I have decided to take an easy day, today. I am doing minimal housework and spending a lot of time just resting this consarned hip of mine. I do have to do laundry, my hampers are full. I'll get to it...

Later. lol

I did get a couple of pieces of chicken grilled... I am planning to consume one for lunch, today. I am also making chicken for dinner. By the time this day is over I will be clucking. lol

Okay, I am mad at Quaker, right now. I love their Weight Control oatmeal in the morning. It is a no brainer... Portion controlled, easy, goes great with fruit and delicious and filling. But, I am super fussy about flavours. About the only one I really like is the cinnamon and for some stupid reason I can't figure out, they just aren't distributing whole boxes of the cinnamon. I can only find the variety packs which have a mere two cinnamon, four maple and brown sugar (ick... fake maple) and two banana bread... The single most nauseating flavour on the planet. Seriously, it is cloyingly sweet and reeks of fakealoo banana essence. It is nasty. I can't eat it on a bet. I can choke down the maple and brown sugar if I doctor it with a lot of cinnamon and fruit. I want my boxes of cinnamon oatmeal back, Quaker!

Okay, tantrum over.

We went a did a little shopping, yesterday. I was looking for a mirror for over my dresser but I didn't see anything that blew me away so my search continues. I also looked at Ross for a new purse. There were a couple of possibles but in the end, I wasn't willing to pay the prices that were being asked, even at Ross. I think that $60.00 is too high for a plastic and fabric bag in a discount store. I think I will go cruise Dillard's. They usually have nice bags marked down and I can get much higher quality for about the same amount of money. I don't mind some fabric on a bag but I don't really like plastic. I prefer leather. And I am super picky about the style and colour. (Am I beginning to show a pattern, here? lol)

I did end up going to Sally's. Picked up three new nail polishes. They have a sale going, right now, buy two, get one free. I got three delicious polishes for nine dollars and change. I also found a bottle of Sinful Colors Green Ocean (flakies!) at Walgreen's and grabbed a lip gloss there, as well.

On to Big Lots... Still no mirror. I may end up buying a large square mirror to go over my fireplace and move my antique mirror into my bedroom and put it over my dresser. The more I think about it, the more I may just do that. I think that my smaller, antique mirror would look really nice in there and a bigger, more "important" mirror will be better over my fireplace.

I forgot to say how I did yesterday, didn't I? I did fine. 1114 calories. I was actually trying to get more and that is where I ended up. Some days are so weird like that. I try and try to keep the number down and no matter what I do, end up at the high end. Then I have the occasional day like yesterday where I eat and eat and eat and... 1114 calories for the day. lol

It's sunny today and really windy and cooler. We are supposed to get rain, tonight. I like rain. As long as it doesn't snow, I'll be happy. Do not want snow.

Blah, blah, blah.
