What a great day

Wednesday started out pretty normal. Took my son to school complaining the entire 1.5 mile trip that his fever was 99.1 and he should be in bed still. That’s not a fever I tell him and he is not happy. I get back home, shower, get dressed, and head on down to the dentist. It took him 4 tries to get my teeth to not hurt me in about 30 minutes. The whole drive down there I was thinking to myself that I should go to the beach like I wanted to last weekend. I would be halfway there anyway so why not, right?

I start driving south from the dentist. Almost immediately I get stuck in traffic. This continues for a mile and then all the traffic just dissipates. What was the problem??? Oh well. I keep going. I get to Galveston and was hungry! It was 11am so I decided to get something to eat. I wanted fish so I went in search for a fish place on the beach (makes perfect sense to me). I found one very close on the seawall. I had hush puppies and fried fish fillet. It was Cajun flavored and very good. I only ate 2 hush puppies and half of a piece of fish before I was stuffed and that’s okay with me. Great view of the water as well.

I got back in the car and drive to East Beach. As I got close, I saw that they were charging $10 just to drive onto the beach. Crazy! They had an area to park in for free way far away from the water and walk in. I can do that. Fine. I’m not paying to park just to walk around.

I set my watch for outdoor walk and took off down the beach. I walked a mile and a half one way and then turned around to walk back. I ended up walking 3.1 miles or 5km. I did not take my phone with me on my walk. I just wanted to hear the ocean and get my exercise while I was relaxed from just being there. After my walk, I went to my car to get my phone and walked back down to the water to take pictures. I didn’t want to leave! Now I’m planning on going back down there one day next week to do it again. We’ll see if I can get away to do it.

I stopped for Smartwater on my drive back and there was no traffic so I got back too quick. I wasn’t ready! It started to rain once I got back to Houston as well. I’m really glad it didn’t rain on me down there. Can you imagine being a mile away from your car and it starts pouring? Me either. I was very blessed.

I picked my son and his friends up at school and then dropped them off at one of the boys home. I then went home to walk Amber. My son got home pretty soon after and when I asked him why, he said he got bored so he came home. Umm, ok.

My evening was spent on Netflix as usual because Mr. 95 year old called me when I was leaving Galveston to tell me that because of weather, they weren’t going to dinner. Better Call Saul Season 3 came out so I tuned in for that. It’s a good show. It didn’t really need Breaking Bad to start it out, it would have held well on its own before that show (although that was a great show!).

Calories were almost exactly what they are supposed to be. Now that’s close! I didn’t want to go over so I didn’t even snack while watching Netflix.

Depending on weather out there today, I am supposed to take the couples car to get inspected and take the husband to the grocery if he needs it. I am also supposed to start the foot treatment this morning. I have to have injections (he didn’t tell me about that) and the neuropathy electrodes treatment. He said I have tarsal tunnel syndrome and bad circulation. That doesn’t sound good. I asked the success rate for this and was told that this has a good success rate but some people have surgery after. I can’t afford both. This better work! Cranky’s caregiver will have to take her to the dentist to have her partial adjusted. I hope the address will work well enough to get her there. It’s not hard so I’m sure they will be fine.

In some ways, I am hoping for bad weather so I don’t have to go anywhere. In other ways, I need the money! I’m not ready to get out of bed yet and check. Lol

Y’all have a great day!

  1. I was born in Houston and lived there 26 years. I spent most of my young adulthood making it to Galveston every weekend. I’m ready to get a rental and enjoy it again soon. If you like lakes as well, we live on Lake Palestine. It is gorgeous. You can’t make it in 45 minutes, though. We are about 3-4 hours away depending on where you are in Houston. Thanks for sharing your fun day.

    1. Hi and thanks for reading!
      I’m a native Houstonian actually and oh yes, I know Lake Palestine. It is beautiful there too. I used to take my son every year to Palestine to see Thomas the Tank Engine and we would then meet his Nana at the lake for a few days.

  2. Ooh yum! The fish and hush puppies look amazing!! And the beach is beautiful, I’m glad you ended up going out there for a walk. Hopefully you can get out there again next week & I really hope you won’t have to get surgery after the injections!
