However, the girl asked me to go shopping after dance on Saturday, so I took her to this little florist in town and told the lady behind the counter she was getting flowers for *her* and pointed at me. So I was sent back outside. She chose my flowers & they got wrapped up, and then I had to go back in to pay. Since I used the debit card from the checking account, I feel that hubby paid.
So Sunday, she gave me the flowers and I was pleasantly surprised at her choice. Very nice! They're in a tea cup with saucer and came with a package of raspberry tea.
Yesterday afternoon we went over to Mom's for Chinese food. "Wonderful Honey Chicken" was not my best option, but DAMN it was good. And I tracked it. Me & my sisters went in together to get mom a new patio set - she needed one desperately. Her old picnic table was horrible beyond description. She was surprised & delighted with it. Although I don't know how she managed to not see BIL Dave, Randy & my niece's boyfriend waving the brightly striped umbrella around outside the kitchen window while installing it.
I found a new toy today! First of all, special thanks to my FB friend, Bridget, who has been posting maps of her daily walks. I got intrigued and sent her a message about it. Come to find out - she uses a free app on her iPhone called MapMyWalk and it keeps track of where and how far you walk, the time and your speed per mile and also calories burned. I immediately installed it, grabbed my co-worker and we took a walk.
Today's walk - for a closer look
Pretty cool! I am actually excited about this! I'm having a hard time with my eating choices, so maybe I'll concentrate on exercise for a while and maybe the 2 will finally click back together.
I won't get another walk in tonight since I NEED to get the grass cut. The poor dog would get lost if it weren't for him being on a run. Maybe I'll keep my phone with me while I'm mowing - that should be pretty entertaining with all the back & forth I do. Actually - I like that idea! We have a double lot and easily takes 90 minutes to 2 hours to cut it. I'm sort of curious to find out how far I walk. I know I'll rack up some serious WW activity points.
Hope you all have a great day!
