Morning all. Back at work today - boo! And brrrr! Chilly today, but no snow.
Happy - Enjoy your hair appointment. Good for you getting some shopping done online. Bf and I bought some gift cards last night to take advantage of the store's special offer - $20 off groceries with the purchase of $100 worth of gift cards. We now have coupons for $40 off groceries, but we have to use it by 12/3. No problem spending $40, just have to remember to do it before 12/3!! Sorry your workday was so slow the other day. How long has this shop been open? Oh, did hubby get things resolved with the cable co??
Ceejay - I laughed too re the image of you emptying the tank bucket by bucket!
Glad it's not really like that. Countdown is on!! Only 3 more days 'til vacation!!
My next vacation day is a week from Friday.
Michelle - I'm sorry the meds caused you problems. I hope the new dosage works better for you. I'm glad you had an expert to talk with about other med options if it comes to that. I suppose a daily meal plan becomes more important than ever now that you're taking this med. I'm glad you and DMIL got to see the final installment of the Twilight series and that you enjoyed it.
Mel - Like Happy said - hope you get just enough snow to make it pretty and nothing more! Mmmm, cocoa! I was so tempted to make a mug of it for myself yesterday after Coal's walk. Come on by and I'll make you some from scratch!
Like that C&H graphic!! And the snow graphic - not ready for more of the real thing, but I'll enjoy it virtually, haha.
Too funny about the seniors picking through the cast-off ornaments and your comment that beggars can be choosers, heehee. Loved that!
Annie - Wow, that went quick - the wedding's this weekend!!!! I hope the weather's nice like it's forecast to be and that the ex's gf keeps her trap shut and plasters a happy expression on her face for the duration of the day. Glad the cream cheese lasagna turned out well. I haven't made lasagna in quite a while - need to do that, bf likes my lasagna. I totally agree - cream cheese makes just about anything better. That or butter
Patty - Sounds like you had a nice amount of family time over the long weekend.
Too bad you worked on your bday! I'm fortunate (spoiled?) that with my bday being 7/5, I almost always have it off because of the FOJ holiday, or I make a point of tacking it onto the holiday.
Hellos to Shad, Ellen and Mary.
Well, back at work and not raring to go quite yet. I'm a bit sore, and that doesn't help.
Bf and I watched a bunch of movies over the weekend. One I already mentioned was "Hot Fuzz". Another was "Carnage", with Jody Foster, John C. Reilly, Christoph Waltz & Kate Winslet - they play parents who get together to discuss the playground conflict of their sons. Great characters, and it was very funny as the story went on and tensions rose. We also caught most of the movie "Goldfinger" on cable - what a classic Bond movie. We also realized we'd never seen the Bond movie previous to this new one - "Quantum of Solace", so we got that dvd from the library and watched that on Sunday. Yesterday we had lunch with bf's mum and then went to see "Skyfall" together. Wow, that was a really good Bond movie. Pretty long, but well worth it. Good story line with a lot of M in it, and Javier Bardem was a great villain!
I did the "Aerobics Essentials" class yesterday morning. Like the "Step Essentials" class, it's low on interesting choreography and newer music...booooring... but if you put your energy into it, you get a good workout. There was some strength work at the end and I used 5-pound dumbbells for that, so I'm sore. (As the only student in the class under 50 -possibly 60 - I felt like I had to keep up with the seniors, LOL) Oh, and my chest is sore from the push-ups done on the ballet bar (barre?). The instructor didn't just do straight sets, but did some where you went slooooowly. So it wasn't exciting, but it was a good workout. I did a circuit class on Saturday, so two workouts over the long weekend was a good thing. (I also got in FIVE dogwalks over the long weekend, starting with Wed. after work.)
I joined the gym near the house last night - it's about 3/4 of a mile away from home, so I hope to get over there on a regular basis. They have a lot of cardio machines, so I hope to do my machine-hopping cardio workout to alleviate boredom. Or maybe I'll be satisfied on one machine if I'm busy catching up on my podcasts.
Long post, many interruptions. Better finish this now before I lose it! Have a great day everyone!
