Just Another Evening, Another Errand, Another Day Closer to Vacation



What a cute work of art here.  Love this.  Don't have much time.  I hit snooze way too many times.  lol George and I stayed up too late apparently.  I didn't really notice the time.  But I sent a business text at 10 p.m. last night in response to someone.

When we got home, we had to go get George's car - the Rav4 - from the shop.  He paid for it on the way in yesterday.  Since I was out part of Friday for the doc appt, then I didn't want to be late to work for taking him to get the car.  So he paid for it in the morning and we went and picked it up after work.

Then we came home and I did laundry (towels) and he fixed us a dinner of pasta and sauce - that we bought from the Christmas Village.  It was really good.

We talked to Katy for about an hour.  And then we watched the rest of our Netflix video.
Then took dogs out and went to bed.  Not an exciting life, but that was yesterday.  lol

I did find out that our 1/4 of a cow has been slaughtered and is hanging.  That sounds horrible.  When you realize that part of it - it makes you appreciate the life of whatever it is that gave up their life for you to be sustained in life.  We are scheduled to go pick it up the same day the fridge is being delivered.  So it may be that George will go get the cow and I'll be staying home for the fridge delivery.  If the fridge comes early - I will get to go.  Rarely does anything work out though when you want it to so I'm not planning on going.  If I get to then I'll be surprised.  You know I'm a home body though, so staying home is probably best for me given the upcoming holiday decorating and gift wrapping that needs to happen along with the housework, laundry, ordering, and continued shopping, and so forth.

So, off to get ready and get to work.  Trying to work extra this week if I can - getting there early, eating lunch at my desk, and so forth.  Staying later past 5 is harder this week as we have errands to run and places to be.

Yesterday I had meatloaf from Cracker Barrel with mashed potatoes and green beans and carrots.  I did not eat all the carrots.  Three sides is too much.  lol  I also had a few bites of the corn muffin.  Comfort food.

So, everything is coming together so far for the trip.  And I'm going back for some more coffee!  Gonna be a big bad busy day of running around and not much accomplished at the desk.  Since I'll be doing harassment avoidance training at the plant and doing a post office run to mail off the Holiday cards.  All that puts a dent in the day.

Oh and one more thing!  The flu shot contains the following so when my doc said "are you sure you have not been taking antibiotics?" - I actually did have the flu shot and the problems began occurring after that - a week to two weeks later it began:

The following list looks at seven ingredients in vaccines, including flu shots, and why vaccines need them:
  • Influenza viruses. The flu vaccine contains tiny amounts of the viruses it protects against. ...
  • Formaldehyde. ...
  • Aluminum Salts. ...
  • Thimerosal. ...
  • Chicken egg proteins. ...
  • Gelatin. ...
  • Antibiotics.


Ya'll have a great Tuesday!

Shopping, Eating, Walking, Packing and Praying for Normal


Well as you can see I tried to eat as bland as I could.  lol  Eggs and bacon and grits.  And a biscuit with strawberry preserves.  We ate at Biscuit Love.  It's in the Gulch in Nashville.  


Above is George's Hot Chicken buscuit.  

Then we headed to the fairgrounds for Christmas Village.  It was wonderful! 



We stood in line about 30 minutes before the opened.  The wind was very cold.


There was so much stuff and so many people that I did not take many pics.  

These were so cute. 


And we ran into a friend!  My friend Dawn from Gallatin.  We went to church together, had some classes together, small group time together, planned together, and supported one another.  She has such a big sweet heart.  



Mr. and Mrs. Claus where shopping yesterday!  


My man took me to get a burger.   We went to Jack Brown's and it was soooo good.  I know I know, it's not exactly bland enough.  But it did have bread.


I love the vibe and fun in here.  It always feels like spring.  And is always happy and crazily decorated.



I was happy to see Katy and Cody were also out having a good time.  They went to see the Pred's in Dallas.  



