1. I made it to church. I wrestled with getting dressed this morning. I tried to get my pantyhose on this morning (yes, I'm an old fogie who still wears it - partly because my legs look pretty bad due to edema and other issues) but I could not put them on. My daughter tried to help me but by the time we got them on, I realized that there was a humongous hole in them! So I ended up going bare legged but I absolutely cannot wear my leather church shoes without anything on my feet. I tried some footie things but they kept popping off my feet repeatedly so that wasn't going to work. So I ended up wearing black ankle socks, my leather shoes, my pasty white legs and then a white/teal dress. I'm sure it would have set off Tacky Meters but oh well, I tried and this is what worked. That, and by that time I had to get out the door or we'd be late for church.
2. Church was good. I taught the teens during Junior church and we had a nice discussion. We studied about Nicodemus today.
3. I took lunch stuff with us but it was a pretty eclectic selection. We ended up just stopping at Burger King. I got a chicken wrap but it was still too many carbs and made my sugar go up too high. I didn't get a salad because raw veggies make me have digestive issues and it isn't fun.
4. I was feeling fairly good after church so I almost decided to go with the family to a baptism they were going to. I'm glad that at the last minute I decided that it would be too much. My energy crashed in the afternoon and I slept for two and a half hours. Now I'm exhausted and can barely keep my head up. I'm glad that I'm going to the doctor tomorrow. This is one of the issues we will discuss, though the cynic in me (born from having chronic illness for over twenty years) wonders if it's worth mentioning since they don't seem to be able to really do anything about it.
