Hello Hello! It's hump day alreadyyyyy! Monday holidays are like magic, right?

Yesterday was my first day in my real new job without all of the other jobs in my way! I can't believe what an awesome and productive day I had. I loved it.

QOTD: Are you fussy about keeping closets and drawers organized? Grim and I are equally fussy about different drawers, drawers, closets and cabinets throughout the house. He won't let me fold towels for the linen closet or load the dishwasher, and I won't let him stack Tupperware or put away away pantry items.

I have no idea how or why my appetite disappeared for a few months, but damn it is back with a vengeance. I had a bunch of snacks at the office that were saved up from 2 months of bringing them and never eating them. I had like 6 yesterday. Seriously ravenous. I'm not going to fight it too hard, I must need it for some reason. But I just need to make better low carb choices instead of the pretzels and granola bars I had yesterday.

Here is my plan for eating "on plan" extras:

B: Protein Coffee

S: 2 Costco Egg Bites

L: Chicken & Veggies

S: Apple & Volpi Roltini & Almonds

D: Chili & Cheese Quesadilla

Good morning, everybody!

JB, I was kind of hoping that the White Sox would make a comeback against the Astro's so that I would have a chance to watch the Red Sox live in the play-offs. The White Sox tickets aren't that hard to get in Chicago, especially compared to the Cubs. But it was never close.

Tomorrow, I am going to Dallas to see DD. We should have a fun weekend: Dead & Company on Thursday night, dinner on Friday night and down to Waco for the Baylor BYU game on Saturday. I am going to work remotely on Thursday and Friday, so no vacation. The hotel seems to have a good gym, so I will try and get some time in there.

My youngest got accepted to one of his colleges last night. I think that he was happy, but I wouldn't call it jumping for joy, exactly.

We have an outdoor pizza event at work tonight. I will need to stop by for awhile, but hoping to get home at a reasonable time to lift and pack.

QOTD: In general, Marilyn manages the household. I have a few spots that I try to keep organized: my closet, under my bathroom sink, mail area in the kitchen, dining room table and garage. She was laughing the other day, and said she never thought she would see the day when I kept my closet neater than hers.

Breakfast: Egg sandwhich

Lunch: salmon

Dinner: pizza

Have a great day, all!

I sure enjoyed the pics you posted yesterday today. They looked so cool and special!

congrats to your son! Sometimes young men don't show exactly how they feel. I'm sure it was a tempered reaction. Waiting to see how the others go!

Glad you are back on your feet today.

the fourth picture from the bottom is an eggshell. Nobody could figure out how they cut it without cracking or chipping it.

I know spiders serve a purpose but I like it best when they do that away from me and where I don't see them or their webs

Good morning everyone! Feeling so much better this morning. The tinnitus is almost gone and the nausea let up a lot. I ate breakfast for the first time in 5 days. Let me tell you...I never want another myelogram in my entire life. While I think my experience isn't the normal response it sure was hell.

I have some calls to make today. I may got pick up a few copies of my report on the myelogram and see if the doctors office needs one. The hospital system I have to go through doesn't always send the results to the doctor who ordered them...esp if they are outside that system. I have to call about my pain patch refill. I should've done it before but I felt so rotten it didn't even cross my mind.

A trip to Walmart will probably happen if they have the patch in stock. Otherwise it might happen tomorrow. We'll see.

QOTD: I thrive in chaos. My chainmaille supplies are like a literal cluster bomb went off. Every time I try to organize I get overwhelmed and give up. I know it's not good but I just seem to max out over organizing. My creativeness does better on chaos for some reason.

B: JUST egg, shredded cheese, tiny piece of GF pumpkin bread and coffee

L: PP shake or chuck roast with carrots...will depend on my tummy

D: no idea

S: yogurt, jerky and ???

Just keep swimming!
