So, I’d given Rocky options on if he didn’t want to get up.... We had a couple more things to do this week. When we’d gone for our check ups a couple weeks ago Rocky had mentioned loosing hair rapidly (it’s true he’s going bald) and the doctor asked for labs just to be sure it’s not something crazy. However, the labs came back inconclusive and he’d told Rocky to go back up there in 2 weeks. Yesterday was 2 weeks so we were going to do that either today or tomorrow. Then, he’d wanted to go to McKay’s to check on a specific movie.... so that was an option. I had told him it was up to him based on what time he got up. However, I was feeling good this morning so I woke him about 9:30.
Went to McKay’s and found 4 DragonLance books on my list that I need to complete having ALL of them. So, that was good.... and Rocky found the movie he was looking for for $3 and another he’d wanted. He’d had a good $40 in store credit and we only cut that in half so it’s all good :). We then went by the closest WalMart because I wanted to get a journal/planner to keep track of symptoms in. I have yet to find an app I like.... and this will allow me to keep all my appointments and a medicines list.... and then keep track of what we have tried....and what we will try. Then I can just take it and show a doctor frequency of symptoms instead of saying what I think is right.
Then we went to Outback.... I swear I used to love it.... now I just get irritated with the price and lack of.... meat?.... on the onion it was like 1/2 of it was fried skin and thin pieces.... also knowing that things are expensive there I opted for soup and salad. I need to be reminded that I don’t like it there. I’d rather have had onion rings at Burger King or Sonic. So not worth it to me.
We didn’t stop to smell the roses after that but still wanted our usual coffee at our fave coffee place at the mall so it was an in and out operation. We did talk to the barista while we watched her make our drinks. I actually love telling people “I like my coffee like I like my men.” I usually let them guess and they’ll say “tall and dark?” or something.... but it’s “sweet and creamy” which usually gets giggles.... or “Like the Beastie boys”.... in Intergalactic they say “I like my sugar with coffee and cream”.... lol
After that we went to the Dr.’s office for blood work. He made it in plenty of time. .... now we are home and he’s going to be making Meatloaf for dinner :) .... I’m about to start figuring out how to log the important things in this journal/planner. I want to keep track of caffeine, onions, peanut butter, barometric pressure, and symptoms (dizziness, fatigue, ear pressure, loud tinnitus and that thumping sound, and migraines) Seems like a lot to keep track of but I’m confident I can figure it out.
I’d felt pretty good until while we were at McKay’s I made a “quick run” to the car to get my book list I keep in the glove box. I’d gone faster than I should have. I was thinking I needed to hurry because Rocky would likely be done with what he was doing before I’d back . I wanted to have enough time to double check the list against the ones I would swear were on it. It was dumb. I had plenty of time it’s not like he was going to leave me there but naw I hurried and was slightly dizzy the rest of the day.... this was BEFORE eating the onion and coffee.... so.... need to be sure to get that in there.....
