Someone mentioned in a comment yesterday to just not have a splurge day this week. Can't remember who it was, wait, let me go check...Ah, yes, it was JC. You know that option never occurred to me. I just kept thinking what I could do all day long and didn't check my comments until after all the food was placed into my mouth. Duh, that would have been a great suggestion if I had read my comments before hand. Will have to try to do that in the future.
I decided yesterday that it had been a long time since I'd had a grilled cheese sandwich so that's what I had for lunch. Won't do that again because I didn't enjoy it at all since I didn't have any Velveeta cheese in the house and those are the bestest kind. Then I made my burger for dinner a little bigger than I usually do and used REAL mayo on it instead of the light kind. Now those two splurges weren't so bad and I was really proud of myself. Then while the doggies were outside for their last potty break of the night and I was standing in the kitchen waiting for them I hit the potato chip bag. That was horrible and I didn't count chips or anything. Just kept stuffing them in my face. UGH! I hate it when I do that. Didn't eat enough to make me sick (like last week) but believe you me I didn't have just one. So today is the first day of the rest of my life and I will be good! And from now on I won't splurge except on errand days when I can get something out that I don't have around the house.
One of my cats had a traumatic experience the other day. While I was letting the dogs out she darted in the house just as the screen door was slamming. Yep, caught her tail. The screaming started behind my back and to beat it all the tail was jammed. I had to really push hard to get it unstuck. She took off at a run for the loft and I couldn't tell her how sorry I was. About an hour later she came back down and wanted back out. She wouldn't let me near her for a while. But I went outside with her and sat on the steps and pretty soon she came over so I could see if there was any damage and give her some lovin'. She forgave me, whew.
I was awakened yesterday morning by a phone call after only 4 hours of sleep. (went to bed kinda late.) And it wasn't one of those short and to the point calls. Then had to shower and straighten up around here because Orkin was coming. I never know when they will show up so I had to get ready and wait. About 2:00 in the afternoon my eyes were drooping so I decided I'd wait for them on the couch while catching 40 winks. Just as soon as I drifted off the phone rang again. Was the Orkin man telling me that he was on his way and where he was at the time. I knew I had at least a half hour so my head hit the pillows again. As soon as I was drifting off that durn phone rang again. It was the same person as in the morning and couldn't get off the phone in a hurry. So needless to say I was really tired last night and couldn't stay awake to watch my usual TV shows. So I hit the sack at 9:00 PM. I woke up at 4:00 this morning and REFUSED to get up. I sure do feel rested today. Wonder what meanness I can get into today.
