October 21, 2011 – – – Today started off slowly and painfully as usual. I’ve changed my morning pills to: 2 glucosamine, 3 Krill Oil with Evening Primrose, 2 probiotics and Cymbalta. I’m going to try and find some vitamins that aren’t made with “soy”.
Work was busy this morning. Then Boss decided he wanted to take me out to lunch for my birthday (a month late). The guys wanted to go to El Potro so I told Boss that’s where I wanted to go. I can eat meat off their buffet. I was trying to decide if I was going to “cheat” and eat chips and those chimichanga rolls that I like so much when I got hit with flaxseed revenge. I decided that my body was ridding itself of unwanted fat and, no, I did not want to cheat. I was so glad I ate what I was supposed to. I didn’t crash mid afternoon like they all did. 🙂
Still in pain, I took a half of a hydrocodone. Today it was my knee that hurt and the inside of my groin. I worked until 5:30 then headed to Wal-Mart to get a few things before I picked up Chewy to bring home for the weekend. He’s my son’s beagle and I love him like he was my child.
I hobbled around Wal-Mart and headed to my son’s. He popped my back while I was there. Wow! I was out all the way down. I couldn’t believe how much better I felt after he did it. I miss him living with us. At least he was there when I needed him.
Chewy was so excited to go home with me. He’s such a sweet little boy. He held his head out the window for a while and then he’d pull it back in, shake his head and do it again. He had a big time all the way here.
I had leftover chili for dinner. The dogs played and now we are winding down. I am just so relieved that I can breathe without pain.
October 22, 2011 – – – Got up around 6:30 to use the bathroom and I heard Miss Girl get off the sofa. It was potty time for the dogs too. Gave them their morning cheese and let them outside. It was 34 degrees out there this morning. Brrr! Love it!
I typically go back to bed on a Saturday but got on up and did my usual morning routine and watched my session 4 video Bible Study on Jonah while eating breakfast and sharing with the dogs.
Got some laundry done, including the blankets on the sofas. Got them dry and put them back and the dogs curled up on them and went to sleep. Sounds like a good idea! 🙂
So I laid down to take a nap and slept hard until about 3:30. It was awesome!
Sat outside and enjoyed the sunshine. Hallmark Man decided not to cook steaks. Kinda sucked. I have been looking forward to them all day. So I cooked some organic hamburger patties and organic broccoli for dinner.
I wish I could do more. Sitting around and hobbling around doesn’t help.
October 23, 2011 – – Dogs got me up at a little after 6am to go to the bathroom. I told them “nite-nite” and went back to bed. I had been awake every every two hours peeing last night. I finally got up after 9:30. I ate breakfast and got a shower before heading off to get soy sauce, lemons and I happened upon some fresh collard greens. Stocked up on eggs and some chicken while I was there. When I got home, I gave Chewy and Miss Girl a bath. Now they both smell good. They’ve gotten a ton of cheese today. 🙂
