I'm hopeful that things will start looking up again. I took Jeannie to her appointment this morning, but she declined donuts today. Another time.
I returned the Garmin GPS to Costco. I believe it has all the features of my old GPS but they just put new labels on everything, and it takes more steps to get to what I am looking for. It may work better for someone who is used to i-Phones and Apps, but I'm not going to waste brainpower trying to figure it out. I'm wondering if a hand-held GPS might be a better idea for me. I may just do as I usually do for a long trip, and that is to map it out and print it in Mapquest. It's a time consuming process to force Mapquest to map my preferences in traveling, i.e., no interstate travel. But in the end I get what I want and have fun in the planning process.
I took another look at my old GPS and it says no maps are available. Plugging it into my computer, Garmin informs me that I can buy the map set. When I last updated this GPS it was for "lifetime" maps, and I don't know if I want to give them any more money for what I already purchased.
After the trip to Costco to return the GPS and a trip to Walmart Optical to pick up my new eyeglass lens, I was still early for my doctor's appointment but went in anyway. They told me they would call me when an examining room was available. I didn't wait over two minutes until the nurse came to get me - I lost about 3# since last week - and put me in a room to wait for the doctor. I thought I'd be there for a while because it was still half an hour until my appointment, but he walked in the door just a few minutes later. I left with a prescription for the Z-Pack antibiotic. I sure hope to get over this cough very soon as I think it keeps getting worse.
I like this doctor and may decide to select him as my primary care physician.
I came home and decided to make myself a protein shake, and included an extra scoop of ice cream! Got to get those pounds back, although I don't know if it is worth it to have to be obsessed with keeping my weight at a level higher than is comfortable for me to take in calories. It must be just as bad as having to worry about going over your calorie level and gaining weight. I look and feel so much better with the extra pounds so I hate to go back to looking anorexic.
The cooler weather - in the 70's - is just great although it's hot in the sun!
