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.
