On the road

Monday the 13th was a not my typical day off. It actually wasn't a day off at all. The deli manager was still sick and they put a different person in bakery. She can do it but she's not fond of it and it stresses her out. There was an order for 200 donuts that morning so I went in early and stayed just long enough to get that order done. It took me 2 hours.

I had an appointment with the audiologist again. This was a 2 week follow up after getting the new hearing aids. It was a beautiful morning as I traveled down the road.

This time I saw a different doctor but he was just as amazing as the female doctor I've been going to. First he had trouble getting my hearing aids to connect to his computer so he could make adjustments. We ended up changing offices and he was finally able to get them connected. Next was trying to resolve the issue my hearing aids were having with the fall detect feature. He did everything he could think of and finally called customer service and got it all figured out. In the time he spent with me I think I saw the other doctor go back with 6 or 7 other patients. He was not about to let me leave there without the issues being resolved. 
Because these people are so amazing and I had been at work that morning, I put together a box of one dozen donuts to take to them. They were pretty excited about that.

Finally before I headed home I stopped at a Dollar Tree that I didn't know about. It's close to the audiologists office. I splurged and bought something I couldn't resist.
I found this place setting and thought it was just too cute. I only bought one set since it's just me and I've even used them already.

I thought these were the bee's knees and just couldn't resist them.

Backing up a bit

 Lately I just seem to have an overabundance of things I can use for blog posts. That's a good thing but I tend to be posting things way after they actually happened.

Today I'm backing up to Mother's day. After I got home from work that day Amanda came over to visit for a bit. She brought me a lilac bush and even helped me plant it. That's probably a good thing because if I did it myself it would have greatly reduced it's chances for survival.

I also got a card in the mail from Wade's youngest son. He's the only one of Wade's 4 children that sends me birthday cards and Mother's day cards. He even beat out my son who only sent a text.

the most important meal of the day

For the longest time I didn't eat breakfast unless someone cooked it for me. Back when I first decided I needed to take some weight off and change my eating habits, adding breakfast was one of the things I did. If I'm home I'll make myself eggs but at work it's a little different. I don't want to have the same thing every day so my choices are
Homemade McGriddle muffins
And most recently I added French toast sticks

I can pop those in the microwave for 45 seconds and there's my breakfast.

If you're curious about the McGriddle muffins, I found the recipe online somewhere but can't remember where.
1pound sausage browned
2 cups pancake mix
1 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 cup shredded cheddar

preheat over to 400. Fill muffin tins 2/3 full and bake for 12-15 minutes. 

When I make these I take one the next day and put the rest in the freezer. When I'm ready for another one I pull it out the night before, pop it in a baggie and then microwave at work for about 45 seconds. I don't have a picture of these as I never thought to take one. They are pretty yummy though.

So where am I on the weight loss? Well I managed to lose 24 pounds but have been stuck for months now. My original goal was to lose 10 more pounds but I just can't seem to get any lower.

Just a couple of doodles I've done while sitting and watching tv.

This first one, the idea came to me from the card I showed you yesterday.

And then my work doodles.
