Judy, It's good you came to an agreement with your roommate.
Ann, Wow! I didn't expect to see you on here so soon. Sounds like things are going well. Yes, it's hard to read in bed. It will be interesting to see what your weight is.
We had a reprieve from the rain today. The sun came out and it was a beautiful day. DH and I walked on the river walk this afternoon and went on an improved and newer area.
DS made us a lean version of turkey/black bean/lentil chili for dinner and it's very good.
Glenna talked to Sarah, who sounded good but they took her off antibiotics because of all the side effects and she was having problems again so will have to take more antibiotics. This is such a long siege for Sarah. Maybe we should all (who want to) send her a snail mail or card. Glenna's husband had a follow-up appointment today and they were recommending surgery to repair his shoulder so he will have to decide whether or not to do the surgery.
I am home. Now I have to catch up on every ones posts. Can't miss anything. My eyes are really bugging me. I have lots of books to read but it won't be much fun with a magnify glass. One thing I learned I can not read while in bed.
I feel fine. No pain and haven't had any pain pills for 4 or so days. 1/2 my staples were taken out today and the rest will come out Mon. at the dr. office. I'm on a soft diet and boy my pumpkin bread I made before we went to the hosp. sure tastes good. I'm anxious tonight when I get my jammies on to weigh myself. I had such good care at the hospital the nurses and the aides were just super. DH stayed with me the whole time except to come home for an hour or so to take a shower. I will get one tomorrow. Yeah.
Where is everybody? I can't believe that at 3:30pm Pacific time, I am the first to post today?
Well here is an update on my home status. I talked with Carol and worked out some financial arrangements based on what I can pay. We had a fairly long discussion but it was amiable. That was good for a change. I have assured her that I will do what I can toward making contributions to the house.
That being settled for now. I received my EBT card from my son, he had been carrying it when we went grocery shopping and just forgot to give it to me before he left. I wasn't concerned about that because I wanted to build up a stock for a while so that I could do more reasonable shopping They contribute so little to my food budget unless I stockpile them. Right now I have a nice stockpile and can really accomplish something with it. I am excited that I will be able to shop more effectively this month.
I have some of last night's stir-fry left for tonight so I am going to have a really good dinner tonight. I'll have to watch those calories though. I have used up 2/5 of my daily allotment already so extreme care is necessary. I am really trying to Take Off Pounds Sensibly. TOPS meeting next Wednesday morning. I am looking forward to that. Maybe I will be able to get out by then.
See you later, I've got some more things to get done this afternoon.
