Good morning!!!

Good morning girls!

I am sure you are all scrathcing your heads saying to yourselves "OMG, Sherri is blogging today!" lol. Today is a day off from work but I have so much to do around the house it isnt funny! My husbands aunt died about 1 week ago (she was 85) and her daughters, Shirley (lives here in Erie), Patty (from Michigan) & Debbie who calls herself Jesse (okie dookie...whatever!) is from Wisconsin called the other night asking if they could stop for a visit. So you know what that means...I gotta scramble to clean the house & make something for dessert to entertain. My tendonitis is really acting up lately so its been hard to be on my feet alot which makes things more difficult. These darned feet of mine!!! I am going to make an apple pie (I make the yummiest apple crumb pie....just sayin! hee hee!) and I will put on a pot of decaf coffee & thats all she wrote. I need to dust & vacuum the downstairs which is a huge chore (why cant I have a cleaning lady again??? I had one for about a year a few years back & can I tell you, it was the best money I ever spent!). I really dont enjoy cleaning (who does, right?) but I do love a nice clean house ! I have a mandatory meeting at work tonight too at 6:30 pm so gotta run & do that too. Oy! No day off for me!!! Ok, do I sound like I am whining???  well yes, yes I am!!! hahaha!  Can you tell I have had my morning coffee? I am full of it today! hee hee!

So I am going to make this short & sweet. I hope you are all doing great & are having a skinny start to your week. I feel great today (outside of the feet) & the scale looked great this morning which started my week off on a good note. I am going to try to eat more whole foods & keep processed foods to a minimum. I really think that eating clean & exercise are the secrets to success for me. I always seem to have a good week when I eat well & move more.

Have a Happy Monday!!
Love & Hugs to you!



  1. I know it sounds like a lot of work, but I hope you have fun with all the visitors.
    I wish I had a cleaning lady too - don't we all.
    I would love just one bite of that pie. :-)
    Take some time to rest for yourself and have a great day :-)

  2. Have a great 'busy' day today - I know when I have a big list of things to do like that it can be kind of nice to make a physical list and actually check them off when done. Feels great and you feel like you've accomplished so much! I wish I had a cleaning lady too.

  3. Sherri, your post was cracking me up! You have such a spunky attitude today! Sorry your feet are bothering you though, it's hard to get things done when you're in pain. I love company but I'm like you, I have to run around and get things looking like I live in a orderly, clean house all the time! Good idea about eating real foods and not processed - I think that is one of the keys to health and weight loss!

  4. Sherri, I think I need some coffee to keep up with you lol. Sorry to hear about your feet still bothering you. I can feel your pain because I am having problems with tendonitis in my shoulder right now. A housekeeper would be great! Now that my husband is not working a full time job he is gonna be my cleaner. Hope you feel better.

  5. Wait til you hear this girl...they called at 5pm & CANCELLED!!!! Arrgh!!! Oh well, at least the lower level of my house is clean & my family is happy that they get to eat the whole pie themselves. Now on to cleaning the upstairs! That will have to be Friday, my next day off. I did clean 2 really big closets & my kids bonus room so only have to do the bedrooms & the bathrooms. I still hate cleaning! I had a taste of the pie & it was fab!!! Rosie, if you lived closer you most def would get a couple of bites! :)

  6. I meant to say "girls" in the opening sentence. Sorry! ITs early.

  7. A house keeper/cook sounds good to me.
    I like your goals...You're going to even feel better eating wholesome foods-good fuel!

  8. Sherri, you are so funny! That is a bummer that they canceled but you sure got a lot done! I am sorry about your feet. I can only imagine that it is really hard to want to be up and moving all the time when they hurt. Take care of yourself and don't over do.
    I LOVE apple crumb pie...yummy....
    It was fun to read your blog on a day that wasn't your usual! Keep up the good work:)

  9. Hi Sherri, I'd love some of that apple pie too. I bet it smelled devine. That's the best part of baking, other than the eating, of course ;). I hope you accomplish all of your goals for the day. Sorry to hear about your tendonitis. Feel better.

  10. Sherri, reading this post a little late. What a bummer that they cancelled! Just wanted to say thanks so much for what you wrote on my blog today. You are such a sweet person and I so wish we lived closer because we would so be best buddies. I can tell we're alot alike. Continued success to you. I am pulling for you, as you are for me! Love you back girlfriend!! XOXO

  11. Congrats on your weight loss! I love a clean house and often need a good excuse to get it that way. Im lousy at that! Take care of yourself and dont work too hard!
