That about sums it up about my day. My husband got paid and we did our usual thing like we do every month.....buy all our pharmaceuticals, cat food (Jack would be ONE unhappy kitty if we skipped that part of the routine!), electrodes for my TENS machine, we washed the car, got cash from the bank, went to Checker for an air filter for our "baby", and stopped at the grocery store. We JUST got back home and are exhausted. My feet are sooooooo big I can hardly bend them. I cannot WAIT for my weight loss surgery. It's detrimental to my health. I can barely move around WITH my walker. I can't bend down.....there's just so many things I can't do now, but I can do when I lose weight.
My husband and I are going to a support group on November 17th as part of my weight loss program. It sounds really good-it talks about holiday eating and how NOT to blow it over the holidays! What is the norm? Gain 5 pounds over the holiday season? I know they did a study about that, but because of my fibro "fog" that's another thing that got lost in the fog! Anyway, at my initial assessment they said it would be beneficial to attend the support group even before I've had the surgery. That way I can ask questions about what to expect. Maybe take away some of the "fear" component of going under the knife!!
I really am scared (and excited about the outcome) about what's coming up. I hope everything goes OK.
Well, I gotta eat supper and then put my poor, blown up feet high up on my elevator pillow edge and attempt to read my Janet Evanovich book. I've got her brand new one out, "Wicked Appetite." I just finished her other new Stephanie Plum book, "Sizzling Sixteen." If you like reading funny mysteries, she is your author!! I just love her to death. I should have listened to my mom long ago and given her a chance! Oh, well, I'm reading her now and have her whole Stephanie Plum series. If you want to check her out, she has a cool website at www.evanovich.com. I should get commission, don't ya think? LOL!
Hope everyone has a great evening (or morning, wherever you are) and I hope I made it easier for my foreign visitors by adding a website translator at the top of my blog. I was reading my blog stats and I have a lot of foreign visitors, so I thought I'd be nice and add that. :0)
TO DAD AND GINA: I hope you two are having the time of your lives. You both deserve it. Post more pictures, please. And for all my faithful followers, Gina is a new blogger and you can find her by clicking HERE. I'm sure she would love the company and some new followers. She's a really great gal whom I'm growing to be quite fond of. So Dad, don't mess it up! LOL (just kidding)! I love ya both!!
God bless you all!
