Don't worry about whether or not you yourself... if you did it was because you felt the need to say something more than once
I'm pretty sure I repeat myself a lot

Congratulations on losing those 3lbs, Bizi. It's not a lot, but it's a good start

I'm so happy for you that you are returning to Europe in the fall!!! That's wonderful!!!

Thank you kay! I hope the weather is good. need to start researching our hotels and areas that we are staying in.
This was kind of impulsive should be fun. It is only a week.


It is affordable, $2,600 dollars for airfare and hotel.

Like my family said, you only live once. And I will get to see the Klimt showI will try to post a link to the page.

Paris : une exposition numerique immersive sur Gustav Klimt - GOLEM13.FR : GOLEM13.FR


This is the site about the exhibit. There is a video that gives you a glimpse of the show which last about an hour and displays 3 different artist works.


It was a light day today. (one of my clients had fallen and broken her hip, had surgery and was home with 24 hour help, I feel sorry for her.)

Saw my first client at 10am so that allowed me to get up without the alarm. Grabbed my robe and went out to water my flowers. It is so satisfying watching them grow and it has only been a few days. I hope that watering them every day is ok. It had rained last night so I really did not need to water the lawn.(I wonder how long it takes grass to start growing from seed?) Rain is due for tomorrow. There is a storm heading towards the gulf....hurricane season starts june 1st so things are starting early it seems.
Had lunch with my hubby. We went to sandras health food cafe. I had a cup of chicken salad and a big bowl of veggie soup. It was very satisfying.
Jeff had the greek chicken salad, which was just ok.


The 1pm appointments were together in a retirement home. They are a really cute couple. Both lost their spouses, and found each other there, Have their own apartments but spend their time together in his apartment.
She kisses him and they hold hands all of the time. It is really sweet.
I started him soaking as I gave her a pedicure. Then she layed down for a nap while I worked on his feet.
The humorous/sad part of this story is that he doesn't know her name. I referred to her as his girl friend and he looked at me funny like he did not know what I was talking about. lol


After I sanitized my equipment and packed up my bag I left the complex and went to see my friend Doris. She lives not too too far away from the retirement home. We have developed a friendship over the years. I am 55 and she is 72. We went on vacation together last year, and had been talking about going to Branson the end of september. I told her of our decision to go over seas again, and that I was not able to travel with her this year. She understood.


On the way home I stopped by Golden Coral and picked up a pound of pot roast with mushrooms for dinner. Not the healthiest of dinners but I did not feel like cooking. And it is usually very good.
Made a salad, fresh greens and celery and tomatoes with balsamic dressing and shredded Parmesan cheese. It was a very good dinner. 2 small squares of chocolate finished the meal. yum! WE drink La Croix cranberry with our dinners.
I was on line for a bit after dinner and ended up chatting on line with a woman who is diagnosed bipolar 2 but not medicated currently.
I chatted with her for an hour. Then said that I wanted to go to the gym Which is true and I went to planet fitness. Walked on the tred mill over an hour and walk a 5k again at 5% incline. I have head sets to wear and listen to the tv shows, I watched burger wars tonight. Makes the time go by quickly.
Afterward I used the hydro massage bed. And it really felt good as my shoulders had tightened up during the walk.The bed heats you up and this was the first time that I had a hot flash while on the bed. Awful!
My shoulders are still tight so I will ask Jeff nicely to rub them.


I had better sign off and get ready for bed. I see 4 clients tomorrow, a normal day.

What a day, Bizi!

I'm so sorry about your client who broke her hip. It's wonderful that she can afford 24hr care. I hope that she can recover well enough so she can regain her independence.

The couple you mentioned sound adorable. It's so nice that they found love again so late in life. I guess you learn over the years that you need your own space tho!

I remember that you had some anxiety while making the plans for your last trip to Europe, but I remember you enjoyed it, too. I know that it would make sense to spend more more time since you're going so far, but a week is still a good amount of time. I can't believe the deal you''re getting!

You are still doing great with your diet, exercise, and staying AF!

Lunch was delicious. Veggie mousaka(egg plant and tomatoes) along with a big bowl of german style cabbage soup, with chicken sausage. It tasted like sour kraut and was delicious. Came home and took all of my meds and suppliments, I am full!.


I had a cancellation this after noon so after lunch I came home and checked out the forums and face book before I will do some billing.
I have about an hour to do some billing so I should be able to get somewhat caught up. Have to bill in order to get paid!


The pain in my breast is completely gone so am glad about that.

Have a great day yall.

Got up early today before my alarm. Slept well since the addition of zyprexa and melatonin. I slept well. No hang overs or side effects from my meds thankfully!


Last night, Had a real hankering to drink after work and was almost going to stop at whole foods for a beer, but then I thought about my diet and how alcohol sabotages my dieting so I drove right on by.
Went home and fixed a shrimp stew over green beans. Had some blueberries as well..

It was tasty and low carb!


We went to a concert last night where there was plenty of time before hand to drink but I just decided that I was not going to drink. It was not a hard choice thankfully. Hubby had a small gin and tonic for $7 and That was all for him. I did not drink anything not even water. We were able to sit in chairs and it was non smoking so that was great!!!

The concert was good so glad that we went. 7 different singers on stage taking turns singing original songs. It was a wide variety of folks from local areas and new orleans as well. Ani Defranco was one of the singers.


176.1 this morning. But have not gone to the bathroom in days, in fact can't remember when so that is concerning. I have taken extra magnesium oxide 2 days in a row still nothing. sorry if TMI.
Will drink lots of coffee this morning to see if I can get going! lol


I just made a late 5:30 appointment this evening.That way I won't be tempted to go to trivia, but will show up late and have a quick bit to eat for dinner there. That will be around 7 pm. Usually we go there around 5 to get a good spot/table.The bar fills up fairly quickly even though trivia does not start until 6;30, and usually is over by 8;30. I can go and eat and drink water, that is my plan. And I am sticking to it!


Have a great day y'all!
bizi
Looking forward to the 3 day weekend, no plans so far.
Need to water the grass and plants.


edited to add: 175.2 after going to the bathroom!!!!!
I will take it!

Worked late and came to trivia to meet hubby. Stayed for a little bit and then went to chipotle for dinner. I had a pork bowl sans rice and beans that is, making it a low carb dinner.


I fell today hard onto my knees at my clients apartment. I am starting to feel the aftermath. My back hurts and I went to the health food stored and bought some magnesium gel to have hubby rub on my back to night.


We are getting ready to watch a movie...The shape of water that won the academy award for best picture.


It rained a bit today. I happened to be caught in it when it was pouring!
It is only water and I won't melt!
