Good morning. I am a little more rested, but it usually takes me three days to feel tip-top after a trip. We just stay up too late and don't rest much, or eat right, when we go to Vegas.
We are still in the process of buying a condo. The one we wanted had sold the day we looked at it...of course. So, we are "thinking" about our next step. Personally, since the weather is soon to be nice here, I am over Vegas for now. haha
I didn't do too badly this trip. I always take a certain amount to use to gamble. If it is gone I am done. Well, I gambled every day and brought back the same as I took. And I had even bought two nice meals at TGIFriday's out of that cash. DH did almost the same, so we have money to go back and do it again.
I am going to try and get caught up with answering you ladies. Whew, a week is a lot of posts.
Jules- Hugs to your mom, I hope she is doing better. Don't let the grown kids make you crazy...but been there, done that. I almost had a breakdown when one DD was younger...so much drama. But we all survived and I guess it made her stronger because she is a very strong independent woman. (it gave me gray hair and kept me skinny!) I would rather be heavier and happier, thank you very much. LOL..
Cristina- Still busy with the youngster I see. I hope your next open house gives you results. Is the "wallpaper house" still the one you are buying when yours sells?
Sassy- YAY! You are moved and semi-settled. I know you will enjoy the house. Hope you get the washer fixed. Is your kitty doing okay? Maybe the move just traumatized him.
Mindee- So sorry to read about your grandma. Hugs to you and your family. ON the good news side..yay for Tommy's job. Sounds like a good one.
Francie- Glad you are enjoying alone time with DH again. That's cool.
Katy- I am going to have to start counting carbs. or something different. Calories aren't doing it for me right now. Of course, I need to give it a week to get re-covered from this trip.
Kathy- Oh boy, I do not envy you the snow. Sounds like way too much for me.
Susan- Ms. Gaby is growing so tall....hope she didn't show her undies. lol. You are doing great. I wish I was in the 140's.
Robin- Welcome. Hope to chat with you more later.
Today mom goes to the Dr. She got sick one night while we were gone. Otherwise she said she felt wonderful. Her kidney just causes her trouble once in awhile and I guess she will have to live with that.
I have to get groceries and take her to the Dr. and hopefully get back to the ironing board. I told DH yesterday it isn't fair..I wash, iron and pack before the trip. Then I un-pack, wash and iron after. He felt bad and helped me fold and put away things. (he has never done that before..lol)
I had a wonderful salad while gone, it made me think of Susan. It was field greens, strawberries, parmesan and pecans, topped with a chicken breast. The salad was dressed with a balsamic vinegarette. I never thought the vinegar would be good on fruit...but had this last time and couldn't wait to get it again. I doubt if it was "diet friendly" due to the large portion, but I am planning to make a smaller version at home. I am also planning an oriental salad with oranges and almonds. I have to get some new dressings first.....
I am not weighing in until April Fools Day. Really..I am boycotting the scales until then. And I plan to be an exercising fool...well at least the fool part. haha
See I am back and gabby as ever. Have a good day chickies and a good week-end ahead.
