A good day.

Yesterday was a great day.

For breakfast I had a smoothie with bananas, strawberries and some almond milk.

Lunch was a raw lunch with scallions, celery and carrots. I also had an apple with some natural peanut butter. And I may or may not of had a small breadstick. LOL.

For dinner I had a large Romaine salad with red cabbage, carrots, scallions, avocado, almond slivers, some crumbled pieces of bacon and some lite blue cheese dressing. And I may or may not of had another breadstick, a piece of chocolate and some white wine. LOL.

I woke up this morning weighing 175.5. Yup. I would say a good day! *Yesterday I was 178.0.

Yesterday a weird thing happened. My boys and I were sitting watching tv and they decided they wanted to watch Power Rangers on Netflix. I turned on the dvd and waited for the tv to respond and take me to the proper screen. Nothing happened. So I thought Netflix was having issues and flicked it back to cable. Again- nothing. Just a blue screen with the input jack listed at the top of the screen and a no signal warning at the bottom of the screen. At this point I thought that the cable was out and proceeded to call and chew out Comcast. ROFL. If you remember all the issues we had with them, you would know why I jumped to that conclusion. Well while I was still on the phone with them, I tried to put in a dvd. It wasnt until the dvd wouldnt register that I realized that it wasnt a Comcast issue, that it was a tv issue. Damn. So I made up an excuse of my kids trying to kill each other to get off the phone- which they were by the way so it wasnt too much of an excuse. I then called up the Geek Squad. Thankfully we have the extended warranty thru them for the television. Warranties are the way to go. Last time our DLP took a dump, we ended up with our brand new flat screen Sony Bravia for free because of the warranty. So please, get them. Anyways, after explaining my predicament and wondering if I was having a REALLY blond moment, the Geek Squad told me that I wasnt crazy and that these tv's are known for software issues. They are an excellent tv but it just needs a software upgrade. The guy was surprised that we didnt have the issue before. He said usually it happens within the first year and I think we have had this tv for 3 years now. Secretly I was hoping that we would have to upgrade our tv. LOL. SOOOO..Geek Squad is set up to come out today between 8-12. They said that it should take 5 minutes or so to upgrade.

Whew. Kids and no tv is not a great combo. They did good last night but I dont think they could take too much of that. And I dont know that my sanity could make it.

Plus last night I was REALLY bored. Thank goodness K came over for a late dinner. It worked out perfectly that yesterday was the night she was coming over and the tv just happened to go out.

So hopefully by the time that Landry gets home from pre-k today the tv will be fixed. It is just way too quiet in the house without some background noise.

Have a great day everyone!

Tip of the Day:


  1. The salad sounds delicious, minus the avocado. Not my thing. It must be the texture!

    1. Love the salad. Will probably still have another one tonight.
