This has been a very busy weekend. With parents in town, we were able to run off to IKEA on Wednesday and pick up some furniture (end table, coffee table) and some kitchen cabinets for our utility room/pantry. Thursday was nice with family, including Dr. Jay’s brother, Lee, coming to town and the in-laws being here. Friday was chaos, and Saturday was as well. Soleil played goalie for her team and did well. Luna showed off her ice skating skills. Jay and I? We got tickets to "Capitol Steps" as a friend was ill. Then we had dinner and went downtown for the night. Jay had gotten us an hotel room. It was nice. We went to a local dessert place and mostly relaxed. No kids, sleep all night, Ah….
Yesterday, the TV was brought home (man, it looks BIG…50"). We have all of the speakers waiting to be installed. AV guy is a total ass and never showed up on Friday. So…a new AV guy is coming today to see if he can finish the job or not. I hope he can as we have speakers all over the place and the new receiver ready to go…
I hit a frustrating point this Sunday, when I needed a pair of pants and discovered that I can only fit in 3 pairs of jeans. I have been doing the T-Tapp exercises, but I have also been careless on watching my eating habits. I wonder how much working at home is affecting things too. So, I am stepping it up about the exercise (trying to be very good on them) and cutting out a few extras. Not going for seconds, taking half a dessert/sweet instead of all that I really want. The little things that add up. I just want to fit back into the clothes that I already have instead of buying new stuff. It really is a never ending battle, is it not? The American woman and the battle of the bulge. We want our cake and to fit in our clothes too. We want to be healthy, but damn that martini is good. Such a frustrating situation.
Oh well, at least we got to relax for a short time this weekend.
