A Tough Week

Last week was a busy week. I managed to get some pictures to share with you.

Here are some of the breakfast we served.

I am excited to say that I managed to LOSE weight during conference week!!! Whoo hoo!!! :p That is a huge accomplishment! I ate a salad every day, although some days it was very small. I also ate rather light in the evenings.

I managed to get my grocery list made after finishing the clean-up after service. Then went to lunch with a great group of people at Chuy’s. I didn’t leave the restaurant to start my grocery shopping until about 3:30! Oh my! But I have a jewel for a husband who offered to pick up some things for me. So I gave him the Walmart portion of the list and I took the Sprouts and Aldi portions. I still ended up having to drop by Walmart because I forgot to put a couple of things on his list but was able to run in the door of the garden center, grab the couple of items I needed and run back out.

By the time I got home, got the groceries put away, and made a quick dinner, I was exhausted. We were supposed to go to a star viewing after dark but neither Michael nor I were up to it. I wish I’d have said a proper good-bye at lunch.

Unfortunately Tiffany was still coughing badly on Saturday, so I asked her if she wanted some cough syrup. Michael ran to the local Family Dollar and got both some daytime and some nighttime formulas. Sunday morning she got up and took a shower and fainted! And she had hives break out all over her body! It was a fight all week long. Thankfully, they were nearly gone yesterday and we were both able to get some rest.

Of course, I’m running errands by myself once again but I’ve learned something about myself, I can do it. ;) Yes, I prefer the company, but I can manage it alone. :)

It was so nice to have some cooler weather this week! I made soup twice! We had a chicken tomato bisque and a chicken chili. Both were deemed keepers and are from the Trim Healthy Mama cookbooks.

Well, I better run. I still have a menu and grocery list to make.

Until next time, God bless,

 Michele ºÜº