I was so exhausted by the time we got home.  We also hit a couple of other places and had a beer.  Yeah I know.  Not on the BRAT diet. Most of the issues are back and forth.  And instead of keeping on a BRAT diet, I sortof just included the BRAT diet into my diet.  lol  The probiotics seem to help more than anything.  I'm not sure I'll be able to get the test done either b/c it can only be done when things are going awry.  So we'll see.   I am sorry but I don't have a lot of trust in the doctor's.  I am breaking out into a cold sweat, quite often though and I don't understand that.  It often did that when cleansing - so I think it's my liver trying to detox whatever is going on.  This has all been very depressing to me.  I am up and down.  Am I going to live or die?  

And b/c I ate so much in the last two days-- eating so much crap that I'm not supposed to eat - like BREAD and carbs and potatoes and white foods - I was completely nauseated when we got home.  And had to take an indigestion tablet.  I've not had to do that since I've been on my system.   I was also worn out and frozen to the bone and could not get warm.  I went to bed at 7 and got up at 5 this morning.  Last night I thought I was dying.  I felt limp and lifeless but this morning upon waking I felt much better.  

We didn't go to church this morning b/c we had so much to do here to get ready for our trip.  
I've done laundry as usual and ironing, and packed up my Isagenix goods for the week and for the trip.  I went in and checked my autoships - both mine and George's to make sure it's set for what I need when I get back.  And won't ship until we get back. 

I did the Target order and ordered the usual treats and also ordered Science Diet again thru Alexa so that we have plenty, with Tugie going to Mom's and the other two going with us. 

I have packed up my suit case for Texas except for some black pants that need to dry and be ironed.  Jewelry and shoes are all fixed.  Even my outfit to wear Saturday is set to go!  I've not prepped my work clothes this week.  Just now thought of it really, lol.  I guess I need to go think about that some to save time in the mornings.

I've swapped purses. 

George and I went through all of our purchases and logged them on the Christmas list and figured out what was left to buy.  We have made some huge progress.  

George brought up the Christmas stuff.  I have not been in the mood to put it up yet but just feel good knowing that it is upstairs already and ready to go.  We'll work on it when we get back.  

We have talked to the house sitter that will be staying here and all is well. 

I even played my Tropical Paradise game just for fun to sit still for a minute this morning with some coffee.  

 And I went for a walk around the block and then some for a quick 1 mile and a quarter walk and some 2700 steps.  It felt great.  I cannot cleanse yet, for a while, until my tummy gets back to the appropriate balance. So getting some exercise will hopefully help keep the lbs away while I'm expected to eat these things I don't normally eat that bloats and clogs you.  I think I like the other way better.  lol 

Anyway it did me wonders to get out.  I proved to myself I'm not dying.  Not yet anyway. 
I can still walk.  I even considered running.  I decided that after the new year, I may try working up to a run just to see if I can.  But I kept it at a walk today.  After the new year, I'll have my Apple Watch and can study the heart rate thing.

Since I was on my feet most of yesterday and also today, my back is hurting me pretty good. 

Anyway, things are coming together for the trip.

Someone tried to break into one of my signon's yesterday under BackPorchGal.  I don't use that sign on much.  But I got a notice that someone tried to log in as me. :-O  It wasn't me.  I'd even forgotten about that one.

Here are the pics from today:



Very peaceful.  Me and my ipod and also took them off at times just to hear the nature. 

I had a sweet moment when I looked down at my phone and a friend had texted to say "hi" and ask about me.  And all the while a song was playing with lyrics that said "we all just need to be loved".  It makes all the fear and sadness and worries go away when people are nice, to the point of caring about you.  My heart is saddened by the ones who don't - that would rather harm your spirit and psyche for whatever reason.  Makes me so glad to have true friends that care about my life. And show it.  So much of that is missing from life. 


Yes, enjoyed the walk.  Enjoyed the day. 

