I am trying out my new anniversary gift.. my camera... I took some pictures of Bazzie and Cookie.. and then took it with us today ... We went to Collensville to go on a great puppy hunt... I did not take any photos of puppies.. however I did take a couple of things I saw along the way... the oddest being that the Preacher man is still standing on the street corner in Collensville by the Sonic Hamburger place and preaching still.. only now he has other people with him.. I wish I could have gotten a better picture .. next time I will take a video .. I admire people with great faith but the Preacher man only talks about sinners and damnation.. never how wonderful God is or that we should be tolerant of others etc etc... Today he was preaching about the Devil and Sin and as he Yelled in his Microphone.. or Megaphone.. He called us all sinners and we just loved sin and had no faith.. yada yada yada... okay he did not say .. Yada Yada Yada.. I did.. lol.. but you get the drift...
The next series of pictures is my Half assed homemade spagetti sauce and Spagetti... I can not have whole wheat Pasta anymore .. so I use regular now... I also use Barilla pasta and sauces.. then I added lean beef which I also drained any excess fat from.. I also.. sauted sweet onion and baby bellas together.. with a little bit of butter and olive oil.. Put it all together and you have my Half assed homemade spagetti.. and the last photo is the remains of the top of our weddng cake.. which we did taste.. I have to say the cake was good the frosting.. yikes.. lol... SO with no further ado I bring you a day in pictures....

Are you a coupon clipper? sometimes we are and sometimes we are not..
I met an interesting lady the other day who is an avid .. coupon clipper.. she and her friends are serious clippers and she says her friends are even more serious than she.. She knows a lady that regularly gets 100.00 worth of groceries for 25.00 . She said her friends and she have switched to using store brand canned veggies and frozen veggies unless there are good coupons for name brands.. and she is an avid shopper at Publix. She said that being a good coupon clipper is very time consuming but worth it too.. She even showed me her coupon carrier and her filing method... She has a average size family.. and she said she does well at the grocery considering the price hikes as of late...
Steve and I went to the new BASS PRO and OUTDOOR SHOP that opened Wednesday night here.. we went last night and boy its like a Disney world for hunters and sportsmen.. The drive up to the store once you turned into the driveway was beautifully lit at night.. I guess for the holidays... it was a narrow winding road.. through the woods.. there is a hiking trail and a little lake you can try boats out in.. IT even had an old fashioned General Store in it.. that served sandwhichs and icecream.. They had a huge shoe department upstairs, along with a electronic shooting gallery up there too.. TONS of hunting clothes and all types of Guns, fishing gear .. tents.. kyaks etc.. The place is HUGE!!! one of the biggest Bass Pro Shops .. Not being a hunter sort of person myself.. I still found it to be really neat.. and even bought Cookie and Baz some Doggies Rawhide Cow ears..they love those..
Speaking of Cookie she and I have a sleep issue now.. Seems when the weather gets cold.. Cookie has decided that she should sleep with us.. me specifically that I might freeze to death with out her to keep me warm.. She firmly believes it is her duty to snuggle between my legs and thus pinning me down in the bed where I can not move.. and will be perfectly warm with her being cozy too.. She only does this when the weather is cold.. Last year I started covering her with a blanket on her bed at the foot of our bed.. So tonight.. my little miss will get in her fluffy new doggie bed ( I bought her a new bed last month and she loves it) and tuck her in with a blanket.. and perhaps I will get the chance to sleep.. I know I know.. you are thinking why dont you kick the dog off the bed.. ? what a silly thought.. why on earth would I bannish Cookie from the bed.. and inhibit her protective nature of me? Yeah I know.. she is cold and she just wants to snuggle up and be warm.. and when Steve is out of town she knows she sleeps on the bed.. and when she was little she slept with us.. right between us but near the foot of the bed.. as she got older she would wiggle her way up the bed.. so her head would be between us and on a pillow.. lol she quickly learned that was not a good idea.. though it seemed so at the time.. I think once she has a blanket on she will be fine.. it worked last year so hopefully she will remember and it will work this year as well...
Well that about wraps it up for a Friday..
I do feel a lot better ... thanks for all your good wishes..
I see my nutritionist on Monday and am going to make a strong effort to start swimming religously at club.. Its good for and I feel better when I do it..
Wish me well
Wish you well too.
Have a great weekend!

