Negative tests, fried chicken, and a new day.

These are challenging times for a hypochondriac. The end is always one sneeze away, but the pandemic has made that even more of a challenge. Since the pandemic, I go out in the world, a few days later I’m home and a sore throat, body chills begin. I go get tested. The good news is …

Chicken Parmesan with Lemon Alfredo and Squash Noodles.

This weekend was full of fun activities. I feel a little guilty because we left our bubble and went to Temecula, Southern California wine country. We hung out with friends, including boat rides, vodka, carbs, and wine tasting. I check my blood sugar, and I have not gotten it under control today. There is good …

2/16 – Yay Blood Sugar!

Morning Blood Sugar This morning I woke up, and my blood sugar was 151, which is very unusual. Yesterday it was 214. I know I’ve told you guys this before, but my blood sugar is always very high in the morning, so I’m not sure what happened. I did take some Tylenol pm last night …

Chaffles and BS

I’m becoming addicted to Tik Tok. It’s so much fun, but I have so much I have to figure out. My videos are, meh, I need to figure out the sound because, for some reason, I’m not getting the opportunity to lower the volume of the music so you can hear me more. I have …

Who doesn’t love a good rack……of pork?

There are fewer things in life right now that make me happier than this rack of pork from Costco. At Thanksgiving, my husband and I went on a search for them. We asked the butcher at Costco if he thought they were going to be available this year, and he said no. Last year was …

12/12 – 12/13 Christmas, Target, and eggs.

I meant to write yesterday but zoom Christmas Parties, and hours of shopping got in the way. The night ended with more than a little bit of vodka and singing Broadway show tunes. I mean, every evening should end that way, right? For dinner last night we had marinated chicken legs from Costco and broccoli …

12/8/20 Walking, deli sandwiches, and pork roast!

Today was a much better day than yesterday. Except, I did not sleep as well last night as I would have liked to. I woke up with a bit of a backache, but that is not unusual. Oh, and I have occasional shooting pains in my sides. Damn, I’m so dramatic. I think I’m fine. …

Saturday check-in, this year has changed us.

My stomach is making noises like it’s warming up to be a member of a symphony orchestra. It’s a direct result of an inexpensive blend of red wine, ribs, cookies, ice cream, a cauliflower casserole, and finally, some delicious champagne we had last night. We had a friend who lives on the property over for …

Thanksgiving 2020

Thanksgiving was a little different this year for most of us. Instead of going out, we stayed at home; we had one neighbor who lives in the building join us. We knew she was safe, and we consider her in our pod. I thought we were going to order food, but it ended up that …

October 3, 2020

We went to San Diego yesterday for my sister-in-laws birthday celebration. There is a fantastic restaurant called Puesto that they wanted to go to. Their tacos are incredible, and I was so impressed that they had a lettuce wrap option for the taco’s so I could still eat right. The only thing that sucked was …
