I Hate Computers

I hate computers.  Actually, I hate setting them up and troubleshooting issues. Like right now I can't watch Netflix.  I don't know if it's because of an outage or if something is wrong with my computer/connection.  The loading icon just keeps circling round and round.

I also have no clue how to set this blasted thing up.  It's a brand new Lenovo ideapad with touchscreen and the only thing I do with it is blog and watch Netflix.  Now all I can do is blog at the moment.  Sigh.... Why could I not be blessed with a techie personality?  I envy those people!


National Champions

I am so happy!  My Buckeyes are the National Champions!  We had so much fun watching the game last night.  My Facebook and Twitter pages are filled!

It's my last day here in Oklahoma.  I head back to the ICT tomorrow, back to the daily grind.  I've got the late shift so that means the day will be long, starting off with a 2 hour drive.  I need to leave a little bit early because I am picking up my new iPhone.  Yay!  Can't wait.  The Kid already has his, so he's been updated.  I had to order the one I wanted, so mom gets to wait.

Stephen is ordering a screen protector and case for the new tablet I got him.  I already know he's going to use it for games and watching the boob tube.  It may even take the place of his computer that he has hooked up to that monster size 70" tv screen.  Goodness sakes.  My emails never looked so big.

Well, I need to get started on laundry.  Better get lunch going as well.

Monday Brunch

Good morning.  I know it's almost afternoon.  That's okay.  I stayed up until 3 am and didn't wake up until 10:30.  It's like going back to my youth!  Stay up all night, sleep in the next day.  Not much going on this morning.  I am making brunch.  Right now the fried potatoes are working their magic in the frying pan. One must not interrupt fried potatoes.  So many make the mistake of constantly flipping them.  You have to let them crisp up people!  Let them get a brown crunchy coat on it before you touch them.  I hand sliced the potatoes this morning.  It's the best way to do it!  Added a little olive oil in the pan, got it hot.  Then threw in the russets.  I always put a lid on my potatoes so it will cook thoroughly.  They still crisp up real nice.  Yumm!

I am also making a veggie omelet with sweet peppers, onions and goat cheese.  The toast will be made last.  It's made with the 21 grain bread from Sprouts I am so fond of.  This bread doesn't need any butter.  It's delicious!

Well, the potatoes are about done, which means I need to whip up these omelets and toast so Stephen can eat like a king.  There is something about cooking your own meal that makes it extra special when sharing it with someone you love.

Coconut Creme Pie

It's one of my favorites.  And I am eating it for dessert.  Dinner was great.  We went to Red Rock Canyon.  I had the veggie plate because it was lighter and Stephen ordered the chicken enchiladas.

I have been doing a pescetarian diet for the past week, so veggies seemed light and not heavy.  I have only eaten fish, no flesh.  I know that sounds weird, but I can already tell a difference.  It's helped with digestion big time.  I noticed that dairy makes me constipated, so that has been minimal as well.   Let's see if I can lose any weight!

Anyway, we are watching Breaking Bad on Netflix.  We both really like the series.  Hope you all had a great weekend.  I still have two more days off.  Yippee!


Date Night

I told you my boyfriend loves football.  The best way to get him out is to bet on the game.  We bet on the Colts vs. Broncos game.  He lost.  So now I win a date night to anywhere I want for dinner.  Yay me!  Glad I picked the right team.  And since Wes Welker plays for the Denver Broncos and is from Oklahoma City, well, you know we aren't going there for dinner!  Ha!

I am super excited about dinner tonight.  I think we may go to Red Rock Canyon.  It's one of my favorite places.  Or we may try Zorba's tonight.  It's Mediterranean.  Not sure if Stephen is up for any of it, but I don't really care.  A bet is a bet.  And he complained I was a sore loser the last time, so he better deliver.

I'll fill you in later on how it went.  Yay!  SO EXCITED!
