There were some really good bands though. 2 Blues bands and a couple old Rock and Roll bands. The crowds in front of each kind of reflected the age group of the bands playing. Oh yeah... on a side street there was a hip hop DJ spinning records and a big group of the youngsters there. God... I sound old!
Bill and I counted over 20 "you poor thing" looks I got. He was never really aware of them before. I asked him a while ago when we would go shopping to watch peoples reaction to me. It's not like I watch for them, it's just almost sad how even old people will clear a path for me to walk, or parents will grab their kids from my way. It's a half way smile crossed with a little touch of pity. I can't stand it!
If it weren't for the heavy O2 tank in my purse that becomes miserable to carry around, I would forget I had on a cannula. If my feet and legs didn't swell (which is a new thing) when I walked I might not remember I have health issues. There really are moments that I don't have lung pain, and my breathing is comfortable, and I just think I am me. Then I am reminded I am not like everyone else and that bothers me more than you could imagine.
Any way... Bill and Layla and I had a lovely evening.
|Third Thursday, Klamath Falls downtown|
|This is Priscilla. I just love that face!!|
So, on September 2nd we are going to pick her up. I just can't wait.
As for my new diet plan. I am having a terrible time getting started. I need to rid the house again of all crap. Cookies, biscone's cookies, cheese... you know ... the good stuff.
I had Britt come over today and measure me. I was surprised at a few of the measurements and shocked by others. Let's just say I have my work cut out for me again. It seems since the end of April I have been on a downward spiral which really needs to stop!
I have been to Curves Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday so far this week. And, jumped on the trampoline a grand total of 5 minutes every day. I just have lost all progress and am starting out at the bottom and working up again.
Tomorrow I will consider being brave and posting my measurements and weight so I can document a beginning marker. Even though it shows on my BodyBugg program... If I am being "open and honest" with this blog that probably should include all things. I'll think on it tonight and get my nerve up to post it tomorrow.
Now... there is a really exhausted little girl asleep in my bed that I want to go snuggle with. Until tomorrow.