Just wanting life to be normal.  I want to go back to my system b/c I start to feel bad when I'm not.  The white foods and bread is just not nutritious.  So I'm trying not to go back to the dairy just yet.  But I may soon.  Maybe in the morning or maybe Tuesday morning.  Or until I get this test done.  But if it is normal I can't do the test.  lol  Anyway I'm confused and trying to give it to God.  The doctor's don't have an immediate answer either.  He was really thinking I'd been on antibiotics.  But I've not been.  Others say it's stress.  I've not really been THAT stressed.  I mean yeah, there have been some gnarly people I've had to deal with lately but I can brush that off easily now like I've not been able to before.  Yeah there is a lot of responsibility and a lot I'm trying to do.  But it's all a good stress.  I don't know.  Maybe the vacation will help.  If it does then we'll know the culprit. 

I just want happy times and feeling good and going on about my plan and hopes and dreams.  And being able to do what I want to do.  I'm so excited about the future but all this is messing with it and with me.  So I have to figure out what is going on so I can know what adjustments to make and how to get it done from here, where I sit.  

Like now!  Probably no post in the morning.  Since I've posted today.

Stop! Don't Eat White Foods! OK! Go Eat White Foods!


I failed to mention that Thursday night after work was shopping night.   It grew and grew what I needed to do.  Originally needed to stop at Belk for eye liner, added to that some khaki pants for winter.  Wanted to get a different color lipstick since my hair is lighter now.  And then I needed to go to Penny's.  And then George asked if I would go get Tugie's meds, in another city altogether but only 20 minutes opposite of the shopping.  How could I say no? 

So I found not only the much needed khaki pants, but another pair of blue pants that fit me better and also a pair of brown pants which I never thought I'd be able to wear.  Maybe I haven't shopped before for myself for pants before Thanksgiving.  So my size was in everything.  Must have been a newly arrived shipment.  The sales were everywhere.  Even $1.99 rack for tops, $4.99 racks.  Still, I could not be enticed for the sale racks.  No time and I'm in the mood to move on, my summer wardrobe already doing fine.  But it was awesome to be able to get 3 pair of pants that fit for winter. 

So, I did go to the doctor.  And the irony is just astounding.  On my last visit he says, "continue on with your low fat diet, good job, stay off of the white foods (pre-diabetic reasons)". 

Yesterday.  "Go eat some bananas, applesauce, rice, and toast and probiotics and cut out dairy"!   

Does this not happen all the time?  Last time it went in the other direction.  The pendulum swings. 
Eat this.  Now don't eat it.  Don't eat that.  Now eat that.  

It makes ones head swim.  So I've tried so hard to lose weight and cut out all those things. So after the doc I went to the store and bought bread, crackers, beanie weenies (b/c I wanted them), dark chocolate with almonds, instant rice cups.  In my rebellious attitude I came home, had a glass of wine, ate the beenie weenies which were a disappointment, went over ate some BBQ kettle chips, opened a bag of baked crackers and ate a bunch of those, ate potatoes for dinner and had 2nd's.  Ate some of the Hershey's dark chocolate with almonds bar and decaf coffee.  

This morning.  I'm all normal!  My body hurts, but all functions are normal.  

And I can't wait to go back to my shakes.  Which I will do by Monday morning!  

So I think this is a gut thing and it does not want me to eat healthy.  So how do I retrain it?  I've done well for so long.  I keep reverting back to the flu shot and how after that is when things began to go awry - after about a week to two weeks after the shot.  Is that possible?  My glands began to be sore one morning.  That went away but then the gut trouble started.  I've had a pain or two in my glands off and on - nothing constant and nothing worth even mentioning.  So my system is acting as if it is fighting something.  The good news is that my white count was good.  But the doc said he thought it was a bug and gave me a "poop kit", lol.  Well I'll have to wait to see if there are any other abnormals before I can do that.  

Life is just so intriguing.  Don't eat those white foods!  Now go eat those white foods!  Drives me crazy!  I'm on a mission - don't they know that?  The devil is messing with me I think.  But God wins.  The good news is, I was not sent for further testing and so it's probably just a virus bug or food intolerance or a system imbalance.  So I guess we see what happens. 

