I had blogged that my friend, Wendy and I are going to Provincetown for a few days on a girls trip away. Dan’s co-worker Dianne was kind enough to let us rent her gorgeous condo right on the beach. Anyway, Wendy and I went down to pay her today and she says “oh, sorry, you don’t owe me as much as I told you you did”. Wendy and I looked at each other and asked “How come” and Dianne told us that Dan had already paid for half of it as a surprise!
Well, we were both sort of shell shocked as Dianne handed us money back.
I had a feeling something was up because I found a note yesterday that said “get money” written on a brown paper napkin. Now, I know Dan and he is one of the most generous people I know, truly, so it surprised me but it didn’t. He’s done things like this in the past many times before.
So, don’t tell him but we are going to have to buy him a nice gift while we are in P-Town. Not sure what but there are all kinds of interesting things we could bring back!
My good eating habits continue and I am feeling really good about it. Today I had a blackberry and cherry shake for breakfast which was really good.
For lunch I had a scoop of chicken salad and I brought my roasted vegetables with me and had them with the chicken salad. It was such a good lunch.
I had bought fresh strawberries and I had some of them with Cinnamon and cream cheese from Laughing Cow for a snack after lunch. Yum.
For dinner we will have left over Chinese food , which for me, was Beef and Broccoli I was starving the other night when we had it and I ate a lot so there isn’t a whole lot left but it’ll do.
Portion control has always been an issue for me but lately I have been doing really well eating smaller portions and being fine with it. Maybe it’s the heat, who knows. I do love to eat…
Speaking of eating, Wendy and I were planning on what food to bring with us on our trip. We both agreed to stick with fruit and healthier snacks rather than chips, cookies and junk food. I am planning on a meal of perhaps fish and chips and there is a pizza place I love so I am going to eat some not so healthy foods while I am there. I will only get a slice of the pizza and not a whole one and I may get a baked fish instead of fried. We’ll have to see, but I do want to eat what I want within reason and not watch everything I put in my mouth. So, that means I eat healthy now.
We are looking into Sand Dune rides and maybe a sunset sail boat excursion. The weather is supposed to be beautiful and I can’t wait to sit on the deck overlooking the ocean with my Blue Moon and good friend.
With money in our pockets to spend!
Wendy and I both thank Dan for his generosity and we will have a good time.
