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!