The Common sense Honi saw her nutritionist Monday night.. Honi listened as her nutrionist told her you know.. 5 small meals a day.. smaller servings.. not eating late... and in Honi own thoughts she knew she could not eat like she had before... She could still have a fun Anniversary on Tuesday night..but she needed to let common sense be the leader. However Crisis ensued because Honi in her own warped wisdom decided FUCK EVERYTHING.. I am going to eat anything I want... to which she inhaled two thick lamb chops ( not that thick but normally thicker than she would have and usually she would only have ONE) a large amount of Lesur Green peas ( she has loved those since she was a little girl she reasoned) and real homemade mashed potatos prepared lovingly by her her wonderful husband. She got home the kitchen was candle lit.. and the Common Sense Honi apparently took a vacation while the Glutton Honi replaced her... oh and did I forget to mention the hot chocolate ( yes it was fat free and everything but that should have been dessert not a before dinner drink) and then we DID IT... ( NO NOT THAT PEOPLE .) WE opened our wedding cake top .. and proceeded to share a RICH delicate and believe it or not Still devine slice of cake a year later.... the icing I left off it was not that good.. but the cake was perfect .. it tasted like the day we got married.. no joke.. I could not believe it... Steve had bought a back up dessert from Fresh market had the cake not been good.. SO you ask me did you eat that too? 1 bite.. it is going back to the store today Steve bit into it and bit into a round piece of plastic... so that quieted the gluttonous one down... Little did she know what her body had planned for 2 hours later...
We watched tv.. talked .. relaxed... went to bed ( I took my adivan as usual for the past 3 weeks) and thats when the rath of hell showed up.. I knew something was wrong with me.. I had felt overly full and uncomfortable .. the first visit to the throne of YouATE TOO MUCH commenced, then the second visit , third visit.. and so forth .. each visit being worse than the one before.. ( TRYING HARD NOT TO BE TOO DISCRIPTIVE sorry if I offend) The final visit last 45 minutes... and midway ended with me SCREAMING FOR STEVE... Apparently I decided in my adivan haze that I needed to toss my cookies.. only when I stood up.. I FELL THANK GOD AGAINST THE WALL DOWN TO the cold ceramic tile floor and FAINTED.. In our master bedroom the toilet is behind the bathroom entrance door.. its a Small water closet .. and is often mistaken for a CLOSET... a lot of people think our bathroom has no toilet in it lol... so the toilet area is very small.. you could not fall over unless the door was open .. It could have been much worse.. instead of landing sitting up and slumping I could have fallen out and smacked my head on the the tub or something.. I scared my poor husand to death..this all took place in a matter of seconds.. ( but to my mind it felt like forever) my mouth was totally dry .. no saliva at all which made it hard for me talk.. Steve brought me a small cup of Ginger ale and just sat with me on the floor for a long time... I asked him to go get back in bed because I was about to get sick again.. the very last time was bad.. but I was able to walk back to bed... Oh by then Common sense Honi came back and berated the hell out of Gluttonous Honi.. who bargained as usual with God the whole time... Common Sense Honi wondered if this is what it finally took for Gluttonous Honi to realize that she has too go away and can never come back.. that her risk to Healthy Honi is far too dangerous... yep.. far too dangerous... Common Sense Honi and Healthy Honi sent Gluttonous Honi packing this morning at 5 am... banished from her body.. gone forever... today consists of saltine crackers , jello, ginger ale.. and maybe toast and a scrambled egg tonight... maybe..
A tale of Three Honis...
Wish me well
Wish you well too..
Please be sure and check out the recipe below by the way... many people have asked for it...

Honi's Yummy Banana Bread Light

Have been making this Banana bread and altering it until I finally got it to a perfect point..
SUB the sugar for SPLENDA BROWN SUGAR MIX ( look at back of package for equivelent measurement guide )
I also use 70% cocoa chips from Whole foods in place of semi sweet chips.. and I use chopped pecans instead of Walnuts..
I cut a little back on the oil and use 2 bananas per recipe..
All measurements aside from Splenda Brown sugar swap with the regular white sugar are the same. You double and triple this recipe easily...
Enjoy !
Wish me well
Wish you well too

A year ago today Steve and I were married... our family and friends.. were there.. and my Internet family heard all about it in the following weeks.. It was by far one of the most proudest and joyous moments in my life ever.

So much has transpired in a year..along with our marriage... having the wonderful experience of visiting Israel, celebrating the engagement of my niece Jennifer and her graduation from pharmacy school... surviving economic challenges as everyone else is too ... witnessing history on November 4th...
