Well, the first day of vacation and it was wonderful. I didn't do much of anything. Yea!!!
I got to sleep in (6:45 a.m.), have a leisurely cup of coffee, work out - hard, and shower and clean up. It was great. When hubby got home around 11:30 we headed out to lunch. I came back and took a nap since I drank 3 beers at said lunch :) It was wonderful......
I don't get to laze around and do exactly what I want to very often so it's a real treat when it happens. Usually on weekends I have a list of things to get done before Monday so I'm generally running around. Today was really, really nice.
When I workout, I generally have the History channel on. It's great entertainment and one of my favorite channels. Since I normally workout at 5 a.m. there is some really interesting stuff on then. Anyway, I turned it on today and the show Modern Marvels was on. They were covering candy. Mass produced candy. Did you know it all started with Hershey?? He was the first to make a candy bar and sell it in the US - bastard!!! My point is that according to the Mars/M&M company every person in the US consumes 45 lbs a candy a year on average. When they spit that statistic out I raised my hands in the Rocky victory pose and yelled "NOT ME" I have decided this will be my personal goal. To not consume even 4 lbs of candy a year for the rest of my life. So think about it. If I'm not consuming even 4 lbs a year that means there are people consuming way more than 45 lbs a year to make up for my shortfall. That's scary and that goes a long way towards explaining the obesity epidemic in this country.
In other news, tomorrow we are going house hunting again. Although I'm not ready to put an offer on anything I figure I will be in the next 30 to 60 days. I want to have done all my research and know exactly what I want and where I want to live before that time comes. Maybe I'll stumble across a luxury home in my price range. Ha!! Yeah, right. My price range and luxury don't exactly go together.
Well, that's all for now. It's time to start getting dinner ready. It's been a rough day, I'll probably go to bed early ;)
