Well, the wanderers are back in the nest...and I can hold both eyes open at the same time, so thought I'd get a post going. DH has me watching some 1970's western (ugh), so I thought I'd "multi task" LOL. DS22's move went well. His internet was connected yesterday (just in the nick of time...his head was about to explode LOL) and he's out with friends eating burritos as we speak, so life is good there. DS19 is visiting college pals this weekend and is really liking his internship, so life is good there too. Whew! My budget is in the ICU. It's going to be a very quiet month around here
I hate to bring this up, but our weather is chilly (and I LOVE it!)...60 degrees and rainy today, and most of this week has been the same. It's not helping the weekend festivals and art shows,though, so that is sad. I feel so much better when it's cooler. I'll try to send some east and south.
I went to the doctor last week...the travel food finally caught up with me. I saw someone new (a local doc), and he was GREAT! He didn't look at me like I was crazy at all. In fact, he talked about how his wife has the same reaction I do whenever she ingests aspartame. He suggested traveling with an H2 blocker instead of any respiratory allergy meds, since I'm eating my allergen rather than inhaling it. He also gave me a steroid shot to take the edge off my reaction (major congestion...even in my ears) and told me I have a quirky immune system. LOL That seemed pretty consistent with the rest of me, so I accepted his diagnosis gladly. Of course, he's a fitness nut and reminded me that the best way to deal with these sorts of things is through exercise. (yuck
) It's a better idea than the meds, so it's time to get back OP.
Desk...I'm going to plan to get back on the daily thread next week. Time to get back in the saddle. I've missed your inspiration and enthusiasm. GREAT JOB on the 25 pounds! I know what you mean about trying to keep everyone happy...it's impossible.
Dawn...GREAT to see you again! I need to get back on track again too! CONGRATS on quitting smoking! Awesome!!
Margo...I'm so sorry to hear about your Curves closing, but it sounds like you have great plans in preparing for that sweet grandbaby. I know just what you mean about old guys being set in their ways. LOL Don't get in between them...could be dangerous!! LOL
Valorie...Hope you had a great time with your guests!
Melissa...Ouch! Hope DH is feeling better, and you're having a chance to enjoy that pool! ...especially with your weather as hot as it has been. Take a break this weekend...you've earned one!
Barri...Meant to mention last time that I hope the doctor appointment went well. Have you gone vegetarian? Great job on the awesome grades!
Kim...Wow! I hope you've had some relief since those terribly hot days! Take care!
Hellos to Nancy and all the rest of the BEST! Glad to see you're keeping the home fires burning here!
