Happy Saturday ... after vacation syndrome starting ... and need to work out the kinks

Saturday, November 24, 2018

Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!!
Sally's Coffee clutch shop is reopened for business .. :)
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 .

Iiiiiiitttttt''''''sssssss baaaaacccckkkkkk !!!!!! but started out today, and started with my beginning stretches again, and now that I've got my shower in, rubbed in some biofreeze .. I made a mental note that tomorrow when I go over to mom's to stop and get a big girl tube of biofreeze .. that helped me so much through my vacation, and while I'm really really sore this morning, it IS helping today ..

I personally think that yesterday I was sore, and just slugged .. I did alittle bit in the kitchen boiling up some angel hair (can be used in numerous meals) and I got all but one load of laundry caught up once again .. Otherwise I sat and slept, and I had to stay very close to the restroom, and we'll leave it at that .. so I'm sure that didn't help much. I DID get my PT exercises in last night before crawling into bed .. so I was happy with that .. and I was happy because I didn't jump right into my "advanced" exercises .. lol ..

This morning my eyes popped open at around 2 again .. and I fell back asleep after an hour or so .. and slept until 8:30 on and off this morning .. but my back is SCREAMING !!! I did do my exercises ... easy exercises, and stetches .. and used the biofreeze after my shower .. Its hurting right now, but part I think is because I had such a sluggy day yesterday .. so we're back to square one .. I'm going to try and work through it from what Jennifer taught me; before I call the doctor to set up more classes ..

The good news is I stepped on the scale and I'm down 3# from when I left .. Hubby is down 2.5 .. I'm sure that will probably change .. as we aren't walking 20000 steps anymore .. even though I'm proud of hubby because he actually continued going to the mall for his steps yesterday .. the man is equivalent to the EverReady bunny .. going and going and not stopping.. I go and go; and well -- I run into a wall every once in a while .. lol ..

Okay -- a little more from vacation .. We went to Sams Town one day; and spent about an hour or 2 there .. but they have their park (center court) decorated for Christmas .. and was so cool ...

The animals were all robotic, and fun to watch .. and the tree and waterfalls were so pretty and soothing,.. the machines weren't playing while I was there, so instead of wasting money, I went and sat in the "park" and just enjoyed the scenery .. We were there long enough to watch the beginning of the show; which really animated the animals ..

Hubby is gone today on a road trip to the Dells .. he offered for me to come with, and I told him I was pretty much done with casinos for a bit .. Seriously .. it's fun, but you walk in one, you've walked in all of them .. I really enjoyed Vegas, because they had all the old machines that I always enjoyed .. and most of THEM played really well .. luck .. maybe .. skill .. absolutely not .. fun ... DEFINATELY ... so I had told hubby that I'm not ready to start running from one casino to another around the state .. it's going to be awhile before I really feel like going again .. :)

So -- what do I have planned for today .. 1- is move around more .. lol lol lol .. I want to go downstairs and see if I can find my Christmas tree in hopes to bring it upstairs for Monday set up .. Not going to happen this weekend like I thought ..

This one was last year .. my SUPER big tree .. but I can't carry that up on my own .. Even hubby has trouble bringing it up ..

And last year I brought up my Angel tree again ..

Nothing is allowed on there but small angel ornaments .. :) It's kinda reduced from 20 years ago when my house looked like Santa's workshop exploded over thanksgiving weekend .. lol .. ending up with 3 trees and all the decor of Christmas ..

The tree I'm going for is my "middle" old old old old old tree .. it's big, but small enough that I can carry it up the steps .. if it isn't buried in the basement .. That will be part of my challenge for today .. is it buried, and is it something that "I" can dig out .. because then on Monday while he is out with his Wii bowling buddies; I will start working on setting the tree up .. :)

I also took out a pork tenderloin from the freezer .. and looking forward to possibly cooking it up today .. so we have some REAL food around here !!!! lol lol lol ..

So .. that's my story for today .. my plans are not to sit as much, clean up my kitchen leftover from last night zero energy; and check out my Christmas tree downstairs .. This will be another first, as I won't have to rush over the holiday weekend, to get it set up .. I can work on it on Monday ... WOOHOO !!! Yes .. I'm still coming up with retirement firsts .. and LOVE IT !!!!

Wishing everyone a wonderful day .. the biofreeze is setting in .. and slowly my ouch is feeling better .. Have a GREAT SATURDAY !!!! I'm going to !!!!
