom in the morning ... and I putzed around the house .. cleaning the kitchen; and chatting on here, and just putzed .... and thought ... thought to myself .. "enough is enough" ... I could sit around and be afraid to move, and be miserable, and make everyone around me miserable .. or I could pick up my big girl panties, and get back to normal .. and just deal with the ouch ... I made the first step of signing up for PT, and it's only a week away .. but instead of being physical therapy; look at it as "school" ..
I signed up for school, I'm going to learn something new; that I'm going to be able to apply to my life !!!!! and learn things that I can use for the rest of my life !!!!
Hubby came home from mom's and we had some lunch. He said he wanted to go down to his office and give them money for the football pool .. and I asked if we could go to the big mall in town, and take some walks around it .. and he agreed .. (he needed his steps as well .. lol) so we spent the afternoon together .. spending time with my hubby is a great thing, because well -- after 40 years being together; he is one person that knows me .. really knows me .. and he can (many times) break through my grumpies ... and he did again yesterday .. I felt good and we talked on the ride. He told mom about my problems, and she made mention that if I'm not feeling well; I should feel okay not coming over on Sunday .. I told him no .. I'm going over no matter what .. I will deal with it ..
We went to the mall; and I did 3 laps.. 1 on the bottom level and 2 on the top .. it's nice because hubby goes around the parameter of the big stores in the malls .. Macy's, Penny's, (used to be Boston store, and Sears) .. and I just stay in the mall proper .. so he can walk his fast, and I can just keep my pace (which is almost running trying to keep up with him sometimes ... lol) but we pretty much split up .. and eventually catch up to each other .. We keep track with texting back and forth .. I text him that I'm going upstairs, and then he texted me that he saw me; and blah blah blah ..
Well -- I went down one of the "legs" of the mall .. and got approached asking if I would like to take a survey .. and I was debating, but thought .. it would be good for just sitting a bit (was starting to get tired), and thought the 15 minutes (that he said it would take) and then he locked in my decision when he said I would get paid for my opinion .. lol
Sooo I gave in, and texted hubby that I was going to be out of commission for a bit, and why; and then I did the survey .. it was for Reeses peanut butter cups, but instead of chocolate, made with white cream ... I got past the "advertisement" part .. and got to the taste testing ... It wasn't my cup of tea.. They called it white cream; but the richness of the peanut butter, and the richness of the "white cream" (I say it was very rich white chocolate which I'm not a fan of anyway) it was sweeter than just taking a spoon full of sugar and putting it in my mouth .. the creaminess was nice, but it was kind of overshadowed by the taste ....(and trying to get the taste out of my mouth ...lol)
As I left, I went up to the counter; and they asked me how I liked it, I told them .. Nope.. not for me .. toooooo sweet .. and they gave me my $$ that they promised .. I earned $3 in 15 minutes .. WOOHOO !!!!!
Just as I was leaving hubby was passing by so we met up at the end of the mall section .. and walked back so I could finish my lap.. so all in all, I finished up 3 laps .. :) and I was proud of myself ..
When we left, it was only 3:30 and he was starting to suggest dinners .. I told him, that it was too early to eat; and besides I was still full from our ham rollup from lunch .. (yup .. my food help only lasted a few days .. lol) .. but I told him we could have whatever he wanted .. (he was talking about a Red Robin burger .. *urp* .. because he had an offer with a free appetizer .. I finally suggested a Meijer rotisserie chicken .. and he agreed with that .. *whew* .. So we stopped and picked one up ..
The display case was empty; so we took a lap around the store, and got more steps in ...
We picked up the chicken, and headed for home .. :)
It was a fun afternoon, and definately picked up my mood .... Hubby broke through the grumpies case that was hovering around me, and popped that little dark cloud that was hovering over me .. I felt GREAT !!!!!
Perfect timing, because I have a busy week ahead of me .. and I'm looking forward to it !!!!!
Today -- dinner at the Fox and Hounds with our "wedding party (who's left)" to celebrate our 40th (from back in May)
Tomorrow -- going by mom in the afternoon and looking forward to it .. need some mommy time !!!! (if we can keep the subject off my back)
Monday -- going out to lunch with Leonard ....
Tuesday --Hey .. what's Tuesday ??? Hey -- nothing ???
Wednesday -- dinner with friends
Thursday -- taking mom to the Dells casino for the day (cuz hubby is playing goof .. er .. golf) .. will drive the country roads, so she can see colors changing
Friday -- hey -- Friday I don't have anything either ... lol lol ..guess it wasn't as busy as I thought it would be .. lol
and then the following week Monday .. "school starts" .. *wink* ...
Sooo moral of the story .. I'm done with my pity party, and I'm sore this morning, but I EARNED that soreness .. and I am moving forward.. enough is enough !!!! SUPER SALLY IS BACK !!!!!! WOOHOO !!!!!!!
With that being said ..Here's wishing everyone a great day !!! I'm going to !!!!!
