Food, love and boots, oh my!

Valentine's Day seemed to linger this year. It was beginning to feel like an all week affair. NOT that I am complaining! LOL. Valentine's Day I got my gifts, flowers, card and a box of chocolate. Not much else happened that day as it was not the best of weather and Pat was a bit on the sick side. The next day I received some more chocolate and some tea cups.Monday I got some more tea cups and a teddy bear. Tuesday I got some motorcycle boots . Pat got a matching pair on Wednesday. AND he got me another teddy bear in a cup. I just don't what to do with that man! LOL. All I have to say is, this has been the most loving Valentine's Day ever.

Pat is working new hours at work. He no longer has the weekends off. He is working 4 days a week, scheduled for 40 hours a week, 10 hour days. he did not get his 40 hours in this week. He works 7 am -5 pm on Sundays, then turns around and goes back in at 2:30 pm on Mondays. He is off on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and then works Thursday and Friday and off on Saturday. Saturday is a bust for doing anything because he has to get up at 5:30 am on Sundays to go to work. The only good thing is he still has a job. It is going to be hard adjusting to the new hours.

I am adjusting to not having teeth. I have been able to add a few foods into my diet now. Lo mein noodles will be one thing I will be eating a lot of, along with my creamed soups. Beans are another things I can add now. This morning I had a biscuit with sausage gravy. I put the sausage in a chopper and chopped it up real fine. I also made the gravy a little bit thinner than I usually do so the biscuit could soak it up good and be soft. Tasted like heaven! LOL Smoothies of yogart and fruit will still be my biggest meals . I still have plenty of extra weight that needs to come off.

I am starting to get my energy back and need to get busy cleaning house again. See y'all later


  1. It sounds like a wonderful Valentines week for you! Glad you are feeling better !
    'On Ya'- ma

  2. You're the first lady I've known to get motorcycle boots for Valentine's Day. Nothing wrong with that if thats what you want. Glad you are able to eat more things.
