thanks for all the kind words about Dustin and his service dog. Y'all are great. I keep praying for healing for him ~ and actually his sister Kendra too , she has no symptoms but has the disease, has been told to never have children ~ But , all in God's time I guess. Very hard.......

Would appreciate prayers for them both from all you prayer warriors out there !

Big change in plans yesterday. Had argument with DH, didn't go shopping, .......blah blah blah...... bummed out.

Hope you all have a nice Sunday

Talked it out. We always do...... that's how we've stayed married for over 30 yrs !

We are fixing to go shopping ~~ we have been dog sitting Snickers all weekend and DS2 and GF will be by soon to pick her up. May let them take Allie home with them for the day while we are gone.

Scale this am
Gave me 2 different readings ~ I always weigh and move the scale and weigh again.
141.0 and 140.4
Drives me crazy when it does that. I re-weighed several times and it kept giving both. So...... I will assume 141.0 is correct I guess.

Will have to cook when we get home. Planning to try a new chicken recipe and make beef tips/mashed potatoes for DH and DS1 who is coming later tonight .
Working 1/2 shift tomorrow 1-7 and have eye appt before work.

Working days Tues - Fri 7-7 !!! It will give me extra time to pack and pick up last minute things, but boy will it be a shock to my system to get up at 4:30 am !!

Supposed to rain later.....hope it cools off some

Congratulations! Wonderful news.
Looks like a real "skinny" day! Curious to see what happens to the scale.

Night, Laura. Well, it's almost morning here. Just about 6 am and I'm still awake. It happens sometimes. It's my biorhythm so I can't fight it too much. Have a lovely day!!!

Thanks so much ! ha ! Gail nope I don't look great, but I look better than I did 2 yrs ago, so I am satisfied.

Scale 140.8 ~~~ adding back more eggs today. Nothing I have eaten the last 2 days should have caused weight to bounce ~ ?? So , more eggs it is !

Woke up at 7:20 without the alarm ! I had it set for 7:30 and thought i would die this am when I had to get up.....but nope woke up and was ready to get up. Went to bed at midnight though so that was good.

Eggs boiling, wash going, bacon in the oven and drinking coffee and it's not even 8am ! Where is Laura and what did y'all do with her body ??? lol !!

light rain today..... hope my package from Amazon shows up !

Have a great day ladies !

It was lightly raining here today too, Laura. I guess it poured at the farm earlier but it was just light rain while I was there. I didn't see any rivers running through the property so it couldn't have lasted long.

Have a nice night, ladies.

Hi all !

Quick hello ~~ have to hit the hay early

Good eye appt ~ still trying to find the best contact lenses for me -- I have weird rx and a stigmatism too !

1/2 shift went well. Still tired too ...... I got up so early, not really used to that.

ER Doc looked at my ankle and said I should have been on antibiotics the last 5 days ~~ uh oh ~~ he couldn't believe with all the swelling and the fact that it's STILL hurting that I didn't get antibiotics for it. I said "well, I'm gonna be getting in the water on my cruise, so I'll take them " I hate Antibiotics !!!
He put me on a real strong one for 7 days.......ugh....... but, yes it's swollen and sore. Can't post pics for some reason my phone won't sync them onto computer the last week or so. ????


Food was good today too :
B - 1 HB egg and 3 slices of bacon
L - small salad with deli turkey, 1/2 HB egg, pimento cheese and celery sticks (2)
s- greek yogurt with crystal light
D - boiled shrimp - a handful ~

I came home and immediately cut up a cabbage to make a recipe of it wrapped in foil
and made the chicken recipe i put on FB the other day. Oh my gosh, I really didn't feel like cooking, but I can take it to work tomorrow It looks so darn good !! But I drank several glasses of tea and ate the shrimp and now I'm not hungry ! lol

Boys were both here and had bowls of stew with DH . Nice to have them all around the table when I got home I do miss them so much ..... <3

have a great night ladies ! Will try to check in with you all tomorrow

Oh no! I wish you'd gotten your foot checked out sooner. You work in the ER, you silly woman! Anyway, I'm glad you're going to be feeling much better soon. Antibiotics are a necessary evil sometimes. Some people do take them for every little thing, though. Better to not jump too soon. Super bugs are made that way, as you know.

