Win a pair of Ugg's

I am going to try and win a pair of Ugg boots. I've always wanted a pair but never had one and last year a friend of mine who has a pair always looked so warm and cozy that I thought I should have a pair. Now Sarah from Whooga is having a contest to win a pair. Hopefully I do this right. LOL . I saw this on one of the blogs I read by Laura Ingalls Wilder and thought "yes, if I don't win them I will at least get 15% off on a pair. I like the short ones in chestnut as pictured. Wish me luck and you too can enter to win by clicking on the Whooga logo in my sidebar.

A little disappointment.......

Well, I didn't get an adjustment today. The doctor's office called me this morning and said the doctor who was to do my fill had called in sick today. She has her own practice and only comes to our office once a week so I guess I will have to wait for an opening now. Darn!! Hopefully it will be next Friday. I went to the gym for my workout and when I got home hubby and I went to our favorite Thai restaurant for lunch. I only ate a small portion of mine and intended to finish it for dinner but I didn't and now it's too late to eat. I have to eat earlier due to my reflux issues. I don't know what we are doing for the weekend. My hubby is working on some projects in the garage so he'll probably do that. I would like to see the movie "The Time Traveler's Wife" Anybody see it? I am going to watch the Neil Diamond special on TV now. Have a good weekend.

I need to get back on the band wagon..

I decided yesterday that since my lapband surgeon had moved away and I got a letter that a new surgeon was about to take his place with two other surgeons helping out until the new one settled in, that I need to make an appointment for an adjustment. I figured it would probably take one or even two months before I could get an appointment. I have gained four pounds and I know I am eating more and also eating things I wasn't eating when I had proper restriction. I still have heartburn during the day until I take my reflux pill and I keep a Tums at my bedside for times when I feel a flareup during the night. But I can't not finish my journey the way I am now, so I decided to make the call and perhaps the doctor I see can shed some light on my dilemma. Well, I was so surprised when I got an appointment for this week. In fact I am going in on Friday. Oh, that's tomorrow. I only hope I don't regret going in for the fill. If they can just add a tiny bit of saline, enough to give me a feeling of fullness again. I will keep you all posted as to how things progress.

Well, our friends from California left yesterday at 4am. They arrived home at 6:40pm. That is a long way to go in one day. I'll bet they were exhausted from the drive. We went to dinner with them as well as two couples who are our friends and live here by us on Friday night and then we all went to our California friends' house that they just purchased so all could see it. They only have the new bedroom set and dining room set as well as washer and dryer in the house. The trip back to Southern California is to pack up the other house and make the move to Oregon.
My friend was glowing as everyone oohed and ahhed over her new furniture. They got to sleep in their new memory foam mattress the last three nights and raved about how comfortable it is. I laid in it to try it out and it did seem to just cradled me in the foam. As much as I was ready for them to leave I already miss them. But yesterday I felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. Life is about to return to "normal" as we know it. They don't expect to be back here before early November.
My hubby took our motorhome in to have the generator looked at on Friday. So far we haven't heard anything yet. I don't think he had a chance to check it yet. We are dreading the outcome of this one. It could be pretty costly. And now as if that isn't enough, the check engine light came on in my car Friday also. When it rains it pours.
I was looking around the house yesterday and decided to get busy washing windows and taking down curtains and washing them this week. All the things that normally get done in early summer I can now do.
