Hi all! Another cold, windy day, working out at home. I am hoping my elliptical holds up. Waiting for a call back from a repair person for it. I could not get into to see the surgeon who did my left hip until January 8th. Long wait there. I hope all these painkillers last that long. My scooter will be picked up tomorrow and if he has the right parts in stock for it, will bring it back the next day! There is some question because its eight years old and things may have changed since then. Not that it matters as the weather will be too nasty to use it for the next while anyway.
Mom suggested I lay off the raw veggies for a while. So I cooked everything yesterday and today. Still runs, but not so much gas and not more than once a day.
I have a dilemma. I bought egg whites on sale and unfortunately have three unopened cartons left that are now past their best before date. I researched the differences on use before, packaged on etc., etc. and the consensus was I could still use them, but taste, texture and looks might not be the best. If it had said use by, I would have had to toss them because that would be a safety issue.
Has anyone had any experience with this? I so hate to waste things, but I don't need any more excuses for my tummy to get worse either.
I had another lousy game in bridge today, the worst being two absolute bottom hands against my nemesis, one because I was too asleep and missed my partner's opening bid :(
We were dead last. So very frustrating.
Another home workout tomorrow and hopefully, a bright spot that I may go with Mom to the Festival of Trees at our local museum. Keeping fingers crossed. She won't drive anywhere if the weather is bad.
Thanks for all the support,
