Happy Saturday .. Domestic day today !!! and looking forward to it .. Lotsa monkeys off my back!

Saturday, October 06, 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 ice for a selection of fresh iced drinks ...

Well I found out one place I won't be repeating .. Hubby and I went to "Super Senior Day" ..It was held in the village conference room, and as we were in line to go in, I saw rows of chairs .. CONFERENCE !!!! EWWWWWWWW !!!!!! They had a small circle of tables, and conference chairs set up in the middle .. This was only from 11-2 ... 11-11:15 was visiting the tables, and pretty much everyone was scooping up the giveaways .. and not really talking with the people behind the tables .. *rollingeyeshere* .. :)

I did get something that I'm happy about .. I've been looking for these for ages ...

We got 2 of them ..:)

I had it mixed up ..I always thought that the perfect plate had protein as the biggest slot, fruits and veggies secondary, and then the starch as the smallest part of your plate ... I guess I was a bit backward .. but I was excited about these .. and evidentally more people were as excited about seeing these as I was .. lol .. There was the normal giveaways, and well -- I was pretty well filled up when we were done .. lol ..

Then 11:15 - 11:30 -- was a conference from a local funeral home on preplanning your funeral .. ummm no thanks .. I know mom's is preplanned, and as I don't agree with some of her plans, I'm thankful that she did it. It's all paid for and finished up ... all we have to do is go in when that time comes ... It WAS a nice presentation, but it just wasn't what I needed yesterday .. lol ..

11:30 - .... lunch .. they brought in Jimmy Johns for lunch, and we went and got a sandwich and headed out ..

It was nice because we sat with his friends from Monday morning Wii bowling .. and it was ladies that I just connected with when I was there that day .. Toni is just the sweetest lady, and Fran is so funny .. so the conference wasn't that terrible .. :) I just wasn't ready to sit and listen about the inevitable .. lol ..

We left before the raffle, and after events .. They had free hearing screenings, and free flu shots .. I told hubby that I was going to Walgreens to get my flu shot again .. but I wasn't going to do it until after my PT appointment on Monday .. Next week is a quieter week, "just in case" .. I've only had one reaction to the flu shots, but you know when you plan on that ... it's not going to work out right..

We left and went to Red Robin and had a burger and fries ... and then took a walk around the mall .. only 1 lap .. He suggested it, and I agreed, but I used the Halloween store as bribery .. It was at the END of our walk, and I told him we could go in there, once we finished the lap .. I was only good for 1 lap .. but we did it .. and by the time I got home, and took off my walkometer, it had over 4800 steps .. :)

After that, we went to Meijer so I could do some simple shopping .. apples, eggs, yogurt, cucumber, coleslaw bag, and mushrooms .. We have been eating out so much this week, that all we had in the refridge were a few slices of ham, cheese, and salad mix .. lol lol .. oh and milk and his chocolate milk .. lol .. I don't think I've ever seen the refridge that empty .. lol .. So now I have some of MY food in there for snacking ..

I needed some yogurt, because this is coming up to the season of crock pot oatmeal, and I love my serving with yogurt, instead of milk or cream .. Today I will make up my crockpot oatmeal .. (thats good for fast breakfasts and meals) ...

After we got home, I plopped .. I was pretty much pooped .. I hadn't really slept well the last 2 nights, and I was just tired .. Hubby kept asking me if there was something bothering me .. as I "looked depressed" .. I told him, no .. I'm fine, I'm just tired .. I've had a busy week, and I haven't been sleeping well .. He made the suggestion "well .. there's always something to fix that .. " .. but I think that's been my problem .. I've been going to bed too early (now that it's getting dark early) and it's throwing my little body clock way off kilter ..

I went upstairs, cuz he was listening to the baseball game up in our bedroom, and asked if he was ready for BLT sandwich .. (the sandwiches we took from the conference), and he said no .. I told him we should eat them soon, because otherwise the bread was going to get icky .. and I looked and he had lunched both of them .. *sigh* .. lol .. so I made myself 2 scrambled egg rollups with cheese, and tomato slices for dinner ..

I'm happy to say I didn't go upstairs until after 9, and I crawled into bed, and that was pretty much it .. I was gone .. I had very very very very VERY weird dreams, but I slept .. and slept like the dead ...

Hubby is doing errands on his own today; and I told him I want to catch up on things around here.. I want to catch up on my laundry; and just be domestic for the day ..

I'm having a struggle .. and am trying to find the reason behind it .. I've been waking up in the mornings with super duper puffiness in my fingers and hands, and well -- of course the scale increasing .. I'm thinking that it has something to do with eating out all week this week .. I have less control over the ingredients .. and I don't really think I have ever had a week (while at home) that I had eaten out every single day of the week .. so that's my current challenge .. and I know I'll figure it out ..

I thought it had to do with the Aleve .. "naproxen sodium" ... sodium .. I thought maybe that had to do with it again, because it pretty much started when I took a couple of doses after my wrestling match with my pumpkin ... but I haven't taken any doses for a few days again, and I'm still waking up with puffy sausages... I'm thinking that my shopping will have helped .. more normal foods .. lol ..

So -- today I'm going to catch up with my laundry, and clean up around the house, and make up a batch of my crock pot oatmeal .. YUM...

Tomorrow I'll be posting from the road, cuz I told hubby that I am not going by mom's and he suggested that we run up for my freebees (yup -- I got those coupons again .. and I'm excited about the stuff .. :) )

One thing each week .. I told hubby that I'm not playing anything but the free money ..if he wants to play, I'll bring along a book and sit in the lobby .. He's okay with that; because he wants to get home for the Packer game at noonish .. so we'll be doing a power run tomorrow. It's not until 9 that we can pickup the item .. but I'm good with that .. that means anytime after 7ish we can leave and get up there in time .. and get home by noonish .. :) I think I only have $10 in free money, and he has $5 in BJ free money .. that will be gone in no time ..:)

The rest of them I'll be running up on Wednesdays .. he is busy on Wednesday's so I'll be soloing it .. and I'm good with that .. :)

On that note .. here's wishing everyone a great day !!! I'm going to have one .. it will be a quiet, but domestically fun .. :) I'll get a bunch of my monkeys off my back ..(actually thinking of putting shoes and socks on to keep my stamina up .. :) at least until I'm done !!! lol )

Have a great day !!!! I'm going to !!!!

    Crock pot oatmeal? How do you make that? I’m a big fan of oatmeal. How much does it make?

    Wow! That is a definite DOWNER of a senior day! Goooooood grief!!! Definitely a marketing genius behind that . . . not!

    Love the plates. That’s a positive perk.

    Just got the flu shot today. No problems . . . hoping it stays that way!

    Yes my little bod is getting all confused w/the early darkness, too. But working on it. Don’t want to go to bed too early. Just isn’t restful.

    Doh! Of COURSE then he didn’t want a BLT for supper . . . he ate ‘em @ lunch!

    Glad you got a good night sleep.

    OH gosh, yes! There is sooooooooooo mch added salt and fat to restaurant food, no matter how healthfully you try to order and eat. So, hike up the water to get it flushed out of your system. It’ll help.