At the same time though there was sadness too.. Losing friends to illness .. Losing mom 4 months ago this past Saturday... On the one hand we know that we were blessed that she was there to celebrate with us and that she had a good life.. on the other.. Steve and I still feel a bit lost with out her... She was our weekend cohort.. sometimes we looked forward to it.. and sometimes not so much... but now that those sometimes are gone.. the emptiness she left behind is far bigger than anything I have ever known only connected in size to the loss of dad...
However, even with this year's uncertainties.. even with the losses we have experienced... there is joy..
When I look into my husband's eyes.. I am sure of things... I am hopeful.. and mostly I am happy,.
I am joyful over the smaller things in life that Steve does..
a perfect example of that .. is last week.. I was so stressed from work.. frazzled... upset.. Steve met me at the top of the steps, with homemade hot chocolate, made with skim milk, and topped off with a dollop of Redi Whip Fat free whipped cream.. it was a big hot steaming mug.. my frazzledness got left behind as I indulged before dinner in on of my favorite treats on a cool night...
Steve does not try to solve my world..... and I like that.. if I ask him to help me solve something, he does.. but he cheers me on.. encourages me.. or joins me in growling at whatever monster has annoyed me ... he listens.. most of the time...That is important to me... his laughter is like music to my ears.. and I get so tickled when I know something I have said has made him laugh... He never fails to make me happy.. . my home is in his arms.. and my heart .. well.. he is my heart... he sees me through... he believes in me well after I have given up.. and long after he should have given up on me.. sure we get frustrated with each other here and there.... but those moments are like tiny tiny tiny dots that help make up this brilliantly colored canvas of our lives together... he makes this life a great adventure.. he brings me joy.. and he walks with me no matter what.. he is my blessing...
As next week is Thanksgiving.. I will get an early start... I am Thankful for Steve... for all he does, for all he is.. for who I am because of his love .
I love you sweetness!
Happy 1st anniversary ..looking forward to Anniversary 2 and beyond...
~~~For me.. this year.. one of the coolest things I got to do .. I got to buy an anniversary card .. okay.. I bought 3 one that made me laugh, one that made me cry and one that made me smile.....
I have never bought one before for a husband.. my husband (smile)... ~~~~

Wishing you all well
Wish me well too...

JOE'S ITALIAN Pizza, Pasta and Cafe

Okay I promise ( but not really) that this will be the last installment (probably not) of that wonderful new Italian cafe I was telling you about..rather than go on and on .. I decided to post the menu... I really want to see these wonderful folks succeed.. so if you live in my area .. GO THERE NOW! if not.. come visit and GO THERE NOW!.. am I too demanding.. hmmm maybe... do you think?

Ohhh and we went shopping at this place called Rogers Trading Company.. they have all kinds of clothing, hiking apparel.. outdoor wear etc... we go there from time to time to look at shoes... so they had a pair of Salomon's...
on sale.. these shoes.. are normally priced 80.00 on up.. mine where marked down to 59.00 when I got to the cash register they were actually a lot less... 29.00 got 'em on now and they are heavenly to my feet.. I am not a high heel fluffy shoe wearer I like nice.. lifestyle shoes... you .. good looking and practical and sporty sort of... these fit the bill love them... Steve got a great pair .. dont remember the name but I do know it was a great mark down too.. I bought them for him for our Anniversary... yep.. can you believe those pictures above are nearly a year old.. in fact they will be a year old come Tuesday.. 1 whole year.. I will be doing a post regarding that year... either Monday or Tuesday...
Anyhow with out further ado..

Here is the menu for Joe's

Not an Epiphany at all.. I really enjoy food.. especially good food.. yeah . I am a foody and I am not going to be ashamed of that anymore.. especially when I do not waste calories on CRAP.. and really have a sit down good meal.... Last night I went to a wonderful new Italian cafe .. it was pretty far from where I live.. but I love spending time with my friends who I seldom see.. and with Steve being out of town until tommorow.. this was a great diverson.. of course I had starving pups at home when I got home.. who were mystified why Mommy did not run home to them and attend to their needs first.. (TOO FAR AWAY from where I was headed to go back home first) but they quickly forgave me when I feed them and scratched some bellies...
