Woke up this morning later the usual…..in other words, I woke up late….which was not a good way to start the day. Did not sleep well, my stomach was killing all night into the morning. It hurts so much it is giving me a headache…..just feel awful.
Manage to get ready to go into the office with Dan, a little slow but I did it. Headache is making it very hard for me to get my thoughts together (which is making it difficult to compete my thoughts to update blog….taking forever) and besides that my sugar has been so high, I feel like my heart is pounding out of my chest…….I am a total mess!!!!! Needless to say I just want the day to end……so I can go home and be a couch potatoe……yes, I am ready to give in. On that note…..I am signing off.
Back to Reality……It is nice to be back home in my own bed and to my normal food, all that eating out just killed my stomach more than usual, but it did not stop me from enjoying the moment.
Although it is going to be a short week……..a lot of things going on. Following up with clients, nail appointments, massive food shopping (the refridge was very bare), mountains of laundry (I think we have extra people living with us)….and most of all planning/preparing for Sunday’s Jet game…….Dan and I are going to tailgate…..just the two of us…..excited to use Dan’s new toy…..THE GRILL!!!!!!! Looking forward to it, the weather is supposed to be beautiful. Another exciting adventure with my Buddy, I think we are planning on doing grilled chicken kabobs. I have to get back on my diet…..Saint Marrten is in November….time is just going to fly by….and I need all the time in the world to be suit worthy. Saturday looks like we are heading South again.
I just want to say, I am so glad that August is over it was a horrible month. September has to be better!!!!!!! The fall is coming, my favorite season……looking forward to positive things.
I must say this was a great weekend, spent with my best friend and my rock. Dan decided to take me to Atlantic City for a long weekend. We went down on Saturday, left early to beat the shore traffic…….we were very lucky because we did not sit in any at all. We checked in at the Borgota , put stuff in the room and headed to the boardwalk to walk around and people watch. Dan and I love to sit on the boardwalk, catch some sun and watch the people walk by…..(very entertaining and scary at the same time….some very strange people in this world). We then took a final walk thru the Showboat before it’s closing. We return to the Borgota, where we played some slots…had some martinis..and laughed so much…. then called it a night, we had a really good time .
Next morning we woke up early and had room service…..bagels with salmon and lox…..my favorite ( of course I would be in pain the the rest of the day…..but it was worth it). We got our seats to lay by the pool…. where we soaked up the sun, the salt water breeze and just relaxed and enjoyed the day, there was no rush to be any where……we showered and got ready to have dinner at our favorite Asian/Japanese Restraurant there…..we had an absolutely great dinner, nice conversation and laughs (it is amazing that we are always together and never run out of things to talk about…..I just love our relationship)….we went to the casino….gambled won a $1000, and then we hit a progressive jackpot for $1500……just a great time and so exciting…..I never win, but with Dan, together as a Team, we are always winners….In more than one way, for me at least.
We also went to see the Revel before the doors closed…..such a shame…..a beautiful place…..but so big and a different group of people….very young crowd. I like the Borgota much better….but we saw and experienced it ….played and did not win. We then went back on the boardwalk and people watched for a little and got some sun….before going to the outlets to shop. Dan and I got sneakers…..I got a pair of black Converse……I AM JUST TO COOL!!!!!!
Monday, we ended the wonderful get away, taking care of serious and sad business…..we went back to Dan’s parents house to meet some people that were interested in buying some of his parents furniture…..Dan said it was his Labor Day Sale…buy one take/get many free….big clearance. We donated/gave pieces away to really nice people that really needed it…..which was rewarding. It was a difficult time for Dan, he was quite and not very talkative……which was understandable, but it broke my heart inside. But by the time we left, he was in a little better spirits knowing he did something good for people in need. Still a lot to do down there, now the nightmare of renovations and getting the house ready to put on market…..many more trips down to Toms River.
The whole weekend was just perfect…..even the ride back home was good….no traffic which was amazing. I just want to say thank you Dan for a great time…..I love spend every moment with you.
