It was so nice to have 4 days off. Friday night my daughter and I went to the Gaslamp district in San Diego for the Ghost and historical tour. I had a blast, not so much because it was scary, which it wasnt at all. But, the tour guide was a crack up. But it was a great walk a little over an hour. But I really enjoyed it. I actually learned a lot about our history. Cool.

Saturday, I went to the gym and worked out. Sunday(Hang head in shame) I didnt. Monday, I tried to do more, I did my 3 miles on the treadmill and then worked out on the equipment. I am a bit stiff today. It sucks getting old. But back at  work today and the weather is warming up, so it will be a great day walking.

This weekend I made the family some spice cake, I use a box of spice cake mix and add a can of pumpkin. Thats it, then bake it and they love it.

I made me oatmeal cookies... Now dont laugh but here is the recipe. I use my HMR Oatmeal (dry) and add a bit a diet cola in it, to moisten it. Then I drop little balls of it, flatten it about and bake it. I know it sounds crazy but it is really good and only has the calories of the dry oatmeal. It makes about 4-6 cookies per individual packages.  My son started to eat them and seemed to enjoy them. I asked him "do you like them ? cause they are diet". He stopped and looked at me and umm they are ok, not much flavor.

Later on I catch him eating another and I said "dude (yes I did say dude) dont eat my diet cookies if you dont like them. He said,  I do like them I was just giving you a hard time.
