Going through a rocky spell.
Precious dog died Sunday. Cried until I felt sick.
I had surgery today. Hurting.
Nothing tastes right, probably because of the anesthesia.
Please, God, let tomorrow be a little better.

First up was a call for a clothes dryer repairman. The dryer was making a terrible screeching noise. It was a part with bearings that was locking up. Thank goodness it was covered by the appliance repair service fee I've added to my monthly electric bill. Score one for the homeowner this time.
Food is starting to taste more normal. I am still terribly thirsty. A bit of a sore throat, probably from whatever the anesthesiologist did to my throat during surgery.
We went to a buffet restaurant for supper. Had a buy one-get one free coupon. I was anticipating their meatloaf and baked potato. Not low carb but I am getting such needed mileage out of being pampered right now.
They didn't have meatloaf tonight. Replaced by the carving station. They also had fish, several different kinds of chicken, and a salisbury steak kind of dish. No, no, and no. I settled for a small slice of carved ham.
They have a good bean salad on the salad bar. It's not the usual 3 bean salad. This one has no green beans. It's full of small chewy beans. There are lima beans, soy beans, black eyed peas, kidney beans, and others. Interesting to the palate. Lately I've chosen a very small helping of the bean salad to follow my meal instead of dessert.
We were ready to go home when I noticed the rear passenger tire on bear's car was flat. It was so hot today. He looked miserable, working up a sweat. It's a new car to him so he wasn't aware of the locking mechanism on the hubcap.
Had a lovely talk with my little sister in another state tonight. She's healing following chemo and radiation. She's 120 pounds and so frail. Her one and only child is there for a short visit. It's good for her to get out of the house again after being so ill. Why do family always live so far away? They went out to eat twice at the same restaurant, the wait staff and chef trying to satisfy her special dietary restrictions now and explaining ingredients. She was pleased.

Feeling upbeat and positive. Surfing Spark can do that to me! Love reading the stuff you write.
Found an excellent repost of an earlier article on exercising with arthritis. It was full of links to exercise suggestions that might work for me.
