Just Another Manic Monday

I just titled this post that way so you would get that song stuck in your head...especially you, Ellie. :)

It is Monday. Nothing to see here, move along! ;)

I had a pretty decent weekend. How about you?

Robert and I went out Friday and I shopped at Kohl's while he went to Circuit City to check out the latest movie selection. While I was at Kohl's I got a really cute winter corduroy with a white fake fur collar. I really like it! It was $21, regularly $70, which made me happy. I must've shopped around for 45 minutes there.

Then we went out to eat at Boston Market. We went to a bunch of "nicer" restaurants, but they were packed. So, we went there, and that was fine with me, because it was easy to make healthy choices regarding food. I had roasted turkey breast, green beans and mixed veggies with a whole grain roll. Yum!

Then we went to the mall, where I spent my Build-A-Bear reward certificates on myself. I got the limited edition Spring Bear and put her in a robe and slippers. I got the kids some valentines there as well. That was fun. I'll post a picture of my new bear later.

Saturday I didn't get out of my jammies, other than to shower and put fresh jammies on. I did house cleaning, pet care and cleaning, and scrapbooking all day. Took a late nap.

Sunday...more of the same. Donned a robe and jammies all day, did laundry and housecleaning and scrapbooking. Had a big snow storm, so we were house bound until the salt trucks made it out our way. Ended up sleeping in late before I even started my day.

Watched football (I'm happy for the Colts, as well as Tony Dungy and Peyton Manning, who both seem like nice guys.) and could barely contain my excitement at Indianapolis' awesome comeback. Okay, I yelled and hooted and hollered. I'm not a Patriot's fan because of Cory Dillon and his yucky attitude when leaving the Bengals. So, to that game I say "BOO-YA!" ;)

Soooo, that's that. Nothing else to report here. I monitored my eating, but it was hard to track my exercise other than Friday. House cleaning is good exercise, but not the easiest to track because I'm up/down up/down up/down all day. I know I wasn't taking in enough calories early on, because both Saturday and Sunday I ended up really shaky and weak. So, I want to be aware of that in the future.

Okay, I'm closing this post. It's pretty busy around here with Bipsy gone. I must be productive or I will fall behind.

Have a good day, as Manic Mondays go.

Ha, you are evil. Lucky for you I like the Bangles ;)

Sounds like a relaxing weekend-don't you just love it when you don't have to get out of your jammies? I would live in mine if work would allow it, lol.

I can't wait to see the pic of your new bear-it sounds so cute!

And great bargain on the coat-21 bucks is a steal.

Have a great week!

Well, I am so glad that you and Robert has such a great time and got to enjoy each others company. I love the build a bear shop but I don't go very often. Tim and I keep saying we want to take Tucker. I know he's make a rapper bear now, he's all about the bling and the hat on sideways. Where does a 6 yr old pick this stuff up at?! LOL! Sounds like a lovely weekend. See you soon sweetie!
