No, SIl says she will still use it, but she hasn't since Sept. -- she does hcg and gains all her weight back and then does it again....not sure how much she exercises. I don't ask too many questions KWIM ?

sorry about your son in law and the stress...will lift you all up !
Thanks Laura! DH just finished talking with him. God helped a lot, seems to be making head-way. SIL is going to call dd, hopefully they will work things out between them & get out from under this. Will continue to pray!

Ah, that's what my sis did with hers too... used it for a hanger... until they joined a gym. Not sure where it is now, but I gave up & got my own anyway. That's too bad she's in that hcg cycle... seems to do that to a lot of people.

Well DS2 made it home safely from his party last night....... PTL . <3.

I got up early after having a bad dream.... about hell of all things .....really scary dream ( nightmare) !!

I was kinda nauseated last night and had tums and pepto bismol..... and then it came back after I had sausage and egg this morning.....yucky...I went back to bed for about an hour or so. DH remembered we had a Zofran dissolvable tablet, so I tried that after I walked Allie up and down the road 3 times. It worked. Feeling lots better this evening.

We worked on cleaning out some closets and going through some clothes that don't fit us anymore. Put all the Christmas stuff ( which, believe me, is a LOT ) in those bins with lids to go out to storage building. That will free up lots of closet space in the house.

food today :
coffee
1 fried egg with 1 sausage patty

no lunch - a few grapes

Ribeye
broccoli with cheese
a few sauteed mushrooms
I didn't have much appetite so DH finished my steak and mushrooms ;0

I just made Linda's salmon muffins - I LOVE them with Chipolte Mayo !! Oh so good I put them in a freezer ziploc so I can grab a few and take to work .
Tomorrow I will make Cheri's southwestern soup -- love that stuff !
Also, will make LC meatloafs and freeze some of them for work week.

Gotta lot to do tomorrow, hopefully we will get our taxes done too and run a few errands in town.

Have a wonderful evening

Sorry you got sick too! Ah!

Sounds like you got well fast & had a very accomplished day though. That's a big deal cleaning out closets & storing away Christmas stuff!
Hope you both feel really good tomorrow.

Thanks Susan ! There's no wind that strong.....hahaha ...

still 138.8 today too .....

We just got home from running errands and I put 2 roasts in oven ( I'm not much of a roast eater last few years, not sure why ) making them mostly for DH with pot/carrots ~ I might eat one serving ?

Have a lb of bacon in oven too .....then gonna put the mini meatloafs in......
Will fry some cabbage later with bacon and onions and make Cheri's soup for supper.

Then DH and I should be set pretty much for all week at work.

It's overcast cool and drizzling outside. Nasty weather ;/

no , nothing that serious !

Had a slight bump this am ~ DH wanted chinese yesterday in town, I only had a small plate with chicken, broccoli , and green beans ~ guess it's the salt

Up early ~ start back to work today ! Sooner I start , the sooner I'm off

Hoping for a good week. Need to get a little exercise in before I go ~ TTYL !

Yum! Yeah, the salt in that is pretty hefty... usually good for at least 2 lbs water gain. Last time I went I ordered a similar dish to yours, and asked that no sauce, soy sauce, or salt was added. It came to me still looking like it had sauce on it, but I did not retain any water. I can't have soy, so I have to be difficult but its handy. And I enjoyed eating out with no back-lash!
Good for you, getting some exercise before work. Have a great day!
I'm going to work today too... all pastors will be away next 2 days, going to be real quiet. Feels like it should be Sunday today though!
Be blessed!

Thanks Debby, I will pound extra water today to flush it out. That has to be what caused it cause I haven't had anything off plan..
Hope you enjoy your quiet days at work ! ER is very rarely quiet, but hoping for some good shifts this week.

Forgot to mention, we had been looking at RV's and had picked out several we like. We were planning to go to RV show in Austin in 2 weeks since we were already headed to College Station (about an hour from Austin) for a meetup with relatives and were planning to take Shelby with us, since both boys are working that weekend. Well, long story short , we did our taxes yesterday , and for only the 2nd time in 30 yrs WE HAVE TO PAY.......lots !

Guess an RV isn't in our immediate future any more.......oh well,......

Good idea Laura,
Lemon juice & apple cider vinegar will help too. Usually takes me 4 days to loose that...

Bummer about the taxes... hope you find a RV that you can afford!

ER sure wouldn't be boring. Its great that you can help so many people in their hour of crisis.

