Hi everyone...settle back and grab a bottle of water...this is going to be a long post...settled in yet? Good.
First of all I had to go back and read the last of the last thread...
, you're right being at home and keeping my foot elevated and iced is so much better than being here at work. My foot is already swelling back up as I sit here at my desk typing this. Its achy...and I'm getting grumpy. How is your toe?
, I have that recipe book-zine, CREAM OF THE CROP. I've heard others say that that is great recipe and I'm thinking the next time we have family up from Virginia Beach I would fix that. Maybe I'll fix that one morning over the weekend and have the kids over. Who knows...
Okay...caught up with that...
I left off with me going to the grocery store last Friday on the last thread. BIG mistake. I should've stayed home. My foot swelled up and got achy--too much walking.
Wayne and I went to Virginia Beach anyway on Saturday morning. I didn't do any walking really and I was able to prop my foot up down there just as well as if I was home. Do y'all remember me telling y'all that Wayne and I were going on a double date with my fil and latest lady friend?
Well...we did. When we arrived at my fil's house, she was there. Her name is Faye. A very nice lady. I want to say this first though--my fil looks wonderful. In fact, he looks better than he has in years and that's going back before the time my mil got sick and passed away. For THAT Wayne is extremely grateful. And my fil seems to be so happy. His friend believes in supplementing your diet with different herbs and eating healthy and I'm sure that is helping my fil. He's lost 6 lbs. since the first of the year; however, Faye says she's gained it because she's cooking so much now! Anyway...my fil looks great, Wayne feels more at ease and THAT I'm grateful for.
Oh yeah...where did we go?
We went out to eat. I ate vegetable lasagna--very very good. And then believe it or not we went out dancing...although I only slow-danced with Wayne. We had a great time. My fil and his friend go out dancing EVERY Saturday night. I'm glad they're so active; however, I just don't or cannot see me going dancing every Saturday night--am I fuddy-duddy already?!
We returned home yesterday but I was wore out...and all I did was prop my foot up and ice it. I did some laundry and fixed dinner but that was it...had parmesan chicken btw.
I ate very healthy over the weekend and was able to stay within my points range and I was really happy about THAT.
Now...to catch up with everyone on THIS thread...<remember to drink your water>...
, I took my bag of mixed vegetables with me to Virginia Beach! Sure did! However, I should've brought them to work with me. Wayne asked me if were still going to eat those veggies after my foot got through with them. Silly man! Told him...noooooooo!
, I bet you're as tire as I am of limping around! I'll check out those websites later.
, THAT was just horrible how those poor excuse for human beings left that woman behind! Just awful! <shaking my head> How could people do THAT?! Have you heard any news about her today? Paper tape: I use that--my skin is so sensitive to everything these days.
, I discovered paper tape YEARS AGO...DECADES AGO when I was in the hospital for surgery.
, FREE MONEY?!
Good for y'all! Do you flatten those cans out though? Do you have a recycling center--I'm not far from one.
Okaaaaay...back to work...
....wanting to put her foot up really badly right now...
