Jason and I got a room on the west side of town at the Wigwam Resort. This isn't the exact room we stayed in, but it looked almost exactly like this. It was really nice, but I do have one complaint... at 8:30 in the morning, housekeeping banged on the door and woke me up. WHAT THE HECK! Checkout wasn't until noon so there was NO reason to wake the guests up early.
Once again I have failed to take a photo for one of my days. Father's Day arrived with Jason and I not happy with each other. So here is my "Photo" for the day. Jason and his daughters, Samantha and Olivia, went out to lunch and then caught a movie at the $3.00 theater. All things considered, this was a good day for the girls as they got some great one on one time with their dad.
Today we all got together for a lunch date. The Lundberg girls, Beverly, Margaret, Suzee & Crissie, along with Kacie (Suzee's daughter) and Terri (Bev's best bud) met at Claim Jumper for some yummy grub. It was great to visit with everyone, unfortunately this date ended very badly for Margaret when past events were brought up.

I had to go to the beauty supply today and get some much needed items. These few things cost me over $200. I actually saved money by buying such large containers. The CND Perfect Color in a 3.7 oz container cost $32 while it only costs $75 for 16 oz. So I just bit the bullet and saved until it hurt.
I did a really dumb thing. I made this treat called Toffee Crack. Dumb, dumb, dumb. I find myself going to the fridge in the garage and breaking off pieces of this tasty treat and then gobbling them up. Not good if I want to keep the weight off that I lost.
I asked Jason out on a date. We met at the theater after he got out of work and saw The Hangover. Funny movie...definitely a guy movie. Pictured here is the second concession counter at the theater. I have never seen it open since we've been going there (of course we refuse to go after 5 p.m. due to over priced tickets).

Today I made myself a chicken fajita omelet (I finished up the leftover chicken fajitas from a couple nights back). We are not paper conscious around here....especially now with a dishwasher we can't use until the door latch gets fixed.
Since I've been on my diet, many people ask what kinds of food I eat. Here is what a typical lunch might include. I absolutely love to add strawberries to my salads. I usually put in some chunks of chicken breast to get my protein. I will also eat some yogurt and a piece of cheese. I try to fill up at lunch time and make it my biggest meal.
Jason wanted to go golfing and decided on going to the west side of the valley. Instead of making the long drive back at the end of the day, we got a room close to the golf course. I hung out in the room and worked on my Photoshop layouts and watched TV. Here's the standard map that hangs on every interior door in hotel rooms. Now I know where to go in case there's a fire.

Ahh, would you just look at the wee little kitty. He's so cute and much more fun to be around since Jason shoved a pill down his throat that killed off his tape worms. Thank you Jason for sacrificing your flesh for a healthy kitten.
I really do have a wonderful sister. I went to her house to help her out while she recovers from surgery. And look what I got for going! This super-duper apron! I love it and now I can stop crying over mine being stolen by Jacob's party buddies. I'd have put it on to model for the photo, but I didn't feel like posing. LOL

I really love this stuff. I've been using stevia instead of sugar since sugar is a BIG no-no on my diet. Lucky for me that they've come out with flavored stevia. I add this to my non fat yogurt and it makes it taste almost like whipped cream. Then I add chopped strawberries and I can't believe that I'm not cheating. (I also have Chocolate Raspberry flavored stevia)
This is what the inside of my external hard drive looks like. Jason had to open it and see if the actual hard drive was dead or not because the computer kept telling me I had to format it before it would work. Well, I had all my scrapbook stuff backed up on it and COULDN'T format it. Well, it was all erased....by the sub woofer I had sitting on it. Who knew that there are magnets inside speakers and that it just might, definitely erase my files.
Today I decided it was time for me to try making my first batch of strawberry freezer jam. I was happy to find plastic Ball canning jars for my project. Suzee was right when she told me it is the easiest thing to make. Of course I won't be able to even sample any of it for about 3 more weeks. That is when I'll be done with my diet.
I was on the phone with Jared on my way home from work and he asked me what the orange blobs in his toilet were. I had no idea what he was talking about. His brother was spending a couple days on the west side of town with old friends and wouldn't be coming home with me, and seeing that he is the only other person using that bathroom, I knew he would have known. These are the orange blobs. I have a sneaky suspicion they are Accutane pills.