The company was great... but I have to say the food.. blew me away.. I was expecting typical southern style fried Italian crap that was going to make me sicker than sick.. much to my surprise... EVERYTHING IS HOUSE MADE.. EVERYTHING from the salad dressing to the desserts.. I had Eggplant Parm. Yeah I hear you yelling at me saying.. Honi how could you.. thats fried.. its horrible for you.. I beg to differ.. their eggplant parm.. is grilled .. and if you scrape off some of the cheese.. that helps too.. the sauce is homemade and rich in tomato chunks.. not runny but still loose enough to dip the warm bread in.. I tasted my friends manicotti .. I do not care for cream sauces.. . it had 3 sauces on it.. I am not sure of any but the pomadora .. which was good.. but here is the thing.. the pasta is in house made.. and you can tell.. the filling was there.. nothing was covered in sauces or cheeses .. each ingredient had its own distinct flavor.. really nice.. My other friend was suppose to have the lasagna but they ran out so she had spagetti and meatballs after she saw another tables order.. The meatballs were.. well.. MEAAATBALLS.. HUGE.. in house made.. fresh.. I did not try it.. but it was a beautiful traditional presentation..
We only had 2 issues for this new place that opened last night for its first run..
Our waitress bless her heart.. is Mexican. and could not describe any of the dishes well.. her description of the soup was... emm it has beans in it.. and noodles.. and.. emmm.. I am not sure.. lol.. it was kinda funny... and there was a BIG lapse of time from placing our order to recieving our 2 salads and 1 soup.. but the meal was well worth the wait... YES I was a pig.. I left a good bit of my pasta.. but I ate all the grilled eggplant parm.. it was HEAVENLY.. the servings were spot on.. NOT HUGE.. but not too small. I could have made two meals out of it especially with the side of spagetti but I did not.. as I said I left most of the spagetti.. I can tell why that eggplant parm is one of their specialties.. they ran out of the chicken parm too.. I guess they were not prepared that they would have a huge crowd like they did... they are well off the beaten path.. and not easy to find unless u know the area like my friends do.. but boy they were worth the adventure of getting there and waiting... How to eat healthy there you ask... ABSOLUTELY NO DESSERT.. okay okay have a bite or 2 of your friends... its all in house made.. sorry I am a sucker for in house or homemade food.. lol... Eat lots of salad.. its EXCELLENT.. full of colorful greens.. and very light dressing.l in fact they put it on .. a little too lightly.. share an entree.. or do the eggplant parm and scrape off a good bit of the cheese.. you wont be missing anything .. because its so yummy... drink your water .. and try and not have too much of the bread or skip it.. your meal is worth it if you wait... okay thats my review LOL..
Sigh... well its a typical work day.. hard .. and seemingly endless.. so I better get busy.
Wish me well
Wish you well too..
Critter.. YOU HAVE TO GO THE IS PLACE .. just be careful.. but Honey its AMAZING... email me and I will send you the directions and scan the menu so u can plan ahead...

So here is how it went.. I paid off my credit card bill in Sept.. In early Oct. I noticed a late charge.. called and argued with them about it... apparently they never gave me the correct closing amount to settle the card.. hence the other charge.. so I we come to an agreement on an amount I send that in in mid Oct. Sunday I randomly check the account and see another late charge while I am on the phone waiting to talk with someone about that STUPID CHARGE.. I notice pending charges for 182 dollars and some change.. now thats hard considering the asshat card is in my vault at the bank!!! SO I WONT USE THE FUCKING THING!!!!! .. So apparently someone got the card number.. sold it to someone in Texas and someone in YONKERS.. they used at the same time , same day ( SUNDAY) I happened to catch it... I AM IN ALABAMA.. so hence it was not me obviously.. I am not responsible for any charge.. and the wiped the wrong late charge off too.. and gave me a new account...
BE ALERT and pay attention to your reciepts and the creeps that might get their greasy hands on your number..
I caught it early... there is a lot of evil out there.. be careful what you do..
I am going to see the nutrionist tommorow night and we are going to work more on a IBS plan.. I am starting to eat more fiber and actually able to keep it more.. I still have to eat more carbs than I would like just because it stays with me...and I seem to be doing okay with certain protiens cooked certain ways.. i can eat soft boiled eggs fine.. scrambled eggs not so well.. I can eat white wheat toast but not wholewheat toast.. I can eat a small amount of my Kashi U cereal mixed with my Kashi Honey Sunshine cereal with skim milk..l but only a small amount.. Mashed potatos , cream of wheat.. are my good friends.. whole wheat pasta or even a whole wheat blend of pasta.. YIKES.. Broth soups fine.. Cream soups.. Nope.. a couple ounces of meat or chicken fine . more than that not so fine... Fish Fine.. veggies are a guessing game.. sometimes fine .. sometimes not so fine.. STRESS.. thats horrible for me.. not only do i get bad pain but my stomach goes bonkers... so thats where I am now.. You can well imagine my pain Sunday night when all this mess was discovered with the credit card..
but am better now..
