A Little Randomness on a Sunday Evening....

I tried being lazy today and, for the most part, it worked.  My heal isn't hurting very much which means I must have been off me feet enough to call it a lazy day.  I need to make an appointment with a podiatrist but it keeps getting moved down the list of things to do.  I did call the health insurance company to make sure I didn't need a referral and found one I would like to try but just haven't made the appointment. 

Good news...Early last week, I looked at and fell in love with a little town home.  AND they allow pets.  On Wednesday, I received the call that, Yes, we did get the town home.  I paid the deposit and signed the lease on Friday.  We can start moving in on November 1st.  It has taken a load off of my mind knowing that when the snow settles into the valley my son won't be driving 30  miles to school.

I have been snackish all day.  I keep telling myself it is okay since I am a little PMS-ish. But I really know it isn't.  I need to do what my mom is doing, she had had to make some simple dietary changes for a bladder issue that I can't seem to spell.  She doesn't drink Coke anymore - she and I have that same addiction- now she drinks bottled or filtered water. And she doesn't each chocolate.  Simple changes and she has lost some weight and is looking pretty good.  While I am the biggest female in my immediate family.  It makes me sad.  But apparently not sad enough to make positive changes. 

For some reason, when I sleep on my back, I have really weird dreams.  Last night was no exception.  At one point I yelled at someone who IRL (in real life) desperately deserves to be put in her place.  Also, lately when I am sleeping deeply and having these random dreams - the last time I was a NASCAR driver who got lost trying to get to the race and drove the race car all around town.  Anyway, whenever I get into the deep, back laying, random dream sleep, I am woken up in the middle of the night by the whistle that says "Grandma fell".  It really doesn't say that but that is what it means. I stumble in half asleep, haul G-ma off the floor and into bed, then try and fail to get back into deep sleep mode.

Good night and I hope your week ahead is a great one.

That was random.
I loved it.

Yay for the condo, glad you got it but sorry you have to move so close the holidays....and in the cold.

SO much to say! Ok first, YAY, you found a townhouse that takes pets! I'm so happy for you and I know that this will take a huge weight off of you. Hope you'll be happy there and it all turns out just great! Next, you and me girl! The healthy eating starts today. I haven't weighed this much in years so today I am back to eating better and getting some exercise. I just want my pants to fit. I'm done making cookies. Third, that Nascar dream, you are completely stressed out and frustrated. That's what that's all about.

YAY! for the town home! You give me hope that I WILL find a car! I know what you mean about weight loss and simple changes. I know what to do but am usually not motivated to do it. I've had some recent success and am down a total of 12 lbs, but I think that's more due to stress than any deliberate changes. Still, I'll take it! :)

First, don't sleep on your back. Except I have those kinds of dreams too and it doesn't matter what I'm sleeping on. 2nd, hurray for the townhouse. yahoo and yippee! 3rd--yes, eating well is a challenge. I'm good for a while and then I fall like Grandma. 4th--does Grandma really fall out of bed two times a night? She needs care beyond what you are asked to give. That's too much, lady. I hope all is well. Doing without Coke? I'm sorry, I'd rather die I think.

Well clarify Grandma doesn't fall out of bed every night. She has only fallen twice in the middle of the night, both times while trying to get back into bed.

And I cannot do without Coke. I'll just cut back a little.

Congrats on the townhome! I think moving into your own place and relinquishing the care taking of Grandma is gonna be a GOOD thing!

Funny about dreams. I started a new medication and had a rage dream last night. Total and complete rage and destruction. Not sure how I feel about that : )
