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's school was great !!! Started bringing me back from my sad place, and back to my happier place again .. :) The door is locked and I'm not leaving for a long time !!!! lol lol lol ..
I was a bit concerned, because I was having a substitute teacher, Matthew.. and I wasn't sure how having a male would work ..lol (watched too many movies, and men were more tough than women ..lol) but he was wonderful .. He helped me with my stretches, found out his birthday is 2 days before mine, he enjoys casino's as well, and he likes Potawatomi the best .. I told him I like the Dells, or Madison best, but Madison doesn't have blackjack so if I want to go with hubby, we go to the Dells .. lol .. and his parents have a great dane .. lol ..
Didn't know that my school would be so informative .. lol .. He taught me new exercises; and it was so easy; and comfortable, even I was surprised .. He was a wonderful substitute .. :)
Yesterday, I had just slipped out of my happy place. More disappointment then mad .. and it's all a fluke, as of yesterday may not even happen .. Mom called on our way home from up north, and asked hubby if he had anything going on on Thursday, and he said no .. We do, we have an overnighter at the downtown casino, just because it was free .. and we were planning on going later anyway, so hubby thought she was going to ask to run some errands, and nope .. she wants him to take her and her friend to the Dells for the day .. You can corral mom to leave around 4, but not sure about Eunice .. but we were both taken aback .. and hubby won't say anything .. I told mom on Sunday, but well -- her memory isn't what it used to be. He said that I could go with, and/or take them, I told him no; because that would be overkill; and well -- I could go and check in, but the hotel is under his coupon .. So -- Frustration took over .. He felt bad, and I explained to him that I wasn't mad .. just frustrated .. :) He mentioned that we have the same setup on Monday next week; so I told myself yesterday "you're just acting like a little spoiled brat" ..
Well -- as of last night, mom hasn't called him back .. so tomorrow may still be on .. lol ..
After I left school, I went to the grocery and picked up a few things, to make up a hearty batch of chili .. Must be good, cuz hubby (and I) put a pretty good dent in it .. I had 2 bowls at lunch, and well -- didn't have dinner .. didn't WANT dinner.. lol lol ...Tasted yummy .. just some home made cooking !!! YUMMMM !!!!
And pretty much I lounged for the day; I was tired (hadn't slept well on Monday night; and getting up early, making sure I wasn't late (earlier appointment) it just caught up with me), and just plain pooped .. and had zero energy !!! YES I did do my nighttime homework ...lol lol ...He gave me the next step up in the band ..
I think I slept pretty good last night, but my brain kicked in again; I ended up turning on the TV and had the volume just above where I could hear it .. and slept gooder .. lol ..
I got up this morning, and was surprised because the scale was a bit more down; even after my huge lunch !! I did my one exercise; and then just lazied .. but finally finishing my other 3 for the morning .. :) and took my shower and came downstairs, to talk to my friends .. :) Yup .. this morning is much more relaxed .. lol ..I'm back in my happy place again !!!!
Today I'm hoping to get the movement going on having my big organ picked up .. and taken out .. My friend did the basics; as I have been wanting to sell it, or donate it or something, but had no clue how to .. I don't do those things like craigs list, and well -- didn't have a clue as to how to crate it up if it had to be shipped through ebay .. ?? soooo I had no clue as to how to start the process ..
Well -- a friend was having HIS organ picked up because he didn't use it anymore; and I sent him the pictures of what I had .. original paperwork, and the organ.. I haven't played it in years, and well -- I believe it needs oil, because the jump starter doesn't connect .. it tries, but doesn't .. He talked to the guys picking up his organ, and showed them pictures .. they stated they may be interested .. He sent me the phone number to contact ...
I talked with hubby, and he's okay with my getting rid of it .. as well as we are trying to downsize anyway .. So ... with hubby being busy today, I was hoping to start the process on this .. I'm excited, and a bit nervous .. but I trust my friend's opinion and what he told me .. so there's a bit of excitement as well .. :)
I'm excited today ... I'm meeting Kim, and Linda for dinner tonight; at the Range Line Inn, which was actually a stop for the underground railroad, and has a humungous amount of history in it; not to mention that it's a very quaint little place .. and Kim is a history buff, and a retired school teacher.. :) I'm looking forward to it, whether or not it's a brain picking session or not ..
Okay --have to get some breakfast .. hubby is home his morning run, I want to have a more substantial breakfast, and a light lunch; so I can enjoy my dinner .. :)
Happy to be back to my happy place, and wishing everyone a great day !!!! :) Hope you find your happy place too !!! :)