Gotta go - we are having a fun day today.  And leaving soon.  I will have a lot to share tomorrow. 
On to more coffee and to get ready!

Discouraged and Calling the Doc


It was such a pretty day yesterday leaving the house.  I got out of the car and captured a few more photos.  

This photo actually popped up in my memories!  I used to love this tree face.  It is gone now.  I bought George another one a few years ago but he has not put it up.  :-(  I guess he didn't like it as well as I did.  



 The clouds added to the pretty morning.  I thanked the Lord for such beauty. 


And there I was last week thinking everything was just turning brown and I was wishing to be in Vermont! lol.  But we have our very own Vermont happening!   At this point it will not last long.  It's raining out there now and I suspect we'll have bare trees soon.  I also love the smell of wet leaves in the fall.  

Well, I'm sad to say that the issues are back.  I had laid off the probiotics the last two days since it was better.  It doesn't seem to matter what I eat - I've eaten different things and it just does it when it wants to.  All I know is that the pro biotics help and I thought the cleanse made it worse, but it is happening w/o me cleansing.  So now I'm not sure. 

But YES, I'm going to the doctor today.  I will go to work and make an appointment.  There is no guarantee I'll get in today. So I don't want to wait here this morning and call.  I'll go in and get done what I can and take whatever appointment I can get.  If I need to go next week I may have to move some things around on the calendar.  Because the week is really stacking up.  

I have an orientation this morning at 8 as well and I'll get that done. If the appt is mid day I'll just take laptop and work home for the rest of the day b/c I'm not driving in to work back to the doc in MJ and then back into Nashville again.  So we'll see what happens.  

I feel great.  So something is just not right.  An imbalance?  Or do I have cancer?  No other symptoms of the cancer thing.  But it's not comfortable reading about.  

I got in my salted caramel shake.  I haven't had one yet. Also got in my Jingle Essential Oils.  
Just not sure what is going on but it's time to go see.  

I was getting better and so I was so upset yesterday.  I give up.  I can't control this.  God whispers "I have a reason. Trust me."

So I will.  I told George that I wanted to be excited about life and things we are planning but I'm afraid to be happy in case something is wrong.  There may not be anything to be excited about any more.  

Only God knows.  I hope it's all going to be ok.  If not good news, at least I won't be frustrated with this world anymore.  

So prayers please.  I'd love for this to be ok and to get to see my grandchildren one day.  I really do want to enjoy life. Right now it's getting hard to do with this slapping you in the face every day.

Merry Fitmas and a Happy New Rear, Busy Times


I snapped this on my phone yesterday scrolling through.  Made me laugh!  
If any one would like a Happy New Rear for 2019 I can hook you up.  Sorry that sounds bad.  But very fitting! ha. 

I began the day at Walmart buying employee gift cards.  Tis the season.  Turns out (as I suspected) the number of cards is "per transaction" - the customer service lady just didn't want to deal with me that day.  It is kind of funny.  I have done this so long now that I have to tell them what to do.  The lady checking me out yesterday got stuck on the PO number when I entered my credit card.  I told her she either had to enter a date for the PO or just hit clear.  (lol)  She went to ask her manager and I don't blame her - she doesn't know that I knew what I was talking about and the manager said "just hit clear"...................lol 


On the way to work I listened to "Kind is the New Classy" by Candace Bure.  I'm enjoying the Audible gift I gave myself!  I actually enjoy my commutes listening to my favorite books on audible and pod casts also on my podcast app.  I start the week out with Believe book (spiritual book that takes you through the Bible in a very different way showing you the nature of God, how he loves us, and why we should "believe" as he has a plan for our lives and a plan to save us).  And then as he week progresses, I dive into Candace's book, into Isagenix podcasts, and into The Boat Galley podcasts - especially if I'm feeling stressed.  If I'm feeling like I need some guidance in coaching me on boundaries - I go to either Dr. Henry Cloud's book or my favorite, Amy Smith's podcast, "The Joy Junkie".  

