SO much better today.  It was more of a normal day at work.  Less people, less fines, less cards.  Whew!  And feeling less sick -- more like myself.

Thanks everyone for your good wishes and prayers.  They are very much appreciated.  It always amazes me that people I have never met care that much about me.  Blogging really does bring you good friends.

Hey, just heard about Boston Market removing the salt shakers from the tables at their restaurants.  You have to go to the beverage station to get any salt.  Hooray for them.  I hate it when I make a good meal and then without even tasting the food people grab the salt shaker and shake away.  I like salt as much as anyone, but try the food first, folks.

Went food shopping after work today.  It's my least favorite thing to do because it always takes me so long.  But I love getting bargains and I sure did today.  I got chicken legs and thighs on sale.  I cut them apart and put them in storage bags.  So for $3 I got three meals.  Cool!  The same with the pork chops.  I thought $12!  But when I separated it out I got three meals so $4 a meal isn't bad.

All of the great blogs I've been reading have really inspired me.  I am going to start buying the fresh veggies while they are on sale and freeze them.  Then when winter comes I will have some of the summer to enjoy.  Let's see if I can follow through with my good intentions.

Tomorrow morning I go to see the orthopedic specialist.  I am more than a little nervous about it.  I am hoping that the doctor will examine me, know exactly what to do to help me, and in a few weeks I will be back to my old self.  I am not liking my new self with all the pain I am experiencing.  But I am not complaining because so many people are so much worse off than I am.  At least I am still walking even if I do have a lot of pain doing so.

Joe went to Prayer Group at church tonight.  I drove him over there, but didn't stay because I wanted to go home and put my leg up.  When he is done, he will call me and I will go pick him up.  Church is only 4 minutes from home, so it isn't bad at all.

I'm going to try to rest until it's time to go get Joe.  Have a great night folks.  Thanks for reading my ramblings.


  1. Oh Kathy, I'll be praying for you for your doctor appt. tomorrow. I hope you will be calm...I am always a nervous person with doctors so I do understand. I will pray you will get some answers and will be out of pain soon. By the way...good deals on the meat purchases!

  2. My husband is a salt freak. He salts everything including pizza! I think it's odd. I swear it's a wonder his blood pressure isn't through the roof.

    Hope your appt. goes well tomorrow. You will be in my thoughts friend.

  3. Great to hear Joe was well enough to go.It was better that you rest.
    Super deals on the meats!I love getting more for my money.By the way there was a neat recipe in the back pages of the Walmart circular last week. True they were based on packaged products (like Velveeta shells)but I'm sure they can be adapted to fresh ingredients...
    Hope all goes well at the dr.
