Good morning and happy Wednesday!
Yesterday was a great day! I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday- this week is just flying by.
I opted to skip my breakfast juice because I had a doctor’s appointment first thing in the morning and didn’t want it just sitting. When I got to the office, I made some toast with honey butter. Not the best choice, but I do love that new butter.
For lunch I had a Southwestern Chicken Flatbread from Panera and a large bowl of fruit. And certainly nothing else! Certainly not a carrot cake cupcake!
Today’s fruit bowl consisted of the normal apples, clementines, strawberries, and tomatoes; I also added in grapes and blackberries. It wasn’t as large of a bowl as I’ve been having since I got a little something from Panera.
The girls in the office find it so weird that I’ve been putting tomatoes in with my fruit. Is that weird? It is technically a fruit, and they’re delicious, so why is it weird?!
I went straight home after work, and then did some research on the computer while watching Friends. Netflix is dangerous; it’s always creating new monsters in me!
For dinner, I had a salad. This was not just any salad, oh no! This salad was like the tastiest salad in all the lands topped with magic. Ooh! It was good! Romaine lettuce, starfruit (not a fan of the starfruit), tomatoes, feta cheese, strawberries, avocado, spinach, croutons, chia seeds, and Costco’s mango salsa. As I was making it, I was a bit worried that all the different ingredients wouldn’t come together well. And yet, in the end they did!
After dinner the Boy and I ended our night with some intense Breaking Bad episodes. It’s funny, we both really love the show, but cannot wait to finish it because of just how intense it gets. Thinking about it, it’s actually silly, but when an episode finishes we have to remind ourselves to breathe because we are usually just too stunned to think, move, or even breathe. 😉 Have you ever watched a show that made you feel like that?
I’ll be working out of the office tomorrow as I am going with mom to a doctor’s appt. It’s a new doctor located in Winter Haven, which is about 45 minutes away. Mom has Rheumatoid Arthritis pretty bad, and late last year started developing a new symptom in which her hand just constantly tingles and she has this burning pain that stays in her fingers all the time, but will shoot up her arm when it flares. 😦 Her doctor referred her to a Neurologist back in November, after she was finally able to secure an appointment (mind you, 3 months in the future) she received a letter not too long ago that they needed to cancel the appointment.
One of my coworkers referred us to her neurologist, who was able to schedule my mom right away. I’m hoping we’ll be able to leave tomorrow with some answers.
My mom is a trooper and the strongest woman I know. She’s been dealing with (RA) pain for so long that it doesn’t even seem to phase her anymore, she’s become numb to it in a way, so when she complains about pain (what she’s experiencing in her hand), it’s kind of scary because that goes to show just how much pain she’s in.
So, here’s hoping for the best…
