Monday Mix

Hope you all had a nice weekend and Mother's Day if you were celebrating it. It turned out to be a nice weekend. Saturday I saw some friends I had not seen in a couple months so we got to catch up and that was great. Then Dave and I went to dinner with my Mom Saturday night to the Outback. I still have half my entree left. Sunday, my mom and I went and saw Water for Elephants. I have not read the book but it was a good movie. It was rather graphic in some parts (I did cover my eyes!) and it was sad but overall I think it was well done. Especially the costumes and dresses Reese wore.

Speaking of books, I broke down and got a Kindle. It will be coming today! What finally sold me was the fact that it is lighter then a paperback. I do most of my reading in bed and it is hard to hold heavy books so I think this is going to be great. Everyone that I have spoken to about it just loves theirs so I am anxious for it to get here. I wonder which book I should read first... any suggestions? I wonder how easy it would be to read on the treadmill...hmmm...

I did well with food over the weekend which was a first for awhile. I did get some walking in but nothing spectacular. I also forgot to put on my Fitbit. I have it set up to post on FB and Twitter and Saturday it said I took 6 steps. I had to laugh cuz it is like it narked on me - not that I only took 6 steps but that I did not have it on. Little bugger!

Dave is having some minor surgery today on his trigger finger. He has my car because his is a stick shift and it is on his right hand. Hopefully the sun will come out so I can go for a walk at lunch time. He will pick me up after work and we will most likely get La Paloma for dinner. He wanted to do a game tonight but I asked him to get someone else to cover. He wants the money but he also needs to take it easy at least on the day of surgery. Until next time...


  1. I loooove my kindle and the ease of purchasing a book whenever and wherever I want. I don't find reading it on the treadmill very easy unless you're doing a good stroll.
    what I do like is the free sample of the book you can view. They give you a lot of pages not just a tease!

  2. Glad you had a nice weekend - we finally had some nice weather, which was nice!!

    Happy Monday!

  3. Isn't that so like a guy to think he can have surgery, albeit minor, and still do something like umpiring a game the same night! Glad he has you to talk some sense into him, lol.

  4. Hello :) Sounds like you had a nice weekend. I went to get my FitBit and there were none in the store despite the online inventory thingy saying they had 4 in stock!! I won't be back in Buffalo now til mid-June ;( Sucks that I have to wait.

  5. I LOVE my Kindle. I just bought Bossypants by Tina Fey. Shelly had recomended it and it's funny. Really funny. Lots of free books as well.

    Enjoy your evening.

  6. Enjoy your Kindle! I think it'll be the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Haha!


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