Tuesday was a busy day as I mentioned it would be and a productive one as well. I had my mammogram appointment at 12:15 (ouch…) and that went well. We had to go to Ralph’s former department to get some reimbursements handled and ask a few pieces of info about our new insurance. That was all handled well. It sounds like I’m coming up on a big “BUT…” I’m not everything went well.
After my appointment, we had some time to wait before we could head to the township building so we went for breakfast/lunch.
Had a Greek omelette with cottage cheese on the side. This was not as good as others I’ve had but it was tasty. Also not happy about the fact that they charged me $2.99 for a side of cottage cheese instead of home fries. Other restaurants just make the switch for you. Oh, well…
After our second appointment and a stop at the bank, we headed home. However after doing a few things around the house, Ralph said he wanted to go out to eat! I’m not that big a fan of eating out twice in one day. First of all…it’s Expensive! Secondly, it tends to lead me off track. I said Ok because I couldn’t handle the moping face. You’ve seen the moping face, haven’t you?!
This was very tasty, but way more Points than I wanted to use. Romaine lettuce, mandarin oranges, avocado, dried cranberries, red grapes, walnuts and gorgonzola cheese. I picked a lime chipotle dressing which was very tasty, but I could tell it was high in points. I did my dip the fork in the dressing and then in the salad trick. That helps. It was very good. 700 Points? Sounds about right!!
I want to share with all of you a new blog. It’s called moms-retreat. It’s written by three young Moms, one of whom I know very well, the other two are her friends. Sue was the best friend of my niece Mary who passed away. Sue is a wonderful girl (still a girl to me) Mom to 5 beautiful children and wife of a (to use her words) “smokin’ hot husband.” She’s been cracking me up with her Facebook posts and I’ve been suggesting she start a blog. I don’t know if my nudging had anything to do with moms-retreat coming to reality, but I like to think that it did. Please take a look. There’s a lot about life and love and young motherhood. I think it’s worth the read.
Not sure what’s on tap for today. Just trying to keep my head above water.
Question for the Universe: Why do some men insist that the hard way to do things is the way things should be done even when the easy way has been offered? I was able to convince one of these men that the easy way was in fact the easy way. I feel very fulfilled right now. I’m so impressed with myself sometimes!
Happy Thursday!! Go read moms-retreat!
