just an overall pretty decent day despite one or two small complaints

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

First, I am just going to say this, and this is just my own opinion, I do not care at all for the new format on SP.
I constantly have trouble finding my friend feed and I dont like these changes, I never liked the new start page.
It is getting as bad as FB to make changes when everything was working just fine.
Ok, that being said, moving right along.

I have been trying to add some personal touches to my home. I bought some little plastic bowls, filled them with the seashells I found at the beach and added a small candle for the center. I bought some pretty colorful picture frames, and printed off some of my own pictures from the beach.
I found an idea to use poster frames, with old newspaper as the background, and add a post card of my choice in the center, or to use several in a pattern.
But all of these ideas I came up with on my own, or just found while surfing online.
For the life of me I cannot figure out how to use Pinterest.
I created an account, but I go on it and see something I like, but I cant find the instructions and if I try to navigate to the page, it tells me I need Java.
I am not really computer savvy.

The last 2 days I have done really well. Today better than yesterday.
I have stayed almost to the point on my calories. I have walked, I have gotten my veggies, taken my vitamins, drank my water.
And I hope to be able to stay on this streak.
It is really is true, even the smallest bit of exercise can change your outlook on the situation.
I had forgotten how I used the walking track and that hour with my music to help me think, work thru problems and find solutions and try to also lose weight and get healthy.
I am finding that place again.
Also, I am just really feeling good.
Energized, coming home to clean house and do some much needed declutter-ing.
I am working on some small artsy projects for my living room walls.
Maybe if they turn out ok, I will post some pictures.
Next, today I called once again to check on the results of my foot tests.
I was told the doctor had read them and forwarded a preliminary report to my doctor.
But the nurse told me that all she got was a fax, saying that they would be sending the report, but they never did.
It would be funny, almost like the confusion and misunderstandings of Three's Company, if not for the fact that I am going on a month without any news.
All I can do now is hope they tell me something soon.
I want to ask how they would feel if it were themselves, or their mom or sister.
I want to say to them, why do these tests if no one there is competent to read them.
I want to say all of that, but, I try to hold onto my temper and stay calm.
Well, I will just walk it off.

    Walking is so much better than working on an ulcer. You take care of yourself, and I hope you find your craft projects soothing.