Wish me well
Wish you well too!

In Memory of my dad.. who died 7 years ago today..

This poem is titled Tranistions.. I tried to think what my dad would say to me after his death... hope you like it..
I miss you dad.. hope you and mom can see what a great season Alabama is having so far.. I know you both would love this. Mom .. you especially would have loved that game last night.. Alabama did it again.. boy how Steve and I wish you both could have seen that game.. You would be proud.. I even watched it.. ( okay I did fall asleep for a little bit) and cheered when Alabama scored.. sigh....
I think you both would also be amazed at how the elections turned out too.. and unlike some of your close friends and even family.. I think you would be hopeful that things would be moving towards the better...

I had the endoscope yesterday...
a hernia and IBS.. but man .. that versed.. I can deal with that.. lol..
Here are things NOT to do when You are still under the influence of above mentioned drug... but first here is what happened when I was there..
I changed into a huge comfy gown * yes you read that right and had a terry cloth bathrobe as well.. I told you guys we belong to a club that has doctor facilities in it.. turns out the gastroenderologist works out of St. Vincents 119 once a week.. so when the time comes for my colonoscopy thats where I am going.. so is my husband since he uses the same gastro doctor.. it was a not pleasant situation made pleasant by kind nurses, staff and the drugs... I am also going to find a GYN I like out here and I can also get my mammagram done there too.. this place is 15 minutes from house.. and 5 minutes from my office.. I wish my regular doctor worked out of there too.. but alas he does not..So anyhow.. here is the rest of the story...
Only issue in right arm the vein blew so that had to go to the left arm.. so both arms are bruised.. and one arm is scorched.. ( explained below)
Don't call friends and then call them 5 minutes later asking if you called them.. and then calling them again 4 hours later asking the same thing..
Don't think you can bake banana bread late in the day because you feel better...
A) you forget you have bannana bread in the oven..
B) Hot pans are dangerous... Scorch on left arm taught me that..
All th0ugh the banana bread did turn out good...
So .. now here is the deal.... I gotta continue working on getting healthy.. the less weight I carry around my chest and belly.. the less affect the hernia will have...
It was a sad day for our community too yesterday.... over 1,000 people attended a funeral for a young 14 year old boy. who fought cancer with more tenacity, braveness and strength than I have ever heard.. I did not know him well.. I had seen him grow over the years.. I grew up with his Dad.. No parent should have to bury a child.. I have thought about this all through the fog that was my brain yesterday... and the only conclusion I can make.. the only thing I can find that satisfies me is that this young man no longer suffers... he is with a beloved uncle, his great grandmother and his grandmother now.. and he is running and jumping and free of pain... His funeral was indeed his funeral .. he planned it..
Prior to his death.. he asked his mother to leave the room.. so he could ask his father ( who is a doctor) what it was like to die.. what it will feel like as he goes.. what will happen to him.. I can not begin to imagine how this father. explained to his oldest son..what would happen.. I can not imagine what words he found to help his son transistion.. there are no words.. I could not go to the funeral because of the endoscopy... but a friend told me about it.. I thought about my rabbi who just days earlier had married my cousins ( I SAY COUSINS BECAUSE they both are my cousins from opposite sides of my family.. the groom is my cousin on my grandfathers side. (DADS father ) and the bride is my cousin on Grandmothers side ( DADS mother) at the beach.. and now here he was helping bury a child.. a child that had suffered for 6 years.. BUT never once wanted to be thought of as that kid with cancer.. never went to camp smile a mile.. ( a camp for kids with cancer) never once took a wish from the make a wish foundation.. he believed there were kids sicker than him who needed those things more than he did.. all he wanted was to be normal.. I thought about a lot of things over the past 24 hours.. I thought about my blessings... my sorrows.. my weaknesses and my strengths.. I thought about all the blessings of friendships I have both near.. and over the internet.. and far away... it was a day of rest and contemplation...
and thankfulness that my issues can be controlled..
it was a day of thankfulness and sorrow...
Wishing you all a great weekend
Wish me well
Wish you well too..

Yesterday proved to be the most historical day of my life.. as well as I would think yours..
