I woke up with two kittens in my bed this morning, hooray! We cuddled a little and then I got up and my day went to shit because Greg went to fish and I didn't see a note or email as to where he had gone, like he had promised, and when I texted him he got very passive aggressive about it (ugh, I hate it when he's like this!) so now we're annoyed at each other.
Back when we were in Gainesville a couple of weeks ago, I had signed up for the Perkins rewards program in the restaurant (my phone wasn't connecting so I couldn't do it online) and they finally emailed me the 20% off coupon for my next visit but it's coded specifically for that Perkins restaurant. So I guess we'll eat there when we bring her stuff to her next Sunday.
It's "Law & Order: SVU Marathon Day" on ION TV today so I have it on right now but I don't really feel like watching it, it's so depressing and I need a lift. So in a little bit I'll go do the dishes.
I had replied to my French BFF last night, finally. I had completely forgotten to do that when she wrote to me 2 weeks ago and now they're leaving for NYC tonight! She replied to me right away and said that she's not particularly excited about the long plane trip or even NYC itself, but her teens are so happy, she's excited for them. I guess she's a better mom than I am because I told my daughter we wouldn't go to a big city on our trip back in June and we didn't, lol. I hope they had a good time.
I earned the daily Microsoft Rewards credits and I'm trying to meet my 1st Swagbucks goal (75 SB) with videos.
A week from now, my daughter will be moving in to her apartment. I'm sure she can't wait and I'm excited for her, but I'm really starting to get depressed about the whole thing too. Well, actually, I've been depressed about it for weeks. At the same time, I kind of want it to be over already, you know? Ugh.
So I haven't felt like being social recently (a recurring theme with me) and I haven't commented on any blogs, sorry. I had plans to go back and comment on all those posts but, honestly, it's kind of daunting at the moment so I don't think I will. I'm sorry. I'm being totally lazy.
I'm kind of in denial that school is starting in less than a week from now for Youngest Son (as he is too, for sure!) and that I'm going to have to get up at 6 a.m. again. Ugh. Right now it's hard for me to even get up at 8 a.m. because I'm enjoying staying up late. But I do need to get back on a schedule, on my diet, and on the recumbent bike. And I need to get back to doing the dishes every day. Once my daughter is gone, it'll be fewer dishes so I'm really going to try to be good with that.
It's hot and humid here (oh boy, Florida in August isn't for the faint of heart!) but I told Greg that I wanted to start taking walks again so we'll go walking tomorrow. I'm out of shape now so it'll probably only be a short walk. It would be nice to start taking pictures too.
So my (American) BFF and I are both turning 50 within a couple of months of one another so I suggested she and I get away somewhere for a weekend but I have no idea of where we could go. Greg joked that he would send us to Vegas but that's like the last place on Earth I'd ever want to visit (OK, hyperbole much? But still no desire whatsoever to ever go to Vegas) so I need to put my thinking cap on. I'd rather not fly anywhere, also because Greg was joking about buying a plane ticket for my BFF so I need to think of a place where we could go pretty easily from Orlando. We're not beach people, I'd rather go somewhere where we could hike as she likes that too. Any suggestions? My mind is fried after having had to plan that trip with my daughter, LOL.
I spent a while inserting pictures into my recap for the past week and finally published the post.
Greg came home with a huge fish! Unfortunately it's a mud fish and most people don't eat it but he's going to try. Have fun with that, the kids and I will have sandwiches. Well he grilled it and said it wasn't bad, just a tad bland but that there was a lot of meat. I gave him an old bread bag to dispose of the leftovers since he wasn't going to eat them all and we didn't want them.
Then he decided he was going to mow the lawn, woohoo! He mowed the front lawn, it was too hot to do it all.
Meanwhile, I did most of the dishes. I'll wash the flatware with tonight's dinner dishes.
For my lunch, I cut up a new homegrown pineapple to make more fruit salad, so I saved the top to root it outside. I reused a 2016 Sodapalooza cup for this since I'm out of glass jars.
I also made a ham spinach wrap and brewed some decaf hazelnut coffee. I think I'm going to try and read the Nora Roberts book that I borrowed from the library a couple of weeks ago since I'm not so much into "L&O: SVU" today. Update: well it took exactly 5 pages to remind myself that I'm definitely over Nora Roberts and I have no interest in reading her books anymore. Back to figuring out what to watch on TV!
While I was doing the dishes, I let the nCrave videos play and I met my 2nd Goal for the day right as they ran out. Woohoo!
I decided to try watching a new HBO series called "Room 104" while I cleaned my coupon organizer. Oh my, that was a mistake. It was very bad. Greg thought so too. Like a bad YouTube video.
So then we watched the 1st episode of "Westworld". Apparently there was a movie done in the 70s and Greg watched it and said it was very good. The first episode was confusing but we're moving on to the 2nd episode. I cleaned my coupon organizer and filed the new coupons away in it. I had to make a new section for Bulk Nation.
|Princess came to give me moral suppport :)|
For dinner, I heated up the leftover shredded pork roast from last night and the leftover baked beans from a few nights ago. I served the pork on Kaiser buns for my family and split the beans between them. Someone had used a bun for lunch so I had my pork atop tortilla chips, as if it was a taco salad, with some light sour cream and salsa and it really was very good!
Greg and I watched the last 2 episodes of The Great British Baking Show on PBS before he went to play video games. I'm probably going to look at the offerings on HBONow again to see if I can continue to maximize our subscription this month.
Yep, I watched an awful lot of television again today!
