For someone who likes to blog, read blogs, check e-mail, etc… it’s been rather frustrating! After several calls to the cable company who said it was a local area problem and it should be back up in several hours, well two days has passed when a third call to them and it was fixed in about 2 minutes, just by pressing one button!
So the first two people I spoke with didn’t really know what they were talking about!
So I am way behind, so I will fill you in on my Friday!
I started out with a great smoothie. At Aldi they have this frozen fruit blend called “Fiesta Blend” with mango, pineapple, papaya and I blended that with some orange juice. 120 calories for the smoothie!
With breakfast, I brought to work some honey nut Cheerios, sprinkle of flax seed, 1 banana and 1 cup of skim milk. This breakfast kept me full all morning! 400 calories for this huge bowl!
For lunch, it was my friend Paula’s birthday, we went to a place called The Marion Street Cheese Market, in Oak Park, IL. They have gourmet cheeses, and an upscale shop, and a restaurant on the other side. I’ve eaten there for dinner, but not for lunch.
This is my friend Paula, Happy Birthday!
So there were a lot of choices on the menu….
I chose the turkey and cheese sandwich which was pressed into a panini. It was very good!
My only complaint is that that’s all I got! There are no chips, fries, fruit or pickle, just the sandwich! For $10.00 I would expect something with it. Although looking back, I didn’t need those extra calories anyway!
I hope all you Mother’s out there are having a great Mother’s Day with your family!
My sister and I had lunch with our Mom yesterday, and Mom I just want to tell you how much I love you and thank you for everything you have done for me in my life!! You are the BEST!
