Happy Saturday ... The world slowed down enough that I could just rest for a day . YAY !!!

Saturday, October 27, 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 .

Yesterday my battery was DEAD !!! I got my laundry done, and that was it .. I started working on my quilt and got a panel pinned on and ready to sew on, just in time for hubby to come home with lunch .. and that was it ..

He brought home KFC chicken, and I enjoyed every bite, but afterwards .. I was tired, and couldn't hold my eyeballs open, and decided if I'm going to sit in my sitting room and snooze, I may as well go upstairs .. and that's what I did, and spent the next 2-3 hours laying in bed, with my snuggle on; because I just could not warm up .. (all signs that my candle has been burned close enough from both ends .. )

I was proud of myself that I still got up and did my evening exercises .. YAY ME !!! I think I may have been over zealous though .. BOO ME!!! because I upped my resistance thinking .. well -- I sat around literally hardly moving .. I have to work the muscles .. Nope .. I'm alittle sore this morning; warning me .. "don't push my luck" .. so this morning I went back the basics ... and did the beginning exercises .. :)

That's kind of the nice thing .. she gave me starting exercises that I can always resort back to .. so I can continue .. because I don't know about you, but for me, if I make my "overzealous" booboo's that's the end until the hurt goes away .. but the beginning exercises she gave me, I can still do; because it includes stretching as well .. But I applauded me that I did my nighttime exercises .. :)

Even after having a quiet extremely lazy day; I slept relatively well .. waking up occasionally which I expected, and was afraid of but then turning on the TV for some "brain detourant" and falling back asleep .. I have to say, I feel good this morning .. I feel like Sally is back again .. This is a good thing, because I have today; and then have to hit the ground running again ..

Tomorrow we're taking mom up north so she can have a casino day again, and I can get my last of this sequence of presents .. the one that hubby is waiting for .. the mini oven. He uses ours alot, and this way he'll have a backup .. when this one doesn't work anymore .. :)

Monday morning while hubby is at Wii bowling I want to get my nails cleaned up again .. and then I'll be good until just before vacation ..

Then Monday to Tuesday we have our last overnighter at the casino downtown (just because we can ... lol)

Wednesday I'll be spending with hubby and some friends in Madison for their halloween perks ..

Thursday I'll be spending at the office helping Linda; and well -- we have lunch plans as well ..

And I don't think I have anything for Friday .. Ohoh !!!! ???

Hubby got all of our hotels booked for our vacation .. and he tried to talk about the vacation yesterday to perk me up, but it just wasn't working ... :) but now it's just pack and go .. :) YAY !!!! He was being silly last night, and one of the "discussions" that put me over the edge yesterday (earlier this week) was that he said that our vacation was starting the 11th, and I told him "no .. when you booked it it was for the 12th .. " .. well -- he insisted .. Last night when I was curled up in bed my phone notifies me of a text .. I looked, and he admitted that "I" was right .. lol .. it starts the 12th .. lol lol lol ...

He asked me if I was up to anything today .. I thanked him that he gave me the day; but I feel much better, and am ready for some outtings .. :) So he was talking about going back to the zoo; and get a walk in .. I'm game .. and then he offered to take me out to lunch at TGI Fridays .. I could use a turkey burger .. YUMMMMM !!!! so that may be our activity for today ..and be back by the time trick or treat starts .. :)

As for trick or treat .. our little adventurers saw hubby bring out the bags of candy and well -- had to get in the middle of it !!! Oh now .. little minx's on a sugar high .. we better hide the candy while we're not home, or we may not have anything but wrappers when we get home lol ..

Something tells me I'll be right .. lol lol lol lol .. All these firsts with my little buddies .. they are so curious !!! LOVE IT!!!!!

Moral of my story, is Life throws you some left curves sometimes .. it's all how you handle it .. and I chose to handle it taking a day to regroup .. refresh .. :) and I'm glad I stood firm and just did that; because I feel great this morning, and back to the feeling of taking on the world !!!!

Hope you have a wonderful day .. and make sure you live it to the best of your ability !!!!

    Sally needed to recharge her battery for sure! Glad you did. And good you got in your exercises, but realize not to push it too hard!

    DH’s can be so stubborn, but glad he saw it in black and white and admitted you were right!

    OH boy. ULy on a sugar high – that spells T-R-O-U-B-L-E! But glad they’re enjoying their firsts! It IS exciting.’
