I didn't talk to my son yesterday. He's taking on some big stuff right now - not only moving into his own house, and alone for the first time - but he's also being "loaned out" for his drafting skills and is basically in a new job for the next 5 or 6 months. Double whammy! This job will required LONG hours, like 60 hours per week - so he won't have a lot of time or energy to think about being alone. I asked him to call me last night but I just got a text saying he needed to be up early and would talk to me today instead. He's also finding out that living in the city isn't all that great for the commute. It took him 90 minutes to get home last night! UGH.............. poor kid.
Furniture is getting delivered this afternoon - so no work for me today. I never got a phone call from the delivery scheduler people so I called the store this morning and was told they "left a message on the 19th" .............. well, no they didn't. But anyway - here we are. I shampooed the carpet in the livingroom yesterday so its in pretty good shape. I'm anxious to have a roomful of new stuff! I have never got an entire "suite" of furniture! Couch, 2 chairs (all recliners), coffee and end tables too! Yeah!
I haven't eaten yet this morning. it is 11:25 and I'm just not feeling it - so I will wait until my tummy says FEED ME!! The scales were not at all nice to me this morning -- bounced back up 183. I had hit 178.6 last week. I suppose its normal as I see many others reporting similar bouncing around. I don't like it though - cuz I was so happy to be down in the 170's finally. I did have some salty food and rum over the weekend so that must be it - it certainly isn't due to calories cuz even with my little deviations over the weekend, I still stayed within my total calories limits. Whatever...... can't control it all I guess - just what goes down the gullet!
Walking will have to wait until after the furniture comes. I hope they get here early in the afternoon so I don't have to sit here all day and wait! I hate waiting......... I need to make a run to the bank at some point. But that could always wait until tomorrow. I could walk to the bank.......... need to see how far it is........ okay - its only a mile........ but after thinking about it, I don't feel very comfortable walking to the bank with the cash in my pocket. I'll drive.
We've been checking Baked Potato toppings for the super bowl party. Chili is a good one, I think I'll make one all beef and one with beans - easy enough to add beans to 1/2 the recipe. Getting pumped for the party! We've been doing this for 11 years now! and I know hubby did at least one, maybe two years prior to us getting married. So, it is tradition - and our friends and my family all plan to come to our house. This year I think we will be hosting only 8 - so a nice comfortable group.
Its taking me a while to finish this entry.............
Hunger pangs............. so I'm eating my normal 1 egg + 2 yolks in LOTS of butter nummmers! Better try to get caught up on some more journals. I fall so far behind on the weekends!!!
