Remote Addiction...

Yesterday was NOT a good day food wise. (At least it wasn't as bad as the "crash and burn" day.) They surely didn't slap me on the wrist this time for eating too little. But today's a new day and it will be good today. I didn't exercise either. And this wasn't a planned day of rest. Well, at least, not planned by me but planned by my television I guess.

For some reason the remote wouldn't work on the TV yesterday at all. I had to do all the turning on and volume controls with the buttons on the side of the thing. I changed the batteries in the TV remote and the DishNetwork remote and that didn't help. At least I have surround sound that operates separate from the television and was able to take the volume up and down without walking across the room. But there wasn't an "input" button on the side that I could find so I couldn't get it into DVD mode. It all started working late last night and I just wasn't in the mood by then.

Eureka!! I've got it all figured out!! Everything went into the toilet because I didn't have my cup of coffee in the morning. That's it, I know it is. No, I'm not trying to quit the coffee, after all I only have one cup a day. I just thought that hot tea would be a nice change, so that's how I started my day. Guess the television didn't have it's high octane caffeine fix yesterday. Yea, that must be it.

Didn't get the snow accumulation that was predicted. I'm so glad they were wrong. I just hope they continue to be wrong. It is predicting snow through the weekend and below zero temps at night but a lot of you are having the same temps. We just have to put on an extra layer and keep our favorite blankie handy to keep warm, right?

I started a new book a couple of days ago and I'm not enjoying it at all. I keep reading it thinking it will get better. It's the "Daniel X" one by James Patterson and it is so different than what he usually writes. I keep hoping that it will get better, I guess that's why I'm still reading it. Gave a whole shopping bag full of books to the Orkin man boy to take home to his grandmother. We don't have a used book store here and I just can't throw them away.

Glad your back on track today. All of us have those days, and just need to get through them the best we can. Keep up the good work! Snowing here in PA now, but supposedly only a dusting.

Not so funny how it all spirals out of control once one thing is out of whack. Hope today is better!

It always amazes me how one or two little changes in our routine can seriously upset the apple cart!

I like to think positively. Your body probably needed that break yesterday...so don't stress it!!!

The remote doesn't work on our TV, stopped working about 2 years ago. We've just kinda gotten used to it, but I remember how frustrated we were when it first happened. What a pain in the booty. Glad to hear your doing OK!! :)

Somedays we just have those off days where nothing goes right and things don't work. I may be having one of those today but I'm not sure yet lol. No I'm not looking for it just wary. It's freeeezing here today and I'm so not used to it. I'm all wrapped up on the side of my bed with my feet propped up at my laptop. I'm not in the mood to do anything...exercise, write, bleh...see what I mean by the makings of an odd day..maybe I'm just being lazy I don't even feel like eating so that's not bad but it's not good. Anywho..lol nuff about this odd day. Hope things are back on track for you today and you're doing well. Keep on keeping on hon and will talk to you soon. Have a blessed day.

Thank you so much for the b-day wishes. That was very sweet!

I tried the tea thing one morning instead of my coffee and my whole day was off! It upset the balance of things! LOL

Hope today went better for you. Don't sweat yesterday! After all, if you don't have the *occasional* day like yesterday, the food logging police would probably lose their jobs. And it would be all YOUR fault!

So really, you were doing a service to mankind. :)

Sorry about the remote. What a pain. Glad you are better today. I'm sitting here with two pairs of socks, two pairs of sweats and still cold. UGH!!
