SENSATIONAL SATURDAY !!! Looking for a quiet warm day at home .. Hubby is out and about!

Saturday, November 30, 2019

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..


Had a good day yesterday .. that's 2 days in a row putting myself in uncomfortable situations .. Not sure how much I like this, but I'm happy to say that I felt good after !!!!

We had a wonderful lunch at Brookfield Square .. Red Robin, for my birthday burger .. We got there and the lobby was jammed packed, we checked in and they said it would be a 30 minute wait .. Hmmm But they have an awesome plan set up .. you give them your name and phone number .. and they send a text soooo.. We took a lap walk around the mall .. and just as we were heading back to the restaurant the text came in .. Perfect timing, and I got some stepping in .. :)

We were seated and amongst this chaos ... we had the best server !!! She was happy and smiling, and chatty .. she was just the perfect server !!!! She even helped these old fogies with the automated pay thing that's on the tables .. lol lol lol .. She made the whole "chaos" so much more enjoyable .. :)

After that .. we left, and I was just in a happy place .. Walking in the mall didn't "put me out", even though it was crowded .. and lunch didn't "put me out" .. even though it was NUTS .. I had eaten a banana before we left so I wasn't starving when we checked in .. One of those things that was just perfect and happy that I had the banana .. lol lol lol .. Otherwise the wait probably wouldn't have been as "fine" .. lol lol ..

We left there and came home .. I played puzzle for a good couple of hours .. :) and chatted with mom ... Her knee is still hurting, and she feels guilty .. *sigh* .. but had fun at my brother's for Thanksgiving .. The whole family was there .. and Julie talked to her .. *surprise* .. Julie is Izzy's mom, and well .. she's a strange sort .. I've only met her 1x at the baby shower, and well .. you would have thought I had the black plague, but that's okay .. but mom was surprised that she actually talked to her on Friday .. lol lol ....

And she feels guilty .. Bill and Kathy enjoyed going shopping with her last week, and while Bill stays with mom, Kathy goes off and does their grocery shopping .. and they liked how that worked, and want to continue doing that .. so mom feels guilty because she feels that hubby has done this for so long, and now he's going to feel "pushed off" .. I told her AGAIN .... that hubby isn't that shallow, and is happy that Bill is getting involved as well .. (because it makes me happy so hubby is happy .. lol) and it took me forEVER to talk her out of "feeling guilty" .. but after that it was a fun conversation ... lol ..

We played golf last night, and I gave him a run for his money .. -4 (him) to -3 (me) .. lol lol ..

I crawled into bed around 9:30ish .. when I was falling asleep in my sitting room .. lol lol ... and ended up laying in bed watching TV for another couple of hours .. lol ..

Hubby was trying to get me to go with him at Heaven's awful time of the morning, for a couple of stops .. and I explained to him .. "this is something that you enjoy and I am not about to squelch that, but it's not something I enjoy" .. and he used the comeback, as "but I enjoy doing things with my wife" .. I told him that he enjoys this, as I enjoy walking in parks, and taking pictures .. he enjoys walking in malls. He enjoys doing the black Friday weekend stuff, and I enjoy NOT... lol lol lol .. and he backed off .. It helped that he was dressed and ready to go, and I was still in bed .. lol lol ..

So -- he's out sitting in the car and waiting for the stores to open, frustrated because he can't find his "papers" .. and thrown off kilter .. lol .. What a goofball .. lol lol but I'm SOOO happy that he's home !!!!!

Today .. I have no idea what I'm going to do .. but it looks like it's an icky day out there, so happily I will stay inside if I can .. :) Maybe get caught up on the laundry that he brought home .. :) but it's going to be a quiet day .. :) (I hope

Talk later, and have a wonderful day !!! I'm going to !!!! :)

    Glad you had a good Saturday! Hurray for your birthday burger @ Red Robin’s. Great system texting to let you know when the table is ready so you can do something else while you are waiting! Double kudos to that server! Nice!

    Sorry to hear your Mom’s knee hurts, but glad that she had a good Thanksgiving w/your Brother. Nice that they want to continue to take her shopping! That’s awesome time for your Mom to be w/your Brother and SIL.

    Glad Dh ‘caught on’ with a little ‘help’ that it’s ok for him to do something on his own that he enjoys!

    It IS icky out there. Drizzly, damp, cold. But good for indoor stuff.
