Happy Sunday everyone! How's your weekend going? How'd your week go? I figured I'd take a few minutes today to get a post up. Most days I try to read my blogs that I follow while I am eating lunch, but I don't really have a lot of time to sit down and compose a post. Like so many have reminded me it is just this season of life.
So what have I been up to?
Well, we have been dealing with some warmer than normal temperatures. It is cool in the morning, but then quickly warms up. We have had some beautiful sunrises though.
I worked 4 days this past week at 3 different schools. 2 of the days I worked at a school where the head cook was not there and she is really particular how she wants things, etc. Well, after the first day I guess she said that me and the other sub did a really nice job. This was a shock as complimenting does not come natural to this woman.
I did not work on Thursday, as I had a follow up appointment with my primary care doctor in regards to my cholesterol level and follow up to see how I am feeling. Well... my A1C is back to normal! My cholesterol is still high, although it is a little lower. She said it is going to be hard for me to lower it as it is hereditary. I will continue on the new meds for another 6 months to see if it continues to bring it down. I am still have a couple symptoms that are bothersome. I get exhausted EVERY day right around 5pm and it continues through the evening and I am usually asleep by 8:30-900PM. Also, I still cannot go up more than 1 flight of steps at a time without getting extremely out of breath or having my heart rate skyrocket. I also can't hike on any type of elevated path. My doc thinks this could still be a symptom of long term COVID issues, so she prescribed me an inhaler to use as a pretreatment if I go hiking to see if that helps. I told her that I have pretty much adjusted to just not doing those things. We shall see. Other than that she was pleased with my progress and with how my bloodwork looked. I will see her again in 6 months. I did ask her about the COVID vaccine and she is deferring any decision to my cardiologist so I will ask him at my next appointment.
After my doctors appointment, Bill and I went out to lunch and stopped in at Dollar Tree next door for Halloween decorations. Both Rebecca and Ben asked if we could decorate for Halloween this year. So I picked up a couple things to decorate with.
Speaking of decorating, on Saturday we went to my parents' house to carve pumpkins and to celebrate Jacob's early birthday (his actual birthday is tomorrow). The kids had a blast carving pumpkins to put on my parents' front porch.
We had a pizza party for Jacob's birthday, followed by chocolate lasagna and presents.
Jacob enjoyed his presents of a Google Play card, a wrestler, some books, and games. He was truly blessed.
Today, we have been to church and PSR. I have been doing laundry and trying to get some cleaning done. I am still not used to working and my house is a disaster. I should end this and get back to flipping laundry and getting some more stuff done.
Do you decorate for Halloween? Do you carve pumpkins? What have you been up to lately?
