Yahoo!!! I lost 4 more pounds, which makes a total of 35 pounds lost.
Murphy's Law has been in effect the last few days for my husband. My husband has come down with as nasty chest cold, he is never sick and doesn't do sick well. Then on Monday we took the ATV trailer for a trial run and found problems, so he has had to take it apart and redesign it to correct the problems and found problems with the axles that he had bought for the trailer, so he had to contact the company that he bought the axles and they are sending replacements. The problem with the axle caused 80% of our problem with the trailer. So we are now waiting on the new axles. Then when I woke up yesterday I heard this water pouring, went outside and our 5th Wheel (a 37ft recreational vehicle that attaches to our truck bed) was standing in a pool of water, with water pouring out the back of it. A water line had broke next to the hot water tank in the 5th Wheel. So my husband had to fix that and now we are trying to dry out the carpet so I can finish packing the trailer this week.
I'm sorry I haven't been on the message boards, but I've been lucky to keep track of my nutrition, activities and read articles. The next three weeks are going to be even busier packing and finishing projects, because we leave on May 4th to travel north. I've printed out sheets to keep track of my information so when I have the internet setup again I can bring my nutrition and activities up to date and hopefully up on the mountain I will have a little more time to myself and can get back on the message boards. So don't expect to hear much from me before the 1st of June.
In the midst of all this our little Polly is expecting her first litter of puppies next week, so we will be traveling with puppies again this year. Hopefully they all have homes by the time we come home.
I saw the surgeon last Friday, he gave me a cortizone shot in my knee to help me through the next couple of weeks. Then if I am still having severe problems I am to call him and he will send me something. Then 6 weeks before coming home I'm to call and schedule a date for surgery for around the 3rd week of October. That gives me time to get home, put things away and get settled before the surgery. I'm hoping to be healed by Christmas, for our Christmas trip.
Well I better close for now and get to work, or I'll never get done today what I have planned...
