Best laid plans....

Wednesday, November 17, 2010

Today, I was in office and not much was happening today so I decided to start cleaning because I am having my carpet cleaned on Friday and that means taking everything out of my entire living room/family room/dining room. Good time to clean the base boards, fans and all the furniture.

So my PLAN was to go and get all the cleaners I would need and then get started. One of the cleaners I use is only available 30 minutes away at a janitorial supply (pet smell eliminator FYI) so I drove over there and while I was talking to the cashier (about spark cause she was complaining about being starving cause she only had a salad last night and hadnt had breakfast this morning!) my phone rings and its Frank. He needs me to immediatly go back home, get a something from our shop and bring it to him at the job site (over an hour away in the other direction) so I called Kady and asked her to make me a PBJ sandwich so I could just grab it and go and her Artie was there and loaded up the thing Frank needed in my truck. (she wrote me a cute little note on my lunch bag and even gave me some mini rice cakes desert thingy's....so cute!)

So I ate while I drove and escaped a drive thru situation and met up with Frank on the job so everything got done. When I got home, still quiet in the office so I jetted to the store and got some last minute dinner things and some fresh fruit for a yummy salad. (Dinner tonight was Basa fish filets, corn on the cob, french bread, a bit of baked potato and some of the fruit salad).

So my plan did not work out but on the bright side, both girls are going to be home tomorrow and my neice called and offered to help so we will kick ass on the cleaning tomorrow. (should be done by lunch time which will be convenenient cause they always like to go out to lunch and we rarely go anymore). Then Friday will be here before I know it, my carpets will be cleaned, I will move everything back in and start prepping for the fun part of Thanksgiving.

I talked to my cousin today whos first question was how is Kady. I am happy to report she has not skipped a beat and is at work and being a busy bee as always. (we have appt for Jan. 3 for specialist but I am going to call every day to try to get her in before the end of the year. They said they have cancellations but they dont keep a waiting list so keep calling... Um, they never should have told me that cause I WILL call every day. Believe that!).

Hope you are all well. I am having hot flash marathon for the last week (I got off one of the hormone meds and I am thinking maybe that wasnt a good idea!!) and my weight loss is non existant. Gained 2 last week, lost it a pound at a time, and was up again the same 2 pounds. I am ignoring it and just trying to stick to the plan and keep walking). Dont get too excited, Maia, I still have time! Team Jan!!!

    I bet by now you and the girls are gettin' stuff done! Always goes quick with the added benefit of more hands and more humor in the room. Even though yesterday wasn't what you expected, it sounds like everything went well. I'm not surprised by Kady's can do spirit. She sounds a bit like someone else I know... who could that be? hmmmm... oh, her amazing .... Mama!

    Your day may not have gone as planned, but your plan to make it all work did! Isn't it wonderful that we are so involved in this new healthy lifestyle we think ahead like that (to call ahead and ask someone to make something so we can avoid a drive thru). Awesome work! Yeah, and that scale, you will show it who is boss! Just let it go on thinking it is, because it isn't! You are so much stronger!
