Week In Review~May 27

I’ve learned my lesson.  I know that I have a good memory…in general.  However, I was very embarrassed at my lack of remembering when trying to do my Week In Review post.  I was there…I should remember what I did.  But considering that it was the kind of week that it was…I suppose I’m lucky that I remembered to complete the post and then link it up.  Almost forgot that tiny step.  But who could forget Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets?!  Trust me, this girl knows how to grab your attention!

Having only moments ago linked to the May 20 edition of Week In Review, I am beginning the May 27 edition.  Fool me once, shame on me…Fool me twice, I’m a nerd.  So here goes!

Week In Review Button Final


–Another morning where I slept in.  I think I’ve finally caught up on my sleep-thank goodness!  This is another dreary day.  I’m pretty tired of it, but I’m not going to let that get me down, I have lots of other things to do that.  Ok, I promised myself I was going to be cheery this week and I MEAN it!!

–There will be Birthday celebrations for my sister Ele later today.  I’m very excited…Happy Birthday, Ele!!  In fact I have to stop typing here in order to call her to wish her Happy Birthday.  I have a special way of doing it.  It’s a special version of the Happy Birthday song that I’ve developed over the years…it’s become known as the Lounge Lizard.  Wish I had a way to record it and share it.  You’ll all just have to give me your birthdays and phone numbers so I can sing it for you!!  UPDATE:  Just called Ele and sang to her.  She laughed through the whole thing…as usual!

–We had a really nice dinner…Chinese Food and Ice Cream…what more could a girl ask for on her birthday?!  We had a lot of fun!


–It would be so good if I followed my own advice.  I started out great and then forgot to keep up, so here I am trying to remember the days.  This week has been a bit of a blur in various ways. Sound familiar…from last week?  It’s beginning to seem like my weeks are not very productive.  If I can’t remember them,  They probably weren’t.  To be honest, I spent most of his week recovering from The Relay For Life last Friday night. It always takes a bit of recovery and that’s pretty much what this week has been about.


–Getting some sorting done today. Still working toward the community yard sale at the end of June.  I’m going to have a Lot to sell! Hoping to get some more work accomplished over the Holiday weekend.

–The weather was starting to get hotter and more importantly, really humid. We decided it was time to turn on the air conditioner.  Good idea, only when we turned it on…it wasn’t cool.   😦    When we finally decided that it wasn’t working and we needed to call PSE&G, it was late evening so decided on a Thursday morning call instead.


–Called PSE&G early and got a 4 pm to 8 pm time frame.  Interesting…after the machine told me my time frame, it also cautioned me that the technicians do not work “after dusk.”  Ok, so isn’t “after dusk” part of our time frame? Hrumph.

–The technician got here a little after 4 pm with a considerably unpleasant attitude.  After giving us a bit of a hard time about out service warranty…First…”Your service contract has run out”…”No, I made the payment”… He goes to the truck to check with his supervisor…”You realize you’re only covered until August!”  Well, SIR…I only need to be covered NOW isn’t that right.  This last part I didn’t actually Say to him, but boy did I want to!!

–Turns out the fan is bad (no wonder the filter wasn’t dirty after a month!) and he’d need to get the part. He said he’d be back on Friday. (Hopefully with a better attitude!)


—The weather is now Frost Bite weather and we have someone coming to fix the air conditioner! Isn’t that always the way.  He finally came back with the fan assembly but he still needs another part.  I wouldn’t talk to him, but Ralph said he couldn’t have been nicer. However, he still needed another part and thought he might be back on Saturday.  That’s ok, because we certainly didn’t need the air conditioner with 50 degree weather!  Only problem was, no fan meant no heat either.  We snuggled under lots of blankets for the evening so we were ok.


—I thought I would freeze as I headed to my Weight Watchers meeting.  Good thing my gloves were still in the car because I needed them.  I continue to be amazed when I weigh in at WW.  I had such a disjointed week, I thought for sure I had gained.  In fact, I lost another quarter pound.  Staying aware of what you’re eating certainly can make a difference.  Gail and Alice each lost 3 pounds so our overall success continues!

—Breakfast out after WW is always a treat.  The diner was swamped, I guess because everyone felt like going out to breakfast for the holiday.  Don’t they know we’re there Every week and need to get our food quickly because of no food before WW?!  😉  We had a nice breakfast in spite of the crowd.

—Gail has been telling me for quite a while that Ralph and I would like the show “Longmire” that’s on A&E.  We started catching up on the show On Demand.  Ralph was sucked in immediately. Me, too.  Not that many good shows on anymore, so I was glad to find this.  Something we both like.


—There’s sun and a beautiful blue sky so far for today.  We’ll be going to my sister Ele’s house for a get together today.  Our friend, Jim is here from Washington and 2 sets of nephews and nieces with be present along with Princess Colette who is 1 and 1/2 and just adorable!  Looking forward to all of that.  I made a HUGE salad for the occasion.  I’ll be taking some veggie burgers to top it off.  One of my favorite meals!

—It’s still chilly in here, but I can deal with it.  I’m about to get on my exercise bike which should warm me up a bit.  Since we never heard from the PSE&G man on Saturday (even though I gave my phone number) I guess we’re without heat or air conditioning until Tuesday.   I don’t mind.  If it get’s really cold, I have an electric heater we can use.

—I’m off to try to make some sense of the day.

I’m looking forward to seeing all of the Week In Review posts from some people who have a clue what they’re doing.

Happy Monday!!

  1. it’s enjoyable to read your thoughts on the week each monday, fran! sorry about the air con drama but lovely to hear about the family times and social get-togethers! happy monday! stay warm!

  2. best birthday ever!!! But as always, the phone call with the song was still the best!!!

  3. Your week sounds extremely productive to me, although a lit annoying what with the air conditioner/heat issue. Bad customer service is always tough, but I’m glad he turned it around, at least with Ralph. Congrats on your WW loss; that is great news. Since you keep losing (yeah), will you be setting a new goal for yourself? I know you blew your previous one out of the water.

    • When you reach 45, you can raise your WW goal, which is what the higher goal was that I hovered around for awhile. This is my original goal from when I started 26 years ago. I am not going to mess with it. I’m just going to try to stay here because I feel good AND I fit into a pair of jeans that had not seen my butt in a LONG time!! Have a great day, Meghan!!

  4. Happy birthday to your sister! Hope your air conditioning issue gets fixed soon!

  5. My goodness, you’re getting serious about this accountability stuff.

    Blessings and Bear hugs!

    • Oh, What the heck, Rob…If I write it down, then I feel like I’ve accomplished something, although from the past week, that was not so much the case. This week, I promise to actually accomplish something! Have a great day!

  6. I’d say your memory is just fine! That service guy is crazy, it’s only May!!!

  7. Happy birthday to your sister! That sounds like a fun birthday tradition. 🙂 Have a great day!

  8. I love these posts. I need to start doing them to help my memory. I’m terrible!!!

    Sorry to hear your AC is still out – hope they get it taken care of before it warms up! The same thing happened to me a couple of years ago with the fan but I haven’t had a problem since!
