Always changing

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Job situation prospects have gotten a lot more interesting this week. I don't wanna go into detail unless something actually happens. I hate getting my hopes up or down for that kind of thing. My MIL is talking about giving my husband her little truck. Which would be nice because he never seems to know when he has to travel 90 minutes or 3 hours for his job. He found out yesterday 15 minutes before leaving for work he was heading to Springfield and his boss had already left and didn't offer to carpool...ughhh... We need something else, besides my CRV with 170k miles and his 94 huge chevy. New cars have and probably never will be something important to us. Just something safe to get us from point A to point B. Student loans are expensive enough to worry about at the moment.

I have been doing really well on my calories! Hovering at 1600 calories pretty steadily! Which is no easy task but once you start it's easier. Just gotta make a pattern. My mom was telling me about how her and my dad are always on the go and never eat healthfully. So I had them over for Dinner on Sunday. Kinda went all out and made Two count em TWO recipes from one of the Moosehead cookbooks. Most recipes in that book take 1 hour of prep. I made this eggplant casserole and this Celery root and apple slaw. I think I kinda shocked my dads system lol He told me he had never eaten that healthy in his life. Plus I got a loaf of Ciabatta from work OMG that stuff is dangerous when I buy it for me and Scott. But it worked out well with 4 ppl lol I am not sure if I wrote about this before. But my dads doctor told him he needs knee replacement on both knees, it's just bone on bone grinding. He wont do it, he doesn't wanna be out of work 6 months and lose his business. So he just walks around in pain all the time. I asked what he was gonna do and he said "get a wheelchair" ughhhh!!!!! Yes because vets work and run their own business in a wheelchair super well! With this and dialysis I donno what kind of quality he is stacking up. My mom being thoroughly into the metaphysical world, she thinks he should seek healers and be mentally open to healing. How can a healer help bone on bone rubbing of knees??? But she also doesn't think he should be out of work 6 months. They are quite a pair. I guess it's their lives and their pain, their choice. Oh yes and my dad still tells me running is bad on your knees.....ooh ya cuz that's why his knees are shot. Not endless amount of surgery and carrying too big of dogs and working on his feet for the past 36 hrs. It's all the running he never did.

Speaking of which I should run today at work! That sounds really nice and I see the sun outside! Have a good one u guys. Sorry to whine about my dads knees so much.

    I love good used cars. In my entire life I have only bought a couple of new cars. The rest were all good used cars and I liked most of the used cars better than one of the new cars. You take a hit on a new car as they depreciate so much when you drive them off the parking lot.

    I think your dad should check out alternative medicine. As a nurse I have seen it help tons of people. I have been getting into it and it works.

    Oh, yikes about your dad. Also keep in mind what a wheelchair will do to his heart health. Dan's mom did the same thing...she chose a wheelchair over back surgery. And yeah, she is no longer with us. I hope you can talk him out of that.

    I got 2 miles yesterday and it wasn't bad, about 37 degrees! The streets are drier than last week too! :)