Wow, that's amazing to be able to eat salty foods. Doesn't make you swell up, huh? Looks like you were satisfied too.
Glad your day went so well.

I've had the pleasure/displeasure of working alone the last 2 days. It comes in handy for doing "high-concentration" book-work. More fun when there's people around though. Tomorrow the pastors come back.

Hope you have a fun valentines day!

Good shift at work, but I didn't sleep well last night AT ALL, so I'm really sleepy. Left 15 minutes early and already had my shower, fixing to hit the hay !

Hope you have a wonderful Valentine's day as well !

Happy Valentines Day
Hope its a good one!
So Laura, do you know what your %'s are? Carb/Fat/Protein ? Are you doing straight Atkins? I'm interested in what everyone's doing. I belong to a group - eat fat to get thin, very interesting the different %'s that you can lose weight on.
Something is making me retain water again I think its the extra carbs (in the form of apples) that I added for a week. Today I'm going lower carb/higher fat, hoping to get rid of it. The good thing about it is, I was thinking I could eat something at the valentines thing tonight, so that will keep me from making the exception. Looking forward to going tonight. We so need marriages to be strengthened in this generation!

Slept pretty well, so hoping today goes better. Hate it when I get like that

Had a LC meal last night after a hot shower, still stressed, I ate a huge bowl of ice cream with hot fudge sauce and fell into bed at 2:30..........wowsers ;/

Just me. Last night was a nightmare at work.....didn't leave at midnight. Got off at 1:40 am !! Then the 40 minute drive home ;///

Going in 30 min - 1 hr late this morning.........I'm exhausted. But only 2 more days . Praying these will be better.

I do not have a great deal of patience on some days..... need to work on that. ER can be so stressful at times

Have a good day people

Ah, so sorry Laura,
I can not imagine how anyone could work a 12 hr. shift. And doing it days in a row must be wearing you out physically. No wonder your fuse is getting short! Hope you have a better day today, some sunshine to brighten it up!

WARNING ~~ major venting here...... just skip if you want !


Yes Debby I am tired to the core, but also have worked with a pain of a Dr 3 shifts this week and he and I are like OIL and WATER....... so frustrating and I keep telling myself to chill out and Pray before the shift that I can just ignore him. But, it's not working...... we just grate on each other and I end up being just as sarcastic as he is !!

I hate it, cause I end up having a bad day because he is so arrogant and "I am the Dr" crap...... makes me nuts ;/
I love most of our Dr's and we all get along great, but me and this one don't.

oh well, one more day. He's been having some issues and pt complaints so maybe he won't be coming much longer. There is a group and if one doesn't work out, they just don't assign them shifts at that hosp anymore...... here's hoping .

Did the stairs at work up and down and some stretching...... ready to walk on these days off ! Praying for great weather.

Food has been terrible. I ate 3 days ago carby food and awakened the carb beast in myself ;/ Ugh. I know I can get right back on LC with no problem, but it makes me mad that we ( I'm using that loosely) can't all eat normal food occas without a 2-3 lb gain instantly ! What a pain !

ok, took benadryl ( something at work broke me out in a rash on my arms right before I left work ) and Melatonin, so hope I can simmer down from you know who, and get some sleep . One more shift ! Yea ! ~~ wondering if someone came through ER with cat hair on them ~ wow, I am soooooo allergic to cats and really don't like them at all.

night all.

No actually I woke up with a HORRIBLE migraine...full blown, nauseated and miserable. Got to work and had to RUN in the building and had horrible diarrhea ( TMI I know ) - and felt so nauseous. Thank the Good Lord, we weren't busy at 1st and eventually the med kicked in and I felt better by 2-3 pm.....boy,did I feel awful before that. I actually went into the trauma room teary eyed from the pain and had to pull myself together, it was that bad......

Great Dr though, she was new there and so good ! Grateful for that !

Really busy tonight at work...... several really really sick pts. So glad I am now off !

DS2 is here, asleep on the couch. He and GF have been here since Fri and this is the 1st time I've laid eyes on him, and he's asleep GF went home - she has school in am and he wants DH to go with him to look at a house in the morning. They have been asleep when I get home at night and gone each morning when I wake up. Maybe I'll see him tomorrow when he and I are both awake !

no exercise today
did not eat good
tomorrow is another day.....and I'm off so I can get back on track after this AWFUL week !

Have a good night !

Is this the last day of your shift? Hope so!
Be blessed with an awesome day!
