It’s so exciting. We have Asheville with Mike & Dave coming up. Then Asheville with Grandma. Then DC with Carl & Tim and Laurie & Pearl. This morning I worked on a possible menu to host dinner in the RV 3 out of 4 nights. We’ll most likely have lunch while we’re out and about. The gang’s hotel will feed them a free breakfast buffet each morning.
Naturally, with my anal-retentive nature I’ve made meal plans that are broken down into the ingredients that we’ll need to have on hand. For example:
Anal, aren’t I? But, it’s not just me. Jim shares in the passion. He’s using Excel to make an itinerary spreadsheet. It’s including times, costs, notes, etc.
I’d like to have a Weight Watchers calculator or little slider thing. Their online store sells the calculator for $11.95 + $7.95 S&H. My online software does it but I want something portable for grocery shopping. My phone doesn’t offer an app either.
I’m going to stop by their meeting support group location when they’re “open for drop-in to buy products or such” but I have to wait until Thursday morning. That’s their next drop-in date. Ugh.
I made Jim and I smoothies. He had some but wasn’t that fond of it. I thought it was pretty good.
Apparently some time ago Jim signed up on Golden Corral’s website – probably for coupons or something. Maybe it was for dating. He got this email today:
I read the email out loud to him and could barely stop laughing. The email provided a link to see the rest of the comments but Jim doesn’t remember his password so I had to request a password reset.
It took a while but after the password reset, here’s the rest of the email from Jim’s stalker. I wonder if she’s got money…
So… how’d you meet? ----------- The Golden Corral website. Let’s eat!
I went to Walmart and picked up some low point foods and more pickles! We were both a little hungry before dinner so we had some Morningstar Farms “chicken” nuggets. Not bad, not bad.
Dessert. Yum. I can’t believe how delicious this was:
There’s many desserts out there that are 1 point. I’m sure they weren’t as yummy.
Jim spent hours on the DC itinerary. He researched, surfed, added, deleted, formatted and calculated. He even figured out rentals vs. bus. vs. The Metro. He calculated costs of using The Metro vs. driving.
What a lazy day…