I really like Candace Bure's book and I think there are some others in the world that could stand to listen to it! She talks about how to handle those that attack us for no reason other than selfish reasons.  And how God says it is ok to be angry but it's how you react.  I'm not perfect at it yet - in trying to be the nicest I can be in my reactions to what I see as others idiocracies.  But I am certainly better - and my stress formula of Ionix works like a charm too.  

So I try to find a method to react that not only establish my boundaries but is kind.  It is a fine art.  It's very difficult when you are under attack for no apparent reason other than someone's selflish thoughts/desires.  It's hard to put yourself on the flip side of the coin at times and be empathetic with selfish. lol  But I'm going to practice her methods on people and see if it works. It's really God's method of doing things.  Getting attacked by another verbally is certainly no fun and she did a good job of covering this on the commute to work yesterday. 

Work is still crazy busy.  Or should I say crazy and busy. lol  I wonder if I will ever get caught up.  In the middle of trying to get out massive 401k information distribution, hiring and pending hires, planning supervisor training, processing FMLA's, workers comp updates, planning holiday meals and holiday cards, new comp plan for drivers effective this week,  and haven't even started on the next month's benefits enrollments for the new hires, which usually are well underway by now to enter into each website of their enrollments since we don't have carrier connect.  That is only the tip of the iceburg - as there are always so many questions, emails, calls and so forth.  I do what I can and prioritize. My head is spinning and I'm delegating what I can.  Anyway, it sits and rolls over to the next day and some things just will not get done at all.  

I went to get my nails done after work yesterday.  I was bad and did a drive thru b/c I needed something hot to eat - not a bar -not a shake.  I got a fish sandwich and fries dipped in ketchup.  This is bad b/c I'm not cleansing.  But it was good and I enjoyed it since I don't normally eat that way.  I even got a coke.  First one in a very long time.  Maybe since spring.  

Once home I did laundry and folded the towels and started another load.  And watched Keep Your Daydream, We are the Russo's, and MJ Sailing on YouTube.  In the middle I fixed raman noodles with a bit of olive oil and parmesan cheese and also a bit of the seasoning (chili seasoning).  But I don't use much of their seasoning.  I usually don't eat those kind of noodles but I was craving something by then and it was good.  

I will probably have cereal this morning for something different.  I'm trying to dive back into my shakes at a slow pace since this tummy virus thing.   I am going to Publix to get ice cream and cake for this afternoon for NOV birthdays at work.  While there I will get me a salad for lunch and some individual milk cartons - the kind that doesn't spoil.  I will have that with cereal at my desk while organizing my day today.  I am hoping for a productive and non-eventful day.  And likely will eat lunch at my desk today.  

After work today I have to go get Pet Meds for Tugie in one direction and then go to JC Penny's and also to Belks.  So I told George I would just grab something to eat again.  Maybe we will return to normal one day.  lol  

Well, I better get ready and get out the door!  Ya'll have a great day!

All Things Better, Busy Times, and Bohemian Rhapsody Movie

Well, hello everyone.  I did not get to post yesterday.  One of my customers turned their associate button on to share with others and I spent some time on IM and Marco Polo explaining some things before going to work. 

My issues are the best they have been in 3 weeks now, so I've not gone to the doc yet. Back to normal! It's weird to go to the doc and say "I'm better now so I'm here".  So I'm not going yet.  But reserve the right to change my mind at any moment should anything turn south. The only other thing that I've noticed is that I feel like I'm sweating out something.  You know when you sweat out a virus?  Usually though you have had a fever.  I don't have a fever.  And haven't had one.  So can you sweat out a virus w/o having a fever?  It could be metabolism.

The To Do at work this time of year is astounding.  Way too much going on.  It comes in faster than we can get it out.  No different at home.  The To Do list is still long. 

