Brittany and her wild turkey. How cool is this? And who else on the planet can look this good in camo?
Then we did a hallway by Evelyn and Chance’s room.
And added a few things to the entry way. We have a plan for Isaiah’s room. We’re going to do it Marvel Comics. Since that’s the “In thing” right now. He’s always been a fan. I don’t get the comic thing but with all the “Endgame” buzz, I thought I’d check it out. I watched IronMan and The Hulk yesterday. Surprisingly, both were pretty good. So, today I’m watching Iron Man 2 and maybe Captain America.
I’m loving Weight Watchers. It’s really easy for me and the one pound a week loss is enough motivation to keep going. I won a weekly drawing on WW facebook’s page. A box of apple cinnamon oatmeal. (That’s my team above.) These ladies are the. ones who weigh you every week-privately thank God- and run the free 30 minute meetings to keep you motivated for another week. The oatmeal is nothing fabulous but it smells amazing.
A couple lunches. I call these garbage salads. Basically, it’s everything that is zero points put into a salad. Guilt free lunch.
So far, in 60 days I’ve lost 18.4 pounds (the point four matters!!) and have donated a couple pair of jeans to Goodwill and bought a size smaller underwear. (It’s the little things)
Mom and Savannah at IHOP
In the middle of April, we were supposed to go to Miami for a long weekend. I’ve had it planned for a year. Tickets purchased (and recently, paid off!) hotel/Airbnb booked and ready for us. We were going to fly out of Kansas City since it’s cheaper than Omaha. We get an hour away from Kansas City and get a text message from American Airlines that says our flight is cancelled. Cancelled....not rebooked but cancelled due to weather. Refunds will be issued if you call (shouldn’t that be automatic?)
I had eight unhappy travelers at that point. We went to Kansas City anyway and stayed at the “Great Wolfe Lodge” water park.
The three adults were’t so thrilled but the kids made the best of it and swam from sun-up to sun-down. By the way, if anyone tells you you should go to Great Wolfe Lodge, they’re not your friend. Delete them from your social media. No-one needs that friend. Great Wolfe Lodge is WAY over priced. We were in a bind since there’s nothing to do in Kansas City besides this place. But there’s my plug for the biggest waste of money in the midwest.
We spent day two at the outlet mall about 3 minutes from the water park. It was a nice day and everyone enjoyed shopping.
I got a couple new pairs of Converse. You know I love my Chucks
I’m still looking for the yellow pair but I’m pretty happy with the lavender and burgundy.
So, it was a good trip. I’m still miffed about not going to the beach, but we’ll get there.
This weekend, Evelyn, Savannah, and Daniel are in Waverly Iowa at a karate tournament.
Savannah got two first place medals. Woot!!!
