A MATH TALE AND OTHER ITEMS
Saturday, September 08, 2012
Here is another "story" if you will about Dad and me. Math has never been my strong subject and I particularly had difficulty with those "thought" or "story" problems. Remember those? The ones with the apples, oranges, bushels, take away so many or divide so many and come up with an answer? Well, one night after working so patiently with me Dad asked me to close my eyes and try and visualize what the problem was talking about. So, I closed my eyes and thought. And thought. And thought. Finally Dad asked me to tell him what I saw. My answer? "DARK ! ! " Well, at that point Dad just laughed, closed the book and said we were done for the night. I then went to bed as it was past my bed time. I don't know how many times that was brought up in the years since then. We always got a good laugh out of that one. Dad truly had the patience of Job with me.
What is strange is that I am very good at music, which is math, but in some kinds of math I just don't get it. But at least I do get it when it counts for me. Guess who is in charge of the bills in our marriage? Yep, me. I am very good at organizing and filing things so I guess that's why Arjay asked me to take care of that part of our marriage partnership. But we also have a computer program that subtracts and adds for me as I enter each item so that makes it better for me.
I have been so sleepy today and even went and took a 2 hr. nap this afternoon. It's because I had a medical procedure done yesterday that required me to be put to sleep. Guess what they used? Propofol in my IV. Yep, the same thing Michael Jackson's Dr. gave him, but the difference was that I was monitored very closely and was on oxygen and wasn't given too much of it. My nurse didn't leave the room either. But that is powerful stuff. The sleepiness can last 24 to 36 hours. Needless to say I didn't drive yesterday or today but I should be fine by tomorrow morning to drive to church. I also have to go to the store and then sweep/mop our LR, Kitchen and Bathroom floors in the afternoon as I am having company Monday afternoon and didn't get it done today. I also want to throw the throw rugs in the wash at the same time. It shouldn't take more than an hour and I'll have the football game on as I'm getting those things done. I'll be asking hubby to clean the ceiling fans in the LR for me.
I have to be on a high fiber diet. Thought I was getting enough fiber in my diet but apparently I'm not. Does anyone know what the suggested daily amount of fiber intake is per day? I also have to take a fiber supplement. So it's off to the store after church to load up on more fruits and veggies. I also read where almonds have a good source of fiber in them. Any other suggestions? I will also get some raisins. Anyone know what kind of lunch meat is good for increasing fiber? I want to start eating a sandwich for lunch rather than a slim fast daily. I'll find another way for my chocolate fix.
That's about it for now. Have a good rest of the weekend everyone.
