Good morning to everyone! I'm a little late with my post this morning, but I might still hit the publish button before noon.
How was your weekend? I had two very different days this weekend. On Saturday morning, I took Kat to spend the weekend with her mom, leaving me all alone for the day, since Shane was working out of town. I had a small list of things I needed to see if I could find for cheap at thrift stores, so I headed into Independence, MO, to start a route home that I knew would take me past several thrift stores. I ended up taking my time and browsing in eight different stores (of the 10 that were on my route home). Here's some of the good stuff I found:
$9 for all.
I ended up getting home around 6:00 and Shane made it home from work around 8:00. We spent the rest of the evening just sitting back and watching TV.
Sunday morning, we slept in until around 10:00 (very unusual for us) and then went out for breakfast. By the time we got to the restaurant, they were serving lunch instead, so we both ordered an all-you-can-eat fried shrimp special. I also ordered a side salad. I ended up having just the initial serving of shrimp, but Shane had a couple of full-sized servings. I didn't feel overly full, but when I got home, all I wanted to do was go back to bed, so I did for a couple of hours. I woke not feeling much better than I did before I laid down, and by then, Shane was feeling the same way. We were just generally groggy, a little achy, and in my case a little melancholy. This seems to happen more and more to us (me especially) when we eat in restaurants and I suspect it is reaction to MSG. Anyone else have experiences with MSG sensitivity?
By early to mid-evening, we were both feeling more or less back to normal, but by then, it was too late to get much done. Then, unfortunately, I ended up not sleeping well overnight, so here I am again, starting my week off without much energy.
For the rest of the week, I have a lunch planned with an old friend I recently caught up with on Facebook, I still need to plot out this year's garden on grid paper, I need to keep up with all the regular chores, and it would be nice to get back to work on redecorating Kat's bedroom. There's not much left to be done, but it seems like the last details always take the longest.
What's going on in your neck of the woods this week?
