Yesterday was the birthday of the husband in the couple I drive. He turned 87. I had to drive them last night! Still hurting too. I had eaten way too much already when I took them and only had 300 calories left for the day. We went to an awesome restaurant that I love. Houston’s restaurant.
I had a cheeseburger with no bread and a loaded baked potato. Then they made me share their desserts with them. I say made me but I was happy to! They both had a prime rib medium rare. We all had potatoes. Since it was his birthday, they do not sing, but they did put a candle in his apple cobbler dessert. The food was all good and I enjoyed every single bite! 900 calories over. The scale is showing a 1.2 pound gain. I actually expected more so I’ll take that!
I brought the couples bones home with a little meat on each of them for Amber. You’ve never seen a dog more excited! She was eating and I took a video. Right after, Eliza the girl cat came to investigate and Amber picked up her bone in her mouth and ran up the stairs! She finished her bone under my bed and now I have to crawl under there and find it so I can throw it away. She has another one in the fridge as well. Lucky dog!
Today I am driving down to Friendswood to see a chiropractor. I’m tired of this pain and this is a friend of a friend and I know he will take care of me. He did a neck thing for me 20 or so years ago and I have even sent my ex husband to this guy because he’s that good! And only $35 for an adjustment so I can’t complain about the drive. Chiropractors here in Houston are about $150 or more!
I want to go to the gym! Dammit! I also have to drive Mr. 95 year old tonight. And my mother wants me to take all this stuff to a consignment shop so I need my back to be better so I can pick stuff up, stand up easy, and go up and down our stairs without pain.
So that’s it for today. I’ll leave you with an Oliver picture of him on the shelving that’s now mostly cleared out and a picture of Amber having her butt up against me when I was trying to go to sleep.
