Was it the witch in the Wizard of Oz that just melted onto the floor? I think it could happen to me! It's 101 and climbing, although it's felt much hotter to me today. I went to Costco earlier and replenished my ice cream supply!
I went to the gym last night, the first time in probably 3 wks. I thought I would be really set back in what I could do, but it actually felt wonderful to be exercising. I also noticed that I couldn't feel pain from the mesh used to close the hernia, so I am hopeful that it's healing well, and I didn't have the sore muscles that sometimes follow a good workout. I've promised myself to not be concerned with getting rid of my little round belly until closer to a year post-op, and I want to make sure I've healed thoroughly. At 122.6 I'm over my 1st goal, and if I keep eating ice cream like I have I'll meet my 2nd goal of 125 very soon! (The ice cream is no doubt going straight to the little round belly!)
I got my internet with ATT up and working. I've been looking for an email alternative to AOL which gives me no end of trouble, and was happy to know I could get an email address with ATT. Unfortunately, I found out that it is actually with Yahoo, who takes care of their email stuff. At least 15 or more years ago I belonged to a Yahoo group which has now migrated to Facebook so I no longer have contact with them, but my sign-in name and email have remained. I tried to change it but without success, so I will just let it go for now. I think if I could find a reasonable user friendly email program I would even be willing to pay for it.
The internet connection seems good and about the same speed as what I got with Verizon. I'll wait a day or two to cancel Verizon, just to make sure ATT works out ok. I will have to say that all the ATT techs and representatives I've spoken to have been outstanding, and don't want to leave me on my own until I'm absolutely sure I have everything right. Having my ATT television service for the past 6 months I can also say that when I had a problem and had to call them I got excellent service then as well.
Although I can't find many programs to record, I find a few such as Animal Cops-Houston, and once in a while a history or science program that sounds good. Movies just don't interest me, nor do sports, and that's about half of what TV is all about. Then deduct half of what's left for silly game shows, sitcoms, and reality shows, and there is very little left. What remains is primarily documentaries about WW II and now there are some on Vietnam. That doesn't leave me much TV watching potential, does it, but it feels good to me to have it available - just wish the cost wasn't so high.
I'm finally cooling off. I thought I had High Cool on but in fact had High Fan Only. The unit is on the ceiling so I have to look straight up to read it, and it gets distorted so I often get the wrong setting.
My rent bill which includes utilities is $13+ less than last month, but just slightly less electricity used. I wonder if the solar panels the Park added has contributed to my bill being lower. I hope that's what it is and will continue to result in a slightly lower cost for me.
I'm hungry and ready to go fix a quick meal, but the kitchen is very hot this time of day. I guess I'll wait a little while - my thermometer is showing 102 and over 93 inside the house. I haven't been swimming in years but if I had a pool right now I'd be in it!
