As many of you know, I had foot surgery at the end of December. I am still wearing a huge boot and using crutches. One more month for the boot and another month for the crutches but it's progress!!
Yesterday, as I was coming out of a building a work in, I was hobbling down the street and this woman who was texting bumped right into me knocking over my crutch. She was so embarrassed!! She said, "Oh, I'm so sorry" and picked up my crutch. As I was looking at her I realized it was Uma Thurman!
I said, "It's no problem." She laughed and said "I think I need to pay more attention to where I'm going. I'm glad you weren't hurt."
I said, "It's all ok but be careful, texting and walking seem to be dangerous... and umm, I'm a big fan." Awkward smile.
She was really sweet. She smiled at me, said, "Thanks" and we waved as she was on her way.
Well, that was fun!

I often have a "carb attack" when I feel I need some. I know that carbs are good for you but they need to be the right ones and not an over abundance.
For the holidays, my brother, each year, sends us a box of oranges from Florida. They are delicious.
Today, when I was on my way to the kitchen to get something sweet, I saw the oranges, grabbed one and that was my snack!! Isn't that great?
I feel like I satisfied my sweet tooth and didn't go for the sugar. Progress...progress...
Side note.....Dr. Oz mentioned that a tablespoon of peanut butter can curb cravings in 15 mins. I tried this last night and it worked. Just some peanut butter and wait the 15 mins and poof...craving gone. Try it!

Tomorrow is my foot surgery. I'm not really nervous, I just want it over with. Once again my friend Dawn is coming to the rescue to take me to the surgical center and then home again.
I am so annoyed with the center. They called me at 8:30 this morning and went over everything I needed to know for tomorrow. They told me to be there at 10:15. I called Dawn and set the entire thing up.
At about noon they called to remind me to be there at 10:15 and that I had a co-pay and not to forget to bring it.
Around 1, they called me, laughing and said, "Oh, forget about 10:15 we just changed the surgery to 7:30 am. I was furious. I spent time figuring out the day, asking favors of friends and they just think it's funny?
I just wish people would walk a mile in my shoes before they think things are easy for everyone.
Well, wish me luck. Tomorrow I get my foot fixed! Hooray!
