I got dressed this morning figuring that I would be playing mahj at 12:30 p.m. At about 10:00 a.m. I ate breakfast which was a mango and banana. I think I ate them too fast and did not chew them. That is my problem, all those years of 1/2 hour lunches and scarfing down lunch, I still can't after all these years slow down my eating. So anyway at about 10:30 I was really feeling crappy. My stomach was whirling and I really felt I needed to throw up. I didn't be I did cancel Mahj and slept most of the day. Cancelled the rest of my day and evening plans.
Did watch The Bachelor and Brad asked Emily to marry him, and they are running into all kinds of roadblocks. I knew it. I told him that (to my TV of course) She is not going to move to Austin, she has a fantastic support group in Virginia and they won't let her go. etc etc The longer she stays in Virginia the less apt they will marry. Chantel was a better choice for him. Men and blonds the need to protect the pretty little thing. I just can't understand.
Anyway, going to finish my book and then go to bed.
I didn't blog yesterday because I really didn't have anything interesting to report. I went to synagogue for Saturday sabbath services, went over to my friend who had trouble with her facebook page and came home to make tuna fish salad for dinner
Today I did a tour for my synagogues religious school kids. There were 21 children and the K-3 rd grade did a weaving project based on the Chagall tapestry that sits in our atrium at the Jewish Museum.
I had the 4-9 graders and we toured the museum and ended with the Chagall exhibit which is being featured through June 6, 2011. It was a great tour and the kids really were great listeners and added to the tour by throwing out questions, some of which I could not answer but the Rabbi (teacher) had the answers. Thank goodness he was there with his wife.
I then went to meet my friend Diana and we went to the Frank Lloyd Wright exhibit at the Milwaukee Art Museum. I was her guest and I paid for the audio and parking since she drove. She went to Starbucks while I gave the tour. It was a wonderful exhibit of many of his buildings, homes and cities. He definitely was a man ahead of his time. Diana and I are going to plan a tour of Wisconsin looking for his homes, many of which are historical sites and open to the public.
We then parked at Whole Foods and shopped for lunch to take into the 1:30 p.m. movie "Butiful" with Javior Beham (sp?) It was filmed in Barcelona and a very moving film. It was not a pleasant feel good movie. It showed the exploitation of the immigrant Chinese people and African immigrants. I bought an apple, a sandwich on whole wheat roll and a 6oz bottle of orange juice.
I came home at 4:30 p.m. and quickly put dinner in the oven. We are having blintz souffle. I am going to watch TV the rest of the evening with my honey.
This morning we handled an emotional crisis productively. I was very upset and hurt about an event that will not happen. I found out about it last night and fretted about it all evening/through the night and into this morning. I wrote an email to the person explaining my hurt but before I sent it I called my sister in NC to discuss the emotional letter. She and I talked for over an hour, I edited the letter and finally made peace with the solution. I did e-mail the letter and cc another close relative. I got a call from that person and we discussed my emotional reaction and assured me that the solution was perfect. The important thing is that I didn't eat over it.
I got dressed and went to play Mahj, although it was a great game and I got decent hands I couldn't complete them and lost $2.30.
I stopped at Sendiks and picked up dinner for tonite and lots of fruit which was on sale. Blueberries, strawberries and mangos.
Yesterday I went into Chicago to stay overnight at our son's place so I was available to take him to his last lipotrypsy on Thursday Morning. I picked up my granddaughter Hannah because Jeff was feeling lousy again. He was in a lot of pain. After Hannah practiced her piano we went to Yen Yen for chinese. It was wonderful. The leftovers were left for Jeff's dinner Thursday night.
Today I woke up at 5 am so we could get to Hinsdale where the clinic is located. They already know us by name and I know where the bathrooms and coffee is located. To make a long story short, everything came out great. The doc said he got all the stones out and he is finished with those procedures. Now they have to determine what causes the kidney stones and how to prevent them from reoccurring.
We went out for lunch to a Middle eastern restaurant and I had the chopped chicken salad which was absolutely fantastic.
I headed for home knowing that Jeff was fine. When I got home my DH was very happy to see me. I made cheese omelets for dinner and they were wonderful
Now I am catching up on "Pawn Stars", a series on LifeTime network. I will be off to bed shortly since I wasn't able to nap.
I went to a lecture that I signed up for in an education series. The speak was Dr. Thorton, who is the Superintendent of The Milwaukee Public Schools. He was dynamic and very interesting. He spook mostly about what his goals are and the conflict he has with Governor Walkers Repair bill which will cut his budget by 74 million dollars. He was a lively session in deed, since most of the audience was comprised up retired school teachers.
I then went to have lunch and play scrabble which took me into 4:00 p.m.
I came home made dinner and went to play mahj jong at my friends condo across the hall. I lost $5.00. It was a terrific game and it was worth the loss.
Tomorrow I am going back to Chicago to take my son back for a lithrotypsy on his right kidney. He is not feeling good and is on vicadin and I will pick up my granddaughter and bring her over to her dad's place and probably go out for dinner with her. Thursday is the lithrotypsy and hopefully this will be the end of this mess. But the good thing is I get to spend time with my son and granddaughter.
