Well would you look at that!

Hey all!! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป How is everyone? Doing as well as can be expected here I guess. But will get into that in a minute here. So second day in a row I am posting. Itโ€™s a personal record. Woo hoo!!!! Hahaha!

Anyway on to more boring topics. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. Just thought I would tell you all about my day. Not that it was anything all to spectacular or anything. Also with my luck I will start rambling on about something as I get going and completely loose what I am talking about as tends to happen a lot with me.

But anyway back to my day. So it didnโ€™t really start to well. Woke up at about 9 am because I was frozen solid. Which in itself really a big deal if it was winter here but itโ€™s not. It is the end of summer. It was like already in the high 80โ€™s F plus humidity so felt like about 90+ at 9 am. However sometime in the middle of the night my wonderful wife (lord bless her) decide to turn our A/C to face the bed because she was hot and couldnโ€™t cool down. I donโ€™t sleep with much on to start with and usual end up on top of covers. So needless to say I got just a wee bit cold by the time it woke me up.

So I get up frozen to the bone almost. Go down the stairs. One at a time all 14 of those god awful steps like I am two because my right leg will not support me properly to go down them like a normal person. Cursing the whole way down under my breath as to not wake anyone that was still sleeping. Go and get my coffee to find out that I forgot to get creamer yesterday well at the store because I didnโ€™t put it on my list ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ. Oh well milk to the rescue.

So I get my coffee and sit down with my daughter and start going through my morning phone time and get caught up on Facebook and people I follow on YouTube and the various apps I have on my phone. Three coffees later I climb those 14 retched steps again and get the two boys up. Then get myself into the shower and other bathroom related things.

From there I go back down those 14 blasted steps once again. (If you havenโ€™t figured it out yet my and stairs donโ€™t get along very well. Lol). Run a brush through my hair. Put my ball cap on. Grab my phone and start making my grocery list. (Yes I remembered to put creamer on it this time ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚). Then head out to the grocery store. Get what I needed too and head home.

Get back home and put everything away. My wife is getting ready for work at this point. So I start getting stuff ready for dinner. Decided to make beef stew tonight. I know. I know. That is more of a winter kind of meal. My wife made the exact comment. However I need a comfort feel good meal tonight and that is what felt right today. So I get it all in the slow cooker and going so I donโ€™t have to think about it at all till dinner time. By this time it is 1pm. My wife is just finishing up getting ready to leave for work. I sit down at the computer and she says to me โ€œyou look done already.โ€ โ€œNot done just worn out a bit. Need to sit for a few.โ€ Thankfully I get out to the grocery store when I did which allowed me to not need the car today so my wife could just take it to work.

So She leaves at about 1:30pm. I decided I am going to jump in a race and just have some fun and relax a little. Well that didnโ€™t last long. Got caught up in a wreck that blew my engine. Oh well it happens at a small race track like Bristol is. Only a 0.553 mile oval track. So it isnโ€™t a big deal. Then decided I still felt like driving so I played some American Truck Driving. Did a run on there and by that time it was 6pm and dinner was ready.

Did the last few things with dinner and feed the kids and myself. It is now 8:21pm and am just getting my daughter ready for bed. Then if I still have any energy I have a bunch of laundry to fold. But we will see how that goes.

So all in all kind of a productive day. Not a horrible day either. Will be happy when it is over though. As I am most nights. But a lot of it is because the amount of time I have to climb them 14 god forsaken stairs. Oh and have I mentioned I hate stairs? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Anyway that has been my day today. Nothing to amazing but nothing bad either. Hope everyone is having a fantastic day no matter what you are doing. Take care everyone and talk to you soon. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—

@shannon_devlaminck , thanks for sharing.

It’s good to unload at the end of the day and reflect. Well done on a productive day. ๐Ÿ˜‰

@stumbler, thanks. Also I did end up getting all the laundry folded. Was just finishing the last few towels when my wife walked in the door at about 10:15 last night so go me.

Hello @shannon_devlaminck, sounds like you pack a lot into your day! But you didnโ€™t say how the beef stew went down……

@vixen, It was really good. Not to brag to much but I am a bit of a foodie guy. You would never know it to look at me though really. I am 6 foot tall and weigh between 180 – 185lbs. Nothing ever higher or lower. Has been that way for most my life. But I eat a lot most times. I can cook almost anything under the sun that you can think of. I have made some pretty romantic meals my wife back when we first got back together. (A story for another time.)

However lately it hasnโ€™t happened so much because it is a lot of work and I just canโ€™t stand at the counter that long anymore most times. My wife always says well why donโ€™t you sit well you are doing it and use the table as your counter. Just donโ€™t work the same. I would spend more time on my feet then I would sitting because something always needs attention. But it is what it is. So just have been boring meals that are easy to make. Something I can throw in the oven and not have to think about. Or something that comes out of a package. Personally to me that is not food it is processed garbage. But that is all I can do.

So now that you got the background that I didnโ€™t intend on doing till I got going and started rambling as I always do. The stew was amazing for being fresh made. It was exactly what I needed yesterday. If felt good to be able to make something that everyone enjoyed even though it was as hot as hell out yesterday.

Loving reading your rambles. How were those stairs today ?
My physio had this great idea that each time I go upstairs, I should go down and then up again.
The flight climbs that are necessary are enough thank you. ๐Ÿ˜…
LookOMG forward to hearing about more of your days. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

๐Ÿค”not sure where the OMG came from โ€œLooking forwardโ€ ๐Ÿ™ƒ

@wobbleone, Thanks that is sweet of you to say.

As far as going down and then back up them again there is no way in this wonderful rock we live on in this ever growing universe could I ever manage to do that. I would forever be going up and down them the amount of times I go up them in a day. My washroom is upstairs and I am in there a lot. So no way am I going to make an extra trip every time.

However in theory it makes sense. I can completely understand the point behind it. Will help keep your legs strongish. Will also burn extra calories. All kinds of good stuff. But to actually put into practice. Not very feasible for me unfortunately.

We live in a large rambling old farmhouse that we are renovating , so even just walking around the house is more like an assault course at present. I recently put my foot through the ceiling as I tried to step over a lifted floorboard and my other leg gave way. Another hole in the ceiling below to be replastered. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
We also have 3 sets of stairs, so enough exercise thanks ๐Ÿ˜

…Iโ€™m trying to summon the strength to climb one flight to have a bath. ๐Ÿ™ƒ
