Well, this isn’t fun…

Spacesaver

Been spending an inordinate amount of time here tonight and I don’t know why.  Haven’t had any signs of sickness, not even a stomach ache so, it has to be something I ate, but, to be honest, I can’t think of what.  Unless it was the licorice.  That’s the only thing I’ve eaten lately that isn’t in my regular diet.  I love black licorice so I bought some.  But, I made it last almost a week, which is good for me.  Hum.  Still, I don’t know…

My TV went out, sort of, this week.  No picture, just sound.  Good thing I had my DVR set to record all my favorite shows.  Will be getting a new, used TV tomorrow, just need to find a place for it.  It’s bigger and older (Analog NOT LED) so it won’t fit where my not working TV is.  I don’t have much room and even less electrical outlets.  But an idea is forming… just have to do some measuring to be sure…

Got my taxes done.  Getting a decent amount back, should help me get caught up on my bills and stuff.

One finally note, next month I have my hearing for my Disability.  So hope I win.  It would be such a big help financially…  Wish me luck.

Now, it’s back to the bathroom and then, hopefully, to bed.

Good night all.

So, it’s winter in so very many ways…

Well, I’ve been wanting to post for awhile, but there were a few things I had to be certain of first.  So, today I am certain.  There’s good news there’s bad news and there’s crappy news.  Good news first.  I have lost another 10 pounds.  I am officially UNDER 300 pounds.  I am so excited.  Thanks to Weight Watchers and my own self determination to get healthy by the end of this year.  I still have a lot more weight to lose, but I’m only concentrating on small bits at a time.  Won’t make myself crazy that way.  So, in total, I’ve lost close to 45 pounds.  Yea me!

Now for the bad news.  I have Costochondritis.  That’s a big word for the separation of the cartilage from the breast bone.  So, you can “bust a gut” from coughing and/or sneezing.  Or it could have been when I moved some fairly large, some what heavy boxes at work.  Now, IF i don’t do anything to strain my ribs (no heavy lifting, no hard coughing (as if that will happen) and no excessive sneezing (again, as if), it could take 6 weeks to 2 months for the cartilage to heal.  Oh joy.  Which also falls into the crappy news…

The hernia repair didn’t last.  It’s still very small, about the size of a quarter, but, the hernia is back.  So, I’m back to being very careful with what I lift and “keeping an eye on the hernia”.   And it’s in the same place as the previous hernia.   Oh well.

So, I am still processing all this stuff.  But instead of dwelling on it too much, I think I’m going to go have an ice cream sandwich.  Weight Watcher’s brand, of course…
