Non-Typical Tuesday Recap
Yesterday I was awakened by the icy cold hand of
It always makes me nervous to see their equipment for some reason even though I know they're not going to do the eye puff test but use those jaundice drops.
The Mr's grandpa used to have this box in his office and I'm pretty sure this is the only reason we go to this guy.
I had to blow off a cobweb on this so either it's a prop or all of the children that visit are pure evil. I'm going with the latter.
When that was done, we headed home to power wash the cooties off of us since one of the receptionists was sick. So it was time for some Emergen-C and neti pot with my new salt. Holy balls did that stuff burn! Me thinks I might've doubled the requirement on that one since I moved from pre-packaged to loose to save moolah. It definitely killed anything that might've been lurking. I know I'd die if that washed over me.
Then we ran to the store, got our flu shots and did a little shopping. To put ourselves in the category of 'guinea pigs', we felt it our duty to grab the pumpkin spice Oreos we saw.
If you can find them, I wouldn't steer you away from them but we weren't bowled over by the taste of pumpkin spice. It was much like when we tried their rice crispy version and you couldn't actually taste the cream unless you removed the tops of two cookies and made one big mega stuff cookie out of it. We might have two more then send them to work with the Mr. I hate it when things are just okay versus WOW!
We had to take back a rug we got at BBB for an exchange and then it was time to peruse a few of my favorite stores. Hello Crate and Barrel.
And Pottery Barn.
I saw the charger in the catalog and wanted to see it in person. Meh.
I bought some birch wood logs for when it's time to switch out for winter but it's so hard to find them and I didn't think $19.95 was a bad price since I saw them going for double that price.
We figured it was time to pick up the Mr's car and as we were pulling out, I heard him honk at me and turn around. I had to flip back around and he said that the problem wasn't fixed so he had to take it right back in. Then they're all like "oh, I guess we'll have to pull the blower motor out and see if there's anything else down in there." Yeah...I guess you will. Will third time be the charm or will you need a GPS to find your ass with both hands? I already have so little tolerance for this place and the fact we were still dealing with it when our day could've been done was not sitting well.
We couldn't help ourselves and took naps.
The Mr had to call them back and of course they don't have the part on hand and it's 2 days out before we have to drive all the way back, come home and drive all the way back to pick it up again. May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your armpits, sirs. I was not at all sorry that as I passed the woman ahead of us who was griping to us about being nickeled and dimed by these people I gave her the name of a mechanic that could give her a better price. Pfft!
We went home and got right to the workout to get out all of that frustration...
1050 calories later and I felt better. Old school Tae Bo baby.
Then it was time for dinner...orange marmalade orange roughy over spinach and carrot polenta.
485 calories of delish.
We gave two new shows we had NO intention of watching a chance...Selfie with John Cho and Mahattan Love Story. Selfie wasn't awful which is way better than we thought. We'll likely watch it next week to make our decision to DVR or not to DVR. MLS was okay. The lead character was a cutie and then she went on a blind date with a hottie Nate Fisher's little brother looking guy. We *might* give it another chance especially when she said to herself "fist bump, the handshake of douche bags."
When was your last eye doctor appointment? Have you given any new shows a chance that you didn't think you would?
