Thank God my husband is handy, because I really have relied on him over the years to fix things, because that’s what he does! And he’s good at it. I got a call from Hannah while I was at work, right when my boss and I were filing documents online for a deadline! I called Tony, who was also on a business call. I told Hannah we’d get there when we could. And as I was sitting there, I felt bad because I really do rely on my husband too much for mechanical things. What if it were just me and Hannah? We’d have to muddle through somehow!
So while my I am waiting, after work hours, to finish what I had to do, I quickly did a YouTube search on how to change a tire. isn’t it sad that a 41 year old woman doesn’t know how to do that!
But the kicker is that when I got my driver’s license, my Dad made me not change one tire BUT ALL FOUR to make sure I got the hang of it! Well, that was a long time ago.
Luckily Tony knew better and met us to help us out – so while we did the manual labor, it was through Tony’s guidance that got us through!
Thank you Tony for coming to the rescue. . . Again! Um, not sure you can tell but Hannah is volunteering at a local thrift store – 50% discount for families and she gets first dibs on what comes through the door! I believe I raised my daughter right! 😀
So breakfast was another Non-Biz one. I had cooked quinoa, so I made this:
- 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
- 3 ounces diced apple
- 1 ounce unsweetened apple sauce
- .25 ounce chopped walnut
- 4 ounces of cottage cheese
- with Tabasco! 😀
Lunch was an old family favorite – Chicken Brunswick Stew. I’ll have to post the recipe later, I thought I already had!
So dinner was a bit hectic, as we got home late after fixing Hannah’s tire. I had thawed some chicken legs, so the easiest thing to do was to fry them up. I sautéed some green beans and heated up some quinoa for my side. The is no breading – just salt and pepper on the outside.
And Hannah ate the last of our good hotdogs, and since the fryer was on, and she’d only had like 12 points going into dinner, I fried it up – she gave Tony and I each a slice and it was pretty damn good! I gave it hatch marks because I wasn’t sure if it would explode otherwise!
Not pictured today was an ounce of pretzels and about 10 almonds.

And it’s Weigh-in Wednesday for my food pantry challenge. I started out at 167.6 – last week I was 166.2 and today I was 165.1 – for a total food pantry donation of 2.5 pounds! My goal was a pound a week, so I am pretty close to meeting my goal of donating 7 pounds of food to my local pantry! 😀
Two more days til the weekend is going to be my mantra! See you all tomorrow night! 😀
