Tough day. There was a bag of potato chips I couldn't leave alone. The good news is they are gone. They bad news is they are gone in my stomach.
Still, since I think my normal eating is easily 2000+, even the 1600's are a success, of sorts.
Iggy's visit to the vet yesterday was $25, and it was the last one. His ears are clearer, if not completely clear. He seems to have a ball of wax in one ear which may loosen on its own. I still have drops to put in. He'll get a re-check when he goes in for his annual.
I did another load of laundry yesterday.
In the interest of trying to keep my credit card bill payable, I'm not going to buy an airline ticket. I will make the trip to Florida by car, after the CC is paid off. I have the time, and I have the skills to make it cheap. Last time I did this I saved $$ over what the plane fare would have been. And I rather enjoy a road trip, even though this is a long one.
I have ten items on my grocery list, so I guess it is time to go shop. I've been doing well at stretching my food and avoiding waste, so I'm not feeling any urgency to shop. But I have to remember that if I buy more than ten items, I have a hard time carrying them up the stairs. I had enough of a struggle yesterday, carrying Iggy in his case. (Glad that's done for a while!)
I've settled on my reunion outfit. Plain slacks, a dressy top, kitten heels. I hope I hit the right blend of dressy and casual. But if not, I won't worry about it.
I have a coupon for a free mani-pedi, so I'll be getting that before I go. I'll probably need a hair trim, too.
HBO is airing its free watchathon on Xfinity on Demand this week, so I am enjoying some good movies. 5 Floors Up, A Little Chaos, The Fault in Our Stars. I have a couple of DVD's from the library, but I may just try to renew them so I can take full advantage of the free movies this week. I think Cinemax (?) is also free this week. I may never leave the couch!

Bleah, sorry, didn't know the double less-thans commented out my txt. Pls delete first comment.
Depends on the size of the bag of chips. I write as someone who had wicked salt-starch addiction. My kid brought a 1.7oz bag of chips for me recently: took me two days to eat. I used to go through 9oz bag in 45 minutes, then wonder how, when I reduced my caloric intake, I ended up with a 35-inch waist, ballooning out of my size 12s. Now I'm at 31-inch waist (45% Waist-to-height ratio), 21.6 BMI, can't get into size 12s without a belt to cinch them up, and I still weaken - had 2 oz of homemade seasoned sweet potato chips with chipotle mayo yesterday, but I didn't have it alone.
