Sounds like it's not a great Thursday...so sorry, guys!
: so sorry about DD's friend! That must be so hard for her, especially at her age. The older I get (and the more people I lose to cancer), the more I feel that we should be doing more to learn about and get rid of cancer. I have a feeling a large check will be going out to the American Cancer Society later this year...it's such an awful disease.
I'm thrilled to hear about your vacation...DH and I rarely get away too, but our last weekend has really brought us closer together and reinvigorated our marriage!
The poconos are great! Very pretty! Hershey is wonderful, too...just driving up and down the street outside the factory is enough...the smell is beyond fabulous! If you get a chance, check out Harrisburg. The river area is gorgeous and great for strolls, there is a little island that you can get to by crossing an old iron bridge that has carnival rides and a minor league baseball stadium, and the capitol building is beautiful!
, so sorry to hear about your mum!
Hopefully it's just hemerroids (sp?) and nothing serious. I can understand how she would be embarrassed...I've had the same problem from time to time and never told my doctor. I don't want him poking around down there!
Glad she's standing up for herself and getting it checking out.
, enjoy the park...it sounds lovely and a great place to release stress!
I'm so sorry to hear about work...I guess there are two things you can do. You can approach the doctor at a time when he is less busy and tell him your concerns. If that doesn't work, go to your superior and lodge a complaint. OR, you can play hardball, and just make his report late everytime he sends someone late to you. If he protests, just let him know that you find it hard to give him the courtesy of a quick report when he does not give you the same professional courtesy. He'll get the point very quickly. You have something he wants, and he has to treat you courteously to get it. Period. Devious
, but it works.
Chest pain and nausea? Aren't those two signs of heart attack???? You have me very worried! I hope you are at the doctor right now getting checked...please let us know how you are!
You are very much in my prayers! I can see how a late period could lead to stress, though (which causes chest pain and nausea in me...). Glad it came and you can relax. Isn't it funny how we hate having it, but are totally upset when it doesn't come on time?
, glad to see you back! I go to OA as well, and it's great. There's a girl in our group who has been coming for over a year, but is not on a food plan, has not taken any of the steps yet, but is trying. Coming to the meetings is her first step, and she's very well accepted in our group. I hope you can try it when you are ready. I'm amazed at all it is doing for me! We have a nascar track near us and people here are HUGE Nascar fans. I'm not sure I get the point...the races go on forever and ever...but I recognize that it is a big deal around here.
, great luck with your script! I'm sure it will be fabulous, considering your coup at your last performance! How did the costume-making go? Sorry your doctor gave you heck, though glad you went. I find myself in that position all the time...I try not to bother the doctor, but when I do, I hear that I should have come in a long time ago...Oy! Hope you remain castless, but it heals safely!
, can your husband give workshops on how to support an SBD wife???
: What a sweetheart he is! I hope he has an extra special birthday! I think it's amazing that Chuck E. has a salad bar now. I think you could bring some meat and toss it on the salad to make a great lunch...that pizza has sugar in the crust, sugar in the sauce, full fat cheese, and the pineapple is not op...stay away from it, girl! I know you can do this!
, so sorry you are stuck making a cake! One day I think I can do that, but definitely not now. I would eat it without even thinking about it. *sigh* Good for you that you can do it...but please don't feel guilty about being cranky during TOM. We are *all* like that, some more than others (
), and it's a natural part of life. Just apologize and give him a hug, then go on with life, eh?
Forgot to do my darn situps today. I'm still craving, but not sure why. Maybe the extra carbs (I had one or two a day on vacation rather than just one)? I'm just a bit hungry...and planned to eat the same stuff I usually do...it's just not filling me up the same way. Oy. The scale remains my friend, though...which is great.
Had burgers last night for dinner on those Ezekiel buns and it was wonderful!!!
Yum! Having tuna with tomatoes and lettuce, probably some 3 bean salad and coleslaw, too, for lunch. Tonight we are having cashew chicken salad on ezekiel buns with a salad on the side for dinner. I have Jazzercise tonight and am a bit scared as I didn't go last week due to vacation. I'm hoping I can get through it...but if I do, I'll feel amazing!
A couple people mentioned in the Wed. chat that they are bored with their selection and with salads...check a couple of recent threads on that subject and look at the recipe forum...there are a ton of wonderful things to make there and you can have dinner leftovers for lunch! I think the key to being successful at SBD is to keep changing things around and have lots of different foods! I love remaking Cooking Light recipes. You can find them at www.cookinglight.com
(you have to register to see the recipes, but it is free and worth the time!).
Hope everyone has a much better day...I'm holding you in my prayers!
