Day 531 Did some shopping and stopped at mom and dads.

Wednesday, January 27, 2016

I did go to town today. I did a little shopping because I was missing a couple of things I wanted for some soup recipes I want to try. I must feel better I'm thinking about cooking a little.

I took the quilt top to show mom and dad. My dad thinks it's ugly and my mom thinks it's nice colors but the black is a bit overpowering. They had a whole list of things they needed me to do. Mom had a pile of dad's t-shirts that need bleach. I hope I don't ruin them. But I will try to get the necklines clean....then she needed me to send a message to one of her grand kids and thank them for the xmas presents. Did that via my phone. Dad wanted me to make sure he had all his tax papers ready. Now how in the &*(# would I know. I have enough trouble getting my own in order. I did call my pushy brother and he will take dad to his tax appt. I might have to drive dad up to it but he will meet us there and talk with the tax guy. Then dad had gone down to the hearing aid center and had his hearing aides adjusted. So he had a small bill for me to pay. Guess maybe 4 days without going to town might have been a little bit of a mistake.

I did have the feeling I was going to go crazy if I didn't find something to just snack on today. So I got out my bag of potato chips. I use them for casserole tops and stuff like that. I ate about 5 of them and was done with my binge. I am learning that you don't have to eat it all to be satisfied.

There is a dog laying next to me on the floor complaining because he thinks I should be in bed. Jeez....all he really wants is for me to throw his ball some more.

    Glad to hear that you are finally feeling better. I think you needed those 4 days at home to really recuperate.

    I have to go to town today to pick up our mail. The snowplow took the box down and we haven't replaced it yet. I may go look at new boxes to see if I can decide which one to buy. I want one that holds a magazine flat not one of the little ones. When they roll up the mail I tend to drop something before I can get it into the car. A wider box lets me put an old plastic cooler tray that holds all the mail and then I can bring the whole tray inside the car and empty it without having stuff blow away and needing to get out of the car to retrieve it. We have a lot of wind here in the winter and spring and the mail goes flying.

    Hey I'm doing the Realistic Resolution Challenge and it's pretty good. I'm on Day 24 and the article is about finding foods that satisfy your hunger. I think you would enjoy this challenge, and you can start anytime or just check out the article... Tips to Stay Fuller Longer." I know what you mean about being able to eat five chips and being satisfied without binging. I just put away the last two cookies to save them for later!

    emoticon We're learning! Have a great afternoon!
