I'm pooped!

I didn't realize how long it's been since I posted. Work was crazy last week & when I got home I was tired & I still am. This was one of those weekends that we didn't have a lot of plans but we did a lot. Make sense? Friday when I got home we went to eat at a new little place called The Purple Goose. I had BBQ Nachos which were good but overall I don't expect this place to stay in business. Couyons BBQ was there before & they were great so if they closed I can't imagine a place that just sells pub food to stay open. Anywho, afterwards we went to the LSU game. They won so that was good.

Saturday, we had errands to run. We went to Sam's, Academy to get Logan's birthday gift, Home Depot & Lowe's to price dishwashers. When we bought our house it was 2 years old & all the appliances were stainless except the dishwasher. It was black. The guy that built the house had a Viking oven & cook top so the only thing I can figure is he was trying to not spend much on the dishwasher since he'd upgraded to Viking on the other things. It's always bugged me. I like things to match. It didn't bother the other person that lives in my house & it worked so there was no need to replace it. Men really don't understand. With all the work going on in the kitchen I finally convinced Dean to upgrade it. After all, I lived with the unmatching dishwasher for almost 7 years. We ended up buying a KitchenAid from a small appliance store not far from our house. They deal mostly with builders so they have great prices. The dishwasher we bought was on sale at Lowe's & it was still $144 more than we paid. What a deal! It's so nice & quiet & pretty, shiny stainless. The inside is stainless too. I love it! Our garbage disposal broke. Well, not break as much as it started leaking so we upgraded that too. It's a Waste King & supposedly will last a really long time. It has a bigger motor than what we had so I'll really be able to grind up some stuff. It's quiet too.  We were able to take it all home Saturday & Dean started installing. Saturday evening we went to Mass & Dean went to the LSU game & I went home. My sinuses were bothering me. I got caught up on my DVR.

Sunday morning I was up bright & early at 7:00. Seriously, what's up with that? I went for a run which completed C25K! They claim that at the end of the program you'll be running a 5K in 30 mins. I've completed it twice & that hasn't been the case either time but that's ok.  I'm running about 2.5 miles. in 30 mins. My plan now is to continue to run 3 times a week. The last couple of weeks of the program the run increased by a minute everyday. I'm going to continue that until I'm running 3.1 miles.

The rest of my Sunday consisted of grocery shopping, folding laundry,  planting some plants I bought Saturday. Yes, I do think I have a sickness when it comes to plants. I really have no other place to plant anything unless I start making new beds & I think Dean would have a heart attack if I suggested such a thing. Sooo, I think I'm done for this year. I sealed the back splash. I ironed. Apparently, I iron different than a lot of people. I don't iron everyday or before I wear something. I iron a bunch of stuff at the same time. I had A LOT of ironing to do yesterday. I also treated myself to a snoball. It was HOT when I was planting those plants. 

Needless to say, I could use a day off to recuperate from my weekend.



  1. Whew! You were busy girl. Sounds fun! :)

  2. Wow! You had so much accomplished, Traci, and that feels so good, doesn't it? We were in BR all day yesterday and ended up eating at Nagoya. We liked it so I am sure we will eat there more often...Christine

  3. Hi, Traci! You did do a lot for one weekend! My Mom irons like you. Everything all at one. I iron so much everyday with my work that my clothes get ironed as I wear them! LOL!

  4. You need to kick your feet up and have a tasty drink in your hand.

  5. Congrats on the c25k!! I was not running that time when I completed either. I am just not interested in training that hard. :)haha
    I like stainless steel, but it would drive me NUTS with the boys. Our friends have one and everytime we are over she is YELLing at her kids to stay away from the fridge! Not worth the effort.
    I used to do all of the ironing on the weekend. I enjoyed it! I sat in front of my fav tv show and ironed everything. Ask me if I ever hardly get to iron now, and ask me if I could sit and iron and ask me if I ever get to watch a tv show I like...NOT!! ;)

  6. Good way of telling, and fastidious paragraph to get information on the topic of my presentation topic, which i am going to
    convey in school.

  8. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this
    matter to be really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!
