Dang! I lost 3 pounds and got into the almonds and gained them back. Poop. But I'm not sweating it because I did eat a whole bag of Honey Roasted Cashew Halves and that was like 9 MILLION calories and I am maintaining. Not that I am making a practice of this, nor do I plan to, but even after the ablation I am still having normal PMS symptoms. LOL Guess I can't get away from them. LOL
I didn't work out today because the past 2 days were causing me a little pain in my chest when I was riding the bike. Nothing in my body felt right, so today was the day to chill out.
I shaved Jacko and he's not talking to me right now, but he does look like he's lost at least 5 pounds. I'm not trying to shave him down, but keeping him groomed is essential, and then there is the fact that he is severely overweight and it's easier to keep an eye on him with his hair a little shorter. And he's overweight because he's my kid. HAHA
Did I tell you guys that my mother was referred to as my sister the other day when we were checking out of Dollar General? Oh yes. 3 days after her 64th birthday and the clerk says "Are y'all sisters?" I wanted to laugh but I groaned and told her that she was my mother. My mom was just beaming and glowing and looking like she wasn't sure is she should laugh or pee herself in public. It's a huge compliment though because mom only looks 45. No way she looks 64.
Anyway, I have more blood work for the thyroid follow-up tomorrow to see if the Synthroid is working. I hope it is because I do feel a bit better... except for the Bell's Palsy, which is still painful, and Das Boot wrecking my hip and back. And then I have follow up with one doctor. I am also making inquiries into getting my droopy eyelid fixed because its getting harder and harder to see out of that eye. And the shingles are confined to my ear, which is good for now. I'm glad it didn't spread, but I have done everything I can to avoid touching my ear except to clean it. LOL
I've been talking to this guy for a few weeks online. He's cute and quite interesting. And today, he noticed that we were born on the same day - 8 years apart. He lives on a farm, and I grew up on one. We actually have a lot in common, especially our skewed sense of humor, and he's just a nice guy. But he live in Nebraska! UGH!! LOL He's an engineer and I find myself comparing him to Alaska Man. Same build, same deep voice, but this guy can sing, act, do accents and all kinds of cool stuff. He's the talented Aquarius, whereas I am the lost and wandering Aquarius. LOL. So I'm happy to know that at different time of the day when he thinks of me, he sends me a text that just says "kisses", and he thinks my body looks fantastic... fat roll and all. And he's no slouch and I'm sure he has other women in his life but it's just nice to know that there is someone that can fill in the space where Alaska Man used to be. It means a lot just to know that someone thinks of me often. Here's what he looks like and I will call him Nebraska Man. LOL!! Sounds so much like Alaska Man, though. HAHA
Anyway, he gives me something to think about and one day maybe we will meet and see what happens, but I think he will be a friend for a long time to come.
I hope you are all getting tucked in tight this evening, doing what you can to stay warm, and hugging your favorite furperson - even if it is your hubby. LOL
Peace, Love, and Meeting Kindred Spirits,

Well, I can assure you that dragging around this medieveal torture device... Das Boot... is evidently a workout. I am just afraid that now I will have one butt cheek exercised more than the other! HAHA
And the reason I am not on cloud 9 is because this boot is so heavy, I would have fallen through even cloud 1. LOL
The weather is getting a little nicer but still a bit chilly. I am thinking positive thoughts on a daily basis and trying to see things in a pretty light. I am trying to embrace the good and not even look at the ugly right now. Especially my ear, which is where my Shingles has decided to live.
And my friend and I are okay. I had to tell her what the issue was because I really can't stand us not being cool with each other, and she did say she was being overly negative but she just cant understand how there is always something wrong with me. Gee, me neither. It's like I begged and pleased for a Shingles outbreak and for my face to not fully respond when I smile. Yep those are the things I WANT to happen. If I were to ask for a medical issue, it would be that my boobs became inflamed and were 2 sizes larger and super full and perky. Know what I mean? So we laughed about that. It was even better because my mom was there and we both got to see my little boyfriend, her son Evan. He's just turned 6 months, he's wearing his head-shaping helmet and his head is very round now and I swear I have never seen a baby smile so much. But he loves me, so of course he would smile... and drool a lot. All men drool around me... yep, that part WAS a lie!! LOL
So I am trying to put a positive spin on life right now, and boy am I looking forward to my March Madness!!! I even bought 2 sundresses yesterday to wear while no one is here. LOL My fat roll has GOT TO GO!!!! It messes up every cute outfit I have! And I bought a waist cincher late last night to smush it in line a little bit. LOL
And to top it all off, my escapade of shopping at Dollar General yesterday helped me lose 1.5 pounds. I weighed in at 230.6 this morning!!! YAAAAAY FREAKING YAAAAY!!! 7 more pounds to go to be back where I was, but I am celebrating every drop of fat that finds it's way out of my body.
Hmmmm.... maybe I should name every pound I lose! HAHA
Big hugs and Epic Smiles,

My, my, where have I been?
I have had facial pain since my ablation and thought it was from the air tube or anesthesiology and I even called it "stroke face" and sent pics to my family. And I thought it would wear off by the weekend. However, the pain just kept getting worse, so I finally made an appointment. Turns out that I have Bell's Palsy and Shingles. I am even too young to get the shingles shot, because I asked for it when I got the flu shot because I wanted all bases covered. So I was shocked!
Then I tell my friend that is moving to ATL about it as I am buying her couch and ceiling fan, so I told her that I was coming over tonight to pay her. She replies that I must have Herpes - but the cold sore kind - because it can be caused my inflammation of the nerve controlling the left side of your face, or a side effect of Herpes. Why jump to the Herpes conclusion? Especially knowing that I JUST HAD SURGERY A WEEK AGO. WTF? realy, WTF????
I and sorry for venting here, but I am just so disappointed in her that I want to puke. I don't want to look at her tonight when I give her the money, and I surely don't want to speak with her. I am praying for grace and calm because I have been pretty happy and have been doing well lately. But maybe it's the end of caffeine in my home - we are ALL off caffeine - that is making me so angry, or maybe it's the fact that she seems to want to project her own herpes virus onto me... thinking we all have it. Nope... my gyno told me that I was "as clean as bleach".
Okay, headache has reached the boiling point.
I have been riding my bike every day but Monday for 40 minutes and15 miles every day... trying to build my leg back up. Now I am walking in my boot - even though it's terrible and I really need a platform shoe on the other foot. The off-kilter situation is killing my left hip and right lower back.
I am still reading your messages and thank you for the prayers and good wishes. I have never not blogged in this length of time. I know I'm behind schedule, but I am trying I can promise you!
Everyone take it easy, stay warm and inside if you can, and if the sun shines be sure to sit in the window so you can get that exposure without "exposure". LOL
Big, soft hugs to you all. Oh and the German and the Mechanic are OUT. A new guy may be in, but we're only talking. I met him at a conference with my father for truck drivers. :-) Means he will be GONE most of the time and I won't have to deal with him. LOL PERFECT!!
Praying for PEACE and CALM for myself before I have to see HER at 6pm,

I washed the dogs last night. Neither were impressed with that particular Valentine's treat. Then I decided that I needed to get on the bike to burn off nervous energy. And after hopping all around the Department of Agriculture & dealing with some really funny women who seem to enjoy their jobs, my tail end and back feel like they've gone 3 rounds with a boxing KANGAROO!
So today I opted to relax a bit. Then I rode the bike for 12.5 miles & I felt great. But time for me to hit the hay. LOL
Hugs & Love,
