How are all of you today? Hope this post finds you in the best of health and having a happy Spring. I don’t know about your weather but our weather has been rather cool for this time of year. It actually hit 78 today and will be there for the next couple of days before going back down to 64. Crazy weather!
I had a nice Mother’s Day with my son, LeRoy, stopping by with some beautiful flowers and heartfelt card. Of course, a big hug went along with it. Our Mom’s have both passed away but were in our thoughts on this day.
I’ve been busy converting more of our restaurants on DWLZ to Smart Points while keeping the Points and Points+ values. We have 249 restaurants updated to Smart Points. 713 restaurants on site. I have added a red heart next to the restaurants that have been updated to Smart Points on the Restaurant TOC page.
My doctor will no longer be taking my medical insurance so I’ve had to change doctors. I hate hunting down a doctor and hoping he’s a good one. I did pick one and had my first appointment on Friday, May 19th. Al and I both really liked him. He was thorough and had a great sense of humor. I’ve been dizzy with the room spinning a lot and he said it is most likely vertigo; not fun. My blood pressure was unusually high both times it was taken but I’m sure it’s from being nervous going to a new doctor. The doctor wasn’t concerned. Just in case, I didn’t eat or drink anything if blood work needed to be done. I did end up getting my blood work done. The doctor also said that I have sleep apnea and I agree. He said he couldn’t see the back of my throat. I am always tired still when I wake up in the morning. My orthopedic surgeon who put the screws in my right ankle also stated I had sleep apnea. The sleep test is expensive so will have to save up for it. I’m sure I need a c-pap. We pay cash for everything, so we wait on that test. I have a mammogram scheduled for May 25th. I think I’ll be happy with this doctor and he’s at a large clinic which has a lab, xray, and Urgent Care. On top of that, it’s very close to my apartment. Win-Win.
Between Emily and I being sick and us not having to watch the kids for a couple hours a day anymore, we haven’t had the kids here for awhile. We are going to watch the kids on Tuesday while LeRoy and Rachel go on a date. With them both working at Fred Meyers, they seldom get the same day off. Emily will spend the night and LeRoy will pick up Jake after their movie and dinner.

I was busy today doing some things that needed doing for awhile. I have put blackout drapes in my living room and dining room to keep it cooler in here. The sun hits those windows (big picture windows) all afternoon. There is no A/C in those rooms but we do have A/C in Al’s study and our bedroom. We run a fan down the hallway and get some cool air that way.
I’m so sick and tired of being overweight that I must do something about it, and soon. I want to enjoy my grandkids. I need to lose weight to protect my hips that were replaced in 2011. I’m going to be more diligent about drinking all my water and making better food choices. I also need to start tracking again to keep track of my eating.
