I am so tired! Yesterday was such a LONG day but it was worth it. We are all set for surgery on the 23rd. I completed the whole day of classes and hvae been pre-admitted to the hospital. All we need is for time to fly by LOL
At the office yesterday, they weighed me and I was 221! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
It was hard to be with my hubby for all that time (Wednesday night through last night) and watch him eat regular food while I slurped at my protein drinks. I stole a french fry from him Wednesday night at Wendy’s though LOL
My surgeon is so smart – he’s been doing these surgeries for eleven years and is world-renown. He’s also kinda good looking, which doesn’t hurt!
We were in class, a group of about seven of us, plus support people. Only one guy didn’t have a support person with him; he turned out to be the class clown (isn’t there one where ever you go, no matter how old you get?).
Came home last night to a HOT house….the air conditioner broke and the house temp was 82* at 9:00 pm. Thank God for ceiling fans. Hubby fixed it today, thank God!
Just got home from watching KUNG FU PANDA. It was alright. Daniel loved it and that’s what matters.
I need to order some Isopure, that was highly recommended yesterday for post-surgery. The first ten days will be clear liquids only, so I better find some that I like….
Okay, off to see what’s new in the rest of the world.
That baby is so cute! My baby was round-faced but not quite that round-faced when he was that little….his face has always been more heart-shaped, and of course, a bit browner than that baby-face.
Anyhooooooooooow, it’s Wednesday, I’m at the library borrowing their computer because I spent the morning asleep. Yeah, I went to Curves and worked out but afterwards was overwhelmed with sleep, so that’s what I did. Then I woke up and had some Totino’s Pizza Rolls and read for a while (the new Diane magazine that Curves puts out) and then decided to come here. I needed to type some stuff up for school; we need volunteers to read to the children during the day (in our new library) and I volunteered to get the volunteers.
I’m always volunteering for something, LOL
shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! I’m at the library, I can’t LOL too LOUDLY!
So I typed up a note to give to the teachers, asking them which days of the week and what times would work best; and then a note to parents and parishioners asking them to help us out. The teachers will be getting their note first and after I know what days and times will work, I can sned out the note to the parents and put it in the church bulletin.
I borrowed Ratatouille from the library today; we saw it when it came out (not dh, though) and ds wanted to see it again. It came in today. Maybe we can watch it Friday night.
Not sure what kind of mood I’m in today…….was sleepy earlier, now I’m just kind of thinking about stuff. Christmas is coming. Family stuff. Still missing my dad.
I found out yesterday that my brother and his family are coming to the KCK area for Christmas. We don’t travel for Christmas. Well, we have TWICE since our marriage: the first time in 1991 after my dad’s death and the second time was in 1998 when I was expecting Daniel. My dh is taking off work the week after Christmas but I know without asking him that he won’t want to go to KCK and that’s alright, because I don’t want to go anyway. It’s just too far to travel, we don’t have the $$ right now to travel (I’m saving my $$ to go to KC or St. Louis to see Michael Buble already!!), it’s just best to stay home. Although, ds asked if we could go to COLORADO to snowboard LOL I think one of his schoolmates’ families goes to Colorado for Christmas. Another family goes to Orlando every Christmas……….we are boring, we just stay home!
Okay, I suppose it’s time to say so long.
The bird was stuffed and in the oven by noon and we were all stuffed and on the couch by 5:00 pm. Wow, what a meal. We had turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and homemade gravy, homemade rolls, green beans and glazed carrots and homemade cranberry sauce. And we had cherry pie and mincemeat pie. Oh and cool whip for the cherry pie. I am not going to eat again until tomorrow!
My dh and ds are watching television, “Honey, I Blew Up the Kid” but it was too saccharine for me, I couldn’t watch it. So I decided to come here and check my email and to blog. I’ll go to my “Friends Page” next and see what’s new in the rest of the world.
After stuffing ourselves, I took my mom home and we made a pit-stop at Walmart…do you know that they already have their Black Friday prices marked? We made a purchase for ds…something he REALLY wants…saved $20 from the internet price at Toys R Us and from the manufacturer’s website. Woo hoo!
I am thankful for so many things: God, my sobriety, serenity, my family and friends….what are you thankful for??
Anyhow, that’s what I’ve been doing today. I hope that everyone had a good day.
We went to the movies tonight…saw The Game Plan. It was cute. I went in expecting to NOT like it since it has that guy, The Rock, in it, plus there was going to be football. But it was a good show. Daniel really enjoyed it, too. We ate a huge bucket of popcorn and shared a huge Diet Dr. Pepper. Then afterwards, dh wanted to go out for dinner. Ack! I ordered a salad and was only able to eat half. Thank goodness for doggie bags! I can have the other half tomorrow for lunch.
I’m making up my menu for next week. I do that so that I will stick to my budget. DS gets to choose the meal once a week and this week he wants pizza. We (dh and I) aren’t crazy about Totino’s pizza so this week I offered to buy a pizza kit and we’ll make one from scratch.
I am so SLEEPY today. Last night I was really restless…this morning after taking ds to school, I took a nap on the couch for a couple hours but ever since I’m still tired and could fall asleep if I just lay down…not sure what is going on. Need to take my vitamins…that’s going to be a part of my life once I have surgery…
Speaking of surgery I am still waiting to hear from them to schedule my consultation. I don’t care when they want me there, I’ll cancel everything else to get there!
Okay, it’s going to be 8 pm soon…going to sit with ds and watch tv a while.
Adios for now!
