Jeannie drove me to my appointment this morning, and then we went by her medical facility on the way home so she could get her first m'gram. She just turned 40 and was a bit apprehensive about it, but said it wasn't bad at all.
After all that we stopped by Costco. I finally broke down and bought a toaster. I've been doing without one for several years because I didn't want to buy anything made in China, but I just gave up - the only American made toaster available that I can find is a 1940 retro refurbished model for $150.
With the new toaster you may be able to figure out what I bought to go with it - a big box of Eggos (Costco's brand which is much cheaper and much healthier, plus tastes better.) I had bacon, eggs, and eggos for supper this evening. Restocked my supply of frozen fish filets, a couple bottles of wine, and a big container of biscotti which I love to have on hand when I want something sweet (and they contain 180 calories each!). Since it was lunch time we had one of Costco's Hebrew National hot dogs to eat. This is a day to just stray from my normally healthy diet and eat stuff I like but don't often indulge in.
The rain we had a week or so ago brought out all the weeds in the ground, so tomorrow I hope to go out and pull a bunch of them before we get another whole week of rain beginning Wednesday.
One thing that has occurred since I got sick is that my bood pressure went down so much that I am not taking anything for it at present. I take my blood pressure every couple of days and it is staying low. I would love to never have to go back to the meds.
I am really starting to feel so much better. It hasn't been all that long since I slept half the day, and I rarely take a nap lately. But I'm tired tonight so I will soon turn off the computer and hit my wonderful comfy bed.
