Long Week

Well, it's been a very long week, but fun. My mom and brother got here Sunday then my sister arrived Monday. We really didn't do much of anything, just shopping and visiting. We did play some Scrabble and Scatergories. I'm bummed that everyone is leaving but at the same time ready to have my house back in order. I'm hoping to get the one section left in the front yard finished up this week. I don't have much work to do, so I'm wanting to get the house cleaned and the yard finished. That's on my to do list this week, the to call freaking Wells Fargo every hour on the hour every day. We are having such a hard time with them trying to get the house in Vegas sold. They're just taking their time and dragging their feet. Anyways, nothing really new to report on this end. We did go garage sale hopping today. Our neighborhood has a big neighborhood garage sale twice a year, so that was fun. I've never been to a garage sale today. I got junk I didn't need. Spent a whole $4.00 total on everything! Let's see, I did get a totally cute purse that is like new, for myself. Then for the kids, I got Jacob 3 chapter books for summer reading, an army helmet and scarf thing, and for Athena a giant rubber duck and a cute cute old Sesame Street bus lunch box. Big big purchases! LOL! I'm going to try and update more starting Monday. I work all day tomorrow after I take my mom and brother to the airport. I'm looking forward to work. I like getting my little checks to spend as I wish, plus I just love the interaction with other female adults!
On a food note, haven't been eating great, but haven't been eating a lot, so I guess that balances out. Haven't been snacking as much as I have been. I need to start making my snacks healthier and I need to start getting my protein. I can't remember if I blogged about my physical a few weeks back. They did a ton of blood work to try and figure out what is causing my dizzy spells. Everything came back perfect, but my Iron was 1 point above being low, so he wants me taking 326mg of Iron a day. Yea, OK! The only pills I could find were 50mg each, so there's no way I'm taking 6 a day that's crazy. So I'm taking 2 but I think they're causing major headaches. Ever since I started them I'm getting headaches all the time. Like in my shoulders up my kneck and back of my head. Not sure if that's what's causing them but I don't know what else it could be. So, starting today I cut down to 1 per day and I'll see if that helps. I really don't want to make the choice of dizzy spells or headaches. Oh well, at least I'm thin. Guess there's always a price to pay!

Iron also comes in liquid form. It's pretty nasty stuff but if you can't stand the pills it is a viable option.