I look at Obama and see a bridge.. two hands holding.... his mother was white his father black.. in him I hope America will join together and work for a more glorious country..will strive for the best in each other and not look at the worst.. The republicans in my neck of the woods.. spew venom right now... they are angry .. almost like spoiled children.. and that is really sad.. looking for the worst instead of saying.. hey.. this is how it is.. lets go with what we got.. and do the Best we can.. its really a shame... a huge shame...
Tommorow I have the endoscopy...
Monday I go to the nutritionist hopefully to start losing again.. I have maintained and maintained for months which I guess is good too..
So.. as we as a country face change.. and hopefully good change..
I hope I as an individual will change for the better , stronger, and healthier..
Wish me well
Wish you well too..

ROCK THE VOTE ( and get some free stuff too


WE voted at 7 am this morning..
Who ever wins makes history ... whoever does not win still makes history..
this is the time to get out there and do something.
Up until the very last minute I waivered back and forth... and I had to really think about our future the future of my husband's children and so forth down the line.. How can we make a better America, A Stronger America... A smarter America.. by voting.. by finding the candidate who best matches our needs as a people .. by finding someone who speaks plain.. and does not deliver hot air promises .. by finding a candidate who makes you feel that there is a chance the the future can be better than the past.. and after much thinking.. I made my choice....
Do the same... ROCK THE VOTE PEOPLE...
Off soap box.. dusting it off and putting it back wherever soap boxes go....
Did you feel the electricity in the air when you went to vote this morning???... we are in exciting times .. I saw ads that actually made me vote for the opposing candidate based on how tasteless they were.. We have seen a lot of hardball being played over the last few months... All I am hoping that whoever wins.. and hopefully the best choices will win.. can help this ailing country.. a once glorious and prideful unity of states.. now a bit discombobulated by economy and race...
Today .. this history making day.. I pray that each of our votes counts towards a better and more viable future..

In case you have not heard here are some free things going on today..

watch out they are not calorie kind...

A FREE CHICK FIL A SAMICH (at participating chickfilas)





OHHHHHH and there is still time.. for your write in vote.. COOKIE G. for president..

she promises:

NO TERRORISTS.. SHE WILL BITE 'EM ALL.. welll thats kinda a fib cuz she is not a biter.. but she will growl really fierce to scare them off .. yah..

She promises chew toys in every dog home

Vet check ups.. ( HEY U GOTTA BE HEALTHY DOGGIES and other assorted animals) FREE for all 4 leggers and even creepier critters too..

Dog treats easily accessible 24 hours a day..

NO WARS.. Cookie does not like confrontation so everyone will get along.. Cats will have their own continent.. ( Cookie.. sadly does not like cats.. Bazzie taught her at a young age they can scratch your eyeballs out) but she is honest always about her feelings..

Cookie also takes issues with fru fru dogs.. she is not sure if they are real or toys.. so all dogs will be dogs.. no bow ribbons, painted nails.. or weird fluffy haircuts.. and absolutley NO CLOTHES.. for doggies that is..

So when you cast your vote today and you simply have no idea who to choose.. VOTE COOKIE G. for President.. and BAZZIE for VP.. (he might argue this point as he is sure he is king of the house right now) ..

In all seriousness though..

God bless America
God bless the world
God bless us all.

I said I was 50.... one day

Yep .. when people ask me my age I say 50...... one day...
Saturday I celebrated birthday 46 .. we went to Sandestin for my cousin's wedding which was last night at sunset.. I have a feeling it was one of the first jewish weddings at that spot on the beach right at sunset.. it was beautiful and you could not have asked for better weather..
Steve brought me a Almond birthday cake which we took to the beach with us to share with everyone.. it was YUMMMMY,,,he brought it from New Orleans last Wednesday.. from one of his cake companies.. I must confess normally I am a straight chocolate nothing else kinda birthday girl.. but this almond cake was good.. it had a better cream icing.. which is like a light whipped butter cream.. but not as sweet or thick.. .. so I indulged saturday .. and a little on Sunday .. my tummy is still sick.. so I spent a fair amount of time on the throne not feeling to well.. I go for the endoscope on Thursday at 645 am.. I am I nervous.. yes.. but at the same time I have no other issues other than having to run to the bathroom usually after eating every now and then.. I still do not know what sets me off.. and stomach pain.. and tenderness.. I am praying that it is nothing serious and that it can be fixed .. the doctor thinks it might be an ulcer.. or simply IBS.. as I have said before all the symptoms started the day after mom died..So i have felt bad since July 16th.. it is TIME TO FEEL BETTER I SAY!....
Well.. wish me well
Wish you well too..
