Going to the Chapel...

One of my best friends is getting married next year!! She just announced her engagement and I am so excited. I feel like I'm getting married. I'm incredibly happy for her and I'm honored to be helping her out during this wonderful time of her life.

This is going to be a beautiful wedding. I'll keep you posted.

-Every state in the United States has temperatures at or below 32 degrees Fahrenheit today. I love cold weather so this makes me happy.

-Make sure you take care of your kidneys. When something goes wrong with them the pain is terrible. Awful. Go to the doctor as soon as you experience symptoms.

-I can't believe Thanksgiving is next week. Where has 2014 gone?!?

-I hope there will be peaceful protests around the world after the grand jury announces its decision in Ferguson, MO.

-Physical therapy is helping, it's painful but helping.

-The fat free pumpkin muffin/bread recipe was good, but not holiday worthy.

-I miss mi hija. So happy I get to see her soon!

So sick.

I ate a fast food hamburger for lunch yesterday. It was my first since my gallbladder was removed in May. I wish I had a time machine to go back. I would have stopped myself.

Fat has to stay out of my life.

I really hoped I would have been part of the 75% that have no issues with food after having the surgery. Not so.

I want to feel better. I want to be me again. I am determined to have a healthy and happy Holiday season!

So tired,

Daylight Savings Time

I love the time of the year when we turn our clocks back. The sun is so pretty in the morning and it gets dark around the time I'm getting ready for bed. The world is on my time schedule. It feels fantastic!

I'm seeing a new rheumatologist at the beginning of 2015. She's supposed to be the best. There is actually a waiting list to become a new patient. I have to keep a symptom diary to share at my first appointment. Writing down every thing that is wrong with me is more difficult than I imagined. It is helpful because I am starting to see a pattern. I will be making serious changes soon.

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching. I found a recipe for fat free pumpkin bread. I plan on making a loaf this week so I can test it out before I serve it to my family. I hope it's delicious. If it's not I have time to come up with a plan B.
