Hi y’all! Hope everyone had a great weekend. We sure did. 🙂 I will do a post on that when we have the picture they took of us when we met The Fray. They were very tall, and very nice! My daughter and I both got a hug from Isaac Slade and I just couldn’t believe it! Oh wait until you hear the whole story!!!
Yesterday I know we walked close to 4 miles. It was just hot all the way around there in the venue and otherwise. Today we didn’t walk. I got up tired from going to bed at 3AM but mostly because the temp was 95 degrees with a heat index around 111. It was absolutely stifling outside. I do not think that I, in my still heavy state, need to go outside and try to truck in that. I don’t think it would have had great results. One of my meds tells me to stay out of the sun and I do notice when I am in the sun, I get hot, and I don’t mean hot but HOT, fast. But, I did do 1.29 miles at Wal-Mart so that was something. Something is always better than nothing. Also I tightened down the carbs a bit today. I got to make my tea and I found some unsweetened Dean’s tea. Oddly enough, it seems like the sweetener really tastes good in it cold as opposed to how I have thought I have had to mix tea hot. Don’t get me wrong. fresh and hot and sweet tea is still good but I have a serious hankering for Dean’s tea and I discovered today it isn’t just the sugar, it is the way the tea tastes. I can mix it myself as far as sweetening it goes. Just wish me luck that I can find it more often! And, and, and, get this!!! I bought some concert shirts last night. Two of them came in XL for the biggest size and one was a XXL. I still prefer that as I have enough room, but the XL fit! I looked at myself in side view at Wal-Mart today and I look the same as I do in a XXL! That is awesome! I am making progress!!! I just have to get the exercise thing going again and keep with the tightened down carbs. As you can see I do something everyday even if it isn’t the usual.
So the reason today I had to go to Wal-Mart was I needed some stuff, obviously, but I had to go get a new washer. I went ahead and got a dryer too. The ones I have are just not cutting it. It will be easier to get a new set because the service call alone would buy a cheap washer or dryer on sale. This just makes me so mad because since I have had a washer and dryer, for the last 5 years now (it was laundry mat before that I cannot express how much I do NOT miss it), I have run through 4, one of which was given to me so I can get started when Jeffrey was sick. I just hope this set will be awesome.

I have an early morning in the morning and there are tornado warnings all around so I better catch a nap while I can. Have a great night y’all!
