Tomorrow Will Be A Better Day

So much is running through my mind that I want to write about today and so little time. Let’s start at the beginning of the day and move on from there.

 Tomorrow Will Be A Better Day

This morning I had a lightbulb moment when I realized that I’m really scared to get a mammogram and have been avoiding it like the plague. The strange thing is that I have spent years begging doctors to let me get a mammogram because breast cancer runs in my family. My grandmother had it when she was very young so it’s always been in the back of my mind but now that I’m the right age to get it done I’m avoiding it. I suppose I should try to get in to see the doctor when I’m on vacation in a month.

 Tomorrow Will Be A Better Day

The next thing on my mind is my Chihuahua. Digger is not feeling well and Greg and I have had some serious talks about what we will have to do if he does not get better. It’s been a really hard day even though he looks fine in the above picture where he is wanting to kill me. It’s really just a look of love. icon wink Tomorrow Will Be A Better Day

Greg called and spoke to a well known vet doctor in the area today and he said that what is happening is normal with Digger but we still have some major concerns because something does not seem right. We are giving digger some joint and bone heath vitamins and we bought the ones from Green Bark (I got some samples from Swaggable) and as picky as Digger is when it comes to food and treats he goes crazy for these gummies so we bought the ones for bone health and hopefully that will help too.

I went for my usual walk during lunch and had some time to clear my head and just relax.

I had every intention on going to bible study tonight but I decided to come home and hang with Digger instead because he really has me worried. I was planning on doing a whole post about Michael Phelps but decided that I really don’t have anything to add that you would not already agree with or understand. He is in the public eye and has learned nothing from his past mistakes. The bad press in Maryland is getting depressing and makes me sad to admit I’m from here. I understand that he’s human and he makes mistakes but how many times are we suppose to give him a pass?!? I guess it will always be like that here because he is “one of our own” until he kills “your loved one” in a drunk driving accident…I wonder if people will care then?

Ok, I’m over it now and I’m going to relax with my baby boy and tomorrow will be a better day.

Believe in Something

1412075810 thumb Believe in Something

It’s the end of September and that means I only have one month to go before my 2 week vacation starts. I didn’t plan it that way but the timing was right and I had two weeks of time I had to use and it was open for the taking. To be honest I was really trying to get a week in September and a week in November but with the release of the iPhone I could not get the week in September I was going after. Anyways, I don’t have any real plans for the my time off work so it should just be a nice calm time for us before the holiday season hits.

I’m spending my lunch and breaks getting out of the office and going for a walk so I can stay active and clear my head at the time same so I’m going to be sad once the real colder weather gets here and I stop going for those nice little walks.

Tonight I’m going to bible study with a friend I met on YouTube that lives in my area. Him and his wife are super sweet and he is starting this new journey in his life and I wanted to go support him and in the process I will admit that I’m interested in learning more. When I was younger my parents had us go to Catholic church and I had my First Holy Communion but once my parents marriage started to fall apart we stopped going to church and I have never really gone back. There is nothing wrong with the church, I guess I was so young and just lost the connection I did have with the church. I’m not hear to preach religion because I don’t even know where my path will lead me but I know that I would like to have something to believe in and a way of better understanding the bible. This should be an interesting journey.

Ok, it’s almost time for me to get ready for work and pack up my cooler so I will catch up with y’all soon.

A Lesson in Apples

 A Lesson in Apples

I will keep todays post as short as I can because if you are like me than you are int he middle of getting ready for a new week. I’m taking a break between meal prep and laundry.

This weekend Greg and I went apple picking again and I did some online shopping. I need some new clothes for the cold weather. I will have some haul videos up next week but in the meantime I will leave you with my blog from yesterday and a small lesson on the different types of apples we picked yesterday.

Easy Broccoli

 Easy Broccoli

I don’t eat broccoli a lot because it sticks and Greg is not a fan of the smell and it can be a bit bland (if you ask me) but this recipe has plenty of flavor and it’s super easy to make and easy clean up. It’s been almost 10 years since I worked with my nutritionist and he was proud of the work I had done and was a little concerned about my lack of trying new things in the kitchen so he helped me understand the importance of spices.

 Easy Broccoli

This recipe is simple and done in less than 10 minutes.

What You Need:
4 cups of broccoli
1/4 cup chicken broth
1 tsp basil
1 tsp italian seasoning
1 tsp mrs dash original
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder

 Easy Broccoli

Place the broccoli in a microwave safe bowl and add spices. Mix the spices, chicken broth and broccoli together. Place vented bowl in microwave for 4 minutes. Stir or shake broccoli mixture and cook in vented bowl for another 4 minutes. Enjoy!
