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 .
Oh my what a trip yesterday was .. (and yes .. I seem to have my data speed back .. *WHEW*)
Between wind and rain and then dark; it was a loooooonnnnggggg road trip .. the trip there was okay, with just rain .. The gusty winds started half way up north .. (I was driving) .. it was a workout for my arms ..Darn !! I have been working on my back and belly .. lol lol ..
We finally made it up there to find that they had a 1/2 hour heavy snowstorm .. but thankfully the cars we were passing were full, the sides of the roads were full, but the roads themselves weren't ... and it was just rain when we got there .. Had we traveled about an hour earlier, they said it was a very heavy and fast snow storm that came through ..
So -- we got up there, and mom set the time to come home by 3 .. "so we would miss the dark" .. (ummm it's on a good day a 2 1/2 hour drive .. so we didn't miss the dark)
We had a wonderful day .. besides being super packed .. it helped because I ended up with over 8600 steps throughout the day .. (trying to find machines .. lol) It got very discouraging when I was aiming for a machine; and someone would swoop in and take it .. *grrrr* .. and I was having a bad day. Hubby gave me a little more to play with and I played with a machine, that gave me my entire allowance and alittle more back .. so I saw hubby and gave him my "extention" on my loan; so I wouldn't play it away .. (it was getting close to when we were leaving anyway and I was tired .. soooo that's not a good combination for excess in my purse) ... My day all said and done I spent $20 for a whole day of entertainment .. :) (or frustration....lol )
The main thing was mom had fun .. and she got to have her hamburger .. lol lol ..
At 3:00 I got the car, and we were heading for home .. The wind gusts were still there, and the rain was still there; and thankfully we got to the freeway system before the dark hit .. and by the time the dark came we were into the main stream .. however, I think it's called white line fever .. the only way I could see the lanes; was to watch the white lines .. I decided to go all the way to "our" exit, because I was more familiar with the roads .. It was longer to mom's house, but while I was definately tightened up; I was feeling better KNOWING there was no turns coming up in a surprise .. lol lol ..
I got mom home, and hubby walked her to the door .. it was a lonnnnngggggg ride home !!! We headed for home after we saw that she made it in the house okay ..
By that time I was super exhausted .. We got home and parked the car, and I got out and on the way into the house my back screamed horribly !!!! Hubby assumed it was because I walked more than normal, and I told him no .. it was from 3 hours of driving being sooo keyed up ..
I had some scrambled eggs for supper, and hubby had ham rollups ... and I crawled upstairs .. I decided to pass on my exercises because my back was spazzing so bad .. and crawled into bed .. I don't remember hubby coming up .. I do remember passing the channel changer over to him so he could watch the football game (disaster I guess it was) ending ..
I slept like the dead !!!!! and feel good this morning, but my back is still sassing at me .. so I decided instead of "skipping" my exercises, I would got back to the original square one exercises, which "now" are easy .... but consisted more of stretching as well as exercises .. and I'm happy to say that thankfully it seems to have worked !!!! I'm moving again !!!!! lol lol lol
Today I've got an appointment to get my hair degreyed .. and looking forward to that .. I'm going to have to rearrange my week; because hubby came up with something more fun on Friday than me getting my nails freshened up ..
I have some stops to make after my hair appointment, I changed my vacation nails from my planned Friday to Wednesday in which I'll get myself a pedicure at the same time .. .. it's a Sally Pamper week !!! and I'm looking forward to it !!!
So -- I have my week planned, and I am so looking forward to it. I don't think it will interfere with hubby's plans throughout the week, the excitement is starting to grow ..
I'm looking forward to today; and happy that my back decided to catch up with me .. Hubby is gone on a free money run, and well .. I pretty much have today to just be me .. and pamper with my hair appointment .. :)
I feel pretty
Oh so pretty
I feel pretty and witty and bright!
And I pity
Any girl who isn't me tonight
I feel charming
Oh, so charming
It's alarming how charming I feel!
And so pretty
That I hardly can believe I'm real
*dancing around the house* .. lol lol lol ..
Okay -- so I'm getting my silly back .. :) I'm happy to say that my busy week is building my excitement for the most fun vacation to look forward to !!!! :)
Here's to the start to a PERFECT WEEK !!!!! and have a great day !!!!!
