And just like that...it clicked into Fall.
Hello, Dearies, and welcome to another blissful Sunday here in Hoosierville. I managed to snuggle into the big girl sleigh bed until noon today. It was cool and cloudy this morning and I just didn't feel like moving...so I didn't!
I made some good progress on Elliana last night while watching Mad Men and drooling over that handsome dasterdly Don Draper. Only four more episodes left until I finish the series, so I have to start thinking about the next? Sopranos? West Wing? Tudors?
I know, I know. I've seen each at least a dozen times, but until I get my ability to stitch and watch TeeVee sorted better (which will involve paying attention more and a less complicated stitchy project), I want something familiar that I can just listen to.
When JB is here, we watch the sports 24/7, and I've come to be very fond of the Philadelphia 76ers, the Phillies, and the Flyers. Who knew I could be a baseball fan?! Now that the footbal is starting again though, I suppose that I better brush up on the Eagles in addition to my Irish.
I did receive an email from a very concerned stitchy sister that JB and I had broken up, because of my alone time shenanagins. No, Dearie...JB is in NJ visiting with his mom. He likes to get back there about every six weeks or so to check in on her, but the pandemic kinda threw that out of whack and he was overdue for a visit. This alone time (for me, anyway) is critical to my sanity, since my propensity for hermit spinstering is strong and keeps the voices in my head nice and quiet.
So onward we go. My only agenda for today is laundry, which is sploshing as we speak, and a few minites getting organized for the week ahead. I am hitting it hard in the diet department with a protein shake fast for five days (yes...medically approved), so I need to get them in the fridge and all of the temptations hidden away.
I will be fasting Monday thru Friday and then we'll take a look at the after treatment weight to determine if I need another week, or if I can return to smoothies and salads. The goal here is to hit the 112 for IU first, then maintain 110 for a few weeks, and then finally, to get below 100 by year's end.
My off weight on Friday was 115.
Menopause, Crohn's, stress, and a possible face infection requiring antibiotics are all the culprits, but no matter the cause...the transplant doc will be calling in a few weeks and will not be happy if I am not back on track.
Enough of that. I hope that you are enjoying yourself today and that if you have tomorrow off you will be safe and happy and find a way to do something that makes your heart sing! Come tell me all about it!
