Well I’m home with my fur face…it’s been real

So my quickie trip to Boston did not go as planned…that’s putting it mildly.  Let’s start at the beginning.

I drove myself to the airport so that Id have my car when I got home since My Love was not going to be with me.  He’s on a road trip to a convention he was going to out of state.  My fur face was staying at her favorite 2nd home Bark at the World .  My Mom had told me that my Grandfather was in the hospital with pneumonia.  I honestly didn’t think too much of it…..that was my mistake.

I get to my Mom’s and my sister is there with my nieces, my Mom and an aunt or two…kind of odd for a Thursday.  It was said that we needed to go see Pop.  I seem to forget that he and my Gram are 81.  They don’t bounce back like they used to.  Pop was in a BAD BAD way.  It absolutely rocked me to my core…he can’t go yet.  We’ve been very very spoiled just to have them as grand parents for the past 37 years.  Although they’re only “grandparents” they have been so so so much more to Sister and me.  We lived with them for 8 plus years.  The best years growing up.  I have my best childhood memories with them.  My mom worked her butt off all the time and took night classes until she graduated from college.  Pop took early retirement at 55, we were always with them.  Camping every weekend all summer long and a week in the summer, a trip to Disney.  So many of my best memories are living on Eustis St at the end of a dead end having fun for years…..

My grandfather is the main guy of the house…My Dad wasn’t in the house.  Pop was.  Sister and I learned things that are no longer taught.  Respect, honor, love, all the good stuff that matters in life.  You get your butt up if you’re sitting in Pop’s seat.  From Gram I got “You never feel bad for doing the right thing.”  They’re great great people and I’m a better person to have learned life lessons from them directly.

Great news: Pop’s doing MUCH MUCH better.  I did extend my trip for a couple days.  I just couldn’t leave…not like he was.  I broke a few speed limits getting to my Bailey last night.  She’s been sleeping ever since.

I had a TERRIBLE weigh in today.  I had to pay for all of the bad things I ate all week.  I now know that that sucks so I won’t do it again this week.  I’m starting couch to 5 K either tonight or tomorrow 🙂

Here’s some random pics of my past week!!!!  Egg hunt, coloring eggs, Bailey pics, beer and the best gift I’ve ever gotten: I love you to the moon and back bracelet from My Peanut ❤

Super Saturday

I hope all of my readers are enjoying their weekend!

Great news, I now have 15 followers…I’ll brag about it!!!  Thank you, I love you all!

I’ve been having a great week!  I’ve worked out 3 times, each time beating my previous workout!  For the first time in a VERY long time I did 30 minutes on the elliptical!! My Love is having his 1st week back too.  He has gotten in 4 days!

I’ve been networking my butt off!!  Building my and My Love’s empire!!!  Lots of ladies events and coffee dates.  Barnes and Noble is my new “office”.  We’ve been somewhat good with our eating and drinking.  Anyone have any good skinny drink recipes?  Our diet is better during the work week.  It’s easier to eat good if it’s all packed up for you.  I’m going to get it together and plan more meals for more of the week.  Therefore we’ll have to eat the clean meals!  I need to start eating a true breakfast.  I was loving oatmeal and berries for a while…or a protein smoothie.  What do you have for breakfast?  

There’s no date day today, but I’m certainly looking forward to it next Saturday.  Hell, I’m looking forward to Wednesday.  My Love will have his off from the casino days, and those are my favorite days!

So, we’re doing the business, and the fitness and the working out….We are Winning the Day!!

Is anyone planning summer travel?  

 

Monday’s edition of Winning the Day :)

Day 2 back at it!  We ate clean, worked out and had a pretty decent day.  Not bad for it only being Monday.  I was suppose to hit up yoga again, but for some odd reason there wasn’t any.  BUMMER I wanted to do some downward dog 🙂

Tonight I’m hitting the hay a bit early to do some reading.  I’m reading How to Win Friend and  Influence People by Dale Carnegie.  The company I work with is amazing at promoting personal growth every step of the journey.  Maybe my business can’t be what I want it to be until I’m a better person for it.  In that case I’d better go get reading.  

ImageI just wanted to see if I could put a picture in….I DID IT!  

I made a chicken stir fry for dinners tonight: My Love is at his FT job so he takes his to go and mine goes in the fridge until I feel like eating it.  We had it over brow rice and it was quite delicious.  It was chicken, red and green peppers, bok choy, onions and carrots.  It came out really well.  We saw a recipe from The Uncivilized Cave Man: It’s Jalapeño dijon Chicken…are you kidding me??? That’s going to be insanely good!!!  Hopefully we’ll get to make it this week!!  I’ll let you all know for sure!

Well on another front, the Bruins won again tonight!!!  2 wins away from the Stanley Cup!!!  I’m so excited!!  

BOSTON STRONG!!
