Have you ever just opened a bag of chocolate chips...
Have you ever just opened a bag of chocolate chips because you craved chocolate and it was the only thing in the house? Yeah, that's where I'm at. There is a bag of candy in the fridge, but it belongs to Keith. Ok,, sure I've had a little bit of it - who wouldn't? But I'm not going to gorge myself on it.
I did have a small-ish dinner last night... only one piece of meatloaf and some mashed potatoes. Neither of us felt like messing with the fresh green beans. I know, I know, that's no good but I tire easily and Keith, well, he does so much around the house; I'm very blessed!
We're waiting for a new leash to come in (it's on order now). It's called the Wacky Walkr (yep, that's how it's spelled) and it's supposed to help with pulling. The pulling really aggravates the arthritis in my back. Once it comes in (along with the "Crazy Coupler" - which you can see on the site), I'm hoping I can take the dogs out for walks; short walks to start and working up to longer ones.
Whoopsie.... I just noticed that I had posted the above on my other blog! It's A Tale of Two Dogs and certainly those readers don't want to hear about my chocolate chip dilemma! If you'd like to read it, please, link to the above and it will take you right there.
As I mentioned, my therapist is out for a number of weeks. I met with his colleague last week, and will again tomorrow. She's quite nice and understanding about my feelings on my doc being out, which is nice. I was afraid that she'd think I was crazy to be "mourning" this time without him.
I saw a doctor on Friday. First thing when I sat down in his office I noticed a scale. "No big deal" I thought; perhaps he's keeping track of his own weight or some odd thing like that. No. It seems new insurance regulations require that he take height, weight, blood pressure and pulse at each appointment. And, since everything has switched over to medical records he can't get away without doing it. Now, my Mom works in a doc's office and said that they are required to enter 3 vitals into the system. Who knows....? In any event, having eaten breakfast and lunch before my appointment and being fully dressed except for my shoes, I weighed 7 lbs more than I last did at home (when I'm undressed and haven't yet eaten). Either way, though, it's 7 lbs and was quite a shocker to see, let alone for anyone else to see. I don't talk numbers with my weight, I just don't!
Ok, well, if you're reading my blog(s), please join so you can get an email when I make a new post! Also, I'd love to hear your comments!! Is there anything you'd like to talk about or read about? Let me know!!
