Oh where, oh where have I been?
It has been an AGE since I have written an entry in my blog, and two both of you who regularly read my dronings, I dearly apologize. There has just been so much going on right now. So, apologies in advance, this entry may drone on even longer!!!
Mom had her heart procedure done one week ago yesterday. They "shocked" her heart back into rhythm. Knock on wood, she is feeling great and we hope it lasts! She still tires out, but not as quickly as she used to. It will take her a little bit of time to work back to her normal pace. I keep telling her that this whole heart ordeal may have been a way to get her to slow down a little. She sounds so much more energetic and healthy than she has in almost a year. She was always worn out, and that tended to bother me. Heck, maybe that is my problem. I am always worn out...but I think mine is because of my diabetes. I still need to call Dr. Pollom about the Diabetes Care Center contacting me about my insulin pump consultation. They haven't called yet. I bet he forgot. I would like to get on that soon. I really think it will help alleviate how crappy I feel all the time. I bet that I will feel a big difference. When you feel like crap all the time, it becomes the norm.
Mom went with me to my urology appointment yesterday, and I took the rest of the day off. It was a beautiful day to drive to Avon. Dr. Kim checked things out and said that "I graduated" from his care. That was good news. Let's hope that I will never need his care again! (Cross your fingers!) Mom and I then drove to Moody Meats there in Avon, and got meat to fill the freezer for a little while. I found my Brat Burgers that I love!!!! I tried one for the first time at the restaurant in Shedd Aquarium in Chicago. Good stuff! Also got some bacon, sausage, ground beef, and pork chops. Had to get a couple New York strips as well. Love 'em! Should be having some good dinners here in the next few weeks!
We had lunch at Longhorn Steak House - yum! While we were eating, Jenny Epple, one of pals from Butler walked in with her baby! I made sure we exchanged e-mail addresses so that she, Christy Walker and I could get together for dinner and catch up. What a surprise!
Speaking of surprises, on the way back from lunch I noticed that Avon still has a Dog 'N Suds!!!! Sooooo, I had to have Mom stop so that I could get a Diet Root Beer Freeze! Loooove those! In fact, it makes me want to drive back there today to get another one. I love 'em!
We went to Sam's Club and reproduced the pictures for "Love, Sex & the IRS" and also did a little shopping. Then she took me home. A full day for both of us! So much fun, in fact, that I am not motivated at all today at work and don't feel like doing anything! Oh, well...
Auditions for "The Spitfire Grill" are this coming Monday and Tuesday. Diann Ryan and Travis Jensen both e-mailed and said that they would not be able to audition due to their schedules. I am hoping that I will get a good turnout of good talent. These roles must be strong singers and actors. We shall see. Can't wait to start working on the show, though!
Lunchtime is drawing near. I am starting to get hungry. Had some Low Sugar Apples and Cinnamon oatmeal earlier, but someone's lunch is smelling up the hallway, and it is making me want to munch. Mmmmmmm.
The hours are crawling by today...
