Mel - I hope today is being quiet for you and you've had a chance to catch up on your zzz's. Good news for Jen's speedy recovery.
Annie - Sorry the rain is putting a damper on things. Sure wish you were here to put our garden to rights, LOL. Sorry C had to come back to a lot of work and no paycheck. Boo! Good thing the tax check was there!! Yeh, Good Giggly Wiggly for the class name is probably 2/3 apppropriate - it's a good workout, though there's some wiggly going on (upper arms in particular, LOL). Too busy breathing heavily and sweating to be giggly though!!!
Ouch re the scratched throat. Now what's that rule about how many times you should chew your food???
Hope it's feeling better by now. You sound like you're looking forward to the coffee Wed. morning - didn't you replace that broken coffee machine yet??
Happy - Sounds like you had a nice weekend. Yeh, it's so nice to get outside in the fresh air, especially when it won't freeze your lungs!!
I say donate the book you bought so you can take a tax deduction on it.... I don't know how strong I am even with this exercising, because I felt like I lost a lot of fitness when I had that gap in exercise after I injured my shoulder last summer and again when I had the flu earlier this year. But I'm smaller now and what strength I'm getting is showing more. I made a point of wearing a stretchy top to the kbell class yesterday because up til then, all the instructor probably saw was that I get winded easily and sweat alot, and who knows what he thought was under the baggy t-shirt. So I thought it would be good for him to see that I actually have the start of some ab definition under there, LOL. But I'd definitely need back up in the role of commune security!!! Is there anything that would repel the bear? Maybe you just need one of those shark cages on your deck.... Fingers
that the sump pump keeps on pumping!!
Ceejay - Good for you deciding to scale back the weekend travel. I looked at the sport's page for the Derby results but don't recall the horse's name. Oops. It sure looked muddy. I heard someone on the radio this morning talking about how the jockey's wear multiple sets of goggles and just pull off a pair once they get muddied up. I never knew that.
Michelle - No worry about personals, you've got a lot to focus on right now, just do what you have to do. Hope your back is feeling better today and your day is going well.
Meeting went well and lunch was fine. Weekend was alright. Friday we went to the German deli/cafe for dinner. I had a bowl of goulash soup, a half sandwich and some chips and when I got home I fell asleep shortly after I turned on the tv. Ceejay - it's so easy to fall asleep on the recliner!!!
Saturday was the 4G class, then some laundry and then lunch with bf. He opted to use my once-a-year accompaniment to Hooters that day, and he had the wings and I had the fish sandwich. I don't hate the place, but it's awfully loud. It's very interesting how many families with young kids they get in that place!
After lunch, we ended up going to buy my cell phone, and then we went to the mall to get our new phones Ghost Armored (protects the face of the phone). OMG, the mall on the weekend is a nightmare. So loud and filled with people, I just don't know how people work there. And while we waited for our phones to be done I made the mistake of going into H&M to see about
some dress slacks. That place looked like a tornado had gone through, and it was packed. Ugh. Living only 6 miles away, you'd think it would be a good place for me to shop, but I just can't take it. Next time I go, it'll have to be a weekday morning, or maybe a weekday evening.
Anyway, I was happy to go home and take doggy for a walk.
Sunday was a nice day, but after my k'bell class and a shower, I went shopping for slacks. Ended up at Kohl's - close to home and cheap. About a year ago I noticed they no longer bother trying to make sure the size of clothing on the clothing matches the size on the hanger itself. What a nightmare trying to find my size! I ended up with a pair and when the checkout girl asked if I found everything okay, I told her that their racks were a disaster. She said she'd pass that along, but I don't think she really meant it...
Back home to bf working on moving all my stuff from my iphone to my galaxy. An argument ensued over the whole situation and I won't get into it, but it put us both in a bad mood after that. We did, however, get out for lunch and stopped at the market for a few things afterwards. Back home, I walked doggy, spent some time in the yard with doggy and then it was time for dinner. We had our American tacos to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
Tried to figure out the new phone a bit after dinner, but it'll take a bit of time to get accustomed to it. Technology!!
Nothing planned for tonight. I imagine bf will want to rush me to say it's okay to sell my iphone now, but I'm still not sure I have everything off of it. My photos are saved to the computer hard drive, and my contacts and music made it over, but my calendar is blank and I dont know if my notes are anywhere...have to figure out which app I use to download and listen to podcasts...
Okay, enough rambling. Time to wreak some work out of the day.