We had severe storms come through supposedly the other night.  I thought I had my alerts on my phone set, but the "do not disturb" was on.  I really didn't see any warnings from our area that I missed.  And in that back bedroom I don't hear the wind and storms like we did in the front bedroom.  Plus we have thunderstorms and rain playing anyway on the noise maker lol.  I was shocked to wake up at the alarm instead of storms overnight.  Such a change.  Normally I would have waited to go to bed and stayed up for midnight storms.  I'd have not been able to sleep. 

Well I ordered this shake yesterday.  Looking forward to it.  I may have a shake this morning.  I miss them.  Have been trying to lay off cleansing and liquid meals for a while but I'm about ready to dive back into the shakes.  Especially when this arrives.  I also ordered our newest Essential oil. 



I have the rest of the Essential oils so might as well have this.  I bought both with money I made from the business!  I am thinking that I will cycle again this week!  When I made this purchase it placed BV points toward whatever leg I was needing BV on and I think I get paid again next Monday.  Unbelievable what I could do in this if I really had the time to do more - more quickly. 


So George and I went to see Bohemian Rhapsody at the movies - the movie about Queen.  It was a really good movie.  I loved it.  We are watching the same actor, Rami Malek in another series called Mr. Robot.  It's kinda funny that we found this actor in two movies (well one is a series) all in the same week.  He's really good.  REALLY good in his characters. 

And I need to get to Walmart this morning and order 100 more gift cards.  They are making me do this 100 at a time.  So tomorrow back for the other 89.  Then on to work.

I am getting nails done after work today.  They need it bad.  I was going to do it Monday but the skies looked threatening and I didn't want to be out.  Turned out it was just wind and clouds and a smaller line ahead of the real thing - so I'd have been ok.  But I'm going today. 

Anyway, ya'll have a wonderful day and praise the Lord I'm better and I thank you for the prayers.  Just pray that it sustains and keeps going well.

I did hear the Lord whisper in my ear this morning, "I have plans to heal you and not hurt you".

Productive Fall Day, Shopping, and Knocking off the To Do List


The day started out so gorgeous.  And knowing a storm front would be coming in and most likely the leaves all gone soon, I decided if I was getting pics, I needed to do it yesterday.  So I took a few as I do every year.  I'm happy to say that some of the colors finally popped. A lot of them were just dead brown.  I love the red ones and the yellow and the orange!





Some are still green and some are gone completely.  Just an odd mix.


Our house looking through the trees. 



Yesterday I did a devo and then began doing a bit of laundry.  I ordered our buy one get one free "Two for Tuesday" movie tickets to go see Bohemian Rhapsody about the Queen band.  That was an ordeal.  They make you go to the AT&T benefits app to do it and it got all weirded out on me as it involves both AT&T and Fandango and some other website.  It wasn't giving me the discount.  It finally connected properly and I got it to work.  

I ordered my Christmas orders from LTD Commodities and also from another magazine I got where I saw a cute item for someone.  And also from Belk.  I don't know that I had this on the list, but I ordered Tugie some doggie tee shirts from Amazon b/c she shivers so badly.  I will let her wear one for 2 to 3 days and change it.  Right now I only have one tee shirt and then a corduroy material one that is a bit heavy but honestly she is wearing it now and seems to enjoy it.  Cotton is certainly breathable and so I've ordered two more for her.  I hope they fit. 

I also looked up a few places in Hot Springs and we had already done that once, but I looked up a few places to shop and also checked out a hiking spot.  Don't think we'll have a whole lot of time but we are thinking we will leave early so we'll have time to stop a couple of places on the way and then if we get to Hot Springs early enough we can eat lunch there and explore for a while until our hotel is open.  So we have some options now.  

I also changed the sheets, vacuumed, dusted, and ordered our Christmas cards on line using photos for the first time through Shutterfly.  I thought that would be fun and meaningful with the dogs and us and even included Little Bit but had to spell his name "LB" to get him on the line.  

