Is this two days in a row that I’ve had kinda weird days or was there a day in between? I can’t remember but this has been such a crazy day.
We haven’t been eating breakfast on the diet but I was going to get a haircut and then going to maybe Hobby Lobby and maybe Walmart so I didn’t want to be starving for fear I’d go to Chick Fil A and get fried chicken strips, yummy hot waffle fries and a shake. I would do that! So, I fixed breakfast.
My plate: One egg yolk, buckboard bacon and avocado.
I fix Vince’s eggs/plate first, then my own. I have forgotten that when I was in MO last, Vince taught Rita to expect an egg when we get eggs. Speck always got eggs but I was in the habit of giving him an egg, and then when Rita came along, they both got eggs for breakfast but now, I never remember to fix hers. I fixed Vince’s plate. He started eating. I went to fix mine and there was Rita . . wanting her egg. Since it has to cool before I give it to her, I fixed her egg, then set it aside while I fixed mine. By the time my plate was fixed, Rita’s egg was cool so I gave it to her, sat down and . . Vince was finished eating. I should have known at that point that my plans for the day were not going to happen.
Before I cooked, I said to Vince “Is bacon, eggs and avocado ok?” Really? How much else can we have on the keto diet? He said “I think I’d rather have ham!” WHAT? It was my fresh batch of buckboard bacon. I guess I gave him one of “those” looks because he said “What’s wrong?” I said “It’s my buckboard bacon!” He said “Oh, I forgot. Yes, I’ll have that!”
We had a couple of questions for someone in the property tax office and Vince had called yesterday and it was late in the day and they didn’t call him back so he called again this morning. They were all in a meeting so he sat around and waited and they never called so he went outside.
Just as I was getting ready to leave for my hair cut, his phone rang so I answered it and it was the property tax people. I asked the questions I thought he would have asked, all the while knowing I needed to hurry up to get to my appointment on time. I hung up, grabbed my purse and ran out the door. I saw Vince, told him what the answers were, got in my car, had barely gotten on the highway and remembered there was another question I had not asked. I was going to call the tax people back and realized . . I left my phone on the table. I feel so lost without my phone. The crazy thing is I don’t even know Vince’s phone number! It’s in my phone . . not in my head. I was thinking . . what if I need him and someone will let me use their phone but I don’t know his number. I thought . . I can call Chad. I know his number. It’s one number different from my number or I wouldn’t know his number. He could give me Vince’s phone number. But, if Chad is at work, he isn’t going to answer the phone! I didn’t have time to go back and get my phone. After all . . we lived without cell phones for so many years, I should be able to go to town and back without my phone . . but I didn’t like that at all.
Got the hair cut, decided not to go to Hobby Lobby because without my phone, I wouldn’t have the 40% off coupon, went to Walmart, came home and told Vince “I forgot my phone at home”. He said “No problem . . I didn’t try to call you.” Well . . it wasn’t YOU trying to call ME that concerned me.
Don’t even ask me what happened after I got home because I truly thought I’d sit and knit for hours and hours. I didn’t but I wasn’t even doing anything to keep me from knitting. I planted a few seeds in pots in the greenhouse. I walked around and looked in some of the bluebird boxes. I checked out all the fruit trees to see how they’re doing. That surely didn’t take 5 hours so .. I wasted most of today.
In my mind, I thought I could get three colors of yarn done on the Adventurer Scarf today. I even wound three skeins of yarn this morning before breakfast. Now I doubt I’ll get one full color completed.
Yep . . there was a whole lot of nothing constructive happening here today. I think that’s what happens when I have to leave the house. It just throws my whole day out of whack. Today is Thursday, right? I hope I don’t have to leave the house again til at least Wednesday!
Janet Bland says
We are supposed to have rain starting tomorrow through next Thursday. I hope I don’t have to leave the house except for church on Sunday.
When I was doing Keto I’d get like that every once in a while but it would pass by the next day. I hate days like that because I feel like I’ve wasted day of my life.
Judy Laquidara says
I wish I could blame this on keto. I have my routine at home and any break in my routine just throws everything into chaos. It’s been that way for years.
Dot Murdoch says
You’re retired Judy….you’re allowed to have days like that…..Take it from one who knows….Dot in Pa…..
I’m not trying to tempt you, but Chick-fil-a has incredible grilled chicken nuggets. They are my usual order. I can’t help you on the waffle fries, though. They are the yummiest things ever…
I think a day of doing nothing sounds incredible. As others said, you’re retired. You can have a day of nothing. As my retired cousin says, “every day is Saturday”. Yes, I’m jealous of him. 🙂

I charge my phone every morning. So, if I plan to go to town I put my car keys with the phone so I do not forget it. It is a what if moment every time I leave my phone at home. I have an index card pinned to my closet wall for vacation items to take and what to turn off before leaving. Maybe I should get a to do list for leaving the house. And I am always thinking how did this day get away from me without getting anything accomplished.
Good to know I’m not the only one who gets to the end of the day and doesn’t know what I did to use all those hours!
