Yesterday was another day of cleaning etc.  Having dogs really gets the carpets dirty so we rented a carpet shampooer and did the bedroom, stairs and slide carpets.  We replaced the carpet in the living room last year with laminate.  Once we finished that we started reorganizing everything in the kitchen and bedroom cupboards.  It will be like having a new 5er when we are done.

A month ago Ira and I changed our way of eating.  We have cut down on carbs, sugars, fat and salt.  This has resulted in a weight loss of about 15 pounds each and as a reward Ira decided to take me out for dinner.  We went to Olive Garden for soup salad and bread sticks.  We did NOT eat the bread sticks.  I am so proud of myself.  When we left the restaurant Ira headed north.  I didn't know where he was heading and he was being quite secretive.  About 10 minutes later he pulls into the local stock car track for the nights racing.  It was great.  I haven't been to the races for way too many years and I thought it was out of my blood.  When those cars came out of turn 4 for the green flag I found out it definitely wasn't.  That same ole thrill run right through me.  Of course now he has released a monster.  I can't wait to go again.  Hopefully we can take in some races across the country.  What a nice surprise. 

Well that is about it for the past few days here in sunny Florida.  Safe travels out there and maybe we will meet down the road one day.
