The travelling one was hard to condense what I'd wish for down so it fit the parameters of the exercise. Once I realized that a good many of my wishes there dealt with me talking to myself....I just kinda lumped them into one. Cheating, maybe, but all were important and some alot more telling than others. The first section was actually the hardest of all of them. Most of what I truly wish for pretty much fits in the last sections of the questionnaire. The first section was also the section I was most afraid would come off terribly shallow....because that's where it would be the easiest place to do it.
On to other things. Sunday we got my new bike put together and I've been really faithful at getting on the bugger daily. Over the last 5 days, my average mph has gone from a 12.88 to a 15.72. Actually, it's more like a 16.42 if you don't count the very first day because the seat wasnt really set at the proper spot for me to pedal comfortably (it was set for slightly longer legs). I am being really good at making sure to do my pedalling for 30 minutes a day. It's not straight through as I sometimes need a break or three along the way.
This week's shot wasnt all that bad. I had very minimal reaction to it for a change and it didnt itch into the next day which was great. The nurse had been in touch with the dr covering for my allergist and they'd said that if Im having reactions into the next day and later that I need to repeat the dosage until there is hardly any reaction ( a lump 10 mm or SMALLER and barely any itching). What's this mean? It means that more than likely 2-3 weeks of the same dosages until the body adjusts. The nurse told me she's seen some whose bodies would fight an fight and then all of a sudden everything gets to be smooth sailing so who knows. I've noticed, however, that when I catch a meal beforehand there is barely any reaction at all. I told her about it and suggested she may keep it in the back of her mind for the next patient that comes along and has problems. This week I ate before I got the shot and will do it again next week. I dont know if it's coincidence or not but if it helps Im all for it right about now.
While we were in the dr's office I saw a vanity license plate that was too cute. The question I have is, is it written that way because the vehicle was a gift to a loved one named or with the nickname Shay? OR is it entirely possible this vehicle was gotten by divorce or other means and the plate is simply a cutesy way of saying touche (pronounced too-shay)? I see other really neat plates around here. On Tuesday I saw one I wish I had thought of getting for my husband's truck....it said "No Beans". *laffz*
The folliage has been quite lovely here, now that it's decided to get cold enough for a majority of the leaves to turn. The trees around the doctor's office have lost about half their leaves already. What a change in a week's time that was. Is it me or are the days going by really fast? Seems like it was just a few weeks ago we moved in here and now nearly 8 months have passed. Im hearing that some points north have been getting snow inducing temps already so it shouldnt be to much longer here. Already were getting days in the 50s and 60s with 40s overnight.
Sometime last week ago or so I grabbed a picture of the Logan's restaurant as seen from the road. The covered area to the right is outdoor seating. The parking is around the rear of the building and that porch wraps almost clear around the building. I think we'll be going to lunch there tomorrow after we go in for our flu shots. Usually I try to time all my dr visits for the beginning of the week. However, since Im having allergy shots, I cant have any other kind of shot on the same day. In fact, there's a 96 hour buffer zone where I cant get any shots of any kind. From 48 hours beforehand to 48 hours afterwards, Im a shotfree zone. Since the dr's office has a walk in clinic for shots only on M-W-F for the flu shots....this leaves me only Fridays when I can go in for my shot. *sigh* Not that I truly WANT another needle, I do know that it will be good for me in the long run. Especially since I tend to catch colds and illnesses really quick.
I was reading in Jess's blog the other day and she chose to write about the fun and benefits of sunglasses. Kudos on the entry dear. You are completely right with the connection on sunlight and cararacts. My now ex ended up developing those on both eyes in his mid-30s. I always suspected that it was because we'd moved to Louisiana and even in the bright sun he refused to wear some eye protection. Prescription glasses were too expensive and he refused to wear the ones that would go over his glasses and wrap around the sides. Anyhow, I treat sunglasses like jewelry. I have several pairs hanging by the door, a pair on hubby's desk for repair and spare pairs in each of the 2 vehicles. There are a total of 8 pairs I believe. One is even a fun leopard print and one pair has a rosy tint to them. The rose ones are used on cloudy days. Oh wait...I have 9 pairs! There is a light blue tinted pair on my desk for when the monitor is bothering my eyes.
Because of the hours we are running over here, it's gotten to be a bit of a squeeze getting things done on Tuesdays anymore. I've taken to getting my shots a bit later in the day so hubby can have a couple extra hours of sleep. On a normal Tuesday, we'd taken to getting my shot then going to supper then to WalMart and finally to the grocery store. Well we discovered a couple weeks ago that this was simply going to have to be reworked if we were going to be home for our shows at 8pm. A couple of weeks ago, before we'd adjusted the schedule somewhat, we'd just pulled into the grocery store when I looked up and saw the most beautiful moon I'd seen in a while.