I also get a book credit for Audible.  I can see this is going to add up far faster than I can get them listened to.  But it's very exciting.  I downloaded Winter in Paradise by Elin Hilderbrand.  
When the month changes, my new book can be picked out - plus I can choose two others from another list which I never do.  

Ordered Science Diet for the dogs yesterday morning as well and probably will need to order another before we leave.

What I didn't do was get to work on the 2019 calendar but that is not urgent. 
I will need to revise my to do list and incorporate what is on it for certain days and time frames.  

Oh and I ordered another Isagenix order through George to keep me at Consultant Status b/c I only needed so many BV's and I was going to order more Christmas gifts anyway so went ahead and did some of that.  

Time to eat for doggies!   George feeds the doggies before we head off on the afternoon of errands.  Yes the above was done before 2:30.  

A funny thing happened.  Even though we knew the time changed for some odd reason we still were looking at our clocks and let ourselves get fooled by them.  We rushed around a bit and realized we had another hour to kill.  The morning went by very slowly and it was like we got that one hour back three or four times.  I was pleased!  I love it when time is slow.  


So we went to Lowe's to get our sexy looking fridge with the door in it.  Did you know that you can knock on the door and it will light up and you can see what is in it?  And guess what!  It was on sale with $600 knocked off b/c they are running their pre Thanksgiving sale.  Woah.  They had one left.  It arrives on DEC 1st for delivery.  Merry Christmas to us. 

Then we went to the Apple Store and I picked out my Apple Watch.  I'm a difficult customer.  But finally we figured out which one I needed.  I am getting the Generation 4 and it only adds $25 a month to the cell bill (AT&T) til it's paid off.  So that was nice.  I'm excited about it.  Have wanted it for a while.  It's a Christmas gift so I can't have it until then. 

And then we were running a bit late but managed to get there in time enough - to the reception of our friend's son Jamison who was married at Rosemont in Gallatin.  I snapped a pic driving in.  The rain had started.



Our table was pretty with the greenery and the roses and the candles.


The bride and groom cut the cake.



George snapped a pic of me with my phone much to my surprise.  


Our friend Christina was in the pic above.  Both Christina and her Mom and my good friend as well, Kathy is below.  Kathy has also just started our nutrition system recently and having good success with her numbers going in the right direction.  

I looked up to say something to George and "snap" goes the camera.  


So I took a selfie of us.  


I saw this on the internet (phone) on the way home and saved it for you guys.  I thought it was cute! Yes George was driving. lol 


So, the dinner was great at the wedding reception.  It was a private wedding of family only.  The food was great and was done my Mission BBQ.  I did have dessert b/c I rarely do now. 

So I hate to say it, but I still have issues.  So it never got better from the cleanse, much to my surprise.  So I'm going to have to go to the doctor.  I am trying one last thing - the anti D meds and see if that helps.  It did last time.  So I'll see how today and tomorrow goes and will make an appointment for either Wed, Thurs, Fri if not improve.  I promise.  I am concerned but I would be more concerned if I felt bad.  I feel as good as I've ever felt!  So I'm just not sure what the deal is. 

One thing is for sure though - we need to get it straightened out b/c I want to get back on my program and on with my life and get this nagging worry off my mind.  It's always something!

So keep me in your prayers. 

It's back to work today and back to a busy desk.  I have orientation this morning at the office and have to go to the plant this afternoon for a meeting there.  It's always something there too.  So I can't even get the work done on my desk.  It'll just grow more behind.  And sit there it will and everyone will have to grow some patience.  But what can you do?  lol 

Anyway off of here to get myself ready and out the door.  Hope you all have a great Monday.  I hear we are supposed to have severe storms tonight in the overnight.  I've got to get my nails done after work today.  No cleansing til the tummy things gets straight so I can look forward to eating with George tonight.  Unless it's leftovers.  I'm not really wanting left overs.  I need to go to the store. 

Well, ya'll have a great day!
