Friday when I got home from work Dean & I went shopping. We needed to pick up some things for the cruise & we needed to buy another modem. When Dean got home from work Wednesday our modem had died. He went to Radio Shack & bought one & spent several hours trying to get it to work with no luck. Off to Best Buy we went. The little sales guy sounded like he new what he was talking about & assured us this would work. Yeh, not so much. Back to Radio Shack & we have internet again. 3rd time was the charm! Yay!
We ate at Plucker's. I had the BBQ nachos. OMG, soooo good!! They had grilled chicken, BBQ sauce, rotel & onions. Loved them. Not diet friendly but when you're at a place that specializes in wings you take what you get.
Next up was Ulta. Since I've decided to go with my real nails I needed new polish.
My friend Wendy told me about this great stuff for my lips.
Saturday we spent the day at Dean's parents & had lunch. We went to Mass & then did a little more shopping. I'm trying to find a swimsuit for less than $100. Absolutely no luck so I'll be sucking it up & going back to Dillard's this week.
I've said before about how unimpressed I am with Target. Well, it was awful in there Saturday night. Shelves weren't stocked, it was dirty. I can honestly say it was worse than Walmart & y'all know how I hate Walmart. UGH! Speaking of Walmart, I had to stop in there yesterday to get a few things that Target didn't have & I saw a lady doing her grocery shopping in a full length mink coat! Yes, it was freezing yesterday. I'm not sure it made it to 50 degrees but a mink coat to shop at Walmart? Really?? The highlight of the Target trip was this
I woke up during the very early morning hours Saturday & had a HORRIBLE sore throat. Lovely. I knew what was next, the ear aches & then I wouldn't be able to breathe. Stupid sinuses. I took Mucinex, drank lots of hot coffee & tea & was ok. Not great but I was able to function. By Saturday night the ears had started so when I got up yesterday I went to the after hours clinic. I need to be well. We leave Sunday on our cruise & I've hardly even thought about what I'm bringing much less start to pack. UGH! Of course I have a sinus infection & fluid in my ears. I let them give me a steroid shot. Normally, I don't because they keep me awake for days but I need to be well so I sucked it up. I also am on 10 days of antibiotics & have a $100 nasal spray. You know when they give you a $40 off coupon when they hand you the prescription it's not going to be good. Whatever. The Dr. also said to keep taking Mucinex. Soooo, we know what that means......I didn't go to sleep until midnight. I slept good until 3:15 & after that was cat naps until I got up at 5:30. I feel better than I did yesterday but not great but I'm not falling asleep at my desk either so that's good.
I had plans with my friends to go to lunch yesterday for our friend Jill's birthday. Since I'm not contagious I went to lunch. We went to California Pizza Kitchen. The good thing about Mucines is that it curbs my appetite. I had a cup of broccoli & asparagus soup & a wedge salad. It was good & the hot soup made my throat feel good. It was nice to get to spend some time with my friends.
Since the meds don't let me sleep I was able to watch the entire Grammy telecast. Oh joy. Yes, that's sarcasm. Judging by Twitter I must be the only person over the age of 12 that actually likes Taylor Swift & her music. It's nice to see someone young that writes their own music, sings & plays an instrument & doesn't need auto tune. I think Adele has a beautiful voice but I HATE HATE HATE that Rolling In The Deep song. Then there was the debacle that is Niki Minaj. I mean seriously, what was that???? I'm not one of those people that gets offended by stupid crap that people do because that's on them but having a Priest as part of your performance doesn't sit well with me. Don't mess with religion, any religion. I hate that Super Bass song she sings too. I'm still not sure what was going on with the black Micky Mouse head either. If I was Disney I'd be on the phone with someone about trademark infringement this morning. Don't think that I'm an old fogey that doesn't get the music of today. I think everyone that knows me will tell you I like a wide variety of music. I love New Kids On The Block, Snoop Dogg (don't judge), Rascal Flatts, Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, The Fray, Bon Jovi, Lady Gaga (the music, not so much the person), etc.
After going back & proofing this post I see I'm all over the place. Just remember it's the steroids.
