with you today:
One big honkin' zit I'm getting from eating entirely too much Talenti gelato. This stuff is Da Bomb ~ my own version of crack. Craig & Phil steer clear of it, rightly sensing they may come to physical harm if they dare to dip a spoon into it. I was under the illusion I wasn't getting enough calories ~ heh! I idly turned the Talenti container around to check out the nutritional facts. 240 calories per serving, 4 servings per container. Almost 1000 calories in this wee container! I am most certainly getting enough calories, as you see how I'm eating it ~ straight from the lovely container:)
Getting back into picking flowers, baking, housework :~P & errand-running, usually done in Full Make-Up. Not watching as much Bravo TV as last week. Curse you, Real Housewives!
Our dog, Shadow, is getting quite a workout these days. Between Phil's school books dribbling in via UPS & the Goodie Train that keeps stopping for me, Shadow is kept mighty busy monitoring all the activity.
My friend Monique tried to do a Stealth Goodie Drop yesterday. I heard the Dog Alarm & looked out the kitchen window to see Mo slinking up the driveway, trying to hush a wildly barking Shadow. "Shhhhhhh! Shhhhhhh!" She brought numerous thoughtful goodies, including this hilarious drinking vessel: A RedNek glass; a Ball jar with a straw. Suitable for all types of libations ;~) Thanks, Mo. It's in constant use.
FedEx man bravely walks up to the porch with a biiiiig box. For me! Inside was this lovely Fall arrangement from the Weaver Company. Thank you. It's beautiful!
A few days ago I took a call from our insurer, Aetna. It was Debbie from Aetna Care Management & this was an "Outreach Call". All I could think of was that the medical bills are starting to roll in to Aetna and Debbie was sent to ferret out what was going on. I was worried I would say the wrong thing (not sure what that would be though) and she would say, in Soup Nazi fashion: "Oops! HAHA! No more coverage for you! Good-bye!"
Insurance stuff scares me almost as much as cancer stuff :O
I went to Staples & bought a bunch of colorful folders so I can keep track of all the paperwork from various offices. Almost daily now, a new piece of paper from Aetna arrives in the mail.
Dr. O'Malley's team have been generous with their time, answering my questions & concerns. They always get back to me ~ I couldn't be more pleased with my care from them. I feel confident about the next step.
I probably won't have anything to post until after the TORS surgery. Thanks again for all the love!
