Ice Cream Worked

Adding ice cream to my smoothies brought my weight back up.  It took three weeks, so there was a point where I thought I should reduce the number of times I go to the gym.  Carol convinced me not to do that.  She was right.

I spilled an infinitesimal amount of ginger ale across the table, so it touched the computer, fortunately, without doing harm.  I moved the water bottle to the coffee table.  I have to take in a massive amount of fluids because one of my supplements can harm my kidneys.

I found slicing into the chicken breasts for the stuffed recipe we liked challenging, so Carol suggested layering tenders.  Lena finally tasted it since she added chicken back into her diet and enjoyed it a lot.

The universal remote stopped working.  Carol thinks I may have dropped it and loosened the batteries.  That makes more work for her to reprogam it.  I apologized.  Meanwhile I can turn on the TV the old fashioned way.

The present moment is colorful.

More Spills

   Even though I stored my smoothies in travel coffee cups, I have spilled them twice.  So I changed to a water bottle with a built in straw.
   I spilled some ginger ale from the far side of the table and still got a bit on the computer.  That made me nervous.  Fortunately, there was no damage.  I moved the bottles to a coffee table.
    I am back up one of the pounds I had lost the week before.  Using ice cream helps.
    I realized I could watch old movies on demand.  I started with Blues Brothers, which I had somehow missed.  Very entertaining.
    The present moment is cool.

This and That

    As Dick and I were coming from the gym, I said I was down two pounds, which isn’t good.  He said he was down two pounds, too, which IS good.  Perspective is everything.  I said I wasn’t sure how to get mine back up, since I feel like I eat constantly, as it is.  It dawns on me I could add ice cream to my smoothies.
    Carol helped me figure out how to request a ride on the web site.
    I had stored a glass of smoothie in the refrigerator.  I spilled it, when I was getting it out, which made a mess.  I told Carol I thought I should stop making them and use Ensure instead.  She thought I was overreacting, and could solve the problem by putting a lid on it.  I wound up agreeing.
    Carol gets to hear, “You were right.”  She managed to program the universal remote so I can play our dvds on the nice relatively big TV.  It is easy to get discs in and out.  I am unafraid of using water bottles in that chair.
    The present moment is cloudy.
