What a Day

Today flew by. Although it wasn’t incredibly busy at work, there were things that cropped up that needed attention.  By the end of the day, I felt “accomplished”.  Isn’t that the best way to leave work? 9749

Speaking of leaving work,  I started my Jeep and set off down the road. What’s THAT noise?  I rolled the window down to see if it was only on the inside, but to my embarrassment, it was causing a ruckus with the neighborhood dogs!  Then all of a sudden, with one big “sucking” sound, it was gone. I braced myself, but all was ok.  So now I wondered how to describe this noise to Ted?  I told him it sounded like a squealing baked potato in the microwave.  He laughed at that and, since the Jeep is staying home tomorrow and I have to take the Freestyle for inspection, he will see if he can recreate the commotion.

Tomorrow is Halloween and it seems retailers are making the best of it. Although they are expecting a less than bountiful Christmas Season, they are raking in the customers for this Halloween because it is on a Friday. Even Ted and I are STILL in the Halloweeny spirit!  We get to see Nicholas dressed up when Angela and Steve bring him over tomorrow night. Stay tuned for, what we predict to be, some incredibly cute pictures!

Tonight Ted has to work for 30 min. or so and I am going to relax in a bath for a while. Shane… well, he will just have to make do.9642

This morning when I came downstairs at 4AM, my nose was smacked by the smell of salmon and shallots. Not a good thing so early in the day. So I lit a couple of candles, changed and sprayed the trash container in hopes that the kitchen would smell yummy and sweet like a bakery kitchen as opposed to the onion guys trailer at Lowes.  It worked because when Ted came down to work out he commented on how nice the kitchen smelled.  One point scored for Thursday!

As for the workout, it was shoulders today. I went 40 minutes on the treadmill, just over 30 minutes working shoulders and abs then Shane and I went for a 35 min. jog.  He and I both were feeling pretty good, so we went over to MVCC and sprinted across the soccer field which was covered in snow.  We had fun. Shane was leaping up and down and grabbing the leash.  Good times!

Breakfast was 1/2 a grapefruit. 1/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill Steel Cut Gluten Free Oatmeal with 1/4 of a banana and 1 tsp of natural peanut butter, 1 tsp cinnamon.  Protein shake was VPX vanilla whey with 1/4 of a banana.

I plan on doing a Vegetarian Sloppy Joe mix tonight with sweet peas and served on top of mashed butternut squash.  Ted’s comment:  “So we’re having peas and squash”… my response “and Vegetarian Sloppy Joes”…Ted’s comment: “I’ll get something out. I don’t do well with Vegetarian”.   He’s such a party poop!
