Good Morning.

Another gray, rainy day with above normal temperatures again.  It is supposed to be more like December by this evening.

Incredibly bad day at work yesterday.  I hadn't even taken my coat off after lunch and I was so very tempted to put down those legal eagle assistant wings and call it a day or perhaps hang them up for good.  I'm getting too old for this you know what.  After work it was an hour's wait in the endroconologists office.  Everything is stable in that department and although some of my levels dropped in the bone density department I've moved back from osteoporosis back to osteopenia.  He had mentioned that perhaps I could get off the medication at the visit before testing but not going to happen.  Of course if I stuck to exercising it would definitely help along with my bp and cholesterol etc so I need to  stop making excuses and start making changes.  There was a patient that came in at 6 sat down for less than a minute and went to the desk and was bi****ing and complaining about the wait.  The receptionist explained that the doctor had had emergencies etc.  Didn't matter she made her scene in front of the entire waiting room and then stomped out.  We all looked at each other and wondered what planet she lives on that a doctor's office ever runs on time. I always bring a book or a magazine (except of course last night) and I'm prepared to wait....and when I don't have to wait I'm pleasantly surprised.  She was so rude and I felt so bad for the girl behind the desk who is the sweetest thing.  She always greets you by name asks how you're doing....

I was so tired last night that I went upstairs to watch TV.  I never remember turning off the tv or the light and then first thing I knew it was 5:30AM.  I haven't slept through the night since I don't know when.

Back to the "place" again this morning.  The boss is in court and then off to a meeting outside the office.  I'm actually hoping that I may not see him at all today.  I'm told to get one thing done but then stuff just gets thrown at me and never sure how I'm supposed to get the original thing done.  Hopefully, with him gone...,maybe I'll get the original thing done.  May have to use a stick to poke away others....

Nancy-how was the training session?  Did your DD start her new job?

Better get moving...I'm hearing the clock tick tock....

Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!

Good morning ladies! So sorry to read about your work issues Susan. I feel for you; no one should dislike going to work. You know, Nancy, Margo, and everyone … waving hello, hope you are well. Did I tell you all that the doctor took DH off of his meds for diabetes? During his visit last week they did another A1C and his number was 5.7% … 7% is considered good. In any event, DH’s blood pressure readings were also the best they have been in years. DH has been on blood pressure meds since he was in his early 20s … and that medication, along with cholesterol meds, remains intact. Anyway, the reason for telling this … since DH was diagnosed with diabetes back in March, he has lost close to 40 pounds. It drives me crazy and makes me feel defeated. I really should be jumping on the wagon with him instead of looking at him and having pity for myself. It is all mental with me! DH has always been a gym rat … I don’t think he has ever missed a day of working out in the 32 years I’ve known him. The change he made was walking; two half hour walks every single day. One mid afternoon or right after work, and the second is about an hour after dinner. His diet has pretty much stayed the exact same as before diabetes. He has never been a big sweet eater, and now we do purchase sugar free cookies and sugar free candy in case the snack urge hits him. But it is the walking … the walking changed his life. The big question I have for myself … why not put your shoes on and walk with him? I cannot answer that. I need to STOP making excuses and START making changes. Thank you for the start up today Susan! I slept like a log last night! Didn’t wake up until 5:30 AM; I let the puppies out & did my potty run and thought I still feel tired, so I went back to bed and fell back to sleep! OMG!!! The DH returns home this morning, no idea if he will be staying home or running up to the offices. That kind of puts a damper on making any plans for today … since I could be tagging along to the office. My house is clean, I do want to clean out and wipe down the refrig. And I always have an ironing pile. So I am certain I’ll find things to productively occupy my morning. ;) Hope each of you has a pleasant Wednesday. Hugs to all, iVillage is not letting me copy and paste with color, and it wont let me change font ... sorry if this is too small to easily read! Why am I apologizing for board issues??? LOL.
