It was Andrea and I and Laurie, and 2 other ladies. I had forgotten how much I really do enjoy exercising with friends. Maren and I used to walk/jog all the time at the park back in Florence. It's a great social time :)
After the walk, we headed back home. I ended up staying at Andrea's house for a few hours after, and just visiting. OMGosh, it was fun :) Jimmy and her little boy, Luke, played in the slip and slide, and we just chatted. I'm so glad that I'm making friends here :)
We came home at lunchtime, and after eating, Jimmy and I went in my room to lay down. I put in a movie for him (he wanted the live action Scooby Doo movie), and we both promptly fell asleep. When the movie got over, it went back to the main menu, and the music, which lasted about 1 minute, started to loop. Well, I was having dreams about it - LOL! I was at a friends house in the dream, and accidentally turned on some loud music. I keep going from room to room, trying to turn it off. When I finally found the source, and turned it off, it would start up again in a different room, and I'd have to run and find it again. Funny how our brains incorporate things into our dream, isn't it - LOL! But, I did get a 2 1/2 hour nap, and felt FABULOUS when I woke up :)
The kids got home around 3:30, and the older boys went to play at the neighbors house. We had some YUMMY chicken for dinner. Here's the recipe. Well, kind of a recipe - LOL
1 bag chicken drumsticks, thawed
1 can orange soda
1 bottle bbq sauce
Brown the chicken with a bit of oil, add the soda and the BBQ sauce. Add a bit of water. Cook until done. OMGosh, did my kids LOVE this chicken. They usually don't drumsticks quite so well :) I'm putting this one in the rotation for SURE!
We watched Survivor as a family, and had a good time. They voted off (HERE), which we didn't really like. It was funny, because Joe kept saying, "I'm XXXX". Then, once they were voted off, he's was like "I'm NOT XXX". ROFL! Do your kids do that? Do they have to "be" one of the characters? I always thought it was funny when they tried to assign me one of the Power Rangers to be - LOL!
I did really well on my eating too! Not like the past few nights, where I've been eating chocolate chips - LOL! I ate PERFECTLY yesterday. I went to the cupboards at 9pm after the kids went to sleep, and really thought about making brownies (I know, that's not good), but I took a piece of gum and went back into my room. Aren't you proud of me! :)
Woohoo!!! I'm remembering ahead of time to post my new WordArt packs! Yeah for me. I guess that exercising thing is really paying off - LOL! Click HERE to go to my store. Thanks!
