Sunday evening check in

It's been a whirlwind few days and I am very, very tired! Working backwards...I worked today, for 9 1/2 hours. Did not stop to go to the bathroom or eat lunch or ... anything! I ate two string cheeses and a couple sugar-free chocolates. Sheesh! I hate days like that ... especially Sundays!

Yesterday (planning ahead, thankfully) I had made a roast with celery, onion, and a few carrots in the slow cooker, so dinner was not an issue when I got home today. Although I've been wanting to get in the kitchen and make some stuff ... I'm not sure when that will happen.

We took Steve's dad out for an early dinner last night, his choice. He's Italian, so of course, he chose Macaroni Grill. I did great with dinner - had the salmon with broccoli and asparagus. But I did have some of the bread dipped in their yummy olive oil before the meal came ... darn that Macaroni Grill! Oh well, olive oil is r-e-a-l-l-y good for you, right? :-)

On Friday, after working all day I raced home and changed clothes so we could meet our Sunday School class for an outing to the baseball stadium downtown. We watched a Memphis Redbirds game and it was a lot of fun, but very tiring. It was a late night...after midnight, which is rare for us.

So ... it's been a hectic few days. This week is sure to be just as busy, since we're heading out of town this Friday to the mountains in Northern Arkansas. For a girl whose days usually consist of work, then home, fix an easy and quick dinner, then rest, it's a lot to deal with. I've got a list for this week -- get the oil changed, get my hair cut, go to the vet's to get Chance's food, so my evenings after work will be busy.

Still haven't heard from my NP. I need to talk to her office and see about getting in there for more tests, if that's what she recommends. I don't see how it can happen this week, but I am truly desperate to feel better. I guess I'll find out what she's thinking, then go from there.

Oh Girl,
Now wonder your so tired. It made me tired just reading it. I hope you find some time to sit down and relax for a few minutes before you take off on your vacation. But in case I don't talk to you before then, Have a wonderful, relaxing time. Drink of cup of coffee out on the deck for me if you have one.

Hey Vikki! I've been missing our email chats. Hopefully I'll have a chance to talk to you before Friday. I hope you're having a good week and that your vents are nice and clean!
