OMD, my dyslexia has hit a new owl.

Free day at home due to freezing rain and ice. emoticon I slept in, then got a lot of housework done. I sorted/purged/emptied 2 1/2 boxes of Mom's things. I can only do so much of that at a time or it gets to me. emoticon Proud of how much I let go of today. emoticon

Found some relief for my eyes. I taped them openish. emoticon I can still shut them and blink, but they droop so much that they force my eyelashes into my eyeballs which causes continuous scratching and irritation. I used the same tape that I used for the eye patch I had to wear right after surgery. After a few minutes, I don't feel the tape at all. It has been wonderful to go all day without the irritation. emoticon I have almost 3 more weeks of the eye therapy (drops, a heat mask, and vitamin e oil) before the eye doc will see me again. I may look like a loon, but I'm wearing this tape as long as it helps.

Our nephew is finally home from the hospital. emoticon Far as we know, the surgery fusing his spine was a success. emoticon We haven't pushed for too many details, and I know his parents are overwhelmed right now. emoticon They will share when they are rested and ready.

I loved having a day to myself at home. Looking forward to a 3 day weekend with hubby. Tonight we're going to relax and watch the new Lion King movie. I'm making fajitas for supper. I'll just have to eat mine without the tortillas, or any chips. Ho hum.

I've been doing great with my low carb diet. Doesn't mean I love it, I'm just behaving myself. It is hard not to feel deprived, and I'm often hungry at bedtime. Even though I have calories to spare and could have a snack, it is hard to find something that actually sounds good that doesn't have too many carbs. I find I'm going way over on protein and sodium most of the time, but am either meeting goal or going under on everything else. I REALLY miss fruit. I tried making the 0 carb cloud bread, and its okay, but molds really quickly. I think I'd like it better if I could figure out how to toast it. The first batch was too sticky to put in the toaster, and the pieces were small enough I was afraid I would have to turn the toaster upside down to get them out. I might try making them larger next time.

All in all, life is good.
