One More Out Of The Way !

I did really well last night.  I woke up at my usual 3:00, and made myself stay put in bed until I could no longer stand it getting up at 5:00 am.  I truly was feeling like I didn't want to lift a finger or do one dang thing today, but ....

Laundry had to be done, cheap hydro rates on the weekends you know?  Aussies needed my attention, and of course my husband is home all day most usually on Sundays, and then there are appointments that are even made on Sundays now a days .... really????  Yes, really.

I had an appointment at the GBHS-Owen Sound Hospital today at 1:00 pm.  This was great as I was hoping to see my friend, Toni with an "i" too, as she just had knee replacement surgery this past week, actually last Monday.

I had messaged Toni and it was agreed we would meet up at the Tim Hortons by the Hospital for a wee visit before my appointment.  Toni's daughter was going out to get a few groceries, so Toni thought it would be a good idea to go along for the ride to get herself some fresh air.  You know how cabin fever sets in after a week of being cooped up, right?

We headed down the highway ....

... a snowy one I might add, and met up with my friend, Toni with an "i" at the appointed meeting place.  Nevada took a back seat, Rob headed over to Canadian Tire, and Toni and I had our wee visit along with a cuppa tea together.  It was nice. 

You know the old saying, "too much, too soon"? don't you?  Well after I had gotten home I had messaged Toni again to find out the little outing was exactly that for her ... too much, too soon.  But really that is what happens when Cabin Fever sets in.  *smile*  Get better much sooner then later, friend.

Rob did drop me off to my Cat Scan appointment I had for my sinuses.  It took all of 5 minutes to have it done, however he had dropped me off early for my appointment and I hadn't been taken in until 15 minutes after 1:00 pm.  Good thing I had my iphone with me to keep me amused.  One more test out of the way.

While we were in the City, we took advantage of stopping into the Walmart and Food Basics  for a few things, as well as some fresh fruit and veggies.  The produce is much cheaper then here in town at our local Foodland store, so I stock up as I LOVE my fruit and veggies.

We were both hungry before leaving Owen Sound, so took advantage of the $3.00 six inch subs at Subway.  It hit the spot before we headed back home, which we never arrived to until almost 4 pm.  We were pooped by the time we got everything put away and the Aussies taken care of.

Dinner was made not too much later.  The Schnitzel, mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts most certainly hit the spot.

Today was my and Rob's weigh in day.  Rob lost .2 lbs.  I stayed the same, but lost more inches off my waist, stomach and breasts.  Why oh why won't it come off my "child bearing" hips first, I will never know, or my Masterson butt !  It is just the way I am I suppose.  I am still happy with my endeavours this past week towards my goal.

Elizabeth send me some photos of the kids this afternoon.  All five of them, with my Son, Paul, making six.

It was pretty intense as Paul was showing everyone a Corvette racing with a plane.  Check out those faces and that concentration will you ... quite oblivious to anything else around them I would think?

Bandit is quite a busy boy every night when I sit down to do my blog post, by bringing me every toy he has in the house ....

.... more intensity.

That was my day such as it was.  Oh dang I just remember Rob brought up the load of laundry from the washer that still needs hung on the Wooden Clothes Racks.  Is there any rest for oh "wicked me"? Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.


  1. Got to take advantage of cheap hydro...laundry drying by the fire as I type.

  2. I tend to do my laundry on Sunday as well.

    Bandit is of course highly amusing.

  3. I also baked cookies yesterday to take advantage of those cheap hydro rates!!!

  4. Thanks for reminding me I have some washing in the machine to TRY and dry in the house. No chance of putting it out in this rain. Fingers crossed for your CAT scan Cindy. x

  5. Wicked? You? Only if it's wicked to get up so early lol! What a busy and long day you had!


How nice of you to drop around to have a wee visit with me to see what I have been up to from time to time. I look forward to your comments as they add much brightness to my each and every day to know there are such wonderful people out there.
