Monday Madness

Wow, wow, wow what a weekend! It was gorgeous weather wise and I had a wonderful time hanging with my mom and with Dave.

Saturday, my mom and I went shopping to Draper and Damon's. They do not have Plus size clothes in the store - Go figure. You can order them through the catalog and still return them there but the top I was looking at in the catalog is not as nice in person so I think I will keep looking. I was thinking about getting a blazer but not sure. It won't fit all that long but its so pretty. I have some time to think about it. We did some more shopping and finished in the early afternoon. After I left her house I headed over to Mariani's to meet with Dave. We went to Andy's BBQ for dinner. I ordered a teriyaki steak and it was 13 oz. so I cut off a 3 oz. piece and saved the rest. We are going to make a stir-fry out of it for dinner tonight.

So, I got the Adoption papers from Betty (my mom) and waited until I got to the motel room to read them. I was a little shocked and started to cry and Dave calmed me down and reminded me to breathe. I wanted to bring them to work this morning but I forgot to grab them. It does not have her name but it is the key to unlocking all the information. I have the documents required by the state of California to petition the information so I just need to fill them out and send them. I am a little puzzled now about her age though. Betty said she was 20 when she had me but I am not sure now because it said she was married in 1961. As Missa at Losing Ethel pointed out in her comment, it is going to be an interesting process even if I don't find her/them.

Yesterday we hung out by the pool for most of the day. I swam for quite awhile and then went to the room to relax. I am a little sunburned. We did not have to check out until 3:00 p.m. so I took my time packing up. We took off and went and did some shopping and then went to Wing Stop. I have never been a fan of chicken wings. I always thought they weren't worth the effort. Well Dave likes them and I said I would give them a try. I ended up getting the Parmesan cheese ones. I would have preferred boneless but they were busy and we would have had to wait. I liked them! I did not look at the nutritional info so I will have to do that today.

I have an appointment with Grace (Personal Training) tonight right after work. I am not a big fan of Monday's but that was what worked this week. It will be a good way to start the week though. Bosu ball here I come! LOL! Hope you all had a good weekend! Until next time...


  1. I'm so happy that your visit with your Mom was good! I have a recipe for Parm chicken wings that is killer!

  2. Sounds like it was a fun weekend! It will be so interesting to see if you can find your birth mother now that you have the necessary info. Wow.

  3. I didn't get to read your post - because I'm always in a rush it seems! but I wanted to let you know I was thinking about you today and wanted to just come in and say HURRAH HURRAH GO KATIE J GO!!!

  4. I feel the same way about chicken wings. ha ha! I don't really like any chicken on the bone. Glad you enjoyed them though!

  5. I love a good chicken wing ... but not hot ... and there had BETTER be a lot of meat on that little bone! Domino's wings are gluten-free (lots of places coat them in some sort of flour -- booo on them!) and last night Tom was REALLY craving pizza so he ordered himself a pizza and John & I shared an order of plain wings. I know that according to calorielab or someplace like that 2 plain wings are 90 calories...

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you with this whole adoption mystery! Selfishly I hope she ended up in NY so you'd have to come out here ;)

  6. Good luck to you with what ever you decide to do moving forward with your adoption papers.

    I am not a big fan of chicken wings, too greasy for me.

  7. I hope you find the answers your looking for. I'm glad you have the support of your adoptive mom and Dave as you go through the process of searching and maybe finding. I hope it works out the way you want it too. As always I'm here to offer help and support any way I can...just drop a line at my blog....


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
