Thawing Out Returning To Normal

I don't know about you, I'm beginning to thaw out a bit. The snow that Mother Nature provided us was just awesome enjoyed it on Christmas day and enjoyed it last week. I'm ready to get moving on to a little warmer weather.

One of the things that I have missed since having my surgery is the extra padding that kept me warm. I literally freeze now. But I'm not complaining please don't take it that way. I love my new self. And I truly don't mean that to sound snobbish in any way. Each day I work on getting even better. My journaling is going well. I sure hope yours is as well. I look forward to living a little longer by working with my tool that my Dr. Provided.

My friend at work that had this surgery a few years before me. Is my buddy, she is always thinking of me and sharing links to different things of interest or letting me know of something that is good for us. She sent me an email yesterday and told me that she has discovered a protein drink that is to die for. It's called Naked Juice .  I've noticed this in the stores, but when I would read the labels, yes it was loaded with lots of protein that our bodies need. However, I also took extreme notice to the sugar content. When I mentioned it to her, she said that was the good sugar. So I have picked me one up and will try it. It has 32 gm of protein in a 15.2 fl oz bottle.

Since sugar and I don't get along I will drink it here at home so that I will be close to all necessities needed should I have a episode with my non-friend Mr. Dumping Syndrome.

On another note, as we thaw out, we will begin to get back to normal. I mean a long week ahead with no days off anytime soon. I'm saving my time off for the Riverbend festival in Chattanooga in June. They have some really great headliners coming. Beach Boys, Miranda Lambert, Jefferson Starship (oh yeah) Huey Lewis and the news. This is just a touch of the talent that is yet to be announced that will be coming. Yes I'm telling my age. However, I'm still young at heart. I'm looking forward to the entertainment, I already have my pins ready.

As you've noticed I've been working on my blog a bit. I'm trying to learn and get a little creative with it. If it crashes I'll be up a creek.

Tah Tah for Now.
Enjoy the rest of your evening.

  1. Unfortunately ... we are not thawing out here at all. It is like a snow globe is being shaken outside at this very moment. We are in for 9 inches by morning. If you don't hear from me soon ... send a shovel and a snow blower.
