Nap Time!

This morning I had to get up and go get blood work done for my glucose screening.  I was very glad they let me go to Athens to do it instead of having to drive all the way to Huntsville but it still stunk.  I got there about 8:30, had to be admitted the the hospital, and then finally got to the lab and started at 8:55.  First, they took my blood and then made me drink that nasty super sweet drink.  It reminded me of the kool-aid my basketball friends used to make in high school.  They always used way more sugar than kool-aid so it was so thick and syrupy!  Anyways,  I thought it was only a one hour test but turned out they had to do a blood sample after one hour and then do it again after another hour.  It was pretty much 11:00 before I got out of there.  Luckily, I brought a couple of magazines with me because I had absolutely no service on my phone in there!  But after that, we went to Friday lunch and now we are back home and H is taking a nap.

Hadley has always been a pretty good napper.  I can usually count on a good 1 1/2 - 2 hours once I get her to sleep.  Nap time is usually my time that I can get some things done around the house like laundry and dishes and sometime even get a few minutes to watch Lifetime and have a small cat nap myself.  Today it is being spent making a grocery list considering I have not been the the grocery in almost 2 weeks now!  I don't know why I have been dreading it so much lately but I have pretty much put it off until we have nothing in our house to eat but a couple of canned goods and a thing of sliced turkey (that has no bread to go with it!).  So I am definitely dreading my grocery bill today! 

However, I did find some new recipes I am excited about trying.  They are all weight watcher recipes to! I am not trying to lose weight but trying to cook healthier for not only me but everyone in my house. I love weight watcher recipes because they are usually the same stuff you can usually cook but just with substituted ingredients. I am going to try a brocolli and cheese soup, mexican casserole, and parmesan chicken all this week! Here all the links...

I have been trying to think of some better things for us to take for lunch.  I hate eating out at lunch all the time but I get so tired of the same old stuff.  I know Jarrod really gets tired of his turkey or bologna sandwich everyday to so I have been trying to find some new things to take. 

Jarrod has gone to Tanner's football game tonight with his dad and won't be home until real late so I have a feeling Hadley and I will have a lazy afternoon and an early night probably watching her new Little Einstein's movie or "HoHo Puppies" which is fine by me considering we have a super busy day tomorrow!
