This weekend was really pretty uneventful. Friday night, we had some family come to town to visit for the weekend. We ended up going to Chili’s for dinner. I ordered a cheeseburger and ate half of it. I honestly can’t remember the last time I had a burger. It was pretty good, but I’m fine without eating them.
Then, I spent the day Saturday visiting my sister and grandma. My sis is in a hospital because she broke both of her hips. She is pretty bored because she can’t get out of the bed. So my grandma and I took her some snacks and magazines.
Saturday night the hubby and I went to dinner with some friends. We went to eat Mexican, which is my absolute favorite!! I have a really bad habit of overeating when I go to a Mexican restaurant. I mean, all the chips and salsa and tortillas and guacamole….it’s just so hard! But, even with all of that temptation, I think I did pretty well. I ate chips and salsa in moderation, and I ordered the Pollo Loco. It’s grilled chicken and it comes with grilled onions on top. It also comes with beans and rice, but I passed on both. (I forgot to take a pic) It was really, really good! It came with two big pieces of chicken. I ate one and gave the other to Hubby. I ate until I was full, and not stuffed. I usually eat until I’m miserable when I eat Mexican. Especially when I’m eating with friends, because I’m paying more attention to the conversation than to what I’m eating.
After dinner, our friends came over and we played Wahoo! Everyone won a game, except me!
On Sunday, I decided that I would be a good wife and go help my husband build a fence around our deer feeder. I figured that he takes me hunting, so I should at least help get everything set up. I just wish it could be done in cooler weather. My weather app was saying it was going to be 101 degrees, so I was a little nervous. We packed two jugs of ice water and then a small cooler with several more water bottles. We weren’t planning on being out there for more than a few hours. At first, it didn’t seem that bad. I stood around holding tools and being helpful. After about 30 mins in the heat I started getting dizzy. The hubby told me to go sit down in the shade and he brought me some water. I drank a lot of water and as long as I was in the shade I felt okay. I even weaved together some blades of grass.:) I got up to help for a minute and I got really dizzy, so he put me in the truck and turned the air conditioner on. The thermometer in the truck said 107 degrees!! No wonder I was feeling so sick.
Hubby works outside every day so he is used to the heat. But, even he had to take a break and sit in the truck for a little while. We (he) got the fence built and we came home and cooled off! When it got closer to dark, we took Jake for a walk and went to feed our horse.
It was kind of a boring day, but I like day like this when we don’t have much to do. Between our jobs, we seem like we always have something going on, and on the rare occasion that we don’t we are trying to catch up on things around the house. The next few weekends are jam packed, so I will have lots to tell you!
Did you do anything fun this weekend?
