Good morning!

Working today first of three in a row.  I won't complain since Ted is doing 4.  Oh well, maybe I will.

Had a decent day off.  Washed the sheets, went to the gym and prepared three beans and quinoa lunches, and some whole wheat orzo with mushrooms and tempeh for dinners.  Had a Korean tofu dish for dinner.  

Still sticking to my cleanish diet of no processed foods, meat, dairy, added oils, sugar or salt.  Mainly this means not stress eating at work.  I find if I don't start eating the candy or donuts and just leave them alone I won't overeat them.  Ya think? I 'm not one of those "oh just one" type of eaters.  The scale is stuck, but that's okay, I did manage to get six pounds of extra fat off.  BP has responded somewhat better for the most part to the good eating 119/69 last night before bed.  Even at work the other day it was 132/82...hypertensive by the new guidelines of being over 130/80, but under the 160/90 my doctor wants "a man of your age" to be.

I'll break my diet soon enough as I have some dinner plans next week.

Better close now as the page spontaneously refreshed but this time saved what I wrote but not the title.  Getting the "this webpage is using significant memory.  Closing it may improve the responsiveness of your Mac.".  So I'd best close.  

Have a great day.

Morning Tweety 

Quiet day at work, was productive nonetheless 

Didn't go out with J, he's feeling better but we're going to wait until Sunday just to be sure

Ran out to Bed Bath and Beyond before the wintry weather was supposed to start.  Stayed in the rest of the night and watched anime

Got up fairly early this morning and did some cooking

Only had rain overnight but snow is starting now.  Hopefully won't be too messy.  Have a meeting of the environmental group and lunch with dad.

If the weather gets too bad dad and I will cancel lunch,since he has a bit of a drive to get here

Morning-Still feeling craptastic.  The cough is better, but I'm congested with no energy at all.  I'm on day 6 of work, but it's 5 8 hour days and 1 3 hour shift this AM.   I've done nothing this week except go to work, and come home and go to bed. I will be happy to have the whole day tomorrow to recharge.  It's unseasonably warm here, with temps around 60.  I opened all the windows in the house this AM, hoping to get rid of all the germy recycled air.  Niko is quite happy to have an open window to sit in.  I'm crossing my fingers I have enough zip tomorrow to do a beach walk.

Tweety-Good for you for keeping the weight off and eating mostly healthy.  The treats at work are a temptation.

Joe-I hope J feels better soon.  Be safe if you're out driving around.

Hope all have a good day.

Good Afternoon -

Just finished eating a delicious lunch/dinner that Amy made: Chicken Franciase! Yum! Getting ready for Second Sleep. Been wearing my Fit-Bit with me throughout the day. According to the all-wise Fit-Bit, my "First Sleep"  was judged as being "Fair". 

Last night at work, I was both Mr. ICU Nurse and Mr. Shift Director. The full-time night Shift Director called out sick. So, arrangements were made for me to fill in part of that 8-hour hole. Thankfully, our teen-tiny hospital was relatively "Q" last night. Still, there was a staffing hole for the day shift on Med/Surg that needed filling due to a sick call-out. (Nothing like asking people to work an extra shift, at 5:30/6:00 in the morning, on what is normally their day off from work. Ugh!) Hopefully tonight will be relatively "Q". 

Well. . . Sleep beckons. Hopefully the all-wise Fit-Bit will say "Great!!" for Second Sleep! L O L!

Cheers! 🙂

Ted

Nice sunny cool day today. I need to go to the post office so will tale pearl with me. 

Tomorrow I plan to attend a letter writing gt together at the library. We will be writing our State Senators and Assembly members in favor of a bill that will, if passed,  allow apartments and condos to be built close to transportation hubs without a parking place for each unit. 

Tuesday some of us will meet with elected leaders to show public support.

I plan to clean the floors and shower today. Nothing else so I don't have to go anywhere.

Hello to all ...

Coming up on 7 PM and supper will be ready shortly. Nannie started her crazies around 3:30 PM today. Last night, in spite of the 2nd PM med, she was up FIVE times before I went to bed at midnight. Wonder how it's going to go tonight? 

Time to eat, talk with you later ...
