Just wanted to get on here and post something quick since I haven't been on in a few days and have been missing it.
Dad came home from the hospital last night. It's good but it's not. The doctors said he'd be in the hospital a month to two months. Then, after only three weeks, they send him home. It's got to do with the insurance company but it drives me nuts. This is a man who got multiple sclerosis as a result of fighting for his country in Vietnam and being exposed to Agent Orange. This is the thanks he gets? I know got a better outcome than a lot of his fellow soldiers and I'm grateful but it's frustrating now when his insurance... his GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEE insurance isn't covering this, that or the other thing.
I took my dress for Mary & Bill's wedding to be altered. The dress shop ordered me the size they did because when I gave them my measurements, my waist was a half inch larger than the manufacturer's recommendation for the size below. Fine. No worries. Well, when I took the dress to be altered, the seamstress said there was a pitching problem. It seems that the beaded design under the bust is going to be a problem for her. The result, she was afraid, would be a gaping of the bust off of my body. I'm picking the dress up on Saturday. I hope that it is far better than what she was explaining to me.
In other news, I joined Weight Watchers... again. I did quite well exercising and just watching what I was eating but with the craziness I've been dealing with this year, I needed some structure and something to get me jump started. So yesterday was my first day and I did pretty well. I decided to go with the Points program rather than Core. Yesterday I ate 5 points under what I should have. Today I'm meeting a girlfriend for dinner at Ruby Tuesday's. I looked at their nutritional information online earlier and I'm in trouble. Everything there is so laden with fat and calories. But even if I indulge tonight and follow the program until I weigh in again, I'm not terribly worried. I'm on the right track and that's what matters right now.
