It was good to get home Friday night, even if it was 111 degrees on our deck. I'm not kidding - that was the temperature. The sun went behind a cloud and yippee the temperature went down to 109! We stopped to get milk and bread on our way home, thinking we could survive if we had those two items and the pavement when we opened the car door, well let's just say I closed the door quickly and told DH I thought I'd just wait in the car with the air conditioning on thank you very much. He didn't agree. I swear the bottoms of my feet burned through my shoes!
Saturday morning I woke up with a migraine. Never having had one of those before I inquired of my husband if maybe I'd had a bottle or six of wine the night before and just didn't remember. The light hurt my eyes, my hair hurt and the skin on my head was way too tight. Good grief. A couple of Aleve later I was functioning....slowly. I unpacked some in between rest periods and even made a trip to Sam's. And it was tax-free weekend. Everyone and his brother and two old maid aunts was at Sam's. But with three grandchildren coming on Monday I had to stock up on nutritional snacks like cheese dip and chips, chocolate chip cookies and whole milk. Yes, I did buy whole milk which hasn't been seen in my house since my youngest, who is now 35 years old, was a teen. Every time I look at it I gain 5 pounds.
And speaking of weight I weighed when I got home. Big mistake. Eating in a cafeteria for 9 weeks, where the food is delicious but preserved in sodium, I had gained a bit. I'm having to soap up my hands to get my rings off! I'm hoping that after drinking a gallon of water a day for a month that will come off. As soon as the children have come and gone I'll be back on Weight Watchers. Or fasting, depending on how many of those cookies I eat.
On top of all that our internet is only working from 6:00 - 8:00 a.m. I have nothing good to say about that. You can imagine what I'm thinking though.
But the best thing of all, well maybe the only good thing, this weekend was Sunday afternoon in the sewing room. My trusty Janome was waiting patiently for me and sewed like a dream. Lots of half square triangles were made - 60 to be exact - for an exchange I'm participating in with my guild. The final product is to be presented a week from today (it's a surprise) - yikes! Can you imagine me trying to finish this with a 2 year old, a 5 year old, and a 10 year old? Me either. Wish me luck. Or come over here and help me babysit.
