The Boys and Me

Friday didn’t start out with Boys.  It was one of my lovely wake up at 3:3o days, so after about an hour of trying to go back to sleep I got up, made my coffee, worked on the computer and then read for a while.

I had an appointment with the “lady doctor” as Ralph likes to call it.  Had a good bit of waiting there because they’ve changed to a new system and the new system did them the favor of triple booking patients!  What fun.  It wasn’t so bad because I had my book with me, but it was Freezing in the waiting room!  I don’t know why offices insist on doing that, but I don’t feel like getting on my soapbox right now. 😉

I got home by 12:30 which wasn’t bad considering the issues at the doctor’s office.  Ralph’s son Bill and his sons were scheduled to come for a visit and to go for lunch.  They got here about 1:30 but only grandson Patrick came, Alex was camping.  We missed him but headed out any way.

We decided on Picasso’s for lunch…quick, easy, close, Very reasonable.  Why wouldn’t we choose it!

I had my usual favorite-the mixed cheese salad with balsamic vinaigrette.  As usual…Delicious!  I can’t get over how their prices are so much better than so many of the other pizza places in the area.  Their food is every bit as good And it’s 4 blocks from our house!

After lunch we decided to go down to the Park to walk around a bit, look at the river and the planes coming in to the Philadelphia Airport.  Well, that’s why I like to go anyway! 😉

Bill, Patrick and Ralph…all trying to look cool in their shades!  Ralph looks a little forlorn.

Here they are when they’re Not in disguise! Now they are all complaining because it’s too sunny…what whiners! 😉

It was a nice day but I was fading fast because of my 3:30am wake up.  Bill and Patrick had some errands to run so they were off soon after this. Actually there was a stop for ice cream in which I did not participate.  I was there, but I didn’t have any because…it’s Friday!

Not sure how my weigh in will go this morning.  I’m hoping I do well.  In spite of several meals out, I feel I’ve been very much on track and I have been doing my walking.  Didn’t get to do it Friday morning because of the doctor’s appointment.  I could really feel it throughout the day.  I was very stiff because I hadn’t walked.

Hoping for a good result!

Happy Saturday!!

  1. hoping you have a positive experience at ww this morning, fran! i am thinking of you!
    oh boy…that doctor’s office would have put me in a bad mood with two things that are very annoying: freezing a/c and w-a-i-t-i-n-g!! glad you had your book to keep you occupied and i hope the appt was nothing special. that is great that you had the lunch outing with the boys to look forward to. i am laughing at the pics with shades and without…posing men for the blog can be a laugh-inducing challenge, at times – this looks like one of those time!
    have a great day!

    • Thanks, Cathy, Dr’s appt was just my check up. Everything looks good! I love being with Bill and the boys, wish Alex could have been with us. We have to be sure to see him before we go away. Have a great Saturday!!

  2. Oh the cold office thing is for sure a pet peeve. I don’t like being cold! I try to carry a book everywhere but invariably I forget and then that’s when it turns out to be a long wait…It’s so nice that you got to have lunch with the boys and how great to have a place you like that you can walk to! Good luck with the weigh-in!

  3. wow! i cannot believe you passed on ice cream kids while sitting there. haha. i have got to try picasso’s and that salad soon.

    lovely to see you this morning.

  4. It sounded like a nice day in spite of the doctor’s office. The guys do look good in their shades.

  5. Hope today went ok and the same for the “lady doctor” – that reminds me, I really need to make one of those appointments as I keep putting it off!
    But please do get on the freezing air conditioning soapbox and I’ll join you up there… my office blasts it out so cold, my hands go numb – and we’re not only in England, it’s the coldest summer for nearly a century!

    • I’m so glad you’re with me on this Elle! Ever since I lost weight I’ve been cold in general, so that’s over 20 years. What is wrong with people…just because it’s hot out, doesn’t mean you want to freeze inside. The only good thing was that it was warmer in the exam room, thank the Lord since I had to take off most of my clothes and then wait around. I had my book so I guess that kept my blood pumping and kept me warm! 😉 I’ve heard what a cold summer you’re having in the UK. Wow, weather is weird these days, but be careful, then I’d have to get on another soap box!! Have a great Sunday!
