A few days October 29, 2011
Yes, it’s been a few days since I’ve posted. We’ve been BUSY! VERY busy! LOL I think the last time I posted was the 25th, which was Tuesday. I believe that was the day I did some cleaning and then started painting in the foyer. I got the first coat up of cut-in and roll on in the top section. All but one tiny section! Woot! The smell, though, was horrid. It is exterior paint, but we used it inside. It was an ‘Oops’ paint from Wally and well, they had told me in the past that with oops paint, they couldn’t always replicate the color. So, we decided to just use it. So far, it looks great and thankfully it dried fast and the smell disappeared quickly, too. Even faster than what the regular paint does. And the color is fantastic! I really do wish that we knew the same. I’d call it mud clay. Very warm and earthy. Goes great with the other copper walls. I can’t wait to have everything done! I have been so busy I haven’t gotten to get back to it and finish, but when it’s done, it will be GREAT!
Wednesday it was gorgeous out and the hubb’s first day off. So, he was TIRED. We ended up playing out in the yard with the kiddos for the evening after he got his second wind. We ended the night with Scrabble! I had some tea and pretzels… who would’ve thought they’d be so good together? LOL
Thursday was school, Dr., back to school, home, pick-up, then out to the pumpkin patch for a hayride, a couple of pumpkins, mine-shaft slides, tractor peddle cars, rat race tubes, corn pool, bounce house, air pillow, and finally a corn maze! All I ate was a corn dog and some puffed caramel corn. SO good but SO full of cals! I’m sure I burned it off on the tractors! LOL We went out for dinner but I got a salad and only ate about half. But truth is, I was darn near starved! I tried to be on plan, but I’m sure that salad was calorie filled due to the caesar dressing. I will ask for it on the side next time! Then it was home and time for Scrabble with the hubbs again. We had some hot chocolate and popcorn. YUM.
Yesterday was Friday and the Fall Party at school. I was great there! I had a small fiber bar and coffee before getting there and ate NO snacks! However, I had errands to run after that and thought I’d get home to have lunch. I didn’t. And then the hubbs had issues with getting youngest down so I ended up picking up oldest from school and taking him with me for the rest of the errands. It was nice Mommy and oldest time, but he wanted DD so we went and got that. I had a latte and two donuts! :O But that was my lunch. I won’t lie… eating yesterday was horrid! I had 4 donuts total! But I did manage to stay away from the candy other than two bites sized Whopper packs which was 6 small Whoppers. Dinner was chili, but I didn’t like it. I love my hubby, but his chili was NOT good. I had it with some chips and cheese and it was still awful. Too bland, too many beans, and almost slimy. Going to ‘Doctor’ it up this afternoon with some more tomatoes (that I INSISTED he pour in last night after I had some), probably some green peppers, and more water. Hopefully I can perk it up so it isn’t wasted. It just was… bad. BLEH. If I hadn’t been so hungry from only having the two donuts at lunch, I would’ve fixed it last night! On a good note, I did a TON of walking! A TON. Hopefully in the end it all balanced out. But today I started off with a nice English muffin with SB butter, a couple of thin slices of low sodium bacon, and a big bowl of fruit. Plus my coffee. I probably will eat the last donut. Although, maybe I won’t. We will see. I probably shouldn’t! LOL I think it will depend on if I can fix this darn chili! HA!
What is on the agenda for today? CLEANING AND LAUNDRY! I do have a few things to do outside, but oldest is going to help me out whether he wants to or not. He NEEDS to pick up all of his toys in the back yard and put them away. Then I am going to have him feel the ‘ghost lanterns’ with two scoops of rocks so we can put them out on Monday. But more than anything, I need to do some laundry. We are ok and so is youngest since I got all of that caught up, but oldest needs almost everything he owns washed! LOL However, I didn’t want to do it until we got his room cleaned today so I have somewhere to put his stuff! I am going to purge it out today — too many things he doesn’t even wear! Some things are just too small. We have to get it cleaned out — his closet is STUFFED. Today is the day! I did it back over the summer, but it needs it again already. UGH.
As for my weight… I still haven’t checked it and I am trying to decide if I want to check it on Sunday or wait until the official last day of the month… Monday. Or if I should wait and weigh Tuesday AM? I don’t know why I am being so weird. I guess I just feel like Oct. was a lost month so what is the point, ya know? My hormones threw my whole schedule off and then this week has been one thing after another. *sigh* I know I should probably just suck it up and do it. I guess I will Sunday… tomorrow. No point in holding it off. Might as well suck it up and see the number!
Well, I guess I should get off of here and get going with my day. I’ve got the chili on and hoping to get it fixed up for dinner. Going to do a few other things and get started on oldest’s room. Have a great rest of the weekend chicks!
