I am home for the weekend in Fort Wayne, but I did not have an easy road getting there last night.
That would be my car, with a giant flat tire on the highway. Luckily, it didn’t cause any accidents and I was safely able to pull of the road. Shortly after I pulled to the side, a kind police officer stopped to help me out, call the tow truck, and wait with me until everything was finished. He even stopped traffic on the highway to get everything moved over into the far lane. What great help he was!! I couldn’t thank him enough.
After my adventure on the highway, I finally ended up at home about an hour later than planned. Thankfully, my mom had a delicious meal of salmon, sweet potatoes, and veggies all plated up for me and ready to go. I was hungry and the food tasted good!
My mom made a new rub for the sweet potatoes and salmon that is to die for! Don’t worry, I got the recipe and will share later 😉
My mom and I then spent a good portion of the evening trying to photograph our dogs…we finally gave up and deemed them both cute in person, but horribly un-photogenic!!
Today, Mom and I got up nice and early to head to a diner owned by one of her friends. Literally, they just reopened the doors on Tuesday!! I’ll go into more detail on Minnie’s diner in a later post 😉
We both had veggie omelettes, mom’s with a side of potatoes
and mine with a side on plain oats. I seriously think that was on of the biggest bowls of oats I have ever seen! Tasty, but I couldn’t finish it.
We then ran a couple of errands including mailing a package to a special giveaway winner (yes, I know the giveaway was a while ago, but we have been in contact and she understands!) It should be there by Monday!
Next on the agenda was Body Pump. I had to have a sub teach my class for today in Indianapolis, but I made up for it by attending class as a participant this morning. I upped my weights today…and all I can say is OUCH!!! (in a good way of course!)
Then, it was time to head home, shower, and eat some lunch. For me, lunch included tuna with some low fat cottage cheese, cucumbers and carrots, some leftover sweet potatoes from last night, and grapes and berries. So summery and tasty!
Now, I am off to get a new tire for my car, meet up with a friend, and mom is at a baby shower. Enjoy your Saturday!
