I actually think we're beginning to establish a little bit of a routine here in Houston. Here's what it looks like:
* We got up and I checked the blog for comments...I'm addicted to the darn thing and watch for comments about a thousand times a day. This laptop will have to be surgically removed from my lap when this is over!!)
*We explored what Brenda will want to eat for breakfast...this morning it was an egg salad sandwich with pickle relish.
*Then it's shower time...Amanda tell Grace that the Dee & Brenda house HAS to have a big shower because we take one EVERY day!!
*Then we organize our outing. The first stop is ALWAYS STARBUCKS!!! Ha! Plus today we found Costco...a really nice Costco...then we stopped by the Vitamin Shoppe for protein powder and over to Super Target for a can opener so I didn't have to use my teeth again to open a can. The can opener they have here was impossible...crap! Macgyver...I know you could have opened the chicken can with a paperclip and some dental floss...Ha! Where are you when we need you!?
*By this time Brenda was fading fast so we headed back to the apartment and tried more food ideas. I just wait to see if I'm cleaning up what she can't eat or if I can find something else. Today...more egg salad.
*Brenda headed for the couch and I did some more e-mails, organizing stuff...it seems like I'm always organizing something...
*Today I wanted to start using the really nice fitness room they have so I went and did a half hour of cardio and a half hour of weights. Then I took a nice cool-down walk around the little lakes they have in the middle of the complex. It was great to have a good workout. It was really grounding so I can see this will be a daily ritual.
*Then I came back and puttered with laundry...I always seem to be doing laundry. We bought some new sheets, towels and socks at Costco so I wanted to get those washed.
*Then dinner...since the chicken salad worked so well last night...that's what Brenda had tonight. She also wanted a grilled cheese sandwich so I made one of those. Do you know what happens to a grilled cheese when you use a regular stainless steel pan...no no-stick stuff here...You're right...the dang thing sticks like hell!!! The creation I ended up with bore absolutely NO resemblance to what a grilled cheese is supposed to look like. Can you say "heap of bread and cheese?" It was hysterical...Brenda couldn't eat it because it was warm...she can't do warm things right now...so the garbage woman ate it!! Looked terrible - tasted good!
*Tonight we watched "The Tale of Despereaux." It's an animated film about a brave little mouse who saved the princess from the rats. I love these animinated movies...like the Pixar and Dreamworks ones. The animation is so fabulous and they really are made for adults as well as the kids. I guess I'm still a kid at heart. Brenda actually....yea...you're right...she went to sleep again! I'm going to stop asking her what movie she wants to see!!! Ha!
So now it's time for bed...Brenda's already sawing logs dreaming of mexican food at Nando's with our village buddies.
Sleep tight and dream of our girls cure.