Enjoy your evening.

Yesterday was a TERRIBLE day at work. We ran our Bu**s off ! All day..... never got a lunch break.......it was just awful. I was so super exhausted by 7 and still finishing charts, then DH gets there for night shift and says our A/C unit at home is out again !!! We spent major $$$ a couple of yrs ago for this unit, 3rd time it's gone out...... thank goodness for warranty, but I was still waiting up for repair guy at 9:30 and was so dang tired, DH called and told them just to come today. Thankfully we have an a/c unit in the window in the bedroom and fans. So my room and bathroom were cool. DS1 went to stay the night with a friend. What a mess of a day.

I am still so tired....... going to cancel my pedi appt for tomorrow night after work. Ankle is still too sore, don't want to mess with it. Haven't packed yet !! I thought after work each night I would get some done. Not yet. Will have to be tonight or tomorrow night. And need to do last minute laundry after work tomorrow night.

oh well, i'm just grumpy and tired i guess.

Weight up : 141.6
food yesterday
almond milk/chia seeds
deli meat
mixed fruit

last night after work
chicken ( new recipe ) - delicious ! ( course I was starving )
cabbage with bacon
greek yogurt with CL mix
yep, I was super hungry !!!!

hopefully today is better, can't hardly be worse

Have a great day everyone ! Will catch up on other threads later I guess. Gotta get ready !

Wow, hope today went really well for you!
I'm getting so excited for your cruise! Its coming, its coming! Yippee!

Eating late & swollen foot... would effect the scale. Hope you get everything back to normal today.

See you later!

Wow. Talk about adding insult to injury! The last thing you need after a shift like that is to have no a/c in TX. Thank the Lord you had the window a/c for a back-up. Try and rest so you can work up the energy to pack.

Hi all.... ended up staying an hour late again today. Yikes, the ER is a madhouse again this week !! I'm too old for this lol !

DS1 is asleep on the couch. DS2 and GF just picked up her ring ( it's beautiful ) and went to tell her parents. <3

Left DH at work in the middle of the chaos. We don't see each other this week except for a minute when we change shifts.....kinda crazy.......

scale was still up this morning....... ate my food and drank lots so I'll just do the best I can. It's dark every night when I get home and I'm pooped. I really was hoping I would get home early enough each night to walk Allie real quick, but NO.

doing a load of laundry and fixing to hit the hay ! hope everyone is doing well !

Scale STS 141.6 ....... I banged the darn thing on the floor and moved it around ... no luck ;/

Tired . 2 days left... I can do this. Praying for a pleasant day and getting home on time. I have so much to do and don't even care.

Woke up to terrible leg cramps at 3:15 and 4:45 - different legs, so now they are both sore ! Took Potassium this morning and will take another dose tonight... wow ! Those things hurt !!!!

Have a blessed day everyone !

Ouch! Cramps in both legs? You're really on a roll there, girlfriend. Sorry work has been crazy and happy the a/c is blasting away now. It must suck that you and DH work opposite shifts. Is that by design or necessity? I'd love to hear some of your ER adventures sometime, maybe when you're back from your Cruise and have told us all about that!

May you be crampless tonight and have a very good day at work.

No Cheryl, only working days this week. Normally I do 12-12 and DH comes in at 7p -- so we work together till midnight ..... but this week I'm doing 7a-7p and he does 7p-7a

Thanks Gail ! You are always so positive !

Pretty good day, clocked out and a code came in......couldn't leave.... left almost an hour late again ! Wow ! Can't wait till tomorrow's over !

yes, there are lots of ER stories to be told....... some funny, some not so funny !

Going to bed early, need to pack but just too tired. Have a great night everyone !

Ah, sorry you had such a long day. Hope the magnesium helps your cramps. I didn't know it helped.
At least you have a nice, quiet house to sleep in!
